Urgent call on Shules and communities

י"ב תמוז ה' אלפים תשע"ד

With a heavy heart due to the current dire situation in Eretz Yisrael, the Rabbinical Council of Victoria (RCV) and Council of Orthodox Synagogues of Victoria (COSV) have joined to call on all Shuls and communities to increase in their Torah, Tefilla and Tzedaka over the coming weekend.

Firstly, we request that the members of all communities increase their Tzedaka contributions before candle lighting on Erev Shabbat

Additionally we are asking that in every shul:

  • The following chapters of Tehilim - 20, 121, 124 - be said at each of the tefillot on Shabbat
  • Special prayers be said for the safety of Tzahal and all of Am Yisrael living in Eretz Yisrael.
  • All Rabbis dedicate their sermons to the current situation and where possible a special shiur also so dedicated might be arranged, perhaps before or after mincha.

With prayers and hopes for a swift and lasting solution to the dire circumstances facing our brethren in the Holy Land

Rabbi Meir Shlomo Kluwgant, President RCV/ORA
Isaac Teller, President COSV
