Coronavirus: Top Israeli rabbis, U.S. envoy pray for Trump’s recovery

Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Top Israeli rabbis, U.S. envoy pray for Trump’s recovery” – below is their description.

Israel’s rabbis prayed for U.S. President Donald Trump to recover from COVID-19 on Monday, invoking his name in a Jewish holiday ceremony at Jerusalem’s Western Wall. Support for Trump, who recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moved the U.S. Embassy to the city, is strong among Israelis. The announcement on Oct. 2 that he and First Lady Melania Trump had contracted the coronavirus coincided with the Jewish high holy days, a time of reflection and penitence as well as of celebration. “May He who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Moses, Aaron, David and Solomon send healing to Donald John, son of Fred,” intoned Shmuel Rabinovitch, rabbi of Jerusalem’s Western Wall, to amens from congregants including Israel’s two chief rabbis and U.S. Ambassador David Friedman. “May the Holy Blessed One overflow with compassion for him, restore him, cure him, strengthen him, enliven him.” They were attending a ceremony, coinciding with the Sukkot festival, in which members of Judaism’s priestly caste bless the public in a chant at the Western Wall. With Israel struggling against a surge in coronavirus cases, attendance was drastically pared down this year. Attending the event as an invited guest, Friedman said he felt privileged to pray at the holy place for the recovery of those he knew and didn’t know.
