Save Your Tehilim - There are many who need it more

December 18th 2003- The Disengagement Plan was first officially announced by Ariel Sharon in a speech at the Herzliya Conference.

December 18th 2005 - Ariel Sharon suffered what was described as a mild stroke which doctors and his spokesmen assured the public he would quickly recover from.

Save your Tehilim. There are many who need it more. See here and here

Poverty is a critical situation in Israel and as was stated on Israel's Channel 10, any civilian in Sharon's condition would not have even been treated as his situation would have been considered hopeless. If we're to say Tehilim for someone perhaps it should be those children who don't have the best surgeons in the country laboring constantly to save their lives but come from low income families and are barely getting through this crisis and coping with the worst of socialized medicine and medical apathy, rather than a corrupt millionaire being eulogized even before death, all the more hypocritically so by those who had always hated him.

For anyone who wants to help the seriously ill, take a look at Zichron Menachem which helps the families of children with cancer. If you feel teary eyed about a corrupt 77 year old millionaire who abused his body, ignored doctor's orders and slashed social services, go the page above for some context in rachmanut.

Interesting coincidence. Was the announcement December 18, 2004? If it was then the Hebrew date was the 6 of Tevet wich is tomorrow.

I checked and it was in 2003. The Hebrew date was 23 of Kislev, December 24, 2005.

Thank you sultan, you are a rare voice of reason and genuine heart felt concern in our mad and sick world.

Remember that we said a prayer for people like sharon during roman times, it was incorperated in the shemoneh esrie as the 12th blessing.

"for the slanderers let there be no hope; and may all wickedness perish in an instant; and mahy all your enemies be cut down speedily. May you speedily uproot, smash, cast down, and humble the wanton sinners - speedily in our days. Blessed are You, Hashem, who breaks enemies and humbles wanton sinners."

People in need of prayer can also call the Tehilim Hotline toll free at 1-888-448-3445 or go to their website at

You can request prayers either by calling or online.

If anyone wants to pray tehilim themselves, I would recite pslams 16, 32, 41, 42, 59, 77, 90, 105, 137, and 150. They can be recited for any situation that requires prayer.

Sultan, thank you again for reminding us of those who are truly in need of prayer and Hashem's mercy.

Shabbat Shalom
