I literally just got sent this from two people at once, at exactly the same time.
The Deputy Commander of the Givati Brigade (main combat unit in the Gaza area), literally crying, begged to convey to us, the chareidi tzibbur, that we’re not awake enough to the war situation in Gaza and that the fighting is very difficult and dangerous.
The terrible situation is that soldiers are being killed each and every night.
He emphasized that the main fighting at night starts from 11PM and continues until the morning, but the hardest hours are 2-5AM.
He brings his soldiers further and further inward to fight, but he doesn’t feel like he has enough support from the יראים ושלמים staying up at night to daven and say Tehillim for the soldiers.
He requested that the chareidim take responsibility for organizing minyanim to say Tehillim, especially during those hours.
– *all the chevre to do is to co-ordinate prayer opportunities in Israel & around the world and in all our yeshivas.
NYC is 6 hours behind Eretz Yisrael.
The times of the hardest fighting in Israel are happening between 5-11 pm New York time.
Please, if you are reading this and you can do ANYTHING, however small, to get a bunch of people together in your network to start saying tehillim for the soldiers fighting in Gaza through the night, please do that right now.
As soon as you finish reading this – use the horrible tech for a good purpose, for once.
Just cut and paste the message from the Deputy Commander of the Givati Brigade, and get some tehillim organised for these times in your networks.
Get the shuls involved.
The schools involved.
And of course, say some yourself.
BH, we are seeing open miracles here that it’s not 1,000 dead soldiers a day, like our enemies are hoping for.
But even one more dead soldier is too much.
It’s a whole world.
And it’s a world that our tehillim – you and me, and our friends, neighbours and families – can protect.
And may we just hear good news.
