You have heard that HASHEM helps those who help themselves. I saw this advertisement on line. I thought that it would be BS like 90% of the ads. But I decided to listen. This one happens to be selling something but it is no BS. I noticed that Yoghourts have too much sugar until I found a brand in Israel without and no preservatives. I took down the link as it gave a formula for weight loss the natural way. Here I am busting my muscles and aerobics and not losing weight. This explains everything. I listened to the ingredients that the Dr. was selling for $49 and just then my wife called about a capsule for Menashe. I said buy one for him and one for me. My wife bought at the Israeli sick fund a month’s supply of two not three tablets a day of about the same thing perhaps minute the hunger root or perhaps with as I have not read the Hebrew. The green tea I have at home. The price is probably cheaper than the US price. Anyway, combined with my elliptical work-out and weights I hope to see something move if it really works. It may just save me from bariatric surgery that I was thinking of. http://3harmfulfoods.com/?tb=1
We left off last week with the counting of the Leviim. After which this week we have the Halachos for a Sotah, Nazir, the blessings of the Cohanim and the gifts of the Princes at the dedication of the Mishkan. This year due to time, I only cover the Sotah.
4:21 And the LORD spoke unto Moses saying: 22 'Take the sum of the sons of Gershon also, by their fathers' houses, by their families; 23 from thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shalt thou number them: all that enter in to wait upon the service, to do service in the tent of meeting.
Since in past blogspot on archive, I covered the counting of the Leviim in Bamidbar and Naso. I now turn attention to other things.
5:1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 2 'Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is unclean by the dead; 3 both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put them; that they defile not their camp, in the midst whereof I dwell.' 4 And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without the camp; as the LORD spoke unto Moses, so did the children of Israel.
The camp became purified for the setting up of the Mishkan and this explains how the lepers were outside of the camp during the famine in the time of Elisha HaNove.
This is the law that one should not trespass and use holy things but if done he has to pay an added 5th. If one does not give a hallowed thing like Teruma or Teruma Ma’aseh to the Cohain then he will end up before the Cohain with a wife whom he suspects of being a Sotah.
11 and the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 12 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: If any man's wife go aside, and act unfaithfully against him,
This week I took the time to read more than 16 commentaries on this Pasuk and the next and they covered a few folio pages. But when it came to remembering what I read, my mind was blank but I did get ideas of my own.
Should any man’s wife go astray: What is written above [i.e., before] this subject? “Everyone’s holy things belong to him.” If you withhold the gifts of the kohanim, then-by your life!-you will have to come to him to bring him an unfaithful wife. - [Ber. 63a] Any man: Heb. אִישׁ אִישׁ, lit. a man, a man. [The double expression] teaches that she has been doubly unfaithful-against [the Lord, who is known as] the Man (אִישׁ) of War on high (Exod. 15:3), and against her husband (אִישָׁהּ), lit., “her man”] below [in this world]. Should any man’s wife go astray: Heb. תִשְׂטֶה. Our Sages teach (Tanchuma Naso 5): Adulterers do not commit adultery unless a spirit of folly (שְׁטוּת) enters them, as it is written [here],“should go astray” [תִשְׂטֶה, can also mean to become a שׁוֹטֶה, i.e., to become “foolish”], and it is written, “One who commits adultery with a woman is devoid of sense” (Prov. 6:32) (Tanchuma Naso 5). The simple meaning of the verse is: “Should [any man’s wife] goes astray.” She deviates from modest ways, thus arousing his suspicion, as in [the verse],“turn away שְׂטֵה from it and pass” (Prov. 4:15), [and]“Let your heart not veer off יֵשְׂטְ into her ways” (Prov. 7:25). And deal treacherously with him: What is her treachery?
Rabbi Yacov London TzZal used to say this “a spirit of folly (שְׁטוּת) enters” to students who got out of line and implied that one who sins had to be Meshuga (crazy). His brother, Rabbi Yechiel used to say, “I don’t understand [how you could do this]”.
What can make a woman turn away from her husband. 1) Lack of attention 2) The husband is away across the sea and a rogue starts up with her. 3) The husband does not follow the Halacha about the time for the wife (ORNATA). 4) Our Sages have said about sin that forbidden fruits appear to be sweet. The solution is to remove the causes of this.
A woman should never ever feel trapped in a marriage and neither should a husband.
13 and a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, she being defiled secretly, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken in the act;
Just as some women find hairs, lipstick on the husband’s shirt, so too the husband sees a damp spot on his bed and he did not do anything the last night or the night before. The wife smiles to the green grocer or so and so and it is different from most men. The wife is seen talking with so and so. She goes to visit her friend on the block where a certain man lives and she chats too much with him. I bring down the Rashi below.
A man lie with her: This excludes a minor and a non-human [such as an animal]. — [Sotah 26b]
She will get the death penalty for bestiality. Also female upon female does not disqualify her but for a Cohain it is like prostitution and some forbid her husband.
With her carnally: Her intercourse disqualifies her, but her sister’s intercourse [with the husband] does not disqualify her [to her husband] (Yevamoth 95a), as in the account of two sisters who resembled each other. - [Tanchuma Naso 6] [See Levush, Nachalath Ya’akov]
Identical twins and in those days people had only one room and slept without clothing under their covers so it could happen. That is why about 1000 years ago, it became forbidden tor one to marry a woman with same name as his wife.
Tanchuma 7). It follows that, if he saw [the adulterous act] and ignored it, the water [prescribed further in the section] will not test her. — [Sifrei Naso 1:40]But it was hidden from her husband’s eyes: This excludes a blind man (Sotah 27a, Sifrei Naso 1:40,
For he was not really jealous. Also if he continued to have relations with her when he suspected her, the water does not test her. Lastly, if he too was unfaithful with somebody's wife or a forbidden relative, the waters would not test her.
But she was secluded: the amount [of time] it takes for one who is secluded [with a man] to be defiled by intercourse. - [Sifrei Naso 1:41, Sotah 2b, 4a]
The time to boil an egg which is approximately 5 minutes. This is why the door of the house is unlocked or left open. It once happened that I was at my Rosh Yeshiva's house with the Rebbitzen and somebody walked in from the street. I said, "Can I help you?" And he left immediately. It was obvious that he was looking to pocket something.
And there is no witness against her: But if there is even one witness against her who claims that she has been defiled, she does not drink [the water]. — [Sifrei Naso 1:41, Sotah 2b]
For if we know that she was defiled, then she gets a divorce. Or if two witnesses came but could not warn her or their testimony in the court was off. One said it was 2 PM and one said it was 5 PM or she had a green dress and the other a yellow dress or there was a quilt and the other a sheet. In each case we force a divorce on the couple.
And there is no witness against her: to the defilement, but there were witnesses to the seclusion. — [Sotah 2b] Seized: Heb. נִתְפָּשָׂה, raped, as in“seized her (וּתְפָשָׂהּ) and lay with her” (Deut. 22:28). - [Sifrei Naso 1:42]
If in the city she should have screamed for help and if in the country she screamed but nobody heard her.
14 and the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled; or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled;
The question is if the spirit of jealous creeps in and it is Tamay or Tahor. I will give you a true story of an example or two of Tamay. This story happened in Ashdod to a man who wore a Yarmulke and it was on Shabbos. A fellow named Benny Solomon began to get jealous of his wife. One Shabbos the blood went into his head and he murdered her and then committed suicide. I received details of this from another person named Benny Solomon who worked in the same factory and the press started calling up his house. The funny thing about this tragedy is that when the reporters called up my friend Benny, the asked the son about his father and he handed the phone to his father saying “Dad it’s for you!” Eventually, the calls stopped as he knew the other fellow.
The other involves two different foreign workers from Moldova. She worked taking care of my mother-in-law. Every time we sent her to pharmacy and her boyfriend called he demanded a cellphone picture of where she was. This went on for months upon months. Until she met a normal person ran off with him to Moldova and left the Jerk. Before the cellphones my colleague was dating an idiot who did the same. (She also worked with both the Benjamin Solomon fellows.) She may have saved her own life by stopping to date him.
The Shulchan Aruch speaks about an unfaithful wife. This would be a Ruach Tahor. Either there is one witness or two witnesses that see her pass by and then in the far distance they see her go off with a man into a house. Or the husband suspects that she is too friendly with so and so. The husband nowadays would want a divorce and the Beit Din might drag their feet and demand evidence or a witness or two. Even for the Beit Din one witness might not be enough for he could have been paid to testify for a quick divorce. Or the husband finds semen on the bed or the witnesses walk into the room and she is straightening up herself or saw semen on the sheets or smelled something.
15 then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is a meal-offering of jealousy, a meal-offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.
Although one can make Barley Bread and we put it in chutney, in the times of the Bible was more animal feed but as we see Ruth was so poor that she gathered this grain from Boaz.
16 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD. 17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water.
Holy water: which had been sanctified in the washstand. Because the washstand was made from the copper of the “mirrors of the women who had gathered” (Exod. 38:8) [at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting; see Rashi on that verse], whereas this one had abandoned their ways. They had intercourse with their husbands in Egypt “beneath the apple tree” (Song 8:5), whereas this one, who had corrupted herself with another [man]-let her be examined through it [the washstand]. - [Midrash Aggadah] In an earthen vessel: She gave the adulterer to drink choice wine in valuable goblets; therefore, let her drink bitter water in a worthless clay vessel. — [Sotah 9a]
18 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and let the hair of the woman's head go loose, and put the meal-offering of memorial in her hands, which is the meal-offering of jealousy; and the priest shall have in his hand the water of bitterness that causes the curse.
He tries to convince her to confess or abstain from drinking the water before the DIVINE NAME is erased from the scroll. After that she is basically stripped down by other women into a loin cloth and made to drink in public. The uncovering of the hair was just as embarrassing to the women as being almost nude as she ends up. She drinks and is jeered by the crowd.
19 And the priest shall cause her to swear, and shall say unto the woman: 'If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness, being under thy husband, be thou free from this water of bitterness that causes the curse; 20 but if thou hast gone aside, being under thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee besides thy husband-- 21 then the priest shall cause the woman to swear with the oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman--the LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to fall away, and thy belly to swell; 22 and this water that causes the curse shall go into thy bowels, and make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to fall away'; and the woman shall say: 'Amen, Amen.' 23 And the priest shall write these curses in a scroll, and he shall blot them out into the water of bitterness. 24 And he shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that causes the curse; and the water that causes the curse shall enter into her and become bitter. 25 And the priest shall take the meal-offering of jealousy out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the meal-offering before the LORD, and bring it unto the altar. 26 And the priest shall take a handful of the meal-offering, as the memorial-part thereof, and make it smoke upon the altar, and afterward shall make the woman drink the water. 27 And when he hath made her drink the water, then it shall come to pass, if she be defiled, and have acted unfaithfully against her husband, that the water that causes the curse shall enter into her and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall fall away; and the woman shall be a curse among her people.
As I have mentioned, the Chida just read this to a woman and as she left his home, as he was a Cohain, her stomach and thigh swelled and she died on the street.
28 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be cleared, and shall conceive seed.
Within a year. [Note if either he or she was promiscuous before the marriage, this does not work.]
29 This is the law of jealousy, when a wife, being under her husband, goes aside, and is defiled; 30 or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon a man, and he be jealous over his wife; then shall he set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law. 31 And the man shall be clear from iniquity, and that woman shall bear her iniquity.
6:1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying: 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: When either man or woman shall clearly utter a vow, the vow of a Nazirite, to consecrate himself unto the LORD, … 84 This was the dedication-offering of the altar, in the day when it was anointed, at the hands of the princes of Israel: twelve silver dishes, twelve silver basins, twelve golden pans; 85 each silver dish weighing a hundred and thirty shekels, and each basin seventy; all the silver of the vessels two thousand and four hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary; 86 twelve golden pans, full of incense, weighing ten shekels apiece, after the shekel of the sanctuary; all the gold of the pans a hundred and twenty shekels; 87 all the oxen for the burnt-offering twelve bullocks, the rams twelve, the he-lambs of the first year twelve, and their meal-offering; and the males of the goats for a sin-offering twelve; 88 and all the oxen for the sacrifice of peace-offerings twenty and four bullocks, the rams sixty, the he-goats sixty, the he-lambs of the first year sixty. This was the dedication-offering of the altar, after that it was anointed. 89 And when Moses went into the tent of meeting that He might speak with him, then he heard the Voice speaking unto him from above the ark-cover that was upon the ark of the testimony, from between the two cherubim; and He spoke unto him.
World War I a different world.
This brave Jewish Soldier saved an American Battalion in World War I. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/230244
Things weren’t looking good for the more than 500 Allied soldiers trapped by German forces in France’s Argonne Forest in November 1918. Not only were they under fire from the Germans, they also were being bombarded with shells from Americans who were unaware of their entrapment.
Food, water and ammunition were running low. The soldiers — dubbed the Lost Battalion — sent out messengers to make contact with the rest of the American forces, but none managed to bypass or survive the German line of fire.
That is until one Jewish soldier stepped forward. In honor of Memorial Day this Monday, we are retelling the story of that soldier, Abraham Krotoshinsky, with the help of the JTA archive and other historical materials.
“Our situation appeared and was desperate and hopeless,” recalled Krotoshinsky, a member of the 77th Division of New York’s 308th Infantry who volunteered to try to sneak past the Germans.
Here is Krotoshinsky’s account of the mission, published in the book “The Jew in the American World“:
Again a request was made for volunteers. I stepped forward. Another soldier with whom they sent me out was forced to return soon after. I continued alone. I started out at daybreak, but it did not take me long to be aware that I was a target for the Germans. I ran across an open space, down a valley and up a valley into some bushes. I remember crawling, lying under bushes, digging myself into holes. Somehow or other — I don’t know how to this day — I found myself at nightfall in German trenches. I saw several of them smoking cigarettes. I knew that if they knew of my visit the greetings they would have extended to me would not be any too friendly. I hid under some bushes, lying prone and acting dead. A German who, judging from the pressure, never knew anything about a reducing diet, stepped on one of my fingers, but I kept myself from making any outcry. Later I crawled into another deserted German trench. You can imagine the thrill I got when I heard good English words spoken. No music ever sounded better.
From there, Krotoshinsky relayed the situation to the American soldiers, who then stopped firing at his battalion and sent a relief squad with medical supplies and food.
Thanks to his bravery, 194 members of the original battalion were able to leave the Argonne Forest unharmed. The rest were killed, wounded or captured by the Germans.
Krotoshinsky was presented with the Distinguished Service Cross, the second highest U.S. military honor, by Gen. John J. “Black Jack” Pershing, who led American forces on the Western front in World War I.
Despite his gallantry, the Jewish soldier remained humble about his role in saving the Lost Battalion.“What I did, it seems to me, was nothing heroic, nothing deserving of all this fuss, and a stunt which I carried out because I wanted to, and had the next one been as lucky as I, he too would have been able to do it,” he said.
Abraham Krotoshinsky’s draft registration card (Wikimedia Commons)
Krotoshinsky was born in 1892 in Plotsk, which was then under Russian control but is now in Poland. After immigrating to New York in 1917, he found work as a barber before being called for Army service.
Krotoshinsky felt passionately about his new homeland.
“America, my adopted land, was always more precious to me than the land of my birth, in which I considered myself an alien and an outsider,” he wrote, citing anti-Semitism in Russia.
After the fighting he returned to New York, where he was celebrated as a war hero and became a naturalized U.S. citizen, according to the book “Good Americans: Italian and Jewish Immigrants During the First World War.”
With the help of the Jewish department store magnate Nathan Straus, he later followed his Zionist dreams and moved to Palestine, where he lived on a farm, married and had two children. Financial difficulties forced him to move back to the United States, where the war hero also struggled to make a living.
Things took a turn for the brighter, however, when a Harlem lawmaker, Rep. Fiorello LaGuardia, read about Krotoshinsky’s plight in a newspaper. In 1927, JTA reported that the future New York City mayor was so moved by the war hero’s situation that he lobbied for President Calvin Coolidge to issue an executive order so that Krotoshinsky could work as a postal clerk without having to go through the usual required examination.
“The salary was not announced, but it is understood that it will furnish a livelihood to the veteran and his family,” according to JTA.
Coolidge issued the order and Krotoshinsky stayed in the job until his death in 1953 at the age of 60.In 2001, the A&E network aired a made-for-TV film called “The Lost Battalion” featuring former child actor Ricky Schroder as battalion commander Maj. Charles White Whittlesey.
Thanks to Amy - From Caterpillar to Butterfly a Conversion Story: https://modestjerusalem.com/2017/05/29/my-caterpillar-to-butterfly-moment-my-jewish-birth/
Modest Jerusalem is launching a series of personal essays from friends and other women from Israel and around the world, who have inspirational stories covering a variety of topics.
Kicking off this series is a dear friend and former colleague of mine, Juli Kristof, who was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. She made Aliyah to Israel in 2011 and went through a Rabbinic Orthodox Conversion. Here she bravely opens up about this emotional and challenging journey to Judaism.
Juli currently lives in Givatayim with her husband and son Yonatan. Juli studied English Literature and currently works in Journalism and Social Media in both Hungarian and English..
I’m thinking of Sinai. I’m thinking about my Sinai – the mountain I climbed to get my Torah.
My mountain’s slopes began in Hungary. It looked terrifying – from down there – this whole journey, the confusing place of wanting something so much, that I was absolutely not supposed to have, the terrifying nature of what lay ahead. The end of the path that was covered in seemingly very stormy clouds.
I entered the Budapest shul the first time with deep trepidation but I could not stay away anymore. I felt like a young lamb lost in the woods at night. I thought I was going to be chased away. The rabbi will spot me during Kabbalat Shabbat and send me home because I’m not Jewish. Or well – not Jewish their way.
My work laptop hid in shame under a thick layer of coats in the cloakroom.
The rabbi really couldn’t sing and there was no cantor. Lecha Dodi still sounded like the sweetest tune in this freshly budding tiny post-Communist kehila. The mountain didn’t look so terrifying anymore.
And then again it did. “Are you Jewish?” – asked the rabbi one Tuesday afternoon via Facebook messenger. My blood froze. No. Yes. Somewhat. “That’s not enough.”
“Can I still come?”. “Sure, everybody is welcome.”
Next Kabbalat Shabbat an older, red headed lady helped me through the prayer. She smiled at me whenever she pointed out the right place in the siddur.
I have to do this, I thought. I have to do this – but not here. Israel.
I arrived just 5 months later. Two years after that I was in front of the Beit Din following a magical conversion process. “How could you become Jewish if your fellow countrymen murdered Jews during the Holocaust?” Their first question. Stormy clouds around me. Terrifying, bone shaking thunder. The top of the mountain is nowhere in sight.
“I think the terrifying thing about the Holocaust was that people, collectively accepted the fact that Jews are all evil. Doing the same with the people of a whole country is just as wrong.” The thunder is mind numbingly loud, the lightening seems life threatening.
“I like that answer”. Sudden quiet. It’s raining, lightly.
And then more questions – but these are about holidays and halacha. Piece of cake for someone as obsessed as me. You can see the mountain again – and there, behind the thinning clouds, is the summit. Clearly visible.
“We are happy to accept you into the Jewish people.” The head of the Beit Din is even smiling.
I’m in. Almost. So close. I get a date for the mikvah.
“So what’s your Jewish name going to be?” – asks the new, mikvah rabbi. Another Beit Din. I’m all clean and fresh in the Jerusalem morning, full of anticipation, joy and excitement. Waiting for a final, cathartic rainbow.
“Hagar,” I answer.
“We can’t let you get into the mikvah with that name.”
I call my rabbi, sobbing. “The Beit Din agreed to it, they listened to why I wanted it and agreed to it. The real Beit Din, at the Rabbinate.” He tries to calm me down, helps me choose another name. Tells me I can use whatever name I want once I’m out of there.
I’m still swallowing my tears as I put on the heavy and rigid mikvah clothes, in which I wade into the water – I dip, the rabbis come in and stare at me in my miserable condition. My caterpillar to butterfly moment. My Jewish birth.
The top of my Mount Sinai.
It takes me a year or two to make sense of it all. The magical process and the anticlimactic ending – or beginning.
And then I realize that this summit, the top, my “real Jewishness” is just that – the reality. The Jewish reality. It’s not pure, clean and constantly magical. It is messy and imperfect and full of ups and downs. Because this Jewishness – is me. It’s my life now. It’s an opportunity, it is unanswered questions – that I keep answering and changing my mind about them.
It’s a path I chose. As much as I didn’t choose conversion – I was driven to it and through it by something much larger and stronger than me. (Many times I tried to put a name to this force. But can it even be named? These names…).
I’m a real Jew today – not because of my picture perfect conversion. I am one, because my primary identity is not being a convert anymore. I’m owning my Judaism just like I own the fact, that my Jewish name is the name I was born with. A decision I made after years of struggling with my mikvah name. “Yonatan Yitzhak ben Juli”, I heard at my son’s brit and it felt right. I’m a Jew, because I choose my own path within this new realm I was admitted to – and because I thank Gd every day for leading me into it.
