You may not know this, but I’ve been working on a big project for the Rav for months, now.
Long story short, it’s editing the translation of the Rav’s massive work in Hebrew, a practical guide to shalom bayit, for men only.
You can see Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, plus the ‘Prayers for Shalom Bayit – for men only’ HERE, on Amazon.
And the last few weeks, I have been under a self-imposed deadline to get the editing done on the final Part 3, which is a much longer book, by January 31.
Honestly, my initial plan was to take Part 3 at a relaxed pace, a page a day, and get out it out for around Pesach 2023.
But then in hitbodedut, I kept getting that little voice telling me I needed to ramp up production, and get the basic draft done way faster.
Why that date?
I don’t know.
But, I can tell you from previous experience, that every time these books of the Rav come out, something ‘big’ seems to be happening in the Jewish world, one way or another.
So I listened to that little voice, and I got the main draft done for February 2nd.
And then, it was just the very tiresome job left of sourcing all the quotes from Tanach in the footnotes, which when you have nearly 400 to track down, is actually not as easy as you might think.
Especially when you’ve been typing so much the balls of your hands are literally sore from too much contact with the keyboard.
Long story short, I finally got the last bit of the footnotes done at exactly 11pm yesterday.
I emailed it off to my husband, for him to do the last double-check and final edit, and then I started tootling around looking at news sites about the earthquake in Turkey.
Around 11:12pm, my chair suddenly made a weird, very sudden, and very short jolt backwards.
I decided it was time to go to bed.
Today, I read that it was a 3.5 that struck south of Ariel, on the border of the Shomron.
Just before yesterday’s earthquake, I got an email from someone who is sensitive to earthquakes, saying that she believes that there are still more to come, for our region.
Here’s a snippet of what she sent me:
I’m an earthquake sensitive, and I may be wrong, but this does not feel like it is over yet, and I dont mean in Turkey. I pray I am wrong, but I believe more is to come soon, a very large earthquake, possibly here.Soon meaning in the next 1-3 days.Just in case, it would be wise for people to take the twofold path (increase prayer and mitzvot while making practical preparations just in case)…. such as preparing a small bag with what they think they would like to have with them if they needed to leave the house quickly and wouldnt be returning for some time, and have it in an easily accessible place to grab if needed.
I have my earthquake ‘bug out bag’ from the Dutchsinse days, but I haven’t looked in it for a while.
I will take a look.
And, I will also just take a look, and figure out the best place to shelter, if some big quake does hit, God forbid.
But in the meantime, I had a second ‘visit’ from my mother-in-law (who’s dead…) back in early January that I didn’t mention here on the blog.
That time, she said a massive quake was going to hit Jerusalem, and she gave me a specific day in January 2023, when that was meant to happen.
Clearly, it didn’t.
Nothing, nada, nega nega torey.
So, I figured that either it was all just my over-active imagination – or that something was meant to have Jerusalem, but it got ‘sweetened’, like so many of the harsh judgements on Am Yisrael have been miraculously ‘sweetened’ over the last few years, if you only but pay attention, and see what is right in front of your face.
Barely a week ago, on January 30th, 2023, I put up this post:
It was a message from the Rav, urgently calling for 100,000 Tikkun Haklalis by Adar 13th – Ta’anit Esther.
That’s March 6th, 2023 in the secular calendar.
All those prayers – all that ’emunat tzaddikim’ – is sweetening things, radically.
This is what I’m talking about, when I say that if we join together and follow the dictates of the Gadol HaDor, who really can ‘see’ what’s coming down the pipe, things can turn around for the better in miraculous ways.
At least, for us.
That’s how it worked in Mitzrayim, and that how it’s going to work now, too.
Every time you are saying a Tikkun Haklali, you are making a real difference.
Of course, still prepare your bug-out bag, and scout out your ‘earthquake shelter’ spot, do your basic hishdadlut.
But don’t forget, that the real ‘basic hishdadlut’ of the Jewish people is to tear-up all these evil decrees totally, by turning directly to God, and having that conversation with Him.
Nothing happens for nothing.
Everything is coming from God, as a message, a discussion, a ‘hint’, about what we ourselves need to fix, work on and change.
The following videos come from the shiratdevorah website:
- Rav Fish (also mentioned by a commentator here – thanks! – explaining how the earthquakes tie in with the fall of ‘Gog and Magog’ (in Hebrew, but with English subtitles.
Watch that HERE, this below IS JUST A SCREENSHOT – don’t click on it.
Turkey was the centre of the Sabbateans, famously.
Turkey – really, Constantinople – was also the head of the Eastern Church for well over a millenia, and also, the seat of the Eastern part of the Roman Empire, which actually continued on well into the 15th century, just under the name of ‘Byzantium’.
Those Romans actually never went away.
They just decided to conquer the world in a more cunning, insidious way. More on that another time.
But ‘Turkey’, historically, holds a lot of the clues to what has gone so wrong in our modern world.
The second video shows the weird ‘blue flashes’ that lit up the sky in Turkey, literally five seconds before the ground started shaking:
Also yesterday, I got sent an email from a different reader, pondering if it was possible that the Turkey quakes were ‘man-made’.
They were referencing the ‘Vox Populi’ website HERE, that linked to this Tweet below, of ‘weird stuff in Turkey’s skies’:
Residents in the Turkish city of Bursa were stunned by this strange cloud formation in the sky Thursday morning.
The country’s Meteorological Directorate said it was a lens cloud formed by strong wind fluctuations over hills and mountains ⤵️ pic.twitter.com/XWUuFn2AbM

But then, I saw the date on this Tweet was January 20, 2023 – almost 3 weeks before the quake.
So, I have no idea what that thing in the sky was, but I can’t believe it was directly connected to the earthquake that happened almost three weeks later.
But those blue flashes are interesting.
The world is way more ‘electro-magnetic’ than modern science wants to let on.
This snippet comes from the Popular Science site HERE:
In study published in the January/February issue of the journal Seismological Research Letters, Thériault and colleagues pulled together reliable sightings of these [earthquake] lights since 1600, and found some strange similarities.
A total of 63 out of the 65 sightings occurred along nearly vertical faults. The researchers suggest that along these faults, the stress of rocks grinding against each other produces electrical charges, which can travel upward and interact with the atmosphere to create light.
“When the stress of an earthquake hits the rock, it breaks chemical bonds… creating holes of positive electrical charge. These ‘p holes’ [can flow] vertically through the fault to the surface, triggering strong local electric fields that can generate light,” according to Nature. The existence of these p-holes was proposed in 2003 by researcher Friedemann Freund, who wrote that “under normal conditions [these p-holes] are dormant, but when they ‘wake up’” during earthquakes, “the rocks begin to sparkle and glow.”
So, these weird lights do seem to be a ‘natural’ phenomena, connected to massive earthquakes.
Take a look at this video, from September 7, 2021 – the Second Day of Rosh Hashana!!! – when a huge quake struck Mexico City:
Or, try this one, also from Mexico City, when a 8.2 quake struck in 2017:
Even if it does turn out that HAARP / CERN / Uncle Klaus has a hand in these earthquakes after all, they are all ultimately just from Hashem.
God is literally trying to ‘shake us awake’.
People are staggering through life like spiritual zombies, desperately trying to block out the warning signs as every false institution, fake leader and false belief is being torn down before their eyes.
The whole world ‘flips over’, when geula finally happens, and the ‘world of lies’ crumbles away.
We are watching the metaphor made flesh.
And it’s only going to continue from here on in.
Let’s end with this, from the RavBerland.com site, that I wrote in March 2019:
Read this as part of your ‘basic hishtadlut’ on how to be prepared for what’s coming next.
And then, get your bug-out bag ready, and make sure it has at least one Tikkun HaKlali in it.

Thank you for everything you do Rivka.
I feel totally unable to read even one letter of a Tikun Haklali – don’t even want/care at the moment unfortunately. Made a small donation to the Rav instead…
These things go in cycles. As long as don’t give up in the middle, we’ll find our way back, in the end. I’ve also had weeks and months where the Tikkun Haklalis just weren’t happening. I think that’s part of everyone’s process….
But eventually, we’ll get the strength back to do it again.
Thank you for this. I was feeling like it was just me.
I know (because Rivka has posted it repeatedly) and believe that when we say these, we aren’t just saying it for the Rav, let alone for Hashem. They don’t “need” them, we need them, and in a very real way we’re doing them for ourselves.
I’ll probably get one in in the next day or two.
Maybe the reason the Rav has to call for 100,000 is so that those of us at the lowest levels will feel enough urgency to even squeeze out one. And if that’s the level we’re at, it’s best that we know that, and that Hashem is still with us.
“Lightning bolts lit the world, the earth trembled and roared.”
