    While I think we can all fully support this initiative as well as the various tehillim and learning initiatives, it might be worthwhile to consider that yesterday, as a fast day (the Tenth of Tevet), was a day already set aside as a day of serious introspection (i.e. fasting without meaningful introspection does not due the day justice). While my teachers always taught that we can not pretend to understand the way the master of the universe runs the world, they also taught that in an eit tzarah (time of trouble) we should each look at the totality of our priorities. That might mean a greater attention to prayer and/or political action and/or charity and/or Torah study and/or shmirat halashon….- we each need to define our own game plan.

    May we each “raise our games” to a higher level and pray that in the merit of our increased efforts the master of the universe protect us all, especially our brothers and sisters in Israel and speedily bring our physical and spiritual exile to an end.

    “we each need to define our own game plan”.
    GOOD IDEA, but do we??

    At an ‘as tzara’, a unified front and dedicated tefillos for messengers of gd are needed besides the personal game plan.

    cvmay,
    I suppose it is a matter of how much is devoted to each.If the only change one makes in ones life is to add some names to a tehillim list, I’m not sure how much that adds when compared to volunteering to work with the victims of terror (as an example). I also note that the unified front argument doesn’t cut both ways (isee today’s rally at the Israeli consulate in NY and hamevin yavin)
