  1. Rabbi Chaim Shmulevitz of the Mirrer Yeshivah (born 1902 CE, died 1979 CE) used to ask every year during Neilah that people daven for the soldiers of the army of Israel.

    Rabbi Yosef Dov Soloveitchik (born 1903 CE, died 1993 CE) once referred to an oil-stained, grime-covered Israeli Army uniform as “bigdei kodesh” – holy garments.

    Rabbi Avigdor Miller (a popular Chareidi Rabbi and author, born 1908 CE, died 2001 CE) delivered a free public lecture in the last year of his life, in which he said we should pray for the Israeli Army:
    “If they are defending us, then we should pray for them.”

    Rabbi Lazer Brody (a contemporary Breslov Rabbi) taught:
    “…HaShem should protect the soldiers and the police…
    we have to express our thanks to every Israeli soldier and police-man…”

    Jews who teach hate against the Israeli Army, especially those Jews who live in Israel, are guilty of:

    [1] being poresh min hatzibur

    [2] lacking hakarat hatov

    [3] repaying good with evil (see Mishlei/Proverbs, chapter 17, verse 13)

    [4] failing to judge their fellow Jews favorably (Avot, chapter 1, paragraph 6)

    [5] failing to share communal burdens ( Avot, chapter 6, paragraph 6) נוֹשֵׂא בְעֹל עִם חֲבֵרוֹ

    [6] relying on miracles (tractate Pesachim, page 64B) for national defense

    [7] failing to save Jewish lives, which is like saving the entire world (Sanhedrin 37A)

    Rav Shteinman, Rav Chaim Kanievsky Daven for IDF Soldiers Fighting in Gaza, 2014 July 18

    “In light of the IDF’s ground incursion into Gaza, Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman and Rav Chaim Kanievsky gathered today – as did Jews across Eretz Yisroel – at shuls and botei medrash at 1 p.m. to say Tehillim and daven for the soldiers currently in harm’s way, battling murderous, blood-thirsty terrorists.Rav Shmuel Auerbach instructed bnei yeshiva to remain in their yeshivos for Shabbos, without exception.”

    “The Vizhnitzer Rebbe davened at the kevorim of the admorim of Vizhnitz shortly after midnight for the success of the IDF operation.”

    “The Sadigura Rebbe instructed his followers to gather and daven in light of the situation.”

    “Rav Shalom Cohen, Rosh Yeshivas Porat Yosef, called on the public to daven for the soldiers fighting in Gaza.”
