Reb Neuberger – Yom Kippur and the Handwriting on the Wall
HANDWRITING ON THE WALL
What distinguishes Am Yisroel from every other nation?
Every person and every nation, since the beginning of history, has had difficulties, trials, tribulations, sorrows, pain, trouble. It is unending.
Generally, people blame their troubles on someone else. Nations blame other nations and that is why there are unending wars. People blame other people and that is why there are unending conflicts.
There is one exception, Am Yisroel.
On Yom Kippur we klop “Al chait.” As Dovid ha Melech says, “Hashem is close to the brokenhearted; those crushed in spirit He saves.” (Tehillim 34)
When we have trouble, we look inside. We are not afraid to take the blame upon ourselves. We accept responsibility for our own inadequacies, and this is how we are able to soar above the world. We say in Selichos, “Let us examine our ways and … return to You, for Your right hand is extended to accept penitents….”
Avraham Avinu said to Yishmoel and Eliezer, “Sh’vu lachem po … you stay here with the donkey, while I and [my son Yitzchak] will go [to the Akeida].” (Beraishis 22:5) Am Yisroel is in a different universe from the rest of the world, only because we take upon ourselves responsibility for our shortcomings.
We are now at a crossroads in history. Please forgive me for the following. I am not in the business of giving advice, but I do believe that the handwriting is on the wall.
“Just then fingers of a human hand came forth and wrote on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace ... and the king saw the palm of the hand that was writing. The King’s appearance changed and his thoughts bewildered him. The belt around his waist opened and his knees knocked one against the other. The king cried aloud to bring the astrologers ….” (Daniel 5:5) But no one could interpret the writing on the wall until the Queen said to call Daniel, who interpreted the words and said to the king, “Your kingdom has been broken ….”
My friends, I want to say that we are entering a new period in history. When Moshe Rabbei-nu took our ancestors out of Mitzraim, they were able to leave only because Mitzraim, that mighty nation, collapsed. Only then did Hashem take His children out of spiritual and physical slavery to Har Sinai, where we received the Torah of Life.
What does that have to do with us?
Recently, the State of New York unleashed an attack upon the foundation of Jewish life by attacking the yeshiva system. This is not just a political maneuver. This is a seismic event. There is more: there are now daily vicious attacks on Yidden in New York City, where the perpetrators are consistently exonerated by the courts. The next day they attack again.
We have to know that the structure we have grown to know in the entire world of Golus is crumbling. A new chapter is opening; a new book is being written.
“A new king arose over Egypt, who did not know of Yosef.” (Shemos 1:8)
My friends, I believe it is time for the Jews to leave chutz l’Aretz.
This is not spiritual advice. I am not a rebbe. I do not know when Moshiach will come. I am saying simply that it is not safe for us now in the lands of the other nations. This is a matter of safety. It is time to leave.
Someone asked me last week, during a speech, whether there is room in Israel for every Jew. My friends, Hashem gave the land to us, and there is room for every Jew. The Land, if necessary, will expand for us, but we have to preserve our lives. A poisonous wind is blowing in the lands of our exile.
I am not saying Israel is paradise. Not yet. But it is the land of the future, and the lands of the Exile are crumbling. The handwriting is upon the wall.
Because we are unafraid to confront our own weakness, we can survive as spiritual people. Because we have the Torah, we can confront the Yetzer ha Ra. But we have to save our lives. It is not clear how long the Ruler of the Universe will tolerate the worldwide rebellion again Him and His Torah, but the ground is rumbling and the towers are shaking.
Hashem said to Avraham Avinu, “And the fourth generation shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorite shall not yet be full until then.” (Beraishis 15:16)
I believe that the “iniquity of the Amorite” may be quite close to “full.”
May Hashem have mercy upon us. May He gather us together as one. May we accept responsibility for our own inadequacies and do teshuva, returning to Him and His Torah. May our Heavenly King soon rule over us. And may our earthly king, Moshiach ben Dovid, rule over us, in the Presence of the Shechina in the Holy Land of Israel.
It could happen this year.
May we be sealed in the Book of Life.
Rabbi Winston — Shabbos Shuva
THE ACTUAL JUDGMENT on Rosh Hashanah is with respect to being a Ben Olam HaBa. As the Leshem explains, the Heavenly Bais Din decides if the person is currently worthy of going to the World-to-Come in order to decide how they should be treated in the upcoming year.
If a person is basically a Ben Olam HaBa, destined for the World-to-Come, then Heaven will give them whatever tests and suffering they require to complete their rectification while in this world. If the person is not a Ben Olam HaBa, Heaven will give them good for the time being, and save their tikun for the seven levels of Gihenom. They will then wish they had gotten it right in this world.
What does it mean to be a Ben Olam HaBa? Obviously, it is someone who has achieved a sufficient level of righteousness in this world to warrant eternal reward in the next one. They stayed focussed on what counts most in life according to G–D, unlike most others who live in this world as if it is the last one.
Why? Simply out of obedience to G–D? Because of fear of missing out on something extraordinarily wonderful? In other words, might they have enjoyed this world like everyone else, but chose to do without temporal pleasures because they were afraid it would cost them eternal pleasures?
Not, it was more than that. A Ben Olam HaBa is on a higher level than that.
The World-to-Come is about more than eternal pleasure. It is about a way of looking at life which, from our perspective, does not yet apply. But the din on Rosh Hashanahsaid differently, and so does this gemora:
Rebi Yehoshua’s son became weak and his soul left him. When he recovered, his father asked him, “What did you see?”
He answered him, “An upside-down world! [Over there], whoever is esteemed here was down, and those who are down [here] were esteemed.”
“My son,” he told him, “you saw a clear world!” (Pesachim 50a)
Rebi Yehoshua’s son thought he had seen an upside-down world in his near-death experience. His father corrected him and told him that he actually saw the world right-side-up, making our world the upside-down one.
After all, we started off in Gan Aiden, and only entered our world as part of an exile from Paradise. In a short while we got used to it, and people born into this world have known no others. It became the default world, and mankind has accustomed itself to its rules and realities. As Rebi Yehoshua’s son found out, that is a mistake.
A MISTAKE AND the source of sin, as the following indicates:
Rebi Yehudah taught: In the future, G–D will bring the yetzer hara and slaughter it in the presence of the righteous and the evil. To the righteous the yetzer hara will appear as a high mountain, and to the evil it will appear like a mere strand of hair. These will weep and those will weep. The righteous will weep and say: “How were we able to overcome so high a mountain?” The wicked will weep and say: “How were we unable to overcome this strand of hair?” (Succah 52a)
Half full glass, or half empty glass? What difference does it make if you end up with the same amount of water? The difference is that the person who sees a half-filled glass will enjoy it more than the person who sees it half-empty, feeling grateful for what he has. The half-empty-glass person will feel he is missing something, and that creates discontent. Attitude and approach to life creates a very different experience for each.
Likewise, a person who understands and appreciates that spiritual pleasure is the real pleasure—a Ben Olam HaBa perspective—will not be amused or influenced by the temptations of the yetzer hara. But for someone who thinks that material pleasure is the real thing—a Ben Olam HaZeh perspective—and giving it up for something spiritual is a great sacrifice, the yetzer hara will be a fearsome foe to confront and battle.
But when everyone gets to the world that Rebi Yehoshua’s son did during his NDE, the truth will be revealed to all. The tzaddik will be able to see the world they left through the eyes of a Ben Olam HaZeh, and will see the yetzer hara from that perspective. It will appear very large and quite overpowering.
The Ben Olam HaZeh will see the yetzer hara from the perspective of a Ben Olam HaBa, and it will appear small and harmless. They will have a difficult time understanding then how they could have been so deceived while in this world.
As the Gemora says, the Aseres Yemai Teshuvah are not for the righteous or the wicked. Their judgments were already sealed at the start of Rosh Hashanah. The Ten Days of Repentance are for everyone else who might be stuck somewhere between being a Ben Olam HaZeh and a Ben Olam HaBa. The beinoni—average person—wavers between the two, depending upon the situation and on their level of understanding. It is at this time of year that we have to make up our mind about the direction we lean to the most.
It all comes down to pleasure, and what you think it is. The vast majority of people think that the greatest pleasures in life can only be had through the physical world, and think that spiritual pleasures are just a cheap knockoff. A small minority know and appreciate that the opposite is true, that every physical pleasure is just a watered-down version of the real, spiritual pleasure, alluded to here:
In the World-to-Come there is no eating or drinking…just the righteous sitting with their crowns on their heads. They enjoy the splendor of the Shechinah, as it says, “And they gazed at G–D, yet they ate and drank” (Shemos 24:11). (Brochos 17a)
“No eating or drinking? No physical pleasure? What kind of a world will that be…” asks the yetzer hara of a Ben Olam HaZeh. “Are you kidding?” answers the Ben Olam HaBa. “You will be able to have the greatest pleasures without them being bound and limited by things like food and drink, etc. You will just soak in it, and to extent that all the physical pleasures of this world could never give you!”
THAT BRINGS US to Yom Kippur. According to Kabbalah, this holiday corresponds to the sefirah of Binah, the source of teshuvah and the level called Olam HaBa. To a Ben Olam HaZeh, Yom Kippur is a day of abstinence and long hours of prayer. To a Ben Olam HaBa, Yom Kippur is a portal to another level of existence altogether, Olam HaBa.
As Chazal say, we don’t fast on Yom Kippur. We just don’t eat because, like angels, we do not need food through a physical medium. Unlike the other 364 days of the year, we don’t whisper Boruch Shem kevod when saying the Shema on Yom Kippur, but we say it out loud, like the angels. On that day we can gain their level of spiritual clarity about G–D, hashgochah pratis, the purpose of life, etc. Free of the yetzer hara for the day, we have the opportunity to live as a Ben Olam HaBa even while still in this world.
The opportunity is automatic with the day, but taking advantage of it is not. It is a choice, but not one that a person can just make on the spot without previous work. Changing one’s mindset from Ben Olam HaZeh to Ben Olam HaBa is a life’s work that we can only do in increments. But that is a lot better than stagnating.
We have five levels of soul, and we are here to rectify the lower three. If we don’t do it in one lifetime, then we keep reincarnating until we have finished rectifying all three levels. When that is done, we do not have to reincarnate anymore, at least not for ourselves.
Yet the Arizal says that most people never make it past the level of Nefesh. They don’t know what they are doing here and what life is for. They just live out their lives as they are “served” to them, hoping to have a good one. They do not wake up in the morning wondering how they can rectify themselves a bit more that day. So they die having squandered another opportunity for personal tikun. That is stagnation.
Think about it. Now think about it some more, and then some more after that. Personal rectification is not a sideshow. It is the main event, and if you’re wondering how it can become so overlooked, just ask your yetzer hara. It’s responsible.
It does have help though. The Sitra Achra creates scenarios for the yetzer hara to use to its advantage. It makes sure there is chocolate cake around so that the yetzer haracan convince you to break your diet and eat it. It is a very distracting world, thanks to the Sitra Achra, and a very challenging one, thanks to the yetzer hara.
But not on Yom Kippur. That is the day G–D forces a day off on the Sitra Achra, and for that matter, the yetzer hara. It is a distraction-reduced day, a day of angelic clarity…if you choose to make it that, as it says:
This day, I call upon the heaven and the earth as witnesses [that I have warned] you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, so that you and your offspring will live… (Devarim 30:19)
As Tosfos says on the Gemora with which we started, life refers to the place of eternal life, Olam HaBa. Tzaddikim are judged for eternal life in the World-to-Come, though they may die in the upcoming year. Evil people die with respect to the World-to-Come, though they may live many more years to come.
The Torah is telling us then to make the choice between being a Ben Olam HaBa, and the eternal life it grants, or a Ben Olam HaZeh, and eventual death in this world and perhaps the next one as well.
We’re in the middle of that choice right now.
Ain Od Milvado, Part 20
AIN OD MILVADO is only a struggle for a Ben Olam HaZeh. They see everything in physical terms and have to remind themselves of the invisible spiritual element within everything. They believe in hashgochah pratis, but have a difficult time recognizing it in the moment, or at all.
A Ben Olam HaZeh can know that all that exists and works is only because of G–D. But they see the merchant sell a product in their store. They see the truck deliver it. They know that a factory prepared it. They understand that the farmer planted and nurtured crops to make the food possible. Yet it is difficult for them to see the hand of G–D through all of it.
A Ben Olam HaBa looks at the world differently. When they talk to people, they see them as messengers of G–D. They marvel at the miracle that brings food to their table, and their digestive system that uses it so they can do mitzvos. When they learn Torah, they learn with G–D, even if they have a chavrusa. When they pray, they pray to G–D, not at Him. G–D is not a million miles away in Heaven, He is there in front listening intently to every word…especially on Yom Kippur.
This, perhaps, is one of the reasons why we read about the Ten Martyrs during the repetition of Mussaf on Yom Kippur. There are many things to learn from the deaths of these great rabbis, but perhaps the most important lesson is the way they dealt with the crisis.
Personally, at least at first, I thought it bizarre that they spoke to the Caesar as they did, asking for three days to check with G–D about what they should do. Would you think it relevant to talk to Hitler, ysv”z, or Stalin ysv”z, the same way?
And then there was Caesar’s answer. “Okay, get back to me in three days.” And what? If they said, “No deal,” would Caesar have changed his plans?
Yes. This is what reality looks like on the level of a Ben Olam HaBa, and this is how it responds to those on that level. It only looks bizarre when you look at it from the position of a Ben Olam HaZeh. Hopefully, on Yom Kippur we will graduate from the latter to the former.
Because no day promotes Ain Od Milvado more than Yom Kippur. With the clarity of an angel, we not only know it, we see it. This is why we end off Yom Kippur with Hashem Hu HaElokim. It means the same thing, that G–D is everything and everywhere, where it is obvious and where it is not. That is the vision of a Ben Olam HaBa.

Rabbi Kahana – Parashat Vayelech and Blessings
by Rabbi Nachman Kahana | Sep 29, 2022
Blessings for All Mankind
Torah verses where HaShem proclaims that the Jewish nation will be a blessing for all mankind:
In Bereishiet 12:2-3 HaShem informs our father Avraham:
ב) וְאֶעֶשְׂךָ לְגוֹי גָּדוֹל וַאֲבָרֶכְךָ וַאֲגַדְּלָה שְׁמֶךָ וֶהְיֵה בְּרָכָה:
ג) וַאֲבָרֲכָה מְבָרְכֶיךָ וּמְקַלֶּלְךָ אָאֹר וְנִבְרְכוּ בְךָ כֹּל מִשְׁפְּחֹת הָאֲדָמָה:
And I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing (for mankind). I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.
ibid 28:13-14 HaShem informs our father Ya’akov:
וְהִנֵּה ה’ נִצָּב עָלָיו וַיֹּאמַר אֲנִי ה’ אֱ-לֹהֵי אַבְרָהָם אָבִיךָ וֵא-לֹהֵי יִצְחָק הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר אַתָּה שֹׁכֵב עָלֶיהָ לְךָ אֶתְּנֶנָּה וּלְזַרְעֶךָ:
וְהָיָה זַרְעֲךָ כַּעֲפַר הָאָרֶץ וּפָרַצְתָּ יָמָּה וָקֵדְמָה וְצָפֹנָה וָנֶגְבָּה וְנִבְרֲכוּ בְךָ כָּל מִשְׁפְּחֹת הָאֲדָמָה וּבְזַרְעֶךָ:
And HaShem was by him (as Ya’akov slept) and said, I am the Lord, the God of Avraham your father and the God of Yitzchak; the land on which you lie I will give to you and to your offspring. And your offspring shall be (many) like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south, and all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you and in your offspring.
Here are two verses that make mankind dependent upon the fate of Am Yisrael. If we are deserving of HaShem’s blessings, then the gentiles will also partake in the goodness that HaShem will shower upon His chosen people. However, if we are found to be undeserving of HaShem’s benevolence, then there will be strife and suffering among the nations.
During the Days of Awe
Thinking people have agendas in life which give them the impetus to jump out of bed in the morning. For the very observant Jew, it is praying at the time called haNetz (the first sighting of the sun’s sparkling over the horizon); for others it’s the dream deal about to be signed at the office, and for the unthinking the day begins with the first alcoholic drink.
Our agenda on the Days of Awe (between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur) is to convince the Creator of our sincere intentions to repent for our past sins and our deep-felt resolutions to improve the religious quality of our lives, from now into the distant future.
On Rosh Hashana the King of the Universes instantaneously peruses all of His creations from the mineral world to flora, fauna and up to homosapians, and even the heavenly entities of Serafim, Ophanim and all the rest. So why did HaShem not include in the Days of Awe and repentance the list of Noachide mitzvot? For as things stand now, as we rush to the bet knesset on Rosh Hashana, the gentile part of humanity has no inkling as to what is awaiting them on this very day?
The term “Rosh Hashana”, as distinct from the first of Tishrei, appears once in the Torah (Devarim 11:12):
אֶרֶץ אֲשֶׁר ה’ אֱ-לֹהֶיךָ דֹּרֵשׁ אֹתָהּ תָּמִיד עֵינֵי ה’ אֱ-לֹהֶיךָ בָּהּ מֵרֵשִׁית הַשָּׁנָה וְעַד אַחֲרִית שָׁנָה
A land that HaShem looks after endlessly. HaShem’s “sight” is forever upon her, from the year’s beginning (from Rosh Hashana) to year’s end.
On Rosh Hashana the order of HaShem’s judicial overview begins with the Jews in Eretz Yisrael, and as we go so goes the rest of humanity. If after making the relevant qualitative and quantitative computations of mitzvot verses avairot (sins), HaShem makes His judgment that the Jews in the holy land are deserving of a good year. He then extends our blessings to the rest of humanity. If, however, we are found to be spiritually lacking, the world will experience strife, wars, famines, global warming, etc.
I have a suggestion for the world. Let every nation contribute ten percent of their R and D (research and development) money to “start-up Israel” and sit back for startling scientific results.
On Rosh HaShana HaShem deals on a “one to one” level only with the Jews in Eretz Yisrael. If we are cumulatively found to be worthy and are inscribed for a successful coming year, then the world will benefit from our largess. If, however, we are found to be lacking, then there will be no peace and tranquility, but strife, wars, famines, global warming and all the rest.
I know that this view is very much politically incorrect, but, then again, when were we Jews ever politically correct? The gentile capitalist screams that the Jews are Communists, while the Communists scream that we are capitalists; some scream “go back to Palestine” and others “get out of Palestine”.
Bilam had it right when he said (Bamidbar 23,9):
כִּי מֵרֹאשׁ צֻרִים אֶרְאֶנּוּ וּמִגְּבָעוֹת אֲשׁוּרֶנּוּ הֶן עָם לְבָדָד יִשְׁכֹּן וּבַגּוֹיִם לֹא יִתְחַשָּׁב:
For from the top of the crags I see him; from the hills I behold him.
Here is a people uniquely alone and not reckoning itself among the nations!
The Torah way of life and thinking is independent of that of the gentile’s.
Could that be the reason they love us so much!?
G’mar chatima tova & Shabbat Shalom

Rabbi Weissman – Moles and Mosrim Part 6.0
Attached below is a further expose of the Rabbinical Council of Baltimore, the Baltimore Bikur Cholim, and related Judenrat who distorted the Torah to push Covid propaganda on those they were supposed to protect. The author is a Torah scholar in the community, and this is shared with permission. Please read and share widely. People need to know and they need to rebel against the corrupt leadership.
Moles and Mosrim in Brooklyn – Part Six
The April 6 meeting concluded with a discussion. Avi Greenstein, President of the Boro Park Jewish Community Council (BPJCC) shared that they were “in talks with SIJCC (Staten Island Jewish Community Council) to collaborate on programming for youth/children“ and that the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) “has also linked SIJCC to Project Hospitality, another CDG (Covid Disparity Grant) partner.”
Programming for children, or programming the children?
We have a glimpse here of the incestuous web of recipients of government payoffs collaborating on indoctrinating the Jewish community. One wonders if these various organizations ever worked so closely on anything else. The common goal of benefiting the community never seems to bring Jewish leaders together as did the common goal of receiving government prize money. Partners indeed.
David Rubel, the freelance consultant who was working for the DOHMH, reported “that there has been some pushback/resistance from community members when implementing community conversations”. He further noted that “community members want to be more reliant on anti-bodies / natural immunity than the vaccine.”
Despite the richly funded, meticulously planned efforts to convince them otherwise, many people in the community did not believe that the Covid shot was the only reasonable option, let alone a reasonable option at all.
In fact, it seems the propaganda campaign had hit a wall. A subsequent meeting on May 4, 2022 began with the obligatory “data review” of certain heavily Orthodox zip codes:
o 11230: 59% of all residents are fully vaccinated
o 11219: 53% of all residents are fully vaccinated
These figures were unchanged from the ones reported at the April 6 meeting, where they had reported a slight increase from the previous month, and a significant increase from the beginning of the “contract start date” in December. But now the progress had completely stalled.
Just like the “vaccines” they were promoting, the propaganda had limited benefits which wore off quickly. They needed a boost.
The DOHMH then shared “Qualitative findings: barriers to vaccination“, which included the following concerns:
▪ Efficacy of the vaccine
▪ Efficacy of treatment
▪ Effects on fertility
These concerns were most reasonable from day one, and they were only substantiated since then. Even the most enthusiastic cheerleaders for the shots had to admit that their “efficacy” was nowhere near what had originally been advertised. The shots did not prevent people getting sick, they did not prevent people from spreading Covid, whatever protection they afforded was short-lived, and they did not protect against new “variants”.
Of course, the “scientific” response was to change the definition of “vaccine” so these shots would still qualify (after all, we need to be more inclusive) and double down on Covid shots for everyone, every few months, forever. If people were taking these shots and still getting sick, the problem wasn't with the shot; it was with the people who refused to take it.
The DOHMH then shared the following “other community concerns”:
▪ Mental health, stress, insomnia
▪ Nutritional and vitamin deficiencies
▪ Blood pressure
▪ Losing virtual services
▪ Rent prices increasing
It's unclear why this information was shared, because these concerns were not reciprocated or given any further attention. After this brief interruption with real physical, emotional, and economic problems that the community had shared with intelligence-gathering Judenrat, the government agents immediately returned to pushing Covid shots. Most likely these “other concerns” only interested the DOHMH and company to the extent that they could leverage this information to pretend to care about the people, and then introduce “vaccine” propaganda.
David Rubel, the consultant who was helping the BPJCC strategize their propaganda campaign, then shared an “important nuance: It’s not that people are anti-vaccine, they just believe they are already protected [through natural immunity/anti-bodies]”.
Did the DOHMH concede this perfectly legitimate point, that many people had little need for a vaccine, even assuming it worked as advertised and didn't come with a host of serious risks and unknowns?
Does a motivated sales agent tell people they have no need for the product?
Dr. Olusimbo Ige of the DOHMH had a better idea: convince everyone that their reasons for not taking the shots were unfounded. Most doctors these days specialize in treating specific conditions or parts of the body, and it seems Dr. Ige's specialty is the brain. Washing it, to be precise.
Rabbi Weissman – Moles and Mosrim Part 6.5
Her bio reads as follows: “Dr Olusimbo Ige is a public health physician with extensive expertise in implementation research with over 30 peer reviewed publications . She holds Bachelor of Medicine, Masters in Epidemiology and Biostatistics and Masters in Public Health degrees from Nigeria and the UK. Her expertise is in leveraging data to provide insights and integration of processes, systems, and behaviors needed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public health programs.”
For those who need help with the buzzwords, “implementation research”, according to Fauci's NIH, refers to “the scientific study of the use of strategies to adopt and integrate evidence-based health interventions into clinical and community settings”. In other words, studying people and communities to figure out how to get them to do what you want.
Even better, Ige and her team at the Center for Health Equity and Community Wellness, NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, use “a racial and social justice approach”. Because, obviously, when facing a health issue people's race and a shady agenda should be the main area of focus. Nothing to be concerned about there.
Ige proceeded to equip her operatives on the ground with hand-picked studies to increase people's fear of catching the “Omicron” variant, even if they previously took shots. As per her actual job as a medical propagandist, Ige focused exclusively on angles that would increase people's fear of Covid and indicate that the only reasonable decision would be to take more shots.
If Ige was aware of any potential downsides to taking the shots at the late date of May 4, 2022, she did not demonstrate this at the meeting. It didn't serve the purpose, and was outside her job description, besides.
Ige then noted that “Data does not necessarily convince people, emotional connection does”. This was well within her job description – not to inform people so they could make the best decision for themselves, but to convince them, using emotional manipulation if slanted data didn't do the trick.
“BP [Boro Park] community members have been more receptive to COVID-19 treatment than to vaccination”.
Despite the tidal wave of propaganda coming at them from all directions, and despite upholding a religious belief that protecting one's health and the lives of others are of paramount importance, the Boro Park community had largely decided that the Covid shots were not the best option. Were they all too stupid and primitive to make a proper assessment? Was any conclusion other than taking the shots unreasonable and unacceptable? Was it at all possible that they were on to something?
Dr. Ige's job wasn't to give serious consideration to such questions, but to “implement” an agenda:
“Moving forward - “How can we sell prevention?”
Ige wasn't asking how they could convince people to prevent illness with a more healthy lifestyle. That wasn't in the sales catalogue. Only Covid shots. These "experts" were nothing more than undercover salesmen for drug companies.
What better salesman to Orthodox Jews than trusted individuals and organizations embedded in the community? Here is a partial list of "funded partners for Jewish community engagement" (translation: paid propagandists) that Ige shared in a JOWMA presentation (which you can listen to here).
So what was the best way to sell "prevention" in the form of Covid shots? "Stories tend to be the most powerful – stories from people who have lost loved ones, EMT/ambulance workers”
To be clear, she wasn't talking about stories from people who lost loved ones to heart attacks, strokes, and unexplained “sudden deaths” in the aftermath of taking the shots. She was talking about stories from people who lost loved ones to “Covid” – which, as we know, might well have been prevented with early treatment, and might well have been caused by neglect or willful medical malpractice – otherwise known as murder – in hospitals.
But if people with signs of illness were treated properly, instead of being left to deteriorate, then had tubes shoved down their throats while being drugged into a coma, there wouldn't be quite so many emotional stories for people to connect to, and frighten them into taking Covid shots. How could Ige and her superiors implement the health agenda without generating enough “Covid deaths”?
When it comes to social justice, some people just have to take it on the chin for the greater good. Not the powerful and privileged, but you.
Also note the use of EMT/ambulance workers to help spread the fear and propaganda. When it comes to the Orthodox Jewish community, no one is better suited for that than Hatzolah. And true to their reputation, when called upon to help implement the agenda, Hatzolah responded in record time.

IT IS PROVIDENCE?
“Donald Trump was providential. He’s a blunt force trauma armor piercing shell.” – Steve Bannon
If you are the opponents of Donald Trump you must be thinking what in the heck is going on? Does this man not understand the word former?
Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr, Clinton, Bush Jr, Obama….every single one of them eventually faded publicly, some a little more than others but for the most part they checked out.
Donald Trump is anything but checked out. In fact, you get the sense he is everywhere all at the same time. He’s issuing statements left and right on every conceivable topic
from raids, rigging, audits, borders, endorsements, and a host of other topics. We’re talking about a former President who has one more rally coming up in the next week after just completing his 26th since the 2020 election. This guy seems like he is everywhere still to this very day. Is this how a former President conducts himself? When I think of Donald J. Trump the last word that comes to mind is former. Regardless of your position on his actual status politically there is no arguing his presence has never been stronger.
But why is he doing this? And I am not looking for all the common answers:
- Because the election was stolen
- Because the real insurrection was November 3rd, 2020
- Because Biden can’t be president
- Because the commies are trying to take over
I get it. All those things are true and I don’t want to diminish the importance of any of them. But none of those statements answer that one simple question. Why is he doing this? He is doing this because there was, is, and has always been a plan. Just watch, look, and listen.
In my recent 6 part Substack series Flight 1745 we cover a range of happenings within the Donald Trump geo-political sphere that will either confirm your suspicions, enhance you understanding, or flat out surprise you in ways that are both encouraging and thought provoking. Often times we spend so many cycles on what ‘they’ did when we should be spending far more time on what is being done right before our eyes by what the history books will call ‘The Heroes of the Trump Era’.
And don’t kid yourself. That is precisely what we are experiencing, a ‘Trump Era’. The definition around era is open to interpretation, but for example purposes let’s say it’s 10 or more years. I believe the Trump era when all is said and done will likely have lasted from 2015-2030. From the moment he came down the escalator until at least 2 years into the term of whomever follows him after he leaves office at the end of 2028. The first two years of a new administration is often a reflection of both the incoming and outgoing administration and the current administration is a picture perfect example. I am quite sure that even many democrats are looking back at the first Trump term with ever-growing fondness. (continue)
