          Soldiers of Israel, beloved members of our nation, pillars of strength, may God be with you brave soldiers… today you have fulfilled the oath of generations "If I forget you Jerusalem, let my right hand lose it's strength"

          Your right hand, the right hand of God enabled this historic phase of our redemption. 

          The divine presence, which has never left the Kotel, will now treat before the people of Israel. May God be blessed that we have been privileged to reach this exceptional and exalted time in the history of the nation.

          Rav Shlomo Goren, sheaf R’ of the IDF then (after the liberation 1967)
