In view of the drought conditions which rural NSW as well as much of rural Australia currently finds itself,  the Dayanim of The Sydney Beth Din have recommended that a special prayer for rain be added in all NSW Shules commencing this coming Shabbos following the prayers for Australia, Israel and Zahal.

The Dayanim have authorised and approved the following prayer which was composed by Rabbi Chaim Ingram, adhering closely to prevailing nusachim:-


Heavenly Father, Creator of Heaven and earth, You form the clouds and gather them one by one. 

Please in Your mercy,  send  rain of blessing and goodwill to speedily moisten and revive the parched earth of rural Australia.

May the fields of NSW and other afflicted areas of our fair island again be adorned with healthy crops and green vegetation. 

May those who work the soil not become destitute for lack of produce. 

Satisfy us all with Your goodness!

May all the inhabitants of this blessed land know that You are G-D who sends relief to the ailing. 

May the earth be filled with the knowledge and the glory of G-D as the waters cover the sea bed!  Amen

The Sydney Beth Din has requested the prayer be recited until the drought has been broken.
