Israel relies on winter seasonal rains for 90% of it's water. The rainy season this year basically hasn't been...rainy. With about 1 month left, people are starting to wake up to what may be a severe drought in Israel. In that vain, this notice came out on our community mailing list...
B"H - We will have a prayer for Rain on Tuesday - the Day of (Israeli) Elections,
at 3:30 PM at the Kotel (Western Wall).
Let's join together in prayer to Hashem so that rain will fall in Israel. Please bring siddurim and tehillim (prayer books and psalm books).
Should it rain on Tuesday - the prayer for rain will be canceled.
(It's raining! Either the prayers were very successful, or canceled due to the rain.)
