"Our fellow soldiers have chaplains of different Christian denominations. But with Jewish chaplains there is a problem. We are not all religious people, not everyone knows that how it should be, but there is desire, there are aspirations to know God. There is a desire to learn Torah, because war always brings people closer to God. So we have a small vacancy. If there is a courageous rabbi who wants to serve with us, he is welcome. Synagogue is ready", said the unit commander.
