Ever since the start of Corona and its devastating effects on especially the ultra-religious Jewish communities across the Globe, we have delved into why Kosher observing Jews die in the same Plague caused by China’s total disregard for ’Biblically unclean foods’ in their dietary habits?
In his commentaries 2 and 3 years earlier, Rabbi Richman points out how similar situations arose in Biblical Times to be used by HaShem as a Caring Awakening Call to remind His People to cease from speaking evil against others and to reach out to each other in love and care. How much more if this refers to reaching out to those Lost and Captive souls of His Nation whom He wishes to return to their heritage, to become part of the ‘Living temple’ in whom He wishes to abode in order to live amongst His People and rule over the Universe? (Refer to “The Lost and Captive Child of Judah and Israel” – and “The Servant o G-d Whom He is preparing for a Light unto the World”).
Ultimately, the Final Redemption intends to bring Divine Benefits to all of humanity. How much more then the probability that Corona may be a Divine Call to all mankind to reach out to each other in caring consideration.
These commentaries confirm the conclusions that we have drawn in our News Letter Blogs over recent weeks: i.e., that it may well be that HaShem, through Corona and its harsh lashing out at even the core of Judaism’s faithful Torah observers, may well be the Tool that HaShem is using to bring both sides of the tragically 2700 yr long divided Family of the Nation of Israel, the two Houses of Israel, as well as the entire Torah opposing World on their knees, in total humiliation and the realization that they need to accept each other and to conform to the Will of the Creator.
There cannot possibly be a Final Redemption, a ‘Coming of a Messiah,’ until such reconciliation is brought about by the two sides themselves, accepting each other, to the Glory and fulfilment of His Purpose of His Creation.
Divine Awakening Call in ‘Personal Distancing’

The three Torah readings of Shemini, Tazria-Metzora, which form the heart of the book of Leviticus, which itself forms the heart of the Five Books of Moses, reveals a heightened spiritual consciousness, which emanates from the Shechinah – G-d’s Presence – which dwells within the Tabernacle/Holy Temple, and spreads forth throughout the land of Israel, lifting its inhabitants, their self-awareness, and, ultimately, their self-esteem and esteem for one another.
Does this Parashah hold a hidden Message and Caring Directive from HaShem to all humanity, including the Jewish Religion contained in the ‘Personal Distancing’ which the Corona Plague has forced onto all Mankind?
