From Rosh Chodesh Elul until Yom Kippur [inclusive] Kupat Ha'ir will be sending messengers to ten holy sites each day to daven חס behalf of our donors. For forty consecutive days your name and personal request will be mentioned in each of the ten holy sites. The holy sites include the Kosel, Meoras Hamachpeila, Kever Rochel, the Kever of Rabi Shimon bar Yochai in Meron, Amukah, the Kever of the Sheloh Hakodosh, the Kever of the Ohr Hachaim Hakodosh, the home of the lshah Hashunamis and the Kever of Reb Leib Ba'al Hayisurim.
During these most important days of the year ten messengers of Kupat Ha'ir will go חס a daily basis and pour out their hearts in prayer חס your behalf, day after day, including Rosh Hashono and Yom Kippur [except for Amuka which is too difficult to reach חס foot].
Forty is not just 'any' number. וn the holy Zohar it is written "Whoever prays for something for forty consecutive day will surely be answered". Ten messengers, a minyan of men, will be praying חס your behalf for forty day in these holy places, can such prayers go unanswered? וn the merit of the prayers in Meron, in the merit of the prayers in Amuka, in the merit of the prayers in .... your request will surely be answered.
The forty days start חס Rosh Chodesh Elul, the day that Moshe Rabeinu ascended the mountain to request forgiveness חס behalf of Klal Yisroel after the 'chet haegel' and after forty days of prayer he was told 'salachti kidvorecho'. וn the merit of all these prayers חס your behalf during these auspicious days from Rosh Chodesh Elul until after Yom Kippur, may you too have the merit of the blessing of 'solachti kidvorecho'
At this time, when we are all seeking to attach ourselves to those greater than us, we will 'lean upon' their prayers and we will look forward to be blessed with טובה מה•וחת בה•כת.
