Rabbi Eliezer Berland gave yesterday (Tuesday) a shiur over the phone to the Breslov Center in Miami for 10 minutes, in which he called on the entire community numbering about 70 persons, to immigrate to Israel.
Rabbi Berland said the following: "On Motzaei the first day of Sukkot everyone has to be in Israel to greet the mashiach in Jerusalem, men, women and children and infants who do not know how to crawl. So right after Yom Kippur, everyone has to go to Israel! And for the citizens of Israel too, everyone must come to Jerusalem right after the first day of Sukkot to hear the king read the Torah as the Rambam says in Hilchos Chagigah".
On Rosh Chodesh Elul Rabbi Eliezer Berland said in his lesson: "Now we have forty days until Yom Kippur and 45 days before the soul of Moshiach will be actually revealed".
Rabbi Eliezer Berland has recently given four shiurim to his students and followers in Israel and abroad over the phone and the Shuvu Banim International website, from his stay in Guatemala - as revealed for the first time in Behadrey Haredim. According to the rabbi's words in the shiur on 22nd Av, he asked his students not to come to Guatemala but to travel to Uman for Rosh Hashanah.
"The Rabbi is in the capital, and asked not to go there! Do not go! Behave simply! Make the kibbutz only at Rabbeinu! Only at Rabbeinu hakadosh vehanora! And Rabbeinu will protect all of you for being there on Rosh Hashanah, and do not make any tricks, then you will see Mashiach ben David!"
During all the last shiurim which lasted for about an hour, Rabbi Berland spoke enthusiastically about the geulah and his veteran talmidim say they have never heard their teacher speaks like that for years.
On Erev Rosh Chodesh Elul, the Rabbi added exact dates of the process of revelation of Moshiach, which he said will start on Yom Kippur, and will continue for another 6 years until the end of 5781. "We are now preparing the Yom Kippur of 5776, preparing the Yom Kippur a day of salvation of 5781 when the Rosh Hashanah will come out on Shabbos and Pesach on Motzaei Shabbos and there will be a Purim Meshulash, when there will be the geulah, then it will be a day for relief, 5781, so will the true salvation to Israel, which Daniel prophesized that this will be on two thousand and three hundred, morn till eve, 2300 years, which will end in 5781, the year of Israel's salvation.
"And now we are preparing in these same six years, and those six years from 5776 until 5781, these are years of redemption, those are years in which the people of Israel will repent, the biggest criminals repent, because there are no secular in the Jewish people, there are no criminals among the people of Israel, no wicked people of Israel, those are all stages in the salvation, it's all stages in the development of the soul, in accepting the parts of the soul, the biggest gangster in the end will become the most righteous man."
It should be noted that in all the years Rabbi Berland spoke against those who calculate the time of the geulah and against those who are trying all the time to determine the time of the coming of the mashiach, but as the Malbim writes, when we get close to the redemption we will be permitted to speak of dates. Even Hagaon R' Chaim Kanievsky said recently to CEO of Yad Sarah Rabbi Moshe Cohen and director of the emergency switchboard and hospitalization plan Rabbi Nachum Gitman, when they came to receive his blessing on installing panic buttons in shulls, "until the Yomim Tovim Mashiach will come and you won't need to install panic buttons any longer".
