We mourn for the hundreds of brave men and women killed since the attack by Hamas on Israel on October 7. The Jerusalem Post reports that the IDF has announced some of the names of the fallen heroes:

The soldiers named were Lt. Ariel Reich, 21, from Jerusalem; Cpl. Asif Luger, 21, from Yagur; Sgt. Adi Danan, 20, from Yavne; Staff-Sgt. Halel Solomon, 20, from Dimona; Staff-Sgt. Erez Mishlovsky, 20, from Oranit; Staff-Sgt. Adi Leon, 20, from Nili; Cpl. Ido Ovadia, 19, from Tel Aviv; Cpl. Lior Siminovich, 19, from Herzliya; and Staff-Sgt. Roei Dawi, 20, from Jerusalem; and 2nd-Lt. Pedaya Mark, from Otniel, Staff-Sgt. Roei Sargosti from Nahal Haro’eh Farm, Sgt. Shay Arvas from Holon, and Sgt. Itai Yehuda from Rishon Lezion.

On Wednesday evening, the IDF released the name of another soldier, Shalev Zion Sharabi, 22, from Teneh Omarim, from the 749 Battalion, who was killed in clashes in the northern Gaza Strip.

With sadness and mourning, we pray for these fallen heroes—may their memory be a blessing. Israel needs our support and prayers now more than ever. Pledge to pray for the Jewish people and support the heroes of the Holy Land!
