As rumors of war and danger circulated throughout Israel Wednesday, Jews in 40 cities and towns countrywide planned to hold simultaneous prayer and repentance services in the afternoon on April 3.

According to Israel National News, "the military threats that have energized concerned Jews throughout the country to organize the prayer services include long-range non-conventional Iranian and Syrian missiles, Hizb’allah's thousands of missiles not far from Israel's northern border, and the continuing weapons flow from Iran and Syria into Lebanon.

"Historically and traditionally," INN continued, pointing to the lives of Jacob, Moses, Mordechai and Esther, "whenever the Jewish people have been threatened, they have responded with an outpouring of prayer and repentance."

At six-o-clock Thursday evening Israel time, prayer services will take place in Jerusalem, Ofakim, Nof Ayalon, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Tel Tzion, Be'er Sheva, Beit Shemesh, Bnei Brak, Bat Yam, Afula, Petach Tikvah, Givatayim, Nesher, Tel Aviv and some 20 other cities and locations on both sides of the Green Line.
