Countdown to Moshiach: Worldwide Jewish Prayer at 11 A.M. EDT
Jews around the world will simultaneous be part of a unique worldwide Jewish Prayer for Peace and Moshiach, the Jewish term for the Savior, at 5 p.m. Sunday, 11 a.m. EDT, three days before Yom Kippur.
The idea for Jews to pray together at the same moment is to add power to the prayer to G-d to bring the Moshiach and peace to Jews and to all of the world, explained rabbis.
The event will take place in California at 8 a.m., in London at 4 p.m., Paris at 5 p.m., and in Australia at 1 a.m. Monday morning.
Rabbi Lazer Brody will join Tamar Yonah on her live show on Arutz Sheva - Israel National Radio shortly before 5 p.m. Israeli time to talk about the prayer and then recite it simultaneously with Tamar, listeners and tens of thousands of Jews around the world.
A YouTube video explaining the day has been viewed more than 90,000 times. It shows Jews all around the world planning for the day and making sure to set aside money for charity.
Under the headline of “All Jews As One,” organizers said, “This unique event in Jewish history has been sponsored by motivated Jewish people with help and blessings of rabbis around the world of all affiliations -- Ashkenazim, Sephardim, Chassidim -- with a strong desire that all Jews will be united at the same instant, observant or not, whatever beliefs, affiliation, age, nationality to end all suffering and to welcome the revelation of Hashem's (G-d) Name.”
The prayer in English is as follows: "Master of the Universe, we the children of Israel ask for Moshiach to redeem us now and with mercy from exile and all suffering to reveal Your name in the world and to bring peace."
The event has the blessing of Rabbi Chaim Kanievksy of Bnei Brak, Rabbi Nissim Karelitz of Bnei Brak, Rabbi Lazer Brody, formerly of the United States and currently of Ashdod, Rabbi Shalom Lipskar of Florida, and the French-speaking Rabbi David Pinto of Ashdod.
