Hooray! Ger is here to stay.
Ger is not going away. What good does it do to poison the minds of some fringe rabbis about Ger and about Katz and Clorfene and Kirk?
Right now, between the U.S. and Texas, Guatemala, Mexico, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, the Philippines, Australia, Norway, England, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Canada, Germany, Romania, Poland, Russia, and India, there are an estimated 26,500 non-Jewish Ger, G-d fearing, mitzvah loving, companions of Israel, all of whom have come to the Torah and have been accepted by G-d as the fourth estate of Israel. And the number is growing every day. And it cannot be stopped. All
Going from chaos to perfection.
I posted the following article on April 23, 2017. I am posting it again because it is more relevant today than it was seven months ago. And I added a postscript that may bring peace to the bloody war between Ger and Noahism, which has erupted as a kendo match between Rav K and Rav B (may Hashem open his eyes to the truth), as David said to Doeg, (Psalms 52:3), “Why do you pride yourself with evil, O mighty warrior. Don’t you realize that the kindness of the Al-mighty is all day?” So here is the April 23 article:
BS”D “Every defender of the faith is presumed to be a liar.” – Irving J. Rabinowitz, Jewish philosopher (no concept too big, no concept to small.)
Rabbi Z attacked me online for calling him a demon. In the Talmud (Pesachim 112a), we learn that it is the nature of a demon to damage. Rabbinic demons tried to assassinate the Ramchal. He had to shave his beard and flee to Holland where he hid out as a diamond cutter. Rabbi Z is a rabbinic demon. There are others.
I mentioned in the last blogpost that my childhood home had no Judaism in it. Nevertheless, my parents were meticulously honest, refined and disciplined people. My father, Yisrael Ber, alav hashalom, was a prosecuting attorney for Cook County, Illinois (he once prosecuted Al Capone and lost). Later, he was a municipal court judge in Chicago. My father was a marvel of discipline. He once confided to me that in the whole of his marriage to my mother, he never went to the refrigerator to see what’s inside, not once.
Shalom and blessings. I would like to mention a few things as we start moving in on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. And I must preface them by admitting that I was raised in a completely non-religious, secular Jewish home. However, both sets of grandparents were observant, and my maternal grandfather, Ze’ev Yehoshua, ben Moshe Brin, alav hashalom, was a schochet and a mohel and a baal tefillah (cantor).
BS"D I do not want to be a doom-sayer, but I would say that America is doomed. On the face of things, the only thing that could save America is if the patriotic Americans unify and persuade the military and the police to round up all the communists and fascists and do a frontal lobotomy on the lot of them. But that is a harsh and horrible way to do anything and could result in a tragedy and sorrow. And nobody wants that. At least, nobody I know.
The Shulchan Arukh HaRav rules that we are not allowed to proselytize. This means that, according to halacha (Jewish Law), it is forbidden to persuade or entice or even request a non-Jew to convert and become Jewish.
In fact, if a non-Jew comes to a rabbi or any religious Jew and tells him that he or she wants to convert, the halacha is that the Jew must reject him three times.
BS"D We are rapidly approaching a period of the year that, most notably, stands between Galut and Geulah (Exile and Redemption). It is from the beginning of the month of Elul to Yom Kippur, a period of 40 days. And when I say Exile here, I mean the exile of the soul, spiritual exile.
BS"D In order to meditate on the Ten Lost Tribes, we have to understand who they are, their nature as a people, and how many of them are in the world at this time.
There are two categories of Ten Lost Tribespersons:
1) Those who need us.
2) Those who are needed by us.
BS"D Whenever we take out the Torah to read it, we recite a portion of the Zohar, called “Brich shmay.” In it are the words, “Not in any man do I put trust, nor on any angel do I rely, only on the G-d of Heaven Who is the G-d of truth, Whose Torah is truth and Whose prophets are true and who acts generously with kindness and truth.”
