Geula Update from Rav Fish - Aharei Mot/Kedoshim 5775
From Rav Fish's latest (from last week):
- Recent Deaths
- I heard that the Rashei Teivot of the names of the Gedolei Yisrael who passed away on Pesah [Rav Shmuel שמואל Wosner and Rav Chaim חיים Greineman] and the 2 Avreichim [who were crushed at the funeral on Pesah:] Mordechai מרדכי Gerber and Yitzchak יצחק Samet spells out משיח.
- Rav Greineman ZT"L is known for his expertise in medical matters of Halacha.
- It's amazing that he lived on Rav Asi Street as אסיא in Aramaic means "cure".
- He was born in ה'תרפ"ו, which is the letters for תרופה [medicine] or הפותר [the solver of problems].
- גריי in Yiddish [and English] is the color gray, which in Hebrew is אפור, which is the same letters as רופא [doctor].
- The remaining letters of his name נימן hint to מינון [dosage of medicine].
- Also, the terror attack after Pesah, where Shalom Yohai Sharki HY"D was run over [by a car driven by an Arab], is hinted to in the words of the gemara Hullin 63a (Daf | Text | English):
Rab Judah said: Ka'ath is the sea crow, raham the sherakrak [vulture]. R. Johanan said: Why is it called raham? Because when the raham comes mercy [rahamim] comes to the world. R. Bibi b. Abaye said, provided it perches upon something and cries ‘sherak-rak’. There is a tradition that if it settles upon the ground and hisses, the Messiah will come at once, for it is said: I will hiss for them and gather them.
- That is, that through his passing, he drew mercy and peace to the whistling of the coming of Mashiah.
- Also, his name Yohai hints to Ribbi Shimon Bar Yohai, who sweetens the days of the Omer, when he was murdered.
- Also, the names of his parents Rav Uri Shlit"a and Ronit SheTihyeh hint to the אור ורינת [light and song] of the Redemption.
- Also, the name of the boy Benayahu Shukron Z"L who was run over that same week in Beit El hints to שריקה [whistling, hissing].
- More on שריקה
- Sefer Yetzira says: מ' דוממת ש' שורקת and the Gr"a explains how the letter Shin is the father of the whistling letters.
- Also, whistling is done by placing 2 finger in one's mouth, plus the tongue, creating a letter Shin.
- It's also brought down in the Sefer Hanikud by R' Yosef Jikitilya that the verse אֶשְׁרְקָה לָהֶם וַאֲקַבְּצֵם, כִּי פְדִיתִים [I will hiss for them, and gather them, for I have redeemed them] teaches us that when the Shuruk stays in Malchut, then the exiles will be ingathered, but only if it says up, but during the Destruction of the Beit Hamikdash, when the Shuruk is separated from the Hirik, the Beit Hamikdash was destroyed and the Jewish people went into exile.
- And the Or Hahayim brings down, "Corresponding to the Future Redemption, with Hashem's help it should be in our days, it says וְלַשֹּׂרֵקָה, meaning at the time that Hashem will whistle, as it says אֶשְׁרְקָה לָהֶם וַאֲקַבְּצֵם.
- Also, the gemara Berachot 57a "If one sees a Soreika in one's dream, he should expect Mashiah." Rav Yaakov Emden writes that we can also use the verse אֶשְׁרְקָה לָהֶם וַאֲקַבְּצֵם.
- Gematrias and Stuff
- Zohar Hadash, No'ah: "If the heads of the synagogues (כנישתא) or one synagogue (כנישתא) does Teshuva, in their merit, all of the exile will ingather." R' Tzion David Siboni adds that the word כנישתא is gematria ה'תשע"ה.
- R' A. Tovi adds that the expected belligerents in the Gog Umagog War are Barack Obama and Ali Khamenei. בראק אובאמה עלי חאמינאי is the gematria of מלחמת גוג ומגוג.
- Midrash Rabba at the end of Shemini compares the שפן (hare or hyrax) to Persia, and R' Michael Harel explains because it says טמא הוא לכם and טמא is the same letters as אטם (atomic).
- R' Y.S. Tzur adds that פצצת אטום [atomic bomb] is gematria 716, and the 716th verse from the beginning of the Torah is וַיַּעַל מִשָּׁם, בְּאֵר שָׁבַע [And he went up from thence to Beer-sheba], hinting to the atomic bombs that are manufactured in Dimona, close to Beersheva.
- Torah code of גאלה בעתה and התשע"ה with משיח twice.
