Message to Am Yisrael

The author of this message is anonymous, but Rav Fish included it as a special edition of his Sod Hahashmal newsletter this week.  Briefly summarized by myself (see the Hebrew source to get a better understanding of this message), he states the following:


When the 3 teenagers were kidnapped in Sivan-Tamuz 5774, a great rabbi performed a Goral Hagr"a to find out which sin caused this terrible tragedy to befall us.  The answer that came back was the following verse (Hoshe'a 4:6):

ו  נִדְמוּ עַמִּי, מִבְּלִי הַדָּעַת:  כִּי-אַתָּה הַדַּעַת מָאַסְתָּ, ואמאסאך (וְאֶמְאָסְךָ) מִכַּהֵן לִי, וַתִּשְׁכַּח תּוֹרַת אֱלֹהֶיךָ, אֶשְׁכַּח בָּנֶיךָ גַּם-אָנִי.6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to Me; seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children.

meaning that when we forget the Torah, our children will R"L be forgotten.

Which children?  אשכח בניך גם אני.  The words גם אני are Rashei Teivot for:
  • גלעד מיכאל (Shaer)
  • איל (Yifrach)
  • נפתלי יעקב (Fraenkel)
This was publicized at the time and again 2 years later and again today.  It is republicized today for 3 reasons:
  1. Le'ilui Nishmatam (as an uplifting of their souls) since their Yahrtzeit is around this time
  2. Since we need to repent for all the Torah forgotten even more today than we did then.  We forgot:
    1. that Hashem created us for His honor - not our own honor.  We need to minimize our own honor and increase Hashem's honor.
    2. that we are all children of the Avot and Imahot and we need to go in their path and be unified
    3. that we need to be a light unto the nations
    4. how a Jewish woman is supposed to dress
    5. how a Jewish man behaves with holiness, with guarding one's eyes, Torah learning, and proper Middot
    6. that we are in exile and we need to be seeking the Kingdom of Heaven, the kingdom of the house of David, and the Beit Hamikdash
    7. that we need to distance ourselves from the nations since our #1 enemy is assimilation
    8. that we are responsible one of another 
  3. To encourage protesting the To'eiva Parades going on in Israel.  
    1. Consider the history:
      1. A large To'eiva parade took place the day the boys were kidnapped.  (YY - Note my list of links that day has a lot of links about the kidnapping along with one link about the parade.)
      2. A To'eiva parade took place in Yerushalayim hours before Baba Elazar ZT"Lwas murdered in 5771 (YY - see also a couple of the comments made on this post).  Rav Aryeh Shechter Shlit"a comforted the Abuhatzeira family at the time.  When he saw Rav David Abuhatzeira Shlit"a, he asked him whether the murder was related to the parade.  Rav David Abuhatzeira answered, "Without a doubt - without a doubt."
      3. A To'eiva parade took place on Iyar 26, 5776 in Tel Aviv and not 5 days later, a terrorist attack that killed 4 and injured 3 took place in the same city.
    2. Besides the numerous spiritual reasons one should protest, there are many non-spiritual reasons one should protest as well.  Among them, these parades promote lifestyles that:
      1. minimize births
      2. produce diseases
      3. promote assimilation
      4. cause the Jewish nation to be despised among values-driven people around the world
      5. show the world that we have no values of our own and that we need to copy the rest of the world
      6. encourage Arabs to terrorize us, seeing that we don't keep the Torah anyways, as a similar case occurred when an Arab started a whole Intifada when seeing a Jew eating Hametz on Pesah
      7. encourages the Iranians to threaten us more when they see a valueless society
      8. cause other abnormal behavior among today's youth and others
      9. cause a societal rift 
    3. Protesting against these parades is part of being a quintessential Jew - as we know that the Jewish nation stands alone - to fight upstream and against the current.
Again, those who read Hebrew can get a more detailed version of this message.  

May we all heed this message.

Hm. Mayhaps it is being read in the wrong context?

Amen! Amen! Thank you so much for bringing it to our attention.

Speaking of "we are all children of the Avot and Imahot and we need to go in their path"...

See Hebron Hail.

I agree with this 100%. It's why I've been writing so much about "the one new man" plot to assimilate Jews out of existence and why I started the series "Basic Concepts" of authentic Judaism as its antidote.

It's always difficult to find information about the Jerusalem Parade for obvious reasons. Currently, it appears to be set for July 21, 2018 ("date to be confirmed").

THAT IS TISHA B'AV!!! (Fast deferred.)

Source of info.

It is so sad in our time that one has to be careful about who is a man, who is a woman, who is a real Rabbi, who is a real Jew, and who is really living a Torah true life, whether one looks religious or not. It’s such a MIXED UP world. It doesn’t surprise me that the earth and waters are rebelling.

So, the latest information available is that the Jerusalem parade will be sometime in August - definite date still not announced. But the "pride season" starts today in Tel Aviv.

See here.

There is not much from this comment that would lead me to conclude that you are either of the 2 descriptions of your alias.
