"Egypt" Loses Its Power Over Israel on the 15th of Nissan

14th Annual Rabinfest

If you're not Israeli, you may not be aware of what happens at this time of year. True to the schizophrenic nature of modern Israeli society, the Rabinites can not make up their minds upon which date they want to commemorate Yitzhak Rabin's assassination---the Hebrew or the Gregorian calendar date. So they begin on whichever date comes first and continue until the second.

This year, that means 11 Cheshvan (20 October) through 4 November. Enough is enough! Unless and until someone is brave enough to expose the actual truth.

Peres: I kissed Rabin goodbye

..."From the foots (sic) of Mount Sinai to the slopes of Rabin Square, one commandment stands high throughout all generations: Thou shall not kill. Thou shall not kill a person. Thou shall not kill an idea," Peres said at the start of his speech.

"The murder is a crime which must not be forgiven or forgotten. We are holding a memorial evening because we must fight forgetfulness. Such forgetfulness is the enemy of man. It's also puts democracy in danger."

Like I said..."RABINFEST." Fifteen years and still counting.


  1. [ 1] Look at the contrast. All these Jewish groups receiving bribe money from a spiritual enemy of G-D and his people,and on the other side of the coin the famous Rebbe, the author of the classic book the holy fire ,refused to take money from a Jew unless he checked him out first to make sure he was "kosher". Once the Rebbes son R. Elimelech was deathly ill and needed an operation which costed a ton of money which ofcourse the Rebbe did not have. A fellow Jew offered to pay for everything ,however, when asked by the Rebbe for his name and mothers name ,he refused!!! The Rebbe in turn refused to take the money that could have saved his sons life !!!!! [2] Re the festival ... When the wicked are destroyed... rejoice

  2. Thank you for your comment, Rav Yehuda. I did not know that story. And for those who don't know, Rav Yehuda is the rabbi who oversees the content of this blog.

  3. blessings devash. just for my own understanding as a noahide. is G-d happy when we rejoice over the fall of enemies?
    i have read He told the angels not to sing when egyptians were drowned as they are also His creations.

  4. It wasn't appropriate for the angels, but it was very appropriate for the Jews whose lives had just been saved and if you read the Song of the Sea, it becomes clear. There are also numerous such references in Tehillim.

    Perhaps Rav Yehuda will respond as well?
