The Suffering and the Redemption of Mashiach ben Ephraim

 Well, it finally happened.  Yehonatan Pollard is coming home.  His plans for Aliyah obviously include making sure that his wife Esther receives the best medical and oncological care in the world for his wife Esther's Jener Machalah= (That Horrible Disease that cannot be mentioned because it is associated with the Mazal of the Sin of the Golden Calf during the month Tamuz, the Hebrew word for Crab).  So I am sure that his and her imminent Aliyah is being scheduled around her life saving therapies.  In anticipation of his Aliyah, I have kept a lot of my deeper thoughts and musings about his role in the Redemption of Klal Yisrael to myself.  I had no desire to awaken the Satan's accusations that may have been used to extend his intolerable parole conditions for another five or ten years.  But apparently those accusations have dissolved in what MIGHT be Trump's last wonderful Presidential act on behalf of Klal Yisrael.  On that subject, I am not going to guess which outcome Trump's legal maneuvers are going to achieve.  For this last great deed of kindness, he deserves to win something, maybe the Presidency of the United RedStates of America as all the deeply blue states on both coasts secede from the United States upon his pulling off a miraculous re-election.  I am not here to guess which outcome will be achieved in the next two weeks in time for the "drop dead" date (8th December 2020) to certify the Electors to the Electoral College from the various states, especially in the six swing states where Trump and his legal team are trying to prove massive fraud.  And now I have learned, that if there is a Supreme Court ruling in Trump's favor on massive Election fraud in at least three states (including in Pennsylvania and in either Michigan or Georgia) to overthrow the election in those three or more states, then Baruch HaShem, Trump may pull off his Victory in the United RedStates of America.  The US Supreme Court will need to rule on this before the Electoral College actually gathers in the various State capitals on the 14th of December to vote for President.  Biden would then have less than 270 Electoral College votes, and the election would then be decided amongst the various state delegations of members of the US House of Representatives with each state having one vote according to the US Constitution.  Since the Republicans have a slight majority (26 out of 50) in both the incoming and the outgoing State Congressional Delegations of House members amongst the 50 State delegations, Trump would then be re-elected.  

Moving on from this contentious subject, a far greater Geulah event than whether Trump is inaugurated on January 20th, 2021 has just occurred.  The 6th and final Mashiach ben Yosef has been released from prison, the Mashiach ben Yosef who is released from decades long degradation in one of Edom's prison systems, spending years of his thirty year sentence in jail in Solitary confinement which was a major condition of his suffering predicted in the Yalkut Shimoni, Yishayahu 60, Remez 499 before his release.  I will give a full translation of the entire segment dealing with the release of Mashiach ben Ephraim in this post.  But first a little background and in my mind, 100% proof must be presented that he is the last Mashiach ben Ephraim who is apparently released in the 6th year, the Yesod year, of the Dystopian and Final Shmittah cycle before the Coming of Mashiach ben David in year 8, b'itah (earlier with HaShem's Rachamim).  I will present all the evidence that has been presented slowly on this blog over the years, but because the presentation is so voluminous, I will present it with bulletpoints and in outline form. 

First let us define the Role of Mashiach ben Yosef in the world.  He has four potential roles in the Final Redemption.  In the case of the previous five MBYs, they had the ko'ach to achieve at least one of these four roles.

1. Ingathering of the Exiles.  Whenever the Vav appears in Yaakov's name, which happens only five times in all of Tana"kh, we are being introduced to an event that takes place during the Mashiach ben Yosef period of history which lasts from the Greening of Eretz Yisrael until the Coming of Mashiach Ben David.  The Vav in Ya'akov appears once in the entire Torah in Lev. 26:42 and four times in Sefer Yirmiyahu.  The Greening of Eretz Yisrael started with the Agricultural Aliyahs of the late 19th Century which started with the the founding of Rosh Pinah and Zikhron Ya'akov in 1882.  But we were informed in Tana"kh, mamash in the Torah itself, that it would begin with the Remembrance of Ya'akov (Zikhron Yaakov).   וְזָכַרְתִּי, אֶת-בְּרִיתִי יַעֲקוֹב; וְאַף אֶת-בְּרִיתִי יִצְחָק וְאַף אֶת-בְּרִיתִי אַבְרָהָם, אֶזְכֹּר--וְהָאָרֶץ אֶזְכֹּר. 42 then will I Remember My covenant with Ya'akov, and also My covenant with Isaac, and also My covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.  

Now Yoseph became Viceroy of Mitzraim exactly 9 to 9 1/2 years before Ya'akov and his 70 children, grandchildren, and some great-grandchildren descended into Mitzraim after the 7 years of plenty and two to two 1/2 years of famine.  After they descended while Yocheved was being born, they were in Mitzraim for 130 years until she gave birth to Moshe Rabbeinu, one of the mysterious hidden miracles of the Torah.  Yes, Yocheved gave birth to Miriam when she was 123 years old, to Aharon, when she was 127 years old, and to Moshe Rabbeinu when she was 130 years old.  The Written Torah makes a huge deal that Sarah Imeinu miraculously gave birth to Yitzchak when she was 90 years old.  In order to bear one child, she needed to be rejuvenated with the return of her fertility cycle and with her ability to produce milk for her young child.  The Torah makes a point to stress this miraculous reclaiming of her youth (Gen 18:11) in order for her to bear just one child when she was not yet 90 years old.  Yet, Yocheved giving birth to three children when she was 123 years and older was not even worth one mention of the miraculous nature of her remaining forever young?  Could it be a hint for the Final Redemption, that the return of the Land of Israel to its former fertile bounty, would take place in such a natural way that even amongst our own people, the Land's return to its former fertility would not be considered miraculous??  Yes, every decade, an ancient country is redeemed from the encroaching lifeless deserts with the return of its ancient people who plant trees and crops as if their 1800 year absence for the country never happened?  It happens all the time that after that ancient people left, the Land they vacated for 1800 years does not produce crops from its soil, but suddenly when the ancient people's return, the Land prospers from its agricultural bounty..... Of course,  this likely is the only time in world history where this even has occurred, but just like Yocheved remained fertile until she was at least 130 years old, the Land of Israel produced its bounty as if Klal Yisrael never left, starting with the founding of Rosh Pinah and Zikhron Ya'akov.  And just as the forming of Israel as a nation began with Yoseph becoming Viceroy of Mitzraim at age 30, to prepare the way for Israel's 70 original descendants to sojourn in Mitzraim, the Mashiach ben Yoseph period of history began with the founding of those two Agricultural settlements in 1882.  And just as Moshe Rabbeinu was born 139 or 140 years later, after Yoseph became Viceroy, to begin the openly miraculous part of the Redemption from Mitzraim, so too would the more natural aspect of the Mashiach ben Yoseph Era of our Redemption come to an end 139 to 140 years after 1882 in 2021 or 2022, ending the natural Era of the Ingathering of the Exiles and the role of Mashiach ben Yoseph to do so.  

As I will explain later, there really have been five Mashiach ben Yosephs during this 139 year stretch of history.  The first Four have died violent deaths through assassination or War which is prophesied for the first five MBYs while the fifth MBY, Bibi Netanyahu's final fate hangs in the balance.  It hangs in the balance since the fifth MBY is the prophesied MBY from Zecharia 12, and throughout the Centuries great tzaddiqim and sages have done mystical tikkunim so that the fifth MBY need not be assassinated as is described in Zech 12:10.  And as will be discussed, Eliyahu HaNavi complained to G-d while trying to return the Torah to Heaven at Choreiv, and when he did so, he lost the privilege to herald the first five MBYs, and that in the end he would only herald Mashiach ben David so that those first five MBYs would come in a fully hidden way (just as Yocheved giving birth to three holy children when she was over 120 years old was a hidden miracle of the Torah.)  And then there is the sixth and final MBY who rotted in an American jail for 30 years and lived through oppressive parole conditions for the last five years.  There had to be six MBYs because the Malkhut of MBY emanates from the purity of Yesod, the 6th Sefirah, which is manifest by the Vav in HaShem's Holiest Name.  And Eliyahu would not herald any of them (except maybe the 6th one since the 6th one would come immediately before the advent of Mashiach ben David near the end of the 140 years spoken about above.)

2. Second major Role: To Bring Prosperity to Jews throughout our long exile, but in these last 140 years to bring prosperity to the Ingathered exiles in Eretz Yisrael.  This is the primary area in which Binyamin Netanyahu has been most successful.  Since January of 2009 when Netanyahu became PM until the Corona Crash in March of 2020, Israel's GDP had grown from 202.5 billion dollars of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) in 2008 until 387.7 billion nominal dollars for all of 2019.  I do not know the PPP equivalent of 387.7 billion nominal dollars.  PPP is the equivalent in shekels converted to dollars that can purchase the same market basket of goods and services in previous years.  However the growth from 202.5 billion dollars to 387.7 billion dollars is to be understood, that is a phenomenal level of growth in just eleven years.  If you include the time when Bibi was Treasury (Finance) Minister under Sharon between 2003 and 2005 one sees an economic growth per capita of $20,679 of PPP until he left the position in 2005 when per capita income was $23,441 of PPP,   

I am not including the growth or economic collapse in 2020 because the CoronaVirus plague was meant to destroy the world's economy in Olam HaZeh, and will only end when double blind studies are done on Hydroxychloroquine with Zinc and/or Ivermectin to prove their effectiveness in stopping the progression of the disease to the point where longterm damage is done to the body in 15% of Covid cases.  The 15% of cases where people do not seem to ever recover are called longhaulers.  But with HCQ or Ivermectin, the percentage of longhauler cases plummets to less than 1%.  With these cheap generic anti-virals, the necessity to close down Economies to stop the virus would end because very few people would suffer  from the longterm damage that takes place in 15% of all Covid cases without the cheap, generic anti-virals.  Yet, because there is no windfall profit to be made on anti-virals that cost less than $20 for a week's treatment regimen, these double blind studies have never been done!!  So the efficacy of these two cheap anti-virals mysteriously remains a Mystery!!    Well to be honest it is not such a mystery because the essence of the Western World's service to G-d is for the purpose of making money.  So as long as we are "trapped" in that worldview, the macro-economic worldview will be to disparage ideas that do not result in massive profits for those providing necessary goods and services to the point of destroying the entire General economy so that those who manufacture medicine can show a healthy bottom line to their stockholders.  In such a world, serving G-d altruistically is a laughable concept.  And as long as Edom is in control, it will be more important for Gilead to make $500 a pill profit from Remdesivir, their new designer anti-Covid drug than for people to have access to low cost and low profit generics which would allow the world Economy to open up.  Think really hard about how horribly EVIL this is!  On this note let us introduce concept number 3, that is the 3rd major role of Mashiach ben Yoseph in general and with the final and 6th Mashiach ben Ephraim in particular.  

3. Prosperity for the Final Mashiach ben Yoseph who will truly be from Shevet Ephraim on his mother's side will be completely contingent on NOT serving G-d to Make Money.  The Prosperity for the 6th Mashiach ben Yoseph will ONLY come if the mentality in Eretz Yisrael is to serve G-d lishmah (for its own sake).  That is, we will leave the level of Hod that is in Hod (Glory that is in Glory), the 33rd level of purity for the level of Yesod that is in Yesod, the 41st level of purity.  The level of Hod she beHod as pointed out multiple times on this blog is the level that Edom rises to because at that level he is doing what is right in G-d's eyes only to prosper in Olam HaZeh.  We see this for instance with the Mon which fell the first time on the 31st day of the Omer which was a Motzei Shabbat night.  As we read in Shemot 16:

א  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵאֵילִם, וַיָּבֹאוּ כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶל-מִדְבַּר-סִין, אֲשֶׁר בֵּין-אֵילִם וּבֵין סִינָי--בַּחֲמִשָּׁה עָשָׂר יוֹם לַחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי, לְצֵאתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם. 1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt. (That is the 30th day of the Omer)

ב  וילינו (וַיִּלּוֹנוּ) כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַל-מֹשֶׁה וְעַל-אַהֲרֹן--בַּמִּדְבָּר. 2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron in the wilderness;

ג  וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֲלֵהֶם בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִי-יִתֵּן מוּתֵנוּ בְיַד-יְהוָה בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, בְּשִׁבְתֵּנוּ עַל-סִיר הַבָּשָׂר, בְּאָכְלֵנוּ לֶחֶם לָשֹׂבַע:  כִּי-הוֹצֵאתֶם אֹתָנוּ אֶל-הַמִּדְבָּר הַזֶּה, לְהָמִית אֶת-כָּל-הַקָּהָל הַזֶּה בָּרָעָב.  {ס} 3 and the children of Israel said unto them: 'Would that we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh-pots, when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.' {S}

ד  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, הִנְנִי מַמְטִיר לָכֶם לֶחֶם מִן-הַשָּׁמָיִם; וְיָצָא הָעָם וְלָקְטוּ דְּבַר-יוֹם בְּיוֹמוֹ, לְמַעַן אֲנַסֶּנּוּ הֲיֵלֵךְ בְּתוֹרָתִי אִם-לֹא. 4 Then said the LORD unto Moses: 'Behold, I will cause to rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in My law, or not.

So since the 30th day of the Omer in the year of the Exodus was on Shabbat when HaShem spoke to Moshe about the Mon, the Mon first fell on the 31st day of the Omer, and Klal Yisrael had a "Chazakah" on the Mon on Lag B'Omer when it fell for the third time.  From this we see that in Esav's mind, we serve G-d until the 33rd day of the Omer and wrestle (or take away) the right to bestow Eternal prosperity from G-d to give this power to Man at this level so that G-d Himself cannot dispute Edom's right to Prosperity for the rest of time.  This happens at Hod that is in Hod.  So only the one who is pure in Yesod that is in Yesod, Mashiach ben Ephraim, can wrestle the Malkhut away from Edom and place it back in the hands of the descendants of Ya'akov, Ya'akov spelled with a Vav, which represents Mashiach ben Yoseph in Ya'akov's name.  So one of the simanim that we should see at the moment that this Mashiach ben Ephraim goes free from Esav's 35 years clutches is the Collapse of the Dollar as the World's Reserve Currency.  Lo and behold Yehonatan Pollard went free last Erev Shabbat Toldot, just over a week ago, and the Collapse of the Dollar is suddenly becoming more and more evident.  Yes, there will be up days as the Bank of Israel and other Central banks purchase billions of dollars to try to prevent its collapse, but from here on out the longterm result will be the complete deterioration of the Dollar as the world's reserve currency.  Today it fell below 3.31 shekels per dollar for the second time since the Recalibrated New Israeli Sheqel was introduced on the 13th of October 1994.   A short history:  When it was first introduced and recalibrated, the Sheqel was artificially set at the beginning to be exchanged at approximately 3.0 shekels to the dollar.  Yet, Originally back on 1st January 1986, the New Sheqel was introduced after rampant inflation of the Old Sheqel at a rate of 1000 Old Sheqels for each New Sheqel.  But the New Sheqel itself quickly and steadily inflated over the next 8 years from about 1 sheqel to the dollar to about 3 sheqels to the dollar.  Then it was recalibrated in 1994 at the 3.0 sheqels to the dollar mentioned above with the elimination of the 1, 5, and 10 sheqel banknotes.  Remember those Old 1000 Sheqel notes which were exchanged in 1986 for the NIS 1 sheqel notes with the Rambam's picture on the face of the note?  Well those notes were eliminated near the end of 1994 as the currency was once again calibrated and set at NIS 3.0 to the dollar.  It quickly rose from its initial artificially set value to over 3.30 shekels to the dollar in January of 1997, slightly more than two years later.  The dollar continued to explode upwards to 4.917 on or around 1st of May 2002.  Since then and right before that date, it has vacillated up and down depending on the various economic and global crises that took place from time to time such as 9/11/2001 and the Al Aksa Intifada.  Then came the Financial Crisis/Collapse of 2008 when at the end of that Shmittah year the Dow fell exactly 777.7  points on the 29th of Elul 5768.  Immediately before that event the exchange rate fell briefly below 3.30 to 3.2166 on 1st May 2008.  It quickly bounced back above 3.35, never showing any clue that that particular dip would be long-lasting.  This time, well this time things seem completely different.  Time will tell if this trend continues, but it does not look good for those of us whose income is in dollars.  As the Pure power of Yesod rises in this 6th year of this Sabbatical cycle, the currency of those who serve G-d primarily for the purpose of this worldly prosperity, that is "to attain the American dream" will falter.  So does Pollard come here to rule?  Or does his Aliyah simply represent a spiritual transfer of Malkhut to someone who understands the spiritual mechanics of this transfer of Malkhut.  Such a person will tell the Big Pharmaceutical companies to go to Azezel and will permit free and unfettered access to the cheap anti-virals as mentioned above.  And then there will be no longer any need for this perpetual lockdown that the Powers that be think are for our good but which are really taking place so that Big Pharma can reap windfall profits.   From now on Goodness and decency will not be rewarded based on how much money that decency helps us prosper but what is the value of that decent act in Shamayim even if it is to the detriment of temporal prosperity in this world.  This will be the key to unlocking the Prosperity of the Malkhut of the Final Mashiach ben Ephraim.

4. The Matrilineal Power to Destroy Amaleq in the World.  This power to destroy Amaleq that exists in the Torah and in Tana"kh in general comes from one of two people, Rachel Imeinu and Osnat bat Potiphara (really Osnat bat Dinah)  This koach is matrilineal because Amaleq is the foremost "masculine" force for Evil in the world.  It is why when referring to Amaleq, we are commanded to Remember him (Zakhor in Hebrew).  As it says in Shemot 17:    וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, כְּתֹב זֹאת זִכָּרוֹן בַּסֵּפֶר, וְשִׂים, בְּאָזְנֵי יְהוֹשֻׁעַ:  כִּי-מָחֹה אֶמְחֶה אֶת-זֵכֶר עֲמָלֵק, מִתַּחַת הַשָּׁמָיִם. 14 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Write this for a memorial in the book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.'

and in Devarim 25   וְהָיָה בְּהָנִיחַ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ לְךָ מִכָּל-אֹיְבֶיךָ מִסָּבִיב, בָּאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר יְהוָה-אֱלֹהֶיךָ נֹתֵן לְךָ נַחֲלָה לְרִשְׁתָּהּ--תִּמְחֶה אֶת-זֵכֶר עֲמָלֵק, מִתַּחַת הַשָּׁמָיִם; לֹא, תִּשְׁכָּח.  {פ} 19 Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget. 

We see that this is important because while Mashiach ben David is a patrilinear descendant of David who is a patrilinear descendant of Yehudah, the line for Malkhut Yosef or Binyamin is much more complex, for both Yosef and Binyamin have this ko'ach to destroy Amaleq in the World.  Also since Ephraim and Menashe are Yoseph's children, the ko'ach to destroy Amaleq in the world must come from their mother Osnat, not from Yoseph himself.  From here we can see, that the power to subdue the "feminine" side of evil in the world comes from the patrilinear line of Mashiach ben David, but the power to wipe out the masculine side of evil in the world comes from the matrilineal line of Mashiach ben Yoseph or Binyamin, but really from Rachel Imeinu.  This is why when listing the yichus of the MBY figure in Zecharia 12, we are informed that on his father's side he is from the House of Natan but is also a patrilinear Levite.  Yet, on his mother's side he is from the FAMILY of Shimi.  When patrilinear descent is being stressed, the text says that he is from the House of Natan or the House of the Levi'im.  In this case of Mishpachat Shimi the prophet is referring to matrilinear descent from a historical Shimi.  I believe here we're are referring to Shimi ben Geira from Binyamin, for in all these cases if the yichus goes through a man in the lineage, the next in line has to be through a woman.  It can be passed down from woman to woman, but if it then goes through a man in a particular generation, in the next generation it must go through a woman. 

So these things explain three anomalies in the Torah/ Tana"kh.  1.   There is a tradition that the last Mashiach ben Ephraim will be a direct descendant of Yehoshua bin Nun.  But Yehoshua was not blessed with any sons.  He only gave birth to daughters.  So the Malkhut of Yehoshua bin Nun must be through his daughters!  2. When the Torah chooses to discuss the Yerushah (passed on inheritance) of Men to Women when the men have no sons, it without coincidence chooses the Tribe of Menashe, one of the three tribes of potential matrilineal descent!  The daughters of Tzelofchad are not so coincidently from Shevet Menashe!  3.  And most famously of all, for those who hold that Achashveirosh was the father of Dariyavush who completed the 2nd Temple, the yichus to have merit to complete such a holy task could not come from his evil, drunken father who originally sided with Haman to wipe out all the Jews.  It must have come from his mother, Esther HaMalkah, from the Tribe of Binyamin!  

So in all this, one of the matrilineal Yichusim remains completely unexplained.  We can see that Rachel somehow represented feminine Malkhut.  She was the only one amongst all the Imahot, who did not have a Hey representing Binah in her name.  Here is the list: שרה רבקה לאה זלפה בלהה.  All of them have the Hey of Binah in their names, and with Sarah Imeinu, it was specifically added to her name when her name was changed from Sarai.  As a matter of fact Bilhah has two Heys to make up for the fact that she was the maidservant of Rachel who had no Heys in her name!  Poor Leah.  6 of the Shevatim came from her womb, but the Mother of Klal Yisrael is Rachel Imeinu!  Yet, how about Osnat?  Well if we trace back her yichus through her "X chromosome", we see that her mother was Dinah who was raped by Shekhem.  And Dinah's father was Ya'akov Avinu whose mother was Rivkah Imeinu whose father was the evil Bethuel whose mother was Milkah wife of Nachor who was Avraham's brother.  So a question immediately comes to mind.  We are told more than once in the Torah that Nachor's wife was Milkah, but we are NOT informed who was the wife of Avraham's other brother Haran who was the father of Lot and Yiskah (who likely may have been Sarah).  We cannot say that the importance of Milkah's children and grandchildren was greater than the children of Haran's unmentioned wife.  So pray tell.  Why do we know Milkah's name and not the name of the wife of Haran?  The answer seems to be that when it comes to the wives of gentiles and their descendants, the Torah rarely mentions the names of gentile women while the names of the Jewish women are frequently mentioned in the Torah/ Tana"kh including the names of the mothers of the Kings of Yehudah and Israel.  In Bereishit we are told that Na'amah was the sister of Tuval Ka'in (Vulcan, the Avodah Zarah of Blacksmiths in the Roman pantheon).  The Roman pantheon of Avodah Zarah was frequently named after the Anshei Shem (Men and Women of Renown) in the pre-Flood world.  But Na'amah?  Why do we need to know about his sister?  Because Na'amah was extremely important in the continuance of the human race!  Na'amah became Noach's wife.  Since she was so important in the story of Mankind, she received an honorable mention in the Torah!  And so it is with Milkah, the gentile wife of the gentile Nachor.  Milkah is Malkah since both are spelled מלכה.    In short we are told Milkah's name because it is from her that we have the feminine side of Malkhut that will ultimately destroy Amaleq in the world.    So lo and behold who is the mother of the final Mashiach ben Yoseph, who truly is Mashiach ben Ephraim released from prison,  the Ephraim who received his Malkhut from Milkah through his mother Osnat?  Her name is also Malkah.   Yehonatan Pollard is Yehonatan ben Malkah.

And there is one more point before I present the translation of the portion of the Yalkut Shimoni, Remez 499 which is apropos to the tortured life of Yehonatan Pollard.  I am copying and pasting this from a thought out email which I wrote to a few close readers to this blog.  I always had my doubts about Yehonatan Pollard even after meeting the Rishon LeTzion, Rav Mordechai Eliyahu zt"l, who often came to S. Louis on the way to Marion, Illinois's Maximum Security prison in Southern Illinois.  We knew at the time that he had added that extra Hey to Yonatan's name in order for him to have the ko'ach to destroy Amaleq in the world. (From the Yud Hey Vav in his name).  We know from Sefer Shemot that as long as Amaleq remains in the world, the Yud Hey in HaShem's Name remains disconnected from the Vav and the final Hey in HaShem's Name.  So the one who can destroy Amaleq in the world needs the Yud and the Hey in his name attached to the Vav.   So when Pollard received that Hey, he had the Yud, Hey, Vav consecutively in his first name.  

I now live here in Israel.  My house overlooks Wadi Yonatan or Yehonatan when the son of Shaul crossed over from where his father camped out in Migron when Yehonatan and his armor bearer climbed a sheer faced cliff to defeat the Philistine army at Michmash (Shmuel Aleph 14, First Samuel 14).  Before that incident he was simply known as Yonatan.  During that miraculous battle, the text of Shmuel changes his name to Yehonatan.  If he had survived, he, not his father would have destroyed Amaleq in the world.

I was finally convinced that Pollard was that man when John Kerry asked for 400 murderers from Israeli jails in 2014 at the end of 9 months of negotiations with the Invented people.  3x 26 murderers had already been released. Bibi told Kerry that he will release the last 26 if America released Pollard in 2014 just before Pesach.  Kerry immediately said that Israel had to release the 26 already promised plus exactly 400 more men.  The only one of Yaakov's sons who was keneged Esav's Ayin Ra and his 400 men was Yoseph.  I knew right then and there that Pollard was that man.  When he comes here, I am expecting miracles whose content we cannot even begin to know.

Translation of the appropriate paragraph in the Yalkut Shimoni, Remez 499, dealing with the suffering of the final Mashiach ben Ephraim in prison:  Hat Tip for the help from Rabbi Avi Grossman who helped me with difficult allegorical references, 2000 year old idioms, and translations of archaic actions that took place in everyday life millennia ago (such as the Hebrew words which describe how to sweep and smooth out a dirt floor which is referred to in the Medrash in a way that we do not sweep floors today):

Our Rabbis have stressed in the future that the Patriarchs of all the peoples of the World will "stand up" in the month of Nissan and say to him, "Ephraim, our Righteous Mashiach, although we are your Avot, you are better than we are, that you have suffered for the sins of our Children (our descendants), and these difficult and horrible retributions have come upon you, what did not come upon former and later generations (or what former and later generations did not experience).  And you were an object of laughter and derision (object of mockery and ridicule), amongst the Nations on behalf of Klal Yisrael.  And you sat in Darkness and Obscurity (Solitary confinement).  And your eyes did not see the light of day.  And your skin shriveled on your flesh.  And your body dried up like wood.  And your eyes went dark from fasting (lack of food).  And Your strength dried up like earthenware.  And all these things occurred because of the Sins of our children.  

Do you want our children to enjoy from this Good that HaQadosh Barukh Hu (HQB"Hu) will now bestow upon them?  Perhaps because of the exceptional sorrow that you have suffered on their behalf and because they imprisoned you in (Max. Security) prisons, Perhaps you are not pleased with them?  You have no thoughts of consolation for them?  He will say to them, Avot of the whole world, All that I did, I did only for your sake and the sake of your progeny that will enjoy from the Good that HQB"Hu will bestow upon Yisrael.  The Avot of the World will say to him, Ephraim our Righteous Mashiach, Rest assured that you have pleased your Maker and our opinion of you.  

Rav Shimon ben Pazi said, "The very same hour HQB"Hu will elevate Mashiach up to the highest Heavens and spread upon him from the Brilliance of His Kavod in front of the Nations of the World and in front of the evil Persians (Iranians).  They say to him, Ephraim, our righteous Mashiach, Be a Judge on these, and Do to them what your soul desires.  Were it not for My Mercy remaining exceedingly mighty upon you, you would have already been lost to the World in an instant as it says:   הֲבֵן יַקִּיר לִי אֶפְרַיִם, אִם יֶלֶד שַׁעֲשֻׁעִים--כִּי-מִדֵּי דַבְּרִי בּוֹ, זָכֹר אֶזְכְּרֶנּוּ עוֹד; עַל-כֵּן, הָמוּ מֵעַי לוֹ--רַחֵם אֲרַחֲמֶנּוּ, נְאֻם-יְהוָה  Is Ephraim My favorite son or a delightful child that whenever I speak of him, I surely still remember him.   Therefore, My inner Self yearns for him.  I will surely have Mercy on him, sayeth the L-rd  (Yirmiyahu 31:19).  Why does it say Rachem Arachamenu twice?  It says Rachem for the very hour that that (Mashiach ben Ephraim) was imprisoned, and everyday after each day, they would grind their teeth at him, show their derision by rolling their eyes, wag their heads, and open wide their lips as it says: .ח  כָּל-רֹאַי, יַלְעִגוּ לִי;    יַפְטִירוּ בְשָׂפָה, יָנִיעוּ רֹאשׁ. 8 All they that see me laugh me to scorn (mock me); they shoot out the lip, they shake the head (Psalms 22:8).  along with the entire Psalm 22.  It says the second Arachamenu because The Hour that he leaves prison, that not one Malkhut and not two Malkhuyot will come against him, BUT 140 KINGDOMS WILL SURROUND HIM.  And HQB"Hu will say to him, Ephraim My Righteous Mashiach, Do not fear them, because all of them, with the Breath of your lips, will die as it says, (Yishaiyahu 11:4) With the breath of his lips, he will slay the Wicked.  וּבְרוּחַ שְׂפָתָיו יָמִית רָשָׁע.  Immediately, HQB"Hu will make for Mashiach 7 Canopies of precious gemstones, pearls, and (emeralds or carbuncles).  Every Canopy (Chupah) on top of the preceding canopy is drawn or pulled from Four Rivers of Pure wine and milk and honey and Persimmons [sic] (Hebrew: Afarsimonim which likely is a different fruit than the modern persimmons), and HQB"Hu will embrace him in the presence of the Righteous, will bring him under the Canopies, and all of the Righteous will see him.  And HQB"Hu will say to them, Righteous of the World, Ephraim My Righteous Mashiach still did not bear half of his suffering.  I still have one measure that I am giving him that no eye has ever seen.  In that Hour HQB"Hu will call to the Northern wind and the Southern wind and sill say to them to Sweep the floor and Mat it down with water in front of Ephraim My Righteous Mashiach (and place on the floor) all kinds of spices from Gan Eden as it says in (Song of Songs 4:16)  Awake from the North and Come from the South! Like the Winds Let My Exiles Return to My Garden.  Let their fragrant Goodness flow into Yerushalayim.  Let my Beloved come to His Garden and enjoy His precious fruit.  This verse is obviously about the Ingathering of the exiles of Jews from the North (Ashkenazic Jews) and Jews from the South (Sephardic Jews), a process which is actually coming to its fulfillment 140 years after it started.  Do not think for a minute, that it was your job to wait it out in America, unless you were not given the opportunity to come here?  The winds have been blowing for 140 years.  

In reality, this post is not done.  Let us call it Part One.  The Coming of Mashiach ben Ephraim to Eretz Yisrael is not a small matter.  It is the biggest matter of this 6th year of the Dystopian Shmittah cycle in which we find ourselves, where Evil has outweighed Good in the World dramatically for the last five years already.  Believe it or not, whether Trump is re-elected or not or whether he overturns the fraudulent votes in the six contested battleground states is a smaller matter in Shamayim than the release into freedom of the 6th Mashiach ben Ephraim.  Trump's Presidency has been good for passing the scepter of rule in the world from Edom to Yisrael, but the Scepter is being passed.  So the Geulah is not contingent on Trump's re-election.

Going back to your previous post, where Anon, Vincent & Miriam seem to think that when there is a better candidate and a much worse, it doesn't matter at all. First, it does matter to the millions of Jews who live in that land and second, we know that H' controls everything and even when we cannot understand how it works out, everything H' does is for the good. But, we have an obligation also to do our hishtadlut for what is best for our people and the citizens of the land. Would you think of voting for the evil in nazi Germany and just think whatever happens is okay because H' wants it so. No, we have choices - the good over the bad. The difference in choice is one will make it easier for the Yehudim to make aliya and give time for many Yehudim to do teshuva, thus, geula coming with rachamim, rather than hardship. Don't know why that is so hard to understand! We pray that however things will work out, it will be easy for the Jews of the diaspora and for those living in EY. But to live in a bubble as Miriam thinks and not give a hoot of what is happening is not the Torah way. We are a people that dwell alone (or should) but yet if the world is burning within and without, it is our concern. In the meantime, the medina is taking away the Jewish identity and it doesn't seem to bother many observant Jews. This is a chilul H'.

I do pray that Trump pulls victory out of the jaws of defeat over the United RedStates of America. America is headed for dissolution. So the world would be a better place if he at least is victorious in 40 of the 50 states who might remain. Yes, the Geulah would come more kindly if he succeeds. But Pollard's release is actually more important.

While you have offered many hints that Pollard is MBY, somehow it seems so weird. True, he has suffered plenty, however he is not a Gordal HaDor. I also suspect he has many enemies in the Israeli government. Using him for local political gains will be like sticking a thumb into Biden-Harris eye. So I suspect he will be told to keep quiet and stay retired.

Years ago when Joe the sex pervert was V.P., he decided to curse himself. He said, "Jonathan Pollard will be released over my dead body." We can only pray that like Bilaam, Joe Biden's spoken curses come true. He told Obama this in order to dissuade him from offering clemency. He did add the proviso, "before his time is up" which in Biden's mind included another 10 years on parole. So the condition of Biden's self curse are in effect.

To answer anonymous, it doesn't matter NOW, that our voting is over, who gets to be president. It only mattered when voting if you felt you needed to be part of the hishtadlut in that area. I think it's like emunah. If you believe 100% that Hashem is taking care of it, then you don't need the same hishtadlut as someone who is worried over the matter. Most people don't have perfect emunah, including myself, so we vote for the best option in our eyes but that is where you can leave your hishtadlut. Making sure you are doing all you can to make sure a certain candidate gets in is your individual hishtadlut but it doesn't mean others don't care, c"vs. NOW, after you have done all you can, you can relax to know that Hashem will make great things happen with the geula with either one becoming president. Yes, Hashem is that great and can do anything. Even if our logic doesn't allow us that perspective just yet. Things will only become crystal clear after the geula arrives and we will understand all what's been happening up till now and that it all would have worked out to the same goal in whichever path it went.

Those who live in the USA may worry about the elections and future of the country more than those in EY but it's just exchanging one worry for another. My extended family is all there and I am sad that they did not come yet but Hashem can bring them here in the blink of an eye. No use worrying excessively about them. I believe it is all distractions from the evil side. No use listening to too much media as there are countless lies and we are not able to really decipher the truth from the falsehoods. Hashem leads you in the way you attempt to go and obviously there is a reason the attempts of mine to persuade them to come didn't achieve any result nor did their own hearts steer them to EY. Hashem will bring all Jews out B'EH and no one will be concerned anymore. If all of the Jews are leaving really soon, what is the real worry? You won't have to worry about the state of your old homeland. Your analogy of voting for Nazi Germany is not accurate because if all the Jews were leaving right then for EY, it also wouldn't have mattered. Anyway, the voting is done with. If the goal is for Jews to be able to leave and do teshuva, Hashem can enable that to happen either way and protect individuals wherever they are. No one is promising individual safety for anyone, only Hashem knows when your time is up. If it becomes that dangerous, Hashem will have to take people away by force as it is written that some Jews won't want to leave when the time comes but Hashem will take them out anyway. I believe a big chessed of corona was Hashem helping to lessen the stronghold we have on our materialistic items so it will be easier to leave when the time comes. If there's no great economy, there's less pull to remain put in our not as comfortable lifestyles anymore.

I do care an awful lot but those outside EY see a different picture than those inside. Being here does open the eyes to certain truths a lot easier because there are not as many spiritual klipot here that cloud our vision. We feel Moshiach in the air already and are just waiting for the next thing to happen. Either president winning is the next big thing and Hashem can make it work out whichever way at this point. Hashem can cause everyone to do teshuva in a second with the proper fear installed. In that case, Biden may help. I certainly prefer the other way but our nation of stubborn people may require a harsher approach. We can still daven for the best outcome. Just no worrying necessary after all hishtadlut with voting is done.

I also can't worry about the medina more than necessary. I can only daven. There is a reason EY was built up by the secular and they have wonderful merit from that as they do every day as they walk dalet amot. There is what to be jealous of the secular Israeli that lived here his entire life and accrued mitzvah after mitzvah in the Holy Land. Eating kosher food without trying to and consuming tithed fruit and veggie grown here has tremendous spiritual benefit. There is no excuse to use the state of the medina as a reason for staying away from EY purposely. Every religious person here is waiting for Moshiach to rule the country the Torah way and the Erev Rav government is concerning to us but again, Hashem is in charge and the lack of Orthodox US Jews making aliyah has contributed to the lack of Torah in the government so we are equally sad about that.

Also, why be concerned that MBY or MBD be a gadol hador? I definitely heard MBD is meant to come from questionable background. Davka we are told people will be surprised and have a hard time accepting someone not like them.

Anonymous, we all care but what can you do at this point? What is the purpose of your worrying? Like Reb Dov said, it is just as dangerous for Jews (according to our logic) and also, I know, just as safe (because if Hashem wants good for us it will be good either way.) No sense worrying so much and it actually causes much harm. What exactly is your "skin in the game?" Moshiach will have a big spiritual and physical war to fight but everyone else?? All we should focus on is improving ourselves and helping others - tangible things we can do to help things turn out easier for us. No one is saying "who cares." It is great to throw your worries to Hashem and say you trust Him. Nothing is happening that is not part of His great plan.

I remember I used to hyper focus on the political about a dozen years ago when Obummer was "campaigning."
I would listen to so many political audio /videos on that my phone would heat up.
Rabbi Winston would advise me to do mitzvos and learn Torah et al and while on one hand I knew this was the best to do, I also had a big taiva to keep listening to the news. I used to justify that since it's the better, alternative conservative news it should be listened to...
Fast forward, a dozen years later and I have not turned on the news in a long time.
I get my info from the Torah lectures I listen to and a minimal amount from alternative sources and spend my day taking care of my family and study and the like.
What I've noticed is the world is going on around me and I am focused more on the important aspects of life.
I pray that Yehonatan and his supportive wife, Esther, get to Israel very very very soon. May they each have a refuah shelaimoh. He is a special man and has literally given up the youth and health of his days to defend Israel.
I believe we are witnessing the dismantling of the ways of this world day by day. I don't know who will get in to the presidency, but one thing is for sure.....what is going on spiritually in this world is huge.

I truly believe that it DOES matter who in inaugurated this January, not so much because of the players themselves, but because of the fact that evil must not win over good. Especially with Pollard's BH release, may he and his wife be well and return home soon, it does not seem like we should be nonchalant about rooting for the "good guys" to win. Of course, they are all flawed, even the good guys, but with the obvious fraud, in addition to which the progressive agenda of the far left is so antithetical to Torah and everything is stands for (just think abortion, transgenderism, atheism and the like), it seems to me that our redemption will be miraculous in open ways, and for good to win out over evil is no small part of that. It seems that we have already reached so much of our "low point," that to sink any lower will cause irretrievable damage to the psyches of those fighting on the side of Truth. And I am not so sure as you are, Dov, that the states will split off. I think that the majority of the populations even in the very blue states, are red at heart, and the power of the people will be ignited once this fraud is beaten. Trump will send in the national guard to prevent any coup. Trump unleashed in a 2nd term will be quite a force to be reckoned with. May it be so.

What a great comment, Rachel! You hit the nail on the head. Excellently put forth. This is what I am trying to bring out to those who seem to think it's okay for evil to, c'v, win over good. There are millions of Jews in the U.S. This election is like no other ever in the history of U.S. If, c'v, the left gets in, it will be under fascism, c'v. This means pure danger and I agree with you; I also doubt that there will be any state seceding from the Union because those that maneuvered themselves to have seats in government from the left do not represent the populations of those cities and states. The fraud has been going for a long while, but this was the greatest ever, preplanned in detail - it's a coup!

Right now I see a 50/50 chance of Trump proving enough fraud to overturn the Election. This is probably going to the US Supreme Court because most State Supreme Courts in the swing states cannot be trusted to objectively analyze the preponderance of evidence of fraud. If perchance Trump gets a 5- 4 decision in the USSC, the election will then be decided by State delegations in the US House of Reps. This has happened twice in American history really early on in 1800 and 1824. It has not happened since. Since Republican state delegations outnumber Demoncrat delegations in the House of Reps by a significant margin, if it goes to the House, Trump wins. Yet, there are a number of hurdles that must be cleared to reach that point, and there is so little time left. On Dec 14th the Electoral College is supposed to vote. My sense is that the Supreme Court will need to vote to overturn the Election in at least 3 states including Pennsylvania and (Michigan or Georgia) before the Electoral College vote. Best not to place the cart before the horse. There really has never been a time in American history where the incumbant President has refused to concede and refused to leave the White House. In the 1800 election where John Adams clearly lost to either Thomas Jefferson or Aaron Burr, Adams did not refuse to leave the Presidency. And in 1824 the incumbant James Monroe was not even running. So we have an unprecedented tinder box in this election which will likely explode one way or the other. Beyond that I am not guessing on scenarios.

Dov, connecting the dots from what you're saying, it seems that Rav Mordechai Eliyahu was a manifestation of Eliyahu Hanavi proclaiming MBY.
BTW, a small correction to your translation of the Yalkut Shimoni - "Persimmon" is definitely not the correct translation of "Shemen Afarsimon". Calling the persimmon fruit Afarsimon is one of the many crooked translations that the secular Hebrew revivers are so fond of inventing. The real Afarsimon is of course a totally different ancient plant, that no one knows for sure what it is.

Dan G: I noted in the translation of the Yalkut above that mis-translation along with correcting several other minor errors in the blogpost. Who could have guessed that those orange mushy fruit that show up in the fruit aisle of Israeli grocery stores between Rosh HaShanah and Sukkot were NOT Afarsimonim! I also added some more explanation on how Trump might possibly overturn the crooked results of this "Election". His margin of victory in the various State Delegations out of 50 delegations is very narrow indeed. Republicans only control 26 out of 50 State Delegations in the House of Reps, barely enough to give Trump the Presidency IF fraud is proven, in the Supreme Court, in at least 3 large states to overturn the results in those states.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Yes, Rachel, The Republicans control the STATE LEGISLATURES in 31 states, But while the State legislatures decide the rules in each state on how their Electors to the Electoral College are chosen, the US Constitution clearly states that in the case where not one candidate can get an outright majority of the Electoral College, the Presidential Election is decided by the Majority of State Delegations in the US House of Representatives. Article II Section 1: and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority (270 in Modern America), then from the five highest on the List the said House (of Representatives) shall in like Manner chuse the President. But in chusing the President, the Votes shall be taken by States, the Representation from each State having one Vote; A quorum for this Purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two thirds of the States, and a Majority of all the (50) States shall be necessary to a Choice.

This was then amended in the 12th Amendment to the Constitution after the contested election of 1800 and after Aaron Burr murdered Alexander Hamilton in a duel because Hamilton convinced several Federalist Congressmen to switch their votes from Burr to Jefferson even though Hamilton, a Federalist, did not agree with Jefferson, (a Democratic Republican), about most things. He preferred Jefferson, with whom he disagreed about almost everything to Burr who apparently only cared about himself, not the country. But in both the Constitution and in the 12th Amendment, Contingent elections are decided by the State delegations in the US House of Reps not in the State legislatures.

To be honest, the Duel between Burr and Hamilton on July 11th, 1804 took place less then a month after the 12th Amendment was ratified, but all the events, where Hamilton convinced several Federalists to switch their votes to Jefferson in February of 1801 after the Election of 1800 by warning them about Burr's lack of moral character and principles, precipitated in the 12th Amendment. Either way, both in the original Constitution and in the 12th Amendment, a contingent election where no candidate receives a majority in the Electoral College is decided in the US House of Representatives.

I retract calling Aaron Burr a murderer. Killing someone in a Duel falls somewhere between pre-mediated murder and killing someone in self-defense. The opponent is armed and willing, supposedly, to do the same. Surely if someone has a claim, using the Courts for redress is preferable to shooting the person who has offended you. I have to think about how killing someone in a duel is classified in Noachide Law. It is obviously complicated. Hamilton believed that the Republic would not survive an Aaron Burr self-absorbed unprincipled Presidency. He was within his rights to warn the appropriate people about his lack of character in order to prevent it from occurring.

Situation Update, Dec. 3rd – Trump invokes foreign interference provision of his 2018 executive order, authorizing military response to cyber warfare, see NSPM 13:

“If you think it was all about Trump communicating to the people, think again. This speech was really about Trump communicating with Chris Miller and the DoD about foreign interference in the U.S. election while laying out the key national security justifications that are necessary to invoke what I’m calling the “national security option” for defending the United States against an attempted cyber warfare coup.

In this article, I present details from 10 USC, Section 394. Subtitle A, Part 1, Chapter 19, “Authorities concerning military cyber operations” as well as National Security Presidential Memoranda (NSPM) #13, covering “offensive cyber operations.” See below.

In today’s Situation Update (Dec. 3rd), I lay out all the details of how Trump just invoked the legal framework — and national security provisions — necessary to allow the Secretary of Defense (Chris Miller) to activate military processes that lead to a tactical takedown of domestic enemies and active traitors.

Here’s the full podcast for Dec. 3rd. Tomorrow’s podcast (Dec. 4th) will provide even more details on the NSPM and other efforts put in place by Trump’s DOD intelligence team to trap the Democrats in acts of treason and warfare against America.“

Dovid: His wife Esther has aggressive C. She certainly has a team of talented Oncologists in New York that are helping her chances of survival. And I am certain that they are trying to assemble an equally talented team in Israel to help accelerate their process of Aliyah, but they will likely come only when they are certain that they are not putting her life in jeopardy. I have heard nothing about what team of doctors they have assembled here. Since his release from parole was a huge question mark until Friday, November 20th, I am sure that they were NOT pre-occupied with assembling a team of Oncologists in Israel until after they knew that Yehonatan had been freed two weeks ago. I believe that his Rav, Pesach Lerner, who has been his go-between between himself (with Esther) and Jewish journalists who have a peaked interest in their fate, will release the date when Yehonatan and Esther know themselves. Listen to Rav Pesach Lerner speak about Yehonatan. Listen to what Rav Lerner said about Yehonatan's treatment in prison. Then reread the English translation of the Yalkut Shimoni. Think of the times that Yehonatan could make a brachah over water to properly take and absorb his medicine. Then, you tell me if Yehonatan and the Mashiach being described in the Yalkut Shimoni are the same man. You can even read the full frontal hate in the Youtube Comments to cement your opinion.

As far as Trump's overturning of the massive election fraud is concerned, it is possible that this week up to two State legislatures amongst the 6 swing states in question will vote to decertify their States' election of Biden Electors to the Electoral College. I believe that it is more certain that they will do so in Georgia than in any other state in part because Georgia has a Republican Governor who is interested in that taking place. I am not sure about Pennsylvania because its Governor is hostile to overturning the Presidential Election in his State, and he needs to call for a Special legislative session in Penn so that the legislative session to overturn the election can take place. The Supreme Court of the US will also need to rule this week on whether to delay the meeting of the Electors for the Electoral College on December 14th based on the suspicion of massive fraud. December 14th is just over one week away. To be honest, I do not even know if delaying that Electoral College vote is Constitutional. I will need to look that up. If it cannot be delayed, they will need to rule on whether this Election will need to be decided in the US House of Representatives after all. It is likely no matter what winding path this contested election takes that the final vote will be in the House of Representatives where the Republicans have a narrow majority of 26 State delegations out of 50. Even if the State legislatures in Penn and in Georgia vote to decertify the Biden slate of Electors this week, Biden would still win with a narrow majority of 270 Electoral votes (unless one elector refuses to support Biden because he/she sees massive fraud in his/her state.) Also while three or more State legislatures could potentially but unlikely vote to decertify their Electoral delegates this week, they cannot vote for Trump delegates to replace the decertified electors, potentially leaving both Trump and Biden short of the 270 Electors to be President which would send the contested Election to the US House of Representatives. I think that the odds that Trump will be successful have now grown to 55- 60% based on what was seen in the video from Fulton County (Atlanta), Georgia that was seen by the Georgia State General Assembly this past Friday. But even with his success if he succeeds, there will be large scale rioting that will make the George Floyd riots look like children playing in the sandbox. And there will be State secessions that will likely begin on the West Coast with the secession of Cascadia (Wash. St, Calif. and Oregon).

Dan G.: There is one more story that I did not include in my lengthy post about Rav Mordechai Eliyahu zt"l. Rav Eliyahu passed away on the 25th Siwan 5770. Less than one year after he passed away, a new overlook on the road between Kokhav Ya'akov and P'sagot, overlooking Wadi Yonatan (Wadi Yehonatan ben Shaul), named in Rav Eliyahu's memory, was dedicated by former Governor (of Binyamin) Avi Roeh and other officials of the Binyamin Regional Council of the Shomron. It was named Mitzpeh Eliyahu, not to be confused with another Mitzpeh of the same name in the Golan. From what I remember, Rav Shmuel Eliyahu, the Chief Rav of Tz'fat and Rav Mordechai's son, came down to the Binyamin region to help dedicate this rather unassuming Overlook named after his father. I always thought it was remarkable that the Chief Rav of a city close to the Lebanese border would take the time to come to Kokhav Ya'akov to dedicate a rather unpretentious overlook of a deep Wadi that ran from the base of Migron Hill underneath Rte. 60 (a.k.a. Derekh HaAvot) past the small Arab village of Muchmas and then past two rather towering cliffs on both sides of the Wadi. These two towering cliffs are called Botzetz and Senneh in Shmuel Aleph 14:4 with Yehonatan and his armor bearer climbing Botzetz on the north toward the Philistine garrison sitting on the plateau between Wadi Yonatan and Geva Binyamin. I promise you I can see the entire battlefield from the 2nd floor balcony of my house! But in light of what his father thought of Yehonatan Pollard and the reason why he changed his name, it now makes sense that his son Rav Shmuel would attend a rather modest dedication of an unpretentious overlook.

Here are the first 10 verses of Shmuel Aleph 14 where Yonatan's name in the text is suddenly changed to Yehonatan, without explanation in the text, when he starts to climb the craggy cliff named Botzetz. It is remarkable, BUT THE TEXT IN THE ENGLISH CONTINUES TO CALL HIM JUST YONATAN!:

א וַיְהִי הַיּוֹם, וַיֹּאמֶר יוֹנָתָן בֶּן-שָׁאוּל אֶל-הַנַּעַר נֹשֵׂא כֵלָיו, לְכָה וְנַעְבְּרָה אֶל-מַצַּב פְּלִשְׁתִּים, אֲשֶׁר מֵעֵבֶר הַלָּז; וּלְאָבִיו, לֹא הִגִּיד. 1 Now it fell upon a day, that Jonathan the son of Saul said unto the young man that bore his armour: 'Come and let us go over to the Philistines' garrison, that is on yonder side. But he told not his father.
ב וְשָׁאוּל, יוֹשֵׁב בִּקְצֵה הַגִּבְעָה, תַּחַת הָרִמּוֹן, אֲשֶׁר בְּמִגְרוֹן; וְהָעָם אֲשֶׁר עִמּוֹ, כְּשֵׁשׁ מֵאוֹת אִישׁ. 2 And Saul tarried in the uttermost part of Gibeah under the pomegranate-tree which is in Migron; and the people that were with him were about six hundred men,
ג וַאֲחִיָּה בֶן-אֲחִטוּב אֲחִי אִיכָבוֹד בֶּן-פִּינְחָס בֶּן-עֵלִי כֹּהֵן יְהוָה, בְּשִׁלוֹ--נֹשֵׂא אֵפוֹד; וְהָעָם לֹא יָדַע, כִּי הָלַךְ יוֹנָתָן. 3 and Ahijah, the son of Ahitub, Ichabod's brother, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eli, the priest of the LORD in Shiloh, wearing an ephod. And the people knew not that Jonathan was gone.
ד וּבֵין הַמַּעְבְּרוֹת, אֲשֶׁר בִּקֵּשׁ יוֹנָתָן לַעֲבֹר עַל-מַצַּב פְּלִשְׁתִּים--שֵׁן-הַסֶּלַע מֵהָעֵבֶר מִזֶּה, וְשֵׁן-הַסֶּלַע מֵהָעֵבֶר מִזֶּה; וְשֵׁם הָאֶחָד בּוֹצֵץ, וְשֵׁם הָאֶחָד סֶנֶּה. 4 And between the passes, by which Jonathan sought to go over unto the Philistines' garrison, there was a rocky crag on the one side, and a rocky crag on the other side; and the name of the one was Bozez, and the name of the other Seneh.
ה הַשֵּׁן הָאֶחָד מָצוּק מִצָּפוֹן, מוּל מִכְמָשׂ; וְהָאֶחָד מִנֶּגֶב, מוּל גָּבַע. {ס} 5 The one crag rose up on the north in front of Michmas, and the other on the south in front of Geba (Binyamin). {S}
ו וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוֹנָתָן אֶל-הַנַּעַר נֹשֵׂא כֵלָיו, לְכָה וְנַעְבְּרָה אֶל-מַצַּב הָעֲרֵלִים הָאֵלֶּה--אוּלַי יַעֲשֶׂה יְהוָה, לָנוּ: כִּי אֵין לַיהוָה מַעְצוֹר, לְהוֹשִׁיעַ בְּרַב אוֹ בִמְעָט. 6 And Jonathan (called Yehonatan here the first time in Tana"kh) said to the young man that bore his armour: 'Come and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the LORD will work for us; for there is no restraint to the LORD to save by many or by few.'
ז וַיֹּאמֶר לוֹ נֹשֵׂא כֵלָיו, עֲשֵׂה כָּל-אֲשֶׁר בִּלְבָבֶךָ; נְטֵה לָךְ, הִנְנִי עִמְּךָ כִּלְבָבֶךָ. {ס} 7 And his armour-bearer said unto him: 'Do all that is in thy heart; turn thee, behold I am with thee according to thy heart.' {S}
ח וַיֹּאמֶר, יְהוֹנָתָן, הִנֵּה אֲנַחְנוּ עֹבְרִים, אֶל-הָאֲנָשִׁים; וְנִגְלִינוּ, אֲלֵיהֶם. 8 Then said Jonathan (again Yehonatan): 'Behold, we will pass over unto the men, and we will disclose ourselves unto them.
ט אִם-כֹּה יֹאמְרוּ, אֵלֵינוּ, דֹּמּוּ, עַד-הַגִּיעֵנוּ אֲלֵיכֶם--וְעָמַדְנוּ תַחְתֵּינוּ, וְלֹא נַעֲלֶה אֲלֵיהֶם. 9 If they say thus unto us: Tarry until we come to you; then we will stand still in our place, and will not go up unto them.
י וְאִם-כֹּה יֹאמְרוּ עֲלוּ עָלֵינוּ, וְעָלִינוּ--כִּי-נְתָנָם יְהוָה, בְּיָדֵנוּ: וְזֶה-לָּנוּ, הָאוֹת. 10 But if they say thus: Come up unto us; then we will go up; for the LORD hath delivered them into our hand; and this shall be the sign unto us.'

Critically though, his name is changed while he is discussing with his armor bearer what he, Yonatan, and his armor bearer will be doing by attacking this large Philistine garrison, just the two of them against a large army of men. It is when he says to his armor bearer, "Come and let us go over unto the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the LORD will work for us; for there is no restraint to the LORD to save by many or by a few (the two of them). It is at this point that the Prophet Shmuel who wrote this Sefer adds an extra Hey to his name. Yehonatan and his armor bearer against an evil world. Such was the character of Yehonatan ben Shaul, and such is the character of Yehonatan ben Malkah.

Neshama: Yes, this is turning into the worst scandal in American History, but sadly, probably 71 million out of America's 81 million "so called" Biden voters actually voted for this corruption, for they are as corrupt and reprobate as the system that they voted for. And here I am assuming that there are 10 million fraudulent Biden voters which is likely the maximum amount of fraudulent voters in this Election! The only way that the scope of this scandal could ever succeed to this stage is if there was a threshold of utter wickedness in enough large American states that approve of it that they would willingly ignore what other villainous people were doing on their behalf to achieve their goals because of their hatred for Trump. America is not the country of our birth and our childhoods anymore. It has gone down 49 levels of tumah from 1967 until 2016 into utter spiritual desolation, for half to two thirds of its citizens are now utterly corrupt, especially in the newer generations of 20 year olds called Millennials. This is happening now because half of America is literally as morally corrupt as this election was. And if Trump somehow pulls victory from the jaws of defeat it is because of the Grace of G-d for the one third to one half of America that did not fall below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah between 1967 and 2016, with most of that one third of the decent folk in the RedStates. Yes, as I have explained in the previous post in the Comments, the 50% who voted for Biden are ALL below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah, but up to one third of those who voted for Trump are really no better people at this stage of American history in this Dystopian Shmittah cycle. It is by the Grace of G-d that this Election might be overturned for the one third to let us say 40% of Americans who are still decent.

In order to understand how America became great, one needs to study "The Great Awakening" that began in America around 1740, one generation before the Declaration of Independence. To understand how America became a Nation Under G-d, albeit serving G-d to make Money, one has to understand the Spiritual Revolution that occurred one generation before its Founding. In the same way that America became Great in the 1700s, America has devolved throughout the 20th Century starting primarily with the end of WW1 in 1918, not so coincidently, the 47th potential Yovel year since the Destruction of the 2nd Temple. Slowly for the next 49 years, the most radically Left portion of American culture deteriorated through 49 levels of impurity. Since it was the decline of the radical, "progressive" leftist 1/3rd of American Culture, America in general spiritually remained intact throughout that first 49 year decline which ended in 1967. The decline of the next 49 year period of American history from 1967 until 2016 was not so kind, for in that 49 year period, the Center or the Bulk of American Civilization went through a similar decline, leaving America a shell of her former greatness. It took decades, almost a Century, but the spiritual Awakening before America's founding has been almost erased in the souls of a Majority its inhabitants over the course of those 98 years. Those who are still spiritually what the vast majority of Americans were in 1776 are now in the Minority. This state of affairs was not created overnight. Madalyn Murray O'Hair took G-d out of the American classrooms in 1963 paving the way for the more destructive of the two 49 year collapses. Do not think for one minute that Obama and Trump Derangement Syndrome are at the beginning of America's internal destruction. Obama and TDS really are the Final Hammer Blows of that spiritual destruction, the result of a Great Civilization divorcing itself from G-d and waiting to see how many generations later the floor would give way.

Proof of all that I wrote above? How and when did it reach the point in America that in order to survive as America, it could never again elect to positions of complete control in the Presidency or in both the House of Reps and the Senate one of its two principal political parties? Never again can a Demoncrat become President, and never again can the Demoncrat Party control both Houses of Congress. This is unprecedented in American History. One of the two parties is so tamei and disgusting that the Republic cannot survive it being in power. Is such a Republic still a Republic if this is the case? It is not.

That's why they had to continue with such massive voter fraud.

I really don’t know where you get the "1/3 to 1/2 of American”? Trump voters voted in a LANDSLIDE. That is what panicked the D states into committing such enormous and blatant fraud. Because it was so enormous, it cannot be that JB got 1/2 the votes. No way. It will be proven yet. He could NOT HAVE GOTTEN MORE VOTES THAN OBAMA the snake AND HRC. Dems even voted for DT. All the facts are not out there.

Whichever way it goes, it is another American Revolution. What HASHEM has in store for us is being kept under wraps until …. maybe what YeranenYaakov postured in his latest post.

One thing is for sure, the ANTISEMITISM against Jews is ramping up quickly. And how the Jews will be able to get out of the US, in any event, is highly questionable. Especially when the “Jewish State” (hrumf!) has closed them out. The only place they can run to is TEXAS where nearly everyone wears a weeepun.

The latest scourge is the orchestrated STEALING of homes from the Yidden chv”s, by SQUATTERS. This was explained by Rabbi Mizrachi recently, and I posted on my blog the FLAG, BANNER, hung in Wmsbrg about stealing homes.

So number thing: The Supreme Court CAN delay the vote in the Electoral College because the date of the the Electoral College vote is not Constitutional. The scheduled vote is on December 14th, but it can be delayed until as late as January, it seems by the US Supreme Court. The Certification of that vote is only when the new Congress is seated in the .first week of January. I have no idea if that delay will happen though.

There are many numerous examples of America's cultural deterioration. I will mention two.
1. Most of America's cultural deterioration over the last 50 years has been in the area of Arayot (Sexual mores). What started off as Publicd heterosexual Promiscuity in Golden Gate Park in 1967 decayed to forcing all 50 states to give marriage certificates to homosexual couples, the last stop on the rails to societal moral collapse, in June of 2015, 48 years later. The full fledged collapse to -50 took place on Shavuot night 2016 when terrorist Omar Mateen (from Mem Tet to Nun) walked into a "gay" bar in Orlando, Florida and murdered exactly 49 homosexuals while he himself became the 50th dead body in that bar at Alot HaShachar. I have written about this umpteen times on this blog, and I do not want to rehash this oft repeated subject on this blog at this time. Wade through the previous articles that I have written over the last four years where I have written extensively about this subject.

2. Another example would be the attitude of Left leaning Americans and their politicians toward Israel and our right to defend ourselves without being called murderers. Back in 1968 Robert Kennedy, a staunch liberal was running for President of the United States. He had spent some time in Israel after the 6 Day War personally assessing the situation. He was known as a staunch social liberal who believed in the Great Society programs of the Lyndon Johnson Administration that replaced his brother's Presidency after his brother's assassination in 1963. Yet, when he analyzed the outright murderous intentions of the PLO and our Arab Enemies at the time, Nasser's Egypt and Syria followed by Hussein's Jordan, he understood instinctively and through careful thought about the matter that our right to self-defense was the moral opposite of the murderous behavior of our enemies. While he was running for President as the leading Democratic candidate in 1968 until the day he was murdered in the Summer of 1968 before the Democratic Convention, he was the most pro-Israel candidate in the field of candidates running for President. And for that reason he was murdered by a animal/person from the Invented people called the Squatter nation named Sirhan Sirhan who grew up in a modest house outside of Yerushalayim next to what is now the Yishuv of Geva Binyamin, spoken about above in Comments. I call them the Squatter nation because the three letter shoresh (פלש) literally means to "Squat on someone else's land" in most Semitic languages including Hebrew! It is why the Ethiopian Jews were called Falashas in Amharic, another Semitic language, by the Ethiopian Xtians who despised them. Notice: same three letter shoresh! Anyway, Bobby Kennedy, as a morally decent progressive, understood the complicated moral situation that Israel exists in and then sided with Israel. And for that reason he was assassinated! Today find me a morally decent so called "progressive" on the Left that would come to the same moral conclusion that the leading Dem candidate in the 1968 Presidential sweepstakes came to. You will struggle to find someone, but you will likely not find a SINGLE progressive on the Left that could potentially come to the same love of Israel that Bobby Kennedy had. Continued...

There were other "progressive" types in the Democratic Party in the 60s, 70s, and even 80s who were staunch lovers of Israel. Should I mention Henry "Scoop" Jackson of Washington State? We have mentioned on this blog how utterly liberal the City of Seattle is. Scoop Jackson came from that cloth, but also loved Israel for the same reasons that Bobby Kennedy loved Israel. Today, 50 years later, the entire 50% of America's Left supports forcing us once again to divide our land. They refer to Jewish settlers as Criminals against Humanity and refer to our being here and our living here as "morally" worse than the people who blow up cafes and Egged buses. Something has changed in their attitude over the last 49 years that reflects a moral collapse in their ability to even comprehend the difference between murder and self-defense and the right of nation to defend itself and live on its ancient liberated lands vs. the bloodthirsty thoughtlessness of people who blow up restaurants and then name streets in Ramallah after them in their honor. Trump is a master at having figured out the moral difference. Kudos to him, and G-d bless him for keeping the 7th Noachide Law which calls for making moral distinctions between Murderers and Self-Defense in the "Courtroom of one's own mind". But on the entire Left, including the 75% of American Jews who have also fallen below Mem Tet Shaarei tumah between 1967 and 2016, you will likely not find a SINGLE example of a Leftist who can make these distinctions anymore!

This, part and parcel, is just another reflection of the Societal Moral Collapse of half of what was the greatest gentile nation in world history. There are numerous examples that I could write about, but the two examples given here will suffice for now. That entire American Left should just disintegrate and go away. Mark my words. You try and justly force another Trump Presidency down their throats, they will riot and spill blood to separate from you. The late Rav Shalom Rivkin zt"l as the Moreh d'Atra of S. Louis told me once that Tumah simply hates Taharah. They cannot coexist together.

Just listened to a short clip by Rabbi Yaakov Mizrahi who talked about the fact that in the middle of the gemara of maseket shabbat where it talks about Chanukah, it suddenly talks about Yosef. He says an answer that explains this is that Yosef Hatzaddik tells us how to get out of galut. As someone who went from a perfect life learning Torah with his father, he is suddenly thrown into a dark pit, sold, worked as a slave until thrown in prison and after 12 years suddenly arises to the second of command for the next 80 years. He shows how we can reach a geula in the blink of an eye. We relate this directly to Chanukah as Hashem will go very low to bring each of us out of our dark pit where we feel we are as low as we can go quickly into the brightest geula. We light the chanukiah very low to show that indeed Hashem will go down to our low level to rescue us on chanukah. Forgive me, Reb Dov, if you have covered this before, but does Chanukah now have special significance this year as our Yonatan was taken out of his darkness right before Chanukah? I've always heard the geula connected to Purim and Pesach but now Chanukah seems very connected as well.

Yes, Chanukah is where the one who would have been king had Israel not sinned (Mashiach ben Yosef) inseparably unites inseparably with the one who sinned and repented (Mashiach ben Yehudah). Usually the three parshiyot of Yosef (VaYeshev, Mikeitz, and VaYigash) take place during Chanukah. There is often an overlap during the 8 days of at least one of those parshiyot, but Yosef becoming Viceroy of Mitzraim in Mikeitz is smack in the middle and IS most associated with Chanukah. So all the scheming of Yosef to get his brothers to repent by imprisoning Shimon and sending everyone back home to return with Binyamin, and Yehudah becoming Binyamin's guarantor in Mitzraim to repent for selling Yosef into slavery in the first place are the heart and soul of Chanukah. Yosef who is Hallel within the mundane, and Yehudah who is Hoda'ah within the miraculous intertwine with each other because usually Hallel is said for the miraculous and the supernatural while Hoda'ah is said for the Mundane and the Natural. Chanukah combines both so that Yehudah and Yosef never will be separated into two kingdoms again. They will be an integral part of each other in the Messianic Era.

Since Israel sinned with the Golden Calf in the Midbar when we were at the Door to enter Gan Eden and blew it, our king in the Messianic Era when we are once again at the entrance to go through that door is Mashiach from Yehudah (Mashiach ben David). Had we NOT sinned with the Golden Calf, then Mashiach ben Yosef would have been our King in a Garden of Eden existence in Eretz Yisrael where we had eternal life and where no one would have needed to die. Yosef's stone is the Shoham (Black Onyx on the breastplate of Aharon). It spiritually helps its wearer to feel the pain and ecstasy of every Jew. It is why it is not just Yosef's birthstone on the breastplate, but it is also the two stones with all 12 tribes inscribed on them worn by Aharon as part of his Ephod apron. So wherever Aharon walked in the Temple complex, he felt the pain and ecstasy of all of Israel since their weight was on his shoulders. Since FEELING pain and ecstasy is emotional and imbued with its own Yetzer HaRa in this world, feelings cannot be trusted in this world to ascertain objective Truth, but in Gan Eden with no Yetzer HaRa, feelings can and will be trusted. In such a situation Yosef can be king since he is represented by that stone on Aharon's breastplate. Of all the stones on Aharon's breastplate, the Shoham is the only one that is mentioned as being associated with the River of purity from Gan Eden, the River Pishon. So in Gan Eden mamash, Yosef is Melekh. But in our terrestrial existence where we struggle with our Yetzer HaRa and where we need to go to war against Evil, the one whose stone is the Carbuncle (the Nofech) is Melekh, for we are still struggling with our Yetzer HaRa in Olam HaZeh and even in the Messianic Era before Techiyat HaMeitim. The stone that causes the enemies of Israel to flee is the Carbuncle worn by Yehudah. In a Messianic world where we still struggle with a Yetzer HaRa before the Resurrection of the dead, Mashiach from Yehudah is our Melekh while Yosef is his top General who destroyed the Evil kingdom in the world.

Before the Sin of the Golden Calf, we did not know which historical path we would choose. Had we not sinned, Yosef would have been our king, but because we sinned, Yehudah is our king during our 3333 year detour in Olam HaZeh and in Yemot HaMashiach until we once again "re-enter" Gan Eden. I will not comment what happens when we get our garments of Light after Techiyat HaMeitim. I leave that to the Mequbalim to answer those esoteric shaylot. Interestingly, the one who most tried to prevent the Sin of the Golden Calf in the first place was Hur from the Tribe of Yehudah. He was murdered by the Erev Rav, and the rest is history.

I believe Hashem is imposing the restrictions on synagogues and gatherings for the same reason He put on our people the evil Greek decrees before Hanukkah: we don't take avodat Hashem seriously, just like the kohanim at that time, so Hashem shut down the Beit Hamikdash. We know the solution but people are lazy, so I'm in no position to judge.

Thank you Reb Dov for your great post !

One question : we know that only 1/5 went out of Egypt with Moshé rabbenou.

We also know that if the people had not sinned (actually the Erev Rav did the golden Calf since it's written "Am" and not "Am Israel", and it's a klal that in the written Torah wherever it's written "Am" and not "Am Israel" the Torah talks about the erev rav and not bnei Israel), Moshé would have been the Moshiah ben Yossef and he would have entered Israel with the people, someone Moshiah ben David would have been the King and finish the Tikkoun Olam (maybe Hur ben Calev ben Yephouné from shevet Yehouda, or maybe Yehosouha bin Noun from shevet Ephraïm ?).

So my question is : do we know what would have happened to the 4/5 of bnei Israel that remained in Egypt ?

I believe they would have been rescued too, like the good part of the 70 nations, since the world would have entered yemot hamoshiah, is that correct ?

It's a puzzling question for me since we may be at the end of the LAST exile/galout (Edom + Ishmael), just before Moshiah ben Yossef's coming, so this scheme could happen in our times that both the Jews in exile and the good part of the 70 nations would be reedemed after MBY is released

Neshama mentioned China. A few months ago, it was reported that China could be staring at a food crisis. The Wuhan virus, floods, epidemics, locusts and the trade wars triggered a food shortage in China as President Xi Jinping launched a public campaign to control wastage. https://www.wionews.com/india-news/amid-virus-trade-wars-china-forced-to-buy-rice-from-india-347026

China is not only in the middle of a war with America, it is openly trying to destroy the Australian economy because our PM blamed them for the coronavirus. They've banned our meat exports, and wine, and that's just the start. They are at war with half the world it seems. I guess Xi Jinping's character is to make everyone else suffer along with his own country. Nasty piece of work.

On the other hand, the kupot holim are worried because no one is taking responsibility for vax damages; so, they're not going to give any until that happens.

Who is responsible for vaccine damages? Not the government...

"We're not opposed to COVID vaccine in principle," says [Bnei Brak Rabbinical] Court head, "but it's premature to sanction it."

And finally, some good news that has nothing to do with corona. Nathaniel Felber (Netanel Ilan ben Shaina Tzipporah) is alive and in rehabilitation!

Blogger Neshama said...

I read that the non Hasidic faction said they would wait to see what happens to those vaccinated before asking their members to comply. I believe that is one lonely voice, but any thinking person should question any and all vaccines, considering the after-effects some are experiencing. One can find this and other comments and information at TomerDevorah’s blog. Keep in touch.

Rabbi Mizrachi did not want to authorise either way; instead he suggested to wait to see if and what might happen to those who are vaccinated. Dr Rotstein (head) of Hadassh did not take fizzier jab, he accepted the biolife, Israeli answer to the virus. Think about that.

Even if the Rabbis make statements, one is “the bottom line” responsible for his/her life. One should do research to find out if anyone had adverse effects to the “jab”. MSM is doing a concerted effort to hide such information. Even in Israel, they will be going after anyone that exposes the downsides to these V. But that should not stop one from searching online for this information. Already there is a lot of “adverse effects”. I heard that a hosp. in Chicago, IL. has suspended giving the “shots”.

Since there are safe, well tolerated, cures that have been around for many years, supported by peer review, and experience, it would be much safer to take ‘medicine’ that goes through one’s full digestive system (a normal pathway), as opposed to “a new concoction” inserted straight into the blood stream. Think about it. Whoever Saves One Life ….>

Lisa, just read that the Rabbis (who are being said to be manipulated and uninformed) are clueless and going along with what they are supposed to say and that is 'take the vaccine'. This is a gigantic mistake and will put, in particular, the youth in danger because the vaccine has ingredients which will have an effect on the DNA and damage to the reproductive process of the woman and who knows what else. Every previous vaccine has been trial tested for years before it is allowed to the public at large, except for this one. Those in power want complete power and their timeline seems to be now, r'l. Praying Moshiach is surely at the door!

It’s interesting that someone got 5-6 doses of the vaccine!
He needs to be watched seriously.
My question is how much does that plunger hold? 5 times an amount of mixture?
If it holds 5-6 doses, and they are only giving one to everyone, what else is mixed in?
Is the first “shot” the mild one setting the stage for the second one a month later?
I’m just thinking out ‘loud’.
Is the second dose double the dose of V?
Whereas the first was only one dose?

According to Rabbi Kessin, there should be a pre-messianic figure to set the stage for the entry of MBY.
So, maybe if Saar gets elected, he could be that figure helping the Israelis prepare for the 5782 shmitta year and at the end thereof we will welcome Mashiach (MBY).

Moshe, I believe it has been mentioned that Mashiach should come after “a" Shmitta cycle. So between March 5781 to the end of the Shmitta in 5782 is a long time, and Israel needs some governance. So having anyone, but B, G, N. and not any other erev rav personality. would be a bridge from now to then. And it was Rabbi Kessin’s idea that this leader would soften the people to following the Torah, "setting the stage" as it says.

I also believe that on the ShiratDevorah blog there was a clarification about that Bracha. I was unable to find it on her blog, maybe Reb Dov or YeranenYaakov might be able to tell us.

First of all, please forgive me for my silence during the last two weeks. We have had non-stop challenges in the BarLeib household. Since the flood of challenges is from HaShem, Baruch HaShem for all the opportunities to serve Him.

1. I have looked deeply into this new mRNA vaccine. As a scientist I doubt very much that this mRNA strand can break into the chemical barrier of the nucleus of cells to alter the hardcopy of the DNA. I have spoken to medical professionals about this, and they have verified this. In the words to a physician first named Daniel who responded to my question: An mRNA vaccine adds an artificial mRNA strand into the cytoplasm, which the cell then uses to construct the protein encoded in that blueprint (the spike protein of the virus, in this case) for a short time before the mRNA breaks down. As with natural mRNA, it does not enter the nucleus and therefore makes no permanent changes.

(The nucleus of a cell is extremely well-guarded and hard to break into - in fact, guarding the DNA from accidental changes is pretty much the entire reason why the nucleus exists. Only a few very specific viruses, like HIV, have the ability to crack this barrier. It's not going to happen by accident.)

It's like a fake tattoo. It LOOKS like a real one but since it doesn't get into the "deep" part of the cell, the Nucleus, it is inherently temporary. Obviously after the mRNA strand constructs a protein that the spike protein of CoV-2 constructs, one's body then responds with anti-bodies that would attack real SARS CoV-2 viruses.

Now having verified all the above, I should state the following: There really is a cost/ benefit analysis that each person has to decide with this vaccine. Approx. 1 out of 15 people may have a moderate to serious side effect or effects from the vaccine, however that is to be understood. Yet, it has been shown that between one out of six or seven people who get a moderate case of Covid 19 become what is often referred to as a long-hauler who never quite recovers from Covid (long-term months-long bout with shortness of breath or never quite recovering their sense of taste or smell, etc.). So is becoming one of those long-haulers worth it? Yes, the most common problem with this disease for those under 70 is NOT the mortality rate. It is the rate of those who become symptomatic who become long-haulers. And you know the story. Your doctor or your friends then accuse you of being a hypochondriac or a faker of symptoms to get their sympathy. You really find out who your friends are when you never quite recover from a disease for months on end. Half of your so-called friends stop believing in what you say because they themselves are not long-haulers. Is it worth taking the chance of becoming a long-hauler? Perhaps for you based on your age and co-morbidities, in consultation with your doctor of course, you should immediately consider taking the vaccine. Personally, I take care of an elderly man over Age 80 for Bituach Leumi. So I have a responsibility not just for me but for him. So I will likely take this vaccine early because of my responsibility for his welfare and because I do not want to be the reason why he might get sick from a disease where the fatality rate for those over 70 is greater than 10%. I believe this is still the case too even though the mutated strain of the virus that we have today is far less deadly than the two strains of the virus that were most prevalent when it first struck Italy and New York back between March and May. Looking at the stats, the Covid 19 strain that survived the Spring seems to be far less deadly than the strains that were most prevalent when the Wuhan virus first hit Western Europe and New York. What seems to be pretty constant, though, is the 15% serious complication rate for all ages where many with serious complications never quite recover.

As far as Gideon Saar is concerned, my assessment of his chances are that he will likely not be chosen to form a government, but if he can get 18 to 20 seats, he could become the Minister of Education once again. He could then reinstate some of his programs that he pioneered the last time he was the Minister of Education, programs that Shai Piron cancelled immediately after Yesh Atid formed a govt with Likud in 2013. During Sa'ar's last tenure as Min. of Education, he served in that position for over four years. He instituted mandatory field trips, even from Leftist strongholds, to the Cave of the Patriarchs in Chevron for all school children at certain ages. I doubt that he will be able to institute mandatory classes in Mishnayot that Rav Kessin thinks he will institute. They will riot in Tel Aviv before having that being forced upon them. But he could cleverly "enlist" Chareidi "draftees" into National Service (Sherut Leumi) to teach "Basic Judaism" in secular schools throughout the country where those schools who are potentially open to it would allow for classes in Q'riat Shema and Chumash with Rashi. Again, I do not believe that such courses will be accepted by shoving them down the throats of Leftist Ashkenazi atheists but might be acceptable to a more traditional population of students whose parents do not tend toward hatred against G-d but whose children are in secular public schools. Sadly there is a core of primarily Ashkenazi atheists who will violently resist such a coercive education environment. Sa'ar if he is clever would work this out with Naftali Bennett who would once again be the Minister of Defense in a right wing government if that is what is established. Instead of forcing Chareidim into the Army, an Army of Chareidim could be enjoined to teach Basic Judaism to students of parents who are open to such a program in secular public schools. All this would be in addition to his various programs that he, Gideon Sa'ar, first implemented when he was the Min. of Education between 2009 and 2013.

Of course, who knows what the world will look like by the time there are new Israeli elections this Spring. The Dollar will likely continue to collapse. It fell to 3.215 shekels today. Will Donald Trump declare Martial Law after January 6th, or will he give up and leave the White House by the 20th? If the latter, Will the State of Texas violently revolt against Biden BEFORE, in the first week of his Presidency, he signs an Executive Order enfranchising 10 million illegal immigrants, forever destroying the electoral demographics in Texas and in the Deep South? Will Texas simply allow itself to be destroyed by real mortal enemies in California and in New York and New England toward its own survival? So I have no real idea what the world will look like even on January 7th, much less when Israeli elections take place this Spring. Plus, there is the added wildcard of Esther Pollard's health which is a determining factor to when Yehonatan Pollard makes Aliyah with his wife.

To be honest, I am waiting on the events of January 6th in Congress when VP Pence actually counts the Electoral votes before writing extensively on America's disintegration as a formerly unified country. I have now concluded that one way or another, America is on the verge of some form of imminent disintegration. Studying the US Constitution, three or four State Legislatures amongst the 6 most contested swing states would need to decertify their so called list of electors in favor of the alternate slate of Electors that met and voted on the same day, December 14th, 2020 that the fraudulently elected electors voted. They would need to do this by January 6th when VP Michael Pence counts the Electoral votes, but unless the Governors of those contested states call for special legislative sessions in those states, those legislatures cannot meet (absent a Supreme Court decision to alternatively force special sessions)! I see no provision in the US Constitution where Pence himself can decertify the 37 electors that need to be decertified in order to make this Election a contingent election that would then be decided by the 26 majority Republican delegations in the House of Representatives. If someone in the House and in the Senate object to a certain state's electors, they can argue about it all they want, but the US Constitution does not allow them to simply choose an alternate slate of electors. To be honest, I do not believe that the Constitution allows the US House or Senate or both to decertify electors either! Someone would need to explain to me how they can do that Constitutionally. There is NOTHING explaining this in the Original Constitution or in the 12th Amendment. Plus, even if such a vote were to occur in the House, the Democrats have a Majority there, and the decision to decertify electors is by simple Majority rules. The only provision for State Delegations in the House is ONCE NEITHER CANDIDATE HAS 270 ELECTORS AFTER 37 electors have already been decertified. Only then is the Election contingent to be decided by Delegations to the House of Reps with each state having one vote. In short, January 6th is going to be chaotic, but unless Electors are decertified by State legislatures or by the US Supreme Court in advance of that date, at the end of that day Biden will still have 306 Electoral votes.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Perhaps, perhaps, VP Pence could temporarily call into question the Electoral College votes in the five states with Republican State Legislatures on January 6th, procedurally asking for a clarification from those five legislatures where the Republicans are in control (Arizona, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia) to see if the slate of electors that voted on December 14th were the same slates that were chosen by state laws in those five states. By the first week in January, all State legislatures will be in regular session where there will be no need for Governors to call special sessions. These State legislatures can at that time review whether the electors that voted on December 14th were elected fraudulently. Now, the January 6th date of counting electoral votes is NOT a Constitutionally chosen date. So a request for clarification from those five State Legislatures can be made at that time..... perhaps as long as the final count of Electoral votes is made in advance of the 20th of January Inauguration date which is Constitutionally mandated.

Thank you reb Dov, waiting for your next answer

Regarding the elections to come in Israel : we don't know who will be the next PM, we'll have to be patient.

Yet according to the polls, the major next step is that the left could simply not have its word to say in the next Israeli government, the polls giving a huge majority to the conservative camp (Netanyahu + Saar + Benett + Haredim), estimated around 76 seats !!!

So this could very well mean the beginning of the end for the Erev Rav... a true major step regarding the gueoula
Even the Labour party could not be represented at all in the Knesset !
It would be historical... and I believe this trend is not going back in the next years (as sociology studies in Eretz Israel stated that conservative ideas are gaining strength in israeli society, even amongst the young israelians).

Neshama I totally agree with you regarding long-haulers of coronavirus : here in France Professeur Raoult explicitly stated that those people suffer because they did not receive early treatments like HCL/AZT/Zinc...
So sad the Health mininsters do not focus one those early treatments instead of betting 100% on the vaccines and lockdowns...

I mentioned the sheker of discouraging the use of HCQ with Zinc in the main post. I did not believe that I needed to remention it here in Comments, but of course if taken early as an anti-viral, there would be almost no need for a vaccine. But here in Israel, it is almost impossible to get prescriptions for HCQ or for Ivermectin against Covid. So we are stuck with Big Pharma solutions along with Vitamins, Minerals, and Quercetin.

Moshe @2:30 pm - Amen!
As for the vaccines, this plandemic according to many of the scientists and doctors is in their words a 'hoax' and the rush for a vaccine is in itself a giveaway. This is all about breaking the world economy for complete control by a cabal of globalists. We all should know that by now. This is a version of a bad and very contagious flu and when it gets bad, usually to people who have compromised immune systems and are vulnerable that it turns dangerous and moreso, once they reach the hospitals where their chances for survival become very low, because they are put on ventilators which usually kills them. In the meantime they are starved and not fed. In a regular flu season, about 80,000 or more people pass away in the U.S. The rate with Covid might even be lower because the statistics are all altered, as practically everyone should know by now, anyone entering the hospital & passes on, their death certificates have to say Covid (& are handsomely paid for every death by ventilator). This is all part of the agenda and many understand and know this. Remember who the funder and pusher for the vaccine is = none other than billgates who wants to depopulate the world by 93%.
Why have they taken off the Hydroxy cocktail from being allowed to the public and that still holds true in the U.S.? Of course, the pharmaceuticals could not allow an inexpensive, safe over 70-year proven medicine to be used saving hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, because they need to make billions on a vaccine. This vaccine has not been trial tested as ALL other vaccines in the past. It should have at least a five year trial test period in order for it to be given to the public. 50% of doctors are very against it and prove why with their analyses the dangers to people. The other 50% (we are talking worldwide) are part of this scheme and are afraid of losing their jobs or licenses. How people can take a chance with such an important matter is beyond belief. Young people are at risk the most because it is being proven that this vaccine has an effect on women and now they are saying even the men and their reproductive systems. Rabbis have the obligation (we are talking about people and future) to say they cannot have the responsibility of saying 'go ahead' with this. Let's pray that people think & learn first before they go ahead with this setup for the 'reset' of the nwo, after all these warnings. We really need Moshiach asap!

From The Lone Ranger

The vaccine from both Pfizer and Moderna use a new approach to solving an ancient problem. It is well known that HaShem gave living things unique abilities to stay healthy. One of the tools is our immune system. However, the system requires activation. In some situations that requires a stimulant. In many cases that means that there is some kind of exposure. The alternative is a vaccine. There are many ways to make a vaccine. The most logical vaccine contains some element of the infectious agent without the actual infection.

mRNA has been researched as a treatment for cancer. The idea is to manufacture some stuff unique to the cancer that will wake up the immune system. Early on it became apparent that one needs to get the instructions into cells to have the stimulant produced. This meant protecting the machinery long enough to get some of it into the cell. This was sort of solved by encapsulating the mRNA in a fatty capsule. However, even after doing this only a rather small amount of the stuff is absorbed in cells. Once inside a cell the mRNA has all the same limitations as natural mRNA. It runs its program for a while and then it is broken down like all RNA. If that wasn’t the case then cells would be filled with useless protein.

That is why the science is safe. The reactions are likely do to solvents, fatty acids and over stimulation of the immune system. Maybe some cells will absorb a large quantity of the mRNA and manufacture a huge amount of protein. This may cause the cell to pop open. This is similar to what a virus does. In fact many viruses are based on RNA.

Generally, most people live through viral infections. mRNA is even less of a thing than a virus.

So in 2020 at the beginning of 5781, Asarah B'Tevet fell on Xmas and on Friday Erev Shabbat. Also this year the so called "Xmas Star" was seen on Dec 21st, the Winter Solstice. Interestingly, this "Star" is really the conjunction between two planets, Jupiter (Tzedeq) and Saturn (Shabtai), potentially giving Malkhut to nation whose Shabbat falls on Saturday! Hmm. So in 4bce when this happened, the gentiles decreed for us that their mangod was "born the King of Israel". And 2024 years later, the L-rd taketh away the crown that he gave to this mangod 2024 years ago. This is how astrology works. It cannot be used to predict the future, but it is a "Ot" or portent for events that are about to occur even though in which direction only HaShem knows for sure. As it says in Bereishit: ד וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יְהִי מְאֹרֹת בִּרְקִיעַ הַשָּׁמַיִם, לְהַבְדִּיל, בֵּין הַיּוֹם וּבֵין הַלָּיְלָה; וְהָיוּ לְאֹתֹת וּלְמוֹעֲדִים, וּלְיָמִים וְשָׁנִים. 14 And God said: 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years;

Yes, the stars and planets and their alignment are "signs" and portents, but they can potentially take the world in polar opposite directions depending on the Will of HaQadosh Baruch Hu. So Shabtai represents Klal Yisrael keeping Shabbat on Saturday (Saturn) while the planet of Malkhut is Jupiter. 2024 years ago, our Malkhut was taken away so that Esav could crown a rebellious Rabbinical student who made up a few things as he went along and whose mother had an adulterous relationship with a Roman soldier during her year of Qiddushin before the Nesuyin. And they said "born is the king of Israel" when only a handful of Jews paid attention to what he said during his lifetime, and now perhaps this year, the L-rd taketh that crown away. It surely seems things are headed in that direction.

A similar thing happened when Haman haRasha threw Dice to determine the month of our Destruction in Persia. The Dice landed on Adar. In reality he threw three dice, or he threw one dice three times. The first number to come up was an Aleph (1). The next two times the dice landed on Gimmel (3). This spells out Agag, the king of Amaleq at the time of Shaul when he killed all the Amaleqites except for the king and his wife who had shapeshifted into a bleating sheep. From then onwards all Amaleqites were known as Agagites. So Haman thought that the power of the Pur gave supremacy to Agag during the month of Adar. Unbeknownst to him, he did not spell out the polar opposite side of the dice, the side facing the table. When the Aleph is up, the Vav (6) is facing the table, and when the Gimel is facing up, the Dalet (4) is facing the table. So instead of an Aleph and two Gimels, the real siman, from G-d's polar opposite point of view was a Vav and two Dalets! So instead of giving supremacy to Agag, the roll of Haman's dice gave supremacy to King David!

The Supreme Court is completely corrupt as is Congress so I have little faith in them. I would advise no one to take these unsafe and unproven vaccines, it takes 5-10 years at least for testing of a vaccine and just a few short months is not long enough!

Addendum to previous comments about the vaccine.

Several websites claim that the vaccine is dangerous for those people who want to get pregnant or who are already pregnant.

Please understand pharmaceutical do not routinely test vaccines on pregnant women. The risk of malpractice claims, even without evidence, make it financially crazy to do such testing. However, the vaccines were tested in animal studies. The inert ingredients are common things. The fatty capsule is a fatty substance. Finally, the mRNA is a component of every human body. You can’t make cellular proteins without mRNA.

I can’t tell people to get the vaccine. However, anyone who becomes infected has a lot more to be concerned about.

Why aren't typical normal people first asking why is this being rushed and why is this the first vaccine which hasn't been put through the years of trials and testing? It's amazig how people can be manipulated into fear. We, the Yehudim, are bnai ma'aminim and put our bitachon in Hashem! The Rabbis have an OBLIGATION to not push this.

Lone Ranger, could please explain how a mfg mRNA would be compatible with a HUMAN mRNA? Plus I read that animal studies for this vaccine were not done which accounts for the short production process. There is still dispute about how and if the complete round of shots will alter the human dna. I suspect that the first shot is mild setting the stage for the more powerful second. The cumulative effect of all shots may be the correct picture. I’m not convinced that this is for our “good” when the CDC in its document for receivers of this vaccine, says there is no cure for this virus. I’ll have to send the link in another comment, it’s on my other iMac.

"There are currently no available vaccines that will prevent COVID-19.”
So what does “safe and effective” mean?

Also, from the CDC:
"COVID-19 vaccination will help keep you from getting COVID-19. All COVID-19 vaccines that are in development or being distributed are being carefully evaluated in clinical trials and will be authorized or approved only if they make it substantially less likely you'll get COVID-19.Dec 21, 2020”

Since this was engineered first in a US lab (public knowledge) then transported (by a Harvard sci.) to China to finish the concoction (adding some HIV stuff making it a bioweapon) what is the clinical scientific makeup of this virus? Why are they testing up your nose? If they cannot isolate the virus particles, how can they make a vaccine? Some questions need answers.

The reason, Navon, is very simple. In the minds of the Medical establishment and everyone else, a Vaccine allows our lives to return to pre-Corona normal, a norm that will not be achieved, as soon as possible. Testing a new tech Vaccine for several years would not allow this to happen.

The powers that be do not want us relying on anti-virals like Ivermectin or HydroxyChloroquine because the Pharma and Medical industries cannot make windfall profits off our relieving our own miserable lockdowns by substituting cheap generics for an expensive Vaccine. So our evil govts will not allow us access to the more common sense anti-virals that would even more quickly end the lockdowns!
So without the anti-virals we need fast tracked vaccines!

Yes, Lisa, as I stressed in the main post, we are stuck in the logical fallacy of the last 2000 years when Yoshke gave Mankind an excuse NOT to serve G-d lishma because he, Yoshke, provided Mankind with another path to Heaven which circumvented the need to strive for human decency. In a similar vein of Ma'aseh Avot siman laBanim, Esav first determined that he did not need to be G-d's junior partner to build the World to Come. He just "needed" G-d for his own purposes to build Olam HaZeh for his own personal prosperity. At this juncture in Tevet 5781 we are stuck in the American paradigm that the purpose for serving G-d is for those at the top of the unfinished pyramid to make tons of money. There is sadly NOTHING lishma about providing healthcare and saving lives in Esav's perverse system or in modern Israel's copycat mentality, except in Israel the non-lishma healthcare is not nearly as expensive as it is in the US. The result is the same, no access to inexpensive but effective generic anti-virals. The Sheker Civilization in the next two years or less is headed toward total internal disintegration because we are fighting to keep the old paradigm when G-d Himself is emphatically saying NO! Esav's paradigm will no longer give you the prosperity that you had before Corona!

Either Yehonatan Pollard comes here to rule, changing the paradigm to human decency lishma during this ongoing collapse in year 6, or the deterioration continues until World War 3 by the Sabbatical year with Ben David at the beginning of year 8. I much prefer the Pollard option. Interestingly for the equivalent of about $2.65 you can go to India these days and get a kit containing Chloroqine, Zinc, and Azithromycin which for some reason Modi has been able to provide absent Edom's evil paradigm. And I do not write that in praise of Hinduism, but they have rejected Edom's paradigm. And walla, they are free from the scourge.

Perhaps the Indians are descended from Shem also?
Though some see them as linked to Aryans which connects them to Japheth which hints to Edom, and some of the South Indians could be from Ham.
So perhaps they are a mix of all three?
They practise idol worship, but they do have ancient medicinal, dietary and herbal knowledge.
Perhaps this is one of the gifts given to the children of Abraham who went East, the Indians who in part descend from Shem?
There is debate about these gifts, some say they were mantras, others that they were linked in some way to pressure points and chakras and martial arts.
I think that the idea of a Mikveh was one of them, as ritual bathing forms a big part of their culture,
even though they remain Tumah because of their idol worship.

As we see the continued rise of China, I really wonder where it fits in with things. I know you have written about this before Reb Dov, but nowhere that I am aware of is there a knowledge of "Galut Sin". In our tradition the last Galuts before Mashiach arrives are Galut Edom, and then a simultaneous Galut Ishmael as Mashiach nears.

It can get a bit tedious answering various concerns. Instead I offer an example.

Diamonds are said to be a persons best friend.

For years the only way to get a diamond was to dig it up. The heat and pressure of the earth compressed carbon into diamonds. About 50 years ago, I think it was GE, people found they could manufacture diamonds in a lab. Since then people have found easier ways to grow diamonds in the lab. These manufactured diamonds appear as real to human eyes as what is dug up. I think a lab can tell some difference, however the difference is most likely to be the lack of foreign particles (dirt) or the more perfect crystalline structure.

The point is that diamonds dug up or manufactured consist of carbon. So who cares where your diamond ring comes from?

The same with manufactured mRNA. The nucleotides of both are the same. In cellular mRNA the stuff is copied from DNA. In manufactured mRNA the stuff is constructed in a lab. However, if either one is handed to a person to study that person only see the same pieces. Perhaps one would suspect something because the manufacture mRNA is probably a shorter string. However, if dissolved back to individual nucleotides they would look the same.

The above speaks only about the mRNA. Other parts of the vaccine can be evaluated by other people. What one chooses to do is your privilege. However, I suggest one shouldn't scare other people.

Rachel: That is the point. We cannot get medicines approved for a pandemic disease unless Pfizers, Moderna, and Gilead can make a substantial profit.

Lone Ranger: I am sure the vax works, even with a 5 to 10% rate of moderate to severe allergic reactions to it...., but most people would prefer the $2.65 solution with 65 year old tried and true generics. But in Western countries the $2.65 cure is illegal because no one is making money off it. It is time to call this situation what it is. It is Evil.

Dov makes a good point. Pharmaceutical companies have an incentive to do things that make big bucks. However, the reality isn’t so simple. To make a successful drug today often runs in the billions. Someone has to foot the bill. Not all discoveries come from companies. Much basic research starts in universities. Many countries regulate what the cost can be. Many pharmaceutical companies have special programs for the poor. All this means is that pricing is a tricky business to evaluate.

There are several targets when analyzing the best care. You can try to prevent the problem with a vaccine. You can prophylactically try to treat an exposure. You can tuff it out (and hope for the best outcome). Or, you can treat it with something. Each one of these steps do not undermine other possibilities.

Let us consider Dov’s treatment plan. First you must have the virus. Then you can try the $2.65 solution. If it works for you then you will do well. However, if it doesn’t work for you? You may end up being ill for many years. So a vaccine seems to be the better choice.

As far as ignoring generic drugs, many universities and medical institutions do evaluate such things. For example, the use of low-dose aspirin to prevent microscopic clots. Granted a lot more should be done. Unfortunately, the cost of research is not cheap.

Then there seems to be a political issue with this pandemic. It’s like anything that Trump says has to be ignored or proven wrong. This seems political and not a business of medicine issue.

Rachel, even if you were able I doubt it would pass “security” as they check all incoming pkgs and if its medication it won’t be allowed. A nice try but impossible. The only way would be to find a doctor in Israel that would consent to write a prescription, and if deemed allowable (because one has allergies and cannot take the v) it might go through. One would need to fight for it legally.

Do you mean, like how Edom suddenly can't come up with money like it used to because its ability to have it has been taken away since it reached the -50 level and haShem's conspiracy is to take it down? And what about those PTB ysv"z, who want to hog all the money for themselves?

I think they're going to find out how hard it will be when there aren't people to do business with, to have them build the buildings they want, and all those things. The slaves they want will not be enough for them, even with all the money in the world.

From this week's Parshah, VaYechi, corresponding to the 2nd Aliyah for Monday this week:

יד וַיִּשְׁלַח יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת-יְמִינוֹ וַיָּשֶׁת עַל-רֹאשׁ אֶפְרַיִם, וְהוּא הַצָּעִיר, וְאֶת-שְׂמֹאלוֹ, עַל-רֹאשׁ מְנַשֶּׁה: שִׂכֵּל, אֶת-יָדָיו, כִּי מְנַשֶּׁה, הַבְּכוֹר. 14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the first-born.
טו וַיְבָרֶךְ אֶת-יוֹסֵף, וַיֹּאמַר: הָאֱלֹהִים אֲשֶׁר הִתְהַלְּכוּ אֲבֹתַי לְפָנָיו, אַבְרָהָם וְיִצְחָק--הָאֱלֹהִים הָרֹעֶה אֹתִי, מֵעוֹדִי עַד-הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה. 15 And he blessed Joseph, and said: 'The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God who hath been my shepherd all my life long unto this day,
טז הַמַּלְאָךְ הַגֹּאֵל אֹתִי מִכָּל-רָע, יְבָרֵךְ אֶת-הַנְּעָרִים, וְיִקָּרֵא בָהֶם שְׁמִי, וְשֵׁם אֲבֹתַי אַבְרָהָם וְיִצְחָק; וְיִדְגּוּ לָרֹב, בְּקֶרֶב הָאָרֶץ. 16 the angel who hath redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named in them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.'

From the Parshah corresponding with yesterday, the 14th of Tevet, when Mashiach ben Ephraim left New York on Aliyah to Eretz Yisrael: יז וַיַּרְא יוֹסֵף, כִּי-יָשִׁית אָבִיו יַד-יְמִינוֹ עַל-רֹאשׁ אֶפְרַיִם--וַיֵּרַע בְּעֵינָיו; וַיִּתְמֹךְ יַד-אָבִיו, לְהָסִיר אֹתָהּ מֵעַל רֹאשׁ-אֶפְרַיִם--עַל-רֹאשׁ מְנַשֶּׁה. 17 And when Joseph saw that his father was laying his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him, and he held up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head.
יח וַיֹּאמֶר יוֹסֵף אֶל-אָבִיו, לֹא-כֵן אָבִי: כִּי-זֶה הַבְּכֹר, שִׂים יְמִינְךָ עַל-רֹאשׁוֹ. 18 And Joseph said unto his father: 'Not so, my father, for this is the first-born; put thy right hand upon his head.'
יט וַיְמָאֵן אָבִיו, וַיֹּאמֶר יָדַעְתִּי בְנִי יָדַעְתִּי--גַּם-הוּא יִהְיֶה-לְּעָם, וְגַם-הוּא יִגְדָּל; וְאוּלָם, אָחִיו הַקָּטֹן יִגְדַּל מִמֶּנּוּ, וְזַרְעוֹ, יִהְיֶה מְלֹא-הַגּוֹיִם. 19 And his father refused, and said: 'I know it, my son, I know it; he (Menashe) also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; howbeit his younger brother (EPHRAIM) shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.'
כ וַיְבָרְכֵם בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, לֵאמוֹר, בְּךָ יְבָרֵךְ יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵאמֹר, יְשִׂמְךָ אֱלֹהִים כְּאֶפְרַיִם וְכִמְנַשֶּׁה; וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת-אֶפְרַיִם, לִפְנֵי מְנַשֶּׁה. 20 And he blessed them that day, saying: 'By thee shall Israel bless, saying: God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh.' And he set Ephraim before Manasseh.

Welcome Home Yehonatan.

I should also point out that this blog has now made full circle to the point from when the Geulah was SUPPOSED to begin in Tevet of the Year 5765 before Orthodox Jews who should have known better joined Sharon's Disengagement Govt. The 14th of Tevet marks the 16th anniversary of the South Asian Tsunami. The first post ever on this blog was about the South Asian Tsunami as a Geulah event. The link to this cataclysmic Geulah event is in the sidebar of this blog. In that year 5765 the letter of intent for Gimel, aka United Torah Judaism, to join Sharon's govt was sent to Sharon on the Ninth or Tenth of Tevet 5765, an event which delayed the Final Redemption for two complete Shmittah cycles. Yet, because the letter was sent out AFTER Rosh Chodesh Tevet, the first Geulah event of 5765 proceeded as decreed in Shamayim on Rosh Chodesh Tevet for the 14th of Tevet 5765, the South Asian Tsunami. Sadly and frustratingly, All future Geulah event were delayed for a full two Shmittah cycles until the onset of Corona on Rosh Chodesh Shevat 5780. The 5761- 5769 Shmittah cycle had the advantage of taking place and ending seven years BEFORE the World fell to the 50th level of impurity. So the Geulah could potentially begin seven years in advance of the world reaching -50 to fulfill the pasuk in the Torah in Shlach Lecha that Chevron was built seven years before Tzo'an was built in Mitzraim. But because of the sin lacking human decenty to join Sharon's govt for 290 million shekels, we are on the back end now of when the world fell below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah on Shavuot night 5776. Mashiach is coming the hard way b'itah within seven years of the year between June of 2015 and June of 2016. No one can stop it this time by ghastly human behavior. Ghastly human behavior is very common in this Dystopian Shmittah cycle anyway as it is. Those who try to resist the relentless process are being run over by a steam-roller. The only tests of human decency to see whether we deserve it or not this time 14 years later are being passed and failed as individuals to see if we will merit the Messianic Era which seems to be coming the hard way, whether we resist it or not, at the end of this Dystopian Shmittah cycle.

Notice that he told Bibi to hold off before he and Esther kissed the ground. Only then did Bibi pronounce the Brakhah Matir Assurim (to Free the Captives).

There is another thought for this wonderful special day that may require a new post. Bibi and Pollard represented the Binyamin and Yosef face of meeting together on the tarmac. In TaYigash they burst into tears on each other's shoulders. Yosef cried for the Mishkan that was lost in Shilo while Binyamin mourned the destruction of the Holy of Holies in his portion in both Temples. Today, the two represent Shilo, the Shilo that needed to come before Mashiach ben David could come. Believe it or not that pasuk about Shilo coming is in the very next Aliyah of Parshat VaYechi, the fourth Aliyah for what was today, Wednesday, the 15th of Tevet. As it says, Continued...

Baruch Hashem! I have tears of both happiness and relief for the fulfillment of his pure and holy longing to be in Israel.
I am happy and relieved that he and his holy selfless wife can get the treatment she needs.
I pray for her full recovery!!!!
There is no way that any one person on this earth can possibly understand his suffering.
What amazes me is the name of the rabbi who visited him and told him of his holiness was named Rabbi ELIYAHU, zt"zl. Dov, any hints on this to Eliyahu HaNavi? What do you think?
Talks of earthquake coming to Israel in the near future. It makes me wonder: Why in the same news reel with Yehonatan ben Malka and his wife arriving in Israel is a news story about potential earthquake coming to Israel?
Things that make go hmmmmmm...
Either way, a major milestone has come and we are accelerating in leaps and bounds toward the Geulah.

י לֹא-יָסוּר שֵׁבֶט מִיהוּדָה, וּמְחֹקֵק מִבֵּין רַגְלָיו, עַד כִּי-יָבֹא שִׁילֹה, וְלוֹ יִקְּהַת עַמִּים. 10 The scepter shall not depart from Yehudah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes, and for him (Yehudah) will be the obedience of peoples/nations.

This will require another post, but it explains why the meeting between Bibi and Yehonatan was today, the fourth Aliyah of Parshat vaYechi, on the Tarmac at Ben Gurion Airport. Thank you to Sheldon Adelson who left his private jet at the disposal of Yehonatan and Esther on their Aliyah flight.

Ah, one correction: Binyamin cried on Yosef's shoulder for the Mishkan that would be destroyed at Shiloh (in Yosef's territory) while Yosef cried on Binyamin's shoulder for the two Holy of Holies in Binyamin's territory that would be destroyed. So each was mourning for the destructions in the other's territory. But today early in the morning before dawn, they met on the tarmac in joy, not with tears.

A kind on link between this great event and the vision/count of Daniel (time, times and half a time)
If Yosef and Yehonatan Pollard shares aspects of the same soul:
Yosef hatsadik stayed 12 years in prison -> times
Yehonatan stayed 30 years -> time, times and half a time = 12 + 12 + 6

I don't know if there is something here, what do you think?

Beni: Time, Times and half a time would indicate that the Times part is at least double the first number. Devorah from Tomer Devorah blog hypothesized that in reality Yoseph was decreed to be in prison for only 10 years. Because he depended on the Butler to get him out of jail when the Butler was reinstated to his post after correctly interpreting his dream, two years were tacked on to Yoseph's decreed sentence. So while Yoseph was originally supposed to serve a ten year sentence, so it was with Pollard and the original plea bargain sentence that he was going to serve until Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger saw to it that the sentencing judge tore up the plea bargain. So the Time of Pollard's sentence was supposed to be 10 years. The times that was added on was 20 more years, and the half of time on parole was an additional 5 years for a total exaggerated sentence of 35 years.

Now that he is in Israel, the boomerang judgement against America for torturing him is on the verge of happening. If 140 nations are to be instantly judged according to the Yalkut Shimoni, surely the nation who tortured him is in the crosshairs.

However Pence and Congressional Republicans try to overturn the fraudulant Election when Electoral College votes are counted and challenged next week on January 6th, half the country will violently rebel against the challenge no matter what the outcome of the challenge will be. Either Texas will attempt secession if the Republican challenge fails, or rioting in Blue cities in the Northeast and on the West Coast will be so intense that Trump will need to restore order with Martial Law, causing NE and West Coast states to secede. By 20th of January there will likely be unbridled chaos, either way. The biggest foreboding sign of all is that smooth transition discussions between Trump's team and Biden's team have completely disintegrated less than one month prior to the Inauguration.

What happens on the 6th is of no consequence. Only if the states decertify will there be any change. Both chambers can object, and then debate, and the subsequent vote will change nothing. Trump was conned by his advisers into thinking it "was in the bag" with statements "we will win on Friday". Democrats signaled their intention with Thousands of lawyers at the ready, and Trump was fooled into thinking he also had thousands in waiting. They didn't materialize until weeks later. By the time they were in position and working the end was essentially sealed. It has been thee most inept blunder ever seen. What's even worse is all the false sense of hope, generated by constant assurances, of the different avenues in obtaining that win. The outcome was obvious from the beginning when there wasn't a single legal expert in elections on any team. The final result will be such a demoralization that allows the new administration to put policies in place that will seal the country's fate. In the end I'm not at all confident the Senate will remain in Republican control.

Dov. You have got to stop being such a downer. I am realistic. I know the situation is not good. But I also know that Hashem is in charge, and there are a lot of good people, good Jews, who are stuck in these states, myself included. I daven all the time to be able to gather up my family from all over the place and make aliya, but stuck is stuck. And your negative interpretations of everything do not help those of us who are stuck. I daven that Pence will do the right thing and the fraud will not be successful. I also daven that there will be a peaceful aftermath, or, if, more likely, BLM and Antifa start throwing violent hissy-fits, the military will step in at President Trump's command and maintain control and punish the criminals once and for all. Why not let's go with that? Especially since there is nothing else I can do, and I can ill afford to try to live under massive anxiety attacks, even worse than what I have already been experiencing the past 9 or so years.

Sharbano and Rachel: Actually, since The Constitution requires that only State Legislatures can decertify and certify Electors for the Presidency in the various states, Pence has one Constitutional power which can overturn the Election in enough states to flip which candidate is above 270. At least one House member and one Senator can raise a motion when the 6 contested states have their Electors counted by Pence that those Electors were chosen fraudulantly and that the various State Legislatures should review their lists of Electors to decide if they were fraudulantly elected. If they, the State Legislatures, agree, those Legislatures can vote to decertify those Electors and replace them with an equal number of Republican Electors who voted in their state capitals also on the 14th of December. Since 5 of the 6 contested states where fraud was rampant are controlled by Republican legislatures, those legislatures would likely decertify the Biden slate. Since next week those legislatures are all in regular session, the request by VP Pence to review the electors cannot be blocked by the Governors in those states that have until now refused to call for special legislative sessions. 2 weeks before the Inauguration is plenty of time for the legislatures in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Arizona to flip their Electors from the Biden slate to the Trump slate and therefore flip the Election. So there you go Rachel. There is hope after all..... not that Cuomo or Newsom or any state with Democratic control of their state legislature will take this lying down. But Constitutionally, Pence along with a few Congressmen can send the choice of electors back for review in those 5 states above.

Khomeini and the Rabbi: The Amazing True Story

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Maurice: Reviewing your question, I do not believe that the 80% of Klal Yisrael that wanted to be Egyptians, would have ever been allowed to rejoin Klal Yisrael. They chose their path. They neither spoke Hebrew, nor did they give their children Hebrew names. They did not look at themselves as a separate nation, praying for the day that they would no longer be in exile.

What fascinates me is that the Bnai Yisrael that left Mitzraim never mourned the deaths of the 80% who died in the Plague of Darkness. The Written Torah does not specifically mention this event. It only hints that 80% died! How is it that 80% could die and no Jews would mourn such a Holocaust? Sadly we see the same situation developing in the United States today. There is a situation where not only do 75% want to remain, but the bulk of them have sided with our enemies in order to be loved and fawned over by their non-Jewish friends. They vote for Hillary and Biden who have shown nothing but contempt for Jews who live in Eretz Yisrael. When Biden condemned, as VP in 2010, the building of thousands of homes in Ramat Shlomo in Yerushalayim, 75% pf American Jews AGREED with his contempt. It made them popular and beloved amongst their non-Jewish liberal neighbors, and that was all that mattered to them. So I ask myself, would I mourn the disappearance of the 75% who hate me because of where I live because they want to be popular amongst their neighbors if a tragedy were to befall American Jewry in general? Likely, I might be sad that such a large percentage chose to melt into the American Reprobate society, but except for my close relatives, I would not shed waterfalls of tears for them. It is already a tragedy that they have abandoned their own people in order to be loved by the world. The mourning for their loss has already taken place. By their actions, they have separated themselves from Klal Yisrael by proving how much they can condemn the same Jews that their Leftist leaders condemn. In this way, they are no different than the 80% who died in the Plague of Darkness with nary a mention from the text of Sefer Shemot, and no mourning by those Jews who left Mitzraim.

My far greater concern is for the 25% of American Jews who have NOT abandoned their people in Eretz Yisrael but who are now "trapped" behind enemy lines in Brooklyn, Boston, Chicago, and Los Angeles. I worry about them every day as we approach the time when America splits into its various parts. (Illinois likely will not secede because it is "landlocked and not on the Coasts" except for access to the Ste Lawrence Seaway.) Sorry Rachel, but I worry about you. I am not being negative to prove that "you should have made Aliyah". I am simply taking a realistic look at the dangerous situation that is developing even if the election flips into Trump's favor in those five swing states. And it is for those Jews that I worry for their safety.

Ron Copeland: The Ark of the Covenant is not what will stop the Corona Plague or any plague. What might stave off the Plague is for the Kohen HaGadol to offer up incense on the Golden Altar in a rebuilt Temple with the Ark of the Covenant residing in the Holy of Holies and the Divine Presence dwelling between the Cheruvim on the lid of the Ark. After the sin of Korach, many rebellious types started to murmur against Moshe and Aharon. Those who were Chayav Mitah for planning another rebellion against Moshe obviously were supposed to die in this plague, but like all plagues once it gets started the beinoni Jews who are NOT chayav mitah also were dying with the Reshayim. It is for THOSE Beinoni Jews that offering up incense on the altar in front of the Holy of Holies and the Aron HaBrit saved their lives and ended that specific Plague. This is a good reason to study the Incense passages in the Talmud every day to stave off the present plague, but this will only work if one is not Chayav Mitah for outright rebellion against G-d. Most G-d fearing Jews today are Beinonim who have more merits than sins but who might suffer for the sins of more rebellious Jews in order to be cleansed of their fewer sins. Suffering by the Righteous and the Beinonim is a complicated matter.

R.Dov & Ron Copeland:
As far as bringing ketoret to end a magafa it was Dovid(at the end of the Batsheva story) who ran to what then became the makom hamizbaych(or perhaps the kodesh hakodeshim). All we need is the makomot of the avodatot, the binyan is secondary to the devine permission to use the final place designated for the beit hamikdosh.
It is like schuta chutz for the korbanot we just need the makom especially the korban Pesach which we please Hashem should all finally bring in fullness this year!
All a kohen needs to become kohen hagadol is to wear the garments(and kelim) already available meters from the kotel, perhaps also doing the avoda even in shirt and trousers will also do the upgrade to the kohan gadol.
Since we(am yisrael) are all/majority tumei meit a regular mikveh in the absence of the para aduma will do until we can do our avoda in full tahara.
The only thing truly stopping us since 1967 is the Waqf and our own national armed & police forces under orders from a civilian memshala we have elected as a nation afraid to allow freedom of religion to Jews.

In addition to the weight of all the economic suffering going on in Israel, it seems that we have run into a mini-drought. According to Sefer Kol HaTor, now that the last Mashiach ben Ephraim is in Israel, we have an obligation to "start" a Civil War against the Erev Rav. Suddenly we have an urgent obligation for which we can no longer kick the can down the road. The protests against Police brutality and the negligent homicide of Ahuvya Sandak are growing, and instead of fizzling out these protests are taking on an entire life of their own. The Chareidim who stood on the sidelines during the evacuation of Gaza can no longer stand on the sidelines. The Police cruelty of half of the police force that they could not perceive 15 years ago, they now perceive. In a good way, Secular Civilization and control here in Israel is on the wane. Upholding and Enforcing Righteousness is not part of the Israeli Police's mission statement. Even though more Jews than ever here prefer the implementation of a G-dly legal system, the secular system that has existed here since the founding of the Medinah abhors G-d. This growing rebellion is a necessary part of the process to reshape life here in Israel in preparation for Mashiach.

The fact that so many Israelis (erevravniks) are starting new parties is a good sign. All their evil will be out in the open. It means IY”H they all will be so divided, a real circus, a real chaos, that HaShem will slip into the midst of confusion maybe, maybe our MBY.

I think there has to be leniency for some of the Jews who voted Democrat.
They are asleep, or sleepwalking.
They always voted Democrat because their great-grandparents and grandparents arrived in poverty in the Lower East Side.
What they perceive as the humanistic social justice values of the Democrats is what they have been told Judaism is, by non Orthodox leaders and communities.
They think that the Palestinians "deserve" a country inIsrael because in their version of Judaism, sharing is considered a merit.
They perceive Torah observant Jews as "Orthodox Jews" who take things too far, rather than the normal.
In many cases they simply have not been exposed to Torah Judaism, or if they have, then it is so far removed from their upbringing that they cannot grasp it.

London: When our disputes with such Jews involve their "misunderstandings" of Torah Law which is exclusive to Jews (kashrut, Tzedakah, Shabbat, and YomTov), they have a heter called Tinok sheNishba (being captured by idolators when they were children). But when our disputes cause them to erase the limitations that make us all decent human beings, there is no such heter! For instance, Any thought or action on their part which allows them to sanction murder of Jews in Ramat Shlomo just because the Left defines that as a Crime Against Humanity for Jews to live there, obliterates their connection to Klal Yisrael and demolishes any right to ask G-d for their Redemption based on the heter of Tinok sheNishba. Categorically, I do not know of a single Demoncrat in 2020 who would on principle refuse money from J Street who has defined settlers as criminals deserving of death or deserving having their property stolen from them. If someone would mention one Demoncrat that does refuse money from J Street, I will happily draw up an Exceptions list.

There was a time when one could vote for a Democrat and simply be voting for a more compassionate way to serve HaShem compared to the more Law and Order approach of Conservative Republicans. But in the 49 year slide from 1967, drip by drip those Democrats have slowly disappeared. Gone are the Bobby Kennedys and Henry Scoop Jacksons. Gone are the Tip O'Neills. Around 2008 or 2012, the Democrats that represented Noachide Law with a more Compassionate face disappeared to Zero and during America's Obamafication into an ObamaNation, these Dems have become a demonic Caricature of whatever G-dliness they posessed 50 years prior. Sorry, the excuse that the previous generation had to vote for them has disappeared into 50 levels of smut and Tumah.

And if you are a Jew sleepwalking during the last 53 years since 1967 without morally questioning the 49 year march into Tumah as it was happening in real time (1967-2016) and happily without swimming against the Current of sewage in a valient struggle for moral sanity, you have already become part of that sewage. As a matter of fact, you have become indistinguishable from the sewage in which you happily waded for the last 53 years. It will take a 1 in 1000 miracle of indomitable repentence to escape what you happily accepted over the last 53 years, and those of you who were born into the slide in the 1980s and 1990s, your chances are 1 in 10,000 because you grew up in a markedly more morally corrupt world than those born before 1960. It is possible, but HaShem has made the attempt to leave a world below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah a Herculean effort. (Please excuse the reference to Greek Mythology.) We could call it an Avrahamic effort which he also passed with ten trials... like Hercules.

I always wondered what it would look like when 80% of World Jewry or at least Jewry in Chutz LaAretz would be so lowly that because of their corruption, they could not be redeemed, and the only reason why that number is more like 30% in Eretz Yisrael is because we are the gilgulim of those who died in the Shoah, an event which cleansed most of the smut of previous gilgulim from our souls. The difference this time according to the mysticism behind the Hoshanot on Hoshana Rabbah will be the "cleansing fire" of the 7th year of this Final Shmittah cycle in which every Hosha Na ends with Eish (fire). Those Jews in Chu"l below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah that survive the "fire" of the 7th year will be redeemed. Surviving that 7th year outside of Eretz Yisrael is Surviving GoguMagog and will be the merit to enter Yemot HaMashiach whole.

I do think that prior to 2016, the odds of becoming a Baal Teshuvah were greater, more like 2 or 3% doing teshuvah. But falling below Mem Tet Shaarei Tumah since the Summer of 2015 is like jumping off a moral cliff with millions of lemmings. Not only do you need to swim against the tide of millions of lemmings, but you also need to rock climb the Rock of Gibraltar, just to be barely morally sane. It is much harder now.

One World Government: A necessary Evil for Messiah to Prevail

“You can clearly see that the force of evil and darkness is trying to annihilate the force of good,” R' Alon Anava stated. “The reality is that we are facing annihilation any way you look at it.”

Anava advised his listeners not to be stressed, depressed or lose hope because, “at the end of the day, it’s all the orchestra of the Kadosh Baruch Hu (the Holy One, Blessed is He). The Master of the Universe is preparing it all.” He emphasized that worry is a waste of time, since this is all part of God’s final battle against evil.

Much like a seed disintegrates in the ground or an old building must be demolished before a new building can be constructed, Anava reminded his listeners that, “In order to move into a new beginning, the old reality has to be destroyed. [There] has to be a destruction. We’re just asking that the destruction not be so big.”

אמרו לו: אין אנו מבקשין ממך אות. אמר להם: לכשיפול השער הזה ויבנה, ויפול, ויבנה, ויפול, ואין מספיקין לבנותו עד שבן דוד בא

The disciples of Rabbi Yossi the son of Kisma questioned him, asking when the son of David (the Messiah) will appear. And he answered: I am afraid you will request from me a sign as well. And they assured him that they would not. He then said to them: When this gate will fall, be rebuilt and fall again, be rebuilt again and fall again. And before it will be rebuilt Messiah will appear. Tractate Sanhedrin (78a).

Rabbi Yekutiel Fish explained that the term שער (gate) refers to government or leadership, as seen in a verse in Deuteronomy. You shall appoint magistrates and officials for your tribes (gates), in all the settlements that Hashem your God is giving you, and they shall govern the people with due justice. (Deuteronomy 16:1)

In a recent blog, Rabbi Fish cited a commentary that explains the words שער (gate) as an acronym for שִׁלְטוֹן עֵרֶב רב (rule by the mixed multitude). Rabbi Fish explained the ‘gate’ referred to the government of Israel.

When this gate will fall - second elections
Be rebuilt and fall again - third elections
Be rebuilt and fall again - 4th elections

And before it is rebuilt Messiah will appear - next elections 3/25/21 + 3 weeks to form govt
Pesach 3/27-4/4/21




(Note: Sanhedrin does not specify “before it is rebuilt a third time”. Actually a 4th time is just as likely semantically)

I posted this also on Tomer Devorah. I want as many people as possible to see it and figure it out for themselves.
This morning the most incredible video was on Facebook and it is already removed but I looked up the source right away so I'm writing where it is but unfortunately I don't know who made that video to credit them.
In Yechezkel 39:9 (where it talks about the upcoming war of Gog coming to Israel) it says in the passuk:
וְֽיָצְא֞וּ יֹֽשְׁבֵ֣י׀ עָרֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל וּבִעֲר֡וּ וְ֠הִשִּׂ֠יקוּ בְּנֶ֨שֶׁק וּמָגֵ֤ן וְצִנָּה֙ בְּקֶ֣שֶׁת וּבְחִצִּ֔ים וּבְמַקֵּ֥ל יָ֖ד וּבְרֹ֑מַח וּבִעֲר֥וּ בָהֶ֛ם אֵ֖שׁ שֶׁ֥בַע שָׁנִֽים׃

Then the inhabitants of the cities of Israel will go forth and make fires and heat up with the weapons, the bucklers, and the encompassing shields, the bows and the arrows and the handstaves and the spears, and burn them as fires for seven years.

The Metzudat David commentary (published in the 1700s!!) describes what the "Makel Yad/spears" really is: ובמקל יד – הוא כלונס ארוך ובראשו כעין מחט ברזל ובו הורגים אנשים בזריקה. . It is a long pole with a kind of iron needle in its head, in which people are killed by injection.

Can you believe it? The author of the video said "We are in the End of Days."
How was this just discovered now?? After many have taken the vaccination? At this stage of the end of days can it really refer to anything else other than this?

Perhaps these weapons might also be in parts of Lebanon and Western Syria that are part of Eretz Yisrael from Sefer HaMidbar that Yehoshua bin Nun never conquered, where over 500,000 Syrians have already been murdered by Bashar al-Assad!

Most people who are taking the vaccine will develop anti-bodies against Covid and will be much better off for getting vaccinated even though there may be longer term dangers to taking a vaccine with this new mRNA technology, or their might be allergic reactions to the inert ingredients that prevent the mRNA from disintegrating before being injected into people. One of my elderly patients just got vaccinated yesterday. His second injection is scheduled within the next 30 days. He has not had an allergic reaction.

Rfarkas: We are in the 6th year of this last seven year cycle. I truly believe this. One of the simanim of the 6th year is in the Hoshanot for HoshaNa Rabbah, the entire 6th stich refers to pulling or squeezing drops of purity out of a body of physicality that is mostly impure. The nature of the physical world at the very end is precisely like this. The 6th year is all about trying to purify those last few vestiges of physicality that can still be dedicated to HaShem before the final purification of human souls by fire in year 7. In some ways that makes the 6th year the most difficult of these last 7 years. There is still purity and productiveness in a field that has been devastated by locusts and plague. Corona is the Plague, but squeezing out the things that can still be dedicated to HaShem is the Avodah of the 6th year.... which we are clearly in.

Maurice: I received your message/Comment from the previous post. My final post on Yehonatan is in part dependent on what actually happens this week in the United States. From the Yalkut Shimoni it is clear that 140 nations will now be judged rather quickly for the tortures that he went through over the last 35 years. It is a Kal veChomer that the nation that tortured him in its legal system will be chief amongst the 140 nations that will be judged. How America will be judged seems to be entirely linked to the outcome of all this Election fraud and Trump's attempt to remain President in spite of it. Will America as a whole simply be saved because for the benefit of the Minority of American Jews who serve G-d in its most corrupt, disgusting, and vile American cities (NewYork, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles)? Will The RedStates now be rewarded for their election of Donald Trump twice (in the RedStates) while this reward will not extend to the States who gave the world Obama, Hillary, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Ilhan Omar and others that if they were elected again would surely send troops to the Jordan Valley (see above) to divide Israel through the UN Sec Council? I am speaking of States that voted for Obama, Hillary and Biden by margins exceeding 55% of the voters in those states, for as a whole they truly deserve the greater Wrath of G-d that the RedStates do not deserve. Of course, it was Caspar Weinberger during a Republican Administration that saw to it that Yehonatan would spend three decades in jail. That is will HaShem "find a way" to reward the pro-Israel RedStates while excluding the vile blue states from that reward, or will everyone be rewarded for the sake of American Orthodox Jews or punished because all of America is responsible for Pollard's tortures in jail? As of today, the 4th of January, it is a toss-up. All three possibilities are potentially achievable. We will have greater clarity over the next ten days.

I was listening to a story about the towering moral greatness of former Democratic NY Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan who was NY Senator for 24 years (1977- 2001), and all I could think was how the mighty have fallen. I am sorry that this tragedy has happened.

Miriam, I posted on this, it is not “injection” it is “THROWN”. That is not the translation of the Metzudos Dovid. It is the writer’s poetic license to pick an interpretation. Please verify sources before assuming everything is true. The original appeared on israel365news.

Yes, the ancient Hebrew meaning of זריקה is "throwing" as when the Kohen Gadol threw blood agaist the corners of the outer altar as required for the Qorban tamid (the twice per day sheep offering). Injection is an ADDITIONAL modern meaning for the word. Zerikah also still means throwing.

The new video by Rabbi Alon Anava about the Corona vaccine was great! He is very very much against anyone taking the vaccine as am I. Dov watch this video I believe you are very mistaken in approving this death vaccine. I believe most who take this vaccine will be dead or infertile or both within 5 years! Rabbi Anava has basically the same sentiments as me as states very strongly the Torah is against taking this very dangerous vaccine! The video is called Should you take the Corona vaccine? Rabbi's say to take it? New info! This video is on you tube and is a MUST SEE!

The issue of vaccine or not is not an issue of "I believe" in the common meaning of the word. It is about science versus Torah emuna. Don't forget that both the RambaM (Maimonides) and the RambaN (Nachmanides) were practitioners of medical healing/doctors.

Issachar is bringing R' Alon Anava for proving his belief. Then let me inform him that another internet R' is advising the public not to listen to Anava and also that indeed you must take the vaccine is your health allows it. I am referring to R' Yosef Mizrachi.

Wow, Republican Loeffler has lost in Georgia to a radical BLM Communist/Nazi type. Perdue seems to have also lost. Georgia Repub voters do not trust the Dominion Software or are angry that the stimulus check is only $600. People who cannot work and live paycheck to paycheck can't just cash in some stocks to pay their bills every month.

This is a horrible state of affairs headed into today's official certification of the Electoral College votes, when Pence opens the sealed envelopes for each state one at a time. Pence MAY be able to send requests for clarification to the five States with Republican legislatures whether their Biden electors were chosen in accordance with their states' laws. According to the US Constitution, only State Legislatures can make the final decision on whether their own State laws to elect electors were followed, especially if the Courts in those states refuse to interpret their own states' laws! Pence MAY have the authority to request such a clarification after one House Rep and one Senator object to the legitimacy of how electors were chosen in any particular state while that state's envelope is being opened. So Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley for instance is objecting over Pennsylvania's Electors, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is objecting over how Arizona's electors were chosen. Including Pennsylvania and Arizona, three other states will be objected over. But even so, the final decision lies with the State Legislatures. Right now Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are already in regular session. Georgia and Arizona will be in session next Monday and Michigan next Wednesday, 13th January. He could probably give them to the 17th of January to respond before counting one of their slates of electors that the State legislatures certify. Or those legislatures might decertify Biden's slate without selecting the other slate that also voted on 14th of December. If That is the case, and Biden by the 17th of January has LESS than 270 votes after at least three states decertify their Biden electors, the Election becomes a contingent election which is decided in the House of Representatives with each state having one vote. So each delegation of US House members votes. Since the Republicans have a narrow majority in 26 or 27 state delegations, Trump could potentially win that way too. But I am sure Pence's hope would be that the five states simply replace the Biden slate with the Trump slate after those state legislatures discover enough fraud in their states. This is all very complicated and speculative because the Constitution is silent on one thing. Does Pence have the power to INDIVIDUALLY send requests for clarification of which elector slates the States would choose if their election laws had been followed? Or does he need a full vote of a majority in both Houses of Congress to do so? On that particular point, the Constitution is silent. Watch for War in Congress to erupt over that point of order.

In order to allow for the possibility of flipping the Presidential election, the Electors in Pennsylvania and probably two other states will need to be decertified or flipped to becoming Trump electors. And remember, Constitutionally, Neither Pence nor Congress can do any decertification. Pence or both Pence and Congress can only ask states to clarify their positions on their elected electors. The five States with Republican legislatures in regular session have the Constitutional power to decertify their own electors and potentially choose the Trump slate that voted on the same day, 14th December. I hope this is understandable to most. We will now wait and see what happens today.

Trump's only other option is to declare Martial Law under the Insurrection Act, an Act from the early 1800s. That would be the worst and most explosive action on his part, but if the Fraud is so grievous in those six states including in Democratically controlled Nevada, he may "feel" or think that he has no other option.

I completely disagree. Pence Cannot send requests even with an objection. There is no provision in the Constitution, nor Statutes that 'allow' such action. The statute is clear on the procedures. The two Houses "vote" on the objection and there is where it stands.

The Insurrection Act cannot be used in this case either. It specifically prohibits it's use for election purposes.

But, right now we appear to be seeing an "American Spring" with large numbers of supporters entering the Capital. In the confusion one young woman Trump supporter was shot in the neck. On the way to the ambulance medics were doing CPR. This may be another "shot heard round the world". This will likely be seen as a martyr, galvanizing the nation against "The State".

I had hopes, and could imagine, scenarios that were far different than most articulated. But I also saw "This" possibility. Shortly after inauguration I saw the explosion of the #Resist movement and how Big Media was sanctioning it and saw a possible result. At that time I wrote the Correspondents Association, on their website, that the media was instigating an insurrection by their coverage. The comment was deleted within 15 minutes. No one on the right could dispute what the media was doing. We are "NOW" in a situation where both the Right AND the Left are in agreement with one thing, hatred of the Government AND it's institutions. A country cannot last long with that result.

Ephraim Yochanan: mRNA vaccines do NOT alter the DNA hardcopy in the cell's nucleus. They only introduce new proteins in the cell's cytoplasm. It is FALSE to state that the DNA is altered by an mRNA vaccine in spite of the other real risks.

Sharbano: The Constitution says that only State legislatures have authority to set rules for choosing electors and to oversee if those electors were chosen in accordance with state laws. The Constitution is SILENT on exactly what Pence CANNOT procedurally do. So he has the authority to seek council with State Legislatures because he is the one counting the votes. The Constitution does not assume that the VP is a simple automoton. So he surely has the authority that I have outlined. He can even set the 18th of January as a deadline for the 6 state legislatures to respond (as long as the Inauguration is at noon on the 20th).
