A tikkun performed by ten mekubalim along with the Rosh Yeshivah. In a specific order based on the method of the Chida, 160 coins of pure gold are divided, and the pidyon nefesh text is recited. Each participant then receives the monetary worth of two meals ($20 per person). This tikkun is known to achieve tremendous yeshuos, such as sick patients healing, and more.

It is a known concept that every time a person sins, he should fast 84 times to atone for his transgression. Our generation, however, is too weak for this to be possible, and the great mekubalim have therefore instructed to fast one day each week throughout the weeks of Shovavim instead. Special Shovavim prayers are held in the yeshivah in addition to these fasts, following the teachings of the Rashash and the Chida who instituted specific tikkunim for these auspicious days. The tefillos are recited for atonement for the severest sins, as well as for both communal and personal yeshuos, based on the requests of the donors. The yeshivah hall regularly welcomes hundreds of people who gather there to recite the tikkun together with the rashei yeshivah and gedolei Yisrael. Many of the participants travel from overseas to partake in the special event. If a person cannot physically join or fast himself, he can send his name and the names of his family members to the rabbanim to perform the tikkun and pidyon on their behalf instead.
(said in particular weeks of the year)
ידוע שעל כל פעם ופעם שאדם חוטא צריכים להתענות פ"ד תעניות, ובדור הזה ירדה חולשה לעולם, ואי אפשר להתענות בכל פעם. לכן תיקנו חכמי המקובלים להתענות ים אחד בכל שבוע משבועות השובבי"ם. בהיכל הישיבה מתאספים בקביעות מאות אנשים לאמירת התיקון יחד עם ראשי הישבה וגדולי ישראל, ישנם רבים המגיעים מעבר לים להשתתף במעמד הנשגב, ומי שאין ביכולתו להשתתף בפועל או שאינו יכול להתענות, שולחים את שמותיהם ושמות בני משפחתם בכדי שהרבנים יערכו עבורם את התיקון והפדיון.
Pidyon Pey-Dalet Taaniyos
The 5th of Av is the yahrtzeit -or Hilulah – of the Arizal. On that day, all the mekubalim and rabbanim of the yeshivah travel together to the gravesite of this father of Kabbalah, the Arizal, where they daven with many tikkunim and yichudim for the yeshivah and all of Am Yisrael, and especially for the donors and their needs. A special tikkun is then also performed at the gravesite of Benayahu Ben Yehoyada, circling the kever seven times – a holy procedure in its own right in the world of Kabbalah, and once again all the donors are mentioned in prayers for their success and happiness on all fronts. Finally, another prayer ritual on behalf of the donors is conducted at the famous gravesite of Rabi Shimon Bar Yochai.
