The Times of Israel (http://bit.ly/1lC2AaU) reports Rabbis and residents of the Etzion bloc gathered where officials believe the yeshiva students were taken.
The Tag Meir forum, an organization created to fight Jewish nationalist vandalism targeting Palestinians, organized the session. While Tag Meir typically demonstrates at sites of attacks by Jewish extremists, Gadi Gevaryahu, the group’s founder, said he could not stand by “while an entire nation is crying out.”
Meimad minister Rabbi Michael Melchior, educator Rabbi Yoel Bin Nun and Hadassah Froman, widow of rabbi and peace activist Menachem Froman, were in attendance with a few Muslims.
Rabbi Melchior stated he spoke to Islamic clerics who demanded the immediate release of the teenagers.
Eliaz Cohen, an Israeli poet and peace activist from Kibbutz Kfar Etzion, said, “I came here to surprise God, to make him happy.”
“We [Jews and Muslims] pray to the same God, but it’s been a long time since he heard us praying together.”
