Before writing this post I have a confession to make. My knowledge of torat hanigle is quite limited, and my knowledge of torat hanistar is almost non-existent. Despite all this -
I had the privilege of taking part in the "Od Yosef Chai" prayer as outlined in the book Kol HaTor by Rabbi Hillel of Shklov, a disciple of the Vilna Gaon. About 30 people gathered at a place in Jerusalem which, according to tradition, is "Pitcha DeQarta" to say the prayers.
May G-d answer our prayers and may all the evil decrees be annulled!
