This is Anon101. Thank you for posting this site. It is large enough print that I can read it. This is what am Yisroel needs. Devorah are u okay with the extreme weather in Australia? Keep talking to Hashem about making aliyah before the next storm. We have to pay off our daughter's school loans, praying that Hashem makes it happen soon. No prayer is not answered if you do not get it, then the answer is no, the time is not right for you. May we be worthy of surviving the redemption. I have not watched a movie for 8 months.

The extreme weather doesn't affect Sydney very often. Actually Australia has always had extreme weather, it is wellknown as ''A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges, Of droughts and flooding rains....''

Received from R' Nati [Mystical Paths]
Here is something very interesting. The sum total of the numbers of chapters of Tihillim in Tikun Haklali is the word "Iron dome" in Hebrew "kipa barzel" This is inclusive repair or if you will total spiritual repair given to us by Rebbe Nachman of Breslov. they are the following perakim of Tehillim, verses of Psalms 16+32+ 41+ 42+ 59+ 77+ 90+ 105+ 137+ 150=749.

Which equals 749 the sum total gematria of the words "kipa barzel" exactly! Our Iron dome is total ruchniut it totally spiritual for our weapon are not physical.
This is or protection! Please say them for Am Yisrael now!
