Rabbi Mizrachi on Trump/Putin


Right at the start of this shiur, hear Rabbi Mizrachi's take on the Trump Putin meeting yesterday.

I'm pretty sure I know exactly what is going on here, with Trump's acceptance of Putin and the subsequent world condemnation....and Rabbi Mizrachi's views fit in with my own. Because blessing rests on that which is hidden, i am not going to elaborate... and if you leave a comment and write what i am thinking... I may not publish it [but I'll acknowledge it] because again some things should be kept silent. Perhaps Rabbi Kessin will expound in his next shiur, and I can't wait to hear if my thoughts tie in with his.....

B”H This was a tremendous lecture; learned a lot.
His analysis was spot on, and I also thought the same and was telling my husband that, and then Rabbi Mizrachi says it. Beautiful.

He's totally right about Trump and it does work in with R Kessin's belief that Trump is the mashiach of Edom, but I just hate it when a Rav says 'and the damage will be felt for the next 20/30 years... There is no next 20/30 years the creation will be brought to completion well before then.

anon @5:47 am, agree with you! It bothered me also when he said about the next 20 t0 30 years. Here we are constantly speaking of and yearning for Moshiach, understanding that we are in the era of his coming, so why even think or say 20-30 years from now. I've heard other rabbis also saying the same thing contradicting their own messages.

Sometimes he knows what he's talking about and at other times...well what can I say. Dogma, kever Yosef...hundreds of us go to his kever, if we have the zehut, under IDF guard and with permission. It is no more dangerous to go there than it is to go to HaMachpelah. In fact, it might be more dangerous in Hevron, because we don't have the same level of security. I wish he would stick to Torah and stop wandering off on roads of which he is ill-informed. So many times he gives out wrong information, that it totally turns me off from his shiurim.

I did not listen to the whole shiur, just the beginning, so I can't comment on what you have written.

Neshama said...

dvorah, it sounds like you are disagreeing with a Torah Scholar. Could you be more precise in what you disagree with?

Because of a certain element infecting the world, many opinions and perspectives by well-meaning persons are unfortunately clouded and distorted, causing others to become misinformed and confused as well. This is so prevalent that one could compare this situation to the fractious climate that preceded the end of the Second Temple. The whole history behind the first and second calamities that enveloped our Jewish Nation is so eye-opening and, and in my opinion, recurring in today’s rampant corruption.

Since we Jews are now in our Land a third time, one in which Hashem promised we would not be expelled again, and we are also in the last years before 6000, so many of the prophecies about the end of days are imminent.

Neshama: Why are you making a fuss over the natural questions asked here by the commenters. No one is disparaging anything that the Rabbi said, other than he brought up as many other do also that in '20 to 30 years' ....., when the whole premise of these videos and lectures are about the imminent Geulah - may it be immediately. It seems a number of us listening to this very good video found it strange to talk about the upcoming 20 to 30 years just passing by with no redemption.
That's all. No big deal; nothing sinister was meant. Maybe being in galut for millenia, we just automatically think about time as just passing even when we await daily for the coming of Moshiach

Re "I wish he would stick to Torah and stop wandering off on roads of which he is ill-informed. So many times he gives out wrong information” = not nice to say, keep it to yourself.
