The second Israeli cosmonaut Eitan Stibbe announced that he would take with him into space a prayer for the welfare of Israel. It is noteworthy that the prayer was written by Isaac Halevi Herzog, the grandfather of the current President of the State of Israel, Yitzhak Herzog.
The President met with Stibbe at the official residence to discuss the astronaut's mission on the International Space Station. Eitan Stibbe promised the President to return the memorable thing upon his return to Earth.
The very prayer for Israel's well-being is engraved on a glass cube. Stibbe will also take a coin from the period of the Bar Kokhba uprising into space.
