Jared and the Prince – Prince Charming and Jewish Charm


[as viewed on DRUDGE]

Where in Jewish History do we have such a comparison?
Who do these personas represent in history?


One year ago, two young princes began to forge a friendship at a lunch meeting in the White House's regal State Dining Room.

A snowstorm had kept away President Donald Trump's scheduled guest that day, German Chancellor Angela Merkel - giving the president and his advisers, including son-in-law Jared Kushner, more time to spend with the visiting son of Saudi King Salman.

Kushner and Prince Mohammed bin Salman, both in their 30s, had met before, but this would be their first formal sit-down since Trump's inauguration, and a bond developed between the two men, according to people familiar with their relationship who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak candidly.

As their countries' chief negotiators on Israeli-Palestinian peace, Kushner and the Saudi prince were both seeking to prove their worth on the international stage. They consulted with one another frequently in private calls over the following months, according to people with knowledge of their communications. Kushner successfully pushed the president to make Saudi Arabia his first foreign visit last spring, against objections from other senior administration officials, and then personally visited Mohammed again last fall in Riyadh, the Saudi capital.

Kushner is now set to play a major role hosting the crown prince as he arrives in Washington Monday to kick off a tour of United States. In addition to official meetings, he is scheduled to attend several dinners with Mohammed, along with other U.S. and Saudi officials.

In courting the Saudi prince, Kushner has displayed an unorthodox approach to diplomacy that has unsettled national security and intelligence officials - relying on personal relationships instead of standard government channels to tackle complex problems, according to multiple people with knowledge of Kushner's role.

"The lack of leaks from or about Mr. Kushner's work - whether as part of the Middle East team, Mexico relations or prison reform - is a testament to the fact that he cares about results and not publicity and that he understands how to keep and share information with those in the Administration who should have it,”

Shabbos HaGadol – Tzav – Message of Nir ben Artzi ENGLISH


Message from Nir Ben Artzi
Parshat Tzav - Shabbos HaGadol
Sunday, 18.3  5778
[emphasis is mine]

The Lord of the Universe, Father in Heaven and in the Earth and of the entire universe, warns the world: No one, no man or country, no spirit, no earth, no fire can disturb the existence of the holy Land of Israel. Anyone who interferes with Israel will receive the 10 plagues, and much more difficult and in a repeat sequence.

The Land of Israel, the State of Israel, is the place of the Jews, pure and holy land, and Jerusalem, the Capital, revives the whole world.

Trump is a world hero. In 1948, the state was established and now, after 70 years, Trump came to the conclusion that Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel, and that the Land of Israel has entered a state of perfection, dignity and power in the world, a spiritual power over the Jewish mind is the strongest in the world, the most powerful technology in the world, the most powerful army in the world and the most powerful economy in the world.

No one can persuade and bring down morale, power and motivation to the Land of Israel and the people of Israel.

Israel is working with the US economically, militarily and politically, and the IDF and the US Army are training together, and the US maintains Israel because Israel is an endless force.

Jews [Israelis-yordim] who live abroad, invest all your money in the Land of Israel and at the same time make an urgent trip to the Land of Israel. Anti-Semitism is going to explode in the most difficult and horrific way, appalling and frightening. If the left in Israel made mistakes, got into trouble, canceled, and fell abroad, there is no justice and no judge, and a Jew who succeeds, the gentiles hurt him and eat him alive. The choice of man, to choose to come and live in the Holy Land.

Every time the leftists talk about the right, slander and gossip - the right makes its way, continues to advance, grow stronger, grow and get more and more seats - and the left is becoming extinct. The Holy One, Blessed be He, is interested in the Holy Land, "Do not touch me in the Holy Land.”

Russia, Putin says 'Let my soul die with the Philistines', like Samson the hero, he does not want a bad name on Russia. Putin speaks in pantomime, only body and face movements. He wants to control the Middle East so that he will have a strong and parallel power vis-a-vis the US He does not think twice, what he does not like is threatening, killing and removing ... Still, they say in Heaven: Nothing will help him. In order to balance, Trump is also very strong and guided from heaven, Russia wants to build military camps and the US is also building military camps in all kinds of places.

Syria will continue to be destroyed. Many people are killed and slaughtered. Come from all over the world to kill the Syrian people. Without their knowledge, they are killing the Syrian people - a process of the Holy One, Blessed is He. The Holy One, Blessed be He, put in their minds how to act.

Iran is more afraid of Israel than any other country, afraid that Israel will blow up atomic facilities and harm Iran. Iran quietly transfers ammunition to Hezbollah and Nasrallah - and the ammunition does not arrive. The Iranian people know the power of Israel.

Hizbullah and Nasrallah fear death from Israel. He takes cannabis and speaks nonsense, out of context. He says that he does not want to fight against Israel, because there are not enough ammunition and missiles, he has no reserves, he has only to defend himself. After all, the IDF does not believe a word of its own, they spend time to arm themselves and move missiles even though the United States protects and preserves the Land of Israel.

The United States, anyone who talks badly about the people of Israel, Trump boycotts him, Trump speaks openly that he is protecting Israel, he is not mistaken, he knows what he is talking about.

Turkey, Erdogan sends his troops, as if he controls his army. The rebels who began to revolutionize, multiply and strengthen. Soon they would wake up and fight him.

In Iran the same, more or less. Advice to the women of Iran: Gather in your masses in all the cities and go all over Iran to make a coup in power. You have the power to do this and also to influence your young men to overthrow the Iranian regime, which wants to bring about a holocaust, to kill and destroy the Iranian people through the atom. Their sword will come in their hearts and their bow will break, and their leaders will kill their people.

Jordan is waiting to remove the heavy burden of the infiltrators, the Syrians, Da'esh and Hamas, the king of Jordan is afraid, the people of Israel are protecting him and peace with him.

In Egypt, Sisi put his soldiers in the Sinai desert to fight against Da'esh, Hamas and the extremists, so that they would not reach Egypt, so that they would not reach the Aswan Dam. If Da'esh arrived in Egypt next to the Aswan Dam, they would blow it up.

Hamas continues to dig tunnels, despite the fact that they have suffered a severe fall. They and Abu Mazen take all the money they get into their pockets. They starve the Palestinians of bread and blame Israel.

Hamas, Palestinians, and Da'esh eat each other, they do not care about the establishment of a Palestinian state, they only care about taking and stealing all the money, and they are fighting for Abu Mazen's will - and he is still alive.

The Israeli left must descend from the tall tree. No Gentile will help you. No country will help you. Keep your honor, do not go to demonstrations, it does nothing. In the end, the Holy One, Blessed be He, decides what will happen, so it's a shame to waste your precious time. It's too bad for you to run for the infiltrators and for the opponents of the people of Israel. The whole world loves the Jews who hold the right and hold the holy land for Jews only. We are all Jews, there is no left and no right. Left and right in one body, in order to establish the Land of Israel.

Continuing disasters in the world, the collapse of buildings, houses will be swallowed up in the ground. Aircraft will explode, trains will fly from the tracks, vehicles, ships, spaceships and satellites - everything is complicated.Earthquakes, floods and storms, winds and fire will continue.

All the bribes, the scammers, the thieves, those living on the backs of others and the conspirators - will all be caught. They will do teshuvah - from Heaven they will make it easier for them.

Europe is conquered by Muslims.

Britain and France are threatened by Putin, the Jews in Europe are pushed in all directions, they will soon be taking their homes and their livelihood.

The infiltrators in Israel must be transferred to the countries where they were born. They have almost a hundred times more land than Israel. They just want to be here, to get in the way.

Iraq wants the Jews. They regret that they were expelled because they know they have an affinity to the Holy One, Blessed be He, and have a blessing.

And now all the countries of the world want to build the embassy in Jerusalem, to taste the blessing of the Jews. All the problems in the Israeli Knesset will not be resolved and no solution will be found until the Creator of the world will crown the Mashiach.

Shout to the Creator to bring Moshiach, so that they would stop all the disputes that cannot be resolved without Moshiach. The whole world is in the midst of complications and conflicts, and the most severe disturbances, until the reign of King Mashiach.

Israel is flourishing and happy. It's so good in Israel - the government is dealing with trivial things, with boredom. Who will deal only with the help and protection of the Holy Land, the Land of Israel.

The Land of Israel is the holiest and most holy place in the world, the Holy Land. The Holy One, Blessed be He, took the people of Israel out of Egypt, from the most impure place in the world, to bring them into the holiest and most holy place in the world.

The Holy One, Blessed be He, wants His Jewish children to celebrate Passover in the Holy Land of Israel, and not in the soil of an unclean strange land. On the contrary, the Holy One, Blessed be He, asks the Jews living outside the Land of Israel to celebrate Passover with the Jews in the Holy Land of Israel. In Israel everything is good.

The month of Nissan will be Blessed. In Nisan, the people of Israel were redeemed and with the help of G–D, we will receive our righteous Mashiach in Nisan! That the Holy One, Blessed be He, will have mercy on His children, who will announce the revelation of the Mashiach. Everyone should plead and pray to the Holy One, Blessed be He, that Mashiach will lead the Mashiach on Pesach. Moshiach acts and works to save the people of Israel, for himself he does not want anything.

The only interest of Moshiach is to redeem the people of Israel and that all will be believers in the Holy One, Blessed is He. Moshiach works at night and saves the people of Israel!

AI – Intuition vs Logic

AI – Intuition vs Logic

Parshas Vayikra

And G–D called to Moshe, and spoke unto him 
out of the tent of meeting, saying . . . (Vayikra 1:1)

[A] face often reveals what a person is feeling inside, it can also conceal it. Sometimes a person does not even know what they are TRULY feeling at the moment, and smile as if everything is normal, when it is not. Or, they do know, but have chosen to hide it from others, giving other people the wrong impression and sometimes resulting in hurtful misunderstandings. An empath picks up the TRUE vibes.

This has also helped me tremendously with my writing, b”H. I write, for the most part, intuitively. I KNOW what can be said, but I FEEL how it SHOULD be said. What I start to write intellectually can make perfect sense. But after writing it, I can feel that it lacks a certain added element to best make the point for the reader. 

Even non-Empaths use gut feelings a lot in life, often with great results. Intuition plays a major role in many professions, and has often saved people a lot of money, and in some cases, their lives. The intellect is great for making calculations and carrying out technical chores in life, but it is intuition that adds the human element to all of it, and which allows people to access higher levels of truth. 

This is why “Artificial Intelligence,” or “AI,” is a problem. As enticing as the idea may be, it is inherently flawed because, quite simply, you cannot mechanize intuition. You can mimic it to some degree, but it cannot be replicated by man, making AI potentially the greatest threat to mankind.

[T]here is a limit to how much I am prepared to allow MECHANIZED things to govern HUMAN life. If human logic—which is what would be used to program AI—alone dictated how to deal with humanity, human logic alone would probably eliminate it. It is only because of DIVINE logic that we are STILL here.

That “little” something extra that makes life so non-automated is alluded to in the “little” Aleph at the end of the first word of this week’s parsha. As discussed many times in the past, the small Aleph at the end of the first word, “vayikra,” alludes to the Aleph of “Adam,” and the soul of man. That’s why the Aleph is missing from the word “kisay” at the end of Parashas Beshallach. Amalek tries to cut it off, transforming the word “vayikra” into the word “vayikar.”

Without the soul’s involvement, life becomes quite mechanical. The physical world of the body is very limited. It seems unlimited, especially when it comes to physical gratification. There are SO many ways to give the body pleasure. A person could live an entire lifetime and never experience every PHYSICAL pleasure there is to enjoy.

Nor would a person want to. How many steaks can you eat at one time or even over the course of a single week? How many sweet deserts can you enjoy before your body says, “Please! No more!” Even people with addictions know that they do not derive pleasure from that to which they are addicted. It just hurts too much not to fill it. 

In any case, without the involvement of the soul, life just becomes too mechanical. Take prayer for example. Though people show up for minyan on a regular basis, they often forget to bring their soul along with them. Oh, it’s there alright. Otherwise the person would not be alive. But it’s not in their prayer, which is why it looks and feels so mechanical. The “vayikar” is there, just not the “vayikra,” with the Aleph, and that makes any service of G–D perfunctory.

How does one bring their soul to prayer, or to anything they do? The most important part of our service to G–D is our hearts. It’s a real shame to go through the motions, actually put the time into a mitzvah, and leave out the most important ingredient of all: kavanah—intention. 

We can take advantage of this special Shabbos to answer the question. This Shabbos is “Parashas HaChodesh,” the fourth of the special Maftirs read before and after Purim. Since it happens to be Rosh Chodesh Nissan this Shabbos as well, it is even MORE appropriate that we read about the mitzvah of Rosh Chodesh where it first showed up, in Parashas Bo.

A Jewish month is called “chodesh,” from the word “chadash,” which means “new,” because the moon renews itself every 29 and some odd days. Every month the Jewish people announce the upcoming new month on the previous Shabbos, and then celebrate its actual arrival on Rosh Chodesh. How many cultures do that, month after month, year after year, millennium after millennium?

The Jewish people do. We do it because it is a reminder to us as well about the importance of constant renewal. It tells us that the nature of people is to get used to things, and then to lose respect for them. So we need to do that which makes the old new on a daily basis. This is a big portion of our service of G–D.

There is even an important mitzvah of developing “chiddushei Torah” on Shabbos, as the week ends and leads to the beginning of a new week. On a day that we retreat from the mundane world and contemplate the true meaning of life, we make a point of revealing new Torah ideas that emerge from within old ones.

There is nothing mundane about Torah. There is nothing habitual about the service of G–D. We may go to the same shul every day, doven in the same minyan each time, but every tefillah is a first. It is built upon all of our previous prayers, but we are different, the world is different, and therefore our prayer should be different as well.

But, and this is important, it doesn’t happen on its own. If people wait for the experience of prayer, or of any mitzvah, to “wow” them, they will wait in vain. Occasionally, as a gift, G–D will inject a mitzvah with something extra to help us, but for the most part, that is OUR avodah, our service of G–D. We are the ones who are supposed to attach the “Aleph” to “vayikar.” We have to find our own personal way to “mechadash”—renew—what is already very familiar to us.

This is not something only “spiritual” people do. It is something people do to become spiritual. Fortunate is the person who knows this, works on it, and already enjoys success. THEY are true servants of G–D, and of themselves, because they will enjoy learning Torah and performing mitzvos, the source of eternal reward in the World-to-Come.

And, as we have said in the past, and will soon say again, b”H, it is this approach to life that is the true source of freedom.

Parashas Vayikra - LEARNING FROM THE “VOV”

By Roy S. Neuberger

This momentous Shabbos ushers in the Month of Miracles. 

We know that our lives are a series of miracles, but we need constant reminders. From the behavior of Am Yisroel in the Midbar we can see that it is possible to experience an earth-shaking miracle and then forget the memory shortly thereafter. 

I know this from my own life. I can experience the most dramatic and powerful simcha, illuminating like a lightning-flash the all-encompassing chessed of the Ribono shel Olam, and then, very quickly, become upset about all the problems I see around me. Why did I forget so quickly the “big picture” I just saw? 

Dovid Hamelech reminds us, “ivdu es Hashem b’simcha … serve Hashem with gladness.” (Tehillim 100) We cannot relate to Hashem unless we are b’simcha. If we realize that all His actions are l’tova, we are filled with simcha, because we understand that every event is good. 

Once a Rosh Yeshiva from Bnai Brak was eating a Shabbos seuda at our home. Somehow it happened – let’s skip the details! – that a tray of salad flipped over on him. I mean … he was covered with salad! Can you imagine the embarrassment! Although he was due to speak right after the seuda and had no other clothing, he minimized the incident, but my wife was in tears. 

Can you see anything good here? What good could come out of this “disaster?” Well, from this crazy incident we became extremely close friends of this Rosh Yeshiva! With him, I visited Rav Shach zt”l, Rabbi Shteinman zt”l, Rav Chaim Shlita”h and numerous other godolim with whom he was close. To this day, when he comes to America, he asks to stay at our home, and he jokes, “Spill more salad! Spill more salad!” 

“Gam zu l’tova!” (Taanis 21a)

This, of course, is a great lesson of Purim. Rabbi Binyomin Forst Shlita”h told me – on Purim – a beautiful vort: Yisro’s name was originally “Yeser.” A “vov” was added. Why a vov, of all letters? Because vov is a connecting letter. Yisro saw what happened in Mitzraim, what happened at Yam Suf and the defeat of Amalek. He connected all these events, and he connected them to the Existence of the Ribono shel Olam. As a result, he connected himself to the Torah!

At the end of Megillas Esther, there is a surprising possuk. “King Achashverosh levied taxes on both the mainland the islands.” (Esther 10:1) Excuse me! Achashverosh had just witnessed some of the most astounding events in history! After all these miracles, what was on Achashvairosh’s mind? Taxes! As Rabbi Forst says, he was nothing but a bureaucrat. No vov was added to his name! He did not connect! 

“The ironsmith makes his tool and … fashions [an idol] with hammers. He crafts it with all his strength. Though he may be hungry and without strength, he drinks no water and grows faint … and he will even make of it a god and prostrate himself …. The woodworker … cuts himself cedar trees…. He burns half in the fire [and] prepares meat to eat …. With the rest he makes a god …. He will bow to it … and say to it, ‘Save me!’ …. They do not know. They do not understand. A coating prevents their eyes from seeing and their hearts from comprehending.” (Yeshiah 44:12; Haftaras Vayikra)

My friends, we have to connect! 

At this miraculous season, we are midway between two cosmic yeshuas, the events of Shushan Habira andYetzias Mitzraim. In Achashvairosh’s kingdom, a powerful rasha threatened “l’hashmid, l’harog ulabed … to destroy, to slay and to exterminate all Jews, young and old, children and women ….” (Megilla 3:13) He could have done it, and he was about to do it, but his adversary, a quiet talmid chacham, prevailed. The rasha was hanged on his own gallows. The talmid chacham became prime minister in his stead and saved his people. 

In Mitzraim, when the Yidden were about to be destroyed, heaven and earth were overturned to save them. The entire civilization collapsed because of its hatred of the Children of Israel. 

In each case, the decree against us stemmed from our assimilation into that powerful foreign culture. In each case, Hashem saved His people just before our annihilation. In each case, the culture that sought to destroy us was turned upside down by the Hand of Hashem. 

This world is turning against us. We are increasingly isolated, increasingly beleaguered, increasingly challenged. We are attacked by Bnai Yishmoel and then attacked by Bnai Esav when we defend ourselves! Is this normal? Why is the world against us? 

Why was Paro’s Kingdom against our ancestors? 
Why was Achashvairosh’s Kingdom against our ancestors? 

The answer is so straightforward. Enemies attack because Hashem in His mercy is saving us from destruction! The world is against us because Hashem is getting ready to liberate us. “When the wicked bloom like grass and all the doers of iniquity blossom, it is to destroy them forever!” (Tehillim 92) But we cannot be liberated from a world to which we are attached! We have to sever our attachment to the world of sheker and attach ourselves to the world of Emes

“Do not be afraid and do not be terrified! Did I not tell you from before? … All who fashion statues are empty and their treasure will not avail….” (Haftaras Vayikra)

The Month of Nissan begins. We have to connect! The world is about to change. “Sing glad song, O Heaven, for what Hashem has done! Call out, O core of the earth! Break out, O mountains, in glad song. O forest and every tree within it, for Hashem will have redeemed Yaakov and He will glorify Himself in Israel!” (ibid)

Perversion of the Torah – Rabbi Nachman Kahana

Perversion of the Torah
by Rabbi Nachman Kahana

Tractate Makot ends with an incident where Rabban Gamliel, R. Elazar ben Azariya, R. Yehoshua and R. Akiva were viewing the devastation on the Temple Mount. The first three rabbis wept while R. Akiva expressed feelings of gladness. When asked to explain, R, Akiva quoted from the prophets that after the destruction will come eternal peace to the holy city. The rabbis exclaimed, “R. Akiva you have comforted us, you have comforted us”.

I underwent a similar experience where several of my rabbinic colleagues were very agitated in the face of a particular incident. I had the opportunity to mitigate their concerns, basing my words on a chapter of the prophets.

We were all delighted to learn that President Trump had appointed two religious Jewish attorneys to highly sensitive positions – Mr. Friedman as ambassador to Israel and Mr. Greenblatt as the President’s special envoy to the Middle East. When their pictures appeared, we felt a sense of nachas (pride) to see that these gentlemen were wearing very visible kippot. So now there are two visibly religious Jews close to the President’s “ear”.

However, the kippot suddenly disappeared and were no longer to be seen when Messrs. Friedman and Greenblatt entered their respective positions.

Many in my rabbinical circle of friends and others felt insulted by their obvious act of publicly repressing their Jewishness. So now we have two former highly visible religious Jews presently with bare heads.

When my friends aired their negative feelings, a sense of relief came over me, based on last Shabbat’s haftara from Yechezkel 36:

16 And the word of the Lord came to me:
17 “Son of man, when the people of Israel were living in their own land, they defiled it by their conduct and their actions…
18 So I poured out my wrath on them because they had shed blood in the land and because they had defiled it with their idols. 19 I dispersed them among the nations, and they were scattered through the countries; I judged them according to their conduct and their actions. 20 And wherever they went among the nations they profaned My holy name, for it was said of them, ‘These are the Lord’s people, and yet they had to leave His land." 21 I had concern for My holy name, which the people of Israel profaned among the nations where they had gone. 22 “Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of My holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone’.”
The prophet is saying that our forced exile, which resulted from our negation of the Torah, profaned not only ourselves as HaShem’s chosen people but even more so profaned His Holy Name. The exile demonstrated that His awesome and infinite presence had had little influence on us. Furthermore, our more-than 100-generation presence in galut added a dimension to our blasphemous and irreverent conduct by continually showing our gentile neighbors and hosts how we were rebelling against the Almighty.

From the point of view of the Prophet Yechezkel, the sight of a Jew driving his car on Shabbat down 13th Avenue in Boro Park is less a sacrilege of the Holy Name than a Jew on Shabbat with his tallit over his head walking with his 10 “payoted” (sidelocks) sons to the rebbe’s shtiebel, because the Jewishness of the chassid is more visible than the Jew in the car.

Messrs. Freidman and Greenblatt have performed a favorable act by removing their kippot and looking less Jewish. There is less desecration of the Holy Name by observant Jews who continue to live in galut, when the gates of our land are open to every Jew.

The Prophet Yechezkel, who lived through the destruction of the First Temple and the exile to Babylon, felt the intensity of the desecration when the gentiles perceived that God had erred in His choice of the Jews as His chosen people.

The more visible Jews are in the galut – promoting their Jewishness, building larger and more magnificent religious structures and placing kosher labels on a plethora of previously-non-kosher products – the greater the desecration of the Holy Name, especially when the gates to the holy land are open to receive Rachel’s children.

Let me put it simply. What would my six-year-old granddaughter’s response be to the question regarding where the truth of the Torah lies, assuming that all the rabbis, grand rabbis and poskim residing in the galut today were on one side of the scale and the words of the Prophet Yechezkel on the opposite side? She would look at me incredulous and say, “Saba ma kara lecha? (Grandfather, what’s with you?). You know that the words of the Prophet are the words of HaShem!”

The Prophet attacks the presence of Jews in the galut as a desecration of HaShem’s Holy Name (a chillul HaShem), implying that our presence here in Eretz Yisrael is a sanctification of His Holy Name (kiddush HaShem). However, we are witnessing a situation where many Haredi elements have brought the galut way of life here to Eretz Yisrael and with it the elements of chillul HaShem that existed there. The outstanding example is the attitude of certain segments in the Haredi community to army service.

After all the claims are made, their position has more to do with an anti-Medinat Yisrael attitude than loving Torah study. Where one mother waits for her son to come home every night to enjoy her chicken soup, while another mother worries over her son at the border protecting the other boy’s right to eat chicken soup. These Hareidim view the Jewish State as they did the governments of Poland, the Ukraine and Russia. In the eyes and words of the paranoiac Haredi leadership, military service is the Israeli government’s secret policy of secularizing the Haredi youth.

In addition, the pre-Shoah divisiveness of religious life that existed in the galut has been imported here. The examples abound: The split between the Lithuanian and Chasidic communities, and the splits within their own communities; the refusal of Haredim to incorporate Sephardic children into their schools; the use of Yiddish as their natural way of speech rather than Hebrew; the refusal to realize that here everything is different when we have to establish and maintain our own state, and the unsustainable situation where tens of thousands of their children are denied the basic elements of education. It is predicted that by 2030, the majority of school-age children in the country will be comprised of Haredim and Arabs, with disastrous implications.

A Jew in the galut is a chillul HaShem, but galut implanted in Eretz Yisrael is a perversion of Torah and an even more disastrous chillul HaShem.

Shabbat Shalom,

Parashat Vayikra Video in IVRIT

All Redemption is Pure

Purified by this bloody one on the mezuzot and the beacon

When we left Egypt, God had to purify us of the gates of impurity we were in Egypt, and he did so by means of the blood of the circumcision that removed the foreskin from all of Israel. Even the foreskin, which can speak, both the foreskin of meat and the foreskin of the heart. As it is stated: "And you shall put your foot on your head, and you shall not oppress them." (Deuteronomy 10:16).

Israel also cleansed this blood of Passover on the doorpost with the Association of Azov (Shemot 12:22). In the midrash (Shemot Rabbah 17a), the Sages compared this shift to the purification of the mazveh to the purity of the leper, as it is stated: "And the priest commanded, and took the water for two days, the life of Teroroth and the tree of the earth, and the second of the seed and the seed." By Azov: "And he took a dove, and carried a watering man in the water, and sprinkled it upon the tent" (Bamidbar 19:15).

This is probably the reason why there is no need to hallucinate the mezuzot and the mikveh every Pesach, even though it is written in the parasha "And keep this word for you and your son forever." And the reason is that we are not actually going out of the country's nine hundred gates of impurity, and we do not need that great purification.

Purification from exile

It is true that at the exit from the last exile, we are once again required to purify ourselves of the impurity of the land of nations and their spiritual malfunctions. In this exodus, too, we are purified by the word of God, as stated in Deuteronomy: "And the word of the Lord your God is to your heart and heart to love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul for your life" (Deut.

In this redemption, we also purify this pure water that God contains. As stated in the Book of Ezekiel "And I will bring you down to the waters of the tahurim, and purify you of all your possessions, and all your possessions will overtake you" (Ezekiel 25:25). The purification that follows is the renewal: "And I gave you a new heart and a new spirit in your midst, and I cut off the heart of the stone from your chain, and I gave you the heart of the flesh" (Ezekiel 32:26).

Purification from bad culture

This purity that God cleanses us is not only a physical impurity, but also a spiritual and conceptual impurity. For He says to us: "All your possessions and all your possessions shall I make you awake." Even from the impurity of idolatry that defiles physical bodily impurity in touch and burden (Shabbat 13: 1). And the purification from the impurity of Egypt was also a spiritual impurity, which the Torah warns of several times.

Exodus from Egyptian culture - between man and his fellow

Every widow, orphan without complaint (?)

One of the impurities connected to Egypt and the Torah that warns us of it is a culture of exploitation and enslavement. For Egypt was a house of bondage. And when the Torah wants to warn us to observe the mitzvot between man and his fellow, it reminds us of the exodus from Egypt.

The first thing that the Torah commands after Matan Torah is to release slaves in the seventh year, and not to torment a stranger, an orphan and a widow. "And you shall not be rich, nor shall you be oppressed, for the gerillas shall dwell in the land of Egypt: all shall be, and ye shall not be afflicted" (Exodus 22:20). The Torah repeats in the same parasha "And you shall not be oppressed, and you shall know the soul of the stranger, that you shall be raised in the land of Egypt" (Exodus 23: 9).

You can not give it to yourself or to you

The same applies to the prohibition of interest: "At Csfc not Ttn to him Bnsc and Bmrbit not Ttn Aclc: I am the Lord your Gd Asr Hotzati Atcm land of of Egypt give Lcm At the land of Canaan Lhiot Lcm Lalhim" (Leviticus such a term). To tell you that when you take interest from poor poor people who have nothing to eat, you repeat something of the evil of Egypt.

Do not judge the judge by mistake or by saying

Thus the Torah mentions the exodus from Egypt in relation to the prohibition against deceit in size and weight. "Not Taso injustice Bmsft Bmdh Bmskl and Bmsorh: Mazni justice Abni justice Aift justice and righteousness Ihih Lcm Hin I am the Lord your Gd Asr Hotzati Atcm land of of Egypt" (Leviticus her). In this fraud the seller cheats every buyer and buys every day, and he has no way of repenting, who does not know who will return. Here, too, the Torah reminds us of Egypt, who tortured and harassed so much that they could not repair, and God hardened their hearts and rejected them to destruction.

And you shall remember you were a slave in Egypt

The Deuteronomy mentions a number of prohibitions that are not intended to oppress the stranger, the orphan and the widow. "You shall not hire me, and I will buy you from your brother, or from your garden, which is in thy land." And although it is forbidden to oppress rich people, the Torah speaks in the present. She also ordered the return of a pledge to the poor. Pay him a salary a day. "On the day he will give his wages, and the sun shall not come upon him, for I will be with him, and to him he shall lift up his soul."

She also commanded not to punish fathers for children: "Do not father a father with sons and sons shall not obey the father of a man in his sin." Do not tilt the sentence of the weak: "You shall not judge a stranger and you shall not betray the garment of a widow." Although it is also forbidden to divert the judgment of the rich. All of them are stamped in the law. "And you shall remember that I was working in Egypt, and the Lord your God gave you from there on the basis of you, so that I may make you do this thing" (Deuteronomy 24:18). You were there and felt what it was to be utilized, do not do it to others.

To be orphaned and to be a llama

The Torah also mentions the lessons learned from the Exodus from Egypt. Thus the Torah mentions the mitzvah of oblivion. That Omar forgets in the field he will not return to take him, but will leave us to the poor: "For you shall cut your harvest in your land, and you shall forget the land in the field, and you shall not return to bring it to the land, and to the lamina shall be for you.

[Google was unable to translate this portion: [. . .] "Yes it is a mitzvah to leave olives and grapes in the vineyard for the poor:” . . .  – so this portion was omitted, you can listen to the Ivrit]

Exodus from Egypt - Faith in the Messianic Age

Just as I want you to believe in me that I took you out so I want you to believe in me that I will gather you and save you

Therefore, God placed the commandments of faith in the Exodus from Egypt: "I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt from the house of servants" (Exodus 20: 2), God tells us: I am not found only in the higher worlds; (4:39): "And you know today, and dwell in your heart, for the Lord is the God in heaven above, and on the earth, from there is no more."

The SA says that in this mitzva we learned to believe that God always leads the world. From here we learned to expect salvation. And so he wrote: "And as for the wicked, since He is speaking, I am the Most High, just as I want you to believe in me that I took you out so I want you to believe in me that I am the Lord your Gd and I will gather you and save you. The nations, etc. "(CC Mitzvah A).

To remember the day you left Egypt all the days of your life.

According to the deputy commander, it is possible to understand more deeply what the Gemara (Berakhot 21a) says that "truth and stability" is more important than reading the Shema: Rav Yehudah said, "If you read the Shema, do not read it." The Gemara explains that "true and stable" is a duty from the Torah because it mentions the exodus from Egypt, and the Torah said, "For the sake of remembering the day that you departed from the land of Egypt all the days of your life," even on the day And at night.

On the other hand, in the opinion of a rabbi there is no obligation to recite Shema every day, and what is said in Parashat Shema and Deuteronomy Bam is said about the words of Torah and not about Shema itself. It is true that the halachah is not in his opinion, and the Shema should be recited even if it is doubtful whether he recited it or not (Shulchan Arukh Orach Chaim 47).

You are the first and you are the last one. And we do not have a king and a Savior

In the Tosafot there he asked: If the whole attribute of "true and stable" is that it is reminiscent of the exodus from Egypt, then in the parasha of Tzitzit is mentioned the Exodus from Egypt, then what is the great virtue of "true and stable"?

It is possible to rationalize according to Rashi, who explained in Gemara (Berachot 12) the virtue of "true and stable." It is said there: "Rabba bar Chinna said: He explained his name, saying that these blessings after the Shema are learned from the Exodus from Egypt in the belief in the future redemption. "We expect him to keep us his promise and his faith to redeem us immediately from kings and tyrants immediately and to our soul alive, and to guide us on the stages of our enemies, all these miracles are always frequent."

Yes, we say in the morning that the Lord who redeemed us in the past will redeem us in the future. "The truth of the God of eternity Mlcno. Cliff Jacob defender Isano. Ldor and compartment Hoa Kim and Smo Kim and Csao okay and Mlcoto and Amonto forever Kimt, and Dbrio Hiim and Kimim and Namnim and Nhmdim forever and Laolmi Aolmim".

Yes, in the first half of the "Emet V'atziv" blessing, we recall that the Lord who redeemed us in the past will redeem us in the future. "Our God, our God, our Father, our God, our God, our God." Because you are "a mighty king for a great quarrel for fathers and sons." And those who redeemed the former will redeem the latter. "You are the first and you are the last one.

This blessing is not allowed to leave even one moment of the first blessing of YH, which also speaks of our redemption from the redemption of our forefathers, that you are "our God and the God of our forefathers." May we merit to see our redemption and redeem our souls soon, Amen and Amen.

Martial Diplomacy vs Democratic Diplomacy

Martial Diplomacy vs Democratic Diplomacy
by Prof. Paul Eidelberg

The basic difference: Martial diplomacy regards negotiation between adversary states as a form of warfare by other means, democratic diplomacy regards negotiation between adversaries as a means of conciliation leading to lasting agreement and peace.

Diplomacy is not an ideologically neutral affair. How and why states negotiate – their methods and objectives – depend mainly on their principles of government. The diplomacy of a government based on consent – on freedom of discussion, pluralism and compromise – will differ profoundly from the diplomacy of a government based on coercion and propaganda.

First, a fundamental distinction between martial and democratic diplomacy is necessary. Whereas martial diplomacy regards negotiation between adversary states as a form of warfare pursued by other means, democratic diplomacy regards negotiation between adversaries as a means of conciliation requiring mutual concessions leading to lasting agreement and peace.

The methods of martial diplomacy resemble a military campaign or a series of maneuvers the ultimate goal of which is victory over the enemy if not his complete destruction. The purpose of negotiation is to outflank your enemy, to weaken him by all manner of attacks. If the opponent is a democracy, attempts will be made to manipulate public opinion through the media, the object being to undermine popular support for the government’s negotiating position. Efforts will also be made to divide the government itself by subtle appeals to political factions and opposition leaders. And of course there will be attempts to drive a wedge between the government and its allies.

The principle is divide and conquer.

The tactics of martial diplomacy against democracies are also military in character.

First of all there is the use of surprise or shock diplomacy. Its purpose is to demonstrate strength, to cause concern and confusion and thereby increase the opportunity for direct and indirect pressure. An example took place in Cairo in 1995 before the entire world. Appearing on television with Israeli, American, and Egyptian leaders and diplomats for the purpose of signing the second Israel-PLO Agreement, Yasir Arafat suddenly refused to do so! This bold maneuver left Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin with the choice of calling the televised spectacle off or making additional territorial concessions to the cunning terrorist. Rabin, lacking Arafat’s nerves, yielded.

Another tactic of martial diplomacy is the use of indirect force to compel concessions. Syrian President Hafez al-Assad employed terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah to attack Israel’s northern frontier as a “bargaining chip” on the Golan Heights negotiating table. (This also applies to the PLO and its collusion with Hamas to squeeze concessions from pliant Israeli governments.)

Then there is the extensive use of deception. Negotiating demands are couched in moralistic and democratic language such as “peace” and “self-determination.” To spread the glad tidings of peace to the unwary, or to promote divisions in the ranks of the enemy, flattering interviews are granted to susceptible journalists and other opinion-makers. Statements are issued to promote goodwill and a sense of security before turning to more aggressive offensives, such as propaganda campaigns designed to alienate the enemy’s allies. Some of these statements are so palpably mendacious as to create doubt as to their very mendacity or at least their malevolence.

While martial diplomacy attempts to disarm the adversary through guile and professions of peace, these attempts are punctuated by veiled or less-than-veiled threats of war. This use of cunning and intimidation by the martial school of diplomacy reflects the basic character of dictatorial regimes. Obviously, under such a system of negotiation, trust, fair-dealing and conciliation are not easy. A concession made, a treaty concluded, is apt to be regarded not as a final settlement of a conflict, but evidence of weakness and retreat, an advantage which must soon be exploited in preparation of further advances and triumphs.

Here martial diplomacy is aided by the fact that democracies, more than other kinds of regimes, ardently desire peace and, even in the absence of pressure, will make gratuitous concessions to the extent of taking “risks for peace.” Indeed, the very principle of compromise intrinsic to democracies renders them more yielding than dictatorships. Knowing this, the leader of a military regime – and many civilian dictatorships are actually animated by military principles – will launch his diplomatic campaign from a negotiating position involving impossible demands from which he will hardly deviate. For example, Syrian dictator Assad insisted that Israel withdraw entirely from the Golan Heights before he would even consider signing a peace treaty!

Sophisticated politicians and political scientists often think that merely for adversaries to meet and talk to each other is a positive step toward peace, when, as history has shown, and as martial diplomacy intends, it may only be a lull before the storm.

Thus, when negotiating with a democracy, the ruler of a dictatorship will try to force his opponent into piecemeal surrender or into a militarily indefensible position. The morality of martial diplomacy is quite simple: “What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine – or at least negotiable.”

 In contrast, democratic diplomacy is based on the assumption that compromise with one’s rival is generally more profitable than his total destruction. Negotiation is not merely a phase in a death-struggle, but an attempt to reach some durable and mutually satisfying agreement. The means used are not military tactics but the give and take of civilian or commercial intercourse. The problem is to find some middle point between two negotiating positions which, when discovered, will reconcile their conflicting interests. And to find that middle point, all that is required is goodwill, frank discussion and compromise.

Not only naรฏve journalists but even sophisticated politicians and political scientists often think that merely for adversaries to meet and talk to each other is a positive step toward peace, when, as history has shown, and as martial diplomacy intends, it may only be a lull before the storm.

Because democracies are based on discussion, the general tendency of democratic diplomacy is to overestimate the ability of reason to produce confidence and lasting agreement. This tendency of democratic diplomacy results in a number of errors when confronted by martial diplomacy.

First, there is the error of making gratuitous concessions, sometimes as gestures of goodwill. The hope is for reciprocity, hardly to be expected, however, from dictatorial regimes. As Henry Kissinger has written, anyone succeeding in the leadership struggles of such regimes “must be single minded, unemotional, dedicated, and, above all, motivated by enormous desire for power… It is unlikely that their attitude toward the outside world is more benign than toward their own colleagues.”

The inherent asymmetry between democratic and dictatorial regimes renders reciprocity dubious, and, in the case of Israel, virtually impossible. For a democracy to yield territory, something tangible and irreversible, for nothing more substantial than a dictator’s written and revocable promise of peace, is a curious quid pro quo. Yet this defines the relation between Israel and the Palestine Authority, itself a military dictatorship which has educated a generation of Arab children to hate Jews and emulate suicide bombers.

The second error of democratic diplomacy is the prejudice that international conflict is caused primarily by lack of mutual understanding – the supposed root of mutual fear and suspicion. The assumption, so typical of the liberal democratic mind, is that men are by nature benevolent, and that through discussion they will discover that what they have in common is more important than their differences.

Third, guided by that liberal prejudice, the democratic school of diplomacy tends to minimize conflicting ways of life or ideologies. In his July 1996 address before a joint session of Congress, then Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gratuitously denied any “clash of civilizations” between Israel and her Arab-Islamic neighbors. Such is the influence of democracy on the intellect that even political scientists tend to think that ideological conflicts can be overcome by “confidence building” measures, such as cultural exchange and economic relations.

Given only mutual tolerance and material prosperity, war can be made a thing of the past. Such sentimental materialism is characteristic of bourgeois as well as socialist democracies preoccupied as they are with enjoyment of the present. Thus, when Shimon Peres said “We live in a world where markets are more important than countries,” he was suggesting that national borders or wars fought over territory are things of the past.

Unfortunately, history has little significance for democratic societies, whose politicians and diplomats are animated by election-oriented and short-term pragmatism. This Now mentality renders democrats impatient for results, and dictators know how to exploit this impatience.

They know that democratic leaders have a personal political interest in the appearance of successful negotiations. They can violate agreements confident that a democratic prime minister will be reluctant to admit any failure in his own diplomatic achievements. Indeed, instead of condemning such violations, democratic leaders may not only minimize but sometimes defend them.

While Palestinian chief Mahmoud Abbas praises suicide bombers as “holy martyrs,” democratic elites explain such barbarism as the result of Israel’s alleged occupation of Arab land and of poverty – even though Arab terrorism preceded Israel’s repossession of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza, and even though Arab poverty is a direct result of the kleptocracy of the Palestinian Authority.

Last, and perhaps the most serious error and weakness of democratic diplomacy, is that it makes too sharp a distinction between peace and war; that is, it fails to take seriously the fact that for martial diplomacy peace is war pursued by other means.

Stated another way, to men of goodwill, unrelenting malevolence is incomprehensible!

The phenomenon of stone throwing at vehicles and buses on the Negev and the South Road by Bedouin is not a new phenomenon, but it seems that in recent weeks there has been an increase in reports of such incidents.

On Sunday, police reported that there were various reports that Bedouin youths were throwing stones at a vehicle on Route 406, which leads to Be'er Sheva. The reports indicate that a group of youths are standing near the Goral intersection and the youths are stoning passing vehicles.

Rabbi Israel Meir Lau - “A rabbi must distinguish between the glory of G-d and his own dignity"

Rabbi Israel Meir Lau

Speaking on Monday at the annual conference of the Rabbinical Center of Europe being held in Romania, former Chief Rabbi of Israel and of Tel Aviv, Rabbi Israel Meir Lau said that "a rabbi must distinguish between the glory of G-d and his own dignity."

Rabbi Lau spoke about the state of Jewry today, saying that "today a Rabbi must act on three levels, as the Rebbe of Lubavitch told me in a conversation with him 44 years ago. The Rebbe said to me, 'I don't want to correct your use of the concept "Outreach to those afar" because I don't know who's afar, only G-d knows. I prefer to use the term "bringing Jews closer".'"

Rabbi Lau added, "In my opinion, it's forbidden to abandon one Jew. Rabbis must work with three circles: the first circle is made up of those who observe the Torah and mitzvot and expect him to be a posek, a halakhic decisor. The second circle consists of traditional Jews and the rabbi's mission is to bring them into the first circle. The third circle includes Jews who have no Jewish identity and perhaps a mezuzah on the door of their home, though it's not certain there's a parchment in the mezuzah case. A rabbi should visit every sick person in his community who is ill for more than three days and visit any congregant in hospital. There's no doubt that such an act will move people from the third circle to the second and bring them closer to Judaism."

He attacked opponents of the Chief Rabbinate and implicitly criticized the Tzohar rabbis, who recently announced their own kashrut certification. "We are students of Hillel (the more tolerant Talmudic scholar whose contra was the stringent Shammai, ed.) and we will do not need to be taught that halakha goes according to Beit Hillel (a Talmudic dictum, excepting certain special cases, ed.). We will not be taught either in the street or in the media. There is also a group of rabbis who call themselves 'Rabbis of Beit Hillel," intimating that we are Rabbis of Beit Shammai".

"Today there is a new word, 'religionization', that is a buzzword, a mantra used with the word 'incitement'. To turn a Jew into a observant Jew [to these people] is religionization, akin to incitement. Incite him against what? Not to make compromises in keeping the Torah and not to perform only a third or a quarter. To all those who tell us to make 'corrections' in halakha or leniencies in halakha, I say - You come to change a work that you didn't create? That's vandalism. This is barbarity.

"You are asking the rabbi to 'correct' the Torah because we're in the 20th century? Change is heresy when applied to a basic Torah commandment from Sinai. The rabbis who speak today about making Judaism accessible and bringing halakha closer to the people are against Hillel ... Hillel spoke about brining the people close to Torah and not bringing the Torah close to them," said Rabbi Lau.

He concluded, "I appeal to all rabbis to love your communities. The role of the rabbi is to love peace, pursue peace, love people, and bring them closer to the Torah. That's the Rabbinate in the past, present, and future.”

Parshat Vayikra – Message of Nir ben Artzi 11.3.18 ENGLISH

*Message from Nir Ben Artzi
Parashat Vayikra
Sunday, March 11  5778

Father in Heaven, King of the Kings, the Holy One, Blessed be He, in this difficult time that the earth and people travel on earth, its purpose is to shock, shake and awaken the whole world so that they will understand and know that the world is about to change. Grace and truth, peace to the world and eternal life for Jews who live in the Land of Israel, so that everyone will know what the power of the Creator and the power of the Land of Israel.

The whole world is in conflict and confused and there is no remedy. Know that there is something special in the Land of Israel that comes to save the world. The Creator of the Universe works and works through the Land of Israel. The whole world trembling and anxious, at sea, on land and in the air. The world is in chaos and everyone sees the miracles and wonders that the Creator of the Universe does in the Holy Land of Israel.

North Korea and the United States have come down from the high tree and will have to meet, the Holy One, Blessed be He, said, 'There will be no flood,' meaning that it will not destroy the world.

Most countries in the world want to transfer the embassy to Jerusalem. They waited for the United States to pass and they would run one after the other to transfer the embassy to Jerusalem in order to receive sanctity and forces from Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, from the holiest place in the world, so that they would have a blessing from Jerusalem to their countries. Israel and Mashiach working for Holy One, Bblessed be He!

Holy Land, as opposed to the world, is the best place in the world. There will be no earthquakes, no floods, no eruptions of volcanoes, no harsh winds, everything is good in Israel. The economy is good, the weather is good, the Jews are good and yet you are very careful for your soul. The Holy One, Blessed be He, says to all the Jews of Am Israel, 'Let me do the work quietly, cleanse the entire nation of Israel and all the world.'

The government of Israel, the Knesset members and the ministers, stop the urgent need to speak loshon hora, this is hatred of free, this is the custom of the gentiles. The gentiles laugh at you and say in their hearts: 'These are the smartest Jews in the world, the smartest in the world, the best technology, the best scientists, the best army in the world and behave like the gentiles, slander and hatred'.

In spite of everything, Hakadosh Baruch Hu informs everyone that cleanliness and purification is done. There is no ordinary king of Israel, no mayor, no prime minister, and nothing. Everyone is waiting to receive Mashiach in public. The Holy One, Blessed be He, sees every detail - to choose the right and straight path.

Israel's borders are protected and guarded, the IDF is guarded and alert, the Holy One, Blessed be He, protects Israel's borders from heaven, and the IDF will make efforts.

Syria is being wiped out. This is a death trap for all the countries that come to fight there, except for the Holy and Pure Land of Israel. There is cruelty in Syria, there are difficult clans, killing each other, there is no faith in anyone, no faith among brothers, all day killing.

The US and Russia are training in Syria, and Putin wants to rule the world and show the world that he is in control, and every action that Putin does in Syria is coordinated with the State of Israel and the IDF. Putin loves the Jews who live in Israel, loves wise and intelligent people, with confidence and courage.

Iraq is dead, destroyed and erased, there is no life.

Turkey entered the mud and the bubble(?). Erdogan wants to get rid of Da'esh and Da'esh does not give up. Erdogan is afraid that one day Da'esh will kill him.

In Iran, every citizen who speaks against the regime is gone. Do not worry, they will have a revolution slowly. Good advice to the citizens of Iran: We must gather, and organize millions of people to go out in mass in all of Iran. In this way they will win big and overthrow the regime that wants to bring destruction to Iran.

Egypt, Sisi cleaning the desert of Sinai. Large forces are cleaning up Da'esh, Hamas and the various extremists in the Sinai, so that they will not come from the Sinai Desert to Sisi's residence, and Sisi is wise to continue with the Jews.

Hamas continues to dig tunnels, does not give up. He does not care about the citizens of Gaza, stealing all the money from them and starving them. Those who enjoy the absence of Hamas enjoy it. Those who do not, with Hamas, eat sand.

Abu Mazen is going to leave the world, fighting for his place.

In East Jerusalem you have to be careful. The goal of some Arabs with Israeli identity cards is to hurt and kill.

Lebanon wants peace with Israel. They hate Nasrallah and Hezbollah.

Hezbollah and Nasrallah are in a dead end, do not know what to do, can not get weapons and ammunition from Iran.

Jordan is a good friend of Israel(?), meanwhile quietly, waiting for a Palestinian state. Living in illusions - there will be no Palestinian state, because the Palestinians want war, not peace.

The infiltrators from Africa - Africa is falling apart, becoming ashes and all immigrants, 'new immigrants' to Europe turn it from the glory of the world into the ashes of the world. They come from Africa, Syria, the Gaza Strip, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan and Turkey - filling Europe with Muslims.

Jews who live in Europe, the Holy One, Blessed be He, offers them "do not try the Holy One, Blessed be He, to escape from Europe immediately."

Jews must not assimilate, those who were assimilated – convert immediately.

Parents - Keep your girls and boys from assimilation, drugs and gambling. It is sad for them.

Jews who live with non-Jews, the soul left them, joy left them and they are trapped within themselves in depression and sadness.

The Land of Israel is the holiest and most holy place in the world, the Holy Land. The Holy One, Blessed be He, took the people of Israel out of Egypt, from the most impure place in the world, to bring them into the holiest and most holy place in the world. The Holy One, Blessed be He, wants His Jewish children to celebrate Passover in the Holy Land of Israel, and not on a land of impurity. On the contrary, the Holy One, Blessed be He, asks the Jews living outside the Land of Israel to celebrate Passover with the Jews in the Holy Land of Israel.

All the nations in the world know that everything that happens in the world is the Creator of the world. Do not worry about Israel, the Mashiach is close and soon going out in public! All the righteous in the heavens pray to the Creator to influence the Rabbis in Israel and the righteous women who will influence their husbands to talk about the vision of whom the Holy One, Blessed be He, voted to be the Mashiach, the man of God whom the Holy One, Blessed be He, chose for the Mashiach.

The Holy One, Blessed be He, looks from heaven and sees people who are procrastinating and do not ask for Mashiach, not all of them. Through righteous women they were redeemed from Israel and even now, in the last redemption. Women encourage your husbands to go out and publish the vision that the Holy One, Blessed be He, brought them in the dream, in order to know who he had chosen, whom the Holy One, blessed be He, had pointed out to be a man of Gd, Mashiah his servant.

Messiah is a leader, working at night according to the instructions of the Holy One, blessed be He, on a regular day of work. The largest activities start from sunrise to sunrise. Moshiach works at night, and the people of Israel receive tremendous powers from the Messiah.

The Holy One, Blessed be He, loves the Mashiach very much! Mashiach blesses the people of Israel, prays for the people of Israel, and the Holy One, Blessed be He, hears and fulfills all the requests of the Mashiach, King of Israel!
