Parshas Hashavua is up on the Shuvu Banim International website

The Essential Point Between Kindness and Saintliness from which G-ds True Voice is Heard

When Hashem Yisborach chose to create the world for the purpose of showering His creations with goodness and so that all will recognize His greatness and merit clinging to Him, blessed He be – before any of that took place, before creation, He delegated a certain point, a point which is both light and vitality! All of the souls were drawn down from that point, and then each and every person was created from that point. “And I will speak to you from between the two Cherubs.” Man was created from ‘between the two Cherubs’. That point was drawn down from between the two Cherubs. Every person must find his way back to that point. Every person must return to his root and include himself within that point. The whole purpose of our current lifetime as well as our past lifetimes is to elevate us to that wondrous point, which is the letter “Yud”. That is why we are called, “Yehudim” (Jews); we were named after that “Yud”. The essence of a Jew – a Yid, is that little point. Every person must see to it that his entire being, his very essence – will turn back into that little point, that simple point; into the letter “Yud”. Rebbe Pinchas of Koritz said, “What is the purpose of the point on a crown? The word crown means “non-existent”. Who can merit attaining a crown? Who can merit attaining that point? Only one who is humble.” (click here to continue reading on the Shuvu Banim International website)

Watch: Rabbi Matisyahu Glazerson reads Chief Rabbi of Israel Yitzchak Yosefs letter requesting Diaspora Jews to host and accept Rabbi Berland and Shuvu Banim

RABBI BERLAND SPEAKS OUT! listen to the important message

After more than a week of not hearing from the Rav, today (tuesday) we recieved the following voice recording of Rabbi Eliezer Berland shlit"a relating to the recent false publication in his name.

Listen on the Shuvu Banim International website - click here 

Here is a transcription of the Rav's words:

"I’ve come to make it known to everyone that Chief Rabbi Goldstein is my most faithful friend, he is with me in heart and soul. He is, thank G-d, taking care of me and our kehilla here is Johannesburg, physically and spiritually. I have never had a friend like Rav Goldstein my whole life, a friend so faithful. The kehilla feels the best under his patronage, he takes care of all of the affairs of our kehilla. I only respect him and pray to G-d that he should prolong his days and years. G-d forbid that things which were never said and have no foundation or basis be publicized in my name - to say that I, G-d forbid, want to take his life. I only pray for his well-being.

G-d should prolong his days and years and establish his Kingdom forever and ever, him and his family and children for all generations until the coming of our righteous Messiah."

After hearing these words. We, at Shuvu Banim International, Yeshivat Shuvu Bonim in Jerusalem and all of Rav Berlands students want to pronounce that we stand behind the words of our Rabbi and we take back any harsh words that may have been spoken in the past and were completely taken out of context, misunderstood and have caused unintentional insult and pain to innocent individuals.
