Hurricane דין Approaching

After the Carribean and Mexico were pounded with Hurricane Dean a few weeks ago, the entire world is about to go through its own hurricane of sorts. It's called Hurricane דין.

Yes, Rosh Hashana is approaching, and, as the Mishna tells us, the whole world is judged on this day:

בראש השנה, כל באי עולם עוברין לפניו כבני מרון, שנאמר היוצר יחד, ליבם; המבין, אל כל מעשיהם


There is no escape from judgement, as we read on Musaf of Rosh Hashana in Zichronot:

מי לא נפקד ביום הזה



The path to Teshuva is our only defense mechanism. We must use it to survive.

And then, with Hashem's help, we will merit to hear the sound of the Great Shofar on that Great and Awesome Day.

Wishing you all a Shana Tova and a Ketiva Vahatima Tova.
May we hear good tidings in 5768.

Welcome back.

With all the noise and warnings on the subject, maybe now is a good time to repost your excellent rendition of where and who Gog and Magog are. That explanation of Magog being in Iran/Pakistan was very enlightening.

It may be opportune for all of us to reread it.

Wishing you and yours a Gmar Chasima Tova and a Year full of Brochos, Hatzlacha, Briut, and Parnassa Tov Meod - and, of course, the appearance of Eliyahu announcing our dear Moshiach.

Here in the Holy Land we know that the weather comes from G-d.

The nation of America will surely be judged for its pushing to create the "Palestinian" state in the Land of Israel. This is a personal offense to HaShem himself. I can't wait to see the nations judged for plotting against Israel and Yerushalayim.

It is better to silently remove error rather than let it stand. To avoid Chilul HaShem. It is even better to acknowledge error. That is Kidush HaShem. Blessings.
