If you can't fight, pray tehillim!

the light of 5 Kislev 5779

Tehilim Yahad is a website people from all over the world can gather to pray tehilim (psalms) together for whatever purpose is given. Here is the specific page to pray for the success and protection for Am Yisrael and the security forces, in case you want to pray with us here in Israel (it's in Hebrew, but you can change the language to any of the major languages, including English). UPDATE: instructions are in the comments below.

I grouped sets of Tehilim here for different aspects of war, especially for the Jewish soldiers who are physically involved, doing the great mitzvah of defending the Jewish country (regardless of how one individually feels about it).

Tizku l' mitzvoth! May haShem save us and all Israel, all over the world in your merit, joined with ours.

 And below is some motivation to pray! More links can be added in the comments below.

200 Hamas rockets strike Israel

Some of the story behind what's happening here - BBC - read with caution. As usual they blame us, whether openly or subtly. It's the badly-played opera again.

Arutz 7- IDF given green light in GazaIDF strikes Gaza terror targets

Rocket attacks are up to 400 - R' Lazer Brody

Something else we can bring to HQB"H: While Hamas engages us in war, "Under the guise of 'agricultural assistance,' the Palestinian Authority is taking over Area C, with the help of massive European financial support and in violation of the law." Read and/or download this Regavim PDF for more. Regavim holds our government accountable for enforcing laws regarding our land. But now we are besieged on both sides.

Here we go... of course we must pray for the complete redemption!!!

UPDATE 14/11/2018: Last night R' Lazer summed up what I'd like to call Lessons Learned After the Ceasefire (it's really called Iron Dome, Ceasefire: There's no one but Hashem):

Despite everything, Hashem still did tremendous miracles. 450 missiles fell, there was all kinds of chaos and property damage, yet only one person was killed - not even an Israeli - but a worker from the PA village of Halhoul illegally sleeping over in Ashkelon. There were no Jewish Israeli fatalities!

Hashem is giving us another chance to learn emuna and do teshuva. Once we do, we're home free. But, if people simply use the respite to go back to their sidewalk cafes, then the next round of hostilities will be even worse. What's more, if Iron Dome's success against Gaza was a mere 27% (flunking Fall Semester midterms against Gaza, 2018), what will it be against Hizbollah, whose firepower is twenty times that of Gaza?
"Rabbi Rambo" should know.

Disclaimer: I'm not a Breslever myself, and don't plan to become one. They don't own emuna and teshuva; they just promote these Jewish concepts with everything they have!

Thank you so much.

I have been thinking about people joining to pray for all that you have mentioned..

Israel, the IDF, and in general for people yearning for peace and praying that Hashem get rid of those that seek to harm those that do not believe like them..
Mat Gd in His compassion and mercy and love for Am Israel, protect the IDF who are fighting for the saftety of their people in geneeral,hence in a miraculous way, (my belief) the saftey of this world .. Amen.

Hashem bless you and yours.. and Am Israel and also all good peoples of the world, regardless of who and what they believe.. Amen.

I follow Hashem... period.

One question, when i click 'English' for reading Tehilim, it shows as transliterationm.
I do not speak Hebrew... so i can still try to read it? or is there a way to read the chapter in English itself...

Sorry for troubling you.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you, Anon, for your kindness and willingness to participate in this important task.

To change everything to English except the Tehilim, on the page, go to the gear at the top right-hand corner and click on the arrow on the right-hand side of the graphic. A list of languages will appear. Press English (second one down, right under Hebrew עברית).

Then, to read the transliteration, scroll down a little bit to where you will find the chapter number. You will see below it two buttons to decrease and increase the font size respectively, and the transliterate button next to them. Click that and do the best you can. HaShem appreciates when we all do our best. If you have a Psalms or a Tanach with Psalms, you can turn the page to the English translation of the one you're reading.

We learn that reading Tehilim in Hebrew makes the prayer reach Shamayim faster. And whatever you can do will accrue a lot of merit on our collective behalf!

Thank you so much, Kala. It gives me an opportunity to say: I'm so glad to have you on the team! Keep up the good work.

UPDATE: Israellycool:If you condemned Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, but not rockets at Israel, you are a hypocrite.

From R' Lazer Brody: Even during the barrages, we must never forget how much haShem loves the Jews!
