23 Sivan: A Special Day for Salvation

Special prayer for the 23rd of Sivan [Thursday 3 June]

On the 23rd of the month of Sivan (כג׳ סיון) the decree of Haman (At the time of Mordechai and Esther) to annihilate the Jewish nation was nullified. 

The holy books teach us that this day is a very powerful day for prayers to nullify decrees and anything bad, evil and horrible against us. In the same way that from that day the situation of the Jewish nation changed and became good, and “Mordecai left the king’s presence with royal raiment” (Esther 8/15) … “and the city of Shushan shouted and rejoiced” … and as a result the Megila says… “The Jews had light and joy, and gladness and honor” – The holy books teach us that this day (Sivan 23) is a powerful day to revoke and nullify any decree against you (Sickness, death, poverty, infertile, etc.) 

Therefore on this powerful day there are a few things you want to do: 

Light two (2) candles for Esther and Mordechai 
  • Give three (3) coins to charity. The coins should be held with both hands at the same time when placing in the charity box 
  • Read chapters 22, 83, 130, 142 of Tehilim – Find text at link below 
  • Read chapter 8 from the Megila of Esther – Find text at link below 
  • Read Avinu Malkeinu (Without a blessing, just the text)- Find text at link below 
  • Pray from your heart with your words anything you want and need – Ask from Hashem 
  • Recite the short prayer – Find text at link below 
  • Take upon yourself a good decision to add a Mitzvah to your daily schedule 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure all the above is done and read on the 23rd of Sivan during the day from dawn till sundown!
