The haredi website anashnews.net cites a recent prediction by the mystic rabbi Haim Cohen, known as the “milkman,” regarding an imminent attack on Iran – by the Obama Administration. The 78-year-old rabbi, who teaches a Talmud class in the Beit Yosef synagogue in Givataim every Tuesday afternoon, told family members that this time “The United States will attack in Iran while Israel stays on the sideline, smiling.”
Part of a small group of ’60s mystics known for their vocations (Rabbi Moshe Rivikov “the shoemaker,” Rabbi Yehuda Ptilon, “the painter,” Rabbi Yosef Voltuch “the street cleaner”), the “milkman” does not wear a beard and covers his head with a simple cap. He served in the Army and worked in a local dairy.
