    6)Shalom Baadani-Riding his bike to Kosel in Jerusalem & hit by terrorist car-November 7 2014-17

    Do YOU remember these very recent tragedies?

    TEARS are rolling down my cheeks as I write this sad message R”L which could have been totally avoided.

    Look at their young ages & the ways they were Niftar. in such a short span of time. do YOU think this is coincidence? TIME FOR TESHUVA

    NO MORE SIGNS OF TRAGEDIES NEEDED FROM HASHEM if we all start teshuva NOW we won’t need any more of these tragic wake-up calls from Hashem

    May her neshama have an Aliya

  2. Many people talk about “Teshuva” but practically what does that mean?
    Perhaps I can suggest: Teshuva literally means “return” So many people are walking around mourning their children wishing they’d return. Well Hashem also mourns his children and wishes they’d return to him. Over 6 million Jews are living happy & fulfilling lives in EY and its time that the remaining 6 million or so JOIN the club. Hashem is waiting with open arms for us to RETURN to him literally. Don’t let the present day Meraglim attitudes confuse you either. Perhaps not only the Neshama needs an “Aliyah” but real live people need to consider Aliyah as well.

    As one who lives in eretz yisroel; I still feel I have way to go when it comes to teshuva. In no way does aliya make up for teshuva. Aderaba, the nisyonos are bigger here, the satan likes to get in the way of holiness. Yes, life is special here and I feel blessed that Im zoche of yishuv eretz yisroel/hakodesh. But lemmi tell you , in no way does that make up for the teshuva I or anyone else needs to do to bring moshiach.

  4. All agree that Aliyah wont make up for Teshuva. In the quest to understand the message that Hashem is telling us we are to look for the elephant in the room and THAT my friend is that what I was suggesting in Aliyah. Sure we all have nisyonos. Teshuva is part of life.
    p.s. The latest story happened at Alon Shvut
    v’shavti es “shvut” ami yisroel. Just sayin 🙂

  5. to Lakewoodcomment & everyone

    in yiddishkeit, if a person wants something (be it a livlihood, shidduch or child etc…) a person needs to do more then just daven & say tehillim, the person needs to also YEARN for it.-sadly- in today’s society we are living in, we are not YEARNING for the Bais Hamikdosh, we have everything from planes to cars & computers etc… even the gift of Shabbos for Gashmius to sleep & relax etc… HASHEM SAYS to klal yisroel, come back to me when your ready & ask me for something from your HEART & i will give you whatever you want (i’m sure if your child came to you for something you would get it, why wouldn’t you? the love between a parent & child is unlimited…. & that’s the way Hashem loves EACH & EVERY ONE OF US)

    All of us have heard, read & seen tons of true stories of people who had their first child at 42 or had a sick child in critical condition, & then the doctor says i’m very sorry but your daughter has only 3 hours to live & then he comes back 2 hours later & says its really a miracle but your child is beginning to recover etc…. Why is it that they finally had a child & the child recovered? There could be tons of answers, but the most common answer Is a Pasuk we say 3 times a day in Davening. Hashem is close to all who call to him, to all who call out truthfully. (Tehillim 145)Because they cried out from their heart, they really meant what they were saying when they davened to H-shem to have a baby or for his daughter to recover etc…. there’s a reason we call Hashem, Avinu She’bashamayim (our father in heaven) Hashem loves us from a father to a son & is waiting to put his Shchina (presence) & his bais hamikdosh back in this world. If we really cried out for the Bais Hamikdosh from our heart with truth & show that we are missing it, then we wouldn’t still be in Golus today.
