Vaad Harabanim

Rosh Hashanah of 5779 is just four hours away. The tempo of activity in each Jewish household increases as each moment hurries by. There are simanim to prepare, new clothes for each child, and prayers for the new year murmured between each task.

Who has the time now to go to the Kotel to pray?

The Leaders of our generation do. On behalf of the donors to Vaad Harabanim, at this fateful time a most prominent group of the leaders of our generation will convene at the holiest site in the world. With only four hours left until the Day of Judgement begins the venerable leaders of all the Jewish People will petition and plead for the donors to Vaad Harabanim.

This traditional prayer gathering was founded at the behest of Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv ztz"l. At the initiative of Rav Elyashiv ztz"l the greatest leaders of our generation have gathered at the Western Wall to pray for those who donate to Vaad Harabanim every Erev Rosh Hashanah. You can be assured that their prayers will be accepted and will form an effective defense on your behalf on the Day of Judgement.

Yes, on your behalf because you are not going to miss out this year. Every year you've seen the salvation and blessing that resulted from this awesome gathering on the eve of Judgement. This year is the year that you too will be included in the powerful prayers of the Leaders of our generation right before Rosh Hashanah for a good year.

In addition to the merit of the prayers at the Kotel, Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita has penned in his own handwriting a powerful blessing for those who donate to Vaad Harabanim: "The donors of Vaad Harabanim will merit a good year." A clear and compelling reason to donate to Vaad Harabanim.
