Mohel App to Strengthen the Mitzvah of Milah

I send this to our Chaveirim regarding the critical need to strengthen and uphold the most essential Mitzva of Bris Milah.

Furthermore, doctors use a clamp that is prohibited – causing crushing pain and trauma to the child. [...Click headline above for more...]

This past Sunday was the Tu B Av Together Let’s Daven Together (A Yad L’ Achim Initiative). There were rabbonim offering words of inspiration as well as musical performances by well known singers. It was shown in many countries throughout the world with chapters of Tehilim recited by Klal Yisrael lead by each of the rabbonim. Donations were accepted, but not required for anyone who wanted to submit a name for a shidduch as well as a refuah sheleima. Though, Tu B Av came out this past Shabbos, the concept for tefilos especially for a shidduch was supported by various rabbonim including Rav Chaim Kanievsky from Eretz Yisrael. The list of rabbonim who spoke included Rav Eytan Feiner, Rav Yissocher Frand, Rav Shimon Galai, Rav Warren Goldstein, Rav Dovid Goldwasser, Rav YY Jacobson, Rav Paysach Krohn, Rav Berel Lazar, Rav David Ozeri, Rav Yisrael Reisman and Rav Asher Weiss. An estimated 500,000 worldwide would be participating.  [...Click headline above for more...]
