Settlement rabbis continue to say Hallel

"Rabbis of settlements considered the most right-wing in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip have directed their communities to continue to say the Hallel prayer, an expression of joy for the establishment of the state, on Independence Day.

Despite disenchantment with the present government's anti-settlement policies, these religious Zionist rabbis see in the creation of the State of Israel a miracle that set in motion the burgeoning redemption of the Jewish people.

"We are opposed to the government, but we still believe that the establishment of the state was a tremendous act of loving-kindness by God," said Rabbi Yigal Kaminetsky, rabbi of the Gush Katif communities."
