American Gedolim Issue Call for Atzeres Tefilla on Sunday in Lower Manhattan


asifaAt the request of Gedolim in Eretz Yisroel, American manhigei hador have asked that Jews join in a large tefilla-gathering to take place on Water Street in lower Manhattan this Sunday, 7 Adar Sheni (March 9) beginning at 2:00 p.m.

The gathering will echo this past Sunday’s huge atzeres tefilla in Yerushalyim, which brought out hundreds of thousands of Jews in response to the Israeli government’s ongoing attempt at social engineering of the charedi community, including wholesale conscription of bnei yeshiva.

The New York asifa, which will include a special area for women who wish to participate, will begin with Mincha and consist of the recital of Tehillim and special tefillos in unison.

Buses are expected to bring participants to the gathering location from communities and institutions outside the immediate New York area, but New York residents are being urged to take public transportation to the site, which is well serviced by the subway system, and to not attempt to drive into Manhattan for the gathering.
