Failure

I thought that being a Jew means that we have a special role and purpose with a sacred mission? I thought the mission was to “perfect the world under the Kingdom of G-d” as we keep uttering in our daily prayers? Do we not always chant this incredible part of the prayer ALEINU below regularly? That we were not made like other nations?

Aleinu leshabeach la-adon hakol, lateit gedulah leyotzeir bereishit, shelo asanu kegoyei ha-aratzot, velo samanu kemishp’chot ha-adamah, shelo sam chelkeinu kahem, vegoraleinu kechal hamonam.
It is our duty to praise the Master of all, to ascribe greatness to the Molder of primeval creation, for He has not made us like the nations of the lands and has not emplaced us like the families of the earth; for He has not assigned our portion like theirs nor our lot like all their multitudes.

Israel’s Disunity and Downfall – A Warning

Don’t get me wrong. I dread the day of our own downfall, if it ever happens. But nevertheless it is beating strongly in me to warn our Jewish world that it may come if we do not even recognize the “symptoms” of our own society that will cause it to come.

An ancient prophecy in the Torah made by Ya’akov and Moshe Rabbinu reveals how in the end of days, which would be our time, a great evil is to befall “the last generation” of Israel. Two Orthodox Jewish writers published a lengthy article five years ago that explains this prophecy and how they deciphered this from the Torah codes. In the article the writers explain what the great evil is and who causes it to come. They also talk about why G-d even allow this great evil to befall Israel, and the Jewry all over the world — it is because of the DISUNITY within Israel and the Jewish people.

Fascination on the Memra Adonai

In my last article I talked about my fascination of the Sefirot, the mysterious Godhead and Adam Kadmon. This article mainly focuses on my fascination on another aspect of the Godhead, whom the Targum calls the “Memra YHVH”.

Whenever the Torah text show that the Holy Tetragrammaton appears twice in one same incident, as if there were two YHVH’s, the Targum explains that one of them was Memra YHVH. “Memra” is Aramaic for the “Word”. Interestingly, the Zohar also mentioned that the infinite Ein Sof emanates the Sefirot, whose name was also known as “Misaper” (Mispar) which literally means “to tell (a story)” or “to converse”. The meaning of the name has the same idea as “Memra YHVH”, the “Word” of Adonai. It is through him and because of him, that the world and everything in it was created.

Fascination on the Mysterious Godhead

Recently I have been fascinated by the mysterious and Divine Godhead that I have been reading about in Kabbalah writings and also the Targum. But what I’m about to write here is focused mainly on what fascinates me in the Kabbalah writings.

We have all been accustomed to the G-d that is unlimited, Ein Sof, who is far above and untouchable by us mortals. But Kabbalists teach us that the Sefirot, that emanates from Ein Sof, a.k.a. the Tree of Life is the media or the bridge that connects us mortals to the immortal G-d. The Father in heaven could never have been seen and understood if it was not for the Sefirot that shines forth out of Him.

Walking Down the Holocaust Path

I just returned from my trip to Poland, Germany and Holland, arriving there on the day when Poland was commemorating the Warsaw uprising against Nazi in World War II. I grew up in Germany and going to memorial places of the Holocaust was not the first time for me. However, returning to those places as an adult gave this trip a spiritually deeper insight.

Indonesia and Jews

My name is Elisheva, I am Jewish and I was born and raised in the most uncommon part of the world for Jews to live in — Indonesia, the greatest Muslim country in the world. Well, at least that is what the world thinks of her. The country is actually a republic. It just happens to have a population that is predominantly Muslim (80 percent). The government only acknowledges 5 religions and Judaism isn’t one of them.
