Statement From World Mizrachi: Captain Daniel Perez

It is with immense pain and deep sadness that I share with you that Captain Daniel Perez, 22- years-old, has been declared as a fallen soldier, captured by a terror organization. The funeral took place this week and the family is sitting shiva.

Over the past 163 days we have desperately davened for better news. Throughout that time, the Perez family has inspired us and strengthened us as we have sought to strengthen them. The global tefillot for his well-being will now become global wishes of comfort.

This news came to the family on 7 Adar, the yahrzeit of Moshe Rabbeinu, whose burial place is unknown, and has thus become a date associated with mourning for all those whose burial places are unknown. Just as we prayed and hoped for Daniel’s return, we continue to pray and hope for his return to a Kever Yisrael.

May Hashem comfort Rav Doron, Shelley and the entire family amongst all mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim, and may we see every single hostage return home.

Rabbi Danny Mirvis

Acting CEO, World Mizrachi
