Jerusalem - Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky said on Monday that the prayers made for the three teenage boys who were murdered were not futile and had a purpose.

The rabbi, considered in the haredi world as one of the highest in rabbinical authority, said that the prayers recited over the last two weeks the boys have been missing brought those in the Jewish faith closer to God Israel National News reports (http://bit.ly/VAX6UK ).

To be more precise, Hagoan R Chaim Kanievsky sat in devastated silence for several minutes, he then said that the tefilos are a great zchus for the niftorim and they had great zchus in all the achdus and the kabolos by so many thousands of individuals.

It is probably not a coincidence that this triple tragedy accrued precisely three years after the tragic "Leiby Kletzky" murder. I'm not in heaven, but who knows maybe there is some heavenly message here?

When the holocaust was happening, no one could fathom the reasoning and hate that contributed to the murder and devastation of so many. If you have any silence in your own home, prayer is the only way. Ultimately, in times like these, we can only look at the stars in the heavens and pray that tomorrow will keep us in better hope and favor with Torah and G-d.

And precisely two years after the petirah of Maran Rav Yosef Shalom Eliyashiv Zt"l

Please spare us your mindless and hurtful commentary that this political assassination in EY is somehow related to the actions of some sick pervert in Brooklyn. Do you have nothing else to do but search for "heavenly messages". Do we need to predict what may happen to your children?

The question if a tefila is in vain goes back to Parshas Veschanan. Why Hashem let Moshe Rabainu daven 515 seemingly unnecessary tefilos. The simple answer is that Hashem needed those tefilos for other people who may need those tefilos. No tefila is ever said in vain.

I may not be able to give you the "heavenly" message you think you want to hear, but I can indeed give you a Torah message which is founded by Torah in the Heavens.
Read your own lips and realize why you are not growing in Torah. Your suggestion of a calamity planned by the lateralization of the world above running dry is just plain soothsaying. And that is plain hate of Torah. So I would think you need to repent, give charity, pray and damned if you are really innocent, get a good psychiatrist to discuss your moods and any other extra special feelings you may harbor. It might not be Hashem you need to worry about.

I am glad the bodies of these innocent souls were found, so will be given a proper Jewish burial, and also that they were not tortured for weeks but that they died soon after they were kidnapped. Also, no prisoners will be released now, though that is only good after the fact and I would have said to do anything as long as the boys would be back, safely. I am unable to accept this outcome but must, my tears flow, my heart aches, and I never even met them. May Hashem have rachmones on Am Yisroel and may we find achdus in victory, not loss.

Stop being so judgmental.

While I agree that it seems rediculous to tie what happened in E" to some sicko, and we cannot fathom why either tragedy happened, it is definitelya part of Judaism to do a chesbon hanefesh of klal yisroel and try to improve ourselves.
