Geula Update from Rav Fish - Terumah 5775

From Rav Fish's latest:


  • Mistake in the Mezuza in the Bnei Torah synagogue in Har Nof (where the terrorist attack took place)
    • The Mezuza checker - R' Aharon Shmuel Buch Shlit"a from Yerushalayim - checked the Mezuza from the main entrance of the Bnei Torah synagogue in Har Nof, Yerushalayim where the terrible massacre occurred, and found a Pesul (a problem that invalidates the Mezuza) in the beginning of the word ובקומך in the top of the letter ו [in the second paragraph].  
      • And as one may recall, the attack occurred in the morning prayer - ובקומך.  
      • R' M. P. adds that the name of the checker is hinted to in the words ובשכבך ובקומך.
      • R' S. Reiskin adds that ובקומך can be explained as those that rise up (קמים) against us to kill us.
      • Alternatively, it refers to the rising up (קימה) of the Redemption by way of the letter ו, and because there were blemishes in the letter ו did the massacre occur.
      • Also, the letters that follow בקומ"ך are גרזן (ax) exactly in order, and the murderers used an ax there simply to murder.
  • Eved Ivri and Mashiah
    • Tzara'at and Mashiah
      • The gemara in Sanhadrin (98b) says that the suffering of Mashiah, who bears the iniquities of Israel, is Tzara'at.
      • And we also find by King David (Yoma 22b) that he contracted Tzara'at for 6 months.
        • Also, the verse (Vayikra 13:13) כלו הפך לבן טהור is Sofei Teivot כנור, hinting to the Kinor [harp?] of David.
        • Also, the Zohar (Balak 206a) talks about all types of Tzara'at coming from David's eyes against the Pelishti.
      • And we also find that the holy spark that livens up the Tzara'at has the aspect of זהב - gold, as Rashi (Vayikra 13:37) explains that צהב (yellow) is similar to זהב (gold).
        • Also, in Rashi (Vayikra 14:34) tells us that the Tzara'at of houses was so that the Jewish people can find the Emorite golden treasures.
        • And we explained that King David has the aspect of זהב - gold, which is why דוד is the gematria of זהב, why his hair was golden in color, and why he had a golden scepter in his crown.
    • Eved Ivri, Tzara'at and Mashiah
      • It appears that this is why עבד עברי is the gematria of משיח.
      • King David was the grandson of עובד.
      • Mashiah, who suffers with the aspect of מצרע [Metzora] due to the outer forces grabbing hold, also has the aspect of a מרצע [awl, used to signify a lifetime Eved Ivri], meaning that he accepts upon himself the suffering for the sake of Kelal Yisrael - with the same aspect as a slave whose ear was pierced.
      • Also, Mashiah is called an Eved, as in the verse (Yeshaya 52:13) הנה ישכיל עבדי.
      • And I also heard from R' Tzvi Fenton that עבדים is the Rashei Teivot of דוד בן ישי עבדך משיחך.
      • R' M.P. adds that Mashiah has the aspect of Eved Ivri since he suffers for the sake of Am Yisrael, which has the aspect of an Eved (slave) to the Am Ha'ivri (Jewish nation).  
        • Also, the fact that an Eved Ivri works for 6 years hints to the 6000 years that the world exists, and the fact that he goes free on the 7th hints to the 7th millennium, which is preceded by Tosefet Shabbat.
      • And since we find in the gemara (Kiddushin 20a) that anyone who acquires an Eved Ivri acquires a master (אדון) for himself, that could be why the Mashiah is called a "master", as it says (Malachi 3:1): ופתאם יבוא אל היכלו האדון אשר אתם מבקשים.
      • Also, the verse אם בגפו יבא בגפו יצא hints to the gemara (Yevamot 63b) that Ben David will not come until all the souls are finished from the גוף.
        • And Rashi explains on בגפו that his wife whom he begets the souls.
        • Also, "בגפו" is gematria the name of Hashem how it's written and read, which symbolizes Yihud.
    • Freedom of an Eved Ivri/Kena'ani
      • Also, the Midrash (Pesikta Rabbati 8) says that the Redemption has the aspect of the freeing of an Eved Ivri.
        • And the Hizkuni says similarly that the 6 years of an Eved Ivri hints to the 6 nations that subjugated Israel: Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia, Media, Greece, and Rome.  Afterwards, comes freedom.
      • ובשבעת יצא לחפשי חנם is the letters of בתשע"ו.
        • R' Menahem Barhoum adds that ובשבעת is the gematria of ה'תשע"ה, which is a year of Shevi'it.
        • Also, the Sofei Teivot of the verse כי תקנה עבד עברי שש שנים יעבד ובשביעית יצא has the gematria of תשע"ה.
        • Also, עבד is the gematria of 76.
      • R' S. Reiskin adds that the Redemption will be with the Sod of the freeing of a slave, who goes free with שן ועין [knocking out of a tooth or eye].  Since Am Yisrael suffered much suffering in exile, which has the aspect of the knocking out of a tooth and eye, therefore, our freedom will come in the years that begin with ש"ע.  And even though only a non-Jewish slave goes free when his tooth or eye are knocked out and not a Jewish slave, nevertheless, Am Yisrael in our long exile have the aspect of a non-Jewish slave whose servitude lasts for a lengthy period.
        • R' Avraham Feldman adds that ש"ן עי"ן has the gematria of a certain notorious female destructive angel, which is the worst Kelipa, and in the merit of תלמוד (Talmud), which equals the same gematria, we will be redeemed from it.
        • Also, the verse (Shemot 21:26) וכי יכה איש את עין עבדו או את עין אמתו ושחתה לחפשי ישלחנו תחת עינו - when using 700 for the ן - equals 5775.
    • [Rav Fish writes more about this interesting connection.  ע"ש]
  • Le'olam Va'ed
    • The famous Midrash talks about how Yaakov Avinu wanted to reveal the Ketz, but the Shechina left him and he was worried about a Pesul in his lineage.  His sons reassured him by reciting the Shema, whereby he said: Baruch Shem Kevod Malchuto Le'olam Va'ed.
      • It appears that Yaakov Avinu hinted to them about the Redemption even by saying בשכמל"ו, as this hints to the time of Redemption when the Kingdom of Hashem will be revealed forever.
      • Therefore, מלכותו לעולם ועד with the words and letters and Kollel is the gematria of 776 (see Ben Yehoyada on Hagiga 13b that these words hint to the Redemption).
    • R' Yaakov Matar adds that the word לעולם can equal 776 if we value the letter ם as both 40 and 600 (as the Ketonet Tashbetz on Midrash Peliah on Pinhas and the Tzafenat Pa'ane'ah on the verse Vayihan Sham Yisrael have done previously). 
    • Also, תשע"ו is the gematria of עבר הוה עתיד (past, present, future) with the words and Kollel.  This tells us that that year is a year that has the aspect of being atemporal.
      • Also, גאלה שלמה משיח with the words and Kollel is the gematria of תשע"ו.

What name did the Israelites (after the Torah was given) use when referring to G-d?

When they read the Torah aloud, what name did they use for the Tetragrammaton i.e. how old is our custom of using the names "Hashem" in daily parlance and A-d-n-i when lehning from the Torah?
