In light of the recent developments against Yeshivos in Eretz Yisroel, a massive Yom Tefilla is being scheduled for New York City – possibly as early as next Sunday.
Sources tell YWN that the event is currently being planned, and organizers are in the process of securing a permit to hold the Yom Tefilla in Lower Manhattan – in the area where a similar event was held around 10 years ago (Water Street).
Gedolim in America would like to create awareness among Frum Yidden in America about the unfolding situation in Eretz Yisroel, where most of the funding for Mosdos Hatorah will be cut by the Government, as well as the possibility of Yeshiva Bochrim being drafted to the Army.
Our sources tell us, that Gedolim would like tens of thousands to attend. It is unknown if Yeshivas such as Beth Medrash Gavoah will cancel Sedorim to allow Bochrim and Yungerleit to attend.
YWN will continue to bring you the latest updates on this story as soon as there is confirmation on exact details.
