Non-stop tefilloh at the Kosel

AT THE KOSEL HAMA'ARAVI FROM ROSH CHODESH ELUL UNTIL MOTZAI YOM KIPPUR AROUND THE CLOCK- DAVENING WITHOUT LETUP

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.
