Thefirstresponsecame,andthenanother,andanother,and another. The gabbai could not believe what had happened. It was as if the elderly gedolim had made up among themselves what to reply... as if it was a well-known, self-understood fact. As if there was nothing more obvious or simple... What did they say? Amazing!ThegedoleiYisrael,eachfromhisownperspective,allheldthesame response! What does that tell us? What should it tell us?

The Full Story

Of Hagaon Harav Kanievsky’s Trip to the Kosel as told by his son,

Hagaon Harav Y.S. Kanievsky, shlit”a At first, it was agreed that my father would not travel to the Kosel. For various reasons, it was urgent that we return immediately after the bris. During the trip, I told my father about Kupat Ha’ir’s request that he daven for the contributors at the Kosel Hama’aravi. My father, shlit”a, did not reply. After the bris, my father said, “Nu... we spoke about the Kosel Hama’aravi. Let’s go to the Kosel.” My feeling was that my father considered it obvious that if Kupat Ha’ir had made a request, it should be honored immediately. As soon as we arrived at the Kosel, my father asked me for the list of contributors to Kupat Ha’ir. He concentrated upon them with great intensity and immersed himself in heartfelt prayer. Crowds gathered as my father continued to pray for the contributors. Only later did he accept kvitlach and lists from bystanders.

I can testify that the main part of his tefilla at the Kosel was for the contributors of Kupat Ha’ir to be helped in whatever area they had requested.
