“To Share and Share Alike”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

By

The King of Babylon was named ‘Nebuchadnezzar.’ He was a very powerful man and the army he commanded was strong. The day came when he decided to attack Jerusalem. He and his army captured many of the elders. Although they had become prisoners and slaves of the ‘Babylonians,’ they were allowed to keep on worshipping the Lord God Jehovah.

God spoke to a prophet named ‘Jeremiah.’ He told him to send a message to the captives in ‘Babylon.’ The message reads:

“Live Peacefully in Babylon. You and your children will stay there for many years and then I will lead your people home again.”

The King of Judah at that time was called ‘Zedekiah.’ At first, he listened to the words of Jeremiah and did not make war on Babylon. Jeremiah told him that if he attacked Babylon, terrible things would happen to him, his family, and his people.

After some time had passed, he became angry with the prophet’s words. He thought he was powerful enough to go up against the Babylonians. He had Jeremiah arrested and thrown into a dungeon. The foolish king did plan to leave him there until he died. Unsurprisingly, the dungeon was a nasty and terrible place. There was no floor except for the dirt, rock and in some places; very deep mud. This was truly a deep and dangerous place. Jeremiah became stuck in one of the mud patches and began to sink. Fortunately for him, one of the king’s soldiers believed in Jeremiah’s words. He tossed him down a rope and hauled Jeremiah to safety from the sinking mud. He then found him a dry place in the dungeon where there was no mud to sink him.

Jeremiah predicted the Babylonian army would conquer the army of Judah. It did come to pass. With this defeat, King Zedekiah was blinded by the Babylonian soldiers, but before he lost his sight he was forced to watch them kill his sons!

Jeremiah was allowed to remain in Jerusalem once he was released from the dungeon. The Babylonians burned the city, took all the treasures, and made all of the rich people their slaves. Jeremiah decided to stay with the poor people. They were the only ones left. It was the final battle for the land of Judah – the country had been destroyed.

Hezekiah’s son, Manasseh was not a good king. When Hezekiah died, his twelve-year-old son became the new king. He urged his people to worship the idols his father had destroyed. He had them worship the sun, the moon, the stars and even the false god ‘Baal!

God sent prophets to warn Manasseh, but they went unheeded and ignored. So God allowed the Assyrian army to capture Manasseh. They chained him and took him to the land of Babylon.

Finally, Manasseh realized the power of God. He prayed to the Lord and asked to be able to escape. God answered his prayer and allowed him to return to Jerusalem, promising to only believe in the One, True God.

He ordered the temples and altars of Baal destroyed. He also ordered the people of Judah to only pray to the Lord God Jehovah.

When Manasseh died, his son Amon became the new king. He also made sure that all of the idols of false gods such as Baal were destroyed, and have the people pray only to the Lord God Jehovah. The only problem with Amon was that he did not go far enough. Although he wanted his people to be good, he himself was not. He led a wicked and sinful life. Finally, some of his own generals assassinated him and declared Josiah, his eight-year-old son to be the new king.

Josiah wanted to be a good king. He wanted to be like the great King David. He spent much of his time searching for the God of his ancestors. When he was twenty he would personally supervise the destruction of the temples of Baal still standing in different cities. He set up a collection system in the temples of God to collect money to rebuild other temples. He put the High Priest Hilkiah in charge of collecting the donations.

One day, an excited workman came running to Hilkiah. While they were repairing an old temple, the workman had come across an ancient scroll! When they read it, they realized what it was. It was a lost scroll the listed all of the laws God had given to Moses!

The scroll was delivered to the king. Eagerly, King Josiah read the scroll. When he finished, he was so upset. The people had forgotten so many of God’s laws. So many of them were indeed sinful and wicked!

“Quickly,” the king said to his personal servants. “Let us go to the ‘Temple’ and pray to the Lord! We have to ask him to forgive us for forgetting so many of His Laws.”

God heard the King’s Prayers. He spoke to a prophetess named ‘Huldah’ who gave this message to the king:

“The Lord says because you were sorry for what your people have done, He will not send evil to them.”

Josiah called together all of the elders and priests. He read the lost scroll to them. He then passed a law saying only the worship of the Lord God Jehovah was permitted in this land. All idols were destroyed and for the rest of Josiah’s life, the people followed the laws of God.

A servant of King Ahab’s was known as ‘Obadiah.’ Even though he worked for the king and the evil Queen Jezebel, he still loved the Lord God Jehovah. He had once hidden prophets from the queen’s soldiers when she was trying to kill them all.

While he was out doing some errands for the king, Obadiah saw Elijah walking towards him.

“Go tell Ahab that I am coming to see him,” the prophet told him.

Obadiah was afraid the king would kill him if he returned with such news, but Elijah said the Lord would protect him from harm.

With that in mind, Obadiah went and told King Ahab that Elijah was coming to see him. Ahab did not kill Obadiah. Instead, he went out to meet with Elijah. The king said to Elijah, “So, it’s you, the man who brought disaster on all of Israel!”

Ahab believed in a different god named Baal. The followers of Elijah worshipped the Lord God Jehovah. Ahab wanted to bring all of his people together in the worshipping of Baal instead of the One, True God.

“It is you who are bringing disaster to Israel fool,” said Elijah to Ahab, “because you are making the people worship Baal!”

Ahab challenged Elijah and his God to a contest. Ahab ordered over 800 followers of Baal to gather on the top of Mount Carmel. He was going to show Elijah how powerful the god Baal really was.

Early the next morning, Elijah stepped out in front of the followers of Baal. He stood there until the crowd became silent.

“I am the only prophet of the Lord that is left. You all number over 800! Now watch! I have brought pieces of meat to sacrifice on two altars. I will place wood under both altars. I will pray to the Lord God Jehovah to light the fire under one altar and all of you pray to Baal to light the other. Then we shall see who the One True God is!”

The followers of Baal agreed and began praying. Around noon, when nothing had happened, Elijah said to them, “You’ll have to shout louder than that for Baal to hear you. Where is he?”

The followers of Baal prayed loudly all afternoon. They prayed loudly all through the evening. Nothing happened. Some of them even cut themselves with their knives and swords, giving some of their own blood to Baal. Nothing happened.

Finally, Elijah told the followers of Baal to gather round his altar. They watched as he dug a ditch around the altar and the meat. They watched as he poured water over the altar and the meat until it overflowed and filled the ditch. How, they asked themselves, could a fire start with everything so wet and soggy?

Then Elijah prayed to God. He said, “Lord! Answer me so these people will know you are the One True God!” Suddenly, fire flashed down from the heavens! It burned the meat and melted the altar. It turned the water in the ditch to steam.

 When the people saw this they bowed down and said, “Jehovah is God! Jehovah is God!” The people then captured and killed all of the prophets of Baal. When Elijah saw this, he went to the top of the mountain and prayed to God. He sent a messenger to Ahab to tell him to prepare for a rainstorm. Sure enough, for the first time in three years, it began to rain again in the world.

David and his six hundred men were marching with the Philistines. They were gathered at the rear with King Achish. The Philistine officers did not like having David and his men in their army. David and his men were Israelites. They were the enemy as far as the Philistine officers were concerned. They were afraid that, in the heat of battle, David and his men would side with the Israelites. The Philistine officers came to King Achish and demanded the disbandment of the troop.

“Send the Israelites away! We don’t want them in our army!”

King Achish went to David and sadly said, “You and your men are some of the finest soldiers I have ever known, but you cannot fight alongside of our soldiers. My soldiers will not fight. They will not go into battle with you and yours.

David was very disappointed. He did however, understand the king’s position. He and his men marched back to the city of ‘Ziklag’ where they had been living with their families. Reaching the city, David and his men were horrified. The city was in ruins! While they were away, a tribe of ‘Amalekites’ attacked the city. The bandits had carried away all of their women and children!

 David prayed to the Lord. “Tell me Lord,” he said, “If we go after the Amalekites, will we be successful?”

“Yes!” answered the Lord. “If you go after them, you will recover all that has been taken away from you.”

So David and his six hundred men went after the Amalekites. For three days they searched for them with very little success. Then, alongside of a road, David found a young boy who was almost starving. He was unfamiliar to David. “Who are you?” he asked the strange youngster while handing him food.

“I am an Egyptian,” said the boy. “I was the slave of an Amalekite, but he left me behind because I was sick and could not travel.

 Suddenly, David knew that the Lord had sent this boy to him. “Do you know where the Amalekites went? Do you know where they are going?” asked David in desperation.

“Yes!” said the boy. “And if you promise me in the Good Lord’s name, that you will not kill me or return me to my former master, I will tell you!”

David promised and the boy led them to the secret Amalekite encampment. That night, David’s army attacked. They killed all of the Amalekites and rescued their own wives and children. They recovered everything that had been stolen from them. They also found many valuable treasures the Amalekites had horded on their many years of raiding other villages, towns, and villages.

David shared the new wealth with everyone, both the soldiers who did the fighting with those who stood guard. “Share and Share Alike!” said David. Later, when David later became king, Sharing Became the Law of the Land.

Have We, You, practiced and kept the ‘Covenant With The Lord Our God?’ If you haven’t, will you? Have you practiced love for your Brothers and Sisters? Where do we stand as a people? Have we been following the “Laws of The Lord God?” Do we truly share in the wealth of the land as a people? How has the reigning governing bodies included ‘We The People’ to share in the lawmaking and peacekeeping decisions over the lands and throughout the world? …Have they, will they change their evil ways and practice what is right? Will they, we, follow the order of “Shared and Shared Alike?”

Good Shabbos_7.31.15
Welcome to the Kollel Connection.
We appreciate your comments and feedback.
.
Welcome to the Kollel Connection. The Kollel Connection this week is dedicated in honor of our great SEED boys, who have come to join our community during their vacation time, to provide inspiration and Torah knowledge to the people in our area.

This week we read Parshas Veshchanan. In the Parsha, Moses told the people “You should keep the decrees and mitzvahs of Hashem, that I have commanded you today, in order that good will befall you and your children after you…” (Deuteronomy 4:40) The Dubno Magid explains the end of this verse, how Moses was trying to arouse the people to observe the commandments of the Torah, with a beautiful parable:

There was once a trustworthy servant, who took care of all of his masters needs completely. One day his master told him, “Take this long list of items, and buy every single item on the list”. The servant heard this command, and began to sigh in despair, as the very thought of trying to carry this huge list back from the market to his masters’ house on his back, seemed to be totally overwhelming. As he brought the huge list of items to his masters’ house, he asked his master "Where should I put down all the packages"? His master answered him, "This entire load is a gift for you in gratitude for all your hard work. Bring them to your own house". When the servant heard that, the load felt much lighter and easier to carry. In fact, his only groaning now was that he wished the list would have been bigger!

This is what Moses was telling the people. Sometimes you may feel overwhelmed, as if the Torah and the commandments are a burden that is too hard to carry. When that feeling comes to mind, we have to remind ourselves of these two words. "Ltov Lach!" All the mitzvohs that we have are for our benefit!!! Every time we do them, we become better people, we become closer to Hashem, and we earn eternal reward whose pleasure is beyond comprehension.

Wishing you and your family a Great Shabbos!!!!!!!!

Amos #Chapter8
King James Version (KJV)

8 Thus hath the Lord God shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.

2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the Lord unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.

3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord God: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence.

4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,

5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?

6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?

7 The Lord hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.

8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.

9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:

10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.

11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:

12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.

13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.

14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.

"I Am Black!"

They continue to portray 'Him' as white in a white ruled world by displaying paintings and new statue dedications. It is a lie!
For "I am that I am, I am what I am!""

..."I am Black!" All of mankind has arisen 'Out Of Africa!'"

"Saying that I am Alpha and Omega the first and the last: and, what thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea."

And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; and His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.

And He had in His right hand seven stars; and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and His countenance was as the Sun shineith in His strength.

"Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail!"

/*
'Shabbat Shalom':

Amos Chapter8
King James Version (KJV)

8 Thus hath the Lord God shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.

2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the Lord unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.

3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord God: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence.

4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,

5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?

6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?

7 The Lord hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.

8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.

9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:

10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.

11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:

12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.

13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.

14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.

King James Version (KJV)
>
Amos Chapter9:
Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the Lord. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?

For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.

All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.

That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the Lord that doeth this.

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.

And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God.

King James Version (KJV)
>
Revelation 19:11King James Version (KJV)

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
>
Acts 16:25-34King James Version (KJV)

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.

27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.

28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.

29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

31 And they said, Believe on the Lord
Yahawashi Ha Mashayach, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

King James Version (KJV)

The Moral Of This Beautiful Story Is The Most High Delivers The Believers (#Israelites) That Believe In His Word And The Those Who BareWitness To The Testimony Of Yahawashi (#BelieversInHisSon).....Selah And Have A Peaceful And Blessed Shabbat Shalom ......

Ya’ateeh, As Salaam Alaikum, Shalom, Hotep, and Hola!
...Here is another piece of Words of Wisdom for your spiritual pallet.

Good Shabbos_ 8.21.15
Welcome to the Kollel Connection.
We appreciate your comments and feedback.
.
Welcome to the Kollel Connection. The Kollel Connection this week is dedicated in honor of our great SEED boys, who have come to join our community during their vacation time, to provide inspiration and Torah knowledge to the Jewish people in our area.
This week we read Parshas Shoftim. In the Parsha, one of the laws that the Torah tells us is not to plant an ashaira tree, (that is a tree that was worshipped as a form of idolatry), near the alter of Hashem. (Deuteronomy 16:21) Right before this, the Torah discusses the prohibitions of taking a bribe, and the obligation to judge honestly.

The Talmud explains that the reason these two laws are connected, is to teach us that the sin of appointing an unqualified judge to a court, is equal to the sin of planting an ashaira tree near the alter. This statement sounds very puzzling: what is the connection between planting an ashaira tree and appointing an unqualified judge? The two prohibitions would seem to have nothing to do with each other?

Rav Chaim Soloveitchick explains that the ashaira tree carries with it a danger that is worse than all other forms of idolatry. When a person sees an idol, he or she recognizes this for what it is: this is a false deity that is used to mislead people and take them astray from Hashem. However, when he or she sees an ashaira tree it looks harmless. They have no thought in their mind that this may represent an idol. This can be dangerous, as the person’s guard is lifted, and the temptations to join others who serve it are brought about. In this way an ashaira tree is more dangerous than other types of idolatry. The same is true about a judge who is unqualified. He may look just as knowledgeable and caring as a good judge on the outside, but inside he is corrupt and rotten. He can easily mislead people and cause tremendous damage by those who follow his ways.

Unfortunately, in our times, we see this on a daily basis. People who look distinguished and important, people who portray themselves as being caring and knowledgeable, mislead people totally. Whether the issues are abortions, gay rights, keeping kosher, using a mikvah, or observing Shabbos, … men or women that claim to have knowledge of the Torah’s laws teach people to trample upon the most basic values and laws of our tradition. Those who abide by the Torah’s rules are portrayed to be archaic, foolish, and primitive. These leaders and Rabbis are nothing less than an ashaira tree in a new shape and form. We must know better than to follow their directions and their ideas. If we can avoid being misled by them, we can find true Torah values, true direction in life, and a true connection to Hashem.

Wishing you and your family a Great Shabbos!
