I feel so sad. I don't know what to do. I'm praying so much, crying and saying tehillim. I just feel sooooo guilty doing regular, mundane activities as I', thinking about these boys, my brothers, and their families, and the 1000's of young soldiers (also my brothers) who are going into dangerous areas. They're so young and must be so scared, I feel so bad and wish I could do more! God, please accept everyone's tears, look at the achdus, unity, generated from this incomprehensible act, and please Hashem, fulfill the bracha of Matir Assurim, and bring them back alive speedily to us achshav!!

Thank you Dina

If that really is your name and not as I suspect our learned Rav trying to make amends for not mentioning our brave Israeli soldiers searching for the boys in his opening Shpiel. THANKYOU too for trying to speak IVRIT. Your "Achshav" (now) was spot-on but I hasten to correct your 'unity'.....that's "achdut"
Keep at it girl.......All the best......Ari
