LAKEWOOD: Doll With Knife Through Its Head Found Near Jewish School

A doll pinned to a tree with a knife going through its head was discovered near a Jewish school in Lakewood on Monday.

TLS first reported the discovery at around 9:00 AM, located in the wooded area off Swarthmore Avenue, near the Toras Menachem elementary boys school. The stuffed girl rag doll had a butcher knife stuck into its head. A second knife was stuck in the tree. Photo and article:  yeshivaworldnews


I’m afraid the Pittsburgh Shooting is going to bring the insane anti-semites out of their hiding places.

A WAKE UP CALL TO AMERICAN JEWS – The Tragedy in Pittsburgh

The Tragedy in Pittsburgh

Before I listen to Rabbi Mizrachi, I read elsewhere:
Question?  Was this a messianic Christian congregation?
Does this support the above? "Jewish GOP Candidate Invites Messianic Clergy to Eulogize Pittsburgh Victims at Pence Rally" (jewishpress)
Why is so much written about this incident contradictory and confusing?
Is Pittsburgh to be compared to SF and TA?
Is this the message?

I just received an email containing the following comment:

The family from Psagot that was wiped out, all killed in that car accident ...... the driver of the car that hit them admitted that he was involved with his cellphone while driving & crossed into the opposing lane right smack into their car!

While he claims he is so shocked that he will never drive again - that won't bring those 8 nefashot back to life & won't sooth the shattered hearts of their relatives & close friends.

People PLEASE do NOT handle your cellphones while driving!

The Future Of The World And Israel – Spotlight Pittsburgh

What Happened in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Shabbos Parshas Vayera

THIS COULD BE FAKE NEWS  NOT FAKE In the same Parsha of Vayera, that Yitzchak is conceived, born, had a Bris and was weaned, on our holy Shabbos, in a conservative house of worship, two men were celebrating their new male twins in a ceremony the antithesis of Avraham Avinu’s Bris. And in the same parsha is Sodom and Gomorroh
[hat tip to two comments on endofdays blog of Reb Dov bar Leib]

The Future Of The World And Israel

This shiur was recorded November 2016, and it is so relevant and should enter your heart.

[ME: Unfortunately, the world is mentally, politically and culturally confused, and this includes many, many people who claim to be Jewish. It so reminds me of Sodom and Gomorroh, the Generation of the Flood, and Dor HaFlagah all together. Woe is me, what will be? I just read an article that was unreal, but true: "Two mothers in Dallas, Texas were able to both carry their baby using a new method of In Vetro Fertilization. USA TODAY] AND THIS IS NOT FAKE NEWS

On second thought, the above report may not be fake. It seems there is a lot going on in Pittsburgh than we know about. Check this out: Delta Foundation. Pittsburgh May the center for a lot of “Liberalism” and “Progressivism”. This calls for further investigation. After all, as Reb Dov pointed out, this is where the Pittsburgh Platform was formulated in 1909, and again in the 1937 Columbus Platform. Also check this: article still appears on this website, Synagogue Shooting Occurred During Bris for Gay Couple's Twins, BY Daniel Reynolds, October 28 2018 12:50 PM EDT of Advocate. Why did Hashem call our attention to PITTSBURGH?

It appears in this photo, that makeshift white Jewish stars, containing red hearts with names of the Pittsburgh victims, are placed on what seem to be ‘crosses’?  Another gross anomaly.

Pittsburgh Mother, Children Thank Police in wake of Synagogue Shooting

Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The Democratic Socialists of America IMPORTANT UPDATE

BD”E on the tragic slaughter of Jewish neshomas in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, who is running for Senator Bob Corker’s Senate seat next month, held a campaign event in Nashville Sunday evening featuring Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina). During the campaign event, a moment of silence was observed in honor of the Pittsburgh shooting victims.

“Let’s take a moment and remember those that lost their lives in Pittsburgh and express our gratitude for the law enforcement who responded so beautifully,” said Blackburn. “A moment of silence.”

Within seconds, 
a protester shouted out “Marsha Blackburn is a white supremacist.”

A group of left-wing activists, ... interrupted the moment of silence, using the momentary quiet to accuse Blackburn of being a “white supremacist”.

Parshas Vayera 2017 – Terrorists and Liberals

The Best Investment In The History

This Shiur is from Parshas Vayera last year, but listen to the ‘current events’ of then, sounds like this year; terrorists and liberals!

It’s interesting, the three things he doubted that the President would do, Trump actually accomplished what he said he would do. This shows that while Trump started out seemingly weak, without the proper people working for him, and after he ‘cleaned house’ several times, he was able to be the President he aimed to be.


Supreme Court President Esther Hayut invokes fear tactic of “incitement”: "Criticism by elected officials of judges sometimes borders on incitement,
(notice that the Rabin incident is in the news, and making this statement intimates/coincides with this)

Supreme Court President Esther Hayut attacked politicians' criticism of judges, and said other elected officials who do not condemn the behavior give license to such speech, in an address Tuesday at the President's Residence. jpost


Lau particularly asked that Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid, to publicly condemn the vile statements that have been made about the rabbinate. 

Only a day after Supreme Court President Esther Hayut voiced outrage and regret that politicians were inciting against the Supreme Court, Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau voiced a similar complaint, saying that both the politicians and the Supreme Court want to undermine the Chief Rabbinate.

Speaking at the induction ceremony of the Chief Rabbinate Council at the President’s Residence on Wednesday, Lau apologized for using the occasion and the venue in order to air his grievance, and asked President Reuven Rivlin to join him in condemning the hatred and incitement by mayoral candidates in Tel Aviv and Holon who are directing their venom against the rabbinate.

Lau particularly asked that Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid, who in the past has been far from complimentary with regard to the rabbinate, publicly condemn the vile statements that have been made about the rabbinate. jpost

It’s That Time of Year

It's that time of year again in Israel. It is a holiday season.

We have three holiday seasons: One is Fall: the "High Holy Days" and Sukkot; the other is the Spring holidays of Passover, Independence day and Shavuot; and the third is our very newest - the Rabin festival in November.

This one has replaced the "May Day" workers celebrations in which Israel's Left energetically paraded throughout the land in solidarity with their big brother in the USSR and with the "workers of the world”. May Day has since quietly snuck out the back door with the sudden collapse and humiliation of its model, the USSR.

The Rabin festival has replaced it.

When Yitzchak Rabin was assassinated in November 1996 it was a national tragedy. Most Jews here felt it was a horrible thing that we Jews would ever think of solving our differences with assassinations or violence.

I say most because unfortunately, Jews have indeed used violence and murder as political, tools.

Think of the refugee and arms boat "Altalena". In 1948. Rabin was the commander on the beach who carried out Ben Gurion's orders to sink the ship and hopefully assassinate his poitical opponent Menachem Begin who was on board. It was Begin who averted civil war by ordering his people not to return fire. Seventeen Jews on board were murdered, some while swimming to shore.
Rabin has said on a number of occasions how proud he is of his role in this internecine bloodbath.

Think "the (hunting) Season" from 1946 - 1947 when the Haganna pursued and delivered Irgun members to the British occupying power for incarceration and hanging. Think of the many statements by literary and cultural icons of the Left, how they refer to "settlers" and the need to use force against them; even kill them.

Rabin offered Assad's Syria to expel the Jewish residents of the Golan in a deal with the tyrant. In response to the opposition on the part of the Golan residents he taunted, "the Golan "settlers" can spin like propellors". I don't care. On another occasion, he referred to the "settlers " like cancer.

And so the Rabin festival is foisted upon us annually. It would be enough to remind ourselves of the unacceptable use of force in solving our differences without creating and sustaining a demi-god myth, so very reminiscent of the Bolshevik "Socialist realism" of their mentors in the USSR.

More of the Rabin legacy:

Rabin was relieved of his command during the 1948 war and battle for the road to Jerusalem.
Rabin suffered a nervous break down as chief of staff days before the outbreak of the Six Days War.
Rabin promised the nation that he will never recognize the PLO and won the election of 1992 on that very platform. Less than a year later he brought us Yasser Arafat and armed his killers.
The rest is history.

He passed the Oslo tragedy by bribing two unscrupulous (one is sitting in jail now for drug smuggling) opposition members of Knesset to join his government and receive positions. Of course, he could count on the Arab MK's who loved the idea of bringing Arab terrorists to Israel.

This is a part of the"legacy" of Rabin that the thought police do not like to reveal.

No wonder that the crowds of Rabin legacy fans thin every year despite the shrill moralizing noise from the Left. Israelis are just not interested in the festival anymore. They are too busy dealing with the real legacy of Rabin. The damn that he unlocked still flows rivers of tears.

In the same month that Rabin was assassinated, another Jew was killed as well. This Jew was killed because he was recognized as the undisputed advocate and defender of Jews everywhere.

He wasn't killed because he was giving away our land to our enemies and endangering Jews. On the contrary Slowly but increasingly his legacy will be celebrated as the other one fades

American -and- Israeli Liberalism


Our brothers, the liberal Jews in the United States, are among those who want to revive the socialist revolution. Many of them are hardcore about globalism.

As a result, they worked tirelessly to eliminate the candidacy of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This is in contrast with the conservative positions of the American Right, a supporter of capitalism, patriotism and the right of every state to govern itself.

Our brothers, the liberal Jews in the United States, are in the eye of the storm and take a most visible position in the campaign against President Trump and the conservatives.

Where has liberalism led us? To cheap and free sex, which resulted in sexual harassment; lack of respect from children to their parents and teachers; lack of respect from young people to adults; and the lack of respect from soldiers to their commanders in the military where parents “have taken over.”

So much so that carrying out military tasks is secondary to the soldier’s comfort. “Liberalism led us and continues to lead us toward use of drugs and now we are in the midst of the battle to forbid the free use of cannabis. (“Liberal” Canada and several “liberal” American states have already approved it.) Liberalism has led the world to greed, the pursuit of publicity, and the takeover of the media by tycoons who in turn control the state. Because, after all, greed and popularity in the media have become global values.

Everyone submits to the media tycoons, from politicians to army commanders to entertainers.

Hollywood, which is the “bastion of liberalism,” has taught us to ask, “When a woman says ‘No,’ what does she mean?” It leads the world in the areas of sexual harassment and free, cheap and compulsive sex. Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, Dustin Hoffman and Kevin Spacey are just some examples.

During the peak of their famous movies, to force a woman with a hug until she surrendered and hugged back was a normal sight worthy of applause. Even the flower children of the 1970s, who were a liberal symbol, were a role model for millions of people around the world.

HOLLYWOOD PAINTED them, perhaps rightly so, as people who used sex as a “commodity” and relegated the family framework and values to media. Family values were a non-priority and they have yielded to the communal way of life. Remember the musical Hair?

Globally, our Jewish brothers led the Communist Revolution in Russia at the beginning of the last century, which ultimately failed. Trotsky and Marx set the ideological tone, while 30% of Bolshevik leaders were our Jewish brothers.

The revolution led to Bolshevik regimes that were totalitarian, corrupt, cruel, bloody – and barren of liberalism and freedom. Ultimately, the conservative American capitalist regime defeated them.

Those who argue for the justification of the failed revolution claim that people were simply not prepared for communism. This is a familiar and condescending claim that suits the global liberal elite as well as it does the American Jewish community.

Another point with a direct connection to Israel is that global liberalism led to the “migration of the Muslim peoples” to Europe and other places. The Muslims are growing and their political influence is increasing and influencing the positions of the so-called liberals across Europe.

This effect is making Europe hostile toward Israel. Are liberal American Jews trying to help us in this matter? Do American liberal Jews help us fighting the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement that targets Israel, or are they in fact part of the BDS establishment?

My liberal friends, what are you so proud of and arrogant about?

I support the conservatism that upholds family values, holds nation-states responsible for themselves, and works toward eliminating drug use.

I support turning sex into something pure; creating a relationship of respect between children and parents and between students and teachers; stopping immigration that harms security; and not returning to the corrupt socialism paradigm but rather to a more enlightened capitalism.

I also support the return of values and the desanctification of money; the aspiration for excellence and the return of control over the army to the commanders; and I support the return of control in the schools to the teachers, less liberal and more disciplined.

Jewish Agency Affirms Commitment to Declaration of Independence 
[Against the Jewish Nation State Law]

The Jewish Agency for Israel’s board of governors passes a resolution reaffirming the Jewish people’s commitment to the basic values outlined in Israel’s Declaration of Independence, as a protest against the Jewish nation-state law passed in the Knesset which defines Israel as the national home of the Jewish people. The Agency’s head Isaac Herzog initiated and promoted the decision. timesofisrael

IDF to provide morning-after pills in effort to decrease abortions

Treatment to join a range of services army provides to discreetly prevent unwanted pregnancies

Army to provide ‘morning after pills’ to our Jewish Female soldiers, the same mothers to be after military service. Is this what these innocent young girls and women should go through? Does this mean, sex in the tanks? It could mean dereliction of duty and citizens becoming victims of army and military actions with our enemies. Our ’enemy cousins’ are chuckling at Israeli army curbing military-abortions: Israeli soldiers aborting future Israeli children! just what our so-called Palestinians give out candies and exuberantly cheer. timesofisrael

Parshas Vayeira – Beyond Nature

By Roy S. Neuberger

We learn from Avraham Avinu that we are different from all other nations. We are directly connected with the Master of the World. We are not bound by the laws of nature.

“[Hashem] took him outside, and said, ‘Gaze, now, toward the Heavens and count the stars….” Rashi explains: “[Hashem] took [Avram] out of the space of the world and raised him above the stars. This is the [reason the possuk uses the expression] ‘gaze,’ which denotes looking from above to below.” (Beraishis 15:5)

Before I became observant, I was desperately seeking a way out of the spiritual slavery which constantly oppressed me. One of the paths I tried was involvement in “nature.” I tried to find spiritual peace in natural surroundings. I became involved in the field of environmental conservation as a spiritual pursuit to the point that “Mother Nature” became an avoda zara

Then I learned that nature has a Creator; it is not self-contained. Now I see that “the heavens declare the glory of G-d and the expanse of the sky tells of His handiwork.” (Tehillim 19) It is vital to be constantly aware that Hashem created the physical world, and that, when we cleave to Him, we are above nature. Our spiritual and physical existence depends on knowing this. 

Two thousand years ago, when the Bayis Shaini was destroyed, we were scattered to the Four Corners of the Earth. The likelihood that we would remain a unified Nation bound to the Torah seemed utterly nil, against all logic. But we live by the standards of Eternity. In fact, the very hatred of the world binds us together in Golus. Hashem will not let us disintegrate. No other nation could have remained a cohesive entity after such a catastrophe. “Who is like your people, one nation on earth!” (Shabbos Mincha)

It all begins in this Parsha“Now Avraham and Sarah were old, well on in years. The course of women had ceased to be with Sarah. And Sarah laughed at her insides, saying ‘After I have withered shall I again have clear skin? And my husband is old!’” (Beraishis 18:11-12) 
Avraham and Sarah were physically incapable of bearing children. “[Avraham] said before [Hashem], ‘Master of the universe, I looked at my constellation and saw that I am unfit to beget a son.’ Hashem said to him, ‘Abandon your astrological speculation. Israel is not under the influence of the constellations.’” (Shabbos 156a)

In response to their devotion to Him, Hashem changed their identities when He changed their names. “Hashem said, “Avram will not beget children, but Avraham will. Sarai will not give birth, but Sarah will.” (Beraishis Rabbah 44:10)

The theme is echoed in this week’s emotional Haftara“Elisha came into the house and behold, the lad was dead, laid out on his bed. He entered and shut the door behind them both and prayed to Hashem. Then he went up and lay upon the lad, and placed his mouth upon his mouth, his eyes upon his eyes, his palms upon his palms and prostrated himself upon him and he warmed the flesh of the lad. He withdrew and walked about the house, once this way and once that way, then he went up and prostrated himself upon him; the lad sneezed seven times and … opened his eyes.” (Melachim II 4:32ff; Haftaras Vayeira)

Our elevation over nature is incorporated into the structure of the Mishkan and Bais Hamikdosh

The possuk says, “Carve for yourself two stone tablets like the first ones … and place them in the aron.” (Dvarim 10:1-2)Chazal tell us: “Rav Yosef taught a Baraisa: This teaches us that [both] the [second] luchos and the broken pieces of the [first] luchos are placed into the aron.” (Menachos 99a)

The aron is the center of the world, the place where we turn when we want to communicate with Hashem. Why did the aroncontain the broken pieces of the first luchos? Is it not an embarrassment that the luchos had to be broken? This only occurred because we sinned with the eigel, in itself a terrible blot on the Children of Israel. Would it not have been better to forget this? How can the symbol of our degradation be placed in holiest spot on the earth?

My friends, I believe this is exactly the point. The secret of our existence is that we can rise from sin and frailty. “Cleanse me from unperceived faults.  Also from intentional sins restrain Your servant. Let them not rule me!” (Tehillim 19) Avraham and Sarah became young again. Their children are forever striving to overcome physical and spiritual limitations.

The other nations are on a treadmill that is bound by birth and death, but our path is eternal. “Hashem is close to the brokenhearted and those crushed in spirit He saves. Many are the mishaps of the righteous but from them all Hashem rescues him.” (Tehillim 34) There is no such thing as death for those who cling to Hashem, and thus we thank Him in every Shemoneh Esreh.  Techias hamaisim is not simply a future event. It occurs every second of our lives! Every time that we overcome our taiva … our desires, our anger, our tiredness, our bodily and spiritual limitations, every time we fight to come closer to the Master of the Universe, it is techias hamaisim

The most difficult tefillah of my day is Krias Shema al Hammitah. I am so tired! I want to go to sleep! Sleep is a tremendous test! The Yetzer Hara wants us to sleep! Forever!

But No! “Wake up! Wake up! For your light has come. Rise up and shine! Awaken! Awaken! Utter a song! The glory of G-d is revealed on you!” (Lecha Dodi) This we learn from Avraham Avinu and Sarah Imeinu.

Rabbi Winston – Parshas Vayeira and CTD

God appeared to him . . . (Bereishis 18:1)

THE TALMUD SAYS that God appeared to Avraham on the third day after Bris Milah, when he was weakest. It was a sick call, in the merit of the Milah that was performed. Once Avraham performed Bris, it was a whole different relationship between him and God, and this week’s parsha shows to what extent.

One of the other major benefits from Bris Milah was Eretz Yisroel. The Zohar says that the Jewish people’s connection to the Land is because of Bris Milah, which shows how important the Land is. Bris is considered one of the most primordial concepts, so if Eretz Yisroel is tied to it, it must be extremely central to the purpose of Creation as well.

With respect to this, the Talmud also says that three wonderful “gifts” are acquired through suffering: Torah, Eretz Yisroel, and Olam HaBa—the World-to-Come (Brochos 5a). The only question is, if they have to be acquired, WHY are they called gifts? And, if the currency of acquisition is suffering, HOW can they be called gifts? 

The answer of course is that, once acquired, these three, Torah, Eretz Yisroel, and the World-to-Come are so wonderful that a person will be happy to have spent the pain to get them. The eventual pleasure of “having” them will make the suffering seem like a small price to have paid. 

The World-to-Come is certainly like that. Mesiros Nefesh, or self-sacrifice, is the currency of the World-to-Come. You literally buy your portion, or increase it, through acts of self-sacrifice. A person DEFINITELY buys his gift of eternal life with suffering.

Torah as well. Without self-sacrifice, a person does not acquire Torah. He can read it, and he can learn it, but he won’t acquire it to the degree that he becomes ONE with his learning, and feels extra life because of it. This is a whole different level of Torah, one that someone from the outside can’t possibly appreciate. And that’s before discussing what self-sacrifice for Torah on this side of history will do for a person’s level of Torah on the other side of history.

But what about Eretz Yisroel? The Spies did not reject Torah. They certainly did not reject reward in the World-to-Come, though they ended up losing it because of their sin. They did however reject ERETZ YISROEL, seeing it as anything BUT a gift. They were clearly not prepared to pay for it with self-sacrifice, as they told Moshe Rabbeinu, the Jewish people, and effectively, God Himself when they chose to stay in the desert. And quite frankly, there are millions of Jews around the world today who feel the same way.

The short answer to this question is in Parashas Behar, where God says that He took us out of Egypt, to bring us to Canaan, to be our God. From this the Talmud, remarkably, learns that He can’t actually be our God while we live in the Diaspora (Kesuvos 110b). Dovid HaMelech went so far as to call himself an idol worshipper because he was forced from the land, though he never came close to doing any such thing.

There are midrashim galore that elaborate on this topic. (Personally, I have written a couple of books to explain the importance of Eretz Yisroel and the mitzvah of living there. You can order any of them through Amazon, or from my own site, if you want more information on the topic.)

Just one thing I’d like to point out for now. It is interesting that the Talmud put Eretz Yisroel between Torah and the World-to-Come, and not first. Assuming that the list is in order of importance, one would expect Eretz Yisroel to be the least important of the three. From the Talmud, it seems that it is a bridge between Torah and the World-to-Come, which given the verse from Parashas Behar, would make sense. 

This was something that Moshe Rabbeinu understood perfectly well, as one would expect. This is why he worked so hard to overturn the decree against his entry into the Land. And, as the Talmud points out elsewhere, it wasn’t just to perform the mitzvos dependent on the Land. He would have received reward for having done them because he wanted to, but was prevented from doing so (Brochos 6a). 

There are many answers to this, and on many different levels. One of them though has to do with the fact that the souls of the Jewish people were “hewn” from Eretz Yisroel. When a person acquires a portion of the Land, they acquire a portion of himself or herself. It’s like buying the house you grew up in, except in this case it is the “house” you are meant to live in as well. It is the ULTIMATE home of a person, where they can most be themselves both spiritually and physically.

To this end, I have suggested to people over the years, especially if they cannot move here, to at least buy a piece of land or invest in something, ANYTHING. There is no way to overstate the importance of having a portion in the Land, ANY portion. It’s why, according to the GR”A, Eretz Yisroel has needed help from the Diaspora, to allow Diaspora Jews a means to be invested in the Land and redemption when they can’t be there in person. 

To my absolute joy, I was contacted this week by an organization that actually makes a point of helping people to do exactly this. It’s called, appropriately, “Kinyan Eretz Yisroel,” or “Acquisition of the Land of Israel.” It is a modern day means for Jews around the world to have A portion in the gift meant for them, since Creation. It is an opportunity to become spiritually attached to the Land that is already spiritually attached to them.

This is the link that was given to me for people to find out more about this unique opportunity, and to participate in this incredible program. And, being so close to the end of history, MUCH closer than most people know, it is a merit of tremendous importance that can, in the end, make a difference regarding how one fares as history transitions to the Messianic Era. 

Check it out here: https://www.kinyaneretzyisrael.com/?uname=ca&camp=rpw. It’s not such a major sacrifice for Eretz Yisroel, but it is a major acquisition for life in this world and the next one.

the Dots, Issue #5

I have started a new book called, “A Separate Matter: Current Polarization Mystically Explained.” I plan to publish and sell it like the others, b”H, but in the meantime, I am sharing it here because of the importance of the material.

SEPARATION. NOTHING SPECIAL about THIS word. It is as much a part of the everyday ordinary vernacular like food, or house, or money. Maybe even less so. If there is anything special about the word, it is unknown to the vast majority of mankind.

In Hebrew, the word might gain more attention. It is “birrur,” and it is the basis of words such “to clarify—l’varrer,” and “choice—breirah,” etc. Because, when you CLARIFY something, you SEPARATE the irrelevant facts from the relevant ones, and when you make a choice, you do the same. A GOOD decision is the result of a GOOD birrur. 

The body does the same thing. Everything we eat is a combination of “good” and “evil.” The digestive system, beginning with the teeth, separates the nutritious parts from the waste, and then utilizes the former while rejecting the latter. This separation process takes place on many levels within the body, and far more beyond it. 

When it is all said and done, birrur is the basis of ALL history, because it IS history. It’s Godly too. It’s what God did to make the world in the first place, and our birrur, whenever and however we do it, just finished off what He left undone.

Well, at least it would have been. Adam HaRishon had but ONE choice to make, ONE birrur to execute, and that would have finished off the process of Creation. The world would have been, and the Messianic Era would have begun then and there.

He made a choice, alright. He just made the WRONG one. He chose to listen to his wife over God, who had listened to the snake over God. The result was not only NOT the completion of Creation, but a reversal of many aspects of it. Previously perfected elements of Creation became imperfect, increasing man’s role in the perfecting of Creation.

Or, more accurately, his OPPORTUNITY in the perfecting of Creation, because, whether he participates in the process or not, it WILL get done. The birrur WILL BE completed. Moshiach’s arrival DEPENDS upon it, and he MUST come by a specific time, if not earlier.

The trouble is, not too many people even know about the idea of Birrur, let alone actively and consciously take part in it. It’s a Kabbalistic concept, and how many people learn Kabbalah? And of those who do, how many emphasize the need to focus on birrur as a way of life? Not enough.

It’s always been an important concept. It’s what life is about. It’s how a person earns reward in Olam HaBa—the World-to-Come. But it is ESPECIALLY important now, so LATE in history, so CLOSE to its end. Because like any important process that approaches its deadline, birrur is INTENSIFYING. 

It’s the reason why history itself has become so intense, which even the average person has noticed, though they have no idea why, in the ULTIMATE sense. Nor can they appreciate how the decisions they are making today as a matter of personal preference might be dramatically different if they understood what was REALLY going on in history. What they have embraced or rejected, they may later find out, may have actually put them on the wrong side of the “line” when the curtain comes down on history.

Hard to believe? 
Just religious intimidation? 

Perhaps. But isn’t it worth first understanding what it is that is being suspected and rejected? If it IS true and accurate, AND IT IS, then “better late than sorry” might not work here. In fact, it won’t, at least not without some major miracle. But, who wants to rely on one of THOSE when it comes to surviving history, or making it to the NEXT world? While you consider your answer, we’ll go to the first chapter: Separate WHAT Exactly?

Rabbi Kahana – Parashat Vayeira

Parashat Vayeira 5779
Rabbi Nachman Kahana

Four Eulogies

The Talmud (Megilla 3a) makes reference to the Bible translation composed by the Mishnaic sage Rabbi Yonatan ben Uziel, the most important disciple of Hillel (Succah 28a). The Talmud quotes a problematic verse in Zecharia 12:11: “On that day, the eulogy in Jerusalem shall be as great as the eulogy over Hadad-Rimon in the plain of Megiddon.” Yet where in Scripture do we find a man named Hadad-Rimon being eulogized in the plain of Megiddon?
Yonatan ben Uziel rendered this verse, “On that day, the eulogy in Jerusalem shall be as great as the eulogy of Achav bar Omri who was killed by Hadad-Rimon ben Tav-Rimon in Ramot Gilad, and the eulogy of Yoshiyahu ben Amon who was killed by Paro Chagira in the Valley of Meggido.”
How did Achav and Yoshiyahu merit such impressive eulogies that they were used as examples of great eulogies which will be held in the future in Yerushalayim?
The problem is compounded regarding Achav, one of three kings regarding whom the Mishna in Sanhedrin 90a states that they forfeited their portion in the World to Come, together with Yeravam ben Nevat and Menashe ben Chizkiyahu.
Achav and his Phoenician wife E’zevel hunted down and murdered HaShem’s prophets, all but one hundred who were hidden away in caves by the righteous Ovadia (I Malachim 18:4), and in addition Achav implanted idolatry in every Jewish home. Yet, despite all his evils he merited a eulogy reserved for the greatest figures amongst our people, because he was a revered and beloved leader. Achav brought his people wealth, waged the wars of Israel and expanded the Land’s boundaries.
The circumstances of his death illustrate his greatness as a leader. Achav took part in his last battle, against Aram (today’s Syria). Standing tall in his command chariot, an Aramean soldier named Na’aman at random shot an arrow in the air, that penetrated Achav’s armor. The king could have left his command post to receive medical aid, but he refused, lest his absence weaken his soldiers’ determination, and he bled to death. Achav was a beloved, admired king, but he was far from being a man of Torah.
King Yoshiyahu, by contrast, was righteous. In his lifetime, he initiated and supervised the renovation of the Temple, worked long and hard to eradicate idolatry, and renewed pilgrimages to Jerusalem at Pesach time. The Bible describes how in his day the Pesach celebrations achieved heights not seen since the times of Yehoshua bin Nun.
Yoshiyahu, like Achav, was a faithful son of the Land of Israel. He was killed at Megiddo, while attempting to prevent the King of Egypt from traversing the Land on his way to fight Assyria, based on his understanding that the Torah’s promise that “a sword shall not pass through your land” (Vayikra 26:6) referred even to an allied sword.
We learn in Bava Kama that when Yoshiyahu’s body was returned to Jerusalem, 36,000 people took turns holding the coffin on the way for burial. The Gemara there asks, “Wasn’t the same done for Achav?” and replies that a Torah scroll was placed on Yoshiyahu’s coffin and everyone called out, “This one fulfilled what is written in here!” – an act not performed for Achav. Yoshiyahu, who feared HaShem, and Achav, the heretic, were beloved kings who fought for the glory of their people and Land.
The Prophet Zecharia foresaw that in the future two funerals would be held in Jerusalem whose eulogies would be on a par with those of Yoshiyahu and Achav.
Since the destruction of the Second Temple, the City of Jerusalem has not known such impressive funerals as those of my brother, Rabbi Meir Kahana, and of Yitzchak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel.
Rabin was not Achav and my brother was not Yoshiyahu, but in their lives we can identify patterns resembling those of the two kings.
Yitzchak Rabin was far removed from Torah and mitzvot, but like Achav, he dedicated his life to defending the Land of Israel. He was a leader whom many people respected, and they showed that respect by accompanying him to his final resting place.
My brother, Rav Meir, hy”d, was a Torah scholar and a leader. He brought the problem of Soviet Jewry into the headlines, contributed greatly to the collapse of that wicked regime and to the opening of its gates to allow Jews to move to Israel. He learned Torah constantly and gave generously to charity. The number of participants at his funeral was estimated at over two hundred thousand people.
Rav Meir and Yitzchak Rabin represented disparate world views, and the circumstances of their leaving this world attest to their lives.
Rabin was murdered on a Saturday Night following Parashat Lech Lecha. Rav Meir was murdered a few days after Parashat Vayeira.
In Parashat Lech Lecha, Avraham asks HaShem, “May it be granted that Yishmael should live before You” (Bereishiet 17:18). Avraham defended his son Yishmael borne to him by his wife Hagar. In Parashat Vayeira, Sarah demanded that Avraham expel Yishmael, saying, “‘Drive away this maid-servant together with her son. The son of this maid-servant will not share the inheritance with my son Yitzchak!” (ibid., 21:10).
Sarah could discern wickedness and licentiousness in Yishmael and she knew her son Yitzchak could never coexist peacefully with him. HaShem commanded Avraham to honor Sarah’s request – Yitzchak and Yishmael would, indeed, never live together in peace.
Rabin, who was murdered near Parashat Lech Lecha, advocated Avraham’s stance of “May it be granted that Yishmael should live before you.” He believed that these two nations could coexist side by side. To achieve that goal, he imported thousands of P.L.O. murderers from Tunisia, equipping them with lethal weaponry.
Rav Meir, hy”d, advocated Sarah’s approach, that the souls of Yitzchak and Yishmael were forged from disparate worlds. Yitzchak was a Torah scholar, worthy to be brought as a sacrifice to HaShem. Yishmael, by contrast, was a wild man, who praised and extolled death over life, and Rav Meir was murdered just after Parashat Vayeira.
History has proven that the message of parashat Vayeira that Yitzchak and Yishmael cannot coexist is the dominant one.
May the soul of both these Jewish leaders – Rav Meir and Yitzchak Rabin, be bound up in the bond of the living souls.

Shabbat Shalom,
Nachman Kahana

Jerusalem and Israel is the Ancient Homeland Given by God to the Children of Yaakov

Where did the Jewish People/Nation come from:

From [Avraham, Yitzchak, and] *Yaakov, and his 12 sons (Tribes),  the descendants of which crossed into the Land of Caanan with Yehoshua; from which they settled and took custody of the Land. The history of the Jewish People/Nation is recorded in the Jewish Bible (Chumash: the Five Books of Moses), a/k/a The Old Testament. WIKIPEDIA writes that the Jewish people originated in the land of Israel, and have maintained physical, cultural, and religious ties to it ever since. [. . .] and the Jewish Bible claims that a Jewish monarchy existed starting in the 10th century BCE, the first appearance of the name "Israel" in the secular (non-Biblical) historic record is the Egyptian Merneptah Stele, circa 1200 BCE.

During the Biblical period, two kingdoms occupied the highland zone, the Kingdom of Israel (Samaria) in the north, and the Kingdom of Judah in the south. The Kingdom of Israel was conquered by the Neo-Assyrian Empire (circa 722 BCE), and the Kingdom of Judah by the Neo-Babylonian Empire (586 BCE). Upon the defeat of the Babylonian Empire by the Achaemenid Empire under Cyrus the Great (538 BCE), the Jewish elite returned to Jerusalem, and the Second Temple was built. For a timeline of Israeli settlement in Eretz Yisrael, visit WIKIPEDIA.

So, where did the Arabs (Muslims) come from:

According to the Book of Genesis, Abraham married Keturah after the death of his first wife, Sarah. Abraham and Keturah had six sons [Zimran (son), Jokshan (son), Medan (son), Midian (son), Ishbak (son), Shuah (son)]. Genesis and First Chronicles also list seven of her grandsons (Sheba, Dedan, Ephah, Epher, Enoch, Abida, and Eldaah). Keturah's sons were said to have represented the Arab tribes who lived south and east of Palestine (Genesis 25:1-6).  WIKIPEDIA

ALSO: Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah. She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan. The sons of Dedan were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim. The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah. Abraham gave all he had to Isaac. But to the sons of his concubines Abraham gave gifts, while he was still living, and he sent them away from his son Isaac, eastward to the east country.  WIKIPEDIA

So, where were the Muslims living in: 10th C BCE, 1200 BCE, 332 BCE, 165 BCE, 66–136 CE, 614 CE, until 638 CE (first Muslim invasion)?

Where? In the deserts of Saudi Arabia. See Map below.

Muhammad c. 570 CE – 8 June 632 CE) was the founder of Islam.

WIKIPEDIA: The history of the Arabs begins in the mid-ninth century BC, which is the earliest known attestation of the Old Arabic language. WIKIPEDIA

ALSO: mention of Arabs is from the mid-ninth century BCE as a tribal people in eastern and southern Syria, and the north of the Arabian Peninsula; According to Islamic tradition, the Qahtanites are pure Arabs, unlike the Adnanites who are "Arabized Arabs", descended from *Ishmael through Adnan.

ALSO: According to Islamic tradition, the Qahtanites are pure Arabs, unlike the Adnanites who are "Arabized Arabs", descended from *Ishmael through Adnan. The Qahtani people are divided into the two sub-groups of Himyar (Himyartes) and Kahlan (Kahlanis).

ALSO: Adnan is the traditional ancestor of the Adnanite Arabs of Northern, Western and Central Arabia, as opposed to the Qahtanite Arabs of Southern Arabia who descend from Qahtan.

Trying to Discourage People From Believing in God

“Fundamentalist Vaccines”
(believe it or not)

In order to discourage people from believing in God (chv”s) and instead have them put all their faith in the godless state (atheism), scientists for more than a decade now have been toying around with a so-called “fundamentalist vaccine,” also known as “FunVax,” that they claim will rid people of their “God gene” and make them good little slaves for the NWO.

See also The God Gene

In a video clip shared by Emily Windsor from Truth or Dogma on her REAL.video channel, a man is seen and heard explaining the nature of FunVax. In essence, its purpose is to target the VMAT2 gene for destruction – VMAT2 being the “God gene” that visual mapping shows is expressed in people who are religious, and not expressed in people who are non-religious.

“On the left over here, we have individuals who are religious fundamentalists, religious fanatics, and this is the expression RTPCR, real-time PCR, expression of the VMAT2 gene,” the man explains. “Over here, we have individuals who are not particularly fundamentalists, not particularly religious, and you can see that there’s a much reduced expression of this particular gene, the VMAT2 gene.”

Anti-God “viruses” are being added to vaccines to eliminate all religion from the world 
(except the religion of atheism and state-worship, of course)

What you’ll notice upon watching the entire clip is that the students are discussing with their teacher how “viruses” can be used to vaccinate people against believing in God, using everyday vaccines such as flu shots as carriers to deliver these anti-God viruses into people’s bodies.

Once these viruses are inside a person’s body, they systematically destroy the VMAT2 gene that visual mapping shows “lights up” when a person is presented with information about God. Once the VMAT2 is gone, in other words, there’s no more “lighting up” going on in in a person’s brain as it relates to hearing about God.

“Our hypothesis is that these are fanatical people, that they have over-expression of the VMAT2 gene, and that by vaccinating them against this, we’ll eliminate this behavior,” the man presenting the slides is heard stating about how anti-God vaccines function.

Moses Will be Alive at the Time of Repentance -and- Trump and Cyrus

Who Is Really Donald Trump?

…the mission of Cyrus as part of the mission of Messiah, Son of Yosef from the left side which means the quality of judgment

The might of Messiah the Son of Yosef lies in the miraculous assistance he can offer in connection with ingathering the exiles, that will come about when the awakening comes from below ….

(The Voice of the Turtledove, from the pupil of the Vilna Gaon)

Moses will be alive at the time of Repentance (Teshuva)

Does Haaretz Get It?

"The grisly hit-job on Khashoggi has implications far beyond its exposure of the Saudi Crown Prince as brutal and reckless. In Jerusalem and D.C., they’re mourning their whole strategic concept for the Mideast - not least, for countering Iran” Haaretz

This may be the *best thing that has happened so far regarding the Kushner/Greenblatt (“Trump”) Peace Plan for the Middle East.

ME:  My premise was and is that the whole Khashoggi happening was to embarrass the Saudis, jeopardize the so-called Peace Plan and drive a wedge between the Trump White House and the Saudi Crown Prince (MbS). And now Haaretz seems to confirm that. [Notice how Iran has been eerily quiet about this . . . conspiracy anyone? Also, notice the collaboration between Erdogan and the Saudi King?]

Khashoggi’s disappearance has further tarnished the crown prince’s reputation, deepening questions among Western allies and some Saudis about his leadership Haaretz


*Of course, we Jewish Believers know that Hashem controls everything.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - September 2018: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

This past month of September was a wild and dangerous ride for many denizens of planet earth. From the USA, to Europe, India, China and Africa, the primary threat came from the massive and sudden amounts of rainfall that swept away land, homes and people. At the same time, many areas received unusually early (or late for the Southern hemisphere) snowfall. Remember, for most of September it was still summer time! North America, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Australasia all received lots of the white stuff.

Hurricane Florence was the major hurricane for this September as it slammed into the SE US coast killing 17 people and dropping massive amounts of rain, while 3 typhoons hit the NW Pacific causing widespread destruction to Hong Kong, the Philippines and Japan. Typhoon Jebi, which hit Japan, was the strongest storm in 25 years. Towards the end of the month, a major 7.5 earthquake that gave rise to a devastating tsunami ravaged Indonesia's Sulawesi island. The death toll currently stands at over 2,000, with authorities saying that that number could triple as recovery operations continue.

Like almost every other month in recent years, this past September was also marked by multiple volcanic eruptions, major wildfires and the ever present (and increasing) meteor/fireball sightings. In short, the planet is still rocking and rolling at an alarming pace. Now is not the time to look away!
