Knesset Members from all the parties, religious and non-religious alike, gathered on Monday to pray together for the safe return of the three yeshiva students who were abducted by Hamas.

The MKs were joined by Knesset employees and other public officials.

“All of us are here at the Knesset, but our hearts and our minds are with the three boys, our hearts and minds are with their families, and our hearts and minds are with the members of the army who are trying to rescue the boys,” MK Dov Lipman (Yesh Atid), told Arutz Sheva.

“It was very important for us to come together and to pray for their welfare,” he added. “There are moments when you put aside all political disputes and you join together as one nation.”
