Baba Sali, dreams and Mashiach

Baba Baruch, Rav Baruch Abuchatzeira, the son of the Baba Sali, has given an interview to Bechadrei Chareidim to commemorate the Baba Sali's yahrtzeit.

The interview is pretty interesting as he describes some of the greatness of his father, and relates various stories his father was involved in. One part in particular stands out. Baba Baruch describes how his father has appeared to him at different times in dreams.

One such time was during Operation Cast Lead they did not know if they should plan a hilula in honor of the Baba Sali's yahrtzeit. The Baba Sali is buried in Netivot and that was within range of the Grad missiles being shot into Israel at the time. To bring thousands of people to Netivot for a hilula seemed irresponsible. Baba Baruch says that the Baba Sali came to him in a dream and told him to prepare the hilula and he would take care of the rest. The next day he got word that they had agreed to cease fire.

Baba Baruch then says that the Baba Sali appeared to him in a dream less than 2 weeks ago. In this dream the Baba Sali told him that Mashiach will come this year, and that we should prepare and be prepared for his arrival.

Halevai it should come true!


  1. Baba Sali zt"l was a huge tzaddik and did the most amazing things. I recommend everyone to read a book about him. However, much as I would love to believe this latest revelation, I guess I'm a cynic at heart, and think that perhaps Baba Sali told Baba Baruch that Moshiach could come this year and the people should prepare. Sounds more logical, especially in an interview for chaderei chareidim.

  2. very interesting, looking forward what ever day or month or year :)

  3. vilna gaon was right moshiach rosh chodesh nissian

  4. what a great story. May Moshiach come this year!

  5. In this dream the Baba Sali told him that Mashiach will come this year, and that we should prepare and be prepared for his arrival.

    Baruch Hashem! And I can't wait.


  6. lokks like it will start byb purim

  7. B"H it's pretty stupid to look for a date that Moshiach is coming, though I feel the same anticipation for redemption. I poshut don't have koachh anymore to explain this, but each and everyone of us has the power to live moshiach right now, live life like the Rashbi, and this is called "opening our eyes". moshiach770.org

  8. Actually as Baba Sali and others predicted Moshiach did indeed arrive in 5771, but he has not yet declared himself openly. Each person needs to recognize Moshiach for himself. This may not be that easy, since he will appear as an ordinary man, still incognito, until most people acknowledge him. The way to recognize him is thru his words or the message that he brings - the message of peace, brotherhood and justice. See http://www.moshiachishere.org/

  9. 9 years later and... The good rabbi was talking bobkes, what a surprise. NOT!
