The damage done by ‘geula’ blogs

You probably remember that a few long weeks ago, I posted up some stuff here about the importance of the Rav getting to Uman for 5784.

If you don’t, there is a good translation of some of the warnings that R Shalom Arush and the kabbalist R Shlomo Elmaliach gave over TWO WEEKS BEFORE ROSH HASHANA, about what was going to happen, if the Rav didn’t get to Uman for Rosh Hashana this year.

Go HERE for the full article, this is a snippet:

Everyone saw the suffering and persecution which Rav Berland took onto himself over the entire past decade.

All of this was in order so that the redemption would come with mercy “and not in the sign of the Akrav [Scorpio – i.e the month of Cheshvan] with rivers of blood,” in the words of Rav Berland shlit”a.

However, wicked spiritual powers, which Rav Elmeliach calls the “Satan,” entered into their messengers and they mamash ran amok with the most extremist behavior, as if Rav Berland coming to Uman would be the most terrible thing….

To our great sorrow, the messengers of the Satan succeeded in thwarting all Rav Berland’s efforts to make it to Uman on Rosh Hashanah 5784.

The Tzaddikim and Kabbalists were horrified, since all of them understood that Rav Berland’s coming to Uman at such a time of a spiritual war was critical. Thousands of Rav Berland’s followers — Breslov Chasidim and Tzaddikim from Israel and around the world — attempted to sweeten the decree by saying Tehilim and screaming to Heaven.

To our grief, the messengers succeeded and in fact a harsh decree like no other came down on our heads.


Man, did it ever.

They’ve stopped publicising the numbers of murdered, but I have a feeling it is going to climb well over 2,000 – just the people from Simchat Torah.

And there are still 3,000 wounded, some very seriously, plus the hostages.

Plus there are now hundreds of thousands of soldiers who left their homes, families and jobs to sleep in tents with very basic amenities, as a precursor to risking their lives, mamash, to fight for the Jewish people.


The Rav told us all, repeatedly over the last few days, that we need to turn off all the lying news, all the distracting (at best…) social media and just concentrate on saying a whole book of tehillim a day, if we’re women, while the men need to be aiming for 10 pages of Gemara a day.

And if they can’t do that, then a book of tehillim, which can be fitted in around work calls, and recited while travelling on buses to work etc.

That is what the Tzaddik HaDor is now telling us is required, to save the Jewish people from the ongoing harsh decrees that he knows way more about, than we do.


This morning, I got this email:

Hi. The reason I said about Rav Berland and about Uman that it doesn’t matter if he gets there or not is that I believed totally that moshiach was going to be here last year.

All the predictions I read pointed to that.

I still can’t get over the fact that he didn’t come. I’m trying my hardest to do the right stuff and I know other pple who r doing the same I’m just afraid that as time goes on pple will get used to the new reality and lose focus on bringing moshiach.

If weeks or months go by pple might get too sad and give up. I can totally see that happening. Thanks.


This is what I wrote back to my correspondent:

The main thing here is to stop thinking we know better than the real tzaddikim.

It’s an inyan of humility, that’s all. What do any of us know?

So much misinformation, false leaders, deliberate lies and our own biases clouding the issues…. what do any of us know?

The Rav said now to do a book of tehillim every day – I’m doing my best to do that not because I enjoy, but just because the Rav said that is what is required now.

Maybe, try to get a group of women together over there, if you didn’t already, and get as many people as possible doing tehillim.

Just because the Rav said.


I just spent ten seconds looking at a couple of so-called ‘geula’ blogs, which are just continuing to waste their time and everyone elses with more pointless ‘speculation’ about Moshiach coming.

Anyone who lives in Israel right now, and who is really connected to what is going on here, is living the REALITY of geula, the essence of it, which is to make God a felt reality in our lives, humble ourselves and make a lot of real teshuva.

Great, that there are people in chul who apparently have so much time to waste on yet more of those ‘predictions’ that stopped at least one of my readers from doing what the Rav asked for, before Rosh Hashana 5784, i.e. really joining in the prayers and other efforts to get him to Uman, to sweeten the decrees.

Personally, I’ve been spending the last few days attending funerals, shivas, saying tehillim 4 1/2 hours a day, going to the Rav’s prayers every night, trying to put out as much ‘light’ to others here, who are doing a fantastic job of keeping things together as their husbands and sons and fathers disappear to the Gaza border, while we continue to being rocketed.

I have zero time for all these pointless ‘predictions’ of when Moshiach is meant to be coming, because I am actually trying to spend my time productively, following what the Tzaddik HaDor is telling us needs to be done now, to prevent more tragedies occurring.


No-one in Israel is ‘forgetting’ about geula – we are living that reality every single second right now.

And there is a lot of sadness here about what happened – but also so much emuna and strength and teshuva, that you can FEEL that at least for the people in Eretz Yisrael, who are doing what they are meant to be doing right now, this is all going to come good, hopefully with very few additional ‘sacrifices’ required.


Bottom line:

Stop wasting your time on pointless blogs, social media commentators and journalists that know nothing, at best – assuming they aren’t being paid to manipulate and decieve you on purpose – and just get with the Tzaddik HaDor and what he is telling us to do.

Sure, you didn’t take it seriously before Rosh Hashana that the Rav needed to get to Uman, and you were wrong about that.

So now, make teshuva and don’t make the same mistake again.

God has a lot of patience for us all, but at some stage, we have to have the humility to admit we don’t know anything – at all!

And the Tzaddik HaDor has given us a big job to do to get all this sweetened.

So turn off all that pointless ‘geula blog’ stuff you are reading, and pick up your Sefer Tehillim, and do something real and constructive to bring geula and moshiach the sweet way.


May we have good news very soon.

    I said one ‘Tikun Haklali’ today. That’s good for me.

    I have this -afraid- feeling, that I’m not going to be able to keep serving God all the days of my life (God forbid), that I’ll fail and “fall away” (God forbid).
    But I realize that this is another anti-faith-in-God idea, and must be uprooted. May God help me to do so.

      Even a tzaddik falls seven times… just get back up and start serving God again to the best of your ability if and when that happens.

      The only difference between a ‘rasha’ and a ‘tzaddik’ is that the ‘tzaddik’ doesn’t give up on himself – or on God.

        Has Rav Berland “fallen” before?
        Usually we either hear about him that he’s either perfect (which is probably almost true), without speaking about any times he might have ‘sinned,’ or that he’s the worst person ever, worse than “Shabtai Tzvi” and Hitler, and an evil rapist (100% slander).

        • Rivka Levy
          Rivka Levy says:

          Every body ‘falls’ – but the falls of holy people like the Rav are not like the falls of you and me.

          Look at Moshe Rabbenu – he ‘fell’ by hitting the rock instead of speaking to it, and was judged very harshly for it.

          Most of us could never reach the level of ‘falling’ like Moshe Rabbenu did in a million, billion years.

          ALSO – everyone is just a ‘mirror’, but that’s particularly true for tzaddikim.

          It’s a sure thing, that anyone who is accusing him of being ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ is either connected to the Sabbateans themselves, or some other cult.

          And anyone who compares him to Hitler, God forbid – clearly just wants to uproot the Jewish people and God from the world.

          Check it out – it never fails.

      The problem is the biggest and most vicious antisemites in the world are ‘watching the store’ here in Israel.

      They also don’t buy the idea that we are God’s Chosen people, or that Jews have a right to live in Eretz Yisrael….

        Hava says:

        You know it’s a crazy idea that just because our enemies don’t believe in haShem, or what He says about us, that we should stop repeating it, right?

        Are you saying that I’m actually HARMING the effort, rather than contributing to it?

        Is my blog one of those that you say is damaging things?
