Abutbol Prays Against Plague in Bet Shemesh

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
After a series of tragedies throughout the city of Bet Shemesh, in which 4 children have died within a short period of time, each from different causes, some people are thinking there is a curse, or a plague, on the city.
Abutbol prays against plague in Bet Shemesh
After consultation with Rav Bentzion Mutzafi the mayor of Bet Shemesh, Moshe Abutbol, went out with a minyan of local avreichim and chanted the chapter of "Pitum HaKetores" in each of the four corners of the city.
The concept is a kabbalistic one based on the writings of the Zohar that during a time of plague or war one should say Pitum Haketores at each of the four corners of the affected place, and will thereby see salvation. This solution is tried and tested.

I guess it can't hurt. Seems at least harmless to me. And it is cheaper than any practical solutions (eg redesigning the roads) might be.
