There Are More Things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio ......

Those who read this blog regularly know that I was on the verge of suspending it as of this coming Isru Chag of Shavuot.  I truly believed, and of course as we finally see right now, continue to believe, that this Yom Yerushalayim and Shavuot 5776 one week later are the Gateway to the 50th Gate of both the physical Yerushalayim on Earth and the spiritual Yerushalayim in Heaven.  It IS the 50th Yom Yerushalayim, the date of its unification, since and including the year of the 6 Day War on the third day of that war.  Yom Yerushalayim 5776 is therefore the entrance to the 50th and the Golden Gates since they are truly one and the same.  For the last several years now, I have believed that at this very auspicious moment at which we are at its doorstep or Gateway was not just the next most opportune time for the Final Redemption in our Generation, but that it was actually the Time, B'Itah, that Mashiach ben David would have to show up to greet us at the 50th Gate, in the words of Rav Chaim Vital, zt"l.  And so it seems to be.....  (So as long as this process proceeds, I won't be suspending this blog anytime soon.....)

The list of everything that has happened during this week of Netzach during the Counting of the Omer between the 49th Pesach and 50th Shavuot since the 6 Day War is lengthy.  Here are just four events:
1. 66 gentile souls die as their plane descends to Mitzraim between the two countries France and Mitzraim set to divide Jerusalem this Summer.  Gen 46.  66 souls accompanied Yaakov to Mitzraim.

 66 gentile souls went down in an airplane into the Mediterranean that originated in Paris, France on the way to Mitzraim as the plane entered Mitzri traffic control airspace... in honor of this pasuk....

ו כָּל-הַנֶּפֶשׁ הַבָּאָה לְיַעֲקֹב מִצְרַיְמָה, יֹצְאֵי יְרֵכוֹ, מִלְּבַד, נְשֵׁי בְנֵי-יַעֲקֹב--כָּל-נֶפֶשׁ, שִׁשִּׁים וָשֵׁשׁ. 26 All the souls belonging to Jacob that came into Egypt, that came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore and six. (That would be 66.)

Dear L-rd, Now that we are arriving at the 50th Gate, Are You just getting started?

Oh, the Parisians in coordination with El Sisi of Mitzraim just announced today or yesterday that they will not be deterred this Summer with their most important foreign policy goal in their lap: to divide Yerushalayim and the rest of Eretz Yisrael between the Jews and the Mythical State of the Invented People!  Good Show Hollande!  Good show El Sisi! You really want to get lacerated again?   

2. Meir Ettinger's torturer in the Defense Ministry  Moshe Boogie Yaalon falls from his high perch on this past Wednesday, the Day of Netzach that is in Netzach, 25th day of the Omer.  At the Brit Milah of his son that Meir could not attend under orders from Yaalon, the baby received the mysterious and unusual first name Netzach about which Rav Yitzchak Ginsburgh Shlit"a gave a two hr. drashah at the seudat brit.  There was a Mazkir at the Seudah recording the entire drashah.  I know someone who is close to the Rav.  I will try to get the transcript from him. 

3. Meir Ettinger will now get a release from being Israel's foremost political prisoner of the past year (one of the Yordei Duma or those arrested for the Duma arsons/murders).  He will be released a mere four days before we reach the Gateway to the 50th year of Yerushalayim's Unification.  The 50th gate physically is The Golden Gate to The Temple Mount from the Qidron Valley to where the Ezrat HaNashim was during the times of the First two Temples on The Mount.  The Golden Gate aka Shaar HaRachamim is in a direct line from the peak of the Mt. of Olives on the other side of the Qidron valley to the east of the Old City, from there to the Holy of Holies on the Temple Mount.

4.  And now the foremost Temple Mt activist in the world is entering the K'nesset as an MK to replace the fallen Yaalon!   And as he enters, he ponders and prays about Sanctifying the Name of Heaven!  

Now where is Horatio when you need him!  So much is happening, and in this summary I have skipped so much that has occurred in the last 72 hours alone.  Now that we are approaching the 50th Gate, expect a Flood of Geulah news.  Expect that it might be difficult for Geulah bloggers to keep up with all the details of the flow of events.  All that was Derekh HaTeva since the 6 Day War for the last 49 years will revert to relationships between events that are openly miraculous.  That is the only thing that we will be able to fully expect as we approach and enter this auspicious 50th year.

After the events of the last week, I am ecstatic enough this Erev Shabbat to start singing Hallel without a bracha, but I know that we are in a process that will only BEGIN to climax during the week of Malkhut, the week between Yom Yerushalayim and Shavuot of Sefirat HaOmer.  So we should thank HaShem appropriately for the miracles so far, but perhaps we should wait on the Hallel until Yom Yerushalayim and Shavuot itself, the latter Hallel on Shavuot said with a brachah.  But let us reflect on the words in one of the most appropriate chapters of Hallel that is apropos for this moment.  It is from Psalm 115.  You see, at the Pesach Seder the first two Psalms of Hallel, 113 and 114, are recited BEFORE the Seudah, Shulkhan Orech, because they praise G-d for the Exodus from Mitzraim.  So the last four chapters of Hallel are sung after the third cup of wine when we Praise G-d in lieu of the Final Redemption which we are right now entering.   The third cup of wine is recited over the ingathering of 6 million Jews to Eretz Yisrael from the depths of Galut while we are still at the 49th level of impurity.  It is solely a physical ingathering of the Dry Bones of our exile to the Land of Israel that has been taking place now since the students of the GR"A  and the Great Chassidic masters joined the Sephardim who were already here at the turn of the 19th Century (around 1800).  The secular Aliyot began 80 years later in the 1880s while the Socialists showed up around 1900.  We do have a mixed crew here to say the least, but it IS the physical ingathering of the Nation for better or for worse.  And the Afikomen that we eat after the Seudah on Seder night celebrates the ingathering of the 6 million while we are still at the 49th level of impurity since Matzah represents that level more than any other food at the Seder.  Now the only way to be redeemed from that level SPIRITUALLY is for the prominent Edomite nations of the world to fall to an even lower level than -49.  Thanks to Donald Trump, the Middle third of American culture is now at -50, the spiritual gutter or Abyss (Tehom in Hebrew) so that as Caesaria now lies in ruin, Yerushalayim can be spiritually rebuilt....Welcome home everyone.  

So as we turn the page in the Hagaddah from the Tzafun (Afikomen) to Birkat HaMazon and the third cup of wine, we arrive at the moment where Eliyahu HaNavi can now appear out of a techeilet blue sky in a Chariot of Fire to herald the Coming of Mashiach ben David.  And then we start to sing Hallel (Psalm 115).  Psalm 115 is a Psalm of contrasts.  It starts with a plea that HaShem redeem us from our lowly state not for our sake but for the Sake of the Sanctification of His Holy Name.  It contrasts the chotchkas of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches, their physical idols, with the fact that Klal Yisrael and righteous gentiles cleave to and trust in HaShem, who cannot be molded or made in our own image or the image of something that is limited by our imaginations.  "Those who fear HaShem trust in HaShem.  Their help and their Shield is He!"    Then we sing about how HaShem blesses all the segments of G-d's Holy Nation who fear Him.  "upon us and upon our children.  We are the blessed of HaShem the Maker of Heaven and Earth."  Again we read the next contrast that the the Heavens are owned by HaShem, but He has given Olam HaZeh here on earth to Mankind.  And then the final concluding contrast between Olam HaZeh and Yemot HaMashiach...

  לֹא הַמֵּתִים, יְהַלְלוּ-יָהּ;    וְלֹא, כָּל-יֹרְדֵי דוּמָה. 17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into (or because of) Duma;  Duma can be translated as Silence in reference to gag orders and the muzzling of dissent in Shabak's torture chambers.
יח  וַאֲנַחְנוּ, נְבָרֵךְ יָהּ--    מֵעַתָּה וְעַד-עוֹלָם:
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ. 18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for ever. {N}

So who would like to Greet the survivors of the tortures because of Duma when they get out of their confinement?   Who wants to greet the soldiers of Mashiach ben David at the 50th Gate??

Shabbat Shalom...the end of the Week of Netzach!

I'm on the edge of my seat as I read this! I certainly want to greet the soldiers of Mashiach at the 50th Gate! Tell us more!

I learned something very interesting regarding getting our Yordei Duma out of there: Petitions don't work because the Israeli government doesn't really care about them; none of the Knesset members represent people, cities, towns, etc., per se. However, I have it on good authority (I don't have permission to reveal that person) that the legal parties who took part behind the scenes to buy publicity to get Meir out of jail put out money in advance in some way (I don't know exactly what or how it was done) and need to pay it back. Money talks and campaigns of newspaper ads, posters, flyers and more work because our government doesn't like negative publicity. So, here's the link: Free Ettinger!

If donating from outside of Israel, open "To Donate..." and just skip the ID# line, fill out the rest and send.

I believe that if they get enough donations, they will use them to get the rest of the detainees out as well. And if this works...maybe we (the Nation of Israel) can use this model to get all the Prisoners of Zion out of their jail cells and back home. Now, wouldn't that be a real miracle?!

Dov and CDG,

Thanks for this very important information - referring to the exact time of Pesach Sheni, I thought it was all day the 29th day of the Omer; not so. And also referring to the amazing info re: the posters, the money owed, etc. Bli neder I will try to participate: no mitzvah is greater than Pidyan Shevuim.

Shavuah Tov and Happy Pesach Sheni. I finished watching Rabbi Alon Anava's shiur on Pesach Sheni, it was quite informative, I do recommend it ( sometimes the tone, even the content, is directed at beginning Torah students, still overall he is making lots of important points):

Arutz 7 also has a great article on the Mitzvah of Shemittah and Har Sinai. Never thought of that Mitzvah in that way. Worth a read:

From Rav Yitzchak Ginsburgh's book: Rectifying the State of Israel: Chapter on Netzach: From the perspective of Qabbalah, Netzach is brought into rectification through Aliyah. This is the case because, Netzach is tied to the right leg, and when rising in altitude, one puts their "right foot" forward first. Now he spends most of the chapter talking about Aliyah from the nations of the world to Eretz Yisrael, but there are three other levels of Aliyah.

1. Aliyat HaRegel from all over Israel to Yerushalayim. This was done three times a year. Coming for Pesach and Sukkot were set aside as 7 and 8 day affairs by their lengths as festivals. Shavuot being one day would have been difficult if everyone walked two or three days in order to be in Yerushalayim for just one day. So Chaza"l added 6 days of Isru Chag to Shavuot during which one could still offer up a korban Chagigah for Shavuot for the remaining 6 days (7th Siwan - 12 Siwan). So Shavuot for all intents and purposes became a 7 day festival by edict from Chaza"l. In this way, all three "regalim" became 7 or 8 day festivals (since Pesach and Sukkot are that length in the Torah already). This made the trip on Shavuot more inviting and less cumbersome. So people would walk two/three days to be in Yerushalayim for 7 days instead of just one day. Therefore they were more likely to make the trip since appearing on Shavuot was no less of a mitzvah than appearing on Pesach and Sukkot.

2. Aliyat Har HaBayit (Going up to the Temple Mount): This is also an Aliyah explaining why Yehudah Glick's entrance into the Knesset is associated with the week of Netzach.

3. Aliyah from the Ezrat HaNashim up the 15 steps through the Nicanor Gates to the Ezrat Yisrael/ Kohanim. While ascending each step one read/ sang the 15 Shirei Ma'alot (Songs of Ascent) from Psalms.

Please let me point out. I do not fault anyone raising money to get these boys out of jail by whatever means possible. If it is for publicity or bribing, these boys are being held unjustly, and this money I am sure is being put to good use.

Yes, I knew this. I have another question of interest... We know that Meir Ettinger's grandfather was a Kohane on his mother's side but lineage is passed down through the father. Is Meir's father a Yehudi? (David HaMelech is Yehudi).

I haven't been posting links to my latest posts as a matter of habit, but since this one is so linked to the heart of the post, here it is: On the freeing of Meir Ettinger... - an interview with an insider.

Also, to EM (and other readers):

I believe I read somewhere that Meir's whole name is actually Meir David Chai because he was born after his grandfather, for whom he is named, was assassinated and his parents said: Meir David Lives! - and thus his name. For prayer he is Meir David Chai ben Tovah.

May all the Jewish detainees be set free, and the Prisoners of Zion be set free, and we with them! Geulah Shleimah on or before Shavuoth or bust!

So quickly before answering other questions later. Hi Miryam: Long time no see. Yes, this is my fault for allowing the previous post on this blog to become Chametz even during Pesach, G-d forbid! Somewhere at the end of over 300 comments, you will find our discussion of Last names that are believed to indicate Davidic Descent Look through the list. It is somewhat lengthy, But Ettinger is on the list under Ittinga! So not only is Ettinger a last name associated with the lineage of Malkhut David, but the compilers of this list did not even qualify that particular surname with an asterisk. An asterisk would have indicated that there is a doubt over whether that last name should be on the list, but with the last name Ettinger, there is no doubt. It is definitely one of the possible surnames of Mashiach ben David.

This is not meant to declare anything except to say that there is a strong possibility that Meir Ettinger is a patrilineal descendant of King David while his mother was a bat Kohen from the pre-eminent family of Kohanim of the last 50 years. Nothing else should be drawn from the above link, but it does keep that door of Malkhut David wide open.

My father's mother's maiden name was Bernstein. On the list of names indicating Davidic descent it has no asterisk. How likely is it that I might be a descendant of David haMelech too? Not that it matters much in terms of my real life or anything...but I am curious. Probably a lot of people are as well. It would seem that DhM has a lot of descendants.

I also wonder how many people lost the knowledge so they couldn't pass it down.

Dov and CDG,

i am always amazed at the Hashgachah Pratit. Just this past Shabbat I was reviewing a book Susan Roth, one of the authors of the website with the Davidic list, had given me. She wrote a book on Kabbalah that at the time I found very strange. It is actually quite scholarly. I met Susan years ago already, and we were discussing the Davidic dynasty then. She was involved with Kever Rachel at the time. Interesting lady. Then I read your list, without having made the connection. And here we are discussing Susan Roth, just a day after I reopened her book and remembered her - after about 12-15 years!!!!

BTW my family is also of the Davidic dynasty through the Noda Beyehuda, Rav Yechezkel Landau ZT"L, himself a descendant of Rashi - I think I had told you once before.. .

Our extended family is very, very large - I mean all descendants; only Hashem can sift through all that to determine who is worthy of being the Mashiach. After all there were lots of bad kings descended from David Hamelech too!

What about Yehuda Glick? There is a Glickman on the Davidic List, and his first name is Yehuda. I doubt he is a candidate for earth-shaking Geula events. But, we have been surprised by many things in history.

I still prefer Meir Ettinger as my choice for one of the Mashiachs. I had proposed this early on when his name first appeared in the news and I read about him; his ideas (and the situation) sparked a feeling of Dovid HaMelech in my thoughts

For the interim, here is Yehudah Glick's temporarily last Ascent of Har HaBayit. I am sure he is planning to return while he is still an MK as soon as possible, but "the law" prevents him from ascending while he is an MK. Raising awareness to change that law is quite another matter......Sorry, it really is not a law that prevents Glick from ascending at this time as an MK. It is "an agreement" between Da King Abdullah of Yarden and the lowly pre-Messianic Prime Minister from the House of Natan (Zecharia 12).

Ginno: Yes, I have discussed this matter before in the Comments sections of the most recent posts. I realize that to wade through Comments can be arduous. So I will quickly explain again.

That pasuk that says that the Yordei Duma cannot praise G-d is already preceded by the statement that No one amongst the Dead can praise HaShem. So that (first half of the pasuk) already includes those amongst the dead who are entering the Gates of Gehinnom as a subset of those who are dead. Yes, it is true that Duma is either one of the levels of Gehinnom or is the Angel guarding the Gate to Gehinnom. But in this case, the Yordei Duma have to be from a different category than from those who are already dead because the pasuk already tells us that those who are dead cannot praise HaShem. It makes no sense to only then tell us about a subset of those who are dead who, we already know, cannot already praise HaShem. So in this case, the Yordei Duma are very much alive. I believe that this is a reference to a group of Jews "going down into Duma" in Olam HaZeh and in the Land of the Living just before Mashiach comes. I realize that this is my chiddush. You don't have to accept it if you don't want.

I don't know what to make of this fact, but while 5776 is the 48th Yovel since Ezra HaSofer (along with being the beginning of the 49th Yovel cycle), it is at the same time the 66th Yovel since the Conquest of the Land by Yehoshua bin Nun....66th Yovel. Hmm. get back to you on that one.

Now let us discuss Hod (Glory or Thanksgiving) from the book by Rav Ginsburgh. The Rav stresses that when a Sefirah is from the "left side" like Gevurah (Judgement and Might) and Hod, it must be preceded by one of the Right Side, the Side of Love (Ahavah). Our purpose for being a Nation of Priests is a Divine purpose born out of Love for Mankind by HaShem. He made us that special nation in order to be a conduit of His Love to the entire world. Yet, after we establish that conduit of Love through the Sefirot of Chessed and Netzach (lovingkindness and eternity), the World will be cleansed of those undesirable elements that cannot be proper vessels for that Love. I believe that would be during the Final War of Gog UMagog when the nations of the world gather against Yerushalayim to divide it in response to Mashiach's coming.

On the local level of Eretz Yisrael, Aliyah to the Land must be accompanied by expelling those non-Jewish and sadly sometimes even Jewish inhabitants who can't keep G-d's 7 basic principles of common decency. So the Right leg of Aliyah to the Land of Israel must be accompanied by the weaker but firm Left leg of expelling (or proverbially "kicking out") about 70% of our cousins here who refuse to be decent human beings. (Yes, from polls over the decades, I believe that percentage is as high as 80% but as low as 70%. A poll would be taken dealing with the murder of Jewish children for instance to achieve stated political goals, and invariably about 70 to 80% of Arab respondents to those polls approve of such behavior with glee in their hearts.) So at least 70% of the Arabs who are here have no place here under any circumstances in any world, in this world or in the Messianic Era, but sadly it will only be in the Messianic Era when the problem is finally taken care of.

On the issue of Yovel cycles, let me share a new thought in order to paint the picture of where we are in the process of Redemption. Remember my earlier Comment dealing with the Four Aliyot? Well try this on for size.

1. The Yovel year 5678 (Fall of 2017 - Fall of 1918) for all intents and purposes put into motion, in a large scale way, the First and most basic Aliyah rectification of Returning Eretz Yisrael into the hands of the Jewish people throughout the globe. Therefore Aliyah to the Land of Israel in 1918 began to increase by several orders of magnitude from its humble beginnings in the 19th Century and the early 20th Century. When Gen. Allenby under the orders of David Lloyd Gog, PM of Great Britain, conquered Yerushalayim on the Eve of the First night of Chanukah, the Balfour Declaration which had been decreed in the previous month in Nov. of 1917, could be then put into effect allowing for large scale immigration of Jews to reclaim their ancient homeland. Over the course of about 20 years after the Balfour Declaration, the British tried to squeeze the spigot of Jews who were entering into the Land, and on the Eve of WW2, Chamberlain cut off all Jewish immigration to the Land altogether. As a result of the Shoah, HaShem then handed over the job of bringing Jews into the Land of Israel to the Secular Zionists who founded the State of Israel in 5708. The mass immigration of Jews to the Land resumed so that from 1917 until 1948, the population of E. Yisrael went from 60,000 or 70,000 Jews in 1918 to 600,000 Jews, and from 1948 until 1967 (5727), the population of the Land then rose to about 2.6 million Jews including 600,000 men over the age of 19 (20 and up). So from 1918 until 1967, the first 49 year period under discussion, the Goal of the First Full Redemptive Yovel was met, over 600,000 Jewish adult men from 20 and up living in the Land of Israel.

Here we are referring to the previous 49 year period 1869 - 1917 as being only a partial period of redeeming the Land since the first agricultural Aliyah was not until 1882. So that Yovel was only a Partially Redemptive Yovel, and during that time the population of Eretz Yisrael rose from about 25,000 Jews to about 150,000 Jews before WW1. During WW1 about half of the Jews in Israel temporarily fled the country so that at the end of the war there were only 60 or 70,000 Jews in Eretz Yisrael. It was a warzone. So temporarily leaving a war zone is understandable. continued....

5/23/2016 9:52 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

just one last point about the WW1 period. It was a war zone between two non-Jewish gentile forces (the Turks and the British). It was not a war of Israel's survival since the modern state had not yet been born. Under such circumstances a non-protected civilian who is not a civilian citizen of one of the warring parties is a sitting duck. So it is understandable that during that particular war, Jewish refugees temporarily left the country.

2. The Yovel year 5727 including the 6 Day War (26th of Iyar - 2nd of Siwan 5727 or June 5 - 10th, 1967): This Yovel year shifted the momentum from more than just Aliyah to the Land of Israel to Aliyah to the holier half of the Holy City which of course includes the Old City and the Temple Mount and the Mt. of Olives along with the Qidron Valley in between. This is the theater of miracles dealing with the Splitting of the Mt. of Olives that will take place when the nations of the world gather against Yerushalayim to divide it. In this Yovel the Jewish population to the Land continued to rise and of course included a major spurt of Aliyah from Russia and Ethiopia which climaxed in the Year 5751 (Fall of 1990 - 1991) 3/4 if the way through the 6th Millennium, just as the Vilna Gaon had prophesied would occur 200 years earlier. They were the Ovdim b'Eretz Ashur and the Nidachim in Eretz Mitzraim that the prophet Yeshayahu of old had prophesied would come on Aliyah. They kicked off the final 40 years of Kibbutz Galuyot (the last end of days Aliyah) that the Vilna Gaon also predicted would take place from 5751 until 5790 according to the Gaon. So what switched in 1967 was the emphasis from simple Aliyah to the Land of Israel that began in earnest in the previous Yovel year 5678 to Aliyah to Yerushalayim Ir HaQodesh beginning in the year 5727 (1967). Even Aliyat HaRegel was again made possible. Our family makes it a point to daven at the Kotel during certain choice times of the year including at least once during Chol HaMoed Pesach and also at least once during Chol HaMoed Sukkot. Based on my writings above in Comments, I will now add davening at the Kotel at least once during the 6 days that immediately follow Chag HaShavuot (7th - 12th of Siwan). These were the Shalosh Regalim after all when we all made Aliyat HaRegel to Yerushalayim in ancient times. And even making "Aliyah" to the Old City, I believe, constitutes a going up in holiness since unlike the rest of Yerushalayim, the Old City itself was walled since Zerubavel returned with the 42,000 Olim during the 70 years of Galut Bavel. And during that time period, building a Wall to Yerushalayim was so, so important that Nechemiah himself came to oversee the process of building the Wall around Yerushalayim. Now including Yerushalayim and its environs somewhere between 500,000 and 600,000 Jews now live in Yerushalayim including the Old City and all of the outlying neighborhoods. I would also include Adam aka Geva Binyamin and Gush Etzion since Zecharia HaNavi says that Yerushalayim at the End of Days stretches from Geva Binyamin in the north to Givat Rimon in Efrat. In that stretch of land there are surely over 600,000 Jews along with a total of 6 million Jews now in the Land of Israel in total at the end of this last 49 year stretch of time from the Summer of 5727 to the Summer of 5776. So now it is time for the next stage....Stage 3. Mashiach at the 50th Gate in preparation for Aliyat Har HaBayit!! beginning in the Summer of 5776! continued.....

Beginning in summer 2016 and ending.....when? How long is it supposed to take?

Also what is the point of that 66 ppl who went with Jacob down to Egypt and the plane that 66 died? What is the connection? What is that supposed to represent?

Mark: I explained in the post that both France and El Sisi were colluding with each other to force a settlement on us this Summer to divide Yerushalayim as soon as possible. Bibi was supposed to form a govt. with Herzog to help bring this about. El Sisi had no desire in talking to Bibi about this unless Herzog was there as Bibi's partner. It blew up on the 25th Day of the Counting of the Omer. The very next day or perhaps that very evening, Boom, that plane ended up at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea with 66 dead.

We have also discussed how long with this take several times already. Ben David comes ...maybe right now. That fulfills the statement that Ben David comes in Motzei Shvi'it. Remember what I wrote. He achieves the status of Chezkat Mashiach before the end of this Summer (most likely by Tisha B'Av), and then he has to prove himself over the next two years. This is the third time that I have written this down by the way. Why two years? Because Shma Yisrael hints that from the Founding of the Secular State after the last Churban at the end of the 4th exile (the enlarged Dalet), the Shoah, it will take 70 years (the enlarged Ayin) for Mashiach to establish his Messianic Kingdom. So from 5708, 70 years takes us to 5778. The enlarged Dalet may also refer to bringing together the Yud Key with the Lower Vav Key by the end of this same 70 year period. This is also based on the illustrative language used by Ya'akov Avinu when he blessed Yehudah and the Messianic Kingdom that will come from his loins. From Bereishit 49:

ט גּוּר אַרְיֵה יְהוּדָה, מִטֶּרֶף בְּנִי עָלִיתָ; כָּרַע רָבַץ כְּאַרְיֵה וּכְלָבִיא, מִי יְקִימֶנּוּ. 9 Judah is a lion's whelp; from the prey, my son, thou art gone up. He stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as a lioness; who shall rouse him up? (This refers to his Kingdom being set up during the month of the lion which is Menachem Av.)
י לֹא-יָסוּר שֵׁבֶט מִיהוּדָה, וּמְחֹקֵק מִבֵּין רַגְלָיו, עַד כִּי-יָבֹא שִׁילֹה, וְלוֹ יִקְּהַת עַמִּים. 10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, as long as men come to Shiloh (or when Shiloh comes); and unto him shall the obedience of the peoples (of the world) will be.
יא אֹסְרִי לַגֶּפֶן עִירֹה, וְלַשֹּׂרֵקָה בְּנִי אֲתֹנוֹ; כִּבֵּס בַּיַּיִן לְבֻשׁוֹ, וּבְדַם-עֲנָבִים סוּתֹה. 11 Binding his foal (or his City) unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washeth his garments in wine, and his vesture in the blood of grapes;
יב חַכְלִילִי עֵינַיִם, מִיָּיִן; וּלְבֶן-שִׁנַּיִם, מֵחָלָב. {פ} 12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk. {P}

The gematriah of Wine (YaYiN) is 70 referring to how long David's or Mashiach's City, Yerushalayim, would have to age before Mashiach reigns there....70 years. Now even though only Western Yerushalayim was in Israel's hands for its first 19 years, it was still Israel's capital and the centerpiece of its founding national anthem.

Of course you might argue that one should add the 19 additional years onto 5778 which would therefore take Mashiach a full three Shmittah cycles to prove himself. 49 years from 1967 when Yerushalayim was unified until now + another 21 years. That would take us past 5790 which according to the Sefer HaLeshem is the last year during which Techiyat HaMeitim must start already...., but it looks like he is coming (hu ba) presently. I will explain this with regards to this third stage Aliyat Har HaBayit. continued.....

Each of the previous two stages of Aliyah, Stages One and Two, IMMEDIATELY kicked off the Aliyot associated with that stage. 1. Aliyah to Eretz Yisrael from 5678 onwards and 2. Aliyah to a United Yerushalayim from 5727 onwards. There is no reason to believe that something will soon happen to initiate Stage 3, Aliyat Har HaBayit, to kick off the Messianic Era. But there is a big difference this time between this Aliyat Har HaBayit and the previous two stages. NO ONE IS MOVING ONTO HAR HABAYIT EXCEPT FOR G-D HIMSELF! Therefore the Aliyah in stage 3 is totally a spiritual Aliyah in terms of who will live on Har HaBayit. In the previous two Aliyot, we lived and continue to live in the places to where we have made Aliyah. In this case in Stage 3, the Aliyah is 100% spiritual. It is physical in that one has to actually "go up" to the Temple Mount to do Aliyat Har HaBayit, but we would not be going up, in this case, to live out our physical lives. So HOW this mass Aliyah actually takes place will be a totally spiritual event or series of events beginning...imminently.

Also once we initiate this Aliyat Har HaBayit through the rectification of Netzach with regard to this Aliyah, how will HaShem Himself see to it that the undesirable elements that are up on Har HaBayit get booted off Har HaBayit in order to rectify His Hod (His Glory)?? Think about it. This is why we are at the End.

By the way, I left the following comment on a well known blog discussing the Nibiru phenomenon. Is it real or is it a sham? I specifically asked two questions. If this Nibiru phenomenon is being presented as a natural phenomenon in that there is a dwarf star of tremendous mass making either 360 year or 3600 year orbits around the Sun, we should be able to gravitationally detect its presence.

How do you swear thousands of astronomers throughout the world to secrecy, even those who do not work for govt. observatories?

How does such a massive object orbit the sun without showing up as a "fudge factor" in Kepler's laws of planetary orbits? The orbits of the planets in our Solar System follow precise orbits, all which point to a unitary massive gravitational force at the center of the Solar system a.k.a. The Sun. In a binary star system which is being proposed here, the orbits of the planets in our solar system would be significantly disturbed by a "tidal force" in the direction of this dwarf star. Why do Kepler's three laws of planetary motion show no sign of such a Tidal force? His laws have stood for 400 years showing fairly convincingly that there is only one object at the center of our Solar System with Mass M and several objects revolving around the center with small masses m(1) and m(2) etc. so that G x M x m(n)/ r squared = m(n) x V squared/ r. This is the equation saying that the centripetal acceleration toward the center mass (M) follows a by and large circular or elliptical orbit around the large mass, the Sun. We are assuming here that there are no tidal forces on the planets from an external "dark force" that would emanate from a dwarf star.

So from this we see that m(n) completely cancels out leaving
G x M/ r = V squared
or G x M = V squared x r
Now V the Velocity is also equal to 2 x pi x r / T where T is the Period or time it takes for the planet to make one revolution. So plug in that we get: G x M = (2 x pi x r/ T) squared x r or
G x M = (4 x pi squared x r squared/ T squared) x r

From this we move all the constants over to the left or right and we get Kepler's famous 3rd Law of gravitational motion of planets around a unitary star: G x M(sun)/ (4 x pi squared) = r cubed/ T squared. Or his famous result:

r cubed/ T squared = constant. Now the last time I checked all 8 or 9 planetary orbits in our solar system get the same constant!! Please explain the discrepancy between your proposal about Nibiru's existence and the observed result of studying planetary motions around the Sun for 400 years following Kepler's three laws.

I am sure you have thought this through. I would just like to see your reasoning. Hopefully we will get a scientific response soon. Again we are talking about a physical phenomenon called a binary star system where we should be able to gravitationally detect the presence of a binary partner to our Sun by studying the orbits of the 8 or 9 planets (depending on who one defines a planet) around the Sun. And this question does allow for the existence of another planet in the Kuiper Belt beyond Neptune or even Pluto. We will see if we get an answer. Thanks.

They are the Walking Dead. The World now is full of them. About 2/3rds of Mankind qualifies. 1/3 still have kept their heads out of the spiritual sewer and are still suffering for their sins in this world because they have a place in Olam HaBa.

Actually on this matter though, believe it or not, there is still hope until Rosh HaShanah. You see, those who have fallen during this year 5776 below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah have a chance to repent through suffering until Rosh HaShanah 5777. The decree of spiritual death only comes down to neshamot, human souls, once per year on Rosh HaShanah, the First of Tishrei. So until Rosh HaShanah 5777, those who were still spiritually alive last Rosh HaShanah 5776 but are spiritually dead as of right now, still have a few months to repent, but because of where those souls are in the scheme of things right now, that 1/3 of humanity will have to undergo plagues.

As the Vilna Gaon said about Gog UMagog, 1/3 will die, 1/3 will suffer great plagues, and 1/3 will suffer more mildly or will survive without suffering from a great plague. The 1/3 that will die will be those souls who had fallen below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah BEFORE Rosh HaShanah 5776. The 1/3 that will suffer from plagues will be those who have just recently fallen below Mem Tet Shaarei tumah, after Rosh HaShanah 5776, who can still be redeemed with intense suffering before Rosh HaShanah 5777. And the other 1/3 are who they have always been, the beinonim and the tzaddikim in this world....

This Summer will be more than pretty interesting, I believe, much more than that. By the way, the final Din on Olam HaZeh will then be pronounced on Hoshana Rabbah 5777 if this turns out to be true. The Olam HaZeh aspect of Din always comes AFTER the Olam HaBa aspect of Din during Tishrei. The Olam HaBa din is decides on Rosh HaShanah (1st of Tishrei at the New Moon of the 7th month, the month of The Scales of course) while the Olam HaZeh Din is decided on Hoshana Rabba, the 7th day of Sukkot, 20 days later six days after the full moon for that month. The Final Din over who makes it into Yemot HaMashiach will therefore be decided at that time. This is my b'itah analysis based on what the Ga'on said over 220 years ago and based on all of our other sources. How this will be reflected by wars in the world is impossible to figure out in advance.

Well back to the bowels of the over 300 comments on the previous post: The Jewish People here in Eretz Yisrael have been hanging on to Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah (-49) either since WW1 or since the Shoah, most likely since the Shoah. With the Grace of G-d and His protection we are STILL hanging on at -49 waiting to be redeemed. But we had to wait until the last Great exceptional Edomite nation in the world to arrive at -50. Last year American Pharoah kicked off the summer winning the Triple Crown. That is when America arrived at -49, but alas now that horses are dying in the Preakness stakes and because of Donald Trump's shlichut for the Middle third of American culture to bring America down below -49, America has arrived at -50. It will be official by the time of the "Golden State" California Primary on June 7th. So congratulations you in America beat us to the sewer. We are still hanging on at -49, and America is at -50. So, You won the race to the sewer, and so did those dead horses in the Preakness by the way. So now that Caesaria spiritually lies in ruin, Yerushalayim can spiritually be rebuilt. It is your choice in some instances to remain in the fleshpot in America..... as long as that might last. hard to tell for sure. But when it goes (and if you have decided to stay of your own volition), a nightmare might begin.

A commenter, Dan G. on the previous post, pointed out that the Amaleq moment will be reached on July 4th this Summer, the 240th anniversary of American independence since Amaleq = 240. So does Dollar, that is a dollar without fear of G-d or Trust in G-d. Neither Trump, nor Sanders, nor the Arkansas HillyBillies fear G-d. So the words on the Dollar dealing with trust in G-d mean nothing now. The combined choice of the American voters is one of those three jokers, and you are telling me that America is still better?? Really??? I would simply argue with Dan that in reality the Amaleq moment will be reached on the Hebrew date of America's founding (not the Gregorian date), the 17th of Tamuz which is the Shabbat after the Trumpian Convention in Cleveland. I think by July, they will rename the Republican Party, Trump's party since neither he nor his supporters really knows what he stands for from one week to the next. Rage and anti-globalism are the only consistent themes of the Trumpian candidacy. So you can be an anti-globalist 1. who upholds America as a unique nation under G-d and under its superb Constitution or 2. an anti-globalist who wants his followers to be as filthy rich as he is and who knows diddly squat about the Constitution. The former was Ted Cruz, and the chosen latter one wants to invite you off the street to use the bathrooms of the opposite sex in his New York City and Atlantic City? properties. So good luck...but as I just mentioned, you really don't have an option anymore anyway. You have -50 vs. -50 vs. -50. Maybe you should check out the Libertarian.

There was proof of the earth wobbling. The compass North is no longer the north we once knew, the needle points I think westerly. There is the Pole shift. I saw a depiction of how the magnetosphere reversed itself because of the pull from a much stronger 'object'. I'm not a scientist, but have been following what I believe are valid websites that explain all this as they discover these things. Reb Menachem is dedicated to warning everyone about this phenomenon. There is definitely something out there. NASA and whoever have been over zealous with the chemtrails clouding up our skies and air with their toxic mixture. I read about where the substance comes from. There is much more, and I have posted about some of it on my blog. As I understand things, there is a separate "system" call it Nibiru, that is in an orbit that passes our sun and moon close to earth. What happens at that point is up to HaShem. But as some explain it (also Reb Menachem) there is the possibility of disrupting the earth via volcanos, floods, and other disaster scenarios. They predict 2/3 of population will disappear. Rabbi Glazerson has published Torah Codes containing Nibiru. The US govt has been aware of this for several years but has been keeping a tight lid on it because of other intentions. Nibiru is a stick being used by HaShem to get people to do teshuva. But as you know there is too much evil. Also, Rabbi Winston has created another timeline chart showing how very close we are to events that must play out before 6000 (year 2040). What will really occur is up to HaShem. You and I know that. However something is occurring! The events in America and Israel are not for nothing. There is very much going on and we are witnessing it before our eyes. But how it is interpreted is up to the wisest among us. Some or all of the Gadol Gedolim, know about this Kochav Yaakov (?) but are holding back - as I understand it.

However, my son has a message about Mashiach OUT OF THE BLUE - STATING THAT PEOPLE MAY NOT HEAR IT AND THEY WILL NOT GET READY FOR MASHIACH! - around the 8:30 mark. Now I believe this was straight from HaShem! as he told me that his rebbe did NOT mention moshiach in the story when he was telling it in his cheder. Do listen as you work. He is so adorable and his story is so captivating.

Hi Reb Bar Leib,
Thanks for your posts which are great and I often wait for whith great expectations!
Did you notice this incredible news coming yesterday ?

So, Bibi is saying three things here :
1 He has sephardic origins
2 he his from the Vilna Gaon's descendants
3 all jewish are brothers.
All of this the day before lag baomer, which is Hod shebeHod in the count of Omer if i'm right.

Now we know the GRA considered he was the Machiah ben Yossef of his time, and his great student he sent to Eretz Israel in the beginning 1800's to rebuild Yreushalaïm, the Gaon Rabbi Hillel of Shklov Rivlin is himself the greatt grandfather of Reuven Rivlin...

What is crazy, is that the day before (on tuesday), in our shul here in Paris France we received Rabbi Shlomo Amar, former Richon leTzion, and he gave our Rav Cohen and I his berakha for we are now traducing in french the sefer Kol Hator from the GRA, and written by Rabbi Hillel Rivlin.
As you know, the main purpose of the KolHator is to deal with Machiah ben Yossef issues.

I hope you can put all this together, since it's all about the times of redemption,
I have the intuition that Beitah (when the time comes) is now moving into Ahishena (I will accelerate the Gueoula)

Netanyahu patrilineally is a Levi. We have discussed that before when dealing with the Yichus of the last PM of the lowly State before Mashiach comes according to Zecharia 12. From Zecharia 12: He IS from the House of Natan, and he IS a Levi. And either on his mother's or his father's side, he is from Mishpachat Shimi ben Geira too (most likely on his mother's side).

Hi again,

Thank you Neshama, yes there are many "coincidences" those last days !.
By the way I completely forgot to mention my name : Maurice (from Paris).

Reb Dov, regarding Bibi's ascent, I meant something like : if the GRA was Machiah ben Yossef in his time, and Bibi is one of his descendant, probably a sparkle of GRA's neshama is in Bibi, who could be the Machiah ben Yossef of our time ?...

Idem for Rabbi Hillel de Shklov and Reuven Rivlin (and ? again).

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Gotya Maurice, yes, many commentators on Zecharia 12 mention that the last PM of the lowly state described there who is stabbed to death, has the spark of Mashiach ben Yosef in him. So yes, it is very possible what you say since one's family tree does branch out a lot, and the yichus to Yosef and to Binyamin along with Ephraim and Menashe, as far as inheriting their traits is concerned, is more often than not matrilineal. We learn about Malkhut Yosef from Yehoshua bin Nun who only birthed daughters and had no sons. We learn about Malkhut Binyamin from Esther who bore Dariyavush of Persia. And we learn about yerushah to women from Tzelophchad of the Tribe of Menashe. In each case yerushah or malkhut is passed on through the X chromosome and not the Y chromosome. This seems to be the case for Bnai and Bnot Rachel and the Bnai Osnat as opposed to the Bnai Leah whose yichus is invariably patrilineal.

Thank you so much Reb Dov, I was sure you could link the points together !
So Malkhout Yossef would pass through the fathers... Great !!!

But what about Bibi is also sephardic (apart from all political calculations) ?

I remember a tradition that explained that the Askhenazim represent Yossef and Sephardim represent Yehouda, at a global level (it was connected with galout from the horban of the 1St temple and 2nd one)

So, if we push it forward, it could let a little space for Bibi to potentially be from Yossef + Yehouda...So maybe even a potential Machiah ben David (potential, if he reveals, maybe doing techouva like Yehouda did) ?

To be honest, I would not bet much on this, yet Hakadosh baroukh Hou is used to surprising everybody whis His plans, just remember David and Ruth from Moav while moavim men were not allowed ton convert to judaïsm)

Food for thought on this great day, we should pray Hashem by Rashbi's merit to see the gueoula shelema with our own eyes !

Breaking Israel News: “Judaism holds that a name is a powerful aspect of a person’s identity. Gematria, a method of Hebrew numerology, is commonly used as a method to understand how one fits into the divine plan. A glimpse into what numerologists have said about US President Barack Obama may reveal some uncomfortable truths, or simply confirm what we already suspect.

Torah scholars Joel Gallis and Dr. Robert Wolf, who taught the Bible for almost two decades, are experts in making connections through numerology. They wrote extensively about Obama in their blog, Redemption 5768, during Obama’s first term, and many of their conclusions are still quoted by Jewish thinkers today.”

The findings:

The Gematria for Bernie Sanders’ name (636) also hints at one of his character traits. It is equal to וַיֵּלְכוּ אַחֲרֵי אֱלֹהִים אֲחֵרִים (“And they went after other gods”).

The Gematria of Donald Trump points to one of his traits is (424) is the equivalent of כְּמוֹ-נָחָשׁ like a snake which is also remarkable to note that (424) is the Gematria of “Messiah for the House of David” (משיח בן דוד). What do you get when you combine Messiah and snake?

The Gematria of Barack Hussein Obama (בּרק חוסיין אובּאמה) 501, is equal to the word ( יִּשְׁמְעֵאלִּים) Ishmaelites or as Bereshis 16:12 says: “A wild ass of a man”.

The Gematria of Hillary (הילרי), Rodham (רודהם), and Clinton, (קלינטון) 255 is equal to the word for a female from the nation of (עמלקיה) Amalek.

Could Amalek could well be a female? (Shemos 17:16).

Alex says that Trump is a Go'el of some sort. My L-rd. And what does it mean that Trump will stay pure? How can he save the Republic if he is completely uneducated in the US Constitution. So he is a populist, and I am to assume that human decency is popular in America? NOT! Since someone who is a populist is by definition popular, then Trump will re-establish America as a great country by getting back to America as a paragon of human virtues? NOT! And human beings throughout the planet will now identify with this American populist's hatred of globalism since he obviously represents their values. Doubtful, but it is obvious that Alex thinks that citizens of the planet identify with American populism. Ok, Done.

Moshiach Ben Yosef can be a person from any tribe or it does not have to be an individual who will fight the enemies of Israel. Doing guessing games is silly. The anointing of Melech Moshiach (MBD) will be a Divine one.

Everything that I have written about Trump is for the public record. All the facts are true. When discussing the fate of a nation in the national election based on whom they are choosing, using facts to discuss the situation is therefore not lashon hara, and only if the facts that I am using are untrue, is there an issue of Motzi Shem Ra (slander). Because a democratic election requires discussion about the facts as publicly known, there is no issue of lashon hara when discussing the publicly known facts surrounding a public figure, (again as long as the facts known about him are true and not hearsay). In addition there is the issue of whether such a man might be dangerous to the life or limb of good people living under a govt. that he would establish. If one believes that there is a dangerous situation developing, one is definitely permitted to point this out as a warning to those who might elect him or even to those who would have to live under the govt. of what could be a dangerous man. Again for this additional reason, there is no lashon hara.

Yet this blog is NOT about talking about Donald Trump for political purposes. Part of the reason for discussing Trump is to prove that as 2/3rds of America falls below Mem Tet Shaarei tumah because of Trump's leadership in that direction for 1/3 of the population, the 2/3rds condition for Mashiach's coming b'itah is then met. Since at least 2/3rds of Caesaria spiritually lies in ruin (more than a majority in a Republic or a Democracy) with "the barbarians at the spiritual Gate of Rome" as lead by D. Trump, this allows for Yerushalayim to reach the next crucial step of the process of being spiritually rebuilt. It is simply the spiritual equation given by Chazal, that as Caesaria lies in ruin, Yerushalayim is rebuilt. At this point this is the primary reason to discuss Trump on this blog because he has successfully brought one third of American culture, while on Shlichut from HaShem. to bring that culture from -49 to -50. Therefore discussing Trump's role in this process is unavoidable when discussing the End of Days which is what this blog is all about. Other than that, G-d is in control over who wins or even if America simply disintegrates as its various G-dless factions go to war with each other before November or even before the end of the Summer, since the Shekhinah has truly departed now from the national life of the USA as a result of the results of the Republican Primaries. The fact that the Shekhinah has now departed from American national life and the reasons for that are also subjects of this blog. Other than those reasons, there is no other reason to discuss the American electoral process or Donald Trump anymore. The problem is that these other reasons mentioned above keep coming up, making the discussion of Trump an imperative.

Shavua tov, and Good night.

One last thing: I do agree that the focus of this blog should NOT be about Donald Trump anymore, now that he has succeeded in his shlichut to bring the middle third of America down below -49. So most of the Comments on this particular post have been about many other topics, particularly the ones that I wrote about in the post. I would like to keep it that way, with the inevitable necessity to write a Comment or two about the spiritual death of the United States where Trump's appointment as the Republican nominee has given him an integral but undesirable role. The Great War between the Lion with Eagles wings from Daniel 7 (the rugged individualists as lead by Trump) and the Four-headed leopard Globalists (as lead by Obama and the Arkansas HillyBillies) is coming. It will be both an American Civil War and a World War fought primarily in the United States. These two forces will destroy each other simultaneously leaving the three ribbed bear ("The We Want More Stuff Crowd" as lead by Russia and Iran on the world stage but as lead by Bernie Sanders in the American theatre) as the surviving force that tries to take over the world by overrunning Istanbul. How this happens is impossible to predict in advance, but Trump's role as leading the spiritual faction of the Lion with Eagle's Wings (rugged individualists) against the Globalists and the Socialists is now also inevitable. And surely we will talk about that when the time comes too.

Either you don't get it, which is possible, or you are just sarcastically playing with the word "heart". We don't mean - "and you shall not follow your heart.... etc." in the sense of desires. We mean: a good heart, as in CHESED , as in the first Sefirah of Avraham Avinu, and as in GEVURAH, the second Sefirah of Yitshak, He is a man of chessed, of charity, of kindness, and also of good courage. That kind of a heart, in case you didn't get the meaning. "People" can get so entangled in their thought processes that they don't understand the most basic human concepts. There is heart, as in desires, and then there is heart, as in a good solid brave person. I mean the second.

Donald Trump has a good heart, period. And that's all that counts. The rest is commentary, hair splitting, sophistry. Not necessary to understand basic human qualities. I am sure a lot of your readers will understand exactly what I mean.

We have even discussed his (Trump's) Chessed previously along with a lot of liberals with really compassionate hearts, in the previous two posts in Comments. We spoke about a Mishneh in Keilim which describes the situation of which Sefirot and which aspects of HaShem's Creation are Mekabel Tumah (receptors of spiritual impurity) and which are not. It turns out that a Ba'al Chessed is a great midah but a Ba'al Chessed is "mekabel Tumah" if he does not balance his Chessed with fear of G-d or G-d's Din (His Judgement). So simply being a Ba'al Chessed alone does not prevent someone from falling to the lowest levels of Tumah. It is why Creation on the first day of the Creation week produced Darkness which is a receptor for tumah while the Creation of the split between the Upper and Lower Waters on Day 2 is NOT a receptor for tumah. To continue, things created on the third day of the week are mekabel tumah (dry land and vegetation), but things created on Day 4, the luminaries in Heaven are not mekabel Tumah. This has to do with the Sefirah of Netzach. The fifth day is a mixed bag. The Fish are NOT mekabel tumah, but the shell of eggs ARE mekabel tumah. So are the wings of dead birds. This has to do with the Sefirah of Hod. And animals from the 6th Day including Man are mekabel tumah when they die. Man has the special privilege of being mekabel tumah while he is still alive because of his midah of free will! So from above the key to a healthy society that does not distance itself from the L-rd is that Chessed MUST be tempered with a fear of Heavenly Judgement for doing wrong like 1. boasting that one could shoot someone dead on 5th Avenue and not lose any followers. Or 2. opening up one's bathrooms on one's property to patrons of the opposite sex to what is written on the door of the bathroom, thereby scaring the heck out of women in the bathroom when a guy with a long beard walks into the stalls because he feels like a woman on any particular day.

When one can't establish a bit of Heavenly law and order on his properties or when talking about snuffing out innocent human life in a jocular way, even one's Chessed is mekabel tumah allowing that person to fall from -49 (chessed that is in chessed) to -50 (The Abyss). I hope this clarifies.

It matters Neshama because Trump's shlichut to bring the Middle third of American culture from -49 to the Abyss has succeeded. Edom's world has now been rid of its last truly exceptional nation where 2/3rds of that exceptional nation had not yet fallen below -49. But now at the end of 49 years, it finally has happened. So at this point in time 2/3rds of Mankind has reached a point of being irredeemable the b'itah condition at the end of Zecharia 13 unless repentance is done by some, who have just fallen into the Abyss, before Rosh HaShanah 5777. In short the 2/3rds condition is one of G-d's stated conditions for Mashiach to show up b'ITAH!! And only now has that condition been met during Sefirat HaOmer of this Yovel year. The World has reached its spiritual benchmark of there being no collective merit left in it, and Caesaria aka Western Civilization spiritually lies in ruin. So while we here in Israel sit at -49 collectively, The World of Edom is now at -50. They beat us to the sewer.

So Yerushalayim will now be spiritually rebuilt. But first we will turn the page from the end of Zecharia 13 to the majestic chapter of Zecharia 14. So almost on cue the nations of the world which are 2/3rds reprobate consisting basically of all Mankind will now gather against Yerushalayim to divide it so that HaShem can glorify His Name over Har HaBayit by splitting The Mt. of Olives directly across the Valley from it in two, in order to repair the damage of His Name being profaned during our 2000 year Galut.

The Yovel cycle based on Yesod that is in Yesod seems that it was launched 49 years ago with the Yesod War (the 6 Day War) which started on Yesod that is in Yesod with the destruction of the Egyptian airforce in Gaza and in the Sinai. At least that is how I recollect it starting. Two weeks earlier Nasser had closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping to its Port of Eilat. That was already an Act of War that had made a pre-emptive strike possible. The first two days of that war defeated Mitzraim. The next two days captured Yesha and Yerushalayim from Yarden, and the last two days of that war captured the Golan Heights. QED, with G-d's mighty arm, Quickly and Easily Done.

It is interesting that all the territory gained in Yesod was given up to Mitzraim or to the on the ground hooligans in Gaza over the last 49 years. This has not been the case with the territories gained starting with Ichud Yerushalayim on the third day of that war. This would seem to indicated that we have left the era of Mashiach ben Yosef from the previous Yovel cycle and have entered the era of Mashiach ben David at the beginning of this Yovel cycle, the Era of Malkhut. (but there is no way of really knowing for sure until we reach Shavuot and reflect on what happens and what has previously happened.)

6/02/2016 1:36 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Leah: The quote is based on the Zohar in VaEira about Yishma'el's tie to the Land of Israel because of his brit milah. After Hadrian HaRasha crushed the Bar Kochba revolt in 135ce, Eretz Yisrael was made Judenrein for about 400 years, from around the year 220ce after the death of Yehudah HaNassi. Count 400 years and one arrives to the year 620ce. Then the Arabs came in the year 638ce and conquered Yerushalayim and basically controlled Yerushalayim for 26 Yovel cycles (1300 years - 2 years for every century because each Yovel cycle is at this juncture 49 year cycles. So each double Yovel Century is 98 years.) So the year 644 was a Yovel year, a 50th year which was also the first year of the next Yovel cycle. It was the 20th Yovel from Ezra HaSofer who re-established the Yovel cycles at the beginning of the 2nd Temple period. So add 26 x 49 years to 644ce = 644 + 1274 years = 1918 ce which is the Yovel year 5678 according to the Jewish calendar. In the Fall of the year 5678 the Ottoman Turks lost Yerushalayim to David Lloyd Gog of Great Britain. And the Muslim's 26 Yovel cycle rule over Yerushalayim had come to an end.

I would suggest reading this:

especially this part from the Zohar: And Sarai was barren; she had no child." Woe unto that. Woe unto that time when Hagar delivered Yishmael. But Sarah gave birth after Yishmael was born, and she had a son from a holy seed. Hence, why do you say, "Woe"? Indeed, woe unto that time for because Sarah was delayed, it is written, "And Sarai said unto Abram, '... Please come to my maid.'" This is why it was the right time for Hagar to inherit her mistress, Sarah, and Hagar had a son from Avraham. And Avraham said, "Oh that Yishmael might live before You." And even though the Creator told him about Yitzchak, Avraham clung to Yishmael until the Creator replied to him, "And as for Yishmael, I have heard you." Afterwards he was circumcised and came into the holy covenant before Yitzchak came to the world. [Yishmael was the offspring of Avraham. Being the first born, in some spiritual way, he had a certain natural claim as the rightful inheritor of Avraham. However, he should not have been so important; after all he was the son of a maid-servant. But Avraham gave him a bracha and the Almighty affirmed it. From now on Bnei Yishmael were to play a major role in world history.]

6/03/2016 1:33 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

For four hundred years the Heavenly spirit of the sons of Yishmael stood and asked before the Creator. He told him, "Do those who were circumcised have a part in Your name?" The Creator told him, "Yes." He told him, "But Yishmael was circumcised, why has he no share in you like Yitzchak?" He replied, "One was circumcised properly and perfectly, and the other was not. Moreover, they adhere to Me properly for eight days, and the others are as far as several days away from Me" [Arabs perform circumcision much later, even as old as 13, just like Yishmael]. The appointed minister told him, "And yet, since he was circumcised, will he not have a good reward for it?"

Woe unto that time when Yishmael was born in the world and was circumcised. What did the Creator do with regards to the complaint of Yishmael's minister? He removed the sons of Yishmael from adhesion with the upper realm and gave them a part in the holy land below, because of the circumcision in them.

And the children of Yishmael are destined to rule over the holy land for a long time, when it is empty of everything, as their circumcision is empty without perfection. And they will detain the children of Israel from returning to their places until the merit of the sons of Yishmael is complemented.

[This Zohar amazing in its accuracy, is simply astonishing. As a result of the Roman oppression, approximately 200 years after the Churban, the Jewish presence in Eretz Yisroel dwindled to almost nothing. 400 years later (approximately the year 650) the Arabs took possession of the Holy Land. They ruled there for the next 1300 years (until 1948) while the land was totally desolate.

a profoundly powerful monologue/interview on the Glenn Beck Show of author Brad Thor The interview/monologue has gotten Glenn Beck into trouble because Thor seems to insinuate that the only way to stop Donald Trump from trashing his Constitutional authority is for "a Patriot to take some sort of action". The main thrust of this interview is NOT to suggest assassination of a political candidate, but to suggest the helplessness of dealing with a budding fascist who is elected as POTUS.

From the end of days perspective, the Globalists are a more all encompassing evil than what Thor refers to as the "Orange Raccoon" who oversteps his constitutionally granted authority as President. Either way, America is Doomed. The Zombie Socialist Bernie Sanders, the Globalist Arkansas HillyBillies, or the Budding Tyrant who wants to make America Great Again. At -50 there are no good choices. And for America that is the key now. So I actually disagree with Thor. As bad as Trump will be, the Globalists are even worse. And Sanders simply represents both death in this world and in the world to come. So the only option is a budding tyrant. Not a good show.

I have just accessed your blog, and it is finally becoming good again. Mazel Tov. You have disconnected yourself from the root of evil, the Globalists, and that is very good, and to your credit. I am glad you are finally seeing through their deception. By attacking a HUMAN - Donald Trump might be full of faults, but he is HUMAN - they are trying to brush over their DEVILISH root. They are the agents of the Satan personified - and I am not kidding; just think of all their experiments at the CERN, trying to attract the spirit of Satan MIN HAAMAKIM. Think of all their satanic worships, their depravation, their pedophilias, their animal and probably also human sacrifices, their enslavement of humanity, their thievery, their endless murders: the Globalists' root is the angel of Esav, Samael, whose worldly seat is in Rome. How can you compare a potential egomaniac dictator with THAT? So I am glad you are finally seeing the light.

By the way, even Alex Jones, whom you think I worship ( I really don't, I just appreciate his candid statements and his research ), warned Trump verbatim last week. He told him that if he disappoints people, if he betrays them, he will be remembered forever for that evil.

I really appreciate this Zohar that you discussed. It's so profound, and so encouraging.

In the 73rd year, THAT IS, SEVEN YEARS AFTER MESSIAH BEN JOSEPH WAS REVEALED, all the kings of the world shall assemble in the great city of Rome. And the Holy One, blessed be He, will shower fire and hail and meteoric stones upon them, until they are wiped out from the world. And only those kings who did not go to Rome will remain in the world. And they shall return and wage other wars.

Don't make mistake, Yishmael is today stronger than ever. The battles between Yishmael and Edom is yet to come, the outcome is the defeat of Edom, practically the destruction of Western civilisation, America and Western Europe. Don't ignore Hezekiel and Yeshayahu prophesies about the devastation of the Holy Land where will survive only the remnant of Yisrael, then Mashiach comes. Remember, there is Erev Rav among Yisrael, that remnant from Mitzraim is unable to get rid of Yetzer Hara.
The current Gay Pride Parade in Israel will attract severe consequences from השם.

Leah: I did not say that the Jihadis would not make advancements in taking over the World. It is only that in Yerushalayim the efforts of the Jihadis will be and will continue to bear no fruit or success, except to spill more innocent blood which is something that they can do with one ax or one knife or one sub-machine gun. Yishmael will continue to behave like the spoiled brat adolescent wild man that he is even if he can no longer conquer the Holy City. It is for this reason that Yishmael has enlisted Edom in the effort to squash Yisrael's Messianic hopes. In short they have to go to Paris or Washington to unify the forces of Mankind against Jewish controlled Yerushalayim. continued....

This is why the story of the 13 x 98yr centuries = just under 1300 years is incomplete if we simply stop in the year 5678 (Fall of 1917), the actual year that Yishmael lost control of the Holy City on Erev Chanukah when Allenby's (PM D. Lloyd Gog's) troops marched into the City. You see, Yishmael did precede the announcement that Yitzchak would be born by 13 years. Yishmael accepted his Milah two days before the announcement of Michael the Archangel to Avraham and Sarah when Avraham circumcised himself along with all members of his household. Avraham greeted all three angels coming to the entrance of his tent while he was in the pain of Brit Milah on the third day (or two days after) his Milah. Yishmael accepted Milah at that time because he wanted to be a member of Avraham's holy household. Michael's announcement was that precisely one year later during Pesach, Yitzchak would be born and that he should be circumcised on the 8th day. So in reality, Yishmael was 14 years old, one year older, when Yitzchak was born. The year of Suspense from the Announcement of Michael to a 99 year old Avraham that to a 89 yr old Sarah there would be born a son, until the actual birth of Yitzchak when Sarah was 90 therefore corresponds to another 98 years. So that takes us from the Yovel year 5678 to the Yovel year 5776, our present year to "commemorate" the actual birth of Yitzchak. During this entire time span of 98 years while Yishmael has not been in control of Eretz Yisrael, Edom at times has been in control such as from 1917 until 1948. And even now Edom will try to divide Yerushalayim because Yishmael no longer has a blessing to control the City based on his own merit of imperfect Brit Milah. So as of right now, we are in a sensitive time between the Birth of Yitzchak from whom Edom also descends along with Ya'akov until the Brit Milah on the 8th Day, 7 days later, when Edom no longer has merit here in Yerushalayim. Doing a quick calculation of how many years does that 7 day period correspond to we get the following: (7 days/ 365 days per Avrahamic year) x 98 of our yrs/ Avrahamic yr = 1.879 years until the actual Brit Milah when Edom no longer has any right to contest our control of Eretz Yisrael since Edom does NOT do Brit Milah at any age. So 1.879 years is One year and 10 1/2 months from either Pesach 5776 or more likely from Chanukah 5776 since it was on Chanukah or Erev Chanukah 98 years earlier in 1917 when Yishmael's brachah to unilaterally control Eretz Yisrael ended. Just from this calculation we see that Gog UMagog's challenge to Jewish (Ya'akov's) control of Yerushalayim should "miraculously" end b'itah 1 year and 10 1/2 months from Chanukah 5776 when the time of the Brit Milah of Yitzchak is actually reached since at that time Yishmael had already lost his unitary brachah for sole control of the Holy City 100 years ago, and at that time, the non-participant in the Mitzvah of Brit Milah, Edom, will have no claim over the future of the Holy City in Shamayim. 1 year and 10 1/2 months after Chanukah of 5776 is Tishrei of 5778. This is a raw b'itah calculation done without prejudice and helps to explain why I believe that even though Ben David comes THIS YEAR in the potential Yovel year 5776, he will not prove himself as Mashiach until Tishrei of 5778.

EM Yeru.: You made a slight error when looking it up in the Zohar. I wrote VeEira, NOT VaYeira. It is in the Zohar on parshat VaEira in Sefer Shemot. The section that you quoted from the Zohar is in VaYeira p. 119 from Sefer Bereishit.

Also, the answer apparently lies in a a Qabbalistic Sefer called HaLeshem which categorically states that Techiyat HaMeitim or the Era of Techiyat HaMeitim (Resurrection of the Dead) must begin 210 years before the year 6000 because of the 210 years that Yisrael spent retrieving holy sparks in Mitzraim. Rav Pinchus Winston who is an expert on that Sefer explains this in detail in his books and on his Sha'ar HaNun and websites. Since the Era of Techiyat HaMeitim must begin by the year 5790 according to the Leshem, the Era of Yemot HaMashiach (a separate era in its own right) must begin two Shmittah cycles beforehand....That would be now.

Also just like you don't bring on Shabbat precisely at sunset on Friday night by advancing Shabbat into Yom HaShishi, HaShem is bringing on the Great Shabbat of the 7th Millennium after Mincha Gedolah (the Great Mincha) of the 6th Millennium which was Rosh Chodesh Av 5771.

Another key lies in Psalm 102 with the following verses:

יא מִפְּנֵי-זַעַמְךָ וְקִצְפֶּךָ-- כִּי נְשָׂאתַנִי, וַתַּשְׁלִיכֵנִי. 11 Because of Thine indignation and Thy wrath; for Thou hast taken me up, and cast me away.
יב יָמַי, כְּצֵל נָטוּי; וַאֲנִי, כָּעֵשֶׂב אִיבָשׁ. 12 My days are like a lengthening shadow; and I am withered like grass.
יג וְאַתָּה יְהוָה, לְעוֹלָם תֵּשֵׁב; וְזִכְרְךָ, לְדֹר וָדֹר. 13 But Thou, O LORD, sittest enthroned for ever; and Thy name is unto all generations.
יד אַתָּה תָקוּם, תְּרַחֵם צִיּוֹן: כִּי-עֵת לְחֶנְנָהּ, כִּי-בָא מוֹעֵד. 14 Thou wilt arise, and have compassion upon Zion; for it is time to be gracious unto her, for the appointed time is come.

The the "Days are like a lengthening shadow" are the years immediately following Mincha Gedolah of the 6th Millennium. when we wither like grass. Av 5771 was the third year of the Shmittah cycle before Ben David ba in year 8. According to the Gemorrah it was a year of famine and a horrible lack of rainfall in Eretz Yisrael....which happened to be the case earlier that winter.

Then suddenly our mazal changes because HaShem Who Sits on His Heavenly Throne remembers his Brit with Ya'akov and Yitzchak. In the case of Yitzchak it is his Brit Milah on the 8th day which Edom does not do. And then He Rises and Has Compassion on Tzion, for it is Time (Ait) to be Gracious unto her. The Time (Moed) of her redemption has arrived. Notice the word Ait for "it is time" to be gracious unto her. This is the Time in B'itah for our redemption.

Also, which you forgot to mention is that when Avraham Avinu brought up Yitzchak Avinu to the Akeidah, H' said to Avraham 'take your son', your ONLY son, Yitzchak, and HE had to repeat it twice because Avraham couldn't at first understand that only Yitzchak would be considered his son and, of course, Avraham Avinu's inheritance to him. Avraham sent the other children away with gifts as their inheritance.

Another thing is that it is Edom who made the pact with Yishmael. Even in this modern history, it was England who, in particular, made the oil rich middle east. The West had the power.

Ait LeChen'nah (Time to be Gracious to Her or to Tzion) is also very telling about b'itah described in the Gemorrah Sanhedrin. If Yisrael actually had merit to bring Mashiach early, then HaShem would have done so Achishena, not b'itah (in its time). Since we don't have the collective merit to bring Mashiach, he only comes because of HaShem's Grace based on our undeserved merit. That Grace is called Chein, or leChanen for "to be Gracious"). So this verse intrinsically refers to a Time of Redemption for which we have no merit but for which the Umot HaOlam have no merit either. And the US of America has just recently joined the club of the nations of the world that are worse off spiritually than we are here in Eretz Yisrael....Again someone else will have to speak up for Australia.

Tonight is the 49th anniversary of the 3rd Day of the 6 Day War. On that day, the 28th of Iyar 5727 (June 7th, 1967), Israeli forces united Yerushalayim for the first time under Jewish sovereignty for the first time since the Bar Kochba revolt in 132ce, and on that same day the Israeli Naval forces captured the City of Sharm El Sheikh on the Sinai Peninsula's Red Sea coast. In honor of the lesser known about battle of this very short war, here is Ron Eliran singing his signature song Sharm El Sheikh, Chazarnu Elayich Sheinit....The first time that the IDF captured Sharm El Sheikh was during the Suez Crisis of 1956. It was returned to Egypt within 6 months of capture at that time. After the 6 Day War, Sharm El Sheikh was held by Israel until the peace treaty with Mitzraim was implemented between 1980 and 1981.

See? All the things I said about Trump are true! His great heart, his courage: a man's man.

His wife reminds me of some of those Russian converts I have met who all married Jewish men ( unfortunately very common among Russian Jews: many of them marry Shiksas who later convert to Judaism, or who convert in order to marry. Those men marry fiercely loyal, beautiful, home based women who want nothing more than a home and children, but they are not Jewish). It is no accident that Trump's daughter married a Jew and converted: she fits the bill of a girl raised in a fiercely conservative, elegant home, looking for the kind of man a not too religious liberal Orthodox Jew is: has basically family values, but don't ask him for too much Torah learning; that kind of an Orthodox Jew. This is how Ivanka was raised, and this is the way Melania is too. Which tells me that deep down this is the way Trump is too - which tells me that there is a good chance HE might actually convert to Judaism too at some point in his life; or at least be very sympathetic to the Orthodox Jewish lifestyle. With his Orthodox Jewish grandchildren, raised as Jews, who knows how far the Torah connection might go. I personally believe that Dov's fears regarding Trump are excessive; on the contrary, I think he might do quite a bit of good. It's just a shame that A) so many neo-Nazis support him and B) Clinton might beat him to the game.

Yes, 5765 was our last bona fide Achishena moment, and the baseline for Mashiach ben Yosef to come in 5766 (in accordance with the Zohar VaYeira 119) was for us to simply practice common decency with each other here in Eretz Yisrael in 5765. But We couldn't even do just that! We threw 10,000 holy people out of their homes so that the world would love the Erev Rav Jews who were doing just that, and this was all enabled by Ever Ze'ir Jews who simply wanted 290 million shekel for their yeshivot/seminaries/ Chessed projects. So when it came time to perform the dirty deeds in the Summer of 5765, the studious group turned their backs on what was going on underneath their noses because thinking about the toll of the human suffering that was being foisted upon the Jews of Gaza and the Northern Shomron was affecting their learning. Read the words of the tzaddik Rav Shalom Arush Shlit"a about how learning should not come at the expense of causing others to suffer. You can't get more down and dirty than that. The Satan succeeded where ordinary tzaddikim dare not tread.

Now it is time to cover this old wound with this 11 year old scab and get back to talking about the Final Redemption b'itah, which is basically what we deserve because of how we treated each other in the Summer of 5765.

Now to be fair it was NOT Shas (Sephardi Guardians) who joined in 5765, and even most Chassidim were totally against joining Sharon's govt except for the Rebbe who had a lot to say in UTJ. But the wound can't really heal because the scoundrel who was in charge of UTJ (United torah Judaism) at the time that they decided to join on the 9th or tenth of Tevet 5765 IS STILL IN CHARGE OF THE DEGEL HATORAH FACTION OF THAT VERY PARTY!! So if teshuvah had been done, either he would have publicly apologized for his very public sin, or he would nave been replaced by now by someone who is more circumspect about doing such behavior again.....But the offender is still there as unrepentant as ever! And ya think that Mashaich coming b'itah will be such a picnic with such lack of public decency to repent about something so egregious? So back to covering that wound with an 11 year old scab...

DS: It is becoming more and more obvious that Donald T. is attracting into his following some of the worst dregs of human beings that exist in the United States along with many apparently well meaning "middle of the road" Americans. The reason is obvious. He is taking on the globalists who want to wrest control of American national authority and place it in the control of NAFTA supporting globalists. It is one of the reasons he stresses issues like "The Wall" between the US and Mexico. With such a tall impenetrable wall, NAFTA's objective of one economic entity connecting Canada with Mexico via the United States cannot be met in part because of that impenetrable wall. So since he has fashioned his and his supporters' enemies to be globalists who want to meld America into the NAFTA economic confederation, he has become quite a fervent nationalist himself, and amongst the Nationalist types in America, there are a certain number of National Socialists amongst their ranks. Yes, we might even call them Nazis.

Part of the problem here is that Trump should know this by now. As a matter of fact, I think he has already figured that out based on his responses to Jake Tapper's question about distancing himself from David Duke. Trump intentionally is not being forceful enough in disavowing the support of these dregs because he knows that as a fervent nationalist himself, he cannot politically afford to distance himself from the National Socialist (Nazi) bloc amongst the nationalists that he counts as his supporters. This poses a problem for formerly politically conservative Jews who are searching for an American "political home" in this new alignment of the various types of reprobates. In this case it is the Lion with Eagle's Wings reprobates (The fervent Nationalists) verses the Globalist Four Headed Leopard reprobates. My take is that they won't find such a home in the Trump tent precisely because Trump for his own political benefit will not distance himself fast enough from Jew hating Nazis that he needs as supporters in order to win, even if he is not a Nazi himself of course. All this is part of the new political order below Mem Tet Shaarei tumah. If I were in America, I would see Danger! Danger! flashing before my eyes, and I would be headed for a quick exit letting that American Golden door slap me in the behind.

Couldn't have said it better, as far as exiting the Goldene Medine. However I don't believe that having the neo Nazis support him will affect his mainstream support. The problem is not him, the problem is what America has become, and the intense Jew hatred building up both among the extreme Left and the extreme Right. Shifra Hoffman had warned about this years ago already, I believe Rav Meir Kahane did too. The Soros types sure didn't help the situation; they raise hell in Israel, and all over the world: give the neo Nazis a good reason to hate all Jews. So we are stuck with this bad element which is spreading like wildfire: the white neo Nazis choose Trump, while the black and other minority antisemites choose Clinton or whoever the final Democratic candidate will be. Nobody left in the middle, just more and more Jew haters. So, as you said, slap the door behind you!

Until then, here is a Facebook message about a rally for Meir Ettinger in Beit Shemesh tonight with the added provision that MEIR ETTINGER WILL ACTUALLY BE THERE TONIGHT!! The rally cannot be in Yerushalayim because one of the Administrative detention orders is that Meir cannot come to Yerushalayim for up to 6 months (at least that is what I read.). And as the State legal authorities have declared, Meir and his friends are being persecuted and distanced for the "charge" of longing for the Redemption.

So if you can get to Beit Shemesh this evening at 6pm, maybe I will see you there. Today is the 46th day in the Counting of the Omer.

And like Meir, the Rav did it to bring the Final Redemption with Rachamim at least for the righteous and the beinonim. I can't speak up for the reshayim.

THE DEAL: he Deal
Anyone who regularly reads ‘geula’ blogs, or the posts by the autistics will know that many figures in the Jewish world have been predicting terrible things for the Jewish people for the last decade or so.

But so far, thank God, those predictions have come to naught, despite all the wars, terrorism and intrigue Israel and the world has been caught up in. So what happened?

It’s now common knowledge among many in the Hebrew-speaking frum world that some years’ ago, there was a meeting of the three biggest Tzadikim in the country: The Baba Elazar, Rav Eliezer Berland, and the generation’s leading kabbalist (whose identify I’m not revealing out of respect to him – you’ll see why in a moment.)

These three giants each agreed to take some terrible form of suffering upon themselves, to atone for the sins of Am Yisrael, and let us have the geula the sweet way, without the terrible wars, deaths and suffering that would otherwise be required.
The Baba Elazar took it upon himself to be killed al kidush Hashem – and that’s what occurred a little while later, when he was shockingly stabbed to death in his own waiting room.

Rabbis agree: The Baba Elazar’s death saved Am Yisrael from harsh decrees

The Kabbalist took it upon himself to be exiled from Eretz Yisrael.

And Rav Berland took it upon himself to be slandered so terribly, that he would lose his good name (which is also akin to being ‘murdered’, in many ways.)

For some reason, the Kabbalist left Israel – but couldn’t cope with the ordeal of going into exile, and was forced to return.

Undaunted, Rav Berland took on BOTH decrees: the decree of losing his good name, and also the decree of exile.
Years before he actually fled the country, Rav Berland was hinting to his students (and even telling them outright) that he would have to leave the country for an extended period of time, and that he would be persecuted for a number of years, in order to atone for Am Yisrael.

So many of his students heard him say this first-hand, that when it actually came to pass some years’ later, they already knew what was happening and why. This is one of the main reasons why Rav Berland’s own community have been 100% rock-solid behind him, the last three years.
The Rav’s ‘escape’ from Israel
If we next look at the truly bizarre course Rav Berland’s ‘prosecution’ has taken, we’ll also start to recognize that the whole situation is completely abnormal. For many weeks after the ‘news’ broke, the Rav left his home in Jerusalem, and was living in Beitar Illit, where he gave shiurim to hundreds of people, and received many, many visitors.

The Israeli authorities didn’t arrest him. Why not?

And why, if Rav Berland was simply a fugitive trying to escape justice, did he tell hundreds and even thousands of people where he was going to be, at each stage of his exile?

6/08/2016 11:54 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

If you take a moment to think about these questions, you’ll already start to see that the picture being painted in the media of Rav Berland doesn’t add up.

Later on, when the Rav left Israel to go to Africa (again, HOW did he manage to escape being arrested at the airport, if he wasn’t receiving Divine assistance?) – we saw the same pattern again.

Within hours of him landing in Morocco, in Zimbabwe, in South Africa, in Holland, in South America, hundreds of people had been explicitly told about where he was staying and how to get messages to him, and even, how to fly out to meet him.

Again, does this sound like someone who is:

a) fearful of the authorities or
b) simply trying to escape being brought to justice?

OR, does this sound like someone who knows he has a job to do, but also knows the parameters of that ‘job’ have been predetermined by Hashem, and who is determined to carry on serving Hashem, and his community, to the best of his ability?

When Rav Berland ‘disappeared’ from Holland – despite being under police guard – that was one of the clearest signs that he was still enjoying Divine favor, and able to pull off some out and out miracles.

When people truly are guilty of the terrible crimes being slanderously attributed to Rav Berland, they are very far away from God. God doesn’t do open miracles for people like that.

Throughout his three year exile, Rav Berland has continued to work miracles for literally hundreds of people, and you can hear many of their stories first-hand on the Knishta Hada hotline (mostly in Hebrew), by calling this number: +972-2-587-5777

(Just to add a personal aside here: a few week's ago, I sat next to a woman who's son was suffering from apparently terminal cancer, who asked Rav Berland to intercede on her son's behalf - and he was miraculously cured after a few weeks and left the hospital. I heard this true story first-hand from the mother of the son.)
​The reaction of other Tzadikim
As mentioned, there are unfortunately many scandals in the orthodox world, just as there are in every segment of society these days. Many years’ ago, I worked as a journalist on a Jewish paper, and I experienced my fair share of ‘bent’ Rabbis and the fall-out that came along with them.

Unfortunately, I’ve also had more recent experiences of very damaged individuals who are pretending to be Tzadikim. We live in a very mixed-up world, and not everyone who is a ‘Rabbi’ is a good, upright person.

BUT – when these ‘fake’ Rabbis are revealed for who and what they truly are, their support – especially amongst other religious leaders – usually dries up very fast. And even if they do continue to receive support, it’ll be ‘behind the scenes’ as opposed to being given in a public or open way. (It’s a separate post, but it’s useful to mention here that ‘birds of a feather flock together’ – true Rabbonim are normally connected to other true Rabbonim, and the reverse is unfortunately also true.)

Even after Rav Berland was publicly accused and went into exile, HE HAS ENJOYED UNWAVERING SUPPORT FROM SOME OF THE BIGGEST TRUE TZADIKIM IN THE COUNTRY.

Again, this point cannot be overstated. Tzadikim like Rav Shalom Arush, or Rabbi David Abuchatzeira, are at such a level of holiness that they can literally see straight through into a person’s Neshama.

They know if a person is telling the truth or lying, if they’re truly as good as they look, or not. Both of these Tzadikim – plus many, many more, including Rav David Kook in Tiveria, Rav Matityahu Glazerson, Rav Yitzhak Yosef (son of the late Rav Ovadia) plus Rav Yekutiel Fish, have come out firmly in support of Rav Berland.

If he was truly guilty of the crimes he’s being accused of, this simply wouldn’t be the case.

Do any women agree with Nachman Shalom's account of sexual abuse by Rav Berland on an unknown woman? This is so much bigger than any of us. May the Truth come out. What is too bad is that this case might play out in the laughable system of justice in the lowly MeDINah, where Din has been turned into a dirty word.

Tonight is the 47th day of the Omer. three days until Ma'amad Har Sinai.

The swift response from Hashem to the 200,000 strong gay parade in Tel Aviv resulted in 4 people dead and 8 wounded. This is a serious matter. The time of lamenting has arrived to put sacks over and ask clemency from Hashem. If no tzadik will do this in Yisrael the situation deteriorates further. Rav Dov, do this for Yisrael. Call other tzadikim as well before the punishment escalates to the point of no return.

I’m waiting for ALL the dust to settle which should take a good amount of time, before we all find out the EMES of this entire situation about an unusual Rabbi. The world is in turmoil, and it is infecting the Jewish Community also. Time will tell.

Yes, Reb Dov what happened in Beit Shemesh and with Meir Ettinger? How did he look? How did he sound? We are all anxious to find out.

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai blamed "the occupation" for the fact that Paleostinians celebrated when two of their esteemed murderers shot up restaurants and outdoor cafes at a center for night life in Tel Aviv. That is all I need to know about both the Mayor of Tel Aviv and the people in Tel Aviv who have consistently voted for him, starting in 1998, to remain in that office of his. As I said above, someone else besides myself will have to pray for the reshayim at this time. I will pray for the 35 or 45% of Tel Avivans who have consistently NOT voted for Ron Huldai.

I was planning on going to Beit Shemesh after work and a course that I am taking for work. The course ended at 5pm. Yet, I had a commitment to learn with my son at 8pm at his Yeshivah in Givat Shaul. I did not want to cancel my learning with my son, and I could not reschedule it for later at night. So I am sorry, but I am not one of those who attended. If someone else attended, please let us know what happened.

Well here it is on HaKol HaYehudi with Meir Ettinger A celebration of his release. on Netzach that is in Malkhut Wednesday night.

If someone has a recording, please share it.

Tonight is the 48th Day in the Counting of the Omer (Yesod that is in Malkhut). Friday night is the last night of Counting the Omer. After counting 7 full weeks on Friday night, say a l'chaim. You have completed a difficult mitzvah to complete because if you missed even one night/day, then you would have to wait until next year to fulfill the mitzvah. If you did not miss even one day, congratulations. Take time out to drink a shot of vodka or bourbon. Or drink a beer. Say Baruch HaShem, I did it! Then be prepared for the 50th day. Say Havdalah on Motzei Shabbat, Bein Qodesh le'Qodesh, and welcome Shavuot with kavod.

I told you, Dov: Trump is a Mentsch! Don't go by superficialities: look deep into a man's soul. Trump has a good soul, and that is why all these leftists, Satanists, "New World Order-ists". REAL racists, and other bad folks, hate him.

If they don't destroy him, I still see a bright future for him. They will do everything they can to destroy him, though.

We need people like him: the world has become such a dark place. I was at the airport on Tuesday, and watched all the depraved gay couples and other such disgusting human specimens flood Ben Gurion. I guess they were going home to their respective countries after "partying" in Tel-Aviv. Debauchery was written all over their sickening faces and bodies; Israel has become such a magnet for everything immoral and bad in the world, it's so disheartening what the Erev Rav has wrought on this country. I felt so bad I actually went to the Chabad center, asked for a place for women to pray - believe it or not, they have nothing for women there -, and saw one kippah wearing homo just coming out of there: then I just cried from sheer sorrow at seeing how low Israel has sunk. And the next day.... the rest is history.

Thanks for admitting the truth, Dov. You are a real trooper.

Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach to you and all our fellow sufferers.

I want to mention something else, unrelated to the gays, but related to the terror attack: I was driving Monday evening from Kiryat Arba on the way to Jerusalem. At the Trempiada I saw two young men standing waiting for rides; they actually signaled to me to pick them up. One of them looked to me like he was an Arab disguised as a Jew and made me feel very unsettled. On my way out I told the security guard at the booth that these two men might be Arabs, to check them out. I don't know if security did or not. Could it be that those were the two terrorists? After all Yatta is very close by; they could easily have slipped past the security booth, walking from Route 60 into Kiryat Arba, and then gone to Tel Aviv catching a ride to Jerusalem from an unsuspecting Jew. Anybody saw pictures of the two Tel Aviv terrorists?

Don't forget to EAT CHAMETZ on Shavuot.

טו וּסְפַרְתֶּם לָכֶם, מִמָּחֳרַת הַשַּׁבָּת, מִיּוֹם הֲבִיאֲכֶם, אֶת-עֹמֶר הַתְּנוּפָה: שֶׁבַע שַׁבָּתוֹת, תְּמִימֹת תִּהְיֶינָה. 15 And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the day of rest, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the waving; seven weeks shall there be complete;
טז עַד מִמָּחֳרַת הַשַּׁבָּת הַשְּׁבִיעִת, תִּסְפְּרוּ חֲמִשִּׁים יוֹם; וְהִקְרַבְתֶּם מִנְחָה חֲדָשָׁה, לַיהוָה. 16 even unto the morrow after the seventh week shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall present a new meal-offering unto the LORD.
יז מִמּוֹשְׁבֹתֵיכֶם תָּבִיאּוּ לֶחֶם תְּנוּפָה, שְׁתַּיִם שְׁנֵי עֶשְׂרֹנִים--סֹלֶת תִּהְיֶינָה, חָמֵץ תֵּאָפֶינָה: בִּכּוּרִים, לַיהוָה. 17 Ye shall bring out of your dwellings two wave-loaves of two tenth parts of an ephah; they shall be of fine flour, they shall be baked with leaven, for first-fruits unto the LORD.

Shabbat Shalom and YomTov Sameach.

I admit Dov bear you were correct on predicting something would happen as we are entering the 50th Gate (as I understand you). Which is amazing because it Mamash happened very beginning of Shavuos. At the same time this does not seem to have international implications ie for Eretz Yisrael. How does this fit in? No one can possibly know.

Baruch Dayan Emeth: 50 dead homosexuals dead in a gay bar in Orlando in an ISIS terrorist attack coming out of Shavuot as we entered Sha'ar HaNun by default. (The terror attack was on Shavuot morning in Florida at 2am Florida time when it was 9am here in Israel.) Yes, count them as we came out of Shavuot. 50 dead. 5 then 0. Fifty dead. Write it any way that you want. So yes, we have reached Sha'ar HaNun by default. The leading nation in Edom has now fallen to -50 so that as Caesaria lies in spiritual ruin, Yerushalayim can now be spiritually rebuilt. We Jews have been at minus 49 since the Bolshevik revolution during WW1 when the majority of the world's Jews ceased to be Shomer Shabbat by the end of WW1. So we have been at -49 for 98 years, but last night the premier great Edomite nation in the world officially beat us to the sewer at -50, when 50 homosexuals were murdered in a gay bar in Orlando, Florida. YOU CAN'T GET MORE IN YOUR FACE DIVINE PROVIDENCE THAN THAT!

So the answer to your question Mark, is NO, this blog will be here to the Very End to herald the final redemption....B'itah. It comes becomes it is time and because our competition in Edom is worse off than we are now for the first time in at least 98 years, maybe ever. By default not by our merits, We have entered the 50th Gate.

It fits in in so many ways. 1. Islamic terror in Florida will help secure a Trump presidency unless the powers that be either assassinate him or declare martial law based on the pretext of massive rioting at the Republican Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, the week of the 17th of Tamuz, the 240th anniversary of the founding of the United States.

2. It guarantees an even greater act of Divine retribution if Obama votes to force the division of Eretz Yisrael with our local version of radical Muslims, by supporting the French initiative to divide us either this Summer or the day after the election in November if he does not declare martial law beforehand.

Think it through. You will probably come up with a host of other ways how this event affects us here in Israel.

I am sorry to say this but Achishena comes with Tov UMativ that is it is good and that it only should get better. B'Itah comes with Baruch Dayan Emeth, Blessed is He Who is the True Judge. That is the sad reality of b'itah which is our state of affairs.

To accompany "Yerushalayim can now be spiritually rebuilt” we have the rebuilding of the Old City:
"Al-Haleddeyi St. may seem like an unlikely location for the next stage of Jewish growth in Jerusalem, but this small street that descends from the Christian quarter to Ha Gai Street into what most consider the Muslim quarter, is experiencing an influx of Jewish residents.

"Once considered the main street in the Jewish quarter, AL-HALEDDEYI ST. known first as HEVRON Street, because of the high percentage of Jewish residents, saw its Jewish residents driven out in waves between 1929 and 1937. Many of the Old City Rabbis lived on it, including Rav Diskin. At its peak it had 1,299 Jewish residents and was a bustling center of Jewish life in the late 1800 and early 1900’s.” Read more at Israel Rising

May I add that this street was first known as HEVRON Street, so maybe herein is another clue to MORE rebuilding (in Hevron). I wonder if they ever decided about that house in Hevron that Yaalon nixed and had the new Jewish tenants REMOVED?

David: The slight revision by the Orlando police is that while there were still 50 dead, the 50th body was that of the evil Muslim murderer. Just goes to show the vicious cycle America has entered. The Jihad is no less tamei than the homosexual hordes seeking other men to wed, and it is intrinsically more evil from a bein Adam veChaveiro perspective. So the number dead IS STILL 50.

Well, Baruch haShem, we have entered the 50th Gate...despite our government following the nations of the world (particularly America) more than the Jewish Tafkeed.

It might mean that it will get better, slower than it would have, had we managed to earn some merit. But, better here than there.

Could we say that the murderer's name "Omar Mateen" could be put into Hebrew and translated "I will say it is suitable" (omar mateem} in the light of this understanding?

Here's a short Jewish connection to the massacre: "A former co-worker, Daniel Gilroy, said Mr. Mateen had talked often about killing people and had voiced hatred of gays, blacks, women and Jews."

I'm glad about all this. I believe in Hashem and I accept what R. Dov Bar Leib has said. But what still bugs me is how cold everyone is. Everyone is cheering for Hashem, but no one actually cares about the deep suffering of the person next to them. So I get the feeling that a lot of this is really an ego trip.

No one wants to look at their brother, see their real pain and suffering and say "I'm sorry, I know if I was a proper Jew I would help you. But I'm too messed up and broken myself. I have no real idea what I'm doing, I'm mostly just faking it, I can barely take it myself. I just wanted you to know that it isn't fair to you and I know that" Instead they tell the person "you are whining. Your needs are not legitimate. It's your fault. You aren't a good person. Because I am a righteous saint and it's really you that's the problem" And I get the strong feeling that what a lot of these calls for Moshiach are, is really about "Hashem will come and confirm that I'm the good one".

My two cents.
