THE MILKMAN’S STARK WARNING TO THE PUBLIC
The famous kabbalist Rav Chaim Cohen Prachia, also known as ‘The Milkman’, has again issued a stark warning to the public to stop speaking against Rav Eliezer Berland, shlita, via his close student, the kabbalist Rabbi Yehuda Sheinfeld.
The following eye-witness account was recently recorded on the Breslov Information Line.

“I was attending the shiur (Torah class) of the holy kabbalist from Hadera, Rav Yehuda Sheinfeld, shlita, when a couple of very confused people showed up,” begins the eye-witness. “They started arguing and trying to say a bunch of ‘clever’ things that they’d read in connection to the ongoing persecution of Rav Berland, shlita. So then, Rav Sheinfeld, shlita, told them a shocking story.
THE SHOCKING STORY OF THE WOMAN WITH BRAIN CANCER
“[Rav Sheinfeld] told them: ‘Yesterday, I went to the home of the holy Milkman, the tsaddik and kabbalist Rav Chaim Cohen, shlita, together with a very big talmid chacham (Torah scholar), whose wife has developed brain cancer. He begged me to take him to the Milkman’s home, and even though I didn’t really want to take him there, I saw that he was in a very serious situation.”
The eye-witness continued: “Rav Sheinfeld then described what occurred at that fateful visit: ‘This talmid chacham told the Milkman that his wife had been stricken with cancer of the brain, and that they’d been told that she needed to travel to the United States for treatment. The man said to the Milkman: ‘There is no cure for her illness here in Eretz Yisrael, so what should I do, revered Rabbi?’
“The Milkman responded: ‘Tell me something. Did you talk badly about Rav Lazer [i.e. Rav Eliezer Berland], shlita? Did you write something bad against him? Or do something to try to hurt him?’
‘This talmid chacham started trembling violently when he heard the holy Milkman’s questions, until finally he blurted out: ‘How is this connected to Rav Berland? Why are you mixing Rav Berland into my wife’s condition?’ But the Milkman wouldn’t be put off, and he firmly asked him again:
‘Did you, or did you not, say something [against Rav Berland]? Did you, or did you not, make statements [against Rav Berland]?’
“Finally, the talmid chacham replied: ‘I spoke against him, and I made statements against him.’
“The Milkman replied: ‘In that case, there is no cure for your wife’s illness.’
‘And, I also don’t know if there is any way that you can rectify what you’ve done. Maybe, if you now go and turn the whole world upside down, and go and write and distribute things, and go and tell everyone to change their ideas about Rav Lazer, then maybe, maybe, there’ll be a miracle. But we don’t talk [negatively] about Rav Lazer! Do you hear?’ concluded the Milkman.’”
The eye-witness continueD: “The Tzaddik and kabbalist, Rav Sheinfeld from Hadera then turned to the people who’d been arguing, and asked them: ‘Did you ever learn, even once in your lives, some Chofetz Chaim? Did you ever learn the sixth rule of the Chofetz Chaim? Do you even know what you are talking about, or who you are speaking against?!
‘You sold your portion in the world-to-come for some lentil stew, and you followed a bunch of fools who have nothing to give you, and who think nothing of disgracing Torah scholars and Tzaddikim all day long, and you’ve been reading their insults and lies!!’
The eyewitness continued: “Even though the kabbalist Rav Yehuda Sheinfeld, shlita, is so wearied of having to deal with these slanderous persecutors, he still pressed me very strongly that I should go and publicize his words, so that these people won’t continue to harm their wives and children, even if they are past having any mercy upon themselves.
“These words come on top of the statement that was recently made by the kabbalist Rabbi Elazar Mordechai Menser, shlita, who told us that no punishment is given [from Heaven] unless a warning is first given. [Then, Rav Menser] wrote: ‘I received a message from Heaven that until now, they have been withholding the punishments because no warning had been given. But now, I have been sent to give the warning!’
“Sadly, his words are now being borne out, and this is not the first case that we’ve heard of. Protect yourselves!”
