“Vesein Tal Umatar” Begins in Chutz La’aretz


siddurAt Maariv tonight, December 4th, in chutz la’aretz, we begin to say Vesein Tal Umatar during the Shemonah Esrei in the bracha of Boreich Aleinu. Residents of Eretz Yisroel already began saying Vesein Tal Umatar on the 7th of Cheshvan.

If one became aware after completing the bracha of Mevareich Hashanim that one omitted Vesein Tal Umatar, one should wait to insert it right before “Ki atah shomeiah” in Shema Koleinu.

If one has already completed the bracha of Shomeiah Tefillah, one may insert Vesein Tal Umatar before saying Retzei. If one has already started Retzei, one must return to the bracha of Boreich Aleinu, which is the proper place for Vesein Tal Umatar. If one already completed the Shemonah Esrei and stepped backward, one must repeat the entire Shemonah Esrei (Shulchan Aruch with Mishna Berurah 117:5. See also Bi’ur Halacha).

(It is advisable to repeat 101 times [and at the very least 90 times] “Ve’es kol minei sevu’asah letovah vesein tal umatar” so as to make the inclusion of Vesein Tal Umatar habitual and fluent, thus eliminating any future doubt as to whether one included Vesein Tal Umatar in Shemonah Esrei or not.

Please feel free to print this out and hang it up or distribute it in shuls and yeshivos.

  1. “The Tzaddik’s Dream”

    I just heard on a hotline from Rebbetzin Kalminovitch an outstanding Dream that a big Tzaddik had this year. A Rav & Posek from Boro Park N.Y. had a dream about the Gedolei Yisroel who are already in Shomayim who were Niftar this year.l”a

    The Gedolei Yisroel were by the Beis Dein Shel Ma’ala and were begging Hashem Yisborach to look at how much “we” the Yidden have worked on ourselves, and how much we as Klal Yisroel have grown this year. They were saying to Hashem, please Look how many Yidden got rid of the Tumah in their homes, and how much we really want to be connected to Hashem and looking forward to the Geula.

    They were begging and begging the Eibeshter(g-d) to end this long and dark Galus to bring Moshiach fast. When… Suddenly a loud voice was heard saying: “Do Bnei Yisroel really want Hashem’s Name to be known with his full Kedusha in the world? What about how Yidden are acting, especially in Shul’s, talking during Kedusha Kaddish and Davening, not giving proper Kavod to the Shul? Do they really want it?” the Geula?

    And then the Beis Dein Shel Ma’ala decided to come up with a conclusion that this year – Taf Shin Ayin Gimmel – is a big Ais Ratzon and Moshiach is really able to come to us and Hashem really wants to bring him to us.
    There is just one condition that: Hashem will test us this year in a huge way to see if we are really ready for Moshiach, if we are doing things for the Kavod of Shamayim or for the Kavod of ourselves c”v. This year could be the end of the Golus and the year of the Geula Be’ezras Hashem.

    This Tzaddik woke up in a sweat. He was so shaken up and couldn’t believe what he had heard and seen. He was shaking from real fear. Can we imagine that this is where we are up to? Moshiach is at our doorstep and every single Yid has the power to show Hashem: that “I just want to do Mitzvos for your Kovod to bring Kavod to Your Name, Hashem” and then we will hasten the Geula.

    Imagine the sound of the Shofar Shell Moshiach and YOU’R being there to witness this special long awaited day, for two thousand years, It’s surly beyond our imagination that we could be alive to really experience this day, first hand, Greet Moshiach and see it all with our own eyes. Rebbetzin Kalminovitch said that when such a strong rain falls, it is a sign That Hashem Yisborach wants us to change, so that we can be Zoche to realize that the Geula is ever so close.

    It’s all in your hands.
    Let’s wake up and see:
    “How can I do a mitzvah and do it only because I just want to bring Kavod to Hashem’s Name”? Let’s all take this lesson to heart and realize that we really must wake up and shake ourselves back into reality of how a real Yid has to conduct themselves, in order to increase the Kovod Shomayim and do a real Teshuva to bring Moshiach in Taf Shin Ayin Gimmel with the building of the third Bais Hamikdosh.

    Many of us say “I am ready for Moshiach” but we are fooling our selves, we have not done anything to speed up the Geula, we have been dragged into a lavish life style much to far from the life of a real and true Yid’s life style, living the their life the Torah way, we have to turn around and change all our ways and live a complete Torah life guided only by the Shulcon Aruch and our Gedolim, especially improving our Tznius if we don’t have Tznius we have NOTHING.

    May Hashem help us that in the Zechus of doing Teshuva by improving our Tznius and not talking in Shul especially not during Davening we should all merit to greet Moshiach. NOW!!!

  2. The yekkes are not the only ones that will be coming home late. All the nebechs, that forget Tal Umatar and have to repeat shmoneh esrei will also be coming home late.
