Kitzim, Kitzim, and More Kitzim

I recently attended a Shiur about the End of Days by a certain rav mekubal who was visiting my city and he pointed some information that I was aware of and also some
information that I was not aware of.

  • He talked about how 1000 years is like 1 of Hashem's days, and how the Ramban goes through each millenium and how it fits into each day, and if you divide the last 1000 years of the 6000 years of history into 24 "hours", and take the last 12 hours and divide it by the hours mentioned in Sanhedrin 38b, it comes out that just as Adam Harishon was עמד על רגליו on the 5th hour, the State of Israel was born on 5 Iyyar, 5708. And just as on the 6th hour, Adam Harishon was קרא שמות, so too the first Gulf War was starting to shape up in 5750 and people were scared and started doing Teshuva (I forgot how he tied it into קרא שמות, though)

  • He also mentioned the Hesed Le'Avraham's 5760 prediction, which is the same number as the minimum amount of beitzim in a kosher mikveh.

  • He also mentioned the Ra'avad's prediction of 5768. (Although he didn't mention the Imrei Bina by name - maybe another sefer written by him - See the first bullet here, this from Nava and this from גילוי). The Ra'avad apparently said that in 5768, the first thing to be punished is the money, followed by children, followed by the body (apparently, similar to Iyov's suffering). This is why the financial collapse began in 5768. Unfortunately, I couldn't find this source on the web anywhere.

  • Incidentally, he also said that the reason why the financial collapse hit the USA first is because the Jews are the source of Beracha in the world. When the country with the most Jews in the world was the USA, then the USA was blessed with money. Now, that Israel has overtaken the USA in population of Jews, the USA doesn't have the merit any longer. Thus, the financial crisis.

  • He also mentioned the statement of the Ostrovster Rebbi that the first 2 Birkat Hahamas to fall out on the 14th of Nissan happened at Yetziat Mitzraim and with Mordechai and Esther, and the last will be right before Mashiah's arrival. (I had some issues with this statement before, Bimhilat the Rebbi - Lo Zachiti Lehavin.)

  • He also mentioned the Mayan calendar ending in 2012, which he said showed that even the non-Jews knew about this time period being special. I personally don't care for this because once you start bringing non-Jewish proofs, you're getting into dangerous territory.

  • He also mentioned 5774 being mentioned by the Sefer Karnayim and its Peirush - the Dan Yadin over 300 years ago.


May we forget about all the kitzim and merit the coming of Mashiah without delay.

Beautiful summary.

BTW, regarding "the reason why the financial collapse hit the USA first is because Israel has overtaken the USA in population of Jews, the USA doesn't have the merit any longer. Thus, the financial crisis"

The AriZal explains it...
The spiritual reason for the American and global economy collapse is because of Nisosot Kedusha sparks of holiness

Until recently, the vast majority of Jews lived in America and the Nisosot Kedusha (spiritual energy) provided America with materialistic abundance and power. So what caused the American and global economy to collapse? The answer is the process of separating and elevating the sparks of holiness in the United States and the world is completing and the holy sparks are restoring to its original source.

You should tell the name of this "Rav Mekubal". He spoke publicly, it is not a secret!

You're right. His name is Rav Eliyahu Assado. He is also a Rosh Kollel from Yerushalayim.

Yaak,

You got the link to Sanhedrin right, its 38b, but the post says 34b.

While I'm commenting let me ask: Can you actually read that sefer Dan Yadin? If you can, please summarize, I can't read that sort of print.

Very difficult to read. I reconstructed it to the best of my ability below. I believe the rav mentioned 5772-5773, but it seems to be 5774 unless I'm missing something. (He also talked about ideas mentioned on the second column of page 43.) I boldfaced the part that I believe he's referring to, which isn't very clearly talking about a year, but the best indication I can find.

קרניים מאמר יד
סוד שבע מאות שבעים וארבע חלונות שבחדר "מצפץ עדת" שבהם קרן בן דוד וסודו בו ??? כאשר יבא אז יתעוררו הדין קרניים בסוד ש"ת העליון ??? בסוד לכל אחד מלוי שבכלה העליונה ?? ואז???

דן ידין:
א. "סוד שבע מאות שבעים וארבע חלונות שבחדר מצפץ וכו' " כוונתי לבאר בסוף מאמר וכמנין "משיח" שיגאלנו במהרה בימינו אמן. והיינו שיש תשע"ד חלונות שבחדר הנקרא "מצפץ עדת" ??? "מצפץ" בא"ת ב"ש יקוק [שם הויה] ??? "מצפץ" גמטריא ש' "עדת" הוא תע"ד מספר הכל תשע"ד מספר "קרן משיח בן דוד" והנה ידוע תדע שהם בעולם הבריאה. וזהו שכתב המחבר "קרן בן דוד וסודו בו". י"ל כדפרשתי הסוד מרומז בו כי "קרן משיח בן דוד" מספרו "מצפץ עדת". וי"ל "עדת יקוק" [שם הויה] כי הויה בא"ת ב"ש "מצפץ" וק"ל.

ב. "בסוד כאשר יבא אזי יתעוררו שני קרניים" קרני ישועה מסוד אבא קדישא חכמה שבכתר הנקרא ש"ת בסוד מי שת בטחות חכמה ודע שני פעמים "קרן קרן" גימטריא ש"ת ממש וזה שאמר המחבר הקדוש "הדין קרניים" מסוד ש"ת העליון וק"ל

ג. "בסוד לכל אחד מלוי שבכלה העליונה" פירוש וסוד תוכן כוונתו שהנה ש"ת סוד חכמה ונשאר עוד עד שיהיה התשע"ד בענין "מצפץ עדת" ומבואר ?? שני מילואים משם ס"ג כזה "ודיאוי" שהשם ס"ג הוא בבינה שהיא כלה עליונה ולא עטרת שהיא כלה תחתונה ונודע היות שם ס"ג בביהנ שהיא ה' עליונה שבשם הויה. והנה מלוי של שם ס"ג מספר ל"ז. וקח לקרן אחד ל"ז ול"ז לקרן שני ויהיה בין הכל תשע"ד כי ב' פעמים קרן הוא גימטריא ת"ש - ב' פעמים ל"ז ל"ז גימטריא ע"ד בין הכל מספר "מצפץ עדת".

עץ הדעת - בסוד עץ יקוק [שם הויה] כי הויה גימטריא עץ כזה ק"ס: אותיות י-ה בהבאה י' פעמים ה' הרי נ' - ה' פעמים י' הרי מאה וקח אותיות ו-ה מהשם בהבאה ו' פעמים ה' הרי ל' - ה' פעמים ו' ג"כ ל' והרי ס' ובין כל ד' אותיות הויה גימטריא ע"ץ שמספרו ק"ס והוא בסוד "ויורהו ה' עץ" ועיין ??? פ' שלח לך בסוד שנתנו לנשותיהן לשתות מים מאררים כדכתיב "ושם נסהו" ע"ש. ועיין ב"מחנה דן" פלאות בזה

Yaak,

Finances, children, corporeal--good point about the parallel to Iyov. I could not find a source but would like to understand the Ra'avad's teachings on this progression. Please advise if you discover this.

Kol tuv,
HaSepharadi

To the first anonomous and in regard to Nava's "make aliya now" theory: Interesting concept. But keep in mind, there are still plenty of sparks in America that need to be elevated. There are tons of Jews that don't know they're Jewish or simply don't identify with it. These sparks shouldn't be abandoned by us Jews jumping ship to the Holy Land. We have an obligation to make the land we're in holy.

To the latest Anonymous:

The only holy land is the Land of Israel. The rabbis even decreed that all of the lands outside of Israel should be assumed to have a low level of tum'ah (tum'at eretz ha'amim). The Ramchal teaches in Maamar HaGeulah that in the future, chutz la'aretz will become tahor, but it will never become kadosh.
