Divine Protection during Bein HaZmanim

Maran Rashkebeha"g Sar HaTorah Rabeinu HaGaon Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a has written a passionate letter- with a specific and singular bracha in his own holy handwriting- for the days of bein hazmanim: "BS"D R"Ch Av 5778 Those who contribute 72 to Kupat Ha'ir should merit- they and their entire household- to pass the days of bein hazmanim safely, spiritually and physically. Chaim Kanievsky"

 

A TZADDIK DECREES AND HAKADOSH BARUCH HU FULFILLS

This time- bein hazmanim will look totally different!

This letter brings us tremendous news! If our hearts skip a beat- it's understandable…

Maran Rashkebeha"g Sar HaTorah HGR"Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a turns to each one of us. Maran shlit"a turns to every household head, to every mother who worries about her children, to every family, to every Jew:

His clear words leave no room for doubt. They speak for themselves, filled with care and concern:

Those who contribute 72 to Kupat Ha'ir should merit- they and their entire household- to pass the days of bein hazmanim safely, spiritually and physically.

Each word opens an entire world. Each word is filled with meaning:

"He- and his family…"

It seems that Maran is addressing us, the parents. He looks inside our souls, which are worried about these upcoming days; anxious, trying to appear calm, but inside- turmoil. It seems that Maran intends his words specifically for this purpose…Take a deep breath, parents! Has anyone ever blessed you with such an enormous bracha? "They and their whole family…"

Three weeks in which everybody's at home. The boys, the girls, the married couples, the little children. Everyone's at home; everyone's traveling; everyone's coming and going- and they'll all pass this period safely. The parents and all the household members- everyone.

And in addition to this Divine protection, on the 23rd of Av, the yahrtzeit of Maran the Steipler ztvk"l (the illustrious father of yebodel bain chaim l'chaim Maran HaRav Chaim shlit"a) Maran HaRav Chaim shlit"a will go to his father's holy tziyun, and he will take with him a list of the donors of "72" to Kupat Ha'ir…

At this yahrtzeit tefilla, when the son stands before the kever of his father, moments during which the tefillos can soar to the Kisai Hakavod-there Maran Rashkebeha"g Sar HaTorah HGR"Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a will daven for those who donated "72" to Kupat Ha'ir, that this protection should continue to shield them also in these upcoming days of judgment; this coming Elul, with the Yamim Noraim; the beginning of the new school year; for besoros tovos, yeshuos, and nechamos for the upcoming year…

We don't intend to miss such a tefilla…
