"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 ..."

    "...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.

  • Arutz Sheva has even quoted The Yeshiva World:


    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.

    "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..."

    "If there are no bees,
    there is no way for our nation's farmers
    to continue to grow the high quality,
    nutritious foods our country relies on" …
    "This is a crisis we cannot afford to ignore."

    Democratic Rep. Dennis Cardoza of California,
    Chairman, Horticulture and Organic Agriculture Panel.

    Haagen-Dazs has developed a new limited-time flavor,
    Vanilla Honey Bee, to help fund research on the disorder.

    Burt's Bees has introduced Colony Collapse Disorder Lip Balm
    to "soften your lips while saving honeybees."

    WASHINGTON - Food prices could rise even more unless the mysterious decline in honey bees is solved, farmers and businessmen told lawmakers Thursday.

    "No bees, no crops," North Carolina grower Robert D. Edwards told a House Agriculture subcommittee. Edwards said he had to cut his cucumber acreage in half because of the lack of bees available to rent.

    About three-quarters of flowering plants rely on birds, bees and other pollinators to help them reproduce. Bee pollination is responsible for $15 billion annually in crop value.

    In 2006, beekeepers began reporting losing 30 percent to 90 percent of their hives. This phenomenon has become known as Colony Collapse Disorder. Scientists do not know how many bees have died; beekeepers have lost 36 percent of their managed colonies this year. It was 31 percent for 2007, said Edward B. Knipling, administrator of the Agriculture Department's Agricultural Research Service.

    "If there are no bees, there is no way for our nation's farmers to continue to grow the high quality, nutritious foods our country relies on," said Democratic Rep. Dennis Cardoza of California, chairman of the horticulture and organic agriculture panel. "This is a crisis we cannot afford to ignore."

    Food prices have gone up 83 percent in three years, according to the World Bank.

    Edward R. Flanagan, who raises blueberries in Milbridge, Maine, said he could be forced to increase prices tenfold or go out of business without the beekeeping industry. "Every one of those berries owes its existence to the crazy, neurotic dancing of a honey bee from flower to flower," he said.

    The cause behind the disorder remains unknown. Possible explanations include pesticides; a new parasite or pathogen; and the combination of immune-suppressing stresses such as poor nutrition, limited or contaminated water supplies and the need to move bees long distances for pollination.

    Ice cream maker Haagen-Dazs and natural personal care products company Burt's Bees have pledged money for research and begun efforts to help save the bees.

    The problem affects about 40 percent of Haagen-Dazs' 73 flavors, including banana split and chocolate peanut butter, because ingredients such as almonds, cherries and strawberries rely on honey bees for pollination.

    Katty Pien, brand director for Haagen-Dazs, said those ingredients could become too scarce or expensive if bees keep dying. It could force the company to discontinue some of its most popular flavors, Pien said.

    Haagen-Dazs has developed a new limited-time flavor, vanilla honey bee, and will use some of the proceeds for research on the disorder. Burt's Bees has introduced Colony Collapse Disorder Lip Balm to "soften your lips while saving honeybees."

    The House Appropriations Committee approved $780,000 on Thursday for research on the disorder and $10 million for bee research. The money awaits approval by the full House and Senate.
