#EyalGiladNaftali




We are praying for:

אייל בן איריס תשורה
גילעד מיכאל בן בת גלים
יעקב נפתלי בן רחל דבורה

The gematria of all 3 names together is 3309.  On gezageza, I found that there are only 3 verses that have the gematria of 3309:


1) Bereishit 4:12
כִּי תַעֲבֹד אֶת-הָאֲדָמָה, לֹא-תֹסֵף תֵּת-כֹּחָהּ לָךְ; נָע וָנָד, תִּהְיֶה בָאָרֶץ

This is the punishment given to Kayin: he will be a wanderer in the land. Just like Kayin was punished, the Jewish nation is being punished in that we are not able to remain settled with our boys in some hidden location. We are also wandering throughout the land to find them. We can therefore translate the verse like this: When you work the land to find the boys, you won't be immediately successful and the land won't give the boys to you right away. You will need to move everywhere and wander in the land to find them.

2) Bereishit 16:1
וְשָׂרַי אֵשֶׁת אַבְרָם, לֹא יָלְדָה לוֹ; וְלָהּ שִׁפְחָה מִצְרִית, וּשְׁמָהּ הָגָר

This is the verse that started all the trouble.  It is the descendants of the son of Hagar who gives us so many of our problems nowadays, including this evil kidnapping.  As the Zohar (Va'era 32a) writes: Woe for that time! For because Sarah delayed, [she asked Avraham to take Hagar] and Hagar had a son for Avraham.  Woe to that time indeed.

 וַיֵּלֶךְ מֶלֶךְ יִשְׂרָאֵל וּמֶלֶךְ-יְהוּדָה, וּמֶלֶךְ אֱדוֹם, וַיָּסֹבּוּ, דֶּרֶךְ שִׁבְעַת יָמִים; וְלֹא-הָיָה מַיִם לַמַּחֲנֶה וְלַבְּהֵמָה, אֲשֶׁר בְּרַגְלֵיהֶם

The State of Israel, the religious Jews and even Johnny-Come-Lately Edom are going out to fight against the Moabites/Palestinians and they realize that they need Hashem's blessing before they run out of spiritual protection.  May our Ahdut at this time stand us in good stead and help deliver the boys out of the hand of the evil Hamas.

Thank you for all your efforts in this matzav. This was especially relevant.

I think they are being held in a cave or an underground tunnel. That's why they said Israel would never find them!
