I woke up today feeling pretty sad.

I guess it’s finally sinking in that millions of my fellow Jews, my fellow human beings, have been totally sold down the river with this whole, evil Covid scam.

So many of my kids’ friends have had this Pfizer ‘vaccine’ that really isn’t.

So much of my family, both in Israel and abroad.

Some of my extended family members even lied and said they were social workers, so they could jump the queue to get ‘vaccinated’ in the UK.

All this is making me very sad.


If I forget that God is really running the world, and that He can choose to turn all this around for the best, then the sadness is overwhelming.

All those people who say ‘we followed daat Torah in temimut, nothing bad can happen to us’ – do you know how many people followed daat Torah (“quote marks”) who told them it was OK to stay in Europe, to stay in Hungary, during World War II?


I was talking to my husband about this today, and he told me a couple of things that really helped me cheer up, at least enough to get on with making Shabbat.

  1. He told me that now we are back in Eretz Yisrael, the hashgacha pratit, the Divine oversight of what’s going on is totally miraculous. God could have wiped the whole of Israel out 60 times over, already. We’ve had so many wars with miraculous outcomes, already.

Every second here is a miracle, already, Pfizer shot or not Pfizer shot, and if God wanted us all dead, He could have arranged that a long time ago.


2. The second thing he told me is that today, we also have the Rav, Rav Berland.

The Rav has been busy sweetening things behind the scenes the last couple of decades, already.

So many things have already not gone to ‘plan’ for the forces of evil, there is good reason to feel more optimistic about the future in Israel, than I currently do.


I’m still really sad.

I still just feel like crying my eyes out about what’s gone on here.

But, I have to make the effort, spiritually, to remember that God is all there is, and that everything CAN be turned around for the good in a second.

God is only good.


And God is all there is.

BH, He’ll come and rescue us from all this evil and madness soon.

    Dear Rivka,

    Maybe now you understand how I was feeling the other day. Believe me, I am not happy at all that you feel that same deep sorrow, I wish we didn’t have to go through all this. I don’t want to fight with my family over this anymore: I tried my best, I have my understanding, they have theirs, and as you say, there is only G-d, and He rules the world, in whichever way He chooses.

    But look how amazing: what is the Haftorah for this coming Shabbat Hagadol? From Malachi; here are the last verses:
    כג הִנֵּה אָנֹכִי שֹׁלֵחַ לָכֶם, אֵת אֵלִיָּה הַנָּבִיא–לִפְנֵי, בּוֹא יוֹם יְהוָה, הַגָּדוֹל, וְהַנּוֹרָא.
    כד וְהֵשִׁיב לֵב-אָבוֹת עַל-בָּנִים, וְלֵב בָּנִים עַל-אֲבוֹתָם–פֶּן-אָבוֹא, וְהִכֵּיתִי אֶת-הָאָרֶץ חֵרֶם.

    I have a feeling that this is it! The great Day of Hashem, where every one of us has to reap the fruit of our deeds: it’s all in Hashem’s Hand: whoever does good with be rewarded: families will be reunited. Vaccine, no vaccine, does it even matter? I don’t know anymore. Hashem will decide who lives and who dies.
    And last night, for the first time in years, I dreamt of both my father and my mother. Is this a sign, or not? Am I right? Is this IT?

    Shavua Tov to all, and have a HAPPY Pessach.

    Indeed, Rabbi Berland said that there won’t be any big percentage of people that will die just before Mashiach comes, or at least not amongst the Jews. He said the calamities will only be in around another 200 years from now, but now only the good stuff will happen.

    It could very well be that according to the laws of nature getting vaccinated should really cause more and more deaths like Dr. Bossche was explaining in that article that Daisy sent, but I’m assuming the redemption will happen before the vaccinations cause a crazy amount of deaths, and then during the redemption miracles will happen, and all the bad stuff will stop in a supernatural way.

    The comments aren’t showing up, Rivka…only the original one is here.

    BTW, R’ Tzvi Fishman (producer/director of the video cited/linked to above) is one of my many neighbors (not next door, but sort of close by!).
