God sublime, abounding in compassion, grant perfect rest to the souls of all the martyred children of Israel who gave their lives for the sanctification of Thy name. May they be under the wings of Thy Divine Presence in the celestial realm of paradise, in the sphere of the holy and pure who shine resplendent as the luminous firmament. For the sanctified souls of those who fell in defense of the State of Israel, in all the battles for the formation of the State and in all her wars, and for all our brothers and sisters who fell victim to despicable acts of violence and terror. In their hallowed memory those in this congregation offer charity. Bind up their souls in the bonds of life with Thee as their eternal heritage. God of mercy, may they rest evermore in the shelter of Thy wings at peace, and let us say, Amen.
