Praying for World Peace in Jerusalem

Rav Dov Singer and Yeshivat Makor Chaim hosted over 2,000 people at Jerusalem’s “First Station” for their monthly festive Rosh Chodesh tefillah. Every Rosh Chodesh and Chol Hamoed, Makor Chaim’s “Spiritual Renewal Outreach Center” hosts a musical festive prayer and study experience in different places in Israel and sometimes even overseas.

Makor Chaim’s outreach programs reach well over 10,000 people annually and were awarded the president’s “Hope for Israel” Education Prize for their “Commitment and extensive efforts to strengthen the partnership and bonding between the different sectors of Israeli society.”

This month’s event was dedicated to world peace and the safety of the Jewish community in Ukraine, the cradle of the Chasidic movement.

Just before the moving, foot-stomping Hallel service led by Aharon Razael, Rabbi Singer said “If we really want peace, we need to turn to the true ‘PeaceMaker’ in Heaven—Oseh Shalom B’mromov. We appeal to all world leaders: Peace conferences should really be prayer conferences! We are here praying in Jerusalem’s ‘First Station,’ but really we are getting closer to the ‘Final Station’ and we pray that the special power of the month of Adar ‘V’nahafoch Hu’ will convert war into peace for all mankind.”

Those planning to visit Israel over the Passover holiday should make a point of joining Makor Chaim’s festive service to be held in Jerusalem’s Great Synagogue on Chol Hamoed, Thursday morning, April 21st, to be led by the renowned Chasidic music superstar Yitzchak Meir.
