"DOUBLE ADAR"

30 Shevat 5782
Rosh Chodesh 

From Rabbi Berel Wein's Weekly Blog...

The month of Adar is designated in Jewish life as the month of joy and celebration – and with this being a Leap Year, we have a double dose of those special feelings. In every nineteen-year lunar-solar calendar cycle, there are seven years in which an extra lunar month is inserted into the Jewish calendar. This extra leap month is always the month of Adar. And with the wondrous holiday of Purim occurring in the middle of Adar 2, we are certainly in for joyous times.

Purim is not a holiday in the sense that Pesach is, for example, but it sure is a holiday by any other reckoning. A people constantly threatened with persecution and annihilation needs to be reminded regularly – at least annually – of its ultimate survival and of the defeat of its oppressors and enemies. The advent of the month of Adar always signifies a time or reassurance and confidence in Judaism, the Jewish people and the Divine hand of Providence, so to speak, which hovers over us.

It is a month of renewed vitality, faith and purpose. And in Jewish life, joy is always associated with the concepts of observance of ritual and the strengthening of Jewish values and beliefs. Even though the holiday of Purim itself is restricted to only two days in the month, its spirit and joy permeate all the days of Adar.

The rabbis stated that from the day that Adar begins we are already bidden to intensify our feelings of joy, faith and optimism. A happy event suffuses the atmosphere both before and after the day on which it occurs. The whole moth of Adar is viewed as au nit, as an entirety of good tidings and happy events. The month takes on the vibrant coloration of the joyous days that fall within its allotted time.

Adar also marks the final month of winter. It therefore becomes the harbinger of the beautiful weather of spring and summer that is the climate of the Land of Israel. Though Europe and America have experienced a truly bitter winter, we here in Israel have escaped with our moderate and mild winter weather interspersed with the blessing of periodic days of life-giving rain. (And even a little bit of snow.) In this, Adar fulfills its role of looking forward optimistically to better climes and times. Adar is, so to speak, the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel of winter and its inclement weather and sometimes dreary days. People are clearly affected by the climate where they live. The pervading darkness of the upper reaches of the northern hemisphere contributes to higher rates of suicide, depression, alcoholism and other negative behavior.

People do better in sunlight and warmth than in ice, snow and penetrating cold. The dramatic and continuing population shift in the United States for example to the warmer West and South is testimony to this fact. The coming of the month of Adar, above and apart from its aspects of Purim, is, by itself, a sign of hope and optimism. The sun will now shine more brightly and more often. As you can already fathom none of this brilliant journalism of mine really applies to those living south of the Equator. But since Israel is the center of the world and Israel is my home, everything written here should be considered valid.

We can all use an extra dose of Adar every so often. The realistically difficult world that Jews constantly live in needs to be occasionally lightened by an additional dose of joy and optimism. People gladly bear the idea of two Adars while they would be less likely to accept a doubling of any of the other eleven months of the Jewish calendar year. The Talmud advances practical and logical reasons to explain why Adar was chosen to be the potential double month. All of these reasons are naturally valid and acceptable on their own – a late rainy season, crops not ready, etc. The rabbis prevented King Chizkiyah from doubling up Nissan instead of Adar. There is an underlying value that the month of Adar possesses that no other month in the Jewish calendar can lay claim to. This idea of the joy of survival, of the ultimate downfall of the wicked, of the better tomorrow in physical, spiritual and national terms, belongs exclusively to Adar. There is no substitute for it in the rest of the year’s calendar.

UPDATE:  Levaya @ 4pm Har Hamenuchot.

She was a true Eishet Chayil...


Esther Pollard, the wife of Jonathan Pollard, passed away on Monday after being rushed on Saturday to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital’s COVID-19 intensive care unit suffering from septic shock (sepsis).

The funeral will take place on Monday at the Har HaMenuchot Cemetery in Jerusalem.

Pollard, who has been fighting breast cancer for years, returned a positive COVID test in hospital after negative home tests had indicated that she had recovered from a bad case of the virus. She passed away at age 68 with her husband, Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard, by her side.

"She was an amazing fighter," Jonathan Pollard told a confidant shortly after she died.

He confirmed that his wife died from Septic shock, a life-threatening condition that happens when your blood pressure drops to a dangerously low level after an infection.

Born in Toronto as Esther Zeitz, she devoted her life to bringing about the freedom of her husband. She met Jonathan Pollard on an Israel trip when they were teenagers. When she heard he was arrested, she started writing him letters, which he credited with keeping him going during his worst years in prison.

They were married in 1993, but never permitted more than visits in the prison until his release in 2015. Since then, Jonathan had been taking care of Esther, helping her fight her cancer.

Jonathan and Esther Pollard moved to Israel a year ago after his parole restrictions that prevented him from leaving New York were removed.

The former US Navy intelligence analyst was sentenced to life imprisonment and served a 30-year term for passing classified information to Israel.

MK Orit Struck (Religious Zionist Party) said Esther was "larger than life" and said, "her love and determination penetrated the prison walls and returned her husband to life."

"And these are the ordinances..."

26 Shevat 5782
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashat Mishpatim - Mevorchim

From the Stone Edition Chumash Commentary:

Murder and Manslaughter

Murder incurs the death penalty, but only if it is premeditated.  ...However, if someone killed through carelessness, but unintentionally ... he is not deserving of death, though his crime must be punished.  For such an offender, the penalty is exile in specially designated cities.  

...In describing the case of an accidental homicide, the Torah says God had caused it to come to his hand.  It is a fundamental principle of the Torah that events are not haphazard.  Always there is the guiding hand of God.  "Sudden, coincidental" happenings only seem to be so.  When someone is struck by the tragedy of having unintentionally killed a fellow human being, surely a traumatic experience, he should realize that since God had caused it, it indicates that he must have committed some sin or crime that went unpunished, and that his current victim must have been guilty of a capital offense that went undetected.  By causing one person to cause the other's death, God was squaring the accounts, for God's justice is unimpeachable; it is only we who are incapable of comprehending it.

Their "FRIENDSHIP" is Nothing but a PLOY

25 Shevat 5782

They are predators. Time for a review.  





Eisav attaches to the Erev Rav and gets them to do the dirty work.

Religious Services Minister Matan Kahana on Wednesday [Jan. 12, 2022] unveiled his government-backed proposal to reform the state-sponsored process for converting to Judaism.

...Kahana said there are 450,000 people living in Israel who have Jewish ancestry but are not considered Jewish under Orthodox law, mostly immigrants from former Soviet Union countries. The proposed legislation, he said, “is the only way to deal with this challenge.”

...The bill was drawn up with advice from several leading rabbis in the Modern Orthodox movement,....

...As part of plans to make deep changes in state-controlled Jewish religious services, Kahana announced last week that conversions to Judaism will be headed by Rabbi Benayahu Brunner, who is affiliated with Tzohar, a group of relatively liberal Orthodox rabbis.

It is well-known that some part, if not all, of these 450,000 are associated with some form of Christianity.  They have refused to convert up to now because they have no intention of keeping mitzvot.  The ultimate goal is clearly to destroy the integrity of Klal Yisrael.  Just another part of the ongoing war against HKB"H.

Here are some reactions from the Diaspora regarding the announcement of the Caucus...
Sheila Katz, chief executive of the National Council of Jewish Women, said the announcement raised “far more questions than it answers” and has reached out for clarification.

“It purports to advance Torah values, yet there are no Jewish members of the caucus nor does it appear American Jews were consulted in the creation of the caucus,” Katz said. “These gaps and inconsistencies naturally throw into question the integrity of this caucus and its intentions.”

Rabbi Jack Moline of the Interfaith Alliance sent a letter to Bacon and Cuellar on Friday, cautioning them that the creation of a caucus to advance values held in the sacred text will do little to combat antisemitism and violates the First Amendment. “Unfortunately, this caucus does little to address the concerns of everyday American Jews,” Rabbi Moline wrote. “Rather, it politicizes our existence and erodes the longstanding wall of separation between government and religion, endangering the very people it claims to defend.” (Source)

A group of Christian, mostly Republican politicians have appointed themselves guardians of the Jewish faith. It won't end well.
By Noah Berlatsky, cultural critic
Right-wing evangelical Christians like to pretend they speak for Jewish people. This is not, to put it mildly, generally in the interest of Jews. It isn’t in the interest of a healthy democracy, either.

The latest example of the appropriation of Jewish identity is the congressional “Caucus for the Advancement of Torah Values.” It is led by Republican Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska and conservative Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas. Neither of these men is Jewish. None of the other members of the caucus appear to be Jewish, either. Besides Cuellar, they all also seem to be Republicans. This caucus is clearly not an organization by and for Jews. It’s an organization for mostly right-wing American Christians who want to be associated with, and speak for, Jewish people.

Again, this isn’t unusual. At the end of 2019, President Donald Trump retweeted a quote from a Christian conservative radio host that described him as “the King of Israel.” After the antisemitic massacre at Tree of Life synagogue in Philadelphia, Vice President Mike Pence appeared at a rally where a prayer was delivered by a Christian claiming to somehow be a rabbi. The right also loves to use the phrase “Judeo-Christian values” to promote a conservative Christian agenda that conveniently erases the several thousand years during which “Christian values” included beating, forced conversion and murder of Jewish people.

Christian philosemitism, especially on the political right, is often linked to support for Israel. Evangelical conservatives have long embraced Israel in part because many believe it’s important for fulfilling end times prophecies (in which Jews convert or go to hell).  Evangelicals also have a strong connection with Israel and the holy sites located there. Israel’s oppression of Palestinian people and its conflicts with its Muslim neighbors also feed into right-wing ideology, specifically Islamophobia.

Sure enough, Bacon said the Torah Values caucus would oppose “anti-Israel bigotry,” a phrase that neatly conflates criticism of Israel with antisemitism. But Bacon also said the caucus would protect the Jewish “right to worship freely.” The press release specifically points to harassment of Jewish people in New York City and how Covid restrictions there are being applied to synagogues and yeshivas. These are important concerns of the caucus’ primary Jewish adviser, David Hofstedter, an Orthodox rabbi from Canada. Joshua Stein, a philosopher who studies antisemitism, pointed out on Twitter that two representatives in the caucus are Christians from Pennsylvania, Dan Meuser and Brian Fitzpatrick. Yet the material doesn’t mention the Pittsburgh Tree of Life shooting, probably the worst antisemitic hate crime in U.S. history. Antisemitic violence is a national problem. But for the right, as Stein explains, “the focus is on NYC *because* NYC is diverse and liberal.”

If you’re actually interested in combatting antisemitism, you need to talk about antisemitism across the country. That would include antisemitic attacks perpetrated in the name of Palestinian activism, like the recent hostage crisis at a Texas synagogue. But it would also have to include antisemitic violence like the shooting in Pittsburgh and antisemitic remarks by white conservative Christians like radio host Matt Walsh, who recently minimized the violence of the Inquisition. Sometimes that antisemitism is cloaked transparently in allyship. Take Christians United for Israel, a pro-Israel organization founded by right-wing Christian John Hagee, who himself has made antisemitic statements claiming that the Holocaust was part of God’s plan to create a Jewish state.

Instead, the Torah Values caucus goes after New York City, a diverse, multiracial, multi-ethnic, Democratic-voting city. And why does New York City vote Democratic? There are lots of answers to that question. But one important one is its large Jewish community.

Jewish people in the diaspora have long been stereotyped as stateless perpetual immigrants. The suspect in the Tree of Life shootings believed Jews were trying to encourage immigration to replace white people. Jewish people also are consistent liberal voters; about 70 percent identify as Democrats, according to Pew. (Orthodox Jewish people are an exception; they tend to lean much more Republican.)

Singling out New York City as a den of antisemitism doesn’t just distort the actual prevalence of antisemitism. It also appoints these Christian politicians as de facto arbiters of oppression, deciding who is a good Jew and a bad Jew, who is oppressed and who is the oppressor. They, of course, are standing with, and even in place of, the oppressed.

It doesn’t help any Jews anywhere when Christians give themselves the power to decide which instances of antisemitism are worthy of note and which Jewish people are worthy of solidarity. Nor does it help Jewish people when the cities they live in and the Democratic Party many of them vote for are demonized using antisemitic tropes.

But ultimately, what right-wing conservative Christians love more than almost anything else is playing the victim — thus Christian support for the Jan. 6 coup attempt. White Christian evangelicals embraced Trump precisely because he articulated their feelings of powerlessness and rage in the face of a growing nonwhite, non-Christian majority, according to Yale sociologist Philip Gorski. When Christians cosplay as Jews, adopting or co-opting Jewish phrases or causes or identities, they are able to buttress their own claims to righteousness and to revenge.

Christian militant revenge movements haven’t traditionally ended well for Jews. Self-appointed Christian guardians of righteousness and faith are advancing their own interests. They shouldn’t do it in Jewish people’s names.

Lo and behold!  On the very same day this "Caucus for the Advancement of Torah Values" was launched, yet another "bipartisan Congressional caucus" was announced...
US Lawmakers Launch Bipartisan Caucus to Promote Abraham Accords

JERUSALEM, Israel – A bipartisan group of US lawmakers launched a new caucus on Monday dedicated to promoting and supporting the Abraham Accords – a set of normalization agreements Israel has signed with its Arab neighbors.

The caucus is co-chaired by eight House and Senate lawmakers, including Sens. James Lankford (R-OK), Jacky Rosen (D-NV), Joni Ernst (R-IA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), David Trone (D-MD), Ann Wagner (R-MO) and Brad Schneider (D-IL).

“In just one year, the Abraham Accords have already transformed the Middle East by contributing to regional peace and stability, promoting US interests, and enhancing Israel’s security,” Sen. Rosen told Jewish Insider. “The Abraham Accords Caucus will build on that success by providing bipartisan leadership to strengthen existing partnerships and widen the circle of peace to new countries.”
Do you get that we are being surrounded and pushed into a corner from every direction, both at home and abroad.  Our Christian "friends and supporters" are too damned involved in our lives and our business!!  What they are doing is not supportive of us and our mission, but is, purely in their own self-interests, pushing their own goals and agendas.  

Why are they obsessed with us?  Why can't they find enough to occupy them in their own backyard?  

Who is going to finally stand up to them and say "Stop!  Enough!  No more!"  

(You know who.)

Non-Jewish US House reps form congressional ‘Caucus for Advancement of Torah Values’

JTA — Two non-Jewish members of Congress announced the formation of the Congressional Caucus for the Advancement of Torah Values on Wednesday in an effort “to pledge our friendship to our Jewish friends,” according to a statement by Republican Don Bacon, who is co-chairing the caucus.

“This Caucus is going to be so important in a bipartisan way. We have to be able to have the strength so we know what’s good, what’s bad, what’s moral and what’s not moral,” Representative Henry Cuellar, a Democrat who is the caucus’s other chair, said in a statement.

...The meeting was also attended by Rabbi David Hofstedter, the Canadian founder of an Israel-based organization called Dirshu. The mission of the organization, founded in Toronto in 1997 but now based in Jerusalem, is to encourage the study of Torah.

Speaking to the group at the opening session, Hofstedter claimed that “Torah values” were the “foundation of the USA” and repeatedly mentioned freedom of religion as one of those “Torah values.”
So what's wrong with it?  Here is a list of problems...
  • These Congressmen are avowed Christians, idolaters following a false god, whose understanding of the Torah is skewed to the side of Christianity, which is false.
  • They proclaim a "brotherhood and sisterhood" with Jews which is another falsehood.
  • They want to "fight" antisemitism which is a tool in the hand of Hashem which can be "fought" only through Jewish repentance for the violation of these same Torah laws.  It can't be done through legislation.
  • They want to "support Israel" but only as long as it remains a little sister clone of the USA.  These same people will fight the real Mashiach.
  • It's admitted aim is to strengthen the United States - make it "Great Again" so it can continue to rule over the rest of the world and keep Israel under its thumb.  That's not God's plan as revealed by our Sages.
Here are some quotes taken from the transcript of this just-published video: The Inauguration of the Congressional Caucus for the Advancement of Torah Values
"...commitment to preserving our nation's moral fabric and the values on which our great country was founded...." 
"...there's nothing partisan about preserving our nation's sacrosanct values of exercising our religion and faith freely...."
"...the purpose of this is really to pledge our friendship to our Jewish friends and our brothers and sisters...." [i.e. another step into assimilation.]
"...obviously six million Jews were murdered by the Nazis but I think us as believers have a choice when we confront something like this.  Do we wallow in hate, do we wallow in revenge, or do we turn evil and turn our actions into something positive?" 
"...the first Torah caucus ... is really a remarkable event and I think it's a testament to the strengthened vitality of the American democracy...."
"...advance these Torah values, fight against anti-semitism, fight against hatred in all of its forms, fight for freedom of religion, fight for the beliefs, the values that made this country so great.  ...We should always be mindful of the Torah values as embodied in the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence...."
"...Our nation's best days are still ahead." [God forbid!  As long as America reigns, there is no Mashiach and no Beit HaMikdash!!]
I don't know about you, but I do not want us to be involved with anything that prolongs this horrific exile!  Notice that they have their token rabbi, with the 'added attraction' of being the offspring of Holocaust survivors, involved.  Without Jewish participation, they can't hope to succeed.  Tumah has to attach itself to kedushah.

Just to clarify, this is not about the righteous among the nations advancing the Noahide Code of Law for gentiles, it's about more firmly establishing Christianity as a State religion for the US with tolerance for Jews [up to a point].

Note that by using the term "Torah VALUE" they unlink it to Torah LAW, putting such "values" on the level of things they deem beneficial for society but not something you do because God Almighty commanded it.

And once and for all, "Freedom of Religion" is emphatically NOT a "Torah value"!!!  All human beings are bidden to worship The One God - the only Creator - King alone over the entire Universe - and do so in accordance with the laws and instructions given to/for them in the Holy Torah, not whatever they make up their minds they'd like to offer.

Next question: Who is really behind this?

"Hashem Rescued Them" - Hashem Will Rescue Us Too

Shemot 18:8-11...

Moses told his father-in-law everything that Hashem had done to Pharaoh and Egypt for Israel's sake - all the travail that had befallen them on the way - and that Hashem had rescued them.

Jethro rejoiced over all the good that Hashem had done for Israel, that He had rescued it from the hand of Egypt.  Jethro said, "Blessed is Hashem, Who has rescued you from the hand of Egypt and from the hand of Pharaoh, Who has rescued the people from under the hand of Egypt.  Now I know that Hashem is greater than all the gods, for in the very matter in which [the Egyptians] had conspired against them...!

Ah!  There it is!  Another conspiracy "theory" - actually conspiracy FACT!  Yitro was there when Paro conspired to kill the Jewish babies by drowning them in the river, and here, HKB"H, measure for measure, destroyed the Egyptians by drowning them in the sea.  The irony - and the justice - of it was not lost on Yitro, nor on any of the surrounding nations who heard of it.

Very soon, the story will be told again and this time, it will be the New Egypt - the New World Order Egypt - and its erstwhile Pharaoh who will be on the receiving end of HKB"H's mida k'neged mida justice and the whole surviving world who had suffered under the heavy hand of this New Egypt will be praising Hashem for His rescue.

WEF Founder Klaus Schwab calls for a ‘great narrative’ for humankind at meeting in Dubai World Economic Forum (WEF) 

Founder Klaus Schwab launches the Great Narrative Meeting in Dubai, which aims to create a “story for the future” that will be the “great narrative for humankind.”
The WEF’s great reset is about to have a great narrative to further its agenda.

Speaking at the Great Narrative Meeting in Dubai, United Arab Emirates today, Schwab announced his intent to develop a great narrative that public and private entities will use to shape the future of humanity.

“We are here to develop the great narrative, a story for the future,” said Schwab.

“In order to shape the future, you have first to imagine the future, you have to design the future, and then you have to execute it,” he added.

“Here, I think the next two days, we will look [to] how we imagine, how we design, how we execute the great narrative, how we define the story of our world for the future.”   [Read further here.]

The Jewish people already has a "narrative" - it's the Torah and it will never be replaced by anything else.  Neither will we add anything else to the Torah!

Incoming US ambassador to Israel won’t visit Judea and Samaria

The new American ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides said he will “absolutely not” visit communities in Judea and Samaria in his first interview as envoy with a Hebrew-language newspaper on Friday.

...Although he said he has “no ideology” when it comes to Israel, Nides [a Jew] is a firm supporter of the two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, just as Biden is. He told the paper that he believes that “Israel will be strengthened” by giving up parts of the country to establish a Palestinian state, and that is important to him.

“All I care about is that Israel will remain a strong, democratic and Jewish state,” he said.

In addition, “The Biden administration believes it must take care of the Palestinian people...."

THE ULTIMATE TEST

"Hashem said to Moses: 'Behold, I shall rain down for you food from Heaven. Let the people go out and pick each day's portion in its day so that I can test them, whether they will follow My teaching or not.'"

Without a doubt, man's hardest test in this world is his obsession with making parnassa - a livelihood. Certainly this occupies most of man's waking thoughts, from the moment he rises till the moment he places his head on his bed at night, throughout his entireadult life. Will the bank call me today because of my overdraft? Will I be able to pay my bills? Do I have enough money in my "nest" for retirement? Even our patriarch Jacob prayed to G-d only for a "garment to wear and food to eat."

The Jewish people, maybe more than any other nation, has always had the issue and worry of parnassa etched upon them. When Hashem first commanded us to leave Egypt and follow him into the desert, a place of no water or food, some 2 to 3 million Jews - men women and children - went without hesitation, and for this they were praised by G-d, as the prophet Jeremiah tell us: I remember for your sake the kindness of your youth, the love of your bridal days, how you followed me in the wilderness in an unsown land".

When the Jewish people left Egypt and began to complain of the lack of water and food, Hashem rained down upon them Manna -Angel bread - which continued for the 40 years that they were in the desert, and without great trouble they would be sustained with all that they needed. There were three aspects about the Manna: 1) it would come down in small amounts; 2) each person would receive exactly what he needed; and 3) any Manna left over would turn putrid.

The Manna was a great test for the young nation of Israel. Would they take more than they needed to order to have for a "rainy day"? Would they go out when commanded not toon Shabbat to search for the Manna? The Ramban writes that every day the Manna would come down a little bit later than on the pervious day, and while they were waiting for it to descend, worried parents would be concerned that maybe today the Manna would not come at all and then what would be? But sure enough, it would arrive. In this way Hashem was testing His people and teaching them to rely only on Him for their sustenance.

The Talmud relates that the students of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai once asked him: Would it not have been better if Hashem would have given the Jewish people all of their needs once a year, instead of making them go out everyday to search for the Manna? He replied that Hashem desires the prayers of the Jewish people, that they should call out to Him. Families which had four or five children would cry out to Hashem: Should my children die from hunger? It would then be that Hashem would answer their prayers.

Daily we struggle with the test of parnassa. It is the one test that runs after us time and time again, never releasing us from its hold. If we are able to strengthen ourselves with faith that all parnassa comes from the Creator - like the Manna that fell in the desert - that daily we receive exactly what we are supposed to for our families, no more but also no less - then we are able to uplift ourselves and connect to our Creator. This, then, is man's ultimate test in this world: Will we believe that Hashem is Master of the world and can certainly supply all our needs? Or will we fall into thinking that we must take "extra" stolen Manna into our houses, to "help" out G-d so to speak?

Rabbi Elazar Hamidai said that everyone who has enough food for today and says what will I eat tomorrow is of little faith. As the Talmud tells us, what causes the righteous to lose their table in the next world? It is because of their little faith. Yes, they are call righteous, they keep all the mitzvot, eat all the right foods, learn all the right Torah, know all the right moves, but are still called by the Talmud, men of little faith, for not believing that Hashem can really provide for them.

Today, the most common excuse we hear from fellow Jews in the exiles is: Oh, I would love tocome and live in Israel, but how will I make a living? People: Think about that a moment. What are you saying? That Hashem, Master of the world Who provides and sustains life for every little thing, from the mighty lion to the eggs of lice, won't be able to supply your family?

While praying to Hashem we all raise and open our arms, saying: "You supply all living beings with life", as we turn our eyes heavenward, but do we mean that this is only for outside the Land of Israel? In Israel G-d cannot give me my daily bread!!??

Needless to say, this is the ultimate test for the Jew today. Do we really believe in Him, that even in the land of Israel it will be OK and he will supply our parnassa? Or do we stay behind in the exiles, not taking part in the final chapter of Jewish history unfolding before us and say: Well, G-d really cannot provide for me in His land, so I'd better stay put in the exile.

Today, Israel houses some six million Jews, some rich, some poorer, but all of whom have food on their table and clothes to wear. Every day Hashem brings down the modern Manna for His people. Yes, He can and He does, but those who stay behind because they feel that He cannot help them - fail miserably the ultimate test that the Jew was sent into this world for.

Ultimately, as G-d always pays back measure for measure, that very same "nest" that they have come to rely on so much will vanish before their eyes.

With blessings,
Levi Chazen

"There is currently NO medical emergency"

The following report is all the more significant considering this Professor's background

Professor Ehud Qimron, head of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Tel Aviv University and one of the leading Israeli immunologists, has written an open letter sharply criticizing the Israeli – and indeed global – management of the coronavirus pandemic.

Ministry of Health, it’s time to admit failure

In the end, the truth will always be revealed, and the truth about the coronavirus policy is beginning to be revealed. When the destructive concepts collapse one by one, there is nothing left but to tell the experts who led the management of the pandemic – we told you so.

Two years late, you finally realize that a respiratory virus cannot be defeated and that any such attempt is doomed to fail. You do not admit it, because you have admitted almost no mistake in the last two years, but in retrospect it is clear that you have failed miserably in almost all of your actions, and even the media is already having a hard time covering your shame.

You refused to admit that the infection comes in waves that fade by themselves, despite years of observations and scientific knowledge. You insisted on attributing every decline of a wave solely to your actions, and so through false propaganda “you overcame the plague.” And again you defeated it, and again and again and again.

You refused to admit that mass testing is ineffective, despite your own contingency plans explicitly stating so (“Pandemic Influenza Health System Preparedness Plan, 2007”, p. 26).

You refused to admit that recovery is more protective than a vaccine, despite previous knowledge and observations showing that non-recovered vaccinated people are more likely to be infected than recovered people. You refused to admit that the vaccinated are contagious despite the observations. Based on this, you hoped to achieve herd immunity by vaccination — and you failed in that as well.

You insisted on ignoring the fact that the disease is dozens of times more dangerous for risk groups and older adults, than for young people who are not in risk groups, despite the knowledge that came from China as early as 2020.

You refused to adopt the “Barrington Declaration”, signed by more than 60,000 scientists and medical professionals, or other common sense programs. You chose to ridicule, slander, distort and discredit them. Instead of the right programs and people, you have chosen professionals who lack relevant training for pandemic management (physicists as chief government advisers, veterinarians, security officers, media personnel, and so on).

You have not set up an effective system for reporting side effects from the vaccines, and reports on side effects have even been deleted from your Facebook page. Doctors avoid linking side effects to the vaccine, lest you persecute them as you did with some of their colleagues. You have ignored many reports of changes in menstrual intensity and menstrual cycle times. You hid data that allows for objective and proper research (for example, you removed the data on passengers at Ben Gurion Airport). Instead, you chose to publish non-objective articles together with senior Pfizer executives on the effectiveness and safety of vaccines.

Irreversible damage to trust

However, from the heights of your hubris, you have also ignored the fact that in the end the truth will be revealed. And it begins to be revealed. The truth is that you have brought the public’s trust in you to an unprecedented low, and you have eroded your status as a source of authority. The truth is that you have burned hundreds of billions of shekels to no avail – for publishing intimidation, for ineffective tests, for destructive lockdowns and for disrupting the routine of life in the last two years.

You have destroyed the education of our children and their future. You made children feel guilty, scared, smoke, drink, get addicted, drop out, and quarrel, as school principals around the country attest. You have harmed livelihoods, the economy, human rights, mental health and physical health.

You slandered colleagues who did not surrender to you, you turned the people against each other, divided society and polarized the discourse. You branded, without any scientific basis, people who chose not to get vaccinated as enemies of the public and as spreaders of disease. You promote, in an unprecedented way, a draconian policy of discrimination, denial of rights and selection of people, including children, for their medical choice. A selection that lacks any epidemiological justification.

When you compare the destructive policies you are pursuing with the sane policies of some other countries — you can clearly see that the destruction you have caused has only added victims beyond the vulnerable to the virus. The economy you ruined, the unemployed you caused, and the children whose education you destroyed — they are the surplus victims as a result of your own actions only.

There is currently no medical emergency, but you have been cultivating such a condition for two years now because of lust for power, budgets and control. The only emergency now is that you still set policies and hold huge budgets for propaganda and psychological engineering instead of directing them to strengthen the health care system.

This emergency must stop!

EMET, EMET, EMET!

10 Shevat 5782

Dear Rabbi Reuven,

If you succeed in this skirmish in Boca Raton, please be informed, that the greater battle has only just begun.  Please, please read and share SOUND THE ALARM so people will understand how big and far and wide the problem has become.  What is occurring in Boca Raton  is only a very small part of a much greater, well-planned and organized agenda that affects every Jew no matter where he/she is in the world!  

It's not for nothing that this report SOUND THE ALARM was finished and published at the same time that you have brought international attention to this issue.  It is yad Hashem!  I know that as the God-fearing Jew that you are, that means something to you.

EMERGENCY MESSAGE FROM RABBI YARON REUVEN

Synthetic Biology - The New World Created by Man

10 Shevat 5782 

If you are living in the 21st century, you need to become familiar with the term "synthetic biology."

...[Futurist Amy] Webb has co-written a new book, “The Genesis Machine,” with pioneering geneticist Andrew Hessel that talks about the possibilities and pitfalls of synthetic biology — the broad idea that science will allow us to change everything from how we create medicines to food to human beings. (Designer babies are, she says, the wrong way to think about it.)

As 2022 kicks off with ever-increasing levels of innovation — and plenty of hype and fear to go with it — The Washington Post chatted with Webb about topics as varied as lab-created meats, CRISPR gene editing, 5G and the future of reproduction....
For a peek into this dystopian future, see the source. I didn't read it all. I don't care at all for horror stories. It's crazy how many people think this is not only okay, but highly desirable and unfortunately, they include most of the people holding the power to make it happen.  All the "usual suspects" are involved.

Synthetic biology is a field of science that involves redesigning organisms for useful purposes by engineering them to have new abilities. Synthetic biology researchers and companies around the world are harnessing the power of nature to solve problems in medicine, manufacturing and agriculture.

In some ways, synthetic biology is similar to another approach called "genome editing" because both involve changing an organism's genetic code; however, some people draw a distinction between these two approaches based on how that change is made. In synthetic biology, scientists typically stitch together long stretches of DNA and insert them into an organism's genome. These synthesized pieces of DNA could be genes that are found in other organisms or they could be entirely novel. In genome editing, scientists typically use tools to make smaller changes to the organism's own DNA. Genome editing tools can also be used to delete or add small stretches of DNA in the genome.  (Source 


Who could ever have imagined that when Mashiach would come, he would have to battle an army of doctors and scientists?

Hashem should have mercy on His creatures - every single one of them - and deliver us all from the evil that wants to recreate His world in the image of man!!

I don't know how many of you were able to view all of the videos or whether you caught it or not, but in one of them, Dean Bye is talking to Mike Bickle before a church audience and he's describing their education plan...

"...we hope to be able to send people back into Jewish communities, wherever you're from, and you'll know how to eat with a Jew, how to celebrate with a Jew, how to even talk to them so that a relationship can last longer than fifteen minutes."

Here is the proof of those words from Rabbi Yaron Reuven:

The Erev Rav rabbis are not found only in Eretz Yisrael.  And this is not the first time this particular person has offended in this manner.  [See "Assimilation From Within the Synagogue?"]

SOUND THE ALARM! Chapter VII: OBSESSION - American Jews Beware and Prepare!!

  9 Shevat 5782

Ch. ICh. IICh. IIICh. IV(1)Ch. IV(2)Ch. V, Ch. VI

Before concluding, I'd like to make it known that every bit of this content over all the chapters was researched, collected and organized by the blogger Geula Girl [Esav Exposed and The Key to Redemption] and it is thanks to her efforts that this information has been able to go out into the Jewish blogosphere and hopefully, do some real good in the world, to fight the lies, deceit and subterfuge, not to mention the overinflated egos.  Who knows, it might even save some lives!  You have our eternal gratitude, Geula Girl.  May you be blessed as you have blessed!

Mike Bickle's International House of Prayer (IHOP) was gifted with a property in Kansas City which was once part of the President Truman historical landmark area.  Hence they refer to it as the Truman Property or the Truman farm.  Bickle makes the point that they've had it for some time and yet it remained undeveloped.  Enter Dean Bye and suddenly big plans are in the works for it.  


Judging by Mike Bickle's explanation of the plans he envisions for it, the Truman property or rather, Truman Legacy Park, appears set to become some kind of Christian indoctrination center meant to spread this idea that the Church has to "help" North American Jews make mass aliyah.  And he claims "millions" have already been raised for its development.  

Both Bickle and Bye brag about their "relationships" with "Orthodox" rabbis.  I have it on good authority that the "hardcore Orthodox Israeli settler rabbi" who loves them is none other than Ari Abramowitz.  I'm told that when Tuly Weisz heard about the plans, he begged to be included. 

TREACHEROUS "RABBIS"

If this is the stature of the "rabbis" involved with this, all I can say is the joke is on Bye and Bickle.  However, it won't be a joking matter when they all stand for judgment.

The principals all believe that they have had Divine help and inspiration to reach this point.  Consequently, they are certain not only of their chances for success but of the righteousness of their cause.  It is truly ironic that it is Israeli-American "Orthodox" rabbis and Messianics who are cooperating with a scheme meant to mimic the Holocaust of the 20th century, God forbid, but without the mass extermination, though I don't find that to be very comforting.  Once this idea spreads and attaches to the latent antisemitism in EVERY Christian soul, there is simply no telling how far people will be willing to go in the event that American Jews resist their "forced" aliyahHashem yerachem!



I'D SAY "THE END," 
BUT THIS MAY BE ONLY THE BEGINNING.
