They mean a great deal to me.
I'm taking a short break - I'm not giving up, BH, but I do need to recuperate a little. There is so much going on in the world, and so much that COULD be said, but I have the impression that God wants each of us to stop relying on 'opinions' from others, and to connect straight to him, and his real Tzaddikim.
I will start posting again as soon as I have the strength to do it, hopefully it won't be so long. In the meantime, I highly recommend that you keep checking out the English language site of Shuvu Banim, HERE. More and more stories are starting to come out, both about some of the terrible things that are happening to the Rav's persecutors, and also (more importantly) about some of the many, many miracles that are going on.
These things are only going to intensify, the closer we get to geula.
It's very hard to believe in our true tzaddikim, especially at this stage of the game. We need to keep praying for God to show us the truth, and to stay far, far away from anyone - any person, any website, any organisation - that is not 100% connected to kedusha and our real tzaddikim, because it's SO easy to get confused by wolves in (frum Jewish) sheep's clothing.
BH, we'll all hear good news soon, and all of our difficulties will start to abate.
The last thing I wanted to post up for now is details of the makeshift shul where you can see the Rav for yourself (bring a ladder, if you're a lady...) and daven with him.
It's located at the end of the Ido HaNavi cul de sac in Morasha, directly opposite the main Meah Shearim road. Just walk down the road, and look out for the ladders on your left-hand side.
The Rav davens shacharit at 4.30am, and mincha-maariv very close to shkia, currently around 7.30pm (but come earlier if you want a good spot.)
You can pass notes and pidyons to him directly during davening, BUT his gabbay-bouncers-security guards (appointed by the court...) are no longer letting people pass their kids up to the Rav, as it's been taking a huge toll on his health. (Remember, barely a month ago he had a kidney removed, and three serious surgeries...)
It's amazing to see how protective these guys are of the Rav.
So please treat the Rav with the appropriate respect and consideration, if you do go to see him.
BH, I'll be back as soon as I regain my strength.
