Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Masses made their way on erev rosh chodesh to Har Hamenuchos on the first yarzheit of Maran Hagon HaRav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv ZT”L. Due to the large number of vehicles headed in that direction, traffic slowed to a crawl, causing major backups into Givat Shaul. Despite the increase volume and multiple requests, Egged stuck to its schedule of one bus per hour to and from the Central Bus Station, causing many people to miss the bus as it was quickly filled.

  1. what will you-yes YOU-be doing for Rav Elyashiv in his zchus lekovod his first yahrtzeit & for his holy neshama to have an aliyah?
    1)Learn an extra hour of time or at least a half hour.

    2)read to your child(ren) about Rav Elyashiv & his wonderful middos we can all learn from including his love for torah etc….

    3)say a few chapters of tehillim in his zchus.

    4)make a deal with yourself to improve in one specific middah until his yahrtzeit next year.

    the list goes on & on with many more things you can do in the zchus of Rav Elyashiv Z”TL

    FOR ALL THAT HE DID FOR KLAL YISROEL, now its time we show some appreciation & let Hashem see our love for Torah & its leaders.

  2. Perhaps instead of everyone posting musar for others lets simply forego some of the negativity and sinas chinam that is pervasive among those who might disagree with the “party line” with regard to all the public policy issues being debated here. There are yidden who are shomrei torah umitzvot who may dissent from the popular view regarding charedi draft, WoW davening with tallis/tefillin, widening the membership of the body that makes appointments to the government rabbinical postions, etc. Rav Elyashiv, Z”tl, was known for encouraging a vigorous debate among his talmidim on issues that might arise during one of his d’rashas…lets emulate his willingness to toerate dissent
