Recently, the Rav's followers had to hire another top lawyer, and had to go through more legal challenges in the Israeli court, to try to force the Government and the Israeli Prison Service to release the Rav's medical files, so they could see what's really going on with him.
As soon as they finally managed to get the information, they saw that the Rav's health is now in a very precarious state, and that he urgently requires a complicated surgery.
Even then, the courts tried to block the Rav from having the treatment he requires, and Shuvu Banim had to go back to court again to fight for the Rav to recieve the life-saving treatment he requires.
People, how clear can it that this never was about 'justice' and has only been about persecuting and harming a huge tzaddik, right from the beginning?!?
The Israeli government has a habit of trying to 'eliminate' people it doesn't like, by fair means or foul, and that's exactly what's going on here with Rav Berland.
In the meantime, the Rav's emergency surgery has been schedule for today, Monday, February 13, 2017.
The situation is pretty serious and the Rav urgently needs our prayers. Please say a tikkun haklali, a chapter of tehillim, or any other words of prayer you can for Eliezer ben Ettia.
If you can make it, there's also a prayer rally being held for the Rav's recovery today at 3pm, at Kever Rachel.
This is not at all a simple matter, and many things that will affect all of Am Yisrael for the good or the opposite, God forbid, and tied up with the Rav's recovery.
Another thing you can do to help is to DONATE to the cost of the Rav's surgery. Again, his followers had to hire private doctors to make sure he's being treated properly, and they cost a fortune. They currently have a shortfall of around 130,000 shekels that they need to find in the next 24 hours or so, in order to be able to pay for the Rav's surgery, plus the necessary medical care he needs while he's recovering.
Again, this is much more about US than is about HIM.
God is testing every single one of us at the moment, to see where our heart really lies, and whether we're kind, compassionate Jews who will go the extra mile for God and his tzaddikim - or not.
Rav Berland's battles are really our own, and we have to do everything we can to help him through this very difficult period of time.
