After the completion of Operation Pillar of Defense, students and staff of Yeshivat Lev Hatorah decided to get together to produce a song that would express their prayers and feelings during the week of tension. "After a week of intensity in the South of Israel", explain the producers of the clip, which can be viewed bellow, "all of the nation of Israel finally felt the pain and began to understand what the citizens of Sderot and other cities of the South have been feeling for years".

Gabe Rosenfeld saw that during the days of missiles and air-strikes the internet was filled with well-wishers and blessings to the soldiers and citizens of Israel. Rosenfeld decided to write, and as his friends say - as rocket fire escalated and emotions were flowing, the words to this song began to write themselves. With the help of his Yeshiva, Yeshivat Lev HaTorah in Ramat Bet Shemesh, this song became more than just an idea. 

The song describes the emotions of a young man who loses contact with his younger brother during a "Tzeva Adom" - Red Alert Siren. "This song is not just an attempt at understanding the brothers and what they are going through but it is also a sign of hope", explain the producers, "If the nation of Israel can begin to care, feel, and pray about other Jews around the world regardless of affiliation, then maybe situations like this would not even occur. This is the focus and goal of Yeshivat Lev HaTorah and Gabe and friends have done a truly inspiring job in getting this important message across."

Lyrics:
I hear a sound
I look in every way 
Not a soul in sight 
I Find a place to lay
I feel the wave
Running through my veins
I cry out to hashem 
Bemunah shelema
I lift my head I look around the room
My brothers in the corner
What have I to do?
I walk across sit down next to him
I don't know what to say
It's gonna be okay
Chorus:
Oh Hashem help us get through
I see the fear of every single jew
This is not a dream come true
Hashem is watching over you 
I think it's safe, I take a look outside
Look down in the water
I look up to the sky
I see my brother a tear drop in his eye, try to hold back but then I start to cry 
I clear my thoughts wipe my tears away hoping its all over the sound 
Begins to play, the clock is ticking 
Hope that I'll be fine, forgot about 
My brother I pray it's not his time
Chorus:
Oh Hashem help us get through
I see the fear of every single jew
This is not a dream come true
Hashem is watching over you
A distant shadow, a man dressed in green holding a little child, what does this mean
The soldier drops him, feet land on the ground, I see my little brother, he jumps in to my arms 
Chorus:
Oh Hashem help me get through
I have the fear of every single Jew
This is not my dream come true
Hashems still watching over you
