We Are Stopping The SPREAD of Negativity- and So Can You.

[COMMUNICATED] A global pandemic requires a global response and tomorrow, Wednesday March 18th, with the encouragement and chizuk of Gedolim,

a worldwide campaign is launching to join Klal Yisroel together in taking on a simple but powerful Kabbalah for 14 days as a zechus to protect us from all harm from the Corona virus.

As the crisis deepens each day, Hashem is calling to us to look upward and recognize that everything is in His control. While the rest of the world continues trying to figure out stopgap measures to stem the ongoing spread of the disease, we know that it is only through Rachamei Shamayim that it will come to an end.

By accepting to not text, forward or post any hurtful messages for 14 days starting Wednesday March 18th until Tuesday March 31st we will send a message that we recognize the potential damage that a seemingly “harmless” comment can make. Parallel to the Corona virus, we understand how the unchecked spread of such negativity can painfully impact individuals and groups in a very short time period.

Joining the campaign is easy by visiting www.joinstopthespread.com or texting “stopspread” to 474747. You can already sign up NOW!

Together with our continued Tefillos, the merit of this united campaign should BE’H again turn the months of Adar and Nisan into a zman of Nissim and Yeshuos for all of Klal Yisroel.

  1. Unfortunately, there was a tremendous amount of machlokes and hurtful comments during the measles situation, which began in November 2018. Since Rav Kanievsky, shlita, recently said that in order to protect ourselves from the coronavirus we must be careful with shmiras halashon (“Everyone must be mechazek to refrain from lashon hara”), perhaps this virus came about because of negligence with lashon hara.

    Maybe it would be a good idea for those who unfortunately were involved in this machlokes and hurtful comments to ask mechila from those they hurt, and those were hurt can grant forgiveness (even if not directly asked for forgiveness) because Rav Kanievsky, shlita, also said that we should strengthen ourselves in the middah of humility and “maavir al midosav – let things slide.” Can all our tehillim and tefillos be answered l’tova now if we are still tainted with the machlokes and lashon hara that occurred starting November 2018, and perhaps still ongoing?
