Kupat Ha'Ir is so dramatic!

This is the latest tzedaka ad in the Yated for the Kupa of Bnei Brak. They are a making a "historic" trip to the grave of the Shunamit woman. Rav Chaim Kanievsky is not joining them so it is only "with is consultation and guidance" and Rav Kanievsky will be saying tehillim and names at the same time they are at the grave.

They make everything so dramatic. What is so historic about going to the grave of the Shunamit woman? It is a grave that is open to the public on a steady basis. Even if it is a place that has special power - I have heard it is specifically a segulah to daven there for children and the ad says it is as well - why is it so historic?

I must say they did top the ad (both in size and in drama) on the previous page of the Yated for the tzedaka of the Vaad Harabbonim who are only going to the grave of a chassidishe rebbe in Tiberias (one I never heard of) and to the grave of the Shelah in Tiberias...


  1. Someone should compile all the Kupa's ads. They're classic. Did you see the one for Birkas haChamah?

  2. Kupat ha'Ir is a chevras ganovim.

    R' MOshe writes that one who cheats on Exams and gets a job due to his degree from those exams - every penny earned in geneiva.

    These reshoim with these ads take the oilam for a ride every other day. And yes it works - otherwise they would have stopped long ago.
