Rabbi Raymond Sultan – Of the Sephardic Heritage Museum shows a video recently while on Har He’Zetim (The Mount of Olives) overlooking the Temple Mount and revealing the four letters of one of the many names of Hashem currently forming from the natural growth of foliage on the wall surrounding the Temple Mount. The signs of Moshiach coming are growing!
Rabbi Yom Tov Glazer – Shares the various different signs that appear in the times leading up to coming of Moshiach (the Messiah). One of the years given as potential for Him to come is Motse Shvi’i) – the year after the Sabbatical year. This was filmed in the time lead up to the previous Sabbatical year and coincidentally we are now 7 years later in present time just a couple months into this Motse Shvi’i.
Rabbi Mendel Kessin – In this Audio shiur (class), Rabbi Kessin details how powerful a Jew is spiritually and the huge responsibility that this implies.
Personal Thoughts – I thought the power of being Jewish was being part of the “chosen people” – being educated, being part of a long line of professional successes, etc. These are great accomplishments but not the reason or goal of being a Jew. According to the Torah and our Sages the ultimate goals are: tikun olam (fixing the World), helping bring G-d’s presence into this World, bringing the World closer to G-d, and infusing the spiritual into the physical. These will help bring about the World and our own personal redemption. Sounds like a big scary goal to say the least but it’s certainly different than what I used to strive for and seems much more important.
Rabbi David Yisrael Kalmus – Shows us what we can do today to help bring Moshiach (the Messiah). Each of us carries a spark of Moshiach inside of us – to unlock that spark we simply have to transform our anger to empathy.
Personal Thoughts – Sometimes I look towards complicated ways to solve my personal problems and other problems as well. Rabbi Kalmus shows us such a simple approach on how to bring one of most important revelations this World will ever know. Simplicity is best!
