I know everyone’s brain is fried out, so let’s make this as simple as possible.

Today, the Ynet website reported that the State of Israel has now conducted more than a million COVID-19 tests.

====

This is a crucial piece of information.

Over on the Worldometer website HERE, we can see that the total number of Coronavirus cases in Israel, as of July 1, 2020, stands at:

25,547

Now, let’s do the maths.

25,547 cases divided by 1,000,000 tests = an infection rate of just 0.0255, or approximately 2.5%.

====

Now, let’s do some more maths.

As of July 1, 2020, the mortality from COVID-19 (which only kills old people with existing serious health conditions) is just 320 deaths since the first death occurred on March 20, 2020 – that’s a 100 days ago.

If 320 people are dying per million people in Israel, and the Israeli population is approximately 8.9 million, that means that 2,880 old, sick people in total could die in Israel from COVID-19 in total, if everyone caught it.

To put this another way, the MORTALITY rate for COVID-19 per million people is just: 0.032%.

If you go to the CDC website HERE, you’ll see that the average mortality rate for an average flu in the US is 2%.

COVID-19 is killing way less than a quarter of the people who die from flu, in an average year.

DOES THAT SOUND LIKE A ‘PANDEMIC’ TO YOU?

====

There is clearly something else going on here, some other agenda.

Three days ago, I tripped over a whole load of information – hidden in plain view – which explains a little more of what is really happening, and why.

After that research, I got a migraine for two days….

All this is so very heavy.

And all this can so easily stress me out of my eyeballs, dint my joie de vivre and take me away from feeling Hashem’s kindness and love.

None of that is helpful.

So, while I’m figuring out what God really wants me to be doing with all this information that I just keep gathering and gathering and gathering, I decided that the main thing I have to work on is nullifying myself to Hashem’s will.

It’s really hard.

Particularly around the subject of face masks, because I know it’s totally BS, and based on a falsified COVID ‘pandemic’ that really isn’t.

But what else can I do, right now?

I’m running out of energy to keep pointing out the obvious. Either more people will see what’s going on, and acknowledge that something is very wrong with this picture, or they won’t.

And then, either more people will start to realise that getting behind our true tzaddikim – especially Rav Berland – is the only way to really be able to stand up in this test, or they won’t.

====

In the meantime, I’m continuing to pack in ‘real life’ as much as I can, into every day.

So today, I went wading through a desert stream near Jerusalem with a couple of friends, which was totally awesome.

For as long as we can, we must.

We only have today.

And we all need to maximise this opportunity to fill our souls up with fresh air and emuna as much as possible, before the next stage begins.

And that could be any day soon.

====

UPDATE:

I just got sent this over email, by one of my favorite correspondents:

Hang in there. It’s getting stranger and stranger. I don’t know about you but for some reason I actually feel more at home with “strange” than with “not-strange.” Rabbi Manis Friedman said, a few months ago, within all this, that “soon, we are going to see evil in places where we never thought to see evil, and good in places where we never thought we’d see good. It’s going to look real bad, but not to worry. When the evil has so much self-confidence that it reveals itself openly, that’s it’s downfall. It can only exist when it’s not seen. Its pride is causing it to fall…”

And now, I’ve just read the piece my correspondent linked to, which is also a very important read.

In a nutshell, the reason so many people are blindly going along with all the lies we’re being told is because they are operating from a place of constricted consciousness, or mochin de-katnut. 

But God wants us to move out of that immature mental state, and into mochin de-gadlut, or expanded consciousness, ahead of Moshiach showing up.

And the COVID con may just be the thing that’s finally going to get humanity to grow up, and to become the spiritual, wise and compassionate people God designed us to be.

You can read the piece HERE – it describes what’s going on in emotional / psychological parlance, but it’s basically describing the mechanism of why we are stuck in mochin de-katnut, and what it’s going to take to move to mochin de-gadlut.

And then when you’re done, check this out, too:

Are you questioning the dominant narrative?

Check out questioningcovid.com, where clinicians, researchers, and health experts from around the world are interrogating the mainstream narrative around the pandemic.

====

Here’s a snippet from that piece, on the KellyBroganMD website:

So what is it that doesn’t make sense?

Is it:

  • that many medical experts have actually downgraded the potential threat of Covid-19 from initial projections by orders of magnitude, including Dr. Anthony Fauci himself, in a New England Journal of Medicine report where he wrote that “the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) …” yet we are seeing unprecedented, draconian style control measures being implemented by executive order?

  • that there were staged planning events in October 2019 including Urban Outbreak and Event 201nationwide CDC Quarantine Program job postings from November of 2019, a coronavirus patentWorld Bank pandemic bonds, well in advance of when this pandemic supposedly started, and spontaneously erupted and disseminated globally in a manner that could never be explained through person to person contagion?

  • that doctors are being told to code all deaths as covid without so much as the facade of testing when up to 99% of case fatalities are in individuals with multiple pre-existing conditions, the vast majority of them elderly?

  • that hospitals are supposedly full to the brim with intubated patients when hospital staff are being laid off or furloughed, and whistleblowers are speaking to iatrogenic harm and death (including through intubation) being systematically committed by physicians?

  • that the plan for “return to normal” is being dictated by an unelected software technocrat who happens to also fund GMOs (including non-meat synthetic products), 5G, all of the labs currently working on the vaccine, implantable tracking devices, and the WHO?

  • that people were dying en masse from all manner of preventable illnesses ranging from obesity to hunger to properly prescribed medications with no historical precedent for governmental intervention around these far deadlier epidemics, but now we are to believe that the government cares so much about us that it will “keep us safe” even against our will?

  • that we should consent to be traced and tracked as law-abiding, healthy civilians even when convicted felons and many sex offenders are not?

  • that facial coverings ranging from a scarf to a reused surgical mask with mm pore sizes are going to “keep out” what we are calling a virus which is nm in diameter? 1

  • that mask-wearing has been enforced when the Surgeon General, the WHO and even Fauci say to not wear them, and elected officials congregated on television have never worn them?

  • that Walmart, Target, and Costco are open while small businesses, parks, and beaches have been shuttered since March 14th, many of which will remain permanently closed due to the irreversible economic impacts of the shutdown?

  • that the list of the virus’s associated symptoms have grown and changed, all the while without there being unequivocal evidence of the virus’s point-of-origin in isolation in Wuhan or proof of global contagion?

  • that 5G networks are being installed during a time of “essential work only” in every major metropolitan area while we are quarantined in our homes?

  • that the immune system thrives on diversity of exposure, sunlight, time in nature and in loving company of others, but we are being told to hide alone, indoors?

  • that 30 million people in this country alone have suddenly lost their jobs through “essential business” restrictions, however there happened to be a 1000 page piece of legislation spontaneously prepared to institute the roll out of a system of government handouts and cashless currency?

  • that numbers of cases are determined through testing methods that do not confirm Covid-19, have tested positive in fruit and animals, and which the test inventor said should not be used to identify a specific disease?

Remember, Rav Pinto said there was going to be a ‘big’ earthquake?

While the corrupt MSM isn’t reporting anything much, except fake news about Coronavirus and more fake news about ‘peace plans’ and Black Lives Matter protests, there are actually some big things happening in the world.

BH, Dutchsinse came back online to record what’s going on with the seismic activity, over the last week.

If you don’t know who Dutchsinse is, he’s a Youtuber who figured out how to forecast earthquakes – totally disproving all the fake, mainstream science about how the world operates, geologically-speaking – so he was forced offline at the beginning of the year, in a million different ways.

But God bless him, he’s back.

====

Here’s his latest video, (20 mins) explaining what’s going on this week:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHE92x768p8h-fMrqhsnE1Q

(It doesn’t seem to be displaying properly – this is one of the ways being used to reduce the number of viewers he gets. Sigh.)

====

If you don’t want to watch, here’s a rundown of this week’s unusual earthquakes, that the MSM is barely mentioning:

16 June, 2020 – 4.6 quake in Japan

18.6 June, 2020 – Very large 7.4 quake strikes near New Zealand

June 19: An earthquake swarm of 4,500 quakes (and counting…) begins in Iceland.

It’s still ongoing, it included a 5.8 quake on June 21, and there is a strong possibility that the Grímsvötn volcano – which last erupted in 2011, grounding all airplanes for the best part of a week – could erupt again soon. This is what happened then:

====

23 June, 2020: Very large quake strikes in Mexico.

24 June, 2020: Large 5.8 earthquake strikes in California – very close to China Lake.

This last one made me REALLY happy, because China Lake is where so much of the awful MKULTRA / child trafficking stuff was going on, until God put an end to it (at least in that location…) last year, when He sent the biggest quake California had seen on July 4, 2019 directly to the ‘secret’ Naval base at China Lake.

The base got wrecked, and rendered inoperable.

====

Then two days later, Jeffrey Epstein got arrested.

And then, he got either murdered, or pretend-murdered / pretend-suicided, and the story kind of died again.

But guess what?

Now it’s coming back into the headlines.

====

The following quotes comes from THIS article, which appeared on June 18, 2020:

“In an interview with Consortium News, former Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben-Menashe said Epstein did not work with Mossad. “Military intelligence was who he was working with,” said Ben-Menashe. “Big difference,” he said. “He never worked with Mossad, and Robert Maxwell never did, either. It was military intelligence….

….Just before Ben-Menashe spoke to Consortium News on Monday, he said he had received an angry telephone call from Israel’s Channel 13 television station.

“They called me, and they went wild: ‘What, you believe Israel would use little girls? You are saying that? You are insulting the nation, you are making us anathema around the world.’ I said, ‘The truth is the truth.’ And Jeffrey Epstein’s story is something that nobody wanted to hear. He was working with the Israelis, he was working with Maxwell,” Ben-Menashe said.

He added: “It’s a very bad story, and I can see why the Israelis are so concerned about it. I believe [Channel 13] were expressing anger, and I believe this was a message. I don’t like messages like that… it has to do with the timing and these stories coming out about Epstein. They [Israel] are starting to become anathema to the world, this adds to it — the Epstein story.”

====

The quakes and Epstein are directly connected.

Les Wexner and Epstein are directly connected.

Epstein and Israeli Military Intelligence are directly connected.

Israeli Military Intelligence has the acronym: HAMAN. This is from Wikipedia:

The Israeli Intelligence Corps (Hebrewחיל המודיעיןHeil HaModi’in), abbreviated to Haman (Hebrewחמ”ן) is an Israel Defense Forces corps which falls under the jurisdiction of IDF Directorate of Military Intelligence (Aman) and is responsible for collecting, disseminating, and publishing intelligence information for the General Staff and the political branch.

====

HAMAN is behind so much of what’s going wrong in Israel right now, including all the Coronavirus stuff, all the hi-tech tracking, all the attempts to demonize the chareidi community, and of course, the re-arrest and ongoing persecution of Rav Berland.

If you go HERE, Wikipedia kindly lists all the people who were the former heads of Unit 8200.

Unit 8200 – ‘AMAN’ – includes HAMAN.

Here’s a partial list:

====

Here’s another interesting article, describing how Ehud Barak and Epstein are linked, and how Barak recieved $2.3 million from the Wexner Foundation, via Epstein, who also invested $1 million in Barak’s own hi-tech company, Carbyne:

====

Carbyne is VERY pleased about the Coronavirus pandemic, and is viewing it as a great opportunity to promote it’s technology, further afield. Here’s a little snippet from its website:

As each state is working its way to gradually go back to restore civic normality, it will have to present interactive ways of communications that will enable it to effectively manage its emergency operations and the public in order to prevent the re-emergence of COVID-19 or at least mitigate it in ways it wasn’t able to do before.

THE SOLUTION

Carbyne’s cloud native c-Live Universe+ platform can be deployed seamlessly and instantaneously to emergency call centers(911,311), health centers, remote doctors and the state government and creates a unified awareness center that provides
unprecedented interoperability, analytics, as well as protection to both citizens and first responders.

====

To put this in plain English, the Carbyne ‘solution’ is to use your iPhone to gather information and snitch on every aspect of where you are located, what you are doing at the time of the call, and to stream ‘video’ of the caller – without your permission! – straight to their databases. You have no say on what info is being gathered about you, not what is being done with it, and that info will then be ‘seamlessly matched’ to all your personal medical information, too, giving Big Brother a pretty thorough picture of some very personal aspects of your life and health.

Genius!

====

Nearly all the hitech ‘success stories’ in Israel are being run by graduates of Unit 8200, who basically parlay their experience in the army, and the connections they make, into million and even billion dollar businesses.

All that nifty tracking technology that the State of Israel is just dying to unleash on the unsuspecting public, in the name of COVID-19? it’s all been built and monetized by former Unit 8200 graduates – aka Israel Military Intelligence, aka HAMAN – who stand to make an absolute killing, financially, if their technology is rolled out nationally and globally.

I don’t know about you, but the thought of what is really going on here is making me pretty queasy.

====

A little while ago, the BreakingIsraelNews website (of Purim shpiel fame) ran this story:

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/151803/israels-deep-state-agents-trained-in-special-school-in-harvard-ngo-asserts/

Here’s a few pertinent quotes from that:

[Im Tirtzu] recently investigated a little known program at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University that hosts rising stars within Israel’s public sector for a year long course in “leadership”. The program is sponsored by the Wexner Foundation. The foundation was founded by billionaire lingerie mogul Les Wexner and late pedophile Jeffery Epstein sat on its board of trustees. Israeli politicians who have helped advance The Wexner Foundation’s mission and programs include former Prime Minister Ehud Barak and the late Shimon Peres….

….[A]ll of the expenses for the trip to Boston, the Harvard degree, the room and board are all paid for by the Israeli government in what he calls: “the biggest corruption scam in the Israel’s history.”

“This can lead to a million shekels ($291,000) per student, all at the expense of Israeli taxpayers.” Additionally, all of the program’s participants continue collecting their salaries from the state while they are participating in the course. Maor cites that there are laws against public servants receiving gifts and is currently fighting to enforce that law against participants in the Wexner Foundation. The problem is that Israel’s Justice system is riddled with Wexner graduates.

Maor concludes that just about all of the foundation’s graduates don’t end up in fields like energy or agriculture but rather those that can influence the state’s security and foreign policy such as the military, police and courts. One prominent example he gives is Israel’s current chief of Staff Aviv Kokhavi who – also a graduate of the Wexner Foundation.

====

Take a look at who the director of [H]AMAN was, in 2010-2014.

And while you’re at it, I also found this post, which lists a whole bunch of police and ‘Justice’ department individuals, in very senior positions who are also all Wexner Foundation graduates.

There’s for sure way, way more going on here, and BH, it’s all going to start coming out of the woodwork soon. Not because I’m going to uncover it – I’m only going to bring things here that other people have already been brave enough to publish.

But because God is going to uncover it.

And that process is speeding up all the time.

====

UPDATE:

There were two more big earthquakes since I wrote this:

A 6.1 off the east coast of Japan, that was felt in Tokyo

And a 5.4 on the Turkey-Iran border that damaged a number of houses.

====

Also, THIS article came out, giving more details about the accusations now being made against Ehud Barak in connection with Epstein, and making it clear that Epstein – as Les Wexner’s asset manager – was the one responsible for handing out the money from the Wexner Foundation to all those Israelis, who basically received a million shekels – on top of their salaries – to spend a year getting a prestigious Harvard degree.

The Talmud tells us clearly that a ‘bribe blinds the eyes of the wise’.

In the meantime, I spent pretty much the whole day yesterday combing through the 500 or so recipients of the Wexner Foundation money in Israel. It’s actually depressing. Here’s just some of the more interesting ones:

Uzi Vogelman – Currently a Supreme Court Justice in Israel, and widely expected to succeed Esther Hayut as top dog, when she steps down in 2023.

Moshe Lador – Former Chief Public Prosecutor for the State of Israel – the guy who went after Ehud Olmert, and a few other things besides, that totally changed the face of Israeli politics.

Rivka Ben-Ari – who before she retired, was responsible for ‘evaluating police candidates’ in her role at the Israel Police Manpower unit.

Ohad Marani – former Director General of Israel’s Ministry of Finance, who now sits on the Board of Bank Leumi, and also chairs the board of Israel Natural Gas Lines – amongst many other things.

Yekoutiel Sabah – formerly the head of the Directorate  for “Reform of the Israeli Public Service”

Avi Gil – Ambassador, and former Deputy Director General of the the Peres Peace Centre, who is still churning out op-eds and being quoted all over the place as part of the Orwellian-sounding Jewish People Policy Planning Institute.

Like this one:

The Future of the Current World Order: Implications for Israel and the Jewish People

And here’s anti-chareidi politician Yair Lapid – speaking in English – addressing a JPPPI audience at ‘The Conference on the Future of the Jewish People”;

These guys have the ears of the politicians, both in Israel and abroad. Here’s another snippet from their website:

On June 23, 2013, the Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI) presented its 2012-2013 Annual Assessment of the Situation and Dynamics of the Jewish People to the Israeli Cabinet. Following the presentation, JPPI held a press briefing to discuss the main points of the presentation. This video contains extracts of briefing comments by Amb. Stuart Eizenstat and Amb. Dennis Ross, Co-Chairs of JPPI. Parts of the briefing were also conducted in Hebrew by JPPI President, Avinoam Bar-Yosef, and Senior Fellows, Dr. Einat Wilf, and Brig. Gen. (Res.) Michael Herzog.

====

And there’s more bad news, too.

Other people who took the money from the Wexner Foundation – run by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein – include:

Ami Ayalon – former Head of the Shin Bet and the Israel Security Agency.

Amos Yadlin – The IDF’s Chief of Defense Intelligence – take a look back at the list of names for who ran Unit 8200, he’s there. And he’s also still popping up all over the place today.

Here he is, interviewing former Gantz buddy, Gadi Eizenkot, back in January 2019, for the Institute for National Security Studies.

====

The INSS is a big organisation – if you take a look at their team, they have well over 70 staff.

And here’s a bit of their mission statement:

The Institute for National Security Studies launches and engages in innovative, relevant, high-quality research that shapes the public discourse of issues on Israel’s national security agenda, and provides policy analysis and recommendations to decision makers, public leaders, and the strategic community, both in Israel and abroad. As part of its mission, it is committed to encourage new ways of thinking and expand the traditional contours of establishment analysis.

So the question is, WHO IS PAYING FOR ALL THIS?

There’s some interesting names on their International Board of Trustees, including Charles Bronfman, and a few others that you might have heard of.

Meanwhile, their Board of Directors is chaired by Australian billionaire Frank Lowy.

While their Israeli Board of Trustees is headed up by:

The Chairman of the INSS Israeli Board of Trustees is Mr. Pinchas (Pini) Cohen, chairman of the NOY Fund.

Here’s a bit about the NOY Fund, from their website:

Over the past two decades the Noy Fund team members have been involved in almost every large scale infrastructure project executed in Israel and have had a significant contribution to the development of the project finance practice in Israel.

How convenient, is that, that the chair of the NOY Fund, who have their fingers in every big ‘infrastructure’ project in Israel, should also be so central to the functioning of the INSS, whose ‘security assessments’ are shaping the policy and direction of Israel, with a bit of help from Jewish billionaires abroad like Charles Bronfman and Frank Lowy?

====

I could go on and on with this.

Yedidia Ya’Ari – former Commander in Chief of Israel’s Navy, and now head of Raphael – he took money from the Wexner Foundation.

Moshe Shilo – former Director General of the Ministry of Justice, before he was fired in ‘interesting’ circumstances that no-one talks about – he took money from the Wexner Foundation.

And so on, and so forth.

====

The last thing to say is that while Channel 13 is trying to close down the Epstein story, they were instrumental in the media witch-hunt against Rabbi Berland, that led to him being put behind bars again.

Read more about their dodgy journalist practices here. And then ponder on the fact that The Tzaddik is just a mirror. 

In about half an hour’s time, there’s going to be a solar eclipse in Israel.

We know from Jewish sources that everything that happens in the celestial sphere is deeply meaningful, spiritually.

The world of Esav, Edom, with it’s solar-based calendar and ‘winter solstice’ obsession (aka xmas) is often likened to the sun.

While the Jewish people is frequently likened to the moon in Jewish sources, which waxes and wanes, and which was originally supposed to equal the sun in light and power, when God first created it.

Today, the sun is being ‘eclipsed’ by the moon.

====

There’s so much to say about so many things, yet strangely the last few days I’ve been finding it harder and harder to speak, even to the people closest to me, at home. Too much uncertainty… too much headspace taken up by things that aren’t even so obvious…too much going on under the surface.

A couple of days ago, tho, it started to become much clearer why the Israeli authorities have gone to so much effort to get Rav Berland behind bars again, on trump-ed up charges, pun fully intended.

It’s the ‘peace plan’.

And especially, that part of the ‘peace plan’ that mandates giving so many of Am Yisrael’s holiest sites, like Kever Yosef, Hevron and Kever Rachel to the Palestinians.

This is Oslo all over again.

It’s the same failed plan of Peres and Rabin all over again.

Except now, they – the people running Edom / the West, who use all our politicians as corrupt pawns in their game – are trying to implement it via Netanyahu and Gantz.

====

Last time around, there was a group of rabbanim, spear-headed by Rabbi Berland, who vociferously opposed Oslo’s attempt to put places like Kever Rachel and Hevron and Kever Yosef out of reach of the praying Jewish public.

The Rav, in particular, kept sending out the students from Shuvu Banim – often leading from the front, and joining the cavalcade of cars making their way to pray at these kevarim – without official ‘permission’ from the army and the government.

You can read some of the story of how the Rav – and others – fought to maintain access to Kever Yosef on the ravberland.com website, HERE.

====

In the meantime, this is an excerpt from One in a Generation, Volume II;

So Rav Berland and many others, including Rav Shalom Abergel, Rav Golan Mor, and Rav Mordechai Gross, fought hard to maintain Jewish access to these sites. Rav Berland continued to encourage his students to visit these holy sites and to visit them himself at every opportunity, eventually forcing the Israeli government into a partial compromise about allowing Jewish access to these graves.

These visits were roundly condemned in the secular press and also angered many of the leading figures in the army, intelligence agencies and Israeli government, who didn’t want this Rabbi and his followers forcing their hand on security matters and dictating policy to them. For as long as Rav Berland had been out of action, the defense establishment didn’t care so much. But now he was back, and he was encouraging hundreds of people to visit the holy graves of Tzaddikim like Yosef Hatzaddik, Rachel Imeinu, the Prophet Natan and many other holy sites that were officially in ‘Area A’, the area placed under Palestinian control.

On July 31, 2011, shortly after another fatal shooting during an unauthorized visit to Kever Yosef, Rav Berland was visited by the Head of IDF Central Command, who asked the Rav to stop his students from making any more unauthorized visits to Kever Yosef and the other Jewish holy tombs in the West Bank.

Rav Berland agreed on condition that the army chief would start arranging more authorized entries to these sites.

Also in 2011, the IDF Commander of Yehuda and Shomron met with the late Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv to try to convince him to issue a statement forbidding any more unauthorized visits to Kever Yosef and other Jewish holy sites. The IDF was clearly very serious about trying to stop the unauthorized visits.

Two years’ later, following a rock attack on the Rav and his followers’ cars in Chalhul in 2013, the Head of the IDF in Samaria made another visit to Rav Berland, to try to persuade him to stop visiting Chalchul.

The Rav showed the army chief many of the passages in the holy books that describe how all the protection of Israel is only due to the kivrei Tzaddikim. He told him that all the miracles that Israel experienced in the Six-Day War and the Yom Kippur War were in the merit of the holy Tzaddikim buried in Israel.

“You are saying it’s a danger to go into Chalhul, and I’m saying it’s a danger not to go into Chalhul!” the Rav remonstrated. But the army chief was not impressed by the Rav’s words and left.

Shortly after Rav Berland’s encounter with the IDF chief — and many months still before the first slanders surfaced in the Israeli press — the Rav mentioned in one of his shiurim that he suspected that there were people in Israel who wanted to create a libel against him so he’d end up dying in jail.

Soon afterwards, Rav Berland left the country.

====

I actually decided to censor what Rav Berland really said at this time, which is that the Israeli government wanted to do to him what they had done to Rabbi Uzi Meshulam, before him.

When I started researching what had happened to Rabbi Meshulam – when a lot of that information was still freely available, and hadn’t yet been scrubbed off the web – it scared the living daylights out of me.

For the first time, I started to understand just how evil the people running Israel from behind the scenes really were.

It’s not a CO-IN-CID-ENCE that Rav Berland developed so many different tumors and aggressive cancers while in Israeli prison the last time around.

This led directly to all my research on what really happened to the Yemenite children, and the MKUltra stuff, and all the other ‘risque’ pieces that have appeared on this blog over the last year or so.

But when I first started researching the material for One in a Generation, Peres was still alive, and I literally felt I was risking my life to go anywhere near these topics.

====

Now?

Things have changed.

Things are being sweetened all the time, and evil’s grip on the world – and on Israel in particular – is actually starting to falter.

They played their ‘coronavirus pandemic’ card, and it hasn’t gone as planned. But in the meantime, this whole saga has ripped the mask off the murky puppet-masters trying to pull the strings from the background, and orchestrate mass-uprisings and political panic, so they can take over and make martial law a permanent feature of life.

But despite their best efforts, it hasn’t quite worked that way.

Even though the Jpost – and all the other media outlets who now get a sizeable amount of their budgets directly from the government, and from people with ‘agendas’ like Bill Gates – is continuing to spew out baseless propaganda and fearmongering 24/7, the public just isn’t buying it anymore.

And that’s with all the ongoing censorship of comments and manipulation of information that’s going on all over the place.

Coronavirus is back-firing big time.

It’s done more to convince more people about the truth present in most ‘conspiracy theories’ than anything else could have.

====

So now, what about the Rav?

We’ve known all along that the Rav being imprisoned is intrinsically linked to Coronavirus, at least in Israel.

The kabbalists and many other rabbis told us this well in advance of the fake ‘pandemic’ being stoked by Netanyahu, Bar Siman-Tov and Grotto, which resulted in the economic shutdown which instantly led to a million Israelis being unemployed – aka around a quarter of the working population.

But now, another connection is swimming into view.

The authorities here knew about Trump’s ‘peace plan’, knew that it was basically Oslo all over again – just packaged more cleverly – and knew that the Rav, and his tens of thousands of students at Shuvu Banim would be a bone in the throat of trying to ‘disengage’ from many of Judaism’s holy sites.

So what did they do?

They engineered another fake case against him, CO-IN-CI-DENT-AL-LY just as they stoked the Coronavirus panic that was meant to keep the Israeli public locked down and docile for the time required to implement the ‘peace plan’ by force.

Except….

It isn’t quite going to plan.

Sure, the Rav is behind bars. Sure, the corrupt authorities here have no intention of ever letting him out. Sure, they also managed to get the entire Shuvu Banim community ‘excommunicated’, too, by their lackeys in so-called ‘frum’ Jewish world.

All this is part of the plan to try to sideline Shuvu Banim as extremists, and then to paint anyone who would also try to join in with any protests or illegal visits to kevarim with the same poisonous brush.

It’s called ‘divide and conquer’, and the evil Edomite who run the world have been doing this for eons.

Except now…. It’s not quite going to plan.

====

No-one in Israel believes in, or cares about all the fearmongering around the pretend ‘second wave’.

As the economic reality continues to bite, more and more people are coming to understand that the government and MSM lied to them – and continues to lie to them – in a very big way.

The numbers of people prepared to just lap up the propaganda and roll over is reducing exponentially with each day that passes.

At the same time, the shine has also come off Trump, and his ‘peace plan’ for so many of the people who believed he was the ‘Edomite messiah’, mostly thanks to gorging themselves on the psy-ops Q-anon site, which was a masterpiece in taking out the opposition to any ‘New World Order’.

Just wait for Trump to unveil himself as the messiah! Hold on, people, don’t worry! Trump’s got your back!! He’s not a pawn of all the billionaires like George Soros, who he literally owed hundreds of millions of dollars to when his building empire went bust a few years back! Sure, they strangely forgave that debt, but not because Trump was bought and sold to be the ‘front man’ to divert attention – and reactions – away from the globalist elite’s plans to take over the world!! No, sirree.

But now, the Edomite sun is about to be eclipsed by the Jewish moon.

Things are changing.

There’s a big shift underway, on so many levels.

It’s Rosh Chodesh Tammuz – the 1st of Tammuz – tomorrow night.

That’s the yarhtzeit of Yosef HaTzaddik.

It’s still invisible to the naked eye, but the Jewish moon is starting to wax strong again.

And transformation is coming to the world.

I know it’s bad to look at Facebook.

I know, believe me I know. That’s why I have a fake account that lets me just dip in and out when I need to go and look up things for research purposes.

So yesterday, I was doing some research that took me to a Facebook page, and then I noticed a picture of a young woman with striking red hair and a sad face under all her makeup – Shiran – and something compelled me to look at it.

Man, I got so sad, so fast.

====

As I scrolled through all her selfies from the last five years, I saw how a beautiful, religious, ‘edgy’ girl went totally off the rails.

It started in small ways. The skirt was still black, but way too tight. Then it got shorter. Then the tops started revealing more and more cleavage.

Then, some big ‘break’ happened, and the hair got dyed a vampy red.

Then the makeup went up a level, with kohl-ed eyes and dark red lipstick to match.

And the clothes continued to disappear.

And then the first tattoo showed up – something ‘subtle’, just a signature on one wrist.

And now, five years later, she’s totally covered in tattoos up and down all her limbs, and a few other places, too.

I know this, because the last ‘selfies’ posted up were artistically-shot pictures of Shiran running through some grass with her tattoo-ed butt cheeks hanging out of her cut off shorts. P*rnography, pretty much, but so artfullll….

====

What can I tell you?

My heart broke.

The last few months, I’ve been getting to know quite a few of these ‘souls of tohu’, these big souls that can’t really fit into the world as it’s currently configured, and so they want to destroy, and tear it down to its foundations.

At their root, these kids, these teens, these young people are really only good.

They want that ideal version of planet earth so badly, it literally pains them to have our current flawed version. So they lash out, and they try to do anything they can to minimize the pain of simply being alive in our current, difficult reality.

And the first person they lash out at is themselves.

What are tattoos, after all, except bruises of the soul, publically displayed for all to see?

====

Honestly?

I’m still heartbroken about all this. There are so many kids like this, who are growing up in homes – frum or not – and falling straight to the bottom of the world. And everything is being documented with selfies on Facebook and Instagram.

I can’t help but wonder, if there was no Facebook page to post all this amateur p*rn up on, and no Smartphone to take pictures of the ‘latest’ self-mutilating tattoo, and no fake Facebook friends to egg-on all this self-destructive behavior with little red hearts and ‘thumbs up’ emojis, would it still be happening?

Would Shiran have transformed so violently, from an off-the-derech girl to a tattoo-d vamp-call-girl-wannabe?

====

I find that question so painful.

This world is so hard.

So please, go and give you teens a big hug right now.

Tell them how good they are. Tell them how much you love them – even if they’ve already slipped, even if they’ve fallen. There is always a way back, there is always a stairway up and out of the muck – I learnt that from Rabbenu, and from Rav Berland.

But the first step is our love for our kids.

Turn that love on, whack it up to full volume and let it shine a path for your kid to return to their true selves, return to their souls, and return to God.

He wants everyone back.

Even Shiran.

====

As I was writing this, one of my kids told me she wanted to show me an ‘amazing’ video.

It’s called neshamot shel tohu – souls of chaos – and it depicts a little of what I’m writing about in this post. These lost young people, running through the streets of Jerusalem, smoking, drinking, hanging out in Mahane Yehuda. Acting out, because the world is just so painful to them. They are mamash the biggest neshamas.

The chorus says:

Neshamot shel tohu

Machapsot ca’av

Bishvil l’argish mashu

English:

Souls of chaos, looking for ‘pain’, just so they can feel something.

What can I say?

I started crying again.

====

====

UPDATE:

Here’s an English translation of the lyrics:

Souls of ‘chaos’

Looking for ‘pain’

Just in order to feel something

Only so they can feel something

==

I got used to this now

Prisoner of the cycle

Scared to come close

‘Diseased’ and frightened

Knots and more knots in the heart

I want [to come closer] but don’t know how

==

A scared boy

Angry at the world

He runs away to each place

And doesn’t understand where he’s even going

To love from close up, it’s still not possible

There is a ‘ruach sayera’ (storm wind)

==

Shards of light from those days

Broken vessels are wandering around

Thirsty, angry

Broken-hearted because of other people

The smallness of ‘skin’

The separation between light and light

The heart is so very sensitive

It’s hard to endure the world

==

So if you are wandering around

With a hungry heart

Know something:

The buried treasure is within your own deepness

This is amazing.

A mainstream media personality – Tucker Carlson – actually tells the truth about what is going on about COVID-19 and the deceitful lockdowns, and all the lies the politicians and Bill Gates-funded civil servants and health officials have been telling about what’s been going on the last 4 months.

Every time I put more of the Rav’s prayers up, or get more of his teachings out there, I immediately notice that the ‘world of lies’ get’s a big puncture.

Of course, we aren’t at the knock out punch just yet…. but it’s definitely starting to teeter-totter. With people like Tucker Carlson calling it out in the USA, and even in Israel, where the media functions directly as a (paid….) add-on for the government propaganda machine, we are starting to see articles like this, on ynet:

What the state is hiding about the coronavirus outbreak:

Opinion: Investigation of factual data from around the world and mathematical projections show the government assertion that it saved us from a terrible plague is nothing more than illusion

==

While over on the awful Jpost, every propaganda piece they try to turn out now about COVID-19 blowing up ‘exponentially’, and ‘second waves’, and how infectious, and deadly it all is, and how very important it is to wear facemasks 24/7 blah blah blah – is being met by literally hundreds of comments from people openly accusing them of lying, fearmongering and spreading propaganda.

Just take a look at this screenshot, from THIS article:

screenshot of comments

====

While we’re on the topic of the Jpost, they keep changing the posts as they go along, and also adding and deleting comments, and fiddling with the content to try to keep ahead of all the criticism they are getting.

For example, this article was originally called:

https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/coronavirus-outbreak-11-employees-of-sourasky-medical-center-infected-631631

But now, they’ve ‘updated’ the headline to this far more scary sounding bit of fearmongering propaganda:

‘Gov’t failing to stop second wave of coronavirus’

Bill Gates!!! Cut the JPost another big cheque, they are doing a FABULOUS job of churning out non-stop propaganda to soften the public up for your mandatory vaccines!

To be clear, 300 people with an average age of 102 died in the first wave in Israel, over 4 months. (Remember, 131 people die in Israel EVERY SINGLE DAY, on average.)

So if the ‘second wave’ is as ‘bad’ as the first well, ahem, I think we’ll all just take our chances.

And btw, most people aren’t wearing masks properly, if at all, social distancing has almost NEVER happened anywhere in Israel (except down by the Kotel, where for a time it was being rigorously enforced by the local kappos) – so any infection that was going to happen, happened many weeks ago, already.

This new ‘spike’ is just because they started testing thousands and thousands of extra people.

And everyone knows it.

====

So now, over to Tucker to tell it how it is in the USA:

(Not 100% shmirat eynayim friendly)

====

The Rav said many years ago that they would have to tell more and more lies, until they couldn’t tell any more, before the world of truth could finally begin.

I think we’re almost there.

====

This morning, I had a change of plans.

Initially, I was planning to go to Ein Mabua again, to trek through the sparking stream there (while trying to dodge the Arabs and women in revealing bikinis….)

I’m digressing here, but if I learnt one thing at the beach in Palmachim a little while ago, it’s that seeing so much flesh everywhere is actually pretty disturbing, on a number of levels. We aren’t animals, after all, we are created in the tzelem Elokim, the image of God, but it’s very hard to remember that, when someone is shaking their cellulite all over the place.

Anyway, so last minute I had a change of heart, and decided I should hike somewhere ‘holy’ instead.

The weather was gorgeous – sunny, but not too hot and blowing a strong breeze – so I headed off to where Dan ben Yaakov and Shimshon the Gibor are buried, near the Eshtaol forest off Route 44.

I used to go there a lot when I lived in Yad Binyamin, but I don’t go so much these days, not least because the Government wrecked the yeshiva that Rav Arush built there a few years’ back, and all that’s left now is the small, one-roomed kever.

But I was in the mood to hike AND pray, so it’s a perfect destination for that.

====

I get there, and the first thing I saw was the mess, everywhere.

People had been BBQ-ing, I don’t know what, used skewers and plastic cups and empty coke bottles all over the place. So I spent the first 2 minutes stuffing whatever I could into an empty plastic bag.

It’s not totally the fault of the BBQ-ers: when the government got rid of the yeshiva, they also got rid of the bins (and the toilets….) so there is no-where to throw the garbage away.

I went in for 5 minutes, sighed a deep sigh, I’m not quite sure why, then headed off up the track to where Shimshon the Gibbor is buried at the top of a hill about a 50 minute walk away.

====

I’m doing my hitbodedut, chatting to God about this and that, when suddenly I start thinking about an awful article that appeared on Jpost yesterday, that involved the Rav.

Literally, as my mind flits to that subject, two big white dogs appear on the path in front of me – guarding the boundary of the illegal beduin farmers up on the mountain – and start barking.

Usually, I just stand still and they go away.

This time, the more ‘still’ I stood, the closer they got, and the more aggressive they got, until one of them actually tried to bite me. I was wearing a long dress, so he bit holes in that, instead of my leg, until a beduin teenage boy finally appeared and threw a stone at the dog, to call him off.

Strangely, I wasn’t so scared.

I think that’s because I knew why it happened, while it was happening. Rabbi Nachman teaches in Sefer HaMiddot that:

“One who gossips or who listens to it should be thrown to the dogs” (#17, Gossip and Slander)

Uhoh.

All I did was read the yucky piece on Jpost – and here God was showing me just how dangerous it is, to get involved in even passively reading slander about the Gadol HaDor, even when you don’t believe any of it.

It was a very strong lesson.

====

I get to Shimshon HaGibbor, climb the mountain, admire the view, do a bit of praying and writing in my hitbodedut book, then come down again.

At the bottom, in a forested glade, there’s a middle-aged man sitting behind a table spread with drinks and things to eat.

This is the hachnasat orchim stop for Shimshon HaGibbor! He tells me, with a big smile on his face.

Come have a cup of tea, or some water, or a boureka!

The grave of Shimshon is literally in a forest in the middle of nowhere, so I’m impressed – and confused – as to what he’s doing here.

====

We get chatting, and he tells me his name is Levi Yitzhak – he’s a descendant of the Berditchever Rebbe, with Chabad tendencies.

He tells me he was doing hachnasat orchim at Kever Dan for a long time, but now, he feels he should do it at the grave of Shimshon instead now.

There’s a lot of kids at Dan’s kever doing drugs now, he tells me, the smile fading from his face.

I don’t know what to tell him.

I think to myself, that wasn’t happening when Rav Arush had a branch of his yeshiva there…

But the government prefers drug addicts to yeshiva bochurs, so what can we do?

====

I have some tea – he has a whole gas stove set up there – and light two candles for Shimshon and his father, Manoach.

Then, Levi Yitzhak tells me that he’s organising a Shabbat in the forest by Kever Shimshon ‘for normal people’.

This week.

Do I want to come?

I don’t want to burst his bubble by explaining to him that I probably don’t fit his ‘normali’ criteria, so I take his phone number, thank him for the tea, and head back down the track.

I go the long way around the beduin camp, just to make sure, but there are no dogs on the way back, because now I got the message.

Be really careful about the lashon hara, Rivka, really, really careful!

====

The generation has the face of a dog.

We spend so many hours a day stuffing our eyeballs with all the puke-making headlines from the corrupt media, and the spiritually tamei bloggers and Facebook posters.

Hashem should have mercy.

====

I’m not going to the forest for Shabbat (I like to have real toilets, spoiled Anglo that I still am).

But it made me feel so happy that there are other people in Israel who are also pinging off that ‘crazy-holy’ vibe.

Slowly, it seems more things are returning to ‘normal’ here now, although that by itself is so strange, if I’m honest.

How can we go through everything we’ve gone through since February, and have things go back to ‘normal’?

====

When I was walking up and down that beach in Palmachim, I knew there would have to be another dose of madness, and probably soon, because God doesn’t want to lose a single soul to crass materialism and that empty, secular life.

So, He has to shake things up again.

Probably soon.

And it won’t be how it was last time, because God never does the same exact thing twice.

In the meantime, I sit here trying to straddle ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’, and ‘geula’ and ‘galut’, and ‘change’ and ‘limbo’ again.

It’s not so easy, is it?

I don’t know if I’m coming or going. But this I do know: I need to savor every second of happiness God is sending me right now, and to be grateful for every last bit of freedom, and comfort, and food and health and gashmius, and ruchnius.

Because who knows what tomorrow brings?

Does all this ‘taking the knee‘ stuff sound familiar to you?

Cos it sure as heck sounds familiar to me.

In biblical times, whenever the nation of Israel was going to go out to war, there would be a selection process whereby those that had ‘knelt to the Baal’ were disqualified for service.

On a similar note, doesn’t all these statues – pessalim, idols – being smashed up, defaced and toppled all over the place remind you of something else?

Like, what happened in ancient Egypt during the 10 plagues, when the nation’s idols were destroyed one after another – except for the Baal Tzafon, that was left standing right until the end?

We appear to be in the middle of a modern day 10 plagues.

Over the last week or so, there have been a series of 6.0+ earthquakes fanning out across the globe.

Dutchsinse got taken off the internet, because the powers that be didn’t want him educating the population about how geomagnatic phenomena and seismicity really works, so I can’t give you any ‘predictions’ for a big one, at least not from him.

But, I guess I don’t have to, because Rabbi Pinto told us many weeks ago that a big earthquake is coming soon:

====

The kabbalists have told us that we are now in the middle of the 9 months of the ‘foreign rule’ that precedes Moshiach’s coming.

It’s all happening, folks.

====

One last thought for today, then I have to get on with finishing another book project for the Rav, BH.

There’s a big discussion going on about aliya right now, given the mounting violence etc we are witnessing worldwide, and the fact that orthodox Jews are now being stabbed in the head in London, etc.

I live in Israel. I’ve struggled to live in Israel, financially, and socially, and in many other ways, too.

But I still know that living in Israel is 100% a gift from Hashem, and that when people are ‘stopped’ from making aliya, it’s because they are the subject of large spiritual judgments, above.

I’m not here because I have more emuna, more foresight, more bravery, more wisdom than anyone else.

I’m here because God decided to give me and my family a gift 16 years ago, and to push us out of the UK and into the Holyland.

For me to think that I somehow got here under my own steam, or because of my own spiritual merit is totally laughable. I was really not such a nice person when we made aliyah, and my emuna was practically non-existent. We got here because God basically scared the pants off me via a series of nightmares, and then helped me to buy a much bigger house here, than I could have afforded in the UK at that time.

There was a very big carrot, and a very big stick.

What there wasn’t, was a person with great middot or a burning desire to move to Israel for spiritual reasons.

I can’t claim any credit for moving here, it was all God’s doing.

I guess what I’m really trying to say is that if God could get me to Israel, then He can certainly do that for everyone else, too.

====

All this upheaval is a present, to clear away the judgments that have been preventing Jews from coming to Israel.

The single best way to help people to make aliya – including ourselves! – is to:

  1. Pray
  2. Make some sincere teshuva
  3. Connect to the true tzaddikim, and their Torah and advice, including Rebbe Nachman and Rav Berland.

No-one got out of Egypt without Moshe Rabbenu.

No-one.

And no-one got into Eretz Israel if they were still bad-mouthing other Jews, speaking badly of them, and going against the Tzaddik HaDor.

I’ve written about this subject elsewhere, below, I’ll attach a few posts on the subject.

But let me end with this snippet from Rabbenu, which goes to the heart of the question of whether moving to Israel and living here is really enough, to be ‘saved’ from the chevlei Moshiach all by itself:

The motive for making the journey to Eretz Yisrael should be purely spiritual: to draw closer to God. A person who goes there with this as his aim will certainly benefit….On the other hand, if a person’s motive has nothing to do with devotion to God and cleansing himself of his evil, then what help will Israel be to him? The land will vomit him out…

====

I am sure that there will still be an opportunity for people to move here, even though most of us still haven’t woken up to the unpleasant fact that the State of Israel has closed its borders to Jews abroad – and from what I can see, this seems to be part of a deliberate strategy to stop people making aliya.

Otherwise, why not just test anyone who flies here for Corona first, why not just put them up in the empty hotels and Air BnBs for 2 weeks of quarantine?

As that Cypriot billionaire showed us all last week, where this is a will to get people into Israel, there was always a way, even at the height of the lockdown here.

====

The Rav said many months ago that people will come on boats – and I don’t think he was referring to private yachts.

He’s talking about luxury liners that can hold thousands of people. At some point, the penny will drop, and Jews abroad will realise that every word the Rav says should be explored in total seriousness.

But even if that’s not the case, and people don’t make it here – God has a plan for them.

As long as someone is working on coming closer to God, and working on their emuna that whatever God does, it’s for the best, ultimately they will end up in a good place. That doesn’t necessarily mean getting to Israel, or even coming through the whole process alive.

====

There are no guarantees for anyone, wherever they happen to live, except this:

If we accept God’s will for us with emuna, then whatever happens down here, live or die, aliya or not, our souls will end up in a very, very good place.

And that’s really the whole point, hard as that can be for us to swallow.

We all remember the stories of the chassidim in World War II who danced into the gas chambers, because they knew that their souls were going straight to the highest places in shemayim.

And we all remember those reshaim in Israel, all those Labour Zionists, and others, who survived the war and even held prestigious jobs running the country for decades.

Where did their souls end up?

====

So, take courage dear reader. Wherever you live, you can continue to do God’s will sincerely, and if you get the chance to move here – take it! And if you don’t, your emuna is what is really going to count, at the end of the day.

Rav Berland has explained more than once that we all have to die before techiat hametim can occur, even if just for a second.

So trust God, remember that the SOUL is what really matters, not the body, and get as close as you can to Rav Berland and Rebbe Nachman’s Torah.

Because no-one got out of Egypt and into the Holy Land unless they were following Moshe Rabbenu and listening to the Tzaddik HaDor

Even if they already happened to live in Israel.

UPDATE:

I just noticed something interesting:

Black Lives Matter = BLM.

Well, it looks like things are already moving.

This morning the bhol haredi and rotter ‘news’ sites carried a story that the former head of the Tel Aviv –Yaffo Beit Din, Rabbi Nissim Ben Shimon, had published a strong letter decrying the contravention of Torah law that occurred in the recent psak din handed down against Rabbi Berland, in Bnei Brak.

Before I translate the story, let’s back up and give some more background.

====

The cholkim, that small group of unfortunate people within Meah Shearim Breslov who have been part of the ‘anti Rav Berland’ movement for three decades, already, were the ones who instigated the Beit Din.

They are experts at playing on people’s innate prejudices and arrogance, and have a lot of unholy siyatta dishmeya in presenting people with exactly what they want to hear.

Hey, media people, you want to believe that all chareidim are abusers?! Here’s a great story for ya….

Hey, dati leumi people, you want to believe that all chareidi rabbis are corrupt and out of touch with reality? Here’s a great story for ya….

Hey, Litvak people, you want to believe that all chassidim belong to cults, with Rebbes who act like a modern-day Shabtai Tzvi?! Here’s a great story for ya….

And so on, and so forth.

====

So, more than 18 months ago, the Rav’s persecutors went to a Beit Din in Bnei Brak with pronounced ‘anti Breslov’ tendencies, and told them exactly what they wanted to hear.

There was only one problem:

The Beit Din was not conducted according to the halacha, on a number of counts, the most notable of which include:

  • There was only the testimony of ONE witness to go on, the same false witness that also told the Israeli police exactly what they wanted to hear.
  • Rav Berland himself was never called upon to testify.
  • The verdict was delivered when the Rav was in prison, and couldn’t appear before the Beit Din.

There are more discrepancies too – I have a 3 page document from a first-hand witness that attended the proceedings in person, that lists them all, which I haven’t got around to translating yet – but these three alone should underline that whatever actually happened, that Beit Din in Bnei Brak was apparently not operating in accordance with basic halacha.

How shocking.

====

So then, the cholkim being the cholkim, they weren’t content with just perverting justice by one senior Beit Din, and then coercing two other senior Beit Dins to sign on to that pervasion of justice. They wanted even more dayanim and senior rabbanim to sign on to the psak din that they created out of whole cloth.

And that’s where they came unstuck.

Because some of those other dayanim and rabbanim actually decided to do their homework, and to ask for details of the judgement first-hand, from the people who were meant to have made it, before appending their signatures.

And that’s where the wheels have started to come off the bus, big time.

Because the more these sincere rabbanim started probing the judgment against Rav Berland, and asking for the information and facts it was based upon, the more it became clear that the initial Beit Din had not been operating according to even basic halacha.

How shocking!

====

Some of these rabbanim and dayanim felt so upset by what had occurred, they asked the original Beit Din to retract their ruling against Rabbi Berland, or at least to put out a letter clarifying how their Beit Din arrived at their conclusions – or else, they would put out their own letter, to inform the public of what had happened.

What can we say?

When people’s pride are on the table, and when their status is at stake, it can be very hard to back down from the tree, or to maneuver out of the corner you painted yourself into.

Admitting we made a mistake is one of the hardest things in the world, regardless of who we are.

And when we’re considered to be someone with status and influence, who is meant to be upholding Torah law for literally hundreds and thousands of communities across the world…. Well. Things get kinda complicated, really fast.

So, with that introduction out the way, here’s a free translation of what appeared on the bhol haredi website today, which you can read for yourselves in the original Hebrew HERE.

====

Over the last two weeks, the psak din written about the matter concerning the leader of the Shuvu Banim community, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, has been publicized. It was put out by a special Beit Din established on behalf of the central batei din undersigned by gedolei hadayanim in Israel.

It told the community to distance themselves and to guard themselves from him [i.e. Rav Berland]. This was after a year and a half of examining witnesses and complainants….

[Rivka note: As there was only one ‘witness’, it truly boggles the mind what they were actually doing for a year and a half. Let’s continue.]

====

Now, one of the previous Ravads (Rosh Av Beit Din) of Tel Aviv-Yaffo, and Ravad of the Badatz ‘Netzer Aharon’, haGaon Rabbi Nissim ben Shimon, has written a letter raising a number of questions about the published ruling.

In that letter…the dayan and gaon Rabbi Nissim ben Shimon writes that one of the askanim (people involved with the case – i.e. one of the Rav’s persecutors) turned to him, to ask him to add his signature to the psak din, and because of this, [Rav ben Shimon] decided to delve into the details of the ruling, to clarify and check the truth of the matter.

He said that it’s not his way to add his signature to a psak din that he hadn’t clarified himself.

Rav ben Shimon recounts that he turned to two of the dayanim who signed on the psak din, and asked to hear from them on what grounds they’d decided to put out the psak din, and they avoided telling him anything at all about the testimony and the proceedings that occurred at the Beit Din.

One of these two dayanim referred him to the third dayan, the gaon Rabbi Sriel Rosenberg, and in conversation with him, told him [i.e. Rabbi ben Shimon] that the psak was written on the back of “testimony from the mouth of one man, who testified what he testified.”

[Rivka note: this is the same, infamous, false witness that proved so useful to the Israeli police, too.]

====

In response to this, Rabbi ben Shimon told him that he couldn’t add his signature to this psak, that recounts that it was based on testimonies [i.e. in the plural, not just the say-so of one man. Apart from anything else, Jewish law requires there to be at least two witnesses.]

In response to this, the gaon Rabbi Sriel Rosenberg replied that: “I didn’t ask you to sign it.”

====

[Skipping a couple of pars, where it talks about the other rabbis who signed on to this psak din. You can go and read it yourself, if you want. The story then continues by describing how Rabbi Shimon Badani also originally appended his signature to the psak din – but then changed his mind, after hearing from Rabbi ben Shimon, what had really happened.]

====

After the clarification done by the gaon Rabbi Nissim ben Shimon, [Rabbi Badani] added his signature to his [i.e. Rabbi ben Shimon’s] letter. And then added in his own handwriting:

“I see the letter of the famous gaon and rabbi, and I’m flabbergasted. And according to this, I signed on the psak din, [against Rav Berland] which really pained me, and now I take back what I wrote. It’s fitting [for me] to worry about the yeshiva and the kollel, that it shouldn’t collapse, chas v’shalom.

[Rivka note: I think Rav Badani is saying that the shock of discovering that the proceedings that occurred in the Beit Din in Bnei Brak against Rabbi Berland weren’t done according to even basic halacha could be profoundly disturbing to many people in the Torah world – as indeed, it should be.]

The implications of this are enormous.

====

Here ends my free translation, although the story continues to describe how Rav Badani then showed up in Jerusalem a couple of days ago, together with Rabbi Yehuda Sheinfeld, to pay a visit to the Shuvu Banim community in Jerusalem, to strengthen them, and to explain why Rabbi Berland is being persecuted.

You can hear what he had to say in the video below (in Hebrew).

We’ll leave it there for now.

But things are certainly starting to move again.

It’s ok, it’s normal, it’s human.

But, it’s also not so helpful to keep that state of mind for long, because it very quickly spirals down into apathy and despair, and when that happens, I stop doing anything useful and just want to stay in bed all day.

As well as making an effort to get out of the house and to visit kivrei tzaddikim and other places, I’ve discovered that regular doses of Rabbi Berland’s torah and prayers can snap me out of my negative mood almost instantly.

Like today, for example, I woke up with more of the whingy blahs, inspired by the corrupt Israeli police flagging down cars all over Jerusalem yesterday just because they can, and intimidating the public into wearing face masks by handing out loads of fines.

Never mind there is zero science showing face masks prevent transmission of COVID-19, and lots of science showing they harm healthy people who are being forced to wear them for long periods of time.

Never mind that the number of people dying from ‘corona’ is practically zero in Israel, as you can see for yourselves, on the Worldometer website:

To claim we are in the middle of a second spike, to claim this is a ‘pandemic’ at all, is so farcical, so untruthful…. and at least for me, profoundly depressing, because so many people are still buying the lies.

Sigh.

So anyway, the whingy blahs sometimes take over.

That happened this morning, and that’s why I’m sitting here typing this in pyjamas, before I cracked open my morning brachas.

When I’m upset with how God is running the world, it can get hard to pray.

But then, I headed over to Rav Berland’s site, and I read this:

https://ravberland.com/5058-prayer-to-be-happy-with-what-we-have/

And I said it.

And then, I started to feel better.

Here’s the translation, below:

====

Master of the world, who can do anything, grant us the merit to always be happy with our lot, because only that really means to be truly wealthy.

And to not to fall into poverty, G-d forbid, because poverty is only in the mind, and any feeling of poverty is a denial of the kindness of Hashem, because then a person is not happy with his lot.

Therefore, it’s a mitzvah to always be happy in every single situation without stopping for a moment.

For even in a situation that appears bad it is always the best possible, because, “Hashem is good for all, and his mercy is over all of his creation,” and Hashem never does anything bad for us ever, because the good and merciful father only does good for his children, and even when he gives them a punishment, its only out of his great mercy to raise them on to the path of the king.

Master of the world, who can do anything, grant us the merit to always see that You are only doing good for us and we should never fall into denial, G-d forbid.

We should only thank you for every single breath and for every single movement at every single minute and at every single second that we are alive and breathing, us, our wives, our sons, our daughters, grandsons and granddaughters.

Please G-d, take us out of the trait of complaining, that we always cry a worthless cry over nothing, over things that are no big deal, that their root is absolute good.

And even when we don’t see this good, truthfully it is only good, because You are only good and give good to all.

One of my correspondents asked me this, over email:

Have a question,was looking for your take on it…In Israel and some States in the US where they’ve been re-opening have been reporting new cases and possibly new hospitalizations…Other hand you have a country like New Zealand who it seems like lifted a lot to all of their lockdown orders(And is Covid Free theyre reporting)….How do you make sense of it vs with what we know that it ended Pesach night.

Here’s what I think, for what that’s worth:

  1. COVID-19 was a ‘plague’ sent by Hashem, specifically to get the Jews of the world to wake up and make teshuva, in whatever way you understand that. The places where there are more Jews are the places where there has been more of an issue, generally.
  2. The kabbalists told us that COVID-19 came because people were speaking badly of Rav Berland and slandering him. This so-called ‘second wave’ was caused directly by the Bnei Brak beit din ruling against the Rav, based on the same old lies that have been repeatedly disproven.
  3. There WAS a disease that we’ll call ‘COVID-19′ that WAS meant to kill millions and millions of people – 65 million people, at least, as per the pandemic planners’ own assessments. The Rav sweetened this, and the potentially fatal DISEASE itself went into retreat, starting Seder Night.
  4. What we are dealing with now is COVID-19 propaganda. There is nothing at all to suggest that COVID-19 is any more dangerous than annual flu, or any more infectious, and just because there are new cases – so what? The real stats to pay attention to are the number of people who are dying from it, or that could die from it. They have shrunk to essentially zero.
  5. People believe COVID-19 propaganda, because at the soul level they are disconnected from Hashem. Hashem’s seal is truth, but if you’re disconnected from Hashem, you have no idea what’s really ‘true’ and what isn’t.
  6. The more people make teshuva – especially about slandering the Rav – the more God will open their eyes to what is true and what is false, and the more they will see through the COVID-19 propaganda. There’s a REASON that face masks and gloves are all over the chareidi world right now, and it’s not just because the Government targeted them for punitive quarantine measures. Indulge in lashon hara = wear your facemask 24/7, and believe all the COVID-19 propaganda.

====

There’s more I could say, but that will do for now, and I said a lot of this before anyway, here:

====

BH, we’ll all continue to make some real teshuva, and to work on our bad middot, which for me at the moment continues to be working on Azamra, or seeing the good in my fellow Jews, and trying to uproot all the anger and yeoush that can still flood up.

It’s work, man.

But that’s the reason we are all down here.

I spent a lot of today on the beach with a good friend (and her baby son) who got cabin fever from being locked down for 3 months.

She is a ‘beach’ person (or at least was, in her former life, before making teshuva and having a lot of kids back-to-back), so we went to Palmachim beach. I had my ‘super-tznius’ swimming costume, she had her ‘modest swim dress’, and we were all set.

Honestly?

I didn’t like Palmachim very much. It was beautiful, but the waves were for surfers, not bathers, and the beach was full of hairy (men…), fat (women…) secular types, many of whom reminded me, in the strongest possible terms, why cellulite is totally unattractive.

Even when they are burnt brown, wobbly bottoms being bifurcated by stretch lycra and hairy-rug-eight-month-pregnant stomachs (on men…) are just not attractive.

Please pardon me, for stating the obvious.

But my friend was loving the ability to just relax on the beach quietly for a couple of stolen hours, so I just kind of walked up and down observing humanity and pondering on how sad my life would be if THIS was all I had in it.

====

Sure, it’s fun to bat around a hard black ball for a few minutes.

Sure, when the waves aren’t so strong that they can take your legs out from under you even when you are standing out of the water it’s fun to jump the waves for an hour or two.

But as a group of middle-aged hi-tech execs set up their yom kef behind me, all edgy tattoos and cut-off jeans, and expensive-looking grapes from the cool box, and even more expensive dyed hairdos on the women – I suddenly realised that the beach life is actually so empty.

That was useful. Very useful.

Because in case you haven’t noticed, I roared out of lock down with a serious mid-life crisis.

For a month, I was seriously considering learning how to ride a motorbike, and then toying with buying a pink moped. And I’ve bought my weight in new clothes the last 3 weeks. And I’ve barely had a day in the house, because I had a panicked feeling that I was going to get locked down again, and there is so much I haven’t done yet.

So many streams I haven’t paddled in, so many beaches I haven’t visited, so many natural beauty spots I haven’t seen….

Now, after almost 3 solid weeks of driving literally all over Israel pretty much every day, it’s finally starting to wane.

This morning’s experience, where I watched a bunch of expensively-dressed, miserable secular people trying to cover up all their anxiety with ‘opinions’ about Covid -19 and edgy tattoos and loud red lipstick has made me so very grateful that I spent the last 15 years chasing after God, instead of money and status.

I think I have about another week of full-on tiyuling going on, maximum, and then I’ll be ready to knuckle down again, and to start writing again here properly.

And there is so much to write about.

====

Like, about the fact that the State of Israel is refusing to allow Jews into the country, unless they already have an Israeli passport.

Given that the diaspora is currently facing its worse crisis since WWII, with Warren Wilhelm Jr (aka Bill de Blasio) living up to his German ancestry over there in NYC, and given that the State of Israel has always made such a big deal of being the country Jews could flee to when it all hit the fan, what’s going on now is totally scandalous.

My siblings all have Israeli passports, but their spouses and children don’t.

They are literally being told that they can come – alone – but the rest of the family can’t.

This makes no sense, logically, and is also immoral.

So, expect to see a replay of ‘Exodus’ happening soon, but this time with the State of Israel’s navy operating in place of the evil British, trying to prevent ships with Jews from docking in Haifa port.

====

And then, there’s the forces of evil’s ‘reset’ agenda going on, with digital currencies and global population control, and all sorts of scary biology. COVID-19 was only ever the ‘excuse’ to role out this plan, it’s not real, it’s a fake pandemic.

But they ARE right, that a Great Reset is going to happen soon – probably by Tisha B’Av 5781.

It’s called the coming of Moshiach, and once Rav Berland finally gets out of prison, things are going to skyrocket.

====

And then, there’s all the stuff with the ‘peace’ plan for the Middle East, which I haven’t even touched on yet.

And then, I’m having the growing urge to pull together One in a Generation 3 – which MUST mean more fireworks are imminent, as those books always coincide with some big things shifting in the geula process.

And a lot more, besides. Like DARPA’s link to Operation Paperclip Nazis…

And how failing banks ushered in the last round of Nazis, prior to WWII.

And how there is really nothing new under the sun….

====

So patience, dear readers.

My mid-life crisis seems to be drawing to a close, and in around a week or so, I will be back at my keyboard, and back answering emails, and generally back with more enthusiasm and emuna again.

I just need to visit a few more kivrei tzaddikim, to recharge the batteries, and then we will be ready for take off again, and the holy, good ‘Great Reset’ that is going to usher in the geula for real.

I can’t wait.
