Schools and Businesses the World Over to Participate in Unique Programming
The Chofetz Chaim’s impact on Klal Yisrael is felt every day. Whether through his Sefer Chofetz Chaim or his sefer Mishnah Berurah, the impact of the Chofetz Chaim on our everyday life is colossal!
Indeed, the yahrtzeit of the Chofetz Chaim is a special eis ratzon, a remarkably opportune time to invoke rachamei shomayim. This year, on Friday, 24 Elul/September 15, Klal Yisrael will utilize this eis ratzon by engaging in an International Yom Limud and Tefillah. Jews from all over the world will recite specific chapters of Tehillim and learn segments from the two seminal seforim written by the Chofetz Chaim, the Mishnah Berurah and the Sefer Chofetz Chaim.
Uniting in Tefillah
The Yom Limud and Tefillah, being held under the auspices of Dirshu and its kiruv arm, Acheinu, is designed to reach out with a message of achdus to all Jews from across the spectrum and at all levels of observance, promoting Torah learning and tefillah. There is so much strife in the world, so much danger, as countries threaten one another and natural disasters plague us. There is so much polarization and heated rhetoric. Combining sur meirah with aseh tov, the Yom Limud and Tefillah has been designated as a day when all Jews will learn the seforim of the Chofetz Chaim and make a special effort to avoid discord, lashon hara, as well as any form of gossip.
Special Tailor-made Programming for Hundreds of Chadarim and Schools
Hundreds of chadarim, schools and shuls as well as businesses from around the world have signed up to participate in the yom tefillah.
This year, Dirshu prepared special age-appropriate material for schools that will bring the message and legacy of the Chofetz Chaim to life. According to Rabbi Ahron Gobioff, Dirshu’s North American Director, “Dirshu prepared three different booklets, designed for grades 1-3, grades 4-6, and grades 7-8, to be distributed to participating boys’ school and girls’ schools across the United States and Canada. They contain age-appropriate halachos from both the sefer Chofetz Chaim and Mishnah Berurah, as well as beautiful inspirational and educational stories about the Chofetz Chaim with age-appropriate biographical material about the Chofetz Chaim and his life’s mission.”
Hundreds of boys’ and girls’ schools throughout Eretz Yisrael will be participating, as well as schools from North American communities, such as Monsey, Lakewood, Brooklyn, Toronto, Houston, Baltimore, Cleveland, Waterbury, Phoenix, Staten Island and Los Angeles.
As the Chofetz Chaim’s yahrtzeit approaches, now is the time to join with Klal Yisrael in the Yom Limud and Tefillah this coming Friday, 24 Elul/September 15. Unite with Yidden of all backgrounds worldwide to beseech Hakadosh Baruch Hu to spare us from hardships and bentch Klal Yisrael with a שנת גאולה וישועה.
To participate please say Tehillim perek 20 and 130, learn the sefer Mishnah Berurah, Chapter 254 from the middle of se’if gimmel until the middle of se’if hei, and learn the Chofetz Chaim’s sefer Torah Ohr from Perek 1 until ‘V’isah b’Megillah.
