The video below shows a fascinating glimpse into one of the largest prayer-rallies in Israel's history.

It shows the hundreds of thousands of hareidi Jews who gathered in Jerusalem Sunday, for a prayer session protesting the bill that would place financial and criminal sanctions on hareidi men who do not enlist to the military. The video shows the huge gathering reciting the declaration that opens the Shema Yisrael prayer, followed by the repeated declaration "Hashem is G-d."
