Gedolim Issue Calls for Special Tefillos

Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudas Yisrael in America and Hagaon Harav Shmuel Wosner, shlita, have issued calls for Jewish communities the world over to gather on Erev Rosh Chodesh Sivan for special tefillos in light of the threat to Torah in Eretz Yisrael.

“Before us is a clear and present danger, chalilah, the removal of students of Torah from their batei medrash through varied pressures and threats. Both yeshivos as institutions and their talmidim as individuals are currently imperiled, both physically and spiritually, may it never come to pass,” the Moetzes Kol Korei said.

The Gedolim designated this Thursday, Erev Rosh Chodesh Sivan, as a Yom Tefillah for Jews to gather in the yeshivos and shuls to say Tehillim and the service of Yom Kippur Kattan.
