I want to be out of Boro Park NOW!

With Hurricane Irene a very big tree falls right in front of my rented apartment. 2 years ago the earthquake in Boro Park shakes the 5th floor where I work. Now this storm has me with no electricity and no heat as fire was shooting from the Con Edison lines right BEHIND MY APARTMENT!

I know this is HaShem shouting to me to go home! Packing bags now. Will keep everyone posted when I get home.

Thank you for putting all these links together. I have forwarded your blog to many on my email.

The hurricane is a punishment for legalizing gay marriage which is symbolized by the rainbow the same sign Hashem uses to symbolize that he will never again bring a flood unto man kind, they prounce around showing off the rainbow saying "let us legalize gay marriage" for look we have the rainbow to prove that Hashem will never again destroy the world due to our sins. They err though for Hashem promised never to destroy the world but that promise does not hold true for a single nation.

With much of Lakewood still without power, I humbly feel that Hashem is trying to send us a message that "we" are putting out the light of the beauty of Lakewood, the largest town in the US of Torah learning. The light of the Kedusha the light of thousands of Torah learners right here in our town of Lakewood

We have more Yeshivas and Mesiftas than in any other town or city in America BY"H

It's time for all of us to make a Cheshbon Hanefesh and see what could be corrected to bring back the light of the Schinah to Lakewood the town of Torah and Chessed

If we don't take this storm seriously who knows what other difficult message Hashem might have to send us in order to wake up and do Teshuva?

Take a moment and think...are we living a spiritual life at least similar to our great grand parents, the way they lived when they arrived in America some 70 years ago? or are we indulged in our clothing, i.e. shoes, jewelry, belt, coat, & mink coats, handbags, boots, shopping, hunting for bargains, living in restaurants, redoing our kitchens every so often, always planning our next vacations, now Leshem Mitzvah we are busy planning our winter vacation, and of course don't forget Motzai Shabbos hot Pizza & fries, eating it in the pizza shops in mixed company, we have turned into a major planning board not leaving enough time to see and plan our lives as "how to serve Hashem better”

Lets be honest it's almost impossible to walk the streets and keep our eyes clean, and yes, I am talking in neighbourhoods of Bnai Torah and Chasidim, not in Harlem, Miami Beach or Las Vegas
This "FrankenStorm" has been felt by many of us we are all suffering because of it in one way or another, but..... The million dollar question is: are we waking up to Hashems cry?

Now let’s be strong and say to Hashem: OK we are ready to change our ways of life, our materialism life style that we have lived up to now will change!!! We’ll start getting ourselves ready for the coming of Moshiach by living a true Torah life. BTW When Moshiach arrives there will be nothing left of all our Gasmius, so get a head start...and get rid of it now lets be more careful with all of the Halocos and Mitzovos of our special sweet Torah.



s.p. I would like to ask everyone to take this Frankenstorm warning from Hashem very seriously

Oy, so much suffering. Yet, coming home is part of the message. Rather than rebuilding Lakewood in New Jersey, rebuild it here. Come home. I hope those who say that we need to go home that they are referring to Eretz Yisrael. Every other place is a weigh station even if one is necessarily there.
