Isn’t it interesting how tragedy often brings us together and how elections pull us apart? We are so connected to what we value and who we look up to. The good side is that we all look up to and point our prayers to the same place – Har HaBayit in Jerusalem. And, no matter who you wanted to vote for to rule the US, we all cast our vote for the same ruling Creator of the world. So our prayers for you here can truly re-unify us now G-d-willing.
I had to share some of your recent thank you feedback – besides for the usual girl meets boy stories, there are so many of you that just needed a little help from Above in normal life. Of course we have to ask Hashem for help in EVERYTHING!
Irina came to us because her son Ahron was having some developmental issues when she signed up for 40 days with us. Through the weeks of prayers she was thrilled to see him improve in every area – his teacher even sent home a beautiful note saying that in the last *4-6* weeks he had a huge improvement, and the speech therapist said that he made a great leap just after the prayers started. Not everyone’s prayers are answered so quickly and so obviously but for Irina this was a clear wink from Above that her prayer agent made a big difference. We are so happy for them both!
Shelly wrote us when she was having a really tough time in her marriage. She had gone to several different marriage counselors and had gotten prayer agents before, but life at home was still a rough ride. After giving the 40-days one more try, somehow this time the prayers took hold. She said that what was interesting is that she could feel it getting better, like a beautiful sort of energy traveling all the way to California, and that things had been well ever since. “Thank G-d” is all we can say! Good for her for continuing to try and persevere until she got to the place she wanted.
Just like you, we are just doing our hishtadlut (putting in our maximum required effort) with prayer at the Kotel and charity, and hoping G-d will do the rest.
And we are not just helping you, you are also helping us.
Your donations to support this project are literally helping to build the holiest place in the world by filling it with talmidei chachamim (Torah scholars) and Torah-learning. You are a partner in helping Torah to thrive in the King’s Palace. So thank you also – fellow mitzva-partner!
Now to Zos Chanukah! What some circles refer to as the 3rd Neilah of the year is almost here! If you haven’t already done so this is your last chance to get your prayers in before the closing of the gates (although we know that the gates of tears are never closed!). With what could you use a little help from Above?
With blessings that all of your dreams are soon realized and that all the bumpy roads on the path of your life are soon smoothed out,
