In a show of solidarity with acheinu bnei Yisroel in Eretz Yisroel, askanim in the tri-state area are working on arranging an asifas tefillah to be held in New York City.
While the “Million Man Atzeres” in Yerushalayim will take place this coming Sunday, March 2, the upcoming New York prayer rally is tentatively scheduled for the following Sunday, March 9.
Askanim involved in the talks include members of Agudas Yisroel of America.
In light of the terrible gezeiros being enacted by the Israeli government aimed at removing bnei yeshiva from botei medrash and having them enlisted in the army, it is believed at this time that American bnei yeshiva will be asked to participate in the upcoming event. Chassidic groups from across the spectrum are expected to join.
Further information will be provided as it becomes available.
