The Ukrainian 2 State Solution

Since the Vav was added to HaShem's Name in the world with the 72nd anniversary of the Wannsee Conference on the 2nd Shevat 5774, we have been watching a slow process unfold in the Ukraine.  It picked up speed in the Crimea on Purim and during Nissan it went into overdrive in the eastern provinces of the Ukraine.  G-d has a way of dishing out nekamah at the End of Days.  And so it begins.  There is a referendum in two of the most southeastern provinces in the Ukraine today.  The chaos will likely spiral out of control from this point onward.  Russia will be "forced" to back those who held the referendum to break away from Kiev, and Kiev will be forced to suppress the rebellion in full.  G-d has a 2 State Solution planned for the Ukraine as punishment on the nations of the world who have been trying to force a two state solution on Israel for the last 66 1/2 years, with a really concerted effort since Madrid in 1992.

I am leaving from Spain tomorrow night where I had to be at a mandatory family get-together.  Gibraltar was really wonderful, with a Jewish community at least 250 to 300 years old, for Shabbat.  The rest of Spain is spiritually dead, just like the Spanish wanted.  This is a short post because we are busily preparing to leave.  I leave Madrid at 11pm tomorrow night.  Perhaps I should turn off the lights.

On a different subject, the National Football League, St. Louis Rams, have drafted the first openly gay man. Thoughts on this considering HaShem is specific about this subject?

Dear Reb Dov (and any family who are with you),

Here's praying that you have a hazarath tisa (or whatever the modern Hebrew phrase is for return flight) tovah uvatuha. My guess is that by the time this post will be submitted, you will have taken off.

May I ask how a dyed-in-the-wool Ashkenazi can have relatives in Spain? It must be a fascinating story!

Back to topic: One of the more interesting things about the Ukraine-Russia conflict is the anti-Semitic response it is eliciting from American non-Jews!

See just the comment section to this article from Bloomberg News, 18 April 2014 if you want proof:

Ukrainian Jews Seek Extra Security After Anti-Semitic Incident

"...names will never hurt me..."

That's how every attempt to eliminate our people started. American Jews, watch out!

PS I heard @Russia is economically hurting; doesn't really want western Ukraine, so will not invade. @China is only getting stronger and more aggressive (dominate) toward the "islands" in her area.

Here are the two things that I verily believe with almost 100% certainty:

1. The nations of the world will try to send troops to divide Yerushalayim and the rest of Eretz Yisrael by next Pesach.

2. The fiat currency system in the world will collapse by the end of the Shmittah year 5775. All debts will be erased at that time except one's debts to Heaven. The Malkhut that is in Malkhut Yovel Cycle starting in 5776 (the 49th one since Ezra HaSofer) will begin with a clean slate. Mashiach ben David should show up at that point, but this last point can't be said with 100 percent accuracy. According to both the Alter Rebbe of Lubavitch and the Vilna Gaon, 5775 is the keitz bitah Achishena. Not often do the giants in the Litwak and Chassidic worlds agree on much. So I will take it to the bank. By the way the Alter Rebbe bases it on the 1775 shekels of silver, above the 300,000 shekels of silver all from Machtzit HaShekel, that were collected for the Mishkan are added to the year 4000. That silver was used for the hooks, the hoops, and the head caps for the posts in the courtyard of the Mishkan. It mefarnessed the world for 1775 years after the year 4000. The parnassah for Olam HaZeh will come abruptly to an end by the end of this coming Shmittah year.

Everything else is timing. I will write more about my trip to Spain in a bit.

The other 300,000 shekels (100 kikar) of silver were used for the Adanim underneath the posts for the "heichel" for the Mishkan. Yet, the parnassah for Olam HaZeh comes from the silver in the outer courtyard. All this is in Parshat Pekudei.

According to the Chessed L'Avraham, in the year 5760 the world was immersed in a mikveh from which it emerged at the end of that year. According to our sources, when that occurred the entire world went up one level of qedushah in preparation for the coming of Mashiach. The Holy of Holies became the Holy of Holy of Holies. The Heichal and the Mizbeach (Ezrat Kohanim) became like the Holy of Holies. Ezrat Yisrael and the Ezrat HaNashim (all within the Chiel) became like the Ezrat Kohanim and the Heichal. The entire Temple Mt. became like the Ezrat HaNashim within the Chiel. Yerushalayim became like the Temple Mt. Eretz Yisrael became like Yerushalayim. And the entire planet became like Eretz Yisrael. This has many consequences. For one, the Third Temple will therefore cover the entire Temple Mt. It will be much bigger than the first two Temples. Yechezkel in his later chapters describes a massive structure where the Holy of Holies is in the center and where places of lesser holiness are in concentric squares or rectangles around the Holy of Holies. The Al Aqsa mosque whose Intifada was mamash at the close of year 5760 would therefore be within the Ezrat HaNashim of the Third Temple. What that means for ascending at this time, well, you can talk to Moshe Feiglin about that. Another effect was that much of the hashkafah that was normally confined to Eretz Yisrael went global at the end of 5760 (Fall 2000). So there have been two major wealth extinctions at the ends of the last two Shmittah cycles (Fall of 2001 and Fall of 2008). The one coming at the end of 5775 will dwarf those previous two brought about by the bubble collapse and 9/11/2001 and the financial collapse of 2008.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Correction: The concentric squares are actually around the Outer Mizbeach simply because of the geography of the Temple Mt., where the Even Shtiyah is close to the western edge of the Temple Mt. So the Holy of Holies would still be there. The Heichal would still extend toward the center of the Mt. with the Outer Mizbeach in the center.

Anon.: No, the Geulah is supposed to begin in year 7 with the Great, Final War. Bed David shows up in year 8. So it is in Motzei Shmittah when Ben David shows up. Yet, the Geulah has already begun with the final Gog UMagog War in the Shmittah year. This is why the 7th bracha of Shmonah Esrei is Go'el Yisrael so that the War in year 7 will bring the Geulah at that time before Ben David shows up in year 8.

Also, according to Rav Chaim Vital zt"l, Ben David shows up at Sha'ar Nun, the Gateway to the 50th. The 50th year is always the 8th year too, except that the 50th year is also a Yovel year. This is the case in 5776 on two counts. It is the 50th year (or the first year of the next cycle) of the 48th Yovel cycle starting with Ezra HaSofer. It is also the 50th year since the year of the 6 Day War when Yerushalayim was unified in 5727 including that year. 5727 was the first year of both its Shmitah cycle and the 48th Yovel cycle. Since all that happened to Yosef has happened to Tzion, the 50th year of the reunification of Yerushalayim will be a really big deal. Mashiach shows up at the Gateway to that year means that he shows up at the beginning of the 50th year, 5776, probably on Yom Kippur to proclaim liberty throughout the land to all the inhabitants thereof. We need a Liberty Bell where we change the 1 to a 5.

Also Rav Yehudah HaChassid of Regensburg gave us a unique exciting insight. He had a visitation from Eliyahu HaNavi at the beginning of the 13th Century. He was told that there would be a total of ten 50 year cycles at the end of which ben David would come. The first 50 year cycle would begin with the Ottoman Turks conquering Yerushalayim. They would rule Yerushalayim for 8x50 years, for 400 years exactly. This occurred from 1517 until 1917. Then in the 9th 50 year cycle, Yerushalayim would "lie hefker" for 50 years. From 1917 until 1948, Yerushalayim was part of the British Mandate on a temporary basis. The British had no intention to rule it forever. The fact that in the end they did not want to give us Yerushalayim is their problem, not ours. May they be finally judged for that and for closing the gate to E. Yisrael just before the Shoah, Amein. Then from 1948 until 1967 there was a strip down the middle of Yerushalayim which was called hefker or No Man's Land. So for exactly 50 years Yerushalayim lay hefker. Then in the tenth 50 year cycle Yerushalayim would be under Jewish sovereignty, and Ben David would show up at the end of that cycle. Yehudah HaChassid was told this by Eliyahu HaNavi 800 years ago. The 50th year even according to this is 5776. My wife suggested that perhaps that is the secret of the name Yinon which means the "tenth 50th" based on what Rav Yehudah haChassid of Regensburg was told.

Devash: 5727 was the first year of the Yesod that is in Malkhut Yovel cycle. 5726 had been a Shmittah year. 5727 was NOT year 0 of the Shmittah or Yovel cycles. So one counts the years starting with 5727 being year 1, 5728 being year 2, etc. 5774 being year 48, 5775 being year 49, and 5776 being year 50 and the first year of the Malkhut that is in Malkhut Yovel cycle unless it turns out that 5776 is mamash a Yovel year.

5/16/2014 1:43 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Think of 5727 being the Motzei Shmittah year helps one see it as year 1 and not year 0. This is also a problem with counting the years since Bri'at Adam, and the Cheit of Adam HaRishon. He sinned on Rosh HaShana of Year 1 not Year 0. So even though it is the year 5774, only 5773 full years have passed since the Cheit. The same goes with counting Shmittah and Yovel cycles. There are NO year Zeros.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

So although 5776 IS the 50th year, 50 full years will have passed at the beginning of 5777. Yet, Sha'ar Nun is the beginning of the 50th year not the end of that year.

I think that the confusion comes down because the first day of Pesach is like Day 0 of Sefirat HaOmer so that when we count the days after the first day, those are the number of days after Yetziat Mitzraim on the First day of Pesach. There is no parallel when counting the years of a Yovel cycle or when counting Yovel cycles.

I was just told that this govt. is destroying Givat Assaf. I am in mourning again. Perhaps I should close down this blog until either something good happens or until G-d definitely begins to destroy this evil world, for men have made it as evil as it is going to get.

Another issue is that of how we will handle the land during the upcoming Shmittah year. Not that my words are expected to reach leading rabbis for serious consideration - but if by some miracle they would, they should know that there is compelling reason to do away with the "heter mehira" and consider really leaving the land to lie fallow all next year, with no temporary arrangements. From A-7:

Who Are the Syrian Rebels - And Are They a Threat to Israel?

As Syria's civil war enters its 4th year, Arutz Sheva presents the first in a series investigating the implications for Israel's security.

If we implement "heter mehira" the way we did in the past, any Muslims we seal deals with are highly likely to have ties with the Syrian rebel groups mentioned in the article; and then would HaShem be obligated to protect us from them?

In addition, I imagine Xians would also want to take part in getting Jewish permission to work the land for a year knowing they own it for the year. Who says they'd be willing to return it once the year's over? And again, if we give it to them, what makes us sure HaShem would protect us from any shenanigans they'd like to pull?

I hope the rabbis would take these issues seriously. Maybe there will be a discussion between opposing sides as to how to handle keeping the commandment seriously this coming Shmittah year.

Will they leave us in the most vulnerable position we have been in a long time...or will they refuse to leave our farmlands in the "safekeeping" of the hands of our enemies? Will we have the learning, the emunah and the bitahon to demand to perform the mitzvah strictly?

Stay tuned...

I just came inside from the official govt. and Rabbanut sanctioned non-Motzei Shabbat Bar-Leib 33rd day of the Omer bonfire. So let's get down to some business. Don't sell your fields this year to non-Jews! You are not allowed to sell land in Eretz Yisrael to non-Jews even if they are righteous gentiles even for one minute. How much the more so are you not to do it for one year. Note: Righteous gentiles can own land here that they have purchased from other righteous gentiles in E. Yisrael, but Jews can't sell their land to them...ever. So when you "mafkir" your field or your orchard, make it ownerless by turning over you field or orchard to the Otzar Beit Din. They will hire workers to pick the crops that don't belong to you anyway. If you have a couple of trees like we do, you can water fruit trees as normal even if the fruit is not yours for one year. Other trees and grasses should get minimal amounts of water just to keep them from dying of thirst. No plowing or planting or pruning or harvesting. Pick what you need for about a week. Put a sign at the entrance to your property inviting others to pick from what is not your trees for one full year. Note: Many tree fruits are still 6th year fruits if going into Rosh HaShana 5775 the fruit has reached 1/3 of its final size. This is especially true with olive trees whose fruit is usually picked during Cheshvan. All vegetables and grains are hefker (ownerless) from Rosh HaShana 5775 until Rosh HaShana 5776. Get a good book on the Sabbatical year in Eretz Yisrael, and then take a Sabbatical from worrying about your garden.

I went to Spain because one of my sister's husband was on a 3 yr. tour of duty at the Rota Naval base near Cadiz. The other sister came in from South Florida. We had not been together for four years, and odds are, the next time we see each other is when Mashiach comes....

So I have no Spanish Jewish blood in me. The situation in Spain for Jewish history is truly depressing. Gibraltar is an exception because of its unique history as a British outpost at the entrance to the Mediterranean for the last 300 years. Jewish life in southern Spain is almost non-existent. There are a couple of kosher butchers in Malaga and a small community on the Moroccan coast in a place called Ceuta. A large chunk of the Jews in Ceuta now live in Gibraltar. I hear that there is a significant Jewish community in Barcelona, but that is on the other side of the country.

Indeed, why "sell" your land to ANY gentile. That was the point. Xians are in place in towns like Yitzhar already, helping with the grape harvest annually for the last several years, I understand. Many Jewish farmers have been obeying their rabbis when doing "heter mehira" which means "permissible sale" to local Arabs. That is why I'm addressing the rabbis rather than the farmers.

It was a big, big issue "back in the day" - the penalty for violation is EXILE. The source for the Talmud commentary stating this is Leviticus (Vayikra) 26-34-35, 43, from Parashath Behuqotai, which we just read. (I got this past bit from the article "For the Sin of Abandoning the Sabbatical Laws..." by Rav Azriel Ariel from my Machon Meir Behuqotai flyer, which is translated into at least 4 languages.)

NOTE: My first year of aliyah was 5768, the last shmittah year - we arrived a week early, 21 Elul. This year, my husband is attending shiurim on the subject near the Mahane Yehuda shuk. The book they are using is called Sod haAretz (in Hebrew); the teacher, Yechiel Spira, is a kashruth expert who has the website Jerusalem Kosher News. (My husband hasn't figured out whether he's a rabbi or not.) So we are getting prepared. This class has both men and women and is every Sunday night (erev Sheni). More details if anyone's seriously interested.

Reb Dov, I have a question that won't wait: can we save the qedusha-laden peelings and make compost out of them for mixing with the soil of farms the following year (or whatever year it becomes permissible again)?

You can use fruit and vegetable peelings from Shmittah year fruit for compost only after they have decayed enough in your special shmittah husks and peelings trash can so that you could normally then throw them away in the dumpster. Until the peelings have decayed sufficiently, even the peels have the sanctity of the 7th year.

Keep in mind though that many, many fruit picked in the Sh'mittah year from trees are 6th year fruit obligated in Ma'aser Ani (tithe to the poor). After tithing to the Levi'im and to the poor, you can dispose of 6th year fruit anyway that you want. The problem for these fruits from fruit trees only shows up if they reach one third of their size in year 7. Then they are Shmittah fruit often picked in year 8. From a practical perspective, this applies to olives and some citrus fruit. Are oranges included in this? I will have to check.

5/19/2014 11:42 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

The dates listed for Sabbatical sanctity (qedushat Shevi'it) in most Shmittah guides applies mainly to fruit bought in stores. So pomegranates for instance ripen after Rosh Chodesh Av. So any pomegranates bought in stores after Rosh Chodesh Av 5775 will have qedushat shevi'it until Rosh Chodesh Av 5776. Starting at that time, pomegranates that appear in stores were grown after the Shmittah year had already concluded. If one has one's own garden, one knows that figs ripen in Tammuz and in Av and pomegranates ripen in Av and in Elul. All these fruits that grew in the Shmittah year are therefore picked in the Shmittah year and have qedushat shevi'it. Olives which ripen in Cheshvan of the Shmitah year are 6th year fruits because they basically reach full size before Rosh HaShana 5775. The olives which ripen in Cheshvan 5776 will be Shmittah fruit. When one buys fruit in stores, one should be far more careful. Avoid Heter Mechirah fruit of course. Otzar Beit Din fruit and vegetables are the best. If one needs to buy fruit from Arabs, buy from Chutz LaAretz where there is no qedushat Shvi'it. I try to avoid buying fruit from my enemies here who may or may not want to kill me. Remember though, that vegetables picked the day after Rosh HaShana is over in September 5775 (2014) already have qedushat shevi'it even if this does not apply to tree fruits!!

Grains are complicated. Oat, spelt, and rye are not grown here and therefore rarely have qedushat shevi'it. Wheat and barley ARE grown in Eretz Yisrael. Yet, not all wheat and barley products use wheat and barley from Eretz Yisrael. One has to check the packaging for clearly marked indicators to know whether something should be purchased. Raw wheat and flour is easier since the growing season in Yisrael is the winter wheat crop. So all wheat until next Pesach are from 6th year wheat supplies. One thing to know about now: Do not plant any fruit trees starting on Tu B'Av in three months time in general. If the tree being planted has abundant soil that it is being planted with, one can plant it up until and including the 29th of Av 5774. Plus prune now if you have not done so already. Pruning fruit trees during Shmittah is a Torah prohibition and is absolutely forbidden. And pruning of non-fruit trees should also be avoided if it is possible. Plus pruning is one of those things that can and should be done in advance anyway. Don't wait until the last minute!

Part of the problem is that after the re-election of Obama, the tachlis no longer exists. America cannot be saved any longer, and that was Beck's tachlis. Its last chance was Rick St. Iram or Michelle Bachmann. St. Iram won a few states, but Mr. Beauty Mitt Romney lost to Mr. Moral Substance St. Iram. The rest is history, and so is America. In two years time Mashiach will have to go in there and gather up the pieces.

Insight of Shmittah for the night: Why do fruit trees need an extra thirty days to sit in the ground when planted before the Shmittah year in addition to the 14 extra days needed to take root? The answer is the first Orlah year cannot be the Shmittah year. In order to count a year for orlah where fruit cannot be picked from fruit trees for the first three years, the first year must last at least 30 days. So, in order to count the 6th year as the first year, the fruit tree must take root at least 30 days before Rosh HaShana. Taking root for trees whose roots are exposed takes an additional 14 days, meaning that all fruit trees which are planted with their roots exposed must be planted by the 15th of Av before the Shmittah year. Then the tree will take root by the end of the 29th of Av, and the first year of orlah for the new tree will be the 6th year and not the 7th year when nothing can be planted in that year.

How many Jews have died throughout world history over the last 2000 years for the mortal sin of "Desecration of the host?"

Or as Tom Lehrer called it, "If it is, try playing it safer. Drink the wine and chew the wafer. 2, 4, 6, 8, time to transubstantiate!"

Yea, and that was another thing about my trip to Spain. My sister, who speaks Spanish fluently, has my nephew enrolled in public school there during her husband's three year tour of duty at Rota Naval Base, where they opt out of Catholicism classes. But many of his friends are Catholic. What can you expect? Well apparently in Spain they turned the Lusty month of May Day (May 1st) into a day where all ten year olds take communion for the first time, all because of the stupid room over King David's tomb. So all of his friends threw parties that night. lehavdil, like a Bar Mitzvah.

Ah, but on the same day that the Poop arrives, there is an election due north (tzafon) of Eretz Yisrael, a presidential election, in the Ukraine, a country which became infamous for murdering and raping Jews for "desecrating the wafer". Sorry, had to point this out. As your End of Days correspondent, I am paid (sic) for letting you know when wild coincidences take place.

I think if I were to investigate this matter hard enough, I would find Medieval Xtian accusations of how the desecration of the host (the body of Yoshke) corresponds to an attack against the foreskin (the orlah) from Brit Milah since the Pesach Seder DOES compare the blood of Brit Milah to the blood of the korban Pesach. Xtians think that Yoshke WAS the korban Pesach. There, right there, is a connection to Yesod, and its needed final tikun. Some of these accusations are rather ghastly.

Here is one such accusation:

Ah, it just occurred to me that many of you are still in the minor Sefirah mourning period and can't listen to music until the 4th of Siwan. Sorry about that. The Bar-Leibs ended their mourning period on Lag b'Omer. My sympathies to those who are still in mourning well into Siwan.

Also here is a nice description of the various blood libels and host desecration libels that took place in the Middle Ages. Host Desecration libels seem to have ended with the Protestant Reformation since Protestants don't believe in transubstantiation of wafers. Blood libels continue even unto today. But it should be noted, the leader of the Protestant world is NOT the one who is showing up next Sunday. So the tikun can take place on schedule....however it unfolds.

From Tzvi Fishman's blog:

On the phrase that Amalek was karcha baDerekh by murdering the stragglers: Rashi says that "karcha" should be understood as keri (as in the Ba'al Kerry), meaning seminal pollution. Rashi explains that Amalek lured the Jews into homosexual transgression, then cut off their "milot," the sign of their circumcision, and threw them up to the sky, as if to say, "This is what's left of Your holy nation." Rashi concludes that the protective Clouds of Glory spit out these Jews who were feeble because of their sexual sins. These were the Jews whom Amalek killed.

And this: The "Sfat Emet" explains that Amalek's principal goal in going to war against Israel was to banish sexual purity from the world, represented by the brit milah. This is why they cast the sign of the circumcision into the air. The brit milah is considered the seal of G-d, stamping the Jewish People with the Name of G-d. The nation of Amalek represents the spirit of evil in the world, the impure orlah, the husk that prevents the light of G-d from entering the world. This explains why the Name of G-d cannot be fully revealed in the world until Amalek is obliterated. By fighting against the sexual purity of Israel, Amalek damages the Brit, returning the orlah to its place, and causing G-d's Name to depart from the world ("Sfat Emet," Parshat Zachor, Year 5664).

In the language of the Kabbalah the word "derech" is associated with the sefirah of the Yesod (Arizal, "Likutei Torah," Toldot, Ch.3). As we have mentioned on many occasions, the Yesod parallels the Brit in man, the spiritual channel that brings Divine blessing into the world. The word "derech" is also an aphorism for sexual relations. "Karcha baderech" thus means damaging the Yesod through sexual transgression.

The Ba'al Kerry recently met with this Pope to find a way to trip up Klal Yisrael. Kerry's claim to fame? When he was running for President of the US, Massachusetts just so happened to become the first state in the US to grant ketubot to homosexuals. Then he meets with the former Cardinal BerGOGlio when Pieces talks are failing. Watch out, those wafers represent both the korban Pesach and the orlot of Brit Milah. I can't prove the latter, but with John Kerry involved....

Your elucidation of "Karcha baDerech" (KbD) explains what is happening in America and Israel (to a milder degree). Excellent expose. The 'force' behind KbD is turning the US inside out, and persecution and arrests are the norm now. They are indoctrinating little children into the perversions. So, so sad.

If the Rabbis in Frum circles know these Torah sources, and some look the other way ... Isn't this incriminating? Some influenced by amalek.

There is something about this poop that rubs me the wrong way. His PR escapades seem so hypocritical (to me). Now he might land in Bethlehem as a pronouncement! And 60 communions (a yr) above David's room! That would invalidate any shachris davening on those 60 days! Can't be done in same bldg.

It is an attempt by the Church of Edom to establish an iron partition above Malkhut, King David's tomb so that our prayers can't be heard. The only way to ascend to the Malkhut of Ben David is through Yesod. What Edom does not understand is that prayers in Hebrew don't require angels to carry the prayers to Atzilut. So the fact that angels can be bound in chains of iron (because iron is impervious to the nuclear Strong force and that force emanates from Olam HaBeri'ah which I spoke about earlier) does not prevent our prayers from ascending to Shamayim. But placing a church above the tomb will for all practical purposes prevent prayers at the tomb from taking place.

That would thereby treif up the davening underneath. Jews won't be praying in the same bldg. with avodah zarah going on upstairs. Listen, I don't know the Poop's schedule. He is going to be traveling in Bethlehem with no security and in Jewish areas with bulletproof limos? Then he will lift the 3rd cup of wine, the one that corresponds to the Vav in HaShem's Name and cry out, "This is my blood?" The only way this won't be an unmitigated disaster will be if G-d says NO!

This has kept the Yud Key and the Vav Key in HaShem's Name effectively separate for 2000 years....just as the Ba'al Kerry and other Amalekites would like it.

I am mulling over in my mind whether or not to allow a comment by Shiloh on the blog, just received. He talks about Yoshke being MB Yosef with his true purpose being perverted by both Rabbinic Judaism and, to a greater extent, Pauline Xtianity. And that the room underneath the Last Supper Room was really a 1st Century church where Jews who believed that Yoshke was MB Yosef worshiped. He calls them Netzarim as opposed to Notzrim. It might lead to a heated debate, but I am wondering if it would detract from the topic at hand. I am actually excited about the next couple of days for different reasons than Shiloh is. But we need to remain focused.

I must say Shiloh, it does make sense that he (Yoshke) thought that he himself was Mashiach ben Yosef because he compared his blood to the 3rd cup of wine, and not the 4th cup of wine. Al pi Kabbalah, the 3rd cup of wine corresponds to Mashiach ben Yosef while the 4th cup of wine corresponds to Mashiach ben David. So it does make sense that he THOUGHT that he was that exalted historic figure. But it makes no sense that he was that historic figure. Instead of defeating Edom or Amalek, he has been used as a tool by Edom and Amalek to beat us over the head for the last 2000 years. So he could have thought that he was that vaulted personality, but he had illusions of grandeur.

Yep, the biggest problem about identifying Mashiach as one personality or another (ancient, Medieval, or Modern) is that we can carelessly forget that our relationship with G-d has nothing to do with who Mashiach ben Yosef or ben David is, absolutely nothing to do with it. It is enough of a relief to know that he is alive and living in our generation and that the Redemption is imminent....That last statement applies more to Mashiach ben David since there he is supposed to survive the revelation that he is Mashiach. Ben Yosef does not necessarily survive, but BELIEVING that someone IS Ben Yosef or Ben David is a requirement for no one. We see how well this worked out with Yoshke, and we see similar problems developing with some who believe that the Lubavitcher Rebbe is Mashiach. The next generation will make it a requirement to believe that their dead Rebbe IS Mashiach. And then where are those Jews at when they make it a requirement to believe that their candidate IS Mashiach? Well, it ain't Judaism no longer.

Truth is that many of our sages believed & believe the whole story of Yoshke is a madeup one and whatever the case, it is none of our business, except to have absolutely no dealings, participation or discussions of any sort. Our gedolim have warned us of such dialogue, from both the chassidic and misnagdish world, that we are not allowed to have dialogues with them in regard to their religion.

I also hear that a possible sunday law will be enforced after he takes the seat. Everything that is happening at the moment is feeding the other branches of xtianity.

Yes, Paul made Yoshke part of the Trinity which made him equal to G-d, G-d forbid. Yoshke himself never claimed to be G-d though. He did a lot of bad things though. He overturned tables in the Ct. of the Gentiles that were trading Makhzit HaShekel with the Olei HaBayit. He used the Names of HaShem to perform magic. And he claimed to be a "perfect sacrifice" so that he would be either Mashiach ben Yosef or ben David. He also changed the halakhah of meforshim, those entrusted with the Oral Torah, to suit his own purposes. The interesting thing about the point at hand as well as the salient point about the Upper Room over King David's tomb is that he claimed that the tzafun at the Pesach Seder was his body and the 3rd cup of wine was his blood. It has been used as a hammer against us for over 1700 years since the Council of Nicea. And it is being used against us this very day by the visitor to the Holy City as he demands that that Last Supper Room be turned into a church and the synagogue underneath it would then become unusable. I am trying to remain focused on that very issue because the problems with Xtianity are more than I can count on my fingers and toes.

Even if Obama does not declare martial law to set up his third term in office, Ted Cruz does not have much of a shot. Good people in America can't win nationwide office anymore. Look at the last 25 years since Reagan to figure that out. There simply is not a moral majority anymore.

Also Ted Cruz had a Hispanic, Cuban father who was not American at his birth, and Ted Cruz was born in Western Canada. I don't know if that disqualifies him from POTUS. One could argue that Barry Soetoro had more cobwebs in his yichus as an American, but Ted Cruz is not the New Age Messiah like the present POTUS is.

Tonight is the 43rd night in the counting of the Omer and the 3rd day of the 6 Day War. It is also the day that Yerushalayim was reunited after about 1900 years of being a lost virgin without her lover. So congratulations to Yerushalayim and thank HaShem for His Mercies. From the Count of the Omer we can all see that Shavuot is in exactly one week. It is interesting that the Torah says that we count 7 weeks, but it also says that we count 50 days which is 7 weeks and 1 day. So why don't we count on the day of Shavuot/ Pentecost itself??? Get out your Septuagint translation of the Torah. The sages called Shavuot Pentecost. Hmm.

5/27/2014 11:54 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

My guess is that the Sages wanted to emphasize to the Greeks that the 50th day was holy in the same way that the 8th day is also holy because Ruach HaQodesh exists in the 8th dimension. So the same is true with 7x7 +1. The Greeks spurned the entire idea of Qedushah, that there was no transcendence to nature. So in their mind everything existed in groups of 7 such as 7 notes in a musical scale and 7 wonders of the world, etc. The name Shavuot or Weeks would not give that message to the Greeks, but Pentecost definitely does.

Didn't vote in the local / euro elections here in the UK since nowadays people in Europe are basically harassed (whether by thugs or by media), socially ostracized and even sacked from their jobs in the event that it is discovered that they voted against the establishment for any reason.

Ultimately though a Jew should make preparations for leaving exile, so the Anti-Jewish / Anti-Israel Indigenous folks and Anti-Jewish / Anti-Israel Leftist Establishment and Muslim invaders can fight it out.

Some Jewish-by-birth Leftists in the UK are now trying to shame other Jews for voting UKIP and accusing them of becoming complacent by spewing half-truths noting their ancestors were once immigrants and that they’ll never be accepted as British, while omitting the fact that many of the illegals coming to the UK are Jew-haters of both the muslim or non-muslim variety who are bestowed a privileged status with lots of benefits and perks by the Pro-Immigration Anti-Israel Islamophilic political establishment.

Political alliances for a common goal make strange bedfellows. In this case the EU is about as evil as it gets. It is a monetary alliance between a united Germany (300 princes) and the Roman Church (365 principle saints) mentioned in the Gemorrah which is a recipe for Amalek to try and take over the world. During WW2 it was Hitler who nurtured that alliance with the Church. In our time, it is the EU and the Euro (the Ayin Ra) that seek to take over the world. As bad as some of these Euroskeptics might be, nothing is worse than the EU and its currency which need to be destroyed post-haste. As far as Nigel Farage himself is concerned, I have not heard anti-Semitic things coming out of his mouth, and he is not a guy who refrains from ever speaking up. He may be a prince among the riff-raff with which he has to form an alliance to tear down a United Europe, but a United Europe's continued existence is a recipe made in Hell.

Dear G-d: Elisha HaNavi annointed the King Haza'el on the steps of the synagogue! This is a loss of Biblical proportions (First Kings 19:15, the haftarah for Parshat Pinchus this year). very, very sad. Perhaps Eliyahu haNavi will come now to avenge this loss. Whenever the haftarah for Parshat Pinchus is read before the 3 weeks, this haftarah is read. Within the haftarah is a reference to the composition of Medrash Sefer Eliyahu under a rotem tree outside of Beer Sheva, the eschaton for the End of Days. In years when this haftarah is read because Matot and Masei are on separate Shabbatot during the 3 weeks, Eliyahu HaNavi can show up.

This is not really a proxy war because large numbers of Russian citizens are involved as mercenaries in this conflict.

Just to clarify a point: Why is the Xtian Pentecost on Sunday and always on Sunday? because like the Tzidukim (Sadducees) and possibly the Tzenu'im (Essenes) of old, they make the same mistake. They count the 50 days from the first Sabbath after the first night of Pesach or in the Xtian case, from the Saturday before Easter. In short, for the first few days after the first night of Pesach, there is no Sefirat HaOmer at all until Motzei Shabbat. sad mistake.

Yaakov knows that one has to work hard to purify himself from the 49 gates of Tumah, and slowly enter the 49 gates of Tahorah one by one, before he can catch a glimpse of the 50 gates of Binah.
While Esav thinks that he can immediately achieve the 50 gates while still indulging in Olam Hazeh. (In a certain sense he actually succeeded, with his head buried in Itzhak's lap in Me'arat Hamachpela and his body burning away for eternity in hell)

Jewgirl, that is why I suggested the poop, because this is now in the open since his visit. The police are doing this, and the orders come from somewhere. Yes, we need to find out WHO is behind this!

It is coming from some Western evil. When Putin was here over a year ago, he visited the Kotel at 1am for a State Visit and tour of the 1am. As he was leaving the Kotel Plaza, a Russian Jew said hello to him in Russian. Putin came over to the Jew to talk to him. It was about 2am at the time. He asked the Russian Jew, "Why are you here at 2am?" The Russian Jew answered, "I am davening for the 3rd Temple to be built on top of this mountain." Putin answered something on the order of, "So am I." So the order to not pray for the 3rd Temple is NOT coming from Vlad Putin. You can find this bizarre conversation on Youtube. Of course it is in Russian.

Congratulations! to all of you who made it to counting every day for the last 7 weeks since the first day of Pesach. You have completed a great mitzvah that is dependent on remembering each day to do it, not an easy task at all. Now take a break and drink a shot of whiskey or vodka to celebrate.

Remember tomorrow night is a night to be pure in body as well as in spirit. Men who normally don't go to a mikveh every day, usually do on Erev Shavu'ot.

A civil suit in Pennsylvania helped authorities get court orders to seize parts of the infected network, and on May 7, Ukrainian authorities seized and copied Gameover Zeus command servers in Kiev and Donetsk, officials said. U.S. and other agents worked from early Friday through the weekend to seize servers around the world, freeing some 300,000 victim computers from the botnet so far.

You know that you are putting enough time and money into Shavu'ot if you are spending as much money on gladiolas as you do on shmurah matzah for Pesach. Chag Same'ach.

Also try learning some of Sefer Ruth during all night learning tonight especially here in Eretz Yisrael. Sefer Ruth is given short shrift here because Shavuot is only one day. In Chu"l Sefer Ruth is part of the focus of the 2nd day of Shavu'ot.

I have been learning the Book of Ruth during the Counting of the Omer for the past three or four years. I spend a lot of time (days) in the kitchen backing challah so I listen to this series by rabbi YY Jacobson' It's a very in-depth 8 part series. I highly recommend it.

Elimelekh was from Beit Lechem in the Land of Yehudah.... runs away to the fields of Moav on the other side of the Yarden to get away from meshulachim collecting for tzedakah. Oy, now I am confused. The Poop just told us that Beit Lechem is part of Palestine and they need to expand northward into Talpiyot or East Talpiyot or Arnonah or Givat HaMatos. Now the Targum Yonatan on Devarim tells us that the mechablim (saboteurs or terrorists) in Yehudah at the End of Days will be from Ammon and Moav. So Ammon and Moav are the Palestinians and they inhabit the place that Elimelekh ran away from four or five generations before the birth of King David. So what is the tikkun? People who want to run away from meshulachim should buy homes in Beit Lechem, which today is part of the New Moav, as a tikkun for Elimelekh running away over 3000 years ago!

Orpa the sister-in-law who rejected Naomi and returned was to become mother to Dovids enemy, Golios. I seem to remember she became pregnant with this giant when she was assaulted on the path home to her father king Eglon.
So are you saying buying in Efrat, since I don’t think it is possible to even enter Beit Lechem before risking an actual Arab Apartheid death sentence for buying.

Nope, it would be nice to start buying land adjacent to Mama Rachel's tomb and expand out from there. That is where Beit Lechem really is. Modern Efrat is more west and south of where it was in ancient times because of apartheid in Beit Lechem. Plus, in order to do teshuvah for running away from giving tzedakah, one has to be willing to take a risk. This is a perfect way to repair Elimelekh's sin.

Such a purchase would be an investment to begin with, and one could not live there immediately. But could rent out the property until it was safer. I know someone who owns a home (with a partner) adjacent to Mama Rachel's tomb and she cannot live there, but it is used for Torah learning and shiurim for tourists and those brave enough to venture there regularly. This is how it began in Hevron, slowly but surely. Great idea, Dov.

Seems like one cannot even trust either the Hindus or the Buddhists/Confucians.

While we are supposed to only rely upon our father in heaven and nothing else, what is the next step once every Jew has internalized the reality? Especially since many Religious Jews are divided and have their own issues in terms of outlook, leader-worship and other problems for a proper consensus to be made with regards to Teshuvah.

It is bad enough having some anti-zionist religious Jews constantly condemn Zionism as a replacement religion and the state of Israel as a non-Jewish Anti-Torah state, yet either do not have the answers as to how to bring about true change in line with the Jewish Redemptive vision or like the rest of us are too impotent / powerless to push things into the right direction towards a Torah state.

Try not to judge how G-d will save us by Netanyahu's perpetual fears and weakness. The Eibishter will likely do an end around since the faithless PM is a poor vessel for His salvations.

For instance, apparently unrelated but due north of Eretz Yisrael, this is going on at the same time.

HaShem has an infinite number of weapons in His arsenal. Bibi is like a rusty old pocket knife. He and his faithlessness are NOT a proper vessel for HaShem's salvation especially since a Kiddush HaShem will likely result, and Bibi does not know how to do that....yet.

Now that D Day festivities are coming to an end, perhaps the Russians and the West can get around to hating each other again. I think Putin has held off on real action in the Ukraine in large part because of D Day and the G-7/8 Summit which seems to have lead right into D Day festivities. Bye Bye Normandy! Thanks to the WW2 generation of Americans. They are NOT in charge anymore though.

Reb Dov,

I also appreciated the Lawyer Mom (you called her SuperMom). I hope this sets a precedent and other parents in this situation will be willing to go to her for legal advice and action!

Imagine - a religious woman lawyer standing up confidently to police in front of the world!

I want to be HER paralegal.

Are we in Israel about to pass a "mercy killing" law?

I hope not! But if they do, the GOI will have just jumped off the cliff, with no rescue for them.

Does this mean that Mashiach would be coming to a nation of sinners? I hope we normal folks will not be held accountable for decisions of which we had no say in the matter, even if we were informed in advance.

Starting with 5727, the year of the 6 Day War, the Reunification of Yerushalayim, and the Summer of Love and the first year of the Yesod that is in Malkhut Yovel cycle, we are like a society or more like two societies heading in two opposite directions. Some of us are going up in purity, one level at a time, until the 50th gate, the year 5776. The Erev Rav, the Asafsuf, is leading a bunch of folks in the opposite direction below the 49th level of tumah by the end of the year 5775. How we reconcile the two societies existing side by side, I don't know. Just pray for a separation.

Now that the Poop, Abbas, and Armolgus are praying for Pieces in Eretz Yisrael in the Vatican Rose Garden, Vlad Putin has a decision to make about Slavyansk and Pieces in the Ukraine Happy Pentecost to our Catholic and Sadducee (Tziduki) brothers.

Oh just in: Abbas was heard mumbling under his breath: “in the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate". So Abbas has claimed the Vatican Rose Garden for Islam just like Bowe Bergdahl's father claimed the White House Rose Garden for Islam. White House now owned by Islam
