Praying together for the recovery of their wounded friends

The terrorist attack caught the Golani soldiers on a tour of Jerusalem before their swearing-in ceremony.

Despite the attack, the soldiers and commanders decided to come to the Western Wall, hold the swearing-in ceremony, and pray together for the recovery of their wounded friends.
We, along with the entire Jewish nation, join their prayers and wish a speedy recovery to all the wounded.
