Re: French shootings: please pray.
The victims: Rabbi Jonathan Sandler, his two sons, Gavriel, 6, Aryeh, 3, and Miriam Monsonego, 7, daughter of the school's headmaster.
An Israeli Zaka volunteer stands next to the bodies of Monday’s shootings in a morgue before their funeral in Jerusalem.
The Father of mercy who dwells on high, in His great mercy will remember with compassion the pious, upright and blameless the holy communities, who laid down their lives for the sanctification of His name.
They were loved and pleasant in their lives and in death they were not parted from Him. They were swifter than eagles and stronger than lions to carry out the will of their Maker, and the desire of their steadfast God.
May our Lord remember them for good together with the other righteous of the world and may He redress the spilled blood of His servants as it is written in the Torah of Moses the man of God:
"O nations, make His people rejoice for He will redress the blood of His servants. He will retaliate against His enemies and appease His land and His people". (Deuteronomy 32:43)
Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it on the islands from afar, and say, "He Who scattered Israel will gather them together and watch them as a shepherd his flock."
