Thousands Attend Kotel Prayer Rally


Thousands have arrived to participate in the earlier announced major prayer rally at the Kotel (Western Wall) in Jerusalem in order to pray for peace and the well being of all of the IDF.

The theme of the rally, "As One Man, As One Heart" has been organized under the auspices of the "Hayidabrot" organization.  

Participating in the rally will be Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, President of the Rabbinate, Rabbi David Lau, President of the Council of Torah Sages, Rabbi Shalom Cohen, and several other dignitaries, who will be leading prayers for the safety of our IDF soldiers, who go out ready to sacrifice their lives for the safety and security of Israel.

Flyers were distributed nationwide last week to various youth outreach groups, universities, colleges and synagogues to maximize turnout to the rally.  It was also promoted on social networking platforms inviting all Israel to participate.
