  Please help interpret the passages
Posted by: andrewlya - 06-17-2021, 06:16 PM - Forum: Judaism General - Replies (5)

Shalom, I need some help understanding these passages,please.

how do you interpret this verse:
Genesis 18 1 YHWH appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day.2Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground.3He said, "If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord, [1] do not pass your servant by.'

Did YHWH Himself appear to Abraham or was it G-d's agent or representative? If it was an angel or YHWH's representative of some sort that appeared to Abraham and spoke to him does it mean the Sacred Name of YHWH can be applied to other beings, too in traditional Jewish belief? 

Genesis 19: 24 Then YHWH rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from YHWH out of the heavens.

Does it read as if there are two YHWHs in action? From Shema we know that there is One YHWH. I find it hard text to understand, can someone explain this?

Does traditional Jewish belief take the view that some being can also be called YHWH even though YHWH is ONE? 
Like an angel in the burning bush. 

I would much appreciate your clarifications on this,

  Atonement on Yom Kippur
Posted by: Duvduv - 06-15-2021, 10:32 PM - Forum: Judaism General - Replies (6)

I have not been able to find any to provide an adequate answer to this question. The Torah requires the kappara of Yom Kippur to include the service of the Kohen Gadol. This means that without the Beis Hamikdash there is no actual way to achieve the atonement for Yom Kippur, period. 
It cannot be claimed that mere prayer is sufficient for this annual atonement because that would be changing the halacha required by the Torah and is not found anywhere. Furthermore, it cannot be argued that mere prayer REPLACES the service of the Kohen Gadol because EVEN IN THE TIME of the Temple people engaged in prayer. Fasting cannot replace the service because fasting on Yom Kippur is a SEPARATE mitzvah that is not restricted to the Temple, but applies in all times.
I'd be interested in people's informed comments about this mystery.

Sad Jews of Iran and Arab World Are doomed
Posted by: Nooone - 06-13-2021, 11:29 AM - Forum: Judaism General - Replies (5)

With the rise of Arab nationialism [1 king/1 religion/1 country/1 people] and Islam fundelmentalism [a "pure" form without contamination by anything '"Western"] plus the assendency of Iran as the "Champanion" of  such valves......The Jews who stay in the arab/Muslin states from  Morroco to Afghistan from Sudan to Turkey are doomed,,,,,,such as happened to the anti-Jewish pograms  of Bagdad in 1941....I have no doubt that the Jewish Communites in the Persian Gulf such as Unites Arab Emerites, and Bahrain will be attacked...by Iran supported groups such as happened to the Jews of Yemem.....Galat Jews in Arab/Muslin states may hope that with their long residence in Galat, their insullarty  and their relations with the King/Shiek/President of their "galat" county will protect them...yet they have only three choices  to make...
For Life 1] They realize they are in danger and flee to Israel
For Life 2] The Prime Minister of Israel mounts a rescue mission and saves them..despite their wishes to stay in galat...
Doom   3] They refuse any rescue, stay and are destroyed...without mercy
 As long as the Jews of Iran refuse to go up They are already doomed. either way because.....
For when Iran launches Jihad against Israel..and WINS.....these rement will be destroyed in triumph
For when Iran launches Jihad against Israel..and LOSES.....these rement will be destroyed in revenge

  Israel new government

Here is an analysis of the new government in Israel, I thought that might be interesting. Sorry, it's a christian news channel, but there is no christian message here.


It's a little bit boring because there are many words... but yet informative.

  Pride and Arrogance
Posted by: Nooone - 06-12-2021, 11:23 AM - Forum: Judaism General - No Replies

I almost forgot to share this

6/5/2021 I recently wrote to Ask A rabbi chabad website with the following Query:Query is arrogance and pride the root of rebellion against the L-d?
Examples; A scholar studies Holy Texts for so long he forgets to live the spirit and the meaning of the texts and prides himself on how much he Knows... or an another example one of the first pacts between Abraham and the L-D was circumsision...indeed there is one story of a mother who took this to heart see /the story The-Nazi-Accomplice-in-the-Circumcision yet the Knesset had to produce a film defending circumscision because there is a movement to ban it in europe which would of course adversally effect the last living rements of European Jewry. Is it man arrogance to think he van overturn a decree of the L-d simply by oratory or Legislative fiat? How can a devout Jewish person prevent arrogance or pride from dominationg their lives?
6/10/2021 the reply


Great question.

Arrogance and pride are indeed considered an insurmountable obstacle to connecting with G-dliness, to which reason and logic are powerless to combat.

You rightly point out that even a Torah scholar is not immune to this problem, and in fact, can be quite susceptible to it.

Here are two different insightful articles that discuss this general issue and methods to combat it..

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

All the best,

Mendel Fogelman

  1938-1940 the Prophet for European Jewry....

Jabotinsky’s Lost Moment: June, 1940 - The Tower - The Tower

august 7, 1938 Jabotinsky to Polish Jews
It is for three years that I have been calling on you, Jews of Poland, the glory of world Jewry, with an appeal. I have been ceaselessly warning you that the catastrophe is coming closer. My hair has turned white and I have aged in these years, because my heart is bleeding, for you, dear brothers and sisters, do not see the volcano which will soon begin to spurt out the fire of destruction. I see a terrifying sight. The time is short in which one can still be saved. I know: you do not see, because you are bothered and rushing about with everyday worries … Listen to my remarks at the twelfth hour. For God’s sake: may each one save his life while there is still time. And time is short.

I want to say one more thing to you on this day of the Ninth of Av: Those who will succeed to escape from the catastrophe will merit a moment of great Jewish joy — the rebirth and rise of a Jewish State. I do not know if I will earn that. My son, yes! I believe in this just as I am sure that tomorrow morning the sun will shine once again. I believe in this with total faith.

Dec 7, 1938  Ben Gurion in the aftermath of Krystilnight Pogram {England offer to accept 10,000 Jewish Children in Germany to England]
If I knew it was possible to save all the children in Germany by taking them to England, and only half of the children by taking them to Eretz Israel, I would choose the second solution. For we must take into account not only the lives of these children but also the history of the people of Israel.” 

The Revionists did organize to try to help the Jews in Europe escape ---- in 1938-1942  {See William R Pearl The Four Front War listing of illegeal Jewish conyoys]
The Labor Zionists did organzine for to try to help the Jews in Europe escape----- in 1942 and 1943
