In Light Of Klal Yisroels Current Situation: Kol Koreh From The Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of America

We are in the wake of a terrible destruction, Jewish blood spilled like water in the Holy Land, of precious sons of Zion who fell in sanctification of Hashem’s name in their Beis Medrash – nations have entered the estate of Hashem and turned Yerushalayim into heaps of rubble. And all that is besides the frightening danger to the nation of Hashem from enemies from without who threaten to obliterate it – may it never come to pass, and may Hashem have mercy.

And then there are other heartrending tragedies that have suddenly afflicted our community. We are all enveloped in mourning over the calamities borne by Jews in every land.

We therefore call and encourage the entire community to gird and strengthen itself in what the Jewish people relies upon, the pillars of the world: Torah, avodah and gemillus chasodim – and to gather in shuls and botei medrash to pour out prayers and pleas before our Father in Heaven, through recitation of Tehillim and the Yom Kippur Koton service on Thursday, 27 Adar II, may it arrive bringing blessings.

May our entreaties be pleasing to the Master of all, and may He listen to our cries, accept our prayers in mercy and quickly bring us the Redeemer without delay.

  1. Toda raba Mordechai, this is what I mean, in the interim we have what it takes to make change. No US foriegn policy is going to do this. We have all the tools, Hashem, Prayer, Torah Land and the People. We are starting to act like every day is Tisha B’AV for us,unnecessarily adding to the kinot because of our own inability to deal with matters that concern us. All we need to do is kumah like the Chasmonim. Bob, one day the PM’s seat with be sold for scrap, right now it sold for world opinions and the false promises of the goyim. Shabbat Shalom

  2. Well, I hesitated because I didn’t want to appear disrespectful of important rabbanim. Pesach preempted me. Kol Hakavod.

    We need more Jews moving to Israel, building new Jewish communities, new batei midrash, and more nice Jewish boys in the army.

  3. Bob,

    We learn to argue from the Greeks believe it or not; and I’m not angry just tired of the same or tirade that speaks words but not buttressed with actions. Like I said, David Hamelech would of not only prayed but did serious battle …this is from a Jew that thinks outside the ‘box’. You’ll see me in the Knesset in the PM’s seat one day G-d willing.

  4. Pesach, are you currently firing your weapon against our enemies? Or are you currently studying Talmud? Or both?

    Based on this and your other comment here, you have an anger management problem and do not know how to argue respectfully in a way that will persuade people.

  5. And let’s not forget the melchemet mitzvah … it works wonders against our enemies, just ask David HaMelech. If one can turn the pages of a talmud, he can squeeze the trigger on a firearm. Kol Tuv
