The roshei yeshiva of Lakewood’s Beth Medrash Govoha has issued a clarion call to the Adirei Hatorah, the esteemed yungeleit, and the larger community, invoking the power of Torah, tefillah, and teshuvah as a zechus for acheinu Bnei Yisroel in Eretz Yisrael and those bravely fighting on the front lines.
In order to be mehazeik in limud haTorah at this vital time, the roshei yeshiva has urged the Adirei Hatorah to convene daily for a special morning seder.
Thousands of bnei Torah will gather at the yeshiva’s numerous botei medrash to learn the first seder, beginning their day in the holy halls of the yeshiva, even though the zeman has not yet begun.
At 9 o’clock on Monday night, an atzeres tefillah will be held in each of the yeshiva’s botei medrash. The roshei yeshiva has urged all shuls to organize atzeres tefillah services as well, with each kehillah reciting the allocated kappitlach of Tehillim of 13, 20, 79, 83, 121, 130, and 142 in their respective botei knesses.
A call-in number has been established by the yeshiva for the atzeres tefillah. Enter 125005 when 1.857.347.0100 is called.
In the second kol koreh, men and boys are encouraged to attend Beth Medrash Govoha’s botei medrash as a zechus for acheinu Bnei Yisroel and learn there.
The botei medrash’s doors will be open day and night so that members of the neighborhood might engage in limud haTorah.
The roshei yeshiva emphasizes that we should resort to our most effective weapons, Torah and tefillah, in these challenging times as the turbulent winds of uncertainty blow across Eretz Yisroel and the larger globe.
We beg Ribono Shel Olam to have pity on us and on Yidden all over the world as one united community.
