No Body - No Anger

The phrase “He is not a body and not a power in a body” (אינו גוף ולא כח בגוף) contains 16 letters. Written as a square, the corners spell באפו, “in His wrath” = גוף, “body”. The diagonal from lower-right to upper-left also reads “in His wrath.” The lesson: No body – no anger.

by: Harav Yitzchak Ginsburgh

Anthropomorphism (16 letters!) begins with attributing to God the human characteristic of anger. Anger results from corporeality. My body differentiates between me and you, making me not you (both in matter and spirit), thus inviting sentiments of dissatisfaction with you. Dissatisfaction results in anger.

In the Torah we find God getting angry at man, when man sins. From anger comes punishment. Likewise, God is happy with man when he merits, and rewards him for his good deeds. Although “reward for good is always more than punishment for evil,” as an anthropomorphism, God’s finding pleasure with man is simply the counterpart, a derivative so to speak, of His getting angry. Anger, dissatisfaction, is more human-like than satisfaction. Man’s essential corporeality gives rise to anger, which thereafter can be appeased and transformed into pleasure and reward.

Maimonides explains that since God is changeless (as explicit in the Bible) He does not get angry! Anger is the most primal change of composure in the psyche of man, and as such the beginning of anthropomorphism. All anthropomorphisms that appear in the Bible are God speaking to us in our language, for we cannot fathom Him and His ways.

The lesson: The less we emphasize our bodies, the less we feel our “otherness” from one another, the less our composure changes, and the less we become angry.

King David says in Psalms: “A moment in His wrath [= body, as we saw], life in His will.” From this phrase we learn that anger is a time-bound phenomenon (and exists for no more than a fleeting second). God is above time (an essentially corporal phenomenon, dependant upon a body in motion, as explained by Maimonides), but to us it appears as though, due to our misbehavior, He becomes angry. To the extent that we transcend our bodies so do we shorten our experience of God’s anger, reducing the experience to no more than a split second. To nullify anger altogether – our own innate characteristic of anger and our experience of God’s anger – is to live forever, “life in His will.”

The RAA is Fighting the Infiltration of Foreign Worship


Today is Wed. Jun. 14, 2017 | Sivan 20, 5777

On behalf of the R.A.A., Rabbi Yehoshua S. Hecht calls upon the government of Israel and its Judiciary to respect the heritage and sacred traditions of the Jewish people by not introducing foreign worship and rituals that are anathema to the unity of the entire Jewish people and disrespect the sacred KOTEL traditions adhered to throughout the millennia.

this blogger: though I am sure everyone knows that his release is regarding WOW - the Women of the Wall. However, I spoke with Rabbi Mendy Miroczink, Executive Vice-President, of RRA on the phone today regarding all the activities of the xtian idolaters taking place. Let us pray that another news release is forthcoming!

Holy Children

Exodus 23:13 Concerning all that I have said to you you shall beware, and the name of the gods (ie J*sus), of others you shall not mention; it shall not be heard through your mouth. Below, you will see holy Jews praising the G-d of our Fathers - there is NO other nation that is Holy. HaShem set the Jews apart from the goyim - gave us the Torah. Tehillim 147:19-20.

Their Children Singing Praises to their god

Exodus 23:13 Concerning all that I have said to you you shall beware, and the name of the gods (ie J*sus), of others you shall not mention; it shall not be heard through your mouth.  

Children  - singing praises to a created being. WHAT HASHEM HAS COMMANDED JEWS NOT TO DO!

SO SAD THAT THESE SECULAR JEWS WOULD RATHER SING PRAISES TO A CREATED BEING RATHER THAN THE CREATOR. THEY FELL PREY TO THESE MISSIONARIES.

Name Analysis of a Convert

I always, but always, had a connection to the Parsha of Lech Lecha from the time that I converted. This conversion took place erev Shavous 2004. Until recently, I could not understand fully why it was that I heard these words over and over again in my head. I present to my readers and visitors what HaShem has revealed to me. Follow and you will understand my heart's desire and my request for you to forward this post to those you think will appreciate it.

PREFACE: My given name is Sondra, my spouse and son's name is listed in my presentation below. My husband and I were blessed with this son when we were 58 and 48, respectively. I believe that covers it. This name analysis I have done for others - for events such as wedding, bat/bar mitzvah, etc. If you wish for me to do the same for you - please contact me at geula 613 @ gmail com. 

I will first show you two verses that I can insert into my davening of shemoneh esrei. I do not present the following to seek recognition as the following I learned from shiratdevorah's post and which I left a comment - AND now have decided to publish ALL that I found on my name, only to get others excited to see what HaShem showed me and though we know that everything but everything is in Torah - when someone actually finds their name - it is a WOW HaShem toda rabbah for revealing this to me! The 2nd one נשא is the Parsha of the week - when I converted! 

I find it amazing that just as Avraham and Sarah were 10 years apart when Yitzchak was born - my husband and I also are 10 years apart and we also were blessed with a son.
     All together, the four names, "Aryeh Boruch", "Zahava", and "Yosef" has 16 letters and can therefore be written in the form of a square, like this.
     The value of the four corner letters in this figure אהיף is 96, the value of "God of David" (יי אלהי דויד) - also it is the value of "דודי הנה זה" from Shir HaShirim 2:8 - also (המלאך) -  (עבדך) - also (יהללו י-ה) - and (HaShem מי כי).
     
     The rest of the letters total 523, the value of "and your faith" (ואמונתך). The gematria of the four letters forming the inner square in this figure, רוהב, is 213 which is the gematria of "Lord, HaShem - how will I know" (במה אדע HASHEM אדניׂ). It is interesting that the letters of the 2 diagonal lines (26) + (283) = 309 minus the 4 letters in the center square (213) = 96!!!!
     The figure below is a possuk from Parsha Tzav and is one of the possukims that I may insert into my davening of Shmoneh Esrei. The gematri"a of Tzav is 96. The first time a Hebrew word Vayadah וידעו in Bereishis 3:7. This word is translated as "and they knew".
     The word אף = eighty-one (81) = three (3) to the 4th power, or גד to the 7th power. The world אף was particularly loved by the Ba'al Shem Tov. Yet, often it is explained that possibly he was referring to a central verse in Isaiah, "Everything that is called by My name, I have created it, I have formed it, I have even [אף]  made it" (Isaidah 43:7), denoting that our lower physical realm is also connected with the higher spiritual ones (the Ba'al Shem Tov's Divine service was always to connect the spiritual realm to the physical realm, to bring blessing into the world as we experience it). But now we can propose an additional understanding of the Ba'al Shem Tov's intention. He may well have alluded to the blessing of Gad, to the "even" (af, in Hebrew, af also means "nose", the extended "arm" of the head, the essential power to connect the emotion, which finds expression through the nose, to the intellect) that connects the arm to the head (as in the mitzvah of tefilin and the head tefilin). As we shall see, these last words of the blessing of Gad produce a chazakah (a phenomenon that repeats itself three times over) of "good" (tov) squared, the essential attribute of the Ba'al Shem Tov!  source: inner.org

HaShem is Gathering the Nations!

BORUCH HASHEM the prophecy has and is happening right before our eyes! Thank you Devash at palmtreeofdevorah for opening our eyes to this prophecy!

There is only one verse in all the Tanach which is composed of all the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet plus the five end-letters. The verse in found in Tzefanyah (3:8) and speaks of the importance of waiting for the final redemption.

ספר צפניה פרק ג : ח (thank you to Israel613 for having this on their site)  
לכן חכו לי נאם ידוד ליום קומי לעד כי משפּטי לאסף גוים לקבצי ממלכות לשׁפך עליהם זעמי כל חרון אפי כי באש קנאתי תאכל כל הארץ


“Therefore wait for Me, says Hashem, until the day that I rise up to the prey. For My determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them My indignation, all My fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy.”

That all the letters of the Torah express this theme teaches us that the yearning and waiting for the redemption to reveal His dominion is the essential core of the whole Torah.  (Beer Moshe Vayechi 820)


The Gemara, Sanhedrin, tells that a certain Christian asked Rabbi Abahu: "When will the Mashiach come?" The Rabbi answered him: “When the shame of these people will be uncovered”. (Sanhedrin 99ª) The people he refers to are the followers of the Nazarethite. (AKA THE WALLERS! AND EVERYONE THEY BRING WITH THEM TO ISRAEL!) When the flag of the State of Israel was raised, all of the Vatican's doctrines of the outcast, miserable Jew collapsed. We returned to our Land, and it became clear that the Eternal One of Israel will not lie. "( Samuel, Part One, 15:29)

How different things were before the establishment of the State of Israel, when we were outside the Land, and the gentiles were in it, and the possibility for a Jew to enter Eretz Israel rested in foreign hands. This was a time of Galut. We've progressed a bit since then and are returning to a normal condition: Eretz Israel is now in our hands! Jerusalem is now in our hands! And we are now independent! This process unfolds in stages. Just as Hashem can bring the redemption through miracles, He can do it without miracles, in a simpler way, through a natural process, via the conquest and settlement of Eretz Israel."

HaYovel, the "Ephraimites" and Who They Think Israel Is
27 Iyyar 5777
Day 42 of the Omer

Since our series on the Waller-War, sources have been sending in new information which should be of interest to the readers of this blog. The HaYovel 2-week-long "Recognize Jerusalem" Tour begins today and they plan to socialize with a lot of Jews as they tour around the Shomron and Jerusalem. 

Therefore, it is only prudent that Jews take note of a very significant fact. The people associated with HaYovel do not define "Israel" as Jews traditionally do. 

They are "Ephraimites" - Christians who claim a right of land acquisition in Eretz Yisrael based on their identity as "Israel" which is theirs by virtue of their Christian faith. You will recall from an earlier post an interview in which Rimona Frank, a messianic Jew living in Israel, advised Tommy Waller of HaYovel not to mention the "Ephraimite" identity since Jews would not understand it, but to say that they were from the "Lost" Tribes which is more favorably received.

You might also recall some clips we shared from a talk Caleb Waller of HaYovel gave at a "Messianic/Hebrew Roots Congregation" in Nashville, Tennessee called Mercy Collective just a few weeks ago.

Below, John Diffenderfer, the Pastor of Mercy Collective explains, from the Ephraimite perspective, who Israel really is.

The Waller War and Why it Matters - Part 5 (Final) READ HERE
22 Iyyar 5777
Day 37 of the Omer

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4

READ THIS HERE! 
One Ephraimite leader put it like this. He said the Ephraimite movement is a process: 1) the "Spirit" called the ten tribes; 2) they became fascinated by Jewish things; 3) they began to establish relationships with Jews; 4) now, they are ready to "come home".

HaYovel is a major part of that "process" which they have been patiently building upon. I almost said "selflessly", but that would not be true. They have benefitted, not only spiritually, but materially, from their work in Israel. (See here if you missed it.)

But, above the emotionally-manipulated masses of Christians who are already deluded by their false religion (what's a little more delusion after all?), there stands a more sinister agenda. I'll let the following video clips speak for themselves.

5777 The Year of Peace


A gutten erev Shabbos everyone. After listening to Harav Yitzchak Ginsburgh's shiur on the year 5777, (HaRav's video shiur had over 12,000 views) I just had to put this google picture I found on the dove with the olive branch - together with the topic of the shiur which focused on the word עז which translated means might. 

If you have not had the opportunity to listen, I highly recommend that you do. Here is the link to the transcript of this amazing shiur.

When Moshiach Comes

Chapter Seven The Messianic King 

The following is a excerpt from When Moshiach Comes by Rabbi Yehudah Chayoun.

A shoot shall come forth from the stem of Yishai, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. The spirit of the Lord Shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and under- Standing, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of Knowledge and fear of the Lord. (Yeshayahu 11:1-2) .

Moshiach’s Identity THE MESSIANIC KING will be an unknown; nothing will be known about his background or family. 

 As Rambam writes: “Know that you will not know of his arising before it happens, such that one could say about him that he is so-and-so’s son and from such-and-such a family. Rather, a man will arise who will be unknown before he is revealed” (“Iggeres Teiman”). 

 Yet the Gemara relates: What is [Moshiach’s] name? 
The school of R. Shiloh said, “Shilo is his name....” 
The school of R. Yannai said, “Yinon is his name....” T
he school of R. Chaninah said, “Chaninah is his name....” 
And some say, “Menachem b. Chizkiyahu is his name.” 

Rav Nachman said, “If Moshiach is among the living, he is like myself....” Rav said, “If he is among the living, he would be our holy master [R. Yehudah HaNasi]. If he is among the dead, he would have been Daniel, ‘the most desirable man’ [Daniel 10:11].” (Sanhedrin 98b) 

Rashi explains this gemara two ways: 

1. If Moshiach is alive, he is certainly R. Yehudah HaNasi, who is ill and pious. If he is dead, he must be Daniel, who suffered. 

2. If Moshiach is alive, he is someone like R. Yehudah HaNasi. If he is dead, he is someone like Daniel. 

Lest Rambam contradict Rashi, we must posit that, even according to his first explanation, people did not believe R. Yehudah HaNasi was Moshiach, as they were not even sure Moshiach was alive or dead. They were simply emphasizing that each person mentioned in the gemara was suited to be Moshiach in his generation. 

According to Rashi’s second explanation, Rav meant not that R. Yehudah HaNasi and Daniel were the sole Messianic candidates in Their generations, only that Moshiach would resemble them. 

Thus, R. Chaim Vital implies that his rebbe, the holy Ari, was fit to be Moshiach. As R. Chaim writes: “Anyone who is the redeemer of Israel…will be someone who has suffered and known sickness…as was the case with the Ari” (R. Chaim Kohen, Toras Chaim, p. 17). 

Similarly, the Rema’s rebbe, R. Shalom Shachna, Argues that Moshiach’s name is Shachna,and R. Chaim b. Atar writes that it is Chaim. 

R. Yitzchak Abarbanel comments on our gemara: They spoke about “Moshiach’s name,” not Moshiach himself, because they were discussing not Moshiach’s actuality but what the nation needed him to be, as intimated by his name: 

[If] his name is Shilo, it implies that there will be shalom [a play on the word “Shiloh”] and truth in his days. 

 [If] his name is Yinon, it indicates that he will be superior [“elyon,” a play on the word “Yinon”] to all kings.... 

And [if] his name is Menachem [literally, “comforter”], it will be a sign that “he will comfort us because of our deeds” [Bereishis 5:29].... Undoubtedly, each of the scholars was seeking his unique virtue [which Moshiach will definitely have] and [therefore] associated Moshiach’s name with his name. (Yeshuos Meshicho, p. 47)

2015 Hate Crime Report in NYC





A little late in getting this out - report came out in August 2016.  Of the 256 crimes with an anti-religious bias, 206 were against the Jews. AND we are told again that Jews belong in the oven as reported in the Yeshiva World. And on this Shabbos a Jew was stripped for his clothing by gunpoint.

OvEr CoMe YoUr YeTzEr HaRa

     It says in Sha’ar HaGilgulim that when Adam HaRishon sinned, all souls that were a part of his soul fell off into the Klipos, the realm of spiritual impurity. Even though a soul leaves the Klipos when migrating to a body, one specific klipah remains with it all of his lives. This klipah is like spiritual clothing for his soul, and it is the source of a person’s spiritual weakness, creating challenges and tests throughout life.


     If a person overcomes his yetzer hara at a time of test, then he has temporarily left his personal Mitzrayim for the moment. If he overcomes a particular yetzer hara for the rest of his life, then he has left “Mitzrayim” for good, with respect to that particular evil inclination. If a person remains “enslaved” to his yetzer hara, then he remains in his own personal version of Mitzrayim. 


     Four-fifths of the Jewish people died in the Plague of Darkness because they could finally enjoy the Egypt they helped to build. Given the choice of a Jewish lifestyle in a Jewish land or an Egyptian one in an Egyptian land, four-fifths—FOUR-FIFTHS!!—of the Jewish people chose the latter. They were deemed beyond spiritual recognition, beyond redemption.


     The Korban Pesach was a sacrifice. God is saying that He knows that leaving one’s past in the past is also a sacrifice. It is one however that has to be made with a complete heart, if a person is going to cross the threshold into a holy and far more spiritually productive lifestyle. The alternative might look like fun for now, but it will prove itself at some time in the future to be darkness. It is a darkness that is the very opposite of personal and national redemption.

Lest You Fret Over the Delay of the Geula

"Lest you wonder at the many centuries that have gone by without the redemption of Jerusalem and Israel, do not forget that the Torah itself - the very purpose of Creation - was not given to man until 2448 years after Creation. That God sees fit to delay is not cause for despair (Siach Yitzchak)."

Don't Complain! Everything is Great

"Whoever partners with Hashem in his pain" means somebody who is concerned about Hashem's honor and keeps his problems between him and Hashem. And that person is truly great. When a great man experiences trouble or pain, he doesn't even want the ones around him to know about it. As the Chovot Halevavot said: "החסיד דאגתו בליבו וצהלתו בפניו" -The pious person keeps his worry in his heart and a smile on his face. Someone who is worried about the honor of Hashem says to himself, "I know what Hashem is doing to me is for my best; I know He loves me; I know He only wants my good. Other people may not fully understand this. I don't want them to think negatively of Him."
Everything is Great

 A man once came to his Rabbi, crying that his child was off the Derech. He said that it was so difficult to live with; it was causing Shalom Bayit problems, family problems and social problems. He asked the Rabbi, "How could Hashem do this to me? All I want is to have a normal religious family that serves Him." The Rabbi responded, "Your first mistake is that you think you are crying by yourself. Hashem is crying with you. As the Pasuk says: "רחל מבכה על בניה מאנה להנחם על בניה כי איננו"-Rachel is a reference to the Shecinah, and she is crying because Her children are lost. Furthermore, when we cry for our children, we have a personal interest. Our image, reputation and peace of mind are at stake. But when Hashem cries, it's a pure and selfless cry. He cries because He truly cares."

Hashem cares so much about our wellbeing, and it is incumbent upon us to care about Him as well. The greatest level we could reach is when we start being concerned about Hashem's honor. The Gemara says in Masechet Berachot: "כל המשתף שם שמים בצערו, כופלים לו מזונותיו"-Whoever partners with Hashem when he is in pain, receives double Parnasa. What does it mean to make Hashem our partner when we are in pain? Says the Nefesh HaChaim, when a Jew is in pain and he complains, it could very well cause a Chilul Hashem. If a child walks around complaining, and he has a father who could help, but doesn't, it will cause the father a great deal of shame. People will tell him, "Your son is begging me for help, and you're a millionaire? Why aren't you helping him?" or "Your son is sick, and you're the best doctor. Why don't you treat him already?" Hashem has all the money in the world and He is the רופא חולים-the healer of the sick. If a Jew is struggling and complains to everyone about it, and they feel bad for him, they might start questioning why Hashem is not helping him. We know that Hashem is helping. He is doing exactly what is necessary for the person to be successful. But not everyone understands this.

"Whoever partners with Hashem in his pain" means somebody who is concerned about Hashem's honor and keeps his problems between him and Hashem. And that person is truly great. When a great man experiences trouble or pain, he doesn't even want the ones around him to know about it. As the Chovot Halevavot said: "החסיד דאגתו בליבו וצהלתו בפניו" -The pious person keeps his worry in his heart and a smile on his face. Someone who is worried about the honor of Hashem says to himself, "I know what Hashem is doing to me is for my best; I know He loves me; I know He only wants my good. Other people may not fully understand this. I don't want them to think negatively of Him."

The first step is to have real belief in Hashem's goodness. Then we can act on this and always be happy. Everyone has different tests and challenges. It's so valuable to trust that Hashem knows what He is doing. A man came to Rabbi Lugassi complaining about all of his problems. He mentioned that because of what he is going through, he can't learn as much Torah as he used to and can't do as much Chesed as he used to. He asked the Rabbi, "Why would Hashem do something to me that would limit my service to Him? Doesn't He want me to serve Him?" The Rabbi responded, "If you stop complaining and accept that this is the life that Hashem wants you to live right now, that is greater than any other service that you could possibly do for Him. This is an Avoda in itself, and not just any Avoda, but a tremendous Avoda.

Don't complain. Be happy with what Hashem wants for us. Be concerned with His honor. Even if we are not on a level inwardly to feel Hashem's goodness, we should at least show it on the outside. Tell people "Baruch Hashem, everything is great." Of course if someone needs advice or Chizuk, they can tell individuals what is bothering them. Of course in prayer we tell Hashem everything that bothers us. But to everybody else, we smile and say "Baruch Hashem, everything is great."

Rabbi Pinchas Winston Answers Beautifully

Question: 
We are taught that a husband is obligated to give a get to his wife if she desires to live in Eretz Yisroel and he does not wish to  - if we are also told that Shalom Bayis is more important - then why did the Sages say a get should be given?

Answer:
During times of the Bais HaMikdosh when spiritual purity was possible, it was not right for a man to impose the spiritual impurity of Chutz L’Aretz on his wife. 
"If your desires are not  materializing, then your hashgochah pratis has placed you there [in your situation], and you have to work with it, not against it." 
                         Rabbi Pinchas Winston, שליט"א
