"At the kever of the Baal Shem Tov, they met with Moshiach. They were told to prepare for the Geulah, and specific failings in their communities to rectify. Moshiach gave each attendee a blessing, and nisim (miracles) were literally seen _on the spot_.
Moshiach indicated he was going to the simple souls who needed to be gathered up in the time remaining. He was not going to the mainstream religious communities, as they were not open to him. He would not be heard from again until ..."

MOSHIACH IS WATCHING US . . .
"...the Tzaddik agreed to speak ... and revealed a few things:
* All Jews in the Diaspora should begin preparing returning to Eretz Israel - the latest possible date to return to Israel is Rosh Chodesh Sivan, 5769. Those that will not return by that date, will "miss the boat."
* Every Jew should make an effort to purchase land in Eretz Israel, even the smallest piece of land.
* Men should set times to learn Torah because only the quantity of hours that a person learns Torah is accounted for in Shamayim. If a person learns 45 minutes of Torah a day, by the end of the week, Shamayim considered his living time only 2 and half hours. In other words, Shamayim (Heaven), counts only the 'living time' when a person learns Torah. The rest of the time when a person is without Torah is called in Shamayim "non-living".
*Women do not have the obligation of learning Torah. A woman's main obligations are the three Mitzvot of CHaNA: Laws of separating Challa; Family Purity; and lighting Shabbat and Holiday candles. Besides all the rewards women receives for preparing for Shabbat, the shopping, cleaning, cooking, washing dishes, feeding the family, etc. women receive full credit of the 25 hours of Shabbat as if she's learning Torah.

AMAZING THINGS OCCURRING IN THE ERA PRECEDING MOSHIACH's ARRIVAL
The Israeli secular community does not really know what to make of the new trend, but Baruch Hashem, many kibbutzim and other secular communities around Israel are requesting a shul and mikve, the very same communities that have lived for decades without the holy structures.
This year, dozens of shuls and mikvas have been constructed in secular communities and it appears the trend is gaining momentum. 50% of requests given to the Ministry of Religious Services have come from secular kibbutzim and moshavim. Permits were given to construct 37 new mikvas, and in some cases, in totally secular areas including Kinneret Rotem, Kfar Vardim, Tzur Yitzchak, Tal El and N’vei Ziv. The ministry permitted the construction of shuls in 79 communities, 80% in totally secular communities including Kibbutz Ashdod Yaakov Ichud, Gan Ner, Kibbutz Gezer, Kfar HaNaggid, and Karmei Yosef.
“Undoubtedly, there is a new trend in Israel. A growing number of Israelis are more open and more in need of religious services. This is a record-breaking number of requests from the staunch secular community.”
The leaders of the national kibbutz movement confirm the number in the report, adding the overwhelming number of kibbutz residents are indeed secular. They add today, there is more pluralism today and less homogeny. They confirm there appears to be a growing interest in returning to “traditionalism” and prayer.
AND HELPING THEM TO SORT THINGS OUT IS
"Rosh Yehudi was established by a group of educators who have accumulated practical experience in a variety of fields, in response to the acute thirst that has evidently arisen among that sector of the Israeli public that calls itself "secular", to study Judaism..."
"This thirst has amplified over the years..."
