    Forty-nine times the Bible mentions a perfect, pure blue, a color so magnificent and transcendent that it was all but impossible to describe. Yet, for most of the last 2,000 years, nobody has known exactly what biblical blue called tekhelet in Hebrew actually looked like or how it could be re-created. At the time of the Second Temple, which towered above Jerusalem until it was destroyed by the Romans, a blue dye of the same name was used to color the fabric used in the clothing of the high priests. Jewish men are still commanded to use a...

    The Hebrew word for brother, ach, is spelled alef chet: אח alef = 1; chet = 8 A parallel appears in the octave of a musical scale. The 1st and the 8th are the same note, the 8th being one level higher. C4 and C5. An octave is comprised of 7 differently named notes, but is not complete (resolved) unless the 8th is included (played). In the fixed-do system, do re mi fa sol la ti do are fixed names of the notes in the key of C. Here is a chart with the Hebrew names and their corresponding letters...

  • The Birth of Jesus and the Day of Trumpets... Jesus Born on September 11th

    09/10/2018 10:03:09 PM PDT · by Sontagged · 98 replies
    The historical evidence I have presented in this book shows that Jesus was born in the year 3 B.C.E. It appears most probable that a late summer birth in 3 B.C.E. has the best credentials. I need not rehearse my reasons for this, but they are very strong. Indeed, the evidence from the priestly courses alone suggests that a September nativity is the most likely. This gives a pretty close approximation that most scholars would probably accept as reasonable. But now, we come to the nitty-gritty! To propose an early evening birth on September 11, 3 B.C.E. appears almost impossible...

    Chabad, Bible, Misc. ^ | Sept. 8, 2018 | Various
    Why Isn’t G-d’s Name Mentioned in the Megillah?Compare the story of Purim with that of our other holidays. Ever notice how the plot features no open miracles? No seas split, no mass revelation, no dwelling in clouds for forty years, and no overcoming an enemy a hundred times our size using guerrilla warfare. What did happen? A lot of people were in the right place at the right time to provide just the political clout necessary when needed. What a coincidence. Of course, the word “coincidence” is not part of the Jewish lexicon. All these events were deliberately orchestrated...

    1. Moses received the Torah from Sinai and gave it over to Joshua. Joshua gave it over to the Elders, the Elders to the Prophets, and the Prophets gave it over to the Men of the Great Assembly. They [the Men of the Great Assembly] would always say these three things: Be cautious in judgement. Establish many pupils. And make a safety fence around the Torah. 2. Shimon the Righteous was among the last surviving members of the Great assembly. He would say: The world stands on three things: Torah, the service of G‑d, and deeds of kindness. 3. Antignos...

The Jewish Heart - The Secret of Elul>>>How is the image of the heart, as we most commonly know it, the symbol for this passionate experience of love? The month that we are now in, Elul, is the key to unlocking the inner and most potent meaning of the heart. As is well known, the Hebrew letters that make the word “Elul,” aleph, lamed, vav and lamed, are an acronym for the phrase (from the biblical Song of Songs) ani l’dodi v’dodi li, which means...

    BH We Cannot Remain Silent on Jerusalem Two events in 5752 (around Jan. 1992) compel everyone to speak up about what happened in Jerusalem last week. On the 3rd of Shvat the Lubavitcher Rebbe indirectly, but clearly, charged chasidim to go forth and speak in his name/say what needs to be said. 12 days later, on Tu BShvat, the Rebbe stopped Shamir's minister in a dollar line. Many prophetic things were said and indeed it led to the fall of a government and later a president arose and fell after not heeding the warnings, but what's relevant here is the...

    On the night of Friday, July 27th, the longest lunar eclipse of the century will appear in the heavens over Israel, with one rabbi labeling it an omen for Israel. Though it is remarkable in its longevity, lunar eclipses are not rare, occurring an average of three times each year. In its discussion of eclipses, the Talmud (Sukkot 29a) specifically described solar eclipses as being a bad omen for the nations. Indeed, the complete solar eclipse that transversed the continental United States last summer ushered in the most devastating hurricane season in US history. The same source in the Talmud...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | July 21, 2018 | Philip Cottraux
    Why God Brought Back the Feast of Tabernacles By Philip Cottraux Ezra and Nehemiah are twin books that cover the so-called Second Exodus. In 586 BC, Jerusalem was sieged by the Babylonian armies led by Nebuchadnezzar, who burned the city and razed the temple to the ground. Most Jews were taken as slaves into exile. Those that escaped fled into the desert and formed small nomadic communities. The Ark of the Covenant disappeared and was never seen again. But God had not fully abandoned them. Babylon eventually fell to the Medo-Persians, who were much more merciful to the captives. Seventy...

    The King Of The Arabs This article is a basic comparison between Jewish End of Day teachings and Christian eschatology. The difference between the two is their sources, Jewish End of Days is derived from the scriptures and Christian sources are largely based on a mistranslation and fiction, (See: 2nd Timothy 4:3, 4:4). Israel will say to the king of the Arabs, "Take silver and gold and leave the Temple." The king of the Arabs will say, "You have nothing to do with this Temple. However, if you want, choose a sacrifice as you did in the past, and we...

By every measure the Jewish month of Av is tragically unique, one in which the worst disasters in our history took place. Disaster is no stranger to us. In many ways it is part and parcel of God's covenant with Abraham. When Abraham was told that his people would be chosen, God told him that there would be a price to pay. What is that price? One look at Jewish history tells us two pieces of information that make us unique. One is that we don't disappear because we recognize that...

    First Baptist Dallas Pastor Robert Jeffress has denounced former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's accusation that he's a "religious bigot." "Robert Jeffress says 'you can't be saved by being a Jew,' and 'Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell.' He's said the same about Islam. Such a religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens the United States Embassy in Jerusalem," Romney tweeted on Sunday. In an interview with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs Monday night, Jeffress said he took issue with Romney's claims and asserted, "I am not a bigot." "Many of those comments [in...
