Rabbi Mendy Deitsch, shliach in Chandler, Arizona, was invited to deliver the opening prayer in the US Congress on a day around Gimmel Tammuz, to honor the Rebbe and share his message for all.

In a conversation with Anash.org, Rabbi Deitsch shared:

“The office of Congressman reached out to me. They knew about Gimmel Tammuz and they invited me to come and recite the opening prayer for Congress as close as possible to the day. It was a great honor to come again to represent shluchim and chassidim around the world.

“We will able to spend time with the speaker of the house Mike Johnson and Congressman Greg Stanton and talk to them about Lubavitch, the Rebbe and Eretz Yisroel.

“Being that it was close to Gimmel Tammuz, I tried to fit in a vital point that the Rebbe speaks about in the maamar V’atah Tezaveh.”

The following is the text of the prayer shared in Congress:

“May it be your will, O Lord, our God and God of our fathers, give blessings to these special individuals, the members of Congress who have been chosen by many to represent and bring freedom, comfort, peace and harmony while ensuring we live in a just, educated, respectful world.

“We pray for a safe return of the hostages and for our troops around the globe to continue to carry out their mission and task with integrity, strength and dignity.

“The revered Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, whose yahrzeit we recently observed, posited, that latent within each individual lies a reservoir of untapped potential.

“By harnessing these innate faculties to actualize our distinctive purpose, in a beneficial way by bringing justice to all we fulfill the seven universal laws of Noah entrusted to humanity.

“As our nation continues to fight for its identity we pray that this legislative body continue to show our youth the inner strength and positive potential that they harbor within and encourage them to use it in unity with respect for all without infringing on the freedoms of its fellow citizens.

“We implore God to grant them the strength and moral courage to enhance our world daily. Bestow upon them wisdom, justice, grace, and empathy, enabling them to bring honor to Your name and empathy, enabling them to bring honor to Your name and blessings to humankind. with joy and happiness to all, Amen.”
