Dati leumi rabbonim are calling for an atzeres tefilla at the Kosel in opposition to the ongoing negotiations between Israel and the PA (Palestinian Authority) that many fear will result in additional Israeli land giveaways.

Minister of Housing (Bayit Yehudi) Uri Ariel has released an open letter calling on the tzibur to take part in the atzeres tefilla in which he writes;

Rav Druckman, Rav Lior and Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu Shlita are expected to take part in the event.

This is big, very big. We need not just this one faction, but a confluence of all leadership – Rabbanim across the board. This is not only important for the effect it would have to the public, but also would likely increase the hashpa’ah in shamayim, as a result of a united front.
