Badatz of Crown Heights has encouraged setting Monday as a Yom Tefillah with added Tehillim and to make special kinnusim in the schools.
In a letter released before Shabbos, the Rabbonim of the Badatz, Harav Avrohom Osdoba and Harav Yosef Braun write:
“In recent years, people have risen up to sabotage the vineyards in the way our sons and daughters are to be educated.
Recently they have increased to endanger our future and the Torah way of life, working in cohort with various governing bodies plotting a terrible decree to change the structure of the pure education of our sons and daughters, if these regulations would become law, the Government would be the ones empowered to decide which Yiddish schools we are entitled to choose for our children!
Therefore, we have come to propose to establish a “day of prayer” (in reciting Psalms 121, 130, 142 and 150) as well as a “gathering of Torah, Teffilah and Tzedaka”, “as one man with one heart”, in all educational institutions on Monday On the eve of Rosh Chodesh Sivan, and it would be commendable that others will see and do as well.”
Harav Osdoba and Harav Braun conclude the letter with a postscript:
“Here is the place to arouse also about the necessity of striving in the way of nature “hishtadlus“, to inform the government that only in the way of our fathers will we go, to educate our sons and daughters in the way of the Torah.
