Half Shekal Silver coin

The Torah discusses different kinds of donations for the building of the Mishkan. One donation every Jew donated was a mere half a shekel.

This raises the question–why the need for the half a shekel campaign?

The emphasis here is on every single taking part in the building of the Mishkan. We need to view each and every one of us as a piece in the puzzle.

The Israel Antiquities Authority has announced that a rare half-shekel silver coin was found in an excavation in Jerusalem. A silver coin that was used to pay the half-shekel head tax to the Temple was found in what was the main drainage channel of Jerusalem in the Second Temple period. Before reading the Scroll of Esther, all devout Jews will contribute a sum of money, “a reminder of the half shekel” which was paid by every household in ancient times for the purpose of maintaining the Temple. Today, this sum is translated into local currency and donated to the needy.

The Holocaust was the price of Redemption – See the math !

After the Holocaust one has the right to beg G-d for some answers just to keep from going insane, as how can God allow such cruelty ? Perhaps it is this extenuating circumstance alone along with the years of grueling Jewish suffering at the hand of our twin brother (Esau) that gives us the right to hear an answer that earlier generations could not hope to hear. So let us contemplate. What is the 1/2 of a shekel coin given before purim about ?, How does it relate to the Final Redemption ?

The business deal alone, the transfer of 10,000 kikar silver to Achashvarosh, the King of persia, and the handing over of Achashvarosh’s ring (seal of his authority) to the wicked Haman along with the money to carry out the dirty business of genocide were all done with Achashvarosh’s name missing. This is reflective of the name of god not appearing in the whole book of Ester. This deal was bigger than the story of Purim in the story of Ester. So Achashvarosh’s name here was omitted.

 

Its written in the Bible :

Every thing that opens the womb in all flesh, which they bring to the Lord, whether it is of men or beasts, shall be yours; nevertheless the first born of man shall you surely redeem, and the firstling of unclean beasts shall you redeem. And those who are to be redeemed from a month old shall you redeem, according to your estimation, for the money of five shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, which is twenty gerahs.

(Numbers 18:15-16)

Before the Golden Calf, there was a mitzvah (commandment) for giving a Half shekel with silver coins. The original purpose of this donation was to redeem Josef from the slave owners to whom he had been sold. Yet, since those slave owners were dead at the time the mitzvah was given, the donation was given as a penitence to the Creator’s Mishkan (desert Tabernacle). The ten brother’s who were partners to the sale received a total of 20 dinar one shekel was worth 4 dinar. This means that Josef, Rachel’s first born was sold for 5 shekels. It makes sense that the redemption of every first born after Josef would also be with five silver shekals. Because 10 brothers benefited from the sale, each brother received 5/10 or 1/2 of a shekel from the sale of their brother to the Yishmaelim (Arabs). This was the true original sin of the Jewish people. The day of his sale was the 9th of Av (the day both Temples were distroyed). The silver that is placed in the Temple treasury as a redemption for Josef who was sold into Egypt, is really Josef’s property since he was stolen from himself in the sale. Therefore when the mitzvah ( half shekel) was first introduced to Yisrael, we were being given the tikun (repair) for the sin of the sale of Joseph. In short we were buying 1/11 of ourselves back from the Yishmaelim (Arabs), but depositing the money instead in the Treasury of the Mishkan. The calculation is as follows. 600,000 Jews in the desert gave a total of 300,000 shekals. These 300,000 shekals divided by 5 shekals/ Josef = 60,000 Josefs.

Since all 603,550 Jews participated in the Golden Calf, except for Hur and the Levi. No longer would it be possible for the 600,000 Jews at the sin of the Golden Calf to simply donate their with a contrite heart for the sin of selling Josef, purchasing back 1/11th of themselves from slavery. Now all 600,000 would need this pidyon ( 5 shekel-price of redemption) for the sin of the Golden Calf. In order to accomplish this, 6 million would need to give Half a shekel. 6 million would give 1/2 a shekel equaling 3 million shekels. These 3 million shekels would then redeem the 600,000 men who participated in the sin. There would have needed to be at least 12 to 14 million Jews at Sinai to accomplish this task so that the number of Jewish males in the world would add up to 6 million. This possibility of self-redemption from the Sin of the golden calf would need to now wait until the End of Days.

We are told that Moses collected 100 kikar of silver for the 100 Adanim (sockets) holding the Krashim (planks) together for the structure of the Mishkan + 1775 shekel of silver for an assortment of other vessels. Since the 1775 Shekals correspond with the 3550 individuals above 600,000 who gave it, the 100 kikar of silver must have been given by exactly 600,000 Jews. Therefore 300,000 shekel must be equal to 100 kikar. This means that we now have a conversion factor of 3000 shekel per kikar. From this we see that Haman placed 10,000 kikar times 3000 shekal/kikar in the King’s Treasury equaling 30,000,000 shekel of silver. How many Jews did he purchase? 600,000 Jews at the Sin of the golden calf, became like Josef, needing to be redeemed because of the Sin of the golden calf. We remember that Josef was sold for 5 Shekals. Therefore, Haman gave 30 million shekels divided by 5 Shekals/Jew equaling (purchasing) 6 million Jews for slaughter.

 

THE NAME OF THE KING ACHASVAROSH IS NOT TO BE FOUND IN THE TRANSACTION. THE NAME OF GOD IS NOT FOUND IN THE WHOLE MAGGILLA. HAMAN REPRESENTS THE “ACCUSER”

HERE IS THE MAGGILLA HE IS CALLING IN THE “DEBT” FOR THE SIN OF THE GOLDEN CALF

THIS TRANSACTION WAS THE “COST” OF REDEMPTION, FOR THE DEBT OF THE SIN OF THE GOLDEN CALF AS SHOWN ABOVE WAS PAID IN FULL. THIS MADE THE “SLATE CLEAN”, PREPARING FOR THE FINAL REDEMPTION.

The Holocaust makes the Final Redemption not just possible but almost mandatory.

 

THE DEBT WAS PAID IN FULL THE HARD WAY

 

HERE IS THE MATH :

This sin of Golden calf was done by 600,000 souls

600,000 x 5 (shekel) = 3 million shekels

There was needed 6 Million people giving ½  Shekal to redeem the 600,000 who sinned by the Golden calf

Moses got 100 kikar of silver from 600,000 people each gave a ½  Shekal, so

100 Kikar=300,000 Shekals

Haman gave to the King Achasvarosh to kill the Jews 10,000 Kikar of Silver, since we know 100 kikar=300,000

10,000Kikar x 3000 shekals/a Kikar= 30,000,000 Shekals

The 30,000,000 Shekals  that Haman gave gave to the King Achasvarosh to kill the Jews At a redemption rates as it says in the Bible of 5 Shekals a soul bought him 6 million Jews.


Now that Persia-Iran is at it again

It appears this may be the end of the story

 

The Talmud explains, it was the  Half-Shekel — given in the desert that preempted Haman’s attempt to buy the right to destroy the Jewish people of his time.



Counting that which is not Counted

BAMIDBAR בס”ד

This weeks Haftorah  (The portions of the Bible God told the Prophets to have read in public on each Sabbath) begins “ And the children of Yisrael shall be as the sand of the sea that can not be counted or measured “ Yet right in the beginning of our parsha it says “Take the heads of all the congregation of all the children of Isreal by their families houses, numbering of them,  names of all the males by their skulls”.

Now it is known that a blessing does not rest on that which is counted. As the haftorah says “That can not be counted or measured “. At other times all Yisrael were counted by the 1/2 shekel coin each year donated to the Holy Temple in Adar. By doing this the people were never counted, only coins. But what about this counting of the people ?.  We learn from the Shalah Hakodesh in Sni Luchot HaBrit that blessings don’t rest on that which is counted when its measurement is intrinsically physical, being part of the material world. As such numbering by its nature creates limitation, but numbering in context of the spiritual worlds does not impose limitation. Numbers in the context of the spiritual worlds does not imply limitation as each such number advances towards great achievements. So here we don’t have counting as with physical things, but what we have here is as it states counting of “ gilgulatom “ (their skulls). In the Zohar it talks about the eminations from the “ gilgulata “ (skull) of parzufim (structures that eminate and reveal Divine energy). In this context  “ gilgulata “ refers specifically to the aspect of the  parzuf called Arich Anpin (long face), this parzuf is the place of emination and revelation of the will of God. Concerning the skull of  parzuf Atik Yamin (place where delight is eminated from) are great secrets which are seldom heard. Here we can find infinate wisdom. It was spoken concerning the skull by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochi in the last moments of his life in a body on this earth at the idra Zuta. The final gathering of Rabbi Shimon and his companions of the Zohar. This we celebrated a short time ago and each year it is celebrated where he is buried in Maron with at least 200,000 people. It is the largest celebration Here in Aretz ha Kodesh.

From Rebbe Shimon we learn that the skull is full of dew, it contains a membrane that surrounds the brain and a atmosphere. To it is a beard of pure wool containing 13 attributes of Divine mercy. A forehead that functions as supernal will, a eye of providence that is eternally open. Nostrils of His nose to breath life force. The flow of chuchmah (Divine wisdom) is called scent. All wisdom of the world is from the nose of Arich. The beard is made of whats called dikna (conduits). When the dikna of parzuf Atik (place where delight is eminated from) are clear it illuminates the Dikna of parzuf Zier Anpin (Source of emination of the emotional soul) drawing down 13 passages of supernal oil (Divine wisdom). Then in the dikna of Z’a we find there are 22 tikuney dikna (conduits of corrective eminations). It is from there we draw out the 22 letters of the Holy tongue, 22 letters of the Torah and all creation.

So the counting here is more like a recognition of each isrealite being set aside for his supernal purpose from the powers manifest in the “ gilgulata “ (skull). As the shalah said concerning spirtual counting “Each such number advances towards great achievements”. Thus here Moshe is setting aside each individual in Yisrael by their “ gilgulata “ making them sanctified, separated and distinguishing each according to their distinct part in the Holy nation. As Holiness infers separation. So here moshe designates each individual of Yisreal destinguished at the “ gilgulata“ level (his powers, purpose). May it be from this act of moshe designating each individual of Yisreal distinguished at the “ gilgulata“ level (his powers, purpose) there should soon manifest the complete energy of redemption. With the revelation of our righteous Mashiach quickly in our days.



Purim and Redemption

Purim and Redemption בס”ד

Purim is pretty important, it says in gemora Magilla that 48 prophets and 7 prophetess established the Holiday of Purim, and its mitzvot. It is the only thing that was added to the commandments given in the Torah by the prophets. Included among the  prophets commanding observance of purim are Chagi, Zacharia and Malachi. In Gemora Sanhedrin we learn that from Purim we begin to discuss the laws of Pessach as is stated by Rabba to Rabbi Nachman. Rabbi Nachman of Bresslov teaches that Purim itself is a preparation for Pessach, and it protects us from Chumatz on Pessach. To understand this let us look at the mitzvot of Purim. The Mitzvot of Purim may seem less Mystical than waving the Lulov on Succoth or blowing the shofar on Rosh Hashanah, or the Seder of Pessach, but it must be understood that the Mitzvot of Purim such as Hearing the Maggilla, sending gifts to friends, sending gifts to the poor, Having a meal and getting drunk are like the nature of Purim itself, only disguised as something Natural, but being the will of Hakodesh Baruch Hu arise from a lofty place. These mitzvot which seem so common every day things as giving gifts like Purim itself come to remind us of the hidden face of Hashem, that happens around us continually. It is known that there is no chance occurrences. Hashem controls everything there is, and all that occurs. We see this when looking closely at each of the commandments. How blind are the eyes of men to the wonders of Hashem. On Purim we do the mitzvah of sadakah of giving gifts to the poor. And we have the mitzvah of sending “shalach manot” (small packages of Food). These may be small offerings, but they do have a great effect. Similar is the mitzvah of the 1/2 Shekel every Jew has to contribute to the Temple in Adar. This seems to be the idea that a little can go a long way.  The Oar Hachyim tells us that the 1/2 Shekal is not a Physical transaction but works in the Spiritual worlds. It removes the rule of the stars and constellations from upon Yisrael. Concerning giving gifts to the poor “Sadakah” its effects are so far reaching as R. Yeshua Ben Lavi teaches that He who continually gives sadakah will have wise wealthy children well versed in “Agada”. R. Eleazer Ben Yosi Teaches sadakah and deeds of kindness bring peace and good understanding between Yisrael and there father in heaven. R. Yuhuda teaches that sadakah delivers from death. Who can list the merits of a single mitzvah ?  In conclusion R. Yochanan says in the name of R. Shimon Bar Yochi that great is the merit of supporting the needy, it brings the resurrection before its time. Charity “Sadakah” in Hebrew “the holy tongue” comes from the root “sedek” (righteousness). The Zohar teaches that in Aramaic, language of the Talmud, Charity is “zchuta” which is the same word for “merit”. Its degree of merit is according to the needs of the recipients of the charity. Charity is a greater Mitzvah when given where its needed to the needy. Instead of giving Charity to a institution where the majority of the money donated goes into an administrator’s pocket, and only a very small amount of the donation actually helps anyone. Its better to give charity to the needy where its needed, and this truly has great merit before heaven. This is why it is a obligation to send gifts specifically to 2 poor people on Purim. We see here a little of how far reaching the effects of giving a poor person  meal goes. The king Achashvarosh made a huge feast for his subjects 30,000 Jewish people attended, even if Mordichy warned them not to go. This meal angered Hashem greatly. The sages say this meal got the Jews closer to the gentiles and their ways and farther from Hashem.  It was shortly after this that there arose Haman with his evil plans.  Easter’s meal with Mordichy Haman and King Achasvarosh Was direct atonement for the evil meal. So to we are commanded to make a feast during the day specifically on Purim. For no other holiday are we given a special command concerning only its day meal. This draws attention to the correction in the world made by the  afternoon “sudah” (meal) of Purim.  This mitzvah atones for the sins that lead to the evil decree almost causing us to be annihilated by Haman. This meal joins body to soul. Only then is there the special mitzvah of getting of  drunk. “till the point of not being able to tell “cursed Haman from Blessed Mordichy”. At other times such behavior is seen as deplorable. But on Purim we get drunk. Purim comes to remind us of the miraculous nature of nature itself. The Magid of Koznitz teaches that by “sacrit” of Purim we raise those who are fallen. Illuminating the eyes of the sons of Human to learn Torah. Purifying sparks in them by the sanctification of the Divine name. Raising those fallen sparks. Each Purim more are purified. Not purified by merit, but by “Kidusha” of “nachat Ruach” over the miracle of Purim. We learn in Atz Chym from the Ari Hakodesh That Ester is called השחר אילת (doe of the morning). She is described green being the aspect of the “green Kav” which is Bina that surrounds the world. Its from this green kav nature’s nature is created. By this level of revelation we can understand what must be done as never before. This revelation of the shechinah is of such great beauty the Ar’i compares it to a virgin. The Kamarna Rebbe teaches Ester was like a green “etrog”, as She was green. Ester dressed in Malchut. Rabbi Aslag explains concerning this That the color of the illumination of Chuchmah in Malchut is called Ester. It is as gold-green, the color of the Etrog. Green like Gold is Chuchmah in “Chassadim”. Mordichy is such a level that His power nullifies power of מרדכי=בלעם+בלק =לאה+רחל +2 This is a very high level such that the Ar’i teaches in Mavua Sharim that in “gan aden” souls have a garment described as זך (shinny). Mordicy and Ester merited this garment while still in this world. This is what it means when it say they had garments of “Malchut”. This is the aspect of אפר (dust of the earth), but as before the sin of Adam. By this “malchut” one certainly takes part in governance, providence of the world. The Aor Enyim reveals that on Purim the Yesod of Abba is revealed going out of the Yesod of “Parzuf” Rachel which is the “magilla”. Purim has the “ateret” (crown) of great gold of Chuchmah, and chesed. It Spreads out Chesed of Arich which dresses in Aba, from the side of “din” of Imma. Concerning this Chesed the Ar”i teaches in Lecutim that light is revealed in the Yesod from “Chesed Elyon”, this is the “leviyaton”. This is the “cord of Chesed” that illuminates in Malchut that is Ester. It is hidden in Abba and Imma in the secret of “ד. The Rashas”h teaches that during the exile of Bavel Zu”n stood back to back in “mochin gadlut” (developed consciousness) of Abba and Imma. After 70 years the “mochin” left Z”a. Then came Mordichy and Ester and the light was renewed. From Shar Cavanot we learn Purim is the time, and preperation right before redemption. It was for Pasach that Ester declared a 3 day fast . No Matzoth was eaten that Pasach. This was unbearable before heaven and evoked mercy that caused the sleep of king Achasvarosh to become disturbed. This resulted in him searching His Chronicles and remembering that Mordichy had saved his life but has not been rewarded. This led to the raising of Mordichy and the downfall of Haman and his evil plans. This brings us back to our original question of how it is that Purim protects us from “chumatz” on Pessach? In the simplest sense R. Shimon teaches “chumatz” is the evil imagination, like a haughty man it rises up. Arrogance can only occur when one does not know who it is they stand before. As Pharoe who represents the evil inclination said “ Who is Hashem ? “ Purim reminds us to see Hashem in all things, especially those things people take for granted as being mundane, coincidence and by “ chance “. This is essential as if we forget, then Hashem has to remind us. As Rashi teaches us that Amalack is the dog Hashem sends to bite us שחו when we forget where Hashem is. To clarify this further we see in Pesicta of R. Kahana that Edom tries to make Yisrael go out side of the Torah path, but beyond the path’s borders Hashem has placed the dogs. We see this idea reflected in the verse from Tihilim “ flatten it flatten it to its very יסוד ( foundation ) “ The sefira Yesod is sometimes call צדק (righteousness), the proper path. Edom would like to push Yisrael off the proper path to the dogs. How important is it to practice righteousness in one’s supposed mundane activities. Their give and take in the physical world. As R. Kahana teaches that you may be certain in a generation whose weights and measures are false will have a wicked kingdom wage war against them. So why does it appear in this world that the wicked seem to prosper ? One’s whose business practices exploit the poor. We can understand this by looking at the relationship between Yomkippurim and Purim. Why is Yom Kipurim כ (like) Purim ? Just as on YomKipurim a lot is drawn and from it is chosen a goat to be given to distract the accusers on high. Like throwing a dog a bone. Then Yisrael is judged favorably. So too is the story of Purim. The wicked one drew  lots trying to find when according to astrology would be the best time to attack Yisrael, Yet this too is only a distraction as there is no such time. As Hashem rules within Nature. From The Ner Yisrael we learn פור (lot)=(2)קמ”ג . Hashem controls the “lot”. The wicked think they are prospering in their evil way , but the truth is as Adam  Ha Reshon Said “ The wicked thrive as grass, all the evildoers flourish in order that they may be destroyed for ever “. This will be when their cup of inequity is full and they inherit their lot.

According to the Arizal yesod is perfected in the world by Mashiach ben Yosef who annihilates Amalek on Purim so that we can celebrate his victory on Shushan Purim, the 15th of Adar. We celebrate Shushan Purim in  cities that were walled during the conquest of Yehoshua bin Nun who was from the tribe of Ephraim, Yosef’s greater son.

After Masiach comes there will be no longer Pasach, Rosh Hasanah or Yom Kippor but Purim will continue to be celebrated. This is a celebration of the absolute and complete destruction of Amalack.

R. Moshe Cordevero is Shur Kumah teaches that from the מאמר (creative utterance) that were made by Mordichy and Ester there was a מאמר by Hashem added to their אמירה (loving type of speech). Becouse a מאמר by Hashem joined to their אמירה the power of Malchut extended to include all the people. Such a מאמר has the power of a ruling of the King. Concering this its tought if you want a ruling of the King call the sefirot of the מאמר that is needed. By this there will be a arrousing of the king without doubt. The Ramcha”l in his safer Tefilot in # 515 says that by אהי”ה Haman was given into Esters hand’s (אהי”ה is a name of the כסא). כסא=אף(anger) R. Manachem Mendal of Chabad taught that when Queen Ester called on Mordichy to gather all the Jews and fast that Mordichy gathered thousands of children and taught them Torah until they became inspired to the point that they proclaimed “ we will stand with Mordichy and the Torah for life or death “ In the same day the decree against the Jews was made null and void, even if it only became known later. It is this type of devotion we must strive for in our divine service. Then evil has no leg to stand upon !  This can be seen in the teaching in Perke d Rebbi Eleazer as there we learn “ with the 4th  from the little finger of the right hand Hashem showed Moshe the ½ shekel, this is the finger of redemption.” It taught in Safer Ha Brit, also by Cyim Vetal and many other places that this finger corresponds to the flow of the sefira Chuchmah    ( Divine Creative inspiration ). The wisdom of Hashem above understanding. At this level there is no free will, only truth. May it be that we all see this fulfilled as the sages say “ till one does not know the difference between cursed is Haman and Blessed is Mordichy “, but all only the revealed will of Hashem, as there is no other ! With the gathering of the exiles and the building of the Bait Hamigdash with our Righteous Maschiach in Rachamim quickly in our days AMEN SELAH !



The Holocaust was the price of Redemption – See the math !


בס”ד

After the Holocaust one has the right to beg G-d for some answers just to keep from going insane, as how can God allow such cruelty ? Perhaps it is this extenuating circumstance alone along with the years of grueling Jewish suffering at the hand of our twin brother (Esau) that gives us the right to hear an answer that earlier generations could not hope to hear. So let us contemplate. What is the 1/2 of a shekel coin given before purim about ?, How does it relate to the Final Redemption ?

The business deal alone, the transfer of 10,000 kikar silver to Achashvarosh, the King of persia, and the handing over of Achashvarosh’s ring (seal of his authority) to the wicked Haman along with the money to carry out the dirty business of genocide were all done with Achashvarosh’s name missing. This is reflective of the name of god not appearing in the whole book of Ester. This deal was bigger than the story of Purim in the story of Ester. So Achashvarosh’s name here was omitted.

Before the Golden Calf, there was a mitzvah (commandment) for giving a Half shekel with silver coins. The original purpose of this donation was to redeem Josef from the slave owners to whom he had been sold. Yet, since those slave owners were dead at the time the mitzvah was given, the donation was given as a penitence to the Creator’s Mishkan (desert Tabernacle). The ten brother’s who were partners to the sale received a total of 20 dinar one shekel was worth 4 dinar. This means that Josef, Rachel’s first born was sold for 5 shekels. It makes sense that the redemption of every first born after Josef would also be with five silver shekals. Because 10 brothers benefited from the sale, each brother received 5/10 or 1/2 of a shekel from the sale of their brother to the Yishmaelim (Arabs). This was the true original sin of the Jewish people. The day of his sale was the 9th of Av (the day both Temples were distroyed). The silver that is placed in the Temple treasury as a redemption for Josef who was sold into Egypt, is really Josef’s property since he was stolen from himself in the sale. Therefore when the mitzvah ( half shekel) was first introduced to Yisrael, we were being given the tikun (repair) for the sin of the sale of Joseph. In short we were buying 1/11 of ourselves back from the Yishmaelim (Arabs), but depositing the money instead in the Treasury of the Mishkan. The calculation is as follows. 600,000 Jews in the desert gave a total of 300,000 shekals. These 300,000 shekals divided by 5 shekals/ Josef = 60,000 Josefs.

Since all 603,550 Jews participated in the Golden Calf, except for Hur and the Levi. No longer would it be possible for the 600,000 Jews at the sin of the Golden Calf to simply donate their with a contrite heart for the sin of selling Josef, purchasing back 1/11th of themselves from slavery. Now all 600,000 would need this pidyon ( 5 shekel-price of redemption) for the sin of the Golden Calf. In order to accomplish this, 6 million would need to give Half a shekel. 6 million would give 1/2 a shekel equaling 3 million shekels. These 3 million shekels would then redeem the 600,000 men who participated in the sin. There would have needed to be at least 12 to 14 million Jews at Sinai to accomplish this task so that the number of Jewish males in the world would add up to 6 million. This possibility of self-redemption from the Sin of the golden calf would need to now wait until the End of Days.

We are told that Moses collected 100 kikar of silver for the 100 Adanim (sockets) holding the Krashim (planks) together for the structure of the Mishkan + 1775 shekel of silver for an assortment of other vessels. Since the 1775 Shekals correspond with the 3550 individuals above 600,000 who gave it, the 100 kikar of silver must have been given by exactly 600,000 Jews. Therefore 300,000 shekel must be equal to 100 kikar. This means that we now have a conversion factor of 3000 shekel per kikar. From this we see that Haman placed 10,000 kikar times 3000 shekal/kikar in the King’s Treasury equaling 30,000,000 shekel of silver. How many Jews did he purchase? 600,000 Jews at the Sin of the golden calf, became like Josef, needing to be redeemed because of the Sin of the golden calf. We remember that Josef was sold for 5 Shekals. Therefore, Haman gave 30 million shekels divided by 5 Shekals/Jew equaling (purchasing) 6 million Jews for slaughter. The Holocaust makes the Final Redemption not just possible but almost mandatory.

10 Nazi war criminals were hung at Nuremberg, all together as one, just as with Haman’s sons, one of the Nazis, Julius Streicher, called out “Purim Fest 1946!”

9-11 was a warning that this is coming. The Hebrew date of 9-11 was the 23rd of Elul, 7 days before Rosh Hashana. On that day exactly seven days prior to Rosh Hashana in the year of the Great Flood, the dove that was sent out for its second flight, it returned with an olive branch in its beak. Rashi plainly states that the olive branch which does not represent world peace, it does represent total economic dependence on the Hand of G-d (sound familier ?). In the words of the Chofetz Chaim, the third world wide conflagration where Yisrael would be tested in our love for God b’chol meodecha (with all your money) had commenced. Take to heart one of the last teaching of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochi  from Zohar Chadash Tikunim as there  we learn in the last exile God will not send us out from the  host  country of our exile till we take alot of money, like we did before leaving Egypt. So it shall be in the last exile. With this money we will be required to make an offering to God. But the evil inclination will come close seeing all the things God has given them, and will wants these things for himself. The will be the time to run from the devil, the desire of your evil inclination. All who are  strong with their Nashama (Soul of Divine intellect) will guard to be close to God. Then God will cause him to bring these things to serve Him. So don’t die in the plague of darkness take what you have and leave your egypt in haste. Another thing to consider In the Book “‘Meir Eini Chucuchmim” It is written in the name of the “ostrovster Rebbi” , he revealed in 1925 :

” That from the time of creation there are only 3 times the time for saying the blessing of “Kidush HaChamah” (sanctification of the sun, which is said every 28 years when the earth sun cycle is completed, since this solar cycle is calculated on a solar/Lunar calendar it happens on different days of the When Biblical year ) falls on the night of Passover.” the redemption from Egypt occured. The 2nd time was the time of Mordichy and Easter in the Bible, when the redempion of Purim happened which led to the building of the 2nd Temple.  The third and final time shall be this coming Passover of 2009. (at the time Purim happened in Persia with Ester and Mordichy, that year because of the evil decree of Haman Passover was declared a fast day, no matzah was eaten. Then the evil decree of Haman was anulled)

With Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the current President of the Islamic Republic of Iran (Persia-Home of Haman, a decendent of Amalek) calling for the state of Israel to be “wiped off the map” and in pursuit of nuclear weapons maybe the time has come and there will be fulfilled the words of the Torah

“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 Elohe”m. Therefore it shall be, when the Yhv”h Elohech”a has given you rest from all your enemies around, in the land which the Lord your God gives you for an inheritance to possess, that you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; you shall not forget it. ”

Deuteronomy (25:17-19)
