This is just a real quick update. I know I am running behind on a lot of things and I will try to play catch up on Monday or Tuesday of next week. My blood pressure has been dropping and they are taking me off of my blood pressure medicine because my hypertension has been miraculously cured as well as my weight problem. Now the BP meds are causing my blood pressure to drop low where I am suffering from low energy and dizzy spells. The next few days I am going to be unable to do a lot of online work.
At sundown tonight just an hour ago, began Asara B’Tevet (the 10th of Tevet) on the biblical calendar. Some jews fast on this day, some do not. It is a day of commemoration. The 10th of Tevet commemorates the beginning of the siege of Jerusalem by the Babylonians that led to the destruction of the first temple and the Babylonian exile. It is a day to stop and remember not just the punishment of a defiant generation but should serve as a warning to our current defiant generation that refuses to repent. It also commemorates the unknown victims of the holocaust. Yom HaShoah hebrew for Holocaust memorial day is after passover and commemorates all of the victims of the holocaust, both dead and survivors.
The 10th of Tevet we focus on the unknown victims of the holocaust. The people who literally vanished from this earth with no record or knowledge they ever existed. Roughly 2 million jews perished in the holocaust that no one knows their names, births, deaths or stories. It is specifically for those victims that we take this day (10th of Tevet) to either fast or remember the history of what happened. Many people will say kaddish for those 2 million that had no family members and no one to say kaddish for them.
Kaddish is the mourners prayer after the of the passing of a loved one. I will include the English translation of Kaddish for anyone jew or goyim that wishes to say kaddish for those victims. This is a short message because I have some things to do this evening at home. After the 10th of Tevet, shabbas (no work) will be beginning. Then on Sunday I have some meetings and things to attend too. Hopefully I will be back to normal by Monday or Tuesday. It is traditional to say the kaddish for those 2 million victims on the morning afternoon and evening of the 10th of Tevet with a group of people traditionally 10 men at a kaddish service. If you have no one to say kaddish with feel free to say kaddish alone as an act of respect to people who lost everything at the hands of an evil and ruthless political nut job.
The holocaust is mostly forgotten by most people. However some people still harbor that nazi hatred. Especially across Europe. The most recent anti-semitism and nazi spirit popped up on Romanian TV with people singing a so called christmas carol that glorified the holocaust and made it clear that the only good use for a jew is for fire kindling. Of course the way I repeated it made it sound nice. They are evil people with evil spirits. Please take this day (10th of Tevet) to bring light into this world of darkness and help extinguish that wicked nazi spirt by remembering those victims and honoring them in any way that you can.
Here is the link to that news story about the anti-semitic nazi christmas carol:
English Translation of Mourners Kaddish:
Glorified and sanctified be God’s great name throughout the world which He has created according to His will. May He establish His kingdom in your lifetime and during your days, and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon; and say, Amen.
May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.
Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored, adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be He, beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.
May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us
and for all Israel; and say, Amen.
He who creates peace in His celestial heights, may He create peace for us and for all Israel; and say, Amen.
