an auspicious time For shidduchim and parnassah

Thousands of poor people are waiting for us to feed them, and we will pray on your behalf 271 times, mentioning your name and accompanying request, on Chanukah – a special time for shidduchim and parnassah- at the Kosel. Could there possibly be a better "prescription"?

an auspicious time 
For shidduchim and parnassah

Yes, there are bakashos that are fulfilled only after 271 tefilos are recited. You've prayed so many times – but have you counted the tefillos and kept track of the total? Did you cry out to the Ribono shel Olam 271 consecutive times?
We have been carrying our pain around for so long. Can the magical formula of 271 tefillos be the answer to rid ourselves of this heavy burden?
Chanukah is fast approaching, bringing with it the power of the miracles that transpired at that time. Just as in those days, today too, the gates of heaven are open at this time and miracles lie in wait. Precisely now is when Kupat Ha'ir carries out the holy segulah endorsed by Maran Hagaon Harav Steinman, shlit"a.
There are some bakashos – so said the Rosh Yeshivah, shlit"a – that are accepted only after 271 tefillos. Follow this segulah. Organize 271 tefillos on behalf of those in need of a yeshuah and with Hashem's help, you will see miracles.
Kupat Ha'ir will be conducting a special tefillah event. As with Eishes Ovadya, 271 tefillos will soar heavenward. Not just any tefillos. 271 tefillos on your behalf at the Kosel HaMaaravi during Chanukah!
On Chanukah, when the gates of Shamayim are open, messengers of Kupat Ha'ir will pray and mention each name 271 (!) times individually along with its accompanying
request.
We have selected messengers who are exceptional Yirei Shamayim, and Ovdei Hashem. They will travel to the Kosel Ha'Maaravi, the site from which the Shechinah never departs. They will come to daven for you, the contributor – to request a miracle on your behalf.
These messengers will cry out, from the Kosel, "Keili, Keili Lamah Azavtani" 271 times. Two hundred and seventy one times "Al Tashlicheinu Milfanecha" and "Al Taster Panecha Mimeni." Dovid Hamelech's prayers will be pleaded on your behalf, stubbornly insisting "Banecha Keshesilei Zeisim Saviv Leshulchanecha," "Hakshivah Li Va'aneini," "Tov Li Toras Picha." Layer upon layer of tefillos will be recited on your behalf at the Kosel, opposite Sha'ar HaShamayim.
Chanukah 5778 can turn into the loftiest period of your life, initiating a change so sweet you never even dared dream about it.
An opportunity for a tefillah this powerful, at the holiest place in the world, is a rare occasion indeed. Messengers will pray for Torah, Yiras Shamayim, serenity in the home, good health, nachas from children, parnassah – everything good we yearn for. Your life after the 271 tefillos will not be the   same.  We believe and know that Dovid Hamelech's mizmorim do not go unanswered.
When Hakadosh Baruch Hu created the world, He gave us the tool of tefillah to use when needed to help rescind unfavorable decrees. He also gave us specific times that are auspicious for miracles. Thousands of people throughout the generations have merited salvation on Chanukah. Hashem revealed to us the power of tefillah and the power of tzedakah. He gave us Dovid Hamelech's book of psalms and He revealed to us the secret that 271 tefillos rend the heavens.
Maybe your miracle is the one waiting to happen? One day, when the chuppah will be erected, when the child will begin studying with cheshek once more, when the child will be healthy against all odds, when parnassah will improve, when the baby will be born, when the difficulty and frustration will disappear, when someone's emotional state will stabilize- we will know the power of tefillah. And like Eishes Ovadyah, we, too, will witness a miracle with our own eyes. Perhaps the time has come to access the power of 271 times the entire Sefer Tehillim. On Chanukah, all these segulas will join to become one large yeshuah puzzle. 271 times in one week, and not just any week but a week of miracles, the week of Chanukah, an auspicious time for shidduchim and parnassah. Maybe the bakashah in your heart will finally be answered?
Your tzedakah will feed the hungry. Your tzedakah will gladden homes and revive families. Thousands of poor people will sigh in relief thanks to you, and your tefillah will B'ezras Hashem be accepted. Kupat Ha'ir needs you and the gates of Shamayim are open for you. It all depends on one small but powerful contribution

271 is the number of tefillos that Eishes Ovadya prayed on Chanukah; it is the number that brought about a yeshuah for all those who were helped on Chanukah; and it could be the number that will help  your loved ones who await a yeshuah.
