Our Cry Can Bring Redemption

19 Elul 5783

I can't believe we are only eleven days out from Rosh Hashanah 5784!  I thought we were at the end around 5762!!  And here we still are, so much worse off than any of us could have imagined back then!  Twenty-two years ago, no smart phones, no social media, no global pandemic with non-vaccine "vaccines," etc.  

I read a lot of headlines but fewer actual articles.  I just don't have the heart for it.  I saw one the other day about a hybrid pig/human embryo that had been created in a lab somewhere.  Then, as I'm scanning the news, it seems that every day now, there is yet another (or several) attacks on Jews, while our useless government stands by and does nothing.  And the country is being overrun by foreigners until it looks like we've lost Eretz Yisrael to the goyim.  America comments daily on their disgust with every move we make.  Then, I read where rich chutznik "Jews" have been sending all our top military brass to be indoctrinated in programs at Harvard and the like, that horrible Yair Golan being a case in point.

But now, the worst news of all.  In what should be zeman simchateinu - a time of pure joy - we must instead suffer the insult of an onslaught of Christian idolatry in our holy city.  Once again, Christians are going to be parading in the streets of Jerusalem, taking it over as if it belongs to them.  They are going to be here throughout the entire high holiday period "proclaiming Yeshu to be King over all the Earth."  Oh, and they will be doing this at their government-sanctioned Christian worship area at the Southern Steps to the Temple Mount!!

ICEJ Feast of Tabernacles 2023!

It all just makes you want to scream!  "Ad matai, Hashem?  Ad matai?!!"  And this is precisely what we need to be doing.  Screaming to Hashem and crying out for deliverance!  That's why it's not acceptable to put your head in the sand and not allow yourself to be aware of what is happening around you.  People feel that their peace of mind and mental health are at stake, but if you can hide within a bubble of your own making, when would you ever feel the need to cry out to Hashem?!  

And the Lord said, "I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry because of their slave drivers, for I know their pains. (Shemot 3.7)

When I am in distress, I call upon the Lord; yes, I cry out to my God; out of His temple He hears my voice, and my cry comes before Him in His ears. (Tehillim 18.7)

They cry out and the Lord hearkens, and He saves them from all their troubles. The Lord is near to the broken-hearted, and He saves those of crushed spirit. (Tehillim 34.18-19)

The Lord is near to all who call Him, to all who call Him with sincerity. He does the will of those who fear Him, and He hears their cry and saves them. (Tehillim 145.18-19)

And Hashem said to [the angel], "Pass through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and mark a sign on the foreheads of the men who sigh and moan for all the abominations that are done within it." (Yechezkel 9.4) [Commentary: The prophecy goes on to say that the sinners were about to be wiped out. This sign on the forehead of the righteous was to protect them from the fate of the sinners.]
Open your eyes and face the truth.  Let yourself feel the pain, and then scream to the high heavens! We can't take any more!!  But if not for our sakes, Hashem, then for Your Name's sake, PLEASE!!! redeem us now!!
Also of interest:  OMG! They Spat on my Church! 


  1. Read this tearfully.

  2. 100%!! Deborah

  3. In the closing stages of WW2 , the Germans diverted much needed resources needed for their failing war effort to carry out their number 1 mission, killing Jews R'L. Today with Xianity dwindling more and more, here in the UK it has mostly been replaced by atheism and Islam ( 25th Dec is no longer a religious holiday), these clowns are busying themselves with their number 1 mission, converting Jews R'L .

    1. Amazing analogy Eli B. When I see how they celebrate their "success" and become more and more brazen in their methods and admissions, I have to keep reminding myself that this is HKB"H's justice on the nations - giving them a sense of superiority and victory just before making them crash and burn. Be sure to catch Rabbi Richter's amazing shiur: OMG! They Spat on my Church! .

  4. Hashem migut have no choice but to wait until the next shemittah, 5790. It seems he has told us that we are not worthy by now sending it to us this motzie shemittah, 5783. Most Jews don’t care for Moshiach’s arrival, and we know that Moshiach B’itoh has to arrive in a motzei shemittah year (as the Gemara states). So, buckle up because the next 6 years will be torture for every righteous Jew that screams out “Ad Mosai” in their hearts.


    1. There are still approx 2 weeks left in 5783.

      The Leshem and Rabbi Alexander Hool said moshiach will be here in 5783. Personally, I am a believer!

      C S

    2. Miriam, Mashiach can come any day - especially TODAY - "if we are wiling to heed his voice," to listen to him and follow his instructions. Just last week, we read the famous pasuk from the Haftarah, "b'ita achisheinah" - in its time I will hasten it. Even when redemption comes "in its time"- at its pre-ordained last minute time - when it comes whether we deserve it or not, Hashem has already built in yet an earlier time. Two dates are already indicated for techiyat hameitim, which happens after Mashiach has arrived - 5786 and 5790. If we take the later date, that would possibly indicate the final b'ita date. But if it has also been promised that even when it comes b'ita, it will be achisheinah as well, then that would not lock us into another full shmittah cycle.

      And here is another thing. There is apparently a machloket for whether the yovel year counts as a separate year with the new shmittah cycle starting afterwards with the next year being year one. Do you know what that means? Every 50 years, an extra year is added. We may not even know where we actually are in the ongoing shmittah cycles since the yovel schedule ceased to be observed 2000 years ago.

      Rambam says we have to have emunah that Mashiach can come any day. We can look at events and signs and say this time might be most propitious (like the month of Nissan for example: "in Nissan you were redeemed and in Nissan you will be redeemed"). But never, ever stop believing that it can come ANY day. Only HKB"H knows where it stops. But, we can be sure that it will be earlier than what justice would have demanded because His mercy endures forever.

    3. Remember Miriam, the motzaei shvi'it prediction is for MBD, not MBY, who by necessity will predate Ben David's arrival. Maybe someone else can confirm or deny, but I seem to recall seeing somewhere that there would be five years of MBY before MBD would come. Anyone else hear that?

      I still maintain that both MBY and MBD are here and waiting to be revealed, possibly still unaware of who they are. Rabbi Kahane wrote extensively on MBY and the sources he brings confirms that MBY is the "inaugural Mashiach" - he comes first.

    4. Moshiach can come any day, except shabbat. Please read the Rambam 13 principles of faith. There are auspicious times, but that does not mean that Moshiach cannot come at an inauspicious time.
      And this year is not over yet.
      Also we don't have to be perfect for Moshiach to come. Moshiach will strengthen us in Torah. The Rambam writes this. And anyone can make instant tshuva, hakoneh et olamo beshaa echad. The geulasphere goes off on all different tangents, but the basics are what the Rambam writes, and remember from Moshe to Moshe, me'moshe lemoshe lo kam kmoshe.

      Those of us who do care about the geula should focus on Moshiach coming today berachamim, and davening for all of am yisrael to make tshuva. If something gives chizuk that Moshiach can come today, great, otherwise it's a distraction, and worse dampens the ratzon for Moshiach now.


    5. Since we have already passed into redemption in its time, of course we do not have to be perfect. Redemption comes whether we are ready for it or not. This has already been established.

      We have always held that Mashiach can come any day, but when we admit that it might not be today, but at some later date, I don't see that it is any different from what Rambam said: "I believe with complete faith in the coming of Moshiach, and although he may tarry, nevertheless, I wait every day for him to come.

      You could say "I believe with complete faith in the coming of Moshiach, and although he may tarry until Sukkot 5784 or until the next Pesach, or whatever, nevertheless, I wait every day for him to come." That is what we are saying when any of us discusses opportune times for Mashiach, keeping in mind that, in truth, they have already come - the Meshichim - they just haven't been revealed to us yet. So when we speak about Mashiach "coming", let's understand that what we are asking HKB"H for is that He settle the mantle of Mashiach upon him and reveal him through the performance of his mission in this world. If he is already here, then this event can truly happen literally at any moment of any day, starting with this one right now!!

      But, also understand, that these powers are holding this event back right now - Eisav, with the cooperation of Yishmael, and the Erev Rav. But, really it comes down to Eisav because Eisav is the one giving power to the Erev Rav as they serve Eisav and together they support Yishmael and don't allow us to fight back. That's why this image of Edom's destruction is going hand-in-hand with the vision of redemption. Only when their power is lost will Mashiach emerge into the light. And if you want to know how quickly such a thing can happen, just look back to 9/11/2001!!

  5. Amen! H' Bless you for reminding our people of what is really going on and we need to cry out just as the Jews in Mitzrayim did when their workload became even heavier and they couldn't bear it for it was too much for them. Our people are sometimes the last to realize what is going on. We are very close to the end and that is why everything is getting worse because until it gets so bad, that is what will wake all of us up.
    We must do teshuva with the greatest of sincerity and realize once
    and for all that we have no one to rely on but Hashem! For in the end, He will wage the ultimate war against the nations that 'know Him not'.
    I will send your excellent post out to others and, hopefully, they will
    send it out to their friends.
    We pray that this coming 5784 we will see the Geulah Shleimah,
    but with great Rachamim from Above for everyy Jewish neshama!

  6. Sorry, just sent out my comment, but forgot to write in my
    name: 'maivin'.

  7. These times are sooo difficult.!! We need to continue to hope and pray for Moshiach’s arrival …daily! Our emuna and bitachon .. gives us strength! Our personal and global challenges are huge.. but we must cling to HaShem now.. more than ever..We can do nothing without Hashem’s help! Our prayers must be loud and strong., and frequent.. We need to keep Hashem close to us and be in touch with Him throughout the day.. every day!!!
    HaShem knows us.. and hears our prayers!!
    May it be Hashem’s will to bring Moshiach ASAP!! Only HaShem knows the right time!!
    May HaShem be with us always!!

  8. Pay attention to where this is going. I still figure this as a key element in the final days of the ruling regime. When the Erev Rav fall, MBY will be revealed: American defense pact at forefront of Saudi talks, says senior Israeli official

    1. He would say: "Moshiach will not take over from them, something will happen in the interim." Chazon Ish

      He once said: "One clear day they will open the windows and they will see no more State." Chazon Ish

      Yisroel Tzion

  9. ADaM= Adam David Moshiach

    Chabad Rabbi Ginsberg


  10. For the nameless anonymous or anyone else who misunderstood my reference to five years of MBY. There's nothing to say that some of this time can't overlap with MBD. And there's nothing to say that the five years didn't already begin. It would not surprise me at all to find that it started in 5781! Five years later brings us to the first date given for techiyat hameitim.

  11. Translation from the page:
    Jews Wake Up and Hear the Sounds of Redemption at the Door from the mouth of the hidden tzaddik Rabbi Eliyahu Abutbul

    Who says that until Sukkot 5784 is the time of redemption
    Zohar HaChadash, Parashat Balak, daf 68, amud bet, in the Zohar Matok MiDevash, amud תקמו - תקמז, in a meeting with Rabbi Avraham Asulin, Iyyar 5783.

  12. https://youtu.be/3c-JJSPLLgM?si=LVJzP99sKLMB1n-r

  13. Keeping in mind that Rosh Hashanah is Judgment Day for the entire world, not just the Jews, will the NY/DC area see a powerful storm about that time? This Storm Is Gonna Be Huge…

    1. Greece is being flooded as we speak. Astonishing.


  14. Look at the amount of holidays that will fall on Friday/shabbat in the coming weeks = Malchut, kingship, completion. = David ha-melech, Moshiach.

    Also , 5784= תשפ"ד
    פ"ד---> פדיון , redemption



    1. Rabbi Richter told me yesterday that there is tremendous power in a Rosh Hashanah which falls out on Shabbat - both for good and not good. He has a sefer which says when HKB"H forgave us for the Golden Calf, when we entered Eretz Yisrael, and when the first Beit HaMikdash was dedicated, Rosh Hashanah was on Shabbat. On the other hand, he says, the years in which both Batei Mikdash were destroyed, Rosh Hashanah came out on Shabbat. We need to work towards bringing the best outcome from the power inherent in Rosh Hashanah 5784.

      I noticed that WW1 started in Av and WW2 started in Elul, perhaps the trend will continue and WW3 will start in Tishrei. Right now, I'm seeing a lot of Youtube rabbis and mekubalim announcing geulah at Sukkot, so...

    2. Who said there needs to be ww3 before geulah?! b) which rabbis announcing geulah at Sukkot?


    3. Rabbi Richter adds, if I'm recalling correctly, that whether it turns to good or not so good for us is determined by how we observe the Shabbat. That sounds to me like it is the power of Shabbat that is infusing Rosh Hashanah. If we have put in the right work and effort in keeping the mitzvot of Shabbat, it will go well for us and if not... The name of the sefer is Minchat Oni, Parashat Ha'azinu, by Rabbi Ya'aqov Etlinger.

    4. D, geulah is a process - a very long process. When we talk about geulah "coming," what we are really referring to is the end of that process - the culmination. According to many sources the atchalta de geulah - the beginning of the process - started already over a hundred years ago. Think about the story of Purim and how it played out over nine years and the the war that led to Hanukkah lasted 25 years. That's the nature of this physical world. It's how HKB"H made it. Did you really think there could be a geulah without the War of GoguMagog? Could we have left Egypt if HKB"H had not destroyed it?

      This Shabbat, 23 Elul, is the 22nd anniversary of 9/11 in America. The haftarah then was the same as it is this week:

      Who is this coming from Edom, with soiled garments, from Bozrah, this one [Who was] stately in His apparel, girded with the greatness of His strength? "I speak with righteousness, great to save." Why is Your clothing red, and your attire like [that of] one who trod in a wine press? "A wine press I trod alone, and from the peoples, none was with Me; and I trod them with My wrath, and I trampled them with My fury, and their life blood sprinkled on My garments, and all My clothing I soiled.

      For a day of vengeance was in My heart, and the year of My redemption has arrived. And I looked and there was no one helping, and I was astounded and there was no one supporting, and My arm saved for Me, and My fury - that supported Me. And I trod peoples with My wrath, and I intoxicated them with My fury, and I brought their power down to the earth."

      The kind acts of the Lord I will mention, the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord bestowed upon us, and much good to the house of Israel, which He bestowed upon them according to His mercies and according to His many kind acts. And He said, "They are but My people, children who will not deal falsely." And He became their Savior.

      Turkey and Greece are being flooded now by a storm called "Daniel" - DIN. And this is not yet the Judgment. All that you see happening around the world is not yet the Judgment - it is the warning required before punishment can be meted out. The warning carries a hint of what is coming when justice is rendered. There will be mercy for those who deserve mercy and none for those who do not.

      Regarding the various announcements of geulah at sukkot, see all the links provided in the above comments by various readers of this blog. My thanks to them all.

  15. There is only one link above from a YouTube rabbi/mekubal about Moshiach arriving this Sukkos. And the article quotes that same rabbi if I’m not mistaken. It’s all from the same calculation someone made from the Zohar.


    1. I'll get back to you on this, bl"n. No time at the moment.

    2. Thank you, Yonatan. I find two links above referring specifically to Sukkot 5784...
      Rabbi Mattityahu Glazerson
      Rabbi Eliyahu Abutbul
      A third one by Rabbi Ginsberg only repeats the ADaM reference.

      Here are two more.
      Rabbi Menashe Amon "Heaven has approved Geulah soon, no more delays."

      "Rabeinu Shalom"(?) Rosh Hashanah 5784

    3. Sorry. Here is the correct link for Rabbi Menashe Amon

    4. Has anyone here ever heard of Rabbi Eliyahu Abutbul and Rabbi Menashe Amon before these predictions? Do they have a record of being correct with their predictions? Because Rav Amon saying that Moshiach can now arrive and nothing is holding him back (Moshiach being imminent) and Rav Abutbul saying that Moshiach will come by this Sukkos are very strong statements. Also, has anyone read through the paragraphs of the Zohar from that link to reveal this Sukkos as being a Keitz for Moshiach’s arrival? We sure hope they come true immediately!

    5. You can ask to get the page of the Zohar he is reading from by Whatsapp , ask in Hebrew to rav Assoulin 972 55-275-2132


  16. From Israel Realtime Updates: Due to indications from Gaza that tomorrows border rioting is expected to be extremely violent and the assessments that there is a high probability of escalation in the High Holidays, DM Galant held a special comprehensive security assessment meeting with IDF and other security agencies.

    At the end of the meeting Galant released a statement in which he stated :”There will be those that will attempt to hurt us during the holidays , they will pay. I advise the terrorists not to test us”

    From Twitter (X):
