Rabbi Berland’s Message On The Upcoming Elections
Over recent months, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, shlita, has returned to the subject of the elections, and the dangers posed particularly by the Blue and White party of Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid, on a number of occasions.
Yesterday, September 9, 2019, Rabbi Berland, shlita, returned to the subject again and explained that: “The elections are mamash pikuach nefesh (a requirement to save lives).” What follows is a translation of his holy words:
“In terms of the elections, we need to know what the Admor of Vizhnitz said. Whoever hears this will tear his clothes (in mourning). He said that this is pikuach nefesh. Now, Benny Gantz [of the Blue and White party] is up to 30 mandates.
“Benny Gantz, together with Lapid, they want to uproot all of the chareidim.
“They want to throw all the chareidim on to some island in the Caribbean, so that they’ll build new houses there. So that Yosef Shor (one of the most well-known mohels in the Shuvu Banim community) will start to build houses, instead of being a mohel.
“Also on the [Grand] Bahamas Island, all the buildings were destroyed. They are blaming Shuvu Banim for all of this. Now, there are planes here, ready to bring the whole of Shuvu Banim to the Bahamas.
“Everyone is obligated to build a house of 10 rooms, this will be from plastic. The plastic will come from Germany, or from Chile, or from Peru. In the Bahamas, three quarters of the buildings were destroyed. A lot of homes were also destroyed in the Caribbean.”
While it is totally beyond us to even begin to guess at what the Tzaddik is really saying, or intending by these words, we know from past experience that every word that leaves his holy mouth is achieving some powerful, if hidden, end in the world.
A few months ago, no-one understood what Rabbi Berland was saying when he repeatedly spoke about Colombo, in Sri Lanka – until the awful bombings occurred there around Easter time, and the truth came out.
Similarly, we know that Rabbi Berland had a big part to play in Hurricane Dorian getting stuck in the Bahamas and then bypassing the State of Florida.
The Rav is constantly sweetening harsh judgments in the world.
And as to what his holy words really mean, we will have to wait and see as events unfold.
