For the First Time Ever For the first time ever – 40 consecutive days of prayer at Kever Rochel! Everyone's familiar with the well-known 40-consecutive-day-of-prayer segulah. But 40 days at Kever Rochel, it seems, has never been done before. Accessibility hasn't always been easy. Kever Rochel is situated in idle of the road, far from a settled area. How could anyone travel there on erev yom Tov, motzoei yom Tov, or Shabbos? Now it's possible, though no one can say how long this opportunity will remain viable. Kupat Ha'ir is taking advantage of the calm in the area right now, by the grace of Hashem, and beginning a unique tefillah program there: 40 consecutive

Th he Sources: To have a minyan of Kupat Ha'ir messengers pray for you at Kever Rachel, thesite determined by Maran Hagaon Harav Y.Z. of Brisk as a makom tefillah:

:‫בשם מרן הגרי"ז‬ ‫העיר הגרי"ז מבריסק שמוכח‬ ‫שקבר רחל הוא מקום תפילה‬ ‫שהרי כל קבורתה שם מבואר‬ ,‫כדי שיבואו ויתפללו שם בניה‬

‫א"כ מוכח שקבר רחל‬ ‫הוא מקום תפילה‬

‫ספר המקומות הקדושים‬

40

days of techinos at the grave of Rochel Imeinu.

"This is the most important tefillah that Kupat Ha'ir has conducted to date," said Maran Hagaon Harav Y. Edelstein, shlit"a, in admiration. "Forty days at Kever Rochel! I want to be there, too!" It is no simple matter.

Especially at Kever Rochel! The comment of the Brisker Rav, zt"l, that "the place determined in the Torah as a makom tefillah is Kever Rochel," is well known. After all, Chazal explain that the reason Rochel Imeinu was buried "along the road" was so that her children would be able to daven there. All the other holy gravesites were determined as places of prayer at a later point, but the very first place was Kever Rochel. Rohel Imeinu davens for those who pray at her tomb! The comment of the Vilna Gaon is well known as well. He said that since the destruction of the Beis Hamikdash, the Shechinah rests at kivrei tzaddikim, especially at Kever Rochel! We all know that Hashem finds the prayers of Rochel Imeinu so important and so pleasing, that He responds by saying, "Stop your voice from crying, for there is reward for your actions." Rochel Imeinu's prayers are favorable in Hashem's eyes – and they are heard. Her tefillos climb up to the Heavenly Throne and accomplish what no other prayer in the world can. If you think about what this means, you cannot


help but be filled with awe and excitement. The site determined in the Torah, the site from which the Shechinah never budges, and most of all… the site at which Rochel Imeinu stands and pleads on behalf of her children. And that is where messengers of Kupat Ha'ir will pray for 40 consecutive days! Forty consecutive days!

Beginning on 11 Cheshvan Hashem created this world with the segulah that 40 consecutive days of prayer have the power to open the Gates of Heaven. Now the power of this segulah will be harnessed at a site that is a segulah for heartfelt prayers to be answered: the gravesite of our mother Rochel. When the talmidei chachamim daven here "in one corner," and Rochel Imeinu pleads from the other, Hashem will surely grant the request being asked of Him. Once again, he will say to Rochel, and also to us, "Refrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears." When the segulah of 40 days of consecutive prayer combines with this holy, auspicious site, when Rochel Imeinu herself personally prays to Hashem for 40 days along with her children as they weep at her gravesite – surely all the gates of Heaven must swing wide open! With hashm's help, this awesome segulah of 40

days of consecutive prayer will begin at Kever Rochel on 11 Cheshvan, the day our forefather Yaakov buried Rochel Imeinu. He specifically chose the site of her kever so that she would pray for her children.

The Rachmastrivker Rebbe, shlit"a, davening on behalf of Kupat Ha'ir contributors at Kever Rachel on the day of her yahrtzeit, 11 Cheshvan (5769).

Grrea Gedolim will personally participate Great in this thi moving, historic prayer session. The Rac Rachmastrivker hm Rebbe, shlit"a, will, with Hashem's help help, p, o open the first tefillah on 11 Cheshvan. Maran Har Harav rav Yaakov Edelstein, shlit"a, has expressed his de desire to head the minyan during one of the next ne few days. Special prayer sessions have been n designated (ta'anis dibbur, consecutive perakim,special prakim to be recited by all pera aki members of the minyan together and more). mem mb When Whe en the prayers at Kever Rochel are being offered offer r up to Hashem, they will be accompanied by the prayers of the Gedolei Hador from their houses as well as those of the contributors from theirs – everyone from his place… If the Gedolim and tzaddikim of this generation want to be there, physically and in spirit, want their prayers to be included in this unique 40-day-at-Kever-Rochel program, how much more so do we!

The Place to Pray for Every Tzarah Yidden have always traveled to Kever Rochel to pray. Yosef Hatzaddik was the first: when he was taken by force, he wept and pleaded there with a roiling heart. Generations later, our brethren lingered at her gravesite on their way to exile. And ever since, Yidden everywhere have known that Mamme Rochel is always there for The kvittel of the Rachmastrivka them.

Rebbe, shlit"a, for the tefillos of Kupat Ha'ir 40 consecutive days at Kever Rochel.

Whenever there was a tzarah, Yidden came. Every time the


non-Jews made life difficult; every time evil vil decrees were passed; every time the publicc m or an individual needed great mercy from n Shamayim – they came to pray at the tziyun of Mamme Rochel. When a woman was having difficulty giving ng birth or a family hadn't been blessed with th children – Kever Rochel was the place to go go. o. Because Rochel Imeinu's tears on behalf of her children never dry up; her prayers neverr end. e She is concerned about everything that affe affects ects us, whether a physical matter or a spiritual al one, o whether we are there or not, whether we are healthy or, G-d forbid, sick. Her shoulders abso absorb orb every cry and sigh, every tear and expression ion n of pain.

I, Your Son, Request: Don't Stop! On one occasion when R' Chaim Shmuelevitz, zt"l, came to Kever Rochel to pray, he cried out: "Mamme Rochel, Hashem tells you, 'Min'i kolech mibechi' – Refrain your voice from crying – but I, your son, plead: Don't stop! Continue crying, keep weeping, go on pleading. Don't stop; cry for us more and more. Mamme Rochel, please, cry for us more. As long as your children suffer in the darkness of galus, as long as they endure pain and anguish all day and all night – don't stop! Keep crying!" Now, for 40 consecutive days, we will continue that cry. Mamme Rochel, don't stop! For 40 days, we will cry and plead at Mamme Rochel's gravesite. And the gates of heaven will open, with Hashem's help. They've just got to. For many people, visiting Kever Rochel is a rare privilege, something that can be done once every few years – if at all. Forty days at Kever Rachel is something that seems

Maran Hagaon Harav Chaim Kanievski, shlit"a, praying on behalf of contributors to Kupat Ha'ir at the Kosel Hama'aravi on Chol Hamoed Sukkos 5769

Maran Hagaon Harav Chaim Kanievski, shlit"a: "Kever Rochel is the preferred and auspicious makom tefillah." A group of people wanted to organize a minyan to recite the entire sefer Tehillim on behalf of a sick person, and they deliberated where to do it: at the kever of Rabi Shimon bar Yochai or at Kever Rochel. When they consulted with Harav Kanievsky, shlit"a, he told them that it was certainly preferable to organize a tefilah at Kever Rochel, which was designated as an auspicious makom tefilah for the Jewish People.

which is forbidden on Shabbos.)

But now it's really possible! Now it's possible to merit having our names prayed for there, at the holy tziyun, for 40 consecutive days. Now it's possible to merit the combination of the 40-day-segulah, prayer at Kever Rochel and the recitation of Tehillim at her gravesite. Now it's possible!

Kupat Ha’ir’s messenger at Kever Rachel, you from your home, and Rochel Imeinu from there … with Hashem’s help, words will fail to describe the greatness of the yeshuos!

Crying Out to Hashem With Hashem’s help, Kupat Ha’ir’s messengers will pray every day, including Friday and motzoei Shabbos. In accordance with instructions from Maran R’ Yaakov Edelstein, shlit”a, they will recite the fourth and fifth sefarim of Tehillim, chapter by chapter, together, while observing a ta’anis dibbur. They will not pause between perakim. Upon completing Tehillim, they will pray for contributors slowly and in detail. (The rabbanim have determined that motzoei Shabbos until chatzos is considered as Shabbos for this purpose and is counted as a regular day. In fact, it even has an advantage over Shabbos, for it is permissible to cry and plead in prayer,

~~~ R’ Chaim Shmuelevitz, zt”l, once visited the tomb of Rochel Imeinu. As he entered, he heard muffled sobs. A woman was standing on the woman’s side but her sobs were clearly audible on the men’s side. “Mamme Rochel,” the woman wept. “You said, ‘If I don’t have [children], let me die.’ Do you remember? You had it so hard! Surely you understand what I’m going through. You must know, better than anyone else, the pain of waiting and waiting followed by crushing disappointment…” Her sobs made it difficult to hear every word, but she repeated them over and over again amidst tears and sighs. Everyone present remained silent. It was impossible

For many people, visiting Kever Rochel is a rare privilege, something that can be done once every few years – if at all. Forty days at Kever Rachel is something that seems inconceivable. But now it's really possible! Now it's possible to merit having our names prayed for there, at the holy tziyun, for 40 consecutive days. Now it's possible to merit the combination of the 40-day-segulah, prayer at Kever Rochel and the recitation of Tehillim at her gravesite. Now it's possible!

T hat eevening vening was tthe he llast ast off the m month during eevening veningg o onth d uring which h it was permissible to bless the new moon, but the moon had not made its appearance. Three heads looked up hopefully; three pairs of eyes stared at the cloudy sky. The moon was nowhere to be seen. Only someone who has been in a similar situation, where a precious mitzvah is about to slip through his hands, leaving a terrible feeling of emptiness behind – can understand how these men felt. "It isn't visible," one of them said, despair creeping into his voice. "There's no sign of it at all," agreed the second, close to tears. "But it must be visible in Yericho!" the third man spoke up suddenly, his voice enthusiastic. "When the moon isn't visible in Yerushalayim, it can bee seen in Yericho! Tried and true!" They looked at him helplessly. It was nearly midnight. How might they get from Zichron Moshe to Yericho? The intifada was at its height at the time and even the term "the Jericho highway" was enough to send shivers up one's spine? "I'm taking a taxi. We'll travel through Jewish settlements. You're welcome to join me if you'd like," the third man said. His friends took him up on the offer.

The taxi glided through the darkened streets, each of its occupants preoccupied with his own thoughts. All three kept their eyes on the sky. If the moon were to put in an appearance along the way, perhaps they'd be able to stop and recite kiddush levanah from the road. "Yericho," the driver announced. He had been informed of the purpose of the trip and he, too, had glanced at the sky every few minutes, but he'd seen no sign of the moon. They stepped out of the car near an Israeli military post. It would be safer to stay near armed soldiers. The soldiers watched in surprise as three bearded men jumped out of the taxi and stared intently at the sky. "Lost something? A meteor, maybe? A UFO?" the soldier on duty asked jokingly. "Yes. We've lost the moon," one of them replied. "Today is the last day this month that it is permissible to bless the moon, did you know that?" Another few soldiers drew near. They, too, heard the bearded men's explanation. Some of them empathized; some shrugged; some made circular motions near their temples. All of them glanced up at the sky in search of a clear spot in


between the clouds, in vain. "Maybe it's visible in Chevron," a religious soldier spoke up suddenly. "I remember that when I served near Me'aras Hamachpeilah, there were those

who said that the moon never his from the inhabitants of Chevron." The three of them hung on to his every word. "Is there some way you can contact soldiers in Chevron?" one of them asked. "Can you find out if the moon is visible there now?" "Yes, I can do that," the religious soldier replied. He made the contact and soon reported: The moon is visible in the sky in Chevron! The three men hurried back to the waiting taxi as the soldiers waved goodbye and wished them success. In Chevron, the moon shone brightly in the sky. The men recited the blessing aloud with great

feeling. They were filled with excitement. They had very nearly given up but in the end, they had merited to recite the blessing. On the way home, they passed Kever Rochel. The atmosphere in the car was exalted, charged with spirituality. "There are a few more hours left until morning," the third man, always the initiator, declared. "And

you're still waiting for a good besurah," he went on, clapping the first man on the shoulder. Still waiting! He'd been waiting for fifteen years! "Let's go into Mamme Rochel and rend the very heavens," the third man said determinedly. They paid the taxi driver and sent him on his way before entering the silent cave housing the tomb. Only Mamme Rochel was there, as she is always, praying for her children behind the soft velvet paroches. "Let's recite the entire sefer Tehillim," the thrd man whispered. "It is written that Tehillim recited at the grave of Rochel Imeinu does not go unanswered!" The atmosphere was charged with


emotion em mot and holiness.

With only the three of sso om tthem hem present, they felt free to be their true selves. you know better than anyone else how ""Mamme, Maam m bad b ad tthe pain is," the avreich sobbed. His friends' eeyes yes streamed with tears as well. "He, too, has been waiting so long. He, too, is davening the way you once did. His wife, too, is desperately hoping for a yeshuah." The room was awash in tears. There was something very powerful about the fact hat they were only three, that the taxi haddriven off and they were cut off from the rest of the world, that it was a dark night, that Rochel Imeinu's kever is situated along the road, far from any settled area. It was just them, Rochel Imeinu and the Ribono shel Olam. They recited the entire sefer Tehillim there, word by word, with deep emotion. Now and again, they paused to interject with a few heartfelt, pleading words of their own. Morning found them exhausted, pale and redeyed. They completed Tehillim and went to look for transportation to Yerushalayim, where they might daven Shacharis. None of them said a word to the others. They were all speechless once again approximately one year later, when, on 11 Cheshvan – precisely on 11 Cheshvan – the avreich became an ecstatic father.

"Kupat Ha'ir is a great thing," the Rebbe said. "Keep up all your activities… keep it up. You're doing very great things." The Rebbe had never said anything like this

before. It sounded almost like a tzava'ah. Could anyone have dreamed that he, was, in fact issuing a tzava'ah? That he was talking about what should be done even after he would no longer be here? No, such a thought never dawned on anyone.

A Spine-Tingling Occasion Reb Yaakov stood near the tziyun, a sheaf of Kupat Ha’ir papers in his hand. The members of his entourage stood around, deeply under the spell of the occasion they were attending. They had recited chapters of Tehillim with great emotion, together, out loud, in a manner reminiscent of Ne’ilah. The air was charged with emotion. Rachel Imeinu was crying on behalf of her children, evoking Hashem’s mercy. The papers in Reb Yaakov’s hands rustled, reminding everyone of their existence. The papers bore the long, long list of contributors to Kupat Ha’ir, of people in need of a yeshuah. Reb Yaakov was deeply engrossed in the list, reciting the names aloud and pleading on their behalf. Off to the side stood an avreich. He wasn’t part of the group; he had nothing to do with the prayer session. He stood there and watched the scene unfolding, his emotion clearly evident on his face.

feeling that his yeshuah could stem from here. Reb Yaakov’s eyes brimmed with compassion as he looked at the young man. Six years… He’d come to Kever Rochel to arouse her pity. After all, Rochel, too, had suffered the same type of distress. She, too, had waited years for zera shel kayama. The avreich standing in front of him, Reb Yaakov knew, had left his “other half” at home, or perhaps she was on the other side of the mechitzah. How many tears had they spilled; how many doctors had they seen; how much effort had thy invested? Reb Yaakov knew, and his heart bled. “But I’m here as a messenger of Kupat Ha’ir,” Reb Yaakov said gently. “I’m not here for myself, nor have I come on my own to daven for others. I’m herefor Kupat Ha’ir. It’s for contributors to this worthy organization that I’m praying.”

“I Want To Be A Part of This, Too.”

It was hard to say no. Hashem is all-powerful; He could surely help another Jew in pain. But Reb Yaakov felt it wouldn’t be right. He had been sent to Kever Rochel on a mission and it was wrong to deviate from that mission.

“Please can the Rav daven for me, too,” he whispered, his voice cracking. “I’ve been married for six years now and we still haven’t been blessed with children. The pain is unbearable.” Tears flowed from the young man’s eyes. His eyes burned with intense desire. He, too, wanted his name on the list; he, too, wanted to be prayed for at this spine-tingling occasion. He had a powerful

The avreich was taken aback. He didn’t know what to do. He wanted so badly – he longed, he yearned – to have his name on that list. If he had been a woman, he’d have burst into tears on the spot. He bit his lip helplessly. What could he do if he hadn’t contributed to Kupat Ha’ir? Reb Yaakov wouldn’t come to Kever Rochel again especially for him. Who knew if such a spine-tingling

Finally, unable to restrain himself any longer, he approached Reb Yaakov.


occasion would ever take place again? Was he really going to lose this rare opportunity because he hadn’t contributed? “I’ll contribute the full amount to Kupat Ha’ir,” he said finally, unsure if that was still an option. “I give you my word. I’ll even call right now and ask if my name can be added to the list.” He was weeping openly. Reb Yaakov agreed.

There is a Solution If he was going to contribute the full sum, there really was no difference between his name and any other on the list. Reb Yaakov asked the young man for his name and that of his mother. He added the names to those onhis list. The avreich sobbed openly as the occasion spread its cloak to include him as well. He, too, had a part in this unique occasion. He, too, was a member of the group of mispalelim. He, too, was there, pouring his heart out in prayer. From time to time, he stole a glance at Reb Yaakov. He knew that Mamme Rochel was beseeching Hashem and he knew, he just knew, that the gates of Shamayim were opening wide.

A Yeshuah! Nine months and one week later, the avreich was a father. The gates of Shamayim had indeed opened wide. Mamme Rochel had cried out and the yeshuah had come! “I’ve heard about many people who had a yeshuah in the merit of the tefillos,” Reb Yaakov said at a different occasion. There’s no official list of the people who contributed and what happened in the end. But we know that the Gates of Tears are never locked, that tearful prayer sessions cause a huge tumult in Shamayim and that miracles happen all the time. Kupat Ha’ir has the merit of serving as a channel for yeshuos. Contributors to Kupat Ha’ir have the merit of seeing yeshuos in these areas.
