Tefillos are continuing on behalf of Rishon L’Tzion HaGaon HaRav Mordechai [Tzemach ben Mazel] Eliyahu Shlita. Tefillos were organized earlier in the day in the rav’s shul in Kiryat Moshe. At 3:30pm, tefillos will be recited on his behalf at the kever of the Chid’a.
Rav Eliyahu was responsible for bringing the remains of the Chid’a for kvura in Eretz Yisrael during his tenure as chief rabbi.
