Thanks for posting.
The re’s a mistranslation. R. Roth prays that those in charge of law and order be given the understanding to effectively investigate (lidrosh ve-lachkor) the fire, not to put it out.
I also noticed that, although I don’t it’s so much a mistranslation as making it more relevant for an American audience.
Is there any evidence that any congregations actually used the prayer?
