Worldwide Tefila from the Kids


As mentioned, Rav Shteinman Shlit"a and Rav Wosner Shlit"a were working on a kids' (Tinokot Shel Beit Raban) Tefila to counteract the decree against the Yeshiva boys.  According to Kikar, they now came up with the following wording (my translation):

A holy calling from our teachers and rabbis the Gedolei Hador Shlit"a

BS"D

To the principals of the Heders and schools of Jewish kids in Israel and the Diaspora and Gabbaim of synagogues, Hashem should allow them to live!

As is known, Hashem's attribute of strict justice is stretched upon us and the entire existence of Torah is dependent upon it - that they want to nullify the Torah from Israel, Hashem should spare us.  And today, the holy Torah is turning to us - beseech and increase the requests before the Rock, Who is revered with holiness - the giver of the Torah.  And the power of schoolchildren - the holy children of Israel - who have not tasted the taste of sin is well known.

Therefore, we are here to request that all children of Israel, wherever they may be, will stand in prayer on Friday, Erev Shabbat Kodesh, Parshat Pinhas for approximately 20 minutes - to request and beseech - and every place should do according to how they feel proper as far as the appropriate time.

Our power is only in our mouths[, as it says,]  "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will make mention of the name of the LORD our God."  And we should tear open the gates of heaven as we put our souls into our request.  "They are bowed down and fallen; but we are risen, and stand upright."

And Hashem Yitbarach should listen to the sound of our cries and He should hasten for us the redemption of our souls.

[Harav] Shmuel Halevi Wosner           [Harav] Aharon Leib Shteinman


Update from YWN:

In addition, the gedolei hador shlita have called upon the tzibur to recite the following chapters of tehillim. 13, 20, 77, 121, 130, 142.

Special tefilos are being arranged around the world for this coming Thursday, erev rosh chodesh Menachem Av.

I propose that the gezara on the Yeshiva bochurim may have a positive side if only we were capable of playing our cards to the best of our ability that means we must understand that by them insisting that we orthdox jews enlist or do some voluntary work like visiting sick people in the hospital which is one of the mitzvas then either or they the chilonim also must surrender the government to the ultimate authority which is Torah law or leave the staus quo and we will all see how fast they will leave the Yeshiva boys and avreiche kollel alone . There is no gezera it's all in our mind .

I have an explanation for you. First, you have to understand that the Israeli government has double standards. I myself wrote a letter to Knesset member Yohanan Plesner of the Kadima party for his vicious attempt to penalize particularly the Haredi youths who don't join the army with his proposed draft law (which he has yet to reply back to). He is totally ignoring the fact that unlike the increased Haredi enlistment, there has been an increase of secular youths of the Tel Aviv area who are
dodging the draft. So to say that this is all in our mind is nothing short of not only not being aware of the double standards that this government and IDF are implementing on those who truly care about Eretz Yisroel, but is also deriding the leading Torah sages of our generation who are warning us of the spiritual dangers that are threatening the Jewish people by this proposed evil decree.

No , Shimon Matisyahoo that was not what I wrote in my post above חס ושלום , all I said , is that we are not helpless , we have some tricks up our sleeves we have our כוח הדיבור , true as the gedolim have said to say Thillim , but we also can use that same כוח to be more forcefully efective , Baruch hashem we are not helpless in this situation .

Joshua,

There were comments said - not by you - that needed to be deleted, and therefore any reference to those comments. It's best that you didn't read the reply.
