Geula Update From Rav Fish - Behar/Behukotai and Bemidbar 5773

From Rav Fish's last week and this week rolled into one:
  • Poverty Before Geula
    • Really, there is an explicit contradiction within Haza"l regarding poverty on the eve of Redemption, as [although we previously mentioned many sources that prove that there will be poverty right before Redemption,] we found in other sources that just the opposite - there will come great plenty to Torah scholars before the Redemption, as is mentioned in the gemara (Sanhedrin 97a, Derech Eretz chapter 10, and elsewhere):
      The rabbis taught: the year in which Ben David comes, the first year ... The fourth year, plenty and not plenty.  The fifth year, great plenty when they will eat, drink, and be merry, and Torah will return to its learners.  The sixth year, sounds.  The seventh year, wars.  After the seventh year, Ben David comes.
    • To reconcile the difficulty, it appears that the decree of poverty for Torah scholars comes from HKB"H in order to awaken them to request David their king, and to truly - from the depth of one's soul - expect salvation and Redemption.  And the main thing is to connect to the inner parts of the Redemption by way of learning the inner parts of the Torah, everyone according to their abilities.  And those Torah scholars who do these things on their own, there is no need to awaken them for this.  For them, Haza"l expounded that they will merit great plenty before the Redemption since they are already connected to the light of the Redemption, and one who is connected begins to be redeemed.  And the others who are not connected as much as Hashem expects of them, the purpose of poverty will be to awaken them to this idea in order that they merit the Redemption with mercy.  
      • To further explain this, when a person desires something and he's able to taste it, if he tastes it, this is a clear sign that he indeed did desire it.  The main point of the Redemption and its purpose is learning Sod as is explained in the Gr"a and in many books.  Those who desire for the physical influences of the Redemption in order to fill their desires, the Redemption has not touched them yet at all.  And even those who desire for the Beit Hamikdash and the fulfillment of Mitzvot and for the Resurrection of the Dead, this is not the main point.  The main point is Torah learning, which is equivalent to all the rest of the Mitzvot.  And the main point of the main point is the Redemption of the Shechina, which is dependant on learning the inner parts of the Torah, as is brought down in the Zohar.  However, those who don't even try to taste and to connect show that they don't desire the main point of the Redemption.  The greater the tasting, the greater the desire.  And the matter is simple.
  • The Satmar Rebbe ZT"L's Joke
    • [YY - Please note: I don't agree with the Satmar Rebbe's views here.]
    • The Satmar Rebbe said jokingly when the State of Israel was established on Friday of Parshat Emor 5 Iyar, 5708 that the State is hinted to with the verses that apply to The blasphemer, and that is the root of the State of Israel.  This Perasha comes after all the holidays in the Perasha.  And just like the Torah mentioned hints to the Rabbinic holidays - the Perasha of the oil hints to Hanukka and the Perasha of baking the show-bread hints to the Purim meal - so too, right afterwards comes the Perasha of the blasphemer to hint to the "holiday" of the new state.  He also adds that this Perasha is the only one in the Torah that איש הישראלי is mentioned.
    • Rama"z has some hints from this Perasha to what is happening today:
      • וַיֵּצֵא, בֶּן-אִשָּׁה יִשְׂרְאֵלִית, וְהוּא בֶּן-אִישׁ מִצְרִי
        • Rashei Teivot בנימין נתניהו
        • Rashei Teivot נפתלי בנט
        • Lapid is the son of his notorious father
        • ליבני has בן in the middle
        • בן is the gematria of הליבה
      • בְּתוֹךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל
        • Rashei Teivot בנט נתניהו יאיר
      • וַיִּנָּצוּ בַּמַּחֲנֶה בֶּן הַיִּשְׂרְאֵלִית, וְאִישׁ הַיִּשְׂרְאֵלִי
        • Letters of ציון - the Kelipa
      • וַיִּקֹּב בֶּן-הָאִשָּׁה הַיִּשְׂרְאֵלִית אֶת-הַשֵּׁם, וַיְקַלֵּל, וַיָּבִיאוּ אֹתוֹ, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה
        • Targum is ופרש - Rashei Teivot of Rav Shai Piron
      • וְשֵׁם אִמּוֹ שְׁלֹמִית בַּת-דִּבְרִי לְמַטֵּה-דָן
        • The whole issue of the core curriculum stared with the Dovrat Commission, headed by Shlomo Dovrat שלמה דברת.
        • Also, Yair Lapid's mother's name is שולמית.
      • וַיַּנִּיחֻהוּ, בַּמִּשְׁמָר
        • They guarded this in the offices of the government
      • לִפְרֹשׁ לָהֶם, עַל-פִּי ה'
        • Again, Rashei Teivot of Rav Shai Piron
      • כגר כאזרח
      • וּמַכֵּה נֶפֶשׁ-בְּהֵמָה
        • Gematria of בן
        • Gematria of הליב"ה
        • Hints to "B.A.", "H.A.", and "M.A."
        • The Zohar calls the Erev Rav "Beheima"
      • יְשַׁלְּמֶנָּה
        • Trying to persuade with bribes (שלמונים)
      • מִשְׁפַּט אֶחָד יִהְיֶה לָכֶם
        • Courthouses
      • כַּגֵּר כָּאֶזְרָח יִהְיֶה
        • Equality of service
    • יאיר can be an expression of cursing, like the blasphemer
    • The Perasha of the blasphemer concludes Parshat Emor, which has 124 verses, like the gematria of לפיד [Lapid].
  • More on the government of heresy
    • לברמן is the letters מר לבן.
    • לפיד is the gematria of נגע [plus the Kollel].
    • The word מינות hints to מינוס [deficit], as we see that once he started to antagonize Torah learners, he had a deficit.  And instead of introspection to further help Torah, they are cutting more from Torah learners in order to cut the deficit, and they don't understand that by doing so, they are causing the deficit to increase a lot more, Hashem should have mercy.
    • יאיר לפיד is the gematria of פירון.
  • Supreme Court Building
    • [After discussing עמלק having the gematria of רם,] R' Tzion David Siboni adds: the architects who designed the Israeli Supreme Court Building are named רם כרמי and his sister עדה.  The mother of Eliphaz, the father of Amalek, was Adah.
    • בג"ץ is the gematria of המן.
  • The Raham
    • [After bringing down the gemara in Hulin 63a that says that when the Raham will sit on the ground and hiss, Mashiah will immediately come, R' Yehoshua Bismut added that it's a non-kosher bird, hinting to the Redemption coming from the Kelipot.  He then adds:] The word רחם hints to the word רחם - womb - from which Mashiah was born, which has some leftover from the side of bad [רע], as is brought down in Sha'ar Hahakdamot by the Ariza"l (p. 132).  He says that pregnancy has the aspect of "bad" since it filters the good from the bad.  Birth is the exiting of good from the bad.  The baby symbolizes the good part that is filtered from the bad part, which is why pregnancy has 270 - רע - days.  Also, pregnancy itself - הריון - is the gematria of רע.  It's also brought down in the Otzerot Hayim by the Ariza"l (Orot Nitzotzot Vecheilim, chapter 2) that pregnancy symbolizes the filtering of the 288 sparks that fell into the "bad".  And the birth of Mashiah symbolizes the end of the filtering of the sparks, which is why it has the Sod of birth.
    • Also, the Raham is called הרחמה [with 4 Kametzes in a row] in Parshat Re'eh (Devarim 14:17), and the entire word has vowels of Kametz, which symbolizes the Sefira of Keter - Keter Malchut, with the Sod of עטרה שביסוד הנוקבה, which is from where the fetus departs.
  • More about ערב
    • The difference between the gematria of עבר [the past, and the letters of ערב, equaling 272] and the gematria of עתיד [the future, equaling 484] is the gematria of זהר [Zohar, equaling 212] because the Zohar connects between the past of the exile, which ends at the time of ערב, to the future of the Redemption.
  • Those who are not worthy still get to inherit Eretz Yisrael
    • It's brought down in וענתה השירה by Rav Nahmani ZT"L that the verses (Tehillim 69:36-37) כִּי אֱלֹהִים, יוֹשִׁיעַ צִיּוֹן, וְיִבְנֶה, עָרֵי יְהוּדָה;    וְיָשְׁבוּ שָׁם, וִירֵשׁוּהָ.  וְזֶרַע עֲבָדָיו, יִנְחָלוּהָ;    וְאֹהֲבֵי שְׁמוֹ, יִשְׁכְּנוּ-בָהּ [For God will save Zion, and build the cities of Judah; and they shall abide there, and have it in possession.  The seed also of His servants shall inherit it; and they that love His name shall dwell therein.]  The order is that first (from verse 36) everyone - even the wicked - get to inherit it.  And afterwards, (from verse 37) only the righteous will inherit it.
    • It's similarly brought down in צדקת הצדיק that before the Redemption, there will be Jews like the Ma'pilim in the Exodus who will try to capture the Land of Israel before its time.  And he inferred from the general rules of expounding of Haza"l that the Ma'pilim at the time of Moshe will not be successful, but the Ma'pilim during the Final Redemption will succeed.  Here are his words (in אות מו):
      They presumed to go up even against Hashem's will, and they didn't succeed in this because the time was not yet ripe, which was why Moshe told them, "It shall not prosper."  It appears that it was a piece of advice, but it will not prosper.  And we can infer using the word "והיא" - "and it", where in many places Haza"l expound that to mean, "It, but not others," meaning that there will be another time that it will succeed, and that is in our time, during the footsteps of Mashiah, as Haza"l said that in the footsteps of Mashiah, Hutzpah will increase, that then will be the time for this.
  • Year gematrias
    • R' David Rosoff adds: ה'תשע"ג is the gematria of גאולה העתידה בדרך אהבה [the future Redemption in the path of love].
    • The Nusah of:
      וְהוּא יוֹשִׁיעֵנוּ וְיִגְאָלֵנוּ שֵׁנִית וְיַשְׁמִיעֵנוּ בְּרַחֲמָיו שֵׁנִית לְעֵינֵי כָּל חַי לֵאמֹר. הֵן גָּאַלְתִּי אֶתְכֶם אַחֲרִית כְּרֵאשִׁית לִהְיוֹת לָכֶם לאלֹהים
