Short thought



See, I give you today a blessing and a curse (11:26)

See, I give you today the blessing and its transmutation.

(Yonatan ben Uziel’s [Aramaic] translation of the verse)

“See” — Moses is giving the Children of Israel the power of sight — to perceive that the true nature of evil is nothing more than a transmutation and distortion of the Divine good. When evil is thus seen, it can be transformed into the good that it essentially is.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)









In an all-Jewish school, a Russian man decided to disrupt a math class.

He stormed in and cried, “You Jews think you’re so smart, try and answer this! There are seven trains going all around the country with sixteen cars on each train. There are thirty-three people on each car. How old am I?”

No one responds. A boy in the back stands up and says, “48.”

Amazed, the Russian says “Yes! How did you know?”

The boy replied, “There’s a man in our village that’s twenty-four and is only half meshugah.”


Moshiach and the future Redemption

The prophet Ezekiel (chapters 38-39) describes a climactic battle that will be instigated by Gog and/of Magog, and will be waged against Israel and G-d. The defeat of Gog and Magog will precipitate the Messianic Redemption.
