Please note: calculations made in this post is pure conjecture based on Torah sources.  There is no basis for saying that things MUST occur this way.

The verse associated early on with the coronavirus by many Torah thinkers is this one:

כ  לֵךְ עַמִּי בֹּא בַחֲדָרֶיךָ, וּסְגֹר דלתיך (דְּלָתְךָ) בַּעֲדֶךָ; חֲבִי כִמְעַט-רֶגַע, עַד-יעבור- (יַעֲבָר-) זָעַם.20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee; hide thyself for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

Note the word זעם - indignation or anger.  The virus is a manifestation of Hashem's anger.

A verse in Daniel tells us what occurs at the end of the "זעם":

יט  וַיֹּאמֶר הִנְנִי מוֹדִיעֲךָ, אֵת אֲשֶׁר-יִהְיֶה בְּאַחֲרִית הַזָּעַם:  כִּי, לְמוֹעֵד קֵץ.19 And he said: 'Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the latter time of the indignation; for it belongeth to the appointed time of the end.

So the "Za'am" can refer to the coronavirus period specifically, but can also be referring to our entire period of Galut Edom generally.  Perhaps, the end of one is the end of the other.

Note also the last 3 words: כי למועד קץ.  The angel Gavriel was telling Daniel: The end is a Mo'ed.

The Hurban of Bayit Sheni occurred in 3828.  We are now in 5781.  That means that there have been 1953 years since the Hurban or, at least, we are in the 1953rd year.

Let's look at the first time the word "מועד" without any prefixes is found in the Torah.  Shemot (9:5):

ה  וַיָּשֶׂם יְהוָה, מוֹעֵד לֵאמֹר:  מָחָר, יַעֲשֶׂה יְהוָה הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה--בָּאָרֶץ.5 And the LORD appointed a set time, saying: 'Tomorrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land.'

A number of points with this verse:
  • This verse is talking about the plague of דבר (pestilence).  Dever is also associated with a human plague.
  • It's unclear why Hashem needed to appoint a Mo'ed (set time).  He could have just said that it will occur tomorrow.  Can it be referring to a different Mo'ed that Hashem needed to appoint?
  • מחר means tomorrow, but also has a connotation of a future event.  Perhaps, way in the future.
  • The word הדבר is unnecessary.  It could have just said מחר יעשה ה' זה בארץ.  It is interesting that it is the same letters as "Dever".
  • The word הדבר can be related to כי קרוב הדבר אליך מאד from Parashat Nitzavim.  There are various interpretations on what הדבר there means, but based on a Midrash, there is reason to believe that it refers to the coming of Mashiah.
  • And, last but not least, the gematria of this verse is 1953.
ז  וָאֶשְׁמַע אֶת-הָאִישׁ לְבוּשׁ הַבַּדִּים, אֲשֶׁר מִמַּעַל לְמֵימֵי הַיְאֹר, וַיָּרֶם יְמִינוֹ וּשְׂמֹאלוֹ אֶל-הַשָּׁמַיִם, וַיִּשָּׁבַע בְּחֵי הָעוֹלָם:  כִּי לְמוֹעֵד מוֹעֲדִים וָחֵצִי, וּכְכַלּוֹת נַפֵּץ יַד-עַם-קֹדֶשׁ--תִּכְלֶינָה כָל-אֵלֶּה.7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he lifted up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by Him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when they have made an end of breaking in pieces the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

So, we have the Mo'ed number, which is the number of years from the time of the Hurban.  Now, let's look at how many days to count.   Since we are in the 1953rd year, we start counting from the day after Tish'a Be'av.  But how many days?

If one looks for the first time the word מועדים is found in the Torah, it is found in Bereishit 1:14:

יד  וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יְהִי מְאֹרֹת בִּרְקִיעַ הַשָּׁמַיִם, לְהַבְדִּיל, בֵּין הַיּוֹם וּבֵין הַלָּיְלָה; וְהָיוּ לְאֹתֹת וּלְמוֹעֲדִים, וּלְיָמִים וְשָׁנִים.14 And God said: 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years;

The word ולמועדים is the 173rd word in the Torah.  

There is a hint that the word after ולמועדים is ולימים, hinting that the מועדים should be counted as days.

Counting 173 days from the day after Tish'a Be'av (which fell out on July 31st, 2020), we get to January 20, 2021.

וחצי tells us that it's Hatzot-time of the day, which falls a few minutes away from noon.

First of all, that seems to be around the time that the first large group of high-risk individuals will be receiving the second dose of a coronavirus vaccine.  

By the end of December, Perna said Operation Warp Speed expects to have about 40 million doses of the two vaccines available for distribution. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines both require two doses given between 21 and 28 days apart.
So, it's a good candidate for the end of the Za'am.

Also, anyone know something else scheduled for January 20th, 2021 at noon?

The Inauguration of the President of the United States! (Whoever it may be.)

I can see it now on CNN:

"We interrupt the Inauguration of the President to bring you incredible late-breaking developments in the Middle East..."

The verse in the Torah associated with coronavirus is Number 5780--the year the virus broke out and left people feeling hopeless and feeling befuddled as to how to treat it. That verse is Devarim 32:28, the last verse in Revii in Haazinu: "Ki Goy Ovad Eitzos Heima, V'Ein Bahem Tevunah." The trop under the word Goy is a Tevir, which means broken--broken economies and broken lives. The next verse (5781, our year) tells people to think carefully about what happened and think about their end--do teshuva before it's too late: Loo Chachmu Yaskilu Zos, YaVinu L'Achareesam. The next verse (5782) describes in incredible detail outgrowths of coronavirus, such as governmental persecutions (fines), social distancing, and lockdowns both for goyim and Jews in Eretz Yisrael: Eichah Yirdof Echad Elef U'Shnayim Yaneeso Revavah, Im Lo Ki Tzuram Micharam VaHashem HISGIRAMA. The trop on the word Eicha is Gershayiim, which means driven out--goyim were driven out of their social places and Jews were driven out of their batei knessios and batei midrashos.

Beautiful symmetry Yaakov. I read the article about the “blogger” Yeranen Yaakov and his “prediction”
I hope you are not indicating that JB will usher in the climax of history? How can a presidency of evil and morally corrupt people do this? Please explain.

No, Neshama. My post never said Biden will do that. Rather, it said that January 20th is an auspicious time for it to happen - no matter who takes the oath that day.

That article uses JB in the title. Might this affect how people understand where you are holding?

People need to always read the source.
