Rav Berland at Meron 5783

If you are looking for some daily doses of inspiration from the Rav, try this.


It started a couple of years ago, then kind of went on holiday for a few months, but is now back again.

Here’s the aim of the site:

Welcome to Words from The Rav. A place to share the Rav’s words of Torah, Chiddushim and Advice. 

Rabbi Nachman teaches the importance of reviewing and discussing the words of the Tzaddik.

So, please join in the conversation and add your thoughts too.


And this is the latest post, to give you a flavor:

What the Rav said:

Chassidut is not about roaming the streets.

Rabbenu said, ‘regular Torah study rises above performance of all the Mitzvot’ (Sefer HaMidot, ‘Limmud’ (33)).

Regular Torah study is what is written here. Is there someone here wiser than Rabbi Nachman? Studying Torah, regularly, rises above performance of all the Mitzvot.

Who did they write Sefer HaMidot for?

If we don’t fulfil this, then who did he write this for?

Everyone should take a copy of the chapter on ‘Limmud’ in Sefer HaMidot and go through all of the sections. Every day go through the chapter on ‘Limmud’ – this will change your entire outlook on the world.


My thoughts:

I’m not one who spends my time dancing on the top of Na Nach vans.

But, equally, when I read this yesterday I acknowledged the fact that I really don’t study Torah as much as I could.

So, I followed the Rav’s advice. I searched for my copy of Sefer HaMidot (Hebrew/English online here: https://www.sefaria.org.il/Sefer_HaMiddot%2C_Torah_Study%2C_Part_I.9?lang=bi) and cracked open the section on Limmud.

Sometimes, we need a nudge, a push or a kick up the backside. Whatever it takes.

I know I need to put more time into learning, how ‘bout you?


I am currently trying to finish up a couple of big writing projects….

And I’ve also had a few more insights into the ‘Frankist Family Tree’ stuff, too, which I’m still piecing together.

In the meantime, my daughter sent me this story:


It’s in Hebrew, but this is the part I’m drawing your attention to:

The system, a THOR – Tactical High-power Operational Responder, has been in development for several years, producing high-power energy to disable and shoot down drones.

Here is the Tweet from the US military show-casing this new weapon:


Here’s the full video:


Watch all those drones just ‘drop’ to the floor, all at once!

Here’s another google translated snippet from Mako:

The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory unveiled THOR about three years ago. In a live demonstration, the system was able to disable a drone using electromagnetic waves. The system is developed to combat flocks of drones and UAVs, and unlike other conventional methods, which use precise directed energy to neutralize individual UAVs and drones, it works this way when it is able to neutralize multiple UAVs and UAVs in one go….

The U.S. also said it would be a mobile system that could be deployed anywhere and quickly. Its operation will be simple and will be done by a small team of two or three soldiers.

Remember what happened at Meron?

Remember what happened at the Seoul Halloween ‘crowd crush’, last year?

‘Nuff said.

    רבי אליהו אבוטבול
    אחים יקרים להתעורר היכונו לביאת המשיח הגאולה ה׳תשפ״ג מפי הצדיק הנסתר רבינו שלום

    🌍 !!!!!!!!צדיק נסתר מתריעה: בענין הגאולה ה׳תשפ״ג! 🔥 הגענו לגמר!

    בס”ד – ערוץ חבלי משיח עוסק בכל מה שקשור לזמני הגאולה לפני ביאת המשיח, אחרית הימים – גם בגשמי וגם ברוחני.

    חבלי משיח ביהדות הם הייסורים שיקדמו לזמנו של המשיח, כמו חבלי לידה
    כל מי שרוצה להינצל מהייסורים בזמני חבלי משיח: יעסוק בתורה, במצוות, בגמילות חסדים, ובזוהר הקדוש! צפייה מהנה!

    !שנזכה לאתחלתא דגאולה
