Chaim starts by saying he wants to take a moment to “take a breath” and remember all the sons and daughters of Abraham who have fallen in battle and been murdered by terrorists.

He quotes 1 Samuel 25:29; Yet a man has risen to pursue you and seek your life, but the life of my lord shall be bound in the bundle of the living with the Lord your God; and the lives of your enemies He shall sling out, as from the pocket of a sling.

He reminds his viewers that his name “Chaim” means “life” and he says that there are many in Israel who are sitting “shiva” or in mourning, right now for their loved ones who have been killed. He repeats the mourners prayer, which is in Aramaic (the language spoken by Jesus and His disciples) and he translates part of it into English for his viewers.

Throughout the world which He has created according to His will. May He establish His kingdom bring forth His redemption and hasten the coming of His Moshiach.

In your lifetime and during your days,and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon;and say, Amen.

May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity. Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored, adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One.

Blessed be He, beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that

are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

He Who makes peace (Between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur substitute: “the peace”) in His heavens, may He make peace for us and for all Israel; and say, Amen.
