People Are Noticing

Even people just looking at the daily Storm Chaser photos are realizing something is not quite right... seeing the same monster cloud formation on a daily basis.  They don't know what is going on but they are noticing.

So Many Sinners, How Can Moshiach Come?

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come. [Joel 3:4]  

The full moon two nights ago, not exactly "blood" - but orange with a pink aura is good too.



Question:
Can the Moshiach come in our time, even though there are people who have not yet repented and don't keep the Torah?

Answer:
Regarding the coming of the Redemption, our sages taught: “This matter depends only on repentance.” Maimonides likewise writes that “The Torah has promised that the Jewish people will ultimately repent at the end of their exile, and will immediately be redeemed.” However, the Redemption will not be delayed even if this condition is not fulfilled. There are three reasons for this:

1) There is no one who has not had at least one thought of repentance at least a few times in the course of his life. Even one such thought can transform a person from an utter rasha to a perfect tzaddik.

2) Many of those who do not keep the Torah and its commandments were not raised in observant homes, and have not had the benefit of a comprehensive Jewish education. As such, they have the halachic status of victims of duress, and the Torah exonerates them for their lack of observance.

3) The Redemption will come even before the Jewish people repent. It is written in Psalms, “And He will redeem Israel from all its sins.” Commentators explain, “Even sin will not obstruct the Redemption, for He will redeem Israel from sin.”

G-d is merciful and overlooks transgressions, as described in the verse: “Who is a G-d like You, Who pardons iniquity, and forgives the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not maintain His anger forever, for He delights in mercy.”

Rabbi David Kimche comments on this verse: “As to those people who remain when the Redeemer comes..... even though their unworthy deeds could make them liable for the punishment of not being redeemed from exile, G-d will not direct attention forever to their deeds, for He delights in mercy.”

[From Exile to Redemption, pp. 128-29. Sicha of Parshat Vayechi 5751. Shabbos 68b. Bava Kama 28b. Tehillim 130:8. Meztudas David, loc. cit. Michah 7:18]

Hints Galore

Hot on the heels of "Leaving the World Behind" with all it's hidden messages, comes "The Colour Purple" released in the US on December 25.  The plot of the movie is not relevant, it's the title and the publicity it's generating that is the hint.  The colour purple is of course the colour of Royalty, to match the purple skies we are seeing.  

There's also a ton of memes going around about the fact that the last date of this year is 12.31.23 which, when written without the dots reads 123 123 - a sign that we are counting down to something new.  

It's not just us [Geula watchers] who are noticing all this.  Many spiritually minded people have picked up on all these hints and they are out in force trying to get their message across to whoever sees their social media posts.

I'm expecting a massive light show on New Year's Eve, but not from the fireworks, I think Hashem will be providing His own fireworks, to match the ones we saw here over Xmas. "The awful conditions that have plagued eastern Australia are set to ease – but not for long with meteorologists warning of New Year weather drama."  [News]  Sydney is always the first up with the NY's Eve fireworks, supposedly watched by millions around the world via TV or internet. Maybe this year we'll all get something to remember !

Bondi Beach

 Napisiti over Bondi Beach right now.

    Massive.



The Ultra Light Show #2

A couple of short videos of the lightning on the night of the 25th in the Gold Coast, Queensland.  We've seen this lightning here in Sydney as well. It's non-stop flashing lights.    In the second one, suddenly it all turns pink for a moment.




Through Our Own Efforts



Surely, if Yaakov would have indeed revealed the time of Moshiach's coming to his children [Vayechi 49:1], they would have been totally devastated to hear that they had so long to wait.

When Yaakov's sons would hear that Moshiach was not scheduled to come for a long time, they would have realized that some considerable additional effort was needed to bring him sooner - as the Talmud states that through additional merit the Redemption comes earlier [Sandhedrin 98a].  Thus, Yaakov hoped that by revealing that ''the End of Days'' was a long way off, it would motivate his children to add substantially in Divine Service, so as to bring Moshiach sooner.

Nevertheless, despite his good intentions ''the Shechinah departed from him'' and Yaakov found himself unable to reveal the ''End of Days''.  For, ultimately, God wants us to bring Moshiach through our own efforts, and not through the assistance of ''revelations'' from Above.

The Ultra Light and Sound Show

As I type this I can still hear thunder rumbling in the distance.  We've had these incredible storms for days now, it's a storm watcher's dream [or nightmare, depending on the damage inflicted].  I have to say that the thunder over the last two nights was SO LOUD it even terrified me. One giant crash of noise and everyone got the shock of their lives!  Hashem is waking us up and it's magnificent and really scary at the same time.  It's like Hashem is telling people that if they want a light show for Xmas, they're going to get a light show like they've never seen before!  

Flooded airports, flights cancelled, cars destroyed by giant hail as big as your hand, Bondi Beach steps turned into a waterfall, massive amounts of water coming down.  None of this is normal and for those of you who have seen my previous photos, you can see from these photos that the planets are causing all this.  All of these photos are from the east coast of Australia over the last two days.

That's a planet, always planets when it's purple - you can see the outline
of the sphere and the vertical stripes

Purple lighting Queensland

Giant spiked hail

Base clouds of Napisiti - the darker blue is the sphere shape of the planet, and 
the lighter blue is the sky. 

Napisiti

Napisiti again

This is a planet /or moon over the row of shops, the thick white
clouds are cloaking it, they are not Earth clouds

Here you can see part of the base clouds of Napisiti, and overlapping it is another planet, the bulk of Napisiti is behind this sphere. with the light in the centre of the sphere.  These planets are huge, much larger than Earth, and even though they are still millions of miles away from us they are filling the skies. We are seeing them overlapping each other as they pass by between the Earth and the Sun.

The Last Xmas?

I have been tossing up whether or not to blog this, but because it's driving me crazy, I decided to blog it and get it out of my system.

I spent many years in London growing up, and at some point in time there was a band called "Wham!" who were huge in the 80's. In those days I had never even heard of the word "Moshiach" and I was very different to who I am now.   


If you are old enough to remember Wham! and the lead singer George Michael, you will know how popular and famous [sometimes infamous] he was at the time.  It is a little known fact that George Michael was actually Jewish.   In June 2008, Michael told the Los Angeles Times that his maternal grandmother was Jewish, but she married a non-Jewish man and raised her children with no knowledge of their Jewish background due to her fear during World War II.   George Michael, although a Jew, lived his entire life as a devout Xtian.

 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Michael]

George was incredibly gifted, and in an interview he said that the music would "come down" to him and he could feel it at the back of his neck when he'd got the entire thing - the music, the lyrics and the sound of the final production.  So he was sort of "given" his songs, they were meant to be.  George Michael's fame was meant to be. 

Interesting..... but that is just an introduction.

The actual point of this post is to bring to your attention that a song [written by George Michael] that was released by Wham! in 1984 has, in 2023, gone to the No. 1 spot on the British pop charts.  That song is called "Last Xmas".

George Michael died in 2016, on Xmas day actually.  Seven years later, his Xmas song is No. 1, 39 years after it was first released.

Last Xmas.... is this a sign that it is actually The Last Xmas ever ?

I think it is.

Will Mashiach Come This Year?

Rabbi Efraim Palvanov 

Biblical texts speak of a new star appearing in the night sky to herald the coming of the Messiah. Scientists predict that such a “star” may indeed appear later this year – could it be the long-awaited “Star of Jacob”? And how does this tie in with other ancient prophecies about the End of Days, and major events happening around the globe today?


Perfect Health When Moshiach Comes

Rabbi Zalman Goldberg - 4 minutes

 

Why is illness so rampant in the world now? How does Hashem plan to remove that with the coming of Moshiach? Listen to this eye-opening (pun intended) shiur and learn!

A Message from Naomi

 

"Honestly, girls, with my whole heart...of one thing I'm certain: We are close to the Redemption in a way we've never been close to the Geula before."

 
That is a quote from Myrtle Rising's post "A Heartbreaking Afterlife Message & Plea from Naomi, a Young Woman Murdered during the Invasion from Gaza"

You need to fully believe this dream and this message.  I myself have had dreams from family members who have passed, and there is always a message from them.  This one at Myrtle Rising's blog is something all women need to read.  It's a message for the women, and the girls.  

No-one is being blamed here.  No-one is being judged.  

It's not easy for a neshama to come down to someone in a dream, if it was so easy it would be happening all the time. We need to pay attention.

When you read it, I want you to think of something.  The hostages who were captured were dressed by their captors in muslim attire.  They were covered up. I heard a released hostage mention that. We all know that the muslims cover themselves modestly [generally speaking]. I don't think I need to say any more.

The Reason We Think Moshiach is VERY CLOSE

Maya Namdar lost her daughter Liel a"h, her 15-year-old daughter who passed away in a car accident in December 2021. In this episode, Maya and Charlene talk about the war in Israel, moving on from pain and the coming of Messiah.



 

Purple Lightning

We had some amazing lightning last night, and you could see it from very far away - it was so intense and lit up the entire sky. Here on the east coast of Australia we are seeing these things pass by regularly now.  I just love sitting outside and watching it happen.

One thing I have noticed, before the lightning reaches us, there is a very powerful wind which is a sign that the planets are passing by.  This wind is followed by the lightning and thunder, and often giant hail.

Here are a couple of photos showing the purple skies and the lightning.  



After reading Annie's comment below, I clicked on a news item and there was this photo of King Charles III dressed in a purple robe.  It'a a sign!  I've never seen him wear a purple robe before, just a coincidence, except we don't believe in coincidences.  Coincidences are Hashem's way of staying anoymous.  And just in case you think I'm making this up, here's a link to the news item in today's news:

Greater than Yosef HaTzaddik

 

by Rabbi David Chananya Pinto

“And now, be not distressed, nor reproach yourselves for having sold me here” [Vayigash 45:5]

A story brought in the holy Zohar on Parshat Mikeitz shows the great merit of a person who overlooks personal affront. 

Rav Abba was sitting at the entrance to Lod when he noticed a tired man who sat down on a boulder that jutted out from the side of the mountain and soon fell asleep. While he was still asleep, a poisonous snake made his way over to the sleeping man. Suddenly a branch from a tree broke off and fell directly on the snake, killing it instantly. When the man awoke he noticed the dead snake lying next to him. He got up and started walking away and just then the boulder he had lain on broke away from the mountain and rolled down to the valley below. Once again he was miraculously saved from death. 

Rav Abba was most impressed by the sight of these miracles he had just witnessed. Rav Abba approached the man and asked him: 

“Please tell me, what good deeds do you possess that Hashem performed two open miracles for you? He saved you from the snake’s poisonous bite and from tumbling to certain death.” 

He replied: “It never happened to me that someone harmed me and I wasn’t appeased. I always forgave him and never held on to anger for any bad that was directed my way. Not only did I forgive, but from that day on, I tried to perform acts of kindness to those who tried to annoy me.” 

When Rav Abba heard these words he cried and said: “The deeds of this man are greater than those of Yosef HaTzaddik. Concerning Yosef, those who caused him suffering were his own brothers; he had to have mercy on them. But this person behaved in this manner with every single person, therefore it is fitting that Hashem perform many miracles for him.

As you may be aware, many Israelis are unable to earn any money at the moment due to the war.  So it seems like a good time to advertise this children's book which was written and illustrated by a  a talented 21 year old Israeli Ashira Sekel and is for sale on Amazon.


If you have children in your life, this is a great way to buy them a gift and do the mitzvah of giving tzedaka at the same time.

Zot Chanukah



Text: Rav Nissim Makor


The last day, Zot Chanukah, is one of the most powerful days of the year. 

The Admor from Ruzhhin teaches, that what a simple man can accomplish on the 8th day of Chanukah, even great Tzadikkim cannot accomplish with their Tefilah during Neilah of Yom Kippur. 

What is so special about the 8th day of Chanukah? 

On Rosh Hashanah we are judged, on Yom Kippur the judgement is sealed and on Hoshana Raba it is delivered. We still have one chance to change things until the 8th day on Chanukah., after which everything is final and the decrees start to be carried out. (The judgement process is 122 days long). 

The last days of Chanukah are the antidote to the heaviness of this month. The Chanukah lights can repair our spiritual vision, letting us see the blessings we have. Therefore, it is a very special day to beg Hashem for mercy for all that we need, and that we should have only good decrees upon us. 

Remember, Zot Chanukah is a day above nature and certainly a day of miracles!!! Take advantage of this special day. Don’t let it just come and go. Use it!!!!

Leaving the World Behind

So the Obamas are the Executive Producers of a Netflix movie called "Leave the World Behind".  I only watched it for research purposes.... it was not a good movie in any sense of the word.  However, it is very interesting because Obama reportedly had a lot to say - he sent "a lot of notes" to the director.

Unsurprisingly, it's about the End of the World.... but at no stage does the movie tell us exactly how the world will actually end.  

But.... there is a hint in the clothing worn by the two children


Obey NASA.

Oh please, NASA has been lying to us for so long !  We have an entire solar system passing us by, it is the greatest show on earth for those who are seeing the daily uploaded images from around the world.

"They" are getting the world ready for some big events. [but their expectations and the reality of what Hashem has in store are two very different things]

Here is a sample of what you are missing if you are not part of the sky watching crowd. I've left some of the info on the photos so you can see these people don't even realize what they are photographing. Both of these images show a planet extremely close to Earth.  





There is no need to be scared, even if the Obama-produced movie wants us all to be terrified....  the planets are not going to crash into us, but big things are going to happen, there's no doubt about that in my mind anyway.

"Not By Chance"

New Argentinian President Javier Milei, says it is not by chance that he was sworn in during the festival of Chanukah, the Festival of Light.  Rabbi Berel Solomon says this is a sign before Moshiach. 



The Hidden Greatness of Yosef



וַיִּקְרָא פַרְעֹה שֵׁם יוֹסֵף צָפְנַת פַּעְנֵחַ
And Pharaoh named Joseph "Tzafnat Pa'neach" [Mikeitz 41:45]

Rashi explains: "Tzafnat Pa'neach - mepharesh hatzefunos [decipherer of the cryptic]"

If that is the meaning of Yosef's title, asked the Sefas Emes [R' Yehudah Leib Alter of Gur], then would it not have been more appropriate to reverse the order of the words and refer to him as "Paneach tzefunos"?

Yosef, answered the Sefas Emes, merited his unique ability to reveal that which was concealed on account of the fact that he acted with extreme modesty, always concealing his own righteousness from the eyes of others.

It is for this reason, he concluded, that he was referred to as Tzafnat Pa'neach. Tzafnat - because he went to great lengths to hide his greatness ["tzafnat" - the hidden one], "paneach" - he merited to decipher hidden matters.

Chanukah Segulot

Art: Michoel Muchnik


It is considered important to sit opposite the lit Hanukkah candles for a full half hour after lighting and to look at the flames. This action is regarded as a Segula for the healing of one’s soul and one’s fears. It is related that the light of the Hanukkah candles is connected to the light that G-d created at the time of creation that was hidden away and will be revealed only at the End of Days - because this unique light was created before the idea of fear was brought in to the world, looking into the Hanukkah lights is supposed to alleviate fears.

Rabbi Yair Chaim Bacharach (1639-1702) promised that women who sit by the Hanukkah candles for a half hour will merit peace of mind for the entire year, a rare commodity in our days…

It is also related that the very first half hour of when the Hanukkah candles burn is considered an especially auspicious time for prayer - the angels are believed to sit above the candles and take the prayers directly up to Heaven.

The Slonimer Rebbe wrote that for those who have seen immodest sights- which is unfortunately almost unavoidable today - looking in to the flames of the Hanukkah candles erases those images from one’s memory.

It is considered important to use olive oil when lighting the Menorah, as olive oil is known for blessing the user with a good memory, wisdom and children who will rise above others in their wisdom in the same way that the olive oil floats above the water.

The Rabbi of Rodzin explained that there is a tremendous Segula on the eighth night of Hanukkah for those wanting an easy childbirth or children. He said that the things that the most righteous could not get granted at Neilah on Yom Kippur can be asked for by the simpleton on the eighth night of Hanukkah. Those who wish to be blessed with children should recite the verse from Psalms 80 that reads, “G-d of Hosts, return, we beseech You, look from the heaven and behold be mindful of this vine.” The vine is in reference to the woman who wishes to be as fruitful as a vine.

The True Essence of Chanukah

New shiur from Rabbi Mendel Kessin


'Anyone who hates Israel is considered to be like Amalek'

 

'We have a lot of enemies, but the accepted name for Amalek today is Hamas,' says Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh. 

Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh, dean of the Od Yosef Chai yeshiva in Yitzhar, spoke at a special gathering about the war with Hamas. 

"According to the simple explanation, there is no longer this nation, Amalek. But halakha (Jewish law - ed. says that anyone who hates Israel and wants to destroy the Jewish nation is considered Amalek," Rabbi Ginsburgh said. "This is how the Brisker Rav ruled." 

Amalek, he said, "changes its name. In the previous generation, it was not called Amalek, it was called, 'Nazi.' Now, with us, we have a lot of enemies, but the accepted name for Amalek today is really Hamas."

He added in that in gematriya - a system which gives numeric value to each Hebrew letter - the word, "Hamas," is equal to the words, "v'ani evtach bach," which translate to, "I will trust in You." 

"Therefore, now, we will sing this even more powerfully than before - 'v'ani evtach bach,' and each person who says these words eliminates one Hamas terrorist," he said. 

"From everything we have said now, we can create an operation - especially for the soldiers, who will sing, 'v'ani evtach bach,' with the simple intention - they can fulfill it while singing." 

Rabbi Ginsburgh added, "If you are a yeshiva dean or give Torah classes, when you say, 'v'ani evtach bach,' you need to kill one of the leaders of Hamas. But sometimes it's just luck that even a simple person will score a direct hit on the leader of Hamas, of the snake."

Judging Others



 וַיְהִי אַחַר הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה  - And it came about, after these words....  [Vayeishev 40:1]


The "words" that are referred to here are those of Potifar's wife, who bad-mouthed Yosef throughout Egypt.

From the actions of Potifar's wife, we can learn a powerful lesson about judging other people:

At first glance, Potifar's wife's actions appear to have been utterly evil.  Not only did she cause Yosef to be sent to prison, but furthermore, she spoke badly of him so that his name was blackened throughout Egypt.

Rashi however enlightens us to the truth, that even these actions were intended for the sake of Heaven! Despite the fact that she was brought up in the corrupt, idolatrous atmosphere of Egypt her intentions were pure, to the extent that our sages compared her to Tamar, the mother of "strong ones and righteous ones" [Rashi]. 

From this we can learn the importance of not judging other people by their first appearances.

Whatever is Supposed to Happen, Will Happen

Rabbi Alon Anava

How to have bitachon, complete faith in G-d, and no fear.

Paving the Way for Moshiach

Art: Dena Ackerman



Based on Sichos Shabbos Parshat Vayeishev 5751 Lubavitcher Rebbe


Rashi explains the simple reason why the Torah begins to speak of Yehudah in the middle of the story of Yosef.  ''To teach us that [Yehudah's] brothers demoted him from his high position.''

However, Rashi does not explain why the entire account of Yehudah and Tamar was recorded here, leading up to the birth of Peretz and Zarach.

However, according to the explanation of the Midrash, we can understand that the account of Yehudah and Tamar was included here to explain the reason why Yosef was sold : because G-d was paving the way for Moshiach.

Thus, before we read of Yosef's enslavement, and the ensuing Egyptian exile, the Torah prefaces ''the cure before the disease'' informing us of G-d's inner intent.

The Middle East War & The True Task of a Non Jew: Part 1

Rabbi Mendel Kessin


Closer and Closer

Yesterday we had another gigantic storm, the afternoon turned pitch black [it was about 4 in the afternoon] and we had purple skies and purple lightning.  The blackness was because the sun was completely blocked out by the planet Napisiti, which you can see in the second video below.  I've shown you Napisiti many times before, click here for one of recent posts  and you'll be able to see it is the same.  

At this point, I don't really care if you believe in these planets passing us by.... or not... I just cannot ignore this stuff, and it needs to be documented.  Soon enough everyone will wake up to this and realize that these "clouds" are not just clouds.

They are getting closer and closer, and we are seeing them more frequently, things are really speeding up right now.  Believe it or not, big things are on the horizon, no doubt in my mind anyway.




Mamash - Angels !



"And Yaakov sent angels ahead of him to Eisav" [Vayishlach 32:4]


Rashi comments: "And Yaakov sent angels -  literally [mamash] angels".

R'Meir of Premishlan explained Rashi's words with the Mishnah in Pirkei Avos [4:13] : "He who fulfills one mitzvah gains one advocate for himself". When an individual performs a mitzvah, he creates an angel that speaks favorably on his behalf in Heaven.

The verse tells us that Yaakov sent angels as messengers to Eisav. Which angels did Yaakov send? Those angels that had been created through the mitzvos that he had performed.

This is what Rashi is alluding to when he says: "mamash angels".  For "mamash" is the acronym of the words "malachim me'mitzvos sheásah" ["angels from the mitzvos he performed"].

A Message for Eisav




by Rabbi David Hanania Pinto

"And he said, "If Eisav comes to one camp and strikes it down, the remaining camp will escape."
 וַיֹּ֕אמֶר אִם־יָב֥וֹא עֵשָׂ֛ו אֶל־הַמַּֽחֲנֶ֥ה הָאַחַ֖ת וְהִכָּ֑הוּ וְהָיָ֛ה הַמַּֽחֲנֶ֥ה הַנִּשְׁאָ֖ר לִפְלֵיטָֽה  [Vayishlach 32:9]

Take a look at the word in the Torah "והכהו" - ''strikes it down''.   Whether we read it forwards or backwards, it is the same word.

There is a great message here, as is found in the Sefer Da'at Chachamim. Every blow, every wound that the gentiles inflict on Am Yisroel, will eventually rebound and hit them back in the face.

The Message of the Letter Nun

Did you read Tomer Devorah's post about the number 50?  The letter Nun is the number 50.
I remembered I did have a post about the letter Nun, although I hadn't published it, it was there waiting as a draft.   Here it is.  


The 14th letter of the Hebrew alphabet: the letter Nun represents miracles.

"It is written in the Gemara [Berachot 57a] that one who sees Huna in a dream will have a miracle happen to him. If he sees Chanina, Chananya, Yochanan, or Nisi, many miracles will occur. However, this applies only if he sees these names in writing. Rashi explains that all these names contain the letter nun, the first letter of the word -- miracle." [Source]

By focusing on the letter Nun, it can bring you from a state of darkness to a state of joy, and to see miracles.

Perhaps we can explain this based on the Gemara in Berachot [57a] which says that one who sees the names "Chanina, Chananiah, or Yochanan" in a dream - "nisei nisim" (wondrous miracles) were done for him. 

Rashi explains that all of them have a double nun, alluding to "nisei nisim," many miracles. The Maharsha explains differently, however, that a name defines a person, and all of these names have either a yud-hey or yud-vav and the letters "chen." The base of these names, therefore, is that the person finds "chen" (grace) in the eyes of Hashem. 

All of these people recognize even in natural, mundane events the goodness of Hashem. The Ramban at the end of parshat Bo [Shemot 13:16] says that a person does not have a share in the Torah of Moshe Rabbeinu unless he believes that everything is a miracle. We say three times a day, "for your miracles that are with us every day." [Rabbi Y. M. Schachter]

Who was the real Jacob and what was his true destiny? What is the link between Esau and King David? Why did Jacob buy Esau’s birthright, and trick him out of their father’s blessing?

Today's Random Items


Here are some photos which may convince you that something huge is occurring in the Heavens and I truly believe Hashem is preparing the world for major events.  Don't ask me technical questions, I have no answers, these are planets, halfway between the Sun and the Earth. Very close... if you believe NASA's measurements they are still 46 million miles away.

The first two photos are from today's batch... the remainder are some I have kept on hand from weeks or months ago.  These are all planets, each has unique clouds and colours.

This is the planet Atu, which has a base they are calling a "snail's foot"

This is the reason why we have weather conditions like this:








And these are just a couple of videos I thought worth sharing:

The first one is author  Douglas Murray speaking, and the second one is native New Zealanders [Maoris] doing a Haka for the Israeli hostages.. we need these guys on the front line.... thank you to the Maori [pronounced Mow-ri] people for supporting Israel.

Rachel and Leah


This week's Parsha Vayeitze is the Parsha of the week I was born.

Is there any personal significance to the Parsha of the week you were born? Find out here.

Vision of Rachel and Leah: Dante Gabriel Rossetti


Lavan had two daughters, the older was was called Leah, and the younger one was called Rachel.
[Vayeitze 29:16]

Rachel represents the approach of tzadikim whose lives are totally holy; and Leah represents the approach of ba'alei teshuvah (penitents) who elevate the secular world to holiness.

Thus, Rachel was naturally attractive: "Rachel had beautiful features and a beautiful complexion" like the tzaddik whose character is flawless; whereas Leah cried profusely, alluding to the process of teshuvah. She was also naturally outgoing, a talent which helps a person to bring the outside world to the realm of holiness.

"Yaakov was an honest person, dwelling in tents" [Toldos 25:27]-  i.e. he busied himself only with matters of holiness - the approach of tzaddikim.  Therefore, people said that Yaakov was destined for Rachel, since their characters matched.  Eisav, on the other hand, was an outgoing "man of the field". Therefore people said that he would be a good match for Leah, for only the talented, outgoing Leah would have the ability to make Eisav do teshuvah.

G-d Floods Gaza Tunnels

H/T Joe

Now we can see the passing binary solar system in action, over Gaza.  Hashem has used it to flood the tunnels, which the IDF were planning to do anyway.  Hashem did it for them.  I just hope the Israeli hostages are not caught up in the flooding.  As we are in the month of Kislev, which is a month of miracles, let us pray that they come home safely.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, all my posts on the passing solar system can be found by clicking on the Label Wonders underneath this post.

An Enemy of the Jewish People

Following Obama's recent comments on Israel [which I couldn't even listen to because just looking at this man makes me feel ill], Alan Dershowitz calls him despicable and "an enemy of the Jewish people".  I told you this back in 2008 and again in 2011, 2014, and most recently 2023.

Yishmael vs Edom - Iran vs USA

How to be Saved !

 Rabbi Yuval Ovadia spells it out in this video.



From the Zohar [from around 12:30 in the video] - note, I'm mostly quoting Rabbi Ovadia, but have changed some words and added a couple of things to clarify.  Please listen to the shiur to hear his exact words.

"A star with seven moons - a mini solar system in fact - will appear."   [To see all the posts I've done on this "mini solar system" click here]

This is the Kochav Yaakov, although Rabbi Ovadia calls it the Star of David.
Some people call it Nibiru, but there's a whole other theory that Nibiru is just a blue planet, so let's just call it the Kochav Yaakov.
The appearance of this star will be parallel to the revelation of Moshiach.

Although nothing is for sure until it happens, the rise of the jihadists around the world could lead to a war between them and the gentile nations - between Yishmael and Eisav.  Maybe Korea or China will wage war against a xtian country.  During this war, the Star shows up, causing the destruction of many places on earth.

How can we be saved?  The Prophet says anyone who will call out for salvation from the Almighty will be saved.  So many were saved during the massacre of October 7 because they called out to Hashem. These were secular Jews, not religious, and they called Shema Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Echad - they just said this "Jewish Password", the first line of the Shema, and were literally saved!

He tells an amazing story of how a Jewish family were saved by this Jewish password, around the 15 minute mark, but I do suggest you listen to the entire shiur.

Details of this War: The Start and The End

 HT: Dov bar Leib 

This is Rabbi Eliyahu and Rabbi Shalom, it's in Hebrew but there is a transcript underneath which I deciphered thanks to Google translate.  As it turns out, Ari Goldwag is right !

"Welcome.. Welcome..." You may sit down, Your Honor! 

Rabbi Shalom asks: So, the rabbi said: On the day of Pesach, I showed the rabbi - the rabbi said that after Sukkot - the end of the world. 

So Rabbi Shalom asks: What is going to happen? How much longer is this going to last? 

The rabbi: The matter is like this: the sages said about the Haftar that we read on the holiday of Sukkot: "On the day Gog comes upon the land of Israel"... [In the prophet Ezekiel, in chapter 37, it appears and is written] "The Vision of the Dry Bones", it is written (ibid.): "Did these bones cry out"? 

And he continues and answers his question: that there is a war that will begin in Sukkot and end on Passover Eve! - 

And where is it written: Elijah the prophet said about the well-known verse: "And he said that there is a hand on the throne for the Lord to fight against Amalek from generation to generation." what day is it - On the eve of Passover, in the middle of the day The first half of the month is 14 days, the eve of Passover. "...because there is a hand on the throne...." - God will sit on his throne and this will happen on Passover Eve! In this second the world will end and there is a war that will continue from the evening of Sukkot until the eve of Passover. 

Her name will end, the light will go down. There will be a war, the nations of the world will intervene, there will be an atom (atomic bomb)! 

The Gra says: There will be three minutes (of a bomb) atomized and God will do the war... 

A question to the rabbi: So what should we do about sweetening these decrees? 
The rabbi's answer: By righteousness, by the Torah...by mercy, by mercy...! 

What will be with the captives? 

Rabbi Eliyahu Abutbol: BA will be released soon. The problem is that it will take time, what the sages said - and this is also who said... Rabbi Yonatan Eivshitz, zt'l. Have you seen his letter? 
Those present ask Rabbi Eliyahu, Shalita: What does he say? 

Rabbi Shalom, Shalita, reads the words of Rabbi Yonathan Eybshitz, zt'l: "And truly, in our many sins, the advice of Balaam happened, who said to Balak: "What will this nation do to your people in the end of days. Namely: "Acharit Yamim", which is the joy of the Torah, when in our many iniquities the devil rules, and Balaam's counsel is almost fulfilled in our many iniquities, in which the mixture of women and young men and virgins will dance like stags and foxes will dance there and a great breach will be made in our many iniquities..."! "That's what happened!!! The boys and girls went ... prohibitions on celibacy and there was also a statue (as everyone who saw the videos from that 'nature party / the Nova party' knows, God save us!!!!!! (And it happened) on Simchat Torah!!! here!!! 

The rabbis agree with Rabbi Shalom and Rabbi Eliyahu, Shalita: Yes, exactly like that!!! Rabbi Eliyahu continues and tells them: "And the owner of the 'honey forests' wrote these things about 300 years ago!!! The honorable rabbis say to Rabbi Eliyahu, Shalita: "This is the Holy Spirit, Rabbi, huh...? It's the Holy Spirit"!!! 

Rabbi Eliyahu, Shalita continues and says: This time has come! Here! Rabbi Zadok HaCohen of Lublin, zt'l, he says that the Messiah will come on the first day of Nissan! "In Nisan they will be redeemed and in Ha Nigal (in the month of Nisan)!" That's what everyone said!!! About the war of Gog and Magog - and redemption will be in Nisan in Israel! This is all proven!!! 

Rabbi Shalom and Rabbi Avraham Asulin say to Rabbi Abitbol: The soldiers walk with dedication.... Rabbi Eliyahu: "Sure, sure... they are great tzaddik!!! The Almighty will save them and they will not touch them! May they go healthy and unscathed in their war and so be it willed and we say Amen"

The Test at the End of Days



I don't remember when or where, but I clearly remember learning that at the End of Days we would be tested.  You may think the test is whether we support Israel or not.... but I think the test is far greater than that.  

Someone very close to me, who didn't know Yiddish but had picked up a few words here and there [and managed to mis-pronounce all of them] used to often say she was "fedummeled".  Fedummeled is not actually a Yiddish word, it isn't any word at all, but she would use it when she was confused and couldn't focus on anything due to stress.   That's how I feel right now.. I feel fedummeled.  

I have gone back and forth, not understanding how the G-d that I have believed and trusted in for all my life could allow such terrible things to happen to innocent babies, children and parents.  It's not something I can deal with on any level.  Hence, I am fedummeled.

But I decided that this must be the actual test.... do we abandon G-d, as many did during the Holocaust, because G-d had obviously abandoned those who awaited their death in the concentration camps?  Or do we carry on and understand that this is happening for a reason?  How can we believe in Hashem's kindness in the face of such horror that we witnessed on October 7 ?

I think this is the test at the End of Days.  It's a very difficult test, because we cannot understand why Hashem would allow any of it.  I have gone back and forth with this issue, I have no answers and no comprehension of Hashem's ways.  I thought I knew who G-d was, obviously I was under a false impression because the G-d I know would not have allowed the events of October 7.

I don't know what to make of anything right now.  What do I do with the innocent people in Gaza with no food or water, or shelter?  What do I with my heartache for all the suffering of my own people? 

I remain fedummeled. I'm not sure I'm even passing the test at the End of Days right now.  Even if I pray to G-d, I'm still shell-shocked and operating on less than 50% of my usual power. 

I know as a blogger I'm supposed to present an outward sense of strength and pass that on to my readers. I admire those bloggers [and commenters] who can do that, I admire their strength, especially if they are living in Israel. Although lately I've been thinking it's a lot harder to be a Jew in the diaspora, and I haven't gone out very much since October 7 which is already one month ago.  I've been dazed for a month, I'm confused and yes I am fedummeled.
