When it's already too late to relocate to safer environs, all that is left to do is to prepare to shelter in place. Acknowledging the dangers and making preparations in advance will increase your chances of survival.

Here is some good advice...

Prepare Your Homes And Neighborhoods For The Violence That Is Going To Sweep America

By Michael Snyder, on May 26th, 2015

The thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted on a daily basis is beginning to disappear, and a new era of chaos and anarchy is coming to our cities. ...What we have seen up until now is just the warm up act. The main event is still to come.

...For those that cannot move, you are just going to have to get prepared right where you are. That means making your home and your family as unattractive a target to potential criminals as you possibly can. The goal should be to avoid a violent confrontation if at all possible. So you will want multiple layers of security between you and those that would potentially harm you and your family. You want to try to deter the bad guys from ever coming on to your property in the first place, but if they do come, you need to be ready to deal with them.

At the moment, we are still in the midst of relatively stable economic times. But even in these relatively stable times, violence is escalating. Just consider what happened in Baltimore over the recent holiday weekend. A grand total of 29 people were shot…

Overall, this past month has been the deadliest month for Baltimore in 15 years.

Things are even worse in the city of Chicago. Over this past weekend, 55 people got shot…

Urban unrest expert Dr. Max Herman says that the United States is on the “cusp” of a wave of domestic disorder and that the country will see more race riots.
Herman, Assistant Professor of Sociology at New Jersey City University, told the New Republic’s Joel Gillin that the economic downturn, in addition to incidents of police brutality, have provided fertile conditions for civil unrest.
He sees the re-emergence of a 60’s-style “protest ideology” amongst black communities which will lead to more disorder.
“It’s very clear from studying history that these things tend to run in cycles,” said Herman, adding, “I think we are at the cusp of another cycle.”
Author Chris Hedges is saying similar things. The following comes from a recent article about him in the National Post…

The United States is primed for a rebellion. So argues Chris Hedges in his new book, Wages of Rebellion, in which the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and polemicist examines revolts from 1700s to the ending of apartheid in South Africa, as well as the “sublime madness” that drives the people at the centre of such rebellions.

...I didn’t write it as a warning or a prediction. I wrote it more as an assessment. I covered disintegrating societies like Yugoslavia. I know how they break down; I know what the warning signs are, so it’s familiar. I don’t think at this point there’s much dispute. Even just the financial indicators in terms of wealth disparity and chronic unemployment. The fact that Congress has a nine-per-cent approval rating. Where I’m coming from, the book is an attempt to explain where we are in this particular historical period.
...when violence starts sweeping this nation, don’t count on the government to come in and rescue you. After watching what happened in Ferguson and in Baltimore, you should know better than that by now.

It is time for the American people to prepare their own homes and their own neighborhoods for the chaos and the violence that is coming. 

For the moment, things are still relatively stable so we have a little bit of time to prepare, but it won’t last for long.

Read the whole thing here.

If American citizens are being advised to prepare, how much more so the Jewish communities! Find out what your local Jewish leaders, rabbis, synagogues and Jewish centers have planned as a contingency when the worst happens.

I'm expecting Tamuz - Av - Elul to be very volatile.

Natural Disasters Of "Biblical Proportions" Continue Around the World

8 Sivan 5775

Houston is my hometown. My sister says it has rained "every day for months" where she lives in East Texas and that the ground is so saturated it can't absorb any more. Right now her house is surrounded by a lake of water with no place to go. And the weatherman says there's no end of rain in sight.

'A madhouse': Rain hammers Houston as deadly storm moves east

Deluge.

That's the best way to describe the nightmare Houston residents woke up to Tuesday, after over 11 inches of rain fell in some spots overnight and into the next day -- inundating byways and highways, slowing first responders, knocking out power and generally bringing the southeast Texas metropolis to a standstill.

"The Jet Stream is stuck in place over the Southern U.S., has been for weeks – bringing up a record amount of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. This is an unusual weather pattern unlike anything we’ve ever seen before in the annals of meteorology. We’re seeing May rainfall totals across the Southern U.S., for which there is no previous precedent mentioned in recorded history." (Source)

...damage caused by flash floods in central Texas was “absolutely devastating” and had been caused by “relentless, tsunami-type power”. (Source)

13 dead after tornado strikes border city in Mexico

In six seconds, a tornado ripped through the border city of Ciudad Acuña, Mexico, with a ferocity that officials said hasn't been witnessed in more than 100 years.

At least 13 people were killed, including three children, Acuña Mayor Evaristo Lenin Perez said. Another 200 were injured.

Photos from the scene, which sits right across the border from Del Rio, Texas, showed cars blown upright, front bumper on the ground and leaning against homes. The twister flipped over school buses and damaged about 400 homes.

Officials said records don't show such a powerful tornado hitting the city in more than a century.

The storm system that spawned the deadly tornado is the same one whose rains have caused flooding in Central Texas.

52 dead in China floods

At least six other people are missing in floods that have ravaged mountain districts of six provinces and autonomous regions in central and southeastern China. More than a quarter-million people have been moved to temporary shelters, and major damage has been inflicted on buildings and crops.

Apart from the two schoolchildren, 42 others have died due to floods and heavy rains, including 16 in the collapse of a nine-story building in the city of Guiyang following a landslide.

Message from Menachem: "The War in Heaven Already Started"

7 Sivan 5775

[Be advised that this is my own translation; therefore, it may contain errors or unintentionally misrepresent the original in some way.]

BS"D     
Communication with Menachem
Iyyar 5775, published Erev Shavuot

"The War in Heaven Already Started"

I'm very excited, very excited. I don't know if you are feeling like me. I wake up at night in a panic, in the dark, like I'm closed inside a tomb, lo aleynu. I feel it's hard to breathe, I'm afraid, I'm so afraid. I'm not afraid for myself, I'm afraid for everyone, parents, children, adults, old people, what will they do?... What will they think when the big troubles which are impossible even to describe will start to descend?... It will be difficult also here in Israel, but not like abroad, because outside of Israel it will be destroyed, and here it will only be part, just a little, but it will be hard here. But, imagine what it is to see whole countries disappear, it's not easy even just to see it. And to think about all the people there, all the adults, and all the children, what are they thinking?... What are they thinking?... Yes, and all those who are in hospitals, and etc, I just worry, worry for Am Yisrael.

Truthfully, there aren't many Jews here now. The real Jews are few compared to the world population, and also few compared to the population of Jews, 'so-called Jews', but they're really the real Jews. And not one soul among them is going to be lost. And even if they appear distant - they will be close at the redemption. But, I can't tolerate the evilness that's everywhere, the hatred, all the crooked things, the war that they are conducting, Jews as well as gentiles, against HKB"H, shelo naida. And that's the thing that scares me most, because I know that every year throughout all the years since Adam HaRishon until today, the Satan wanted to fight against his and everyone's Creator, he wanted with all his powers to win, and to prove, chas v'shalom, that he is the Almighty, chalilah v'chas. But, that's the situation. And now he's sure that he's reached this level, because the most important people in the world, those who have the most say in the world, people who are so great, and rich, who are dictating, who think that they are the dictating, when there will be wars, when it will rain, when it will snow, when there will be a tornado or a hurricane, they think that they are in place of HKB"H, Hashem guard us and save us from them, but they will learn, they will learn the hard way. And the Satan himself - will disappear. Hashem will slaughter him, will finish him - and he will disappear! Hashem will take each slice from the Satan and throw each one in a different garbage can, and that will be the end [of him].

I'm afraid, I'm afraid the world will continue as it is this moment, because the world has turned into something ugly, ugly and crooked, and dirty, that it's hard to live in, it's hard to tolerate it. But, with all this - I'm afraid, and anyone who knows what's ahead of us - they are also afraid, because to look upon the destruction, to look upon dead people all around - it's very difficult. We're speaking about Jews, 'so-called Jews'. Indeed, there are those who it is clear that they are not Jews, that they are Erev Rav, but, there are those who will surprise us. And it will also be hard when we see little children who are going to be lost this way, shelo naida, the sight - difficult, it's difficult to see a person who has been killed, blood dripping from him, that part of his body is on one side and part on the other side. But, this we won't suffer, because it won't touch us. We'll see it - and it's hard either way, the difficult sights - it's hard. But, there's no choice, and it will be in just a little while. It will descend upon us very fast, at very high speed.

It's simply amazing to me how many people don't understand at all, it happens right next to them, and they understand nothing! They feel nothing! The evildoers intend to destroy us, the life and the faith in HKB"H, chas v'shalom, and we're not moving, not feeling, continuing life like nothing is happening. And in general, in the United States and Europe - they're completely 'in the clouds', they're continuing all the parties, the Jews, I'm speaking about Jews, they don't want to know, simply don't want to know. But, it's not just the Jews, but among the Jews, a high percentage of Jews - simply don't want to know. And even those who know - put it on the side and continue with the nonsense. What can I tell you, just to pray, just to pray for all Am Yisrael, that we will merit once and for all to receive our righteous Mashiach. I get very excited when I simply think about it, that Mashiach is really almost here, and we are really in the last generation. The last moments - it's us! About this generation we read and learned, and it's really - us, Baruch Hashem.

Q. It's written in the holy books that at the End of Days there will be strong heresy in the world, and it will influence even the tzadikim. My question is do we need to be more on guard? What do we do?

A. One needs to be more detached from the world, that is to say from the surrounding world, not from reality. We need to be realistic and not in dreams that do not exist. And clothing - it makes a very big partition, very big. And that's the main thing, but also the thoughts. There could be a person with a thousand clothes - and his thoughts are not good. We see Jews, with long beards, with long coats, that they, pardon me, are sleazy people, Hashem protect us. So, clothing isn't everything, because there are people who somehow even in the impurity remain pure, in thought as well as in behavior, so it's impossible to tell 100%. But, Hashem will save all these even though they weren't so clean from everything, all those who simply accepted Him as 'the Almighty', the Jews of course, the real Jews. But, we, it's better for us to suffer less if we are already now dressing modestly, behaving modestly and in holiness, in any case. And for a person there is always the yetzer-hara, so it's up to us to fight him, simply to fight him, to tell him 'get lost'!...  It doesn't interest me. And that's what we need to do. This is a war from morning-until-night and from night-until-morning, a situation of 'war all the time', and Hashem sees that we are fighting - and this will be the salvation.

Q. In light of what is happening in Yemen - many are saying that the War of GoguMagog is very close...

A. I say better: The War of GoguMagog already started. Did you know that several times they brought battleships and then took them back?!... Good, look, I don't know what to say. I do know one thing: It has begun. And it will get much more severe. And it will spread outside the Middle East. And then, also the Jews will begin to awaken, because then there will already be a war also inside America! That's right, it will be a war of brother-against-brother, that is to say gentile-against-gentile, Americans against Americans. [Civil war, just as the Riminover Rebbe said.] The army against the American people. And they have all kinds of Mexicans and Arabs, etc, who will be with the government. It will just get more and more severe. China hasn't gotten into it yet, and China is a very great danger to the world. The Russians are already in (meaning integrating into this program) and the Europeans are in, and Australia also, and all of these countries will be involved in the conflicts, some less, some more. And the biggest players are: China, Japan, Korea to a certain extent, all these countries, and also Russia, Europe, England, the US, and South America. And the United States will be among those that will be destroyed, not completely, but it will be destroyed. But Europe will really, really be destroyed. And you should know, all those like Roosevelt, and Hitler, and Mussolini, and Stalin, and perhaps also Churchill - they were together even though they supposedly fought against each other...

Did you know, there was one gentile named Pike, around the year 1870, he was one of the greats of the evildoers, and he wrote a plan that in the next century, that is in the 20th century, there would be three wars! And he described it exactly in every single detail - everything! Really described the wars, and what is the goal of each one of the wars, and that at the end it will be the war for complete control! It's like a kind of religion for them that pushes them, it's not particularly the money, etc, true money, too, everything that belongs to the material world - that's what drives them. They want to be in the place of HKB"H.

Q. At the moment there are expressions there that they want to discontinue the US managing the global economy...

A. In truth, do you know what they are doing there?!... How can we avoid talking about it?! They are really destroying the economy of America! He was sent to conquer America, the black man, he was sent precisely for this job. He's a fool, they tell him exactly what to do, and how to talk, and he does it, because that's how he was raised. His father was a big, famous, communist black man, and his mother was some kind of unfortunate white woman, also from a communistic family, and from the moment he was born - they prepared him for this, and specifically for him to be this crooked - it suits them. But, they do it as a joke on the world, they want to show that they are the rulers. It's not just sadists, it's beyond sadism, I don't know what it is.

Q. Why is there a tremendous feeling of tiredness?

A. I will explain. There's a war that already started, it started a long time ago.However, because we don't see bombs, Baruch Hashem, and we don't have ISIS, Baruch Hashem, we live more-or-less a regular life, so therefore, we're not conscious of it. But, our body does know. And we, the souls of course, know and feel it. And it also tires the body. Because what the soul knows - it tires the body. And we're simply feeling it hard, because there is a war. The war started first of all in Heaven. And it's really a war much more advanced than here. And it tires us, this war tires us very, very much.

And one more thing I want to say to you: Don't be weak, only strong. Even if you feel very, very down, everyone on your shoulders, but with all of this, with all the sadness there is, and with all the sad stories, and with all kinds of people we don't know, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel! A light so big, so pleasant, that we will feel that it was all worth it! And we will reach this light, and suddenly, we will see from where we came, we'll see the Garden of Eden as it once was, and where we are now, and we will forget everything that was in the middle. All the suffering that was in the middle.

"THE THREE DAYS OF HAGBALLAH"

2 Sivan 5775
Day 46 of the Omer


From An Overview of Shavuos Part II
by Rabbi Yair Hoffman for the Five Towns Jewish Times
(For the Refuah Shleimah of Boruch Zev Ben Bracha)

THE THREE DAYS OF HAGBALLAH

“The essence of these days,” according to the Shaar HaMelech, “is to separate ourselves from all the vanities of this world to be prepared to greet Hashem. In each and every year we should look at ourselves as if we are preparing ourselves for Kabalas HaTorah on the mountain of Sinai.”

The separation means to focus on things spiritual, and avoid an emphasis on aspects of the physical world that take us away from concentrating on Hashem and upon our relationship with Him. Our brachos should therefore be recited with more intensity and concentration, we should avoid unnecessary window shopping and looking at catalogues. Rather, our focus should be on three more important things: 1] improving on Davening, 2] on focusing more on the life lessons inherent in our Torah studies, and 3] upon Chessed. Each of these three brings us ever closer to Hashem Yisbarach.
