This time it's Jewish/Hevron holiness: Selichot at Mearat Hamachpelah, possibly my favorite place on earth!



May you have "a gitten kvittel". May all Am Yisrael be blessed with only goodness and may our prayers be heard on Yom Kippur.

Regarding this incredibly inspiring and beautiful video of Slichot this past Sunday: don't be dismayed by the lack of sound starting around 6:00; it returns at around 12:00. Enjoy, experience the atmosphere of holy Hevron where all Jews find their place: it is after all the home of our Mothers and Fathers!

Gemar Chatimah Tovah to all! May all of Am Yisrael be inscribed in the Book of Life.

And here is a small Encore for thirsty souls:

This is awesome, I couldn't resist. Ken Yirbu! Halevai that all Jews had the understanding of this special Muslim!

I love it; my goodness, such beautiful and holy souls in the world outside of Israel! It gives me hope, and I can't stop singing in unison with Mohammed - singing a  holy and beautiful Jewish song together with this openhearted and wise Muslim. 

Beautiful Rosh Hashanah understanding, Mohammed! Thank you; I have no doubt G-d loves you.


.... Yemot Ha Mashiach, Mamash!


Wishing all of you a beautiful and Happy New Year. 


Leshanah Tovah Tikatevu ve Tichatemu!

Very urgent appeal, PART II: only a few hours left, and still over $7,000 missing!

BS"D

Dear friends, family, etc:

Regarding the Chesed Fund campaign about David Barel in a Polish prison for a crime he didn't commit:

After a lot of deliberations with a friend, we came to the conclusion that the story is REAL. Why do I say that? Several intelligent people have questioned the veracity of the claim, suspecting that some con man or woman is trying to squeeze a lot of money out of us softhearted and compassionate Jews... because we know: what is more precious than saving another Jew?

Well, thanks to my friend's tenacity, intelligence and skills, she figured out who the man really is and what happened. I won't spill the beans because she did the work, so let her tell it like she figured it out; additionally the family didn't want to be identified, and I don't want to cause them any more sorrow at this time. But please take my word that we have done our due diligence and we both believe that we know who and why.

So with that in mind, I am asking you, once more: let's free the man! Let's make sure the missing money is in the account by tonight POLAND TIME! The man is in Poland, and Poland is one hour behind Israel, so now it is around 4:00 PM there.

Let's contribute whatever we can , let's spread the word to all our friends, rich and poor, let every Jew pitch in in saving this man so he can be home for Rosh Hashanah!

And let everybody have a wonderful New Year full of brachot.

As a reminder, here is a link to the campaign:

Thank you in advance,

PS: We did it! The goal has been reached. Whoever contributed, thank you!

Mi Keamcha Yisrael, beautiful.

Very urgent appeal for the freedom of a Jew imprisoned in a Polish jail for a crime he didn't commit...three days left, please read below, forward and help too! Thank you.





Sounds familiar? Apparently that is what the Paritzes would do in the past. I guess the leopard does not ever change its spots. Really nice, honorable behavior from that court.

After B"H we finally help free him, I hope we will publicize the story so the whole world can appreciate the disgusting blackmail that occurred here.  Hello Poles, some great people you are, aren't you?!

Goal: $170,000
UPDATE, 15/9/2019: Thank you so much for all your help so far. Unfortunately we are still far from our goal. We have so little time left to save Dovid, there are only 4 days left to return a father to his children. Please help us bring Dovid home, it is a matter of life and death.
UPDATE, 9/9/2019: Thank you so much to the kind donors who have helped us thus far. Unfortunately we have not yet raised the money necessary to release Dovid. BARUCH HASHEM we were able to receive an extension so we now have another 10 days to save his life. Please help us to reach our goal, every minute counts. Thank you.

Hello,
My name is Sara Barel. We are in a very very painful situation and we desperately need help -
My husband Dovid’s identity was stolen, and was used by someone for fraud - He was arrested and taken to prison in Europe. We were so scared but assumed it would all soon be over, because he is innocent.
For two years he has sat in Polish prison, suffering without trial. You cannot imagine what he has been through in that time. Finally, this week, his case was brought to trial. It was determined that he is innocent and that he can go home - if, by Sunday, September 8, we can pay a fine far beyond what we could ever dream of affording.
If we do not pay the fine, he will chas v'shalom remain in prison. Honestly I fear for his life. The prison is not a good place, and he is suffering. To bring him home is now not only redeeming a captive, but a matter of life and death.
I have spent two years home alone with my eight children, unable to tell them when, or if, their father would ever come home.
Baruch Hashem Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita has written a letter on our behalf, calling on people around the world to save this precious life.
Please, please join us and help our family raise this money. And you should be blessed with health, happiness, and parnassah for your own family, to never have to beg for the help of others.
Thank you. Sara
Our haskamah of Rabbi Yaakov Eliezer Schwartzman shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Lakewood-Jerusalem (First translation, then Hebrew below) :
"To Acheinu Bnei Yisrael:
I have come to request and to awaken Acheinu Beis Yisrael in the matter of my friend Rav Refael shlita whose brother is facing guilty charges, he is accused by the government of Poland and they have imprisoned him in a terrible situation. They are demanding a huge sum, without it he will remain in prison for a long time, which will seriously endanger his health.
It is the cry of the Gedolei Yisrael shlita, that every Jew of Acheinu Beis Yisrael, wherever he may be, must do whatever is within his power to free the prisoner from his imprisonment. To do whatever he can to gain his freedom, especially with generous donations to this holy cause of Pidyon Shvuyim.
All those who participate and contribute should be blessed with everything good, and a Ksiva v’Chasima Tova.
Signed on 5 Elul in Lakewood – Jerusalem may it rebuilt speedily in our days,
Yaakov Eliezer Schwatzman"

Coming out of hiding, just this one time for the elections. May Hashem help us all! Please pass on this video - or even the whole post if you wish. Thank you.

Hi everyone,

I am coming out of hiding, just this time, and from Chutz La'Aretz, because these upcoming  elections are really important - as Rav Berland said, it's a matter of Pikuach Nefesh. Yes, literally, it is a matter of life or death for most of us in Israel, and by extension, in the whole world. Together with so many other things happening, I could write pages and pages of info about the various dangers we are facing now and in the near future, but the time has not come yet.

As for the elections only two days away, this is the best and only thing I can do from afar - I wish I could do more, and of course Tefillah always helps - but... so here is what I received from Nadia Matar and Yudit Katzover from the Women in Green:a really good and short video, to the point, and stressing crucial things we tend to forget. Please forward it, as these wonderful ladies requested.



Hoping for the best possible outcome for Am Yisrael: WE NEED MASHIACH NOW!

Kol Tuv, and a Shana Tovah Umetukah to all if this is my last post until Rosh Hashanah.

Ketivah Vechatimah Tovah, and may Hashem help us all.
