Watch: Former Sephardic Chief Rabbi Visits Front Line Troops

Former Sephardic Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar visited IDF soldiers at the border with Gaza Wednesday as the military continues preparations for a possible ground offensive to stamp-out rocket fire on Israeli civilians. Immediately after arriving at each place, the rabbi made a point of blessing the soldiers.

"I have come here in the name of the entire Nation of Israel in order to strengthen and pray with you," he said. "You should know that all the people of Israel stand behind you and pray for your success."
