The powerful day is almost here. Preparations have begun again for a massive davening and tzedaka event, the proceeds from which will be distributed to thousands of needy families throughout Israel.
Just before the start of Lag BaOmer, twelve emissaries sent specifically by Rav Chaim Kanievsky will arrive at the kever of the Rashbi, at the top of Har Meron. They will remain at the forefront of the prayers until the end of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai’s yartzeit, completing 24 hours of uninterrupted prayer. During that time thousands of Jews will come and go, soaking in the undeniable energy of Meron on Lag BaOmer.
The emissaries will pray for those donors who have contributed to a tzedaka campaign approved by Rav Kanievsky. They will also be making phone calls to select donors, allowing them to listen in to the chaotic and exciting atmosphere, and to call out additional names to pray for. Some donors will also have a shaliach specifically assigned to them, to continue to pray for them and their loved ones in Meron every day for the next year. It is a huge operation, and an incredible cause even without such a reward.
Few have the opportunity to visit Meron on Lag BaOmer in their lifetime. Even fewer have the chance to enter the tsiyun itself, as thousands crowd around it on the mountain. Those who are praying for a yeshua and want to attach themselves to this massive event can add their names here for a limited time.
