Dear Family and Friends,I have been fortunate enough to be able to secure a spot to participate as a lomeid in the upcoming Shas-a-Thon to be held on February 18, 2018. The Shas-a-thon is an incredibly unique and special event that benefits A TIME, an organization that assists couples dealing with infertility and pregnancy loss R"N. This is no ordinary fundraising event like a bike-a-thon, swim-a-thon, skiing event, tennis and basketball competitions, buffet parlor meetings with carving stations or even poolside BBQ"s with wine tasting. The Shas-a-Thon brings tremendous zechusim and chizuk to all the lonely childless couples in the world as the entire Shas, all 2,711 Blatt, are finished in one single day, hours and hours of continuous intense learning, under one roof in their zechus. Just imagine for a second the kol torah that will be emanating, the energy, the hasmada, the grind, the intensity, from the ballroom filled with 300 people working as one to reach the momentous occasion of completing Shas L"zchus Klal Yisroel . It is well known that Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shl"ita davens and says the names of those in need of a yeshua after all his siyumim throughout the year because it is a special ais ratzon and rachamim. At the Shas-a-Thon following the completion of Shas there is tehillim brabim and a special tefillah recited specifically for these couples.
