Here's a few videos that are relevent to recent posts...
HaRav Reuven Elbaz of Or HaChaim tells the story I told about Sh'ma Yisroel and the Rav from Ponevetz with accompanying video (this is where I got the story from). It's a very powerful video and I strongly recommend it. It's in Hebrew, but the impact is pretty powerful even if you don't know Hebrew. Click here to see it. (Note Holocaust scenes included.)
HaRav HaTzaddik HaMekubal (the great rabbi, kabbalist, and saintly) Rav Yitzchok Kaduri meeting with the Admor M'Lubavitch (the grand rabbi of Lubavitch), click here. Of particular note is the last instructions from the Lubavitcher Rebbe to Rav Kaduri. The video is in Hebrew.
Someone recently sent me a link to this video by Harav Ovadia Yosef, the former chief Sefardic Rabbi of Israel, renouned saintly religious scholar and outspoken community leader, click here. (It's in Hebrew). The link came with this translation (which I can't speak for as with the quality of the audio and accent I can't make out what's being said.)
All the talk about disengagement from Gush Katif is only temporary. Immediately (tekef umiyad) Moshiach will come!! He is already at our gates! Very shortly he will knock on the door: "I am coming!
Shevua Tov (A Good Week)!
