You really want to know ‘what is going on’ right now?
Just look at all the accusations flying around.
And understand that Rule Number 1 with dealing with psychos of all stripes, big and small, public figures and private individuals, is this:
Whatever they are accusing others of, that is what they themselves are secretly doing, or want to do.
That doesn’t mean, necessarily, that the person they are accusing isn’t also doing those things.
They might be, they might not be.
But 100% for sure, whatever accusation is being made – the person doing the accusing is guilty of the same crime.
So, bear this in mind, as you read all these headlines, and all the ‘propaganda’ being churned out from all sides at the moment.
Of course, politically, but not only.
When I saw the Rav’s persecutors accuse him over and over and over of being a new ‘Shabtai Zvi’ years ago – that piqued my interest in the whole subject.
And lo and behold…. it turned out that all these persecutors descend directly from hardcore Sabbatean families, and have very tight links with the ‘secular’, Frankist State of Israel they pretend to hate and despise.
Try it out for yourself – you will learn some awesome things!
And, you’ll also come to realise that this is a no-fail mechanism for identifying the real psychos on all sides of whatever debate, discussion or issue you happen to be engaged with, both in your private interactions, and in the outside world.
The confusion and craziness is ratcheting up every day, Baruch Hashem.
That means the evil is very close to finally breaking apart….
But in the meantime, if you want to do something useful, instead of just ranting about corrupt politicians, corrupt bureaucrats, corrupt doctors, corrupt [fill in the blank] – here’s a few ideas.
Try making peace with some of the people in your own dalet amot who are currently upsetting you, or making you angry.
That’s how we really get ‘Peace in the Middle East’, and peace everywhere else – we start by making peace with:
- The people in our own dalet amot, especially family members
On Purim, I decided to make ‘Peace in the Middle East’ with one of my neighbors.
Three years ago, she cornered me in our local park and asked me if I was ‘vaccinated’.
(She clearly likes a good argument….)
And boy, did she get one.
She threw everything but the the kitchen sink at me, including calling me a ‘Covid murderer’ and ‘hater of Palestinians’.
(I don’t know how the two go together, but somehow they do, at least, for her.)
For the first year after that encounter, I was glaring daggers at her, and giving her aggressive ‘come at me’ vibes.
She used to see me coming, then run away.
Last year, I calmed down, not least because the masks disappeared, and this lady herself ended up with a serious bout of post-‘vaccine’ ‘Covid’, that took her out for weeks and weeks.
After that, she started looking at me in a different way, when we’d cross paths – no longer aggressive, but way more worried.
This year, I decided:
It’s time to make peace in the Middle East.
So, I took her a mishloach manot on Purim – and she was SO happy to have it!
(That effort was inspired by THIS post.)
Peace in the Middle East.
The Arabs are really not the main problem here….
So, try out the projection thing for yourself, see what you discover.
And if you really want to make a difference to the Holy Land, try these:
- Live here yourself.
- Buy property here – especially in the Shomron. (THIS company is putting up some gorgeous houses across the Shomron, some of which are even affordable.)
- Give charity to help your fellow Jew, in whatever way that speaks to you.
Most of my spare cash goes to the Rav and supporting Shuvu Banim – which brings so many blessings into my life, I can’t begin to count them.
But, you can also do things like this:
Support Honenu, which is providing legal representation to people like Amiram Ben Uliel, and so many of the hundreds of other Jews that are being held – indefinitely! – in ‘administrative detention’, even when there is zero evidence they have committed any crimes.
Or maybe, give some money to ‘Friends of Itamar‘, who are working hard to improve the infrastructure of Itamar, the yishuv that is closest to Huwara.
Or, find some other organisation that is doing stuff you believe in and support, to help Jews living in the Holy Land.
That’s how we really make a difference in this crazy world.
We start with ourselves, and watch that ripple effect for the good spread out wider and wider.
PS: If you are sitting there thinking that I’m ‘supporting a pedophile’, God forbid, or something similar, because Rav Berland is my Rav, here’s the low down on that:
The people who are persecuting the Rav are the ones connected to the pedophilia-practising Sabbateans that infest Meah Shearim, and many other ‘ultra orthodox’ conclaves, like Bet Shemesh.
These people are literally close family with the politicians and judiciary of the Frankist State of Israel, and they all descend from the same small group of Sabbatean families that were big followers of Shabtai Tzvi, and practise pedophilia as a result of some terrible, twisted ‘kabbalah’ about how you rectify the world.
This started with Jonathan Eybshutz, and has continued ever since.
And it’s not just in the chassidic world, most of the leaders of the Litvak world also come FROM EXACTLY THE SAME SABBATEAN FAMILIES.
That doesn’t mean all these people are Sabbateans and pedophiles today, God forbid.
But, it DOES mean that there are sick things going on all over the ‘ultra orthodox’ world, that are all being covered up.
When the Rav started shaking things up 40 years ago, and talking about personal holiness, and shmirat eynayim, and bringing sincere, God fearing baalei teshuva into the ultra orthodox world, these old-school Sabbateans went nuts.
Because, you can’t carry on raping and abusing children with impunity, when there are people around who know that’s bad and evil – and haven’t been ‘trained’ to keep their mouth shut and not question authority.
So then, these people went full out – with their Frankist family members in the State of Israel – to try to take the Rav out of the picture, and get his influence and community closed down.
It’s all about P-R-O-J-E-C-T-I-O-N.
Never forget that.
If you want the truth, ask God to show you.
And be prepared to hear what comes back.
There are no shortcuts here.

Boy oh boy.
I’m trying to get help to live closer to the Rav (as I mentioned in another comment, to come to Jerusalem) and getting the whole “it’s a cult!” treatment. b”h from gentle people who know better than to make my decisions for me.
I’m still in a position of not knowing fully. Of course, neither do they — they only know what they’ve heard — and they warn me that Shuvu Banim is a place where people don’t ask questions.
I don’t know! I’ve been to prayer with the Rav maybe a dozen times, haven’t really talked with people, certainly haven’t lived with people or even learned with people from the community, except one in Haifa (who really impressed me with his Gemara skills/middot). My instinct is to be cautious, make sure I have “backup” in case I need to leave and don’t know how…I don’t know where I’m going with this.
Yeah, I keep getting lots of information about lots of different things, not at all related to this subject, from people who are just ‘recycling’ whatever someone else sends them, or tells them.
Personally, I check into things all the time, and I ask lots and lots of questions. About everything and every one.
That’s how I draw the conclusions I draw, and I stand behind them – because they aren’t second hand ‘recycled’.
And if I don’t know first-hand, I keep my mind open, and I consider the possibility that even very good, very clever people can be fed nonsense information, or deliberate lies, and not even realise it.
They said Rabbi Berland was giving people drugs for money.
Then they ended up promoting the shots, to this day…
They said that Rabbi Berland hires people to beat up/murder those who disagree with him.
But that’s closer to what THEY do…
Yup, all just one big mirror…
I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO EMAIL YOU DIRECTLY AS FOR SOME REASON HA HA

I AM VERY PROUD OF YOU FINDING MORE PEACE IN YOUR LIFE
KEEP UP THE JOURNEY
