On Thursday, a bit of the former glory of the Temple was witnessed by three hundred people who took part in the full-dress reenactment of the Sukkot water-libation ceremony.
 
The group set out from the Dung Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem in the early evening, making its way down the steep steps leading to the Shiloah Spring. Led by six Kohanim (Jewish men descended from Aaron the Priest) and accompanied by music, the crowd sang and danced as they passed from the archaeological remains of the ancient City of David, through an Arab village, to the spring which was used in Temple times.

The Kohanim wore vestments that were made according to Biblical standards for use in the Temple and several played long silver trumpets that had been prepared by the Temple Institute for use in the Third Temple. One Kohen carried a silver vessel used for the libation while the High Priest carried a spectacular gold vessel prepared this year for this year’s service.

“A vessel like this has not been seen since the Temples stood,” Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin and an organizer of the event, told Breaking Israel News.

The procession then climbed to a plaza overlooking the valley, where a model altar had been constructed of wood. The ceremony, carried out precisely as it was performed in the Temple, took place closer to the Temple Mount than any other Temple reenactment thus far. An equal amount of water and wine were poured into two separate containers. The two liquids then spilled out onto the altar through openings in the containers.

In Temple times, a libation of water was made together with the pouring out of wine at the morning service on the last six days of the week-long Sukkot holiday.

Though not explicitly mandated in the Torah, the water libation is part of the oral tradition passed down from Moses. Sukkot is a joyous holiday and the water libation was the focal point of this joy. In the Temple, the ceremony would take fifteen hours with accompanying celebrations lasting all night until the Temple service began again the next morning.

“The basis of Sukkot is universal, bringing bounty to all 70 nations, as symbolized by the 70 bulls brought as sacrifices throughout the festival,” Rabbi Weiss said. “The world is facing many universal threats and coming together is vital. The Temple was a way in which the nations could come together in holiness, each nation bringing their aspect of holiness and connection with Hashem in order to avert these universal threats.”
 
“This must necessarily be done from a Biblical basis and from Jerusalem,” Rabbi Weiss said, citing a verse from the Prophets.
And the many peoples shall go and say: “Come, Let us go up to the Mount of Hashem, To the House of the God of Yaakov; That He may instruct us in His ways, And that we may walk in His paths.” For instruction shall come forth from Tzion, The word of Hashem from Yerushalayim. Isaiah 2:3
The United Nations imitated this by establishing Israel as one of their first acts but they have strayed since then, the most egregious act being their attacks on Jerusalem which were attempts to delay the building of the Third Temple. President Trump clearly recognizes this and has called on the UN to either fix themselves or to disband.”
At the ceremony Rabbi Azriel Ariel announced the birth of the red heifer.
“This is the beginning of a long process that will, God willing, allow us to purify all of Israel, Rabbi Ariel said. “This is not us forcing God’s hand. We are simply performing mitzvoth (Torah commandments) as given to us in the Torah.”
He explained that the actual preparation of the ashes will be in two years. Until that time, it is considered an egla (calf) by Jewish law. At the age of two, it becomes classified a para  (heifer) and can be sacrificed and burned, it’s ashes used in the purification ritual.
In the meantime, the rabbis will be studying the relevant laws and the Kohanim will be preparing for the ritual.

Neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement targets Jews on Yom Kippur
"This year, the modern-day successors of the Nazis, known as the Nordic Resistance Movement, have mounted a vile and vicious campaign of hate against Jews in Northern Europe."

The neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement targeted Jews in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland with antisemitic campaigns throughout the week leading up to Yom Kippur - the holiest day in the Hebrew calendar.
Websites belonging to the neo-Nazi movement reported actions taken by the group in almost 20 different cities. Pictures allegedly showing the actions taken by the group show members confronting Jewish worshipers and standing in front of synagogues, antisemitic posters placed in public areas and flyer distributions in public areas.
 
 
IDF exposes the shocking truth about recent explosions in Lebanon
Where is the international world? Why are they not outraged by this? It is time they start focusing their attention on what really matters.

Explosions in Lebanon have made the news. But is the international world outraged by why these explosions are happening? It is time to wake up!

Explosions in Lebanon
The explosions in Lebanon have caused death and damage. And who is responsible? Hezbollah! A terrorist organization. An organization that uses human shields. They do not care what happens to the Lebanese people. Hezbollah has caused them to suffer time and time again.
 
But the international world is not outraged. They are not doing anything to improve the lives of those suffering under Hezbollah.
Israel is trying to bring the world’s attention to the problems that should really be focused on. The stability of the Middle East is at risk because of those who do not care about human life.
 
Using humans as shields is horrific. It is time the international world cared!
 
Israel is What’s Right in the MidEast
It is kind of absurd and ironic. The UN and the international world spend so much time criticizing Israel, yet they refuse to spend a breath condemning Hezbollah for what they are doing to the Lebanese people. The Middle East is filled with countries that want to not only destroy Israel, but destroy the Western world and Western values. The world should be thanking Israel for protecting the freedoms that so many hold dear. They should be thanking Israel for standing at the front lines against terrorism.
 
 
Israel defends its people. Israel even defends the civilians of its enemies. How many countries do that?
 
It is time for the world to open its eyes to the truth: The truth about Israel, and the truth about the countries which surround the Jewish state. Israel is what is good and right about the Middle East. It is the lighthouse in a region that is lost at sea.

Auschwitz connects note found in boy’s shoe with father’s briefcase
Extraordinary discovery by researchers establishes connection between case owned by Ludvik Steinberg and a shoe worn by Amos Steinberg, killed in 1944, containing a hidden message
By JENNI FRAZER 
September 30, 2020, 3:55 pm
Case discovered by the Auschwitz museum, linked to a shoe worn by Amos Steinberg, inscribed with a message from his family
 After some extraordinary detective work by the Auschwitz Museum, a briefcase at the memorial has been linked to a child’s shoe which was identified in July as belonging to a little boy called Amos Steinberg. The briefcase, says the Museum, almost certainly belonged to the boy’s father — and he survived the Holocaust. 
 
Amos Steinberg was born in Prague on June 26 1938. On August 10 1942, Amos, his father Ludvik (or Ludwig) and his mother Ida were first imprisoned in Theresienstadt, and then deported from Czechoslovakia to Auschwitz.
Documents show that mother and son arrived at the concentration camp on October 4 1944 and were almost certainly murdered in a gas chamber on the same day.
 
But the family was split up at Theresienstadt and Ludvik was apparently sent to Auschwitz on an earlier transport. “We know”, say the Museum, “that he was transferred from Auschwitz to Dachau on October 10 1944. He was liberated in the Kaufering sub-camp”. So six days after his wife and son had been murdered, Ludvik was still being processed in the Nazi system. 
 
This summer, members of the Steinberg family, who live in Israel, contacted the Museum, and sent additional biographical information and some family photographs.  
 
Ludvik Steinberg changed his name to Yehuda Shinan and emigrated to Israel in May 1949. He became a teacher and principal of several schools in Israel. He was highly valued and liked by his pupils and teachers who worked with him. He still loved music and worked as a cantor in several synagogues. He also conducted choirs. He died in 1985. His second wife, Chana, whom he had met before the war in Prague, died in 2014. They had six grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
 
The link between Amos’s shoe and the battered case was not easy to find. The case was already in the Museum collection and documentation showed that at least two men named Ludwig or Ludvik Steinberg were at Auschwitz.  
 
But barely seen on the case is the number “541”, almost invisible to the naked eye. After infrared technology showed the number, the researchers understood that this was the number under which Amos was registered on the transport list to the Theresienstadt Ghetto. That clue, together with material in the case itself and the date on which the Steinberg family arrived in Auschwitz, has led the Museum to believe that the case did belong to Amos’s father.

The director of the Auschwitz Museum, Dr Piotr Cywinski, said: “I am deeply grateful to the Steinberg family for the information they have given us and for supplementing our knowledge. With this gesture, objects inextricably linked to Auschwitz lose the anonymity weighing down on them — sometimes unbearable — and acquire a deeper, individual significance. 
 
Piotr Cywinski (Source: Wikipedia. Author: Pawel Sawicki)
“As an object of great documentary value, the shoe is proof of the suffering of a particular person, and along with thousands of other objects that we preserve at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial, evidence of the genocide that took place here”.
 
The plan now is to move the case with Ludwig Steinberg’s name on it to the main exhibition — and the guides at Auschwitz will be told about the heartbreaking link between it and a child’s shoe.

Bibi's speech to the UN changed the world's view of the Mideast
y Phil Schneider - October 1, 2020 2204 0
The dual agreements between the UAE and Israel and Bahrain and Israel were unprecedented on multiple levels. First of all, this was not one, but two agreements, that were signed on one day with two Arab countries. Secondly, the agreements proved once and for all, that the basis for peace in the Middle East does not need to be about land swaps. On the contrary, the key to peace in the Middle East is the willingness by countries to simply shun a state of warfare and strive for economic prosperity.

President Trump is not a brilliant peacemaker. But the peace agreement that the Arab countries and Israel have signed is indeed a master stroke of brilliance in how it switches the norms of the Middle East. There are multiple countries in the Middle East that are indeed threatened by Iran. Israel is not the only country. The smaller countries like the UAE and Bahrain are both threatened by radicalization in their midst. The key to their combating these forces is economic prosperity. As long as these countries continue to be magnets for prosperity, they will not have major internal protests that foment unrest. So, the UAE and Bahrain may not have had a major change of heart and decided that Israel is wonderful. But, it’s sufficient that their interests vis-a-vis Iran line up with Israel’s interests. This is a basic concept of international diplomacy.
 
Both President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu deserve tremendous praise for their accomplishments. But more than anything else, they deserve praise for minimizing the Iranian threat through a mix of strong sanctions and containment of the Iranian threat in the Middle East. On foreign policy in the Middle East, President Trump and Netanyahu deserve much praise.

Military experts still can’t explain the Six Day War and its miracles
By Leah Rosenberg - October 19, 2019 22739 0
The Six Day War was a miraculous win for Israel, as is every moment of Israel’s existence. You can’t explain it. The only way to explain it is with God.
The Six Day War
During the Six Day War, the odds were against Israel. Israel’s enemies tried to destroy it. They were completely outnumbered. The enemies had more weapons, more people. But the impossible happened. Israel won.
Miracle after miracle. Israel even recaptured the Old City of Jerusalem. You cannot explain the victory of the Six Day War without believing that God protected Israel and fought for them. There is just no rational reason that Israel should have triumphed over the enemy! But it did!
 
Odds Are Always Against Israel
Does it sound familiar? That the odds were against Israel? That seems to be the way history has gone. The odds have been against the Jewish people, yet they continue to exist. Not only do they continue to exist, but they thrive.
As Mark Twain wrote, “If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in the world, in all the ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed, and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?”

Bahrain’s Lost Jews Anticipate Return After Peace with Israel
Bahrain’s dwindling community of less than 50 Jews has been offered a new lease on life in the wake of the signing of this month’s historic Abraham Accords, with many in Israel anxious to reconnect to their homeland.
 
Most former Bahrainis forfeited their passports when making aliyah, so current numbers are unclear. The Jewish Agency has only two formal registrations but numbers are certainly far higher than that. Munir Akirav, 35, born in Givatayim, is one of a small number of Jews of Bahraini origin living in Israel. His mother and her family left Bahrain in 1970.
 
“My personal connection to Bahrain is based on stories, pictures, videos, from my mother’s family,” he says. “The connection is one of nostalgia and longing for a time of which you were never a part. So, for me it’s a very, very strong feeling,” explains the accountant and credit analyst. When he heard the news of the Abraham Accords, overcoming decades of political annexation of Israel, he said he “jumped for joy.” (JPost / VFI News)

Antisemitism is Taking Over College Campuses Across America
By Leah Rosenberg - September 30, 2020 555 0
Many college campuses have become a place of utter Jew-hatred instead of acceptance. The education is not what it used to be, and it is frightening.

Stop the Hate on College Campuses
Are you going to university? Or maybe you have a relative at one of the many college campuses across the United States? It is crucial to be aware of what university students are experiencing throughout North America. Antisemitism is plaguing these institutions.
 
Words like “Intifada” or “violent uprising” and phrases such as “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” is a guise which calls for the destruction of Israel.
 
Yes, Jewish students are intimidated on college campuses. Some are afraid to wear anything distinctly Jewish; some look over their shoulder to make sure no one is trying to attack them. And non-Jewish students are being bombarded by massive pro-Palestinian propaganda.
 
Could this really be happening in America? This is an issue which we cannot ignore and cannot remain silent about. University students are the next generation of American citizens and voters. As long and as much as we are able, every one of us needs to fight this antisemitic, pro-terrorist campaign to make sure that the US remains a safe, decent, and democratic country.

Pompeo: The Chinese Government is Re-Writing the Bible
China continues to persecute religious minorities, rewriting the Bible to make it conform to Chinese Marxist doctrine, and sending Uighurs Muslims to re-education camps, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said.
Speaking during a session at the Values Voter Summit 2020, held virtually, Pompeo said: “We watch today the challenge that Christians and Catholics have to practice their faith inside of China.”
“The Chinese Communist Party is trying to rewrite the Bible itself to ‘Sinicize’ the Christian doctrine,” he added. “That’s unacceptable. That will diminish the Chinese people. We want good things for them.”
China officially recognizes five religions: Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Protestantism, and Catholicism. However, the US Department of State's 2019 Report on International Religious Freedom: China notes that although "the constitution, which cites the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party and the guidance of Marxism-Leninism and Mao Zedong Thought, states that citizens have freedom of religious belief," it "limits protections for religious practice to “normal religious activities” and does not define “normal.” (JPost / VFI News)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. - John 14:6
“God, we ask that you protect all those who face persecution for their beliefs—that you would show them your mercy and love, and grant them freedom from oppression.”

"The United States welcomes the decision by the Governments of Israel and Lebanon to begin discussions on the maritime boundary. This historic agreement between the two parties is the result of nearly three years of intense diplomatic engagement by Ambassador David Satterfield and Assistant Secretary David Schenker," Pompeo said.
 
"Recognizing the positive experience of the Tripartite mechanism, the United States also looks forward to separate expert-level talks to define unresolved issues related to the Blue Line, which offer the promise of another positive step for regional stability," the Secretary of State concluded.
