  1. how sad that so many refute reading The Book of Mormon Another Testament of Christ. You would both have so much clarified.

    IIn order to be able to relate personal stories and that of others based on my experience, I will keep my name anonymous. Let’s say I am Arik Cohen. I am not a particularly religious Jew. Just a quick background summary….Born in NYC. Grew up in NJ within the framework of the US Reform movement meaning my Judaism was defined by the number of bagels and lox I ate in a given week. I received a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from Columbia and move to Israel on a dare from an Israeli friend after he sparked my ire when he claimed that as a typical American, I would never cross the Hudson River to explore the world outside of NYC. With that after finishing my Ph.D., I decided to come to Israel at the age of 30 with $5000 in my pocket, a Ph.D., not knowing a word of Hebrew to do 1 year postdoc at an Israeli university. Here’s what happened: My 1st trip to the Western Wall in my life, I put a petek in the wall asking for a wife (this is after I spent 5 years dating every eligible Jewess in the City of New York to no avail). 4 days later in the Jerusalem YMCA (of all places), I met my Brazilian wife. She is not American and we got married by a Chabadnik in Brazil. We both decided to stay in Israel for the year of my postdoc, which became two years. That was 18 years ago. We struggled financially …. bought one apartment with salaries that are ¼ that of my American counterparts (at that time). We raised two Israeli kids: son and a daughter in a 90 sq meter third floor walk up with no elevator. Professionally over time, I started working for Intel in Israel and it was here our team entirely developed the Wi-Fi cards deployed in Centrino changing personal communications worldwide. I often asked myself if I would have had such a professional success had I stayed in the USA. My wife and I recently bought a new 140 sq m apartment with a 60 sq m garden with lemon and orange trees, and terrace with a view to the Med. It is still ¼ of the size of the house I grew up in NJ. Everyday I walk the land here, I thank G-d. Israel has truly been good to me.
    Being self taught in Judaism, I still do not keep mitzvot, but study Torah regularly. With little Jewish knowledge in comparison to the people on this forum, it always remains an anathema to me how religious Diaspora Jews still manage to justify their staying in the galut when it is a clear commandment to make aliyah. The Land of Israel was a gift from our father above and not living here is akin to spitting in his face. Moreover, I can understand the personal reasons for not living here, but there should be a clear vector in wanting and yearning to be here which is severely lacking in most sectors of the worldwide Jewish religious population. I sort of look at it this way: if we are commanded to be here, and G-d makes it very unappealing to be here (at least on the surface), then isn’t the highest level of REAL emunah to say that I will trust in G-d to grant me safety and parnassa in the land of Israel (that doesn’t mean a house big enough to land an airplane in, and three cars in the garage).
    Finally, a few things came to mind when reading the comments in this thread. First, a very famous rabbi I know associated with Aish HaTorah, who owns a little apartment in the Old City of Jerusalem, ex-American, said to me quite clearly that ALL of the problems the Jews have today are the fault of the rabbis of today, particularly on the issue of aliyah. Secondly, I drive from Haifa to meet every few months with a Charedi rabbi, who is a good personal friend, for dinner at one of the best Chinese restaurant in Jerusalem. Ironically, his personal forte as a rabbi is the study of Jewish Eschatology from the sources (Zohar, Talmud, Tanahk, and writings of kabbalists). After making my usual snide comments about how study End of Days material on a daily basis does bring depression, we then started to talk about how it seems that with the brewing situation in Iran, the big bang called Gog U’Magog is almost upon us. (Personally, we both give it to Pesach if not next week during Purim for hell to break loose with Paras(Iran) triggering the War of Gog u’Magog.) I challenge you all to study the prophecies regarding the USA and the West and particularly for the future of the Jews there, which is not rosy (not that we won’t pass through hell here in Israel before Moshiah). Note that it is written in the Talmud that 80% of the Israelites who decided to stay in Egypt at the time of the Exodus died in the plague of darkness.….likewise it will be the same situation in the End of Days. That verse reverberated in my head when I read that 80% of American Jews voted Obama…….
    The point of this post is that 1) if a Jew has real emuna, is not materialistic, and is determined to make a successful aliyah, Israel can be a wonderful place to live; and 2) given the dynamics of anti-semitism of the world today, that all of the signs indicate the coming of Moshiah is imminent coupled with the prediction of collapse of the USA and its possible destruction (the 2008 stock market collapse was just the opening act), you will probably be forced to make aliyah for the sake of your own survival. The Breslov head in Israel, Rav Shalom Arush was quoted a year ago as saying that “Those who don’t come to Israel while they still can may be lucky to escape from the USA with a plastic bag and a pair of pajamas.”
    Shabbat Shalom

    • Wow..thanks M. I’ve always been curious about you. You have a very rich story about your life.

      Something you said about the USA…I have heard this also from the Pastor who does the weekly prophecy report…he feels that USA is NOT in prophecy and this is because it will be wiped out. I feel it could potentially be in prophecy in places, but unsure if it will be wiped out. A lo of people, in fact, feel USA will be destroyed. That sin and corruption, as well as God’s wrath, will destroy this great homosexual, baby killing, drunken, perverse, lustful, money oriented, greedy, fonrnicating idolatrous whore called the USA. Anymore details on that?? Thoughts?

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 God's call to the world! Are you ready?
