Shomrei Emunim Rebbe: Daven for the Soldiers Like They Are Your Own Sons


shomrei-emunim-rebbeOn Friday night, Ashdod residents attended a tish of the Shomrei Emunim Rebbe amidst the tense security situation across the country.

During the tish, the Rebbe exhorted the attendees to daven for the IDF soldiers fighting on the ground in Gaza.

“Every person should imagine as if it is his own son fighting out there,” said the Rebbe.

The tish was the only one held Friday night in Ashdod, drawing over three hundred people, including rabbonim of the city. The tish was held at the Vizhnitzer Bais Medrash Imrei Chaim.

The tish lasted for about 3 hours, ending at 2:30 a.m. The Rebbe arrived home at approximately 3 a.m., and shortly thereafter air raid sirens sounded, indicating that a rocket was headed toward Ashdod from Gaza. The rocket landed on the outskirts of the city.

  4. Rabbi Avigdor Miller (a popular Chareidi Rabbi
    and author, born 1908 CE, died 2001 CE) delivered a free
    public lecture in the last year of his life, in which he taught that
    Jews should pray for the Israeli Army.
    I personally witnessed this; I was there.

    When a Jew recites Tefilat Shemoneh Esrei,
    he is permitted to add his own personal prayer requests
    in the middle of the final paragraph, which begins with
    Elokai Netzor Leshoni MeiRa.

    Rabbi Steven Pruzansky of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun
    in Teaneck NJ told me that I can recite it even on Shabbat
    and Yom Tov, because it is a communal tefillah,
    not a private bakashah.


  5. To David:
    Now is really not the time to bring up that old argument. Its time to come together with achdus and amass more zechusim
