With Rosh Hashanah nearly upon us, we realize what a monumental Yom Hadin we are facing. The world is an extremely unstable place. There is, of course, the Corona Virus that has wreaked havoc and continues to wreak havoc worldwide. People are becoming ill, some seriously. The virus is also threatening the stability and viability of our shuls, schools, yeshivos and chadorim.
In Eretz Yisroel, the new government presents a tremendous challenge for frum Yidden. In America, the new winds of “progressivism” and “wokeism” that are blowing similarly threaten our way of life. There is a rise in terror and lawlessness throughout the world, something which is harmful to society.
We need tefillos! We need the zechus of the Chofetz Chaim to protect us!
Without a doubt, however, the riveting videocast slated to be shown on Motzoei Shabbos. September 4th, will be an event that any Yid who wants to connect and unite with Klal Yisrael k’ish echad b’lev echad while internalizing the message and chizuk from the Chofetz Chaim in advance of Rosh Hashanah, would not want to miss.
To hear the roar of Rav Boruch Mordechai Ezrachi as he arouses us to teshuva; To feel the heart of Rav Shimon Galei as he cries and begs, invoking rachamei shomayim; To absorb the deep, inspiring words of Rav Yaakov Hillel and the chizuk of Rav Nissan Kaplan, will provide you with a unique viewing experience replete with chizuk and inspiration.
Don’t miss it!
