Your Prayer Request to Rebbe Shimon Bar Yochai on Lag B'Omer

b'Chasdei Hashem, with the kindness of Hashem, I'll be travelling to Meron and Tzfat (Safed) for Lag B'Omer.

It is a tremendous merit to send a kvittel, a prayer request, to the kever of Rashbi, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, on Lag B'Omer. If you'd like us to carry your kvittal (prayer request), pidyon nefesh (soul request), we'd be glad to do so.

Of course, charity is required to open the gates of prayer. Yet we will not judge what a worthy amount is, that's between you and heaven. We will accept ANY amount, $1.00 or $100.00, whatever you think is appropriate and you can afford. 100% of the profits will benefit Torah and Yeshiva learning.

We promise, G-d willing, to personally take and read your kivttal or pidyon at:

- The Kever of the Ari HaKodesh in Tzfat (Safed)
- The Kever of Rashbi, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai in Meron on Lag B'Omer
- and possibly others if they are accessible (given the traffic of the holiday)

Whatever our limited merit may be, we will rely on the merit of the special day to open the gates of heaven to your prayers and personally daven for you at the holy site on the holy day of Lag B'Omer.



We also will be providing pictures, video, and (possibly) live coverage (if people are interested given the time difference and donations are sufficient to motivate us to haul around the necessary equipment - please say if you're interested in comments below or in the comment on your donation - noting Lag B'Omer starts right after Shabbos putting live coverage of the night not a viewing option for religious Jews in the U.S.).

Donations will be supporting Yeshiva Yesh Ma L'asot and Yeshiva Nishmat Shlomo.

Umm, like we need an intermediary to connect to יהוה . How idolotrous is this, and we laugh at the goyim asking jebus to intercede. What will it take to wake us up? Total disaster? Ah, ya!!! Chillul haShem to the max.

Hopefully, it is not too late to postpone lag b'omer celebrations one day. If not, there will again be massive chilul Shabbat with:
- hundreds of bus drivers getting ready during Shabbat to serve the masses immediately after
- hundreds of thousands of non-religious kids preparing their bonfires during Shabbat
- hundreds of thousands of non-religious kids lighting their bonfires before Shabbat is over (it gets dark before that)
- thousands of soldiers and police getting ready on Shabbat
- thousands of religious Jews getting ready on Shabbat for the trip up north.

God gave us the power to control the calender and we change many dates including the fast of Esther and yom Hazikaron and Haatzmaut. Please pray that it is not too late to postpone the hilula one day.
