Geula Update from Rav Fish - Tzav 5775
(See also his long essay on President Barack Obama that came out this week, much of which is a compilation of previous things he has said about him, which I will not be translating, but is definitely interesting. He used this material for a shiur he gave over at Kever David on Erev Rosh Hodesh.)
From Rav Fish's latest:
- The 26th of Iyar - Yesod Shebayesod and 70th Hebrew-calendar VE-day
- R' A. Ben Eliyahu adds that the tradition from the Hafetz Hayim that 70 years must pass from the end of the Holocaust until WWIII comes out on 26 Iyar, 5775, which is when the period of MBY ends and the period of MBD begins, since the Holocaust was over on 25 Iyar, 5705.
- 7 Sassoon Children, ע"ה
- [YY - some of this was already mentioned earlier]
- Their combined ages equals 67.
- And on Rosh Hodesh Nissan, which is Rosh Hashana LiMlachim, thre is a point of unification with the month of Adar (which has the aspect of Yesod as it is the sixth month from Tishri) and the month of Nissan (which has the aspect of Malchut as it is the seventh month from Tishri). The connection of the numbers 6 and 7 symbolize Yesod and Malchut.
- Sassoon is similar to Sasson, which symbolizes Yesod
- The Zohar (Balak 212b) says this almost explicitly.
- The gemara (Megilla 16b) says that ששון refers to Berit Mila, which has the aspect of Yesod.
- Pardes Rimonim says that ששון comes from the word שש (the number 6), which symbolizes Yesod.
- They are related to Rav Ovadia Yosef ZT"L, who was [a candidate for] MBY, who joined Yesod and Malchut.
- R' Michael Harel adds that the Rashei Teivot of their names is gematria of משיח בן יוסף.
- Other attacks and tragedies during Parshat Vayikra
- Also, in 5772, which was a year of the beginning of the Ketz process according to the Zohar, in those first days of the month of Nissan, in the same Perasha of Vayikra which talks about sacrifices that atone for Am Yisrael, a fire occurred in the home of the Shaer family in Rehovot, wherein R"L a father and 5 children were burned.
- And that same week, there was a terrorist attack in Toulouse, France where R' Yonatan Sandlar and his 2 sons, Gavriel and Aryeh, and a girl Miriam Hannah Monsonego HY"D were murdered.
- R' No'am Ya'akobi adds that the Merkaz Harav Massacre also occurred on Friday of Parshat Vayikra - on Rosh Hodesh Adar Bet in 5768, which was also a Shemitta year.
- Also, the Fogel massacre in Itamar was on Shabbat Parshat Vayikra in 5771, where a father, mother and 3 of their children HY"D were murdered.
- The common denominator of all these tragedies is that children - Tinokot Shel Beit Rabban - were killed Al Kiddush Hashem during Parshat Vayikra, which is the Perasha that deals with sacrifices.
- The tragedies occurred to those from Yerushalayim (ירושלים) who moved to Brooklyn, those from Rehovot (רחובות), those from Itamar (איתמר), and with the students of Yeshivat Merkaz Harav Kook (קוק), which is Rashei Teivot of Vayikra (ויקרא).
- Other Miscellaneous Info
- Also, Nadav and Avihu were burned Al Kiddush Hashem on Rosh Hodesh Nissan, and the Torah says: כָּל-בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל--יִבְכּוּ אֶת-הַשְּׂרֵפָה, אֲשֶׁר שָׂרַף יְהוָה [the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled] since they were public sacrifices.
- R' M. P. adds that the fire broke out from a Shabbat hot plate (in Hebrew: פלטה) in Flatbush (פלאט - בוש) to hint that their deaths are an atonement for המחנה הנשאר לפלטה [the camp that remains to escape].
- This is like Yosef, who symbolizes Yesod, said לָשׂוּם לָכֶם שְׁאֵרִית בָּאָרֶץ, וּלְהַחֲיוֹת לָכֶם, לִפְלֵיטָה גְּדֹלָה [to give you a remnant on the earth, and to save you alive for a great deliverance].
- Also, ראש חדש ניסן is Sofei Teivot ששן [Sassoon].
- Also, אלף ניסן is gematria אפר [ashes].
- R' S. Reiskin adds that the names of the surviving mother and daughter - Gila and Tzipora - Hashem should heal them - hint to the revelation [גלוי] of Mashiah soon from the heavenly sanctuary called "Kan Tzipor".
- 5775 and 5776
- R' Yosef Marciano adds: The first time the word "Mashiah" is written in the Torah (Vayikra 4:3) הַכֹּהֵן הַמָּשִׁיחַ hints to 5775 as it's saying that in the year ה'כהן, Mashiah will come. And ה'כהן equals 5775 if we use the ן as both 50 and 700 (as is used in the Ketonet Tashbetz on Sefer Peli'ah).
- The verse וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים אֶל-הַנָּחָשׁ, כִּי עָשִׂיתָ זֹּאת, אָרוּר אַתָּה מִכָּל-הַבְּהֵמָה, וּמִכֹּל חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה; עַל-גְּחֹנְךָ תֵלֵךְ, וְעָפָר תֹּאכַל כָּל-יְמֵי חַיֶּיךָ [And the LORD God said unto the serpent: 'Because thou hast done this, cursed art thou from among all cattle, and from among all beasts of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.] is the 5776th verse in the Torah when counting from end to beginning. This hints that we will merit Redemption and the snake will be cursed forever.
- Yalkut Shimoni 562 says תיפח רוחן של מחשבי קצין. If you add the gematria of that phrase to the gematria of the Milui of that phrase (ת"ו יו"ד פ"א ח"ת רי"ש וא"ו ח"ת נו"ן שי"ן למ"ד מ"מ ח"ת שי"ן ב"ת יו"ד קו"ף צד"י יו"ד נו"ן) plus the Kollel, you get 5775.
- That is, you you need to be מפיח [swell up] and fill these letters in order to know the Ketz.
- R' Moshe Tzuriel adds that if we write תפח without a י, the phrase תפח רוחן של מחשבי קצין equals 1692, which is the gematria of חמש שבע שבע שש, i.e. 5776.
- Also, the wording of the Rambam on the time of the coming of Mashiah in chapter 12 of
Hilchot Melachim: וכל אלו הדברים וכיוצא בהן לא ידע אדם איך יהיו plus the words is the gematria of 776.
- R' Moshe Tzuriel adds that שנת הוי"ה [the year of Hashem] equals 776.
