Gedolei Yisroel who spoke at the rally
The massive historic rally gathered together an assemblage of some one hundred thousand women and girls from the higher grades of seminaries throughout the country under the watchword of "Toras Imecha - the Teachings of the Mother" which took place this past Monday evening. It encompassed messages from our Torah leaders, headed by the Rosh Yeshiva, HaRav Gershon Edelstein, which were relayed live from a special gathering especially organized from his home.
It was headed as well by HaRav Dov Lando, HaRav Moshe Hillel Hirsch, HaRav Dovid Cohen and the Admorim of Vishnitz and Modzitz. HaRav Masoud Ben Shimon related the blessings of HaRav Shimon Baadani. All of these gedolim delivered heartfelt addresses calling for fortification of the Jewish home and embracing paths of salvation and refuge from the ravages of modern technology coupled by a call to purify the camp and strengthen it with the advent of the upcoming Yomim Noraim.
Tens of thousands of women rallied to the call of gedolei Yisroel from all the communities and camps which urged Jewish women to consolidate at a historic rally which would be a turning point in strengthening all Jewish homes in vigil against all harmful influences. The Rosh Yeshiva's cry to Jewish women was "so that the more participants to this rally, the greater will be its impact on the public as a whole."
And indeed, it resulted in a mighty wave of avid anticipation for the event. This was accentuated by the letter of HaRav Lando and HaRav Moshe Hillel which stated, "The major rally of 'Toras Imecha' applies to every home in matters touching upon the very foundation of our existence and obligates each and every one as a holy requirement to attend."
It aroused much waves of anticipation, especially when coupled with the blessings of the Admorim: the Belzer Rebbe, the Tzanzer Rebbe and the Slonimer Rebbe, whose exhortations of the importance of the rally and their blessings thereof, were publicized throughout the Diaspora, rousing the hearts of the entire public of women from all the circles of Torah-true Jewry to unite as one for the massive rally of solid commitments and resolutions to strengthen the walls of our camp in preserving our holy Jewish values.
