Every week people ask me what kind of a chassid I am Breslov, Chabad and so one. But no, I am striving to become a real Chassid. That is a person who true to do his outmost to become as a good person as possible. This includes:
And much more.
And it is up to us to reach that point. We can´t blame others for succeeding. It is up to us. But we have to accept different tools that are offered to us and for sure we can also take help from others that can help us reaching higher.
Jews who are living in Galut by their own free will and have no desire or will to move to the Land of Israel can´t mourn Yerushalayim in an honest way. You can compare it to somoen crying out for a nice steak at a vegan restaurnat. The only way to be able to mourn and feel what we are missing is by living in the Holy Land.

How indoctrinated are our brothers in Chutz L´aretz? How many Anti-Semitic occurrences must happen before the Jews in Galut understand that the statement “Jews it is time to come home” is really true? These are not just incidents that are happening, it is from above – from God. this is God´s way to show us, that it is time to come home and leave the Gashmiut of Galut behind.
Gashmiut, especially in the darkness of Galut is Avodah Zarah (Idol Worship) where a person’s status in the Jewish Community and Society mainly depends on their bank account and occupation and not their Torah and Jewish values. The famous author Tzvi Fishman wrote an excellent novel that really pinpoint the problem by the name “On Eagles Wings” that you also can find in his book Days of Mashiach. Here you can read about the stubborn, very rich South African businessman Mervyn Levy who refused to move to Israel before “Almighty Himself, or at least the Mashiach, to bring him to Zion” because this was what his poor and uneducated Rabbis had taught him.
Jews it is time to come home before it is to late
It is not only anti-Semitism that is a sign from God that the statement “Jews it is time to come home” is true. It also includes lack of Jewish education such as lack of Jewish day schools and Yeshivot. We also have to remember that assimilation and intermarriage also are hints from God to the Jewish people that is it time to come home, and to come home is to move to Israel. Not in any way to build are strengthen Jewish communities in Galut. But it is very important for you Jews to come home before it is too late, so you have time to sell your home, company, real estate and more without the worries of having to do fast and bad decisions and deals because time is running out for you. As we all know, God have pity on his Chosen Nation but not on stupidity. Such as believing that staying in Chutz L´aretz is still a solution and we just need some more patience. That everything will be fine again. Anti-Semitism will end, assimilation will disappear, and Internet marriages will not exist any longer.
Time to come home and build the Jewish Future
The Jewish future is in our hands and in the Land of Israel. There are no excuses for not saying “it is time to come home”. The state of Israel may be far from an optimal Jewish State but what can we do about it? The state is inside the biblical borders of Eretz Yisrael and we have a Torah obligation to live here. Thank God, the modern state of Israel has seen many blessings and God do bestow us with his mercy and blessings every day. We are one of the world leading countries and the Jewish economy is blossoming. From the Jewish perspective, no place in the world can you find a better and more fulfilling Jewish life. Everything that we need to be Jewish and stay Jewish is available here and accessible to all of us. We know that our children can chose from a broad range of Jewish Education such as Jewish Day Schools, Yeshivot, Seminars and much more. It is here that the Jewish future is possible, and it is here in the Land of Israel God want us to be. As mentioned before, to live in Chutz L´aretz is a punishment from God and the Gashmiut that destroy your Jewish soul in Galut is Avodah Zarah!
I strongly believe that any person working as a Rabbi needs to have a license in addition to their Rabbinical Ordinance. And this license should be renewed on a regular basis. Why? Because they are serving the public and people have great trust in them. And as we have seen in to many cases with Rabbis. They are abusing vulnerable people because they can, and they know that people trust them. Many times, without question their motives or the inappropriate behavior that they suggest.
And why should they not need a license when for example tour guides, real estate agents, doctors and lawyers need it to practice?
If you can give a good answer, be my guest!
The last Rabbi was Rav Shmuel Tal, the Head of Yeshivat Torat Chaim in Yad Binyamin. Even though he had having inappropriate relationships with female followers, major leading Rabbis still agree that he can continue to teach and head his Yeshiva but not seek any guidance from him.
But he is not the only Rabbi. We have for example:
Moti Elon that abused boys in his Yeshiva not once but twice. The second time after he was welcomed back again.
Ezra Sheinberg former head of the Orot HaAri Yeshiva in Safed. Convinced of sexual crimes against 8 women.
Eliezer Berland head of the Shuvu Bonim sect for improper sexual relations with women.
To cover your head with a wig does it fulfill the purpose?
A wig is not the spiritually right way to cover your head, because as long as only one person may think that it is your own hair, then you are not fulfilling the purpose of covering your head. Because you don´t want people to see that you are covering your head. The reason is to cover your head, so people can see that you are married.
