Many Now Say 10 Tehillim Per Day

"Under these circumstances, we need prayer as well; we must beseech Heavenly mercy! A person who was once suffering from great pain came to HaRav Chaim, asking for advice.

Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of America Adds Members

At the time of Agudas Yisroel's founding in Katowice in 1912, it established a body known as the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah, consisting of gedolim from across Europe to stand at the helm of the movement. It has always been the hallmark of the Agudah, whether in prewar Europe or postwar America and Israel, that its policies have been guided by the words of the Moetzes. The Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of America has steered, advised, and guided American Orthodox Jewry through the challenges of Golus America for some three-quarters of a century, and continues to do so today.

The Kol Korei issued for Rosh Hashanah includes the signatures of fifteen members of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah. These include six members who have recently joined the Moetzes at the invitation of the existing members.
