have mercy on our troops and pro-
tect them from harm. The essence of
prayer is when you recognize your
ultimate destiny and victory is
through the hands of God.
"The midrash tells us (Bereshit
Rabba 42:7) that when the world is
in turmoil it is an auspicious time to
pray for the coming of Mashiach
(Messiah), who will usher in an era
of peace and tranquility."
RABBI SHERWIN WINE
"I choose to be opti-
mistic," said Rabbi
Sherwin Wine of the
Birmingham Temple in
Hussein is a positive
the dispute over America
going into Iraq without the nod of
the United Nations and the resulting
broken alliances, he said looking
ahead is necessary.
Now that a war has begun, I want
to look toward a swift American vic-
tory to minimize the number of
casualties and so that picking up the
pieces will not be harder," he said.
"Such a victory would certainly also
have a positive effect on Israel."

RABBI MICHAEL COHEN
"I have told my congre-
gation that this is an
important time to pray,"
said Rabbi Michael
Cohen of Keter Torah
Synagogue in West
Bloomfield. 'And not
only to pray for the
armed forces going into
Iraq, but for the people
in Israel cowering in sealed rooms,
waiting for a possible Scud attack." -
"We need to try to feel, as much
as possible, what they are going
through," he said. "One of the rea-
sons we visit the sick is for us to
understand better how they feel and
to pray in the correct way.
In the same_ way, we need to talk
about and describe what others are
going through. I spoke in my syna-
gogue about the sealed rooms and
about the dilemma of deciding if
someone in a sealed room should
lock their door to keep out gas or
unlock it and risk others entering.
Understanding their fears helps us in
the way we pray."
