Tehillim Group

The Carmella Leah Tehillim Group

Our patriarch Isaac blessed Jacob, “The voice is the voice of Jacob and the hands are the hands of Esau.” (Toldos 27, 22) The strength of the Jewish people lies in their prayers, their ability to turn to Hashem to praise Him and ask for their needs.

Our Tehillim group named after Carmella Leah Pakter brings together up to over thirty women on the Sunday before Rosh Chodesh at 9:45 – 10:30 am. We read the entire 150 psalms and then I read out the names of those for whom we pray.

Tehillim is our secret weapon and we know of cases where sick people have recovered, which we believe is a result of our prayers. The prayers are not only for those who are ill but for those who need to fall pregnant, to find a “shiduch” and for every need of life, such as “parnassah” etc.

I thank these dedicated ladies for their participation, to attend the sessions even only on behalf of others. This is true “chesed” – kindness!
May we merit a time of peace and health for all and happiness without sorrow. May all of us enjoy a wonderful and sweet New Year hxa, 5771 and merit to greet “moshiach” speedily in our days.

Love, Rochel Suchard
