Here is a way to help Israel.
The Shmira project partners with soldiers, providing an umbrella of protection for our holy fighting brothers. Please visit the site and sign up as soon as you can. Then, once you have a name of a soldier, keep him or her in your thoughts, heart and speech with every bit of Torah that you learn, tefilot, mitzvot and private prayers. It will be as if the two of you are fighting together, and you will be protecting that soldier through your kavanah, tefilah and mitzvot. It only takes a minute.
May HaShem have rachamim on his People, Amen!
