The Rama (Rav Moshe Isserles of Cracow, 1530-1572) mentions the custom to give charity to the poor on Ereb Rosh Hashanah. This practice is based on the verse in the Book of Nehemia (8:10) in which the prophet instructed the people on Rosh Hashanah to enjoy fine foods and drinks, and to give food packages to the poor so they can enjoy the Yom Tob. Since we cannot give food packages on the Yom Tob, it is proper to give either food or money to the poor on Ereb Rosh Hashanah. This custom is mentioned also by Rav Haim Palachi (Turkey, 1788-1868) in Mo'ed Le'kol Hai (12:2).Rav Haim Vital (1543-1620) had the practice of making "Pidyon Nefesh" – the "ransom of the soul" – on Ereb Rosh Hashanah. He would count 160 coins and put them in a safe location on Ereb Rosh Hashanah, and then declare the "Pidyon" on Ereb Yom Kippur. He would distribute the money to the poor on Ereb Sukkot. It is taught that those who follow this practice are guaranteed to remain alive through the coming year. Hacham Natan Ben-Sanior (contemporary) writes that as this money is given as a "ransom," it may not be counted towards one's Ma'aser Kesafim (tithing of income). We observe this practice in our community, with members donating $100 for the Pidyon, and the money is distributed to the Rabbis of a local Kollel before Sukkot.It is customary also to perform Hatarat Nedarim – the annulment of vows – on Ereb Rosh Hashanah.There is a special Misva for women to bake bread on Ereb Rosh Hashanah and perform "Hafrashat Halla" – separating a portion of dough. The reason for this custom is because Adam and Hava were created on Rosh Hashanah, and on that same day, Hava ate from the forbidden tree and shared the fruit with Adam. Adam is called "Halato Shel Olam" – "the Halla of the world," and thus, as Hava caused Adam's downfall, women correct this mistake by separating Halla on Ereb Rosh Hashanah, the anniversary of that sin.One should try to recite Minha on Ereb Rosh Hashanah – the last prayer of the year – with extra special concentration and intensity. Tradition teaches us that prayers which are recited without Kavana (concentration) do not have "wings" with which to rise to the heavens and achieve their intended purpose. Therefore, all the prayers which we've recited over the course of the year without proper concentration are pending, in a sense, unable to rise to the heavens. These "pending" prayers can reach the heavens either through the prayers of a righteous Sadik who is connected to the individual who recited these prayers, or by the person himself, if he prays again with special feeling and concentration. It is therefore worthwhile when reciting the last prayer of the year to pray with special concentration, which will have the effect of elevating all the prayers which were recited during the year without proper concentration. This point is made by the Ben Ish Hai, in Parashat Nisavim (2).One should make every effort to immerse in the Mikveh on Ereb Rosh Hashanah. The Ben Ish Hai taught that one when immerses in the water the first time, he should have in mind simply that he immerses for the purpose of purity. The second time, he should have in mind that he immerses to repair the damage caused through his anger. The third immersion is to "sweeten" harsh judgments. The fourth and fifth immersions are to divest ourselves of our weekday soul and to receive the special soul of Yom Tob. During the final immersion one should also have in mind "Tahel Shana U'birchoteha" – that the new year should bring new blessings.It is also worthwhile to recite Tehillim on Ereb Rosh Hashanah.By observing all these customs on Ereb Rosh Hashanah, we involve ourselves in Teshuba (repentance), Tefila (prayer) and Sedaka (charity), which, as we know, have the effect of eliminating harsh decrees, so we will be worthy of a year of blessing, Amen.Summary: There are several meaningful customs that should be observed on Ereb Rosh Hashanah:1) Giving charity to the poor;2) Hatarat Nedarim;3) Baking and separating "Halla";4) Immersing in the Mikveh;5) Reciting Tehillim.In addition, it is proper to make a special effort to recite Minha on Ereb Rosh Hashanah – the final prayer of the year – with special concentration and intensity.

Special - Hashem Ori veYish'i - Psalm 27, shiur given by Rav Yitzchak Etshalom, Sept 18, 2022 There is a relatively recent custom to recite Psalm 27 ה' אורי וישעי, twice a day (either שחרית/מנחה or שחרית/ערבית) from the beginning of אלול through סוכות. This is, in and of itself, an anomaly, as there are no other practices which stretch through the penitential period of Elul through the festive season of Sukkot. A closer look at the psalm reveals an internal contradiction as well and the nature, message and tone of the psalm seems to be at odds with itself. We study the text, propose a structure and then suggest a message which resonates with both the deep reflection of Elul as well as the overwhelming rejoicing of Sukkot. This shiur was given at the Kingsway Jewish Center. Source sheet >>

Saving Sukkot: Hear why the Canadian government almost accidentally banned importing lulavs

Over the last few days, Canadian border officials blocked a shipment of lulavs bound for Montreal. Why? They believed, erroneously, that the Sukkot staple violated the country's agriculture laws, designed to prevent dangerous diseases or invasive bugs from entering the country. The situation caused a panic among religious communities in Ontario and Quebec, as the fate of thousands of lulavs suddenly seemed uncertain. In group chats and across social media, Canadian Jews began freaking out, worried that a longstanding waiver for commercial imports of these products for Sukkot was no longer being granted. To break down how it all happened, and what it was like at the apex of the tension, we're joined by Rabbi Leibele Rodal, an importer of lulavs and etrogs, who drove to New York on Sept. 20, 2022, in hopes of securing 1,000 lulavs. Plus, Shimon Koffler Fogel, head of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, will explain the diplomatic dealings that went on behind the scenes of the lulav limbo.

Dan Libenson and Lex Rofeberg are here to say that Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are solid -- as warm-up holidays. In this episode they look ahead to the festival of Sukkot, which comes after the two observances we call "The High Holidays," but historically may have been the biggest festival of them all! They ask why Sukkot, despite its initial glory, became a second-tier holiday over time -- and they consider whether, in our own time, there may be good reason to re-elevate it.To access full shownotes for this episode, click here.

In this series, Yael will explore how the sounds of the shofar awaken the soul, how Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, teaches us about the gift of repentance, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, teaches us the power of forgiveness. We'll discover the blessings of unity that Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, teaches, and how this holy season ends with a celebration of God's Word on Simchat Torah and a renewed commitment to bring His word with us into the new year.

Scripture Reading: John 6:59-71 & John 7:1-9 (a prior version of the blog said 7:1-36, but I want to slow down a bit this week) 59 Jesus said these things while he was teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum. 60 Then many of his disciples, when they heard these things, said, “This is a difficult saying! Who can understand it?” 61 When Jesus was aware that his disciples were complaining about this, he said to them, “Does this cause you to be offended? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascending where he was before? 63 The Spirit is the one who gives life; human nature is of no help! The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” (For Jesus had already known from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.) 65 So Jesus added, “Because of this I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has allowed him to come.”66 After this many of his disciples quit following him and did not accompany him any longer. 67 So Jesus said to the Twelve, “You don't want to go away too, do you?” 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God!” 70 Jesus replied, “Didn't I choose you, the Twelve, and yet one of you is the devil?” 71 (Now he said this about Judas son of Simon Iscariot, for Judas, one of the Twelve, was going to betray him.)7 After this Jesus traveled throughout Galilee. He stayed out of Judea because the Jewish leaders wanted to kill him. 2 Now the Jewish Feast of Shelters was near. 3 So Jesus' brothers advised him, “Leave here and go to Judea so your disciples may see your miracles that you are performing. 4 For no one who seeks to make a reputation for himself does anything in secret. If you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.” 5 (For not even his own brothers believed in him.)6 So Jesus replied, “My time has not yet arrived, but you are ready at any opportunity! 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I am testifying about it that its deeds are evil. 8 You go up to the feast yourselves. I am not going up to this feast because my time has not yet fully arrived.” 9 When he had said this, he remained in Galilee.Main ThemesThis Is a Difficult Saying!So far (last session) we knew that Jesus was giving the discourse about the bread of life in Capernaum. In verse 59, John narrows down the setting. Jesus is at the synagogue. And this is certainly not his first time receiving a wide audience there. Recall Mark 2:1-121 Now after some days, when he returned to Capernaum, the news spread that he was at home. 2 So many gathered that there was no longer any room, not even by the door, and he preached the word to them. 3 Some people came bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. 4 When they were not able to bring him in because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Jesus. Then, after tearing it out, they lowered the stretcher the paralytic was lying on. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” 6 Now some of the experts in the law were sitting there, turning these things over in their minds: 7 “Why does this man speak this way? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” 8 Now immediately, when Jesus realized in his spirit that they were contemplating such thoughts, he said to them, “Why are you thinking such things in your hearts? 9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, ‘Stand up, take your stretcher, and walk'? 10 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,”—he said to the paralytic— 11 “I tell you, stand up, take your stretcher, and go home.” 12 And immediately the man stood up, took his stretcher, and went out in front of them all. They were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”Synagogues were community centers, the use of which was not restricted to Saturdays. Also recall that in the Gospel of John the main opposition to Jesus has come from religious leaders, who would naturally control the synagogue.In this religious and adversarial context—but also a context in which Jesus has proven himself—the audience responds, “This is a difficult saying! Who can understand it?” There is, ironically, a difficulty of translation here. The word “difficult” connotes harshness and difficulty in following rather than a comprehension barrier. The second question, regarding understanding, can also be translated as, “Who is able to hear?” That is, who is able to heed such words. This makes sense of Jesus reply. Jesus does not call them dummies; he accuses them of being offended. The audience understood but rejected the lesson. The word for offended can also be translated as “stumble.” This term is used in the Bible and outside of it to refer to apostasy or “falling away.” Put simply, Jesus is asking whether his followers will follow him or desert him.Jesus ups the ante. “Then what if you see the Son of Man ascending where he was before?” What if they see Jesus ascending into heaven? Would more proof that Jesus is speaking the truth change their mind or would it cause a greater rejection? Forgive my pop culture reference, but the following Joan Osborne song lyrics come to mindIf God had a face what would it look like?And would you want to seeIf seeing meant that you would have to believeIn things like heaven and in Jesus and the SaintsAnd all the prophets?Jesus offers hope though. How can you heed his words? Can you comply with such a hard teaching? You must have the Spirit! The teaching is not that harsh after all. To eat the flesh and drink the blood of Jesus is to partake in his eternal life by being filled with the Spirit. This, in fact, is not harsh at all. It is an offer of a free gift!How can I get the Spirit then? Listen to Jesus' words, the Spirit and life are found there (v. 63). “This is the deed God requires—to believe in the one whom he sent.” This is the recurring theme of John's gospel. How can we share in Jesus? How can we be saved? How can we have eternal life? How can we do what God requires of us? Believe. If Jesus is who he says he is, and he does what he says he will do, he has everything covered.Many Depart but Peter ConfessesMany of those in the same crowd that was ready to force Jesus into kingship reject him. Jesus offers his disciples the chance to do the same. There is no coercion. To paraphrase, “If this is too difficult for you, you can leave too. In fact, one of you will.” Notice that Jesus is fully aware of his impending betrayal. Jesus is not surprised by the cross. He is steadily walking towards it, even by choosing his own betrayer.Peter does not reject Jesus. He confesses instead, “you are the Holy One of God.” This is a title for God himself in the Old Testament. In the Old Testament it is often said a little differently, “the Holy One of Israel.” I could provide many, many examples, but here is just one from Psalms 71:22:I will express my thanks to you with a stringed instrument,praising your faithfulness, O my God.I will sing praises to you accompanied by a harp,O Holy One of Israel.The same term (Holy One of God) could function as a title for a servant of God. So, very much in John's style, I think this is another beautiful double entendre. Jesus is both God and a servant of God. He is the Word and he does the will of the Father.To Whom Would We Go—A Personal NotePeter asks such a poignant question, “to whom would we go?” Anyone participating in this Bible study can hopefully see that I have endeavored to stay close to the text. Here, I would like to add a personal note. To the extent it is unhelpful, simply disregard it.I was not raised in a Christian home or in a Christian culture. I was an outspoken atheist by the time I was in my late teens. I can clearly remember my atheistic worldview. Looking back I realize my worldview was “full of holes” and it was quite empty too. I will explain using a not-so-quick analogy.The AnalogyAssume for just a brief moment that I were a good mechanic (I am not). You come to me with a problem. This morning, as you backed up your car to head to work, you noticed there was a puddle right under the car. The puddle is not very large. The liquid is greenish, but parts of it seem gold too. The pavement underneath is quite dark, so you have a hard time discerning how dark the liquid itself is.I am a good mechanic, so I quickly come up with some options. It could be water, oil, coolant, and transmission fluid. I theorize that water would have evaporated by the morning and scratch it off the list. I also know that transmission fluid is dark red, so it's probably not the right answer. Now the answer is narrowed down to two possibilities: oil or coolant. Coolant is generally green, but if spread thin on dark pavement it can look yellowish. Oil looks yellow, unless dirty. Then it looks black. Your car is old, you haven't changed the oil in a few thousand miles, so the oil would probably look black. The best explanation for your mystery puddle is coolant.Now further assume another mechanic is there too. He argues, almost as convincingly, that oil is the best explanation. A few thousand miles is not enough to turn oil black, he says, and the car, although old, is not burning any oil.After we are done theorizing about the puddle, we move on to a different topic. You tell me that your car has been running hot. Oh dear, that leaves quite a few possibilities. The problem could lie in the radiator, belts, hoses, oil, cooling system, water pump, and bad thermostat. Now, you probably already want to pick one particular solution given the prior paragraphs. Please, for a moment, refrain. Assume that I, the brilliant mechanic, again engage in my Holmesian deductive process while also ignoring everything mentioned in the prior paragraphs. I review all the evidence carefully and conclude the problem is in the cooling system. But that wretched other mechanic is still available to second-guess my conclusion. He believes the best explanation for the car overheating is the thermostat—in fact, the car is not overheating at all. We both lay out our evidence and either conclusion seems likely.Finally, you tell me another odd story. The car smells funny. “Funny,” I ask, “how?” Well, it's not an unpleasant smell. A little sweet. Again, I know you (the reader) are dying to jump to a conclusion. Hold your horses for one more minute. While ignoring the prior paragraphs, I theorize about all the possible causes. Then I lay out a sound and thorough argument as to why the most probable explanation for that smell is a coolant leak. At this point the other mechanic scoffs at me. There are a thousand possible explanations for an odd, faintly sweet smell. From spilled soda to air freshener. Any firm conclusion is certainly unwarranted, he convincingly argues.Now, let's retell the story a different way. You come to me, the mechanic, with the following issues: there was a greenish, yellowish puddle under the car, the car is getting hot, and there is a faintly sweet smell in the car. The solution is obviously a coolant leak. To quote our former president, “I know it, you know it, everyone knows it.”At this point let's make two observations. When the symptoms are isolated, one can have reasonable debates as to the best explanation of each. When the symptoms are conjoined, the best explanation is inarguable.The ApplicationOk, so what does my little story have to do with anything? It seems to me that reality suffers from several “symptoms.” These are facts of the world that are almost undeniable while at the same time being puzzling. The universe seems to have a beginning. There are powerful scientific reasons to believe this—but frankly this is a fact wholly within our own common sense. If time is infinite in the past, how would we have reached this very moment? Why has energy not fully devolved into heat if the universe exists eternally in the past? The universe seems oddly fine-tuned for life. The more we learn about the universe, the more we realize that if the very fundamental rules of the universe (like the gravitational force) were any different, life could not exist. I am not talking about human life—no life could exist. But the symptoms get stranger. There seems to be good and evil. Not just good. Not just evil. The view that everything is how it should be can account for good but not evil. The view that matter is all that exists and life is meaningless can account for neither. There seems to be minds that have intentionality. If someone steals my wallet, I blame the criminal. I really do blame the criminal. I don't blame some unguided chain of events that inevitably resulted in that outcome. There seems to be beauty. The view that beauty is in the eye of the beholder is sheer nonsense—we might not say it, but we all know this. Taste might be in the eye of the beholder. A person can have bad taste and like the ugly, but that doesn't make the ugly into beautiful. Shockingly, mathematics—a completely abstract concept—seems to describe the physical reality. Math would exist even if no time, matter, or space existed. It is untethered from the universe, and yet it can elegantly summarize the universe's workings. People seem to have inherent worth. And people seem to have a higher worth than animals, so the mere possession of brain function does not seem to entirely explain people's worth. Life seems to have purpose. Take the Star Wars philosophy—the force always returns to balance. That view can account for good and evil, but it eliminates any sense of purpose. A life may seem to have a purpose but history as a whole has no arch. And because of that, neither does life if considered within the wider framework.Forgive my stream of conscience above, but it accurately reflects the quandary. Sure, naturalism might be able to explain fine-tuning by positing a multiverse, but it can't explain good and evil. Sure, some form of Taoism could account for good and evil, but it can't account for purpose. Sure, new ageism exalting the divine nature of individuals can account for people's inherent worth, but it struggles to explain the way people intentionally hurt one another, much less what should be done about it. And so allow me to repeat Peter's question, “If not Christ, to whom will I go?”Christ was not my default choice. I was not raised to believe in him. Nonetheless, the more I realize how he explains every “symptom” of the universe the more I realize I could not not believe. What else would I believe? And notice I have not mentioned the most personal “symptom” of all. It seems to me I am not perfect; I am not good. Who can speak to me the words of life?The Feast of TabernaclesChapter 7 opens up with the Feast of Shelters, known by several other names but perhaps most popularly as the Feast of Tabernacles. I will present an edited version of the explanation given a Christian website:The Feast of Tabernacles, also known as the Feast of Booths and Sukkot, is the seventh and last feast that the Lord commanded Israel to observe and one of the three feasts that Jews were to observe each year by going to “appear before the Lord your God in the place which He shall choose” (Deuteronomy 16:16). . . . [I]t was at this time that Solomon's Temple was dedicated to the Lord (1 Kings 8:2).It was at the Feast of Tabernacles that the Israelites, who had returned to rebuild the temple, gathered to celebrate under the leadership of Joshua and Zerubbabel (Ezra 3). Later, the Jews heard Ezra read the Word of God to them during the Feast of Tabernacles (Nehemiah 8). Ezra's preaching resulted in a great revival as the Israelites confessed and repented of their sins. . . .The feast begins five days after the Day of Atonement and at the time the fall harvest had just been completed. It was a time of joyous celebration as the Israelites celebrated God's continued provision for them in the current harvest and remembered His provision and protection during the 40 years in the wilderness.As one of the three feasts that all “native born” male Jews were commanded to participate in . . . . As one of the pilgrim feasts (when Jewish males were commanded to go to Jerusalem), it was also the time when they brought their tithes and offerings to the Temple (Deuteronomy 16:16). . . . Thousands upon thousands of people coming together to remember and celebrate God's deliverance and His provision, all living in temporary shelters or booths as part of the requirements of the feast. . . .Lasting eight days, the Feast of Tabernacles begins and ends with a Sabbath day of rest. During the eight days of the feast, the Israelites would dwell in booths or tabernacles that were made from the branches of trees (Leviticus 23:40–42). . . .Leviticus 23:43 tells us the purpose of the festival, “so that your future generations may know that I made the Israelites live in shelters when I brought them out from the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God."Jesus and His BothersJudeans want to kill Jesus. Galileans are simply unwilling to follow. And Jesus' brothers are no exception. Although they have travelled with Jesus and his mother Mary, they do not trust Jesus' plan. This is disconcerting. Honoring kinship ties was extremely important in Jewish culture. For those closest to a teacher to disbelieve him could be seen as discrediting. At least one of Jesus' brothers (James) would later become a leader in the church, and this disbelief could be used against him. Yet John doesn't shy away from the disbelief of Jesus' brothers.What is the problem with Jesus going to Jerusalem and performing miracles in front of everyone? His time has not yet come. Notice, the time will come. There will come a moment when Jesus goes to Jerusalem, makes a public appearance, and allows his enemies to kill him. Not yet though. The point is reinforce: the cross is deliberate.Then comes the main point of these verses (1-9). The world cannot hate the world, and the world will hate the spirit. The verses do not include the word spirit, but that is the dualism that John returns to time and time again. This is a major theme in the Gospel of John and in the New Testament as a whole. The world has turned from what is good. The world has turned from its intended purpose to worship God, who is good. Whenever God or one of his followers points that out to the world, the world hates it. Otherwise the world would be confronted with its own guilt.

What's the greatest distance between two points? As host Yael Eckstein shares on today's program, it's the distance between our head and our heart. On an intellectual level, we know what we believe, but acting on that belief is another thing. Bridging this distance is part of our life-long service to God, what Yael calls “faith-living.” Every year during the observance of Sukkot, the Festival of Tabernacles (Booths), the Jewish people practice “faith-living” by leaving the comfort of their homes and living in a rickety makeshift shelter known as a sukkah. As she and her family eat and sleep in their sukkah for seven days, Yael explains they are reminded that we live by faith in God, trusting Him to provide all our needs — just as the Israelites did thousands of years ago while wandering through the desert for 40 years.

Rav Yechiel Michel Epstein (1829-1908), in the introduction to the Hoshen Mishpat section of his Aruch Ha'shulhan, makes an important observation about our millennia-old Halachic tradition (listen to audio recording for precise citation). He notes that although we find in the Talmud many disputes on a wide range of Halachic issues, there are no disagreements regarding the fundamental definitions of the Misvot. The arguments among the Hachamim relate only to the details of the Misvot, but not to their basic definitions. An Am Ha'aretz (individual who is ignorant of Torah) might have the impression that Rabbis argue over every issue about Halacha, and there is no uniformity at all. But this is far from true. There are many disputes relating to the details, but the fundamental aspects of the Misvot are, and always have been, universally accepted.The Aruch Ha'shulhan cites numerous examples to illustrate his point. There is no disagreement, he observes, on the definition of the Torah's requirement to take a "Peri Etz Hadar" on Sukkot; all Sages always followed the assumption that this phrase refers to an Etrog. Likewise, it was universally accepted that when the Torah establishes the liability of "an eye for an eye," it means monetary compensation, and not literally removing an eye. No Talmud scholar or student ever questioned whether the Tefillin Shel Rosh is made with four compartments, or whether there are two sections of the Torah written inside the Mezuza. And all Sages in every generation agreed on the number of Berachot in the Amida prayer (eighteen plus the additional Beracha of Ve'la'minim), the number of Berachot recited before and after Shema, and the basic text of Pesukeh De'zimra. There are, of course, technical differences regarding the details of the text. Sepharadim recite the text of "Ahabat Olam," whereas many Ashkenazim say "Ahaba Rabba." Sepharadim recite "Hodu" before "Baruch She'amar," whereas Ashkenazim recite it after "Baruch She'amar." But there is and always has been uniformity regarding the basic structure of these prayer services. The Aruch Ha'shulhan also notes the uniformity regarding the basic prohibitions of Shabbat and Yom Tob. True, there are many differences of opinion regarding the technical details of how these prohibitions apply, but all accept the basic thirty-nine categories of forbidden activities. And all Jews across the world, from one end of the earth until the other, always begin and end Shabbat at the same time.The Aruch Ha'shulhan emphasizes the point that this observation provides compelling proof to the authenticity of our Halachic tradition. Even though Jews in different countries had no communication with one another for centuries (they did not have telephones or email…), they observed the same traditions, with only minor, technical differences distinguishing the communities from one another. If a Jew from Yemen, for example, would have traveled to a Jewish community in Eastern Europe, he would have observed the same Shabbat and participated in the same basic liturgical service as he did back home. The Jews in Poland and Austria followed the same basic Torah tradition as the Jews in Baghdad, Tripoli and Tunis. As the Aruch Ha'shulhan observes, this was true even before the publication of the Shulhan Aruch some four hundred years ago which unified world Jewry under a single Halachic code.And this is an extraordinary miracle. Normally, traditions are lost and forgotten over time. But God gave us His promise that "Lo Tishachah Mi'pi Zar'o" (Debarim 31:21) – that the Torah will never be forgotten from among the Jewish people. The miracle of the preservation of a uniform Torah tradition – notwithstanding the numerous discrepancies in the fine details – testifies to the fulfillment of this promise, and to the eternal truth of our ancient Halachic tradition.

We continue this week from where we left off last week in "The Dust of Jacob Pt2" Here we delve into where John writes about how the angels of the four winds held them back until the righteous were sealed. If the righteous are somehow in the Clouds of Glory, even in a preliminary gathering among the nations, their smoke of sacrifice and prayer would go straight up as in the Wilderness, unaffected by the four winds: “After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth so that no wind would blow on the earth, or on the sea, or on any tree.” (Re 7:1) The stillness of winds upon the earth reflects what happened within the protection of Sukkot of Glory in the wilderness. The smoke of the altar fire went straight up, unaffected by the winds. The job of the four winds can be to gather, to scatter, vitalize, or simply hold still/stasis. ”Holding back” may be complemented by another angel's mission of gathering. Typically, angels do one thing at a time, requiring multiple ministers to address multiple steps in a mission.

Welcome to Bible Fiber where we are encountering the textures and shades of the prophetic tapestry in a year-long study of the twelve minor prophets, one prophet each month. I am Shelley Neese, president of The Jerusalem Connection, a Christian organization devoted to sharing the story of the people of Israel, both ancient and modern. This week we are reading the second chapter of Haggai. We know a good deal about the historical background to Haggai's prophecies because of the book of Ezra. Ezra names Haggai as a prophet who ministered to the regathered Jews in Judah (5:1-2; 6:14). However, we know nothing of Haggai's patrimony or biographical profile. For example, Ezra did not include Haggai in his extensive list of the first wave of returnees from Babylon, a notable omission. Perhaps, Haggai was in a subsequent wave, or Haggai never left Judah at all. The Babylonians did not deport all the Jews in Judea, only the prominent citizens. Possibly, Haggai's parents were among the “poorest people of the land” (2 Kings 24:14). If so, Haggai was prophesying as a local Jerusalemite who had been awaiting the return of his people, living among the ashes of Jerusalem his whole life. The word of the Lord came to Haggai for the second time on October 17, 520 BCE. This was the seventh day of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. We know that fact because of Haggai's precise dating formula, but the prophet makes no specific mention of the holiday. Interestingly, the name Haggai is connected to chag, Hebrew for festival.

The ​Te​nth Month: Tammuz I will always think of late June / July as schools-over-summer-camp-time. Like mental imagery of over air conditioned echoey hallways and sweltering golden hour mornings. Maybe that's just summer in the south though.... lol. I don't know if it's the cloudless skies paired with the dry air and crazy strong sun, but my brain associates the peak summer month of Tammuz with slow paces and / or restlessness. I have learned that the cloudlessness of the sky means that Tammuz is a good month to connect with G-d - fewer barriers between us and G-d. This quiet also lends to our connecting with G-d. Tammuz is the 10th month from Tishrei, but the 4th month from Nisan. Nisan, Iyar, and Sivan are considered the "spring months," and the summer months begin with Tammuz. The month of Tammuz is a month of transformation - from one end of the spectrum to the other. By definition, Tammuz was a Mesopotamian god of fertility. This juxtaposition of this non-Jewish deity's name and the fact that it's still on our calendar exemplifies this quality of transformation. Reuven, the tribe of the month, was the first child of Leah and Jacob. Reuven is shown to concern himself with his mother's fertility as well as the status of Leah and Jacob's relationship in the Torah. The connection of Reuven's focus on family life, matched with the origin of Tammuz's name isn't coincidental. One of the main events of this month is the fast day of ShveiEsrei b'Tammuz / the 17th of Tammuz, the day that both the Sin of the Golden Calf and the destruction of the Beit HaMikdash, the Temple in Jerusalem, occurred. It is said that when the Messiah / Moshiach comes, all of our saddest days, (like the 17th of Tammuz), will be our most major holidays. The big ones like Pesach and Sukkot will become secondary because these days will hold the energy of 180 degree transformations - from destruction to rebuilding. Back to the summer and the quality of change - I feel like kids always come back to school in the fall as transformed people. Maybe tanned, or taller, or weighed down with friendship bracelets, more confident having learned a new skill / hobby... hopefully all positive transformations and growths. So I am tapping into this energy of change and growth in Tammuz. ______________ Cont'd… For full text, email me at shirajkaplan@gmail.com or join my email list here. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/iggerethalevana/message

Over the past few episodes we looked at correlations between the sharp sickles of Passover, specifically the First Fruits of the Barley, and the sharp sickles of Revelation Fourteen. Within that passage of Revelation, we read a very specific prophecy: And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe.” So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God. And the wine press was trampled outside the city, and blood came out from the wine press, up to the horses' bridles, for a distance of 1,600 stadia. (Re 14:17-20) Yeshua harvests for Firstfruits of the Barley and Shavuot, the conclusion of human “wheat.” The angel of fire harvests those from the Vineyard as well as the vineyard of the whole earth to throw them into the winepress of Sukkot, when the decrees of Rosh HaShanah are executed upon the whole world. Sukkot is also known as “The Feast of the Nations.” One may enjoy the Feast of the Nations with Yeshua, or one may be part of a nation consumed by his wrath. As we've seen, the prophecies of Scripture are fulfilled multiple times in history. Often there are textual markers, such as a doubled word or repetition within the text, or sometimes a chiasm. Blood up to the horses' bridles is a very precise prophecy, and it leads the reader to a previous fulfillment. In the last stand of the Jews who followed Bar Kokhba, a false messiah, the Romans massacred the inhabitants of Beitar. According to the lone survivor of the massacre, the blood in Beitar ran up to the Roman horses' noses. That leads to the Footsteps prophecy of Song of Songs, which prophesies the “turn” of Messiah on the mountains to meet with his Beloved Israel. 2:17 Until the cool of the day, when the shadows flee, turn, my beloved, and be like a gazelle or a young stag on the mountains of Bether. The mountains of Bether are an odd location because they are not mentioned anywhere else in Scripture, and even the Romans' massacre there was far in the future when first prophesied in the Song. There must have been a singular event in history that would mark a step of Messiah's turning to his Beloved.

It happens quite commonly during the period of Sefirat Ha'omer that somebody asks his friend after sundown which number should be counted that evening, before the friend has himself counted the Omer. It might appear, at first glance, that if the friend responds, then he effectively fulfills the Misva, and then cannot count the Omer later with a Beracha. What is the proper way to respond to such an inquiry to avoid forfeiting the Beracha over this Misva?Hacham Ovadia Yosef rules that in order to avoid all potential problems and complications, it is preferable to respond to the inquiry by informing the questioner of the previous night's counting. For example, if somebody asks his friend after sundown on the fourteenth night of the Omer which day he should count (and the friend has not yet counted), it is best for the friend to respond, "Last night was the thirteenth day." This response avoids all potential Halachic complications, and the friend can, according to all authorities and without any doubts, later count the Omer properly with a Beracha.Another option is to answer the question directly, stating that night's counting, but with the clear, explicit intent not to fulfill the Misva of Sefirat Ha'omer with this response. If a person performs a Misva act with the specific intention not to fulfill the Misva, then he does not fulfill the Misva. Thus, for example, on Sukkot, when we must recite the Beracha over the Arba Minim (four species) before fulfilling the Misva, one may lift the Arba Minim with the specific intent not to fulfill the Misva, and then recite the Beracha. (Others first lift the Lulab without the Etrog, and then lift the Etrog only after reciting the Beracha.) Here, too, if a person specifically has in mind not to fulfill the Misva of Sefirat Ha'omer when he responds to his friend's inquiry, "Today is such-and-such day of the Omer," then he does not fulfill the Misva, and he may thus count again later with a Beracha.If a person did not employ either of these options, and instead answered the question directly without explicit intent not to fulfill the Misva, has he forfeited the Beracha, or may he still count with a Beracha despite having already stated the day of the Omer?Hacham Ovadia rules that the Halacha depends on the particular situation. If this occurred during the first six days of the Omer, when the counting entails simply stating the number of days, as there are as yet no complete weeks to count, then one indeed forfeits the Beracha if he gives an explicit answer. Meaning, if a person informs his friend, "Tonight is the fifth night," then he may not count with a Beracha that night. Even though he counted in English, his counting is valid and he has fulfilled the Misva, and so he cannot count again with a Beracha. Needless to say, he resumes counting with a Beracha the next night.If, however, he responded by simply stating the number – "Five" – without stating, "Tonight is the fifth night," then he may still count that night with a Beracha. Hacham Ovadia ruled that we may employ in this situation a "Sefek Sefeka," or "double doubt." First, it is possible that he has not fulfilled the Misva since he did not intend to fulfill the Misva through his response, and it is possible that the Misva cannot be fulfilled without the intention to do so ("Misvot Serichot Kavana"). And even if we accept the premise that Sefirat Ha'omer, as a Rabbinical obligation (as opposed to a Biblical obligation), does not require intent, it is possible that one cannot fulfill the Misva without explicitly stating, "Today is…" Hence, as there are two uncertainties concerning the status of the individual's response, he is allowed to count again properly with a Beracha in this case.Starting from the seventh day, and through the end of the Omer period, one may count with a Beracha even if he had explicitly informed his fellow of that night's counting, such as if he explicitly stated, "Tonight is the fourteenth night." After the sixth day, this individual will always be in a situation of "Sefek Sefeka," since according to some authorities one does not fulfill the obligation of Sefirat Ha'omer after the sixth day if he counts only the days, without counting the weeks. And since, as mentioned, we may also take into account the possibility that the Misva is not fulfilled without intent, a person may count with a Beracha even if he had given a direct response to his friend's inquiry. It must be emphasized that this applies only after the sixth night of the Omer, from the seventh night of the Omer until the end of the Omer period. (Of course, one certainly should not respond by stating both the days and the weeks; for example, one should not say, "Tonight is the fourteenth night, which is two weeks." If he does, then he may not then count with a Beracha that night.)As mentioned, however, it is far preferable to respond to such an inquiry by mentioning the previous night's counting. Besides avoiding all complications, it also makes it clear to the questioner that one should not respond directly to such a question before one has counted. If one answers directly, even in a permissible manner, as outlined above, the questioner, who is unfamiliar with these Halachic intricacies, might mistakenly assume that one may always respond directly to this question without it affecting his recitation of the Beracha later on. For this reason, too, it is best to respond indirectly, by mentioning the previous night's counting.Summary: If a person is asked after sundown which night of the Omer it is, and he has yet to count the Omer that night, he should respond by noting the previous night's counting, rather than answering directly. This is the preferred method of answering such a question. Another, though less preferred, option is to answer directly with specific intent not to fulfill the Misva. If one answered the question directly, by stating "Today is such-and-such day," without the specific intent not to fulfill the Misva, he may nevertheless count that night with a Beracha. If, however, this occurred on one of the first six nights of the Omer, then he cannot count later with a Beracha, unless he had only stated the number, without saying, "Today is…"
