"According to the Effort Is the Reward"

24 Adar 5780
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashat Vaykhel-Pekudei
Shabbat HaChodesh - Mevorchim

Imagine what a massive effort was required to build the Mishkan and prepare all its furnishings and utensils.  Have you ever wondered why all that effort was necessary?  Why Hashem didn't just drop it down from the sky?  Here's why...  



  1. Flu or influenza derives historically and etymologicly as the heavanly flow or divine flux, also in modern Hebrew, שפע/שפעת.

    If Hashem yis. wishes to bring Judgement(רח"ל) on the world because
    of its sins He may simply withhold this Flux. The Tikun is of course
    Teshuvah, Torah study and Tefila.

    However, should Hashem be suffciently displased, He may even, as in the current situation, prevent the Jews from Prayer(in a minyan) and Study in classes that have extra value on their own, and that
    protect and sustain the world.

    The Zohar writes(source), that during the Geula as the situation becomes sufficiently dire, the gentiles will turn to their gods and pray. However this will be to know avail, because, in the Zohar's words, only the Jews have Strength of the Mouth, and I suppose since
    the gentiles are praying to false gods, it will only make matters worse, especially in Edom.

    Since the Jewish People are now effectively in a lockdown, this crisis can only be resolved with the War of Gog U'Magog and the Coming of Moshiach Tzidkenu, Amen.

  2. It is still possible to make aliya! See here:


  3. Corona means Crown in Spanish.

    Edom crowned themselves as kings over creation to make their own laws on human behavior. They forgot the 7 laws of Noach given to the nations . They thought they could divide Yerushalyim and Eretz Yisrael.

    Perhaps we can say that HaShem therefore crowned the lowest form of life over Edom in order to humble them and bring them low.

    President Esav does not see the hand of HaShem and will not beg for mercy. Therefore, a microscopic creature is crowned over him and his kingdom..

    We now see the mightiest nation in history being brought to it's knees in weeks by a microscopic virus. The US economy is in the process of collapsing. The supply chain is starting to collapse. Like a dying dog, this kingdom will probably fight against the other nations as it dies.

    The good news is that when Rome (Esau/Edom) descends, Jerusalem ascends.

    I await the coming of the Goel Tzedek.
