…help…help…

…help…help…, by Rabbi Nati at Mystical Paths, is reprinted with the kind permission of Reb Akiva M, from Mystical Paths,

As we here in Israel stood and waited silently for a moment yesterday to contemplate the Holocaust of 60 odd years ago, a chapter is being written in the Final Solution. As was then it is now. We are being duped and lulled into beleieving that all is well. We have failed to be concious of the fact that they are swaying pulbic opinion and setting the stage for the final deinfestation of this world of the Holy people.

Yom Ha’atzmaut (Israeli independence day) is the yaretzheit of Am Yisroel (the Jewish People). Why? Because the State is the antithesis of the the Am Kodesh (the Holy Nation).

The plan is falling into place as this is being written. The players are setting up for the final act. Israel was termed by Colon Powell when he was US Secretary of State as the “lastest and last ghetto for the Jews”.

As of late I’ve been targeted for wanting the Geulah! This is a revolution in their eyes, dangerous for world or national order. With this post I may be committing suicide. The Israel Internal Security Service, the Shabak, has interrogated me nightly, all night, every night, ALL WEEK, on the revolution that Breslov and the Tzaddik of Meah Shearim are setting up. The one called Moshiach and the Geulah.

My house is literally being watched, my phone has literally been tapped. I’ve been grilled for hours and hours on … prayer, tikun chazot, hisbodedut, the teachings of my rebbe, HaRav Shalom Arush, shlita, mikvah, and Moshiach and the Geulah. Hours and hours and hours on end of literal interrogation, yanked from my bed, pulled from my house in front of my children, night after night.

It appears to me they are in the process of trying to set up the Tzadik HaRav Shalom Arush, shlita and his followers as right wing religious zealots who want turn over the world, or at least the Israeli government. And the side of evil literally are killing people over their fear of what will be.

I’ve been pulled in and questioned in what I’m told is the “most nice manner”. I am not permitted to turn off my cell phone and required to have it on me at all times. When I have, they’ve arrived quickly and screamed “what do you think you’re doing???”

I believe this all in an effort to form a picture to sell to the world to prove that we are dangerous and must be dealt with harshly. Yet the only revolution we are selling is one of teshuvah and connecting to Hashem.

This sounds so much like the propaganda machines of the past, of the Nazi’s (y’m), of the Communists, of the dictators.

Things are running on a dead end track to disaster. The disengagement is exploding in our faces, literally daily (color red alert, color red alert). The division of the holy city is about to take place. The holy prophets foretold of this many years ago and now it is finally here.

My friends and family have seen me taken away, they’ve heard the men inform me they were secret police. I indeed fear an ‘accident’ or ‘heart attack’ soon.

In the past 2 weeks, 3 of the largest rabbi’s against the government plans have ‘sickened’. In the past, Rabbi Kahane was murdered, Prime Minister Rabin was assasinated, Knesset Member Zeezy was murdered, even Prime Minister Sharon suffered a sudden mysterious improperly treated ailment. (Getting a little paranoid, well a week of all night interrogations will do that to you.)

Hashem YeRachem! Please call out to the King of Kings and ask for Him to help us. I’m just a rabbi who wants to help and teach people to live right and free themselves from fear, who wants peace in the world, without weapons, a world where we can express our love of Hashem without fear. Please may it come.

That’s my revolutionary message, G-d help me!

Since I all I been doing is making the few videos and podcast’s you’ve seen here, learning Torah in HaRav Arush, shlita’s yeshiva, and talking to people about connecting to Hashem, I can only assume that this is exactly what the other side is afraid of.

My friends, I’m asking for your help. First, if you don’t hear that I’m safe, published here at least once a week, please assume I’m not. I have a wife and children, I’d like to be around to take care of them.

Second, if the other side is pushing so hard against just a few words about connecting to Hashem and trying to bring the geulah, we must have hit on something right. I am asking for your help, just some small donations, to set up a completely legal properly documented charity organization (here in Israel and a 501(3)(c) in the US) to begin to publicize connecting with Hashem, and crying out together to HaKodesh Baruch Hu to bring the Geulah!

We already have ideas for a night of prayer, videos on related Torah teachings, and have actually prepared the ultimate petition, a rabbinically approved petition to HaKodesh Baruch Hu, the Beis Din shel Mala and the Beis Din shel Mata, for Geulah.

In Meron on Lag B’Omer this year there will be, G-d willing, 500,000 Jews. Would it not be great to get all of them to pray in union of heart and soul for the coming redemption??? I think so, and I’d like to make it happen with a special pamphlet of tikun chazot (the midnight prayer lamenting the destructions of the Beis HaMikdash and crying out for it’s rebuilding), but we need to work fast to make it happen.

Thank you, truly thank you, for your support and prayers.
Rabbi Nathanel Levi ben Yitchok and Chana Sara Kinstein M’Breslev.

UPDATE! Since making this post, mid-morning the secret police stopped by Rabbi Nati’s home to collect him again! Fortunately, he was out at the grocery store buying food for Shabbat and had left his tracked cell phone at home.

Kedoshim (Leviticus 19-20) – Growing Pains

Following are some excerpts from the essay “Growing Pains“, which I strongly recommend you read, it’s a must. This essay is written by Rabbi Nosson Weisz, of AISH.com, who writes in his section Mayanot, Wellsprings.

We Jews subscribe to the belief that the world is run by Divine Providence. God obligated Himself under the terms of the Covenant that He signed with us, the Jewish people, at Mt. Sinai, to treat us as the most beloved treasure of all peoples (Exodus 19:5). The very undertaking to provide Jews with special treatment assumes a world subject to Divine direction. Since it is quite unthinkable to suspect God of deliberately violating His agreements, we are forced to conclude that the events of Jewish history constitute an exact demonstration of God’s interpretation of this obligation to treat us as His most beloved treasure. Needless to say, in light of the horrors that the Jewish people have endured over the centuries, especially the most recent horror of the Holocaust, the perception of our ‘treasured’ status is problematic to say the least.

With an eye to discharging this Jewish civic obligation, this essay focuses on the current conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. We are totally demoralized by daily acts of senseless terror perpetrated by people who enthusiastically sacrifice their lives to create havoc and murder against innocent civilians. No matter what solution we attempt, we seem quite helpless to stop the carnage. To add to our national frustration, a large part of the ‘civilized’ world regards us Jews as the perpetrators of the very violence of which we are the victims. Why is this happening to us? Why can’t we reach a peaceful accommodation with our Palestinian neighbors no matter what concessions we offer?

Israel faces its greatest existential threat in its history.

Just finished reading Rabbi Lazer Brody’s, Emuna News Special Report: The Sword on Israel’s Jugular. Which states the following:
Israel faces its greatest existential threat in its history. At this very moment, every single city, town, and village between the northern border and Dimona is a push-button away from oblivion, for the triple menace of missiles from Syria, Hizbollah, and Iran rest like a sharp sword on Israel’s Jugular.

Is there anything we can do? Most of us are hundreds or thousands of miles away, in our own communities; yet our very being cries out: What can we do?
Here my dear brethren are some ideas that we can start puting into action immediately.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, taught us that, yes, there is something we can do.
The Rebbe taught us the power of a mitzvah.
A mitzvah, a G-dly deed, has the power to reach deep into the core of our being–where we are all one, and the physical distance between us is of no consequence. At this core, a positive deed on our part will help bring salvation to a brother and sister in distress.
During past conflicts in the Land of Israel, and during times of danger for the Jewish people, the Rebbe made practical suggestions of mitzvot that would elicit G-d’s blessings and protection.
Let us not underestimate the power of good! With a single good deed on our part, here and now, we can each contribute toward the victory and safety of our fellow Jews in Israel.
Take a minute to do one or more of the following. You can make a difference!

Torah study

Say a prayer for the soldiers of the IDF, and for all residents of the Holy Land (suggestion: Psalm 20 is traditionally said in times of distress).

Charity and acts of kindness: Put a coin in a charity box, give a gift of money to a fellow in need or to a charitable cause, or extend a helping hand to someone who needs it.

Tefillin: If you already put on tefillin every day, encourage a friend to do so. If you don’t yet, now is a good time to start!.

Mezuzah: If you don’t yet have a mezuzah get one now! If you already do have one, it may be time to have it checked to ensure that the words on the parchment have not faded.

Tzitzit: start wearing tzitzit even during the night, and even while sleeping.

As Rabbi Brody say’s “Let’s invoke Divine compassion by turning the tides of assimilation and spiritual contamination with a worldwide return to Hashem. Our lives depend on it”.

From the Orchards of Jerusalem

The Slonomer Rebbe on the opening verses of Parshas Vayakel.

The Gemorah Avoda Zara says the only reason Israel sinned by the golden calf is to teach the reality of tshuva to the masses and Moshe is telling Israel that the good path to tshuva is with the power of Shabbos.

As it says in Gemorah Shabbos, “All who keep Shabbos, according to its laws, will be forgiven, even if they had worshiped idols like the generation of Enosh.”

The worst sinners, the Gemorah Shabbos tells us, even the likes of the generation of Enosh, would have an atonement with the observance of a single Shabbos. Not surprising, says the Slonomer Rebbe, since Shabbos is at the core of love and closeness to Hashem.

Giving up on Shabbos, is giving up on life. Or rather its gaining the 7 day work schedule of a Canaanite.

Israel supporters worldwide must organize massive rallies and public prayer vigils in memory of those killed in the Thursday attack on a yeshiva in Jerusalem, Jewish Agency Chairman Ze’ev Bielski wrote in a letter to Jewish leaders this week.

 

“We must unite and bring word of this attack to all corners of the world, to expand the circle of support and identification with Israel’s ongoing struggle against terror,” Bielski wrote in the letter.

 

‘The entire country is in need of mercy’

The head of the yeshiva, Rabbi Yaakov Shapira was the first to speak:

“We are all in need of mercy, the entire country,” Shapira cried.

“Pray for all of us and give good counsel to the families, to the anguished friends.”

Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar was weeping as well. “We have paid with our best boys, who were sitting by their talmuds … torah was their entire world, they are the roses that have been picked … and God will have mercy on us for their merit.

Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski also addressed the crowd:

“Lord, nations have invaded your land, desecrated your holy hall, eight of our sweet loved ones, may God avenge their blood, who only yesterday were living amongst us, are no longer with us. Their lives were severed by lowly murderers … but the murderer did not wish to target them alone, but rather each and every one of us, each and every resident of the holy city of Jerusalem.

For many years our enemies have been trying to ruin our lives, to harm us as much as they can. Jerusalem has paid heavily in blood, and the long long list was joined last night by our eight sons.”
