A noted Kabbalist arrived at the office of the head of the Republican party in Israel this week with the express purpose of reassuring him that in heaven, the matter has already been decided: Donald Trump will be elected to serve as the next President of the United States.
Though Marc Zell, the chairman of Republicans Overseas Israel, is religious, he has limited knowledge of Kabbalah (mysticism), so he was very surprised when a noted kabbalist (mystic) contacted him last Sunday, saying he needed to speak to him concerning the upcoming elections in America.
The kabbalist, from the city of Bnei Brak, is well known in Israel, but insisted on remaining anonymous in the press. He arrived at Zell’s office in Jerusalem with his entourage in the early evening. Zell did not know what to expect, but was open to anything the rabbi had to say.
“There are things in this world we just don’t understand,” Zell told Breaking Israel News. “I figured this might be one of them.”
In his meeting with Zell, the rabbi stated emphatically, “Donald Trump will win the election and be the next president of the United States.” The rabbi assured him this would be a very good thing for Israel and the United States.
Though Zell was delighted to hear the unequivocal message, he remained skeptical and insisted on knowing the reason for the kabbalist being so sure.
The kabbalist answered, “This is what I do. This is what my family has done for generations. To us, this is clear.”
The kabbalist had one request: please pass this message on to the Trump campaign.
The next day, two large boxes arrived at Zell’s office. The kabbalist had sent him two sets of the Zohar, the foundational work in the literature of Jewish mysticism, that contained his family’s interpretation of the esoteric books. One set is now in Zell’s library, but the other may very well sit on a shelf in the Oval Office in the near future.
Zell forwarded this message to religious Jewish leaders of Trump’s campaign. They were enthusiastic when they heard the powerful message from the Holy Land, and were strengthened by the spiritual reassurance, said Zell.
In fact, Zell has noted that the many religious Jews have rallied behind Trump in recent weeks.
“It was not always the case, but many rabbis and religious leaders have come out in support of Trump, telling their followers to support the Republican candidate,” said Zell. “They realize that Trump is the candidate that will defend Jerusalem, Israel, and the Jews.”
Zell believes that Trump’s promise to move the American embassy to Jerusalem has much to do with that.
“Trump comes from outside the political establishment,” noted Zell. “He will do what he says, and he said he will bring the embassy to Jerusalem, what every other president has vetoed.”
Hadrei Haredim, an ultra-Orthodox news site, reported that Rabbi Sraya Deblitzky, one of the great Halachic (Torah law) authorities of the generation has been urging all his followers to vote for Trump.
In addition, Rabbi Mendel Kessin, an internationally recognized Torah scholar and head of several charitable institutions, also put his support behind Trump, referring to the Republican candidate as the Messiah of the Biblical nation of Edom. Rabbi Kessin also said that voting for Clinton showed a lack of “mercy on your children”.
