Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura FEMA CAMP, POLICE STATE

I've been avoiding politics lately, mainly because I am convinced we have already passed the point of no return. This video series is very good however so I figured its worth sharing here. Nothing new in them, but sometimes a reminder is good.

Note that there is a strong pro-Ron Paul sentiment to these videos. As a worshiper of HaShem and a follower of Rebbe Y'shua I strongly reject Ron Paul and his anti-Semitic views. I therefore do not support this aspect of the videos. Otherwise however they are good and accurate according to my research.

Are you ready for what's coming?

Service Schedule Time Changes

Shalom all,

Due to timing considerations expressed by various people Temple Beth HaShem and its various ministries have decided to change our broadcast times.

Shabbat of course always begins approximately 18 minutes before sunset on Fridays local time. During the winter months this often means around 4:30 PM and in the summer sunset is often late into the evening. This makes sharing in services difficult, especially with many of people living on both US coasts and beyond.

These changes are intended to make communications and sharing between us easier. Our websites and blogs will be updated to reflect these changes as soon as possible. Your thoughts on these changes are sincerely invited. They are as follows:

Congregation Beth HaTikvah

Hakham Yochanan ben Zalman of our Congregation Beth HaTikvah in Yardley, PA has announced that their broadcast Shabbat services will now take place at 7 PM EASTERN time each week (they will be lighting their candles as Shabbat begins regardless of broadcast time). Their live broadcasts can be viewed here:
Once our Temple Beth HaShem website is back online these broadcasts will also be available here:

Temple Beth HaShem

Temple Beth HaShem is now in its new home in Fort Bragg, CA. The new temple and gift shop are NOW located at:

Temple Beth HaShem
474 South Franklin
Fort Bragg, CA 95437

The first service in their new location will be held tonight at 7 PM. Rebbe Larry plans to light the Shabbat candles according to the service time (so around 7:10 pm) and thus will be lighting the candles during the broadcast year round. Because the internet is not yet hooked up there Rebbe Larry will not be able to broadcast from there tonight. Since the internet is not yet available at the new shul, Rabbi Yochanan will be presenting the Beth HaShem service live at 7 PM PACIFIC tonight. All future Shabbat services from Temple Beth HaShem will be at 7 PM Pacific.

As soon as we can manage it, the Temple Beth HaShem Shabbat service will be broadcast live from the Fort Bragg shul and offered by Rebbe Larry Levine. These Shabbat services can be watched live here: at UStream or live on our website: (once the website is back online)

Once Rebbe Larry resumes the regular Shabbat service there we at Beth Yachad plan to join his service via the Net rather than offer a separate service from here.

Congregation Beth Yachad

We at Beth Yachad (in Yankee Hill, CA) will be broadcasting the weekly Parsha readings every Saturday at 11 AM Pacific as well as our ongoing prophecy series at 1 PM Pacific.

To watch the Parsha reading:
And our site:

To watch and/or read the Prophecy Study:
or at:

"What Matters Most" with Rabbi Yochanan will continue at 5:30 PM Pacific time. It can be viewed here:

If you have any thoughts or questions about the new schedule please share them with us. We are trying to make things more consistent and more readily available for you.

We're Back Home... Temple Website Hacked... Obladee Oblahdah...

We're back home (Oroville area California) now.

The trip was wonderful in more ways than we can express! We met with several of the yeshiva talmidim (students) and other friends and family members all across the US from Northern Ca to Rochester, NY to Yardley, PA, Pigeon Forge, NC, to Atlanta, GA, down into Ormond Beach and western Florida, to Dothan, Al and Dallas, Tx... . We performed weddings, conversion rites, an ordination, spoke to several people in various settings and more.... We exalted in the splendor of HaShem's creations as we experienced the sheer might of Niagara Falls, the awesome beauty of the Great Smokies, the swamps, rivers and people of the Southeast.... Oy! Such a blessing!

Over the next few days I hope to add the rest of the videos and photos not yet uploaded to our trip page as well as a bit description to put them into context:

We do have one difficulty however. The best I can figure is that a hacker has managed to take over the web site NAME. It currently has an alt page (that is not of our choosing!). I have spoken with the group that now controls our domain name (we don't now how they gained control of it!) and they have assured me this matter will be resolved soon. Please join with us in prayer to this end! and were not hacked and remain secure. All of the files for the temple website are safe and will be restored asap. This was an attack on our domain name not on our web server. Once I regain control of the name I will transfer it to a dependable host (where all the others were... Rebbe had paid for this name well into the future and so when I came on the scene I saw no reason for move it and loose that money... Now I do... not all name servers are honest nor professional. Thanks for your patience on this. We hope to resolve this within a day or two.

NOTE: Rebbe Larry and Hakham Leah are recovering nicely from their auto accident. They plan to sign the papers on the new shul and bookstore (in Fort Bragg, CA) on Wednesday and begin local services shortly thereafter. Hakham Ahuva and I will be remaining in this area (Orville-Chico-Paradise-Yankee Hill-Concow) for now at least. Those wishing to assist Rebbe with the new temple and gift shop may contact him by mail at:

Temple Beth HaShem
32200 space 25 North Harbor Dr.
Fort Bragg, CA. 95437

Please Be in Prayer: Our brother (Rebbe's dear son) Froim may have to go in for surgery soon. As many of you know, Froim is severely disabled. Carefully placed rods in his body enable him to walk and apparently one of these snapped after Froim took a fall recently. Rebbe told me you can feel the broken rod under his skin. Please be in prayer for Froim. He is a man overflowing with love and goodness and we pray for HaShem's mercy to be upon him.

Those who have yet to receive replies from me, thanks for your patience. I hope to be caught up completely within a few days. Feel free to write and confirm that I am aware of your issues etc. In such situations things are sometimes lost.

May HaShem bless you all in the upcoming week!

Shabbat service woes...

The internet was strong until broadcast time, then it suddenly died. We experience this at home as home.
We apologize we were not able to air however with HaShem's blessings we will post both the conversion and Shabbat service, along with the parsha reading, after returning home later this week.

Trip Update: HaShem had other plans...

We're still at Florida Caverns State park....

As we were pulling out this morning the truck started coughing and spitting. We didn't what was up... so we returned to the campground, figuring that HaShem had something new for us here (or that a major repair was coming). We asked the rangers here for a mechanic recommend and went where they said: RoadMart. We explained our problem to Adam, one of the mechanics, and soon he returned with the info. A spark plug wire had come undone somehow! That was it. We asked what we owed them and they said Nothing! Ya'll have a great vacation! Baruch HaShem! Other than the Daytona Beach Boardwalk parking garage (see last entry) everyone we've encountered here in Florida have been great. Now sure why HaShem wanted us here for another night... there are many possibilities (maybe we would have been in an accident, maybe gotten stuck if the truck had died, maybe we're supposed to meet someone... who can say. What we can say is Baruch HaShem! AND thank all of you who have been praying on out behalf. We have a couple of weeks left on this trip and you continuing prayers are certainly requested and appreciated.

Unless HaShem has other plans, we expect to leave here again in the morning and drive to Dallas.

Shalom and thanks to everyone.
