GETTY100-year-old Jewish prophecy predicts eclipse will mark APOCALYPSE
In 1894, Rabbi Moses Israel Benjamin wrote a book called ‘Yalkut Moshe’ (Collection of Moses) in which he outlined his predictions for the end of the world.
The Rabbi predicted that when the Hebrew month of Elul – which occurs around August/September and lasts 29 days – begins with a solar eclipse then it is a sign of the end times.
A total solar eclipse took place on August 21 and was visible across the United States.
Eerily, another of Rabbi Benjamin’s has come true after he predicted a spate of natural disasters would take place in the wake of the solar eclipse.Related articles

In the last few weeks, Hurricanes Jose and Irma have wreaked havoc on the Americas while there have been several earthquakes, most notably the strong 8.2 tremor which struck Mexico on September 7, which add fuel to the Rabbi’s prophecy.
To top this off, the threat of nuclear war still looms over the population of the globe as North Korea continues to build its nuclear arsenal. Earlier this month Pyongyang tested a hydrogen bomb in its most powerful nuclear test to date.
In his 1894 work, Rabbi Benjamin wrote that when Elul begins with a solar eclipse: “It is a bad sign for the other nations, bringing great damage to the kings of the East, and bringing great storms and death to animals.”
