The event, which is shrouded in an aura of holiness and reverence, begins with mincha, as it says, "Eliyahu was answered only at mincha." Afterwards, Rav Abuchatzeira will lead the crowd in the recitation of seder hatikkun.
The Rav will then take out a shofar that is 150 years old, an inheritance from his grandfather, the admor Rabi Massoud Abuchatzeira, who received it from his father, the Abir Yaakov. Rabi Massoud is the father of the Baba Sali and of the Rav's father, the Baba Chaki. Before blowing it, the Rav will ask those assembled to have kavana that the prayers they offer on behalf of men and women in need of a shidduch will be answered quickly. [Baba Sali and Baba Chaki both had a lifelong relationship with Yad L’Achim and would constantly offer words of chizuk to Yad L’Achim to continue in their Avodas Hakodesh.]
The admor will ascend the roof of the holy tziyun and circle it seven times, holding lists of those who have donated to the mitzvah of Pidyon Shvuyim. He will recite relevant chapters of Tehilim and again blow the shofar, followed by the recitation of the moving Ana BeKo'ach prayer.
Rav Abuchatzeira will then enter the tziyun, and after spending long minutes lighting candles, will begin reading the names of those in need of shidduchim, carefully enunciating each one in a heartfelt plea.
At the conclusion of the tefillah, Rav Abuchatzeira davens: "Let it be His Will that our tefillot are accepted by the Holy Throne, and the donors whose names we read now will merit mercy and salvation and to quickly establish a bayit ne'eman beYisrael, among all of Klal Yisrael in need of a yeshuah."
