Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, distinguished Torah scholar, has promised to pray for the health, success, zivug and parnassah of a select few when he is called up to the Torah on Shavuos morning. The group that will be prayed for are those who donate to Kupat Ha’Ir’s Shavuos campaign. Donations will go directly to assist needy families of Torah scholars in Israel.
Rav Gershon Edelstein has also joined the project, taking upon himself to pray personally for the same list of names.
Shavuos is almost upon us, and many families do not have enough funds to celebrate even a modest Yom Tov. They have turned to Kupat Ha’ir, under the auspices of Rav Kanievsky, shlit”a, as their last resort. Please, help them be able to enjoy the special Yom Tov of Shavuos.
Names will be accepted for the next three days only. During this special time, when we prepare ourselves to receive the Torah again, giving to this charity has special meaning and extraordinary effect.
Apart from the tremendous merit of helping the families of Torah scholars celebrate the joy of Shavuos, Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlit”a, has promised that all donors will be included in his special blessing of the Mi Shebeirach when the Rav is called up to the Torah for the ultimate honor of reading of the Aseres Hadibros, the Ten Commandments.
