A thousand books

Long story short: a thousand books of the Rav’s Conversations II are now being printed in Eretz Yisrael, BH. Usually, we print 100 – 200 copies of these books, and hope for the best. But for some reason, I got a strong ‘push’ in my hitbodedut to print 1,000 copies of this book: ==== The last […]

Some thoughts on our leaders making teshuva

All our leaders are corrupted scum. Hopefully, we can at least agree on that. All the ‘leaders’ you hear about, that have all the PR, the adoring write-ups, the social media groupies – if they get anywhere at all in this world, you can assume they are working for ‘the other side’. And if that […]

The heart of flesh

Rebbe Nachman himself made it clear: In the end, everyone will be ‘Breslov’. But what does it mean, to actually ‘be Breslov’? That you grow long payot, go to Uman, do hitbodedut for an hour every day, dance on a few vans? Some and none of this is for sure part of the authentic experience of trying to ‘be […]

Milei-Milikowsky: A deep dive

The story begins with an email a reader sent me, that contained this image: ***UPDATES BELOW – HIS DEAD DOG HAS ITS OWN WIKI PAGE*** The reader wanted to know if this could be real, and if so, could our PM and the Argentian PM actually be related? I didn’t know. But given what happened […]

Milei-Milikowsky Part 2

OK, so now let’s get back to the Milikowsky-Lurie family. (You can see Part 1 HERE) Thank God, for genealogy sites that preserve information that is otherwise scrubbed off the net. Back on the Jewishbubba.blogspot site mentioned above, there’s another post that starts to fill in more of the picture of who this family of […]

The next stage of birur

I have a lot I want to try to convey, but the words are not really coming. So, let’s sum it up like this today, as things continue to percolate into place: THE BAD IS NOT GOING TO WIN. Not in a million, billion, trillion years. It doesn’t matter what they throw at us, how […]

Coming soon

==== This is the mock-up of the cover – but still a little while to go to finalise the book, BH. Thanks to everyone for their well-wishes. I basically got ‘covided’ for the last 10 days – migraines, total loss of appetite, couldn’t taste anything, very weak, and currently that side has improved, but now […]

The tipping point

The last few days, I’ve been up North with my husband. ***UPDATES BELOW*** We went to a zimmer in the Akko area, where it was green, quiet and beautiful. Before that, we had a massive argument, because my husband didn’t want to go anywhere that was ‘being bombed’ – and just after I booked the […]

Conversations II – says it all

I am putting the finishing touches to Conversations II, BH. So slow posting again until Wednesday. But in the meantime, I wanted to put up the contents page for the book, with the headings of the classes and topics the Rav covered the last couple of years. It really says it all. And it made […]
