Sign up now and we’ll send you an active combat soldier’s name soon. http://theshmiraproject.com/
Israel is in a state of war with many of its neighbors, and even the ones with peace treaties have tremendous political turmoil and instability. Right now combat soldiers are in clear and present danger. These soldiers frequently go into hostile areas: patrolling Israel’s borders from terrorism abroad, and preempting terrorism from within.
The Hebrew word “shmira” (pronounced shmeerah) means “guarding” or “protecting”. In modern Hebrew, shmira also means guard duty.
The Shmira Project is a person to person match that everyone can do. It follows the ancient practice of pairing physical effort with spiritual effort. The families of soldiers enjoy the reassurance of spiritual support for their children. Participants enjoy knowing that they bring about unity and connectedness.There are absolutely no fees.

thanks for the tipJuly 23, 2014 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #1026255July 24, 2014 2:17 am at 2:17 am #1026256
The online site works well. I signed up and got a soldier’s name and I entered my son’s name Pinchas Shalom ben Yocheved Esther (who is in Gaza) and I got a call from a distant relative in a different state who happened to have gotten his name(this is truly yad hashem).
What a great way of all of us being connected.
May all our chayalim come home safely.July 24, 2014 4:27 am at 4:27 am #1026257

Gram – I will add your son’s name to the name of the soldier I was paired up with. May Hashem keep Pinchas Shalom safe and healthy, as well as the rest of klal Yisroel, and bring an end to this Galus.July 25, 2014 1:58 am at 1:58 am #1026258

Besurot tovot and may all our heartfelt tefillot be answered swiftly and affirmatively! Omein Kein Yehe Razon!July 25, 2014 12:43 pm at 12:43 pm #1026260
All the davening is very important. I want to suggest two segulos that everyone can do almost all the time and which might well save lives.
1) Saying the name of Avraham Avinu’s mother is said to protect from danger — Amaslai bas Karnevo. Rabbonim have told me that it can be said even in unclean places and with an unclear body or hands.
2) Before Lt. Birenbaum, ?”?, went to fight in WWII, Rav Hutner, ??”?, told him to say Psalm 91 and in particular verse 7: ???? ???? ??? ????? ????? ???? ?? ???, A thousand will fall from your side, and ten thousand will not approach your right side.
?? ????? ????? ?? ??? – every Jew has a part in every other Jew, so if one person is doing these things at a moment when one some other Jew needs the protection it can help. Please spread these ideas as widely as possible, the more people who do it can only help.July 25, 2014 12:50 pm at 12:50 pm #1026261
We have already learned of tragic losses to Klal Yisroel. A friend of mine lost his great-nephew. May Hashem watch over all of our precious children and keep them safe as they fight this milchama for which they never asked. All our tfilos are with our chayalim and their families, who are also all OUR family.July 27, 2014 4:23 am at 4:23 am #1026262

Por, thanks to you too,I value the suggested segulos very much!July 27, 2014 1:36 pm at 1:36 pm #1026263

Thank you for all who davened for my son Pinchas Shalon ben Yocheved Esther. B”H he got out of Gaza today and just like this turned our tsha b’av into a happy day, so too should moshiach come NOW and turn Tsha b”av into a day for all to celebrate.August 5, 2014 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #1026265
