      Rabbi Steineman: Prayer Day against Draft Coercion

      Lithuanian Mentor Rabbi Yehuda Leib Steineman has called for all Torah academies to participate in a massive nation-wide prayer service on Wednesday, the eve of the first of the month of Shevat. "Under these dire circumstances of decrees against Torah study and draft coercion, we must all gather and beseech the Almighty in order to be saved from the destruction of the world of Torah. All Yeshiva students are hereby called upon to pray fervently and dedicate themselves to extra hours of Torah study, that we may merit our salvation."
