RAV ELCHONON WASSERMAN HY"D

IN LAST WEEKS' JEWISH TRIBUNE 21 / 08 / 2014, THERE WAS  A FANTASTIC FEATURE ON " IKVESA D'MESHICHA"  ON RAV ELCHONON WASSERMAN HY"D
HOW HE LOOKED AT THE PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD IN 1937
AND HOW WE MUST LOOK AT PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD TO-DAY.
IN 1937 THE UNITED STATES WAS A SPIRITUAL WILDERNESS AT THAT TIME.
RAV ELCHONON VISITED MANY AMERICAN CITIES DELIVERING IMPASSIONED ADDRESSES TO HUGE CROWDS WHEREVER HE WENT.
SOME BECAME COMPLETE " BAALEI TESHUVAH " AS A RESULT OF THEIR ENCOUNTERS WITH HIM.
HE RETURNED TO POLAND  WHEN STORM CLOUDS HUNG OVER POLAND.
I HEARD THIS FROM MRS STERNBUCH OF LONDON MYSELF.
 SHE TOLD ME WHAT RAV ELCHONON WASSERMAN SAID TO HER.
" THESE ARE THE BIRTH PANGS OF MOSHIACH AND IT HAS BEEN DECREED UPON US TO BEAR THEM. A PERSON CAN NOT AVOID HIS ASSIGNED PORTION OF THE BIRTH PANGS OF MOSHIACH ."
REB ELCHONON CITES THE FOLLOWING OBSERVATION OF THE CHOFETZ CHAYIM.
" TO-DAY, WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, THE WORLD IS UNDERGOING MAJOR CHANGES WHICH,IN EARLIER GENERATIONS WOULD HAVE OCCURRED OVER THE COURSE OF CENTURIES.
EVERY INTELLIGENT PERSON UNDERSTANDS THAT WE ARE LIVING IN A UNIQUE PERID.
ONE THAT IS DESTINED TO CHANGE THE ENTIRE WORLD ORDER.
REB ELCHONON APPLIED THE VERSE FOUND IT THE TOCHOCHOH ( Reproof ).
" YOU SHALL BE MAD FROM THE SIGHT OF YOUR EYES " ( Devorim 28:34 ).
THIS PUNISHMENT, APPLIES ONLY TO THOSE WHO ATTEMPT TO UNDERSTAND THE HAPPENINGS THROUGH HUMAN REASONING, BUT IT DOES NOT APPLY TO ONE WHO DELVES INTO THE TORAH FOR UNDERSTANDING.
 FOR THEM ALL IS UNDERSTANDABLE.
HASHEM WILL " JUDGE " HIS NATION WITH SUFFERING AND AFFLICTION, BUT IN THE END, HE WILL REDEEM THEM FROM EXILE.
HE WHO PROVIDES LIFE, PROVIDES SUSTENANCE HOWEVER A WEAKENING OF EMUNAH HAS BROUGHT WITH IT A WEAKENING IN BITOCHON.
MANY PARENTS BELIEVE THAT A SECULAR EDUCATION WILL GUARANTEE MATERIAL NEEDS FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES (or marrying rich )
THE TORAH TELLS US: " AND I WILL SEPARATE YOU FROM THE NATIONS TO BE MINE. "
WHEN A JEW FINISHES HIS DAYS' WORK, HE MUST IMMERSE HIMSELF IN TORAH STUDY.
RAV ELCHONON WROTE HIS ESSAY AT A TIME WHEN JEWS WERE A PRIME TOPIC OF DISCUSSION A SITUATION IN WHICH WE FIND OURSELVES TO-DAY.
WE MUST REMAIN FIRM IN OUR EMUNAH AND HOW IS THIS ACCOMPLISHED ? ?                   ONLY THROUGH TORAH ! ! !

BEING A JEW

LATELY WHEN I WALKED IN THE STREET BEING RECOGNISED AS A JEW,  PEOPLE SHOUT OUT OF THEIR CARS ( especially because of the situation in Gaza ) JEW, YID  ! ! !
THEY THINK I AM EMBARRASSED AT BEING JEWISH AND WOULD COMPLAIN ABOUT ANTI-SEMITISM.
I AM  VERY PLEASED THAT THEY RECOGNISE ME AS A JEW.
I AM A JEW AND WANT TO BE A JEW.
I AM PROUD AT BEING JEWISH AS IS WRITTEN IN OUR PRAYERS:
" YOU HAVE CHOSEN US FROM ALL THE PEOPLES AND HAVE PROCLAIMED YOUR GREAT AND HOLY NAME UPON US ".
I AM GOING TO PROVE TO YOU THAT PRAYER IS TRUE.
MORE KILLINGS ARE GOING ON IN THE ARAB WORLD THEN IN GAZA.
WE HARDLY HEAR ANYTHING ABOUT THAT ON THE MEDIA. 
ALL DAY THE RADIO AND TELEVISION ARE FULL OF ISRAEL AND GAZA BUT MORE PEOPLE AND BIGGER ATROCITIES ARE BEING DONE IN THE ARAB WORLD.
THE ANSWER IS IN THE PRAYER YOU HAVE CHOSEN US FROM ALL OTHER PEOPLE
AND THAT IS WHAT EVERY JEW NEEDS TO BE PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE( frum or not ).

ANTI-SEMITISM AND THE JEWS

 BEING A RELIGIOUS JEW I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED WHY G=D LETS
 ANTI-SEMITISM SPREAD TO HIS PEOPLE.
WHY DO JEWS HAVE TO SUFFER IN THIS WAY.
I ANSWER THEM  THAT ANTI-SEMITISM  IS A GREAT SAVIOUR TO KEEPING THE JEWISH PEOPLE JEWISH.
BEFORE THE SECOND WORLD WAR THE JEWS OF GERMANY WERE MORE GERMANS THEN THE GERMANS, THEY DRESSED AND RESPECTED THE GERMAN CULTURE.
BUT HITLER YM"S AND HIS AT ANTI JEWISH ATTITUDE STARTED NOT IN POLAND OR HUNGARY BUT IN THE COUNTRY WHERE JEWS TRIED TO BE AS MUCH GERMANS AS POSSIBLE IN THEIR BEHAVIOUR AND DRESS.
THERE WAS VERY STRONG ASSIMILATION  AND MARRYING-OUT IN GERMANY BEFORE THE SECOND WORLD WAR.
THANK G=D FOR ANTI-SEMITISM THAT KEEPS THE JEWISH PEOPLE AS A NATION AND JEWISH.
ALL THE PROBLEMS TO THE JEWS COMES FROM JEWISH PEOPLE FORGETTING THAT THEIR DUTY IN LIFE IS TO BEING JEWISH.
SO ANTI-SEMITISM IS NOT G=D'S DOING BUT OUR FAULT FOR WANTING TO DROP OUR JEWISHNESS.
IF WE WOULD HAVE BEEN JEWISH BY NOT ASSIMILATING AND MARRING OUT THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ANTI-SEMITISM.

 ANTI-SEMITISM IS OUR FAULT ! ! !

NOT WHERE WAS G=D,  WHERE WERE WE ? ? ?

ROLE MODELS

IN LIFE WE MAKE ROLE MODELS OF PEOPLE. 
IN THE JEWISH WORLD RABBIS AND LAY LEADERS ETC. ETC. ARE LOOKED UP UPON.
 THE SAME IS IN THE NON-JEWISH WORLD. FILM STARS, FOOTBALLERS, THE ROYAL FAMILY, AND POLITICIANS, ETC. ETC.
WHEN THESE PEOPLE ARE CAUGHT DOING SOMETHING WHICH WE DO NOT EXPECT FROM THEM SOMEONE OF THEIR STATUES WE ARE SURPRISED.
THE MISTAKE WAS NOT IN THEM, BUT IN US FOR LOOKING UP TO THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE.
G=D DID NOT MAKE ANYBODY PERFECT. 
AS WE SAY IN OUR BLESSINGS:
WHO CREATES NUMEROUS LIVING THINGS WITH DEFICIENCIES.
THERE IS NO REASON TO MAKE ANYBODY INTO A ROLE MODEL.
PEOPLE IN WHATEVER SITUATION IN LIFE HAVE TO VALUE THEIR MISTAKES AND APPRECIATE THAT G=D GAVE THEM A PRECIOUS THING THAT IS CALLED LIFE.  



WHAT THE WORLD WANTS FROM ISRAEL

THE WORLD FORGETS THAT AFTER THE HOLOCAUST THE JEWS SAID NEVER AGAIN, NEVER AGAIN ! ! !
AND TO-DAY ISRAEL HAS NOT FORGOTTEN THAT.
IF IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE OTHER WAY ROUND THAT ISRAEL WAS IN RUINS G=D FORBID, NOT GAZA.
 WE WOULD BE WAITING FOR HELP FROM THE OUTSIDE WORLD.
THE U.S AND BRITAIN WERE ASKED TO BOMB AUSCHWITZ DURING WORLD WAR TWO.
THEY ANSWERED WE CAN NOT SPARE BOMBERS.
JEWISH PEOPLE WERE A NON AGGRESSIVE PEOPLE. 
THE GERMANS  COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT THOUSANDS WENT INTO THE GAS CHAMBERS WITH ONLY A FEW GUARDS.
NEVER AGAIN, NEVER AGAIN ! ! ! ! ! !
YOU, THE CIVILISED WORLD, HAVE TAUGHT US TO BE AS AGGRESSIVE AS POSSIBLE.
IF YOU COME WITH THE INTENT OF WIPING OUT ISRAEL, OUR JEWISH PEOPLE
WILL DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO WIPE YOU OUT FIRST.
 IF NOT WE WILL TAKE YOU WITH US.
IF THERE WILL BE NOTHING LEFT OF US THERE WILL BE NOTHING LEFT OF YOU.

FORBIDDEN RELATIONSHIPS


THIS IS TO EXPLAIN PEOPLE WHO WANT FORBIDDEN RELATIONSHIPS.

 THE WHOLE DESIRE FOR THE FORBIDDEN RELATIONSHIP IS ONLY BECAUSE IT IS NOT ALLOWED.                                                                                                                                                                                                    IN LIFE WHAT PEOPLE CAN NOT DO OR  HAVE, THEY WANT TO DO.                                                                                                                            TO EXPLAIN THIS CLEARLY MAN AND MAN DO NOT FIT TOGETHER LIKE HUMAN AND ANIMAL DO NOT FIT TOGETHER.                                                                                                                                           IF FOR TWO MINUTES THEY WOULD THINK WHAT THEY ARE DOING THEY WOULD NOT DO IT.                                                                  THE SAME AS TAKING YOUR OWN LIFE AS EXPLAINED ON MY BLOG.

A G=D FEARING  JEW LEARNS TO  LIVE WITH HIS BRAIN NOT HIS EMOTIONS ! !                                                                                      THAT'S WHAT G=D WANTS.

FACING YOUR PROBLEMS

I WAS TALKING TO A FEW PEOPLE TO-DAY ABOUT THE NEWS THAT COMIC GENIUS ROBIN WILLIAMS WHO TOOK HIS OWN LIFE HE WAS ONLY 63.
THEY FELT SORRY FOR HIM.
 THEY SAID: " HE WAS ILL SUFFERING FROM SEVERE DEPRESSION. "
I ANSWERED THEM: " SOMEONE WHO TAKES HIS OWN LIFE BECAUSE HE IS SUFFERING IS A NOT A NORMAL PERSON, HE HAS NOT THOUGHT THROUGH THE SITUATION.
IF SOME ONE WOULD HAVE SET DOWN WITH HIM AND TALKED THROUGH THE PROBLEMS HE HAS AND SHOWN HIM TAKING YOUR LIFE IS NOT THE ANSWER. 
NUMBER ONE:
YOU NEVER DO SOMETHING IN DEED OR TO YOURSELF YOU CAN NOT RETRACT ON (once you kill your self there is no being sorry if you cross the road you can always cross back)  BUT ONCE YOUR DEAD YOUR DEAD.
NUMBER TWO:
BE FOR HE KILLED HIM SELF  I WOULD HAVE ASKED HIM HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU ARE DEAD YOU ARE AT PEACE ( It could be that a dead person just looks at peace to us be cause he does not move but all the problems he has had when he was alive are still with him ) LIKE WE CAN NOT UNDERSTAND G=D NOBODY KNOWS WHAT IS BEFORE WE ARE BORN AND AFTER WE ARE DEAD.

HURTING SOMEONE ELSE

SCHOOLS, CHADORIM, GIRLS SCHOOLS, YESHVOS, RABBONIM, AND RABBIS
HURT CHILDREN WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG.
DO YOU THINK WHEN THESE CHILDREN GET OLDER THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT SCHOOL REFUSED ME ENTRY AND HURT ME ? ? ? 
OR THIS RABBI OR ROV TALKED BAD ABOUT ME ? ? ?
WHEN I WAS ONLY TEN YEARS OLD I WAS WITH MY TWIN BROTHER IN GATESHEAD BOARDING SCHOOL.
ALL THEY HAD WAS RULES, RULES,AND AGAIN RULES.
 NO LOVE WAS GIVEN TO US CHILDREN.
FRIDAY NIGHT THE GATESHEAD SEM GIRLS USED TO COME TO DAVEN IN THE MINYAN OF THE BOARDING SCHOOL.
THERE WERE TWO GIRLS FROM THE SEM WHOM I KNEW FROM LONDON.
 THEY WERE COUSINS ITA AND LOLA SCHLAFF.
 THEY DAVEND IN LONDON IN PINTERS.
 MY PARENTS ALSO DAVEND THERE.
 EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT THEY DID NOT GO BACK TO THE SEM STRAIGHT AFTER DAVENEN WAS  FINISHED.
 THEY USED TO STOP AND TALK TO US, LOLA BECAME MRS PERLBERGER AND IS SADLY NOT WITH US ANY MORE.
ITA BECAME MRS CYMERMAN AND TO-DAY IS KNOWN AS ITA SIMONS OF THE AGUDA.
TILL THIS VERY DAY I WILL NOT FORGET THE KINDNESS THEY SHOWED TWO LITTLE BOYS.
THE SAME CAN BE SAID ON TWO PEOPLE WHO ARE NO LONGER WITH US THE SAINTLY RABBI MOSHE SCHLOSS AND HIS DEAR HOLY REBBETZEN.
BUT PEOPLE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND IN THE SAME WAY YOU REMEMBER THE GOOD CHILDREN REMEMBER THE BAD DONE TO THEM.
ALL THOSE CHILDREN WHO ARE BADLY TREATED BY SCHOOLS AND GROWN UPS WILL NOT FORGET WHEN THEY GROW UP WHAT YOU DID TO THEM.
IN YEARS TO COME THERE WILL BE MANY MORE GABY LOCKS WHO WILL WRITE ABOUT THE BAD, RABBONIM AND TEACHERS HAVE DONE TO THEM ! ! !

MY EXPLANITION ON RABBI DOVID GRYNHAUS

ON THE 9 JANUARY 1996 MY OLDEST SON GOT MARRIED.
MY WIFE WHO WENT THROUGH A VERY HARD TIME IN HAVING HIM AND COULD NOT PART WITH HIM AND IT WAS DISTURBING OUR MARRIAGE.
I HEARD OF THE JEWISH MARRIAGE COUNCIL IN HENDON AND THEY AGREED WE COULD SEE A LADY WHO CAME ONCE A WEEK TO STAMFORD HILL.
HER NAME IS MRS JANE DONY OF 24 CLAREMONT PARK FINCHLEY LONDON N3
( her husband is high up in the federation of synagogues ).
WE DID NOT ALWAYS SEE HER TOGETHER.
ONCE SHE ASKED MY WIFE WHY SHE DID NOT DIVORCE ME.
MY WIFE ANSWERED  HER SHE DID NOT COME TO THE JEWISH MARRIAGE COUNCIL TO GET DIVORCED. 
SHE CAME FOR ADVICE ON HOW TO LEARN TO LIVE TOGETHER.
I PHONED THE JEWISH MARRIAGE COUNCIL TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS.
 THEY DID NOT USE NICE LANGUAGE AND I GAVE THEM A MOUTHFUL BACK.
I DO NOT KNOW IF IT WAS MRS JANE DONY OR THE JEWISH MARRIAGE COUNCIL WHO PHONED UP RABBI DOVID GRYNHAUS(who's father was a federation synagogue man)
AND PLAYED HIM A RECORDING ( which is not legal or moral to do ) OF MY PHONE CALL
TO THE JEWISH MARRIAGE COUNCIL.
I HAD BEEN LEARNING QUIET A FEW YEARS BCHAVRUSA WITH HIM AND ALSO WENT TO HIS SHIUR.
 HE BROKE OFF THE CHAVRUSA (I told him they only played you half the conversation you did not hear in what a degrading way they talked to me). 
I NEVER KNEW HIM AS SUCH A SNOB ( all he cared about was his position in life and promotions).
 HE DID NOT WANT TO HEAR MY SIDE AT ALL. I WAS HURT, I DID NOT SAY A WORD.
AGAIN I SAY I RESPECT THE RABBONIM BUT THEY ARE NOT G=D GIFT TO MAN KIND ESPECIALLY IN BEHAVIOUR.
I DO NOT CURSE BUT I HAVE BEEN HURT A LOT OF TIMES BY LAY LEADERS AND RABBONIM IN THEIR UNFAIR TREATMENT OF ME.
I HAVE A FANTASTIC MEMORY, I  EVEN REMEMBER HOW I WAS TREATED IN GATESHEAD JEWISH BOARDING SCHOOL.
I STILL REMEMBER HOW ABA SPIELMAN WAS TREATED THERE, AND I WAS ONLY TEN BY THE EDUCATORS AND PUPILS ( how should they give him respect if the educators did not ) LOOK AT THE WAY HE TURNED OUT.
A FEW YEARS AGO I DECIDED THAT I AM COMING OUT WITH THE TRUTH IT NEEDS TO BE TOLD.
BUT I WISH EVERY JEW LOVED EVERY JEW THE WAY I DO.





GABY LOCK NEVER FORGETS ! !

MY EXPLANATION OF RABBI ROBERTS

 MORE THEN FIFTEEN YEARS AGO I STARTED WORKING  FOR THE BBC ON A PROGRAM IT WAS CALLED " VIDEO NATION." 
I WAS CALLED INTO THE RABBINATE OF THE UNION OF ORTHODOX HEBREW CONGREGATION, KEDASSIA  AT 140 STAMFORD HILL.
THE WHOLE BETH DIN WAS  THERE 12 TO 14 RABBONIM. 
THE OLD RABBI HALPERN WAS THE ONE WHO TALKED, THE OTHERS (most probably planned did not say a word ) THE  NEW RAV RABBI PADWHA WHO I USED TO LEARN WITH ALSO HIS BROTHER RABBI YOSEPH  PADWHA I LEARNED WITH THEM IN A SHIUR.
AND RABBI SHOLEM FRIEDMAN WHOM I ALSO LEARNED A LOT WITH.
RABBI AHRON DOVID DUNNER  I WAS LEARNING WITH AS A CHAVRUSA
AND RABBI DOVID GRUNHOUSE, I HAD LEARNED WITH AS CHAVRUSA.
IN LATER EDITIONS OF MY BLOG I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT THEM I RESPECT THEM VERY MUCH AND GIVE THEM THE RESPECT THAT IS DUE TO THEM.
 BUT THINKING THEY ARE G=DS GIFT TO MANKIND, I DO NOT.
RABBI HALPERN SAID TO ME WE HEAR THAT YOU MAKE VIDEOS ? ? 
I ANSWERED YES, HE SAID  " WE DO NOT AGREE WITH IT " ( interesting a few years later everybody was making videos and even shiurim kol haloshon are recorded to-day on video )
I TRIED TO EXPLAIN TO THE BETH DIN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VHS VIDEOS AND MINI RECORDING CAMERAS THAT YOU CAN NOT GET A TAPE BY BLOCKBUSTER AND WATCH A FILM ON THAT CAMERA.
AS SOON AS I STARTED EXPLAINING RABBI ROBERTS GOT UP FROM HIS PLACE AND SAID " YOU ARE A CHUTSPAN ( cheeky) " I SAID TO HIM " I HAVE A RIGHT TO EXPLAIN MYSELF. " 
HE JUST SNOBBED ME AS HE USUALLY DOES TO A PERSON WHO HAS GOT THE GUTS TO CHALLENGE THE BETH DIN.
( by the way 90% of Rabbi Roberts hendon adath have not got kosher phones and the Internet which is still band to-day ).
I TRIED A FEW TIMES TO TALK TO RABBI ROBERTS IN A NICE WAY BUT THE MAN IS SUCH A SNOB HE NEVER EVEN ANSWERED ME AS IF I WAS A PIECE OF DIRT.

YES IF YOU TREAT A PERSON LIKE DIRT HE WILL BEHAVE TO YOU LIKE DIRT ! !

I SHOWED THE VIDEO CAMERA TO THE NEW RABBI PADWA AND HOW IT WORKS HE SAID TO ME " THE BETH DIN DID NOT MEAN THAT " .
