July the 11th.
11-7-11 = 29
2+9 = 11.

Yosef ha Tzadik was the 11th son of Yaacov. Yosef was also hidden from his brothers.

The light is being separated from the darkness.The cosmic struggle of the hidden light being revealed is steadily reaching its climax.

The Chazal teach from Yeshayahu that the "far away islands" will be the first to witness the light of redemption. It is extraordinary that the first part of the world to receive the dawn of day is the Pacific rim according to the international dateline.It is also remarkable that the superpowers of the day chose the Pacific as the IDL for geopolitical reasons considering that time was measured according to Greenwich mean time outside of London.
This proves that HaShem rules the affairs of mankind.

Yeshayahu / Isaiah 41 v 1-5

א הַחֲרִישׁוּ אֵלַי אִיִּים, וּלְאֻמִּים יַחֲלִיפוּ כֹחַ; יִגְּשׁוּ אָז יְדַבֵּרוּ, יַחְדָּו לַמִּשְׁפָּט נִקְרָבָה. 1 Keep silence before Me, O islands, and let the peoples renew their strength; let them draw near, then let them speak; let us come near together to judgment.
ב מִי הֵעִיר מִמִּזְרָח, צֶדֶק יִקְרָאֵהוּ לְרַגְלוֹ; יִתֵּן לְפָנָיו גּוֹיִם, וּמְלָכִים יַרְדְּ--יִתֵּן כֶּעָפָר חַרְבּוֹ, כְּקַשׁ נִדָּף קַשְׁתּוֹ. 2 Who hath raised up one from the east, at whose steps victory attendeth? He giveth nations before him, and maketh him rule over kings; his sword maketh them as the dust, his bow as the driven stubble.
ג יִרְדְּפֵם, יַעֲבוֹר שָׁלוֹם; אֹרַח בְּרַגְלָיו, לֹא יָבוֹא. 3 He pursueth them, and passeth on safely; the way with his feet he treadeth not.
ד מִי-פָעַל וְעָשָׂה, קֹרֵא הַדֹּרוֹת מֵרֹאשׁ: אֲנִי יְהוָה רִאשׁוֹן, וְאֶת-אַחֲרֹנִים אֲנִי-הוּא. 4 Who hath wrought and done it? He that called the generations from the beginning. I, the LORD, who am the first, and with the last am the same.
ה רָאוּ אִיִּים וְיִרָאוּ, קְצוֹת הָאָרֶץ יֶחֱרָדוּ; קָרְבוּ, וַיֶּאֱתָיוּן. 5 The isles saw, and feared; the ends of the earth trembled; they drew near, and came.

5771, being a leap year, Tamuz is the 11th month.

July 11 is the 9th Tamuz.

Interesting comment Devorah.

According to Yirmeyahu chap 39 v 2 in the "11th" year reign of Tzdikiyahu, the walls were breached on the 9th day of Tammuz, the fourth month:

ב בְּעַשְׁתֵּי-עֶשְׂרֵה שָׁנָה לְצִדְקִיָּהוּ, בַּחֹדֶשׁ הָרְבִיעִי בְּתִשְׁעָה לַחֹדֶשׁ, הָבְקְעָה, הָעִיר. 2 in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, a breach was made in the city--

and again in Yirmeyahu chap 52:

ו בַּחֹדֶשׁ הָרְבִיעִי בְּתִשְׁעָה לַחֹדֶשׁ, וַיֶּחֱזַק הָרָעָב בָּעִיר; וְלֹא-הָיָה לֶחֶם, לְעַם הָאָרֶץ. 6 In the fourth month, in the ninth day of the month, the famine was sore in the city, so that there was no bread for the people of the land.
ז וַתִּבָּקַע הָעִיר, וְכָל-אַנְשֵׁי הַמִּלְחָמָה יִבְרְחוּ וַיֵּצְאוּ מֵהָעִיר לַיְלָה דֶּרֶךְ שַׁעַר בֵּין-הַחֹמֹתַיִם אֲשֶׁר עַל-גַּן הַמֶּלֶךְ, וְכַשְׂדִּים עַל-הָעִיר, סָבִיב; וַיֵּלְכוּ, דֶּרֶךְ הָעֲרָבָה. 7 Then a breach was made in the city, and all the men of war fled, and went forth out of the city by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, which was by the king's garden--now the Chaldeans were against the city round about--and they went by the way of the Arabah.

It's also the 11th year since 5760 - the year the Hesed La'alafim and Galya Raza mention as a geula date.

er... I meant Hesed Le'avraham.

Devorah: Personally, the music is pleasant, but, for some reason, the embedded video is most effective on low volume.

Joe: em, did you hear about how Mindanao to the south of Filipinim ended up not seceding from the archipelago (after years of domestic strife), in essence, achieving "peace" that Israel has longed for all these generations? Seems like all the nations are too preoccupied with coveting what will never be theirs to care. There are three islands allocated to Jews, in a sense, courtesy of President Emmanuel Luis Quezón ý Molina 3 {not yet officially inducted inn the Righteous of the Nations, but according special privileges to Filipinim, such as complimentary Visas, besides a Memorial Somewhere in Israel}: Marikina, Manila, and Mindanao. The 3 Em's, I suppose. From my novice perspective, these are potential candidates for the yet to be designated 3 Refuge Cities of Israel.
