Parsha Mishpatim, 2 Holocaust Heroes, Questions

This issue is dedicated to upcoming marriage of my oldest grandson may he and his wife build a loyal house in Israel the Parsha will be shorter this week.

I got back my AOL on Sunday. I was reading an AOL headline that a sports figure was benched which is a bad thing. In Judaism, which does not go looking for sports titles, the Rabbis taught was the realm of Esav. Rebbe, the codifier of the Mishnayos, was an intensive gymnastics figure. I go to the gym. However, in Judaism being benched (Yiddish for blessing) is wonderful if a person is “benched” by his Rabbi, Teacher, Parent or Cohain. If the husband benched his wife or vice versa what Shalom Beis a person has!

I am trying to find out if we need to pray for Eliyahu ben Aviva. As for now his status is eluding me so I am suspending prayers until I learn his status.

Parsha Mishpatim

Last week, Yisro advised Moshe to distribute the Halachic advice to the ignorant either for judgement or for just trying to be proper Bnei Yisrael. Since, even with the Decalogue there are not that many Mitzvos and laws comes the question that is what laws were hidden from us. This week, we shall learn some of them between man and man and one’s property causing a liability to a neighbor (examples - his slave, bull, or crop eating sheep).

21:1 Now these are the ordinances which thou shalt set before them. 2 If thou buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve; and in the seventh, he shall go out free for nothing. 3 If he come in by himself, he shall go out by himself; if he be married, then his wife shall go out with him.

If he was married to a free bas Yisrael. However, if he was a slave wife by his master-employer then he can purchase her or choose to be with the master after six years.

4 If his master give him a wife, and she bear him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself. 5 But if the servant shall plainly say: I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free; 6 then his master shall bring him unto God, and shall bring him to the door, or unto the door-post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him forever.

His right earlobe is bored as he heard on Sinai “I am the L-RD your G-D … you should not have any other (masters) before you.” Forever means until the Yovel aka Jubilee Year. The Torah wanted him to work and earn enough to purchase his wife and children. Since the Hebrew Servant did get some compensation for working six years, perhaps that was enough to free the woman. Now in addition but the Canaanite Slave or Servant was placed into the Mikvah upon becoming a slave, upon release they were free Israelites.

7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maid-servant, she shall not go out as the men-servants do. 8 If she please not her master, who hath espoused her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed; to sell her unto a foreign people he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her. 9 And if he espouse her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters. 10 If he take him another wife, her food, her raiment, and her conjugal rights, shall he not diminish. 11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out for nothing, without money.

The family might be dirt poor but they might have good genealogy. I once knew a Cohain family that had a large number of children and the father had a lowly job. They were quite poor. The children were dressed is second or third hand clothing. This could be the type of servant girl sold to the rich man for his daughter. It was not unusual to see a girl who was approximately kindergarten age as a “servant” to be trained and groomed by the woman of the house for the son upon reaching puberty. The girl would be released if the son did not want her or the master was not interested in marrying her. This would take place upon reaching puberty or at the age of 12 years and one day meaning her 12th birthday.

12 He that smite a man, so that he dies, shall surely be put to death.

This is the case of a man that was warned by two people to stop before he murders his fellow. However, if there were no witnesses or it just happened that he killed his fellow or it was self-defense the case becomes different and he might go to jail or free depending on the circumstances.

13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God cause it to come to hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he may flee.

He shall flee to one of the cities of refuge or Yerushalayim. That is accidental homicide such as he was carrying a brick upwards and it slipped out of his hand or his shovel or ax handle flee off killing his fellow.

14 And if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbor, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from Mine altar, that he may die. 15 And he that smites his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.

Interesting these two Pasukim with death penalties one next to the other. The first is a case of first-degree murder. The second is hitting a parent. The first is destroying the top of G-D’s creation. The second is going against one’s own physical version of a creator or rather a delegated authority from G-D. Perhaps as the Talmud states: Three participate in the creation of the child: 1) the father supplies the white 2) the mother supplies the red and 3) G-D supplies the holy Neshama.

16 And he that steals a man, and sells him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

Human trafficking.

17 And he that curses his father or his mother, shall surely be put to death.

This is more than what we call cuss or four letter words but with the NAME of G-D.

18 And if men contend, and one smite the other with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keep his bed; 19 if he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit; only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.

It comes out reading that the doctor will cure and from hear the Sages of blessed memory said that G-D gives permission to the doctors to cure...
At this point more damages are mentioned by one’s Ox or Sheep. The Rabbis start Baba Kama with the four types of damages. The moving damage which can trample or hit your property represented by the Ox. The obstacle represented by a pit in the middle of a path. Causing destruction by a fire or water damage and the Ox or Sheep that eats the crops. There are types of Oxen one is innoxious and one is noxious. Other things mentioned are cattle or sheep rustling. We learn for being caught rustling how much damage is paid.

19 The choicest first-fruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in its mother's milk.

One of my questions this week deals with employment in a store that cooks mile and meat. Our Parsha ends with Moshe up the Mountain for forty days and nights.

This week we start the 4 Parshiyos before Pessach. We start with Parsha Shekelim from Ki Sisa which is Shemos 30:11 – 16 about the paying of the half Shekel in the census. In the times when the Beis HaMikdash was active, the money was used for Temple repairs and the fixing of wells and roads leading to the Temple.

The Japanese Convert posted by Meir S. written by D. Sofer

One of World War II's most unusual heroes.

There were many guests crowded around beautifully set tables in Rabbi Chaim Shmulevitz's small apartment, located in the Mirrer Yeshivah in Jerusalem.
Rising to speak, Rav Chaim, the Mir's illustrious Rosh Yeshivah, warmly called out, “Dear Reb Avraham, may you merit to grow in Torah and fear of Heaven, in line with the aspirations of your pure heart! May you become a true son of Avraham Avinu, after whom you are now named.”
This was no bar-mitzvah celebration. The celebrant was Setzuso Kotsuji, a 60-year-old Japanese professor, who had recently been circumcised upon converting to Judaism, taking on the Hebrew name "Avraham."
“We will never forget what you did for us when we were in Japan,” Rav Chaim continued, “nor how you risked your life to save us. The merit of that self-sacrifice is what stood in your stead and led you to seek shelter under the wings of the Shechina [the Divine Presence] and to become a genuine member of the Nation you helped so much.”
Setzuso Kotsuji was born in 1900 into an aristocratic Japanese family. His father, who himself was a prominent Shinto priest, descended from a long-line of well-known priests.
Kiyoto, Setzuso's birthplace, was the center of the Shinto religion. His father hoped that Setzuso would naturally follow the family tradition and study for the priesthood.
Setzuso instead embarked on an epic search for truth. When he was 13, he visited an antique bookshop in which he discovered a Tanach, the Hebrew Bible, which had been translated into Japanese. Thirstily, he devoured that sacred work and learned about monotheism. Realizing that this was the truth, he slowly began to veer away from the polytheistic Shinto religion. In the end, he stopped attending the Shinto temple altogether and searched for someone to teach him more about Judaism.
After his marriage, Setzuso's search for the truth brought him to the United States, where he began to study Tanach and Hebrew in an American university. When he returned to Japan with a doctorate in Hebrew and Judaic studies, he continued to broaden his knowledge of these subjects.
In 1937, he published his first book in Japanese on Hebrew language and grammar. At that time, he also founded the Tanach and Hebrew Department at the Tokyo University. This department attracted many non-Jewish students and, quite rapidly, Professor Kotsuji gained acclaim in Japan as a scholar and thinker of repute. He was also highly esteemed in government circles, where he made many friends. He would subsequently utilize these connections to help the Jewish refugees who were to arrive to Japan. Prof. Kotsuji published other studies on Judaism, Tanach and Hebrew.
At that time, various Japanese researchers published studies which linked the Japanese nation to the Ten Lost Tribes exiled by Sancheriv. These erroneous claims evoked a wave of interest in Judaism among Japan's intelligentsia and Prof. Kotsuji's books became widely read.
During his studies in the United States, Prof. Kotsuji had not encountered Torah-observant Jews. He first met such Jews in Charbin, the capital of Manchuria, where a large community of former Russian Jews had existed since 1890. When Manchuria was conquered by Japan, the Japanese emperor invited Prof. Kotsuji to serve as his Jewish Affairs Advisor. Prof. Kotsuji accepted this offer and moved to Charbin, where he remained for a few years. While there, the professor formed warm relationships with its Jewish community and its chief rabbi, Rabbi Moshe Aharon Kiskilov.
Prof. Kotsuji's friendship and admiration for the Jewish people reached a peak in 1941, when the Jewish refugees of the Holocaust began to stream to Japan in search of a haven.
When the Mirrer Yeshivah arrived in the Japanese city of Kobe, Prof. Kotsuji went there to familiarize himself with the Torah world. In Kobe, he became very close with the Mir's illustrious rabbis and students, whose refinement and nobility of spirit had a profound impact on him.
The permits which the Jewish refugees had received to enter Japan were only transfer visas, meant to expire within two weeks of their arrival there. Although the Japanese authorities extended these visas a number of times, after a while there was pressure exerted upon the yeshiva to leave Japan and continue to their “destination” -- which was, of course, non-existent since they had nowhere else to go.
For purely humanitarian reasons, Prof. Kotsuji became involved in the refugees' problems and made vigorous efforts to have their visas extended. To achieve this, he utilized his friendship with Japan's Foreign Affairs minister. When top ranking members of Kobe's police force opposed the extension of these visas, Professor Kotsuji bribed them with vast sums of money, which he borrowed from his wealthy brother-in-law, and repaid himself.
As a result of Prof. Kotsuji's intervention, the Japanese authorities agreed to extend the refugees' visas several times, letting them stay for eight months instead of the original two-week period. Later, when the Japanese decided to banish the Jews from Japan, they did not expel them completely but instead deported them to Shanghai, China, which was under Japanese rule.
As more and more Jewish refugees streamed into Japan, anti-Semitic sentiment increased. This was because Germany, Japan's ally, attempted to persuade Japan to expel its Jews. This poisonous anti-Semitic propaganda flooded the Japanese media and revolting caricatures of Jews were plastered all over the Japanese newspapers. In 1941, the eve of Japan's war against the United States, Japan and Germany became even closer and anti-Semitism intensified. High-ranking Japanese leaders began to publicly blame the Jews for both World Wars, claiming that wherever Jews go, they spread havoc.
Prof. Kotsuji countered these accusations and waged a vigorous and brave battle against this anti- Semitic incitement. Determined to portray the Jews to the Japanese in a positive light, he published a book, called "The True Character of the Jewish Nation," in which he exploded all of the German myths and lies about the Jews, and portrayed the Jewish people as a highly ethical, righteous nation.
Prof. Kotsuji traveled throughout Japan, delivering lectures that praised the Jewish people and refuted the lies of her enemies. He even appealed to the Japanese to assist the Jews, declaring, “Divine Providence has brought thousands of unfortunate refugees to our shores, so that we should help them and grant them a safe haven, where they will find peace and tranquility. This is our mission in life. Let us not betray it.”
Prof. Kotsuji practiced what he preached, and much of the humane treatment the Japanese accorded the Jewish refugees may be attributed to his efforts. When a delegation comprising the leaders of the Jewish refugees, headed by the Amshinover Rebbe and Rabbi Moshe Shatzkes, met with Japanese government representatives in Tokyo, they were greatly aided by Prof. Kotsuji who acted as their mediator and translator. As a result of his intervention, the Japanese improved their attitude toward the Jewish refugees and withstood Germany's pressure to banish the Jews from Japan, at least temporarily.
In 1941, when the Japanese government changed its attitude and banished the Jewish refugees to Shanghai, he continued to maintain warm and active ties with the Jews. Even though Japan was relatively empty of Jews at that time, he still delivered lectures on the positive contributions of the Jewish people. However, such activity was particular risky since the Japanese government was led by a pro-Nazi nationalist group which wrathfully persecuted all of its opponents. But this did not deter Prof. Kotsuji, who spoke out against the Nazis nonetheless. When the publisher of his book asked him to delete the denouncements of the Nazis, Prof. Kotsuji refused.
Many warned Prof. Kotsuji that he was risking his life by publishing such material and delivering his lectures. But the courageous professor paid no attention to them. Towards the end of 1942, the Japanese Bureau of Investigation began to believe the German reports that Jewish subversives were planning to gain control of the world, and they accused Prof. Kotsuji of abetting Japan's enemies, the Jews.
Prof. Kotsuji was arrested and interrogated under torture, in which his interrogators demanded that he reveal his role in the plot. When he said that there was no such group of Jewish subversives, and that it was all a figment of the imaginations of the anti-Semites, he was further tortured to the point that his life was in danger.
Then a miracle occurred. At the peak of the interrogation, a high-ranking Japanese colonel who knew Prof. Kotsuji very well, visited the prison where the professor was being held. The colonel was startled to see the scholarly professor, one of Japan's most respected academics, incarcerated on blatantly false charges and locked up with criminals. Immediately, the colonel demanded that Prof. Kotsuji be released, and that all of the charges against him be dropped.
This incident heightened Prof. Kotsuji's already strong belief in God.
After the war was over, the Jewish refugees who had left the Far East remained in close contact with Prof. Kotsuji. When the American army arrived in Japan, Prof. Kotsuji became friendly with its chaplain, the observant Rabbi Mental, who taught him more about Judaism.
A few years later, Prof. Kotsuji finished his translation of The Song of Songs, a project which enabled him to better understand the relationship between God and the Jewish people.
Prof. Kotsuji continued to correspond with his friends from the Kobe period - the sages of the Mirrer Yeshivah. When he felt that he was ready to lead a fully observant life, he informed these friends that he would be coming to Jerusalem to convert.
In1959, the 60-year-old Professor Setzuso Kotsuji was warmly welcomed to the Jewish faith by his friends from the Mir and named Avraham ben Avraham Kotsuji.
Professor Avraham Kotsuji spent the final years of his life in a religious community in Brooklyn. During that period, he was ill and penniless. The heads of the Mirrer Yeshivah formed a special committee which rallied to his aid and raised money to support him.
Professor Kotsuji passed away on the 5th of Cheshvan, 5734/1974, in the United States. In accordance with his will, his was buried in Jerusalem's Har HaMenuchos cemetery. His funeral was attended by a large throng of leading rabbis, communal leaders and students of the Mirrer Yeshivah.
Avraham ben Avraham Kotsuji will go down in history first as one of the world's most outstanding righteous gentiles, and then as one of Jewry's most outstanding converts. His total dedication to the Jewish people and his willingness to risk his life for them is an everlasting source of inspiration and a pure Kiddush Hashem.
May his name be blessed forever.

The Jew who saved hundreds of Jews from the Nazis (photos in link)
By Liron Cohen

Enzo Cavaglion was in his early 20s when he fought Nazis and fascists as part of an Italian partisan group; together with his brother, Riccardo, he helped more than 1,000 Jews who sought refuge in villages around the northern Italian city of Cuneo, putting his own life at risk. Now, at the age of 98, he is honored with the Jewish Rescuers Citation, which aims to correct the misconception that Jews didn’t rescue fellow Jews during the Holocaust.

At the age of 98, about 75 years after saving the lives of hundreds Jewish refugees in northern Italy during the German occupation, Enzo Cavaglion has been officially honored with the Jewish Rescuers Citation. The citation was presented to him last week in the country where he was born, lived all his life, fought the Nazis and saved fellow Jews.

Cavaglion helped more than 1,000 Jewish refugees who had sought refuge after fleeing the remote Italian-occupied French Alpine village of Saint-Martin-Vesubie in the face of the German army that invaded the area following the announcement of the armistice signed between Italy and the Allies.

Enzo Cavaglion receives the citation from Alan Schneider. Proud and excited

The Jewish Rescuers Citation, which he received on January 21 from B'nai B'rith World Center-Jerusalem and the Committee to Recognize the Heroism of Jews who Rescued Fellow Jews During the Holocaust, has been presented in an effort to correct the public misconception that Jews did not rescue fellow Jews during the Holocaust.

Cavaglion, who was in his 20s at the time, was one of the 14 founding members of partisan group “Italia Libera” (Free Italy), led by anti-Fascist lawyer Duccio Galimberti, which was established on September 12, 1943—the same day that Cuneo, Italy was occupied by the German First SS Panzer Division.

They group members ensconced themselves in the sanctuary of the Madonna del Colletto, 18 kilometers to the west of Cuneo. Enzo and his younger brother, Riccardo Cavaglion, stayed with the group until October 1943, when they had to leave to help their own families escape arrest in Cuneo.

A daring theft of identity cards from mayor’s office

In addition to the combat they waged against the Germans and Italian fascists, Enzo and Riccardo also helped Jews who sought refuge in villages around Cuneo, putting their own lives at risk.

Men, women, children, the elderly and disabled scaled the Maritime Alps over the international border into Italy in a harrowing ordeal, only to find the Germans already roaming the area. About 300 people were captured and sent to Auschwitz. The remaining 700 found refuge among the welcoming local peasant population. Enzo and Riccardo found hiding places for them, furnished them with the necessary documents and hid them in the mountains in order to evade the Nazis.

Holocaust Survivor Harry Burger credited Enzo and Riccardo with saving his life and his mother’s life by warning them that the Nazis were hunting for them.
Survivor Alfred Feldman wrote in his memoir, “One Step Ahead: A Jewish Fugitive in Hitler’s Europe,” that he witnessed a daring theft of identity cards by Enzo and Riccardo from the mayor’s office in Vignolo, Italy, that were then falsified and distributed to some of the refugees. Enzo performed all of these activities despite the additional danger he faced as a result.

Nearly 200 Jews have been honored

The citation was presented to Cavaglion in his home, and the event was followed by a ceremony at the Cuneo synagogue. Speakers included Enzo’s son, Dr. Alberto Cavaglion, and B'nai B'rith World Center Director Alan Schneider.

“It’s a privilege to award you with the Jewish Rescuers Citation, continuing our 20-year effort to correct the historical narrative that Jews did not work to rescue other Jews during the Holocaust,” Schneider told Cavaglion.

Enzo said he was proud and excited to receive the citation. He had tears in his eyes as he remembered the Jews he had met and helped on the Italian side. After the war, Cavaglion remained in Italy, where he and his brother Riccardo owned a carpet store for many years.

Since its establishment in 2011, nearly 200 heroes have been honored with the Jewish Rescuers Citation for rescue activities in Germany, France, Hungary, Greece, Slovakia, Yugoslavia, Russia, Lithuania, Poland, Holland and now Italy.

 I received a number of questions recently.
Question: Three times the Torah writes about the prohibition of cooking milk and meat together. I work in a fast food place. I do not cook milk and milk together but for the burritos, I mix cold the meat and the milk and pass it on to the cook. Is this permitted? I work in a predominately non-Jewish area (black ghetto). Am I allowed to serve the people the burritos? Another case would be somebody owning shares of a fast food storm chain like Wendy’s, Mac Donald’s or Burger King? Or owning funds that invest in these stores?

The answer is not the easiest to answer. For the person asking is telling me that a job is needed to make ends meet and put food on the table or pay the rent. Now we all know that employment comes from HASHEM. But what if the only job available is that working in a Trafe Restaurant but not disturbing Shabbos or Yom Tov? I personally would try to avoid such employment and even look for a lesser source for my personal honor like working for a sewer cleaning company even.

Is there a Hetir for such a person? So let us see that when we put into a garbage bin we are mixing milk and meat. We do not cook the milk and meat together. If we are certain that in the end delivery or waiting upon is with non-Jews then there is no problem. With the investment one is having a billionth part or a millionth part of the company, which could just as easily go to the kosher branches in Modiin, Yerushalayim, and other places. Since there are profits derived from coffee, lemonade, soda and salads and not necessarily cheese burgers or other items with meat and cheese together.

A Question was asked: Should I sell my stocks after the panic of the last few sessions?
To answer that one has to see if he/she is in for a long or short term in the market. But also analyze the situation in depth as a Rabbi should analyze a Halachic question.
January was an exceptionally good month and it appears as though those gains were largely "given back" yesterday (5.2.18). The S&P 500 is now just a little below its 31 December 2017 level. Why is this happening?
1.   Markets tend to panic.
2.   The possibility of the new Fed Chairman being tested by markets.
3.   Big price moves may indicate heavy computer driven trading.
4.   The market was high and primed for a quick sell off, especially after January's gains.
5.   Significant short positions on the VIX (volatility index). If you are the investor figure this out yourself after you analyse the positions like a Rabbi does.

Tuesday evening, my oldest granddaughter came home from her Nationwide Israeli Tax adviser test. Right in front of her, an eight-year-old boy ran from behind the bus to pass over the street right in front of a car going at high speed. He never stood a chance. He was trapped under the wheels, given artificial respiration, rushed to the hospital but no efforts of the paramedics and doctors could bring back his holy soul into his body. The biggest killer in Israel is not the wars but traffic accidents. “During time of war, the Angel of Death has the right of way in the middle of the road.” – Baba Kama 60B.

From the time of Avraham or perhaps Adam: We do not know the name of the astronomer. Nor do we know precisely when, where, or how the discovery was made. But we do know that, 2½ millennia ago, a Babylonian astronomer realized that eclipses come in cycles that are 6,585 days long. Today, Babylon — once the largest city in the world — lies in ruins. But the eclipse cycles, which we call the saros, continue to beat their slow, relentless rhythm.

This past week was underscored by missionaries following in the footsteps of the Reform and trying to get a special place at the Kotel. The Yetzer has a constant war on Torah.

Last but not least, I got a question from a young lady. How do I start learning Judaism I am in a place without too many Jews. The answer comes from Perkei Avos and Devarim (Deut.) 30:14 It is close unto you and not across the sea to do it. I told her read my blogspot which has Torah and stories of Jews that will give you an idea what Judaism is about.
