There is a broad consensus amongst our Gedolim that we are in a period of time now called Ikvese Demeshicha – or the End of Days(Click here to read this letter from the Gadol HaDor Rav Chaim Kanievsky stating emphatically that we are indeed in the days known as the Ikvesa demeshicha or the End of days).   More recently Rav Kanievsky has been reported as urging the Jewish Olam to make aliyah for the imminent redemption.  When asked what message he had for klal Yisroel at this time and for a chizuk for the Jews of chutz la’aretz (the Diaspora), Harav Kanievsky solemnly declared: “The coming of Moshiach is imminent and he is on his way… It is stated in the Talmud that after the conclusion of the shmitta year Ben Dovid (the scion of Dovid) will come.”  To view this report, click here.  

To drive this point further into our consciousness, take a look at this wonderfully done 2 minute video about a young boy who goes to sleep in Galut and wakes up in Geula.  To view, click here

How does a Torah observant Jew in the 21st century traverse such a potentially volatile and confusing time period? What can we rely on, when from every side, every aspect of life is unravelling? We have nowhere to turn, no solutions, other than turning to Hashem Himself. This is the answer given in the Mishnah at the end of mesechta Sota. The Mishnah asks: “upon whom do we have to rely? “ and it answers: “we can only rely on our Father in Heaven,” (‘Avinu Sh’bshamayim’). Thus, there is one basic overarching strategy for dealing with this time period which is "relying and turning completely and only to Hashem". (to learn more about what we need to strengthen ourselves during the End of Days, go to our Community of Resources/Binyan Olam .)

Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein states very poignantly in a shiur he gave during Parshat Yisro in 2009 that only those Jews who hold on tight to their Emunah and trust in Hashem during these times of turbulence and uncertainty will merit to witness the unfolding of history and be a part of the climactic finale of the final redemption (to hear a 5-minute excerpt from this shiur, click here). 

In taking these words very much to heart, we have embarked on this endeavor to provide you with easy, fingertip access to multiple resources, including: seminars, audio links with inspiring shiurim and uplifting musical selectionsVideos and inspiring articles. They all share one aim: to build a community of Jewish women who are dedicated to developing a more palpable and personal relationship with the Creator. It is in the merit of the righteous women, the Midrash tells us, that the Geula will unfold. Amongst these women are those who are building their homes and teaching their loved ones the secret of “relying and turning completely and only to Hashem”

In Every Generation They Rise Up To Destroy Us
Rabbi Avrohom M. Alter, Yeshivat Migdal Torah, Chicago, IL

Be a "Spiritual Settler" and Not a "Spiritual Nomad"
Rabbi Tzadok Cable, Rav of Kehillas Ezra Hasofer Ramat Beis Shemesh Gimmel

Every once in awhile I hear a class that's so right on, so hits the "nail on the head" , and so resonates with my"G-d Direct"  wave length that I want to climb to the top of some high roof top and yell out: "hey women of Klal Yisrael, you gotta hear this stuff!"  Such was the case last week when Rabbi Tzadok Cable gave over the latest installment in our Living in the Present Moment phone chaburah.  The Rav clarified the difference between being a "spiritual settler" vs. a "spiritual nomad".  From the time we wake up in the morning to the time we go to sleep at night, we need to acquire the mind set of being "b'Makom" ; of being in "Hashem's place" and as such everything we do should be integrated within that framework and focus.

LISTEN for yourself to this transformative class.  Your Avodat Hashem will never be the same again!

It must be practiced, it doesn't necessarily come at once… No one is born trusting Hashem. It is the effort we put in to guide our minds and to think these thoughts that create the protection."

Empowering Jewish Women to Action
Rebbertzin Chaya Levine

We learn that in the merit of the Jewish Women, we were redeemed from Egypt and in the merit of the righteous Jewish women in the future, we will be redeemed again.  As we enter into this difficult time period, now more than ever we need to gather ourselves together as Jewish women,  do Teshuva, and pray that our Unity is no longer built on tragedy but rather built on Positive Actions and Unity Initiatives.  Listen to Rebbetzin Chaya Levine, widow of Rabbi Kalman Zeev Levine, Hy”d,  who was amongst the four kedoshim  brutally murdered in Har Nof.   During this very personal and poignant meeting with Rebbetzin Levine,  she described for us one such powerful initiative.  She also not only gives us as Jewish Women a Call to Action, but shares with us her personal story from the morning she learned of her husband’s death till today.

One Entity: The Essence of a Jewish Marriage
Rebbetzin Ruchi Goldenberg, Beit Shemesh, Israel.

Chazal teach us that there exists a marital relationship between HaKadosh Baruch Hu and Klal Yisarel.  In order to properly appreciate this relationship paradigm better,  we need to understand what is the essence of a Jewish marriage, what is the inherent holiness between husband and wife.  Having been married almost 20 years, I’m just now beginning to understand thanks to Rebbetzin Ruchi Goldenberg.  LISTEN  to this beautiful and eye opening shiur revealing the true secrets of marriage or as the Rebbetzin teaches: “This is the way Hashem created the world; a woman draws her inner identity, her essence, from her husband.” This was a big chiddush for me and I'd like to share it with you. 

This shiur is based on a chapter from a newly published sefer entitled: My Soul Desire published by Beis Hamidrash Neizer Yisrael of Harav Avraham Tzvi Kluger.  To read this excerpt, click here.
