Does this Parashah hold a hidden Message and Caring Directive from HaShem to all mankind including the Jewish Religion contained in the ‘Personal Distancing’ which the Corona Plague has forced onto all Mankind?
We have raised some questions on our various Face book Pages in regard to an intimate “Groom vs. Bride” relationship between God and His People. The response was amazing and, compared with the normal rate of response that FB pages receive, this could be termed as ‘going viral’. Hundreds of responses were unleashed – BUT, the ignorance and the resistance against the idea of a Divinely driven intimate relationship between God and His People was clear. People were simply hung up with their own religious cultural background – and was quite immovable from there.
With yet another 7th week of repetition, one has to seriously consider why would this Message be repeated in the Sacred Writings of the prophets if it were not true?
This is week 50 of the Biblical Calendar year. At the end of the 2nd week from now we arrive at Rosh HaShanah (‘head of the year’, also known as ‘Feast of Trumpets’). Metaphorically, this could be the Day sometime in the future that HaShem shall return His Presence to imbue His living Tabernacle fully and in Glory , that ‘Servant’ whom He has been preparing to serve as a Light unto the Nations. Our Haftarah this week, Ki Tavo (‘come in’) from Isa. 60, is all about this Final Event at the Time of Final Redemption. It echoes the first entry into the Land after the Exodus from Egypt, this Time the Finale, the 2nd Exodus, from captivity in ‘spiritual Egypt’ amongst all the nations of the World. The 3 weeks of Biblical Festivities following Rosh HaShanah are all about the End Time Final Redemption, i.e. in sequence, Judgment Day, Reward to the overcomers, Marriage Festival as HaShem receives back and re-covenants with His estranged Bride whom He had sent into exile and the start of the Shabbatical Millennium – the establishment of His Eternal Kingdom over which He shall rule through ‘His Servant’ that He will have perfected under a New Covenant.
The festive Period of Succot depicts the Great Marriage Celebration of HaShem with His restored Bride – the re-united and restored Israel. This Marriage promises to perfect the Marriage which was initiated at Sinai with His 12-Tribed Kingdom Nation. The first Marriage fell on the rocks, resulting in His Divorce from the 10-Tribed House of Israel and the exile for more than 2000 years of both Houses of Israel. It also caused the departure of the Shechinah (Presence) of HaShem from His People and Land. This week’s Parashah Ki Teitzei (‘When you go forth’) which deals with the Torah law restrictions on Divorce – that devastating breakup of the Sacred Marriage – raises some awesome considerations about the Coming Marriage. This Renewed Marriage has to bridge this Divorce and the way in which HaShem will do it places an awesome yet demanding opportunity before His professing followers.
The past week has heralded the Peace announcements between Israel and its former Arab enemy, Saudi Arabia and more such Peace deals are on the cards already. This is another barrier which is falling to make way for the Final Redemption (Geulah). Together with the exciting signs of the progress in the Return of the Lost House of 10-Israel, it serves as confirmation of the approaching Geulah. Read a Rabbinic commentary on this week’s Haftarah of Softim about the Joy of the dawning Redemption which now should replace the mourning for the unbeatable burdens of the past history of Israel…
Why did this question go viral in a recent Facebook-Posting:
“YOU ARE A Jew? What would you do if you realized that HaShem wants the Jews to accept millions of LOST Ten Tribers back into the Land?”
While human interpretation of the Future and of Biblical Prophecy is bound to failure, there are indeed glaring indisputable historic and actual trends that confirm Biblical Predictions and which should serve as indicators to the Future. Most importantly, the broad outlines of these trends confirm the existence of the Creator God Who is true to His Word and Promises.
Our Parashat commentary this week emphasizes a great comforting Torah confirmation of the awesome potential that the concluding End Time Final Redemption Event holds not only for His Elect Nation (the major portion of whom are still in exile and even ignorant of their True Identity as remnants of ancient Israel) but for all mankind who choose to consider.
Rabbi Benjamin Blech in an article that we feature here below, finds great encouragement between “The Tragedy of Tisha B’av and the Redemption of Pesach” (15 Nissan). Victory, jubilation and eternal Joy follows the 6000 years of eventful and often tragic human history on this planet. Can this be why a few days after Tishah B’Av, on the 15th of Av, there is a much hidden Day of celebration. Indeed, the 15th of Av cannot but be a mystery. it is the festival of the future Redemption, and thus a day whose essence, by definition, is unknowable to our unredeemed selves. And the Talmud considers this the greatest festival of the year, with Yom Kippur (!) a close second!”

Israel has been one of the foremost leading countries in fighting the Corona plague successfully. The first lockdown was released prematurely and somewhat hurriedly. Within weeks the pandemic turned around showing its scary reality and we now face far higher numbers of infections. So, the lockdown and the infection is back with a vengeance. Can it be that the eventual fall out of Corona and the financial after effects will turn so horrid that a masse universal Repentance and recognition of the Creator God of Israel will be called on for Help? The foundations of Judaism have been shaken over the last few weeks through internet onslaughts against Talmudic Judaism which went viral here in Israel.
