The many wonderful boys and girls that are still waiting for their appropriate Shidduch is an issue that is at the forefront of our frum society. We do our best to suggest shiduchim, we daven for them and we support them in any way that we can until they merit finding their bashert.
Rav Yaakov Edelstein Zatzal, the late Rav of Ramat Hasharon, was known to carry the burden of Jewish singles on his shoulders at all times, and he even compiled a special order of Tefilos to utilize in beseeching Hashem to bring shiduchim to fruition.
Tefilah is a powerful thing. Tefilah by Talmidei Chachamim who dedicate their days and nights to Torah study is an even more powerful thing. Tefilah by Talmidei Chachamim on Purim night, an auspicious time for storming the heavens, is just about the most powerful combination on earth!
Taking all of the above into a consideration, a powerful initiative has been undertaken by Harav Yitzchok Kalodetski Shlita, son-in-law of Maran Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita, to harness the power of Tefilah, the power of Talmidei Chachamim and the power of Purim and utilize it on behalf of our brothers and sisters who are still waiting for their zivugim.
Rav Koledetski Shlita has commissioned the close to 200 Talmidei Chachamim that are part of his Kollel network, Reshet Kollelim Pardes Katz, to stay up throughout the night on Purim and specifically daven for the singles of Am Yisroel, utilizing the special order of Tefilos arranged by Rav Yaakov Edelstein Zatzal.
These Talmidei Chachamim, and the Kollel network, are very near and dear to the heart of Maran Rav Chaim Shlita, who has expressed his support and admiration for them in writing and verbally on many occasions. To show his support for this powerful Purim initiative, Rav Chaim Shlita has agreed to read and bless the names of all the singles who contribute to this Purim initiative, at his Purim Seuda.
This powerful Segulah and Bracha is available to all singles who contribute $180 or more to support the esteemed Torah scholars of Reshet Kolelim Pardes Katz, and is an opportunity that should not be taken lightly.
