For most of the last 15 or so years, I’ve been waiting for Moshiach to show up. But something weird happened as we moved into 5777 and that didn’t happen - I kind of gave up on Moshiach coming soon.
After more than a decade of really thinking it was NOW, imminent, today! Or at the very least, tomorrow!!!, we got to 5777, and it’s like I kind of gave up on the idea. Over Shabbat, I was reading the book ‘Tzaddik’, the English translation of Chayey Moharan, when I got to this passage:
“[The Rebbe] said that any date people gave for the coming of the Moshiach would certainly not be the date he would come. There are passages in the holy Zohar and elsewhere cursing all who make such calculations. [See Zohar Hadash, 12a, Sanhedrin 97b].
“For ‘the Son of David will only come when no-one is paying attention’ (Sanhedrin 97b).’…One thing is certain: any date someone gives on the basis of calculations as the date of his coming will quite definitely NOT be when he comes.”
IT’S NOT MOSHIACH’S JOB TO RESCUE US FROM OUR MISERY
Another reason Moshiach went AWOL in 5777 was explained by my husband, who commented that so many of us have kind of been holding out for Moshiach to come and rescue us from our misery.
Our bad financial patch, our health issue, our failing marriage, our beyond bad relationship with our parents or other family members - all of these things were meant to be ‘fixed’ by Moshiach, or so we thought. But now that Moshiach has kind of gone AWOL, more and more of us are waking up from our spiritual stupor and realizing that we have a lot of work to do ourselves to get on with making the changes and teshuva we need to fix our own issues.
Because Moshiach isn’t going to fix our bad middot and negative character traits that are really at the root of 99% of all our suffering. (In case you’re wondering, the other 1% is ‘tikkun’ stuff left over from previous lifetimes, that there’s simply no way of avoiding.)
Anyone who think Moshiach will come and ‘fix’ their anger problem, or magically give them emuna, or help them to stop being so arrogant all of the time, is completely deluding themselves about what Moshiach is here to do.
Sure, he may well give us a path, a derech, to help us fix and rectify our bad middot with his spiritual help and support, but the actual work itself is our job, and our job alone. To think otherwise is to hold a belief that is far more xtian than Jewish.
Moshiach doesn’t appear, wave his hands around theatrically and tells us all we’re ‘saved’ and going straight to heaven on his cheshbon. Moshiach is an orthodox Jew, remember.
So that’s another reason why Moshiach went AWOL in 5777, so more and more of us would actually stop making excuses for our own negative character traits and arrogance, and our own huge distance from Hashem, and get to work on trying to fix them ourselves. And ironically, the more effort we make in this respect, the faster Moshiach will get here, as it’s our bad middot that are holding him up.
Right now, if he showed up so many of us probably wouldn’t make the cut for the world to come. I’m not talking about being perfect, or anything approaching that. I’m talking about which way we’re facing, spiritually, whether we’re trying to really get closer to God, or the opposite, whether we’re trying to be more humble, and more compassionate and more truthful about our own problems and flaws, or still busy blaming everyone else (including God…) and feeling so angry about the rough ride we’re getting down here.
I know God has challenged me to acknowledge and rectify so many of my own more hidden, core flaws and issues this year. I also know that while I’ve made a dint in that work, it’s by no means completed. But hopefully, I’m at least facing in the right direction, spiritually-speaking (I hope…).
Which brings me on to the weirder part of what is probably going to be a very long post.
As I’ve written about on so many different occasions, I’m really NOT a big ‘conspiracy theorist’. It’s not that I don’t believe that evil forces are trying to take over the planet, and to hurt and kill human beings in any number of bizarre ways, and to spiritually corrupt the essence of humanity.
All this stuff is basic Judaism 101, and our sources talk a great deal about the power of the sitra Achra, and particularly about how hard it will be to cling to kedusha and emuna and Hashem at the end of days.
But emuna tells me that God is behind everything, and everyone in the world, and that it’s all ultimately for my good, so I just need to focus on what’s the message for me in all the evil / conspiracy theories / upside-down world of lies. And that’s what I usually try to do most of the time.
However, sometimes, ‘bigger’ stuff and my own ‘smaller’ stuff seem to intersect a little, and that’s what appears to be going on again in this post.
THE WEIRD ASLEEP HITBODEDUT SESSION
A couple of months ago, I had what I’ll call a pretty intense hitbodedut session. (Yes, I’m so sorry to be putting this stuff in here. I know every crazy old bat on the planet likes to push their ‘dreams’ and ‘visions’ as an excuse for claiming all sorts of prophetic abilities. I’m just including it here as background to a weird coincidence.)
Usually, they aren’t so exciting (at all!) but this time, I half dozed off and then I found myself standing on a beach, looking up at a purple sky - and seeing a couple of Chinese dragon-looking electric figures battle it out, while there was a huge pillar of dark cloud - like a twister stretching from heaven to earth - twirling around behind them.
An enormous Rav Berland suddenly appeared (like, really massive…) and told me to run behind him for shelter, as these two things battled it out in the sky. In turn, he was standing behind other Tzaddikim including Rebbe Nachman, and I could see how the Tzaddikim kind of had the people who were close to them in a bubble of protection.
I ran behind the Rav, round a stone structure by his foot (that I took to be the grave of Rebbe Nachman) and hid in there. End of weird hitbodedut dream.
I told my husband about it, (who sometimes worries that I'm going to lose all my credibility, by publicly talking about this stuff) but otherwise I kept my mouth shut. There’s enough crazy people on the internet going on about their dreams, and I didn’t really want to add to that particular problem.
Then, a little while back, I met up with one of my readers here on Emunaroma, Chana, who’s lovely and helped me a lot when I was feeling pretty ill and finished, a couple of months ago. We were talking about end of days stuff, etc, when she suddenly told me about an amazing dream she’d had:
In the dream, she saw a big dragon-like thing in the sky, and she heard a voice telling her to run for shelter, because the whole world was about to experience some terrible destruction. She found some sort of stone cave in the ground and hid in there. When she came out again, she saw a scene of utter destruction.
I was amazed. Chana was describing something very similar to what I’d experienced in my weird hitbodedut session.
So, I started to take my weird hitbodedut dream a little more seriously, and I started to entertain the idea that maybe, just maybe, the celestial interference that’s going on around our planet really is of the more ‘world changing’ variety, than I’d been letting myself think.
MORE ‘UNPRECEDENTED’ FREAK WEATHER
In the meantime, there’s been so much more weird weather going on all over the place, including an unprecedented night of lightning in the southwest of the UK, that saw 100,000 strikes of lightning in two hours - a world record!
Previously, the world record for the most number of lightning strikes an hour was 3,900 strikes at Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela. So 50,000 lightning strikes an hour in Cornwall on July 18, 2017 should have struck somebody as being a little weird and unusual.
Then, there’s all the freak fires going on all over the world, including in the US, in Portugal (where it killed 64 people) on June 17, 2017, in France, where 10,000 people were moved out of the holiday regions close to the St Tropez seaboard on July 26, 2017, and a few others besides.
As I write this, August 6, 2017, Europeans are being warned of a heatwave that’s been dubbed ‘Lucifer’, and that’s bringing 47 degree heat for many days to areas that usually don’t get above the low 30s in the Summer time (and even that’s considered to be unusually hot).
If you remember THIS post, I set out the whole, big long explanation from James McCanney about how the sun acts like a battery, and how all the objects in the solar system, including planet earth, are electrically charged.
Whenever you have ‘something’ coming in to the solar system on an elliptical orbit (like a huge, planet-sized comet, for example) - that causes a big spike in all the electricity that’s being created and discharged in the system.
The sun glows brighter; the solar wind sends down more electrons to planet earth, and more UVB rays…
If you’ve been following the ‘Electric People’ posts over on spiritualselfhelp.org, then you’ll know that all this stuff has a direct and immediate impact on planet earth, on human health, and also on every other living organism down here.
I’ve been trying to chart some of this stuff, and figure it out according to Torah sources, for a few months now, because IF THERE’S NO SOURCE FOR IT IN THE TORAH, IT’S NOT ‘REAL’, HOWEVER REAL IT MAY LOOK.
If not for the ‘Kochav Yaacov’, I wouldn’t give Nibiru a second glance. But…there’s a source in Torah, so the concept is definitely real, just we don’t really know how it will play out in the world.
So now, let’s come back to Chana, and some of things she shared with me when we met.
HUMAN PERCEPTION IS ALWAYS AT LEAST PARTLY IMAGINATION
Rebbe Nachman talks a lot about the need for people to rectify their imaginations, and he explains how an unrectified imagination is really the root cause of all evil in the world. We imagine people are out to get us, that they took away our parnassa, that God isn’t treating us fairly, that we’re 100% wonderful and everyone else is the problem.
Here’s what Chana, who used to be a medical professional before she left the field for moral reasons, shared with me on that topic:
“As you recall from our conversation, I mentioned about the brain’s activity and how it’s all connected to the vision. Since our eyes have a sort of ‘blind spot’, therefore our brain is constantly working to “fill in the blank”, in a manner of speaking. That gives us our perception, and creates a picture of our ‘reality’ that is really directly connected to, and affected by, what we ourselves think it is.”
“When the brain is connected to true information [i.e. holy words of Torah, spiritual ‘truth’ as defined by our Rabbis and Sages] it produces higher frequencies and becomes vibrant, which directly impacts the way a person experiences their own reality, as well as the ‘collective consciousness’ in general.” [In Jewish terms, this could clearly be referring to the Shechina, or Divine presence that’s associated with a gathering of Jews.]
“That’s why the brain has to be fed the right information in a repetitive manner, like reading Tehilim, praying, studying Torah. Hitbodedut is very important because it’s clears the mind from worries and helps us to realize a positive attitude towards life.
"The lower frequencies makes the brain depressed, scared, and apathetic. That flow of the brain is the base of all propaganda, commercials, and politics, and all the social pressure that occurs as a result. The best example of this is Nazi Germany, where their propaganda machine was based on repetition only. In our time, the establishment has gone even further, and has started beaming certain frequencies directly into people’s brains. See the below:
WHAT THE HECK IS ‘HULU’?
Ok, so I have to admit to being pretty skeptical at this stage, because believe it or not, I’m pretty skeptical about everything until I’ve thoroughly researched it myself! (And I highly suggest you do the same).
But after I actually watched this clip, at least some of my skepticism fell away, because the last few months I’ve been researching how the transmission frequencies (hertz) used by things like FM radio, TV, internet, cell-phones (and all the ‘top secret’ radar stuff going on around army bases that no-one is even discussing…) is in the range of frequencies that can and do DIRECTLY IMPACT the physical and mental functioning of the human mind and body.
(Take a look at THIS and THIS, to see what I’m on about.)
So, I’m still not sure who the ‘they’ being referred to in this clip about TV And ‘Hulu’ being used to change people’s personalities and turn everyone into brain-dead zombies is really referring to (and remember, I don’t really care because everyone and everything is God…) but because our Sages have continually warned us of the grave spiritual dangers involved with TV, movies, i-Phones and the internet, I have absolutely no problem believing that part could definitely be true.
(I’ll be taking more of an investigative look at this stuff from a scientific perspective over on www.spiritualselfhelp.org in the meantime, so stay tuned.)
Another reason why I’m taking at least some of the premise that governments may be using social and mass media to experiment on the human nervous system and change people’s personalities at least a little bit seriously, is because every day, I’m coming across examples of where that *could* be happening.
To put it simply, there is a huge chasm between the reasoning abilities, mental grasp and spiritual outlook of the people who are regularly on Facebook and / or passively consuming a lot of information online, and the people who aren’t.
To put it another way, if you plotted the relationship between the number of hours a person spends on Facebook, or watching YouTube, or playing video-games, or consuming news and ‘entertainment’ and emotional difficulties and mental illness, you’d find a very strong correlation. See below:
The more you do these things, the more your primitive brain is strengthened, the more you think swearing at people is an acceptable form of communication, the more angry, judgmental, intolerant, paranoid and just plain ‘blinkered’, narcissistic and crazy you become.
(While we’re on the subject, that’s also why I think very carefully before I watch videos on Youtube, even videos that seem to be coming from a solid, good place. The simple act of watching a video is doing something ‘negative’ to the brain, even if the info is first class. That’s why I always prefer to read things, than watch things, and why I check myself VERY carefully for ridiculous paranoid tendencies after watching anything ‘Nibiru’ related.)
THE LUBAVITCHER REBBE’S WARNING
Chana, (who is a Chabadnik) continues:
“We live in the most bizarre time, that no generation has ever experienced before us. That is why the Rebbe said that our generation is the last generation of exile and the first generation of Mashiach. The technological progress on the one hand, and the surge of spirituality on the other, which is coming, will create something akin to a ‘Doppler effect’, depending on the observer’s position. If he’s facing towards the Source of all life, or facing away from it… (God forbid).
“Therefore, evil can be defined as consciousness not sufficiently oriented toward and focused on G‑d - or, worse, oriented away from or against G‑d.”
Here’s where I’m going to talk about Dave Dobbs. Dave Dobbs is a peculiarly English type of eccentric, which makes him very real, very affable, probably pretty clever - and completely batty, all at the same time.
If I hadn’t lived in England, this mix of traits would appear absurd. As it is, Dave Dobbs fits a certain type of British stereotype, of the crazy loner with funny ideas who happens to be surprisingly right quite a lot of the time.
Now, I’m not vouching for Dobbs. I have no idea where he’s really coming from, spiritually-speaking. He’s not a xtian (which is already a good start!) but I have strong suspicions he may be a leftover ‘mother nature / druid’ type, which you do tend to find a lot of in the UK still, particularly around places like Glastonbury.
So, I watched his video with a huge pinch of salt, trying to figure out if this guy is coming from a good spiritual place or not.
There’s a very short summation of his main points on the WSO channel (which I also take with a huge pinch of salt, for a lot of reasons), which you can see below here:
He’s correctly ‘predicted’ the dates (to within a week) when the Kochav Yaacov / Nibiru system will have close calls (‘action from a distance’) events with planet earth on the last 5 occasions, and each time his dates WERE tied to weird sightings, sometimes of TWO celestial objects, plus a bunch of very extreme weather events, tsunamis and earthquakes, as explained very clearly by Jim McCanney.
ACCORDING TO DAVE, THE NEXT AND LAST NIBIRU CYCLE STARTS TODAY, AUGUST 7TH, 2017
But Dave predicts that we’re going to see some particularly impressive things going on in the skies (and potentially in a whole bunch of other ways, too…) on the 23rd /24th September, 2017.
So, Dave has been correct to within 7 days for his last 5 ‘flyby’ predictions, which is where we get to another interesting ‘coincidence’: Rosh Hashana starts on September 21, 2017, which is when we’ll begin the new year of 5778.
Once I saw that date, I sat up a little more, because none of these guys are Jews, and the chances that their ‘big cosmic event’ prediction is coming out pretty much exactly on Rosh Hashana is pretty meaningful, at least to me.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE CRAZY UVB LEVELS IN THE WORLD
Again, all this sounds quite far-fetched and too out there, I know.
Unless…unless…unless… Moshiach really is coming soon.
There’s also the small fact that a lot of the natural phenomena you’d expect to see and experience when an unidentified celestial object starts discharging the solar capacity, and creating a huge amount of electro-magnetic activity in the solar system really are happening right now.
Again, I wrote a ton about this HERE:
but let’s go back to Chana, for her explanation of what’s going on:
“Brown dwarf stars [which is what many people believe the ‘Nibiru’ phenomenon is] emit most of their electromagnetic radiation in infrared or microwaves, so they are difficult to find with our current instruments. Energetic forms of electromagnetic waves, such as ultraviolet (UV) light and X-rays, Gamma Ray bursts are the brightest electromagnetic explosions known to occur in the universe. It is accompanied by intense radiation. A gamma ray burst striking on Earth would immediately increase the ultraviolet radiation. That called ionizing radiation.
“In the following clip, this guy is showing pile of cans, which were bleached by the UV. Bearing this in mind - the obvious physical effects of UV radiation - Hashem showed me today interesting case. My windows are looking at the children’s playground and when I looked in the morning I saw a red ball lying on the ground.
“When I was leaving today at 1:00 PM, my daughter and I both looked out of the window and we saw that the ball was blue. Apparently, my daughter also noticed the ball on the playground and that is why she commented that, how is it possible for the ball to change color, when it was a red ball in the morning?
[Red colored things attract more UV radiation, and so bleach out faster than a lot of other colors]
“If we check current UV radiation levels, the maximum should be 10-11 points - but on many days it’s already way above, registering at 12 or even 15 points.”
Again, we have to view all these things through the prism of emuna, which states that:
- God is doing everything - ein od Milvado!
- Everything that God does is good - even the annoying, icky and frankly sometimes really scary things in the world
- God is hiding a message in every single thing, every interaction, everything I come into contact with somehow, every person I meet, every thought I have in my head, about WHAT I MYSELF need to fix, work on, change, improve or simply even just to acknowledge.
And before we move on with the rest of the post, let’s just underline that last point again and again, because while for sure there’s a load of global-level big stuff going on, the only people we can only really impact and change and ‘do something about’ is….ourselves.
And after a few decades of praying about them and asking Hashem for help, maybe also our husbands and kids, in some ways.
But the main work we’re down here to do is to fix our own bad middot and lack of emuna.
(I know, what a bummer! It’s SO much easier to blame everything on a bunch of ‘evil elites’, or on the ‘evil erev rav’, and have done, but that won’t bring geula the sweet way, and it also won’t help us get a passing mark to enter the world to come.)
So with that in mind, let’s find out how all this stuff may be tachlis affecting us in our everyday lives, and our everyday relationships, and in our everyday struggle to be better people and stay connected to Hashem, and what we can actually do about it all.
Again, you can go and Google this for yourself (but be warned - it’s hard to find tznius articles, as there’s a ton of articles about dangerous sunburns with graphic pictures of people in bikinis…), but in the meantime, here’s Chana’s summation of the main physical health issues:
“It's very dangerous for the health, especially the eyes, because the waves are high-energy, and even at low intensities can damage fragile biological molecules. When radio waves pass through biological tissue, they create a small amount of heat. A microwave oven cooks meat this way. It has a power level of about 1,000 watts and delivers all its energy into the food you’re cooking.
“Blood normally carries excess heat away from internal organs, but the eyes, having fewer vessels than other organs, are more vulnerable to heat and as the result can be damaged more easily.
That’s why you should wear high protection dark glasses to protect your eyes. Also, people should only walk around in modest clothes, because it covers the body in the most efficient way. I feel really sorry for anyone who’s walking around barely dressed, and exposing their bodies to such intense UV rays.”
“These are the main physical symptoms a person can develop, if they are exposed to the sorts of high levels of electromagnetic radiation we’re talking about here:
- Heated body,
- feeling sick like having the flu,
- headaches that come and suddenly disappear,
- stinging sensations, like they’ve been bitten by a fly or mosquito,
- blurred vision,
- irresistible coughing,
- very serious diarrhea,
- heart attack
- kidney pain
- excessive burping
- excessive gas
- stomach pain
- stomach bubbling
- intestinal cramps
- pain in the legs
- pain in the ankles and heel muscles
- reduced strength in the hands
- Signs of aging in the body
WHAT DOES GOD WANT FROM US?
Nibiru or no Nibiru, Moshiach or no Moshiach (God forbid!), end of the world or business as usual, God is definitely expecting things from each and every one of us.
Again, God is ultimately behind everything, and doing everything for our ultimate benefit, so if we’ve got those two stages of emuna firmly internalized (which is a huge if! This is serious work all by itself…) then really the only thing left to figure out is what’s the message God is trying to give me, right now?
And that’s where hitbodedut comes in, because really the only way to figure out what your personal, tailored message actually is,
is to talk to God about it all.
Does your tznius need a bit of a boost? Do you need to seriously tone down or minimize the amount of time you’re spending online literally being ‘brainwashed’ into become more of an animal, or brain-dead zombie, or peace ‘n love hater with each additional minute? Do you need to work on overcoming your fear that there’s *potentially* all this crazy stuff going on in the world at the moment, and that it may continue for some time yet and even intensify?
Do you need to work on your emuna? Your belief in the true Tzaddikim, who have been shouting themselves hoarse warning us about the need to be more tznius, and to chuck out our i-Phones and to minimize our internet use, and to stop talking badly about our fellow Jews, for the best part of a decade already?
You know, all those people that the yeshivanews likes to call ‘fanatics’ and ‘extremists’? All those ‘cult leaders’ that are begging us to get real, and to start doing the real work of acknowledging and fixing our own bad middot, instead of pointing fingers at everyone else’s flaws, all the time?
Hitbodedut is the only way to really answer the question of ‘what does God expect from me right now?’
In the rest of the very thorough email Chana sent me, she sent me a bunch of links apparently showing where a number of governments have been building themselves huge underground cities to escape whatever devastation *may* be on the way.
Where can a Jew shelter? Where should a Jew go?
I think both Chana and I got shown the answer via our weirdly similar dream / hitbodedut vision thingies.
Our best and really ONLY shelter is behind the true tzadikim, behind the people who are continuing to uphold the Torah (and also the world…) in our generation, with a great deal of mesirut Nefesh, or self-sacrifice.
Part of the reason I intensely dislike getting so much of my info about ‘Nibiru’ stuff from non-Jewish sources, even apparently very sincere ones, is that only a frum Jew really understands that Jews are above nature. And more than that, that a Jew can CHANGE nature by changing themselves, and making teshuva, and working on their own character traits.
Honestly? I still have no real idea if the next few months are going to be very uneventful and quiet, or ‘end of days’ apocalypse scenarios. From what I can see at the moment, we’re hanging in the balance, and it could go either way.
So much of me can see all this ‘weird’ stuff going on - unprecedented stuff going on - and all my research on bio-electricity and health, and the electric nature of the universe is all seguing together to paint a picture of something very ‘big’ *apparently* happening all around us.
At the same time…I don’t really believe anything weird or unusual is really going on. Been there, done that, can’t waste another 12 years waiting for Moshiach to show up and solve my problems…
But what I’ve just realized is that it doesn’t really matter what’s actually going on with all the Moshiach and Nibiru stuff, because in terms of what I myself need to be doing right now, the answer is the same, regardless:
I need to be working on my bad character traits, and trying to overcome my sinat chinam and whatever ‘bad eye’ I still cast at a fellow Jew.
CHARITY CHANGES THE COURSE OF CELESTIAL ORBS
The last thing to say, the last quote to bring, comes from Rav Berland, who recently put out the following for Parshat Ve’Etchanan 5777 - and I really sat up and took notice of this, because remember Rav Dov Kook of Tiveria told us that whatever happens with the Rav is directly connected to the redemption of the Jewish people:
TZEDAKA CAN MOVE THE CELESTIAL ORBS
"The Rebbe says, a person who’s distributing money, who’s giving, who has a good eye for everyone, and he throws money around without making an accounting of it, and he doesn’t pay attention to anything else - he can change the whole natural order. He can shift the sun, he can move the sun, the moon, the stars - he can shift everything!
"So, tzedaka can move all the celestial orbs. There are 12 mazalot (signs of the zodiac), and 7 celestial bodies, and by way of tzedaka, by giving tzedaka to the Tzaddik…not every type of tzedaka shifts the celestial orbs, only the tzedaka that goes to the Tzaddik…
"All the suffering and difficulties that a person has, every type of trouble and pain, everything - a person does it to himself, by being jealous, and by hating others, and by having a stingy outlook. He doesn’t have a good eye.
"Ayin tova, a good eye. ‘If your enemy is hungry, feed him, and you will heap burning coals upon his head’. Give your biggest enemy something to drink, something to eat, laud him, talk about his good points. This is the only way that God will destroy all of the rashaim (evildoers), and only then will we merit to the complete geula (redemption), may it be speedily in our days."
I won’t belabor the point, but again, these sorts of links aren’t going to be found on the WSO channel, or by Dave Dobbs, whatever else they may be going on about.
You and I have a direct, profound impact on the world - on the stars! On the sun! - simply by trying to be the best Jews we can be, paying the tzedaka we’re meant to, and believing in God and His true Tzaddikim.
The timing of this statement from Rav Berland was uncanny.
So ultimately, your guess is as good as mine about what happens next. If Dave & co are right that the last Nibiru / Kochav Yaacov flyby is kicking off today, expect to see lots more weird pics, and lots more freak weather events, earthquakes and bizarre geomagnetic phenomena including weird emotional states and unusual physical reactions and illnesses, God forbid, leading us up to Rosh Hashana 5778, and finally ending around Chanuka time.
And if not…
Then we still have a lot of work to do anyway, to chuck out our i-Phones, up our charity, and overcome our ‘evil eye-d’ tendencies.
The US medical specialists are apparently flying in today, Monday, August 7, 2017, to see the Rav and hopefully figure out if they can save his leg, BH. Due to the Shuvu Banim websites being hacked, the fundraising appeal to raise $1 million to cover the Rav's medical costs still needs some help. If you'd like to donate to help the Rav, please go HERE.
