Achdus and Shalom

The passionate responses to the “Kosel issue” in the Features section (25 Tammuz) are certainly on target!

It is so sad to see these “misguided souls” causing such a ruckus to seek attention in order to validate themselves. As (chareidi) Orthodox Jews, we turn to our Rabbanim, chachamim and Gedolei Yisrael for psak and guidance. It is their yiras Shamayim and knowledge of our Torah and mitzvos that enables them to do so.

During these auspicious days of Av and Elul, let us take this “heated passion” and direct it to our tefillos to Hakadosh Baruch Hu and beg Him to have rachmanus on his children and help us to be worthy recipients of achdus and shalom.

Kein yehi ratzon.
