5784 is the year of geula – more hints from the Rav

Excerpt of a shiur given on Wednesday evening, 3rd Cheshvan 5784, to people from Ashdod.

(October 10th, 2023).

Everything in italics are direct quotes from the Rav.

Lots of hints here, about what is really going on behind the scenes.


We are now also in exile, they are firing rockets upon us, they are firing upon us like this.

There are sirens. Yesterday, two rockets exploded above my head, and I head the ‘booms’. All of Jerusalem heard the booms, because in Ramot, there is the Iron Dome.

And the Americans sent us more ‘Patriots’, they sent to us. They sent to us now another 2,000 marines, they sent.

Now, there are ships with two thousands commandos, because Hizballah fires rockets that are accurate, not like Hamas, that when they fire at Israel, they injure themselves – [when the rocket fell] on the hospital.

But by Hizballah, they are accurate, so a captain and two soldiers were killed.


So, if they continue their attack against Haifa or Tsfat – so ‘marines’ are the commandos. The commandos are called ‘marines’.

They were in Cuba. They were in a lot of the most critical places – in Venezuela, the government there was overthrown.

So, there are two thousand commandos now who intend to enter Lebanon, if the Hizballah even starts to play around a little bit.

They want Eretz Yisrael to be returned [to them].


“You are robbers!”[1]

This is the only Rashi that they know. Shuvu Banim doesn’t learn this Rashi, but Hizbollah learns this Rashi – and also Hamas.

We will read the first Rashi, and we’ll also start to learn Rashi, it’s not a big deal. Even if you are Shuvu Banim, your allowed to learn this first Rashi, it’s not a sin – not deRabbanan and not deOraita.

So, what does the first Rashi say?

Rabbi Yitzhak says that the Torah shouldn’t begin with Bereishit and the creation of the world, but rather, ‘from this month’ (i.e. The first mitzvah the Jews were commanded to do, to sanctify the New Moon.)

And on top of that – what’s with all these verses? Why is it so lengthy? Say on the first day there was light; on the second day the rakia seperated between [the upper] waters and [the lower] waters; on the third day, the dry land was revealed, grass, plants, and fruit trees put out their fruits; fourth day, sun, moon and stars….

Why do you need to lengthen it out so much?

And after this, the reptiles were created, and winged birds and fish. Two words, one verse, is enough for each day. Why do we need to drag it out?


[In the description in Bereishit] there are 31 verses here!

And another three, makes 34 verses. What do we need so very many verses for? It’s possible to cover it all in just one verse, that on day one there was light, heaven and earth, and on day two the rakia (firmament) to seperate between water and water, and on day three the earth grows grass, plants and dry ground, and fruit trees produce their fruits, and on day four this is the sun, moon and stars – this is two words, that’s all!

Sun, moon and stars, and afterwards: the Leviathan and it’s partner, and all the birds and the fish – this is day five. After this, man and all the animals [on day six].

It’s enough to give three or four words for each day. Three or four words times six days is 18 words altogether. And you can even fit 18 words into one sentence.

What is all this big lengthening it out, here?


So, Rashi says that all the extensiveness is only in order to give koach (strength) to His deeds, that are being recounted to His people.[2]

So, twice koach (חכ) is [the gematria] of 784.

Koach times koach – is 5784 [the current Hebrew year].

This is the year of geula.


Rashi says:

“To give koach (strength) to His deeds, that are being recounted to His people” – to  give them the inheritance of the non-Jews, when the nations  of the world come and will say you are robbers!

This is what the Hizballah are crying out, we are fighting a legitimate war!


Now in Belarus, they put out an article in the newspapers that we are all with the Palestinians.

Now they quoted all the journalists in the whole world – journalists in Berlin and Paris. So now Belarus, which is the most important place in the whole world, this is ‘White Russia’, Vilna was there, and it’s all the border of Lithuania – so there, they said we are with the Palestinians.

And the Palestinians are right, Eretz Yisrael belongs to them.


That’s why Biden is coming here, to give Eretz Yisrael to them.

Just, they didn’t come to the meetings. So, what can you do? But his goal was to give them Eretz Yisrael, to evacuate Ashdod, and Ashkelon. Where were they going to evacuate Ashdod to? To Gaza!

They were going to bring the residents of Gaza to Ashdod, and we would go and live in Gaza – like R Israel Najara.

Where did he live? In Gaza. Then, there was still no ‘Ashdod’, there was only Gaza.

The Vizhnitzer travelled immediately after Gaza was conquered [after the Six Day War] to prostrate himself on the grave [of R Israel Najara], and he said all the tehillim there for two hours.

And all the Hamasniks stood around and didn’t touch him, the Rebbe of Vizhnitz… from Haifa.

So, the first thing is we need to do is go and live in Gaza.



[1] See Rashi’s commentary to Bereishit, below.

[2] Rashi on Bereishit 1:1:

“IN THE BEGINNING OF. R’ Yitzhak said: (God) need not have begun the Torah but from “This month shall be for you” – because it was the first commandment Israel was commanded to perform. What is the reason that it began with the Book of Genesis?

It began like this because it wished to convey the message of the verse “The koach (power) of His acts He told to His people, in order to give them the estate of the nations.”

So that if the nations of the world will say to Israel, “You are robbers, for you conquered the lands of the seven nations who inhabited the Land of Canaan.”

Israel will say to them, “The whole earth belongs to the Holy One, Blessed is He. He created it and He gave it to them, and by His wish, He took it from them and gave it to us.”

    I was just learning parsha with my daughter and we’re told that Yaakov gave Eisav lots of different kinds of animals as well as jewels and precious gems and more monthly gifts for the time he was in Sukkot. He knew that they would return all of these gifts plus whatever decended from them over thousands of years when Moshiach comes. So, Eisav (USA/Europe) will return tribute to Moshiach and the Jewish people. It definitely fits into the category of the “estates of the nations.”

    Has the rav said anything more recently about this year being the geula? And what exactly has to happen before?

    Regarding David Bar Chaim’s article, how would you respond to what he says? I can see that it is folly, but what he says about making Rabbi Nachman seem “more down-to-earth human” or whatever, some could say that makes sense.

      Rivka Levy says:

      Read Rebbe Nachman’s books – especially Tzaddik and His Wisdom (the English titles).

      You’ll see Rebbe Nachman was ALWAYS written about in a ‘down to earth’ and human way.

      He himself described his tremendous struggles to serve Hashem and overcome his yetzers.

      That’s part of what attracted me to Breslov in the first place- Rebbe Nachman was actually a ‘real person’, right from the start, not just another puppet on a pedestal.
