Kidnapped Yeshiva Boys in Hevron Area - Please Pray for Them


Yaakov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah
Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim
Eyal ben Iris Teshurah

(Rav David Lau Shlit"a calls on people to say Tehillim chapter 121, and tells security forces to even desecrate Shabbat in order to bring the boys to safety.)

(Rav Shalom Cohen Shlit"a calls for prayers, Rav Shelomo Moshe Amar Shlit"a calls on women to say Tehillim and add extra Shabbat candles for the 3 missing boys.)

(The mother of one of the boys went to Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlit"a for him to pray for her son.  He told her his learning will be in his merit.  He called upon the Tzibbur to learn and pray for the boys.  Rav Shmuel Auerbach Shlit"a said to say chapters of Tehillim on Friday night in every synagogue and Yeshiva.  Rav Shlomo Zalman Grossman Shlit"a from Elad also said to add Tehillim after prayers.  One of the mothers contacted the Belzer Rebbe Shlit"a and he instructed people to pray for them.  Rav Kanievsky Shlit"a and Rav Shteinman Shlit"a instructed everyone to say chapters of Tehillim after Friday night prayers and for women to have them in mind when lighting candles.)

(The Rishon Letzion Rav Yitzhak Yosef Shlit"a calls for opening the Aron and saying Tehillim on Shabbat morning.)

UPDATES (I'll continue to post updates as I see them BL"N)

Israel Newsflash: 3 Yeshiva Boys Kidnapped by Arabs (Tzav Shemonah announced!)

Netanyahu to Kerry: Feared abductions a result of letting Hamas into Palestinian government

(Devarim 28:32
בָּנֶיךָ וּבְנֹתֶיךָ נְתֻנִים לְעַם אַחֵר, וְעֵינֶיךָ רֹאוֹת, וְכָלוֹת אֲלֵיהֶם, כָּל-הַיּוֹם; וְאֵין לְאֵל, יָדֶךָ.
Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day; and there shall be nought in the power of thy hand.
and Targum Yonatan explains "and there shall be nought in the power of thy hand" as: You don't have good deeds under your belt that would provide the spiritual power to pray to Hashem with the proper intent to help. If I can add my 2 cents in, perhaps this is a call for good deeds from everyone so that our prayers will be effective.)

Missing teens: Time is not on their side

Right and left wing officials offer prayers for missing teenagers

Sources: 2 of the 3 boys are from Rav Steinsaltz Shlit"a's Yeshiva called "Yeshivat Makor Chaim"

3 yeshiva students missing, feared kidnapped outside Jerusalem
Jewish News received word via Congregation Beth Tefillah newsletter emailed today by Rabbi Pinchas Allouche, a student of Rabbi Steinsaltz.
In a press release issued today, The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations expressed deep concern for the three 16- year-olds.
“We pray for their safe return and urge everyone to include them in their prayers this Sabbath.” They expressed concern and solidarity in a letter to Prime Minister Netanyahu and said that American Jewry stands together with the government and people of Israel, and particularly, the families of the three youths.
Rabbi Steinsaltz and the Chief Rabbinate of Israel have suggested reading Psalms 20 and 21 [YY- I'm guessing this is a typo and really should be 121] and giving tzedakah every day until the boys are found, Rabbi Allouche wrote. In addition, those lighting candles this evening are asked to add a prayer for the boys' return.

Signing off for Shabbat.  May we only hear good news.

Yes, good point. I wasn't going to go there yet, but I'm glad you brought it up. Also, the Yerushalayim beach that many prominent Rabbanim are against.

y, my family and i are praying . my sons have already passed this email for prayer out to australian orth r's chabad, and the r in vietnam and canada.
i was shocked and dismayed to see the gay parada in ta. this should not happen in the holy land.this should not be, not the Holy Land ,its so heartbreaking.
i was very worried to see the last two lines in debka. the apparent culprits said they will never be found. sounded so ominious, i dont know when the non jewish world will wake up and leave ysr alone.

Why the knesset endorses homosexual lifestyles in tel avive is very sad ~ young schoolchildren in there elementry schools in tel avive learn that this lifestyle is fine ~ and acceptable for them // we wonder why tragerdies like these 3 youngmen happen to us ?? its right in front of our faces the reasons . Know one knows if this sickness is nurture or nature , but the Torah is clear in parshat Kedoshime 2 things 1 its called an abomination and 2 it warrants death by both the passive male and the active male by stoning . Now we get to the ikker a sin done in prvt is much different then one done in public , all so much more public flaunting of one of the worst of all the sins in the Torah done in public for the whole world to view . What are the rebbes and rabbis saying are there any voices ? Im searching the webb to hear them ... cant find any ... why are they rebbes and rabbis then ?? Is this the Torah Moses received on Sinai , im ashamed to be a jew with such a spectacle in the holy Land ~!
