Eida Chareidis Calls for Round-the-Clock Tefilos


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The rabbonim of the Eida Chareidis shlita have called for 24 hours of uninterrupted tefilos, which began on Thursday 28 Menachem Av at 13:00 and will end IY”H on erev shabbos at 13:00 in the large Meah Shearim shteibel. Those taking part in the tefilos will change shifts every two hours. Each shift will recite the entire Sefer Tehillim.

The reasons given for the move is the recent increase in activities against Yiddishkheit in Eretz Yisrael, the end of the Tal Law and increasing efforts to draft avreichim, chilul shabbos, the increasing number of rabbonim and maggidei shiurim who are ill, and for the success of the chinuch of the children as they prepare to return to their classrooms on Sunday, 2 Rosh Chodesh Elul.

  1. Dovid Hamelech’s wars and victories were not physical. It was the Milchamto Shel Torah that chased away all there opponents.
    Therefore, there is no need to be worried, they should just keep on learning, and the learning will defeat the 3 Billion Arabs, and the learning will easily defeat the Draft supporters.

  2. Tefillos are good and peaceful. If the hilonim are wise and want their state, which is about to get itself into a major war, to survive, they’ll pay attention to the gedolim (whom they usually revile).

    If they actually start dragging yeshiva kids into the army, especially without bending over backwards to make them feel welcome, they’ll end up with a lot of insubordination and monkey wrenching. If the kids perceive the army is trying to coerce them into compromising on Yiddishkeit, you could end up with some fragging.

    This isn’t a formula for success for a country considering a full scale war.

  3. Can someone please explain to me, PLEASE, why these “kanoyim” never say tehillim for other Jews not to go into the army who are not in their own group? Last I checked, the issur in going to the army is for ALL Jews, not just “sheyne Yidden” in yeshivas in Meah Shearim or even Bnai Brak.

    Since when is there blood redder than the blood of other Jews? Where is there outreach to convince other Jews not to serve, or are their lives worth more than the lives of other Jews? I have read rabbis of the Eyda and Agudah claim that they were the “real soldiers”. So does that mean that someone putting his life on the line in the Zionist army are nothing and hefker? What kind of Judaism is this??!!

  4. @yira I hope your joking. Milchamto she’ll Torah doesn’t leave one with blood in their hands such that they can’t build the Beis Hamikdash…

    Blood on their hands doesn’t mean literally, it means, that they were Oisek in a kind of Learning that distroyed the enemies.
    And the word ‘Dovid’ doesn’t mean literally Dovid himself. It means, the Saar shel Dovid Bashomayim.
