The Tevet Turnaround: Part 1

In this session, AnaRina and Caz discuss Hanukkah and how it leads into the month of Tevet

In this section:

*Drawing the accumulated light of Hanukkah into the darkest month
Summary of Hanukkah:

  • Placing philosophy and sciences above G-d and His Torah

  • Greek = murky, luring in the ignorant

  •  How to make sure you're in the right light: Prov 3:15

  •  Why Jews have to Advertise the Miracle: We celebrate and proclaim G-d's protection and salvation in EVERY generation

 

TEVET:

* Ps 30 - Dedication of the House leads to a turnaround in your personal life - mourning into dancing!!
* Spinning the dreidels, bringing about the turnaround.
* Tevet in character is currently a difficult month.
* The start of the negative 4 fast-cycle
* Fasting on the 8th - Torah from Hebrew to Greek, 9th - the death of Ezra and Nehemiah, 10th - Besiegement of Jerusalem
* Translation ordered by Ptolomy, diminished the light
* Even in the darkest and most difficult event, there is not only a trace of G-d's goodness, but G-d is actually throwing you a lifeline.
* The terrible day of the translation of the Torah (G-d's living and multi-layered Word into a skin-deep narrative) actually allowed the world to connect to it.
* We are seeing people all across the world returning and starting to learn the significance and depth of Hebrew - G-d's Holy Language

The Tevet Turnaround: Part 2

In this series, AnaRina and Caz discuss Hanukkah and how it leads into the month of Tevet, the Fast of Tevet.

In this section:


*9 Tevet - the passing of Ezra and Nehemiah. In our days, may the Torah be restored and Jerusalem rebuilt.
* The political battle during the times of Nehemiah/ 52 day building period with sword in the one hand and brick in the other.
* 10 Tevet: Jerusalem besieged
*G-d promises to be a Wall of Fire in the future, but we have to do our part by firstly restoring her walls
* Two seals found with names written exactly as mentioned in Jeremiah 38.
* Jerusalem provides us with empirical proof of Jerusalem's connection to the Bible  - we need to take these truths and use it as ADVOCACY for Jerusalem and Israel, for the sake of Zion - becoming partners WITH Jerusalem
* How did the seals survive? A tragic moment provides a hopeful message (Beauty for Ashes)
* Jerusalem's destruction is mentioned twice in one verse in a very strange way: what does it mean?

The Tevet Turnaround: Part 3

In this series, AnaRina and Caz discuss Hanukkah and how it leads into the month of Tevet, the Fast of Tevet.

In this segment:

*The order of the Fasts Cycle: 10th (month) - 4th - 5th - 7th
*The Assyrian exile of the 10 Tribes and also the Babylonian Exile happened in phases. The Return of the Exiles will also happen in phases - we can see this in the Aliyah Waves of Immigration (compared to the Dawn growing stronger)
* Zech 8: Fasts to Feasts
* Zech 1, 2 and 3. The recurring theme of G-d choosing (EARTHLY) Jerusalem AGAIN:
** Zech 1: G-d having compassion over Israel and JLM (and being angry against the nations who overdid the punishment)
** Zech 2: G-d rosing Himself from His Holy Habitation - through choosing JLM again
** Zech3: G-d rebuking the Satan, in the name of the One Who chooses JLM (numbering of these chapters according to the numbering in the Hebrew Bible)
* Earthly Jerusalem plays a PIVOTAL part in G-ds Redemption Plan
* Zech 8 final message after the Fasts turn into Feasts is that the nations will realize and acknowledge that G-d is "with you" (You =Jewish People)
* It's time to Face Jerusalem (like Daniel. It's Biblical)
* Facing Jerusalem during prayer, having a conscious spiritual focus releases a force against the current anti-Zionist, anti-Israel, antisemitic spirit in the world.  Imagine the power if every person faces Jerusalem while they pray (!)
