In advance of this year’s Passover celebrations, set to take place during the war in Gaza, while hostages are still being held captive, the Chief Rabbi of Israel composed a special prayer to be recited during the Passover Seders before V’hi She’amda, specifically dedicated to the safe return of all the hostages.

I decided to create a beautiful Canva printable card with this prayer on it so that we can all recite it at our own Seder tables this year.

As families gather around their Seder tables, this prayer echoes our collective yearning for the hostages’ safe return.

May all the hostages safely return home to their loved ones before Passover so this prayer does not have to be recited.
