JNS.org – Congregants on Wednesday returned to Jerusalem’s Kehilat Bnei Torah synagogue to hold morning prayer services just a day after the gruesome terror attack there that left five dead.

“I was second to arrive this morning and I just burst into tears when I entered, but we are a god fearing people. It’s as if everything is normal here, they fixed everything right up like it used to be, they did too good of a job,” Kehilat Bnei Torah congregant Yossi Brazzeni toldYnet.

Approximately 30 congregants were joined at services by several Israeli political leaders, including Economy Minister Naftali Bennett (leader of the Habayit Hayehudi party) and Member of Knesset Rabbi Dov Lipman (Yesh Atid).

“I was inspired by the intensity of this morning’s prayers and was touched deeply by the cries and tears of those who publicly gave thanks to God for surviving yesterday’s attack,” Lipman said.

    My deepest sympathies, not only for the dead.
    From far away is very difficult to see how people can became so fanatic to do such crime. Massacre like this cannot be excused by the Palestinians fight for freedom. The action is clearly political-Islamic war taking pretending that the Mosque at the Mountain Mouth had been desecrate. How Christian’s that had so many church destroy by Muslim doing! What about Jews and Christians right to visit and worship there! Israel should take a drastic action soon all information are collected. Jordan said we Muslim are 1.8 million blackmail the Jews I regard of the mosque. Israel should replay Christians and Jews are more and had a God that is more powerful of satan.
