Fears for Tears: Part 1 & 2

In this session, AnaRina and Caz discuss some tough times ahead but also G-d's guidance and how repentance and a knowledge and consciousness of the Temple will turn the tables. 

Part 1:

Month of Tammuz
•    Moving into the core of the fast cycles
o    Fast cycles connected to Temple
o    4 fasts (not Yom Kippur)
    10 Tevet, 17 Tammuz, 9 av, 3 Tishrei
    Zechariah 7 vs Zechariah 8 (Fast to feasts, not yet, why? You are not mourning. You are not internalizing, you don’t even know what you are missing) - What can we do to move forward?

•    4th Biblical Month (counting from Nissan)
•    Tammuz – Babylonian name: Yechezkiel 8:14 (woman weeping for Tammuz)
o    Whole chapter about the disservice done in the Temple 
o    Chapter 8: differentiation between the House of Israel and the House of Judah  - this chapter shows us why G-d's presence left His house.
(Archaeology confirms why we see a presence of the House of Israel just before the Babylonian Exile, when the 10 Ten Tribes were already exiled during the Assyrian exile.)
o    Chapter 9-10 describes how G-d's presence left the Temple and the World.
REMEMBER: G-d's Presence left the House (Temple) and our world before the destruction of the FIRST TEMPLE and the Babylonian Exile. The Second Temple DID NOT host the Ark of the Covenant. 

•    3rd of Tammuz: Moon and Sun stood still
o    Joshua 10:13-14 (And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jashar? [Sefer HaYashar, still exists today and is studied by the Jewish People. It fills in a tremendous amount of gaps that are left open in the TANAKH. ] And the sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the L-RD hearkened unto the voice of a man; for the L-RD fought for Israel. {S})
o    G-d will hold worlds back for you to fulfill your purpose! We also discussed this in last month’s podcast: Hezekiah, when the King of Assyria was held up to give King Hezekiah time to complete his reform.
o    NASA study proves (this day as well as the account with king Hezekiah 2 Kings 20:11, adding up to a one missing day)
•    17th of Tammuz (This year 9th of July)
o    Hotspots on the Hebrew Calendar. (Strong/Positive vs Weak/Negative)
o    17 Tammuz
  main fast – Breaching of the walls. BUT
    Tammuz (idol worship root)
  Golden Calf, causing Moshe to break the tablets
    FIRST TEMPLE: Offerings were suspended (walls were already breached on the 9th)
    SECOND TEMPLE: Walls were breached
    Torah scroll burned (roman period) and idol placed in the Temple


Fears for Tears: Part 3

In this session, AnaRina and Caz discuss some tough times ahead but also G-d's guidance and how repentance and a knowledge and consciousness of the Temple will turn the tables. 

Part 3

o    Fast on 17 Tammuz 
 [3 weeks (9 Days)] 
 9 Av
o    21 Day period (Daniel)
o    9 Days 
    1st of Av: Aharon HaCohen died
    Sacrifices ceased (2nd Temple Period). We don’t eat meat for 9 days

o    The month of Av: 5th month
o    When Av enters our joy is diminished. (opposite of Adar when our joy is increased)
o    9th of Av: Again – a cluster of events: Main event (destruction of the FIRST AND SECOND Temple)

o    What lead up to it?
o    The sin of the spies 
    Note that the two leaders with a different spirit were Joshua (Yosef/Ephraim) and Calev (Judah)
    The whole generation had to die out in the desert. Same excuses that we see today: I cant’ move now, can’t do faith jumps now, I have to be responsible for my children…. Numbers  14:31 "Your children, however, whom you said would become a prey—I will bring them in, and they shall know the land which you have rejected"
* You have to get out of your COMFORT ZONE

o    9 Av in history (A review)
o    What happened in world history?
o    The First Crusade officially commenced on August 15, 1096 (Av 24, AM 4856), killing 10,000 Jews in its first month and destroying Jewish communities in France and the Rhineland.[9][11]
o    The Jews were expelled from England on July 18, 1290 (Av 9, AM 5050).
o    The Jews were expelled from France on July 22, 1306 (Av 10, AM 5066).
o    The Jews were expelled from Spain on July 31, 1492 (Av 7, AM 5252).
o    Germany entered World War I on August 1–2, 1914 (Av 9–10, AM 5674), which caused massive upheaval in European Jewry and whose aftermath led to the Holocaust.
o    What happened in modern-day history:
o    On August 2, 1941 (Av 9, AM 5701), SS commander Heinrich Himmler formally received approval from the Nazi Party for "The Final Solution." As a result, the Holocaust began during which almost one-third of the world's Jewish population perished.
o    On July 23, 1942 (Av 9, AM 5702), began the mass deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto, en route to Treblinka and other death camps.
o    The Israeli disengagement from Gaza began in the Gaza Strip, expelling 8000 Jews who lived in Gush Katif; August 15, 2005; 10 Av, 5765.
