High Tensions in Sheikh Jarrah

Palestinian and right-wing Israelis engaged in violent protests against each other in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. The threatened evictions of Arab residents in the neighborhood over a decades-long real estate dispute are fueling tensions. This dispute was key in igniting Hamas’ attack of Israel in May 2021, which began an intense 11-day military operation. Israel’s Supreme Court is set to rule on the issue at the end of the month. Please pray for wisdom for Israeli officials in this situation. Please pray for a just outcome of this very sensitive situation. Lastly, please pray that Israel’s new government will lead in this tense time with wisdom, grace, and compassion.
