3333 Years and Counting Since Matan Torah

 To be honest, I was writing a post almost three weeks ago before Lag b'Omer.  I was going to finish it on Lag b'Omer (the 33rd day of the Counting of the Omer) when that horrible tragedy happened in Meron in which the Police seemed to have engaged in Gross Negligence by closing the Exit spigot from the Toldot Aharon bonfire courtyard.  This is not to say that there were way too many people in the Chatzer for the space that was provided, and during all these years, more exits should have been built in preparation for the parabolically expanding crowd numbers.  That part was NOT the fault of the Police.  But the Police heard the cries of people trying to leave that their closing the one exit for what is still an unknown reason was going to lead to a Mass-Crushing or a Mass-Trampling event which is PRECISELY what occurred.  Why did they not let the burgeoning crowds leave?  You will have to ask the Police who were involved, or as is usually the case in this country the foxes who guard the chicken coops will be investigating themselves on why they behaved as they did.  But enough of this.  There are plenty of other blogs and websites who are calling the behavior of the Police into serious question and rightly so.  On a spiritual level, we are most likely (not absolutely) nearing the end of the fifth month of the infamous 9 months during which Raw Evil has encircled the Globe between the Middle or 15th of Tevet and Hoshana Rabbah which is almost invariably 271 days of Pregnancy.   One might count the 9 months from the Day that Trump left the Presidency on the 20th of January (7th of Shvat 5781), but notice that that date is over 3 weeks AFTER the 15th of Tevet.  The Seminal event that seems to have happened on the 15th of Tevet at 4am is the landing in Eretz Yisrael of the 6th and final Mashiach ben Yosef (Yehonatan Pollard and his wife Esther), who is the actual Tor in Sefer Kol HaTor who will be Mashiach ben David's General against Amaleq when that time arrives.  I am speaking of the Tor (turtledove) which survives the long night of the Covenant Between the Parts (Gen 15:9- 10) without being cut in half and is set free at dawn.  The other bird that is not cut in two is a Gozal which Chaza"l tell us is a Ben Yonah (a male Dove).  That other bird  represents Mashiach ben David.  In short, both birds (who have been imprisoned with ankle bracelets around one of their legs) have those ankle bracelets removed at Sunrise on the Redemption.  So since the 6th and final Mashiach ben Yosef who is really Mashiach ben Ephraim from the Yalkut Shimoni (the previous post) has finally come home to Tzion a free man in the 6th year or the Yesod year of this Shmittah cycle, Mashiach ben David is surely coming by either Sukkot or Shavuot of the Motzei Shmittah year 5783.  To be honest because of the evidence of how things have transpired since the first and second weeks in June 1967 and again in 2016, I am not sure if Ben David comes b'itah during Sukkot or during Shavuot of the same year 5783.  Of course, he can come Achishena as early as a minute from now, but B'itah B'itah he is coming in this coming Motzei Shmittah year.  That is the Good news.  Let me briefly explain why this time it is b'itah even though I have explained this at length in previous posts.  And everything that is happening right now has to do with final tikunnim in the 6th year of the cycle because after this pivotal coming Yom Kippur of the Shmittah year 5782, the entire World is going into serious end of days final judgement for its outrageous rebellion against G-d.  According to Zecharia 13, two thirds of Mankind or 5 billion people may die in the Shmittah year.  The Vilna Gaon says 1/3 will die (2.5 billion) while 2.5 billion more will suffer from the serious plague of Radiation sickness or the effect of a nuclear blast on the human body described in Zecharia 14.  So, HaShem wants our Teshuvah IN ADVANCE of this pivotal coming Yom Kippur for our collective and individual crimes since the founding of the State of Israel so that Klal Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael need not suffer death nor suffer from the plague of Zecharia 14 in the Sabbatical year when the nations of the world will not be so lucky!  So this situation in Israel that we are in now is a blessing, not a curse.  The trials and tribulations of this present War are 100% in line with repairing our mistakes and sins as Klal Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael and amongst Jews in Chu"l who love Eretz Yisrael and Klal Yisrael's ingathering once again in Eretz Yisrael.  We are all part of this, and with four months to go until Yom Kippur 5782, we better get our Act together! 

Continuing to write this post.  I am posting now anyway in order for people to start commenting while I continue to write this post.  Our Electricity has been very unstable this evening.  I have no idea if our electricity will just end at any moment for the night because of the War or because we are simply having frequent outages right now.   So I am posting this limited segment now.  Please start commenting if you want while I continue writing.

Rav Berland has continually spoken about 5781 being the year for Geula, so IYH something good will happen sooner than you predict. On a personal note, my daughter finally got engaged (motzei shabbos before Shavuos), hours after her 25th Hebrew birthday, so Moshiach must be coming, LOL... I'm still hoping the wedding will be in Eretz Hakodesh (although it is being planned for Lakewood at the moment).

I pray for Achishena every moment of every day, but if we treat each other as we did during the Disengagement over 15 years ago, we can expect nothing more than b'itah. And b'itah involves a Big World War in Year 7 and Ben David coming in year 8. I resigned myself to that basic moral principle of cause and effect 15 1/2 years ago. It is why the test of 5765 (2005) for Mashiach to come b'itah Achishena during the Gog ben Gog Shmittah cycle was NOT a test of higher levels of Shabbat observance, but a test of basic human decency.... which many of us simply failed. If you ask many including Moshe Gafni of Degel HaTorah, he did not even comprehend as late as 2017 that he had failed a monumental test, delaying Mashiach's coming by 2 full Shmittah cycles. He was not the only one, but at least the Chassidim in Agudah who joined Sharon's govt realized by August of 2005 that they had failed a monumental test. Eichler figured it out. Litzman figured it out. To his great credit Meir Porush was against it from the beginning. And of course Rav Ovadia Yosef and Shas passed that test with flying colors because they were ALL here during the 4 to 5 years of horror called the Al Aksa Intifada which came on the heals of Oslo.... which they endorsed. But by 2003, Rav Ovadia had repented of his support for Oslo, and he refused to join Sharon's folly. And even there, the two were not the same. Oslo did not result in the Destruction of yishuvim. It cordoned off 40% of Yesha into Areas A and B. The Disengagement was unilateral destruction of Jewish life and Jewish towns and a full fledged retreat. And only now in this war is the entire Tel Aviv/ Rishon LeTzion Bubble that fully endorsed the Disengagement, and asked for more under Olmert, to receive worldwide accolades and popularity, that lasted about one week, only in this war are they finally feeling the full measure of cause and effect for supporting Sharon's folly.

Thanks for posting Reb Dov.

I find it hard to envisage America under Biden going to war against Iran.
The Iranians want him there, to agree a nuclear deal for them.

So I wonder if the hint has been this past month in France, where at first 20 leading military officers, then around 2000 troops, wrote two letters to the government warning of civil war if radical Islam was allowed to continue to grow in France?

Might a faction from within the American military take power from an ailing Biden, so that they can confront Iran?
Might we see a far-left Democratic take-over of Biden's Presidency, followed by the response, a military coup by conservatives?

Let's see how this cease-fire goes.

Shabbat Shalom

During the infamous 9 months of Pregnancy, we are in the most danger. It seems that the 9 months will end during Sukkot which will begin in about 4 months and one week from now. Since we need more protection as a Klal during this perilous time of pregnancy, many righteous tzaddiqim have been lost in the last few months, most notably the 45 pure souls who lost their lives in Meron while exiting the Toldot Aharon bonfire courtyard on Lag b'Omer and last Erev Shabbat the mass tragedy at the Stoliner Shul in Givat Ze'ev. Because a Jew who keeps mitzvot by 100 fold has mitzvot which outweigh the Aveirot of those who do Aveirot, the loss of 50 such lives saves the lives of 5000 more secular Jews during this trying time. I hate doing such Cheshbonot, but obviously the pure qorbonot that preceded the War seem to have kept the loss of life during this time at a minimum. HaShem knows what we have suffered as a people, and at the bare minimum, even for secular Jews living in Israel at this time counteracts the Sin of the Spies. And for that alone, counteracting the loss of thousands of Jewish lives in a War from which we must learn lessons, pure Qorbonot were required in advance of the War where Israel is truly alone with G-d in the World. Four months to go of this, and it is likely that the last 3 months will be the most difficult. I always wondered what the 9 months would be like, and we are living it right now. I also wonder if during the end period of these 9 months if the UN Sec Council will send troops to divide.... before Yom Kippur and Sukkot. We shall see.

The Lie that many have told themselves that 90% or 95% of Israeli Arabs are decent citizens and human beings that secular Israelis have told themselves has truly been proven to be a 72 year old lie. You cannot watch the rioting in Lod, Yaffo, and Acre without coming to the conclusion that at least a Majority of Israeli Arabs want us dead. So when Mashiach ben David expels 70 to 80% of Israeli Arabs and stateless squatters originally from Egypt, Ammon, and Moab to whence they came, we will understand that those 70 to 80% are unable to keep the basic laws of human decency required of a Ger Toshav (a gentile resident of the Holy Land). This is another one of those tikkunnim that needed to precede Yom Kippur of the Shmittah year. The secular lies that Israeli have told themselves are all being blown up like an empty Gazan office building.

Lisa, your on to something. I was thinking, when they see how door to door murdering is accomplishing chv”s and they started in co-existence buildings, what is to keep them from doing the same in all cities of Israel??? The chicken police couldn’t open fire on those murderers?? Instead they just removed the Jews to safety? Something is bass-ackwards here! The police can beat up religious Yidden but they are afraid of the pere Adam terrorists? They can cause ..... in Meron but cannot CRUSH the terrorists?? Co-existence to the terrorists only means “where we live is Arab land” even in any Israeli city! “They shout out loud that we, the Israelis and Jews are trespassing on THEIR LAND!
Imagine they were going door to door targeting Jews, JUST LIKE IN 1929!

That's what's bothersome that even some frum who Jews say there are good pereadam. How can we define what is so clear in the Torah to mean something else; i.e., the Torah straight forwardly says 'they will be the thorns and thistles in your sides and eyes if you do not expel the inhabitants therein'. This is why H' has to always awaken us out of our galut thinking and make us realize the only friend and ally is our Father in Heaven and what HE says goes!!!
Why didn't the Jews listen to a truly honest and righteous tzadik when he forewarned all the troubles that would come if we did not heed our Father in Heaven's Commands?

I saw footage in the Times of Israel of a group of about 20 Israeli Arabs attacking a Jew in Jaffa.
We are not talking about disturbances in Los Angeles, or New York, we are talking about Jaffa, in the heart of Israel.
I am tired of this submission, omission and passivity of some Jewish sectors. I'm tired of every anti-Semitic attack coming to the Anti-Defamation League just to protest on twitter. Where's the Jewish Defense League? Does it only exist in France and Canada? Where are the young Jewish men and women with true burning love for the Jewish people?
Are you afraid of being accused of being racist?
Now, research about Arab history and see who is racist. Ethnic, tribal and family divisions have been at the heart of the Arab community for centuries, and that is why they hate each other. Who enslaved thousands of Europeans, mutilated thousands of slaves and acted as African traffickers? Muslim Arabs.
No more remorse or guilt for acts that were never exclusively Jewish. There is nothing wrong with shouting loud and clear, we are against assimilation! We are against interfaith marriages, and even a marriage between a ger and an Israelis is inappropriate until the ger is in its third generation, that is the Torah.

And if we have to take up arms, we will take up arms.

Up to 40% of Jews in Israel likely have souls from the Erev Rav. I believe that because that was the approximate percentage at Yetziat Mitzraim. 6 million total - 1.2 million adults from the Shevatim - another 2 million children under age 20 = 2.8 million from the Erev Rav out of 6 million total. If we are all the souls of the Desert Generation in Eretz Yisrael being the 111th generation since the Dor haDei'ah, then I would expect the same percentages of Jews this time around. The problem is that of the 4 Qlipot of the Erev Rav composing the 5 root Neshamot from the Zohar, only Qlipah Noga is potentially redeemable. Ariel Sharon was assuredly from Qlipah Noga. He died when Venus (Noga) was in inferior conjunction with earth on the 10th of Shvat in 5774 (2014). So sometimes he rose to great heights and other times to low lows. That is the nature of Noga. The other 3 Qlipot are irredeemable, meaning they will never learn and never repent. Frankly, they have been treacherous and irredeemable for over 3300 years. They, under the guise of Bolshevism, murdered my father's mother's father in front of 4 of his children including my grandmother in cold blood for not swearing allegiance to the new Eastern European faith. 120 yrs later they control the Courts, half of the Police, and the electronic media in Eretz Yisrael and whatever is left of International Labor Bolshevism.

To be honest, they can only be defeated after a worldwide Economic Collapse of sorts because the bulk of מקנה כבד in Klal Yisrael is under their control. So how do we actually get rid of them? They will always be treacherous and will not repent. That is the meaning of irredeemable. I am open for suggestions. How do we get rid of them, without an actual War? Without bloodshed? I am not a violent man. They more concern me than all the nations of the World combined. Nations and Empires rise and fall, but the Erev Rav never goes away. Try to protect ourselves as peacefully as possible, but .... keep our powder dry. And Pray for a miracle. Last night they held a huge rally in Tel Aviv for more failed coexistence with the 20 or 30% of Arabs who actually want to coexist with us, blatantly ignoring the 70% who want us "no longer alive"! If they can watch what happened in Lod, Akko, and Yafo and not repent from their failed system of beliefs, then they are from the irredeemable Qlipot of the Erev Rav. They are Mesirat Nefesh on their lives and ours in order to prove to a Reprobate majority human race how lovable they are! I am open for suggestions. They LITERALLY will never learn.

The police are experts in writing up tickets for fines of 1000 shekels for Jewish drivers who dare to touch their cell phones while patiently waiting at red lights. They even have undercover officers dressed up like beggars who stealthily approach unsuspecting drivers who are waiting at stoplights to catch them in the act of touching their cell phones.

The media continues to lie and distort news ‘comments’ surrounding that true lynching (the suffocating) of innocent Jews. [despite being a decree from shamayim]. I don’t think we can go against them directly. What we can do is uncover those who make the rules for them. Disclose the fallacies and evil decisions of anyone in public responsibility. The drip drip method. Uncovering and exposing the masterminds will help ordinary good Israelis to understand how their freedoms are being eroded. Especially those in the health ministry working in tandem with ‘ds’ forces. These diabolical minds that would deliberately inject good Israelis with de-pop. concoctions, and now innocent babies is truly anti-God. We must identify and expose the evil. Bacteria under sunlight fades. A little light dispels the darkness. We must shine the spotlight on them. This is the Gog uMagog war for our Neshomas.

That is most assuredly NOT the Torah on this matter. This rule applies only to Cohanim marrying descendants of gerim. Please be very sure of your facts before spreading such falsehoods. In addition, it would be incorrect to use the term Israeli rather then Jew as an Israeli can be any person holding Israeli citizenship, Jewish or not.

for @Devorah Chaya

There is an intense discussion about gerim weddings at Gemara, and it is not just for cohanim.
The appropriate thing would be for Gerim to marry each other until the third generation so that they can enter the congregation of Israel, that is, to marry a Jew of Yichus.
In practice, this does not always happen, except in strictly observant orthodox communities.

Likewise a Jew who came to suffer mutilation he cannot marry a Jewish woman by birth but a convert, just as Rav Amram Blau z'l did when his first wife died, due to his war wounds during the siege of Jerusalem, married a convert later.

Anon Realist: That may apply to Tzoanim because they are likely real Egyptians where that Halakhah is d'Oraita, but why would that Chumrah apply to anyone else? The 3 generation rule in the Torah is only for Egyptians and Idumeans or if a Kohen wants to marry a convert as mentioned above. Beyond that, it is because of Communal Chumrot which are ok for those communities but not for All of Klal Yisrael.

Agree with Reb Dov on this gerim question. The Anonymous Realist who wrote about Rabbi Blau should know that rabbi Blau was from the ultra Satmar type whose thinking is quite alien to the rest of our people. If I'm correct, he's the rabbi who was in constant strife with the big Rabbanim of the time in E.Y.
Also, in regard to Gen. Sharon's geneology, his mother was not Jewish but from what I read she became a giyoret, but not sure if it was kosher or not. In regard to the Erev Rav, believe they will surely be gone with the coming of Moshiach (MBY) or even MBD. In the meantime, it must be publicly exposed to the Jews of EY that the government and especially the Sup.Court and the higher ups in the IDF are the Erev Rav, of which our Sages tell us they will be 'our worst enemies'. Enough said for us to understand how much of an enemy they really are.

Do not lose Faith. The present Israeli governance may crumble during that time, even more than it has already. The UN Sec Council may send troops during those last 3 months. By the time of Sukkot 5782, the Shmittah year will have already commenced, and only G-d Himself might be "governing" Israel with no pretense of ANY Israeli government. And believe it or not, when that occurs, the Final SPIRITUAL Redemption will have begun ironically when the human government through the Knesset and PM are ineffective and are in shambles!! Only G-d will reign here in Israel during the lengthy 13 month Shmittah year as He judges Mankind. So rather than despairing over the Disintegration of the present Govt and its institutions, CELEBRATE IT!

So with all the alien disclosure being pushed on us as possibly happening soon, I have a different possible scenario for the end of days. Gog from the land of magog is from the uttermost north, so north could be considered up as well so could uttermost north be outer space? Could not the entire world assault Jerusalem but possibly an alien invasion as well? Jerusalem has been known as a hotbed of UFO activity. Just a wild thought, what do you think?

5/26/2021 8:35 AM  
Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

No, Uttermost North is most assuredly Russia. Moscow and The Tubal east of Urals Siberian people are specifically mentioned. Magog is the Mongols, but is more complex than that. What is worth noting is that the northern 35% of Eretz Yisrael, according to Mattot/Masei, was never conquered by Yehoshu bin Nun. It remained mostly unconquered until our generation. At this moment Russia controls swaths of Western Syria which according to Kaftor veFerach belong to E. YISrael. So maybe the Russian invasion is already in progress.

H' Yerachem. When one starts to think too much, it's too overwhelming. Want to reply to Yissachar & Yosef's comment:
There are no alien beings and this is something purposely being promoted now by the ptb's (it's all part of their agenda). They know they can indoctrinate most, because people are sheeple and those uninformed are the easiest prey. When all else fails, the invasion might scare everyone - that's their thinking. The only other beings are angels, so forgot about that idea!

The scenario is estimated, according to “ leading French virologist Luc Montagnier” everyone that got the jab will no longer be among the living, if and when the coming flu season arrives, because they will suffer from ADE. His prognostications are very sobering. One should, if they received the jab, begin to flood your system with anti–inflammatory nutrients, in addition to using those treatments banned but successful in treating the virus. In one way, knowing that one may leave the world in the near future, gives one opportunity to do a full teshuva, in anticipation of greeting HaShem.

It is actually a blessing from Shamayim to be able to prepare, and one should do this from “yirah” AND “ahava”.

The Erev Rav was ORIGINALLY invited into Klal Yisrael when Shimon and Levi had them, from the City of Shekhem convert through Brit Milah.... before they slaughtered them. But their merit to remain as part of us for the last 3333 years is because Moshe Rabbeinu personally accepted them and their brit milah before everyone slaughtered the Qorban Pesach before leaving Egypt as insincere as their conversion may have been. Now why did Moshe accept their conversion? That is another question!

I read somewhere that Moshe Rabbeinu wanted to hasten Mashiach, so he accepted the Erev Rav whom he believed would do Teshuvah be part of Klal Yisrael when Mashiach comes.
Of course that is guessing what Moshe thought, but it's a theory.

I have a couple of guesses.

One is that they were useful for military matters, being "rough around the edges" types.

The other is that somehow he knew there would be strong spiritual forces opposing us returning to the land in the 19th and early 20th centuries. So he let the Erev Rav be part of us so that their immoral behaviour would fool the Sitra Acha into reducing that opposition, that the Erev Rav's immorality was appealing to the SItra Acha to take place in the land.

But eventually they would repent or be cast out.

Bibi should have approved the budget and let Gantz replace him as PM in November in the midst of a religious right-wing government (of which Netanyahu would still be part of). He was hoping to kill Gantz politically and then somehow get 61 seats in another election so he doesnt have to share power. Bad move, Bibi. And greedy. Now we will have a government full of kofrim that want to change the status quo on religion and state, no participation of Haredi parties, two leftist parties that might complicate security matters and Raam that won't allow Shabbak to watch and punish the Arab rioters. A very fragile coalition with nothing in common other than "Bibi lech" for some reason (economy, security, vaccines and new peace treaties are great, but he must be replaced for some strange reason). Damn all their stupid ego... Bibi, Bennett and Saar. Damn their silly pride. Three right-wing parties, two centrist, two leftist and one Arab. This is the abomination of coalition. Four of those parties are openly hostile to the Torah (Yesh Atid, Yisrael Beitenu, Avoda, Meretz). The rest couldn't care less about Hashem. It reminds me of the Lisa Simpsons meme: 'I'm not a government, I'm a monster.' Let's see how many months such a government lasts. May Hashem help us. I voted Shas.

The only way that Bibi gets replaced tenuously as PM in the next few weeks will be to draw the nations of the World to Eretz Yisrael to the Valley of Yehoshafat for instantaneous judgement during Sukkot 5782 in their drive to divide Eretz Yisrael (Yoel 3-4 and Zech 14). In short the b'itah Achishena paradigm of Zecharia 12 gives way to the b'itah paradigm of Zecharia 14 before the end of 5781! We are in the last 4 months of the 9 month pregnancy. Expect the last 3 months or the third trimester to be a time of travail. HaShem wants the birth to bring forth a beautiful baby, but expect rapid deterioration of Olam HaZeh in the final 3 months in order to make way for a Year of recompense for the cause of Tzion.

Bibi is the final PM of a relatively stable State of Israel whose yichus is meticulously described in Zecharia 12. If we had somehow merited it, ben David would have arisen during this 6th year of this final pre-Messianic Shmittah cycle while Bibi's efficacy was waning (and ending with an assassination by Armilus in Zech 12:10). Instead Bibi is being replaced by an Assafsuph, a hoi paloi, a rabble of Wannabees who are all sick and tired of the 5th Mashiach ben Yosef whose yichus is detailed in Zecharia 12. (Pollard, Mashiach ben Ephraim, is the 6th MBY) Yet, the Zech 12 and Zech 14 paradigms are intentionally contradictory with each other. When one of them is happening, the other one is not happening. If we somehow do not merit the former paradigm, Rock bottom b'itah comes with the latter Zech 14 paradigm. In Siwan of 5781 we seem to be transitioning to the latter Zech 14 paradigm (and Yoel 3-4 paradigm) TO BE COMPLETED BY THE END OF THE 9 MONTHS DURING SUKKOT 5782. I should make it clear that the last moments of Olam HaZeh described for Yerushalayim in Zech 14 are described for all of Eretz Yisrael including Judea and Samaria in Yoel 3- 4.

Betzalel: This 3rd trimester of the pregnancy is Precisely the moment of Chaos reigning in Eretz Yisrael when G-d Himself takes over the reins of power, with no pretense of any human face of leadership, starting after Yom Kippur of the Shmittah year 5782. In the 3 month lead up to Sukkot 5782, expect a massive collapse of secular government authority, and expect the nations of the world and our Israeli Arab "so called peaceful neighbors" to take advantage of the Erev Rav's and The 5th MBY's loss of control. As I stressed in the Comments above, this loss of control is for our benefit in the Shmittah year and beyond. Do not fear the Collapse that is coming to Eretz Yisrael during this third trimester. It is a temporary and on the surface an apparently dangerous aberration. Stay safe during in this last trimester of the pregnancy, and you will reap a long term reward. I realize that the 45 Qorbonot in Meron prevented the loss of thousands of lives when Hamas deliberately and randomly shot off their missiles. But lessons were learned. 1. There is no running away from the Churban inflicted on Jewish Gaza in 2005 and 2. Anyone who ever said that the vast majority of Israeli Arabs were peace loving citizens, is a bold faced liar who can never be trusted again. By the way, Naftali Bennett is one of those liars. I forgot the percentage that he quoted when he said 90 to 98% of Israeli Arabs were good, peaceful citizens, truly a bold faced lie.

I add the following Psalm about Yishmael, psalm 120, to drive home these points:

א  שִׁיר, הַמַּעֲלוֹת:
אֶל-יְהוָה, בַּצָּרָתָה לִּי--    קָרָאתִי, וַיַּעֲנֵנִי.1 A Song of Ascents. {N}
In my distress I called unto the LORD, and He answered me.
ב  יְהוָה--הַצִּילָה נַפְשִׁי, מִשְּׂפַת-שֶׁקֶר:    מִלָּשׁוֹן רְמִיָּה.2 O LORD, deliver my soul from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.
ג  מַה-יִּתֵּן לְךָ, וּמַה-יֹּסִיף לָךְ--    לָשׁוֹן רְמִיָּה.3 What shall be given unto thee, and what shall be done more unto thee, thou deceitful tongue?
ד  חִצֵּי גִבּוֹר שְׁנוּנִים;    עִם, גַּחֲלֵי רְתָמִים.4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of broomshrub tree.
ה  אוֹיָה-לִי, כִּי-גַרְתִּי מֶשֶׁךְ;    שָׁכַנְתִּי, עִם-אָהֳלֵי קֵדָר.5 Woe is me, that I sojourn with Meshech, that I dwell beside the tents of Qeidar!
ו  רַבַּת, שָׁכְנָה-לָּהּ נַפְשִׁי--    עִם, שׂוֹנֵא שָׁלוֹם.6 My soul hath full long had her dwelling with him that hateth peace.
ז  אֲנִי-שָׁלוֹם, וְכִי אֲדַבֵּר;    הֵמָּה, לַמִּלְחָמָה.7 I am all peace; but when I speak, they are for war.

My take on the above Psalm is that it is 100% about the Yishmaelim, The Bedouin tents of Qeidar, with whom we dwell, thinking that they are peace-loving residents of the Land while they themselves speak of War. And who are the lying lips, and who are those who speak with deceitful tongues? Those who have always lied to us about how the vast majority of Arab citizens want peaceful coexistence with us!

"Anyone who ever said that the vast majority of Israeli Arabs were peace loving citizens, is a bold faced liar who can never be trusted again."

"The Arabs are the same Arabs... and the sea, the same sea" (Yitzhak Shamir)
I was one of those fools who thought most Israeli Arabs didn't really care about Balestine, since they have a good standard of living here and more freedom than anywhere else in the Middle East. After Bibi spent billions of shekels on them, I never thought they would dare to rebel openly against the state and burn synagogues in the heartland of Israel. But I wasn't lying to myself on purpose. I was simply mistaken and I let myself be deceived. It looked too good to be true. Never again. When Mashiach comes, we will finish what we started in 1948... or should I say what THEY started and we didn't finish completely? The only goim that will be allowed to remain in Eretz Israel must be loyal to the country, recognize absolute Jewish sovereignty and keep the seven noahide laws. Only if they keep their heads low, don't contest our lordship in this country and don't worship idols they will be allowed to remain as ger toshavim, similar to the dhimmi status in Islam. We don't want more potential threats. Yes, don't be afraid to say that. The Torah is not politically correct. 'Equality' was never a value in Judaism nor should be. But we can't do this without a serious war, and not just against the Arabs, maybe also against leftist Jews and the West. Mashiach will destroy armies with words from his mouth. We can't do this without Mashiach ben David. I really hope Mashiach comes before it's too late. I'm afraid what's going to happen without him.

Vaccine: the issue isn't whether or not you took it, but whether your decision was based on knowing Ein Od Milvado. The more you trust in Hashem the greater your hashgacha pratit.

We all have things to fix, but one of the big issues is women's modesty, and especially frum women. Another big issue, especially among frum English speaking Jews is not being an enticer/inciter to avoda zara and not loving a person who is. These are mitzvot de'oreita. Just as we would be very careful not to eat something even on the slightest doubt it wasn't kosher, so too we should be very careful with all the isurim regarding avoda zara.

Learning Torah, gemilut chassadim, tsedaka, tsniut, being zikui harabim .... all of these protect a person, and learning Torah at every meal.

Rav Kanievsky and the gedolei Hador said clearly to take the vaccine. By not doing that, You are going against Hashem who commanded to obey the chachamim. It has nothing to do with "ein od milevado", just like putting yourself in danger by crossing the street without looking is a sin and danger to zakana nefashot, regardless of your trust in Hashem, who is not obligated to perform miracles for someone who puts himself or herself in danger. Also vaccines in Israel defeated Covid, all restriccions Will be lifted soon and those who didnt listen to the chachamim Will have to face the consequences in the afterlife.

Dov, I read somewhere that the Zohar says techiyat hametim will happen in the year 5790 ONLY IF WE HAVE THE MERIT. Meaning if we don't (which is more likely) Mashiach could come even after 5790, but before 6000 of course. Could You check the source? It is a 'must' that the resurrection (ergo mashiach) has to occurr no later than 5790? Also it says 40 years before that (5750) the kibbutz galuyiot will happen, which was when the iron curtain fell and over a million Soviet Jews and their relatives came to Israel. We are only talking b'eita, since obviously our merits are lacking, unfortunately. I hope that Bennett doesnt allow Lieberman, Lapid and the left to go full force against the Torah, since after all he is technically "religious" or is supposed to represent a part of the religious zionist voters.

Andr?: The immediate result of 50% of a population taking the Vaccine is overwhelmingly positive. Yet, because of the stipulation of Trump's Operation Warp Speed to create a vax which stops the Pandemic cold in its tracks without doing intensive research into the longterm effects of the vaccine, there are big question marks about what will happen by September when the antibody count from the vaccine tapers off? Will we all need a booster to keep up our immunity? (Which I will not take). Did the vaccine make us all susceptible to flu viruses and other viruses in the Fall and Winter of 2021/ 2022 as the effects of an mRNA strand from the spike protein wears off? Because of the nature of the speed in formulating this vaccine, these longterm studies were not done before the vaccine was approved in accordance with Trump's Warpspeed guidelines.

Must say, that Andre has his own viewpoints on matters of interpretations in Torah law. There is much I would like to say but will not. But, by now most should know that the Rav takes advice from askanim because he is not aware, just as many great Torah learners are on events of the day. They do not read the daily newspapers, radio, television or internet, for sure. Everyone knows that many askanim are no different than the typical businessman and gives the advice the way he wants to for his own reasons. Believe the Rav was misguided and misled! Simple as that. It is also known by now through information given by big scientists, research doctors, etc. that this vaccine should never have been given to the public without being tested & tried first, after at least five to ten years. This was the first time ever that a vaccine was given to the public without ever having it tested and tried for at least a minimum of five or so. This was a big mistake and we pray to H' that HE make His people and all good people invulnerable to the frightening effects this jab might have on the populations. H' Yerachem! As a commenter above wrote, Trust in H' will, hopefully, give the immunity to all the bad that might, otherwise, come from this whole sad episode.

I definitely hope that Hashem will protect the people and counteract the negative effects for the people who took the shot BECAUSE their rav said to. At the same time, I am sure Hashem will not penalize those of us who did our research and know what the pro-vax rabbanim do NOT know.

To andr, it is very much a queston of Ein Od Milvado. Yes Rav Kanievsky shlita said to take the vaccine, and also gave clear instructions about which tefilot to say before and after, including repeating Ein Od Milvado. There is a very big difference between taking the vaccine because you believe that that is what will save you and taking it from a place of trusting only in Hashem and emunat chachamim. And some people were specifically advised not to take it on account of health issues. The example of crossing the street is not appropriate, as it is not even a debatable issue.

I hope that everyone who took the vaccine on account of listening to Rav Kanievsky also made aliya, learns Torah assiduously, dresses modestly or ensure their wives do, because the rav also called for all of these things.

Dov, excuse me for what I'm about to say, but I think that Mansour Abbas might be the instrument that Hashem chose to stop us from falling to complete spiritual destruction, since the islamist Raam party is against all kind of abominations, so Abbas is not going to accept remaining in a government coalition that legalizes gay marriage like the smolanim wish, also there are a few "religious" MKs in Yamina, so I think Avoda and Meretz will limit themselves to advance their agenda only regarding labour laws, education and health, they won't push for a fakestinian state nor fighting the Torah. It's ironic that an ishmaeli whose main interest is to gain concessions for the Arab sector is closer in his values to morality and kedusha than so many among our own people. Nevertheless, i'm worried about the budget for yeshivot once Lieberman takes charge of the ministry of finance. But if that's what Hashem chose, it's probably because the haredim lack merits, so in my humble estimation He is not going to retaliate against the entire nation if Lieberman decides to mess around with the status quo on religion and state. Accepting non-kosher marriages and fake conversions like the kofrim and reformim want is another concern regarding the new government, but I don't think Matan Kahana is going to allow such a state of degeneracy as minister of religious affairs. After all, he is supposedly shomer mitzvot, in addition to war hero, sayeret matkal veteran and former fighter pilot. Let's hope that everything turn out for the best. Also I want to remind you that the government is not formed yet and there are at least two Yamina members that expressed their opposition to such a coalition, which means in that case they have only 60 MKs, although if the Arabs of the Joint List intervene to help the new coalition get rid of Bibi, then we are really in problems, since those Arabs, unlike Abbas, are actual enemies who don't substitute ideology for pragmatism, and they might want concessions too. We'll see, but the pride of politicians, mainly Saar, Bibi and Lieberman, is sickening. I'm less worried about giving parts of eretz Israel since three parties are right-wing and include people like Dani Dayan from Yesha council who is with Gidon Saar. May Hashem have mercy on us.

1. I have no issues with Mansour Abbas. He seems to represent the approx. 30% of Israeli Arabs who want to live with us as Gerei Toshav (fully keeping Noahide laws) albeit with full Civil rights. And he wants recognition of so called illegal Bedouin tent cities. I say, who cares? It is the nature of a nomadic people, to pitch their tents by the side of a trail or in this case roads. So recognize where they pitched their tents 50 years ago, and let us move on. It is the 70% of Arabs who voted for the other Arab parties who need to be placed in leaky boats in the Red Sea so that they swim to Saudi Arabia. The only stipulations on a Ger Toshav:
1. Recognize Jewish sovereignty
2. Cannot marry Jews
3. Cannot buy property in Eretz Yisrael from Jews. The last stipulation may not apply to property in the Negev south of Beer Sheva, but from Beer Sheva north, it applies.

2. The purpose of this govt, if it is actually formed, is to quickly create enough perceived weakness that events occur that will quickly lead to the attempt of the nations of the world to divide Jerusalem and Israel probably in the next 3 or 4 months. And the only unifying principal of this govt is to force the perceived king, Bibi, to abdicate.

3. Yes, the Chareidim losing their source of governmental funds is in large part a tikkun for the Ashkenazi Chareidim TAKING the governmental monies given to them in 2005 (290 million shekels) in exchange for enabling Sharon's Churban of Jewish Gaza.

I truly expect events to move fast in the next 2 or 3 months. Either there will be more bloody riots in the mixed cities, or either Hamas or Hezbollah will initiate another missile war. Or the Arabs will create a reason to riot over Jewish encroachment in Silwan or Shimon HaTzaddiq. This government will create perceived weaknesses, and the Majority Arab hatred reaction will be fierce. The nations of the world will quickly side with those who hate us, and Walla. This is the nature of a world in the quicksand below Mem Tet Shaarei tumah.

In the interim if Bennett and Saar are smart, they should propose a "compromise" with Monsour Abbas, that in exchange for recognition of his tent cities in the Northern Negev, Jewish "tent or caravan cities" should be also legalized in Judea and Samaria.

In a very deep way, Trump was set up to protect us from a Reprobate world below -49 in years 2 through 5 of this last Sabbatical cycle, and during the "9 months" of this 6th year, the protection has been temporarily removed. It is a big set up to judge Mankind in Year 7.

Thank you Reb Dov.

I worry about violence coming to Yerushalayim. Don’t think they’ll send missiles here in fear of blowing up their mosques. They know they can run over the Jews in middle of the country; but what about their “Custards Last Stand” of Jerusalem? Remember the 80,000 on Har Habayit recently? That’s 80,000 Sharp Knives!
Should we expect any support from the “settlers” in Yehuda and Shomron?

About the Shmittah year, what if someone doesn’t want to eat that which is bought from the Arabs? What other choice do they have? Can someone out of fear of potential toxic poisoning (biosludge) or just on (neged terrorists) principle, eat the state’s heksher?

By the way my assessment of Monsuer Abbas and any Arab who lives here from a point of view of decency and mutual respect is obviously not final or conclusive. We live in an evolving situation. Right now we assume, falsely so, that Yesha has within Areas A and B about 2 1/2 million stateless Arabs who, if they could avoid behaving like savages, might be deserving of some sort of political autonomy. For one, absent a bona fide census, the actual population of stateless Arabs is probably half of that total. Any observation of the number of empty structures with no night lights in them in places like Hizma convinces me that the self-proclaimed pop. totals are way too high. Continued later.....

Incredible situation now in EY...

Rabbi Shimon Kessin (Rabbi Mendel's brother) posted a few days ago an incredible shiour at related to Messiah ben Yossef and the two processes that happen throughout history.
I would like to bring a short sum up here because it could bring some help to better understand what's going on

His shiour seems to solve the makhloket if MBY will die (like stated in the Guemara) or if he will survive (like stated by the Ramhal and the Vilna Gaon), and may explain the current situation in EY and in Houts laarets (especially in the USA with Biden, and antisemitism rising in Europe...)

Globally speaking two processes happen in parallel :
1 throughout history the gueoula comes by stages, so : when a Gueoula starts happening : first it starts then it stops, goes back and the situation becomes worse until the next Gueoula (EG: the Balfour declaration is proclaimed, then the British forbid jews to enter EY, then Hitler appears in Germany...).
This reversal IS the equivalent of MBY's death, or rather an atonement, so the Guemarra is right, BUT
2 when the final gueoula comes : MBY will not die, because the many "minideaths" of the gueoula throughout history will have completely atoned for MBY's life.
Like stated by the Ramhal and Vilna Gaon

Rabbi Kessin believes that what happened with "Trump then Biden" is of this kind (process N° 1)
And probably what we are witnessing now - the political death of Bibi -serves this purpose (process N°1 : start then reversal) : so when the final MBY will appear, he will not die (probably because MB David will help him to get rid of Armilous, the prince of the Erev Rav who is supposed to kill MBY)
So, Rabbi Kessin thinks we are now at the final stage of the many processes N°1 (gueoula starts then is reversed), and that when MBY will appear he will succeed and not die)

I hope we all will see this very soon, Behezrat Hashem

Most importantly of all, when 70% of their fellow Arabs are found to be lacking the rudimentary moral qualifications to continue living as a Ger Toshav in Eretz Yisrael, how will Monsour Abbas and any other peaceful Arab who does not support murder to achieve political goals respond to the acceptance of Jewish sovereignty in all of Eretz Yisrael? Will they drop their demand for 2 State solutions because the pretext for such a demand will no longer exist? There will no longer be 4.5 million Arabs between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River because 70% of them lack the moral and halakhic qualifications to remain here as righteous gentiles. So any grievance to request a state befitting their numbers will no longer be valid. This is the major variable of the evolving situation which will determine who can remain as a Ger Toshav. If they cannot accept Jewish sovereignty under these conditions, Mashiach will not permit them to remain. This was always at least in part Rav Meir Kahane's argument, that when push comes to shove, the Muslim Arab residents of the Land STILL have the Din of Canaanites (the 7 nations) even though they are not Baalei Avodah Zarah like the Hittites, nor are most of them sexual perverts like the Hivites. Their connection to the Land psychologically is too great as was the case of the 7 nations, that they would never accept Jewish sovereignty. Truth be told, the jury is still out on that question, at least on Arabs as individuals. Many Rabbanim disagreed with Kahane on this point during his lifetime. For a group of Yishmaelites, most from the lands of Amman, Moab, and Egypt (the ones in Gaza), arguing that they have the Din of Canaanim is not an automatic one.

On another point that Neshama brought up, I believe that it is best to hold by the Torah stringency of the Hazon Ish that all fruits and vegetables whether grown by Arabs or Jews or anyone else have Qedushat Shvi'it in the Shmittah year. Stick with Otzar Beit Din or produce from the Aravah, again from the fertile fields of the Rift Valley south of the line between Arad and Beer Sheva which are in Israel but do not have the Din of Eretz Yisrael.

Plus if I am proven right, this will be a wild and crazy Shmittah year, a year during which only G-d will provide without the customary human intermediaries from whom we have grown accustomed.

I have what may turn out to be a powerful post concerning how definitively we know that we are in the 9 months and how we know that the bending of the Tzadee tsofit in Mantzpach to bring judgement on Mankind began precisely 9 months before this pivotal Shmittah year (with the release of Yehonatan Pollard on the 15th of Tevet and Pence's failure to contest massive American election fraud on 6th of January one week later) Yes, the two events are intricately, spiritually related. Yes, both events are related to the bending of the final letter of tzadee in MaNTzPaKh and adding that letter to the word Yawan(Greece) to get Tzion. And Yes, it explains why the present tzarot began with attempting to evict Arab squatters from four or five Jewish owned properties in the Shimon HaTaddiq neighborhood!

Anyone who wants to discuss my train of thought on this matter while writing my new post can discuss it here. Let us see who can guess.

Good Erev Shabbos. I think it began with the 45. This was so loud and clear.

6/04/2021 6:57 PM  
Blogger Neshama said...

Reb Dov: one week later is 21 Tevet. Is this important?
Shimon HaTzadik: when is his yahrzeit?

Why I said I thought 45 was crucial, because it was so powerful and clearly obviously from Shamayim, while other messages have been very cloaked in ‘nature’. This was very different. I perceive it as feeling like when a plane is descending to a landing, the first descent is felt in the stomach, and so forth, until we hit the ground.

The traditional Yahrzeit of Shimon HaTzaddiq HaKohein zt"l is the 29th of Tishrei.

Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Maybe the 45 refers to the travail of the 2nd half of the Pregnancy which started around Rosh Chodesh Siwan, 2 days after Yom Yerushalayim. The 2nd half of a 9 month pregnancy should last 4 1/2 months. Does that translate into 45 qorbonot?

Yes, it is the final months of labor that are the most intensive. We are entering Tammuz this R”H on Friday, Erev Shabbat.

Just read this on yaak’s blog:
“ As it says in Pirkei deRibbi Eliezer and other Midrashim, the final tzadi - ץ - the last letter in the Alef Bet - is the letter through which the Final Redemption will occur. “
Hop over and read it.

Since the 9 months began and will end with the full moons (15th of the months) not with Rosh Chodesh, the last trimester will begin on the 15th or 16th of Tamuz, not with Rosh Chodesh Tamuz. In short, by the 17th of Tamuz, The last trimester commences.

According to some Kabalists 9th month was in Nisan. I have heard from other sources that it can be extend until month of AV , very appropriate time for Teshuva during Ben Amitsarim. The level that we can achieve Kadosh at the time of 9th Av. For men advisable to say Tikkun Hatson , it is hard but think of eternal light and to be be dvikut with Hashem 24/7 and Geula Shelema be Rachamim this year 5781!

Please, let's not make things worse than they are by lengthening these terrible days with our words, or eliciting them from others. I think our son'im have ruled long enough already! It's more than long enough to expect the end of their rule, and the coming geula, this coming Succoth, as Reb Dov Bear has written here.

I am hoping and praying that, since we lost the taste of La"G baOmer (may it not be forever) and Shavuoth already this year, that we'll also lose the taste of the dreaded 3 Weeks!!! as someone wrote during the mini-war (may it not increase).

It is readily apparent that we must assert ourselves and stop the madness of allowing ourselves to grow our enemies. We cannot do that and grow ourselves too.

Mere self-defense is not enough. They must go.
