IS COMING



THE WAR WITH AMALAK and social justice

Ki tetze Bs”d

 

It says in the parsha. ”You shall not have in your bag different weights, a large and a small. You shall not have in your house different measures, a large and a small. But you shall have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shall you have; that your days may be lengthened in the land which Yhv”h Elohech”a gives you. For all who do such things, and all who do unrighteously, are an abomination to Yhv”h Elohech”a. ” (25:13-16)

 

The prophets say much concerning social injustice and economic oppression. Isaiah says:

 

Woe to those who join house to house and field to field, they draw close till there is no place, and you will be settled alone in the midst of the land “ (5:8)

 

They create a situation where there is no where for the poor man to live, as Rashi explains. This type of action is robbing the poor of their land. They allow themselves to act in this selfish way by denying that the land actually belongs to GOD, and that the poor inherently have a right to a place to live as explained by the Radak and Ibn Ezra. By joining field to field the small independent farmer is put out of business by large commercial industrial farming corporations. In safer Eliyahu, Eliyahu ha Novi (Elijah the Prophet) says that because of interest taken on houses, and stealing fields from this there will be orphans and widows in sackcloth.1 Rashi teaches us that this commandment of having ”a perfect and just weight”. Is in The Torah next to the commandment of destroying Amalak. So to teach us Amalek comes when Yisrael is not honest in their Business practices. The Magid of Koznitz teaches that if your ”yetzer hora” (evil inclination) says to you “teshuva” (returning to GOD) of sinners is of no value, be happy with the pleasures of this world. Live only for today, who knows what tomorrow will really bring. Your ”yetzer Hora” (evil inclination) tells you things as these so to make you fall into sadness over your service of GOD, making your heart bitter toward things of the כבוד (glory of) GOD. Know that it is because of these things that that GOD told us to ”remember what Amalak did to you on the way”.2

 

Remember what Amalek did to you by the way, when you came forth out of Egypt;

 

How he met you by the way, and struck at your rear, all who were feeble behind you, when you were faint and weary; and he did not fear Elohem”e. Therefore it shall be, when Yhv”h Elohech”a has given you rest from all your enemies around, in the land which Yhv”h Elohech”a gives you for an inheritance to possess, that you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; you shall not forget it. ”(25:-17-19)

 

Yuhuda is Givurah (severity), but the seed of Yisrael is rachamim (mercy). Because of this they need to draw upon themselves the flow of “din” (judgment) so their hearts will remember to war with the nations. By the sword Amalak will arouse great jealousy in Yisrael. This is all necessary as again the nature of Yisrael is “rachamim” not “din”, its not their nature to war as their nature is peace. It’s for this same reason Rabbi Akiva as said before will recognize his enemy from the past. (A incarnation of Rabbi Akiva, who suffered so much under the Romans. Will come back in the end of days) These things are necessary to arouse the anger needed that will allow vengeance to be taken on the enemies of Yisrael.3 Peace has been offered many times by Israel to the Palestinians and the Arab world in general. For the most part the Palestinians have only responded with rockets. Concerning this it must be said that the Palestinians are not our baby that we have to nurse along so to give birth to a Palestinian state. They are an enemy state that daily shoots rockets at us, so should be dealt with appropriately. We need to wage total war when attacked. This seems to be all they understand. As good will gestures like leaving Gaza have only brought more rockets. This is no game. One must never forget that the Ramba”m teaches in his Mishna Torah that the Jewish people when they enter the land of Israel are responsible then to fulfill 3 mitvot (laws) : Appointing a king over themselves, to wipe out the descendants of Amalak and build GOD’s House (the Temple).4 With our righteous Mashiach quickly in our days.

Netanyahu and Ehud Barak ARE SPECIAL FORCES
August 27, 2012, 11:03 am
Filed under: small news | Tags:

Forty years before becoming Israel’s top decision-making duo, Benjamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak first made news on the blood-stained wing of a hijacked Belgian airliner.

Disguised as tousle-haired mechanics, with slim pistols concealed beneath their white overalls, Israel’s future prime minister and defence chief had stormed the Sabena jet at Lod airport near Tel Aviv as part of Sayeret Matkal, the secret special forces regiment which Barak, then just aged 30, led.

Netanyahu, eight years younger, was largely untested in counter-terrorism operations.

It was the first time I had ever held a handgun,” he would later remember.

The dozen or so clambering commandos killed two Palestinian Black September gunmen and overpowered two grenade-wielding women with them.

One of the 100 hostages died but the raid was hailed a master-stroke, the only casualty among Barak’s men being Netanyahu, shot in the arm by a comrade — “He took it just fine,” the unit’s then deputy chief, Danny Yatom, recalls dryly.

In February 1973, Ehud Barak, the commander of the elite Sayeret Matkal unit, obtained photographs and precise information on the whereabouts of three senior PLO leaders.Barak and his team immediately began planning on an operation to eliminate them. The plan they came up with was to land from navy ships on the Lebanese coast and infiltrate into Lebanon disguised as tourists, with some of the commandos to be disguised as women (Barak was disguised as a brunette woman). During the operation, three of the highest-level PLO leaders, surprised at home, were killed, along with other PLO members.

 

These missions are of the few by Sayeret Matkal on which details have been made public, crystallizes for many Israelis the view that Netanyahu and Barak still today operate as a covert team, crafting strategy with a maverick intimacy born behind enemy lines and a clubby elitism that eclipses their markedly divergent personalities and politics.

12. About three times as many new homes were sold in the United States in 2005 as will be sold in 2012.

 

13. While Barack Obama has been in the White House, home values in the United States have declined by 12 percent.

 

14. According to AARP, 600,000 American homeowners that are 50 years of age or older are currently in foreclosure.

 

15. Right now there are now 20.2 million Americans that spend more than half of their incomes on housing. That represents a 46 percent increase from 2001.

49. In the United States today, somewhere around 100 million Americans are considered to be either “poor” or “near poor”.

 

50. It is now being projected that about half of all American adults will spend at least some time living below the poverty line before they turn 65.

 

51. Total home mortgage debt in the United States is now about 5 times larger than it was just 20 years ago.

 

52. Total consumer debt in the United States has risen by 1700 percent since 1971.

59. Today there are approximately 25 million American adults that are living with their parents.

 

60. The U.S. dollar has lost more than 96 percent of its value since 1900. You can thank the Federal Reserve system for that.

  1. As Financial Armageddon recently point out, so many homeless people are pooping on the escalators at San Francisco’s Civic Center Station at night that the escalators are breaking down and repair teams have been called in to clean up the mess. As the economy gets even worse, will scenes like this start playing out in all of our cities? FROM WHTC.com:

 

 

 

We cannot handle 4 more years of movement in these directions

NOW IS THE TIME FOR REAL CHANGE

If America is to survive as a Great power.

OBAMA HAS TO GO !

God’s Presence is hidden IS HERE

Updated May 5th 2019

The United Nations under a facade of respectability systematically targets the State of Israel – the one country on this planet that is at the forefront of fighting against the tyranny and oppressiveness engulfing this world. Who do you folks think you are? You, the unscrupulous NGO’s march under the banner of humanity to further your Jew-hating agenda as you support the Jihadist inferno. And if all this was not enough pseudo academics , willfully join in this perversion and corrupt the pursuit of knowledge as you painstakingly and unabashedly trample on the truth. You, who close your eyes to actual crimes against humanity, and close your ears to the genuine cries of suffering caused by tyrannical, psychotic leaders, yet instead reward the architects of evil with positions of honor within the unsacred walls of your citadels of united deceit. You, who elevate the vile terrorist organizations and the countries that host them into civilization. Those who try to justify and finance the Islamic cult of terror and death to destroy the remnants of the Jewish nation . Your pretense at saintliness is contemptible. There is a God and the day will come when your evil will come back and bite you and that day is not so far away PLEASE GOD !

He will redeem us from the exile because of her The “Shechinah” (Divine Presence). This is as it is written, “And even also this when you are in the land of your enemies” (Lev. 26:44). And the prophet says because of Her when He saw in his prophecy the pressure of the Jews was immense, He said, “This I return to my heart, therefore I shall forgive” (Lam.3:21)

Think about it.

The Jewish people prayed, desired, yearned and waited almost two thousand years to return to The Land of Israel,and have finally done so. The idea of ruling the land was a unrealistic dream for over 2000 years. Now, The Jewish State has been established with the permission of the nations of the world in the ancient homeland of the Jewish people in the Land of Israel after centuries of hatred and terrible anti-Antisemitism.

even after the Land has been miraculously built up strongly economically and militarily, scientifically technologically. Israel brought a unspoken language back into the world. Something never done before, in its security and defence industries, economic, science, advanced medicine,technology and agriculture. Israel is one of only 6 nations of the world that has satellite launching capacity. To say the least this is all uncanny

As incredible as this may be, even after witnessing the fulfillment of these dreams, Even after the Holocaust many Jews chose to to live among gentiles rather than in their own God given ancestral homeland.

 

There is a strange phenomena we see involving Jewish people and their support for the State of Israel. Intelligent and sensitive Jews are not enraged over troubling events in Israel as Terror attacks that ravage the land. And when European, American and Israeli leftists hold positions and make comments that in the least border of Anti-Semitism. And to this These Jews are silent or support those who are or appear as enemies of their people. Their self-destructive attitudes stem from a curse that often befalls Jews when they talk about Israel – a feeling that we are not entitled to the land of Isreal. Like a beautiful and intelligent woman who somehow consistently dates men who are destructive for her, because she unconsciously does not feel she merits better, the problem of entitlement lies at the core of the Israeli discussion. These faint-hearted and clueless Jews ask, ” Is Israel really ours?

Or Did we steal it from the Palestinians ?

Even Arafat’s Swiss bank accounts and those of the rest of Palestinian leaders ,suicide bombers, even Hamas’ stated goal of the destruction of the Jewish state and its replacement with a Muslim theocracy, none of these nasty facts gets in the way of their feeling that we are undeserving.

The sages tell us there will be survivors among those Jews that cannot overcome the temptations of the lands of exile such as the illusionary promise of riches and return to the land of Israel. But there will be a cost for this “prostitution” of their religious values. The midrash Tanchumah tells us close to 8 out of 10 Jews who are not in the land of Israel at the time of the final redemption shall be killed.

God intended when he gave the Torah that it should be one’s life. Most of its commandments are dependent on living in the land. Torah is not meant to only be a part of one’s life. But Torah is one’s life.

That you may love the Lord your God, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave to him; for he is your life, and the length of your days; that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”

(deut 31)

The Ten commandments were “chiseled” by the finger of God the Hebrew word for “chiseled”, “charut”, also means “freedom” (in Hebrew); the tablets free us from spiritual death and its spiritual damages, the horrors of exile if we live a Torah life, then we can be truly free. Rather than being slaves of the exile.

Rabbi Aba says in the Gemora that there is no greater sign that the time of redemption is before us than when the land of Isreal brings forth her fruit, this is such a time.

But the exile presses hard on us in these later days. So in this period special Torah leaders are required. The sages say in the days preciding the coming of the Mashiach isolence shall increase. These extraordinary Torah leaders will need to harness this insolence , chutzpah to go against the brazenness of those who desire to make Israel a nation like any other nation and a state like any other when in truth Israel can only exist as a Holy nation.

The period preceding the coming of Mashiach is called “ikvay Dmashichah” the “Heels of the Messiah”. The heel is that part of the body which touches the ground. During this period in order to prepare for the coming of the Messiah in a way of great mercy we need to create “facts on the ground”, be doing the right thing. We have to be active in standing up for the honor of Hashem. There is great merit to the prayer and learning in the Bait kanesset but this is a time for “facts on the ground” in “ikvay Dmashichah” we must stand up against the things God despises and actively work hard to promote those things God wants and desires.

Know, that the eternal enemy of the Jews is amongst the Jews themselves. The Moses told us that “Those that hate you shall rule over you” (Vayikra 26:17) – “I will set up enemies only from amongst you and against you” (Rashi). Isaih says “Those who destroy you and waste you will emerge from you” ( 49:17). The Jewish people individually and as the nation of Israel must act increasing Holiness in the world and towards bringing the Redemption. In order to do this we must stand up against these “ eternal enemies” that pretend to be working for the good of the Jewish people, when the exact opposite is true. These false leaders are souls from the “Erev Rav” (mixed multitude that left Egypt with the Hebrews, being its bankers and magicians) They reincarnate with the Jews in each generation and always are trying to bring about evil against the Jews, who they are acting like they are trying to help. The Kol HaTor teaches that It is more difficult confronting the Erev Rav than dealing with Yishmoel and Edom, they are really the greater foe. This evil must be properly recognized, assessed and understood,  in order to combat it. The “erev rav” is not going to go away on its own, at least with out doing too much damage first. Know, evil’s historical continuity, like its expression in the tragedy of the Holocaust can only be understood on the metaphysical level, it is only from this perspective can evil be understood. Rabbi Soloveitchik states that during the 1930s and 1940s the role of Amalek was played by Nazi Germany led by Hitler, and later the same role was played by Nasser and the Mufti, evil has many faces.

This is no time for standing on the sidelines. The Kingship of God must be brought down, revealed in this world. So stand up for it , show the will of God is alive and well in this world and we are ready for Mashiach.

I am not talking about displays of in passionate Dogmatism applied to religion.

This does not sit well with most people and it certainly does not make a good impression. The time for religious separatism and exclusivity is over. We are all in the same boat and its about time to break down all the barriers between Jews and let the Glory of God and his Torah become known to all the Jewish people and the world. Its time to take the Torah out of the Shtetel , even one’s like BeniBarak and and Maih Sharim and reveal the Torah on main street. The lives of our people and the welfare of the world depends on this. The is the meaning of “ikvay Dmashichah” the time to bring it down is now. We meant to be at “light unto the nations” its about time we start shining some of that light. This will not be accomplished by blind faith without any semblance of rationality. Our role sanctifying God, requires us to recall, internalize and work with the Chuchmah of Hashem in the context of understanding of Torah and its carefully structured mitzvot accordingly that one’s being by the awareness of the Divine actually becomes a “no-self”. Then “On that day, He will be One, and His Name will be One.” (Zachariah 14:9)

Only I warn you exceedingly to take heed and guard yourselves very, very much to remember from where the commandments came to you. You should not forget the Revelation on Mount Sinai, nor all the things which your eyes saw there – the thunderings, and the lightnings, His glory and His greatness and His words that “ You have heard there out of the midst of the fire”

Deuteronomy (4:15)

God made that Revelation at Sinai so that you might learn to fear Him all

the days and teach your children during all generations.”

In the Six Day War the Jews finally won back after 2000 years of exile the Temple Mount. Now that is a monumental thing of Biblical proportion. The Temple Mount is the holiest place in the entire Universe, the direct channel to God by which all blessing flows to the earth, given as a wedding present from God Himself.

It says in the Torah “I set before you a blessing or curse”: two extremes. Blessing implies success. Both of these are before you to attain, according to what you choose Understand it is not possible to settle for , to be middle, or mediocre in ones spirituality. Quite the contrary, there are only two possibilities, the two extreme points: obeying the Lord’s commandments (=blessing) or disobeying them (=curse), or in other words, following the way of God’s Teaching or leaving this way and following other gods. Contrary to popular opinion there is no third or other way. We are left only with the choice of one of these two options. Mediocrity, is not an option. There is no middle way and no vacuum. This is a necessary dichotomy, offering us the choice of one of these two options. The middle road, serving G-d partially, half way, or a third of the way, or a quarter of the way, or as he put it, revolving around mediocrity, is not an option.

Why would it be be OK that some Jews live in Eretz Yisrael to protect and secure the Holy Land? And for others to just stay in exile and not help bring the redemption ? Why should they then merit to benefit from all the good of Eretz Yisrael? Be a partner in the final redemption, feel a part of the Holy Land!

Exile was terminated in 1948

God has given us some big wake up calls as the World Trade Center on 9/11. It is time to make known people need to stand up for the Good and we can see the forces of Judgement otherwise manifest in very destructive ways, God should help us. 9/11 opened up a lot of door and hearts to talk about the most important things, but few have stood up to the calling. The World Trade Center attack of 9/11, was on the 23 of the Hebrew month of Ellul. In Ellul this really should be understood as a wake up call.

The world’s economy took a big blow. It seems to be going down the toilet. And there has been a wave of wars that could easily result in a world war ending with tragic catastrophe before the Messiah will be revealed. These are big wake up calls.

THESE FACTS SHOULD ALSO SERVE AS BIG “WAKE UP CALLS”

Israel is the 10th ranked army in the world. Two things about Israel they are Ultra Prepared and Ultra Not Stupid !

America has a [radar] base in Southern Israel, with the most superior radar system the World has ever seen. It is now being said that America is linking their systems up with Israeli anti-missile technology.

President George W. Bush promised — and President Obama delivered — untold numbers of GBU-28 bunker busters, which can tunnel through concrete before exploding deep underground. President Bush is also said to have sold Israel several midair refueling aircraft.

 

Israel is fully capable of wiping out Iran literally, by Electric Warfare, Advanced Virus Systems, New Weaponry,  and all the force of the IDF etc. Bibi and Ehud are not messing around in the media, their threats are real.

YnetNews.com reported:

Any Israeli attack on Iran will open with a “coordinated strike, including an unprecedented cyber-attack which will totally paralyze the Iranian regime and its ability to know what is happening within its borders,” American blogger Richard Silverstein wrote Wednesday. Silverstein claims to have obtained an Israeli briefing document outlining the Jewish state’s war plans against Iran, which, according to him, include the launching of dozens of missiles, an aerial attack, a sophisticated cyber attack and even the assassination of senior Iranian military and intelligence officials. 
According to Silverstein, an Israeli strike on Iran will include a “barrage of tens of ballistic missiles” launched from Israeli territory towards Iran, as well as a barrage of “hundreds of cruise missiles” which will “pound command and control systems, research and development facilities, and the residences of senior personnel in the nuclear and missile development apparatus. The attack will open with an unprecedented cyber-attack which will take the internet, telephones, radio and television, communications satellites, and fiber optic cables leading to and from critical installations—including underground missile bases at Khorramabad and Isfahan – out of action. The electrical grid throughout Iran will be paralyzed and transformer stations will absorb severe damage from carbon fiber munitions.
U.S. Army Col. Warner Farr said Israel’s nuclear arsenal has 400 nuclear and thermonuclear weapons. Farr said Israel’s navy could deploy nuclear weapons on the fleet of three German-built Dolphin-class diesel submarines. Farr said based on unclassified sources that “Israeli new submarines are “national deterrent’ assets.” The report said Israel would base its nuclear naval force near Oman with which Israel has informal relations. It is located strategically close to Iran.
Die Welt, Hans Rühle, who directed the planning department of the German Defense Ministry from 1982 to 1988, expressed almost supreme confidence that Israel’s air force could obliterate Iran’s main nuclear sites. He believes that with 25 of its 87 F-15 fighter planes and a smaller deployment of F-16 jets, the Israelis could destroy all six of Iran’s key sites.

Bibi (Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) and (Defense Minister Ehud) Barak are dead serious.”

To save lives Iran must back down !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Standard & Poor’s has upgraded Israel’s credit rating to A+.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that the upgrade was the international economic community’s “certificate of honor and of responsibility regarding investments in Israel.”

“This is a message to investors. This is a good country,” he said. “This is a country that in complete contrast to the global trend is improving and maintaining a correct and responsible economy, and therefore it is worthwhile to invest in it.”

Israel is a goldmine, finding Shale Oil reserves, Natural Gas, High Tech, etc…Israel is busting out in every way.

Know, that Israel’s Ministry of Agriculture’s Research Institute has made many great achievements producing staggering results in long and better shelf life for fruits and vegetables. That allows products to be shipped by sea instead of air freight, thus reducing export costs. Many of Israel’s agriculturists also avoid chemicals and achieve larger crops with the aid of the use of colors. In addition, Israel’s water shortage prevents cultivating grass for cattle food, yet the ‘milk yield’ of Israeli cows is the best in the world!

 

The prophet Zachariah said of the Days of Mashiach:

On that day, He will be One, and His Name will be One.” (14:9)

At this time the, Ineffable Name of God, is too holy to be pronounced as it is spelled: yudhayvavhay. Instead it is pronounced as Adon”y

The Ineffable Name yud-hay-vav-hay, as it is spelled, is actually made of two parts, yudhay and vavhay.

Yud-hay-vav-hay, the unified Name is revealed in periods of history when God’s Presence is revealed and known.

The divided Name is when made of two parts, Yud-Hay and Vav-Hay

in periods of time when God’s Presence is hidden.

SOD KABALLAH ON PARSHA SHOFTIM AND SOCIAL ACTIVISM

BIG SECRETS IN PARSHA SHOFTIM call to action

Shoftim                                                                 Bs”d

It says in our parsha “Judges and officers shall you appoint in all your gates, which Yhv”h elohech”a  gives you, for your tribes; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.” (16:18)

With the establishment of the State of Isreal in our days. For the Jewish people, these words once again take on a very important and urgent significance.

The prophet Hosea warns us concerning this:

Hear the words of YHVH oh children of Israel, for YHVH has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, for there is neither truth nor loving kindness nor knowledge of ELOHEME in the land” (4:1)

The land is given to do righteousness and justice upon but instead the opposite is being done swearing and lying, thus says the Radak. You should know that the sages teach us three things are given on condition, the land of Israel, the Holy Temple and the kingdom of David. ” These are given on the condition you keep my covenant”.1 The land is God’s, on this condition he gave it to us. It is not an outright gift. Our presence in the land of Israel depends on our observing the commandments. Rabbi Arbanel says that the phrase ” inhabitants of the land ” tells us of GOD’s concern with commandments pertaining to the land. The land is the source of GOD’s mercy to the poor who are major beneficiaries of the laws pertaining to the land. In Chupat Eliyahu we learn 3 gifts GOD gave to Yisrael, but they are recieved through yesurim (sufferings). These gifts are Torah, Aretz Yisrael and Olam Haba. The building of the bait ha Mikdash (the Holy Temple) is an inheritance in merit of Torah learning.2 One must never forget that the Ramba”m teaches in his Mishna Torah that the Jewish people when they enter the land of Israel are responsible then  to fulfill 3  mitvot (laws):  Appointing a king over themselves, to wipe out the descendants of Amalak and build GOD’s House (the Temple).3 The prophet Micah says:

Hear this You heads of the house of Yaakov, and you rulers of the house of Yisrael who condemn justice and pervert all that is straight ” (3:9)

The Radak explains that this rebuke is directed at the heads, the rulers of Israel, because of their perversion of justice. The Metsudat David comments that what ever is straight, these judges say is crooked. A coalition of 350 rabbis labeled the former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert as ”anti-Jewish” and “hostile to Judaism” following his orders to act against two synagogues and a Chabad mobile unit. How can such a man come to stand as the leader of the nation of Israel ? How can Israel  police officers trample young protestors while on horseback like what happened in Atzmona ?

Theres no need to give the Fatah Palestinian Authority money  to pay an entire year’s salary to 3,500 members of Hamas’s terrorist forces.  amounting  to $16 million.Who can imagine a worse desecration of graves of  Jewish  martyrs who died in the Arab terrorist attacks than releasing terrorists as “good will gestures”, It says in our parsha :

:               “And if they reject your peace offer, but will make war against you, then you shall besiege them painfully;”  (20:12) 

The head of the Israili army Ehud Barak many times has said its time to give away parts of Jerusalem, they want to give Parts of Yahudah and Shomron to the terrorists. What do they want, more rockets ?

Once American presidential candidate Mike Huckabee when in Israel  stated      “it concerns him ”that some in the U.S.  tell  Israelis they can’t live where they want  in their  own country.” , “a Palestinian state in the middle of the Jewish homeland is ”virtually unrealistic.”,

We need to focus on as Moshe  Ya’alon  and others have been arguing that even unauthorized outposts ”are completely  legal,” and we need to look into the organization Peace Now  and other foundations for taking money from foreign  powers  intent on swaying Israeli public opinion and government policies. 

It should not be that the Israeli government allowed Sderot to be a “ghost town” and those who remain to be killed by Hamas hands because of their failure to act strongly. It is time the Israeli government stop supplying their sworn enemies with water, electricity and food. Let their patron state Iran build for them power plants and water desalination plants, instead of giving them weapons. Now is the time to seal the Palestinian entity off and deal with it as with a enemy state: ban Palestinian migrant workers, stop issuing any visas to Palestinians, block all shipments, and wage total war when attacked. Isreal must retaliate with full force upon any infringement of Israeli security. Isreal must fulfill the words of our parsha “Judges and officers shall you appoint in all your gates, which Yhv”h elohech”a  gives you, for your tribes; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.” (16:18).  Then we will see as its written in our parsha  “I will raise up for them a Prophet from among their brothers, like you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall declare to them all that I shall command him. “ (18:18) With our righteous mashiach quickly in our days.

INTRO TO KABBALLAH AR”I

lets

UPDATED JULY 16TH 2018

Rabbi Yitzchak Luria ben Shlomo Ashkenaz’s father was related to the famous Maharshal, was born in the Old City of Jerusalem in 5294 (1534) in what is now the Old Yishuv Court Museum, and passed away on the 5th of Av 5332 (1572.

Rabbi Yitzchak Luria  known as the Ar”i, a acronym standing for Eloki Rabbi Yitzchak, “the G‑dly Rabbi Isaac”; Ar”i is also the Hebrew word for “lion.” No other master or sage ever had this extra letter aleph, an abbreviation for Eloki (G‑dly), prefixed to his name. This was a sign of the esteem in which his contemporaries held him. Later generations, fearful that this appellation might be misunderstood, explained the aleph as standing for Ashkenazi, indicating that his family had originated in Germany, as indeed it had. Alternatively, some explain that the aleph stands for adoneinu, “our master.” To this day, among Kabbalists, Rabbi Yitzchak Luria is referred to as “Rabbeinu HaAri” , “HaAri HaKadosh” (the holy Ari), “the Ari,” or “the Arizal”.

The following story is told about the birth of the Arizal:

Rabbi Shlomo Luria lived in Israel…One day  in the study hall alone learning Elijah the Prophet appeared to him and said, “I have been sent to you by the Almighty to bring you tidings that your wife shall conceive and bear a child, and that you must call him Yitzchak (Isaac). He shall begin to deliver Israel from the kelipot (“husks,” forces of evil). Through him, numerous souls will receive their tikkun (rectification). He is also destined to reveal many hidden mysteries in the Torah, and to expound on the Zohar. His fame will spread throughout the world. Take care, therefore, that you not circumcise him before I come to be the sandek (the one who holds the child during the circumcision ceremony).”

He finished speaking and disappeared. Rabbi Shlomo Luria went home, but did not reveal this secret to anyone, even to his wife. When the Ari was born, the house was filled with light, and on the eighth day he was brought to the synagogue to be circumcised. His father searched everywhere to see if Elijah had come as promised, but he did not see him. Everyone was urging the father to proceed, but he replied that not all the guests had yet arrived.

An hour went by, but Elijah still did not come.

An hour went by, but Elijah still did not come. Then he thought bitterly to himself: My sins must have prevented him from fulfilling his promise. But as he was crying, Elijah appeared and said, “Do not cry, servant of God. Draw near unto the altar and offer your son as a pure sacrifice dedicated entirely to Heaven. Sit on my chair, and I shall sit upon you.” Whereupon, invisible to everyone present except Rabbi Shlomo, Elijah sat on his lap, received the child with both hands, and held him during the entire circumcision. Neither the mohel nor those assembled saw anything but the father holding his baby. After the circumcision, he again promised Rabbi Shlomo that the child would bring great light to the entire world, and then he disappeared.

Rabbi Shlomo passed away when the Ari was still a child. In 1541, unable to support the family, the Ari’s mother traveled to Egypt with her children, where they lived with her brother, Mordechai Francis, a wealthy tax collector. The boy’s brilliance continued to shine in pilpul (Talmudic dialectic) and logic. Rabbi David ibn Zimra (the Radbaz) taught the Ari both the revealed and the concealed aspects of the Torah. The Ari also studied under Rabbi Betzalel Ashkenazi, the author of Shitah Mekubetzet.

By the time the Ari was fifteen, his expertise in Talmud had equaled or surpassed that of all the sages in Egypt. At this age he married his uncle’s daughter, and then spent the next six years in intensive study with Rabbi Betzalel Ashkenazi. It was around this time that a copy of one volume of the Zohar came into his hands. He studied the Zohar in seclusion for another six years. He then isolated himself completely in a house near the Nile for another two years. He remained alone, not speaking to any human being throughout the week. He would return home on the eve of Shabbat, just before dark. But even at home, he would not utter a word, even to his wife. When it was absolutely necessary for him to say something, he would say it in the least possible number of words, and then only in the holy language —-Hebrew. The Ari and his wife had a number of children, including a son named Moshe, who passed away at a young age, and a daughter, who married the son of Rabbi Yosef Caro. Details are sketchy regarding his other children.

He continued to progress in this manner until he was worthy of divine inspiration (ruach hakodesh). On numerous occasions Elijah the Prophet revealed himself and taught the Ari the mysteries of the Torah. Every night his soul ascended into the heavenly realms. Troops of angels would greet him to safeguard his way, bringing him to the heavenly academies. These angels would ask him which academy he chose to visit. Sometimes it would be that of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, and other times he would visit the heavenly academies of Rabbi Akiva or Rabbi Eliezer the Great. On occasion he would also visit the heavenly academies of the ancient prophets.

Elijah told him the time had come to move to Safed…

In 5330 (1570), after he had attained an extremely exalted rung of holiness in Egypt, Elijah told him the time had come to move to Safed, a city in the Galilee in the north of Israel. There he would meet Rabbi Chaim Vital, the man to whom he was destined to transmit the keys to the ancient knowledge.

When he first arrived in Safed, the Ari joined the circle of students who studied Kabbalah under Rabbi Moshe Cordovero (Ramak). His discipleship was short-lived, for the Ramak passed on soon afterwards.

After the passing of the Ramak, the Ari began teaching Kabbalah. The Radbaz, who had also settled in Safed, warned him not to teach Kabbalah in public. However, later the Radbaz recanted after receiving a sign from heaven that he had erred in his ruling. (Some say that Elijah the Prophet himself visited the Radbaz and revealed to him that he had erred.) Soon a group of the leading Kabbalists in Safed gathered around him, among them Rabbi Chaim Vital, who became his chief disciple.

Rabbi Chaim Vital writes in the introduction to his Shaar HaHakdamot:

The Ari overflowed with Torah. He was thoroughly expert in Scripture, Mishnah, Talmud, pilpul, Midrash, aggadah (the non-legal portions of the Talmud), maaseh bereishit and maaseh merkavah (esoteric disciplines). He was expert in the language of trees, the language of birds and the speech of angels. He could read faces in the manner outlined in the Zohar (vol. 2, p. 74b). He could discern all that any individual had done, and could see what they would do in the future. He could read people’s thoughts, often before the thought even entered their mind. He knew future events, and was aware of everything happening here on earth, and what was decreed in heaven.

He knew the mysteries of gilgul (reincarnation)—who had been born previously, and who was here for the first time. He could look at a person and tell him how he was connected to higher spiritual levels, and his original root in Adam. The Ari could read wondrous things [about people] in the light of a candle or in the flame of a fire. With his eyes he gazed and was able to see the souls of the righteous, both those who had died recently and those who had lived in ancient times. Together with, and from, these departed souls, he studied the true mysteries. It says in “Shar Gilgullim” : On many occasions I walked with my teacher through a field, and he would say to me, “This person was called such-and-such, and though he was a “Sadeek” and Torah scholar, because of a certain sin he committed he was reincarnated into this rock, or this plant” Even though he never knew the person nor inquired about him after his death,  when we inquired concerning these people we always found that he was right.

From a person’s scent, he was able to know all that he had done. (See Zohar, vol. 3, p. 188a.) It was as if the answers to all these mysteries lay dormant within him, waiting to be activated whenever he desired. He did not have to seclude himself to seek them out.

All this we saw with our own eyes. These are not things that we heard from others. They were wondrous things that had not been seen on earth since the time of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. None of this was attained through magic, heaven forbid. There is a strong prohibition against these arts. Instead, it came automatically, as a result of his saintliness and asceticism, after many years of study in both the ancient and the newer Kabbalistic texts. He then increased his piety, asceticism, purity and holiness until he reached a level where Elijah would constantly reveal himself to him, speaking to him “mouth to mouth,” teaching him these secrets.

The Ari’s Writings

The Arizal himself wrote relatively little. From his own hand we have novellae on two Talmudic tractates. These have been included in his teacher’s Shitah Mekubetzet. His writings in Kabbalah were included in Rabbi Chaim Vital’s Eitz Chaim, and are marked by Rabbi Chaim with the preface, “Found written in manuscript.” There is also a commentary on a small section of the Zohar, and a few hymns for the Sabbath, from the master himself. The bulk of his teachings were recorded by his disciples in numerous works, primarily by Rabbi Chaim Vital. His disciples also recorded his customs in a work known as Shulchan Aruch HaAri, published in Venice in 5440 (1680).

Every custom of the Ari was scrutinized, and many were accepted…

The teachings of the Ari were afforded the status of a rishon (primary authority). Every custom of the Ari was scrutinized, and many were accepted, even against previous practice. The Magen Avraham (Rabbi Avraham Gombiner, 5395–5443 (1635–1683)) accepts many of the Ari’s customs as legally binding. In deciding disputes that had remained unresolved for centuries, he often cites the Ari’s custom as the final authority.

Main Students

Included among the main students of the Ari are Rabbi Chaim Vital (Calabrese), Rabbi Yisrael Sarug, Rabbi Shmuel de Uceda (author of Midrash Shmuel), Rabbi Yitzchak Cohen, Rabbi Masoud HaMaaravi, and Rabbi Gedalia. Even among these select few, only Rabbi Chaim Vital was permitted in his master’s lifetime to write down the Ari’s teachings.

After Chyim Vital died, Rabbi Avraham Azulai and Rabbi Yaakov Semach dug up the notes Chyim had took from learning from the Ar”i which he asked to be buried with. after permission was given from Heaven in a dream.

WHO WAS THE SPIRITUAL MASTER THEY CALL THE HOLY AR”I (LION) WELL HERE IS WHAT IS MOST WELL KNOW STUDENT HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIM :

A few times that I was walking in the field with my teacher, the Holy Ar”i, may his memory be for a blessing, and he said to me: Behold, there was a certain person, named so-and-so, who was a tzadik and a Torah scholar, but because he committed such-and-such a sin during his lifetime, he is now incarnated into this stone, or this plant, or animal. My teacher, of blessed memory, never knew these people, and we ,his students would investigate the history of these departed souls, and we would find that the facts about the deceaced person to be in accordance with his words. I am not going to go into this at length, because I could never recount all the times this happened. Other times he would gaze at a grave five hundred cubits away, amongst twenty-thousand other graves, and he would see the soul of the person buried there standing on the grave. He would tell us that so-and-so is buried in that grave, and he is undergoing such-and-such a punishment for having committed such and such a sin. We would inquire after this person, and always find it to be as my teacher said. We were witness to many amazing things like this.

The Ar”i said that every commandment is associated with one of the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and that when someone performs a commandment, the letter associated with that commandment shines on his forehead, replacing the letter shining on his forehead from the previous commandment he performed. But If he performs the commandment of charity, the letter associated with it does not disappear as fast as the letters associated with other commandments, but rather continues to shine on his forehead the whole week.

 

I rarely copy other peoples work,

but this is something special,

Great merit from this to the  Government of Israel for

publishing this teaching.

CHAZAK UBARUCH

Studying the literature of the Kabbalah and turning to the teachings of mysticism and the Zohar puts off many excellent people. This distrust is quite understandable, in light of the generation and particularly the academic society in which we live, where rationalism and a scientific approach predicated upon the five senses prevail; hence anyone who delves into another dimension is viewed askance.,

In addition to this point there are other arguments to justify the negation of the Kabbalah. Below I shall present the major ones, along with the counter-arguments that justify the study of Kabbalah in our time.

The first argument asks, “Why Kabbalah?” Is there any halakhic obligation to study the mystical?

Rabbi Moses Cordovero (Remak), in Or Ne’erav (p. 17ff.) bases this halakhic obligation on Maimonides’ understanding of the mitzvah implicit in the First Commandment, “I, the Lord, am your G-d.” These are Cordovero’s words:

One of the things commanded by the Torah is that a person apprehend his Maker to the best of his intellectual ability, as it is said, “I, the Lord, am your G-d…” (Ex. 20:2). Maimonides explains this commandment at the beginning of his book [Mishne Torah, Book of Knowledge, I, 1] as follows: “The foundation of foundations and firmest pillar of wisdom is to know that there is a First Being, that He caused all beings to be.” Maimonides undoubtedly meant that this commandment includes apprehending the order of the beings that stem from Him… And so he included this in his concise language: “to know that there exists a first cause and that He brings into being all else that exists.” Thus he meant to include in this commandment the need to know also how He causes all things to be.

Remak maintains that the commandment means actual knowledge and apprehension of the Deity to the extent that one’s subjective intellectual ability allows, for otherwise how are we to interpret Maimonides’ words “to know” and the positive obligation that follows from the commandment, “I, the Lord, am your G-d”? It turns out, however, that one need not go so far. In the opinion of R. Hayyim Vital, in his introduction to his work, Etz Hayyim, the obligation to study Kabbalah stems from the commandment to study Torah:

In the plain sense of the Torah [peshat], its narratives, laws and commandments as plainly written, there is no recognition of any obligation to apprehend their Creator, may He be blessed. Moreover, there are commandments and injunctions that the intellect cannot countenance … and nearly most of the Torah’s commandments, especially their detailed laws, the rational mind does not tolerate; so, wherein lies the glory of the Torah, its beauty and greatness?

Elsewhere (Sha’ar ha-Gilgulim, preface 11), R. Hayyim Vital says quite clearly and explicitly: “‘Studying Torah counterbalances them all,’ and it has four interpretations, their anagram being PaRDeS: peshat, the plain sense; remez, allusion; derash, homiletical interpretation; and sod, the mystical; all of them must be studied,… and if one of these four is lacking to the best of a person’s ability, his soul will transmigrate on account of this.”

These words are perhaps based on the particular way the Zohar views the Torah in its entirety. The Zohar (Be-Ha’alotkha 152) perceives the Torah on several levels, just as one could see and relate to a person only superficially, on the level of his clothes, or one could look deeper at the person’s body, or even deeper at his character, into his soul. With the Torah, the superficial vision, of the clothes alone, is the narrative aspect. Looking deeper, at the body, reveals the commandments and precepts. Looking deeper still, one reaches the soul-the mystical. Thus studying the mystical is an integral part of studying Torah, hence the basis for this obligation and its importance.

The second argument is: Danger, Kabbalah!

The Sages were notedly dubious about studying Kabbalah, saying among other things, ” ‘Do not delve into that which is too wondrous for you’ (Ben Sira)– You have no business dealing with hidden secrets” (Hagigah 13a).

Rabbi Isaac De Latash responds to this argument in his preface to the Zohar (pp. 1-4):

To resolve this difficulty, let me inform you that there is no contradiction in what has been said. For the kabbalistic study of the Torah is the quest for true knowledge of the Creator, known through his deeds, and the knowledge of how He created the world through His glory-and this is the study of the ten spheres [sefirot], except that we have no business looking into the highest sphere, the supreme crown (keter) and that which is above it, which is the highest of high, called the En Sof … but investigating the other spheres, … that which has been revealed to us of Him, … is for us and our offspring, … for here contemplation and education were permitted.

In other words, “that which is too wondrous for you”-the essence of the Creator-is not for us to investigate, but His actions-His impact on the world through the angels and the sefirot-are permissible, indeed are our duty to study and try to understand.

The third argument is: Kabbalah, only after all else! It has been ruled on the basis of the words of the Sages (Hayyei Adam, 10.12; Rema, Yore De’ah 246.4), that a person should not study Kabbalah until he has filled himself with the study of gemara and the posekim, as Rema said: “Until he has filled himself with meat and wine … prohibitions and waivers, and the laws on the commandments.” In addition, Kabbalists wrote that one should not study Kabbalah until one has reached the age of forty, for it says, “By age forty one acquires wisdom” (Ethics of the Fathers 5, 21).

These contentions, as well, can reasonably be rebutted. To begin with, R. Hayyim Vital (in his preface to Etz Hayyim) cited the Ari, R. Isaac Luria, to the effect that one should not learn from or rely on kabbalistic works written after the time of Nahmanides (except for: Etz Hayyim, Mavo She’arim, and Shemona She’arim), which apparently include the source prohibiting the study of Kabbalah before age forty. Furthermore, the Ari, the greatest of all Kabbalists, did not impose such a restriction nor did he set any time limit or quota on studying Kabbalah. With regard to the argument about “filling oneself with the study of gemara” before entering the world of Kabbalah, we cite the response of Rabbi Yitzhak Isaac of Ziditchov, (mentioned in the essay, “Kol Omer Kera” by R. Isaiah Zelig Margalit):

Did not the Sages say (Kiddushin 30a), “A person should always divide his years in three, one third to Bible, one third to Mishnah, and one third to Talmud?” The gemara raises the question, “But does a person know how many years he will live?” … Therefore, it appears that this should be interpreted as applying to one’s days, dividing one’s time each day in three. This is what we do when we study Kabbalah: each day we fill ourselves with Mishnah and posekim, and then we devote ourselves to Kabbalah. For if one has to wait until one is filled with Mishnah and posekim, who knows if one will live that long? Thus it can mean nothing other than each day, individually, as interpreted by Tosafot (Gittin 9).

In other words, each day one is to fill oneself with Mishnah and posekim, in a relative, not absolute, way. This seems quite reasonable, in my humble opinion, since the definition of “filling oneself” is not quantifiable; and even if so, that is only for the very privileged few. It is inconceivable that such a considerable portion of the Torah–the mystical side– of which it is said, “Let all who wish come and partake” (Mekhilta de-Rabbi Simeon bar Yohai 19,2), should be reserved only for the few and not for the entire people.

The fourth argument is: Kabbalah is only for the genius! The Kabbalah deals with things that are beyond the intellectual capabilities of the average person, and any attempt to study it can only lead to error and heresy.

The first part of this argument stems from ignorance, for anyone who has hasome exposure to Kabbalah knows that one need not be a genius in order to have the intellectual level required to understand it. Quite the contrary, studying gemara, and especially understanding its logic, is far more difficult and demands greater analytical ability and power of concentration.

As for the danger of mistaken perceptions, Hida (Hayyim Joseph David Azulai) wrote (Etzba Moreh 44): “Studying the Zohar is the most elevated of studies, even when one does not comprehend what it says and even if one reads it wrong.” This is apparently based on the Zohar (3.85), freely translated as follows: “A person who wishes to study Torah and has found no one to teach him, yet nevertheless studies Torah out of love for the Torah but mumbles it for lack of knowledge-each and every word of his ascends on high, and the Holy One, blessed be He rejoices in each word … and they are called arvei nahal [lit. willows; a pun on arev, meaning pleasing” (cf. Remak [R. Moses Cordovero], Be-Or Ne’erav, p. 14, for further explanation).

The fifth argument is: Why Kabbalah in our generation? Our parents and grandparents managed without Kabbalah, so who are we in an era that is based primarily on material achievement to enter the deep spiritual dimension of the Torah?

That is precisely the reason. Many of the things said in the Zohar and in kabbalistic literature stress that precisely as the messianic era approaches one has more need of studying Kabbalah, and that only this study will “hasten the redemption of Israel.” The best known are the words of the prophet Elijah to R. Simeon bar Yohai (cited in Tikkunei ha-Zohar, at the end of the sixth tikkun): “How many people will be nurtured from your work, when it becomes clear in the last generation at the End of Days; and by virtue of it ‘you shall proclaim liberty throughout the land’ (Lev. 25:10).” Liberty, or Redemption, will come about in the land by virtue of the Zohar.

A broad explanation of this approach is provided by the words of Tel Aviv’s former Chief Rabbi, R. Hayyim David Halevi (in his preface to his work, Maftehot ha-Zohar ve-Ra’ayonotav):

Apparently ideas based on plain sense and exegesis will not suffice to nurture “the last generation” [based on Deut.29:21] and occupy their minds… Precisely this last generation, that will reach the greatest heights in its scientific education, soaring to the heavens in its wisdom, is likely to become giddy and lose its spiritual balance… In a time when the plain sense of the Torah and its commandments do not suffice, then the secrets of the Torah will come to nurture one’s thoughts. If one thinks that one’s ostensibly “great” intelligence cannot fathom the commandments of levirate marriage and halizah in their plain sense, then the teachings of the mystical will come and disclose before him mysterious worlds, remote and obscure realms, that no living person will ever be able to comprehend without these disclosures… and hidden inner worlds within one’s own soul, vast spiritual resources that include the living and the dead, and only then one will understand.

In the light of this we can now understand the words of Rabbi Kook (Orot ha-Kodesh, I, p. 141):

Revealing the mystical in “the last generations” to purify the hearts and occupy the minds with sublime thoughts whose origins are in the secrets of the Torah, will become, in the last generation, utterly essential to the preservation of Judaism. The descent of the generation, which led to the necessity of employing this lofty means, is itself the ascent.

  It is known that the Arizal on the fifth of Av in the year 5332,  ascended to Heaven in the 38th year of his life.  It is wrttten that the reason for his early passing was as follows: When the Arizal started teaching his student Rav Chaim Vital, he took an oath that he would not conceal anything from him. One time Rav Cham Vital asked the Arizal to explain to him a deep passage in the Zohar. The Arizal,
however, did not wish to reveal it, for it was a very deep secret of the hidden Torah. Yet Rav Chaim Vital told the Arizal that he was bound by oath to do so. But the Arizal responded that if he did reveal it, than Rav Chaim would regret it greatly. However, since he was required to do so, he told Rav Chaim to say
that he wished to learn the Zohar nonetheless, and he did.

  Once having revealed the secret, however, the Arizal said that it was decreed in Heaven that he would die that year, and that Rav Chaim had caused it. He said that he was not saddened about his own fate, but about his students, for how could he leave them prior to their souls being rectified? His students were very sadden by this. However, he said that as long as there was peace amongst them and in their households, without any strife at all, the Angel of Death will not be able to approach him.

  But after five months, one erev Shabbat, a fight broke out amongst the students’ wives and the wives told their husbands. This finally resulted in the students
fighting themselves, and in doing so, they violated the warning of their Rav. That night the Arizal went out to the fields with his students to greet the Shabbat, and he returned to the “beit knesset” with an angry countenance. He sat through the entire davening as if he was in mourning. When Rav Chaim saw his Rebbi in such a state he got scared, because this was not the way his rav would normally act. When he asked him for an explanation for his anguish, he responded that in kabbalat Shabbat he saw the Satan, who quoted to him a pasuk that hinted to his demise. He therefore realized that the decree had
been sealed, and it happened only because of the conflict that broke out amongst his students. For as
long as there is peace between them, no harm could befall them. On erev Shabbos Parashat Matot
Masei, which took place on Rosh Chodesh Av, the Arizal took ill from a plague that had stricken at that time. His students and the great men of the city prayed excessively, and when they came in to see him he asked about his student, Rav Chaim Vital. They said to him that he was going from one beit haknesset
to the next to pray for the Arizal. The Arizal said to tell him that he cannot nullify the decree, because it was a decree that came about because of an oath that cannot be nullified. He told them to call Rav Chaim Vital so that he could bless him. Once again, he warned them not to argue and that shalom should always rein amongst them, and they should honor one another. From this we see that even
though a decree of death was cast in Heaven, nevertheless if there would have been peace and strife would have been avoided, the “midat hadin” would not have been able to strike them.
