The Rebbe’s first person account of Yud Beis Tammuz by skesselman

The Rebbe’s first person account of Yud Beis Tammuz by skesselman New unprecedented audio timeline brings you the Rebbe’s own accounting of the miraculous events of Yud Beis Tammuz. In 5716, at the Farbrengen in the Frierdiker Rebbe’s apartment before the main Yud Beis Tammuz Farbrengen, R’ Zalman Duchman proclaimed “If not for the Rebbe’s efforts, we would not be celebrating a Chag Hageulah now!”, and began detailing the Rebbe’s involvement in the Frierdiker Rebbe’s release from jail. The Rebbe motioned for him to step down, and much of the Rebbe’s involvement remains unknown.  On another occasion, while discussing different types of miracles that occur, the Rebbe refers to “the wonders and miracles of Yud Beis and Yud Gimmel Tammuz, which our very own eyes saw”. A new unprecedented project from ashreinu.app gathers the story of Yud Beis – Yud Gimmel Tammuz as recounted by the Rebbe throughout the years, and presents the account on an interactive audio timeline.  From the moment spies infiltrated the Friediker Rebbe’s home on a Yechidus night, leading to his arrest and original sentencing, through the ensuing events and intervention of Chassidim and ministers on all levels securing his eventual miraculous release, listen as the Rebbe tells over the story, and relive the miraculous events.  Listen here. In addition to the new audio timeline, there are 10 restored Yud Beis Tammuz Farbrengens on Ashreinu, 6 of which have been recently restored. תשט”ז* תש”כ* תשכ”א* תשכ”ג* תשכ”ד תשכ”ה* תשכ”ו תשכ”ז* תש”ל תשל”א * Recently restored לא אותי בלבד גאל הקב”ה בי”ב בתמוז, כי אם גם את כל מחבבי תורתנו הקדושה, שומרי מצווה, וגם את אשר בשם ישראל יכונה skesselman | July 3, 2020 at 1:04 pm | Categories: Ashreinu, News | URL: https://wp.me/pay9gc-295

Rebbe Mystical Insights (quote form) Vayietzie

Rebbe Maamar Vayietzie 5722
Just as in a close combat, when each soldier tries to control and pin the other, similarly the time of prayer is the time of war, when we meditate on God’s greatness in a way that our animal soul can understand (which is the purpose of prayer – hence converting his desire to the love and awe of God.)

In addition to the meditation that inspires even the animal soul, there is the miracle of Torah study (for as it shines such a great light, the animal soul’s desires are quelled.)

Now the explanations that allow the animal soul to transform are the level of Nara”n but when one prays on the level of Chaya (desire – as the soul’s desire dominates, then the animal soul’s doesn’t.)

However the ultimate is to reach the level of Yechidah.

Even one whose Godly soul is weak or concealed, when they have meditations revealing their Yechidah, all their (animal) issues dissipate.

The Jewish Israeli Rosa Parks

The Jewish Israeli Rosa Parks

2d ago

On December 1, 1955, a black seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama refused to give up her seat at the front of the bus for a white man. In those days, segregation, the law that kept races apart, ruled the land. While black people were allowed on public transportation, they had to cede their seats in the front of the bus to white people. On that day 64 years ago, Rosa Parks was defiant and would not cater to the indecent law. Riots ensued, but ultimately, in 1964, the United States passed the Civil Rights Act which desegregated society.

Eight years earlier, on November 29, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly voted to partition the remaining portion of the British Mandate of Palestine (the land east of the Jordan River had previously been handed to the Hashemite Kingdom at the sole discretion of the British), into distinct Jewish and Arab states. While the vote was designed to create peace by separating the two peoples living in the land by establishing two clear majority-societies based on religion and culture, it still sought to allow the minority populations to live, pray and work in the majority-ruled lands. To minimize religious tension, the holy cities of Greater Jerusalem and Greater Bethlehem were voted to be placed under an international regime.

JIHADIS BURN KOSHER STORES — venitism

simply bless everyone we know once, twice and again

By the Grace of G-d
23 Elul, 5777

Dear Friend,

With so much disruption and displacement felt by so many – especially most recently in the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, here are some brief thoughts to consider, in addition to the charitable work we should all contribute to:

Let us turn our heads heavenward and, while thanking Him for sparing so much human life, beseech G-d to restore health and wellbeing to those who are suffering! Let us ask G-d for a Happy, Healthy and Sweet New Year for the entire universe ! Our High Holiday prayers, we are taught, have an extra…

Regardless of how we’ve been treated by others or how we’ve treated them; regardless of what we think of others’ views or what they think of ours; and irrespective of the many other modes of repentance we must each engage in now, let us each take a few minutes to simply bless everyone we know once, twice and again, in advance of the new year.

Why is this so important?

The Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, taught about the transformative effect the simple act of blessing one another has on our interpersonal relations, and on the entire universe. Our heartfelt blessings to each other have the power to elicit from G-d His deepest blessings to each of us individually, to all of us as one, and to the entirety of our universe. As Maimonides writes, one good deed has the potential to tip the balance of the entire world in the favor of merit and goodness!

Boy, could our world use this positive energy now. Let’s forge ahead and bring great blessing!

*

We would be remiss if we didn’t elaborate on another very poignant form of blessing, the one elicited by the holy act of charity. Giving our hard-earned funds to help others – in a sense giving our very selves to the other! – brings immense blessing into our own lives and the lives of our loved ones, and helps saturate the entire world with goodness and blessing.

Blessings and charity. A blessed mix, indeed.

Antisemitic politics knocking on the door of no. 10? – David Hirsh

How did we get into this situation? Last week we were faced with a choice. Theresa May promised a headlong attempt to alienate Britain from its friends, its markets and its talent, and to break up the democratic institutions which Europe built when it emerged from totalitarianism; and the other option was voting Labour, knowing […]

via If I had to sum up the Rebbe’s teachings it is five core truths: 1. Be caring 2. Don’t fear what others say ( as those who criticize are simply jealous) 3. If you wish to hear God, listen 4. Believe that Moshiach is truly around the corner ( for without hope we become depressed and when we are depressed we fall into any and all temptations 5.

Lag Ba’Omer, From The Top

http://notajungle.com/index.php/2017/05/14/lag-baomer-from-the-top/

 

La Ba’Omer is the best. I will explain this holiday to you. But it is a long story.

In the Beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.

Why he would do this is mysterious, and the matter cannot be easily adjudicated in a humble space like this. The best way to put it is that He desired to be in a new way. As He is unto Himself, but in Another place. He wished to demonstrate, to Himself, that He was as True in a false place or that all places were false in light of His truth or something. It took Him six days, and the sixth of these was Friday, and we call it the first of Tishrei, Rosh Hashana, head of the year. (We celebrate the sixth day because that is when man was created, and despite what anyone may tell you, the universe was created for him.)

However, some opinions say that man was, or could have been, or will be created on the First of Nissan — a spring month, halfway across the year from Tishrei, a time of rebirth and sprouting rather than withering and in-gathering. That the world could have been created on either says something about the world.

In any case, these two months have since then ever competed for the main focus of Jewish life. The fall season also includes Yom Kippur,

The fall season also includes Yom Kippur, day of atonement, and Sukkot, the festival of ingathering and joy, and Simchat Torah, when the yearly Torah cycle ends and begins again, for all eternity. The fall season is one half of the dance between man and G-d. It is the part when man tallies his deeds, considers his distance from the Creator, and attempts to make amends. Our motion toward the creator takes the shape, like all things born, of a pregnancy. The relationship is established on Rosh Hashana, when we convince G-d the project of creation is worth continuing. The consummation is on Yom Kippur, when we are as angels in a moment of sublime unity with the creator. The child grows through its time in the Sukkot booth, the seed becoming differentiated and fully-formed, and its birth-culmination is on Simchat Torah.

Haifa fires die down, many others break out – #Israelfires

Anne's Opinions

The devastating wildfires in Haifa appear to have died down, and now one can see the level of damage caused to the city:

However other fires were still smouldering when Shabbat began, and over Shabbat more destructive fires broke out or were deliberately set, particularly in the towns of Bet Meir and Neveh Tzuf-Halamish.

Firefighters tackle the ferocious blaze at Nataf in the Judean Hills Firefighters tackle the ferocious blaze at Nataf in the Jerusalem Hills

According to security forces, after the initial fires, arsonists “jumped on the bandwagon“:

Amid signs that the wave of wildfires that have blight Israel since Tuesday was being brought under control, Israeli security officials on Saturday night gave preliminary indications that weather was the prime cause of the initial blazes but that arsonists jumped on the bandwagon increasingly from Wednesday and into the weekend.
