Geulah: Simply Go[o]d Timing

In the book Sor M'rah V'assah Tov [Turn from Evil and do Good] which is a commentary to the Hakdama [introduction] of the Arizal's Eitz Chayim, we find a geulah-dik answer to one of modern Judaism's biggest questions:  what makes the Arizal's kabbalah so special?    The answer which is given in most Torah circles is that the Arizal had the merit to bring down an entirely new revelation of kabbalah, but such claims are practically unprecedented in Jewish history.

Which begs the question even more - from what merit was the Arizal acting from?

The answer to this question is found in the book Sor M'reh V'asser Tov which had basis not only in the understanding of the Arizal but is consistent with the Vilna Gaon in Sifra D'Tzniusa - ''not WHO was the Arizal but rather WHEN was the Arizal''.

The Arizal came at an auspicious time when we view Jewish history according to 6000 years of creation.  From this paradigm we can view with a clear lens who the Ramban was in terms of the Arizal and who were the Besht and the Gra also, in terms of the Arizal.  Not only these mekubalim but from the Zohar onwards revelation of kabbalah is synonymous with the sixth and final day of creation.

The basis for this belief is uniform amongst the mekubalim, again from the Zohar onwards, in their grasp of the meaning of the prophecies laid down by Daniel in Sefer Daniel.  When we look at the Arizal specifically we see that the Ramban closed the 5th day of creation and the revelation of kabbalah turned from the kabbalah of tohu, and the Arizal then spawned a new kabbalah of the 6th day of creation in his relevation of tikkun corresponding to Atzilus.

From then on we find the unfolding of the sixth day right on target with the year 1739 as predicted by Daniel which is the revelation of the four great rivers of kabbalah: The Ramchal, the Baal Shem Tov, the Vilna Gaon and the Rashash.  This is hinted to in Daniel when it says ''time times and a half'' which is learned to be 2 x 2000s, 1 x 1000 and a 500, which is 5500 in total on the Jewish clock, which is 6am on the paradigm clock which is the year 1739.  This paradigm was predicted in the Zohar when it speaks of the wellsprings being opened from Shamayim into the Aretz and we see that the physical realm fulfilled this prediction as well with the advent of the industrial revolution.

Again Daniel prophecised this when he said ''until the completion of the fragmentation of the hand of the Jewish people''.  And as we in orthodox Judaism are currently are still living out the revelation of 1739, as Torah Judaism is today a reflection of the four great rivers in some shape or form.

Ultimately these predictions all go back to the Zohar.

If we are asking the question on the Arizal, we should really be asking from where did the Zohar draw its revelation and why did the Arizal insist on basing his kabbalah from the Zohar.

Now that we've come full circle back to the Arizal and we look at where he was located in Jewish time, we find that the days of creation are none other than a living map of Atzilus, and until the Arizal we had been living the pre-creation worlds all the way into the world of tohu while the Arizal was destined to be the revelation of the transition into the world of tikkun, ie partzufim.

This unfolding of the world of Atzilus, while being paralleled by mekubalim from the time of the Zohar, has continued all the way through our current status in the sixth day of creation.  Today we should not be surprised as we find ourselves standing just after mincha gedola in the much antitipated years of 72 and 73.

The Vilna Gaon in Sifra d'Tzniusa made it known that the redemption kabalistically would be in the years of 72 and 73 as the kabalistic expression of the world of Atzilus going through yet another transition - this time from Tikkun to that of Geula.

Upon this completion the Vilna Gaon revealed the messianic level of revelation was what he calls the Malchus of Yesod which is none other than 5772-73.

The Arizal also hinted at this time when he made it known at the end of his kabalistic works that there would be a time when the levels of mah [45] and ban [52] would equal 97 and would unite into a new madreiga which he termed Sag [63].  Sag is the feminine aspect which could be a hint to the great Shabbos, being that the Arizal brought down the world of tikkun which is the rectification of the breaking of the vessels which are alluded to as the eight kings of Edom, that all ruled and died.  But the last king did not die and he is identified by his wife Mehitavel.  What makes her interesting in the Arizal's kabbalah is that she is the anticipated level of 97 as her gematria is 97. Thus in closing the Arizal transitioned the world from tohu to tikkun he detailed the kabalistic path that would ultimately lead to the redemption.

It is our hope and desire that we extend the mission of the Arizal who was an aspect of MBY along with the reiteration of such by the Gr''a and Besht and others, that as we enter the final stage of the last 2000 years corresponding to Moshiach [both in the phsyical and spiritual realms] that we should be able to begin to identify the kabalistic reality that we are submerged in and recognise with clarity and bitachon that we are in fact entering the messianic era that is in perfect alignment and has been validated by the mekubalim and the Zohar until the present date.

May we merit revelation after revelation that will remove the slumber from our eyes and the veil of creation so that we may be able to partake in the messianic era with kavana and emunah that this is exactly where we stand today.

Erev Rav Policing International Waters?

Israel is looking more and more each day like it is fulfilling its destiny to rise to Pax Judaica.

As we know, The British Empire was one of the biggest Kingdoms of all time, and was made possible by its immense Naval presence. When World War II was over, the World gave birth to Pax Americana, which is where we are holding today. The American Empire is every bit as awesome as it was described by Daniel. And when we speak of America and her military - would anyone dare a military conflict in the oceans? - America owns International Waters it seems!
(except for the Straights of Hormuz of course! [and lets not forget our Somali Pirates - that apparently, either nobody has a solution for, or they simply dont care, or maybe a bit of both])

And then we arrive to Pax Judaica - dominion of Erev Rav ruling from Zion. As much as Israel identifying as an Asian Super Power is the key to eternity, Israel is now treading on unchartered waters - pun intended.

Israel has been strong militarily since gaining Independence in 1948. Financial success stormed into action in the 90's, which some say was when the Russians came (hello Mr. Putin!). And now here we are in the next Millennium, and Israel is now becoming resource-heavy; the coast is clear (pun once again intended) to now start being: Pax Judaica- circa Pax Britainica.

Israel is looking like a mirror image of Britain 2.0. Small land mass, strong military, involved in EVERYTHING, growing rich in resources - Boker Tov INF! One downfall of England was their policies on the Orient (spreading Opium in the crucial developmental years of the World is one example (1740+;  years predicted by Zohar; giving the Spiritual rise as well - Gra, Besht, Ramchal, Rashash, etc)

Israel would be much stronger in this area, as it would be identified as Asian to the Orient. And now with A REASON for unprecedented Naval Forces, Israel would be identical to England's Empire, only a 2.0 form, one built for our new era. Her Naval Force would have a different function than a WWI time period, but Israel is looking pretty to have free reign, to do, well what ever Israel does.

It is called Pax Judaica. It is run by Erev Rav. It is good for the Jews. It is not Torah-based. The oaths taken in the Talmud perhaps warned against Jewish Dominion that is not from Torah. If Israel expands her borders, not according to Emes, what would the fallout be from Shamayim?


When Israeli economists contemplate their country's untapped natural gas finds far out in the Mediterranean, they dream of energy independence and lucrative export deals. Those charged with Israel's defense, however, worry that the navy - small and long a middling priority in budgets - may be hard put to protect the multinational drilling platforms and rigs out at sea. "We will do our best, but without a major boost to our capabilities, our best will not be enough," a senior military planner said in one of a series of Reuters interviews with Israeli decision-makers on the subject. That all spoke on condition of anonymity indicates concern that such doubts over security might scare off investors and, perhaps, even encourage sea-borne attacks by Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Lebanese guerrilla movement hostile to Israel and to its exploration of gas fields also claimed by Beirut. There are internal political considerations, too. With Middle East instability spiraling, Israel's Finance Ministry is poring over an unwieldy plan for fiscal cuts combined with new spending on national security. The navy is lobbying for cash but is loath to challenge Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu openly. Maps and other dry facts speak amply. The huge gas fields centered 130 km (80 miles) from the port of Haifa in northern Israel, along with Yam Thetis, the existing gas-production rig just off Ashkelon in the south, make for a body of water covering 23,000 square km (9,000 square miles) - more than Israel's territory on land. Guerrilla raids from the north appear the main threat, with Palestinian Hamas militants penned in Gaza to the south and rumbling discontent from the Lebanese government over Israel's drawing of a maritime border unlikely to take a military turn. Providing rapid response in an emergency would strain the Israeli fleet of three corvettes - which have a crew of about 70 and can carry helicopters - 10 other missile boats and fast patrol vessels, and three diesel submarines, not least given their existing roles of enforcing the Gaza Strip blockade and the occasional foray through the Suez Canal to the Red Sea. "You would need to have at least two missile boats in the vicinity of the rigs at all time," said a senior officer. Another declined to give a specific number, saying only the navy required "several" new vessels to meet future missions. TALL ORDER That would mean major expansion of the fleet - a tall order, not least as Israel bought another submarine for $335 million in March. Visiting Israeli joint defense headquarters in Tel Aviv reveals the navy's junior status, its cramped command centre overshadowed by the marbled tower of the well-funded air force. The navy also faces skepticism from an Israeli cabinet stiff with former army generals and a finance minister, Yuval Steinitz, who is a civilian expert on maritime security. In the spirit of what Israelis mordantly call their "ad-hocracy", an unwillingness to spend on things that seem less pressing, the government may not agree with naval commanders about the urgency of protecting gas fields which are years away from being fully exploited and operational. One of the handful of gas development projects under way, Tamar, has finished a well 70 km (45 miles) from Haifa. An underwater pipeline will run from there to a production rig that will be erected next to Yam Thetis, 25 km (15 miles) from Israel's southern coast, by July 2013. Another project, Leviathan, is 130 km (80 miles) off Haifa - a remoteness from shore that would itself appear to provide protection from guerrilla raids - and is not expected to produce gas before 2017. A number of firms hope to find undersea oil reserves, as well as the gas. Robin Mills, head of consulting at Manaar Energy in Dubai, predicted an eventual increase in such activity off Israel and Cyprus, with several new exploration wells supported by supply ships and pipe-laying vessels. "It won't be like the North Sea, but not a negligible presence either," Mills said. "I wouldn't say the security discussion is premature." Asked about prospects for protecting the gas fields, a senior Finance Ministry official said only: "This is one among the Israel Defence Forces' various missions. We are confident that the IDF will successfully rise to it." MISSILES, DIVERS, DRONES Like its foreign counterparts, Israel's navy prides itself on a spit-and-polish proficiency, especially in carrying out missions of strategic importance. The officers who spoke to Reuters chafed at the idea that, in a fix, they might be forced to call on NATO powers which sail the Mediterranean, such as the United States. The Israeli navy has fended off a variety of threats over the decades, including at long range. Last year it captured anti-ship missiles which Israel said were destined for Palestinian guerrillas in the Gaza Strip. From there, the weapons could potentially have been used to blow up Yam Thetis. Citing intelligence assessments, the navy fears Hezbollah guerrillas in boats could fire similar missiles against Israeli targets in the northern gas fields. Other scenarios include remote-controlled flying bombs crashing into rigs, or miniature submarines striking from below. A separate possibility is of gunmen approaching the platforms in civilian vessels or with divers' gear, then storming aboard to kill or capture the crews. "We designated these kinds of attack as having a 'reasonable likelihood' of occurring," one Israeli officer said. Anthony Skinner, Middle East analyst at London political risk consultancy Maplecroft, voiced doubt about the imminence of any such incident. He argued Hezbollah has a role as a reserve reprisal arm of its patron Iran, should the latter's controversial nuclear facilities be bombed by the Israelis. "Were Hezbollah to target gas platform and production rigs, such an attack would likely provoke a robust response from Israeli forces, which may in turn precipitate a broader conflict. One of Iran's key cards against Israel would be removed from the table," Skinner said. But merely menacing the energy assets could have value in the eyes of Hezbollah and its allies: "It is altogether conceivable that Hezbollah will seek to deter or frustrate Israeli extraction. Iran too does not want Israel to be able to exploit massive oil and gas wealth in the Mediterranean," Skinner said. MUTUAL DETERRENCE? Though outgunned by Israel, Hezbollah guerrillas fought its army to a standstill in a border war in 2006 and have since maintained a tense standoff while making clear they are honing their military capabilities for any new conflict. Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the Hezbollah leader, indicated in a speech last July that any attack on Israeli offshore gas facilities would be in retaliation for an attack on Lebanon. Israel's navy says that in addition to enhancing its own fleet it expects stepped-up air force patrols of the gas fields and espionage further abroad. "If there is a Hezbollah guy training in South America to attack a gas platform, we want to know about it," an Israeli officer said, speaking hypothetically. There is hope for stop-gap measures such as unmanned, machinegun-equipped naval patrol boats that can travel long distances and remotely challenge suspect vessels. Navy officers also hint at the development of electronic counter-measures that would allow gas rigs to block incoming guided missiles. "The IDF knows how to provide a response for all of Israel's military needs," said Ohad Marani, a former Finance Ministry director-general and now CEO of ILD Energy, which plans to begin drilling the first of two new offshore wells in June. Texas-based Noble Energy, the main foreign company developing the gas fields with Israel and its maritime neighbor Cyprus, declined to discuss security measures for the platforms. One of the Israeli officers said the rigs had private guards who coordinate closely with the navy. But they have not yet held sufficient joint emergency drills, the officer said, citing reluctance to disrupt work that costs around $1 million a day. "Noble was the only company crazy enough to work with us," the officer said. "We don't want to be inconsiderate." That leaves the hope that Hezbollah will shrink from the geographical, and geopolitical, hurdles of strikes at sea. "The targets are so distant, and if they miss, then they hit the water and get no effect whatsoever," an Israeli officer said, channeling Hezbollah thinking. "And if they do get the target, then they hurt Americans and Filipino crewmen rather than just Jews. So maybe they'll think it's not worth it."

An Israeli [Strong] Presence in the International Waters, to go along with powers of facilitation and economics, could be the key to Israeli dominance for some time, perhaps eternity.

This would create the partnership with China, that would efectively be: Galus China -The eternal Galus. Fortunately, this is all dimyon, because Galus Yishmael is the last Exile, and we can be sure that Moshiach is then close. But at least we can see what something of a Galus China would look like. And you know what, it doesn't look that bad.
Thats the point, we would then not be motivated to be Jews and do our part of spreading Torah in the World - eternally. And Israel would be the Great Kibbutz, rather than the home of the Beis Hamikdash.

"Chayil HaYam"

Israel is finding reasons to survive and thrive.
Perhaps now is the Time of Torah; now more than ever

Is the problem "Erev Rav" or Bitul Torah? The Gemara in Berachos says: all Troubles ultimately stem from Bitul Torah. Maybe Israel is poised to lead the Spiritual Era, only the Torah is forgotten, as predicted by the Prophecies.
For this Moshiach would appear to have a two-fold Job. And for this, Moshe brought out the Erev Rav.

As Jeremiah said: There is Hope for your End!

Finding Your Mission: Names and Gematria

Parasha Bamidbar: The Anatomy of [a] “Shem” / [Name]

Rabbi David Katz

In this week’s Torah Portion of “Bamidbar” we receive one of the original sources to the well known principle, “שמא גרים” – “The Name Causes.” The root concept is that everybody has a name and at the same time every name has a meaning; the meaning carries with it the weight of the specific details of the anatomy of the soul along with the exact details of the Soul’s Spiritual Mission that it was sent to do. Just as everybody has a name, (even if you are called “Hey You!” – this would function as your name!) It would fall upon everyone a Divine Mission and purpose of being created. This concept is at the root of the Noahides roots going back to Shem and Noah, for Shem’s Name means: Name! (Ever, as in Shem and Ever would then mean “Hebrew Name”) The source of this concept in the Parsha, which is quoted by the Vilna Gaon in Kol Hator (The Gaon’s work on “Redemption” that outlines the nature of one’s Divine Mission based on one’s Name) is the verse in the Parsha: [Bamidbar 1:2] “Take a census of the entire Assembly of the Children of Israel according to their families, according to their fathers’ household, by “number” of the names…” It will be this “Number” that will serve as the basis of matters that equate into our concept (From Gemara and Zohar) “A Name Causes.”

One key concept to remember is that although the Simple Meaning of the text when stating, “Children of Israel” as the Jewish People that stood at Mt. Sinai, is that at the same time we can allegorically include the Noahides into this address to the people, for “Children of Israel” can figuratively refer to the Noahides and their required spiritual presence at Sinai. When we translate Children of Israel into a form of meaning, one could arrive to a meaning of, ”those of a Higher Spiritual Name”; this is akin to the nature of Jacob (who was pre-Sinai, and thus had a quasi Jewish/Noahide status [Ramban]) who was referred to Israel when in context of a higher Spiritual Calling. The Noahide effectively has the same scenario, that he can express his soul’s belief’s with the clarity of “Israel” – to “Jacob”, the same way that Jacob was involved with his spirituality and ultimately ascended higher with the Name Israel. Such would be any transcending name by a Noahide; for the Noahide has a direct portion of Sinai, particularly in a Spiritual domain, as his root in being commanded in the Seven Laws is conceived only through Sinai. Per force, the Noahide is rooted at Sinai (When he accepts the Seven Laws as was given at Sinai) and even more specifically in his Higher Spiritual Name. Along with this Name comes his “Number” as was spoken of in the Verse in Bamidbar. This number would hint at the “Hidden Wisdom” of one’s Name. Interestingly enough, Noah’s Name (which is comprised of a נ and ח refer to ח''כמת נ''יסתר: The Hidden Wisdom. It should come to no surprise that Noah fittingly named his Firstborn: “Shem” / Name!

One rule of thumb when learning about Names is that there are many ways to arrive to one’s “Spiritual Name.” We can look to Jacob, Ruth, Jethro, Noah, Shem, and Aravnah for examples of how names work, work as a Higher Spiritual Name, and into the concept of a “name causes.”

When we first look at Jacob, he gives us a clear example (that applies to Noahides and Jews alike) of how one has a Higher Spiritual Name. Most should be familiar with Jacob and his birth alongside Esau, upon which Jacob would earn the right of “Israel.” Yet we can contrast this type of Ascension with one such as Ruth. Ruth was named by non-Jews and even non-Noahides. Yet we still find that Ruth’s name was Divinely Inspired to that the point that her name even prophesied King David who would not only come from her but from this name as well! Here we have a great example of “A Name Causes” and this name required absolutely no change. An inspiration can come anywhere and anytime, and not necessarily needs to undergo change. Noah as well comes under this distinction, as he remained all the way through “Noah”; Noah according to the Commentators was at his greatest due to his Natural Name! Again, there was no change necessary. In a contrasting view, Jethro was originally named Jether, and upon returning to God he undertook the opportunity to add a letter to his name making him, “Jethro.” A simple observation is that in Jethro’s Torah Portion the Torah was given, which is a direct hint at the “Number” of his name, for Jethro/יתרו is 616 which is the same as “The Torah” התורה. And of course Shem is the expression of the raw power of a Name as he was simply called “Shem” / “Name.”

In the Torah Portion of Bamidbar we learn somewhat of the secrets in how names work. Many are familiar with the David’s of the World and the Noah’s of the World, along with most of our hero’s from the Tanach. Yet there are other Men and Women of valor that we are not aware of, who have names that we can see their power of soul through the expression of their name. Aravnah the Noahide is one example of a tremendous name that went on to great heights and expresses one of the highest missions there are for either Jews or Noahides, as he was the “Minister of Zion.” His Name “Aravnah” means, “Yearning for Light.” When we look at the meaning of Names, and even apply the Hidden Wisdom with applications of Hebrew and Number, the sublime Higher Spiritual stature emanates through to the point that the soul can fathomed and in detail of its mission, for the Name Causes and all names are inspired from Hashem directly to the Namer. Yet our Torah Portion this week is unique, with a vast array of Names.

This week we deviate from the David’s and the Moses’ and the Jethro’s…and we find Names that easily express their Wisdom. (It should be noted that often in the Torah people may be born with their inspired name, like Ruth, or may achieve the opportunity to relate to their Higher Spiritual Name at a later date, such as Esther who was also called, “Hadassah”, etc…) A few of the Names we encounter are: EliShamah which means: My God Hears, AmiShadai which means: My Nation under “Shakai” (a Name of God), Shlumiel which means: the completeness of God, etc. These names are textbook clear, how a name can be ripe in its Wisdom to express meaning, cater to its Gematria, and reveal the inner dimensions of one’s soul and mission. These Names in Bamidbar, which happen to be found in the Parsha that is the source of Names having meaning, i.e. A Name Causes, encapsulate the perfect scenarios when learning about names, which is based on the premise that every name has these qualities. The only reason one would choose an “Israel” type of name, would be to elevate the apparent Purity of the Name, as was done with Jacob who became Israel. One point to always remember is that this is not always the case, as we see from Ruth and Noah, two people who lived righteous lives and changed the World, from the names that they were blessed with from birth. The distinguishing factor to always remember is that names are inspired by God, and this is a depiction of Merit; Merit is one Wisdom that Hashem Himself has exclusive rights over. Our job is to work with what we were given, and know the extent of which we are Blessed within our Free Will to maneuver about.

In closing, the Noahides are deeply rooted in Names, as was revealed through such luminaries as Ruth, Noah, Jacob, Jethro, etc. The task is to grasp onto the Higher Elements and to relate to “The Children of Israel.” If this is the allegorical, meaning those of Higher Spiritual Names, then one must cling to this Wisdom. It is clear at this point that everyone has a name, some born with more clarity in their name, and some with less. The key ingredient to latching onto one’s Higher Spirituality (particularly if his birth name is what he feels is his calling!) is to relate to the secrets of Noah-Shem-and-Ever: The Hidden Wisdom of One’s Hebrew Name! (This being the connotation of all three names) The Torah Portion of Bamidbar gives over to us these secrets, with plenty examples of richness in names, with Wisdom that is perceivable to the naked eye. But even beyond the sensory, is the plane of existence in the name that relates directly to the Soul. And this is why the Torah says: take a census…according to number, i.e. relate to the people the nature of the soul and its Gematria that befits its Mission. This Wisdom is none other than a reiterating pattern that stems from the root of Salvation, a trait that dates to Noah himself, for with his Hidden Wisdom and Power of his Name, Noah gave over these secrets as can be seen in his firstborn who was simply called, “Shem” – Name. Shem would go on to stand for everything he inherited from Noah, and along with his grandson Ever who also had greatness in his name, particularly when coupled with Shem, the two of them would teach and give over Torah, in a manner that for all of time, Torah and Names would be synonymous, much the way we can relate to the Parsha: Bamidbar.

Shabbat Shalom Shavuous Sameach!!!!

Torah: The Last Resort

We have just seen what could be the most monumental downfall in the History of the World: Gay Marriages legal as proposed by Obama. If America does endorse this, a most likely chain reaction across the Globe would ensue, erupting into an immoral crisis of Pre-Flood conditions. Every country would adopt the same measures, and the World would be found guilty.

But what guilt are we speaking of?

The Talmud [Chullin 92] says that the Nations of the World have adopted three Mitzvot, upon which the World's merit endures:

1) Prohibition of Marriage contracts amongst men.
2) Prohibition of selling human flesh in the market...uh WHAT?!

Some of the 230 defectors interviewed by the Korea Institute for National Unification, spoke of the executions of people who had eaten human flesh or sold human flesh. There were reports of outbreaks of cannibalism in the isolated state in late 1990 after a disastrous famine killed an estimated 2 million people, but according to new reports these are more recent. The most recent case occurred in 2011 in the city of Musan, a deserter from the country said, while a father and son were executed by firing squad in the city of Doksong in 2006 after being found guilty of consuming human flesh. In a third case, a man was executed in Hyesan in December 2009 for killing a child and eating it. The man allegedly resorted to cannibalism after supplies to the city declined following the disastrous efforts of the government to reform the currency triggered runaway inflation and worsened already serious food shortages. The study is published in South Korea this week, but seems to corroborate by the North Korean documents to the police that were smuggled out of the country by Caleb Mission missionary group and it detailed several cases of cannibalism. In one case, a hungry man used an ax to kill a co-worker, ate some meat and the rest is sold at a local market like a lamb. Pyongyang has been accused of using food supplies as a weapon to intimidate their own people, turning a blind eye to illegal markets when food is scarce, but then cracking down on private sales of new and limited deliveries when supplies are more abundant. He is also accused of failing to give food aid from international aid to the needy.

Yes, the 2nd breech has occurred. (Now what?!) Two down 1 to go.

3) Kavod Ha-Torah

The next assault on the World's existence will be to threaten the Honor of Torah.

Our job: Return to Torah; The mission now is quite clear.

What was Bilaam's Prophecy? - How Goodly are your Tents O' Jacob.
The Talmud explains this as: How great are the enterprises of Torah amongst the Jewish People!

May the Jews and Noahides of the World all return to the Holy Torah, and gain Eternal Merit!

Don't be too Righteous nor too Wicked...[Shlomo HaMelech]
...but keep the Torah with wholeness of Heart!

One Must Honor The Torah  = וצדיק באמונתו יחיה...

The Moshiach...I Mean The God Particle Is Due This Year!

I thought it was only the Geulah Bloggers who counted down the Time of the End and gave Messianic dates as a guarantee. Well, I was wrong, the mad scientists are guilty of it too. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the scientific / kabbalistic worlds are parallel and that the same date-giving loathing exists there too! (The Vilna Gaon does say Science and Kabalah will merge by the End of Days!)

So here it is, the date has been predicted of when we will find God...yadda yadda yadda. I might as well interject with a Geulah date Prophecy and keep up with the Jones'
...on second thought, maybe not.

A WEST Belfast-born engineer who is director of accelerators and technology at the Cern particle physics laboratory in Geneva has predicted that one of the key secrets of the universe will be discovered in a matter of months. Dr Stephen Myers told an engineers’ conference in Belfast yesterday that evidence for the existence or non-existence of the Higgs boson – the so-called God particle – could be discovered as early as August and by October at the latest. The Higgs boson was the remaining “big building block” to be discovered in terms of how to explain mass, said Dr Myers, during the course of his keynote lecture to the Engineers Ireland conference at the Europa Hotel in Belfast, and in an interview with The Irish Times. “It completes the standard model for mass,” he said. During the course of his lecture on the 27km Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at Cern, Dr Myers told the engineers that ongoing experiments at the collider should provide the answer as to whether the Higgs boson does or does not exist. He believed evidence would be found for its existence and this in turn would provide further important insights into the Big Bang, the creation of the universe, that scientists say happened about 13.7 billion years ago. “If it does not exist there will be enough data to show that the Higgs is excluded and that there must be another mechanism for mass. I am confident that we will find the Higgs by August or September of this year,” he said. Dr Myers said a very high standard of proof was required. “You only declare a discovery when you can say there is only a one in a million chance that you are wrong,” he said. He believed that Cern would establish proof for the Higgs boson to a standard of a “one in two million chance of being wrong”.

Now they got me wondering if every sect of Wisdom is doing the same thing?!

Medicine: This year we find the cure of cancer - guarantee!
Business: This year the Holy Grail of finance will be discovered!
Science: This year we will find the God Particle!

The point is, everyone is doing it. Lay off the Geulah Bloggers.
Moshiach will come one day, in the meantime, we blog the journey. We're people too.
But seriously, predicting to find the God Particle? That's just preposterous...silly scientists, God is for Kabalists.
Now if we can just figure out when Moshiach IS going to come!

Moshiach Will Come

Erev Rav or "Rav" Leadership

Welcome to Israel of the next Millenium: The age of ["eternal"] Klippah.

As Kedusha struggles to secure a Holy and Pure State of [Torah] Israel, Klippah, i.e. Erev Rav seeks to essentially accomplish the same, only from the side of exploitation. This would be the ultimate State of Israel, only one not from the merit of Torah, but from the toil of "OUR" hands.

The Irony of "Galus China", is that it is headed by the other Asian giant, Erev Rav, as Israel is technically Asian.  Even though it is the Galus that will never happen, for it is eternal, the Orient is seen as the opportunity for endless exploitation to cater to the "State's" long-term agenda. This would be a win-win scenario, other than it is exploitation, rooted in evil, and is to the mi-ut of Torah and Beis HaMikdash.

The Orient however, sees working with Erev Rav as an opportunity to fulfill its own agenda, as Israel would essentially become "Pax Judaica" while achieving a mastery of the Orient beyond what even The British Empire was able to accomplish.

There are two ways to spread Torah through the World: through Klippah or Kedusha. Through Torah or which it is said, "if not now, when?"

The Orient is a goldmine, something Israel is not short of these days; as not only the Orient is lending itself to the Jews, but finding Shale Oil reserves, Natural Gas, High Tech, etc...Israel is busting out in every way - With the Orient, this IS Galus China, as it is a Klippah that one would never recover from, as it is neither good or bad, its "OK." As such Kedusha would never be motivated to escape its veil and complacency.

The path of the Erev Rav would potentially be straighter if the production of the other Klippah (Erev Katan) would begin or return to produce Torat Emet, and cease the taiva of mediocrity.

In the end, if there was a True enterprise of Torah ideals (as opposed to its great rival Zionsim), perhaps there would be something to invest in that is not exploitation.

About the End of Days: ..."The Truth and Men of Truth will be missing."

Fortunately the Truth is something to invest in, and can lead the State into being the Light to Nations that it is destined to be.  The only question remaining, is where is the Leadership? With proper Leadership, the Erev Rav and Katan can take peace of mind in being and fulfilling their destiny within Klal Yisrael, which is to secure the State of Israel and promote Torah; once again, the story is the same as it always has been (going back to Korach for this reason) - Where are our Leaders!? This explains why the Moshiach is the paradigm Leader, as it isn't so much Klippah, but rather the lack of Leadership. which the Gra says [in accordance that one might not be Erev Rav] as EASY as it is to be tangled in Klippah [as Kedusha falls victim] such a person is better off to not be created and this is the most bitter war, yet not to worry, for even the Forefathers fell victim to the likes of Yishmael and Esav.

Perhaps the shift in "Millennium" consciousness for Torah Judaism is to assess the concept "Leadership" in the contemporary World. Ironically, we are on the brink of such a paradigm shift, whether we like it or not, as Leadership IS the next step of Jewish History. The task is merely going through it and getting from Point A to Point B.

China and Israel on Monday pledged to boost ties between their armed forces as their chiefs of staff held talks in Beijing, according to a news release from the Chinese side. Chen Bingde, chief of General Staff of China's People's Liberation Army, hailed political, economic, cultural and people-to-people ties over the past 20 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Israel, the release said. "Military-to-military ties between the two nations have also grown along with the overall bilateral relationship," Chen told his Israeli counterpart, Benny Gantz. Chen said high-level visits as well as exchanges among technical groups of the two militaries have enriched their cooperation. The Chinese side attaches importance to the ties with the Israeli military, willing to make concerted efforts with the Israeli side to deepen pragmatic cooperation and contribute to the overall bilateral ties, said the Chinese general. Gantz, echoing Chen's remarks, said the Israeli armed forces look forward to more exchanges and closer cooperation with the Chinese side to make contribution to world peace and stability.

With Israel connected to the World through Covert Relationships in Russia, China, America, etc...Israel is positioning herself quite nicely for what will be "Pax Judaica."

Of course the Revealed element of this is as the Zohar and Sforim relate with lucid clarity: "The World will hate you." - For every reason imaginable.

Thus the more Isarael becomes "Asian" it is to the diminishment of its standing as a unique State in a unique place in the World, as the Holy Jewish People; an Enlighten(ed)/[ing] People that we are destined to be.

Again all that is really missing from this equation is Leadership.
The Story never changed and "There is nothing New under the Sun."

How about endorsing Leadership as an incorporation into the Velt.

Novelty: Sivan-Tammuz

These Guys really do want to fight [to the death]. It seems that they are paskening Hashem into the equation; assuming he is fighting for Iran.

-Such is the nature of the Sitra Achra - seeking Emunah and Kiddush Hashem of the Jewish People, while causing Kedusha to fight until the [Revealed] End.

Iran is dedicated to annihilating Israel, the Islamic regime’s military chief of staff declared Sunday. “The Iranian nation is standing for its cause and that is the full annihilation of Israel,” Maj. Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi said in a speech to a defense gathering Sunday in Tehran. His remarks came on the day International Atomic Energy Agency director Yukiya Amano flew to Tehran to negotiate for inspections of Iran’s nuclear program. They were reported by the Fars News Agency, the media outlet of the Revolutionary Guards Corps. While many within the Islamic regime, including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have often stated that Israel should be annihilated, until Sunday no one in the nation’s leadership has announced Iran’s determined intention to carry it out. Josh Block, a Middle East expert and former spokesman for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, told The Daily Caller that it’s unwise to shrug off the threats of a top Iranian military commander. “When they say it, they mean it,” Block said. “That is the lesson of history. We had best heed that reality. You can be sure the Israelis already understand it.” Block is a senior fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute who worked in the Clinton administration’s State Department. He told TheDC that the U.S. should be concerned about “an Iran that could give nuclear technology to their terrorist allies, including those like Al Qaeda and Hezbollah.” In a statement, American Jewish Committee executive director David Harris said Firouzabadi’s comments “should also put to rest, once and for all, the fanciful views of those remaining political leaders, diplomats, and journalists who contend that Iran is a ‘peaceful’ nation which has simply been ‘misunderstood’ by the global community.” Meir Dagan, the former head of Israel’s Mossad, and U.S. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey, have both said recently that Iran is a rational actor in the international arena and that the Iranians will consider the implications of their actions. Block also told TheDC that “the radicals and pseudo-experts at places like Plowshares, Media Matters, NIAC [the National Iranian American Council], writers for ThinkProgress, the New America Foundation and on and on” are “useful idiots and regime apologists” for Iran who continue to believe irrationally that Iran does not have the capacity to build a nuclear weapon. They “are the same cranks,” he said, “who claim Iran has been ‘misquoted’ or ‘mistranslated’ and never called for the ‘annihilation’ of Israel. Well, I am sure they will find some way to continue their charade, but only to their further discredit.” On Sunday, Iranian Gen. Firouzabadi also pointed to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s emphasis on the necessity of supporting Palestinians who fight against the “Zionist regime” Israel. Khamenei considers defending Israel’s enemies a religious duty. The Fars News Agency quoted earlier statements by Khamenei that Iran was directly involved with helping Hezbollah and Hamas during Lebanon’s 33-day war in 2006 and the 22-day Gaza war of 2008-09, which he proclaimed were stinging defeats for Israel. “In the future too, we will support and help everyone who opposes the Zionist regime,” Khamenei said in February. “The Zionist regime is a real cancerous tumor that should be cut and will be cut, God willing.” The mullahs leading Iran’s Islamic regime believe in the messianic return of the 12th and last Islamic messiah, Imam Mahdi. According to Shiite belief, Mahdi will reappear at the time of Armageddon, and his coming — as the Iranian documentary “The Coming Is Upon Us” revealed – will be triggered by the destruction of Israel. In a recent statement, Grand Ayatollah Jafar Sobhani, a religious authority and a top Iranian “Twelver Shia” — one who believes in the 12th Imam — addressed the future world described in the Quran. “The Quran is the proof that the world will be controlled and managed by the forces of truth and that there will be one government ruling everyone throughout the world,” he explained. The Quran promises — twice — the worldwide rule of Islam and its victory over all other religions, Sobhani said, and this will only happen when the last descendant of Muhammad, Imam Mahdi, returns and takes the rule of Islam across the world. Ayatollah Khamenei referred to this prophecy in a recent speech. “In light of the realization of the divine promise by almighty God,” he said, “the Zionists and the Great Satan [America] will soon be defeated. Allah’s promise will be delivered, and Islam will be victorious.” In February, conservative Muslims writing on a website tied to Khamenei told their followers that the Quran’s promises were “a ‘jurisprudential justification’ to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm.”

I'm "Guessing" that the War could be in the month of Sivan. We are really starting the Tekufa of the Mayan Calendar now with the "Ring of Fire" that we just went through and now we are headed into the Venus Transit date.

Take a look at Timewave Zero (Novelty Theory):

If you look on the chart, the Month of Sivan is a complete decent into Novelty (low points) and the result/destination is the month of Tammuz, which looks to me to be a totally Novel Reality, as from then on, the rest of the Chart is pretty much level.

-SO it seems that Sivan will be a highly Novel Month.
Speculation could suggest the Iranian War could/would/should take place in Sivan; Tammuz would (hopefully) bring Total Novelty to the surface.

Eureka! Israel Strikes Electricity!

Israel totally looks ready to take off and "Boldly go where no one has gone before!"

Israeli entrepreneur Shai Agassi has begun rolling out the world's first nationwide electric car network. Now, will the drivers come? After more than $400 million in outlays and months behind schedule, dozens of electric cars have hit the road in Israel, the test site Agassi chose for his Better Place venture. Four stations where the cars can get a new dose of juice when their batteries run out are operating, and the plan is to ramp that number up within months. The concept: to wean the world from oil and eliminate the biggest hurdles to environmentally friendly electric cars -- high cost and limited range. To do this, Better Place has jettisoned the fixed battery. Instead, drivers can swap their depleted batteries for fully charged ones at a network of stations, receiving a full, 160-kilometer (100-mile) range in five minutes. Better Place owns the batteries, bringing down the purchase price of the cars using the network. People driving shorter distances, the vast majority of customers, can plug in their batteries each day to chargers installed at their homes, offices and public locations, which will fully recharge in six to eight hours. He faces a wall of skepticism. A major concern is "range anxiety": Will the car conk out because its battery is drained, stranding the driver in a dicey neighborhood, en route to the hospital, or with three wailing kids in back? Rising fuel prices worldwide still haven't sent electric car sales surging, noted U.S.-based automotive expert John McElroy. "It may not be an energy price issue," he said. "Consumers may simply decide that electric cars don't offer the range they need." Agassi, a former top executive at software giant SAP AG, said he is ready to prove his doubters wrong. "We're driving a car that most people said would be a fantasy," he said. The swappable battery model aims to reassure drivers about range and show they don't need to sacrifice convenience or cash to switch to electric. So far, the four Better Place battery stations are set up in central and northern Israel. During the second half of the year, around 40 stations are due to be operating across the country. But even before that, the company says enough will be up that a motorist could make the 500-kilometer (300-mile) drive from Israel's northern tip to its southern end. Agassi has raised $750 million from investors including General Electric Co. and HSBC Holdings PLC since founding Better Place 4 1/2 years ago. French automaker Renault has begun selling a sedan, the Fluence, customized to use the stations, priced in Israel at roughly $32,000, comparable to other sedans sold here. Currently, about 140 are on the road, most driven by Better Place employees. The Fluence should start becoming available to the general public within weeks. Leasing companies, which buy about two-thirds of the more than 200,000 new cars sold annually in Israel, have ordered more than 1,800, and private customers have ordered several hundred more. Compared to electric or hybrid cars in other markets, the sales numbers in this nation of 6 million might not be as humble as they seem: In 2011, Chevrolet sold about 7,700 Volts and Nissan sold under 10,000 LEAFs in the U.S., which has a population of more than 310 million. "It interests all fleet managers we talk to," said Shai Dahan, CEO of Eldan Transportation, a top Israeli leasing group. Better Place, which had promised to have thousands of cars on the road last year, acknowledges the rollout is behind schedule, mostly because of bureaucratic hurdles and production issues at Renault. Better Place has also spent years testing its integrated system designed to allow its operation center, which is connected to every car, to monitor the vehicles and correct problems remotely. For instance, its software notifies drivers when their batteries are running low and directs them to the nearest switching station. Israel sales director Zohar Bali predicts up to 5,000 Fluences will be silently running on Israeli roads and highways within a year. Israel was chosen for the experiment in part because of its tech-savvy population. Also, with 80 percent of the population living in a narrow, densely populated stretch along the Mediterranean coast, it provides a perfect laboratory for the charging network. Better Place claims it can shave up to 20 percent off the annual cost of owning a car, especially if gas prices, now around $8 a gallon here, continue to rise. Drivers buy access to the switching stations and charging spots through a monthly package ranging from under $300 to over $500, depending on mileage. Israelis are taking notice. Better Place says more than 80,000 people in this country of 7.8 million have trekked to its visitor's center, situated at an abandoned oil reserves depot outside Tel Aviv. What happens in Israel could decide how broadly Better Place deploys. So far the Fluence is the only model compatible with the grid, but Renault's Middle East director, Jean-Christophe Pierson, says the company is considering a more compact model. Better Place is also in contact with other carmakers. Denmark is set to become Better Place's second launch site this year. Australia is to become its first major market, with deployment in the capital, Canberra, also this year. Small-scale projects are in place in Hawaii and California. Amsterdam is the next European target after Denmark. The company also has its sights set on China, where it already has opened a demonstration battery switching station. Agassi sees the "tipping point" for electric cars coming in two to three years, propelled by dropping prices of cars and batteries. By 2017, he expects 50 percent of all new car sales in Israel to be electric. The largest investor is The Israel Corp., whose holdings include Israel's biggest oil refinery and deep water oil drilling. Idan Ofer, whose family controls The Israel Corp. and who serves as Better Place's chairman, said he saw no contradiction between his oil and clean-tech holdings. Film giant Kodak "knew about digital photography. And look what happened. They still went bankrupt because they didn't do anything about it," observed Ofer. "There are many examples. I don't want to be there."

The only problem is, the World needs technology that is devoid of exploitation!
Where is the Beis HaMikdash?! - Technology of the Real World!
For whatever its worth for the time being - Go Israel!

Sinai: A Home For Noahides and Jews

Parashas Behar [and Bechukosai]: Shem, Moses, and Sinai – Jethro’s Eternal Path

Rabbi David P. Katz

This week is a double Torah Portion, and we are focusing on Behar; which, initially, introduces us to not only what could be possibly the single biggest Torah quality for the Jewish People, but for the Noahides as well: ‘’Hashem spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai saying: Speak to The Children (“Bnei”) of Israel and say to them…”

An interesting observation could be made that with the reiteration of the double language connotation of “Israel” and “and say to them” shows that Hashem is speaking to the Jewish People and simultaneously addressing the [Future] Noahides, as this would qualify the “say to them” along with the fact that as the Ramban says, “Righteous Converts” [Noahides are also coined as such with this term – Rashi, Talmud Avodah Zara, Radak; in light of the Noahide “Aravnah” – “Sar Metzudas Tzion” who sold the Temple Mount to David] are to take a Spiritual Name, and thus would be included in the general term, “BNEI (Children of) Yisrael, and therefore coming into the classification of Sinai Command and Revelation. The example of this would be the word ‘’Yisrael’’ itself: as Jacob is the mundane name while he merited Yisrael in spirituality, such is the endeavor of the Noahide, who in particular connects to Sinai, and can strengthen this bond with his Spiritual Name that his soul identifies with. The Noahide thus is included in Sinai Revelation, and this can be hinted at with the word “Bnei” (“sons of”) which can double as “those who are of the spiritual name”: Bnei Yisrael (as Bnei can take two paths of meaning; literal and figurative). Of course we don’t leave the obvious meaning of Bnei Yisrael referring to the Jews, yet we are left with two distinct paths of understanding. In conclusion, we find that the Sinai Revelation is directly mentioning the Jews while specifically including the Noahides; thus the double connotation is to include a double meaning in “Bnei Yisrael” to make the Sinai Revelation complete, for Jews and Noahides, as they will be the two Nations who will glorify God and uphold the Torah for the World and its repair. Another example of how Sinai comprised of the two Nations is in the proclamation of “Naasah V’ Nishmah (We will do and We will listen; again the simple meaning the Jewish People and the creative expression refers simultaneously the Noahides through their representation at Sinai are included in the vocalization, yet again showing the harmony between the two Nations) which can be seen as a dual/mutual declaration by both Noahides and Jews, one in the literal and the other through the practical; Jews and Noahides.

The Rambam makes this point especially clear in the work of Torah Law the “Mishnah Torah” that a “Noahide” by his own volition is not the ideal Noahide, for he has come to the Seven Laws based on basic human logic which is something that comes to the exclusion of the Divine Principles involved. What the Rambam goes on to clarify is that the proper vehicle for one to acquire the Path of the Noahide, is to practice being a Noahide as it was commanded to Moses. “As it was commanded” is a double entendre: the literal command to Moses is the proper way of the Noahide, while the other connotation “as it was commanded” is spoken as a matter of fact, thus as it was commanded to Moses! [And by no other means, person, or revelation].

An interesting point of observation through the study of Shem with usage of the Ancient Midrashim, is that Shem and Sinai [for the purpose of Revelation of Torah to the World] had become synonymous. As the Midrash relates, Shem was Blessed with the Divine mission of embedding Torah for the World eternally upon his exit from the Ark and entering the New World, which would be built by oath around two main Torah principles: Righteousness and Kindness. Shem took upon himself this task and began by prophesying Torah for 400 years while searching for the seed that would make Torah flourish and bring the World to Sinai that would only be upstaged by the Revelation of Moshiach (Messiah), something that the Talmud states that even the last stages of History will involve Shem, as he is destined to be a part of the End of Days in the mold of the Righteous Priest. (A Righteous Priest by definition is defined by “Kindness” – Priestly and “Righteousness” – Righteous, hence: Righteous Priest who is identified by Righteousness and Kindness) After Shem found Abraham and gave over the Priesthood (Righteousness that befits Abraham’s Kindness) along with the secrets of the Torah in entirety, Shem ventured off to prepare the World for eternal Torah. The Torah would be given and be identified at Sinai; Shem went to merge with Sinai so as to become one with Torah. The effect of such is that Shem was actually part of the Sinai Revelation (along with the fact that he was incarnated part of his soul to Moses) and went through the Giving of the Torah. Shem was found there for a total of 1300 years until King Solomon would come and relieve Shem of duty by completing the mission of “Mastering the Torah”, for Solomon told over to Shem the entire Torah, as depicted in his three Books: Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Songs; it would be these three Books that would sum up the entire Torah and Shem would incorporate the entire Torah experience into his being upon which he would be free as a soul for the Torah was now in possession on Earth for eternity. The mission was now complete, and the Torah could now flourish until the End of Days, where the World would begin to be filled with Knowledge of God, with origins at Sinai, of which there was participation consisting of Jews and Noahides. The Jews were there in the literal sense and the Noahides were there in the Spiritual sense since their entire foundation is predicated in the Command of Moses on Sinai. As the Noahides are a part of Sinai, why weren’t they there? Why do we find the presence of the Noahide through allusion and allegory only? Look for Jethro. Jethro is the Noahide representative of Sinai. For all of Time, the Noahide has a Sinai Revelation operative who was there to receive from Moses what would serve to be the bedrock of Noahides forever: …”as it was commanded to Moses” (the Torah[for all of Mankind]). The only glitch in the system is that Jethro was not at Mount Sinai at all, for he had left just before the Giving of the Torah. (Which happened to be in his Parsha!) Jethro had no choice to be absent from Sinai, for as the first Sinai Noahide, he was the first to receive the Torah as it was given to Moses. What we know about Jethro, is that he was the quintessential Noahide in every way, a true student of Shem, Moses, and Sinai! Jethro kept every foundational precept as commanded Moses, all of which is authentic for the fact that he was not at Sinai.

Now we have a clearer vision of Sinai works in the learning aspect of our Parsha: Bnei Yisrael (as was expressed within Mount Sinai) and how this term speaks to both Jews and Noahides. In the literal sense, the Law was given to the Jewish People, as Bnei Yisrael. However when we take the allegory, and the expressive side of Torah (Lefi Pshuto [ peripheral view from the absent data] as opposed to pshat[ simple meaning]) we can see that in the language of the Text (when free of context and connotation, which is the purist’s technique of deriving “Hints” in Torah and finding allegorical meaning, which does not negate the simple meaning, rather it comes to include an extra innovation) there is room explicitly in the Text to include the Noahide: “Those of the Higher Spiritual Name.” Jethro was just this concept, as he was not at Sinai, yet he was connected spiritually as well as having the Spiritual name, for he chose to become Jethro from “Jether.” The fact that Jethro does not take away from his observance in Sinai, as now he could receive from Moses in the highest sense, and he fits our interpretation of the allegorical “Bnei Yisrael” – which figuratively he was – even to the Jewish acceptance point, as he was considered part of the Nation! ( Jethro however did yet another rectification by maintaining his Noahide existence and individuality, a repair that would have eternal benefit; the two separate Nations are imperative, and thus maintain allegorical truth as distinct from literal truth; the foundations of Torah mandate such distinction.) The basic premise of this week’s Parsha is that Sinai was a World changing event, and to say that it was solely Jewish is the denial of the Noahide and his Torah. As we have explained, the Noahide must always find himself standing at Sinai, receiving the Torah from Moses to make his path set before him. The irony is, is that he was not there nor was he ever, for Jethro left – intentionally! What one is forced to say, is that the Noahide was there at Sinai, in the ultimate Spiritual sense, identifiable if at least by the Spiritual Name that his soul identifies with, like Jacob and Jethro before him. One should not be surprised to find in the Text sublime hints of Absolute Truth that reflect the nature of Sinai as being a World event, which must include Jews and Noahides together.

Sinai was the Giving of the Torah even though Torah would be aroused before and after Sinai (Revelation of Shem and Elijah). However we can take refuge that we all stood at Sinai in some way shape or form. Whether it be the Jewish Beings, Shem who merged within the Mountain itself, or the Noahides who were present within the Spiritual Essence: we all stood at Sinai, and just as the Torah contains many levels, we can see in the Torah who these levels express the attendance of those at Sinai. Within Jethro’s leaving of Sinai there is an equal and opposite reality of Moses’ stature there; such is everyone’s reality based on Sinai. From Sinai and levels of Torah we can all trace our authentic roots back to Sinai, for we all found a way to get there: Shem stood there for 1300 years, the Jews wandered there, and the Noahides spiritually were there perhaps the whole time – and the Torah was a witness to this fact, which is expressed in peculiar Language that hints of a duality in the literal and allegorical realms. Thus there is a simple solution should there be a question or doubt with how to personally identify with Sinai upon accepting the Torah: not only were you there, but the Torah in its foundation is identified by Sinai, for the event was staged when Shem headed for Sinai far before anybody had showed up. There is a concept in Torah: The end deed was first inn thought. Therefore one should not ponder how he is relevant to accept Sinai at the later stages of Creation, for the merit was established a long long time ago, when Shem finished his mission of bringing the Torah to the World, for Shem found the ultimate Torah like all of us: from his days at Sinai…something we all can share and relate to with Shem, the first member of Sinai, who upon the big day, realized he had plenty of company. Now are job is to realize this truth and realize we are in good company too, as we link with the pioneer of Sinai: Shem ben Noach. Perhaps this is how we can aide Shem in his mission, which is to bring Sinai into the End of Days, something that would complete the Sinai Mission of Shem that was built on Righteousness and Kindness; and by cultivating this task, we can never feel alone again, for we can always go back to Sinai, as the Torah is our witness – on many levels.

Generation Moshiach: The Face of a Dog

Known Dog Advocate and Consumer
The Generation of Moshiach will have the face of a dog:

On Britain's Got Talent, the World fell in Love with Jonathan who has a voice that many think has even trumped his predecessor SuBo (and the comparisons are plentiful).

Watch Jonathan, and witness his second place a dog. This is the generation we live in.
(there is Kol Isha, but this guy is special)

Here is your Finalist.

...and now the Champion: Fido

Only in 2012...The Dog imagery is only growing daily it seems; people are beginning to prefer Dogs over Mankind - Let alone that after Gay Marriages (Ahlo Barack!) we should begin to see Dog Marriages. (we already have dog bar mitzvas - Oy Vey!)

...and at least we have a dog lover (in the most literal sense) leading the Free World! - B.Obama

..."The Face of the Dog" - Moshiach BeKarov!

Party Like Its 1967 (In 2012)

It is really looking like 1967 all over again: Politcally the tones are the same, with all the same people, players, Land [at stake], etc. Bibi on the otherhand has the total freedom to do whatever he feels; expect the Pax Judaica Empire to fully Blossom starting in 2012 with Jewish History empowered by the hands of Erev Rav and fueled with full backing of Erev Katan neurosis.


In May 1967, in brazen violation of previous truce agreements, Egypt ordered UN peacekeepers out of the Sinai, marched 120,000 troops to the Israeli border, blockaded Eilat (Israel’s southern outlet to the world’s oceans), abruptly signed a military pact with Jordan and, together with Syria, pledged war for the final destruction of Israel. May ‘67 was Israel’s most fearful, desperate month. The country was surrounded and alone. Previous great-power guarantees proved worthless. A plan to test the blockade with a Western flotilla failed for lack of participants. Time was running out. Forced to protect against invasion by mass mobilization – and with a military consisting overwhelmingly of civilian reservists – life ground to a halt. The country was dying. On June 5, Israel launched a pre-emptive strike on the Egyptian air force, then proceeded to lightning victories on three fronts. The Six-Day War is legend, but less remembered is that on June 1, the nationalist opposition (Menachem Begin’s Likud precursor) was for the first time ever brought into the government, creating an emergency national-unity coalition. Everyone understood why. You do not undertake a supremely risky pre-emptive war without the full participation of a broad coalition representing a national consensus. Forty-five years later, in the middle of the night of May 7-8, 2012, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shocked his country by bringing the main opposition party, Kadima, into a national unity government. Shocking because just hours earlier, the Knesset was expediting a bill to call early elections in September. Why did the high-flying Netanyahu call off elections he was sure to win? Because for Israelis today, it is May ’67. The dread is not quite as acute: The mood is not despair, just foreboding. Time is running out, but not quite as fast. War is not four days away, but it looms. Israelis today face the greatest threat to their existence – apocalyptic mullahs publicly pledged to Israel's annihilation acquiring nuclear weapons – since May ’67. The world is again telling Israelis to do nothing as it looks for a way out. But if such a way is not found – as in ’67 – Israelis know they will once again have to defend themselves, by themselves. Such a fateful decision demands a national consensus. By creating the largest coalition in nearly three decades, Netanyahu is establishing the political premise for a preemptive strike, should it come to that. The new government commands an astonishing 94 Knesset seats out of 120, described by one Israeli columnist as a “hundred tons of solid concrete.” So much for the recent media hype about some great domestic resistance to Netanyahu’s hard line on Iran. Two notable retired intelligence figures were widely covered here for coming out against him. Little noted was that one had been passed over by Netanyahu to be the head of Mossad, while the other had been fired by Netanyahu as Mossad chief (hence the job opening). For centrist Kadima (it pulled Israel out of Gaza) to join a Likud-led coalition whose defense minister is a former Labor prime minister (who once offered half of Jerusalem to Yasser Arafat) is the very definition of national unity – and refutes the popular “Israel is divided” meme. “Everyone is saying the same thing,” explained one Knesset member, “though there may be a difference of tone.” To be sure, Netanyahu and Kadima’s Shaul Mofaz offered more prosaic reasons for their merger: national service laws, a new election law and negotiations with the Palestinians. But Netanyahu, the first Likud prime minister to recognize Palestinian statehood, did not need Kadima for him to enter peace talks. For two years he’s been waiting for Mahmoud Abbas to show up at the table. Abbas hasn’t. And won’t. Nothing will change on that front. What does change is Israel’s position vis-avis Iran. The wall-to-wall coalition demonstrates Israel’s political readiness to attack, if necessary. (Its military readiness is not in doubt.) Those counseling Israeli submission, resignation or just endless patience can no longer dismiss Israel’s tough stance as the work of irredeemable right-wingers. Not with a government now representing 78 percent of the country. Netanyahu forfeited September elections that would have given him four more years in power. He chose instead to form a national coalition that guarantees 18 months of stability – 18 months during which, if the world does not act to stop Iran, Israel will. And it will not be the work of one man, one party or one ideological faction. As in 1967, it will be the work of a nation.

 Will Bibi lose his crown to Moshiach -  who ultimately recognizes the King of Kings HaKadosh Baruch Hu!
