Six days after three young men had disappeared in the sea of Galilee during a sudden fierce storm , the bodies of two of the young men had been discovered,
Yesterday a Rabbi arrived and prayed for the missing young men to be found.
“The prayers had helped”
The bodies of the young men had been found 25 meters beneath the surface without light and oxygen..
“Our task was to help bring the deceased to burial and it was a great privilege to participate in this sacred duty.Let us hope the third missing young man will be found.”
Said a volunteer and the former mayer of Tiberias.
I thought about what people pray for;
To be happy
To find love
To be healthy
It seems odd for the family to pray for the burial of a young member but when you consider that the navy is still searching for a pilot whose airplane tell into the sea of Galilee 55 years ago and his body has never been recovered till now ,we can appreciate how wishes become so simple;to be able to know your loved one is dead and put to rest in a grave according to your belief system and tradition;to know the dead is dead behind doubt and to bid the loved one whose life left his body,a final goodbye.
