A Plea From the Bereft Widows and Families

From the depths of our broken hearts melted with tears over the spilled blood of the Kedoshim, the holy heads of our families — may Hashem avenge their blood:

 We turn to our brethren, the entire Jewish nation in every place they are found, to unite and elicit the mercy of Heaven upon us by accepting upon ourselves to increase love and brotherhood, from friend to friend, from congregation to congregation, and from community to community.

We request that every individual endeavor to accept upon themselves on Friday, the eve of Parashas Toldos, that the day of Shabbos (the eve of Rosh Chodesh Kislev) be sanctified as a day of unconditional love of our fellow Jew; a day on which we refrain from divisive speech, lashon hara and slander.

This will serve as a great elevation for the souls of the fathers of our families who were murdered in the name of G-d.

May Hashem peer down from Heaven, note our trials and tribulations, wipe away our tears and proclaim, “Enough!” to our suffering. May we merit to witness the arrival of Moshiach speedily, in our days, Amen!

Signed with broken hearts,
