Shiurim on Mashiah - The Person

Dixie Yid has been bringing you many shiurim from "Reb Yerachmiel" on the blessings we say for the Amida.

I had linked to one of his shiurim before, when starting the blessing of תקע בשופר.

He recently gave a great summary shiur on the Beracha that concludes with בונה ירושלים. Dixie Yid posted it here.

(Even though the text of the blessing is quite different for Sepharadim, only a small part of the shiur was not applicable for Sepharadim, such as the "vav" for Velirushalayim.)

Now, he is starting the next blessing of את צמח דוד. Here is the first shiur on the subject of Mashiah the person. Brought to you via Dixie Yid.

Update: Part 2 here via this Dixie Yid post.

Update: Part 3 here via this Dixie Yid post.

Yaak, is it not logical that haShem will decide and advise us, similar to that of Moshe. Signs from the heavens. Also, he must remain hidden, for his own protection. As if he was revealed to the wrong crowd, he may very well be stopped, or G-d forbid, worse.

I've been pulling these shiurim off the Dixie Yid site for months now and they are just awesome! If you're a Yid longing for Moshiach, then all of Reb Yerachmiel's shiurim on Velerushalayim and Es Tzemach are for you!!!

Yaak, maybe you can answer this. If a person was asked by a Rav that when he arrived in Israel, upon stepping on the tarmack, he was to judge Esav. Just simple words of judgement. Then the next evening there would be a thundering which would sound like a base drum beating. It would then occur the next day (same day actually according to our system) twice, once on har Bental and once in the Galilee (not far from Rosh Pina), the same sound. It would occur on a perfectly clear day. Other Orthodox Jews would ask the person who uttered the judgement if the person could hear the strange thundering. Witnessed by Rabbanim from several Orthodox branches. Then the person would go to Safed, clouds would roll in, rain, and they would roll back out.

From your studies, does this have the apperance of anything important? Or is this a clue to the Erev Rav to be a hinderance.

I hope you take the time to answer this. It's rather important.

This is not for me to respond to. Maybe though - this site can help you further your understanding -

Achdut Achshav!

Listen, Hashem moves thru our daily lives via 'nature', so why not Moshiach? He could already be in Eretz HaKodesh, working somewhere, even in the govt., but only when Hashem indicates to him that the time is NOW, and I will even say that 'nature' will be 'excited' also when that time comes, because there is no place without Hashem, the sun, moon, stars and all that we view as earth and nature will be excited when the time comes.

Shiloh, I'm not trying to ignore you - I just simply don't understand your questions. They're either going over my head or under my feet - I'm not sure which.
Please restate them. Thanks.

Yaak, he is saying that these things happened, and he thinks they have messianic significance, and is asking if you would agree or not.

גילוי , just significance is my question (it was witnessed by only Orthodox Jews). Neshama, that is what I was getting at, nature got exited per say. Why is my question. Now, there is more, but that is enough and if anyone can point me atleast where to find a source. There may not be, as I could not find a source of it, but many clues.

The Baal Shem Tov states that the rabbanim will delay the geulah. This stuff is over 7 years ago. Every delay is for the best, but is it.

The delay in the geulah happened before the events in question. It is no longer possible to delay Moshiach's arrival, nor was it in the last 10 years.

I'm not so sure that your (seeming) equation of Rosh Pinah as the Galil mentioned in the Zohar is accurate. The idea in the Zohar is that it is the land of Yosef. The portion of Yosef is not that far north, as far as I can see.

Dixie Yid has a new shiur on Moshiach posted today. Though you might be interested.

Actually, it was not Rosh Pina, sorry. It was a now tourist attraction north of Rosh Pina, at a location of a first century Synagogue. Also there was a theatre in the round that showed the famous story of the rabbis and the oven. Maybe that rings a bell. The first thundering occured in Jerusalem, the second Har Bental, and the third at that site I listed.

Correct, the train is rolling and cannot be stopped.

So you see the point that this is not the mentioned Galil.

I think it is rather odd. You seem to be certain of the messianic significance, but you are asking for others to give you the proof texts to give it legitimacy.

גילוי I had not mentioned anything messianic about it. It was only yourself. Legitimacy is not required as I along with many others have been aware of this taking place, it's kosher according to some very knowledgeable rabbis. I am just curious if the delay is man-made (as per Baal Shem Tov) or haShem is delaying. Maybe a little of both. From the little I know, the big war of Gogumagog must start before anything else would be revealed. Shabbat Shalom

Thanks - yes, I'm on top of it - just haven't gotten to updating this post yet. Thanks for the reminder.
