Migdal HaEmek Chief Rabbi HaRav Dovid Grossman Shlita has decided on a new venue for his main slichos event for talmidim of his Ohr Yisrael program from the Kosel to Kever Rashbi in Meron due to tznius issues at the Kosel.
The rav holds the annual slichos event at the Kosel, but this year, he feels the compromised tznius standard at the holy site compels him to seek a new venue. The event will take place on Wednesday of the Aseres Yimei Teshuvah.
Rav Grossman’s staff is organizing the event with police and arrangements are being made to accommodate the thousands of expected participants.
