Highly credible sources confirm to YWN that a massive Yom Tefillah is being scheduled to be held in Lower Manhattan, in light of the recent Gezeiros by the Israeli Government against Bnei Yeshivos. During the past few days, there was much talk of having a Yom Tefilla this coming Sunday, to coincide with the “Million Man Atzeres“, scheduled for this coming Sunday in Yerushalayim. Our sources tell us that logistics did not allow for the event to be held this Sunday, and instead next Sunday (March 9) has been chosen.
Additionally, we have learned that the event has the backing of the Gadolei HaDor in Eretz Yisroel, including Maran Hagon HaRav Aharon Leib Shteinman Shlita, as well as the backing of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah of Agudath Israel of America.
Further details on this event will be published as they become available to us.
