Updates and list of injured soldiers and civilians

Share Button

I am reposting the following from an email list called Survival During Hard Times. Please send updates or corrections to mominisrael@gmail.com.

When Jews pray for the sick, they include the patient’s Hebrew first (and middle) name, the word “ben” for son of or “bat” for daughter of, and the mother’s Hebrew name.

Updated January 26, 2009

Please pray for our wounded soldiers and civilians. This list below is
incomplete. Please send us any more names that should be included
here, mother’s names where missing, corrections and/or any other

updated info about the condition of these soldiers.

May we only hear good news and may they all be healed b’ezrat HaShem

(G-d willing).

This message was forwarded to us:

Netanel ben Mazel Tov, Israeli soldier wounded in his right arm and
leg, asks us to convey this message: “Thank you for all your prayers
for us soldiers. All the prayers help. May G-d repay you only good.”
Then he beseeches us to pray for his buddy Ben, who needs prayers far
more than he does. Ben ben Batya is in critical condition.

Please pray for our wounded soldiers and civilians. Please send us
any more names that should be included here, mother’s names where

condition of these soldiers.

May we only hear good news and may they all be healed b’ezrat HaShem

  1. Lion of Zion says:

    you left off one name from the list of missing/kidnapped soldiers.
    it’s amazing that there is so much military action taking place in gaza, yet i hear no one speaking about rescuing him as a goal.
    i assume that one reason not to include his rescue as a goal of the war is so that the government doesn’t look weak (to israelis or arabs) if it can’t bring him home (as in lebanon, where this was an expected goal)

  2. mother in israel says:

    LOZ: His name is on the top of the list of injured, but I copied it to the list of missing/kidnapped soldiers as well.
    Israelis haven’t forgotten about Shalit.

  3. Lion of Zion says:

    yeah, i noticed it on top when i went back to link to the post.
    i’m sure they haven’t forgotten, but are people hopeful that the army will bring him home?

  4. johnhoffman says:

    I’ll also pray for the arabs, who have been living under OCCUPATION for over 60 years.

  5. israel is not telling truth on number of killed soldiers as usual. the lebannon conflict of 119 is wrong its 121!

  6. good to hear at least one jew cares about palestinians, average people who didnt deserve this destruction…these kids will grow up traumatic with killing jews as their life’s goal..no wonder..then people ll call em terrorists never asking whats the root of problem?DUH! Hamas is here to stay stronger, Arafat was only one from Fata they respected as former fighter!

  7. John Paul 2 visit in 2ooo, its a shame israel forgot his messages of hope..2o th century started with hope!

  8. Above casualty statement has merits…according to today s new york times one israeli soldier was killed by suicide bomber and there r many more..deaths not included in official casualty mfa list!!!FACTS..reason?psychological warfare that ll backfire!

  9. I dont think its fair to israelis that their gov is keeping quiet on real number of deaths, all these war criminals do is bs themselves n world but what goes up will come down hard, crashing on their stupid ignorant hypocritical lying empty heads..im surprised peres is no better..noblepeace!prize? LOL

  10. I wonder if egypt could give gaza 100km2 of land…poor gazans even ran out of burial place now that cemeteries bombed! even dead are super dangerterrorists!

  11. Avi Ben Shoshana full name is Avraham Aharon ben Shoshana Raizel. He is B”H out of surgery. Continue to daven for him.

  12. mother in israel says:

  13. mother in israel says:

    Is Avraham Aharon’s last name Balut?

  14. you might want to add Jonathan ben malka (jonathan pollard to your list)

  15. Thanks for keeping this updated, I had been looking for such a list and was unable to locate it. (I wasn’t able to find the e-mail list you mentioned, it doesn’t seem to be on Yahoo, how does one subscribe?)
