HaRav Landau To Klal Yisrael: “Situation In North Is Perilous, Cry Out Like At Ninveh”

Rosh Yeshivas Slabodka, HaGaon HaRav Dov Landau, held a gathering of Rabbanim at his home on Monday in order to transmit a message to Klal Yisrael about the perilous situation in Israel and the dire need for fervent tefillos.

“The tzibur doesn’t know how dangerous the situation is in the north,” HaRav Landau said. “They [Hezbollah] have the abilities and we need Rachamei Shamayim.”

“They are also rising up from afar [Iran and its proxies] to eliminate, destroy, and murder us. We’re obligated to cry out with a great and bitter cry [זעקה גדולה ומרה], like in Ninveh, to increase our tefillos and to cry out to Avinu ShebeShamayim that He have mercy on us. I request from you – wake up and cry out in tefillah.”

The Rabbanim who participated in the gathering included HaRav Avraham Tzvi Margaliot, the Rav of Karmiel, HaRav Shmuel Montag, the Rav of a kehilla in Netivot, HaRav Meir Kessler, the Rav of Modiin Illit, HaRav Yitzchak Mordechai Rubin, the Rav of Kehillas Bnei Torah in Har Nof, HaRav Shevach Tzvi Rosenblatt, a Rav in Bnei Brak, HaRav Yechiel Bamberger, a Rav in Haifa, HaRav Yaakov Yisrael Pincus, a Rav in Ofakim, and HaRav Zalman Dovid Zuckerman, a Rav in the Givat Shaul neighborhood of Jerusalem.

The Rosh Yeshivah conveyed a similar message last week to several askanim from the south.

  1. He used Ninveh, because the end of Sefer Yonah is the only place that clearly teaches us that Hkb”h has tremendous compassion to all of Humanity including Goyim. We say it every Yom Kippur to be Mechazek our sincere love towards all of the Eibibishter’s decent people including Goyim.
    Then, Hkb”h will never again instigate any hatred or antisemitism towards us.

  2. One of the last things that Rav gershon edilson said to the public was about the dangers from Egypt saw it on ywn but then nobody knew what he meant
    Was in Israel when there was the last Lebanon war and in toldas aharon sukkot was empty nobody was there but ever since trump we think Israel is the breath we live from a tragedy

  3. All the Rishonim ראשונים agree that in the time of a צרה there is a מצות עשה to cry out to Hashem for help. If a person does not cry out to Hashem, then Hashem might send some type of p. to that person. Hashem is waiting to hear from us.

  4. Hashem is waiting for all of klal yisroel to get together for serious Teshuva and Achdus from all levels of yidden rather frum or reform or Zionist etc…. like Mordechai and Esther did in the story of Purim and it saved klal yisroel.

    It shocks the rebono Shel Olam our loving father Hashem king of kings ruler of the world. That the gedolei hador from all over the world rather it’s Israel or America or England etc…. have not gathered together to make a time for serious Teshuva kinnus and Serious fasting like we did in the story of Purim. What are we waiting for living in denial instead of waking up and FACING REALITY????? Have we not seen enough serious tragedies and tzaros hitting klal yisroel from all corners of the world to accept Hashems wake up call for serious Teshuva and Achdus together so Hashem can send Mashiach already bkarov?????

    We can’t fool our loving father Hashem. Cause Hashem knows every thought that goes into our minds and we can’t tell Hashem we didn’t get Hashems message for Teshuva after seeing so much time of non stop horrific tragedies hitting klal yisroel. HOW WILL YOU YES YOU ANSWER HASHEM WHEN ASKED WHY YOU DIDN’T IMMEDIATELY ACCEPT HASHEMS WAKE UP CALL FOR SERIOUS TESHUVA AND ACHDUS AFTER WATCHING SO MUCH TZAROS HITTING KLAL YISROEL??????

    May we all finally wake up from denial and FACE REALITY and accept Hashems wake up call for serious Teshuva and Achdus together so Hashem can send Mashiach already bkarov.

  5. Tefila is always important, but there is also a time for actions. As HKB”H said to Moshe Rabeinu, our greatest leader ever, at a time when he was Davening –
    וַיֹּ֤אמֶר ה’ אֶל־מֹשֶׁ֔ה מַה־תִּצְעַ֖ק אֵלָ֑י דַּבֵּ֥ר אֶל־בְּנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל וְיִסָּֽעוּ׃

    There is currently a significant manpower shortage in the army, to the point that they have had to pull Talmidim in Yeshivot Hesder and pre-army Mechinot from their Gemaras earlier than scheduled so that they can assist in defending the עם ה’ היושב בציון. I’m not sure why their Torah learning is any less important than that of a certain other group of young men who avoid this Milchemes Mitzvah – I’d like to hear something from this great Gedolim on that…

  6. I wonder if they would consider registering to fight in the army. הכל יוצאין אפילו חתן מחדרו וכלה מחופתה. I can’t understand why the Tannaim don’t just say הכל צועקין בתפילה or הכל לומדים לזכותם, or something else like that. Did the tana kamma and R’ Yehuda not know that our tefilose are even more powerful in a milchemes mitzvah/chovah? Is the point that only once the enemies start killing people inside Yerushalayim and Bnei Brak, only then would this halacha be lmayseh? or even then not?
