ROSH HASHANNAH Bs”d
It is on this day that Adam was created, Avraham and Yaakov were born and died, Sarah Rachel and Channah were visited by GOD delivering them from their bareness and conceived, Yosef went forth from prison. It is also on this day the slavery ended in Egypt. These are all aspects of redemption and this day always has the potential to make this year a time of personal and national redemption for Jewish people ultimately with the coming of machiach may he come quickly in our days. As on Rosh Hashanah the world’s future rests truely on your shoulders. Through your actions last year and more specifically the day it self will the world be given to the growth of evil ( war, pain, death, holocaust etc….) or will it be a year of blessing. The answer is according to our actions and the mercy of GOD. Rosh Hashanah literally means “head of the year”, as the head directs one’s limbs Rosh Hashanah directs the rest of the days of the year. That is why the month of “Tishri” is Libra, the scales. The world stands in the balance to judgment. In the Tanya its explained ” each year there descends and radiates a new and renewed light which has not been revealed before, this light conceals itself its manifestation depends on the actions of those below, Rosh Hashanah is a time of spiritual renewal”. This day you are invited to take part in a meeting of the “joint chief of staff” on an intergalactic scale. The only thing that limits our participation in a positive way is our separation from true knowledge of the creator’s ways of administration, that yields the power called true faith. There are 10 revealed names of Go-d in the Torah and there are 10 times shofar blasts that that are sounded. These names correspond to the shofar blasts., which correspond to the 10 utterances emanations from which the world is created continually and nourished. Through the meditation, listening to these sounds is one way Go-d has given us to participate in this judgment process. The torah is The “blue print for creation”, it was given at Mount Sinai with a never ceasing shofar blast. Rabbi yitzchak Arama teaches “from the shofar we can draw out freedom for physical and eternal life”. The zohar teaches “by the shofar joy is given and GOD has mercy on the world “. With the prayer of Rosh Hashanah our mind and preparations are the only limits.
The Go-d has also told us wonderful powers are revealed to the world by eating lamb, pumpkin,fenugreek,leeks,beets,carrots,longbeans, white beans, black eyed peas, pomegranate, apples, fish head and dates on Roshhashanah inspiring abundance and growth as stated in tractate Kritot.
In the midrash R. Tihilifa states ” on Rosh Hashanah we are made before the Holy one as new beings “
This is the great day of judgment and we have a big job to do. This is a big year there is alot in the balence all can see this.We must change the judgment to one of mercy by our love of each other and GOD by teshuva (returning to GOD) according to his commandments actively on the day of Rosh Hashanah and the commitments we make in our hearts to manifest more of our love for GOD through his commandments in the coming Year. As GOD searches the Hearts and knows our thoughts !.
Blessings of growth awareness and peace to you, the world and all Yisrael in the coming year
Rosh Hashashanah SECRETS
The main thing of the judgment of Rosh Hashanah is to nullify the power of the judgment from the first 3 sefirot of the left of Binna (the strict letter of the law). As by this there is none who can stand. 2 corrections made by blowing of the Shofar include, first there is made the unification of the right and the left of Bina. The Tekia brings forth energy of the right. Shavarim brings the left. This causes the going forth of rachamim the central pilar from Bina. The 2nd tikun is the rachamim of bina being drawn into Z’a by the sound of the truah. This nullifies judgments against the Ruach. Bringing out manifesting this nullification is helped by arrousing strong teshuva against one inequities (lack of kavanah in Divine service), and sin. If one on Rosh Hashanah does not begin to arrouse strong teshuva Hashem then begins to seal writings concerning him. Then the will that Hashem wanted to reveal for that man is withheld and hidden away from him. Then it will even require a greater effort to arrouse. On Rosh HaShanah judgments of duchrah (masculine) cause the restriction of inspiration from above because of one’s sins and inequity. They try to prevent one from arousing his greatest possible Teshuva . But the blowing of the Shofar mitigates the judgment that comes to the right pillar of Chesed of Nakavah. The source of the giving of the Nefesh from being blocked by judments. The judgments from above are nullified as the Shofar causes Hashem to look at these judgments. The fulfillment of the commandments by all Yisrael in Teshuva as the Torah is a “fiery law” nullifies these judgements from above. The Tekia sound arrouses shattering of klipot nourishing of the right pillar, by this is strengthened Emuna. The Shavarim shatter klipot attacking the left pillar, this protects from bad dreams which are corrupt judgment. The Trua shatter klipot nourishing from the middle pillar. This causes new inspiration and perception to flash forth. The shofar sounds then allows for the trancendance of Rachamim (Mercy). On Rosh HaShanah it is like there is eminated the 4th day of creation when אלהי”ם formed 2 great lights. It is the time of completion of the first 3 sefirot of Binna. It was on the 4th day that physical creation was brought forth. It is from the first 3 sefirot of Binna that primary will is brought into revelation in the renewal of the mochin (brain) of Bina for the coming. Year.
But if the tikun of Rosh HaShanah is the mochin (brain) of Binna why is Rosh HaShanah called “Yom Zichoron” Since the Zohar explains that zachor is Chuchmah ?
Rabbi Nachman explains that renewal is the root of memory. By our renewal of our relationship to Hashem in teshuvah there is revelation of the root of memory called Chuchmah .
On Rosh HaShanah the structure of Nakavah is renewed for the whole year. One’s vessel to receive and act upon the will of Hashem is shaped at this time. This is determined by looking at what a man has done all year and his teshuvah on Rosh HaShanah this will shape his 10 days of teshuvah .
On this day it is possible to mitigate great judgments with miraculous power as Sarah, Rachel and Chanah were all barren (physically incapable of having children) they all conceived on Rosh HaShanah. On Rosh HaShanah Yosef was freed from prison and the forced labor of the slavery of Egypt ceased. In Gemore Rosh HaShanah, Rosh HaShanah is described as “a night of watching”. So let us give Hashem some thing really good to look at. Do the best that you can, and Hashem will do the rest. May it be the will of Hashem that this will be a year of personal and national redemption.

Although one sees many contradictions in God’s Providence.
Overcome them through faith above reason, they are benevolent Providence.
One can see this when they have already been awarded the Light that rests above these contradictions.
The contradictions are called Dinim (judgments).
The contradictions can be annulled if one wants to overcome them, by the greatness of the Creator.
Sometimes one can see that later, after one has already been granted faith above reason.
There would not be a place for the Upper Light to be if there is no vessel.
Which is the challenges-“problems”
This means that through the challenges-“problems” of providence, they cause one to elevate oneself upward.
It is as if God gives one a push .
One cannot consent to remain in the state one is in, or where one has descended to.
One must always come out of the state of descent.
One must draw upon himself the greatness of the Creator.
One gradually discovers the greatness of the Creator, until one finds the Names of the Creator, called “the thirteen attributes of Mercy.”
יהוה יהוה אל רחום וחנון ארך אפים ורב חסד ואמת
נצר חסד לאלפים נשא עון ופשע וחטאה ונקה
Now, he is granted Light of God.
One must draw upon themselves the Upper Light.
For all the people in the world, too, since he is mingled with them.
On a certain soul level we are all connected, we are all one.
Through extending the Upper Light over the public.
Although they themselves cannot receive this Light in a revealed consciousness.
Because they do not have prepared vessels for that.
One who causes extension of upper Lights.
Receives from these Lights, too, since he was the cause.
In this manner the greatness of the Creator increases, even touching the wicked.
The Light above reason increases even touching the wicked., they wither away and become annulled.
All the wicked have help from the righteous.
make the connection creating the reality of this Light through good deeds and “the thirteen attributes of Mercy.”.
Make a expansion of the Light.
And the Dinim (Judgments)- and lack of awareness of Divine providence are canceled, since they are replaced by the greatness of the Creator, over and above reason.
When they are worthy of receiving, they will receive the Upper Light on them.
When one strengthens in the toughest situation, one is granted the greatest Lights, called “the greatness of the Creator.”
So when one faces such a time, one faces potential for great blessings.
All the Dinim come only to reveal the greatness of the Creator.
Each individual is incorporated in thoughts and desires of an entire world.
Every person is called “a small world” in itself, for the above reason.
Intellect above reason, or motivation is the Light of Dvekut (Cleaving to God)
One should work with gladness since through gladness the true measure of the everything appears.
Discover the gladness by working above reason.
when one has no gladness from this work, one afflicts oneself with it.
He is sick and tormented at not having gladness from this work.
This is obviously not Gods intent,
Concerning this it is written :
“ And all these curses shall come upon you, and shall pursue you, and overtake you, till you are destroyed; because you listened not to the voice of the Lord your God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded you; And they shall be upon you for a sign and for a wonder, and upon your seed forever.. Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart. “
This work has the taste of dust, that is, it is as unimportant as is dust.
This work is as dust inside the eyes, which blocks his spiritual vision, he sees contradictions in Providence.
Sparks of unconditional love, is called “ joy of Mitzva.(commandment)”
Iranian military leaders say that they have begun delivering weapons to Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank and elsewhere in the region after months of promising increased military support for Israel’s enemies.
A top Iranian military commander confirmed weapon shipments to the West Bank have already begun and that more will be sent to other “Palestinian resistance “
“Arming the West Bank has started and weapons will be supplied to the people of this region,” Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, the commander of Iran’s volunteer Basij force told the state-run Fars News Agency last Wednesday.
Now a 7.6 IN IRAN
THE GOD IS WARNING IRAN TO
A 6.3 magnitude earthquake has killed at least 37 people and injured 850 in south-west Iran, officials say.
Rescue teams have been sent to the affected area, but darkness is hampering rescue operations.
The quake struck 90km (60 miles) south of the country’s only nuclear power station in Bushehr, the US Geological Survey (USGS) says.
However, the nuclear plant has not been affected and is working normally, officials have said.
The quake was felt across the Gulf in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain.
Some 10,000 people are thought to live in the affected area in more than 50 villages, two of which have reportedly been completely levelled.
Bushehr’s governor says 700 houses have been damaged and 200 families affected.
Based on Shiite philosophy Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will not of his own accord deter from building a nuclear weapon.
It is known :
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has declared that the 12th imam will appear soon and that he is to pave the way for this. Iran has stirred up trouble with the west in order to get the west to attack them. He believes he must create great world crisis. This is because Ahmadinejad believes that at such a time the messiah will come and impose Islamic rule and law in the world. He is a dangerous man.
His call for the destruction of Israel may have grabbed headlines abroad, but it is President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s devotion to a mystical religious figure that is arousing greater interest inside Iran. In a keynote speech on Wednesday to senior clerics, Ahmadinejad spoke of his strong belief in the second coming of Shi’ite Muslims’ “hidden” 12th Imam. “Our revolution’s main mission is to pave the way for the reappearance of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi,” Ahmadinejad said in the speech to Friday Prayers leaders from across the country. Ahmadinejad refers to the return of the 12th Imam, also known as the Mahdi, in almost all his major speeches since he took office in August. He is a dangerous man.
Many will deny even after all this knowledge the truth concerning Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s desire to establish a Islamic caliphate (Single Islamic international ruling nation) even by using Nuclear weapons if he deems necessary.
They are as Dan Pearl, the reporter who was also refused to recognize the evil potential of these people and got his head chopped off.
NEGOTIATIONS WILL NOT STOP THE IRANIAN REGIME FROM BUILDING A NUCLEAR WEAPON
A popular overthrow of their government is not probable.
A GREAT EARTHQUAKE SEEMS TO BE THE MOST PROBABLE SOLUTION FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION
Here is a brief history of Iranian earthquakes :
There have been MANY more this is only a partial listing
Rabbi Abulafia teaches that Giving form to matter is a מופת (miraculous wonder). This is giving nature to physicality. This is the nature of the physical world. In the form of matter there are subtle changes. Bringing energy only concealed as potential to become actualized. But how is it possible to nullify something completely ?. But a thing that is close can be brought out. (its easier to accomplish something that is in the way of natures providence. Because the כבוד (glory) of nature is included in it (and not disregarded). It is the completion of what has been prepared by nature, by the Name. The name first goes out rising preparation so that the work can be accomplished by nature of nanhaga (Divine guidance) of creation. Know that the final thing in preparing for a thing to go out from potential to actual is, much learning . There is no learning without the letters. The learning of man is the work of Elokim (God). The completion of cavana (Divine intentions) is in the form of the letters. So to in the work of the Divine name. There is no way out side that of nature. So work is like the letters. They support it according to what the man has done.
SO WOULD YOU SEE IT AS DIVINE PROVIDENCE
NO ONE GOOD LIKES DEATH AND DESTRUCTION
IN THIS CASE IT IS BETTER THAN
THIS IS NOT A PROPHETIC PREDICTION
Manifestation of the event happens through

Iran should back
Iran earthquake injures hundreds – 31 July 2010
American Drones crashed into the Bushehr reactor and Iranian UAV expert, Program Chief assassinated.
On Aug. 1, An American warship cruising in the Persian Gulf lofted three unmanned aircraft and crashed them deliberately on the dome atop the Iranian nuclear reactor in Bushehr.
The townspeople (app. 250,000) panicked in the belief that an Israeli or American attack on Iran’s nuclear installations had begun. They speculated that the US retaliated for a supposed Iranian submarine assault on the Japanese M Star supertanker in the Straits of Hormuz four days earlier, on Wednesday, July 28. If the Iranian sub attack was true, was it Tehran’s reply to statements by US officials, according to which the military option against the Islamic Republic was back on the Pentagon’s table?
This surmise led to the next guess that the Americans drones bombed Bushehr both as a military exercise and as Washington’s answer to the latest round of threats from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other top Iranian officials. They have threatened to bring the United States to its knees if their nuclear sites are attacked, wipe Israel off the map and set the Middle East on fire, especially Tel Aviv.
And where did the reported murder in another part of Iran of Reza Baruni, father of Iran’s military UAV program, fit into the rising climate of confrontation?
The drone attack on Bushehr was real
That same day, close to midnight, three unmanned aerial vehicles did indeed crash into the Bushehr reactor dome leaving at least five staff members confirmed dead. Speculation was rife in the panic-stricken population – that the huge bang was either the opening shot of an American invasion of Iran, or that a series of well-spaced US-Israeli operations was underway for knocking out installations in other parts of the country.
Some locals claimed they had received information about widely-spread attacks on the phone from relatives in Arak, the site of a new heavy water plant in the Markazi province of western Iran, and in Darkovin, the southern Ahwaz province, where secret nuclear facilities are under construction and where the UAV pioneer Buruni had just been killed.
To calm the populace, Bushehr’s city leaders asked Tehran for some straight answers. They elicited a Ministry of Defense communiqué which confirmed that a single drone had indeed crashed into the nuclear reactor dome, but insisted it was launched by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards to test the alertness of the air defense personnel guarding it and the effectiveness of its anti-air radar system.
According to DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s Iranian and intelligence sources, Tehran could not dismiss the incident out of hand after three mighty explosions racked the town. So the deputy district governor for security affairs, Mohammad Hossein Shenidi, who is responsible for safeguarding Bushehr and its reactors against air or missile attacks, pitched in with a minimized version:
A single drone had indeed been fired, he admitted, but it carried no explosives because its only purpose was to simulate a loud bang to check the level of local alertness. DEBKA

The sages say whoever fulfills the Torah in poverty in the end will fulfill the Torah in riches, and this is love in the end. And anybody who doesn’t fulfill the Torah in riches will in the end fulfill the Torah in poverty.
The Rabbis of the Mishnah have stated (Avot 3:9), “Anybody who puts his fear of God before his wisdom, his wisdom stays with him, anybody who puts his wisdom before his fear of sin, his wisdom does not stay with him.” Anybody who puts his wisdom before his fear of God what is it similar to? To someone who is given the inner keys but is not given the outer keys. How will he enter?
Without the Torah there is no fear of God, as it says (Avot 2:5) “There is no ignoramus that fears sin.” Just like there is no Torah without fear there is no fear without the Torah. (ov: And you won’t have any lacking in your house) (other version: in your Mishnah). There won’t be any lacking in your soul, and there won’t be any lacking in your good deeds. There is nobody who is lacking or poor except for one who is lacking in Torah or good deeds as the Rabbis of the Mishnah have stated “there is no pauper except one lacking in Torah and good deeds.” The body is the handywork of man’s hands. There is no one lacking more than the one whose deeds aren’t the deeds of The God. As it is written, “If God didn’t build the house then for waste they build it” (Psalms 127:1). This is what caused the destruction of the holy Temple because it wasn’t the work of God himself. (From Tikuny Zohar)
Holiness is connected to its root (GOD)
Our root, namely the Creator, wants only to bestow, as it is written, “His desire to do good to the creatures,” so Holiness is only to bestow upon the Creator.
Sitra Achra (the other side), aims only to receive for herself
When one annuls their will to receive before God, and does not want to receive, but only to give to the root, like the root, which is a will to bestow
Then Ani (I in Hebrew), becomes Ain (naught-nullified to God).
They became separated from the God’s Holiness, called “the will to bestow,”. There is no longer the matter of equivalence of form with God
They do not want to make of the Ani (I), called “ the will to receive,” Ain (naught), which is the annulment of the will to receive.
This is the meaning of what our sages said, “Anyone who is proud, the Creator says, ‘He and I cannot dwell in the same abode,’” as he makes two authorities, God and himself. However, when one one annuls oneself before GOD, meaning that one’s sole intention is only to bestow, you find only one authority here – the authority of the Creator. Then, all that one receives in the world is only to bestow upon the Creator.
The primary separator from cleaving with the Creator is the will to receive. Evil comes; and asks, “Why do you want to work for the Creator?”
“What means you by this service?”
The will to receive for itself has no redemption, selfishness is plain no good
The will to receive for itself must always remain kept in check, since acting upon the will to receive is actual death. The reason is that creation is for GOD’S glory
The essence of creation is to reveal to all that the purpose of creation is to do good to His creatures. This is specifically when one says that he was born to honor the Creator.
One must always examine oneself, meaning if the Creator receives contentment in every act that you perform, because they want equivalence of form. This is called “All your actions will be for the Creator,” meaning one wants the Creator to enjoy whatever one does, as it is written, “to bring contentment to your Maker.”
One cannot break loose from the will to receive, he is therefore in perpetual ascents and descents. But one awaits the Creator, to be rewarded with the Creator opening his eyes, and to have the power to overcome and work only to benefit the Creator. It is as it is written, “One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after.” That, meaning the Holy Shechina (Divinity). And one asks (Psalms 27:4), “that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.”
The house of the Lord is the Holy Shechina (The Divine Presence).
One sees that there is no one in the world who can save him from the state he is in but the Creator alone.
Then one is awarded private personal Divine Providence. One then sees that even without one’s prayer the Creator still does everything.
When one feels that he should ask of the Creator to save him from death, meaning from the state of, “The evil in their life are called dead,” the contact between the person and the Creator is close contact. For this reason, the righteous, need the Creator’s help; otherwise he is lost. This is what the righteous crave for a place to have close contact with the Creator.
These righteous are very happy, is joyous to now have a place come into close contact with the Creator. This is because one cannot come to the King’s Palace but for some purpose.
This is the meaning of, “And ye shall take you.” It specifies you. This is because everything is in the hands of God except the fear of God. In other words, the Creator can give abundance of Light because this is what He has. But the darkness, the place of dearth, this is not in His domain.
YOU CAN BE SO FULL OF YOURSELF, THAT YOU HAVE NO PLACE, NO NEED FOR GOD, YOU THINK, GOD JUST DOES NOT EVEN ENTER THEIR THOUGHTS
This is why the body comes and asks, “What means you by this service?” You must assume the way of the Kingdom of Heaven
The Creator gives one some luminescence from Above, the will to receive surrenders and annulled like a candle before a torch. Then it is no labor at all..
As you that love GOD, hate evil.
Which means that the love of God extends only the extent that one has hatred for evil, meaning that one sees how the will to receive obstructs one from achieving the completeness of the goal, to that extent one needs to be imparted the love of God.
One cannot be granted the love of God. If he feels he has no need for it, as he already has complete satisfaction in his level
The will to receive, bring its questions to man. Trying to obstruct him in the work of keeping Torah and Mitzvot (God’s commandments).
The obstructions of the will to receive in the work come to him from Above. One is given the force to discover the will to receive from Above because there is room for work precisely when the will to receive awakens.
Then one has close contact with the Creator, to help one turn the will to receive to be in order to bestow. Draw him near by Dvekut (Adhesion), called “equivalence of form,” discerned as the annulment of the will to receive is changed to bestow.
Know the Creator createdus with this nature of wanting to receive delight and pleasure, it therefore is not easy to change the nature in which the Creator has created.
Even if for this purpose it was created.
One must wage war on it, so to convert it to a will to bestow. This is how the battle against selfishness is won, and then one has made space for God in their world.
One must know that during the work, when the will to receive comes to a person with its arguments.
Advance only by actions, and not by arguments. Through persistence, Holiness becomes your nature.
One must especially try to have a strong desire to obtain the will to bestow and overcome the will to receive.
Sometimes one receives a descent in their aspirations towards Holiness. This descent can be a cessation of a minute, an hour, a day, or a month. Afterwards, one resumes the work of overcoming the will to receive, and the attempts to achieve the will to bestow one has built. A strong desire for Holiness means that the cessation does not take him a long time and he is immediately reawakened to the Holy work.
In the holy work, which is to bring the vessels of receiving into Kedusha (Holiness), we have a strong hammer, meaning words of Torah that give us good counsels. However it must not be with long intermissions in-between. And then one can break the rock in a short time.
The effort to make contact with the Creator the effort must be in the form of adornment. Adornment means something that is important to a person. One cannot work gladly if the labor is not important, meaning that one has joy at having contact with the Creator.
Know, the Divine Lights are poured from Above downward, the Lights come in vessels of reception..
The Lights come from below upward. This means the Lights come in vessels of bestowal. The lights –sparks rise up by entering vessels which one has. These are vessels of personality traits which have him do “good things”.
Sometimes one despises the work of Heaven. For them it is a burden . They are in a time of darkness, when one sees that no one can raise him to a higher state of consciousness but the Creator. Then he takes upon himself the Kingdom of Heaven above reason.
One should be glad that now he has something to give to the Creator, and the Creator enjoys giving to him.
When one feels a taste of Holiness in the work. He does not have to work with the will to receive to agree to take upon himself the Kingdom of Heaven above reason, He wants to give to God.
When one does overcome oneself, then they will say that this work is pleasant. When he arrives at the level of faith above reason, and he accepts this work becomes his way to higher consciousness. This is called “A joy.”

UPDATED JULY 28, 2014
The site of Ezekiel’s tomb in Iraq
For centuries Jews, Christians and Muslims came to Al-Kifl, a small town south of Baghdad, to visit the tomb of the Prophet Ezekiel and pray.
The distinctive Jewish character of the Al-Kifl shrine, namely the Hebrew inscriptions and the Torah Ark, never bothered the gentile worshipers. In the 14th century a minaret was built next to the shrine, but the interior design remained Jewish. The vast majority of Iraq’s Jewish community left some 60 years ago, but Shi’ites took good care of the holy site.
Recently “Ur,” a local Iraqi news agency, reported that a huge mosque will be built on top of the grave by Iraq’s Antiquities and Heritage Authority, while Hebrew inscriptions and ornaments are being removed from the site, all as part of renovations.
Prof. Shmuel Moreh of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, winner of the 1999 Israel Prize in Middle Eastern studies and chairman of the Association of Jewish Academics from Iraq, speaking to The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday, confirmed the report.
“I first heard the news of tomb desecration from a friend of mine who is a German scholar. After visiting the site he called me and said that some Hebrew inscriptions on the grave were covered by plaster and that a mosque is planned to be built on top of the tomb. He told me that he found the changes at the tomb disturbing and warned me that I’d better act quickly, before any irreversible damage will be inflicted,” Moreh said.
He asked friends to check out the developments at the site. The most recent to visit the shrine said that some of the inscriptions are now hidden by a layer of plaster.
Iraqi press reports claim that the building must be destroyed because of its poor condition. However, Alfassa believes that Iraq’s Antiquities and Heritage Authority “has been pressured by Islamists to historically cleanse all evidence of a Jewish connection to Iraq – a land where Jews had lived for over a thousand years before the advent of Islam.”
According to the Baghdad-born Moreh, many of the Muslims who visit the tomb today are unaware Ezekiel was a Jew.
Iraq, the biblical Aram Naharaim, is rich in Jewish religious sites. Not only Ezekiel is buried there, but also Ezra, Daniel, Nehemiah, Nahum and Jonah
“Let’s hope that the Jewish sites will be spared, but someone must intervene before it’s too late,” Moreh warned.
This is all part of a bigger Problem
The Oslo Accords put Joseph’s grave under Israeli jurisdiction, but on Oct. 7, 2000, then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak ordered a unilateral retreat, based on a Palestinian agreement to protect the site. Israel thought they were doing this for the sake of peace.
Within hours, smoke was seen billowing from the tomb as a crowd burned Jewish prayer books and other articles. With pickaxes and hammers they began to tear apart the stone building. Two days later the dome of the tomb had been painted green and bulldozers were clearing the area.
Palestinians desecrate Burial site for Biblical patriarch Joseph.
Destroyed tomb of Biblical patriarch Joseph.
Minister Natan Sharansky wants the foreign ministry to publicize photos of the desecrated site, which is in the Palestinian Authority-controlled town of Nablus, the biblical Shechem.
“If we would have razed the gravesite of one of the founders of Islam, billions of Muslims would have taken to the streets,” Sharansky said. “It’s inconceivable that the world should not know about this travesty.”
In our parsha it is written “And I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, by the name of א”ל שד”י, but by my name יהו”ה I was not known to them.” (Exudus 3:6)
What is it with this name יהו”ה ?, We will try to understand a little bit as this involves the infinate wisdom of the God.
Its written “forever יהו”ה your word stands in Heaven”. Every moment GOD judges in everything its life force. What power it needs always. What barrier will not be transcended is determined by שד”י, changes are by יהו”ה.1
Malchut is a garment to Teferet, as אדנ”י is a garment of יהו”ה.2 There needs to be the 4 letters of יהו”ה in Teferet and the 4 letters of אדנ”י is in Malchut so to make tikun in proper order. יהו”ה is only revealed by אדנ”י .3
Rabbi Avraham Abulafia in Safer cheshek teaches that there is no doubt that when one returns to intellect and cleaves in life force according to the force of olam haba, which will be according to his comprehension. By this GOD shall arrouse you upon the form of זכירה (memory) and on Chuchmah till that you lack no power, G-d willing. Every time you want to remember יהו”ה with all its vowels or Holy Names, the 12 letter name from 3 names of 4 letters or 3 יהו”ה or its 12 permutations.4
Know the Name from permeating it in all 22 letters as in Safer Yetzera of Avraham Avinu, if you don’t error with letters or nikudot. The prophet Jeremiyah worked Safer Yetzera alone. He was told (By GOD) to find a friend to learn Safer Yetzera with so that they could permeate the alp-bet together, thus fulfilling as its written “ speaking in the fear of יהו”ה a man to his friend. So they could acomplish anything.5 יהו”ה gives Nashamot (souls) to the letters. Forever the Nashama of the letters is the Name. The letters of יהו”ה are the Nashama of man.6
All Holiness of “Kadosh Kadoshim” is from “mazel”. Everything derives from Mazel. The letters יהו”ה come out of Atik from the beard and connect to this Mazel. It supports other letters in Z’a.7
It’s tought in Shoshon Sodot that Aretz Yisrael is not under the supernal princes (angels) above but יהו“ה. It is nourished from Keter elyon (source of Divine will and delight) by the middle piller. Aretz Yisrael recieves flow of ברכה (blessing) from עליונה ארץ (the supernal land).8
There is one חיה (angel) in the rekia called Yisrael. Yisrael are born from the ”house of GOD”. Here they cleave in ” the portion of יהוה is His people”. So they may inherit what is fit for them of Torah and mitzvot from treasury of GOD this is their crown. This treasury is from the 32 paths Chuchmah. 9
The 100 blessings are Light floating on בשר (flesh) with 2 צירי (Vowel of Binna). From this the Yesod of Imma descends to Zu”n. Then He is called יהו”ה אלהי”ם.10 Those who walk in the ways of “avoda zara” (strange worship) the way of GOD being strange to them. Then the way of GOD will not rest in their hearts.11
It is stated in the Zohar concerning the Mashiach ” the nations shall seek him, as within him is the secret of the Divine name.” The Metsudat David explains that there will be given power from Atik Yomim , The Ancient of days, to Messiach to rule over the nations, and they will serve him, and none will transgress. He will be victorious.

ISIS Destroys Another Holy Site After Tomb
of Jonah the Biblical Prophet and Tomb of
Seth son of Noah
Jihadists destroyed the Nabi Shiyt (Prophet Seth) shrine in Mosul, the de facto Iraqi capital of the “caliphate” proclaimed last month by Islamic State (IS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
“IS militants stopped people from coming close, set explosives in and around the shrine and then detonated them as a crowd looked on,” one resident who witnessed the demolition told AFP.
Seth is revered in Christianity, Islam and Judaism as the third son of Adam and Eve.
Muslims know the tomb as the shrine of Younis, whereas Christians refer to it as the tomb of Jonas.
Islamic State (IS) has also destroyed the tomb of Jonah is renowned for having been swallowed by a fish or a whale in the Bible , with a similar story being present in the Koran. The site upon which the mosque had been built dated back to the eighth century BC.
Even Moqtada Sadr thinks these guys are crazy. Moqtada Sadr, a Shiite cleric whose followers have taken up arms to protect endangered holy sites, also condemned the demolition of the Nabi Yunus shrine.

- “Give strength to God; his majesty is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.”
How can one give strength to God ?
Part of the Answer :
The name of God in the verse is אלהי”ם (Eloheem)
The “Cyot” (a type of angel) of the Angel Mattatro”n are the Lion which is power of kindness- Michia”l, Ox is discipline- Gavrial, the Eagle is rulership-Rafial, face of man is Balance and אוריא”ל . They are the 4 princes of the angels. Many jobs are given to angels according to the order of their source (Whether they are angels of kindness- or discipline ect… , thus will be their Job) for the need of guarding the time.( there are set more favorable times for the work of each angel) There for there is a change in the order of the camps (of angels) according to the times. Between the 10 classes of angels and their princes. Each day they are being changed and renewed all the time. Angels of Matto”t are penimi (internal energy). Angels of Sande”l are angels of the rekia (firmament) and כוכבים (stars), they are memunim (supernal supervisors) of הגשמיות (physicality). According to the nikudot (vowels) of the הויה (explicit name of God) the angels receive their specific sparks that are needed for their Nashamot (souls) (we “give strength to Eloheem”, to the angels, by יהו”ה with unique nikud) According to their specific aspect. As explained in Safer Brit Manuchah. 124
The aspect of God called Eloheem is always in fluctuation, Through this name of God the Astrological influence is manifest. It is effected by thoughts speech and actions below.

The elevation revelation to the soul in rising sparks and the supernal light illuminating each accordingly so allowing one to rise to the supernal palaces above, palace by palace as there descends light by way of the sefirot. Illuminating the palace “lavanot Ha Safir”, each person receiving light according to their merit. Which is also according to each person’s “yichus”(relationship). Rabbi Moshe Cordevero in Sher Kuma explains “yichus” as one’s personal relationship to the sefirot. There are two levels of yichus. That which is revealed, this is the advice of the king. The second aspect is his providence. This is revealed to each according to his comprehension. Yichus is closeness to divine attributes as one’s own or distance heaven forbid. The seal of “yichus” is teferet which is balance upon bina divine understanding and chuchma divine creativity inspiration. As the “yichus” to physical desires are replaced with spiritual desires. The “yichus” to physicality disappears from
our eyes as “yichus” to spiritual attributes of malchut, ones actions, with chuchmah and bina consume us. The illumination of “yichus” of a sadeek is from above. He rules over the forms that are below his point of “yichus” through the name elokim, “hvyh” rules in elokim changing providence. One who achieves the understanding that God is one, and there is no other. He can force corporeality upon the angels, and send them to do his will. Providence “hagana” is directed through “sachel Nifradim” (angels) and through these are directed spiritual powers that are divine will which are made of thought involved in creation of the world (such as Divine names ). All things of (general) “Nahagot” are called Atzilut. It is the Way of God Blessed is his name and his desire to Guide his worlds through man. So that God will be known and recognized by his works. God blessed is his name makes signs so that man will know from them knowledge of God, and believe in emunah. According to the Divine names worked is his work. All this is called Olam Atzilut (world of emination) . All Changes are not in God, but are according to the recieving vessel. To recieve flow is רצון (will), and the general aspect of all vessels.1
God eminates 10 sefirot. He is always united in them.2 The vessels are arranged according to the structure that is needed in the world for proper “nanhaga”. “Nanhagot” are divided and called according to divine names in the 10 sefirot of Bria, Yetzera and Asiyah . In analogy this is called the world that (knowledge of) shatters the Ears. 3 There are 3 vessels to every sefira, and to each parzuf. These coorespond to the Nefesh Ruach and Nashama.4 It is possible to change ר צ ו ן (will) to another different ר צ ו ן . Or one flow for a new better flow as is needed of the sefirot, so that works can be accomplished. The Ayn-Sof dresses in the sefirot. This is the Kavana(intent) of Tefilla. God shines his glory in the sefirot guiding personal ability, providence, livelihood, healing, atonement. All is from Him.5 One must זקף (straighten up by raising) from צער (problems,discomfort). The main purpose of Tefila is to fix צער above caused by pain of the person below.6 Rav Nachunya ben Hakana teaches to make all your “tivot” (strong desires) to the כ ב ו ד (honor) of God for the sake of the tikun of your Nefesh. Cleave in the כ ב ו ד of God, this is the Shechinah. Give כ ב ו ד to God give to Him thanks and remembrance. These then go out to the אויר (air) of the world. To gain aditional “Kidusha”, and possess a supernal Nashama this is enjoined into the hands of man. Words of Chuchmah make tikun to the hands, which is where energy flows.He may contemplate what he wants. The hidden knowledge that was given only to Yisrael is by power of knowledge of the holy names. Becouse of the (spiritual) places where they call out divine names and are exacting in their learning and do “yichud below”, there is also occupation with א ו ר י י ת א (torah) above.
All גזיוו (joining) below is according to the יחוד (unification) above. Make things such below so that there will be arroused the same above.7 The main greatness of the Divine Name is through wealth. All this is decided by the כסא (thrown) and משפט (judgment). Dont take benefit of a mitzvah before it is complete (dont create a incomplete mitzvah or lacking compared to what you are capable of). This is as if a Cohen were to eat from a sacrifice before he had completed his required Divine service with it. Do the mitzvot in a way of כבוד (honor) due to the Holy king. Dont enter into doing the Mitzvot in a light headed way. By comprehension of the mitzvot one comes to be careful with their fulfillment as then they understand that the mitzvot involve Holiness. Then they will do them with all their power, cherishing and guarding their kidusha. But if one enters to fulfill mitzvot with arrogance or not in a serious way they will not comprehend in truth “hashgacha” (divine providence), or see the way of the Mitzvot.8 By getting rid of arrogance comes “ruach haKodesh”.9 אשר קדישנו means being invited to Holiness in a individual way as קדושין (marriage). One needs to be sanctified to their creator, as He Himself is Holy. One must prepare to be summoned to sanctify themselves in every moment so there will be received their prayer and Torah. They must be Holy. Sanctified by mitzvot. (commandments) 10
Its written in Safer HaKana concerning the verse “You will be holy for I am Holy” that God will (then) send to you “ruach Kidusha” (His Holy spirit) and Binna.11 A man of Holiness is one of Chuchmah.12 All who engage in Torah “liSmo” (for its own sake) merit many things. They receive “Mishpot” that is made for them to show them and to teach them things. This is by personal providence thet comes down to guide them. All who hear about these things that happen to him by Divine providence themselves learn things. This all happens if one’s Torah is “lismo”. Torah ל ש מ ה is to ה “א . Which is Leah. (it reveals Divine intuition)13 One who learns Torah “lo lismo” (not for its own sake) its like they have not learned at all. When its said one who learns “lo lismo” will come to lismo. This is meant only in the beggining of learning and only after a short period. Until that there enters into his heart a burning desire for the Torah. This will bring him to learn “limo”. But if one continues learning regularly “lo lismo” he will be consumed in a fire which cannot be extinguished. All his days are in “Avarah” (transgression).14 Mitzvot done lo lismo (for their own sake) blemish in the markavah elyonah (upper chariot), by the lack in these mitzvot.15 All “nahagot” changes according to the actions of man. If he sins “din” (judgment) becomes dominant. If he returns to his God א ל ה י “ ו then there becomes dominant chesed and Rachamim. All is as weighed as on a scale. By tefilla and mitzvot there is caused change to the vessels. Which are the sefirot, thereby there is changed providence.16 All who sin are given over to be ruled by the “sitra achra” (other side), except those who love God and these are punished. Guidance of the sefirot is not enough when there is not revealed י ח ד ך (unification) of God, as then only darkness prevails. All the powers and levels are not able to give limit to the תהום (depth) of “apiryon” created by the sins of Yisrael. As the תהום is the depth of darkness. Becouse of this Yisrael needs shine light from on high.Only the “yichud” (unification) of God himself places a limit, and raises up all levels. So raise your eyes to the mountains on high.17
The main knowledge is knowledge of the work of God (Divine providence). The main thing is revelation of God within the worlds that He creates, or there is “hester panim” (concielment from his Divine providence). During exile all א ו ת (wonders) are hidden so the “other side” does not raise up complaints against Yisrael. God hides his face so that the wicked will not be destroyed, and the world can exist. The unity of God is hidden from the wicked becouse of their garments of “tuma”. (spiritual impurities)18 One must be careful not to arrouse “ruach tuma” by drawing the left side down from above.19
All yisrael are children of kings, But this is not reached until they return to Aretz Yisrael. As mentioned earlier the source of flow is from the “even stiyah” so in the land of Yisrael they realize their purpose. The supernal angels rise and are nourished and rise by the upper unification which is “chitzon” (external) all creation continually needs to receive this flow. The “nashamot” and Zu”n of man comes from the lower unification which is called “penimi” (internal) of teferet and malchut. According to the work of men this unification’s power rises or decends. From here one is punished or rewarded. While the unification nourishing angels is from Chuchmah of Abba and Bina of Imma, But both need this unification of Chuchmah and Bina to sustain them, so the soul of man is prepared to receive the “bracha” (blessing) from Angels.20 We need to labor in growth, teshuva and good deeds till that there returns the light of abba (Chuchma) into Z’a (ruach) fixing also the parzufim of Leah and Rachel. Illness comes from inequity, becouse of this there goes away light of Abba. From damage in Leah come illness of a hidden nature.
