September, 2015: Economic Doomsday for the USA?

Expected economic meltdown
For the past three years, I have been telling anyone who listens to me to liquidate investments in the USA and to invest in real estate in Israel. Those who heeded my words made a lot of money, for the closer we get to Moshiach, the more Israeli real estate skyrockets.

The American economic bubble is about to burst. Today, the USA has a national debt of $18.5 trillion, and it is expected to become nearly $21.5 trillion buy the end of 2015. Things don't look so good for the land of baseball and apple pie. The USA can't even pay the interest on their debt, much less the principal.

Several of my good friends in the USA argue with me. They cite the oil prices, which have been cut in half in recent months. They cite the dollar, which has strengthened against other currencies. They cite Wall Street indexes, which are at an all-time high.

My response is dump your investments immediately, before the bubble bursts, especially the money you have invested in the stock market. Why?

This coming September 13, 2015, marks the end of the Shmitta, or Sabbatical Year. It is a time of abundance in the Land of Israel, especially for those who observed the laws of Shmitta, but a traditional time of economic catastrophe in the USA. Modern-day Kabbalists consider the USA as today's Rome; the Gemara tells us that when Jerusalem is up, Rome is down and vice versa.

An established pattern according to Rabbinical Law - what's known in Hebrew as a chazaka - is three consecutive times. The fact that the American economy has nose-dived at the termination of the Shemitta year is more than an established pattern. Let's see what happened at the termination of previous Shemitta years, the end of the seven-year cycle in the Hebrew calendar:

2008: Stock market collapse, mortgage crisis, bank collapse - Sept. 29

2001: Stock market collapse, 9/11 attack - Sept. 11

1994: Bond collapse - more than $1 trillion loss to bondholders

1987: Black Monday, stock market crash, October 19

We can go back even further and mention the 1980 Silver panic and stock market crash, the 1973 oil embargo when oil prices quadrupled and more, and the 1966 stock market collapse. Enough said?

The only thing that is better than investing in the Land of Emuna is to bring your family and to come here. Thank goodness, I don't have money invested in Wall Street (I don't even own a car for that matter, but nothing can rob me of my spiritual assets), but if I did, I'd be liquidating as quickly as possible. Don't say that you weren't warned. Meanwhile, you have my blessing to find a beautiful condo for you and your family here in our holy homeland of Israel.

You should stress this in Bold: The Dow Jones Indus. Avg., the most well known stock index in world history fell on the 29th of Elul 5768, on the very last day of that Shmittah or 7th year, an astounding 777.7 points which was a 7% drop in that esteemed index.

Also consider that and global preparation and provocation..coupled with unprecedented military buildup and asset deployment across the US at this time ... this is the twilight zone.

As Chairperson of Afsi Brooklyn, I would like to hold a meeting or series of meetings asap in my house to advise tachlis re: IRA's or investments, assets etc. in case of a dollar crash before end of Shemittah cycle. If you know of trustworthy individuals, people whom you can vouch for, that can advise us re: investments in Israel, either in real estate or otherwise that would protect peoples lifesavings and assets in case of a $ bust please let me know asap faigerayzel@gmail.com. (I am a blogger, check out shemittahrediscovered.blogspot.com) I will do my best to spread the word. The clientelle here in Marine Park Brooklyn, are basically ehrlich, middle class families with high tuitions and mortgages and sometimes car payments and perhaps would consider investing in real estate in Israel if affordable and there needs to be someone who can manage their investments (renting, maintenance, in their physical absence) I myself made Aliya and bought an apt in Kiryat ARba in 1980 which cost me less than $20,000 including lawyer's fee. It was the best investment of my lifetime even though at the moment I live in Brooklyn. Perhaps also people might consider buying burial plots in EY. TY and KT


The "Messianic Rabbi"/Pastor who invented this concept does not have an adequate answer to the following question. Perhaps you do:
Why would a non-Jewish country have anything at all to do with Shmitta and the Torah calendar?


Itzik the world goes by the Jewish calendar, all over the world


It is very irresponsible to make such doomsday claims,not being a prophet. And misleading people who want to build Eretz Israel in N.America. The debt of Deutsche Bank is $ 57 trill,more than USA..So it is also a bubble. Remember it is a fiat money and governments get creative to avoid their disaster zones.
Scare tactics to serve your agenda based on false or misleading indicators are not a responsible way to detach people from their welfare and jobs.

Isaac; people reacted the very same way when my maternal grandfather & Zeev Jabotinsky forewarned of the holocaust. Halevai that more had heeded there "scare tactics"....
Stay there in your comfy home while we "poor silly fools" live in our Holy Land.

Yaakov Bonastruc Saporta Nahmanidjes

The entire world is owned & operated by the same Lord Creator who is our Big Boss, HaShem. The entire world goes by HIS calendar which is what we recognise live by, even without them realising it, just like an severe autistic or CP person is fed cared for, has electric lighting or not even though he has no idea why & how.

I think this says it all

YK, Israel

I pulled my money from the States 3 years ago and invested everything in Eretz Yisrael. No regrets!

I would add a caveat for anyone who wants to invest in Eretz Yisrael - invest in kosher funds. These are funds that have been certified by Eida Chareidit to follow halacha. Generally, investment brokers in Israel will go for the most profitable funds and not consider halacha. There are investment advisors who are knowledgable about kosher funds and can work with your tax preparer to guide you. In addition, Eida Chareidit has a rav (from the States) who can answer specific questions. When you invest in HaShem's land according to HaShem's laws, you invite blessing on your investments.

But, as Rav Brody wrote, don't just send your investments here - bring yourself also!

Isaac, it is not a scare tactic. It is reality. It is a wakeup call to SAVE LIVES. There are those who have worked in big Finance. They have seen how very bad it is. Numbers do not lie. When things go financially wrong, who gets blamed? History repeating itself is not a scare tactic but reality.

Without spiritual awareness, everything looks fine. No need to worry says the one in a spiritual stupor.

I had read the history of all the changes that happened before Nazi Germany opened up the floodgates. The signs were there but many thought it could never happen in the most progressive, civilized nation at that time.

Bless Rav Lazer Brody for blowing the Shofar on this issue.

A Jew in the Holy land

Yashar koach YK,Israel. I was unaware that there are "kosher funds". Investing in Eretz Yisrael is a great merit that will pay dividends in both worlds!


Thank you, Lazer Beam. I have read your book about Emuna.
