The families of the three missing yeshiva students are imploring their fellow Israelis to pray for the return of their loved ones, the head rabbis of the West Bank settlements in which they reside said on Friday.

“The coming of the Sabbath is an apt time for miracles, and we ask everyone, even those who are not accustomed to praying, to pray for the success of the army and the rescue of the missing boys,” read a statement from one of the families, which was communicated by the head rabbi of their settlement.

The chief rabbis of Israel called on the public to read Psalms and pray for the return of the young boys.

“The people of Israel unite to pray for the safety of the boys and for the security forces working to free them,” read a statement from the chief rabbinate.
