Letter to Rochel Imenu, a'h

11 Cheshvan, is the Hillula/Yartzeit of Rochel Imenu, a'h.

Ima! Rochel Imenu; your children, Am Israel, after 2,000 of terrible and wicked galut, great sufferings, and punishments, we come to you, our holy mother, one of the 4 holy mothers. You gave up your soul for your sister Leah. Ima, look at us, look at your children, we are left poor, downtrodden, plundered, in the darkenss and we don't know anymore between left and right.

"A voice was heard in Rama, lamentation and bitter weeping; Rachel weeping for her children, she refused to be comforted for her children because they are not. Thus says HaShem, 'keep your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears; for your work shall be rewarded and they shall come back from the land of the enemy. And there is hope for the future, says HKB'H, and My children shall come back again to their own border" (Jeremiah 31, 14-16).

Wake up! Ima Rochel, wake up! Do as you promised us, rise our beloved mother! Cry for us, stand infront of the Heavenly Throne and don't stop your tears. We are tired, we are fatigued from all the suffering, everything around us are the tears of mourning, orphans, and widows that are screaming till Shamayim. Bereaved mothers, widows, poor people, ill people, tired and suffering, awake and be our defender.

Remind our Father in Heaven of our suffering. We sinned, we distored, we committed crimes! Oy to us for listening to the evil inclination that blinded us and distanced us from all the goodness and plentiful into destruction. Wondering children living in the 4 corners of the earth without a shephard, without prophecy, without advise. How can we not fall? How can we not stumble? We don't know how to extricate ourselves, Ima! We are waiting for the redeemer, we don't have any more strength to suffer! Although our Father wants us to awaken, and we want it too, we want the suffering to end. We want to be free of the pain and unite in cries till Shamayim but the evil inclination continues loading trouble on us, continues to cause us to fight with one another, continues blinding the scholars.

Awaken! Once again, give yourselves to us but this time, open for us the gate, the gate out of the galut hell, have pity on us, please!

Mention our charities to the Kings of all Kings, mention the self-sacrifice that Am Israel contineus to do during all generations, mention that we continue to stay devoted to the Torah. Defend the lost Jewish souls.

Ima, Ima, we look different now but we are the same children, suffering. We don't even know our own selves and don't know what happened to us and why. Ima Rochel, look how much darkness is around us but we are still devoted to HKB'H inside our hearts and soul. Recognize that we are still the same beloved children that accepted the holy Torah when we said "Naase Ve Nishma". Don't judge us by our external look, for it looks very very bad. Inside our hearts and soul, the Jewish spark is burning and waiting for the spark to be rekindle with love for our Heavenly Father in Heaven, that no water can ever extinguish. All the tears will never extinguish the love we have for our Heavenly Father.

Sara, Rivka, Rochel, and Leah Imenu; Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov Avinu, we are turning to you with tears and begging you to awaken mercy on the lost sheep that got lost between the 70 wolves. Look at the tears of the innocent babies that never tasted the taste of sinning, look at the crying widows that cry for their dead husbands, look at weeping mothers that lost their children that never returned home, look at the tears of the poor people who are in pain, look at the ill that are suffering in the soul and body, look at all the depressed people that are suffering in Am Israel, that their hearts are so bitter and no one can comfort them. How can you stand against our hot tears and keep silent? Understand that we are devoted to our Heavenly Father against all odds.

Cry and scream infront of our Heavenly Father to save us. It's not possible that wicked Esav dropped 3 unemotional and cold drops and got so much reward for it. Look at our boiling tears, the Jews are crying from the bottom of their heart and soul after such a long suffering. The Jewish heart is so broken. Father, Creator of the World, take our broken hearts and clean us from our sins and bring the end, the redemption, with mercy and love.

We waive the freedom of choice that You have given us. Please give us from Your treasures a free gift, and save us.

השיבנו ה' אליך ונשובה
Bring us back to You, HaShem, and we shall return

May the merits of the tzaddika Rochel Imenu protect us all, Amen.
