Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

(Courtesy of Kollel Chatzos) Sometimes, the most painful sound is silence.

When the phones have stopped ringing because shadchanim have stopped calling.

When the house remains quiet, as the adult children tiptoe about because there are no grandchildren to disrupt the stale monotony.

When the heart seems soundless as dreams and wishes seem to have become muted by the passage of time.

It’s about time to shatter that silence.

As we approach the yahrtzeit of Rabbi Yonasan ben Uziel, 26 Sivan, the famed tana whose holiness fired up the entire world with Torah and light, we hear a whisper—of hope, of rachamim, of yeshua.

After all, generations upon generations of Yidden have been zoche to find their zivugim after davening at Rabbi Yonasan ben Uziel’s kever in Amuka.

And this year, Kollel Chatzos has been nominated to serve as shluchei tzibur for the many broken-hearted older singles who are desperately waiting for a shidduch.

Kollel representatives will learn all night and then daven at Amuka in their zechus on Friday night and Motzei Shabbos of 26 Sivan. And they will continue to storm shaarei Shamayim for the rest of the year—until the silence is shattered and the kol sasson fills the air.

When people are waiting—still. When things are quiet—and still.

It takes a little bit to listen and hear an invitation for more Torah, more tefillah—and a yeshua.
