“You drew close before Hashem” (Vayikra 16:1)
Excerpt of a shiur given over via the phone on April 16 from the Tzalmon Prison, by Rabbi Eliezer Berland, shlita. You can hear the Rav giving this over in the original Hebrew HERE.
(note: we transcribed and translated to the best of our ability, mistakes may appear)
Moshe and Aharon also wanted to be burnt (like Nadav and Avihu), but this was forbidden. Because a person needs to live. Moshe and Aharon always knew how to stop [their dveikut with Hashem] at the very last moment (before their souls left them). And so, in the name ‘Nachman’ there are two nuns (the Hebrew letter ‘n’).
One nun is above, in order to know exactly when to stop the dveikut. In the name ‘Natan’, there are also two nuns, to know when to stop the dveikut.
Nadav and Avihu continued the dveikut, they continued until they were burnt. And they were sure that Moshe and Aharon were the same, that they would continue until they would also be burnt.
So, who is going to lead the generation now? Who is going to lead the generation?
If they had lived, there wouldn’t have been meraglim (the spies who slandered the land of Israel); the Beit HaMikdash wouldn’t have been destroyed. Just three months after [they died] there were the meraglim.
This [their death] was on the first of Nissan. On the 9th of Av, there was already the sin of the spies.
The whole inyan is to nullify the sin of the spies, and to ascend to Eretz Yisrael.
They [the spies] said, what are you talking about, to make aliyah to Eretz Yisrael! What are you saying?! We are going to wait for the Moshiach. For they didn’t know that by way of their coming to the aretz (land of Israel), they would bring the Moshiach.
If everyone would come to the aretz, then today Moshiach would immediately come!
The whole inyan is that today, Moshiach will come. At this moment, Moshiach will come, in this second, Moshiach will come. On Seder Night, it’s possible to bring the Moshiach.
If everyone would have made aliya to Eretz Yisrael, then immediately the Moshiach would have come.
Everyone needs to make aliyah to Eretz Yisrael, we need to return everyone to here, great and small, as one. Rabbanim, Admorim and Chassidim – everyone needs to ascend to Eretz Yisrael.
In the future, when Heftziba will go up Har Nevo, and go up on the summit, and will blow teruah, tekiah for 10 hours, without stopping, until everyone brings back their belongings. It’s required to bring back the things, to close the businesses.
70,000 ships will come, each ship with 1,000 people, and then the whole world will come, 100 million will come. They will all come to stop the Jews. The Jews are coming to conquer Eretz Yisrael! The Jews are coming to Eretz Yisrael to take Jerusalem. It will be the head [city] of all the goyim.
Moshiach ben Yosef will come.
He will be revealed in Eretz HaGalil (the Galilee), and then he will go to the graves of Avraham, Yitzhak and Yaakov. And then they will have four shofars. Moshiach ben Yosef will have one shofar, and then another three shofars for each of the Patriarchs, Avraham, Yitzhak and Yaakov.
They will blow teruah, tekiah, teruah and then they will go to the Kever of Rachel Imenu, and they will awaken her, and a fifth shofar will fall from shemayim and all of them will then arrive to the Sea of Yaffo, to the port. And there will be there 100 million ships, and on each ship 1,000 men.
And then, the whole world will come.
All the Jews will come to inherit the land, and on each ship of the goyim that arrives [to Israel] there will be a 1,000 rockets.
And they will come to take everyone as slaves and ‘maidservants’. And then the sea will split, and it will open into two, like the kiryat yam suf (the splitting of the Sea of Reeds).
And then everyone will say: “By the life of Hashem, who took the Children of Israel up from the land of Egypt.” (Yirmiyahu 23:7).
Now is the moment of the revelation.
Moshe says to everyone to make aliya to Eretz Yisrael. Now, everyone gathers together their belongings and makes aliya to Eretz Yisrael. They will go up to Meron on L’ag B’omer, and that is when the geula will be, on L’ag B’omer exactly when Hitler committed suicide.
Because L’ag B’omer is the day that Hashem will cut off the nations of the world. Armilus the Rasha will come with 100 million goyim and crystal stones surrounded by fire will fall on the 100 million goyim.
Devorah was surrounded by fire, therefore we remember Sisera in the story of Yael. Yael is the Kohen Gadol. Dafka, a woman will be the Kohen Gadol, because a woman is more than a man, because the men in the sin of the Golden Calf brought everything. The nose rings, the strings of beads, the necklaces.
The women brought mirrors for the mishkan. Moshe didn’t want to accept them. Hashem said to him, this is the most important! This is more important than anything! This is how they established the Torah.
The gezeira (decree) of ‘every boy baby, you should throw into the river’ (Shemot 1:22) lasted a year. They needed to throw every boy into the river. All of Egypt was filled with streams of tears. All the angels with four wings took the boys, and brought them to the other side.
All the stones were filled with honey and milk for the children.
