Rav Shteinman’s Instructions Regarding the Million Man Atzeres


It is being reported that Maran HaGaon HaRav Aaron Yehuda Leib Shteinman Shlita is calling on women capable of coming to take part in Sunday’s Million Man Atzeres in Yerushalayim. The Gadol Hador is instructing women and girls who live in Yerushalayim to take part in the large tefilla event to decry the government’s Chilul Hashem. Women who reside outside of the capital are not required to come, but are welcome to do so if they so choose.

The rav adds that women not taking part in the event should recite Tehillim at home at the same time, Sunday Rosh Chodesh Adar II 5774 from 16:00-18:00 to call on HKBH to remove the gezeiros against the bnei yeshivos and chareidi community.

Regarding talmidei torah, Rav Shteinman is quoted saying that only children 9-year-old and older, who learn in Jerusalem should attend. Children from other cities in Israel should not attend. Others, talmidim in yeshivos ketanos and above should all attend.

It appears the amud for the rabbonim who will lead the Tehillim will be near Binyanei Ha’uma (Jerusalem Convention Center), accommodating HaGaon HaRav Baruch Mordechai Mizrachi Shlita and HaGaon HaRav Reuven Elbaz Shlita. There will not be a bimah for Gedolei Yisrael Shlita to emphasize the event is an atzeres tefilla and not a protest or rally. The Gedolim will however be organized in one central area. Women will be instructed to congregate on Yaffo Street.

While Israel Police is preparing for 400,000 people, organizers believe there will be 800,000 or more participants.

  1. Amazing. Hopefully all the Tephillos of Kllal Yisroel will be accepted by Borie Olam & the Evil Wicked Government will have a mapalah! Vilamalshinim al tehe sickva!

  2. What they need to do is stay there three days like in the time of purim and pray three days and nights. This could be done in shifts.

  3. Adjusted for population size, 400,000 people in Israel is roughly the equivalent of three to four million in the United States.

  4. Another element that deserves contemplation is ma. Zo. Asher oso elokim and to recognize that if the reshaim are inspired or allowed to act against lomdei tora rl. Then we need to introspect. Whether our own dedication is somehow lacking
    Hashem yerachaim

  5. Reply to #4.
    I’m guessing that in the days of the Purim story, you would have chosen to not fast and pray as it would impact your work schedule. this is no less a tragic period than then.

    It’ll be on Sunday starting at 9:00 am NY & Miami time, 2:00 pm in London, 6:00 am in Los Angeles, and from what I understand it’ll last up to 2 hours.

  7. Baruch Hashem we have you, Akuperma, willing to give up any limud Torah on your part so that the rest of us can truly understand what is happening.

    Your schar for this sacrifice will undoubtedly be beyond anything anyone else here will receive.

  8. Why don’t all the rabbonim use their seichel and tell all the boys to go to the Induction Centre sign up and just flood the idf then they would just throw them all out. What’s wrong with that plan?

  9. Once again the Gadol Hador has taken the higher road than those looking to make a Chilil Hashem or worse a physical altercation in furthering their agenda. By emphasizing that this is a atzeres tefilla and not a protest rally he simultaneously calling for a unity while stressing what can and what cannot be done. Hopefully this event will raise awareness and increase unity so that the bargaining table will be strengthened with torah and deal can be made which will be acceptable to all involved B”H.
