This Motzei Shabbos, the English Speaking community of Ramat Beit Shemesh will have the rare honor of being addressed by the Gedolei Torah of America, who because of the non-stop incitement against the chareidi tzibur in Eretz Yisrael have decided that they must do whatever they can to arouse the hearts of the community to unite in bringing about a tremendous Kiddush Hashem.
HaGaon HaRav Aharon Feldman shlita, Rosh Yeshiva of Ner Israel Baltimore, is flying in to Eretz Yisrael in order to personally deliver the message of the American Gedolei Yisrael to the people of Ramat Beit Shemesh.
The Kenos will also include a video presentation of a recorded message from HaGaon HaRav Yaakov Perlow Shlita, the Novominsker Rebbe and chairman of the Moetzas Gedolei HaTorah of Agudas Israel of America, and of HaGaon HaRav Shmuel Kaminetzsky shlita, Rosh Yeshiva of the Talmudic Yeshiva of Philadelphia.
Just as the grave situation of the Chareidi tzibur in Eretz Yisrael has driven the Gedolim of America to call for the massive Atzeres Tefilla this Sunday, so too do the Beit Shemesh elections – which are viewed by all factions of Israeli society as being at the forefront of the current struggle – occupy a place of utmost concern in the hearts of the Gedolei Torah in America. That is why they have decided to be “yotzei chutz l’gidram” in order to urge the English speaking community of Ramat Beit Shemesh to rally around the chareidi candidate, Moshe Abutbul; and put forth all their energies to ensure his solid re-election.
This singularly unique Kenos will take place this Motzei Shabbos in the Beis Tefillah Yonah Avraham Shul (corner of Refaim and Luz Streets).
