Disappointed and Sad that We Didn't Celebrate the Kidnapped Boys' Return

I was really hoping that by now, over two weeks since the three teenage boys had been kidnapped by today, Rosh Chodesh Tammuz we'd be able to celebrate their return home safe and sound.  Instead we prayed for them at Shiloh Hakeduma, Tel Shiloh.

There is no better place to pray for children than Ancient Shiloh, where Chana prayed for a son to lead the Jewish People out of the anarchy the Time of the Judges, when there was no king and everyone did what they felt like doing...

We sincerely hope that before next Rosh Chodesh, Rosh Chodesh Av we will celebrate and thank G-d for the safe and healthy and speedy return of Gil-Ad, Naftali and Eyal.

Next month's Rosh Chodesh, Av, will be Monnday July 28, 2014. Please save the date.

You are such a wonderful Jewess. I wish i was there to daven with you. Yes, I, too wish they were back at home. It's a sickening thought. I tears at the soul....

Thank you, but it is the spirit of the Niblicsl Chana who encourages us.

Baruch Hashem!

Batya, i agree with Leah, and i agree with you too =but to a point.
The Spirit of Chana encourages you, because you look for all these spiriual things, and then share it with the rest of those who read your blog.
SO you are the one helping us to know and think and ponder and increase us in faith.
The boys are not home, but Hashem knows, and we will just keep on davening and pleading and may we soon here good news. Amen.
Batya, you are an inspiration to many, you inspire me, i am Noahide, i do not know your email address. So here i sign as anon.
Hashem bless you and yours, and ALL of Am Israel.
Hashem bless the 3 boys, and keep them safe. Amen.
