Mp3, Listen Now

6:30 I hear many helicopters overhead and I think they are flying wounded solders to the hospital here. I went down to the holy grave of the Rabbi Luria, the Arizal and I couldn’t stop crying for all the Jews that have been hurt. I worry now and I don’t know how to wipe my tears. Then I saw a funeral going on in the lower part of the cemetery. It isn’t a mystery to me how someone might have been killed recently.

I think I have learned to tune out most of the bombs that fall so if I fail to repeat the news on them, maybe it is because of the denials of war. My friends, are we all really praying hard enough like we know we are capable off?

My heart is broken my friends. I await Hashem’s answer in the hopes he mends it. I can’t take the pain of the innocent families and children.

2am. The pangs of war and silence crush my spirit. Maybe I have seen to much, maybe too little or maybe its just too hard to all understand this night. Aniety, when will life get back to normal again. Another Jew was just killed. Was he just 17?

I find just a bit of comfort when I reach into my bag of swish chocolate. Was this brought into this world only for the moments when a person just didn’t have what it took to carry on? What is the spiritual essense of chocoate that it should have such power? :):(

  1. Heard you on Geln Beck. Just want you to know that this Southern Catholich boy from the State of Alabama (USA) is praying for you and your family and the people of Israel.

    Baruch ata ha-Shem Elohakynu melech ha-olam ha-gomel lechayavim tovov shegemalani kol tov.

    Mi shegemalcha koll tov hu yigmalcha kol tov selah.

  2. I have two children, one age 14 (Kit) and one age 2 (Florence). Tell your children to be brave, that God will watch over and protect them. Hezbolla is certainly an enemy of God, and they will reap what they have sown.

    Shalom.

  4. I heard you on Glenn Beck this morning. I pray daily for Israel and for peace in Yerushalayim. I believe that what is going on in Israel is part of Elohim’s end time plan for the world.

    May YHWH bless you and all israel!

  5. Reb Moshe,

    Your comments are heart breaking. It must be wearing on you, the sounds, the sirens, the fear, the funeral you witnessed. I cannot fathom what your feeling, I can only try. I can try to connect to you (and every Jew who is there) through your words, each word is difficult to read, I can feel the pain in your heart. I am deeply pained and I wait for the day that Hashem wipes the tears of every Jew, the tears of our children there, and of the mothers who must carry the weight of her family the fathers who must protect them all. Are we praying enough? NO. I am not praying enough. The truth is, I am at work right now, in America, filling out forms on my computer, keeping up on the news as Arutz Sheva sends me updates. I drove to work today, about 45 minutes, pretty safe and secure. I had dinner with my family last night, we had lasagna. We slept safely in our beds. For the most part, my co-workers dont even know what is happening in Israel, does the world ever really know what the turmoil is all about, its not about the Land. I feel sick to my stomach, there is a deep sadness with me day after day. I’m saddened for your very real, emotional and difficult experiences you are facing. I am angry at the Israeli government for letting it go so far. I am angry that Israel has acted like a victim over and over again. I am angry that I am left to question G-d. I am also disappointed in myself that so often I am not being the best Jew that I can be. I fall short and I settle. I lose the fire, the spark , and I settle with that. Dont get me wrong, I get charged again, but is that what it takes, a “charge”? It’s that constant struggle…. to “maintain”, to have enough emunah, to love enough, to show enough compassion, to light that Jewish spark in a fellow Jew… to change a life and to effect the world around us. This is where I am holding, I am here, far from the turmoil, my daily worries consist of trying to pay my daughters orthodontist bill of $144. I am worried that I bought a sheitel that I can’t pay for…. My soul is not as connected as it should be. I am capable of so much more, I have a neshama, I can connect. What will it take for Hashem to act greatly on our behalf? Why does He allow what He allows? Am I stating that I could do it better, as if He is not perfect. We know He is perfect – I just pray we see our redemption soon.

  6. My heart is there with you, heartbroken and feeling so helpless. Rivka thank you so much for your words of reminder. Rabbi, your emunah in Hashem is such an inspiration for me and I know many of us here in the US. I really believe Rabbienu must be so proud of his chasid!

  8. I heard you on Glenn Beck, of course I perked up when I hear “Moshe” was a caller, and from Tzfat no less! I thought you made a good point and brought first hand to an audience. Please keep up the blog I will check it. Write what buildings are destroyed, families you know that have moved. I keep up with Arutz Sheva news, honestreporting, and newsmax. Thanks for standing up and being counted!
