30,000 Children to Participate in Misaskim Tehilim Asifa for Sick Jews During Aseres Yemei Tesuhva


misaskim-tehillim-asifaPlans have gone into high gear for what is expected to be the largest tehilim asifa of Jewish children in recent memory on Tuesday, September 10th, the 6th day of the Aseres Yemei Teshuva. The annual event, which is organized and coordinated by the Misaskim organization, will take place at 1:00 p.m. at the magnificent Bobover Bais Medrash in Boro Park. Organizers say that 6,000 yeshiva children from nearly 40 yeshivos will fill the huge bais medrash with more than 25,000 others joining via live hookups in 130 locations in Jewish communities throughout the world.

The event, which was first launched in 1993 and has in recent years been organized by Misaskim, the highly respected rescue and relief organization, revolves around the children reciting 6 kapitlech tehilim on behalf of sick Jews, particularly other children. The tehilim is followed by Mincha, Avinu Malkeinu, Shlosh Esrei Middos, Kabbolas Ohl Malchus Shomayim, and Oleinu.

The emotion-filled gathering has in recent years become one of the most anticipated events during the Yomim Noraim on behalf of the many Jews suffering from illness and disease. Well before the event, hundreds of names of the sick are called into the Misaskim headquarters as people seek the z’chus of the tefilos of tinokos shel beis rabbon for a refuah sheleimoh.  This year, the names of the sick will rotate on a huge screen and a mishebeirach made on their behalf.

“The tefillos of the children will no doubt reach the heavens and hopefully result in the full recovery of so many sick in our community, particularly children,” said Mr. Yaakov Cohen of Misaskim. “The sight of thousands of children imploring the heavens for mercy is heart-rending and a tribute to parents and teachers who have inculcated the young with such a strong sensitivity for the welfare of their brethren.”

For Misaskim, the mammoth event involves months of preparation and dozens of volunteers as the logistics of the event and its live hook-up to so many locations worldwide requires meticulous planning and preparation. Misaskim volunteers are known for their dedication and skilled attentiveness to detail, whether it is for a tehilim asifa or operating on the scene of a disaster. Founded in 2006 by several community activists, Misaskim is well known for its services to thousands of mourners who receive the required special furniture, sifrei Torah, and even air conditioners during the shiva period. It is also the major force in the community for preparedness for any possible disaster with a full team of volunteer rescuers as well as a sophisticated communications center and emergency equipment.
