JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)– Police estimate over 30,000 Israelis gathered at the Western Wall on Sunday to pray for the safe release of three yeshiva students who were kidnapped in the West Bank last Thursday.
The three teens, one of which is a dual American-Israeli citizen, were abducted while hitchhiking south of Jerusalem Thursday night, sparking a manhunt throughout the West Bank.
"We are proving to our enemies that the people of Israel live on, and we will never be broken," Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau said.
"The entire nation came to the Western Wall tonight, as one person with one heart, united in prayer for the safety of the hostages; may they soon return to their families and their nation," he added.
