Geula Update from Rav Fish - Ki Tisa 5774

I'm just going to do a high-level summary of Rav Fish's latest:

The Pope - Doves Incident

He interprets the incident exactly the opposite of how I interpreted it, but it is definitely interesting.  He said that the doves represent Xtianity, while the seagull and crow represent the Davidic Dynasty.  He goes on at length (more than 4 pages!) to support this idea.

The Beit Hamikdash in 5786 Continued

He continues his theme from last week that the Beit Hamikdash will be built in 5786 as the second stage of the Geula.  He brought a very interesting Gr"a (brought down in Lev Eliyahu, Beshalah) that says that the 28 "times" that are mentioned in Kohelet chapter 3 correspond to the 28 time periods from Creation until the year 6000.  If you divide 6000 by 28, you get approximately 214.3 years.  See the table below:

The Gross Family Tragedy and other Tragedies

The tragedy is eerily similar to the deaths of Nadav and Avihu, where Elazar and Itamar survived despite Aharon's sin with the eigel.  He says that just like Nadav and Avihu's death atoned for all of Israel, so did the death of the Gross girls.

[He also mentions something I also saw a couple weeks ago on Kikar that] the tragedies of a few weeks ago are all connected to the letter "ג".  The gas (גז) tragedy, where Gilit (גלית) Tofan passed away in the Gilo (גילה) neighborhood.  The next day Rav Yaakov Galinsky (גלינסקי) passed away.  Also that day was when the Gross (גרוס) family tragedy occurred in the Givat Mordechai (גבעת מרדכי) neighborhood.  Rav Fish adds that all these are connected to the end of Galut (גלות) and hint to the time of Geula (גאולה).

[YY - I will add that Kikar reports that Yeshivat Hevron of Givat Mordechai has been hit with a spate of tragedies lately:

yy, correct me if i am wrong, but are not the crow and seagull non kosher birds. so how do they refer to the davidic line. my google could not translate the laadat site. thanks.

Yes, they are nonkosher birds. Nevertheless, he uses a Zohar to show that that the verse about Noah sending the raven (crow) is referring to King David at the time of exile - before Teshuva is done.

With the seagull, he uses Remez and gematrias of the word שחף. One that struck me is that "שחף עורב" (the 2 birds that attacked the doves) equals 666, which hints to MBY who fights Edom (and also happens to be a number that Xtians despise).

The gra explains what each period is. Don't recall where gra is,but it not a division of equal amounts of time.
