THE GATES ARE OPEN

SHAAREI RACHAMIM

While the time between Pesach and Shavuos is like a whole long Chol Hamoed*,
and during this time there is more rachamim even than from Elul to Yom Kippur,
BETWEEN 14 IYAR and 21 IYAR is the time of greatest rachamim**,
and we can daven (pray) and it's like Neilah,
THE GATES ARE OPEN TO OUR TEFILLOS.

Starting tonite also is the Yahrzeit of Rabbi Meir Baal Hanes
beginning this time of great rachamim. A little tzedaka in this pushka
in Rabbi Meir's merit would be most fitting to encourage a return,
a return of our pure neshomas back to Hashem, Av HaRachamim.

(AND a return HOME to our homeland and the homeland of our Avos,
which we are also reading each Shabbos during this time of rachamim.
So interesting how all these things dovetail).

May all our Tefillos be answered L'Tov

*Bnei Yissachar
**Zohar (of Rebbe Shimon Bar Yochai - Lag BaOmer is in the middle of this special time)
