“I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
I wait for the LORD
more than the watchmen wait for the morning”
(Psalm 130:5-6)

This week, Israel observed Yom HaZikaron in a much different way than she ever has before. President Reuven Rivlin and a small group of masked IDF soldiers and family members of Israel’s fallen gathered at the Western Wall to honor the watchmen who made the ultimate sacrifice for the Jewish state. Shabbat shalom, friends.
