Almonds Shalom: Wonderful shiurim. Thank you. Tisha b'Av is Moshiach's birthday. In parshas Korach Aharon HaCohen's staff, blossoms almonds! Is there a connection? Reply

brilliant ! Awesome ! Thank you for going deeper in explaining tragedies by putting stories, events, people and putting a light on the complicated and extreme puzzling questions we all have. It seems to be all interwoven in mysterious ways. Thank you for unfolding some of the wonder for us in a very brilliant and articulate way. Reply

WE AREN'T GIVING UP! We've been through so much throughout these thousands of years and we're still loyal. And we understand now so much more, as you say, because we're expecting Moshiach any moment.
But when already?!?!?
Thank you for your class, it gave me real strength. Reply

almond staff and tribe leaders Rabbi;
Perhaps a connection of the almond staff and the tribal leaders has to do with Aarons staff, which was also almond. Perhaps it is saying something about a leaders role of peacemaker and unifier. That Torah without unity is exile as scene by Aarons staff being in the Aron with the tablets. I have often wondered why the town of bersheva which was once called Luz is almost always mentioned as the town that was once called Luz after its name was changed. Why the continued connection to the past name? Thank you so much for all your wonderful teachings and may Hashem bless you and your family with Shalom. Reply
