One Minute to Redemption

Some time ago, Israel's channel 2 journalist Uri Revach interviewed Rav Mekubal Mordechai Eliyahu Shlita about the 2 watches he received from the Baba Sali, zs'l. "I'm careful not to touch the watches", says the Rav, "I don't open the watches, I am afraid to open it. It is placed in a safe location. When the watches read 12:00... Moshiach is coming. The watches have a mind of their own - sometimes moving and then stopping. The gold watch is placed underneath the silver watch. Silver is Rachamim (mercy) and gold is Din (judgment). I want the mercy to control the judgment and HKB'H will speed up the Geula."

The Rav also received the Baba Sali's robe with specific instructions that this robe should be worn to greet Moshiach Tzidkenu. This strengthens redemption believers that Moshiach is very very close, within the lifetime of Rav Mordechai Eliyahu Shlita.

Over the years the hands on the watches have moved and it now stands at 11:59, a minute before the coming of Moshiach.
