Appearance on the Tamar Yonah Show

Updated: a second time on Feb. 18th with renewed link to the show

I appeared on the Tamar Yonah show on Arutz-7 on mms://msmedia.a7.org/arutz7/shows/English-show/Special-shows/7_02_06-DovBarLeib.mp3 on Tuesday morning, February 7th, 2006 to speak about a variety of subjects relating to the "End of Days". I was on at 7 am local time here in Israel. Listen to the tape now that the show has aired.The link to Sefer Eliyahu that I referenced on the show is as follows:
http://www.religiousstudies.uncc.edu/jcreeves/sefer_elijah.htm
It is a full English translation of the medrash. It includes the distinct dates for the political earthquake which founded the Kadima party on the 20th of Marcheshvan, 5766. It also includes the date for the beginning of Operation Moses and Operation Joshua which brought over 8000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel starting on the 26th of Marcheshvan, 5745 (1984). Operation Joshua followed on the heels of Operation Moses after about 1000 Ehiopian Jews had languished in the Sudanese desert for one month with little food or water. Four thousand had perished in the trek from Gondar Province in Ethiopia, and another 200 perished while waiting for rescue in the Sudanese desert which took the remaining 800 out in Operation Joshua. The earlier Exodus of seventeen thousand Jews from the same place in Ethiopia along the River Sambatyon (Blue Nile tributary) on the 25th of Tishrei is still a mystery. I or someone else for that matter, can do some more research to figure out when this event historically occurred. This could be a reference to a nearby community such as the one in Yemen. Or it may refer to an Exodus of Jews that has not yet ocurred, for although Operation Moses is numbered third, the medrash indicates that the numbering scheme is based on the date of arrival in the countries of their exile. As the medrash says, "The first group of exiles will not leave Babylon until the second group arrives there...."

Sefer Eliahu also says Kaf Adar, Moshiach will come. If this is the year, March 20 (monday) is the day which is 8 days before elections.

The only problem with assigning this year, 5766, to the fulfillment of that medrash is that the Sefer says the same thing in two different ways under two different sets of circumstances for the 20th of Shvat and the 20th of Elul. A medrash like this can best be understood only in hindsight. We can only pray fervently that one of these three dates occurs this year. Boy do we need it.

I heard on the radio the other day that a group from Rockville, Maryland was sending sefers and other educational items to African Jews. I wish I remembered where they were in Africa.

These Jews were forced to convert hundreds of years ago but were still precticing Judaism.

Maybe these Jews could be the ones that will make their exodus and enter our Holy Land in the future?

I'm sorry Dov. You know how I greatly admire your gift of learning. That you share it with all of us is true Tzedaka. Think of what I am about to state as me being in a self appointed role of one riding shotgun.

You seem to have made a claim here. Your claim being that Operation Moses and Joshuah in our days are what Sefer Eliyahu is specifically talking about. How many times prior in Jewish history have Jews migrated by the thousands in three different waves?

The text uses "earth will quake" and you interpret that phrase as meaning a "political earthquake."

Plus several names are provided and you select one and reverse it to align with the iterim PM's name.

It is not that I doubt that Moshiach's arrival is imminent. Nor do I deny that your highly interpretational reading of Sefer Eliyahu is possibly correct. And I believe that I and most of your fans want Moshiach as bad as you do.

We seem to have developed a band of believers here whose premises include that Gog is Bush, Moshiach comes after Sharon falls, Olmert (or Perez)is Armelus, the Pekidah began in either one year or another and the result is a speculation "society" based upon all the above presumptions without one irrefutable proof that any of the presumptions is undeniably true.

We Jews have been connecting Midrashic Moshiach-related dots to current events for millenia. Judaism is flooded with failed keitzim predicters using just such methods.

So again I respectfully ask you...What do we have on the table before us (in the cold light of day) and which is ojective proof (and not influenced by wanting, interpretations or Faith) that we can point to and say that "This irrefutably proves that Moshiach is 3 hours, 6 months, 1 year or two years away?"

Can anyone enlighten me what/who is the Bartieh d'Yaakov (I'm reading that as the daughter of Jacob) mentioned in Zohar 119a? I'm sort of striking out on my own research on the subject. Perhaps I'm misreading the term or missing something else obvious. Either way I'd like some input. Thanks!

Judaism is NOT racism!
--------------------
Shalom Dov: Thanks for the material. I have been closely following the earthquakes, and I don't think that we are going to need to rely on mere political ones! I could go back and try to match the dates up with events, but I am pretty certain that we are looking for an earthquake which cannot be ignored!
------------------------------
Re: Sharon - NOT Jewish - per You.
---------------------------
Since the "Ariel Sharon" thread seems to be fading into the background (amazing technique?!), yet many gentiles are at our heels, seeking status as up and coming new "Israelites", new "Hebrews" etc., etc., it is important that we get some closure on his status, and the ramifications.
In LeDavid you posted that Sharon was not Jewish, and stated that the Tefillin status is resolved by the fact that Sharon's sons are. It is an interesting theory.
It seems that as we have not found any record that Sharon was Jewish; and there is a growing record that he is/was not, we are not able to assume he is a Jew and must assume that he is a gentile. We must all agree, that, as Sharon's mother was not a born Jew; and did not convert; that he also was not.
Some have argued she converted, but again, no record has been produced, and for sure nothing on home observance of Judaism. Thus, had she gone through some actions towards convertion, yet failed to keep the laws afterwards, it would be invalid, and Sharon would be a non-Jew still.
My question to you is this: How should we deal with people who call positions such as "yours", which is actually simple, straight forward, Normative Orthodox Judaism - "racist"?
This wacky accusation is being made often, and I am hoping that those who respect you will agree to stop making this wild accusation. Thanks Elisheva

To the Good People at your Website,

Hello from the Great Southern Land of Australia.

We are living in the prophesied times described by Isaiah, Ezekial, Jeremiah and others. Creation is like a vast mosaic, made up of many, many pieces.

Throughout history, some of these pieces come down and are revealed for all to see. Great innovations, inventions, ideas and the like are some of these pieces. G-d gives us these gifts, and he tests us to see what we do with them. If we misuse his gifts, he gets very angry. We collectively reap what we individually sow.

The way through the coming days, weeks and months is with prayer, vigilance and right action.

We are living in truly momentous times.

Sincerely

Adam Neira

I heard it, Dov. You did a great job. Yasher koach! And thanks for sharing your insights with us. I hang on every word.

I daresay, since redemption dawns on the Holy Land first, those in chu"l, being in the darkness that is Egypt, are having a tough time making out what's really going on.

Reasons to believe these are indeed the End of Days:

1. Israel is regathered, almost a majority in EY.

2. After further and further gains, the process appears to be reversing itself; however, this is to fool the SA and his minions just before they fall for good.

3. Rabbi Winston says the actions at Amona are proof that at the soul level the klippot know their days are numbered and they are giving it everything they have trying to hang on. (They are so going down!)

4. In the natural realm, if redemption doesn't come, Israel will be destroyed and that's not gonna happen.

5. Both the xians and muslims are predicting the End of Days and the president of Iran plans to bring on Armageddon to jump start it.

The whole world that has any connection to spirituality at all, knows in the depths of their souls that THIS IS IT. (Whether it's this year or next, the energy is there.)

6. All the rabbis in EY who count are in agreement on this.]

Rabbi Yess..... your comment sounds exactly like the comments of my friends. My friends are Lubavitchers... who spent years and years yelling for Moshiach, but now they have lapsed into a nothing-ness..... they cannot see the woods for the trees.
It's time for Lubavitchers to start yelling for Moshiach again.... and to wake up and realise that we are living in amazing times.
PS (I am not talking about ALL Lubavitchers... just quite a lot that I know, who have taken on the attitude that "well, if the Rebbe isn't Moshiach, then no-one else can be".

Shalom to everyone.

Unable to even stay focused on the issues my last post raised, unable to provide 1 iota of solid proof that Bush is indeed Gog etc...anonymous above goes on a personal/communal belittlement attack campaign imagining all Lubos being void of what only he alone possesses. [No arrogance nor self- infatuation there, mind you.]

Well I am not really surprised. I hope you are real comfortable with your imagined superior personal beliefs status. I am glad you have zero doubts about what is happening presently. Far from me to want to question your unassailable conclusions.

What you sadly lack, however, is what my post addresses. A solid basis built upon facts...not highly selected midrashim to fit current events.

One can knit a net of midrashim or pesukim that fit almost any situation. The Xians did that with Isaiah 53. Such a knit does not equal truth, however.

So when you finally come to the point where your Messianic fervor or inebriation gets a little low on fuel...and you decide to make an honest account of what is factually before us...my question will still exist. And you, being unable to answer it directly and honestly with irrefutable facts, stand with empty hands and a lot of wishes and dreams posing as truths about this Pesach or next being when Moshaich arrives.

So hurl all the insults or belittlements you desire. All you accomplish thereby is to avoid answering a fair and honest question. When you are able to provide some factual substance for what you believe...then you will have a basis for what you perceive to be happening. Until that point all you have is Messianic hysteria.

And by the way..the phrase is "...forest for the trees"...not "...woods for the trees."

Moshe Yess, as long as there is still free-will in the world, there will always be room for doubt as you so ably demonstrate. It is not possible to do what you ask, to prove these things at this point. If it were, then free-will would no longer exist and you would lose the opportunity to gain merit for your faith.

To anonymous directly above.

I draw your attention to this, please:-

When it comes to believing in Moshiach we indeed have free will. Some Jews don't believe. I certainly do believe. So there is one case of free will.

That the positive Prophecies will occur is a matter of Halacha...not free will. The positive Prophecies must and will be manifest by Hashem. So states Rambam.

If, as you stated:- "It is not possible to do what you ask, to prove these things at this point" is true...(and I entirely believe your statement to be true)...then we have no factual basis whatsoever for making claims presently regarding what are but mere interpretive speculations about Gog being Bush (and the like) and then going out to the world and claiming that such interprative speculations are a fact of Torah...or worse- a Prophecy fulfilled.

I, for one, find that jump -from speculation to assumed fact- to be highly irresponsible management of Torah dissemination in Olam Hazeh.

False Messianic movements and Messianic hysteria is born of such recklessness. Not good for Jews...nor anyone else.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof(s).

My point is not related to the merit of having Faith in Moshiach. Neither is my point related to free will. My point addresses the sole issue of erroneously portraying and calling an interpretive speculation a certainty or fact.

Since the Industrial Revolution events have been adding up... and comparing those events to our Moshiach-related Prophecies seems to indicate (and strongly so) that we are rapidly reaching a climax. However in the blink of an eye those present similarities can vanish, Heaven forefend. And then you have a bunch of Torah Sages with egg on their faces and a whole lot of dejected Jews who won't believe in anything anymore.

Responsible duty to Torah demands that we tone down the natural tendency to hysterics of Messianic anticipation and get a real sober grip on what is factual, proveable truth and what is otherwise.

In prior centuries Jews were so certain that they were witnessing the arrival of Moshiach in their days that they sold their homes and businesses for pennies on the dollar and danced in the streets. No generation suffered like that of Shabbatai Tzvi in terms of later shattered Faith.

Things are very tense in the world presently and moreso in Eretz Yisroel. Tension seeks remedy. This entire matter of Moshiach prediction is like a lit match next to a tank of hi-octane gas.

And lest you think that upon Moshiach's arrival all will be immediately good forever thereafter...I draw you to the attack of Amalek which occurred after the splitting of the Yam Suf.

The speculations/interpretations are exciting and serve a positive purpose...but the present situation (precisely for its seeming potential to being the real deal) now demands very sure-footed, sober steps regarding the evaluation and publicizing of what is occurring presently... based solely upon facts...not Faith or interpretations alone. Else we end up putting a stumbling block before the blind.

Yes, Nechama, I am watching the store. It is just that I can only do a clean up job once a day at the most. There have been a flood of posts, Baruch HaShem, on this site since the radio interview. I have been busy this week with other projects. Baruch HaShem, keep posting.

I request from Mr. Bowman not to use my blogspot to proselytize about Yesu (Jesus) and to quote the New Testament. I left one of your comments standing from the previous post "The Man Who Met Mashiach", because there you did not quote the New Testament. Nor did you tell us that Yesu was the man about whom the prophets were writing. Obviously, most of what you quoted, dealt with the coming of Mashiach or the Man who could have been Mashiach, Chizkiyahu, King of Yehudah. In no way do any of these prophets presuppose to be speaking about your man from Nazareth. I respect that you have those beliefs. Find a forum other than this one to express them. You are welcome to comment on this forum about the times in which we are living, and how it is ripe for the commencement of the Messianic Era. I respectfully request that everyone keep their opinions about who G-d's chosen annointed is until he reaches a status of Chezkat Mashiach. This is the status where we can presuppose that someone may be Mashiach, but he has not yet completed his job.

Secondly, to Shimon Peres, I never said that you were Armelus. The Targum Yonatan seemed to indicate that you were Armolgus, a close spiritual relative to Armelus, coming from the camp of the Leftists. Armelus, Olmert or more likely Sharon, is from the camp of the Erev Rav right-wingers who joined up with the Erev Rav leftists to form the Kadima Party. Rabbi Israel Solomon in his book about the Erev Rav describes in detail the two spiritual poles represented by the two sons of Bilaam and their spiritual progeny Armelus and Armolgus. He also has a 40 minute discussion on the gogumogog.com website about the evacuation from Gush Katif which fully explains these two Erev Rav poles as explained by the Targum Yonatan. I believe that the medrash on Shemot (Exodus) on the Sin of the Golden Calf calls them Ionus and Lambros. Interestingly enough, one of them got 2/3 of the gold while the other got 1/3 of the gold for the purpose of performing their sorcery. It is hard to guess which one is which. I suspect that Sharon and Peres were the gilgulim of the sons of Bilaam. Now that one of them is brain dead, Olmert has arisen as the gilgul of Bila'am himself. This is just a suspicion at this time. Time will show if my hunch is correct.

I will answer Luis David, Reb Moshe Yess, and a few of the other anonymous commenters' questions, bli neder, before I retire on Motzei Shabbat (Sat. night Israel time). I may yet get to my responses tonight. Please be patient, and keep posting!

Maybe you missed it, but it has been reiterated over and over again here that this is nothing more than speculation and nothing is being stated as fact. It was already stated that it can't be proved so how is that calling it "fact?"

Past errors wrt false messianism stemmed from those who wanted to proclaim one individual to be Mashiach before his time. I leave it to you to understand who then is more dangerous to Jewry at this time. I know of no one losing faith because many rabbanim said for a very long time that Russia would be Gog or Germany would be Gog. And in their times, they certainly were. And Bush is in our times. If, G-d forbid, things are drawn out, could someone else end up being the actual Gog at the time of Mashiach, certainly! But none of this threatens anyone's olam haba. If it does, such an individual is too unstable to learn Torah at all and would best be kept away from a computer. Those who want to make distortions are going to do so whether you give them a reason or not.

Those of us who come here to read and discuss should be free to do so without some holier-than-thou coming along and preaching to us about how misguided we are. That remains to be seen.

There is a heck of a lot of evidence for a belief that Bush is Gog. At this point in history, there is absolutely no doubt that he is the potential Gog as all our sources tell us that Gog will be the leader of Western Civilization. Now that doesn't mean that if this thing is drawn out longer, America may fall and Russia rise again and take that place just as many previous rabbanim said would be the case. We have an obligation to understand the times in which we live and while anticipating redemption at any moment, it is appropriate to attempt to discern where the leading players are. If all of this discussion and speculation increases anticipation and makes it more real to us on a daily basis, then there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Those you can should not be denied because some can't. If it bothers you, go away and don't read anymore. You've made your point. You've given your warning and those who will heed it will heed it and those who reject it won't. Nothing more to say on the subject.

Sorry, everyone for the longwindedness. The last time some high-minded know-it-all came along and complained like this, Dov quit sharing his thoughts openly and I don't want that to happen again.

(From the book Shamati by Kabbalist Y. Ashlag)

Our sages said this about the verse, “Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! Wherefore would ye have the day of the Lord? It is darkness, and not light” (Amos 5): “A parable about a rooster and a bat that were awaiting the light. The rooster said to the bat: ‘I await the light for the light is mine; but you, what need have you for light?’” (Sanhedrin 98). The interpretation is that since the bat has no eyes to see, what does it gain from the sunlight? On the contrary, for one who has no eyes, the sunlight only darkens more.

Shalom R'Dov, I must admit that I am little confused as to the policy on your blog. In the past (a few months ago) I think that there may have been some kind of argument or something and as I rembmer it, at that time you had asked people to refrain from using your blog to publicize their belief in the Rebbe of Lubavitch as Moshiach Ben David.

I hope that you have noticed that since that time I have been making a special effort to respect your rule.

However, today as I read through the new comments I noticed that you had asked your readers to please refrain from identifying anyone as Moshiach until he has achieved the level of "chezkas Moshiach".

So my dilemna is that on the one hand I do not want to disregard your previous request from months ago, while on the other hand, for the sake of Emes, it is very difficult for me to refrain from pointing out that according to many hundreds of Rabbonim, the Rebbe has indeed achieved the halachic status of chezkas Moshiach.

In light of the above, may I now be permitted to present my perspective on this issue on your blog (since it has a foundation in halacha) - or does your previous request still apply (in which case, we are only allowed to identify someone as Moshiach once he has achieved 'chezkas Moshiach' aside from the Lubavitcher Rebbe)?

Armilus will kill Moshiach ben Yosef.

Kahanists bring sources that Moshiach ben Yosef can be a Cohen.

Interestingly if Olmert is this Armilus fellow, Olmert was the evil lawyer-MK who was appointed by the Israeli establishment to find legal ways to prevent Kahane (who was a Cohen) from getting 8-12 seats in the 1988 elections. He succeeded ie Kahane was thwarted in his mission - Moshiach ben Yosef was "killed" by Olmert-Armilus!

To the person who wrote that Mashiach ben Yosef can be a Kohen, and that Kahane was MBY, I believe now that you are correct. It all makes sense now. Armilus did kill Mashiach ben Yosef after all. He did it over 18 years ago by banning him from the Knesset. He destroyed the purpose of his life.

Yes, MBY can be a Kohen. The gene of malkhut for the children of Rachel is through the X chromosome not the Y chromosome. Witness, the daughters of Tzelafkhad from the children of Menashe. We learn the laws of inheritance for women from them. Witness Dariyavush son of Esther who permitted the completion of the 2nd Temple. I believe Yeshayahu the prophet calls Dariyavush calls him Mashiach or annointed. Yet, his father was Achashverosh (Xerxes), a non-Jew. Yet, because his mother was from the tribe of Binyamin, he received the chromosome to be Mashiach from his mother. Finally, we need to understand that MBY will be a decendent of Yehoshua bin Nun. Of course Yehoshua only was priveleged to have daughters. Obviously, the chromosome of Kingship through Yehoshua was through the X chromosome. On this issue the Kahanists are correct. Apparently, Armilus did "kill" MBY of the previous generation. The medrash about Armilus and MBY is apparently historically correct.

To anonymous above.

My website post at www.rabbiyess.com does not state "ALL OF JUDAISM.." My post states "JUDAISM..."

I trust you will acknowlege that Chabad is Judaism?

More importantly...in Parshas Shoftim the Rebbe openly and beyond doubt identified himself as a Novi. Here's the link:-

http://www.sichosinenglish.org/books/sichos-in-english/49/20.htm

Furthermore, using his unique style of speaking, the Rebbe identified himself as Moshiach Tzidkeinu. The Halacha is that a Novi, giving over a positive Prophecy (Immediately to the Redemption! Behold! There! Moshiach approaches!) must be believed and obeyed (by all of K'lal Yisroel.)

There was no vote, no consensus, no committee decisions when Moshe Rabbeinu came to take the Yidden out of Mitzrayaim. The true and demonstrably proven Prophet is the strongest piece on the Torah "chessboard" second only to Hashem...in terms of authority.

The "Moshe" of the generation is equal to all of the geneation according to Rashi. So when the Rebbe speaks then Judaism -in its entirety- is authoritativly being spoken for. The Rebbe gave approbation to the many, many Rabbeim who signed the psak din that the Rebbe is bechezkas Moshiach.

So it is not myself speaking for all of Judaism....it is the Rebbe who authoritatively did and does so...in spite of appearances to the contrary which is another issue entirely.

TO A STORY ABOUT THE CHANGE OF THE CONSTITUTION IN ISRAEL. FROM ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS.

Does no one find this interesting that Olmert wants to have a 7 year budget, the EU also has a 7 yr budget and the book of Daniel says that the future Israeli / Arab peace treaty will be 7 years. Is no one connecting the dots. and about this new constituition, I think they might call it a covenant somehow, in Daniel 9:27 also the dictator signs the covenant of peace for 7 yrs, I thought this would be the Jerusalem covenant, but now Israel might change their constitution to a covenant to fulfill the prophecy of Daniel 9:27 I think.

A question regarding claims made in the comments here. I would be grateful if anyone could provide links to show/illustrate that indeed
1. Olmert was instrumental in banning Meir Kahane H"YD.
2. Kahanists claim that Meir Kahane was MBY.

Thanks in advance.

So many posts and reactions.
That was a sensitive material.
Messiah is not coming but he went back, he left waiting to long for people to wake up.
I dont know if they are still sleeping yet, but the truth is that the one to come and wait for is not Moshiach but those who sleep, people are not here yet...
Will they be in Nissan? Maybe.Depends on them.People are not come to the reality yet,that's all.Moshiach waited enough...
