Terror in Toulouse

The ugly face of Jew-hatred has struck again in Europe.  This time, in southern France.  The victims are:

Yonatan Sandler
Gavriel Sandler
Aryeh Sandler
Miriam Monsonego

The attack occurred on the second day of the week of Vayikra.  This corresponds to the second Aliya of the week.  Sheni of Vayikra begins with the following verse:

 וְאִם מִן-הָעוֹף עֹלָה קָרְבָּנוֹ, לַיהוָה:  וְהִקְרִיב מִן-הַתֹּרִים, אוֹ מִן-בְּנֵי הַיּוֹנָה--אֶת-קָרְבָּנוֹ
And if his offering to the LORD be a burnt-offering of fowls, then he shall bring his offering of turtle-doves, or of young pigeons.

Those murdered today are a Korban Olah - a burnt offering to atone for all of us. 

What was brought?

מן התרים is the gematria of 745.
מרים חנה בת יעקב מנסנגו  (Miriam Chana bat Yaakov Monsengo, HY"D) with the Kollel is the gematria of 745.
Also, the beginning מ and ending רים of the phrase "מן התרים"spell Miriam.

בני היונה hint to the sons of יונתן - Yonatan Sandler, i.e. Gavriel and Aryeh Sandler, HY"D.

The rest of the phrase:
או מן בני היונה את קרבנו is the gematria of 860 with the 4 words.
יונתן סנדלר - Yonatan Sandler, HY"D, is the gematria of 860.

May those who were murdered today be an atonement for all of Kelal Yisrael.

Last year on Parshas Vayikra was the karbanos of the Fogel family, HY"D.

What's your point, Yaakov, to show Torah has in it everything? Every faithful Jew knows that! Torah, after all, is the blueprint of the world, so what's so amazing about finding world events in Torah? Do you want us to take our names and figure their gematrias and compare them with what is in the daily Torah portion, and do this every day? What good is hindsight? We are seeking foresight, no? What's your point Yaakov?

Yes, it is to show that the Torah has everything in it. Even if every faithful Jew knows that, it needs to be והשיבות אל לבבך. When we see it clearly with things that just occurred, we can achieve that next level of knowledge.

Also, I disagree with your assertion that we only need foresight and not hindsight. Hindsight is important in its own right. But even according to your view, hindsight will help us with our foresight. You know what is said about people who don't learn from history.

The gemara has clear examples of things hinted to in the Torah. As it says, "ליכא מידי דלא רמיזא באורייתא". In various places, the gemara asks, "המן מן התורה מנין" and "אסתר מן התורה מנין". Why don't we ask on the gemara, "What's your point, gemara, to show Torah has in it everything? Every faithful Jew knows that!" No, we need examples.

The Ramban famously gave his Torah code that found the Rambam in the Torah. That, too, is an example.

This is another example.

So why blog at all Vanguard? I don't see your point, and why are you angry with Yaak?

I hope he continues to point out all these signs in the Torah, not only for the people who may know they are there, but for the thousands of people who DON'T know they are there, and who read our blogs every week.

Devorah - You sense anger where no anger exists.

Yaak - The gematrias you reveal are nice, but teach us nothing - that's my point.

If you want to test your skills, I say use them in forecast mode. As an example, here are several parameters you might want to throw into the mix: Obama, 2012, Santorum or the other guy, president, usa, ... see what I mean? Now THAT should have eye-opening appeal!

In the Vanguard,

I'm not sure why you think that I don't do that here on this blog. Every Rav Fish post is about the future.

This post happened to be about what happened in Toulouse, which happened in the past at the time that I wrote this post. I'm not following your line of thought at all.

Yaak, point me to one gematria finding that predicts a future event.

As I said, every single Rav Fish post uses the gematria of 5772, 5773, 5774, and 5775 to indicate that those are years of geula.
