Thousands Expected at Kever Rashbi for Rosh Hashanah

Thousands of mispallalim are expected to be in Meron at the tziyun of the Rashbi ZT”L ZY”A on Rosh Hashanah as well as the nearby shteiblach. Rashbi Hachnasas Orchim officials report they are finalizing preparations to provide hot drinks and light refreshments for Shabbos parshas Nitzavim and both days of Rosh Hashanah. Organizers expect to go through thousands of liters of milk and two tons of mezonos for the guests in addition to 100 pots of kugel. The Chasdei Shabtai organization in cooperation with funding from the Leumit HMO will operate an emergency clinic for Rosh Hashanah as well. A physician will be present most of the time and medications will be given if the situation demands. Chasdei Shabtai requests that persons who take prescription medications regularly to bring a sufficient quantity with them rather than relying on the clinic to avoid overloading the system.
