The Yom Kippur tefillos in Yeshivas Slabodka in Bnei Brak were held with hundreds of talmidim of the yeshivah, current and past, Kikar H’Shabbat reported.

The tefillos were attended by the Roshei Yeshivos, HaGaon HaRav Dov Landua, HaGaon HaRav Moshe Hillel Hirsch, HaGaon HaRav Simcha Shmuel Zaks and HaRav Yitzchak Schwartz.

While the recital of Tehillim was taking place between Kol Nidrei and Maariv, the mispallelim were surprised when HaGaon HaRav Landua interrupted to request that ‘יושב בסתר’ be recited as it’s a segula to end a mageifah.

  1. Another segulah, tried and true are the vaccines that are available. Anyone who can be vaccinated should be vaccinated. That will stop most of the spread and prevent hospitalizations and deaths. People who refuse to be vaccinated should be refused entry to our shuls and yeshivas. That will further help stop the spread. These are segulos that hashem has sent us. We should definitely use them. Otherwise, we are denying hashem’s help that he has miraculously sent us.

  2. To Unommin Did the tefillos work? If someone davens for a shidduch but doesn’t date will they get married? If someone davens for children but doesn’t marry will he have children. Davening and hishtadlus usually go together.
