Each and every day for an entire year a messenger of Kupat Ha'ir will daven at Kever Rochel for donors to Kupat Ha'ir, starting on the 11th of Cheshvan this year until the next year on the 11th of Cheshvan.

How many times in the middle of the year we want to cry out in the place where tefillos are heard…A year is a long time. Throughout the course of the year we need all types of yeshuos, small and big. How many challenges; how many tears; how many moments of danger; how many moments of simcha; how many hopes- Kupat Ha'ir is here for you. Our messengers will come to this holy site, where tefillos are accepted, and daven on behalf of those who are unable to come themselves. They will daven each and every day, for each name separately and each request separately. And Rochel Imeinu goes up to the Kisei Hakavod and cries for you; she cries for your child; she cries that Hashem should fulfill your request. And Hashem answers, "There is reward for your actions…"

Summer, winter, Yamim Tovim, Chanukah, Pesach, Aseres Ymai Teshuvah, Rosh Hashana- all the days most auspicious for acceptance of one's prayers- the messengers are there, in the place that the Shechina rests. Their only reason to be there- is to pray for you, 385 days of the year, each and every day, saying your name and request individually, over and over again.

Each idea that arises in the "Kupa" awaits as a question mark until it receives the approval of the Gedolei Hador, and only then does it become a reality. The tefilla at Kever Rochel did not only receive the bracha of the Gedolei Hador, but also merited this response from Maran haGaon Harav Yaakov Edelstein zt"l: "This is the most important of the tefillos that Kupat Ha'ir arranges." The entire order of tefillos and other details of conduct are in precise accordance with the instructions of Maran HaGaon Harav Yaakov Edelstein zt"l. The sifrei Tehillim are said in the way he proscribed: the order of the chapters; the chapters said consecutively, without interruption; the ta'anis dibur. Afterwards the names are enunciated slowly, each with its own individual request, and once again tefillos are said. For an entire year…
