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.

BiLaaM.

There is nothing new under the sun.

This is how to get out of the gathering darkness.

Yesterday, I went up North again with my husband, for a break.

In keeping with the carpe diem idea that all we have is the next 24 hours – which is basically how a Jew is supposed to live their life, in any case, without taking a single second for granted – I have been out every day this week.

Sunday, I sat on a beach in Caesarea (fully clothed…) gathering beautiful pebbles.

Monday, I went down to the Baba Sali, and learned a very important lesson in avoiding harsh judgement of other Jews and hakpada.

Tuesday, I took my teenage girls to the separate beach in Rishon LeTzion, and had a blast jumping the waves for a couple of hours.

Then yesterday, I schlepped my husband to a gorgeous, almost deserted natural pool that’s part of the Lower Amud Stream.

====

When we got there, there were just two other frum men there – Americans – who left after half an hour, so we had the place to ourselves. We sat on a rock in the pool, debating whether the fat tadpoles underfoot where frogs or fish and discussing some of the latest Torah from Rav Berland.

After being locked down for almost three months, I have been encouraging my family to get out of the house as much as possible, and to not put off doing anything that’s important, like booking driving tests, or buying things that have been on the ‘to get’ list for a very long time.

All we have is today. Right now.

====

The toilets are going uncleaned, the sinks are unwashed, my house is half a tip – but who cares? There will be plenty of time to get everything back in order next time we are locked down again¸ which the Israeli government is patently angling to do.

Even though more and more people are waking up to the fact that we were misled over how dangerous COVID-19 actually is, and we’re still being misled over the ridiculous ‘rules’ for apparently ‘containing’ COVID-19, as continually stated by Israel’s PM:

====

====

Again, THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC BASIS for the rules on forcing healthy people to wear face masks 24/7, or for the ‘social distancing’ rule, which takes the biscuit for pseudo-scientific claptrap with absolutely no basis in reality.

And then, there’s the ominous insistence on ‘good hygiene’.

Why ominous? Because a lot of people don’t know this, but the Nazis – and the other eugenecists that held the same views as they did, in terms of getting rid of ‘degenerate’ human beings to ‘improve’ the human ‘species – were obsessed with ‘good hygiene’.

They called their eugenics theories by the euphemistic term ‘racial hygiene’ – and it led directly to the crematoria of Auschwitz.

====

====

I have a book called ‘From Darwin to Hitler: Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics and Racism in Germany’, which BH I will try to summarise soon in a future post. But in the meantime, this screenshot, above, from the Holocaust Encyclopedia tells a thousand words.

Deadly Medicine > Science as Salvation > The Biological State > Final Solutions > Murderous Racial Hygiene Programs

From 1933 to 1945, Nazi Germany carried out a campaign to “cleanse” German society of people viewed as biological threats to the nation’s “health.” Enlisting the help of physicians and medically trained geneticists, psychiatrists, and anthropologists, the Nazis developed racial health policies that started with the mass sterilization of “hereditarily diseased” persons and ended with the near annihilation of European Jewry.

====

How willfully blind would a person have to be, to not see the obvious parallels with what is occurring right now?

I know, it’s hard to believe the brains and the technology and the evil ‘ethics’ behind the Third Reich got transplanted into the heart of Western society via the secret service agencies, but that’s the truth.

And that ideology has been ‘evolving’ into what we see playing out today for over 70 years.

COVID-19 is straight out of the Nazi playbook. And the clues to the global eugenics agenda that is really behind it are literally all over the place – for anyone with eyes to see.

====

But that’s not what I want to really focus on today.

When we’re staggering around in this tremendous darkness, where it just seems to be getting heavier and heavier each moment, at least in some parts of the world, we need to focus our energy on finding the ‘light’ that is going to get us out of the problem.

And that light is the true Tzaddikim, and in particular, it’s Rebbe Nachman’s Torah, and Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s teachings and prayers.

====

Yesterday after the pool, we decided to detour to Tzalmon, to drive as close as we could get to the prison where Rav Berland is currently being held by the anti-Torah government which also has a long history of practicing ‘eugenics’ on its native population.

The Yemenite Children scandal – where the Israeli government sold kidnapped Yemenite children to the Nazis running the awful ‘MKULTRA’ programs, to be experimented on and tortured to death, is just one example.

My best guess is that Peres arranged that deal in order to get the nuke for Israel. In his twisted mind, that was probably an ‘ethical arrangement’…

But there have been many other abuses committed in the name of ‘Jewish eugenics’, most of which haven’t been properly documented.

Like the program to irradiate the heads of 100,000 Moroccan immigrant children with x-rays many hundreds of times in excess of the known safe levels, as part of another secret deal the Israeli government cut with the US army / Nazi-infested CIA / NSA.

You can learn more about that in this clip, below, that has English subtitles:

====

The early Zionists were obsessed with creating the ‘perfect Jew’, the ‘ideal Israeli’ – the parallels between this and what the Nazis were trying to do with their own Master Race eugenics program are sadly so obvious. The following quote comes from THIS article:

It’s hard to imagine now, but in 1944, six years after Kristallnacht, Lessing J. Rosenwald, president of the American Council for Judaism, felt comfortable equating the Zionist ideal of Jewish statehood with “the concept of a racial state — the Hitlerian concept.”

And they never gave up trying to implement it, behind the scenes.

What’s happening with the persecution of Rabbi Berland and the Torah world in Israel generally has to be understood in its proper ‘Jewish eugenics’ context. Once we take the blinders off, it’s obvious that the language being used by so many of the people in power in Israel is clearly reminiscent of the eugenicists who came up with the holocaust as their ‘final solution’.

====

Here’s a couple of quotes from the ‘From Darwin to Hitler’ book, and then let’s move on from the darkness, to the light:

“Many [eugenics-promoting German scientists] used Darwinian arguments to assign some humans to the category of ‘inferior’ or degenerate. Generally, they considered two main categories of people ‘inferior’: the handicapped and non-European races.

Since they were ‘inferior’, and since the death of the less fit in the struggle for existence will result in biological improvement, why not help evolution along by getting rid of the ‘inferior’?”….

“Rather than allowing such people to drain the precious, limited resources of the earth, [the eugenicist-promoting scientists believed] it would be better to kill them to make space for the healthy, vigorous and intelligent to flourish.”

====

Compare and contrast the above with these quotes:

This comes from here, Racing toward disaster: Israel’s unsustainable population bomb (2017)

The National Economic Council finally decided to weigh in on the issue in its August report, highlighting the dramatic increase among Haredi populations and hinting about possible ramifications for the economy. It would seem that not only environmentalists have come to recognize that present population patterns are unsustainable; economists are increasingly alarmed, as well. That’s because the bulk of local population growth today can be found among Haredi and Beduin families.

And this comes from here, Israel’s soaring population: Promised Land running out of room?

“Israel is on the road to an ecological, social and quality of life disaster because as the population density rises it becomes more violent, congested and unpleasant to live in and with absolutely no room for any species other than humans,” said Alon Tal, a professor at Ben-Gurion University’s Institutes for Desert Research and founder of the Green Movement party.

There’s a subtle, but disturbing similarity, no?

====

So, after we said a virtual ‘hi’ to the Rav in Tzalmon, we headed off towards Rashbi’s tomb in Meron, but before we got there, I noticed signs by the side of the road for the tomb of Havvakuk the Prophet. We turned off, headed down a short dirt track – and found there were a few other people at the tomb.

5-6 Breslovers, of various ages were there, eating food and one guy was playing the guitar.

He was playing it amazingly well. And singing a song about ‘geula coming now, if we just hang on one more day’. I stopped in my tracks, transfixed by what I was seeing and hearing.

My soul started to soar up – and it struck me that here, at Havvakuk HaNavi, there was currently way more life, and way more light, than by most places in the world, right now.

====

As I was listening to the guy totally rocking the kever with his acoustic guitar, it struck me that he sounded a little familiar. I asked my husband to ask him if he’d put out any CDs – and sure enough, he had. We had one. It’s one of my favorite disks and I bought it from the guy himself when he showed up at my door 10 years ago.

And now he was here, playing at Havvakuk the Prophet.

Two songs later, another car load of Breslovers pulled up, and one guy got out holding a massive speaker on his shoulder broadcasting the more standard techno-Na-Nach music.

It couldn’t hold a candle to the acoustic guitar, but it just reinforced the impression of life, vitality and happiness that really, you can only find by the True Tzaddikim right now.

====

On the way home, we also popped into Rashbi, and then Rabbi Meir Baal NaNess, where the facemask madness is half in force, and half being ignored.

I said some tikkun haklalis, and I just felt pretty happy and content.

Mostly.

Because I know the wider world is starting to burn, and I know that the darkness is becoming suffocating in so many ways right now.

But there is a way out of the problem, and that is to follow the light.

====

====

Follow the light, the teachings, the advice of Rebbe Nachman, and of Rabbi Berland, and it will lead you out of the darkness.

It will lead you to reconnecting to Hashem and your soul.

It will lead you to the Promised Land, in so many different ways.

And don’t wait too long to do that, because we only have today.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring.

But if we have the light of the True Tzaddikim to guide us, we’ll be in much better shape to deal with it, than anyone else on the planet, wherever they happen to live.

I know, how is that even possible, right?

But it’s interesting to see how more and more of the activity in the world is appearing obviously staged by the media.

Take all these race riots that are now happening across the USA, replete with police firing rubber bullets at journalists – live on air! – and even arresting a black reporter from none other than CNN – live on air! – while they continue to let the cameras roll.

Does that make sense to you?

Really?

Because it doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve seen plenty of footage of people being filmed doing things they didn’t want other people to see, and the first place they go is to the camera guy, with hands outstretched trying to obscure the picture.

But here, CO-IN-CI-DEN-TAL-LY, the police apparently arrest a black journalist from CNN – live on air! – solely for the ‘crime’ of being black. And the cameras continue to roll, while the CNN host back in the studio describes the ‘horror’ of what’s going to the ‘shocked’ viewers.

====

Watch the clip for yourself, it’s strangely shmirat eynayim friendly.

The subtext is clear: grab a wrench and go and bust up some shops, to protest the terrible racism and awful police!

====

Let’s be clear, I am not a big fan of the police anywhere in the world at this point. While individuals may be well-meaning, the institution of ‘police’ is corrupt to its core, and is increasingly just operating as the enforcement arm of tyranny and dictatorship.

Also, let’s be clear that people ARE racist. But not just white people. Black people, brown people, orange people – EVERY GROUP IN THE WORLD contains people who believe ‘what they are’ is better than what everyone else.

(I know, that’s an uncomfortable thought for us ‘chosen people’, isn’t it? But I digress.)

But even with the corrupt, violent police, and even with all the undeniable racism, however you want to define that, that exists all over the world – and that may even (whisper it…) not actually be the real root of our problems, something just seems so ‘off’ with all this George Floyd stuff.

I mean, why are people demonstrating about this in London and other European cities, too?

====

And all the banners they are ‘spontaneously’ carrying just all sound so CO-IN-CID-ENT-AL-LY on-message, and twee. Like this:

“I can’t breathe”

“We are all George Floyd”

“Racism chokes us”

And why are the authorities letting violent crowds congregate, when just a week ago it was illegal to even breathe outside, unfettered?

What happened to all the ridiculous ‘social distancing’, all the ridiculous rules about big gatherings, all the unscientific claptrap about wearing masks in public spaces?

When I lived in the UK 15 years ago, it was clear that no-one in the UK would start a riot just because of social injustices occurring in the US, however awful they might be.

But now…. Apparently things have changed.

====

I have other questions, too, like how come it’s a white pair of hands holding up the sign listing many of the black people who have died in police custody in the USA, saying ‘WE will not let this happen again’?

Why are so many of the talking heads and ‘snowflakes’ now openly advocating violence as an ‘acceptable’ way of solving society’s problems?

Why are the cops being cast in such a bad light now, all over the world?

This is something I’ve been pondering with the whole masks thing here in Israel, because practically overnight, it evaporated the sense of gratitude and loyalty that so many Israelis instinctively feel towards people in uniform here.

Being fined for breathing, being prevented from going for walks, can do that. So it seemed like a massive ‘own goal’, to turn the populate squarely against the police by getting them to enforce all these ridiculous and unjust COVID rules.

====

Of course, there is a Jewish / Israel dimension to all this, too.

The same day that ‘George Floyd’ got a massive boost-up all over the global media as the match to light the smouldering tinder box that is American race relations, we had our own ‘George Floyd’ moment here in Israel.

What a CO-IN-CI-DEN-CE.

An autistic, unarmed Arab man named Eyad al-Halaq was shot dead in East Jerusalem by Israeli police who were given faulty information (by who???) that he was carrying a weapon, and planning a terrorist attack. This from Israel HaYom:

The killing of Eyad al-Hallaq in Jerusalem was unsettling, as was the horrific images of George Floyd in Minneapolis gasping for air.

Both of them civilians, both killed by police. Their tragic and outrageous deaths are part of a long history of violence.

====

What a convenient ‘match’ to light the smouldering tinder box that is meant to be the Israel-Arab conflict, just in time for Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ that will be imposed as a response to the massive wave of violence just waiting to engulf Israeli society.

Because strangely, the government has gone out of its way to state again and again and again that while ‘social distancing’ of three year olds in gan – with full face masks – is totally necessary, angry and violent protesters can congregate pretty much any time they want, any way they want, and without masks.

Because with all the panic about COVID-19 on the wane now – prematurely, thanks to the Rav sweetening it all – the powers-that-be need another excuse for permanently introducing martial law, and ramming through ‘temporary’ legislation to take all our rights away, while the populace is distracted with the next intifada….

Except.

That doesn’t seem to be happening.

I’m not sure why – except to say of course that the Rav is sitting in jail, sweetening all this behind the scenes. The media tried their best to whip up some ‘outrage’, and there were the usual Palestinian talking heads who conveniently got a truck load of posters printed showing George Floyd and Eyad al-Halaq side by side.

But after a couple of protests in Jaffa and Jerusalem on Sunday…. it’s totally faded out of the headlines.

====

While the scary people trying to control the world are still pulling the strings, and trying to orchestrate things according to their nefarious plans for global domination, universal vaccines and population control, it seems to me that things aren’t quite going to plan for them.

Poor dears.

Because more and more people are starting to see through the façade, and to question all the fake news that has been pouring out of the MSM for decades, already. It’s getting so obvious, that even the lobotomized people who write for Yeshiva World News – purveyors of fake news par excellence – are starting to complain about all the fake news going on.

Ah, the irony.

====

In Israel, they are angling for another fake ‘second wave’, as that will give them the excuse they need to introduce martial law, and to ram through the ‘peace plan’ and all their other sideshows for using the Israeli population as the guinea pigs for ‘personalised medicine.’

Personalised medicine’ means that big pharma is going to start messing around with your DNA, to try and ‘fix’ diseases in your personal genome.

Of course, just as that technology could in theory be used to cure illness, it could also for sure be used to give specific people tailor-made illnesses, and to change the human body in all sorts of creepy, unethical ways.

This isn’t sci-fi, they have been doing these types of experiments for years, already, and the tech is light years ahead of where the public really thinks it is.

Israel was the perfect testing ground for all this nefarious stuff, given our ongoing ‘war’ with the Arabs, the secrecy afforded to agencies like the Shabak and Mossad, and our political classes’ longstanding links with the neo-Nazis that took over the Western world, post WW2.

When the Palestinians complain about police brutality, torture, and all sorts of ‘unbelievable’ things being done to them by Israeli security forces, they aren’t always wrong.

Many of those same tactics have increasingly been used on the religious community in Israel, too, and there are way more frightening tricks still in the bag. They just need an excuse to roll out all this unethical medical stuff on an unsuspecting populace that is perfectly placed to act as the ‘guinea pig’ for the whole DNA / RNA experiment, thanks to our massively diverse gene pool.

====

Let’s leave things there for now.

We are all living in a film noire at the moment, that would be comedic except for the fact it’s deadly serious.

We need to get behind the the Rav ASAP.

Honestly, his Torah and guidance are the only things keeping me going at the moment, as the world plunges deeper into madness every day.

It’s all midda k’neged midda.

The same fake news that staged the accusations against Rabbi Berland is also staging the COVID-19 ‘pandemic’, and the ‘Peace Plan’, and George Floyd, and the false accusations against the Duma suspects, and probably a bunch of other things, too.

If you aren’t regularly talking to God every single day, and if you don’t have a bona fide rabbi to guide you (and most people don’t, let’s be honest) – you will have no idea what’s true and what isn’t.

And as the fake news continues to get even more fake, that’s going to leave you and your family  in a pretty precarious position, when it comes to be making the right decisions.

One thing I can say about the Baba Sali is that it’s never dull.

For some reason, I decided I just HAD to go to the Baba Sali this time with my good friend S.

I don’t know why. I’m very happy going all over the place by myself usually, and especially to kivrei tzaddikim. But Sunday night, I was on the phone to S., persuading her to come with me to Netivot.

She lives in the South, so it wasn’t a big shlep, and she likes to go to the Baba Sali herself, plus she’d been ‘locked down’ for three months, and really needed a break.

Problem was, S. is married to a Cohen, and had a small son that she couldn’t find a babysitter for. Cohens aren’t allowed into graveyards, and the Baba Sali is buried on the edge of the main cemetery in Netivot.

I’ll babysit him, while you go in, and we’ll switch off, I found myself saying.

Even though I haven’t babysit for anyone small for around 7 years now. But how hard could it be…. I mean, I could just wheel the kid around in its stroller for half an hour, even if it was bawling that would still be OK.

Wouldn’t it?

====

So we get there, and we agreed that S. would go in first while I walked around Netivot a little with her son in the stroller, so by the time he got cranky she’d be back to deal with him.

She took off for the kever, and I started pushing.

Something on the pavement caught my eye – it was a leaflet with a psak din on it, printed both sides. I walked on, and there were more of these leaflets scattered all over the floor. So I bent down to pick one up – and I was totally disgusted to find it was the psak din against Rav Berland and Shuvu Banim, printed in color and spread all over the streets of chareidi Netivot by his persecutors.

What can I tell you?

I started feeling really, really angry, and upset and judgmental – and all the other negative emotions and bad middot that you can basically classify as ‘hakpada’ or harsh judgment.

Just that morning, I’d read something on the RavBerland.com website where the Rav had said it’s assur – forbidden! – to get harshly judgmental against anyone, even a Jew who is up to his neck in wickedness.

Yet walking around Netivot, I totally forgot all about the Rav’s holy words, and as I spotted more of these infernal leaflets scattered all over the place, I started to fume more and more.

By the bus stop, there was a stack of about 30 leaflets. I walked past them – then decided I was going to go back, rip them into pieces, dramatically, then shove them in the waiting rubbish bin.

My small charge was talking happily to himself, so I parked him in the bus stop, three paces away, and pushed down on the stroller’s brake, to keep him anchored in place while I went on my ‘holy’ rampage.

What can I tell you?

In the two seconds I turned my back to gather the leaflets up, the stroller unbraked itself, and then tipped over on to its side. The small kid started shrieking, and my heart started beating in that wild, uncontrolled way that occurs when you think you may just have done something really bad, however unintentionally.

I ran over, picked the stroller and kid back up, and tried to shush him soothingly, while I found somewhere shaded to sit, where I could take him out and cuddle him. Two minutes later, he was on my lap – and that’s when I noticed he had a small, bruised egg on the front of his head.

My heart sank again.

====

I called his mum, explained what had happened, and she was so understanding.

Is he puking?

No. Thank God.

Is he awake and aware?

Yes. Thank God.

Rivka, I think it’s OK. He gets a lot of knocks at home, too, don’t worry.

But of course, it was too late for that.

====

I have a history of ‘interesting things’ happening at the Baba Sali, including the massive car crash that got me to move to Jerusalem back in 2014. This wasn’t that extreme… but I was still feeling pretty shaken up at this stage.

The kid had calmed down enough for me to put him back in the stroller and to walk around a bit more. So I buckled him in again, and started circling Netivot, trying to figure out why I couldn’t even keep a small child in my care for 2 minutes safe…

The answer wafted over to me from the Baba Sali’s kever:

Hakpada. Harsh judgment. Anger. Self-righteousness. Arrogance.

All things that I’d been totally guilty of, when I picked up those leaflets and started thinking dark thoughts about the poor frum community of Netivot.

====

God, I’m really sorry! Please just let the kid be OK, and I’ll do my best to try to steer clear of those things from now on. But please help me! Because I’m going to find it really hard to uproot those bad middot from my heart, even though I really want to!

God was basically showing me just how dangerous hakpada really is.  Even just two seconds of self-righteous anger can lead to a lot of bad things happening…

And the people who get the most hurt by it are you, and the people closest to you.

====

My friend came back, and I told her that I wouldn’t need long at the tomb, as I’d already got the clarity I’d come for. In typical Baba Sali fashion, I’d got a real slap across the face again, and I’d learned my lesson before I even got into the compound there.

My friend told me that the ‘rules’ for visiting were that you had to wear a mask, get your temperature taken, and avoid kissing the tomb.

So, I decided to skip the tomb itself, and to just throw two packs of candles into the yahrtzeit candle pyre that is nearly always burning strong by the Baba Sali.

God, just as these candles are melting, please melt my hakpada. Please get rid of my self-righteous anger. Please uproot my arrogance.

I threw them in, slowly, one by one.

====

In the car home, I was in a somber mood.

There’s so much harsh judgment in the world right now.

The government in Israel is talking about passing a bill that will enable the police to break into homes and forcibly remove people deemed to be ‘corona risks’ if they have a warrant.

Which of course, they will have for anyone they want to target, so all this emphasis on having a warrant is a meaningless piece of propaganda designed to lull people into thinking they still have any civil rights or legal protection in the State of Israel.

As if.

Things are crumbling all around.

If I didn’t keep my head in the sand as much as possible at the moment, I’d probably be totally freaking it.

As it is, we need all the judgment, all the hakpada to be sweetened.

And I guess that each of us are responsible for trying to do that in our own dalet amot.

Which means trying to seeing the good in the other person. Trying to let go of all our anger and indignation. And to quit hating people who act differently from us, or believe different, or even, that hurt us and those we love, intentionally or otherwise.

It’s a big ask, honestly.

But if I got one thing from my trip to the Baba Sali, it’s just how dangerous all that hakpada really is.

Especially to ourselves.

One thing you get by the tzaddikim is clarity.

Yesterday, after a week of just feeling totally out of it, and confused, and overwhelmed and ‘lost’, I finally made it up to Meron, to the tomb of Rashbi.

I went up the 90, from Jerusalem to Tiveria, and it was so good to see all the green blossoming all over Israel, and to see the glorious blue of the Kinneret expanding all over the place.

I know you can’t run away from your problems (I wrote a whole book about that, after all….)

At least, you can’t run away as a permanent feature of life.

But it’s also no less true that sometimes we need to have a break, a change of scene, a breath of fresh air. And that’s particularly true after we’ve spent close to three months in some form of ‘lockdown’ under martial law.

This is grace period, a time for reflection, a time to action the teshuva we were only thinking about the last few weeks and months.

And it’s a time to do all the things you’ve been pushing off, because soon the next round of madness will begin.

====

So, I got in the car yesterday and headed up to Meron.

On the way up, I bought some dresses for Shabbat and Chag, and a tent.

I usually have a pretty good inner-GPS, but for some reason I took a strange turn when I was coming around the Kinneret on the way to Meron – and it took me straight to Tzalmon prison.

Tzalmon prison is where the Rav, Rabbi Berland, is currently being held, in awful conditions where he’s being regularly abused by Arab inmates and denied even basic things like toilet paper.

So, I ended up driving almost straight up to Tzalmon prison, by mistake, and as soon as I realized where I actually was, this wave of happiness just filled me up out of nowhere.

Being close to the Rav, even in these strange circumstances, can do that.

====

I got my bearings again, and drove off to Rashbi, which was reassuringly busy.

There were lots of people wearing masks (mostly the older women in trousers with the bleach blonde hair) and lots of people not, baruch Hashem.

Compared to the hysterical control being exercised down by the Kotel at the moment, it made a really nice change.

====

As soon as I parked, two Breslovers with long, curly payot came over and gave me two books, biographies of the Saba, Rabbi Israel Dov Ber, aka the founder of the Na-Nach movement.

I opened one up ‘randomly’, and started reading a passage about the awful machloket that had engulfed the founder of the Chassidic movement, the Baal Shem Tov. You know that the beit din of the Vilna Gaon excommunicated him, and his followers, right?

You know that unethical ‘rabbis’ and askanim with vested interests told the Vilna Gaon a whole pack of lies about who the Baal Shem Tov really was, and what he was really up to. They called him a ‘false messiah’. They spread stories about him accepting money to do pidyonot. They openly mocked and ridiculed his tremendous spiritual level, and abilities to miracles and sweeten harsh judgments in the world.

And the Vilna Gaon bought all the lies about the Baal Shem Tov being another ‘Shabtai Tzvi’, God forbid, and excommunicated him and his followers

Does any of that sound familiar?

====

So anyway, then the book moved on to Rebbe Nachman, and explained that while the BESHT had been given permission to perform open miracles, Rebbe Nachman had not. According to the Saba:

“If Rabbenu had been permitted to do wonders, all the world would have drawn closer [to Breslov.] The world has fallen into such a darkness, as we see, and Rabbenu HaKodesh warned us about this. But everything is just preparation for the geula.

That we will be redeemed and raised up dafka from this machloket, and from this blow the honor of God will become greater and greater.”

Again, does any of that sound familiar?

====

I have to admit to driving up to Meron with quite a load of confusion and heartache.

Sure, I can now pick up my favorite kosher sushi again, and buy dresses again, and even take a walk without a mask. But you would have to be brain-damaged to believe things are going back to ‘normal’.

There is no ‘normal’.

What there is, is super-weird fringed with a return of a lot of the gashmius, but underpinned by massive anxiety and fear about what the future holds.

This period of time, in many ways, is going to be harder to deal with mentally than being in full lockdown, because the brain likes things to be pinned-down and kept in discrete boxes.

‘Lockdown’ came with its own set of rules, and most of us could deal with it, more or less, because we believed it was a temporary state of affairs.

But now, we’re coming out of ‘lockdown’, to find that so much of the world we hoped to return to is not how it was before.

I see all the masked sheeple walking around, and it instantly thrusts me back into the Orwellian nightmare, no matter how many mask-less walks in nature I’m taking, or how much wasabi I’m eating.

Things have changed out there.

====

There’s no going back to how it was before.

And even though plenty of us will continue to lie to ourselves over the coming months about what’s really going on, and what we really feel about it all, while we wait patiently for ‘things to get back to normal’, the truth is that we are only at the beginning of the patently disturbing process that’s going to lead to revealed geula in the world.

The economy and society has started unravelling, and nothing can hold it together.

That’s a precursor for Moshiach, that our existing corrupt, materialistic world has to implode first so that a much better, spiritual world can take its place.

The only question is how fast the process is going to take – and how bad things are going to get, day-to-day, before Moshiach actually shows up.

====

Tachlis, encourage everyone in your home right now to go out, and do as many soul-affirming things as they can, while they still have the chance.

Encourage them to ditch the masks as much as possible.

Encourage them to work on their emuna that God is running the world, and to stop fretting about germs and social distancing.

We have a few more weeks, possibly 2-3 more months, to really dig in and do the work of building up our emuna muscles.

There is a process in motion here that is not going to disappear, or ‘go back to normal’, but is actually only going to intensify.

So, give yourself and others a massive break right now, if you or they are ‘acting out’, or going weird.

Take a break. Do some shopping. Hug a friend. Have a party.

And most of all, work on strengthening your connection to God, and His true tzaddikim, as that is the real secret to getting through the next few months with your mental health intact.

====

If you live in Israel, jump in your car and go visit a holy site or two. Or six.

Or, order some of Rabbi Nachman’s books, or some of Rav Berland’s books, and connect that way, while the postman is still delivering.

Whatever you build now, whatever you create in your life, that’s what you will be left with, to take you through the next stage.

For some people, that’s going to be 48 tins of tuna and a massive bag of rice.

For others, it’s going to be the knowledge that only God runs the world, and that only the people who stay close to the Moshe Rabbenu of their generation are going to get out of Mitzrayim alive.

If you insulted someone, say sorry while you still can, and make peace with them.

If you stole something, pay it back.

If you made a big mess, in whatever way you want to understand that, go and fix it.

There is no more time left, to keep pushing things off.

That is the clarity I got up in Meron yesterday, and that I’m now sharing with you.

Connecting back to the Tzaddikim – alive and dead – makes all the difference.

Thursday afternoon, I said to my husband:

Please, let’s try to book a zimmer in Tsfat. We’ll take cold meat and make sandwiches, or something, but I urgently need to have a break, and to do some kever-hopping.

My teenagers – and their ad-ons – are really great.

Really. But after this whole 3 month quarantine thing, where most of my time has been spent on taking responsibility for cleaning up after everyone else; and driving them places because there are no buses; and keeping the fridge and fruit bowl stocked in the face of voracious teenage appetites – I really needed a break.

So, we found a zimmer in Tsfat, and Friday morning, we headed up there.

====

The good news is most people in Tsfat are not buying into the whole facemask thing. The bad news is, all the synagogues – and well over half of the main shopping street – is still closed for business.

And from what I could tell, most of those shops are now closed permanently.

But we found a really nice zimmer in the Artists’ Quarter, 10 minutes walk from the ancient graveyard and the Ari, dumped our stuff there, then headed out to try to visit as many kivrei tzaddikim as we could pack into the 3 hours we had before Shabbat came in.

====

While the beaches in Tel Aviv are now open, Meron – the grave of the Rashbi – is still closed.

There were police parked in front of the gates, and also police cars parked at all the major intersections of any road that could conceivably lead to Meron.

The government here is very serious about stopping frum Jews from praying together, connecting to tzaddikim, and breathing fresh air.

So, with Meron taken off limits, we decided to stop at every other Kever we passed, as we drove around.

====

The first one was the grave of Rabbi Yehuda Bar Ilai.

I didn’t know this before I got to it, but apparently there is also a tradition to go to his kever on L’Ag B’Omer, too. Just as we got there, three Breslov guys with brown chinos, crazy hair, big, knit kippas and tzitzit on the outside suddenly pulled up, and started singing Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, yiy didee yiy yiy yiy yiy yai at the top of their lungs.

All of a sudden, the funny mood I’ve been in for ages started to lift considerably.

The tzaddikim were starting to work their magic.

====

Next stop was Rabbi Tarfon’s grave, near Kadita, in the middle of a forest.

The police were prowling at the end of the track, as it was one of the shortcut back routes to Meron, but once we’d turned off towards Kadita, they stopped following us.

Rabbi Tarfon’s grave is up a mountain in the middle of some splendid green isolation. It’s a breathtaking view.

Someone had left a copy of Chayei Moharan out on the grave, so I opened it ‘randomly’ and got to a section talking about Rabbenu’s ‘Burned Book’.

If you take a look HERE, you’ll find a discourse on the Burned Book, and lesson I:83 in Likutey Moharan, which takes a deeper look.

But in a nutshell, it’s all connected to:

  • The “dawning of the ray of the Moshiach.”
  • The importance of the sanctity of Shabbat.
  • Raising up fallen fears and fallen ‘loves’, so they become yirat shemayim – fear of God and holy ‘love’ for God, mitzvoth and His Torah instead.
  • And then it talks about eiver min ha hai – which has the same gematria as ‘Corona’, and which you can read a whole bunch about HERE.
  • But basically, it’s connected to the Tzaddik of the generation taking shame upon himself to atone for the sins of the generation.

====

Wow.

====

Next stop was one of the places reputed to be the Idra, the place where Rashbi is meant to have taught his inner circle of students the Zohar.

We stepped inside – and were shocked to see the stones inside totally and utterly covered with flies. It was pretty disgusting. And for a moment, I was confused: how can this site be so covered with flies, which are drawn to dung and ‘tumah’?

(There is another site that seems to be more accepted as the place of the Idra, which you can see in this video, but like so many things, it’s not 100% clarified or certain.)

====

====

Then, I remembered what Rabbi Berland has been teaching for a few years now, as expressed in his Prayer for Parents to Say For Their Children, which refers to Klipat Zvuv – the klipah of the flies.

He said this:

“[T]here have never been such difficult tests in the world, that “Klipat Zvuv” has taken hold of every boy and girl….everyone without exception had fallen into the spiritual impurity of Zvuv, which is in fact the spiritual impurity of Amalek, which is the strongest force of spiritual impurity that has ever existed.”

Basically, Klipat Zvuv – the spiritual impurity of the ‘fly’ –  is currently launching an all-out attack against kedusha at the moment, and that is so very obvious at the Idra, the cradle of the Zohar.

====

Next stop was the ancient synagogue of Nevoryah, where Rabbi Elazar HaModai is meant to also be buried. R’ Elazar HaModai was the uncle of Bar Kochba, the abortive false messiah of the Jews, who has his uncle killed because of the Romans’ vicious lashon hara against the elderly sage.

At each stop, I felt like I was gathering up clues and hints from Hashem, about what is really going on right now, albeit some of them were far more hidden and obscured than others.

====

The last stop before Shabbat took us to Amuka, the grave of Rabbi Yonatan Ben Uzziel.

My husband and I both prayed that our children would find their true basherts, and that if that had already happened, that things should move forward at a good pace.

I opened up one of the siddurim there ‘randomly’, and got to the page for kabbalat Shabbat, with Tehillim #92.

Here’s some of what that said:

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing to Your name, O Most High. To declare Your kindness in the morning, and Your faith at night…. O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep.

A boorish man does not know; neither does a fool understand this. But when the wicked flourish like grass, and all workers of violence blossom, this is only for them to be destroyed forever….         My eye has gazed upon those who stare at me [with envy]; when evildoers rise up against me, my ears hear [them]. The Tzaddik flourishes like the palm; as a cedar in Lebanon he grows.

It made me feel like we are close, so very close, to the ‘Shabbat’ of geula finally being ushered in.

====

That kever also had a few other people – non-chareidim – and no-one was wearing masks.

Just as we were pulling out of the parking lot, a middle-aged secular guy on his 4×4 pulled up and asked us if we had a lighter, while his girlfriend squinted at us curiously, from the passenger’s seat.

We didn’t have a lighter, but I offered him the box of matches I’d brought with me to light my Shabbat candles. He took it like a thirsty man in the desert being offered a pina colada – and then whipped out the biggest joint I remember seeing this side of university.

After he gave the matches back, I whispered to my husband that I really wasn’t sure if enabling him to light his massive bong really counted as a mitzvah…

====

The last stop before Shabbat in Tsfat was the kever of Ben Yehoyda. There, I picked up a copy of the Chofetz Chaim’s tome on lashon hara, and here is the ‘random’ message I got from that:

Accepting rechilut [about other Jews] makes a person become a complete sonei Israel (hater of Israel, hater of other Jews, hater of Hashem and His Torah, God forbid.)

I thought about all those people greedily guzzling down the anti-Torah and anti-Tzaddikim propaganda that passes for journalism on sites like Yeshiva World News, and I sighed a big sigh.

Today when I was typing this post up, my dad in the UK showed me a big headline from a supposedly frum Jewish paper in the UK, which was lit up with the world SHAMEFUL! in big red letters.

Underneath, the writer was attacking the ‘small minority’ of religious Jews who had defied the retarded and unscientific ‘social distancing’ rules in the UK, to light a bonfire on L’Ag B’Omer.

I sighed again.

====

Back in my zimmer, I had the best Shabbat.

I slept well for the first time in 3 months, without being weighed down with other people’s problems and responsibilities.

I managed to do six hours for the first time in a month, and felt way more ‘grounded’ and happy as a result.

And then, just as I was telling God that I so miss spotting all His messages, and recognizing all His hashgacha pratis in my life, my eye was caught by some writing on the walls of the zimmer. Here’s what it said, in order of me reading them:

  • Life the life you imagined, for with God all things are possible.
  • Dreams have no expiration date.
  • Faith makes things possible…not easy.
  • Like chocolate.

Wow again.

====

Shabbat day, I stayed in pyjamas until 5pm (for the first time in well over 15 years), then got dressed and went to pray at the kever of the Ari.

All the synagogues in Tsfat are still shut, so minyanim were gathered in the street.

Down by the kever, there was another small band of Breslov-friendly Jews with big payot and t-shirts, drinking soda and singing songs, while others recited a tikkun haklali. I joined them.

And again, it brought home to me just how much life force, just how much spiritual koach we really get from being connected to our tzaddikim.

My husband also took the opportunity to dip in the Ari’s mikvah Shabbat morning, and he also came away from that experience feeling rejuvenated and re-energised.

It’s a funny world we live in, when the high street feels totally dead, and the ancient cemetery of Tsfat feels the most ‘alive’ of any place I’ve been for a good long while.

====

Motzash, the road back to the 89 was blocked by the police, still earnestly trying to stop ANYONE from getting within sniffing distance of Rashbi and Meron.

So, we went down the road to Tiveria, and tried to visit the tomb of Rabbi Meir Baal HaNess.

It was closed.

Why?

Because there is a war against religion being waged in Israel, undercover of all this COVID hysteria.

On the way out, we stopped for five minutes to go and see the overflowing Kinneret, swollen to almost bursting point by this winter’s rains. The lake level is so high, it’s reaching the top of what used to be the beach area around it. Me and my husband both dipped our hands in the warmish water, and exalted in the gashmei bracha that Hashem had sent this year.

Then it was time to get back in the car, and head home.

====

I’m still trying to finish up the sodding 40 days at the Kotel that I started over three months ago, so before we returned to our house, we made a pit-stop down by the Dung Gate, where I donned my regulation mask, and joined the four million other Jews threading their way to the Kotel Plaza.

This time, I didn’t get near the wall, as there was a massive queue, but I got close enough to imagine kissing the stones, and as I turned on my heel to leave, I suddenly had a strange flash of imagination.

A tall tree – a cedar of Lebanon – suddenly sprouted out of Har HaBayit, and was growing at a rapid pace, bringing everything in Israel under its protective shade.

I remembered Tehillim #92, and smiled a small smile:

The Tzaddik flourishes like the palm; as a cedar in Lebanon he grows.   

====

Bad guys, your days are numbered.

You don’t realise it yet, but you already lost the game, and geula is unfolding the sweet way, faster and faster.

And very soon, that’s going to be obvious to everyone.

How to cope with the madness?

That’s is the real question, isn’t it?

Because while even a few weeks ago, I was still getting a lot of stick for coming up with weird ‘conspiracy theories’ suggesting that Bibi, and the Israeli health ministry are totally in the pocket of billionaire businessmen with evil agendas, today, I found this headline on the Jpost:

====

I had to rub my eyes, and double-check it wasn’t April 1st, or Purim.

But no, there it was in black and white, making the strongest case possible to support the idea that all the stuff we’ve been writing about Bill Gates, and his eugenicist agenda for the world, is actually true.

Here’s a quote from that article:

Cyber experts slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his proposal to “microchip” children who return to schools and kindergartens as the coronavirus lockdown is lifted, Ynet reported on Friday.
While speaking at a press conference on Monday, Netanyahu suggested the Health Ministry use new technology to help Israel adjust to its new routine as the state is lifting the coronavirus lockdown. “That is, technology that has not been used before and is allowed under the legislation we shall enact,” he clarified.
“I spoke with our heads of technology in order to find measures Israel is good at, such as sensors. For instance, every person, every kid – I want it on kids first – would have a sensor that would sound an alarm when you get too close, like the ones on cars,” the prime minister said.
====

If you’re anything like me, your head probably started swimming a little, and your eyes lost focus, when you read that.

It’s really hard to deal with all this stuff, honestly, and like one of my perceptive correspondents emailed me a couple of weeks’ ago, there is so much evil out there, that trying to keep on top of it all is like playing ‘whack-a-mole’ with the forces of darkness.
No wonder so many of us are going into denial – honestly, me half included – because what can we really do, about all this anyway?
Go back and read this article from a few weeks ago, to see how all the ducks are being lined up and are now falling into place:

But DON’T DESPAIR!!!!!

Because there is a way we can all get through this in one piece, still, without our children being turned into The Borg.
====

The rest of this post is about coping strategies for dealing with what is now emerging out of the shadows.

Last week, I got sent some stuff about five gee, and how ‘they’ want to use it to start zapping ‘undesirable’ groups of people, then pretend that co-in-ci-den-tal-ly Covid-20 just happens to be only taking out brown people, poor people, religious people with lots of kids and people who are in a trade war with the US and / or Europe.
My heart totally sank when I read that, because it had the ring of truth. I haven’t researched it, or looked into it very much, so I’m not saying that from an ‘informed’ place, the way I usually like to impart information on this blog. It just seemed to me very plausible, and very likely, that this could happen in the near future.

And then, I fell into utter despair for a day, and I couldn’t really do anything much except eat a lot of chocolate.

It was even hard to do hitbodedut, and to talk to God about what is going on, because I just started to feel so utterly powerless, and helpless and small and controlled.

The bad is going to win again… and there is nothing I can do to stop it.

====

Which is when I got in touch with my contact at the Ravberland.com website, to ask them if the Rav had said anything specifically about us all being zapped with weaponised radiation that will take out our body’s ability to absorb oxygen, just like happened in Wuhan, Milan and NYC – all ‘pilot areas’ for the next generation of wifi.

He told me that no, the Rav wasn’t talking about it specifically, although it’s for sure all happening under the surface.

But then, he told me something that changed the whole picture:

The Tzaddik is sweetening everything.

We just need to hold on to the Tzaddik HaDor, and work on our emunat tzaddikim, and work on our own bad middot and the things that are keeping us away from Hashem and the tzaddikim, and all this will come good.

The Tzaddik is sweetening everything, but getting too caught up in the ‘details of evil’ makes the whole process much harder.

====

So, with that crucial piece of info under my belt, I was able to put together a coping strategy that is enabling me to straddle the unhelpful urge to go into total denial about what is transpiring, with the unhelpful urge to go into total panic and meltdown about what is happening.

And this is it:

  1. Stop checking the news sites, unless you are 100% sure that you will not get sucked into all their hype and fearmongering.

People are literally being driven insane by fear of ‘Coronavirus’, and as I’ve written 4 billion times already, Covid-19 is no more scary, infectious or dangerous than any other regular strain of flu. It’s just an illusion, reinforced by the totally corrupt media, and played up by politicians who have been paid millions in share options to get their populations exactly where big Pharma and the billionaire eugenecists want them.

2. At the same time, understand that there IS a big battle being waged here, between the forces of good and the forces of darkness.

Because if you go into denial about that, you won’t make the teshuva God is requiring of all us, to get this problem resolved the sweet way.

Doing nothing is not a good option. But the question is, what DO we actually do about it? What CAN we do about it? Read on.

3. Get behind Rabbi Eliezer Berland 10000000%.

There is no-one else out there on his spiritual level, and with the spiritual capacity he has to take the evil out at its root.

Go and read One in a Generation Volume 1, which spells out his spiritual credentials, and has literally tens of the biggest rabbis of the last couple of generations describing who he really is, in superlative terms.

As we discussed already HERE, the same forces that geared up to convince you that COVID-19 is real, and that microchipping kids is a great idea, were the same forces that geared up to convince you that Rabbi Berland was guilty of crimes that he never committed in a million, billion years.

Twice.

Rabbi Berland is still sitting in an Israeli prison up North, where the authorities are withholding even basic things like food, a change of clothing and medical care.

And who knows, what else they are trying to do to him, God forbid.

====

But the Rav can take them out any time he chooses.

He’s just waiting for more and more of us to wake up, and to really pick the right side.

As soon as we get to critical mass, as soon as we get to the tipping point, the Jewish people will be unstoppable, and geula will go full-throttle – the sweet way.

====

So, if you hate the idea of your kids being microchipped, and of society being totally controlled by the forces of evil, the choice is getting starker and starker by the day.

Bibi et al are totally corrupt and bought and paid for.

We can’t trust any politician, the whole world over.

We can’t trust the medical establishment, that is staffed full of people who sold their souls and their ability to think critically, independently and morally for their medical degrees, status and fat salaries.

We can’t trust the media, which Rav Pinto clearly told us is all lies.

All that’s left to do is to turn inwards, connect to our souls, and really start talking to Hashem about what’s going on.

If we do that, He’ll show us very quickly the truth about Rav Berland.

And once we get behind the Rav 100%, events in our small world will sweeten, even while the ‘bad’ continues to play out a little while longer.

This is the only way to really cope, with what’s coming down the pipe.

====

UPDATE:

A reader just sent me this article:

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/150081/following-netanyahus-plan-micro-chip-kids-israelis-claiming-have-been-forced-micro-chip-speak-out/

The technology has been in place to do this for decades, already.

Strange world we live in, when it seems that the tin-foil hat people might have been right all along.

====

UPDATE #2:

Read this article by a real medical doctor (retired, so he can actually tell the truth….) who is explaining that not only do all these face masks NOT HELP AT ALL TO PREVENT ANY SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS, wearing them for any length of time actually leads to a number of potentially serious health issues.

https://www.technocracy.news/blaylock-face-masks-pose-serious-risks-to-the-healthy/

====

That’s because wearing masks reduces the amount of oxygen you are breathing in.

And the body requires oxygen in order to function properly.

And the more ‘hi-spec’ the mask – like the vaunted N-95 – the less oxygen you can actually breathe in, like up to 20% less.

Which is enough to make you pass out.

And even if you don’t slide comatose onto the pavement, 80% of health personnel wearing these masks for any length of times developed headaches, with 60% developing headaches bad enough to require pain relief.

Oh, and chronic lack of oxygen also sky-rockets people’s chances of having heart attacks and strokes, and can seriously impair the immune system, and exacerbate existing medical conditions like cancer.

So please, all those self-righteous, scientifically-challenged people who keep harping at the lack of consideration for others being shown by not wearing a mask, PUT A SOCK IN IT. And then, securely tape your N-95 mask over it.

The world will thank you for your ‘consideration’.

The last few weeks have been such a rollercoaster of emotions for all of us, haven’t they?

I was pretty chipper for the first 3 ½ weeks of this COVID-19 ordeal, not least because right from the start, I was relying on the Rav’s promise to sweeten it by Pesach, and also because I wasn’t letting all the Health Ministry’s propaganda scare the pants off me.

I wasn’t wiping things down as they entered my home, or using a UV light wand to ‘desanitize’ them. I’ve tried to come out of my home as much as I’m able to, given the horrible restrictions that we’ve been under during this lockdown.

I shunned the gloves and the alcogel cleanser. I hate the whole idea of wearing facemasks, and the only reason I just went and bought some now is because I don’t want to have to deal with the police if I’m out for a walk.

But I can tell you now: the facemask thing is not going to last more than another 2 days in Israel. I can already see that most people totally resent them, and they’re only going along with it because of the fines being threatened for non-compliance.

When all this ends, even ordinary, law-abiding citizens are going to be distrusting and hating the police and politicians so very much.

But I digress.

====

Seder night was actually really good – and I heard from a few other people that their Seder night was also surprisingly nice. When you don’t have to accommodate cranky relatives, or cook for 4 gazillion people, or worry that your kids don’t have new clothes, or the ‘right’ type of clothes for Seder, that takes so much pressure off.

But as I wrote over HERE, the following day a dark cloud of yeoush settled over me, and I began to feel like I was in prison, mamash. That feeling was exacerbated on Friday morning, when I tried to drive over to Mahane Yehuda – many hours after the overall ‘lockdown’ on Jerusalem was meant to have been lifted – to find some board games for my bored teens to play over Shabbat.

Everything was shut.

And in the meantime, I got stopped at a police checkpoint, who were stopping every single car. There was something about having to wind down my window, and having to say where I lived and where I was going that really got me so, so down.

What, is this the gestapo I’m dealing with here?!?

====

As Mahane Yehuda was a bust, I tried Romema, figuring that maybe the chareidi parts of town may have more going on.

If anything, it was even more deserted. I spotted a few solitary guys trying to do a minyan on opposite sides of the street, in accord with the retarded ‘social distancing’ rules, but otherwise it was a ghost town.

My heart sank.

I began to think that this horrible police state could be here to stay for a longggg time, God forbid.

====

My last shake of the dice was to try Talpiot, nearer to where I live. I went to the one store that was still open, that looked like maybe they might also have some games or toys stuffed underneath the toilet roll and deodorant – and an aggressive woman with her own mask under her chin stopped me at the door.

You can’t come in without a mask! She told me.

But that rule only begins on Sunday! I tried to argue.

But she wasn’t having any of it. Clearly, one of those people who totally holds by all the Health Ministry propaganda that says that other people are Public Enemy #1.

I felt so angry.

I begrudgingly bought a mask for 4 shekels, then even more begrudgingly got ‘shot’ – twice – with the guard’s ‘thermometer gun’, to check my temperature wasn’t over 38 degrees.

Clearly, the thing wasn’t working properly, because even though my blood was boiling, she still let me in.

I had the mask on – under my chin – resenting every second, and I really started to feel like if this is how life is going to be from now on, then bring on the COVID. Better to live like a mensch with Coronavirus than to subsist like a bemasked shadow, scared of every little interaction.

I didn’t find anything I needed.

====

On the way back home, the police stopped me again.

Again, with the stupid questions, where do you live, where were you just now, what did you buy….

I didn’t buy anything, I snapped back, finding it really hard to control myself. Everything is shut.

As she gave me back my teudat zehut, the policewoman told me, Geveret, don’t drive around too much. It’s dangerous. You need to be at home right now.

It took a superhuman effort for me to not roll my eyes so much you could actually hear them moving, and I nodded and smiled my tight smile.

As I drove off, I cursed all these institutions that have transformed Israel into Stalin’s Soviet Union, replete with bans on prayer gatherings and government approved ‘ghettos’ for religious Jews.

====

And then I got home… and I felt really, really down about what’s happening.

Is my kid just going to spend the next 10 months in bed, only waking up at 5pm because there is nothing to wake up for anyway?

Am I never going to be able to walk around again and talk to God freely? Is the Kotel always going to be off-limits? Are the police going to be able to intimidate me and harass me just for the ‘crime’ of trying to breathe some fresh air forever? When am I going to be able to take a hike in nature with a friend my own age again?

You know what I mean. I’m sure in your darkest moments, you’ve had similar fears bubble up.

For the next two days, this continued.

====

Then, two things happened:

  • I picked up a copy of the book You will succeed by Rabbi Eliezer Berland, and even the little bit I started reading profoundly changed my mood. In a nutshell, the whole book is just reassurance that God loves us, and that God can and does change things around in a nanosecond, so there is no reason to ever despair.

Those words worked on my so powerfully and so quickly, I made a decision to spend some of my ‘free time’ in lockdown translating the book into English, for the ravberland.com website.

Take that, yetzer hara!!!!

  • The second thing that happened is that I saw that all over the world, the numbers of people dying, or seriously ill with Coronavirus are now dropping, just as Rav Berland said they would start to do, post-Seder night. In Israel, they dropped from 13 people dying a day to 3 after chag, and yesterday it dropped to just 2.

This slide comes from the Worldometer site HERE, and it shows that there was a 27% drop in global deaths in the 5 days between April 5th and April 12th – this is massive news! (Or at least, it should be, if our media was being remotely honest in reporting what’s really going on here.)

chart showing the number of deaths from COVID-19

====

There is a lag going on here, because it takes 5 days (minimum….) for test results to come back, but the Coronavirus is already on the way out, however hard the Health Ministry is trying to persuade us that it isn’t.

Within a week, things COULD be back to normal-ish, at least in Israel where the death toll has anyway been ridiculously low. And if not, Grotto, Bar Siman-Tov and Netanyahu are going to really struggle to justify why not.

Even all the ‘anti-conspiracy theory’ people out there will start to smell a rat, if this state of affairs continues when no-one is dying anymore, and the numbers infected start to rapidly fall.

So, both of those things cheered me up tremendously.

====

Off the back of these two things, I realized I have to start planning ahead for the future, and to come out of the dark COVID-19 corridor I’ve been stuck in, the last month.

Today, I’m working on pulling together some blog posts to create The Secret Diary of a Housewife #2.

And, I also decided to giveaway a free copy of my People Smarts Stress Personality book, to anyone who makes a real promise to review it on Amazon, even just with the stars and no words, if I send it to them.

You can get it as a PDF, or as a Kindle version, so just email me, and I’ll send you a copy. Everyone who has read it has found it really helpful, and with all this ‘stress’ we’re all under now, I’m sure it will give you a lot of tools to start handling your – and other people’s – stress-induced meltdowns way better.

And the last thing I decided to do is to break the negative spiritual power of COVID-19 in my own life, by listing out some of the positives that have come about as a result of it.

====

I got up to 25 things, and they include the following:

  1. People are more open to real conversations now.
  2. God is starting to come back into the picture.
  3. It’s doing a thorough job of ‘birur’, and is really showing who has emuna and who doesn’t, appearances notwithstanding.
  4. It’s turned off the ‘rat race’ overnight. Life has slowed right down, now.
  5. It got rid of so much of the tarbut ra, or bad culture, including the bars, pubs, clubs and non-stop shopping.
  6. It’s severely reduced immorality. If you don’t live with someone right now, you can’t be with them. And that particularly applies to teenagers.
  7. It’s bringing the core family back together.
  8. It’s forcing people to deal with themselves, and to finally turn and face down their fears.
  9. It’s making some space for the ‘sound’ of the neshama to finally be heard a bit.
  10. Many people enjoyed their seder nights way more, without friends to entertain, or cranky extended family members to deal with.
  11. It’s creating a situation where we are seeing the true face of people and organisations, both for good and for bad.
  12. It’s breaking up the superficial ‘grasp’ of the world.
  13. It’s causing more and more people to start questioning the ‘official narratives’ about what’s really going on, and why, and it’s encouraging them to start thinking for themselves.
  14. It’s causing the public to hate the police.
  15. It’s causing the public to increasingly distrust the authorities.
  16. It’s causing the public to start questioning the media’s lies.
  17. It’s bringing people closer to God – like e.g., my family did kabbalat Shabbat together, Carlebach-style, this Friday night for the first time I ever remember. Usually, my kids just fall asleep on the couch until it’s time to eat.
  18. It’s creating more achdut – both ‘against’ COVID-19, and ‘against’ the anti-semitic authorities.
  19. It got a lot of people to seriously start contemplating aliya.
  20. It’s creating a more tznius, spiritual world that’s more ready to receive Moshiach.

That was general stuff. For me personally, I also added in things like:

  • I cleared the garden out.
  • We built a fire pit.
  • I got chickens.
  • I’m crocheting my husband a kippa for the first time in the 24 years we’ve been together.
  • I’m starting to appreciate the most basic things in life, like having water to drink, clean underwear, and fresh air to breathe without a sodding mask getting in the way.

====

It’s turning around! Hold on!

And when the ‘pseudo-normal’ reappears sometime next week, please just remember which Tzaddik is still toiling away in an Israeli prison cell, in order to keep sweetening the birth pangs of Moshiach, and get as many of us over the finish line as possible.

====

UPDATE:

The corrupt government, and the corrupt WHO-controlled Health Ministry is apparently going to lock us all down again until Sunday at 6am.

It’s so upsetting for so many reasons….

But what’s heartening is that I’m seeing that so many people out there are starting to wise up to the fact that there is something very fishy going on here. If the danger is so very great, why are so few politicians and journalists and police following social distancing rules and wearing masks in the course of their jobs?

Why have the government offices in Jerusalem continued to operate with full staff, even in their minor posts, as though it’s just another day, while totally wrecking the livelihoods of a million other people?

Why are the main places being tested for COVID-19 predominantly haredi neighborhoods where the population is way younger than the national average, while the nation’s nursing homes – just to quote one example – are mostly being overlooked?

In Egypt, the main way they prevented the Jews from leaving for the Promised Land was fear-based manipulation.

As it was then, so it is now.

When more of us raise this fallen fear about COVID-19 up to its root, and understand that only God decides who lives and who dies, and develop some true emuna and yirat shemayim…. that’s when we’ll finally get out of the prisons we’ve really just made for ourselves.

Don’t forget, email me if you want a review copy of People Smarts: The System. Just let me know if you want PDF or Kindle.

You can see the book on Amazon HERE, so you know what you’re getting.

I’ve been pulling together a lot of information recently on what’s really going on behind this whole COVID-19 fake pandemic.

Lucky for me, a guy called Spiro Skouras – who happens to be a fabulous journalist – has pulled an awful lot of the material I was also starting to work on together into this video, which I found on the Going Home to Jerusalem blog.

(Credit where credit is due. I disagree with that blogger on a number of important issues, not least that Donald Trump is definitely part of the problem, not part of the solution, but especially at this time, it’s important for as many of us to be working together to identify the real ‘bad’ and the real evil in the world, than taking potshots at each other.)

So, Neshama posted this video, and I had a feeling I should watch it.

It’s excellent – and it gives a ton of solid information about what’s really going on with the Bill Gates foundation, the World Health Organisation (whose main puppet in Israel, Itamar Grotto, is constantly pushing for greater and greater restrictions on the overall population even though only 71 old people with pre-existing health conditions and a median age of 87 have died over the last 3 1/2 weeks….) and this whole COVID-19 fake pandemic.

There are a few women here and there, for shmirat eynayim people, so if that’s you just listen to the audio.

There’s a lot more to say about this.

====

The first thing to say is that God is running the world, and we can’t ever forget that because if we do, we could get totally washed away by a tsunami of yeoush about what’s really going on.

The second thing to say is that this whole thing is about population control and eugenics – and it’s rooted in a Nazi ideology that didn’t ‘disappear’ after World War II, like we all got brainwashed into thinking, but actually got wholly transplanted behind the scenes into Western countries, particularly America, as the price paid for absorbing Nazi technology and sciences as part of Operation Paper Clip.

The third thing to say is that orthodox Jews are the bone in the throat of these people, because we won’t just blindly agree to being ‘microchipped’ in order to use a bank, or buy groceries, or to get into the workspace etc. The whole idea of a ‘global digital identity’ is completely inimical to the Torah just on the practical level of being totally incompatible with keeping Shabbat.

And we’re not even talking about the far more important ethical ideas underpinning what’s going on here, about the sanctity of free choice, and how God only created the world in order for human beings to have the freedom to choose to serve Him.

====

I know all this is a lot to take in.

My routinely skeptical husband watched me burn a bunch of stuff on our chametz bonfire yesterday morning, including a scrap of paper with Billam’s name on it, and the World Health Organisation. He smiled his patient smile.

After watching this video, he’s now pacing the floor behind me as I type, clearly very disturbed by what he’s just learned.

We can’t put our heads in the sand over this.

We all have spent 3 1/2 weeks being ‘locked down’ for absolutely no good reason, and each day brings a fresh raft of diktats that bear no connection to the reality of what is really going on, at least in Israel. These ‘orders’ are 100% about trying to control you and me, and 0% about trying to ‘protect’ us and our families.

Like on Sunday, we are all meant to start wearing face masks here, even though the evidence that face masks reduce transmission of COVID-19 is practically non-existent:

A 2010 review published in the journal Influenza and Other Respiratory Conditions entitled, “REVIEW Face masks to prevent transmission of influenza virus: a systematic review,” found little supporting evidence for the efficacity of face masks:

“In conclusion there remains a substantial gap in the scientific literature on the effectiveness of face masks to reduce transmission of influenza virus infection. While there is some experimental evidence that masks should be able to reduce infectiousness under controlled conditions [7], there is less evidence on whether this translates to effectiveness in natural settings. There is little evidence to support the effectiveness of face masks to reduce the risk of infection.”

But hey, what a great way to keep the panic going and the sense of ‘weird’ heightened so we all feel like we’re at war and will roll over and ‘play dead’ for the authorities. And what a great way to start tracking the people who aren’t buying into the whole COVID-19 propaganda being shoved down our throats.

====

This afternoon, I started to feel so much yeoush again about what’s going on.

How can we stop all these corrupt government officials who are clearly receiving their orders in return for some massive bribes from totally ruining our lives, by continuing to put the squeeze on us even though just 71 old people have died in 3 1/2 weeks, in Israel?

Only by praying for God to really show us what’s going on here, and by overcoming the brainwashing we’ve all been immersed in for years that we can trust our governments and medical systems.

The whole construct is corrupt from top to bottom.

Modern life has been built on nazi technology and ideology, that just got ‘repurposed’ and repainted with some stars and stripes.

As Jews, we need to pull our heads out of the sand, and throw our weight behind our true tzaddikim, including Rabbi Eliezer Berland.

They are going after the frum community in Israel because they know that the frum community will refuse to go along with this agenda, because it’s anti-Torah, and by extension, anti-God.

There is strength in numbers. The more of us open our eyes to see what’s really happening here, and open our hearts to really connect back to our souls and God, the faster we can get this to turnaround.

Because make no mistake, the ‘bad’ is not going to win, and they are NOT going to be able to turn the whole of humanity into controlled, micro-chipped ‘robots’.

====

Right now, we are in the end game, and like Rabbi Berland said back in 2015 already, this is going to play out until 5781.

But at some point between now and then, things will turn around totally, and this world of lies and nazi ideology and technology will be replaced by yamei hamoshiach.

The more we band together, the more we start to really pray for God to help us, the more we start to support our real tzaddikim who are on the front lines of this battle, instead of believing all the disinformation about them being put out deliberately by the corrupt media, the easier and faster this whole process will go.

Free choice still exists.

Free choice is the only reason the world was created.

And God is not going to let free choice be snuffed out by Billam Gates, Bar Siman Tov and Itamar Grotto, however bleak things currently look. The strings are all being pulled from outside of Israel, pace:

“DG of the Health Ministry Moshe Bar-Siman-Tov said the World Health Organization has concluded coronavirus is spread by human saliva and therefore the ministry is recommending the use of masks by all members of the public, outside the home.”
But not for much longer, with God’s help.

Today, I read the following signs up at the Kotel:

“According to the directives of the Ministry of Health, it is forbidden to kiss the stones of the Western Wall.”

Every day I go at the moment, there is some fresh madness, some new ‘announcement’ designed to put me off from praying to Hashem.

My husband gave up on trying to find a minyan at Kever Rachel – where they are strictly enforcing the no more than 10 people rule – and ended up praying in the Sephardi minyan up the road here, where people are still shaking hands then kissing their fingers afterwards, like they’ve been doing for 2000 years already.

Then, I logged on to the news sites (which I’ve started reading a few times a day again, primarily so I get some warning if they decide to shut down all the supermarkets or cancel all the buses) – and there was a whole parade of what I’m going to call:

Headlines that get me worried

But probably not for the same reasons they are getting most people worried. Let me list a few of them below, so you can get the flavor of how the police state we apparently all live in – regardless of what country we call ‘home’ –  is starting to come out of the shadows

====

Worshippers told not to kiss stones at Western Wall; attendance limited

Government approves digital surveillance of Coronavirus police

No more touching – your life is about to change

Health Ministry approves experimental treatments for coronavirus

Due to recent instructions from the Health Ministry, MADA paramedics had to shave their beards to reduce being infected with COVID-19.

====

Puhleeze!!!

How can anyone take this seriously?

Two months ago, when the State of Israel started going after Rabbi Berland and Shuvu Banim, they said then that Shuvu Banim was only going to be the beginning of a war against religion and religious Jews.

With the anti-religious Benny Gantz trying to become PM by sucking up to the Arab parties – exactly as Rabbi Berland predicted months and months ago – that war looks like it’s heating up.

The last two days, I’ve been taking my kids to a load of different places, trying to get ready for the apparently inevitable ‘lockdown’ that the authorities here keep saying is only a matter of time.

Never mind that of the 7000 people tested for COVID-19 in Israel so far, only 324 of them have it, and of those only 5 are in serious condition, and NO-ONE has died here at all yet, thank God.

Regardless of the facts on the ground, the lockdown appears to be coming.

====

So, while I’ve been running around trying to prepare for that, I’ve been all over Jerusalem, refuelled my car in Shoresh, and been all around Gush Etzion and also Petach Tikva. And here’s what I’ve noticed:

Way more people in Israel are adopting a laissez faire attitude to Coronavirus than are taking it seriously.

There are still cafes and restaurants open, there are still ‘non-essential’ stores open and doing business, the number of people in face masks and gloves is minuscule (but strangely, face masks seem to be far more prevalent amongst the Arab residents) – in short, most of the people I’m seeing are just not buying all the government propaganda.

And while that’s true generally for a lot of Israelis, amongst the chareidi community, there is even less buy-in to the idea that normal life and Torah learning and praying and going to school needs to somehow stop just because there’s another virus on the loose out there.

And so, the battle lines are being drawn, between those members of the population who believe the government – wherever they happen to live – and those members of the public who really don’t.

====

We live in such interesting times.

Rabbi Berland is sweetening all this COVID-19 stuff at its root, which is why the next week or so is going to be ‘hinge’ event where everything starts to turn around.

Right now, the government can still get away with imposing draconian measures on the public by using fear tactics and manipulation. But if the number of new cases doesn’t get more ‘impressive’ very soon, God forbid, and if the number of people dying from it stays at zero, God willing, the Israeli public’s patience with the circus that is going on here will start to wear very thin.

And then, things will get very interesting.

====

One last thing to add, for now, is that I think this current panic is just a dry run.

I believe Rabbi Berland, when he says it will be sweetened and over by Erev Pesach, however unlikely that currently looks, but I also think that then there will be a short window of opportunity to learn the lessons of what’s going on now, and to make plans to move to Israel, if you’re currently abroad.

Because the next ‘birth pang’ won’t be long in coming, even when COVID-19 fades from sight.

Remember that wave of antisemitic attacks that occurred in the USA a few months ago?

I reported an unconfirmed statement from Rabbi Berland HERE that said the attacks would stop until the 7th day of Pesach.

====

Sure enough, as soon as I posted that statement up, the attacks stopped.

But I’ve been wondering about that ‘7th day of Pesach’ thing ever since, and pondering what’s meant to happen then.

I’m not a prophet, so I don’t know.

But I do know that unless this COVID-19 concludes with the open revelation of Moshiach, we will need at least one more ‘birth pang’ to move us forward, and it’s common knowledge that they get stronger and more unbearable as the actual delivery approaches.

So don’t wait for the situation to be as difficult as it is right now, with COVID-19, to make your plans to move here.

There will be another short window.

But it won’t be there for long.

And things are only going to get more intense from here.

====

Let’s give the last word to Shwekey. Press ‘play’ and dance along, because what else can we really do, at this point?
