Rosh Yeshivat Kisei Rachamim HaRav Meir Mazuz called on the tzibur not to receive Tachanun on Yom Yerushalayim and to open the Aron Kodesh and recite Nishmas Kol Chai in thanks to HKBH for the great miracles.
The rav explained, “There is a koach to 28 Iyar, a blessed day and therefore, Tachanun should not be recited”.
The rav added, “There are those who opine that the chareidim are not connected. Quite the opposite for if one is truly chareidi, then he knows how to thank HKBH no less than on Purim Yerushalayim.
Rav Mazuz continues, “There are those who question how would HKBH send messengers who are not Shomer Torah and Mitzvos? This is not the question to be asked for HKBH makes us all his shluchim. Koresh worshipped two gods, the god of light and good, and HKBH made him a shaliach to build the Second Beis HaMikdash. HKBH also used Nebuchadnezzar who was loyal to the army of Aram and the soldiers who were not shomer Torah and Mitzvos. Are they worse than those loyal to Koresh? They are Jews and most of them were believers.
“HKBH made a miracle occur via their hands and He continues with miracles to this very day.”
The rav concludes that we must thank HKBH for the miracles and one who does not, lacks emunah, labeling it ‘kfira’. He added on Shabbos, at mincha, they did not recite Tzidkoscha Tzedek.
