“Humanity Day” – special lesson

Hello and greetings

To you and your family
From the Land of Israel.
First, let me we wish all members in the United States
As they celebrate happily and peacefully with their families.
Especially on this year, that we also celebrate the "Humanity Day"
on this weekend
And this is a great opportunity to invite you to a Special lesson
I prepared for this occasion.

As you know, this Sunday, we will celebrate Humanity Day.
This is the day that, according to tradition, Noah exited the Ark.
It’s a special day because it expresses the fact that we are all children of the same father,
And that despite the tensions, rifts, power struggles and wars,
there is hope for our world
To unite and once again live in peace with one another.
The entire book of Genesis,
The book that the Hebrew nation is currently reading every week in synagogue,
Begins with the first murder case.
Cain kills his brother.
Genesis continues with several other stories of conflicts and fights between brothers.
Abraham and Lot cannot continue to live together.
As Abraham says:
“Please let there be no strife between me and you…for we are brothers…”
Isaac and Ishmael cannot live in the same household either, and Ishmael is expelled.
For Jacob and Esau, the hatred bursts forth as a clear statement,
And there is a serious concern that once again, a man will be killed by his own brother.
In the next generation, Joseph and Judah clash in a conflict
That almost results in the murder of Joseph.
The book can only end when these two brothers make peace and decide to live together!
This, in short, is the fate of humanity.
From its earliest days and to this very day, people fight over land,
People want control, governments want more power,
And imperialism eats away at everything
To a ridiculous extent.
Have you ever thought about why, after Napoleon conquered north Arabia,
The people of Tunis and Algeria
Learned that the Gauls were their ancestors?!...
If it wasn’t a true story, this would be great material for a comedy…
But that’s how the world works

And we believe that it doesn’t have to be this way!

Each one of you also share the idea that it is possible to change,
That there is space for everyone,
That people don’t need to be identical and live their lives identically.

I am honored to invite you to listen to a special talk.

It’s the first in a series of courses that we are currently preparing
At the World Institute for Self-Education [Noahide Universty].
Next week, when our new website will be live,
We’ll invite you to join us as a full partner in all of our courses.
This talk will later be accessible for a fee,
But in honor of this special date, Humanity Day,
We are offering free access to the talk for just 48 hours!
We would love to hear your feedback on the talk.

With all my blessings and greetings of shalom from the Land of Israel,

Rabbi Chaim Goldberg

The Fast of the 17th of Tammuz

A recorded message from Rav Cherki about the fast of the 17th of Tammuz.

The fast of the 17th of Tammuz occurred this year on July 15. The five tragic events listed in the Talmud as having happened on this day can be seen as representing concentric circles, each one at a greater distance from the center of holiness. We pray that with Divine guidance we will be privileged to rebuild what we have lost.

May you be blessed with good and healthy life and abundance.
--------------   In the meantime until the prophecy will come back:

Have a doctor’s appointment and feel the need to pray?

Looking for a partner? wanted to ask God’s help?

Need help making a living and want to know how to pray?

Looking for the right words prophetic tradition to thank the Creator?

Wish to pray Like the Old Testament prophets?
The prayers which was passed on traditionally
from the time of the Prophets – And have been
preserved for thousands of years among the people of Israel?!

 

Rav Cherki – Messages for Shavuot

Shavuot this year (5776, 2016) begins at the end of Shabbat June 11. In Israel it ends Sunday night, outside of Israel it ends Monday night.

Shavuot as a Universal Holiday


There are 620 letters in the Ten Commandments, corresponding to the 613 mitzvot of the Torah and the additional 7 mizvot of Bnei Noach. The Torah cannot be given to Israel unless it has at least one universal branch. Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses, came in the name of all of humanity to participate in the momentous event of the giving of the Torah. G-d offered the Torah to the other nations, but most of the people rejected it. But, as the Polish Count Pototzky said, "Today it is possible to be a Ben Noach and to accept the Torah." This means that the holiday of receiving the Torah is not just for the Jews but is a celebration for the entire world.

Shavuot and the First Fruits


The significance of Bikurim - giving away the first fruits:
It is not explicitly written that the Torah was given on Shavuot, but the Torah does give the holiday as the date for Bikurim - bringing the first fruits to the Temple. Any man who has labored for an entire year definitely wants to eat the first fruit, but he gives it to somebody else - to a priest in the holy Temple. This act reminds of King David, who was born and died on Shavuot. David wrote the Five Books of the Psalms as prayer and praise of G-d in response to the Five Books of the Torah, which are the Word of G-d brought down from heaven to mankind.

Pesach – Video messages by Rav Cherki

True freedom is serving the Holy One, Blessed be He. One of the messages of Passover is the concept of unity. Everything in the world, including what appears to be good and what appears at first glance to be bad, is an expression of the unity of God. This is also the essence of the Passover Sacrifice, which like matza and bitter herbs symbolizes the unification of opposite forces.

Passover is a message of great news not just for the Jews but for all the people in the world: Freedom for everybody is possible! The exile of the world began after the splitting up of the population after the Tower of Babel, and Israel's mission since then has been to gather the holy "sparks" of every nation and to reunite the people of the world. The return of Israel to its homeland is a sign of redemption for the whole world.
