Dreaming of Moshiach

Wednesday, February 21, 2007


We woke up at 4:00 am on Gimmel Adar, 5767, and got ready for the big, spiritual day. 'Our plan' was to pray Shacharit by Devorah HaNevia, a'h, and then attempt again to find Esther HaMalka and Mordechai HaTzaddik, a'h.

We got to Devorah HaNevia, a'h, and the kids again insisted on 'burning the Esavs'. While they were doing their holy work, we were praying. This is the first time I merited to go in daylight and with daylight, it seemed like a whole different place. I checked out the area and found the tree that Reb Nati Shlita posted when he went to Kever Devorah HaNevia. The tree is totally hollow inside and only its exterior survived the Katyusha during Lebanon War II. I investigated some more and found the other half of the tree in a shape of a bull - Shor - with horns and this is the siman of Moshiach ben Yosef!!!

Suddenly we heard screaming and I thought maybe one of the kids got hurt. I quickly ran towards them and saw a strange man yelling and screaming at my kids. Turns out that their fire did not please him and being that he works for the National Park, he felt he had the right to scare the kids. When we explained that Devorah HaNevia and Barak ben Avinoam, zs'l, are buried here and the kids meant no harm, he yelled at us that we are crazy and this is a National Park with treasures of the Roman empire. 'Oy, the Klipa', was what we all thought when he yelled this nonesense, 'how are we going to succeed breaking the Klipa and build a proper Tzion for Devorah HaNevia?'.
We packed into the car and headed towards Bara'am. On the way, we found a treasure. A real treasure - the Kever of Nachman Chatufa, zs'l - he is also buried in Bara'am, he is the child of prophecy Nevuat HaYeled. Right away, we stopped the car to pray to HKB'H by his kever.

We continued on our way, and saw trees of Shkedia (Tree of Almonds) and stopped to pray Birkat HaIlanot.

We got to kevers of Esther HaMalka and Mordechai HaTzaddik, a'h. It's totally different during the daytime. The trail to their kever is about a kilometer in the PaRDeS but this time, it was much easier to find them. The whole trail is marked with blue paint and when we found them, there was a spiritual fire in the air, chasdei HaShem. We stayed for about 90 minutes, saying special Tefillot and before leaving, we lit candles for them. On the way back to the car, we found blue Tzizit strings...

We all had a big urge to go to Miron for the grand finale and visit Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, zs'l. Either it is a 10 minute drive from Esther HaMalka and Mordechai HaTzaddik, a'h, or we had a major Kfisat HaDerech (HaShem quickened the drive).
