“The Rebbe often quoted the famous posuk from Tehillim: ‘מִפִּי עוֹלְלִים וְיוֹנְקִים—from the mouths of children Hashem establishes the strength to destroy the enemy,’” says Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, vice-chairman of Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch. In light of recent tragedies in Eretz Yisrael, children need to be encouraged now more than ever to say Tehillim on Shabbos Mevorchim.
This month’s target is 70,000 kapitelach, to be reached through a collective effort of 50 Lubavitch schools and yaldei hashluchim around the world. Pivotal steps are being taken to ensure that every child completes their task.
Tzivos Hashem Headquarters released a new video tutorial that clearly explains how the Shabbos Mevorchim Tehillim Campaign works. A number of schools have established competitions to encourage chayolim to fulfill their quotas, including organizing Shabbos morning Tehillim gatherings.
MyShliach, Tzivos Hashem’s division for yaldei hashluchim as taken their own strides to this end. “We’ve created a Whatsapp group to communicate with our parents,” announced Rabbi Mendy Shanowitz, director of the organization. “With this simple tutorial sent directly to their smartphones, they can grasp the system in less than three minutes.”
May the thousands of kapitelach said by all these chayolim pierce the heavens, stopping the terrible tragedies in Eretz Yisroel and bringing the ultimate peace with the Geula ho’amitis ve’hashleima now.
