I want the Jews of America to know that they are not safer
than the ones living in Eretz Yisroel. They must realize that
Hashem is losing patience because the Geula is waiting to
arrive and cannot be delayed any longer. But we Jewish
people are causing the delay and therefore Hashem must
help us to realize our mistake in order to allow salvation
to come upon us.
First, the nonreligious Jews - those who are at war with
Hashem, Chas Veshalom - will not be able to win.
They will fall and disappear from all eternity.
But first they will realize, like the Egyptians as they drowned
in the sea, Who is Boss.
The Jews who have no knowledge of their Jewish heritage
cannot use it anymore as an excuse.
Because today everyone can get all the information he wants
on any subject in the world while sitting at his table.
So for a person never to search out his own origins is simply
an act of laziness, ignorance and a desire to ignore truth in
order to continue wallowing in the physical pleasures of this
world. So these people will suffer much, and if, at the end,
accept truth wholeheartedly, will be saved.
The next group of Jews are the ones who believe they can
live in two worlds.
Keeping Shabbos but not covering their heads, neither the
men or the women - or just the men and not the women -
or think they can eat kosher at home but outside eat
egetarian in any restaurant. These people make up rules
according to their desires. They feel they are traditional Jews
and still part of the modern world. These Jews have a very
hard time accepting the truth that they are like the ones who
revolt against Hashem, Chas Veshalom, because they have
the chutzpa to sit in the palace of the King and openly deny
His rules and regulations. Now we come to the religious -
the so-called ultraorthodox group of Jews.
These Jews hold the future in their hands - the ones that are
supposed to be the closest to Hashem.
But what is the truth? The truth is that the frum community is
reeking with the stench of Olam Hazeh, of worshipping the
gel Hazahav with all the negative things that come with it.
And these so-called frum Jews - who spend their days
shopping, making parties - of course, for tzedaka, but parties
nevertheless - taking vacations, buying outrageous wigs,
fur coats, jewelry, cars - these same Jews have brought into
frum life movies, videos, CD-roms, all the dirt of the non-frum
Therefore, we now find in our world of Kodesh - adultery,
theft, even a lack of belief in Hashem.
And these same people are influencing the rest.
Some are dressed modern enough to identify them: men in
smartly tailored suits, expensive hats, gold cuff links and maybe
a bit of a beard - women dressed in elaborate wigs, much
make-up, gaudy jewelry and striking clothes - many not
exactly up to standards of Tznius.
But there are the others that also enter into this category.
And those are the men who still dress in long black coats,
sport long payos and beards, wear streimels or sbuddoks on
Shabbos, and still live like their more modern-looking
counterparts. Their wives look very much like the more
modern ones - maybe a bit more toned down.
Now you have the yeshivishe world, who are living on the
work of their wives. Yes, their wives, who now go to a frum
college so they can support their husbands' learning - but
frum colleges are not kosher at all and they learn many
forbidden things. And then they are sent into the world to
earn money so their husbands can learn. Many work in offices,
even frum offices, where adultery is common practice,
where Tznius is forgotten almost completely.
And this money is supposed to support Torah.
And every bochur is looking for such a girl.
Oy vai, Am Yisroel! The most erlich of people are struggling
very hard in America, because to stay really frum is not easy -
because the Yetzer Hara is now wearing a yarmulka, payos
and a beard. Everything has a hechsher but almost nothing is
really kosher. Am Yisroel, American Jews, save yourselves.
The end is not far off.
The troubles in Eretz Yisroel do not mean that you are safe.
Hashem wants to save you. He loves you. He wants you back.
Throw out the gods of money, lust and honor.
Throw them out completely.
Come back to truth, complete truth.
Throw away your silly masks, your gaudy wigs, your baroque
clothes, and come back to being erliche Yidden.
The only thing that I will add is fighting - machlokes;
that will kill first. First machlokes will kill. And you have
witnessed many tragedies. They all have to do with
worshipping foreign gods and machlokes.
I bentch Am Yisroel in America that you should accept truth
before it is too late, before the great darkness descends upon
us all. Strengthen your mitzvos. Throw out all unnecessary
Come back to your Father in Heaven - truly - and save
yourselves and your families.
I bentch all with a Gemar Tov and a great yeshuah.
But strengthen your bitochon in Hashem, your belief in
Hashem, your love of Hashem, because in this great
darkness not a glimmer of light will appear; and only those
who have complete trust in Hashem will be able to survive.
You cannot suddenly get it.
You must develop such a trust, and only those who really try
to be Hashem's servants can make it.
