‘Mini Yom Kippur’ On Behalf of Captured Boys


Rabbis affiliated with religious Zionism have joined together in a call to hold a “mini Yom Kippur” (Day of Atonement) today (Thursday), saying that “All of our hearts are beating together with those of the families,” (of the captured boys).

Rabbi Haim Druckman, one of the leaders of contemporary religious Zionism and head of the “Or Etzion” yeshiva (Torah academy), spoke on behalf of his fellow rabbis and called to the public to hold ‘mini Yom Kippur’ prayers today on behalf of the safe return of the three captured boys.
