Prayer gathering for the Rav, this Wed. 6.30pm at the Kotel

Another pray gathering is being organised for the health of the Rav, and for the matzav generally.

It’s 6.30 pm this Wednesday evening, June 19th, at the Kotel.

They will be saying seven Tikkun Haklalis together – but even if you only come for a little, and only say one Tikkun Haklali, or if you only stop what you’re doing wherever you are in the world at the time and say one Tikkun Haklali and / or your own prayer for the Rav to be healthy, and for the matzav here to improve – dayenu.


This is a recording I just got sent, where you can hear Rav Yaakov Salmanovitch speaking about the importance of coming to the atzeret, and how the whole thing with Rav is ‘above nature’, and how the tzaddikim require our prayers in order to do what they need to do in the world (in Hebrew).


This is the first atzeret that’s been called since before the atrocity of Simchat Torah.

If you read the One in a Generation books, you’ll find a handful of examples of where these prayer gatherings were called at very crucial times, like for example when the ‘stabbing intifada’ was going on in Jerusalem a few years ago – and literally, the day after the atzeret, it stopped.

And what’s going on these days makes ‘the stabbing intifada’ look like child’s play.

So please join in, in whatever way you can, even minimally.

We are praying for the Rav’s health – but as I keep saying here, we’re not really praying for the Rav.

We’re praying for ourselves, and Am Yisrael.

And so much ‘sweetening’ is required.


Don’t be apathetic, cynical or lazy!

Move forward with simple emuna, simple emunat tzaddikim, and just join the prayers.

Don’t let all the yetzers distract you from doing the simple things, the simple prayers, the simple actions, that really do turn everything around.

And may we just hear good news.

    The Rav’s kav updated the time of the atzeret to 20:30. It will begin with Maariv followed by 7 Tikkun HaKlalis. For anyone wanting to double check themselves the number is: 02 5326 502.

    I went to the Hotel at 6:30 pm. There was a ceremony for Givati soldiers in the main plaza and I proceeded to say the 7 Tikun Klali’s alone since I didn’t see any sizable gathering in the men’s section away from the ceremony.

      They changed the time and I was offline, so couldn’t update.

      But ‘Anonymous’ – there are no mistakes. You should know that you ‘bound’ all the the soldiers to the Rav by showing up when you did and saying the TKs at the kotel then….

      And there were literally thousands of them there. Your TKs were maybe the most important ones of the night.
