A special Father and Sons tefilla will be held at the Kosel on Sunday, Rosh Chodesh Iyar at 6:00pm at the Kosel. Thousands are expected to participate, including maggidei shiurei daf yomi, participants in daf yomi, and children from around the country, as the special tefilla of the Shelah HaKadosh is recited.
The event will surround a hachnasas sefer torah at the Kosel in memory of HaGaon HaKadosh Rav Meir Shapira of Lublin Z”TL ZY”A, the father of daf yomi. After the hachnasas sefer torah, the tefilla of the Shelah HaKadosh will be recited, as is the minhag [usually on erev Rosh Chodesh Sivan, this year Shabbos].
In preparation, on erev Shabbos, a delegation of the Me’orot Daf Yomi headed by Rav Chaim Dovid Kovalevsky visited Maran HaGaon Shmuel Halevy Wosner Shlita, who wrote a letter in the sefer torah.
Other gedolim who wrote letters in the sefer torah last week include Maran Rav Elyashiv Shlita, Sanzer Rebbe Shlita, Rav Shteinman Shlita, Nadvorna Rebbe Shlita, Rav Lefkowitz Shlita, Rav Kanievsky Shlita and Rav Karelitz Shlita.
