The 5775 Hope for Geula - Part 1

We are coming up to the year 5775, and I think it would be a good idea to review the relevant statements by the great rabbis of the past and present who connected this year with our coming Redemption.

Of course, I must clarify for the public that no year is a definite year and certainly no date is a definite date.  The following is a compilation of what makes the year 5775 an auspicious one for the Final Redemption and what makes it a special year.  One should continue to expect the Geula every day no matter what happens.

Thanks to A.K. and A.M. for their ideas for this post.

The Zohar mentions a sad, bitter sound that will be sounded in the End of Days at the daylight hours when the sun is shining from the 6th day - in the year that Yovel and Shemita come together, which is 274 from the 6th day.  The year 5775 is exactly 274 years from the beginning of daylight hours, which started in the year 5501.  Also, 5775 is a Shemita year, and there is a theoretical calculation made by Gilui that would make 5776 a Yovel year (see the explanation here).

(With Rav Fish's explanation - see here) The Ariza"l takes Shemot 38:28 (וְאֶת-הָאֶלֶף וּשְׁבַע הַמֵּאוֹת, וַחֲמִשָּׁה וְשִׁבְעִים, עָשָׂה וָוִים, לָעַמּוּדִים) and applies the "one thousand" in that verse to the exile of the fifth millennium.  He also explains that the sixth millennium (which is the Sod of Vavei Ha'amudim) is mixed with good and evil.  The implication is that at the year 775 of the sixth millennium, the good will separate from the evil to make a filtered world.

  • 3) The Ba'al Hatanya
As I translated here:
I heard from my grandfather, the pious, famous Rav Yehuda Aryeh Leib Tziviak ZT"L, who told over when he was living in Warsaw that he heard from the elders - the Hasidim of the Rasha"b - ZY"A, who told over about a Hasid who received an Aliya to the Torah by the rabbi, the Ba'al Hatanya ZY"A on Parshat Pekudei, and the rabbi was reading the Torah. When he reached the verse וְאֶת-הָאֶלֶף וּשְׁבַע הַמֵּאוֹת, וַחֲמִשָּׁה וְשִׁבְעִים, עָשָׂה וָוִים, לָעַמּוּדִים [And of the thousand seven hundred seventy and five shekels he made hooks for the pillars], he heard from the holy rabbi that he said in a whisper that the year [5]775 is the time that the coming of Mashiah will quickly be revealed. And afterwards, the Hasid related [to the rabbi] what he had heard from the rabbi's holy mouth. And when the Ba'al Hatanya heard this, he was insistant in the matter [and was not happy that this matter got revealed] and the other man did not finish the year [alive].
The Konanta Me'az continues (my translation):
And the year that the holy rabbi the Ba'al Hatanya talked about was the year 5775.  And this is hinted to when they say, "טהורה לתשעה חדשים וכנגדה באילן זית" [lit. "For a large animal, if it is Kosher, its gestation is for 9 months, and similar to it is the olive tree"], that means that the world will be purified from the impurity of exile in the year תשע"ה 5775 - and similar to the olive tree - as it says "And His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives".  That is our righteous Mashiah, who will stand on the Mt. of Olives and resurrect the dead, speedily in our days, Amen Selah.

    • 3b) R' Leibel Groner - Story with the Ba'al Hatanya #2
The following comes from the Hezbos blog (also found this story here)
A discussion is brewing online within the Groner family, שיחי''ו (Rabbi Leibel Groner was one of the Rebbe's secretaries).

The story is that the Alter Rebbe was once reading from Pekudei 38:28, which mentions the sum of 1775 talents collected.

ואת האלף ושבע המאות וחמשה ושבעים

Instead of reading the "hei" of "ha-elef" (the thousand) with a "patach", he read it with a "tzeirei" (which turns the letter "hei" into 5).

When the Alter Rebbe read it as “5775” his Gabbai corrected him. The Alter Rebbe then said again “5775”, to which the Gabbai once again corrected him. This repeated itself 4 times. Thereafter the Alter Rebbe went into deep meditation. When he quit his meditation he opened his eyes and whispered to the Gabbai that “5775” had something to do with the coming of Moshiach.

Rabbi Groner verifies the authenticity of the Rebbe previously revealing this story to at least one of his secretaries.

It is believed this story's source comes from an as yet unknown "Polish" sefer.

    •  3c) Rav Yosef Berger - Story with the Ba'al Hatanya #3 (my translation):
The Ba'al Hatanya ZY"A once entered his Beit Midrash and saw one of his students learning in Parshat Pekudei the verse וְאֶת הָאֶלֶף וּשְׁבַע הַמֵּאוֹת וַחֲמִשָּׁה וְשִׁבְעִים עָשָׂה וָוִים לָעַמּוּדִים וְצִפָּה רָאשֵׁיהֶם וְחִשַּׁק אֹתָם.  The Ba'al Hatanya lifted his voice and said, "Oy!  When will we merit this already!  When will we see this already!"

The student of the Ba'al Hatanya ... understood that his rabbi didn't mean the 1775 pieces of silver, but had something more important in mind.  He thought and thought and didn't understand until it was sparked in his mind that his rabbi, the Ba'al Hatanya, meant the time of the Keitz, the end of the exile, and the Complete Redemption with the coming of Mashiah.

How is this possible?

... ואת ה-אלף means 5000 years.  ושבעה מאות וחמשה ושבעים means the year 5775 - the 775th year of the 6th millennium from Creation.  Then, we will merit that there will be ווים לעמודים for the Mishkan of Hashem.

And on this, the Ba'al Hatanya groaned, "When will we merit this already..."  Will we merit to see the moment of Redemption?  Will we see the coming of Mashiah in the year 5775?!

The Ba'al Hatanya himself writes that the verse ואת האלף should be used to calculate the Keitz.  He uses the calculation to mean the year 5603, which is 1775 years from the Destruction of the Beit Hamikdash.  One may think that this calculation should be used to undermine the use of all the stories of the Ba'al Hatanya to mean this year.  Not so.   He calculates it to mean the year 5603 because he used 172 years of exile from the 4th millennium in the calculation.  However, if we start the calculation from the beginning of the 5th millennium, which start the 2000 years of ימות המשיח, as per the gemara on the bottom of Sanhedrin 97a, it comes out to 5775.

  • 4) The 278 Shemitot
I [=Rav Fish] heard from Rav Yosef Morsiano Shlit"a, based on what is brought down in Targum Yonatan on Shemot 12:40 that every Shemita is called "שנה" [lit. year] and every year is called "יום" [lit. day]. And if we calculate from the time of the Destruction of the Second Beit Hamikdash in the year 3828 until the Shemita year of 5719, there were 270 Shemitot, which hint to the 270 days of pregnancy which correspond to exile. And the year after the Shemita year of 5726 - in 5727 was the Day of Birth. Therefore, it was a Time of Acceptance of Prayers with the Six Day War. However, we had not yet been redeemed at that time since we need to add another 7 Shemitot to complete the 8 days until the Berit Mila, at which time we will connect to Hashem completely in the Sod of Redemption. And this comes out to the year 5775, when on Motza'ei Shevi'it, Ben David comes.
Or the alternative explanation:
R' R. Z. explains [it a little differently - ] that we should calculate from the time of the second Beit Hamikdash that was destroyed in 3828 until Shemita of 5726 and there are 271 Shemitot, which is the gematria of הריון [meaning pregnancy, a very famous gematria mentioned by the gemara Nidah 38b] that corresponds to exile. And Motza'ei Shemitta - in 5727 - corresponds to the day of birth. And from then begins the next 7 Shemitot, corresponding to the first 7 days of the boy, culminating in 5775, upon which it says וטמאה שבעת ימים, and Motza'ei Shevi'it of 5775 [5776] corresponds to the 8th day, when the Orla will be circumcized and Mashiah Ben David will come, speedily in our days Amen.

nice, and thanks. I should point out that the "Yovel years" 5678 and 5727 were more than theoretical. At the beginning of 5678 (end of the year 1917 ce), the Balfour Declaration was issued allowing the Jews to return to their land in a legal context which was later codified at the San Remo Conference after WW1. 5727, 49 years later, was the time that we returned to Yehudah, Shomron, and all of Yerushalayim because of the 6 Day War which is the essential theme of Yovel after all. And per Gilui's spreadsheet which sets the Yovel cycles of the 2nd Temple period at 50 years and the post Churban Yovel cycles at 49 years, 5776 is the 48th Yovel year since Ezra HaSofer, or the beginning of the malkhut that is in malkhut or 49th Yovel cycle.

There is a mushmad Jew who happens to be a kohen selling millions of books to Xtians mentioning this in his latest book about Shmittah. I think he became a mushmad to sell millions of books.

And there are so many other salient points, but there is one point that hits the nail on the head of Emeth. We learn from Parshat Balak and Bilaam (since Parshat Balak is at least as much about Bilaam as it is about Balak) that there is one way to bring a nation to Mem Tet Sha'arei Tumah in the fastest possible way: random and public acts of Zenut. And the Zenut that can do this can even be with women who are not Eishet Ish, the wife of another man. This is interesting since relations with a single women out of wedlock is not one of the cardinal sexual sins. Yet, it has more of a potential than anything to set up the fall of a nation or nations more quickly than any other set of circumstances. So when did the Western World with the US leading the way allow itself to engage in random acts of sex in the middle of the park in full view of others? 1967 (5727), the same summer as the 6 Day War! The Umot HaOlam in Edom even have a name for that summer, The Summer of Love. Following the logical procession of being mekabel tumah over the course of 49 years, Malkhut Edom reaches the Mem Tet level of tumah during the Summer of 5775, probably when at least half of the states in the US are granting ketubot to homosexuals through marriage contracts and Civil Unions. It becomes irredeemable and reprobate by the Fall of 5776 and therefore must be replaced by another malkhut so that the entire world will not be destroyed by Fire (instead of water since we have been promised that the entire world will never again be destroyed by water). We also learn from the 7th hakafah on Hoshana Rabba that the method of judgement in this fateful Shmittah year will be Fire.

Finally, speaking of Bilaam and Balak we should see this reflected in the names of the last Presidents of the US who became leaders in large part because the nation that they lead is in its spiritual death throes because of the Summer of Love so many years ago. So let us remove Magog: Gog HW Bush Sr and Gog ben Gog: Gog W or U Bush Jr. Who is left? Bill Clinton and Obamanation. In the names Bilaam and Balak we see what they have in common a Bet and a Lamed. There you get the name Bill for Bill Clinton. And the letters that they don't have in common: an Ayin, a Mem, and a Qof. If we take one of the lameds away from Bilaam or Balak, we get Bavel from the letters that we have in common and Amaleq from the remaining letters. So if Bill Clinton somehow represented Bavel during his 8 year term, who do you think represents Amaleq? Now Obama may not be from the seed of Amaleq, but he carries a monkey god (hanuman) around in his pocket from his days in Jakarta, Indonesia. From Rav Akiva Tatz: Who is Amaleq? the one who toils like a monkey (Amal Qof). Watch out, or get out.

Anon.: We are not just speaking about Sukkot 5775. This year of judgement will continue until and through Sukkot 5776 too. As a matter of fact, It will most likely reach its climax where the Shmittah year 5775 and the potential Yovel year 5776 meet.

Also be careful at shopping malls, baseball games, and other public venues now that ISIS will want revenge. Start to think like Israelis. Seudat Shlishit is important, but you must take practical steps.

Dov bar Leib, WOD, what happened with the world war you predicted that was supposed to happen according to you in Syria and what happened with all (4, 5?) the times you told us we were in the 9 months ? The Chabad Rebbe, R' Schneerson M.M. was right!

At Wed Sep 17, 05:50:00 AM 2014, Blogger Dov Bar-Leib said...

Correct, the nine months here in Eretz Yisrael may have already happened b'Rachamim. That would be the nine months of negotiations with the PA under the guidance of the Ba'al Kerry which ended one month prematurely at the end of Adar 5774. There were three out of four scheduled murderous prisoner releases of 26 murderers each indicating that HaShem was acting b'Rachamim (HaShem's Name= 26 is His Name of Rachamim) instead of b'Din. During the ninth month itself all of the Ba'al Kerry's plans fell apart as he said before Congress, "like poof!" Releasing those 3x 26= 78 murderers was like murdering their victims all over again, but at least it was not 78 new victims.

According to Devorah from Sydney at ShiratDevorah, Sharon's death on the tenth of Shevat 5774 may have been the beginning of the 9 months b'Din for us in Eretz Yisrael. The gematriah of Elokim, G-d's Name of Din, is 86. Ariel Sharon was one month short of his 86th birthday when he died. I am not sure if the number 86 came up 5x during the recent Gaza War. It needs to be checked out. Yet, since Sharon is the Foolish Shepherd from Zecharia 13 who dies before 2/3rds of Mankind perishes, it made sense that the 9 months b'Din may have begun at that time to end during Tishrei of 5775. 266 days from the 10th of Shevat in a leap year takes us until Yom Kippur, and 271 days, the gematriah of Herayon, takes us until Sukkot. We shall see, but that was not my "prediction". That was her insight, based on statements about Sharon made by Rav Kaduri zt"l based on Zech. 13. If the yearlong Judgement on the nations begins in earnest over the next month, then perhaps she was correct.

The nine month period starting in Av of 5772 along with the Syrian conflict that is hinted at in the Zohar VaYeira 119 never materialized at that time. It was Achishena since it was in the middle of the Shmittah cycle instead of at the end of the cycle which is right now. Yet, again there were many bloggers talking about it at the time including right here. For whatever reason it is coming to the fore NOW, two years later when the war in the 7th year is b'itah because we are on the verge of year 7. The US just started this week to bomb ISIS in Syria while warning Assad to stay out. So the US is now supporting the so-called Free Syrians against Assad and ISIS: a three way balagan. The next step might be a retaliatory strike on a "soft target" by ISIS or Al Qaeda Iraq. That would be logical. Just be careful.

from same Anon.4:20:

D.B Leib, you will see, everything will be like the Chabad Rebbe (novi!) predicted, it will all happen b'rachamim, a certainty. Be positive. Since we're now even closer to the end of galut, this is an additional reason of why it will be b'rachamim.Be careful what you say or write cuz words from a Torah scholar many times materialize. Be positive an dtrust the Rebbe. "By trust alone an evil decree may be instantly cancelled"! (Torah)
Also, the time of din is for the goyim. All the yidden will be saved = geula, yetziat mitzrayim.

There is definitely evil out there and it is picking up speed. Just today a branch of Al-Zawari's Al Qeida is claiming responsibility in Asia for hijacking of a Pakistani ship. They piloted the ship over in the Arabian Sea and attempted to blow up/shoot at a fleet of US military vessels.
There is bravado and there is chutzpah with brazenness and focus on one's agenda. THIS is that focused chutzpadik agenda.
We need a true leader under
Hashem's command and guidance now more than ever.

Lucky is he who doesn't feel a need to watch the news but keeps his head in torah, tehillim and has bitachon shelema in Hashem.

If Hashem is not going to smack the goyim now then when ?! b) Do you really believe that Hashem will smack these nazis of goyim together with a yid, the victim ?? The time of din is for the goyim. Dont worry for them, they never worried for us, so dont worry for them. We only need Hashem.
