The annual Lev L'Achim rally was held on Monday 26 Nisan in
Bnei Brak. Thousands came to hear maranan verabonon
speak at the event which lasted more than six hours from
three in the afternoon. This even brings together thousands
of activists from all over the country.
Maran HaRav Y. S. Eliashiv sent a letter which was read to
the gathering. This letter appears here in translation:
Bs"d, 26 Nisan 5760
To the participants in the gathering of the activists of the
Lev L'Achim organization, headed by the rabbonim hageonim
May those who have assembled lesheim Shomayim in order
to devise ways to draw their fellow Jews closer to Torah and
mitzvos and to save them from straying, be blessed
from the Source of blessings.
Fortunate are they, and fortunate is the portion of the
members and volunteers of the Pe'ilim Lev L'Achim
organization, who have accomplished wonders in their outreach
work in general, in the registration of students to Torah
institutions in particular, with much skill and with the
utmost loyalty. The blessing they have seen in their efforts
to draw the distant closer to Torah have far exceeded their
expectations, and they have brought many many Jewish children
to Torah institutions.
As the registration of the forthcoming school year
approaches, these activities must be expanded with added
momentum, and the efforts to save Jewish souls from straying
must be increased. It is of the utmost urgency for everyone
participate in this sacred effort and to make maximal efforts
to register children in institutions where they will be
inculcated with emunah and yiras Shomayim.
May it be Hashem's will that all those who are involved in
such deeds be strengthened in their sacred labor, and blessed
from the Source of blessings. May their Torah be ever
preserved, and their labor, which is a meleches
Shomayim, be blessed.
With the Blessing of the Torah,
Yosef Sholom Eliashiv
