Bi-lingual Hebrew-English prayers to be recited for victory in the war, by the Chakover Grand Rabbi J. Halberstam. Tfiloh (Prayer) for health begins with instructions for beseeching health according to the kabbalists and a prayer for good health, including when the tfiloh should and should not be said by the Chakover Rabbi.
