As the establishment of the Bennett-Lapid government approaches, the Moetzet Chachmei HaTorah of Shas published a letter calling for a day of tefillah on Erev Rosh Chodesh Tammuz.

“Behold darkness is covering the earth and it’s a time of tzara for Yaakov,” the letter stated. “The tzaros increase from day to day, both for individuals and the public. Hashem should save us.”

“And especially now when the haters of Hashem formed an alliance against Hashem and banded together to establish an evil government, with their entire intention to uproot the Torah and Yahadus from Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael.”

“Therefore we are calling to everyone in the Am HaKodesh in every location to gather together and stand up for our souls, on Wednesday, Erev Rosh Chodesh Tamuz, to cry out with a great and bitter cry in tefillah and supplications to Hashem for the yeshua of Klal Yisrael and for the swift elevation of the Keren HaTorah.”

“Atzarot tefillah and selichos will be held in the shuls and batei medrash, as well as the kriyas of perkei Tehillim: 20, 83, 121, 130, and 142. And everyone, men, women, and children in every location should at least recite these pirkei Tehillim. And everyone who is mitza’ar with the tzibur will zocheh to witness the nechama of the tzibur.”

  1. I don’t get this
    They didn’t unite against Sitra Achra and wanted Netanyahu to give them MORE PERKS. And more perks.

    The Charadim opted out. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT? The Zionist will come knocking and begging and give more apartments to charedi MK and their families.

    “Religious Zionist”, Lapidess, Bennet, and the Russian power grab is on and now is their turn to quench their thirst with “benefit”.

    May the almighty help us all anti semetisim. No I didn’t mean AOC, Omar, and Rasid or I ment from Lapid and Russian and Terrorists.

  2. It seems past due to have a united Torah-centric party under the counsel of gedolim – everyone, livtvish, sfardi, chassidic, etc. If we pool our votes together and make a united push to get every pro-Torah Israeli to speak with one voice it will be a game changer.

  3. Maybe we have failed rabbinical leadership, those who are willing to hurt their community,( Covid, Meron, keeping their people uneducated both in Torah and in life ) to keep power and control – let’s look carefully at the story of Kamsa and Bar Kamsa. Who does the Gemara Focus on the failure, Rabbinic leadership- tamidi Chachamim in the room and not saying a word but the Gemara blames Rabbi Zecharia ben Avkolos for the destruction. His stubbornness to hold to the letter of the law without seeing the bigger picture. When we trust people who call names to people with who we May disagree, instead of realizing how our behaviors may have lead to people taking negative feelings to the Religious people and Religion. It’s time for us to do Teshuva. Taking part in the government to ensure it’s successful, for all of Am Yisroel and not just the chardi communities. To show hakarat hatov to each other for what we have, which is showing hakarat hatov to ha Kadosh bruch who.
    We may have a new form of Avoda Zara today called Torah – When it’s used, for manipulating purposes, when it’s used for power and control. Keep Torah pure keep it away from Politics.

  4. ““And especially now when the haters of Hashem formed an alliance against Hashem and banded together to establish an evil government, with their entire intention to uproot the Torah and Yahadus from Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael.””

    This totally ignores that, regardless of the particular “government” the Zionists put there, the very purpose of Zionism and its Zionist State of Israel is, of course, “to uproot the Torah and Yahadus from Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael.””

  5. @reivinYou obviously either have a screw loose in your head or you know nothing about Israeli politics don’t diss what

  6. I see a child enveloped in flames. The bystanders are afraid; they do nothing, or else they are only trying to save the building. I see the child. I rush in. Should I first ask my neighbor whether he, too, sees the child? Should I worry whether, in my haste, I am jostling someone, or perhaps hindering the salvage of the building by running in? Perhaps I am causing a draft, fanning the fire?
    “‘But,’ you might ask, ‘what if you are too late? What if the building collapses on top of the child in a roaring conflagration before you reach it?’ To this I reply: ‘Were I to be buried under it, I would at least have done my duty.’” (Rav Shamshon Raphael Hirsch, Letter Nineteen, The Nineteen Letters).

    Ramban on Devarim 27:26

    One who shirks the obligation to uphold everyone’s Judaism (as much as possible) is “Arur

    “And in the end without public transportation secular Israelis will be mechalael Shabbos anyway. In ways that are probably a lot worse than riding a bus or watching public entertainment”
    Cop out
    even secular of all Stripes it’s obvious the difference between national observance Vs individuals non-observance


    How could one compare individuals or even individual communities with a collective in our Holy Land
    that the whole world and Jews turn to as a lodestar and revolve around the atmosphere of Israel

    And for the record when we pushed more level of observance governmentally such as during the 80s the country started becoming more observant collectively

  7. How on earth is a government filled with blackmail, corruption, insider-dealing and complete neglect for the people they serve (where is the Meron inquiry?) considered a Torah-true government?
    I’ll take the alternative.

  8. We simply don’t understand the ways of Hashem. As with the Meron disaster, everything comes from Hashem. Maybe if our ladies were more tzniusdik and did not wear sheitels and stopped driving, speaking on mobile phones in public, even if they are not chas veshalom “smart”phones, wore longer sleeves and hems, none of this would have happened.
