Chadrei Charedim reports that, in light of the passing of four shluchim recently, there will be a hisorerut gathering at Kfar Chabad tomorrow afternoon, Taanit Esther.
The work Kav Ha’yashar...writes that the day of Ta’anit Ester is an especially auspicious time for our prayers to gain acceptance in the merit of Ester and Mordechai. The Kav Ha’yashar therefore advises those in need of divine compassion to set aside some time on Ta’anit Ester and recite the 22nd chapter of Tehillim (“Lamenase’ah Al Ayelet Ha’shahar”), followed by a prayer for whatever it is that they need. In this prayer one should explicitly invoke the merit of Mordechai and Ester. http://www.dailyhalacha.com/Display.asp?ClipID=2290
