Sha'ar HaNun: The Gateway to the 50th 50th

UPDATE: For those who don't know, Blogger limits Comments to 200 comments per page.  In order to see comments beyond 200, click on "Post a Comment" at the bottom of the Post page.  From the new page which pops up, you can view comments 1- 200 or newer comments starting with Comment 201 by clicking on "Newer" on the Post a Comment page which just popped up.  It is that simple.

Yesterday, Shavuot 5776, was the 50th Shavuot since the Unification of Yerushalayim in the 6 Day War.  It was therefore the 50th 50th, beyond the natural count of 7 x 7 =49.  It was a very very special Shavuot.  It is even hinted at in the very name Shavuot.  We all know from the verses in the Holy Torah that the "classic" count to fifty from Pesach is most represented by Pesach actually falling on a Shabbat so that the count for each week ends each week on Shabbat so that Shabbat is the 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, 35th, 42nd, and finally the 49th days of the Counting of the Omer.  When that happens about 30% of the time when Pesach Seder night does NOT fall on Motzei Shabbat, Monday night, or even Wednesday night, Shavuot 7 weeks and one day later falls on a Motzei Shabbat.  Now as it happened this year and last year, we say a special havdalah when saying kiddush for this one day of YomTov here in Eretz Yisrael, Bein Qodesh leQodesh.  You see, normally when one goes from Shabbat immediately into YomTov we go DOWN  in Qedushah.  We go from a day where we can't cook at all or transfer fire on Shabbat to a day where we can cook and transfer fire on YomTov which fell on Motzei Shabbat.  We go from a day which has 7 Aliyot to the Torah to a day that has only 5 Aliyot to the Torah when YomTov falls on a weekday.  So normally as we traverse the barrier directly from Shabbat to YomTov we descend a bit in Qedushah.  YomTov is still holier than Rosh Chodesh or Chol HaMoed or a regular Motzei Shabbat/ Yom Rishon, but it does not approach the holiness of Shabbat which comes every week at the end of the week.  Yet, how can this be with going from the 7th Shabbat, the 49th day of the Counting of the Omer, to Shavuot (the holy holy 50th day), a day whose greatness and specialness and purity cannot be attained by our natural efforts?  Well, we are a practical people.  We live with what G-d gives us.  In the year of the Exodus, Pesach "Seder" night fell on a Wednesday night.  The Exodus from Egypt was therefore on a Thursday, but since Moshe Rabbeinu was counting days and nights starting that Friday intentionally and not nights then days, he arrived at the 49th day on a Thursday and the 49th night on a Thursday night.  This way the 50th day began on Friday morning so that the Torah could not be given until Shabbat when we could begin to count in accordance to the Torah that was given at that time where days begin at sundown.  So the "Torah's" 50th day was at sundown Friday night.  Moshe Rabbeinu intentionally wanted for the Torah to be given on Shabbat precisely because Shabbat has an extra measure of holiness and compassion where the sick would be miraculously healed because of those extra measures.

So what Moshe was able to accomplish because he was counting days as Noach would have counted days (Days and then nights from Gen. 8:22 as Noach counted days)  was for Shavuot to fall on a "holier" day than just a weekday like Friday.  By nudging the process with G-d's permission to extend the count so that the Torah's 50th day should be on Shabbat, we received the Torah at that special level of holiness that only Shabbat can provide......until now, the 76th year of the 8th Century of the 6th Millennium (the 5700s).   So what is different this time around?  Well we have to analyze the discussion of Shavuot in two places in the Torah.  In Lev. 23 we see this:
  ו  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 (the word Shabbat), from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the waving; seven weeks (but it says Shabbatot or 7 Shabbatot) 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 (It says after the 7th Shabbat) 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.    Verse 17 is about Shavuot day itself.  Yes, we know from the Oral Torah and because of how we count the omer as it is mentioned in Devarim 16, that we count from the first day of Pesach when we could not leave our homes until HaShem slew the firstborn of Mitzraim.   The word Shabbat, a three letter root, is the combined two letter root Shev Bayit, which means "stay put at home" or "Sit in your House".  So the year of the Redemption from Mitzraim, the first night of Pesach was Shabbat that fell on a Wednesday night in the truest sense of the word.  We literally sat in our homes eating the Korban Pesach until immediately after Midnight.  Some say we waited to leave until the following morning so that we would not leave like slaves sneaking our of their masters' homes, but the Mitzrim wanted us to leave already by 1am that very night with their firstborn dying or already dead lying before them.

So let us look at the same corresponding verses in Devarim 16:
  שִׁבְעָה שָׁבֻעֹת, תִּסְפָּר-לָךְ:  מֵהָחֵל חֶרְמֵשׁ, בַּקָּמָה, תָּחֵל לִסְפֹּר, שִׁבְעָה שָׁבֻעוֹת. 9 Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee; from the time the sickle is first put to the standing corn shalt thou begin to number seven weeks.
י  וְעָשִׂיתָ חַג שָׁבֻעוֹת, לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ--מִסַּת נִדְבַת יָדְךָ, אֲשֶׁר תִּתֵּן:  כַּאֲשֶׁר יְבָרֶכְךָ, יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ. 10 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the LORD thy God after the measure of the freewill-offering of thy hand, which thou shalt give, according as the LORD thy God blesseth thee.

Here it says Shavuot for weeks not Shabbatot, but Shavuot for weeks is spelled with no Vavs in verse 9.  Yet, when we get to the day of Shavuot (7 weeks plus one) itself in verse 10 it is spelled like so  שָׁבֻעוֹת with one Vav. and a qoobootz (three dots in a diagonal row) under the Bet.  So notice the important difference between these two accounts of Sefirat HaOmer.  In the first account we count days where each week ends with or includes one Shabbat.  In the second count in Devarim the word Shabbat is not included in the commandment to count 7 weeks.  Interesting, nu?  But alas there is one more difference and perhaps it makes all the difference.   In the account in VaYiqra (Leviticus), the Torah lists the offerings (qorbanot) for Shacharit (the offerings for Musaph are listed in Parshat Pinchus in BaMidbar).  The Shacharit qorbanot including two leavened loaves of bread. 7 yearling lambs, one bull, and two rams as fully burnt Olah offerings + one male goat as a sin offering + two yearling sheep as a peace offering which is partially eaten by the Kohanim with the two loaves of Chametz bread from the newly harvested wheat.  But notice what is missing here.  This particular description of Shavuot does not mention the place where G-d will place His Name in Eretz Yisrael.  Because the Mishkan here was in the process of being built or had just been built, these sacrifices were likely brought when the Mishkan resided in Shilo and in the other places it was in Eretz Yisrael before the Mishkan was erected in Shilo from the time that wheat could actually be harvested in Eretz Yisrael.  Because there was no wheat grown in the Midbar, these Shacharit sacrifices were not brought in the Midbar.  But when we get to Devarim 16, we get to the following pasuk which distinguishes between the description of weeks in Leviticus as Shabbatot and the description of weeks in Devarim as Shavuot:
א  וְשָׂמַחְתָּ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, אַתָּה וּבִנְךָ וּבִתֶּךָ וְעַבְדְּךָ וַאֲמָתֶךָ, וְהַלֵּוִי אֲשֶׁר בִּשְׁעָרֶיךָ, וְהַגֵּר וְהַיָּתוֹם וְהָאַלְמָנָה אֲשֶׁר בְּקִרְבֶּךָ--בַּמָּקוֹם, אֲשֶׁר יִבְחַר יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, לְשַׁכֵּן שְׁמוֹ, שָׁם. 11 And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy man-servant, and thy maid-servant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are in the midst of thee, in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to cause His name to dwell there.

So at least part of the difference between counting Shabbatot and counting Shavuot is to reach the place where HaShem will place His Name that we have profaned amongst the nations of the world.  We profaned it so badly, that we ourselves have fallen to the 49th level of impurity most likely by the end of WW1 when more Jews chose Bolshevism over HaShem's Shabbat.  It is just the way it is.  Before WW1 the majority of the world's Jews were shomer Shabbat.  After WW1 they were not, and the main change was a massive shift away from Shabbat toward the ideas of the Bolshevik Revolution.  Gedolim of the era including the Chafetz Chaim spoke about this, and we accepted it as a fait accompli.  As mentioned in my previous posts, the last exceptional nation in Malkhut Edom, the United States of America over a period of 98 years descended in two different stages through all 49 levels of impurity.  From 1918 until 1967, the most avant garde third of American culture plunged through 49 levels ending in the Summer of Promiscuous Sex in the Summer of 1967.  From 1967 until 2016, the Middle third of American culture most affected by that Summer of Promiscuous Sex in 1967 took the plunge, and now as of this second week in June, 2/3rds of American culture is now at minus 50.  From random acts of immorality in Golden Gate Park in 1967 in San Francisco to Granting ketubot (marriage contracts) to homosexuals over the past year, American culture died on this very Shavuot in 2016 (5776) so much so that on that very day of Shavuot, 50 died in a Bar for homosexuals in Orlando, Florida at the 50th gate to impurity which is no gate at all.  It really is an Abyss, a Tehom, where the entire culture is built upon a quicksand of nothingness.  Now the 50 who died does include the ISIS mass home grown mass murderer who in a moment of intense cruelty brought 49 others down with him.  America is now utterly finished with no real hope for reaching any path to its former glory.  Now that the last real exceptional nation in Malkhut Edom has reached -50, by default and not by our merits Yerushalayim along with its Holy Temple will now be spiritually rebuilt.  Spiritual Caesaria lies in total ruin, and it is a spiritual law of nature that Yerushalayim will now be spiritually rebuilt.

So now we get back to the hints in our story.  Between the Yovel years 5678 (1918) and 5727 (1967), HaShem stressed Aliyah to Eretz Yisrael.  That 49 year period was kicked off by the Balfour Declaration in the Fall of 5678.  The next 49 year period that began in the Yovel 5727 (1967) kicked off 49 years of Aliyat HaRegel to the Kotel HaMaaravi in the holier half of Yerushalayim where the Temple Mount and the walled Holy City rest.  In each case we made Aliyah in spurts of 600,000 people to kick off the next stage.  By the fall of 1947 the Jewish population of Eretz Yisrael reached 600,000, and the modern physical state of Israel was founded.  By 1967 there was an Army of 600,000 men between 20 and up in Eretz Yisrael, and now in the year 2016 while there are 6 million Jews now in Eretz Yisrael, there are now 600,000 Jews in the Greater Yerushalayim metro area from Geva Binyamin in the north to Givat Rimon (Pomegranate Hill) in Efrat in the south (as described by Zecharia HaNavi in chapter 14 verse 10).  So what is the next stage?  For that we have to ask "the legs" of Aliyat Har HaBayit whose rise into the Knesset began with the resignation of Defense Min Yaalon on the 25th day of Sefirat HaOmer at Netzach that is in Netzach.  He then resigned from the Likud party the next day allowing Yehudah Glick to be inaugurated at Hod that is in Hod on Lag B'Omer.  Keep in mind that he is only the legs of Aliyat Har HaBayit in Shamayim.  He is the premier Aliyat Har HaBayit specialist in the world, and HaShem has allowed him to fulfill that role.  Try to ignore some of the dumb things that come out of his mouth because the mouth of this Messianic process is Mashiach ben David while the Netzach and Hod belong to the legs of Yehudah Glick.  So now that we have arrived at the stage of Aliyat Har HaBayit, we have to realize that the first two stages of Aliyah lead to Jews building their homes in Eretz Yisrael and then in the Old City of Yerushalayim, but in this stage, the Aliyah is totally spiritual because only G-d lives on Har HaBayit.  Since it is the place to which He will place his name, the pasuk in Devarim 16 now comes into play that we will rejoice over the Festival of Shavuot in the place where HaShem will place His Name.  And when does that occur?

For that we look at the difference between the words Shabbat שַּׁבָּת and Shavuot שָׁבֻעוֹת because as mentioned above we are talking about the penultimate year when unlike most years where this is the case, we go from the 7th Shabbat of Sefirat HaOmer with its qedushah of Shabbat to the actual 50th Gate (Shaar HaNun) of the Final Redemption.  In this year while Shavuot falls immediately after Shabbat, unlike under normal circumstances, we go up in Qedusah going into Shavuot on Motzei Shabbat by going up in qedushah and not down from Shabbat to YomTov (as would usually be the case).  So what is the difference?  One Ayin and One Vav, the 76th year, and not only a 76th year of a Jewish Century, but that 76th year is itself a Motzei Shevi'it year, the year after a Sabbatical year (or Shmittah year).  So not only is it a year where Shavuot is on Motzei Shabbat, but the year itself is Motzei Shevi'it.  So do we have a hint to the Century?  Of course, the other three letters which the two words Shabbat and Shavuot have in common are a Tav, Shin, and a Bet.  Of those three letters, the two letters which refer to the "hundreds" are the Tav and the Shin, the 700s.  So there you go, the very year where this actually takes place is this very year Tav Shin Ayin Vav!  So as America has fallen to minus 50 with 50 dead in a gay bar in Orlando, by default and b'itah (as Caesaria now lies in total spiritual ruin) we here in Eretz Yisrael have just entered the Gateway to the 50th, the Golden Gate to the Temple Mount!

I will clean this up tomorrow, but I wanted this published as Jews in Chu"l finish the 2nd day of Shavuot.  The leftover Bet likely refers to the two years of transition because as Mashiach is revealed in Motzei Shmittah having the status of Chezkat Mashiach, he needs to prove himself  over the course of two years.  I would urge those to look at this post as a Shiur AND NOT A PROPHESY for what will occur from here on out.

Thank you Reb Dov.

Shabbat before Shavuot was also the 90th official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II of the UK, it involved lots of pageantry in London.
Wonder if that had any significance too?

Very interesting Shiur, Dov, thank you.

Just one detail, which does not change anything to your overall analysis, because Tum'ah of murder is Tum'ah of murder, whether committed by one lone individual or by a group. Actually if what I am about to share is true, then the Tum'ah of America is even worse, because it would be an American grown, politically motivated process that caused the massacre, and not some isolated crazy Muslim fanatic.

Apparently there were more than one shooter: it seems this was a homegrown plot, another false flag. At any rate ISIS IS a creation of the CIA, no matter how you look at it. Lots of details I won't get into, and nothing is proven yet, however the presence of more than one shooter seems solid. It wouldn't be the first time, would it.

On another note, I still find the explanation of the exact timing of Shabbat vs Shavuot at Matan Torah quite confusing. Is there a way to explain it in a bit simpler terms? Thanks.

The Mashiach won't be so naive to let himself being identified before the wars of השם did happen. Gog and Magog are a turning episode towards olam haba. Mashiach's appearing is such a surprise that the two years of proving himself in the open as being the Mashiach won't occur.
The entire episode of Mashiach's intervention in world affairs is entirely hidden, as Rambam asserts along the prophets hinting to end of days.
But the year 5778 sounds entirely realistic considering the 70 year gap since the foundation of Yisrael in 1948.
The lowering of US to minus 50 is practically the signalling of its demise by the end of 2016. The good intention of Trump to save the Mitzraim of the day won't have enough time to be fulfilled.
We have to observe that the events of gays open manifestations on grand scale with parades around the world trigger the new Sodoma lessons as preludes. Awakening of volcanoes, huge sinkholes, devastating rainfalls configure the end of days scenario.
As long as Am Yisrael follows the Edom's criteria of evaluation of world events, she goes in the same direction as Edom does. The manmade human rights conundrum engulfs hunanity in selfdestruction. Yishmael is already inside the Edom social fabric.
The clear hatred of Yisrael by UN is the acceleration of tikun of manking by showing to the surface the true colours of the rotten international body.
Prophecies are being systematically fulfilled now in an accelerating manner. From now on the sequence of surprising world events won't stop until Hashem's plan is accomplished. The Yom HaDin is here, all the conscientious Jews should act accordingly.

Dov, a big hug and Yishar Koach! For years I have felt that this was the depth of Moshe Rabeinu’s reasoning for adding one day of his own. If they had simply counted 50 days and received the Torah, it would have retroactively turned out that only 49 had passed. This rings so true that I was sure I’d find it in writing. Did you reach it on your own or find it in a book?
By the way, from this one can get a glimpse of the sheer power of Moshe Rabeinu, who for 24 hours held the entire universe from collapsing – the whole of creation had been waiting 2448 years for the predetermined Yom HaShishi, the 6th of Sivan, when Bnei Yisrael were to receive the Torah and retroactively justify the world’s existence. When the great day arrived and nothing happened, they were ready to go back to Tohu VaBohu, but Moshe said: Wait! We’re postponing the big event by one special day, because the Torah has to be given from Shaar HaNun.
That’s the true arithmetic: 50 ≠ 49 + 1 , but rather: 50 = 49 + ∞

Matan: On the issue of Ben David comes in Motzei Shevi'it, he may have and I emphasize "may have" reared his head from the earthly hellfires of "Duma" just before Shavuot right after Glick entered the K'nesset. Yet, if dare I say, Meir E. is the mouth of the Messianc process mentioned in this very post, world conditions will have to change drastically so that when he finally speaks up he does not end up in the Shabak dungeon a second time.

Dov Bear,
Elaborate post and as usual sounds great. As I always said: I don't know if the Torah you write here is 100% accurate but I do know that it is very unique and original.

From what I've understood from Rav Kessin, Trump is the reflection of what is happening in Shamayim. The Satan who is the Saar of America is desperately trying to save himself to "become great again" to regain his great stature among the Saarim. As Rav Kessin says the Satan is dying and he is trying to salvage himself and hoping, begging Hashem to be saved. Which seems to be manifesting in Donald Trump. This is why now I do not think Trump will win because that would mean the Saar of America will be rejuvenated which as you said above is not possible once the 50th level of tumah has sadly been reached by what used to be a great nation.

What do you think? Does this make sense? Which also may mean that Rav Winston is correct and there actually may not be elections after all.

I'm curious if you have any thoughts on this.

I meant to ask this earlier too.

Does this all mean that this is just the beginning of attacks? What exactly does being on the 50th level look like? Is it even possible to know cause it's never happened before?

Also, I'm not clear on how all because the world has reached 50th level of tumah how does that translate into Geulah? Is it because Hashem fears we may arrive at the 50th level of tumah too? Why must we be redeemed because others have fallen below 49?

Thanks again,

Neshama here. I just noticed that: "After numerous months of behind-the-scenes diplomatic struggles, Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon was chosen to head the United Nation's legal committee, which deals with sensitive issues such as the global war on terror."

I think this means that Dannon, head of the UN law committee, will be able to OPPOSE the big "O" if he becomes head of the UN. That might mean a WAR between the two. Does anyone see the significance in this?

I’m repeating my comment here (from previous post) because this also may contribute to what you wrote and what is happening:

To accompany that which you wrote: "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. [this street leads directly to our Temple]

"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?

As long as Yisrael expands in the territory of the Holy Land given by Hashem, she won't suffer major destruction and significant loss of human life. We have noticed how Western Europe is eaten alive by the Muslim invaders. But when Am Yisrael withdraws from the divine land, the disaster happens.
The severing between the land and its true inhabitants attracts punishment. The entertaining of gay parades attracts punishment. when we reject the Edom's bankrupt way of life Hashem is pleased.
Yisrael of today is very far from the characteristics of olam haba. But her ability to transform herself will be astonishing.
Yet, there isn't significant movement among American Jewish community.
You who read this comment as American Jew wake-up! Quit US as soon as you can! There is still the chance to save 20% of Jews of America, as did happen in Mitzraym. The Orlando Shooting is just the beginning of the demise of a great nation that lost its vertically.
From this Shavuot, as Rav Dov did mention, events are moving rapidly. Take out the entire Chabad from New York!

Dan G and DS: Yes, look up what Rav Eliyahu Kitov has to say about how Moshe Rabbeinu was able to add an extra day. It is in his volume about the month of Siwan. He actually brings down that when we said, "All that HaShem has spoken we will do" on the 2nd of Siwan, Moshe considered this as full teshuvah for the Sin of Adam haRishon. We had rectified ourselves as if we were sinless before G-d to the point of having the eternal life that Adam had before his sin! Immediately, Moshe darshaned that we had reverted to the time of Creation of the world when nights preceded days from our previous status of being Noachides. So he did NOT count the 2nd of Siwan as part of Sefirat HaOmer since he could not retroactively consider the evening of the 2nd of Siwan as part of the 46th day of the Omer since that previous evening had already been reckoned as the 2nd half of the 45th day of the Omer. So he counted the 46th day as being from the evening of the 3rd of Siwan, the 47th day as being from the eve of the 4th of Siwan, the 48th day as being from the eve of the 5th of Siwan, and finally the 49th day as being from Friday, the 6th of Siwan! So Shavuot that year in 2448 was on Shabbat, the 7th of Siwan.

I wanted to write more about this, but I am tired. I had a tire puncture today. It was a good learning experience to learn how to change a flat tire, but I am tired because of the tire. Good night.

It is really scary in America now. The 50th level of impurity is really an Abyss (the Tehom from the 2nd verse in the Torah in Bereishit). All the spiritual furniture of America for the last 240 years such as the US Constitution and its Freedoms and the Right to bear arms will now disintegrate rapidly. Who would really want to remain in one's golden cage there under these conditions??

Dan G: Yes, but as you well know we only remained at the level of Adam HaRishon before his cheit until we built the Golden Calf 45 days after the 2nd of Siwan on the 17th of Tamuz. Another example of a continuous stream of Lost Horizons over the course of the last 3328 years. B'itah, it is time to ditch the Erev Rav. One of the advantages of the Qedushah of Yovel, is that it provides an opportunity for HaShem to punish the wicked in Olam HaZeh's inter-connective framework without causing the righteous to suffer. May we soon see how that is accomplished. Amen

Mashiach is watching behind the wall.
There is a fundamental link between what Yisrael does in relation to Yishmael and the reaction from השם. Any concession Yisrael makes is regarded as being against Hashem. It has been seen already how Palestinian aggression increased when Jewish leaders did consider the establishment of a Palestinian state. But now the PM has clearly stated that it won't be such a terrorist nation, as Gaza has become.
The increase of the Jewish presence on the Temple Mount area, now, when Shekhinah is descending, is essential to Am Yisrael's survival.
US will prove in the open the betrayal thus Hashem won't protect that nation anymore. Already the winning powers, that will emerge after the Gog and Magog wars, are closed to us.
When the atomic tech, given by the Dragon to the Beast, emerges from Iran, Yishmael will be on top for awhile. That means extermination of many people. The struggle between Edom and Yishmael is divinely orchestrated.
It's good the PM reads this blog and sees how the biblical prophecies are systematically fulfilled thus being inspired of what might follow.
Take weapons from US while still it is a major world power. The new laser beams weapons. You will fight hard Yisrael, for the cleansing of the nation.
Those rising their hands towards heaven will be spared of soul annihilation.

So, how is ditching the Erev Rav done? Does it mean that our protests will be more effective? Voting would actually be counted correctly without corruption? Until now, every time we wanted a certain good to occur, double bad would happen.

Is getting rid of those whose interest is really against the people of Israel up to us, or up to HaShem?

CDG: Hopefully HaShem will fight that war. A derech hateva Civil War would be horribly bloody with too many good people dying. I am in agreement with my friend Dovid that as Edom and its world control and economy disintegrates, the Erev Rav will either flee, die, or go into hiding. In case they hide, Mashiach will have them executed for treason and other capital offenses. So the key to The Erev Rav's dismantlement of its power structure lies in the collapse of Western Civilization.

It won't be civil war in Yisrael, Hashem doesn't allow it. The Erev Rav will disappear in fighting Yishmael, as it is the case of Edom as well. Erev Rav will have their souls annihilated, while those true Jews dying will have their souls saved.

When HaShem has decreed Judgement on a place, he might send a vile mass murderer, or He might send an alligator. Before Omar or Omer, at the end of Sefirat HaOmer, blew away 49 homosexuals at a Bar for Homosexuals, he cased out Downtown Disney at Disney World this past April to see if he could raise a little hell there too. Disney Warned the FBI about Omar and his wife suspiciously casing out the place

Yet, the two days after the Orlando massacre, a bizarre news story has appeared out of Disney World that an alligator gobbled up one of their two year old patrons on one of their resort beaches. I know about these beaches. We stayed at the Caribbean Resort at Disney last summer, my son and I. And he went to the Video Arcade in Downtown Disney. But last Summer America and its circuses were at -49. This Summer, America and its circuses are at -50. Big Big Difference. One has a floor. The other is a bottomless pit.

Excuse me, but again, what was the big event that made you decide that America had switched from -49 to -50 Davka this year? Was it Donald Trump winning the Republican nomination instead of your beloved Cruz? Was THAT the reason for your assessment? Or was there something else I missed? Thanks

6/15/2016 11:27 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

DS: There is an answer in two parts to your question.

1. In the Big Picture, this Summer of 5776 (beginning in May and June) is the beginning of the 50th Summer since the Summer of Promiscuous Immorality that began out in the San Francisco Bay Area of California in the Summer of 1967 (5727). 5727 was also a potential Yovel year so that miraculously but right on cue, the 6 Day War and the Unification of Yerushalayim occurred at the very moment that the Summer of "Love" got underway out in San Fran. quickly spreading like wildfire with sex in public parks and other public places with women "wearing flowers in their hair" as the song goes. At the time they were called flower children, but eventually the name hippie was the name that stuck to this movement. It was really the end of the previous 50 year cycle and the beginning of a new 50 year cycle at the same time. As the avant garde third of American culture, which started down the path toward tumah at the end of WW1, reached -50, the children of the middle third of American culture were encouraged to follow in the path of the avant garde folk. The milieu out in San Francisco in Haight Ashbury and Golden Gate Park was the springboard for this movement to bring the Main Street of the culture down the road of passing through all 49 gates of tumah over the course of 49 years between that Summer in 1967 and this very Shavuot. When the US nationally adopted giving ketubot to homosexual marriages last June, America basically insured its demise over the course of the following year. That is actually in the Gemorrah in Chullin that this very act, of granting ketubot (marriage contracts) to homosexual sex, would upset the Creator so much that he would tear up previous covenants with the gentile nations even to the point of ignoring the merit of previous generations in that nation. So America was already doomed at that point, but it had to go through the motions of its last year before the Abyss. In a democracy if 2/3rds of the culture is spiritually dead even if it is still alive, then simply by Rov, the will of the majority, the nation is doomed. One of the signs that America fell from -49 to utter insanity at -50 over the course of the last year are the gender confusion court decisions of forcing gender confused people of the opposite sex to be allowed to use the bathroom of the sex on the door of the bathroom. When the guy with the beard who said that he was a woman on any particular day could start using your daughter's public bathroom (sitting in the open stall next to her breathing like a man), the true American nightmare of -50 had already begun. What happened on Shavuot this year was simply the final hammer blow. The body count (the sefirah) of Omar only reached -49, but Omar the butcher himself in that gay pub was the true face and dead body of -50. He did what the gay marriage court decision could not do alone. Combining that Supreme Ct. decision last June at -49 with Omar's butchery at -50, he truly lowered America into hell (or he raised hell into America). Think of it as Sefirat HaOmer or Sefirat HaOmar in the opposite direction. On the side of Taharah and Qedushah, HaShem came down to rest on Mt. Sinai in response to our approach to +49, and Heaven and earth met on that mountain on that Day of Shavuot in 2448. That is part one of the answer.

Reb Dov

I am glad you mentioned Brexit.

To leave the European Union would be the greatest constitutional change in the UK since well, joining the European Union!

Except the UK public never really gave their consent for that, a previous referendum in 1973 was to join European Economic Area and things snowballed. There was a second referendum in 1975 to double check on the public's wishes.

Referendums are rare in the UK, only four in the last 43 years.

From a Geulah perspective, if the European Union and it's Euro Currency represent Edom/Amalek, then the UK is better off out of it.

If the European Union is one of the pillars of the West, then it's weakening will be a significant change in the world order.

What will the outcome be?

No idea!

The polls are notoriously unreliable.

From an anecdotal point of view, nearly everyone I speak to is undecided.
The information put to us by politicians from either side contradicts in many respects, and the economic estimates of leaving are just that, estimates.

So people will probably vote with their hearts, and patriotism is not to be underestimated. Neither is the fear of more mass immigration from Muslim countries.

But neither is the fear of change, of economic uncertainty.

Will that cause people to change their minds at the ballot box, at the moment of voting, away from wanting to leave and towards wanting to stay?
Will they, to use a London expression, "Lose their bottle?"

I cannot predict the outcome, because there are still too many undecided people a week away from the vote.

2. The microcosmic answer to your question is Yes. Donald Trump was the vehicle of the final hammer blow to bring America down from -49 to -50 over the course of the Republican Primary season. He is not a horrible human being of the avant garde left, but he is a firstrate menuval of the American Middle. You and perhaps 40% of the readers of this blog might not agree with me on this. We have gone over and over all the sordid details of our disagreement on this issue. But yes, Ted Cruz who believed in the triune god was a better human being who believed the US Constitution and America's covenant with G-d that the Founding Fathers made on the day that that Constitution was ratified. Obviously ERetz Yisrael abhors even the slightest idolatry. But the less fragrant form of idolatry (belief in shituf (partnership) WITHOUT actual p'salim (statues and figurines of the image of Yoshke)) that Protestant American Xtians hold by does not merit the death penalty in Olam HaZeh 7000 miles west of Eretz Yisrael. Worshiping the dead body of Yoshke on the altar of the Catholic Church actually IS a death sentence in Olam haZeh. This was also discussed before based on halakhic authorities, and I don't want to review all those details again. It is all in comments. So the American voter had a choice. He/she had free will, and they freely chose the menuval over Cruz. When falling from -49 to -50, the choice has to be clear as a bell so that later on, no one can say that they did not have a choice since this truly was America's last true free will choice as a nation. Now we, you and I, won't agree on this, but such is life.

Again, given the choice between the godless rugged individualist American (the lion with eagle's wings from Daniel 7) in the personage of Donald Trump and the demonic globalists (the four headed leopard from Daniel 7), we have to choose Trump. If I decide to even participate in the American election this Fall that may or may not even take place, I will vote for Trump over the other option. The Globalists are far, far worse. We can agree on that. Comparing the heart of the devil at the European Union in Brussels with Trump, Trump is most assuredly the lesser of the evils. But comparing Trump to Cruz, Cruz was a tzaddik, and America rejected the gentile tzaddik in what was at one time the greatest gentile nation 7000 miles from Eretz Yisrael.

Thanks for the details, Dov. Good review of your interpretation of the situation. Quite an original way to look at things; not necessarily true, mind you, but original it is.

Now to get back to Cruz and Trump, frankly I don't believe Americans rejected Cruz because they didn't want a G-d fearing man for president. I think they rejected him because he IS part of the GLOBALISTS, whether you like it or not; THAT is what Americans rejected. It is to their credit, because by rejecting Cruz they rejected demonic control over America. How can you blame America, they made the right choice! You yourself have stated that Trump is better than the globalists, and Cruz, even if he is a believer in G-d, would have facilitated globalist control over America, and that is an absolute no-no. So America made the right choice, at least the part of America that is rejecting Clinton and Sanders. Using your imagery of falling from -49 to -50, choosing demonic control would have definitely thrown America into a much greater abyss than choosing Trump.

One way or another, the USA is one big mess: lowest level of Tum'ah of immorality, and lowest level of Tum'ah of murder. And you forget to mention the selling of body parts in the marketplace ( fetal tissue for sale by Planned Parenthood) which also contributed to the fall.

My confusion arose because you are starting the count in June/Siwan/Shavuot, whereas the year starts in either Tishrei or Nissan. But since you are taking the Omer into consideration, it does make sense to count from Shavuot/Siwan/June.

You mean this DS: Rav Winston on Geulah, Where are We? I always advise everyone to check their links before posting that their links work and go to the right page. The main reason why the 49 year count between 5727 and 5776 begins and ends in Iyar/Siwan is because of what Rav Chaim Vital zt"l said about Mashiach ben David appearing at Sha'ar HaNun (the 50th Gate). The main reason why there is an 7 day difference between Yom Yerushalayim on the 28th Iyar, 5727 and Shavuot 5776 is because the coming of Mashiach is compared to Brit Milah. Chazal tell us that that when the 2nd Temple was destroyed, Mashiach ben David was conceived (either on Tisha B'Av of the year 69 or of the year 70ce). The Gemorrah in Niddah tells us that the Heavenly computation for the exact length of pregnancy is 9 months x 29.5 days/month + 5 days = 271 days. Now actually that computation adds up to 270.5 days, but the deciding factor that it is 271 days is that the gematriah of HeRaYON = 271. HeRayon means pregnancy or conception. So that is the number of days of pregnancy. So let us add precisely 271 Shmittah cycles to the year of destruction, the Motzei Shmittah year 3830 (70ce). Using the Gregorian date 70 (either would give the same result): 70 + 271x 7 = 70 + 1897 years = 1967 (5727). So B'Diyuk (precisely) 271 Shmittah cycles after the Churban Bayit Sheini, Mashiach was born in 1967, during Ichud Yerushalayim of the 6 Day War! (I originally got this from Ya'ak of Yerenan Yaakov not so long ago.) Yet, in order to get to day of the Brit Milah, we have to count 7 more days since Brit Milah is ON the 8th day, 7 days after the birth. So add 7x7 = 49 more years we get to 5776 (2016). But notice that the "birth" was 7 days before Shavuot in 5727 with Ichud Yerushalayim on the 28th of Iyar. Obviously the actual event of Sha'ar HaNun would climax on the day of the Brit. So that day was Shavuot 5776, 7 Shmittah cycles + 7 days after the birth. So yes, based on this and much else, one could almost expect that there would be a major event to demarcate passing through the 50th Gate.

Sadly it was a negative event, a wondrous event in our eyes, which requires the Brachah "Baruch Dayan Emeth" and not the brach "Tov UMativ" It is wondrous and scary because of the nature of Divine Din at the same time. THIS IS the DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACHISHENA AND B'ITAH. Achishena comes with Tov UMativ which we did not deserve. Instead we are getting b'itah with its Baruch Dayan Emeth

CDG: Great post. Thanks for sharing. From what I just wrote immediately above, you can see why b'itah by default must be by G-d's design, since it was He and He alone who decided on this date.

Moriah: because the Globalists are directly serving Amaleq. Donald Trump might be a menuval, but whatever leadership he represents, he is NOT serving Amaleq. So as bad as Trump is, voting for a servant of Amaleq is infinitely worse. But you are right about "getting involved" in this election. We have reached a point in the redemption process, that perhaps this is no longer our fight. I have to think about this. The only reason why I might vote, if it even comes to that, would be to prevent a servant of Amaleq from reaching high office again. Yet, Obama might declare martial law beforehand in order to prevent Trump from ascending the throne, making this discussion moot. We will see.

I should also point out that Trump loves Mussolini's quote, "“It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.” Notice how both Mussolini and Trump identify with lions who soar above the masses (Daniel 7). Now Trump might answer back that he wants all of his followers to find the lion with eagle's wings inside themselves to "Make America Great Again", but the point remains the same that he is that lion with eagle's wings. The ancient empire associated with the lion with eagle's wings was the Babylonian Empire, and yes, Amaleq was NOT the main problem of that particular empire although Nebuchadnezzar had his own share of problems with his yetzer hara too.

Yet, there is one more Edomite Empire today whose representation is the "lion with eagle's wings" besides the American Republic or Empire. That was the British Empire who has represented that concept since the 18th Century when they became an empire, replacing the Dutch Mercantile Empire of the 17th Century. They bequeathed the scepter of the lion with eagle's wings over to their colonists in America even though, The American Founding Fathers added the "nation under G-d" concept for unifying the heterogeneous nature of the American Republic and securing G-d's blessings, something that Trump and his followers have allowed to wither away over the last 49 years. But this is the reason that the British Exit from the EU matters. At heart the British are not with the Globalists (four headed leopard) either. Anyone who has ever witnessed a Nigel Farage take down of the EU Behemoth or of Herman Van Rompuy, the First unelected President of the EU Council, can watch a British version of a lion with eagle's wings in action. And it will likely be the hard work of Nigel Farage which tips the British vote toward Brexit if he succeeds.

End of Days consequence: With Brexit in Europe and Trumpian rebellion in America we see a set up on a global scale where the Lion with Eagle's Wings folks want to destroy the Globalists (the four headed leopard folks). This truly is not our fight even if the Globalists are worse. Both will destroy each other. It may even get very bloody. But it will leave over the Three Ribbed Bear in Daniel 7 (Dubiel, the Power of the Bear, Russia, Persia, and the Kurds) to conquer Istanbul/ Constantinople in order to fulfill the Vilna Gaon's prophesy of the Destruction of the eastern foot of the former Roman Empire where the iron (Rome) is mired with clay (Yishmael) of the statue in Nebuchadnezzar's vision (Daniel 2).

That part is not in Yehudah Glick's hands. He is only in control of his right leg of Netzach and his left leg of Hod.

So why is Tamuz, immediately following Ramadan such an opportune time to bring down the Shekhinah on to the Temple Mount??

As mentioned by Dan G. above, Mah is from the Olam HaTikkun. According to the Arizal, these three Names above specifically manifest themselves during the Summer and Fall of the Year of Tikkun. It seems that 5776 is this very year...it seems. Sag refers to the 63 days between what was this epic Shavuot at Sha'ar HaNun and Tisha B'Av (including the Day of Shavuot itself). The Name Mah refers to the tikkunim that should take place during the 45 day period between Tisha B'Av and the 24th of Elul in the Olam Yetzirah. And Ben refers to the tikkunim that should take place between the 25th of Elul and the 17th of MarCheshvan 5777, the 52 day period between Bri'at HaOlam and the Day of the Great Flood, in Olam HaAsiyah.

This Sag period (63 day period) of time between Shavuot and Tisha B'Av is one of the secrets of the Final Redemption. It seems that this 63 day period has as its primary characteristic the crumbling of the edifice of Olam HaZeh. The periods of Mah and Ben seem to reflect the beginning of building a new Messianic world order after Olam HaZeh has crumbled into Tohu. Tohu is the principle attribute of the first 9 days of Av. We shall see. We shall see. After Shabbat I will include the Ariza"l's chart given to me by Rav Pinchus Winston a full decade ago. Shabbat Shalom

Rav Dov, what is the stage of Shekhinah presence on the Temple Mount? The process appears to be started already, since the event is intrinsically accompanied by cleansing of Am Yisrael that is seen happening through turmoil. Beemet never in its history Yisrael was so much divided.
Shekhinah presence among Am Yisrael does in fact polarises the nation in good and evil until the evil is eliminated. Will a more consistent Jewish presence of the Temple Mount increases the Shekhinah? The PM appears the understand this by lifting the ban of MKs to visit the site.

The appearance of the Shekhinah on the Temple Mount is tied to the three letters that are missing from G-d's Throne because Amaleq is still in the World. Here is the following pasuk from the Torah in Sefer Shemot 17 at the very end of Parshat BeShalach when the first full fledged war against Amaleq takes place at Rephidim. Rephidim is a hop, skip, and a jump from the split rock at Massah veMerivah where Moshe first hit the rock to bring forth water. In the very next verse after Milkhemet Amaleq haRishon, Yithro shows up with Moshe's wife and children:

טז וַיֹּאמֶר, כִּי-יָד עַל-כֵּס יָהּ, מִלְחָמָה לַיהוָה, בַּעֲמָלֵק--מִדֹּר, דֹּר. {פ} 16 And he said: 'The hand upon the throne of the LORD: the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.' {P}

So notice an Aleph is missing from the word Kiseh (throne) so that the Throne of Kah throughout all of history until now has been pronounced Kais, and notice that the last two letters in HaShem's Name are missing a Vav and a Final Hey. The resulting word of the combined three missing letters is: אוה which is the past tense for the word to desire in Hebrew. It is found in the following pasuk in Psalm 132:

יג כִּי-בָחַר יְהוָה בְּצִיּוֹן; אִוָּהּ, לְמוֹשָׁב לוֹ. 13 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; He hath desired it for His habitation:

So there you go. When those three letters appear consecutively as HaShem's Four letter Name spelled out appear together as He fills the Four Universes, his desire for a habitation below on the Temple Mount is most pronounced, and at that time the Throne of His Full Name will be complete in the world.

After Shabbat I will try to post the chart of the Ariza"l, but it basically goes thusly: There are 72 days when the months are maleh between the 25th of Adar Sheini and the 6th of Siwan (Shavuot). The gematriah 72 Name of HaShem fills each day letter by letter during that time. The gematriah 72 letter Name of HaShem is spelled out letter by letter Yud Vav Dalet/ Hey Yud/ Vav Yud Vav/ Hey Yud. Yud Vav Dalet is 20. Hey Yud twice is 15 +15= 30. And Vav Yud Vav is 22. Add them up, it is 72. This takes place (or just took place) between the 25th of Adar Sheini and Shavuot because the world was either created five days before Rosh Chodesh Nissan or five days before Rosh HaShanah (1st Tishrei) depending on one's perspective. If Man had not sinned, the date of Bri'at HaOlam would have been the 25th of Adar, (this year Adar Sheini)...... OMG the Brit Milah of Netzach Binyamin Ettinger was on that very day of the 25th of Adar Sheini This is profound. Let me continue a bit later.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Note: If Mankind had not sinned, the lunar cycles would have been precisely 30 days and not the 29.5 days that we have now. So on the Arizal's chart Adar has 30 days so that if the world had been created on the 25th of Adar, from 25 Adar to 30 Adar is 6 days leading into Rosh Chodesh Nissan. Nissan and Iyar then have 30 days + 6 days in Siwan. That is 72 days.

So the 63 letter Name of HaShem (Sag) is spelled with only one difference from the gematriah 72 letter Name of HaShem. The Vav is spelled Vav Aleph Vav. So notice the order. Yud Vav Dalet/ Hey Yud/ Vav Aleph Vav/ Hey Yud. I emboldened the three consecutive letters Aleph Vav Hey in order to accentuate the Time of HaShem's desire to dwell on Har HaBayit.

Now Yud Vav Dalet is 20 days from the 6th of Siwan to the 25th of Siwan. The first Hey Yud is 15 days from the 26th of Siwan to tenth of Tamuz followed by the first Vav takes us to the 16th of Tamuz. So the Desire to dwell in His Place below in Tzion begins on the 17th of Tamuz. But He only comes down in response to Aliyat Har HaBayit. As we go up, He comes down. See how that works? So Yehudah Glick's desire to restart his Aliyat Har HaBayit as an MK during the month of Tamuz is no accident.

6/17/2016 2:56 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Since the difference between Sag and Mah is that the Heys in Mah are spelled Hey Aleph instead of Hey Yud, we get a difference of -18 in gematriah from 63 to 45. Yet, the same phenomenon then appears during the month of Elul where Aleph Vav Hey are consecutive.

From the 10th of Av: Yud Vav Dalet/ Hey Aleph/ Vav Aleph Vav/ Hey Aleph. So the Desire is again rekindled on the 12th of Elul for twelve days until the 23rd of Elul. Don't ask me what actually happens at those two times in Tamuz and in Elul. I am learning as we go like everyone else.

So why would it be this year the Summer of 5776 that as we go up to Har HaBayit, He comes down? Because we have arrived at the 50th Gate, the gate that leads from the secular place outside the walls of Yerushalayim up to the Ezrat HaNashim on the Temple Mount. Like all things that are 50, it is a Golden Gate (a 50th Gate). In the case of America it leads from San Francisco (at -49) to Marin County where all the dead heads live (at -50). Marin County, California has the most anti-Israel electorate in the United States. Just Google Congressman Lynn Woolsey, and you will see what I mean.

Yet, here in Israel like a boomerang we are on the opposing track, we are now at +50 whether so many of us want to be there or not. It is just a spiritual law. Edom goes to -50, and Israel goes to +50. Of course the Erev Rav is not included in this. Let the separation begin!

As we learn on the fly or on the go, we often reflect on something and in retrospect, it begins to make sense. Remember how we have been discussing that the Coming of Mashiach is compared to Brit Milah, specifically the Brit Milah of Yitzchak Avinu?? Well is it the Brit Milah of Mashiach? Or maybe, just maybe, the Brit Milah of his son? Doubtfully it would refer to the Brit Milah of Mashiach since we are talking about Ben David coming as an adult. Now as we have recently reviewed in the Comments on this post, the 271 x 7 years from the year 70ce and the Churban Bayit Sheini to 1967 takes us to the "Birth" of Mashiach, not the Brit Milah quite yet at that time. In order for the 8th day to be Brit Milah on Shavuot, the 6th of Siwan, "the baby had to be born" on the 28th of Iyar, 7 days before Shavuot. Now that is what happened in 1967 (5727) with the Unification of Yerushalayim.

So how has the Brit Milah of Yemot HaMashiach been established in 5776 specifically on the day of Shavuot itself? We start with the day the universe was conceived on the 25th of Adar (sheini), and what happened on that day in 5776. And it started with a brit milah on that very day in the Shaarei Chesed neighborhood of Yerushalayim where the father could not attend the Brit of his own son under orders from Defense Minister Bogie Yaalon. And from there we progressed.... continued.... Those who can put two and two together will figure this out. Personally, I am blown away by this discovery because so much is dependent on the Arizal's timeline chart.

So what gripe does HaShem have with Disney at the -50th Gate? It is obvious as the nose on my face that HaShem has a big big problem with Disney at the -50th Gate in America. Omar Mateen even cased out Downtown Disney BEFORE blowing away 49 homosexuals at a bar on Shavuot. And just to drive home the point that HaShem has issues with Disney, He sends an alligator to bite to death a two year old patron at one of the resorts specifically at the Magic Kingdom. The Grand Floridian is specifically at the Magic Kingdom along with two other resorts. Well there you go. From the onset of the life of Walt Disney, all of the characters in almost all of Disney's original movies consistently would solve their problems in their movies using Kishuf, so much so that the first Mickey Mouse full length movie was the Sorcerer's Apprentice!! The Magic Kingdom was almost totally about Kishuf especially the heart of the Magic Kingdom, Fantasyland. I am sorry to point out the Emeth, but apparently HaShem is not very pleased about all that Kishuf (witchcraft). That is my take on these events. By the way, Epcot Center's view of Disney's view of a Utopian world order has got to anger HaShem too! So combine Disney's propagation of Kishuf (witchcraft) to children and his view of what world peace without G-d should be all about, HaShem apparently is not pleased that Disney corrupted the souls of so many millions of people with his view of problem solving for children through magic and his view of Utopian world peace. HaShem is NOT in the kishuf, and He is totally absent from Disney's view of Utopia at Epcot. If these events had not happened, we would never have really known for sure and I surely would never have pointed this out. ....I am sure that this last comment will be controversial, but so be it.

Sorry, the name of the Film with Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice included in it was Fantasia, but the observation about Kishuf holds with almost all of Walt Disney's original films, not including his adventure films, but almost all of his other films. They invariably are about using witchcraft or "magic", not sleight of hand, to solve problems especially for children. How impressionable were all these movies about using magic (witchcraft) on the children of the 1930s and 1940s?

Anyone know what the theme song of the Magic Kingdom is? or what the musical intro to almost every Walt Disney television production of the 1970s and 1980s was? When You Wish Upon a Star. It is the essence of Avodah Zarah. As a matter of fact, an idolater starting with Galut Bavel was called in halakhah Aku"M, the acronym for Oveid Kochavim, worshiper or servant of Stars. Thinking about this happening as we were growing up as children in America where Disney was like apple pie and Chevrolet should send warning flags shooting up in the air in retrospect. And yes, it was Jiminy Cricket who sang this song in Pinocchio praying to the Cosmos (the Stars) that a wooden puppet might yet have life. Disney is steeped in Kishuf, totally and completely. Perhaps we should totally limit our exposure from now on since it is too late to do that from the time we were children.

And an even bigger problem. In all of Disney's fantasy productions, all the bad witches were ugly, but the good witches were invariably beautiful, something that is utterly fallacious at its essence. Good and Evil have little to do with Beauty vs. Ugliness, very very little. The two concepts are totally disconnected, but with Disney along with a little help from the Wizard of Oz, this fallacious idea was foisted upon America in the 1930s and 1940s. Now that America is at -50, it is time to separate from its most poisonous ideals that we were inundated with as children.

Yes, it was Arov, a wild animal coming out of the lake and killing a child at one of the Magic Kingdom resorts at Disney World. I can't even begin to speak of the horror to the parents, but keep in mind that the 7 Seas Lagoon and and Magic Kingdom have been serving Disney World patrons for over 45 years. I believe that this is the first such bizarre tragedy of a wild animal killing a Disney resort patron in that entire stretch of 45 to 46 years. The fact that it happened within two days of the other main tragedy on Shavuot in Orlando begs for analysis. Add to this that Omar Mateen, yemach shmo, had cased out Disney World for a potential attack back in April but had decided on the Pulse club/bar for homosexuals for his attack and that this was a highly worldwide reported on case of a wild animal attack at the Magic Kingdom. Cancellations to the Magic Kingdom have skyrocketed. It is a double or triple curse against Disney because of the horror and its proximity to the much more horrific Orlando attack two days earlier. There is too much there that begs for analysis even if the horror of what the parents saw in front of their eyes is not open for that analysis.

I am just on edge about what HaQodesh Baruch Hu has planned next to bring down the edifice of Western Civilization and its corrupt value system. Apparently He has put up with so much from the West (Malkhut Edom) over the course of 2100 years. He has let certain things slide because from a hashgachic perspective certain things were halakhically permissible but utterly corrosive to the the culture. Disney's emphasis on magic to solve the problems of children was one of those things that accelerated the destruction of American culture since the 1930s, and now HaShem is showing us precisely that.

Years ago I felt very strongly about this. I personally had a neder to not return to Disney World or Disneyland, but my future wife had never been there. She wanted to go. So we asked a shaylah from our Rav. He said that it was permissible although he found my shaylah fascinating. So I went before "Beit Din" and annulled my neder. But I remember certain things from watching Disney movies growing up. I even asked my mother at the time was it right when Mary Poppins "blew away" all the ugly nannies who were applying for a job to take care of the Bank kids (as M. Poppins was magically descending from Cloud Nine holding her umbrella and her suitcase/bag of tricks)? Really what did the ugly nannies do wrong to deserve that? They were applying for work. So this witchy nanny then has the right to blow away her competition? You laugh. But think it through. What is the message to our children when we watch such things with amusement? You think it does not affect the minds and souls of young children? Yes, the effect is insidious because this type of thing is repeated over and over again in Disney movies, even if we choose to pretend that it is not. So after all these messages over the past week, I am reconsidering reinstating my neder.

There was a time twenty-five years ago when I would go to New York City looking for a shidduch. I would meet with shadchanim including amongst many others, Esther Jungreis at her Hineini Center on West End Ave. I stayed with friends from years ago at their condo/apartment across the street on West End Ave. I went about twice a year, but each time was different. Sometimes I stayed with other friends in Borough Park. Sometimes to my chagrin I rented cars, and to my chagrin I would go outside to move my car at 7:45am because at 8am the street cleaning hours would begin, and lo and behold the police officer would have already ticketed my rental car with an outlandish fine by writing a time that had not yet passed on the ticket!. So I stopped renting cars when going to New York, too much of a pain. On two occasions I called up the first Geulah Watcher that I knew about from the early 1990s, Rav Mendel Kessin. I believe that he lived in Flatbush, not sure, but I think his house was in Flatbush. He sold some of his amazing Torah tapes out of his garage, and I would meet with him at the entrance to his garage. I still have those tapes from years ago. One of them on Yosef as an extension of Ya'akov Avinu (to ultimately distinguish between the roles of Mashiach ben Yosef and Mashiach ben David.)

Here is his latest. He no longer does his shiurim on cassette tapes. His shiurim are all on YouTube now. The Internet has truly changed matters.

I would just point out to Rav Kessin that now that Edom is at -50 and that we here in Israel are still at -49, the Satan is working overtime to bring us down to -50 here in Israel. So that when Lapid strengthens the Reform movement, he believes that it will lead to legislation allowing for the State of Israel itself to marry homosexuals with Reform rabbis officiating, G-d forbid, for instance. The difference between us at -49 and America at -50 (at least one of the differences) is that while Israel only officially recognizes homosexual unions which have been performed elsewhere, the nations at -50 actually perform the marriages (sanctifying the homosexual act) and grant the original marriage certificates to the homosexuals. That is one of the principle differences between America at -50 and Israel at -49. So it serves the Satan's purposes, to remove this distinction by, G-d forbid, certifying Reform rabbis who would actually perform gay marriages here and would therefore allow the State of Israel to grant the original certificates, G-d forbid x 3.

My only question to Rav Kessin might be, why remain in America at -50? Aren't there inherent dangers at remaining in America at -50 where there is no floor except spiritual quicksand leading to an Abyss?? Is it not dangerous to remain as if America was the same place that it has been for the last 240 years?

So nu, Rav Kessin, Obama has succeeded in his goal of destroying the United States. Dear G-d! He has almost achieved his objective! Does Borough Park or Flatbush have a spiritual barrier protecting it from Bensonhurst or Prospect Park, nearby or adjoining neighborhoods!!

Listen to what he says about Trump. so so true. He is a guy who likes Jews, but what an egomaniac!! Yes, but an egomaniac can be so, so dangerous. Just ask Daniel Chamudot about Nebuchadnezzar, another guy who loved to see his name or a statue of himself in pure gold! On a dime, he could change his whim and on an emotional impulse he could totally reverse himself...like Nebuchadnezzar. That would make him so so dangerous.

WHAT covenant. Is this the crackpot history that Glenn Beck has been promoting. People should take notice that all these conservatives, especially those like Beck, had vehemently complained about the bathroom issue are NOW extolling how the US does allow and protect the homosexual lifestyle. It is now as if the homosexual lifestyle is NOW a "virtue".

Considering that Yishmael claims moral superiority it is no wonder THEY are the vehicle that "imposes" a morality on Edom. I suspect it may be Hashem's way of punishing the wickedness of the Xtian nations. One only has to look at all the violence on TV and film, including immorality, and see that Yishmael uses that same violence seen on film and inflicts it upon Edom. It's as if Hashem says, "You want to Watch realistic violence, then I will visit That upon You."

You are right about this Sharbano. And given that the moral confusion of Glenn Beck and others has descended to the level of defending the homosexual lifestyle in the face of an Islamic murderous rampage, I would suggest that both you and Rav Kessin get out of there as soon as possible. There is no floor at -50. The shifting sands of the American beasts at -50 are a veritable hell on earth.

There is no telling at which point the shifting sands of dark moral forces at -50 will just swallow you up. I realize that this flies in the face of what your Rav, who has decided to remain there, might say. "This is America," they will say, "and nothing will seriously go wrong." That is the thought process. As Rav Kessin says, America is Edom light. Well I am here to tell you that America just became Edom Dark.

America DID have that Covenant with G-d at one time from the time of its founding. George Washington did swear to G-d that the new nation would be a covenant people, and those who signed the US Constitution basically said, "Amen". We Jews even recognize that American Covenant by calling the United States Artzot haBrit instead of HaArtzot HaMe'uchadot. There is no other way to translate that word Brit. It means covenant. But over Sefirat HaOmer 5776 (or should we call it Sefirat HaOmar), that covenant has ceased to exist. Don't expect to see evidence, now that it is gone, that it, the American Covenant, at one time was alive and well. Those days are over. There lies the former Lands of the Covenant from 1776 until 5776. R.I.P.

Don't ask me why, but I am waiting for July 4th, 2016, for the ultimate and major turning point. We have arrived AT SHAAR HANUN, but the true freedom, at least for me personally I feel, will arrive on that specific day. Do you have the same feeling? There are a number of other possible dates for turning points, for instance 17 Tammuz. But for me personally I expect it on July 4th. Exactly 240 years to the day, in THEIR calendar. It's their country after all.

We were wandering for 40 years in the desert. I remember July 4th 1996 very clearly as though it were yesterday. On that day, July 4th 2016, the 40 years of wandering will be over. Whoever makes it to that day, and comes out OK, will be fortunate.

I am seeing wondrous revelations of Mashiach that I cannot share at this time, but Hashem is truly returning the throne of David to his descendants. Everything will be revealed when Mashiach comes, and I am getting amazing revelations already. Stuff I could not have imagined ever.

By the way, yesterday I tried to access the database of the names of families descending of David, the one from Susan Roth the link to which was provided by Dov, and it was non-functional. I wonder if it was a glitch, or somebody is trying to block this information from being spread, now that we have made the connection between Netzach and Meir. All of a sudden there is a lot of interest in this information, and of course it is anathema to our enemies, to the Erev Rav in charge, and to Edom. So they might be trying to block Am Yisrael from finding out the truth about themselves.

By the way, Esser Agoroth mentioned on his latest post that Lehava told of a Xtian event at Kever David at 7:00 "tomorrow" ( I can't tell if tomorrow was today Monday, or tomorrow Tuesday), in which the Sifrei Torah and Sifrei Kodesh will be taken out, and replaced with Xtian items. Idol worship there again.

Thanks, Dan, I am so glad you were there; I heard about it too late.

Which clip, please? Could you give a link?

I know, JEWISH PRESENCE MEANS EVERYTHING! Jews have tremendous koach of Tefillah. Specially at a holy place. All you people who visit the Kotel, why don't you just make a hop, a skip and a jump to Har Zion, it is only a 2 minute walk away. Go pay your respects to Melech David, even if only for 10 minutes. Show your presence. If everybody does that, the Kever won't be abandoned! We need to get the ball rolling. And please pass the word around. it's amazing how many people simply don't think about it. Time to raise consciousness, little by little the idea will sink in.

Thank you.

DS: OMG, what happened to the DavidicDynasty.org website? It went poof as if it never existed? Why did Susan Roth close down her website? Are they trying to hide access to the last names like Ettinger which the site said was one of the principle last names in the Davidic line? bizarre bizarre bizarre.

What were the galachim celebrating at King David's tomb today? Does anyone know why today?

The difference between going to Rashbi's tomb on Lag B'Omer and to King David's tomb on Shavuot is that King David's Yahrzeit is on Shavuot day itself, a day of Issur Melachah. So it is a responsibility of those who live in Yerushalayim or those visiting Yerushalayim itself over Chag Shavuot to go to King David's tomb for Tikkun Leil Shavuot if they live within a reasonable walking distance of his tomb. For the rest of us, we can go on Isru Chag, but we can't go to the tomb on the day of his Yahrzeit itself. I have no idea why those who live in Yerushalayim within walking distance are neglectful of this. It would seem to me to be like a no-brainer. If you can walk to the Kotel for davening at sunrise on Shavuot, you can go to King David's tomb for all night learning before walking to the Kotel. I hate to think that people are willfully not anticipating Geulah by not going to his tomb for Tikkun Leil Shavuot.

Well, well, well, one piece of good news. BritAm, Yair Davidiy's outfit, basically copied Susan Roth's list and pasted it on their website. So here is the Davidic Dynasty last name list emboldened in yellow near the bottom of the webpage. Ettinger and the Dayans of Aleppo (some of whom live in P'sagot) are all there on that list. I don't agree with all of Ya'ir Davidiy's assertions, but he does thorough work. And he did preserve Susan Roth's list which has been otherwise scrubbed from the Internet. I know that Avraham Feld who is the brother of a very good friend of mine knows Ya'ir and his work very well. The 2 Felds are both families of tremendous chessed.

I try not to be a follower of conspiracy theories, and I would hate to say that there was a true conspiracy to try to bury the last names on this list, but looking at what is going on in Great Britain now, I have to wonder. Jo Cox, the murdered MP, was vehemently against leaving the EU in large part because she seemed to have an affinity for Muslim refugees. So a "radical" Britain firster murders her conveniently one week before the referendum. The only real effect of murdering her is to achieve the opposite goal that murdering her was supposed to achieve, to create national sympathy for the things that Jo Cox cared about. So support for staying in the EU is now gathering steam. The Yetzer HaRa was on the mat with this Brexit Referendum. Britain's leaving would have been an unrecoverable blow against the Globalist enterprise. The Globalists were desperate. So conveniently Jo Cox is murdered in order to achieve the desired reaction amongst a certain emotionally driven element of any constituency which exists as a percentage of any nation's electorate. All one has to do is think about this. The murderer, by doing this precisely now, was obviously going to achieve the opposing result that he supposedly murdered her for. And now Brexit polls are neck and neck. The Leave momentum has been "conveniently" halted at the precisely right moment. The odds that this was a Globalist inspired murder because they really had no other recourse to prevent themselves from dying on the mat are very high IMHO. ...Now don't get me to be Alex Jones. I can't go that far.

Yes, the surname Ettinger clearly comes from the known Davidic surname Ittinga.

Thanks DS: Yes, two asterisks means that there is some doubt into the authenticity of that surname being from the Davidic line, needing further research. One asterisk means that the surname is from a Primary family branch. So no asterisks simply means that the surname is likely from the Davidic Dynasty as a break off from one of the Primary family last names. Ittinga and Ettinger have no asterisk.

קבר דוד המלך
Baruch Hashem on Shavuot there was an enormous flocking of visitors. Jews from all over Yerushalayim came to pay homage to our King. I wonder if anyone has an estimate of the numbers.
Lehavdil, today was the pentecost according to the Greek orthodox church, whereas the vatican celebrated the same unholiday one month ago. (As is well known, when the current common calendar, the gregorian, was established by the roman church about 400 years ago, the eastern orthodox churches stuck with the old one).
To our great shame, the romans actively practice Avoda Zarah in the room above King David's tomb (which they call "the room of the last supper"). They were handed the place as a gift by the evil vulture and his cohorts. Now along come the greeks, and also want to hold their ceremony in that unholy place, but the romans wont let them. So medinat yisrael consoles them: no problem - we'll let you do it downstairs in the Jewish Shul! Busha VeCherpa!

Dov and DS,
Ostensibly the difference in popularity between Meron on Lag Baomer and Har Tzion on Shavuot is the nature of the festivities. Who isn't attracted by the soaring music and dancing in Meron, non-stop for at least 48 hours? On Shavuot we come to Har Tzion for a solemn reciting of the Tikun or Tehilim. Also, visiting Har Tzion, even on Yom Tov, one can't help being reminded of our Galut, so more so on weekdays.
One exception though: just as on Lag BaOmer, we take part in Rabbi Shimon's tremendous joy of ascending to Olam Haba, which happened on this day -
Every Motzei Shabbat we get a chance to take part in King David's enormous joy on discovering that he had another whole week to live.
Everyone is invited to the public Seudat Melevae Malka at his Tomb. Every week: Seuda KeYad Hamelech, singing and dancing, which in quantity still can't compete with Meron, but the Simcha - it can't be described, you have to come and witness it yourself. For those who don't live nearby, in the summer it can be a bit of a problem - the police, at the demand of the neighboring galachim, come and shut down the music at 12:00 midnight sharp. So if you don't have accommodations for an entire Shabbat in Yerushalayim, you'll have to wait until the days start shortening.

I was actually at one of those Melavot Malkah at Heichal David Hall last Fall. It was a great experience. Because I live 23 minutes away by car from Shaar Tzion (when I brave Wadi Al Joz that is) and if there is no traffic so that I can drive at the maximum speed, I could probably make it during the Summer. We are not in the Techum of Yerushalayim, but by car we are close enough when there are no traffic problems or jams.

If Meir is The Man of Spirit, where is his Cave of Adullam where 400 mighty misfits can gather unto him? Surely David was not tracked in his comings and his goings with the latest in satellite technology which is equally being used on Yehonatan Pollard too in New York City. Both I believe have a 7pm curfew in their respective home halfway imprisonments. One is imprisoned by satellite technology in the United States after 30 years in jail. The other is being carefully watched in Ramat Beit Shemesh to ascertain whether or not he "breaks out" to actually come to Yerushalayim violating his terms of being watched for no other reason than certain people are very scared of him. I am not sure that the Malbim or anyone else could have predicted this state of affairs in any commentary on Tanakh. It is beyond surreal.

Mark: Chaos to bring down the Globalists (four headed leopard folks) from their high perch and put them in competition with the lion with eagle's wings folks (the rugged individualists and nationalists) will likely cause the disintegration of both much faster. So when two of the beasts from Daniel chapter 7 destroy each other, the third beast, Dubiel (Bear Power) will go forth to take over the world. In particular, the eastern "foot" of the Roman Empire, Constantinople, will be fair game for the Russians and the Persians. This would put the Geulah into overdrive.

But G-d has His plan, and so much is counter-intuitive. So we will remain patient if either result takes place. Also with Brexit, the unknown financial factors on the Chaos meter will come into play. The Euro might very well collapse over the course of one week with a British exit. If Brexit loses, the Globalists will chalk up a major victory into bringing the world into a tighter grip while Freedom will truly be on the Run. Given the two scenarios, Chaos is better for the Final Redemption at this time, but on the other hand, a Unified World Order would most definitely speed up a unified attempt to divide Yerushalayim too. So counter-intuitively, a Globalist rout could also speed up the process too, but in a vastly different way since bringing the troops of world govt. to divide Yerushalayim may be what HaShem wants to glorify His Name. So total chaos in the world would definitely pre-occupy the world to thinking about its own survival. That would make this process apparently less painful for us here in Israel who want the world to start suffering for its sins of international Jew hatred already....But G-d is more patient than you or I. So He knows which path is best.

Anon: To be a descendant of Malkhut, one does not have to be a descendant of Yechoniah's firstborn, Shealtiel. He had other children in Babylon even if the firstborn descendants of Shealtiel became the Exilarchs of the Roshei Galuta, an important position in Galut for almost 1300 years. Remember that another descendant of Yechoniah (Yehoiachin), the last King of Yehudah with living descendants was Zerubavel, who was the son of Yehoiachin's thirdborn son, Pedayah. And yes, Zerubavel unlike most of the others made Aliyah with the 42,000 who returned to Tzion. So in the merit of that, there are many who say that Mashiach will come from his descendants, not from the descendants of the Exilarchs who remained behind. I would tend to agree though, that Mashiach will most likely come from the seed of Yehoiyachin (Joachin or Joaquin in Spanish), the last King of Yehudah who was allowed to bear descendants after spending 37 years in a Babylonian prison cell. Nebuchadnezzar's son, Evil Merodach, let him out of jail at that time and he bore seven sons. The First Temple was actually destroyed 11 years after he was exiled along with most of the princes of the royal Judean family while his Uncle Tzidkiyahu was allowed to reign until the Temple's destruction eleven years later. (Tzidkiyahu sons were all slain before his eyes and therefore he had no male heirs.) So from this we see that Yechoniah's sons have yet to sit on the throne of Yehudah or Yisrael, but only because of his teshuvah in a Babylonian prison cell will one male descendant yet sit on that throne. Yirmiyahu's curse was therefore lifted because of the power of teshuvah. II Chronicles 3 makes it fully clear that any of Yechoniah's seven sons might be the ancestor to Mashiach ben David.

I don't want to get involved in "palace intrigue", but Zecharia HaNavi in Chapter 6 identifies Zerubavel as being Tzemach who would lay the foundation of the 2nd Temple. And because of this merit, his descendants will one day reign. This should have happened at the the time of the Chashmonaim, but the Kohanim did not want to give up the throne of Malkhut, a big costly error on their part since they warred with each other frequently and ultimately invited Pompey of Rome into the country to settle a civil war between brothers.

The conspiracy theory about the murder of British MP Jo Cox?

As Reb Dov has written, the idea is that she was murdered by a mentally ill man, who shouted a British Nationalist sentiment, in order for the public to be sympathetic to her pro-European Union views, as a tribute to her memory.

What I have found interesting was both the timing of the murder, just as the Brexit decision was making a clear lead in the prediction polls, and also the vigil held in her memory; a candlelit vigil in Parliament Square.
Photos of this were prominent in the newspapers.
She was described as "Perfect" at her funeral.

Does this remind readers of anything?
It reminds me of a sort of "pseudo beautification" that happened after the death of Princess Diana.

As sad as these two deaths were, leaving behind young children with their mothers, the reaction was akin to the death of someone "Pure" who died for others's sins.
Again, remind you of anyone?

A friend of mine thinks it highly unlikely that the murder was a set-up. He believes in such a case, the murdered would have in turn been killed in order to stop him telling the truth.
But what if the murderer was insane, and further had his mind altered by drugs or electric shocks or surgery, and so was incapable of being a reliable source of information?

So there are Reasons to Gather all the Reshayim in the World Together Under One Flag If a nation historically has been really evil toward its Jews and the Jews of Eretz Yisrael, it has to be supremely judged at the End of Days. Zecharia HaNavi tells us that the one Crime at the very end for which a nation will be judged is if it gathers with the rest of the world against Yerushalayim to divide it. One might think that Britain would be in the in between category. The British Govt immediately near the end of WW1 did issued the Balfour Declaration to "grant" the Land of Israel to the Jews.

But whatever merit the British had at the end of WW1 was quickly erased at the onset of WW2 when Chamberlain with the approval of the British Parliament issued the famous White Paper to completely cut off Jewish immigration (well actually to limit Aliyah to a measly Aliyah of 15,000 Jews per year!) to the Holy Land starting in 1939 precisely at the moment when millions of Jews in Europe needed an immediate homeland to avert their impending death. So at that moment Britain rejoined the very bad camp from which it had emerged as "much better" at the end of WW1. So the British by parliamentary majority in the House of Commons became active accessories to the Shoah. You can't convince G-d that after spending days on end with Hitler to sign his famous Munich Pact that Chamberlain did not know what Hitler was planning. Not only did he know, but by closing the border to the Land of the Jews, Chamberlain and the country he represented became an accessory to genocide. So the British nation for that and so many other pogroms from the Middle Ages rejoined the very bad category. Pointedly even during the darkest hours of WW2, not even Winston Churchill had the parliamentary majority to reverse Chamberlain's White Paper declaration. Since Churchill was against the White Paper's passage in March of 1939, he personally wanted to suspend this perfidious White Paper. (I am not sure that it would have made a difference to do so after the Wannsee Conference in January of 1942, but before January of 1942 it may have made a difference.) So yes, Britain deserves to "be with the worst of nations" as they gather against Yerushalayim. For that to happen, Britain likely must be part of the EU by Remaining with the EU and its Amaleqite tendencies.

This is what I mean when I refer to the counter-intuitive nature of HaShem's plan. What might seem to be good or the right thing for bringing the Final Redemption, might turn out to NOT be the case because the precisely opposite thing or event might be the thing which needs to happen!!

The Reshayim of the World uniting under one flag would also apply to the UN, even more so since the UK would still be part of the UN globalist system in the event of Brexit.

On the one hand British colonialism (and Western colonialism in general) liberated the Jews in muslim-dominated lands from the wretched status of dhimmitude, on the other hand the British also produced the likes of Glubb Pasha who led the Arabs alongside Nazi war criminals against Israel in 1948, with the UK foreign office being one of the main Islamophile Arabist bodies against Israel and Jews next to the US State Department.

Given the EU is shaky grounds, Hashem granting a Brexit would help accelerate the disintegration of an Anti-Jewish/Israeli Pro-Islam body whose laying down the welcoming mat for muslim terrorists only serves to propagate Jew-hatred especially with the likes of prominent "Jews" such as George Soros promoting the Remain camp or open borders advocates such as Barbara Learner Spectre who believes Jews need to at the forefront of Europe becoming Eurabia that serves to revive Euro-Nationalist Jew-hatred.

Britain was entrusted by the League of Nations to manage the Palestinian Mandate so that they could turn it over to the Jews for the Jewish homeland.

Instead Britain carved off 80% of the Mandate and created the hitherto-fore unknown "nation" of Trans Jordon (now known as Jordon which currently consists of about 70% to 80% of Arabs who call identify themselves as Palestinians (being Arabs who lived in Palestinian Mandate area for at least 2 years prior to the declaration of State or who descend from those Arabs)).

I think it was Churchill who signed over the 80% to the Arabs and who made the comment that he had created a nation just by signing a document.

On the current trajectory, it looks like Britain will likely lose a significant portion of its country to Muslims and Arabs.

Re: Rav Kessin and Rav Dov on the future of America and Israel.

I found it interesting to see that Rav Kessin was one of your early mentors. What’s perplexing though, is that you both seem to have a different take on Trump and the future of America. The jumping off stone for this might be the perception of Obama’s role. Regarding the latter, I suspect your positions might be closer.

Rav Kessin, holds (and he is not alone in this) that Obama’s role has been to weaken America, (if I might add – particularly white , Christian, straight, male America), while inversely strengthening the Muslim world. It seems you would not take issue with this. If so, I stand corrected. Even though you and Rav Kessin probably share a common approach to Obama’s role, you’re real difference of opinion, is deeper than a political race, but really it’s about the future of America.

The question is to what end is Hashem orchestrating this, i.e. why Obama? Is this really the downward spiral of the United States, from which there is no turning back? Have they crossed the event horizon on their way down a black hole? Or is it a wound from which there may still be a recovery? If someone grabs the rudder, may it still be possible to cut hard and steer the ship of state away from doom and disaster?

It seems that you take the position that the 50th gate has been crossed and it’s downhill from here, and Trump will merely finish or even accelerate the descent down. Whereas Rabbi Kessin seems to think, all is not lost for America. Perhaps like Nineveh, Hashem is not willing to give up on them so easily. He has shown them the abyss, and let Obama bring them to the very brink, but is giving them a last chance to choose the one captain who might have a chance of steering them away. Trump, with whatever flaws he may have, seems to be the only one who can seize the rudder and turn the ship off its disastrous course. I guess we’ll have our answer, by November at the latest, though many seem to think we won’t need to wait that long to see where this is going.

The other issue, which is closer to home for us here in Israel, is what is Hashem’s game plan of putting in a president so hostile to Israel and so pro Muslim? Other than bringing America to its knees, for whatever reason Divine Providence required (perhaps America’s rejection of God?), the impact on Israel seemed very dark and threatening. Thankfully, except for one looming exception (Iran), it has not panned out. Thank God, we weren’t invaded by an international force, America threatened, but did not succeed in forcing us from Yehuda and Shomron, they tried to put their willing proxy, the Labor Party in power, but again, thank God, did not succeed. Despite their best efforts for an Arab Spring and shoring up our enemies, thank God again, they’re mostly in chaos and at each other’s throats. So on one hand, it looks like we miraculously dodged the Obama bullet, which after what Sharon succeeded in doing, shouldn’t be taken for granted.

However, the guerrilla still lurking in the room is Iran. Where is that going? Is that the essence of the Divine Plan for Obama vis-à-vis Israel, enabling Iran? Nobody but Obama would have or could have done such a thing. If Hashem wants to bring us to our knees without utterly destroying us, while at the same time, purging our population of the enemy within, perhaps that will be Trump’s role as a facilitator? Like in the exodus from Egypt, when Hashem “took a nation from within a nation” that is going to have to repeat itself. Only this time, Bnei Yisrael will be the ones to stay. Only Trump has the disposition and fortitude to allow it. If God forbid it’s Hillary, she won’t help us anymore than she helped the poor guys at Ben Ghazi. I think it’s plausible to take Rav Kessin’s position, and not write off America just yet, and think of Trump as the antidote to Obama in repairing America. But even if both Trump and America fail, God will still orchestrate our salvation, one way or another. May we see it soon.

Thank you for you wonderful insights.

Neshama: Maybe we should not laugh at the idea that Bibi reads this blog?? He has a lot to lose if Meir Ettinger is who apparently what some "mole" might be terrified about who, at the very least, he MIGHT be.

Tishbi: If one wants to live in the belly of the beast in a golden cage at -50, one will create scenarios where at least one incompetent or worse character is more than he really is. Aliyah is hard. Aliyah from a Cage gilded with gold is even harder. There are millions of Jews stuck in that golden American cage as that cage has sunk into the sewer at -50.... over Shavuot too. Who could even ignore the fact that America sinking to -50 on the very day that we individually reach or are supposed to reach +50 is more than a bit terrifying? If they are choosing to stay, even if it is to learn Torah in the desert, they have to convince themselves along with millions of others, that the sewer does not smell so bad. They can remain there for at least a few more years. It is our job here in Israel to tell them that their sense of spiritual smell has been jaded by being in close proximity to the sewer for so many years already. So now that they have taken the plunge into the sewer over Sefirat HaOmar on the ship of their fellow Americans, the perfume that they are using to prevent themselves from being morally asphyxiated by their surroundings is giving them a false perception that it does not smell quite as bad as it really does. For G-d's sake, Trump himself is inviting trans-gender confused people off the street to use the bathroom of the opposite sex in his New York and New Jersey properties! and he is going to make America great again? Would Adams or Jefferson ever have been so confused by the gender preference of their fellow Americans? It is our job to inform them that remaining in the sewer at -50 is not the place for Talmidei Chachamim.

Whether there should be any continuing Jewish presence in America, or for that matter anywhere outside of E.Y., is another discussion and I don’t disagree that the future of the Jewish people is here in Israel. In fact I’d love to hear your take on the Chabad infrastructure of “shlichim” throughout the world. Is it the Divine will to retain Jewish outposts?

But regarding the future of millions of good Americans, will they all be taken down? America is not unblemished, but still a nation with lots of merits. As Rav Kessin says, they are the best of Esau. Trump’s transgender gesture, may be misguided, and not well thought out, but I don’t think it’s a true reflection of his whole world view. Might be too harsh to wholly condemn him for that.

Yes, aspects of America do seem to have hit bottom. The question is, like the people of Nineveh, might they still be thrown a lifeline? Is the upcoming election their chance to grab that line?

There are still excellent people in America. I personally don't feel it's fair to condemn them all, judge them all. America has an abundance of absolutely wonderful people. Of course there is the opposite too, in greatly increasing numbers; but should the good people be thrown under the bus??? Is that Divine Justice?

Re: Trump: this is what somebody I am in touch with, a Xtian had to say. I think it's quite wise, please take the Xtian references with a grain of salt:

"Many Christians doubt the character of Donald Trump, listen to the mainstream media, and refuse to acknowledge that he could very well be God's instrument in saving this country from falling into the hands of those that want to divide and destroy our nation, bringing it into submission to a New World Socialist-Communist Order. Of course, there are things in Trump's life and character that don't pass the Christian litmus test for many. But since when have history's great leaders all been Christians or men of God? There were probably no doubt things in King Cyrus's life that wouldn't pass the "salvation litmus test" as well, but he still was God's instrument in backing God's people and allowing them to return to Jerusalem and restore God's house. And since when has the world been so tightly in the grip of Satan, being ruled by Rome, with all the world's political leaders being in submission to its power? Rome's plan is to conquer and divide this country, replacing its Constitution, and establishing its world government system. But then enters DONALD TRUMP, a man who dares to go against their blueprint to destroy America as we know it. "

There is no condemnation of "people who are in Geirut in the United States." Many people are there for the correct reasons, but many are not. And even on that point we are talking about one p'gam, a serious one, but only one. On every other matter, there are fine Mentschen, the very best people, in Geirut (in the lands of our dispersion). Remember in this weeks parsha, every spy sent to spy out ERetz Yisrael was a prince, a towering gadol in Torah in the Desert. Their p'gam is that they wanted to keep it that way. The status quo was familiar to them, and G-d took wonderful care of his people in the Desert. So in the end only Kalev and Yehoshua figured it out that enduring the trauma of leaving the desert and taking on the Giants in Eretz Yisrael was what G-d wanted us to do.

And to be honest after the 6 Day War and the miracles of that war which initiated the worldwide Ba'al Teshuvah movement, one does not have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out that sometime in that 49 year process called the Ba'al Teshuvah movement, one of the moves that we were supposed to do as Ba'alei Teshuvah during that extensive period of time was the movement of Aliyah to Eretz Yisrael. Some of us figured it out. Some of us wanted to come but for the correct extenuating circumstances could not come, and some of us simply liked their gilded cage. Life in America has been exceedingly kind and sweet.....until now.

Tishbi: I think that the Gemorrah in Chullin 92 (the Masechta of Mundane slaughter or as it is known on this blog, The Masechta of Sandys. There have been two Sandys, Hurricane Sandy and Sandy Hook) describes the situation for any nation that begins to sanctify homosexual unions with Marriage Certificates that when that happens, HaShem begins to show His immediate displeasure with that state, region, or nation. He begins the process of tearing up the merit on that State, Region, or nation from previous generations because this State of affairs so upsets Him. When Hurricane Sandy took place, the only states that were hit were all states that at that time recognized homosexual unions and marriages with legal certificates (New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts, every single one of them). Almost four full years have passed since Hurricane Sandy and Sandy Hook, and the situation in America is now infinitely worse. There most definitely has not been a blazing path toward repentance on this important issue. So if He was already really upset with the state of affairs on the Eastern Seaboard where Trump blew away his opponent Ted Cruz in the New York and Acela States Primaries during Pesach, how much more upset is HaShem now that all 50 states are enjoined in this Obamanation four years later?? The situation which made the freak storm called Sandy possible almost four years ago is now orders of magnitude worse.

I hope and pray that Michele Bachmann can reach Donald Trump's spirit. A lot is riding on her attempt to do so at least. Michele stayed with a friend of mine here in Kochav Yaakov several years ago for several days. She was on a fact-finding tour as a Congressman, and she stayed at my friend's house (because he had been a lawyer for Republicans in the US Congress before he made Aliyah). She is a very special lady.

Must agree with Tishbbi and the beautiful post by DS. Listened to Rav Kessin's video and agreed with him. He makes a lot of sense. Also, Trump, not being a politician but just a regular (although wealthy) citizen doesn't have the polish of the typical politician (full of lies) whereas he spoke from the heart. He is now being mentored and made a beautiful speech the other day. Whatever he said before was just a way (he thought) of getting enough approval to be nominated, as there are many today who have sunk to the lowest level and agree with many of the 'laws' recently enacted. Who knows what good he could do and bring back the country to its foundation level. Everything, anyway, is b'ydei Shamayim.

Regarding the Yehudim coming home; that will occur no matter what once MBD is here; every true Jew on earth will be living in Eretz Yisrael.

Also with regards to Chabad and their network of kiruv centers throughout the world, ken yirbu. As long as there are Jews needing to be brought back, there have to be Rabbanim who are there to answer questions and to provide a Shabbat experience wherever those lost Jews are, before they really irreparably fall between the cracks and disappear.

This applies to anyone who goes to a place specifically to do kiruv, not just Chabad. In St. Louis for instance where Chassidut is almost non-existent, it was Aish HaTorah instead which was the main machine for kiruv in town. Obviously if they are good at that type of work, they have to go to Chu"l to do it because that is where the lost Jews are.

Tishbi: As I was davening I remembered that I answered such a question in the Comments section of the previous post. Here is my answer (copied and pasted from that post along with its time and date stamp): From May 24th which was the 31st day in the Counting of the True Omer, the one that we count upwards to +49, not the one where a mass murderer named Omar counted downwards to -49:

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.

Continued: So I would add that if someone is Chayav Kareit (spiritual excision) if they repent, they still have to expatiate their sin by suffering. So those who have fallen over the course of the last 49 years starting with the Summer of Promiscuous Immorality that began in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco concluding during Sefirat HaOmar to -50 by Shavuot 5776 still have until Rosh HaShanah 5777 to seriously repent! This would include the Great American Middle third of its culture who just recently fell below -49 lead by the candidacy of Donald Trump from the Iowa Caucuses in late January to the California "Golden State" Primary on June 7th, five days prior to Shavuot. During that journey the middle third of American culture went from -49 to -50. As you Tishbi have pointed out previously, the drop really was signified by the Super Bowl since G-d is speaking through America's circuses when the 50th Super Bowl was at 49er Stadium in San Francisco won by the Denver Bucking Broncos. That very Super Bowl was on the eve of the first primary that Donald Trump actually won, the New Hampshire Primary. The final hammer blow was supposed to be in California's Golden State Primary as signified by the Golden State Warriors who had the best regular season record in the history of professional basketball. Time is short though because this teshuvah process really can begin no later than Rosh Chodesh Elul since it has to begin BEFORE Rosh HaShanah 5777 in a serious matter. So the "40 days to repent" in Sefer Yonah should be completed no later than Yom Kippur 5777. How this is going to happen at such short notice, at this time, I have no idea!

Maybe some Torah Jew should join up with Michele Bachmann to help her infuse G-d centered spirituality into the Trump campaign. That way, he and his followers can be influenced by G-d centered values not tainted by the discussion about the triune god. ....But really time is really short. After Rosh HaShanah, 2/3rds of American culture will have been judged as spiritually dead even if they, the Waking Dead, are still alive. Sounds like a Zombie nation to me. If you live there, and if you believe that you can influence things rather quickly, you better get started right now. After Rosh HaShanah/ Hoshanah Rabbah this Fall, repenting from the Abyss is rather impossible. If it were possible, then HaShem would have waited until we fell below the 49th level of impurity before redeeming us from Mitzraim, but He did not wait, for redemption from below -49 is a spiritual impossibility.

Look how insidious; I wonder who is paying for this awful package; is it Reform Jewry, is it Rome, is it Obamanation? One thing is clear: they are trying very hard to turn Israeli Jews -"future leaders" -, into Reform Jews. The little Yiddishkeit left in even secular Jews in Israel, due to the holy air of this holy place, is being dangerously undermined with this new form of brainwashing.

This should be exposed. Had you heard of this before? I wonder what the rabbis will say about this initiative. I am sure the Women of the Wall are delighted, and the Jerusalem Open House even more: trying to bring Homosexual marriage to Israel, trying to create "leaders" who will push this garbage on us.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who surely voted to bolt from the EU, has conceded defeat by a 52 to 48 margin according to an exit poll that he respects. Remain seems to have won, but even Farage says that he hopes that the real results and not the exit polling prove him wrong. Good show for the Globalists if true. Good night, for the result is Good either way.

And who knows, Farage might still be proven wrong. Exit polling can be enormously iffy.

Gibraltar was the first to announce their result: 19322 voted for remaining and 823 voted to leave. It must be remembered that Brits in Gibraltar live in constant fear that Spain might invade them one day or just totally isolate them again as Franco did on their Rock for a number of decades. So the last thing that they want to do now is to anger an EU stalwart. Claustrophobia while trapped at the Rock of Gibraltar can be mighty convincing when your only way off the Rock is an occasional boat and one airstrip. Plus kosher food in Gibraltar is already prohibitively expensive. There are four synagogues there, each one established about 300 years ago, and yes, I have been to all four of them.

We are all familiar with the Talmudic saying that when Jacob ascends Esau descends and visa versa. Sort of like they’re on a seesaw, when one goes up the other goes down. I wonder if that applies to all aspects of Esau? Must it be a zero sum game?

In any case, almost 40 years ago, July 4, 1976 was the occasion of America’s 200th birthday. However, as fate would have it, that was the very day of Israel’s miraculous Entebbe rescue operation. However unintentional, it sort of stole the thunder from America’s big anniversary celebration. This was only underscored a few years later when Jimmy Carter’s rescue mission failed. I couldn’t help but think that this symbolizes the moment when Jacob’s side of the seesaw begins its ascendancy over Esau.

As Rav Dov points out, the 50th gate has been crossed and:
“In the Big Picture, this Summer of 5776 (beginning in May and June) is the beginning of the 50th Summer since the Summer of Promiscuous Immorality that began out in the San Francisco Bay Area of California in the Summer of 1967 (5727)”.

This summer is also the 40th year since that remarkable July 4th of 1976. America’s 240th birthday. 240 in Hebrew is both the word רם (“ram” - high, elevated, exalted) and מר (“mar” bitter). It think the duality of this gematria perfectly portrays the seesaw metaphor used here. If we see events playing out this summer showing the star of Jacob rising and Esau’s descending – it’s another sign we’re on to something here.

BTW – If you write Trump’s name in Hebrew (leaving out the Aleph), you get טרמ-ף. The first 3 letters mean before or not yet. The final letter (Peh or Peh Sofi) symbolizes a fall or a final fall. Maybe this indicates Trump coming before America’s big descent. Or, optimistically, coming to avert it?

Rav Dov – can’t thank you enough for your insights. Need time to digest it all.

They will come uncoordinated, but Hashem will demand that each nation comes by itself and not mixed...

I don't want to be so "Cavalier", but I would stay away from Cleveland during the week of the Republican National Convention. We all remember what happened the year after the avant garde Leftist third of American culture fell below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah in 1967.f We all witnessed the Spring and Summer of Assassinations in 1968. We all saw what happened to the party of the American Left, the Democratic Party Convention in Chicago in 1968. We all saw what Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden, and Abby Hoffman did to Chicago that year that summer. And that was from the far left third of the American Bell Curve. Now that the Main Street Middle third has arrived at this same point 49 years later, and now that we know that the menuvalim on the Left hate the menuvalim of the Center who are wild about Trump, what can we expect to be served on the streets of Cleveland and its environs (its eastern Lake Erie (Lake effect suburbs)....where the Jews live) during the Republican National Convention in mid-July? Ya think that there might be a tad bit of trouble? My wife is originally from South Euclid/ University Heights. There was a possibility that she would end up going there for Sheva Brachot for a nephew who was getting married in New York, precisely during that week before the 17th of Tamuz. Somehow, I was able to curtail that trip until after Tisha B'Av when another nephew is getting married in Chicago, and again there will be Sheva Brachot two blocks from "Synagogue City" with FOUR synagogues right next to each other, on Green Road separating Beachwood from University Heights. I wonder though what the "other side of Tisha B'Av" will look like in the formerly great United States. We will soon find out.

For those interested in visiting the Green Road Synagogue City area of Cleveland's suburbs, the four synagogues are 1. The Green Road Synagogue (old Ashkenazi who daven Nusach Sefard). 2. The Young Israel of Beachwood (daven Nusach Ashkenaz RCA including misheberach for the State of Israel) 3. Yavne High School for Girls which is part of the Hebrew Academy system of schools. There is a very large minyan for the male teachers with davening on Shabbat included (Chareidi Nusach Ashkenaz excluding the above misheberach for the State of Israel) 4. The Chabad of Beachwood (Nusach HaAri). Each of these synagogues are magnificent modern structures reflecting the "spiritual leaning" of the various segments within Torah Judaism in America. They are 1,2,3,4 right next door to each other (like sitting ducks in a row) in a rank and file section of South Green Road with no parallel in the entire Jewish world. It is a sight to behold, but behold it now before the 17th of Tamuz. Please don't put off any visit to the Cleveland eastern suburbs. All bets are off when the Trump train comes to town in mid-July. Again, there is no real prediction here, just a warning based on past experience when a similar spiritual barrier was crossed in 1967 and 1968 when the American Left entered menuval territory 49 years ago.

The UK to leave the EU confirmed and David Cameron to step down as Prime Minister by October.
So another General Election looms, as does possible referendums on Scotland to leave the United KIngdom, and Northern Ireland to leave the United Kingdom and be united with The Republic of Ireland.

The night before the referendum we had a strong thunderstorm, many lightning strikes and flooding.
It felt as if something was afoot.
It was hard to sleep, and I spent yesterday in a haze, exacerbated by very humid and wet weather which made it feel as if we were inside a cloud.

Looking to the future, the next Prime Minister would either be Labour's Jeremy Corbyn, a fanatically anti-Israel politician, or the extrovert Conservative Boris Johnson, a mop haired Eton educated classical scholar and orator, ex-Mayor of London, of part Turkish ancestry with a chequered love life, who supports a "two state solution" but is also strongly keen on Israel to exist as a state and to do business with Israel.

And what will Gibraltar do now that they voted by over 95% to stay in the EU. Will Gibraltar now secede from the UK too?? Will they allow themselves to be Anschlussed by Spain whose economy in one day just took a 12% dive??

Hayom Yom: This is the actual time of the "footsteps of Mashiach."1 It is therefore imperative for every Jew to seek his fellow's welfare - whether old or young - to inspire the other to teshuva (return), so that he will not fall out - G-d forbid - of the community of Israel who will shortly be privileged, with G-d's help, to experience complete redemption.

And on that note, we see that Great Britain might not only lose Scotland, but it may also lose its capital city, London, as London seeks independence from England. The same Cameron that is quitting the PMship in three months time (if he has that long before total collapse) lamented recently that Yerushalayim's eastern neighborhoods are part of our capital Yerushalayim. Like all Edomites everywhere, he insists that our true spiritual capital is in Tel Aviv on the West Coast of Eretz Yisrael. So midah keneged Midah, the new capital of England when London secedes, will likely have to be the present capital of Wales who also voted to Leave, Cardiff on the West Coast of the British Island. Coincidence?

In short, the national capital of the New United Kingdom will likely be in Wales, and that would be in Cardiff, which is the the capital the sub-national nation of Wales. The the Prince of Wales would actually build his castle...in Wales! I would assume that the English will have to find their own "provincial" capital of sub-nation called England itself. There might need to be a lottery to find such a capital, maybe another referendum!! Manchester? Liverpool? Cambridge? Have you ever heard of such a thing before?

Speaking of America’s 240th anniversary and other anticipated events this summer:

240 happens to be the gematria of Amalek (עמלק) and the word for doubt (ספק). As such, this attribute has been attributed to Amalek. This people has been in the forefront of the battle against faith and belief.

240 also happens to be the gematria of Los Angeles (לוס אנגלס). As mentioned in an earlier post, 240 symbolizes the opposing attributes of elevated and bitter. And Amalek’s grandfather, Esau, shares an opposing fate from Jacob, like 2 on a seesaw.

In Amalekian fashion, the United States has been banishing God and Godly values, under one pretext or another. The country is hardly recognizable from what is once was. Could this conjunction of 240 be an allusion to a face-off with the American version of Amalek this summer in L.A.? L.A. being the epicenter of America’s most avant-guarde state, The state which prides itself as being at the cutting edge of America’s cultural evolution or some would say – devolvement.

1776 was a monumental year for Esau, this summer of 5776 may be one for Jacob. Will there be a standoff and a reversal of fortunes between the forces of Amalek and his opposition? Not before too long, the doubt (ספק) will be removed.

BTW Somebody posted “Independence Day Resurgence”. Today’s Drudge Headline: “Independence Day Dud”. A subtle sign that instead of resurging, the country is petering out? Let’s see what this July 4th season brings, resurgence or degeneration…

Tishbi: Correct except the real date in question in 1776 was that July 4th, 1776 was...drum roll...The 17th of Tamuz 5536!

Since the American fall to -50 was really on the day of the California Primary, five days before Shavuot, as spoken of before on this blog, when on Shavuot itself (the spiritual gate to +50) Sefirat HaOmar butchered 49 homosexuals at America's spiritual gate to -50, the lead up to the 17th of Tamuz 5776 will also be five days beforehand. The 12th day of Tamuz is the first day of the Republican Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. The Amaleq (240th) anniversary of the United States will be five days later on Shabbat. Again there is no way of knowing in advance what this portends, but at least beware of the situation in Cleveland when that Convention comes to town. Another significant date before the 17th of Tamuz will be the 9th of Tamuz when the outer Wall to Yerushalayim during the first Temple was breached by Bavel. Zecharia HaNavi 8:19 refers to the Fast of the 9th of Tamuz when he speaks of the Fast of the Fourth month. That date changed slightly after the destruction of the 2nd Temple when the Romans breached the outer walls of Yerushalayim on the 17th of Tamuz, the same date as the making of the golden calf. So rather than decreeing two fast days for Tamuz, the 9th of Tamuz date from the Babylonian exile was replaced by the even more ominous 17th of Tamuz date because included in that date was the making of the golden calf along with the breach of the wall of Yerushalayim by the Romans, definitely something to fast about. Yet, later on in our history, the 9th of Tamuz again reared its head again. On Erev Parshat Chukat, King Louis IX burned 24 cartloads of Talmuds in Paris with rare Tosefot in the margins in 1242ce (5002). It was a devastating Churban for world Jewry not just for France since this was the France of Rashi and the Tosefot, the leading community of the Oral Torah in the world for 300 years, and in one devastating Friday afternoon, the Oral Torah was burnt to cinders. In years when the 17th of Tamuz falls out on Shabbat, Erev Parshat Chukat (in the Diaspora) always falls out on the 9th of Tamuz. Many have taken up the custom to fast on Erev Parshat Chukat even though the fast day is on Erev Shabbat. So by an indirect method, HaShem re-instituted the original fast day of the fourth month (the 9th of Tamuz) to be once again included in what very well could be two fast days for the fourth month (the 9th and the 17th of Tamuz).

Jesterhead: Also correct, but the English in this case will need to show respect to their Welsh brethren since unlike Scotland, the Welsh also voted to leave the EU albeit by a smaller margin than the English. So England should be exceptionally careful of not alienating the Welsh since the Scots are likely headed for the exit back into the arms of the EU. In this case there is no need to have a devolved parliament for the two nations, England and Wales united, since the Welsh have shown a desire to remain part of the United Kingdom. So the parliament of the combined Kingdom of England and Wales would likely go to Cardiff to reward the Welsh for their "lion-like" bravery for voting along with England (minus London) to leave the EU. Irregardless of what Mel Gibson might think, the Scots seem to have a Chicken-heart and not a Lion-heart, when it comes to their own independence....or maybe the Scots want more Muslim immigrants and world government to boot.

On this subject, at least London has an excuse to want to remain part of the EU. As an international banking center, they might have a deep desire for a one world currency, or at least ten world fiat currencies where one of the currencies in the Euro. They might have the mistaken idea that life in general would be better if that were somehow the case.

It is interesting that we have discussed the Gemorrah in Chullin which mentions that one of two things that fully "abrogates the Covenant between HaShem and a gentile nation" is if that gentile nation starts to write and then give Ketubot (marriage contracts) to homosexuals, thereby publicly sanctifying the abomination and foisting on the entire society, something that would normally anger HaShem when two engage in the act behind closed doors. The halakhah on the issue of "putting to death" those who engage in the act only applies to when they do it before two eye-witnesses who both warn them and then actually witness the act. So when done in private behind a closed door where only HaShem is a witness, Beit Din would normally not get involved. And of course an individual should never go off with his pistol blazing as did Sefirat HaOmar at the Pulse night Club. Yet, when the non-Jewish civilization begins to sanctify male homosexuality, the entire civilization is now "caught in the act" by G-d Himself. So the death penalty on the entire civilization that sanctions this is carried out by G-d Himself.....as we have seen. It is worth noting, and on this I might need to do some fact checking, that the actual Supreme Court decision to force all 50 states to grant ketubot to homosexuals last June was on ....drum roll....The 9th of Tamuz 5775 (26th of June, 2015, a breach of the Oral Torah for the nations of the world!

All ultimately comes into complete judgement at the End of Days.

Yes the Dow dropped precisely 777.7 points on the 29th of Elul 5768, the last day of that Shmittah year and of that 7 year cycle. That day was also 29 Sept. 2008. Add 7 solar years. That takes us to 29 Sept 2015. Add 7 Julian months where there is a 31st of October, December, and March whose meaning is nonsensical since no lunar cycle has 31 days after all. So from the 29th of April add 7 weeks + 7 days, and one gets to the day of this past Friday's Crash because of Brexit. The fact that this is the case is no more than an interesting curiosity.

The aftermath of BREXIS

How should we interpret Daniel 9:27 in this context?

6/26/2016 10:11 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

The last week, Meir out of the 70? Well Rashi says that that one Shmittah cycle was the 7 year failed Bar Kochba revolt. For three 1/2 years we were independent between 132 (3892) and 135ce (3895). The problem of course with that is that 3892 was a Shmittah year itself, and it was the year of the Revolt so that the destruction of whatever idol Hadrian set up on the Temple Mount was during the Shmittah year itself so that the 3 1/2 years of the idol preceded the Shmittah year, and our 3 1/2 years of freedom began during the Shmittah year only to be crushed in the 3rd year of the next Shmittah cycle (135ce). Now if we hold that the abomination that makes desolate is set up after crushing the Bar Kochba revolt, then it might be possible to see how the remaining 3 1/2 years takes one to the end of year 6 of the Shmittah cycle (138ce). Because the crushing of the Bar Kochba revolt is so anti-climactic for the 70th Shmittah week, it is hard to accept Rashi's contention that that was Daniel's 70th week.

6/26/2016 8:59 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Part 2 of Daniel's last week:
The best way to understand this final week of Daniel is to understand it in terms of the very end of the Sefer spanning our entire Galut from when Nebuchadnezzar stopped the tamid offering until the laying the cornerstone to the Mosque of Omar (Dome of the Rock) the real Shikutz HaShomeim (abomination that makes desolate) that could possibly exist up on the Temple Mount. For this we have to accept the dating system that Rav Shimon Schwab zt"l accepted that there are an additional 165 years in Galut Paras that are missing from the historical record of the Jewish people because Daniel shut and sealed those 165 years away. I don't want to get into a big discussion about all the other Shachs (Shahs) of the Persian Empire that are not listed in Seder Olam. I truly don't have all the answers dealing with this difficult subject of the 165 missing years. Rav Schwab zt"l mentioned that the gematriah of Sod Daniel (Secret of Daniel) happens to be 165 because it refers to the 165 shut and sealed years of the Persian Empire meaning that the 2nd Temple would have stood for an additional 165 years which for whatever reason have been stricken from the historical record by Daniel under orders from the Malach Gavriel. But if we include those 165 years and then if we go back another 18 years before the destruction of the First Temple, we go back to the point when Nebuchadnezzar first arrived in Yerushalayim after defeating the King of Mitzraim (Paro Necho) in the fourth year of the reign of Yehoiakim at the Battle of Charcemish (mentioned in Yirmiyahu 46:2). Let us assume that he stopped the tamid (daily) offering in the Temple when he arrived. Yehoiakim then ruled for another 7 years. His son Yehohoiachin then ruled for three months before being carted off to Bavel and throne in jail for 37 years.. Then Tzidkiyahu ruled until the destruction of the 1st Temple eleven years later. So adding up the years that Nebuchadnezzar ruled over the Kings of Yehudah, we have 11 + 7 years + 3 months = 18 years and 3 months. So if we add the total number of years of the 2nd Temple according to Seder Olam (420 years) + 165 years + 70years that the Temple was destroyed + 18 years of Nebuchadnezzar's reign of the Kings of Yehudah, we get 673 years from when Nebuchadnezzar arrives the first time in Yerushalayim during the fourth year of the reign of Yehoiakim until the destruction of the 2nd Temple in the year 70ce. I am using the ce dating system in order to get to the laying of the foundation to the Dome of the Rock in the year 687 ce. So from the year 70 to 687ce we have another 617 years. Now add 673 years before the destruction of the 2nd Temple from when Nebuchadnezzar may have ended the tamid offering in the First Temple to 617 years after the destruction of the 2nd Temple and we get 1290 years, the famous but mysterious number of "days" in Daniel 12:11 at which point the Abomination that makes Desolate is set up. That would be the Dome of the Rock which would be destroyed and replaced by the Third Temple 1335 years from the year 687ce, mentioned in the next verse in Daniel 12. That would be 687 + 1335 in the year 2022 ce less than 7 years from now. Even if Mashiach were to come this year, it would take him 7 years to build the Eternal Temple that will never be destroyed as it took Shlomo 7 years and 6 months to build his glorious Temple (and this would be even while assisted by top of the line construction technology available today.) Now there are many who believe that the 3rd Temple will simply come down from Shamayim complete. I am not one of those who holds like that because we spend five parshiyot in the Torah discussing the building of the Mishkan in the Desert from Terumah until Pekudei. We spend a lot of time and energy learning how to build the Mishkan. Learning about the construction of HaShem's holy abode is not for naught. We will be putting the full discussion of how to build HaShem's Holy Abode to good use.

The only piece of evidence missing from the above discussion is evidence from Chazal that the korban tamid ceased with the arrival of Nebuchadnezzar to Yerushalayim 18 years before the destruction of the Temple when he established his rule over the Kings of Yehudah as the King of kings as was the case with Nebuchadnezzar. For that I have to research something that Gedaliah wrote on his blog under the pseudonym Gilui several years ago where he quotes no less of a personage than the Vilna Gaon that Nebuchadnezzar did just that upon his arrival to Yerushalayim. But I am a bit exhausted right now. So I will have to find Gedaliah's piece on this later.

If we are talking -50 level of impurity as the "Golden level" which is -50, in this election cycle both nominees + one third of the electorate for each nominee qualifies. The one third that simply want to sit on their hands now as Republican Conservatives were Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio supporters in the Primaries who feel abandoned by the system which in this election cycle seems geared toward menuvalim of the Left (Hillary or Bernie supporters) and the Center (many Trump supporters). And most of those who are dissatisfied don't want to vote for a Libertarian either. So they are totally stuck.

in the process of losing it? I would ascertain that the events on Shavuot indicate that HaShem is NOT in the process of losing His patience. He has officially LOST His patience. The world will now pulsate from His Judgements! pulsate...as in The Pulse. never mind. In a sense though, HaShem will always exercise a measure of his long suffering patience for the penitent. So He has promised to never lose patience for those who truly repent. But for those who have no desire to repent, His patience is now officially gone.

As callous as unlimited abortion rights is to the preservation of human life, it was just one of the signposts on the way to -50. As you know, Roe vs. Wade was the landmark SCOTUS decision from 1973 which basically granted unlimited abortions to all American women on demand. One could easily argue that it was principle in bringing America down from -6 to -7 on its 49 year march to moral oblivion since the decision was from year 6 in that march toward oblivion which started in 1967. It was a huge brick in the road because it simply encouraged more people to have more unprotected relations outside of marriage. On the issue of murder, as you know, Jewish Law looks at abortion a bit differently than Xtians do. Our basis for dealing with abortion comes from Sefer Shemot 21:22 that when two men strive together (fight each other) and one of them hits a woman (negligently) while they are fighting and she miscarries as a result. The one who hit her is liable to damages paid to the husband or to the woman if the husband has passed away.

כב וְכִי-יִנָּצוּ אֲנָשִׁים, וְנָגְפוּ אִשָּׁה הָרָה וְיָצְאוּ יְלָדֶיהָ, וְלֹא יִהְיֶה, אָסוֹן--עָנוֹשׁ יֵעָנֵשׁ, כַּאֲשֶׁר יָשִׁית עָלָיו בַּעַל הָאִשָּׁה, וְנָתַן, בִּפְלִלִים. 22 And if men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart, and yet no harm follow (onto the woman), he shall be surely fined, according as the woman's husband shall lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.

If this careless act of hitting her were real manslaughter, the one who hit her would have to flee to city of refuge as anyone else who is shogeig (negligent) when killing someone else flees. But here the text of the Torah indicates that while causing miscarriage is something that must be fined, it is NOT considered negligent murder by G-d. It is wrong, but it is not severe enough to be considered manslaughter. On the other hand, Chazal based on other verses in Tanakh such as Yirmiyahu 1:5

ה בְּטֶרֶם אצורך (אֶצָּרְךָ) בַבֶּטֶן יְדַעְתִּיךָ, וּבְטֶרֶם תֵּצֵא מֵרֶחֶם הִקְדַּשְׁתִּיךָ: נָבִיא לַגּוֹיִם, נְתַתִּיךָ. 5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee; I have appointed thee a prophet unto the nations.

which most certainly points to the idea that the 271 days of pregnancy are a time when the women's body has increased holiness because the fetus is being formed within her womb. So the formation of the fetus in the womb is not yet human life, but it is most certainly not just a purposeless gathering of human cellular formation and pounds of flesh which can be removed for the purpose of the convenience of the pregnant woman. continued..

6/27/2016 8:30 PM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Because of this "in between" status of the fetus of being intrinsically holy but not yet human life, abortion law in Judaism is extremely complex. A woman cannot have an abortion because of its sheer convenience. Yet, if an abortion occurs, the one who aborts is NOT a murderer. According to halakhah though, a woman can abort to save her life, of course, but also to reduce threats to her midterm and longterm physical health and even longterm effects to her mental health (if a known mental health condition can be identified such as schizophrenia as one example where bearing a child will make the woman sicker in the long term.) Each case of abortion therefore must be checked with a halakhic authority, but most certainly, abortion for the sake of convenience is Assur (forbidden). That likely would eliminate 90% of the cases of Jewish women wanting an abortion from having one, if they actually asked a Rav.

On the issue of gentile's aborting fetuses, therefore the ones aborting are not murderers either. So the question comes down to what Noachide Law has been broken when abortion for the sake of convenience has been performed? That is a very difficult question, and perhaps it is better to err on the side of the fetus's intrinsic holiness. So as Jews we should encourage gentile societies that we live in to enforce stricter abortion laws which allow abortions under the above extenuating circumstances rather than to allow unlimited abortions on demand where the unwanted fetus is treated like a canker sore.
