As Russian forces launch an all-out invasion of Ukraine, Shluchim to Ukraine are calling for the public to increase in Torah, tefilla, and tzedaka for the safety and security of our brethren in Ukraine.
The shluchim are specifically requesting from Chabad Chassidim worldwide to dedicate this week’s Shabbos Mevarchim Tehillim for the safety of the shluchim and their families.
Chabad Rabbonim in the United States and Eretz Yisroel have also called on the public to recite extra Tehillim and give additional tzedaka for the safety of Ukrainian Jewry.
“In light of the ongoing state war in the world, which is posing a grave danger to our fellow Yidden who are in the battle zones,” Beis Din Rabbonei Chabad of Eretz Yisroel wrote, “we are calling on every person to add after the daily Tehillim the chapters 20, 22, 69, 120, 150, as well as 81 till 90.”
The Rabbonim also asked that each individual add in giving Tzedakah, to increase their mivtzoim activities, strengthen learning the daily Rambam, and inyonei geula umoshiach.
The letter was signed by Harav Yitzchok Yehuda Yaroslavsky (Kiryat Malachi), Harav Avrohom Michoel Halperin (Yerushalayim), Harav Menachem Mendel Gluckowsky (Rechovot), Harav Yochanan Gurary (Cholon), Harav Yosef Hecht (Eilat), Harav Moshe Havlin (Kiryat Gat) and Harav Yisroel Hendel (Migdal Haemek).
