Clevelander Tefillin Campaign

Rabbi Tal Zwecker of Ramat Beit Shemesh requested that I post the following message:

"The Clevelander Rebbe Shlit"a of Ra'anana Israel has asked all Jews worldwide to help in organizing a campaign to help the matzav in Eretz Yisroel by asking all Jews to ask even one fellow Jew who is not yet observant to wear Tefillin and recite the Shema so that the verse "VeRau Kol Amei HaAretz ki Shem Hashem nikra Alecha veYiru mimeka - And all the nations of the world shall see Hashem's name upon you and fear you" shall be fulfilled as the Gemara Brachos teaches that this refers to the Tefillin shel Rosh. May this extra mitzvah observance help the fear of Hashem's people to overcome our enemies and help us defeat them speedily. Amen!"

According to YNet some soldiers left their tefillin in Lebanon after the short incursion.

It worked in the Six Day War (The Lubavitcher Rebbefirst initiated the tefillin campaign then) let it work now!

The rebbe uses the tallis on his head but not on the tefilin like say the shulkhan aruch and not like the kabbalah..very interesting point...
