The IDF Chief Cantor, Lt. Col. Shai Abramson, has released a new version of the Mi Sheberach prayer for the welfare of the IDF soldiers.

The prayer is sung to the tune of “Eretz Tzvi”, a song originally recorded by famous Israeli singer Yehoram Gaon for the movie Mitvsa Yonatan, an Israeli film from 1977 based on Operation Entebbe, in which Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s brother, Yoni, was killed.

Cantor Lt. Col. Abramson is accompanied by the Pirchey Yisrael children’s choir.
