A project in memory of the young bochur Shmuel Karnowsky OBM, who passed away recently at the young age of 15, will continue this Shabbos.
Shmuel’s parents, Osher and Rivka Karnowsky, wanted to do something special to honor the memory of their son, who was a straight-alef student and a diligent bochur who was beloved by his peers.
“We all know the great power of reciting words of Tehillim, and the many brochos which come from it, especially when it comes to children,” said Rabbi Moshe Pinson, President of Bais Shmuel Chabad in Crown Heights.
To encourage children to recite Tehillim on Shabbos Mevorchim, every Shabbos Mevorchim for the next year, all children are invited to attend for the reciting of Tehillim at Bais Shmuel Chabad in Crown Heights.
Every boy and girl who comes to Tehillim this Shabbos, Shabbos Mevorchim Elul, by 9 am sharp will receive a special gift of $15 cash after Shabbos. (Children must be accompanied by an adult.)
Part of Hayom Yom for 24, Iyar: With the advent of Mashiach, there will be revealed the superior quality of the traits of simplicity and wholeheartedness found in the Avoda of simple folk who Daven and recite Tehillim with simple sincerity.
Hayon Yom 29, Cheshvan: We cannot adequately describe the great merit of those who participate in the sacred Avoda of saying Tehillim with a Minyan, and the great pleasure this Avoda causes On High, as discussed in sacred texts and in very tiny part in Kuntres Takanat Amirat Tehillim B’rabim How fortunate are you Israel, and for this may you all be blessed with proper health and with super-abundant livelihood – you, your wives, your sons and your daughters (G-d grant them eternal life.) In your merit may all the congregation of Israel in your communities be helped (among all our Jewish brethren) in all they need, materially and spiritually.
Hayom Yom 24, Shevat: If you only knew – The Tzemach Tzedek said – the power of verses of Tehillim and their effect in the highest Heavens, you would recite them constantly. Know that the chapters of Tehillim shatter all barriers, they ascend higher and still higher with no interference; they prostrate themselves in supplication before the Master of all worlds, and they effect and accomplish with kindness and compassion.
Hayom Yom 25, Shevat: Studying a Parsha of Chumash with Rashi every day (Sunday until Sheini, Monday until Shlishi, etc.), saying Tehillim every day and the entire Tehillim on Shabbat m’varchim – be scrupulous about all of these. It is crucial for you, for your children and your children’s children.
