The exchange rate and mashiach

Rav Eliezer Berland is a very spiritual rabbi. He is the head of one of the major streams of Breslav Hassidim, and he is Rosh Yeshiva of the Shuvu Banim yeshiva in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Rav Berland, in this past weeks shiur, announced that the dollar, by the month of Cheshvan, would reach an exchange rate of 4.50 (back to about its original high a few months ago before it began freefalling).

This was announced in the past weeks Hashavua B'Yerushalayim newspaper, and has since been a topic of discussion..

I have no idea why the dollar is so important that he would make predictions about that, rather than predicitions like the various recent prophetic predictions about Mashiachs arrival or other issues, but so he predicted. Perhaps the exchange rate is somehow connected to Mashiachs arrival (note how the predicted date of both events are very close to each other)...

I also wonder if it does happen and the dollar does rise to a rate of 4.50, will the various tzedaka organizations still run their collections at the rate of 4:1 as they are doing now, or will they move back to the international market rate?

I guess if you are a follower of Rav Berland, you are going to be buying as many dollars as you can now and sticking them under your mattress...

  1. As someone who works for a firm in the states, I'm davening that he's right!

    Cheshvan is not so far off. When Mashiach does come, won't the rate be a moot point? Or would I still have to care about it?

  3. "Perhaps the exchange rate is somehow connected to Mashiachs arrival"...

    When currency value falls Jews are always blamed. Back in the 70's OPEC oil embargo(due to Israeli/Palestinian conflict) many blamed Jews. If the dollar plummets and banks continue to close, Jews will be blamed. It could get very uncomfortable for us in the diaspora especially if Obama gets elected President. Many of us in the galut do not want to move to Israel or aren't quite ready. But Hashem has a way of shaking us out of our complacency. Ultimately we will move whether we want to or not. We'll have to.

  4. I hate to say this but I think that this "Rav" is interested more in money then in the Final Redemption.

  5. I think there is a gematria here. something like "mben mashiach" = 450. So mashiach is coming in cheshvon... and he'll be raising the dollar at the same time.

  6. To the Jew that said the Rabbi Berland shlita is interested in money, I am telling you, you never met Rabbi Berland. If you saw him even once, from a distance, you would run to apologize in this blog, and then you would go to Rabbi Berland and beg his forgiveness.

  7. anonymous of 3:36am... why would you say that? I don't know what he was referring to. The article just said that part of what he said, so I do not know the context within which he said it, but why would you say that about a well respected rosh yeshiva such as Rav Berland?

    Please avoid slander and lashon ha'ra (especially when I write a nice positive post)

  8. Yes! The currency value is definitely connected to Moshiach.
    The dollar will rise just before the big fall. Then all goods will
    be in a run away inflationary mode
    for a short time.

  10. When the banks start to fail in droves, all accounts will be
    paid out up to $100,000., The
    cash available will be so great
    that all goods especially foodstufs
    will be in short supply, and the money will be like monopoly money before it will become confetti.

    Moshiach, the Number 8 and the Bird's Nest


    Ezekiel 30:15-16
    I will pour out My wrath upon Sin סין (China), the stronghold of
    Egypt...... I will set a fire in Egypt, Sin will tremble greatly...."

    Metzudas Dovid says that: "the city Sin will tremble** in an
    earthquake" (literally: "will quake in a quaking").

    The Bird's Nest stadium - the "Ken Tzipor" -
    The Zohar HaKadosh says "Moshiach's Neshama" is in a hall called היכל
    קן ציפור "Heichal Ken Tsippor", bird's nest (an allusion to the
    Shekinah). The Ohr Hachaim Hakodosh, zs'l, says that the Moshiach is
    also called Tsippor


    The Olympic Games, beginning on 8/8/08 at 8.08pm (the number 8 is
    the level of Moshiach), being held at the Bird's Nest Stadium, the Ken
    Tzipor....... the magnitude 8 earthquake occurring 88 days before
    8/8/08.... the total solar eclipse over China on Rosh Chodesh
    Av.......are incredible signs from Hashem that the Redemption is
    imminent..... and we should await the coming of Moshiach very soon,
    IY"H.

    blog is gone down the drain.
    2 possibilities:
    1) HKB'H does not want me to reveal all that will happen in
    the economy, now. OR
    2) More likely some one or group
    does not like what I say.

  15. The injection of cash into our economy by the Fed Res. will insure the trend from moderate inflation towards hyperinflation which is necessary for Mashiach to be revealed. Cost of foodstuf will eventually skyrocket, but we now have a temporary rerprieve.
    Iran now has backing of Russia for any missile attack, and is now being supplied.
