Vaad Harabbanim offers a powerful segulah for healing, even in cases where modern medicine doesn’t have the answers. It’s all about Shavu’os:
Kri’as Hatorah on Shavu’os morning is a super-big event, and you can’t get by without it.
It’s Kabbalas Hatorah. It’s Aseres Hadibros. It’s thunder and lightning and the mountain on smoke. And it’s more.
That’s why Harav Elyashiv zatzal would take the time to say a special prayer when he would get an aliyah on Shavu’os morning. Even though people were waiting, and he knew that, and tircha d’tzibura is an important Halachic consideration.
But Harav Elyashiv zatzal would just stand there, and daven for a refuah sheleimah for the names on the specially prepared Vaad Harabbanim list, because if not now, when?
All the sick and the lame and the blind were healed before Matan Torah. Miraculously. Because you need to be strong of mind and body in order to receive the Torah.
So that’s why Hashem healed everybody before Matan Torah, even if they were unhealable, medically speaking. In other words, it was a nes, a miracle.
This makes the time of the Torah reading on Shavu’os morning into a great moment of segulah, for miracles of the medical kind. This segulah can do it, because this is when the supernal light of the Giving of the Torah shines into this world, bringing in its wake the miraculous healing power that was revealed at Har Sinai.
This is what Harav Elyashiv held, and he put it into practice, praying for the sick people on the Vaad Harabbanim list, at the time of Kri’as Hatorah on Shavu’os morning.
Gedolei Hador continue to practice this amazing and powerful segulah for refuah on Shavu’os morning at the time of the Torah reading.
Rely on the Gedolei Hador. They are holding at the place where we would like to be, and that place, on Shavu’os morning, is Har Sinai.
