I’m cutting and pasting this from the Ravberland.com website.
BH, I managed to get to Hevron yesterday with my husband.
We got there on time, for 8pm, (which means we got there ‘early’ by Israeli standards).
10 minutes after we arrived, the Border Police put barriers all over the Hevron plaza, and stopped the other members of Shuvu Banim from actually getting to the Mearat HaMachpela.
By the time I left at 9pm, there was a scene developing that was eerily reminiscent of what was going down on the Belarus / Ukraine borders pre-Rosh Hashana.
In case you forgot, that was when there were around 1,000 Breslov chassidim squared off against a wall of heavily-armed Ukrainian soldiers.
It was the same scene yesterday, just instead of Ukrainians guards with who had grandparents who quite liked Hitler, it was Israeli soldiers.
BH, the Rav will finally be freed today.
I read in one of his recent shiurim that he said all the secrets get revealed on Chanuka.
I’m hoping and praying that some of the stuff I’ve been uncovering the last month will start to come out, and that we’ll all finally be ‘shocked enough’ to stop making excuses for the state of our communities, and our families, and the world generally, to move forward to geula the sweet way.
Hating ‘bad’ doesn’t make me a ‘hater of Israel’, God forbid.
I know it’s not popular to keep harping on the FACT that we all have tons of bad middot, believe me, I know.
But there is a venomous snake wrapped around a barrel of figs.
And we all need to gird our loins to remove that ‘snake’ in our own dalet amot – and from within our own neshamas.
THIS IS THE ARTICLE FROM THE RAVBERLAND.COM SITE, HERE:
After repeated attempts by the Israeli court system to put off the hearing of our Rebbe, Rabbi Eliezer Berland shlit”a, the critical hearing has been set for this Tuesday (Dec 1, 2020) at the Supreme Court.
To that end, prayer gatherings have been scheduled around Israel for his immediate release and speedy recovery.
The unprecedented persecution of Rav Berland, who at 84 is the oldest prisoner in the Israeli prison system, and who suffers no less than 26 different illnesses, has reached a point of a matter of life and death. As had been reported over the last several weeks, the Rav suffers from, among other illnesses, heart problems (he has a pacemaker), has only one kidney, and has gangrene in his leg.
After undergoing two difficult surgeries, he was immediately returned to prison without a chance to recover in the hospital.
Moreover, the Israeli authorities have attempted repeatedly to prevent the Rav from receiving the proper medical care, requiring a court petition for something as minor as having his hand checked after suffering severe pain (it was discovered afterward that he had a broken hand).
The Rav’s attorneys have stated that this kind of treatment is without precedent and unexplainable.
It was reported in the name of autistic Binyamin Golden, that this was part of a deliberate attempt to assassinate the Rav while in prison custody.
While the Rav has been sitting for 10 months in prison without charge, and without any evidence brought against him, the court system has repeatedly attempted to delay his hearing. This Tuesday, December 1, the crucial hearing will finally take place to decide if the Rav will be released.
Last week a prayer gathering was scheduled to be held at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, but in a shocking move, the police closed down the entire city of Hebron to prevent it.
Therefore, prayer gatherings have been scheduled at holy sites all over Israel for the Rav’s speedy release and recovery, Bezrat Hashem.
I’m so praying, we will all hear some good news soon.
