Davening on behalf of shidduch-seekers (EMAIL I RECEIVED)

Can you think of at least one person who needs a shidduch?
If you answered yes, you should continue to read this.

Last year thousands joined from across the world to help their fellow Jew…

From Brooklyn to Belgium, Shanghai to Spain, Melbourne to Montreal, Los Angeles to London, Miami to Moscow, Argentina to Austria, Johannesburg to Jerusalem and the list goes on and on…

This year you can do the same!

We urge you to join us in what we hope will be even bigger and better than last year. Purim has a koach of tefillah like no other day in the Jewish calendar- even our Day of Judgment is called Yom HaKippurim (LIKE Purim). We cannot fathom the power of each and everyone of our tefillos and it is with this in mind that we urge you to join us in achdus this Purim to possibly make a difference in the lives of those you love.

This Purim we are once again trying, as members of Klal Yisroel, to help one another find their b'sheret, one perek of Tehillim at a time. We are trying to complete Sefer Tehillim as many times as possible as a z'chus for shidduchim for all those in need. On Purim day at 10:00am EST, we ask that all people recite one perek of Tehillim and have in mind the name that you are davening for. It can be yourself, your sibling, a friend, classmate, co-worker, WHOEVER. The idea is that you're focusing on that person. At 10:00am we are going to read off all the names we have compiled and finish Sefer Tehillim. Our hope is that by davening for one another Hakodosh Baruch Hu will see our efforts and in turn answer our tefillos b'shah tova, b'karov.


So what is it that you have to do exactly?

1. E-mail Purim5767@Yahoo.com with the Hebrew name ( e.g. person's name, son (ben)/daughter (bas) of, mother's name- for example: Yitzchok ben Sara) of the person you are davening for. For each name you submit to us we request you say a perek of Tehillim accordingly (that's a perek per name you submit). We choose your perek and we will e-mail you back what your perek is (Please note that no one person will be assigned perek 119- it has been divided into 4 sections).

2. At 10:00am E.S.T. on Purim Day, March 4, 2007/ 14 Adar 5767 say the perek/perakim you've been assigned. (Please note that if we have enough people in Yerushalyim interested in saying a separate Sefer on Shushan Purim we will try and arrange it accordingly)

3. Send this E-mail to all those you know!


IMPORTANT-PLEASE NOTE:
THURSDAY MARCH 1, 2007 (11 Adar 5767) IS THE LAST DAY TO SUBMIT ANY NAMES! ALL ASSIGNED PERAKIM WILL IY"H BE E-MAILED OUT ON FRIDAY MARCH 2, 2007 (BLI NEDER) -THEREFORE YOU MUST CHECK YOUR E-MAIL! PLEASE DO NOT E-MAIL US MORE THAN ONCE WITH THE SAME NAME OR YOU WILL BE ASSIGNED THE AMOUNT OF PERAKIM FOR THE AMOUNT OF TIMES YOU E-MAILED US. DUE TO AN OVERWHELMING RESPONSE, WE ASK THAT YOU KEEP YOUR E-MAILS TO THE ABOVE GUIDELINES. WE APOLOGIZE BEFOREHAND TO ANYONE WHO E-MAILS US AFTER THE DEADLINE.

TIZKU L'MITZVOS!
MAY ALL YOUR TEFILLOS BE ANSWERED L'TOVA!!
WISHING YOU ALL A FREILICHEN PURIM!

Two points for action over talking. (Don't mind the questionable qualification of tehillim-saying as "action".)
