Today in the National-Religious community, psecial shiurim are held throughout the day and yes we do stand for the moment of silence. There are many sources for this.
Because Aaron was silent, he was rewarded that G-d spoke exclusively to him
Rav Papa said: The merit of attending a house of mourning lies in the silence observed.
(Talmud, Berachot 6b)
In youth, one learns to talk; in maturity, one learns to be silent. This is man’s problem: that he learns to talk before he learns to be silent.
(Rabbi Nachman of Breslav)
The power to be silent at certain moments of life and of history is an important strength. It expresses the awareness that G-d is infinite, and cannot be encapsulated in our human conceptions of what should take place.
The Talmud tells of an instance in which Moses himself was told by G-d to be silent. G-d showed him in a vision all future generations of the Jewish people, and the leaders of each generation. Moses was greatly impressed by the wisdom of Rabbi Akiva. Then he saw the way the Romans tortured him to death. “Is this the reward of his Torah knowledge?” Moses asked. G-d answered: “Be silent. Thus it arose in My thought”.
This is not to say that the Torah advocates a fatalistic approach to life. Before the event, one must do everything possible to prevent tragedy. But once it has happened, G-d forbid, through the acceptance and the silence we reach a special closeness to the Divine. Our Sages tell us that because Aaron was silent, he was rewarded by G-d speaking directly to him.
In our generation, too, there is a need for this power of silence. It is not a passive power, but one that leads to vigorous and joyous action. The Jewish response to the harrowing events of the Shoah is the determined and energetic action to rebuild Jewish family life and Jewish knowledge.
Through our power of silence we too, like Aaron, will merit Divine revelation. G-d will bring the Messiah, rebuilding the Temple and bringing lasting peace to the world.
(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)
If you have something to share, please..
YES THERE IS MILCHEMET MITZVAH IN OUR TIMES!
The Ramban writes, “Behold we were commanded with conquest in every generation.” (Supplement to the Rambam, Sefer HaMitzvot, positive commandment #4).
The Rambam give 3 definitions of Milchemet mitzvah and the 3rd, “To save Israel from the hand of the enemy.”(Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Milachim, 5:1)
So we have a milchemet mitzvah twice over, conquering the land and saving the nation.
Everyone must serve, yeshiva bachur or not!
avhaben, does not fighting for closed streets go against the yeshiva world philosophy of never “angering the goyim”?
I would assume in the Lakewood/Black hat world not to many mothers have the privilege of staying at home as their society forces them to both take care of the house and to provide for her family.
I have a better idea!
The masses of frum Jews in Boro Park could all come home, to the very land that has been awaiting us for 2,000 years. The very land that in the last 64 years has been zoche to se millions of her children come home. The very land that we wept and prayed to be able to return to, but no longer have to b/c we are only a 9 hour plan ride away.
This idea to shut down the streets of Boro Park, while not practical and even dangerous to attempt in Galut shows how those frum Jews yearn to be in a place where they can close the streets on shabbat and that is only in Eretz Yisrael.April 16, 2012 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm in reply to: Action for Pollard: 100s to call White House Tomorrow (Monday) #867757

Popa, I spoke with a close friend of Esther Pollard, she said Esther told her that she would neither support nor oppose an effort like this. Right now she is extremely busy dealing with numerous aspects of this case.
Please continue to call, through facebook 150 have so far called.
This guy does not even deserve a response.
He should go back to where he came from.
Maybe he is afraid that Women in the Yeshiva world will not only have more secular knowledge, but might be able to out learn their Husbands as well.
You are simply scared.
I hope, everyone joins in.
Please spread the word!!!
A holy Jew asks a sincere question, he must receive a warm and sincere answer.
