The folks at Shuvu Banim are working on it - with some very kind, timely help from a volunteer, because otherwise it would cost a packet to sort all this stuff out - but it seems to be quite a thorough job and could take a while yet to figure it all out.
In the meantime, I'm reposting here the details for how to contribute to the emergency fund that's been set up to pay for the specialist doctors to fly into Israel, to hopefully save the Rav's leg from being amputated, by phone in English. (This is time-sensitive - the Rav has to come up with the money by Shabbat):
To donate by phone:
In Israel: 058-632-2207 (English)
In the US: 347-873-1222
The main Ka’ayal Ta’arog office number is 02-650-2929 (Hebrew)
If you go HERE, you can still donate via the Hebrew language page on the Hebrew Shuvu Banim site, which hasn't been maliciously hacked (so far...)
If you don't speak any hebrew, this is what the fields on that form are:
ס לתרומותהשם שלך (חובה) - THE NAME OF THE PERSON MAKING THE PAYMENT
האימייל שלך: (חובה) - YOUR EMAIL
הטלפון שלך:(חובה) - YOUR CONTACT PHONE NUMBER
התרומה שלך בש"ח - THE AMOUNT YOU WANT TO DONATE, IN SHEKELS
הודעה ושמות לברכה - ANY OTHER INFORMATION YOU WANT TO GIVE OVER, INCLUDING ANY NAMES TO RECEIVE A BLESSING FROM THE RAV
Then just press the blue button at the bottom of the form, and whoosh! You hopefully donated.
I'll update here if I get any more information.
HOW IS RAV OFER EREZ'S 'KA'AYAL TA'AROG' ORGANISATION CONNECTED TO ALL THIS?
Here's a very quick explanation. Rav Berland ran up a number of very big legal and medical bills over the last two years' of being persecuted, chased and wrongly imprisoned for crimes that he never committed in a 100 years.
As the Rav was either out of the country / incommunicado / behind bars / in hospital, Rav Ofer Erez (who's been a student of the Rav for more than 40 years), and his Ka'Ayal Ta'Arog outreach organisation stepped into the breach to try to cover Rav Berland's legal and medical expenses. (I can't begin to tell you about the mesirut nefesh of Rav Ofer Erez over the last little while, it would take me a month to even just cover all the bases.)
Around a year ago, Rav Ofer Erez decided to bring his Ka'Ayal Ta'arog organisation under the main umbrella of Shuvu Banim, so that all the fundraising could be streamlined into one main place.
So, Ka'Ayal Ta'Arog basically had the electronic infrastructure in place to cope with raising money to cover all these enormous legal and medical bills, so Rav Ofer put it at the service of the Rav, to help pay for the astronomical costs he's had to pay out recently, including legal bills, medical bills and the multi-million shekel cost of having to have a full security detail 24/7, as ordered by the courts.
(It's a post for another time, but so many of these bodyguards are fast on the road to become chassids, it's amazing to behold. One of them was recently showing the crowd photos of a midnight drive he took out to Kever Yosef, in Shechem. I hope someone will interview them soon, as it would make such a good story.)
That's why the Shuvu Banim site mentions Rav Ofer's 'Ka'Ayal Ta'Arog' organisation, on their donation pages etc.
So now you know.
While they're figuring out how to fix it (it could still end up costing them a bomb, as it's not an 'accidental' infection), the site is temporarily out of action - users are being redirected to non-kosher sites. DO NOT over-ride your anti-virus messages for ravberland.com at the moment.
As soon as the site is safe to visit again, they'll announce it and I'll hopefully also announce it here on Emunaroma.
Sigh. Can anyone really see this stuff going on and pretend that the people persecuting Rav Berland are anything except mentally ill, insane, hate-filled people?
If you'd like to donate to help Rav Berland, please go directly to Rav Ofer Erez's Ka'ayal Ta'arog webpage HERE:
Scroll down under the video of the Rav, and you'll see a box saying: רשום סכום לתרומה next to a yellow button. Stick in the amount you want to donate (in shekels) and press the yellow button. It will take you through to the paypal page where you can either pay with paypal, or with a credit card.
That form doesn't have a space for names for a blessing, so you can email any names for a blessing over to:
THIS EMAIL (click the pink).
OR alternatively, just call them on the numbers above on Emunaroma, and do it that way.
If / when I get the green light to share more details of what's really going on and who's behind it, I'll update you again. In the meantime, did anyone ever hear of anyone who was PRO Rav Berland doing anything like this?!?
