Massive Atzeres Tefillah Planned for Sunday at the Kosel Due to Matzav in Eretz Yisroel

7

israel-rocket-attack1Chacham Ovadia Yosef and the Sefardic chief rabbi of Israel, Rav Shlomo Moshe Amar, are urging the tzibbur to take part in an atzeres tefillah to be held this Sunday at the Kosel in light of the deteriorating security situation in Eretz Yisroel, with hundreds of rockets being fire at Jewish cities across southern, and now central, Israel.

Rav Amar and Rav Yosef met earlier today to discuss the frightening matzav and to plan the upcoming asifa of tefillah, which will begin at 4 p.m. and will include the recital of Selichos.

At the end of the meeting, Rav Amar said: “I call on Am israel-rocket-attack-1Yisroel, from all spectrums, to cry and daven for mercy given the difficult events that are befalling us during these times.

Am Yisroel’s success depends on unity and faith. I send a bracha to all those who have been wounded, and my condolences to the families of the victims. Our duty at this time is to be mechazeik the residents of the South and our soldiers with our tefillos.”

  1. Wow! This picture is really graphic! But, I think we need to see these pictures; maybe it’ll have more of an effect on us, than just saying nebach & moving on. Oy gevald! Yiddish blood is being spilled! Hashem we need the geulah! We can’t take this any more, Ad Mosai!?!

  2. JACK LEW PLEASE LISTEN UP, I HAVE A SUSPICION THAT IRAN IS BEHIND THE SUDDEN SPUR OF ATTACKS FROM HAMAS WHICH TRIGGERED A ESCALATION OF AIR TARGETS FROM ISRAEL THAT MIGHT GOD FORBID CAUSE A FULL BLOWN WAR. REASON OF MOTIVE IN WHY IRAN WILL DO IT NOW I CAN ONLY IGNORANTLY SPECULATE THAT MAYBE THEY ARE CLOSER TO NUKES THEN WE THINK AND THEY WANT THIS DIVERSION FOR A FEW MONTHS TO FINISH OFF THERE PROJECT……ETC. YOUR OWN BUT I JUST WANTED TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS WITH YOU. MAZEL TOV ON YOUR NEW GRANDDAUGHTER ELIORA DEVORAH

  3. it always shocks me & saddens me that it takes the sitaution to become this bad R”L before we can accept Hashems wake-up call for teshuva.

    why can’t we do teshuva & achdus before these tragic events happen.

    perhaps you can guide me with an answer

    may we all do the proper teshuva Hashem is waiting for so mashiach can come

  4. what better way to do teshuvah than to give donation to needy in Israel?
    keep a fast especially for those living outside of Israel they should feel the pain of our Brothers and Sisters in Israel. What better way to feel pain than to fast.
