Musical hallel Gershon Ellinson

Joy continues at the Givat Oz V'Gaon outpost, the community started on a Gush Etzion hilltop in the memory of Naftali Frenkel (16), Gilad Sha'ar (16), and Eyal Yifrah (19), h"yd, who were murdered earlier this year by Hamas terrorists. 

David Litke and Avi Bernstein led a musical Hallel, or festive prayer service, in honor of the Sukkot (Feast of the Tabernacle) holiday on Sunday morning at the site. 

Sukkot is traditionally kept as a holiday overflowing with joy, and the musical Hallel service - mimicking how the prayers were led in Temple-era services - sought to bring life to the community erected only in July.
