1 thought on “Chanukkah

  1. The 5th day of Hanukkah

    Recently a non Jew rebuked me. The reference repeatedly made by myself unto Goyim, offended him; he considered such language as racist. Comparable to the black racial reference “cracker”. The Goyim did not accept the revelation of the Torah at Sinai and Horev. This refusal makes Goyim “strangers” or hagar — strange alien people to the chosen Cohen nation. Which term of reference reflects pardon? Goy or Ha’ger.

    Ha’ger Hagar
    ואיש איש מבני ישראל ומן הגר הגר בתוכם אשר יצוד ציד חיה או עוף אשר יאכל ושפך את דמו וכסהו בעפר
    Hagar betrayed the dignity and modesty of Sarah our mother. My response to that rebuke: the Hebrew for goy remembers “nation”. Zionism remembers “goy”. The shabbot minchah tefilla identifies Yaacov as “goy”; the Cohen goy chosen to walk through tohor middot. during social interactions, among and between bnai brit.

    Goy far preferrable than tumah Hagar…הגר הגר בתוכם? חנוכה יום חמש בחנוכה?
    Story or tale, the Torah does not limit itself to 3 physical dimensions. Both the 5th axium of Euclid’s geometry and the “scientific method” limit reality of the Gods to 3 physical diemensions – death.

    Moshe commands mussar to Israel on the day he passed from this earth: life or death, therefore choose life. Remember the Cohen chosen, first born. Only Israel accepted the revelation of the Torah at Sinai and Horev. Upon the יסוד of this Preamble let’s examine the opening second chapter, Mishna Shabbot and its relationship to the mitzva to light the Hanukkah lights.

    מסכת שבת פרק ב
    ב,א במה מדליקין, ובמה אין מדליקין: אין מדליקין לא בלכש, ולא בחוסן, ולא בכלך, ולא בפתילת האידן, ולא בפתילת המדבר, ולא בירוקה שעל פני המים. לא בזפת, ולא בשעווה, ולא בשמן קיק, ולא בשמן שריפה, ולא באליה, ולא בחלב. נחום המדי אומר, מדליקין בחלב מבושל; וחכמים אומרים, אחד מבושל ואחד שאינו מבושל, אין מדליקין בו.

    Tohor or Tuma middots\attributes who struggle – think Esau and Yaacov who struggled and fought a Civil War even while growing within the womb of רבקה אמנו. HaShem chooses the first born, birth order does not determine the first born. Cohen Israel … Chosen Nation\goy. The name goy, merits respect. Not so Hagar a stranger within bnai brit society. This distinction, the sages ruled in the favor the interpretation of “Hagar” as the hidden ערב רב within us.

    The Prosecution, בית שמאי versus בית הלל, the Defense. 2 of the Three Judges who sit as Judges on the Court. These two judges argue the Case before the third Judge of the Court. Lateral common law courtroom, none of the 3 Justices who hear and adjudicate cases, do not receive any State paid reimbursement for their public services.

    Contrast vertical courtrooms. Both the Judge(s) and the Prosecuting attorney, paid a State salary. The American revolutionary leaders organized a Rebellion against continued British rule over the American colonies. All the American colonies together united in alliance. At least till the explosion of the American Civil War.

    When King George, remember diplomacy, he rejected the American precondition,,, to remain part of the British Empire,,, King George rejected. Taxation without Representation — how the kingdoms of Germany, one and all, unilaterally imposed crushing, unjustifiable all by rules of law, criminal taxation – imposed only upon stateless refugee Jewish populations. Taxation without Representation offered two choices; when the Nazis marched Jews to death camps – they too employed the same type of torture. Life or Death – maybe the “jewish question”.

    The Xtian church continually debated that “jewish question”. Late in the war, the Pope surrendered all the jews of Rome to the SS. The defense of the Pope? or The prosecution of the Pope? The Allies, refused; they rejected the need to bomb the rail lines leading to the death camps,,, throughout the entire War.

    Not the place of this opinion to argue the case of the prosecution of the Pope. This judge argues for his Defense. Not fair to isolate the Pope like the church isolated their Jewish refugee populations. Without trial the church and secular European governments condemn Jews living in Western Europe to either flee to Eastern Europe or live within ghetto prisons. The defense therefore argues that the din of Hagar falls upon the Allied victors of the 2nd European and Russian Civil War during the 20th Century.

    Russia, subjugated under the feet of Stalin, fought and won that 2nd European Civil War.

    The 300 year Czarist regime of Autocracy lost the first European Civil War. Had Czar Nicolas not surrendered, [“Leader” de Gaulle likewise argued concerning France – despite the Vichi opposite], Russia would have ruled all of Ottoman Turkey… comparable to French “rule” over Lebanon and Syria; and British “mandate” over Iraq, Jordan, and Israel; as designated by the secret terms of the Sykes Pycot treaty.

    Balfour Declaration.

    The post First European Civil War established – League of Nations; established by the victor Allies — compare the post 2nd European Civil War established – the United Nations. The League of Nations honored the Balfour Declaration as the basis for awarding to the British, the British Mandate of Palestine: land that included both Jordan and Iraq.

    The British government separated Trans-Jordan from Palestine at the Jordan river. In 1950 all members except two nations refused to condemn the unilateral decision taken by the king of Jordan, to Nationalize the territories of Samaria and East Jerusalem within the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan.
    [[[“”” Wiki-pedia: “Shiʿites in Arabia”. Encyclopædia Iranica. Retrieved 2019-08-29. The Zaydi denomination of the (Ḥasanid) Sharifian rulers of Mecca and the Imāmi-Shiʿi leanings of the (Ḥosaynid) emirs of Medina were well known to medieval Sunni and Shiʿi observers. This situation gradually changed under Mamluk rule. A number of Shiʿite and Sunnite sources hint at (alleged or real) sympathy for the Shiʿa among the Hāshemite (officially Sunni) families of the Ḥejāz, or at least some of their members””]]] .

    Yet the UN as a body of Nations has, especially since the Israeli victory in its 2nd War of Independence. \Europe 0 & 2, Israel 2 & 0/. Starting with UN Resolution 242, most UN member states reject the victory of Israel over the Arabs in 1967. Euopean Hager nations together with the Hager Russia empire, both demand that Israel must most certainly surrender its victory in June 1967; their final final solution.

    That World Peace hinges upon forcing Israel to (first) surrender the 2nd Israeli War of Independence. דיוק \The inference learned/ the EU share an alliance with Russia to destroy and uproot the Israeli victory 1948 Independence War. Both the EU and Russian governments share the identical strategic interest — on this single issue.

    This alliance, proved by the repeated UN condemnations, exposes the allies Strategic Interest hostility against the Jewish people as stands with the Independent State of Israel. These “Allies” ,,, What if a man like President Trump rejects EU and Russian hatred of an Independent Jewish nation within the Middle East. This suspicion stands not only upon the ashes of the Shoah; a leopard cannot change its spots any more that Cain can remove the mark of his curse. Over 3 years, even when proven wrong, the Democrats condemned President Trump as a Putin stooge. Slander. Character Assassination. Lies.

    Israeli strategic foreign policy interests? Define and know your Enemy. Subterfuge defines foreign relations. Discern between the feigned thrust and the actual attack, substance from blow up dummies. The army of Patton prior to the Normandy invasion. The Arab and Muslim countries in the Middle East and North Africa and also Turkey. NOT an easy choice. Israel has a long history with Persia. Should this Judge argue in favor of a Sunni tilt in Israeli priority relations? Y\N?

    Should Israel hope to restore the positive relationship enjoyed with Turkey prior to the current dictator. Turkey has a Sunni majority population. For Turkey to embrace Shiite, would it not provoke, which the current dictator encountered, a coo rebellion attempt made against the continued rule of the government under his leadership?

    The risks threaten disaster – applicable to both Y\N answers. The Cohen nation requires leadership. Leaders of our nation decide these issues – NOT Judges. Judges learn from the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin jurisdiction, limited only within the borders of the Cohen Republic of States.

    International issues fall outside the purview of the Justices of these lateral common law courtrooms. The determination which orders the set of priorities of strategic Israeli Foreign Policy, Judges of these Courts have absolutely no say in the matter.

    Who merits the name Goy? Who demerits the name Hagar? Which of the two has a ‘””good name”””? Does ‘fear of heaven’ mean ‘baal shem tov”? This judge emphatically defines a good name by baal shem tov. Which of the two possible names applies to Y\N? A Judge writes opinions, leaders decide which opinion they choose to heed. The Torah & NaCH repeatedly tell stories of choices different leaders of Yechuda and Israel made.

    Clearly the Torah blesses an oath blessing that Yechuda and Israel live by proper Divine brit blessing, when the leaders of the government obey and heed the council opinions voiced or expressed by prophets. All T’NaCH prophets command mussar – the command of HaShem for ever.

    The Chanukkah lights shine prophetic mussar, as does the reading of the Megillah of Ester, the Shabbat candles, and all the halachot learned from the T’NaCH Shas Siddur Midrash sealed masoret. The kabbala of Torah faith does not begin on the 10th Floor of medieval Jewish mysticism – known as Cabbalah.

    מאי חנוכה
    This sugia begins on דף כא,page 2. The Talmud forbids benefit from the Hanukkah lights, but not the odor of the burnt oil, the fuel for the lights. Hanukkah, a time of great joy. With this introduction, commit to דרוש … learn prophetic mussar and affix this prophet mussar to both a דאורייאת middah – affixed to a specific ברכה within the 13 middle blessings within the Shemone Esrei.

    The scholarship of both Aggadita and Midrashim making a דרוש back to the Torah and NaCH prophets. The mussar which these prophets command, the k’vanna פשט learned by both the Aggadic or Midrash Primary Source. This דרוש linkage, employs aggadic or midrashic stories to teach Prophetic mussar commandments.

    As the precedent halachot define the legal mandate of each and and every Mishna, so too and how much more so, the defined Prophetic mussar commandments determine the k’vanna of all halachot precedents which define the scope of all Mishnaic rulings which Rabbi Yechuda’s Mishna makes. Herein defines the chariot mysticism of Rabbi Akiva, his warp: פרדס definition for the Torah sh’Baal Peh.

    Positive time oriented commandments “fulfilled” primarily and decisively through the dedication of defined tohor middot affixed to specific blessings within the language of the Shemone Esrei.

    The Siddur stands upon the “loom”, weft kabbalah recognized as מעשה בראשית. The act of new Creation stands as the יסוד of Joyfull avodat HaShem – obeying the prophetic mussar commandments of the prophets. Defining a mussar commandment requires פרדס. This and that kabbala, these opposing stands, they weave the fabric of Torah faith.

    Parech אחרי מות פרק יז:א – טז, what prophetic mussar does it command? Just as the codification of the Oral Torah stands upon the יסוד which requires comparison of a legal case to precedent court ruling made prior to the current case before the Court; in like and equal manner to interpret the mussar commandment of the Torah requires learning the Torah based upon comparing the mussar commandments of a specific NaCH prophet.

    This judge interprets this Parech of Torah to define the halachot: making blessings before eating a meal as equal to the obligation to make an after meal blessing, learned from the דאורייתא commandment concerning bread eaten as a meal. The Talmud opens with ברכות as the Torah starts with בראשית.

    The kabbalah of learning, this discipline entails comparing the case of the Torah to a similar case or cases within the mussar of the NaCH prophets. This prophetic mussar defines the פשט of either Aggaditah or Midrashic primary sources.

    What distinguishes Aggaditah scholarship from Midrashic scholarship? Aggaditah affixes prophetic mussar commandments unto a designated Mishna. Midrash affixes Midrashic stories\פשט, made affixed to a specific designated ברכה within the Shemone Esrei tefillah.

    The warp\weft פרדס\מעשה בראשית kabbalot raise prophetic mussar unto Torah commandments; this discipline requires learning by way of precedents. The sh’itta of the study of both Talmud and T’NaCH literature —– one shitta. Comparable to the word One, in the opening p’suk\verse of the mitzva of kre’a shma. Hear Israel Halacha Aggaditah Tefilla – ONE. The Torah commandment to sanctify the נעשה ונשמע oath, by which Cohen Israel accepted the revelation of the Written Torah at Sinai and the Oral Torah at Horev. The יסוד commandment that unites in קידושין this and that לשמה – the 1st Commandment at Sinai. לשם טהור מידות.

    Both tohor and tuma middot, they shape how a person socially behaves and interacts with the allied cohen people of the Chosen first-born Republic,,, shalom or hatred, honor or disgrace, life or death. Avodat HaShem, expressed through the Torah commandment of tefilla, dedicates as holy to HaShem, through making sworn blessings, tohor middot. The defined mitzva of Moshiach/from the Torah\; tefilla calls upon HaShem to judge the God(s) worshiped by the Yatzir HaRah. Upon this brit, Yehoshua lead the invasion of Canaan. The order of Rashi tefillen, based upon the sworn oath Israel cut a brit alliance with HaShem at Gilgal. Herein defines the k’vanna of HaShem commanding Moshe to bring Israel out of Egypt.

    The minor prophet עמוס ה:ד – כז compares and learns the mussar commandment ויקרא פרק יז:א – טז. The mussar commandment, failure to bless our people (A “how much more so” logical argument. If the Torah commands to bless before and after eating a meal, how much more so, a Torah obligation to bless our people before and after legal disputes and conflicts of interest).

    Yosef failed to bless his brothers before he died, and Israel experienced the Torah curse of g’lut; Moshe blessed the 12 Tribes of the nation before he passed from this World, and Yehoshua brought Israel and conquered Canaanite kings.

    This prophetic mussar affixes to the Neshama of the Rosh HaShanna judgment – the blessing:
    סלח לנו אבינו כי חטאנו, מחל לנו מלכנו כי פשענו, כי אל טוב וסלח אתה. ברוך אתה ה’ חנון המרבה לסלח.
    Blessing our people defines the mitzva of סלחה. As long as we eat food, Israel has the Torah obligation to bless our people. We bless our people, and even if confronted by Giants during war, Israel prevails victorious – as happened in both 1948 and 1967. HaShem separates the Cohen nation from all other Goyim through the Cohen blessing of our people. The Cohen blessing learns from the Torah obligation to bless food before and after consumption.

    The spirituality of Goyim religions places a lower priority obligation of Goyim blessing Goyim, starting with the negative commandment not to curse the leaders of ones’ people. Goyim societies openly curse and despise the leaders of their people. Like did the Pelosi Democrats curse President Trump, #45. Herein defines the mussar of עמוס as the פשט of the ילקוט שמעוני midrash on this 3 sugiot making up ה:ד -כז.

    Prophets command mussar. Torat Moshe commands all generations of bnai brit Israel to listen and obey prophetic mussar while living and ruling the oath sworn lands. Herein defines the k’vanna of the mitzva דאורייתא to light the Hanukkah lights. Noach cursed Ham. Therefore the Torah obligation to pursue graciousness and pardon our people – the expression of a good eye and good heart. The halachot of Hanukkah learned by the Gemara on this opening Mishna of the 2nd chapter of Shabbot, the dedication of these halachot affixed to the 3rd blessing of סלח לנו, achieve raising them to positive time oriented commandments from the Torah לשמה.

    As a summation, the learning how to raise rabbinic commandments to positive time oriented commandments from the Torah. Torat Moshe compares eating meats not slaughtered in front of the altar, dedicated to HaShem, unto blood shed. Torat Moshe – eating living blood דאורייתא carries the din of כרת.

    Jump to the halachic commandment to make a blessing over (before and after eating) foods. Hanukkah remembers the Jewish Civil Wars fought between the P’rushim and the Tzeddukim assimilated care taker 2% fabulously rich Jews who manage the wealth of the banana republic for the benefit of the colonial over lords.

    After defeating the Syrian Greeks, the Hashmonaim kings broke their alliance with the P’rushim and cut an alliance with the Hagar T’zeddukim assimilated Jews. This betrayal by the Hashmonaim kings provoked a huge Civil War which defined the Hashmonaim kingdom throughout its blood shed history ruling over the Jewish people as an Independent nation. Therefore the mussar of סלח לנו teaches that to bless a pardon to our People directly compares to making blessings over foods, before and after eating – that rabbinic commandment learns from the Torah prohibition of murder and not eating blood and the mussar obligation to סלח לנו to our people.
