A Positive Response

Ariel Sharon at his son's barmitzvah in Kfar Chabad

From COL - Bochrim and yungerleit have been doing Mivtza Tefillin at Hadassah Hospital. Kol Hakavod!!

Hundreds of journalist from around the globe, public figures, politicians and concerned civilians have been filling the entrance lawn to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Yerushalayim, where Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has been under medical surveillance and in critical condition since last Wednesday.

Thereupon, bochrim from Toras Emes and Anash from nearby locations took this opportunity to do a massive tefillin laying project. Many agreed to put on the tefillin immediately while others conditioned this with 'so that Arik recovers'. One of the Anash members told COL that literally hundreds laid tefillin in a single day. These 'mivtza' scenes were also covered by many media personnel on the spot.
