‘Holy Work’

In Hebrew, we have a term called “Avodat Kodesh,” which literally means ‘Holy Work,’ but actually refers to an unpleasant or tedious job done for a higher cause, one that very few are ready to take upon themselves. Occasionally, we at the TMSP are told that we are doing such a job. However, today we hosted some unusual guests at the sifting site who are, without a doubt, performing such a task, and since October 7th, they have been working day and night.

This group of about 40 soldiers comprises the surveying unit of the IDF rabbinate, who are currently engaged in scanning the massacre areas near the Gaza Strip for the remains of missing victims.

The group took a day off to visit our sifting facility and learn about our methodology and techniques for identifying tiny bones. It was an honor to host these special individuals.
