Daniel Lazar ben Tina Taabel Lea One of the soldiers badly injured on the flotilla boat is from Alon Shvut in Gush Etzion.. He had his ear cut off by a knife, it was just holding by a scrap of skin, was shot in the leg and has a very badly injured arm.
He is, thank G-d, recovering and the ear has been re-attached but it is going to be a very long and painful road to recovery.
The names of the rest of those injured in the recent “flotilla” incident , June 2010, are listed below. It is customary, in Jewish practice, to pray for an individual using his name and the name of his mother.

Below is the prayer for the welfare of IDF soldiers, as brought in translation by the Council of Young Israel who also publicized the list of wounded.
He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – may He
bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over
our land and the cities of our G-d from the border of the Lebanon to
the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the
Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.
May the Almighty cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down
before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our
fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague
and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every
May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them
salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for
them the verse: For it is the Lord, your G-d, Who goes with you to
battle your enemies for you in order to save you.
Now let us respond: Amen.
