Issues Call for Tefillos in Light of Security Situation


matzav logoUpon consultation with its rabbinic leadership, issued the following statement regarding the current situation in Eretz Yisroel:

In light of the intensifying situation in Yerushalayim and across Eretz Yisroel, is calling upon Jewry across the world to stop for a moment amidst their Yom Tov revelry and recite a kappitel of Tehillim for the security of Am Yisroel.

It is vital to reiterate the foundation principle that our security comes ultimately from Hashem, G-d Himself. Rabbos machshavos belev ish, while man may have many thoughts and designs, atzas Hashem hee sakum, it is Hashem’s design that prevails.

The most important advocacy we can do at this time is to turn to Hashem, to recognize that teshuvah tefillah utzedakah ma’avirin es ro’a hagezeirah, repentance, prayer and acts of charity are the keys to our salvation.

With the recent tragedies, this is a period of somber reflection for the Jewish people. May the challenging developments in the world around us remind us of how fragile our existence truly is, and how totally dependent we are on the protective embrace of the One-and-Only Shomer Yisroel, the Heavenly Guardian of the Jewish People.

  1. Wow! Now even matzav became a מאן דאמר ! Not only do we not know who you are, you are making such declarations in the name of unknown “rabbinic leadership”. sounds absolutely silly….

  2. Any kappital or a specific one? Maybe we should each say a different one and complete Tehillim that way. B”n I will say 1. Post what you will say.

  3. Did your Rabbonim also consider this: כל מקום שאתה מוצא זנות ו…., אנדרלמוסיה באה לעולם והורגת טובים ורעים ?
    Please have the decency to post this comment. Why has everyone been quiet about the zenus?

  4. Surely you’re not recommending the use of pesukim as a segula, something explicitly outlawed by the Rambam?

    Tefilla, not Tehillim.
