A large Shabbos rally is planned by the Eida Chareidis this coming Shabbos in protest of the massive Chilul Shabbos expected to take place around the Eurovision Song Contest being hosted in Tel Aviv.
The Eidah Chareidis pashkavilim under the banner “The Cry of Shabbos” call for the tzibur to turnout against the “toeiva performance”.
Prominent rabbonim shlita are expected to participate in the rally, including the Toldos Aharon Rebbe Shlita. Thousands are expected to take part.
YWN-Israel reported that HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita warns of the “sakona” surrounding the Chilul Shabbos and is concerned regarding a ‘kitrug’ in Shomayim, calling for the tzibur to gather in shuls at chatzos on Friday (Thursday night to Friday morning) to be mispallel, including Tehillim (Chapters 13, 123, 130, and 142), shofar, recitation of Shema, and Kabolas Ohl Malchus Shomayim.
Rav Kanievsky also called on the Tinokos Shel Beis Rabon to Daven on Thursday at noon.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has authorized 30,000 workers to be Mechalel Shabbos in connection with the Eurovision event, as YWN-Israel reported.
