Live Video: Day of Tefillah at Kever Rochel on Rochel Imeinu’s Yahrtzeit, 11 Cheshvan


kever-rochel[Live video link below.] The 11th of Cheshvan, which this year falls out tomorrow, October 29, marks a special day for Am Yisroel. 11 Cheshvan is the yahrtzeit of Rochel Imeinu and is a special day of tefillah

Kever Rochel was built as a place for Jews to daven in golus. For those who are davening for children, a shidduch, parnassah, health or any other matter, the zechus of Rochel Imeinu is a zechus for them. Going to the kever on the yahrtzeit is a tremendous merit, but for those who cannot travel, having someone at the kever to daven is just as powerful.

Each year, Mosdos Kever Rochel, which sponsors a year-round kollel at the kever and which will be providing free food and drinks for 100,000 visitors on the day of the yahrtzeit, hosts a special tefillah program, which offers people around the world the ability to watch or listen to a minyan reciting the 10 last kapitlach of Tehillim and to send a kvittel to the kever on the yahrtzeit

Thursday, Rav Asher Weiss will be leading the recital of kappitlach Tehillim at the kever of Mammeh Rochel.

To enable people from around the world to be able to participate as if they were there, a live satellite from Kever Rochel has streaming visual 24 hours a day on the day of the yahrtzeit, and a live hook-up via telephone is available for callers to dial in. Around the US, dozens of schools will be hosting a special program for students on the day of the yahrtzeit. Mosdos Kever Rochel works closely with rabbonim to ensure that everything is done in a way that benefits Klal Yisroel.
