Protection for Life

The Gedolei and Tzaddikei HaDor shlit"a are gathering together on the anniversary of the world's creation, the 25th of Elul, near the house of Maran Sar HaTorah HGR"Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a to entreat Hashem to bring yeshuos for Klal Yisrael.

With much awe and emotion we approach this special tefillah gathering, "Protection for Life," that will, bez"H, take place near the house of Maran Sar HaTorah HGR"Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a, on Wednesday, the 25th of Elul, the day of the world's creation, before this upcoming Rosh Hashana תשע"ט. The Gedolei and Tzaddikei HaDor shlit"a, at this rare occasion, will have a special "seder tefillah" specifically intended for donors to Kupat Ha'ir and their descendants (which refers to the individualized requests which appear next to the donors' names) to decree for them a good and sweet upcoming year.

During these days we are putting the finishing touches on organizing the preparations for this inspiring gathering for tzedaka and tefillah. Despite the fact that the Gedolei HaDor shlit"a have gathered together many times previously for meetings in which they have praised Kupat Ha'ir, and charted paths for its day-to-day operations; nevertheless, this time our generation's greats have agreed to meet for the purpose of davening in preparation for the upcoming Yom HaDin, and to include Kupat Ha'ir's donors in their holy tefillah. This gathering will also include Rabbanim who are on the Rabbinic Board of Kupat Hair.

The following Rabbanim shlit"a plan to participate bez"H:

Maran Sar HaTorah HGR'Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a; Rabbeinu Maran Rosh Hayeshiva HGR"G Edelstein shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Viznitz shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Tzanz shlit"a; Maran HGR"Y Scheiner shlit"a; Maran HGR"B M Ezrachi shlit"a; Maran HGR"M Z Bergman shlit"a; Maran HGR"B D Povarsky shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Tchernobyl shlit"a; Maran HGR"S Baadani shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Seret Viznitz shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Alexander shlit"a; K"K the Admo"r m'Modzitz shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Rachmistrivka shlit"a; Maran HGR"Y Hillel shlit"a; Maran HGR"Y Zilberstein shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Sadigura shlit"a; Maran HGR"M Y Schlezinger shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Lelov shlit"a; Maran HGR"M H Hirsch shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Nadvorna shlit"a; Maran HGR"D Cohen shlit"a; Maran HGR"Y Boyer shlit"a; K"K Maran the Admo"r m'Zhvill shlit"a; Maran HGR"Z Drabkin shlit"a; Maran HGR"S Galai shlit"a; Maran HGR"S Kook shlit"a; Maran HGR"A D Friedman shlit"a; Maran HGR"Z Berlin  shlit"a; Maran HGRM"Z Berlin shlit"a; Maran HGR"Y Ungarischer shlit"a; Maran HGR"B Finkel shlit"a; Maran HGR"S Shteineman shlit"a and Maran HGRM"S Edelstein shlit"a.

The Gedolei HaDor themselves determined when they wanted to hold this gathering: the anniversary of the creation of the world, in order that teshuvah and tzedaka should join together with this exceptional tefillah of the Gedolei HaDor shlit"a to fulfill the words of Chaza"l: "And teshuvah and tefillah and tzedaka can avert the evil decree."
