From Rosh Chodesh Elul until motzai Yom Kippur the shlichim of Kupat Ha'ir will daven at the Kosel HaMa'aravi in uninterrupted shifts for 1000 hours of consecutive tefillot. One donation- 1000 tefillot- and you ease the burden of 20,000 impoverished Jews whom Kupat Ha'ir supports!
Monday. Parshas Shoftim. The night of the 30th of Av, תשע"ז. At shkia-7:19 p.m. exactly- your shlichim will be standing at the Kosel- and a tremendous tefilla endeavor will begin. Night and day the shlichim will arrive; the shifts will change every two hours; Tehillim will be recited nonstop until the final tekia is sounded at the close of Yom Kippur.
Kupat Ha'ir has arranged an awesome tefilla event: every two hours of the day and night, our shlichim will change shifts, finishing the whole sefer Tehillim in your merit; the moment it's finished, other shlichim begin a new sefer in your merit. All the shlichim are yirei shamayim, avreichim; committed to storming the gates of heaven on your behalf. Not for one day. Not for one week. This program is orchestrated and run with army-like precision for forty complete days around the clock.
They will plead for you, "Ki avi v'imi ya'azvuni v'Hashem ya'asfaini…" Chaza"l say "Praiseworthy is the person who davens constantly." Halevai a person should be able to stand and daven all day…But here Kupat Ha'ir is making the seemingly impossible a reality. All that is requested is simply a donation to tzedaka.
1000 hours of nonstop tefilla- at the Kosel HaMaaravi no less!- for you! Not even one 15-minute break within these 1000 hours…the shlichim come, replace the previous ones, and once a day your name will be mentioned along with its accompanying request. Then another 24 hours of tefilla commence.
You understand what Elul is about; what Rosh Hashana means; what life is worth; what a happy family is; what tefilla is about and what tzedaka is about. It's in your hands.
