My Sunflower !

Listen too ->my-sunflower <- & remember this was written 10 years ago just before the twin towers fell! 2 souls got engaged and erected 2 strong towers that become one and will never be destroyed with this eternal unity! Remember 15 years ago when 2 souls first met. Well truth is here your going to have to imagine. In Heaven its harder to make matches/ Shidduchim than splitting the Red Sea. However, that is what Hashem, Himself was busy with, since the beginning of time.

2 souls are yearning to meet. And meet they do, on Yom Kippur day outside after Shul hopping in their secular atire / earings 2.

Souls of a Tisha B’av generation, estranged from their peoples roots but tapped in enough to know that today, Yom Kippur, is a holy day.

Their souls meet and she knows he’s the one but neither are ready, and on they walk. In a gym years later a best friend makes the intro and on they run, but even the Titanic movie can’t break the formal distance! His best friend lets say Jonny-be-good, was always at his side then.

Before the Intifarda come these 2 souls to the holy land and seeds our planted which only begin to blossom later that year. This was written and performed 10 years ago and recently re-discovered along with other songs that shine! strugglegroup613  and like our new group -> StruggleInspired

"Photo:Everything Hashem does in the world is a message for us.The current war in Gaza and the Red Alert sirens are no exception. The whole purpose of the sirens are to remind us that there’s no one to trust but Hashem.The Hebrew word for siren is azaka, אזעקה – which has a numerical value of 183. The Hebrew words for faith and trust, emuna v’bitachon, אמונה ובטחון – also equal 183. There you have it – the entire purpose of the siren us to enhance our faith and trust in Hasahem. Once we do so on our own accord, we won’t need the sirens to prod us.

More Miracles: Reasons to Dance from Lazer Beams! Yesterday i drove round this in order to move on, with gratitude that live in the holy land continues!

Explosive device beitar

The ongoing war in Gaza has blurred our focus on Judea and Samaria, where a new entifada is brewing.

Yesterday morning, an alert border policeman at Beitar Illit noticed that the driver of a white west-bound Citroen Berlingo was acting weird – he pulled him over but he dried to get away. He was apprehended immediately and arrested. In the back of the Berlingo, the officers saw several prodigious cooking gas canisters, the size that would be sufficient for a month’s needs for a 12-family apartment building. These propane cannisters were connected to chunks of metal and an explosive device which contained several pounds of TNT (the flesh-colored play-dough looking substance in the image above). Police sappers disassembled the car bomb, which was intended to explode in an Israeli residential area. Hashem prevented a mega-catastrophe. In the words of super-modest officer Yeshurun Zoran, a real hero who we all owe much to:

We’re in the notorious “9 Days” before Tisha B’Av, and yet Hashem’s miracles and loving-kindness know no bounds. We should all be singing praises and songs of gratitude all day long.

The Klausenberger Rebbe osb”m, who lost a wife and 11 children in the Holocaust, addressed the challenges of our people and taught how to regard them from the proper perspective: “A father’s mercy is upon his son; it’s therefore clear that our Father in Heaven doesn’t want to harm us, for His love of His people Israel and even the sinners of Israel is well known.”

Miracles Midnightrabbi inspires one of my special #inspirational role models Yahrzeit was. There is suspicion of an attempted terrorist attack. A car arrived at the Betar checkpoint with gas cylinders found inside of it. The driver was arrested.

The Shai District Police announced that the driver arrived at the checkpoint after traveling from Betar Illit to Tzur Hadassah and he was detained as a suspect.

At this stage, the suspect refused to cooperate with the soldiers that investigated him and he was arrested soon afterwards. A preliminary investigation shows that there were a number of gas cylinders within the vehicle. The bomb disposal teams examined the vehicle and closed off the area in both directions. Went past Betar to Bet Shemesh, Israel the long way because of potential #terrorattack B’H. Already In Jaffa , Eli in Teli but got to run to Jerusalem soon , only good news!

The safety and security of easyJet’s passengers and crew is the airline’s highest priority.
Due to the FAA’s instruction to all United States’ airlines to suspend their flights to Israel easyJet is suspending its services to and from Tel Aviv for 24 hours and as a result will not be operating Luton/Tel Aviv/Luton and Basel/Tel Aviv/Basel flights on Wednesday 23 July.

  •  amen thanks I’m in G-d’s hands always , we all are with <3 An El-Al flight heading from London to Tel Aviv was forced to perform an emergency landing in Heathrow airport on Thursday, after one of its engines caught fire minutes following takeoff.The incident occurred about 20 minutes after flight 318 took off from the U.K. airport with 411 people aboard, around 1 A.M. Israeli time, when a loud thump was heard on the right side of the Boeing 747-400 airliner.A strong smell was then reported in the cabin, with the jetliner losing thrust. The pilots, headed by captain Ilan Margalit then redirected the plane toward Heathrow, where emergency crews were deployed ahead of the unscheduled landing.

    The crew began to undertake emergency procedures, during which a trail of fire was seen coming out of the engine, causing much alarm among the passengers.

    Eventually, however, the pilots were able to safely land the plane with only three engines.

    El Al said in response that it hoped that all of the passengers will be able to arrive in Israel in less than 24 hours.

    Speaking to Haaretz, Margalit said that the incident was handled calmly, and that crew wasn’t forced into taking extreme emergency measures. “I didn’t have to dive or do a loop,” he said, adding that he managed the episode “alertly, quietly, and calmly.”

    The emergency landing follows an incident in May, during which an El Al airliner bound for London was forced to land in Ben-Gurion International Airport shortly after taking off, after discovering a technical fault in its flaps.

    The malfunction was discovered 40 minutes into its flight, at which point the plane was instructed to burn fuel and return to Tel Aviv. It then circled the port for another 40 minutes, before safely landing. The flight’s were passengers transferred to another plane.

Have a safe trip to London today and don’t forget to meet with the people we love♥

Samples from the new book :D Spy sight 

  Cuthbert MacMillan lived in a small, quiet town, next door to Mrs. Ethel Brownheart. Shortly after her 97th birthday she passed away and DJ Andy Cee moved in.

  Cuthbert tried to get at least eight hours sleep every night, but since his new neighbour moved in he had not been able to get more than six. The music drove Cuthbert crazy. He would grin and bear his suffering and complain the following day, when he returned from work. Andy Cee would just shrug his shoulders and the same thing would continue to happen.

  One day at work, Cuthbert became so wound up by his lack of sleep that he began to curse his neighbour in front of all his friends. When he got home and complained, again Andy Cee just shrugged his shoulders. In order to counter his anger, Cuthbert went into the garden and hammered a nail all the way into Andy’s wooden fence.

  So lived our friends: loud music, late nights, complaints, shrugged shoulders, anger, bang bang bang.

  One night, about 500 nails later, the music was particularly loud and Cuthbert had an important meeting at work the following morning. He put on his dressing gown and resolved to put an end to this once and for all. He was just about to bang on his neighbour’s door, when he realised that the noise was not coming from DJ Andy Cee at all – in fact, all his lights were off; rather, it was coming from the next house along.

  Later, when Cuthbert discovered that Andy Cee worked every evening and did not return until the next morning, he began to understand what those shrugged shoulders really meant.

  When Cuthbert apologised to Andy Cee, he was forgiven, but was asked to remove all the nails that he had hammered into the fence – and he embarrassingly spent hours removing them.

Those nails represented the curses Cuthbert had placed on Andy, and removing them to rectify the effects of those bad words took far longer than saying them – if, that is, the damage   could be undone at all.

When we speak, we are hitting a nail into a fence, throwing a handful of ashes into the wind. At best, it will be hard to remove the nail and almost impossible to retrieve all of the ashes.

The spies who brought back negative reports of the land of Israel before the Children of Israel were to enter it, also spoke before properly assessing the situation.

The first letters of the verses of almost every chapter of the book of Eicha (Lamentations) follow the order of the alphabet. But in almost every instance, those beginning with letters ‘ayin’ and ‘peh’ are in the reverse order. We have been taught that this sequence reminds us of the spies who spoke with their mouths (peh) before looking properly with their eyes (ayin).

The world was created with the letters of the Hebrew alphabet and the order of the letters teaches us how we should behave. The letter ‘ayin’ comes before the letter ‘peh’ to teach us to us to place our ‘ayin’ (our eyes), before our ‘peh’ (our mouths). Not only should we think before we speak, but we should also first take a good look to ensure that our words reflect the true picture, rather than our personal bias.

The effects of neglecting to absorb this message are also reflected in the book of Eicha. After the order of the letters ‘ayin’ and ‘peh’ have been reversed a number of times and become the norm, the final chapter – even though it has 22 verses, corresponding to the 22 letters of the alphabet – is completely out of alphabetical order.

The order of the creation of the world was that first the basic substance was created and then it was fashioned in the way we know it. By changing the pre-ordained order, as reflected in the alphabet, we return the world to chaos. We knock in more and more nails, and scatter more and more ashes, making the damage we do harder and harder to rectify.

But it is not too late.

Throughout this Torah reading we see an apparently superfluous word crop up again and again: “See!”

See! We must use our eyes properly to look at what God has given us and how He has treated us. Learn to appreciate.

In the account of the spies, we are reminded ‘to look’, on seven occasions – one for each day of creation. Look properly before speaking, and retain the order of the alphabet and the world order.

At the end of Eicha we read, “Bring us back to You, God, and we shall return, renew our days as of old,” and herein lies the solution: “we shall return” the ‘ayin’ before the ‘peh’ – our eyes shall, once again, precede our mouths. Then He will “renew our days as of old” – restore our world of chaos, exile and spiritual darkness to how it once was, when the world was established by orderly creation.

May we soon merit seeing that day.

Have a ‘fansee’ Shabbos.

Inspiring stories and practical
insights into Devarim
by Rabbi Daniel Leeman

All or nothing

Towards the end of the journeying of the Children of Israel in the desert, on their way to the land of Israel, they encircled Mount Seir for a few days until God instructed them “enough of circling this mountain; turn northward”. Instead of conquering Mount Seir from the descendants of Eisav, the Children of Israel would have to change their course. Due to the failings of the scouts, the Children of Israel were commanded not to provoke the descendants of Eisav.

But what is the connection between the failings of the scouts and not provoking the descendants of Eisav? And why was the command not to provoke them preceded by the words “enough of your circling this mountain” – surely that would be self-evident from the instruction to “turn northward”?

  A representative of a certain charitable institution returned to Israel after a fundraising trip in England and told of his meeting with a major donor.

  The man lived in a simple house, although he was in fact extremely wealthy. When confronted about his seemingly contradictory lifestyle, he explained that he used to live in Berlin and felt somewhat personally responsible for the Holocaust. Every day, as evening approached, the wealthy Jews used to turn on their ostentatious chandeliers, so that the passing Germans walking their dogs, would see them and the expensive furnishings in their houses.

  Years later, when the man found himself in the concentration camps, he vowed to himself that if he were to survive, he would live a simple life, regardless of his wealth.

One aspect of the failure of the scouts was that they seemed concerned about what others were thinking: “we saw great giants and we were like grasshoppers in our eyes, and so too in theirs”. If they had been less concerned about their own honour, and how they were perceived by others, we would have entered the land of Israel much sooner.

“Enough of circling this mountain”. Instead of merely ‘circling’ our enemies, repeatedly parading, flaunting and showing-off, we should instead “turn northward (צפנה)” i.e. conceal (צפונה) both what we do have as well as, more importantly, what we do not have. Rather than giving the impression that we have more than we actually do have, we should act humbly and modestly.

Eisav testified that he had “enough” – even a lot more than he needed. But nevertheless, he was always looking for more. Even after he sold his birthright, he continued to consider it “his”. And we are taught that he even resorted to stealing in order to accumulate more. Even though he at least at first appeared to reject Yaakov’s gifts this was, in fact, merely an act.

Perhaps he initially rejected them only because he saw how willing Yaakov was to give them away, and how dishonourable it would therefore be for him to accept them. Of equal importance to his greed, was Eisav’s desire to impress others with his wealth.

Yaakov, on the other hand, declared that he had “everything” – he was satisfied with his lot. He was not interested in receiving honour because of his wealth or giving the impression that he possessed more than he actually did. This is the greatness of Yaakov.

However, if we start to compromise our ideals because of other people’s perception of us, as the scouts did, then measure-for-measure we will lose this advantage over our enemies. We are the descendants of Yaakov and should follow in his footsteps. This is the advantage we have over our enemies and this is how we will be saved from them.

We have been taught that Eisav’s merit was that he honoured his father, and for that reason we were instructed not to conquer his descendants’ land but rather to “turn northward” instead. “Northward” is also referred to as an ascent. If, instead of looking for honour, we honour our Father in Heaven we can ascend to great spiritual heights.

Have an ascending Shabbos.


It is my pleasure to pen a letter of recommendation for my dear friend and colleague Rabbi Danny Leeman shlita, who serves as Maggid Shiur at our Beis Midrash.


Rabbi Leeman’s well-presented Shiurim are attended by an enthusiastic audience and have merited much acclaim by the participants. Intertwined with classical commentaries and modern authorities, he spices his lectures with stories, anecdotes and innovative insights.


Throughout his book too, Rabbi Leeman utilizes the power of the story and mashal in a very inspiring and captivating way to illustrate a deeper understanding of the pshat. He demonstrates his special talent of showing how messages and morals gleaned from long ago events are relevant to our daily lives, motivating one to strive for a higher level of spiritual achievement.


With its pleasant format, readers are sure to enjoy the diverse topics discussed,              spiced with wit and a deep understanding of human nature.

The band was here in Israel from August 10th – 18th, and the dream is to spread these soulful restorative tunes throughout the homeland during that week.
I have linked three of their videos here (including an Acapella three-weeks-friendly one), as well as an early track of theirs recorded in the guitarist’s makeshift home studio, for you to give others a feel for the music. Otherwise, when the EP comes Zusha – Tzion:

A Hot Afternoon in Ashdod from Lazer Beams

The south of Israel is still under heavy rocket fire from Gaza. In the last hour, we’ve had four Red-Alerts here in Ashdod alone. The Iron Dome intercepted several incoming missiles, and several others fell outside of town in unpopulated areas. Metal fragments from the exploded missiles rained around the city, that’s why it’s important to stay in a protected zone for at least a minute after hearing the explosion.

We pray for the recovery of a 17-year old lad in Ashkelon who has been seriously injured from a direct missile hit while he was running for cover in an open area.

Hashem continues to do miracles…

Rabbi Steinsaltz, (a chassid of the Rebbe) His Murdered Students And A Call To Action

From PINCHAS ALLOUCHE July 1, 2014, 4:43 am

Rabbi Steinsaltz a Chassid of the Rebbe and perhaps the wisest Jewish sage of our time, is the Dean of the Mekor Chaim high school, where two of the boys were students, and where I too had the privilege of studying. The news splashed across his face and turned it white. Tears streamed down his cheeks. Uncontrollably, he repeated the Psalmist’s words: “For Your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep!”

“Why?” I asked him. “Why, Rabbi, does God do this?” He was silent. But I knew that he was not ignoring the question. Quite the opposite: he was answering it, through his reverberating silence. Indeed, these tragedies are inexplicable. Sometimes, God is irrational. He is beyond understanding. “All we can do,” Rabbi Steinsaltz told me after a long pause, “is shout and protest.” Again, he quoted the same Psalm (chapter 44): “Awake! Why are you sleeping, O Lord? Rouse yourself! Do not abandon us forever!”

But it was the lesson that he drew from this tragedy that most moved me: “People will light memorial candles, recite prayers, and attend vigils,” he said. “Our boys were killed al Kiddush Hashem, because they were Jews.”

The Rabbi went on, “Therefore, to best honor their memories – indeed, to confront evil –we must act always as proud Jews, in our deeds and through our lives.”

A dark cloud has befallen our nation today. Our hearts are broken, yet united with the hearts of the boys’ families, as we mourn and we cry with them. We cannot erase the evil. But we can create good. We can transform the world through goodness by living as Jews and acting as Jews, with our Torah and mitzvot.

Let us demonstrate to the world that “the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied” (Exodus 1:12), and that the very Jewish soul that our enemies so wish to destroy, is alive and vibrant as ever.

Until the day, when God “will destroy death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces” (Isaiah 25:8). Amen.
