Following the rash of tragedies which befell the Chareidi community in Israel on Monday, including the deaths of a baby, yeshivah bochurim and young mothers, the Rosh Yeshivah of Ponevezh, Hagaon HaRav Gershon Edelstein said that the moment that the winter z’man starts, everything will be calm, according to a Kikar HaShabbat report.
“The moment the z’man starts we’re calm,” said R’ Edelstein on Tuesday evening. “After the terrible tragedies which happened yesterday – if we begin learning – then Am Yisrael is protected. It has the zechus of limud Torah and then, with the help of Hashem, there won’t be tragedies.”
