Misaskim’s annual tehillim asifa has changed the meaning of Aseres Yemei Tshuva for more than 30,000 children who participate in ways that little else has. On Tuesday September 10th, the 6th day of the Aseres Yemei Teshuva, there will be even more change. For the first time, people will be able to have names of cholim displayed on a large screen in the Bobover Beis Medrash that will be visible while the children are saying the tehilim. Individuals will also have the opportunity to have a Mi SheBeirach recited in the zechus of a refuah sheleima for their loved ones.
More than 30,000 children take part in this special event, which is broadcast around the world. The annual event, which is organized and coordinated by the Misaskim organization, will take place at 1:00pm at the magnificent Bobover Bais Medrash in Boro Park. 6,000 yeshiva children from nearly 40 yeshivos will fill the huge bais medrash with more than 25,000 others joining via live hookup in 130 locations in Jewish communities throughout the world.
The children will recite six kapitlech tehilim on behalf of the cholim, particularly other children. The tehilim is followed by Mincha, Avinu Malkeinu, Shlosh Esrei Middos, Kabbolas Ohl Malchus Shomayim, and Oleinu.
“The response in the community has been so overwhelming that we decided to add even more meaning to the tefillos of tinokos shel beis raban by adding the listing and mishebrach for specific cholim,” said Yaakov Cohen, Executive Director of Misaskim. To be included in the listing or MiSheberach, please got to www.misaskim.org or call Misaskim at T: 718-854-4548.
