The Holy Ar”i teaches that the Book of Exodus corresponds to the yud itself and Abba. The Book of Leviticus corresponds to the first hay and Ima. The Book of Numbers corresponds to the vav. .The Book of Deuteronomy, corresponds to the final hei and Nukvah The Torah is our nations greatest treasure, for the truth it embodies and it stands as a witness to the supernatural experience all the Hebrews shared at Mount Sinai.
Of the Torah of the world of Beriyah it says “To me are the children of Yisrael servants” (Lev. 25:55). And from the side of Torah of Atzilut it says “Children are you to Hashem” (Deut. 14:)
We have a limited amount of years on this earth, and we have a lot of work to do. We just don’t have enough years to learn the right way of life through trial and error. By the time one learns the way of life, it is already time to leave. Therefore, God gave us the Torah, Don’t use up your years in trial and error.

At this assembly the majority of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah (sages) in 1937 voted in favor of a Jewish State and said that relinquishment of the Holy Land given to the Jewish people b, MESSIAH, which was given to us by the Holy One according to its boundaries i, ZIONISM
In 1937 in Marienbad the greatest sages of the generation met at the Third Kenessiah of Agudas Yisroel. At this assembly the majority of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah (sages) in 1937 voted in favor of a Jewish State and said that relinquishment of the Holy Land given to the Jewish people by God has no validity. They came to the conclusion that each and every compromise made regarding the Holy Land, which was given to us by the Holy One according to its boundaries is null and void.
The Great Assembly stated that it is unequivocally forbidden to surrender even the tiniest particle of land within the boundaries of the Holy Land. It is astonishing that people do not publicize and proclaim this ruling in the greatest possible way.
The fact that there are those who wish to conceal this are only doing evil. This ruling is like every other Jewish law, for “the word of G-d will certainly endure.”
It is the law and there should be no question concerning it.
The Lebovicher Rebbe, May his soul help us above Said concerning this ruling:
“May it be G-d’s Will that everyone will look at the Code of Jewish Law, chapter 329, and they will see that the law is clear: it is forbidden to cede even a small piece of the Land of Israel.
We must continue spreading word of this legal ruling until all the Jews know of this ruling.” Those who want to give the land of Israel away to its enemies we must protest against their actions, as they are not in accordance with the Torah.
The sages of this Generation must be true to their lineage and uphold this ruling against those who do not know.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe said about this ruling that for the sages of the generation not to defend the land of Israel against those Who do not follow the Torah and want to give the land away to our enemies that their
“Silence is a sin”.
” The foundation of the Jewish peoples right to the Holy Land is based on the Torah and the prophets…A Jewish State not based on the principles of Torah is a denial of Jewish origin, is opposed to the identity and to the true stature of our people, and undermines the basis of existence of our people…Any relinquishment of the Holy Land given to the Jewish people by G-d has no validity” (HaPardes 11:6)
The sages of the1937 assembly in Marienbad concluded that it was permissible for us to accept the partition plan which implied the renunciation of half of Eretz Israel. Although the majority voted in favor of partition, they did it because if we did not accept the plan. Israel would have gotten nothing.
The situation today is not the same.
Today we have the whole land and giving away any part of the land falls under the prohibition according to the Ramban of
“We are not allowed to leave the land in our enemies’ hands.“
In any case, at that meeting in 1937, ah the majority voted in favor of the partition plan, the resolution contained a clear declaration about the inalienable rights of the Jewish people to the entire land.
It is about time good religious people should complain to the Rabbis and demand that they do more to protect our Holy land from the hands of non religious people, who have abandoned the Torah and our history in the altar of modernity and hedonism. It should not be left to them to determine what will be with the Holy land and the Jew’s.
Besides all of this there are a few small groups like the Neturei Karta that think that because God made the Jews take two oaths and the world take one. The Jews swore “Not to ascend to the Holy Land as a group using force, not to rebel against the governments of countries in which we live,” and “Not to push the end away with our sins “.
The State of Israel is a sin the small groups like the Neturei Karta say that “we came back in force and rebelled against the nations.”
But in truth there was no rebellion against the nations. We were granted permission by Britain, League of Nations and the United Nations to recreate our homeland in the Land of Israel. Gemara in Ketubot speaks of “The Nations”, the UN is and was the greatest representation of the world community. It is irrelevant that there were nations that were against giving the Land of Israel to the Jews the majority voted for it and the WORLD BODY GAVE THE JEWS THE LAND.
Isreal only fought for independence because the Arab League did not wish to comply with the decision of the world body, the UN, but the Arab League decided to launch a full scale invasion. The Arab League at that time proudly stated that they would commit a massacre on the scale of the Mongol massacres. If the Jews in Israel had not fought there would have been a massacre of the 600,000 Jews living in The land of Israel. So at that point, it becomes a obligation to fight and save one’s own life.
Besides all this the Ramban who writes “Behold we were commanded the conquest of the land of Israel in ever generation when ever possible” (Supplement to the Rambam, Sefer HaMitzvot, positive commandment #4). The Ramban is very clear in his language. “We are commanded to posses the land that the almighty God gave to our forefathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and not to leave it in the hands of other nations or in desolation, as it says, ‘posses the land and live in it…Do not be confused and say that this mitzvah is the mitzvah to make war against the seven nations…this is not the case. We are commanded to kill those nations if they fight us, if they want to make peace with us we may do so and leave them in certain well known circumstances; but we may never leave the land in their hands nor in the hand of other nations in any generation.”
It is very clear that the Ramban did not hold of the “shvuot” (oath) to be a legal matter at all.
Even the Rambam writes: “it is prohibited to leave the Land of Israel and go to ‘chutz la’aretz’ at any time ” (Hilchot Melachim, Chapter 5, halacha 9) The Rambam writes also: “A person should dwell in Eretz Yisrael, even in a city whose population is mostly non-Jewish, and not live in “chutz la’aretz”, even in a city which is mostly Jewish”.
Second the first two oaths might be contingent on the third, that the nations not treat us harshly, which they did, then we can rebel and go up to the land.
Their second point is that they think that the redemption can not come about through non-believers, furthermore Netueri Karta believes that man can not play a role in bringing the Redemption and must completely rely on the Almighty to do all the work.
This cannot be so as in the time of Ezra and Nechemya, the vast majority who returned with them were unobservant, but immoral as well, as it says in Kiddushin 69-70, they were bastards, foundlings and committed sexual misconducts like the people of Sodom and Amora. And yet they were the tools, which God used to bring about that Redemption at that time. Certainly, the secular Jews who started returning in the late 1800s, and who remained the main builders of the land until the State was re-declared in 1948, could not have been much worse.
The Mashiach does not come about through the most pleasant means or obvious ways. Just look at the father of Mashiach, David Hamelech – King David. When we look at Davids ancestry. On his fathers side their were illicit relations between Yehuda and Tamar. But concerning this the sages say “God was busy creating the light of the King Mashiach.” (Bareshit Rabba 85:1)
. Davids grandmother Ruth came from the Nation of Moav. It was the nation of Moav that seduced the men of Israel to sin in the desert bringing a great plague upon them. Also, Moav’s founding father was a illegitimate child as he was from the illicit relations between Lot and his Daughter Habichira.
The Tur (Orach Chaim 428) figured out which day of the week each Yom Tov will fall. א, the first day of Pesach is the same day as ת Tisha B’av. ב, the second day of Pesach is the same as ש, Shavuos. ג the third day of Pesach is the same as ר, Rosh Hashanah.ד, the fourth day of Pesach is the same as ק, Kria Hatorah (Simchas Torah). ה, the fifth day of Pesach is the same as צ, Tzom (Yom Kippur). ו the sixth day of Pesach is the same as פ, Purim. The Zionists added: ז, the seventh day of Pesach, is the same day as ע, Yom Atzmaut.
IT IS OBVIOUS THE REDEMPTION COMES TO US IN A VERY UNUSUAL WAY
It also should be said after the Holocaust where were the refugees supposed to go? No country would accept them. Do you seriously think God is angry that these broken people who took the remnants of their torn lives and decided to start over again and rebuild in Israel?
In Halakhic matters if one studied and came to a conclusion that is in opposition to that which was decided in the Sanhedrin, he is not liable to punishment except if one instructed others to act in accordance with his minority opinion. (Sanhedrin 86b)
One who instructed others to act in opposition to the decision of the Sanhedrin is considered a “rebellious elder” and is liable for punishment, in order that there not be discord and strife within Israel.
Akavia ben Mahalalel differed with the Sages he was told that if he would rescind his differing opinions, he could be Chief Justice on the Rabbinical Court. He said that he would rather be called a fool and not become an evil person [agreeing with what he believed was not true]. He persisted in his opinions, and only when he was on his deathbed did he instruct his son to accept the opinion of the Sages (Eduyot 5). From this we see that he was not forbidden from reaching his independent conclusions, for if so, he would have said that he would rather be called a fool and not act evilly by accepting forbidden conclusions! In fact, only instructing others to act according to his conclusion would be forbidden, as the Talmud says, “Why was Akavia ben Mahalalel not treated as a rebellious elder? – Because he did not instruct others.” Despite all this, he was still considered greater than all of Israel in wisdom and fear of sin (Brachot 19a)
Change is not merely a factual occurrence, but is rather an expression of the conscious initiative of man. From this point of view, Religious Zionists adapted this awareness, and understood that it was this that separated between themselves and the hareidi sector. Federbush, for instance, in his work “The Perfection of Judaism,” contrasts between hareidi Judaism and Religious Zionism exactly in this point. The hareidim do not understand that the ghetto walls have collapsed, and they feel that it is possible to perpetuate the framework of the old conceptions. “Whoever says that Judaism is only a religion, or only religious rituals, is as if saying that Judaism is not intrinsically connected with the existence of the Nation of Israel… the borders of the Jewish religion are those of the Jewish nation.” the hareidim’s clinging to their understanding of the Nation of Israel as merely a religious denomination, shaped and defined only by the Torah. This understanding led the way to the claim, promoted by certain schools of hareidi thought, that whoever is not observant of the Torah and its commandments is not considered a Jew, even if he was born as such. In stark contrast to this, Religious Zionism adopted the approach that the Nation of Israel is an ethnic entity; in the words of Federbush, “just as ‘total Judaism’ is inconceivable without its religious aspect, so too it is unimaginable without its national facet.” Federbush further wrote, “Whoever says that Judaism is only a religion, or only religious rituals, is as if saying that Judaism is not intrinsically connected with the existence of the Nation of Israel… the borders of the Jewish religion are those of the Jewish nation.”
Unlike hareidi Judaism religious Zionist say that, “He to whom elementary human knowledge and education is foreign, can neither be learned in knowledge of Judaism.” Torah is likened to a treasure house or a well, from which every generation extracts according to its strength and ability. The infinite riches of Judaism include more than just laws and rigid guidelines; they comprise outlooks, conceptions, and ideas that guide man in all that he does and thinks. Torah is likened to a treasure house or a well, from which every generation extracts according to its strength and ability. The infinite riches of Judaism include more than just laws and rigid guidelines; they comprise outlooks, conceptions, and ideas that guide man in all that he does and thinks. There is no room for other value systems outside of the religious system. Every value must be anchored in one way or another in the Torah.
Redemption has always been perceived in Religious Zionism as contingent upon human activism.

UPDATED July 4th 2016
In the Biblical calendar system, a thirteenth month is added in 7 out of every 19 years in order to align the lunar cycle with the solar cycle. Here, the thirteenth lunar month makes the twelve original solar ones into an system that coexists with its solar “mate”.
Once every 28 years, the sun returns to the same place, same time of day and same day of the week as at the moment of its creation. Every twenty-eight years unique occasion arises: the moment at which the sun returns to the spot it occupied in the heavens at the moment of its creation, on the Fourth Day (the days were not literal 24 hour periods, obviously as before the 4th “day” there was not yet the Sun in the sky). This confluence of events, a restaging of the heavens as they were at the beginning of time, is not a moment to be overlooked. So the ancient sages bid us to celebrate this re-enactment of the creation of the sun every 28 years. Given that the the sun returns to its original place in the heavens at the precise time and day of its creation, this is an opportunity to see the world, and ourselves, as created again. This means the world becomes a new place with new opportunities. The sun’s return back to its original position that it began from during the first week in creation contains the power of renewal, and therefore, of redemption. Acknowledging the various cycles of the earth bring new awareness for the environment and the whole world.
The next solar celebration marking this event, called Birkat Hahammah (the blessing of the sun), will occur on Wednesday morning, April 8, 2009. At Sunset on April 8, 2009 we begin the first Seder for Passover. Though this is a coincidence, it opens the door for the myriad ways to connect the freedoms offered by the Sun’s energy and the Exodus story.
This celebration will mark the 206th cycle of the sun’s full return to its time and place at creation.
“The sun at its turning point.” In its apparent motion in the ecliptic, the sun has four ‘turning points’ which mark the beginnings of the four respective seasons. These points are generically referred to as the 2 Equinox and 2 solstices. They are: the two equinoctial points when the sun crosses the equator at the beginning of spring and autumn respectively, and ‘turns’ from one side of the equator to the other; and the two solstices, when the sun is at its maximum distance, or declination, from the equator, at one or other side of it. Of summer and winter respectively, and instead of progressively increasing its declination it ‘turns’ to decrease it progressively. Originally, the moment selected for this celebration was the spring equinox. But, you might ask, if the equinox occurs in late March (around March 21), why do we celebrate it in early April? While the answer is a bit complex, the short explanation is that the original annual calculations were based on the Julian calendar which counted the year as having 365.25 days. The true solar year, however, is closer to 365.242199. While that might not seem like a big difference, over a thousand years these minutes add up to a variance of 7.81 days. The Biblical calendar is a solar/lunar calendar which does take into consideration this variance.
Occurrences of The blessing of the sun
Occurrences in the last 120 years:
- Wednesday, April 7, 1897 (5 Nisan 5657)
- Wednesday, April 8, 1953 (23 Nisan 5713)
- Wednesday, April 8, 1981 (4 Nisan 5741)
the blessing of the sun will occur next on
- Wednesday, April 8, 2009 (14 Nisan 5769)
- Wednesday, April 8, 2037 (23 Nisan 5797)
- Wednesday, April 8, 2065 (2 Nisan 5825)
- Wednesday, April 8, 2093 (12 Nisan 5853)
- Wednesday, April 9, 2121 (21 Nisan 5881)
Note: Because the dates for assume a 365.25-day solar year and the Julian calendar also assumes a 365.25-day solar year, the blessing of the sun will always fall on March 25 in the Julian calendar. While the blessing of the sun usually occurs in the Biblical lunar month of Nissan, this is not always the case; it will occur on 29 Adar II (April 10th) in the year 2233. As the Biblical calendar is a solar/lunar calendar.
Only once in 532 years does the cycle begin on the same day of the month as it did at Creation, on 14th.
The author of Meir Enei Chachamim, wrote in his book in 1925 that there are only three times in the 6,000 years of Biblical history, when the blessing of the sun falls on 14 Nisan. These are:
1. Prior to being redeemed from Egypt. the blessing of the sun prior to being redeemed from Egypt was Nisan 14, 2437 and on Nisan 15, 2448 at midnight Israel left Egypt.The day before passover, is the day that we slaughtered the god of the Egyptians (a lamb).
2. Prior to the miracle of Purim. (the blessing of the sun prior to the miracle of Purim was Nisan 14, and Rashi writes that the following year, in Adar, the miracle occurred.) It is worth nothing that Mordechai and Esther were fasting on the 14th, 15th, and 16th of Nisan to prepare for Esther’s plea before King Achashverosh.
3. In the year 5769. It is worth nothing that 5769 is the eighth year, the year after the Sabbatical year.
About Nisan 14, 5769 (April 8, 2009), He writes,
“This will be last time ever and shortly afterwards, the redemption, MUST come.”
The Mekabel Avraham Azulai, the grandson of the Holy Chida HaKodesh, says in his book, that at the latest, in the year of 5769 since the creation of the world, the following two passages will be fulfilled:
Zechariah 13:2 And it shall come to pass in that day, says יהו”ה of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered; and also I will cause their prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
Leviticus 26:6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid; and I will cause evil beasts to cease out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
In other words, the latest date possible that all impurities will cease in the world is at the end of 5769.
For this event God has told the Jews to sanctify the moment and His name with this blessing:
Blessed are You, אלהינו יהו”ה King of the world Who MAKES the work of creation !
THIS IS BEST DONE EARLY IN THE MORNING WITH THE RISING OF THE SUN IN VIEW !
