  1. http://www.pinenet.com/rooster/peace.html has some info about the origin of this prayer. We say a version of it at Kehilat Yedidya, which can be found at http://yedidya.org.il/peace.htm

    There is little in common between the two tefillos. Both quote “lo yisa…” and both use “yehi ratzon”. But even there, Benaya Rein made his tefillah a “Yehi Ratzon” in format, whereas the prayer attributed to R’ Nachman uses the phrase in a later line.

    Anonymous’s comments are off topic. Why sully a discussion about this one chayal’s tefillah with political talk about what some community we have no control over did or didn’t do?
