The bracha Maran R' Chaim Kanievsky shlit

"Contributors to Kupat Ha'ir's Shavuos campaign should merit, bezras Hashem Yisborach, that the tefillah of the Shla"h should be fulfilled in themselves and in their offspring; and they should be successful in the chinuch of their children."


 Rashkebeha"g Maran Sar HaTorah HaGaon R'Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a has taken an extraordinarily unusual step: Before Shavuos, he himself penned the above bracha for contributors to Kupat Ha'ir's Shavuos campaign.

Rashkebeha"g Maran R' Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a himself- whatever he decrees, is fulfilled in Shamayim: "Tzaddik gozer v'Hashem mekayem." Through nissim, through yeshuos, through ways that are me'al derech  hateva…
-:.."The tefillah of the Shla"h should be fulfilled in them and in their offspring; and they should be successful in the chinuch of their children."

His words are very clear. And what about the tefillas haShla"h itself? It includes everything:
"Therefore, I've come to request and plead before You, that all my descendants until the end of time be kasher, and there should never be found in any of my descendants any flaw or blemish…they should serve You with love and with inner awe, not with superficial fear of You. And give each of them sufficient sustenance in an honorable way; and give them health and honor and strength; and give them stature, beauty, grace, and kindness; and there should be love and goodwill and peace amongst them. Prepare for them worthy spouses from families of talmidei chachamim, from families of tzaddikim …"

Everything is included in it! Everything we want for our children and children's children…and for all our generations. They should always be kasher; they should serve Hashem faithfully; they should have whatever they need; they should be healthy, attractive, and strong; they should love each other…
How could we possibly miss out on this priceless opportunity and this priceless bracha? Maran Sar HaTorah R' Chaim Kanievsky has decreed:
Contribute to Kupat Ha'ir's Shavuos campaign..and merit that tefillas haShlah will be fulfilled in your descendants…
