Right Horn

A man who appeared to be wearing a tallit, a Jewish prayer shawl, was arrested Saturday after allegedly smashing the iconic Charging Bull statue in New York’s financial district.

Tevon Varlack of Dallas was arrested after allegedly damaging the bronze statue by repeatedly thwacking it with a banjo, ArtNet reported. Varlack was reportedly wearing a t-shirt with the words “Let Us Not Forget The Ten Commandments,” leading some to wonder whether the action had anything to do with Moses’s destruction of the Golden Calf statue in the Bible.


The bull was left with a hole in its right horn and several scratches.

Apparently, Charging Bull has been compared to the Eigel previously too.

We can also say that a bull represents the other nations, just as 70 bullocks are brought on Sukkot, representing the nations.

Pirkei DeRibbi Eliezer, chapter 31:
ר' חנניא בן דוסא אומר, אותו האיל שנברא בין השמשות לא יצא ממנו דבר לבטלה. אפרו של איל הוא יסוד על גבי המזבח הפנימי, גידי האיל אלו עשרה נבלים של כנור שהיה דוד מנגן בהם, עורו של איל הוא אזור מתניו של אליהו ז"ל, שנ' איש בעל שער וכו', קרניו של איל, של שמאל שתקע בו בהר סיני שנ' ויהי במשוך בקרן היובל, ושל ימין שהיא גדולה משל שמאל שהוא עתיד לתקוע בה לעתיד לבא, שנ' והיה ביום ההוא יתקע בשופר גדול והיה ה' למלך על כל הארץ.

Rabbi Chanina ben Dosa said: From that ram, which was created at the twilight, nothing came forth which was useless. The ashes of the ram were || the base which was upon the top of the inner altar. The sinews of the ram were the strings of the harp whereon David played. The ram's skin was the girdle (around) the loins of Elijah, may he be remembered for good, as it is said, "And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins" (2 Kings 1:8). The horn of the ram of the left side (was the one) wherein He blew upon Mount Sinai, as it is said, "And it shall come to pass, that when the ram's horn soundeth long" (Josh. 6:5). (The horn) of the right side, which is larger than that of the left, is destined in the future to be sounded in the world that is to come, as it is said, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great trumpet shall be blown" (Isa. 27:13); and it is said, "And the Lord shall be king over all the earth" (Zech. 14:9).
And this occurred during Elul, when we blow the shofar to remember the ram of Yitzhak.

I don't advocate people doing any defacing themselves, but once it occurred, may the defacing of the other nations' right horn foretell the upcoming blowing of the ram of Yitzhak's right horn, which will herald in the Redemption, Amen.

Your blog is mostly nice, but I try to directly avoid linking to Meshichist sites as they espouse a philosophy that I am vehemently opposed to. (I did allow the comment above though.) Don't bother asking why or arguing with me about it either. I likely will not publish any comments in which you do. I do wish you much hatzlaha in publishing non-meshichist posts.
