In a rare video filmed by a non-Jew on Rosh Hashanah night in Bnei Brak, a huge crowd can be seen lining up to receive the bracha of HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievky for a Shana Tova.

This Rosh Hashanah, despite Israel’s fourth coronavirus wave spurred by the Delta variant, most shuls operated without coronavirus restrictions as so many Israelis are recovered or fully vaccinated, drastically reducing the chances of serious illness caused by COVID.

Prior to Rosh Hashanah last year, when many minyanim were still held outdoors and participants at indoor minyanim wore masks throughout the tefillos, special preparations were made to allow Bnei Brak residents to receive HaRav Chaim’s blessings for a Shana Tovah through the construction of a special bridge after a period of seven months when HaRav Chaim didn’t hold kabalas kahal.

  1. Why won’t Yeshiva World publish an article with this headline?

    ” In a powerful display of Emunas Tzaddikim, 40,000 thousand Jews undertake the difficult journey to Uman to fulfill Rebbe Nachmam’s Request”.

    It’s certainly more impressive, and far more difficult, than waiting in line.
