Tomorrow, Nov. 7, marks one month since Hamas launched its brutal attack on Israel, massacring 1,400 men, women and children, including 33 Americans.
Christians and Jews worldwide are coming together to fight the spiritual battle for the Jewish State.
Rabbis, Christian leaders and members of Israel's Knesset will gather at the Great Synagogue in Jerusalem tonight for a special National Day of Prayer.
Rabbi Tuly Weisz, an Orthodox rabbi, who's spearheading the event, appeared on Monday's edition of The 700 Club to talk about the event.
Wiesz explained in the Jewish tradition, Jews mark 30 days following the burial of a loved one, as the mourning period to some extent diminishes. In Hebrew, the time is called the Shloshim, and the Shloshim ceremony will be held at the Great Synagogue on Monday evening for those who were murdered by Hamas terrorists on Oct. 7.
In addition to the rabbis and Christian leaders who will be speaking at the event, Rachel Goldberg, the mother of Hersh Goldberg-Polin, her eldest child and only son who was abducted by Hamas at a music festival in southern Israel, will also be speaking.
When asked why it is important for Christians and Jews to stand together right now, the rabbi told 700 Club host Gordon Roberson, "Christians understand that their faith is linked with the faith of the Jewish people and with Israel. We have seen in our lifetime such great miracles. God returning the people of Israel to the land of Israel. The fulfillment of biblical promises shows that God keeps his promises and that He is active in our world."
"And Christians have been supporting Israel for decades because it is the greatest sign of the eternity of the Bible and God's promises," Wiesz noted. "And so Christians are with us in our fight against radical Islam and our fight against evil. The Hamas terrorists, radical Islam, are not shy about expressing their views: first, the Saturday people and then the Sunday people."
The rabbi explained the best way to pray for Israel today is through the words of King David. It's a prayer Jews have been saying since Oct. 7, he said.
"We have been pouring our hearts into the prayers and into the psalms. And King David's words and through the songs is what unites us. In Israel today, the posters that are everywhere – the whole country is covered in blue and white posters that say in Hebrew two words that mean 'TOGETHER WE WILL WIN,'" Wiesz said. "We're seeing unprecedented levels of unity here in Israel."
"And as a rabbi who works with the Christian population through my organization Israel365, I believe (the words) TOGETHER WE WILL WIN also refers to the spiritual partnership between Christians and Jews. TOGETHER WE WILL WIN," he said.
