Will There Be an Israeli 'Spring' in the Month of Aviv?

25 Adar Alef 5774

A revolution is coming.  I don't know if it will be this year or next, or ten years from now, but it's definitely coming. The revolutionary spirit of our founding fathers - Avraham Avinu, Moshe Rabeinu, David HaMelech, Matityahu HaChasmonai, Judah HaMaccabee, Eleazer ben Yair, etc. - runs very, very deep underground and then pops up at various junctures in history when desperately needed - in times very much like ours.

In 1949, once the goal of the other Zionisms - liberation of the homeland from foreign rule - had been accomplished, the ideological leader of Revolutionary Zionism, Israel Eldad, began to speak about what it should do to carry on until its ultimate goal - the complete redemption - could be realized.

In excerpts from Ze'ev Golan's book Stern: The Man and His Gang:

Eldad: "Don't delude yourselves into believing that a miracle will occur and the masses will stream toward us. This is an illusion, they won't come. ...we can be, under current conditions, a framework for educational work."

Eldad: "My view is the State of Israel is [no more] than the Zionist Organization with expanded authority. ...there is an army, but a strange army that cannot move forward according to its strength, only according to the dictates of American imperialism."

Golan: "Eldad knew that 'we are at the ground stage' and the time had not yet come to realize his goals."

Golan: "He rejected what passed for Zionism.... Zionism, he said, is a national liberation movement while the goal he saw before him is a uniquely Jewish one: redemption."

Golan: "Redemption, Eldad told a group of youthful followers in 1953, is itself a revolution, as was the redemption of Jews from Egypt. ...Had they (Lehi) spoken (in the formative days) of redemption (instead of liberation and revolution), the state would have been seen for what it is: one more modern tool to be used by the movement for redemption."

After 1949, Eldad felt that the group should focus on the "...transformation into a revolutionary elite...focusing on the roots of the movement for Hebrew liberation and spreading the word slowly, until such time as circumstances again favored the transformation of the ideas into deeds. ...Eldad sought to promote the biblical form of Hebrew redemption."

Golan: "The Jewish declaration that God created the world means history has a beginning, an order, and an intention. God is called the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Who chose the Jews as His people. Eldad said the benefits of Jewish sovereignty cannot be won as long as Jews do not know who they are and what they seek."

The seeds of Revolutionary Zionism lie dormant in the Jewish psyche for they are the dreams, the hopes, the prayers of two thousand years.  In the minds and hearts of "a revolutionary elite" of whom Eldad spoke, they have sprouted anew. 

Our task until then is to spread this Jewish Idea through information and education - to prepare fertile soil  in the hearts and minds of all true Jews for the full bloom of revolutionary redemption, in OUR time!

When Mashiach finally arrives and shouts "Mi l'Hashem Elai!!" there will be no stumbling, no hesitation. For this is the very reason our long-awaited redemption has been delayed. How can Hashem send us a redeemer if there is no one prepared to follow him?

A revolution is coming.  I don't know if it will be this year or next, or ten years from now, but it's definitely - absolutely -  coming.

  1. Praying, as there are many indications from our Sages, and the way history is moving so fast, that the Geulah will come very soon. May it be! With every passing day, the world is getting more and more dangerous, everywhere. The signs are here!

  2. until all the gedolim with their Haredi parties will quit the Knesset
    it's for the show. They gonna put people on the streets for easy pray of goiym military but at the end of the day will make more deals in knesset for their bank accounts. Please learn from the past, who is true leader. When gzira fell on Jews in Persia, Ester Hamalka said, that I will fast and tell all the people tofast. So the starting point of this conflict is they have to quit that Erev Rav government first, until then, as stated abive it's all the show.

  3. Yes, Anonymous, "it's for the show." It's an opportunity for the rank and file of sincere, true Jews to take a public stand and show Hashem which side they are on and this could influence a major shift in Shamayim. The "show" may be meant for politics, but the Show will bring us closer to redemption.

    Without mesirut nefesh there is no redemption. If we don't offer it willingly, we will be forced into it.

  4. Yes, offer this mesirut nefesh by giving up your Toda Tzeut and state openly that you do not want to leave in the corporation (country)of lies and BS but you want to be govern by Torah laws. as you know this country owns by Mr. Rotchild and Co. so as it states in Tehilim 1 "The praises of a man are that he did not follow the counsel of the wicked, neither did he stand in the way of sinners nor sit in the company of scorners." So ask yourself a question what are they doing in Knesset beside having some deals and benefits. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzRBSxJZRzA
    Looks like those Yesha councels during Gush kativ time =,as they were leading people along the desert while the settlers were thrown from their homes meantime.

  8. Please share with us how you manage to live without your teudat zehut. How do your kids manage? How do you obtain medical care? How do you have a job? I'm just curious. I might publicly burn my teudat zehut on principle and suffer the consequences, but I wouldn't tell someone else to get rid of theirs.
