Just a quick one, with what I’ve been told the Rav said about the upcoming War in Ukraine.
- The Rav said that Russia’s invasion was delayed to Sunday-Monday
- He also said that people staying in Uman can stay, those that want to come back should book their flight by Sunday-Monday
I just got sent a third message (as of Feb 16, 2022):
The Rav now said it might turn into a world war, but this generation is protected from another Holocaust. The Tzaddik is protecting the generation.
I am not following the fake news at all, btw, so I have no idea what everyone is being told is happening, just passing on the stuff from the Rav’s hotline.
The last few days, the Rav has been singing a lot of Uman songs at the prayers with him at 8.30pm every night, outside in Ido HaNavi.
When I went with my husband two days ago, we both had the impression something was being sweetened over there in the Ukraine, so whatever we are all reading in the fake news, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if whatever the ‘war’ turns out to be, it’ll be much less of a big deal than they are making out.
Our leaders would just lurve to have a massive war in the Ukraine right now, to take everyone’s mind off the Covid-19 genocide and tyranny that is starting to implode on every front.
While I’m mentioning the Rav, two more things:
- B’ezrat Hashem next week Monday Feb 21 (20 Adar aleph) at 7pm there will be an English Shiur from the Rav at his house for those who want to join the English Kollel of Shuvu Banim.
If you want more details about that, get on the Shuvu Banim WhatsApp group, by clicking HERE.
And lastly, the Rav’s community is totally cracking under the strain of having to pay millions of shekels in fines from the corrupt State of Israel, who have also banned the Rav from receiving any money directly.
They have asked that each person contribute 1,000 shekels (and more if they can manage it) to help pay off the huge debts, and to ensure the institutions still have the money they need to continue operating.
If you read THIS, you’ll see that when you give money to Shuvu Banim, with the intention of it being a ‘pidyon nefesh’ with the Rav, it counts as such.
I have to tell you, the last two years, I have been doing pidyonot all the time still, just donating the money via the website HERE – and it’s been working a treat, in a whole bunch of ways.
If it didn’t work, consistently, I wouldn’t be doing it all the time.
It’s as simple as that.
So, if I hear anything more about the ‘war in Ukraine’ I will tell you.
At the moment, my gut feeling is that it’s shaping up to be a ‘nothing burger’, because the Rav is constantly sweetening things behind the scenes.
But of course, that’s just my uninformed opinion, and I could well be totally wrong.
