E-l malei rachamim,

V'nomar: Amayn.Translation of "E-l Malei Rachamim"
For Martyrs of the Israel Defense Forces O G-d, full of mercy, Who dwells on high,
grant proper rest on the wings of the Divine Presence -
in the lofty levels of the holy and the pure ones,
for the souls of the martyrs of the Israel Defense Force,
who gave up their lives
because, without making a vow,
May their resting place be in the Garden of Eden -
therefore may the Master of Mercy
Hashem is their heritage,
Now let us respond: Amen.
