Tower of Bavel Reborn?

11 Sivan 5780

Riffing off Rabbi Richter's latest video shiur...
“...The Ben Ish Chai, Tractate Brachot, page 10, side A, tells an amazing Torah that when at the End Times, at Armageddon, Gog uMagog – the seventy nations – will come with the same Tower of Babel. The same tower that represented the fight against Abraham, against God, against the Torah. That same tower will be used in the End Days to fight against God and the Jewish People.” (0:41:28 - 0:42:20)
I propose that the aptly named 
is this very tower.

At its middle, the tower forms a perfect octagon. From the street, it looks like a pyramid ascending toward the sky.  (Source)
What locals and tourists alike call the Freedom Tower is officially One World Trade Center. ...One World Trade Center is the name of the building, but not all of the building is open to the public. The area open to visitors is the One World Observatory.

...One World Trade Center has the distinction of being the tallest building in the United States, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest building in the world. ...there’s a special historical reference built into One World Trade Center’s height that even most New Yorkers don’t know about. The building’s total height, including the spire, is 1,776 feet. This was designed deliberately to reference the year the Declaration of Independence of the U.S. was signed.
[REMINDER TO READERS: July 4, 1776 was 17 Tammuz on the Hebrew calendar.]
...From the videos and displays at the visitor entrance to the amazingly fast Skypod elevators that take you up 102 stories in just 47 seconds, everything about the visit is high-tech and built to impress. It’s a full audiovisual experience.... (Source)


  1. "Freedom" perhaps means throwing off the yolk of Heaven, to do what they want. Even Christians developed out of Jews rebellion against the Oral Torah, more or less. So, don't be fooled by the Christian American Patriot talk about "Freedom."

    Throwing off the yolk of Heaven is essentially Satanism, defiance of the Holy One, Blessed Be He, and His telling us what to do, so to speak.

    1. Exactly, freedom to do whatever you want.

  2. Lightening struck the washington monument last night.
    We know that haShem attacks a nations gods before he physically destroys them.
    Next to the statue of liberty, the washington monument is a potent symbol of america. An idol of america.
    How long before the physical america falls completely?

  3. Here's a link to the EU Strasbourg, France building, with the Tower of Babel next to it: the first picture in the post. But below that is the building they've replaced it with, in Brussels.

    Shabbat Beha'aloth'kha shalom!
