Happy Jerusalem Day

May 11th, 2015

How happy it is to be honoring Jerusalem Day. (see below for WHAT is Jerusalem Day) The holiest city in the world is in the hands of the Jewish people, because of Jerusalem Day.  What a gift from God and how thankful we are for this divine and exceptional gift. The gift of Jerusalem is precious, because it is God that lets such a glorious thing happen.  We thank God for Jerusalem!!!   Like the gift of the Sabbath each week, the Jewish people have one job: thanking God.  That is a service in itself.  So what can you do on Jerusalem Day?  What can you do FOR Jerusalem day?

Today Orthodox Union’s Israel Center in Jerusalem, 11 May 2015, had a one day visit of many spots of interest to honor Jerusalem Day NEXT week.  It was an appropriate introduction to the honor that should be lavished on the Jerusalem Day.  One thing was that the Israel Center too a bus load of tourists on an all day tour to remember the Jerusalem Day of 1967 during the June SIX DAY WAR.  This was a day with history lectures and emotional reading of letters written by young people who were anticipating the possible war from the Egyptian tension after Egypt closed the Suez Canal.  There were visits to high points where Arabs in Israel ambushed Jewish convoys on roads below: i.e. Castel, Ramat Rachel, Mt. Scopus, and other places in Jerusalem.

We viewed some videos educating us about the details of the Six Day War’s Jerusalem battles by Ammunition Hill.

The education and the inspiration were vital.  Although most of the tourists were highly informed about the 1967 war and about the holiness of Jerusalem, the tour still had great value.  It was a chance to get more into the love of Jerusalem and the scope of love so many millions of Jews have had for Jerusalem for thousands of years.  This tour accomplished just that.

And so when the bus load of tourists left the trip for their homes in Jerusalem and areas around Israel, they were wired for a richer Jerusalem Day next week.

If you are reading this in 2018, it doesn’t matter.  Just talking about how important it is to trek on the land of Israel makes this above essay of value.  Just reading that Jews can be in all corners of Jerusalem is worth putting into your head.  It was so happy to have this swell day and share it with you.

Now what will you do to make Jerusalem Day precious to you?  Walk around the walls of the city?  Good idea?  Pray and pray to God, the God of  Moses?  Good idea.  Anything else, so write in comments in beyondarecipe.com

What is Jerusalem DAY?  It is the day that the Israeli Defense Force, which is the Israel army, captured Jerusalem’s Jordanian sector and returned it united with the Jewish sector. It took place June 1967 with Israel fighting Jordanian’s serious and prepared army.  The battles included air, tank and hand to hand battle.  The many Israeli soldiers that died are memorialized at the Ammunition Hill museum near French Hill section of Jerusalem today.  Before June 1967 Jordan had large sections of Jerusalem, so that it was a divided city.

Gender Wholeness

April 28th, 2015

Gender Wholeness Conference and more info below  All about the website and organization JONAH

The Jonah website is dedicated to the Jewish population of men and their families, who aim to remove same gender attraction—’unwanted same gender attraction’.  In this light I put below a conference their website is recommended in many U.S. locations in August 2012.  Gender Wholeness is the name of this website and organization. Reach Jonah for 2015 meetings and events, of course.

It is only because our website beyondarecipe.com promotes the commandments of the Torah: for all nations ‘the Noahide Codes’ which are the seven commandments in the Five Books of Moses.   The law/code that states unequivocally that homosexuality is prohibited is among the top seven universal laws that must be (read below about ‘must be’, please) observed: it is– heterosexual intimate union during marraige is the only permitted sexuality among mankind.

The seven laws are 1. no idol worship, 2. no stealing  3. no murdering   4. make a legal system for society to abide by  5. no cursing God and honor His Torah  6. do not eat a limb from a live animal   7. heterosexual intimate union during marriage for the purpose of having children is the only permitted sexuality

These seven laws morph into over 200 laws, which you can learn about via Chabad.org or an Orthodox Jewish rabbi.  Contact me for further information at beyondarecipe.com

The Jewish person, who keeps commandments, has 613 commandments (mitzvos) in the Five Books of Moses, which are his obligation.  The seven above are for all the other nations of the world, which means any religions that exclude these seven or add other ideas against these seven, should be removed from one’s life.

Here are the conference details below and thank you for letting me cover the basics above —here at beyondarecipe.com  with love from your grandma on the web with tips to give you eternal success and joy.
‘must be’—How can anyone say a law ‘must be’ observed? Can anyone push in your face a moral law and you will willingly keep it? But what if I explain how all laws from God are holy and part of the reason God gave us a life to lead as holy/ moral/ ethical/ good people?
Oh, good is not standarized, you may say. That is why beyondarecipe.com is here. We want to update the democratic world that morality is a vital function that is a one size fits all with variations of the one size theme of the seven universal laws. Nothing has changed that sodomy and lust and abuse and sexuality of homosexuals are prohibited. What has made it that economically and politically homosexual activites are U.S. and European new permitted ideas? The answer: immorality has been absorbed into the mainstream and the blinders of those promoting these immoral acts is so thick and so stubborn and so full of intellectual and political rationale, that NO ONE SEES the FORESTSsssss through the TREES. The forests are poluted, full of acid rain and ecological filth and spiritual vacuums. And that is both a physical and a spiritual reality in 2013.
CAN YOU CHANGE YOUR IDEAS AND GO WITH THE NEW NEW MORAL seven universal codes of Noah and reject the new morality which is accepting immorality as okay? You may not WANT TO CHANGE, you say.
Join our many beyondarecipe.com readers and comment and read our many articles. Spend time thinking about 3000 years of moral rules that are often chucked—notice when the homosexuality became acceptable, the ruling society and civilization soon was destroyed totally, never to rise again. Notice the history of mankind is consistent with this cycle. And so ask why? Because, we answer, beyondarecipe.com honors God and He has laws that put the world in orbit and made Mankind enter the scene. We are not a game or part of a roulette chance life, life is not a gamble or a chance. It is a plan with holy aims and eternal longings that are only to be satisfied by eternal rules by God, the One and Only.
Where can such rules be found? Why honor this idea that there are even such rules?
Because history has shown that there is a small nation that has tenaciously left the mainstream to clutch onto the 613 laws and keep the flame of the seven universal laws available for anyone interested. We are all over the world, turn somewhere and find an Orthodox Jew and anywhere on the globe you can read on internet and reach in person an Orthodox Jew to share with you these eternal seven gentile God-made laws for YOU.
We Jews are not perfect. We make our own mistakes and sin. Yes. But we are linked from Adam to 2013 with these 613 laws from the Books of Moses and in them are YOUR 7 universal laws—the Noahide laws—and HOMOSexuality is one thing that is prohibited. That is clear.
Wise worldly lawyers and businessmen and politicians and volunteer leaders may all say homosexuality is now legal. This is like any oxymoron, nothing is further from the truth. Can rights be given to a man to marry another man and what if one of the men ‘cheats’ and is that adultery? How many things can we say about the unethical and immoral concept and physcial reality of homosexual partners that are legally called married? Can you charge on man with immorality if he cheats on his partner and finds a one night stand with another man? Is that considered evil and adultery? No one would then say that is grounds for divorce. Yet the reason for this is because the loyalty of one man to another to do a homosexual act is in itself, as you know in your heart of hearts, fluff and nothing profound or holy. Marriage is holy matrimony—how can two women or two men behaving beastially be united in holiness? Holiness has a definition and no one can stretch it no matter how clever and brilliant and powerful their laws and their reasoning. Debating clubs will outshine me, if they wish. Anyone can refute me, as ‘democracy’ is insane with elasticity nowadays to allow that ‘anything goes’.
So step back, enter a quiet corner alone and forget debates and politics. Just know I am your grandma on the web and offering you a corner to walk away from the hubbub of life’s jungle at beyondarecipe.com I am not Mother Theresa and I am not a proclaimer of celibacy. There is permitted sex for gentiles and another set of rules/laws for Jews for heterosexual behavior. Jews have the family laws of purity. Gentiles have another smaller list of laws to follow. Either way you can study these laws by God.
Think about this and pray to God you can learn these many ways to behave with modesty and loyalty to one spouse who is the opposite sex. This is nothing new. I call it new new—open your soul to absorb this revolution to keep the Seven Laws of Noah. (visit the search rectangle and type in Noahide laws and read all our info at beyondarecipe.com or view the vimeo productions we produced: type in Jim Long or Conversations with Noahides)
No one can benefit more than you. This is my free gift, from me to you—in essence there is such a thing as TINSTAAFL—there is no such thing as a free lunch—here we refute this and say there is such a thing as a free lunch—inotherwords—beyondarecipe.com has Noahide info for you to learn and spend time applying in your life Noahide laws————————God bless you with success!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whiten the Teeth

April 25th, 2015

My dentist Dr.  Hana Jotkowitz in Jerusalem offered me Opalescence Teeth Whitening Systems to whiten my teeth.  I used it and found it was very good.  Years ago my dentist was Dr. Ari Greenspan, in Jerusalem, who had me use this same system.  Both dentists are highly professional, so if they recommend it, I mention it to you here in beyondarecipe.com.  See the you tube about the system from the company and then from some dentist that goes over how to instructions for you.  You might then want to ask your dentist to let you have this whitening system to make your teeth whiter for years.  Around the world dentists can offer this, not just in Israel.  Are you in U.S.A.?  So ask you dentist there.

Bible Codes

April 24th, 2015

I told you about Arachim/Discovery Seminars and Aish.com in beyondarecipe.com.  Let me mention these seminars are based on Torah Codes.  In 1930’s Rabbi Dov Ber Weissmandl wrote about these codes.

I was telling you some things about the codes, the remarkableness of the Hebrew letters.

But there is much more I did not describe to you.  Rabbi Weissmandl (see biography of Rabbi D.B. Weissmandl called Undeeded Cry, book in Eichler’s book store) knew all of Torah by heart.  So as a huge genius, he figured out that every 50 letters in a section in the Five Books of Moses, put together a certain code/message.

Over and over he did this to come up with messages and names that were like prophetic.  If the letters were put together and the context of the paragraphs were read, there were messages!  The seminar you take (hoping you will sign up and take a Discovery Seminar via Aish.com)  should be very full of energetic alive speakers, who are Rabbis with love of these codes and Jewish history and prayer.  So you will like it.

     When Dr. Inbal (who was one of the innovators of Arachim (which morphed into the English speaker’s Discovery Seminars)  and other scientists saw the workings of the alphabet in the Five Books of Moses (Chumash), and learned about Rabbi Weissmandl’s information, they set up computers.  Listen to what they did.  They took Shakespeare and took a play and checked every 50th letter everywhere looking for patterns or sensible messages.  Nothing but babel and jibberish came up.  They did this with many languages that have their classic literature.

     They again counted from the beginning of the Chumash, the first letter is a word with a Beit (b).  They counted 50 letters after that and did other tests like 25 letters after and 100 letters after.  Then they wrote the every 50th letters  for the book of Numbers, or for the book of Genesis, and checked their finding,   It just was not jibberish.  All this is the half story.  Because in short many many scientists saw the order of the Chumash and its Hebrew letters and saw the letters with their ‘conscousness’ and they were Jews, many not keeping Sabbath.  Yet the apparent mind behind the Chumash was obvious.

You can take a pot with ink and throw it on a white tablecloth.  It will look like blobs of ink.  Do you think if you did it one million times that finally a tablecloth would have a great Picasso painting in ink be formed?  Do you think it would become a book like War and Peace by Tolstoy?  Nope.   But what if when you take a pot full of letters and throw them in a typewriter, the next day a composition by Shakespeare appears?  Could it happen? Nope.

Now what if you decided to write a great play, would you be so smart to have every 10th letter have a message and every 20th letter, and 50th letter?  Could you do that?  Maybe.  But what if the play is by Shakespeare and you see no messages and then other literature in other languages, no messages, yet in Hebrew for the Torah, messages constantly…So if you take bunches of letters and decide to find meaning in every 50th letter or 150 letter, what if it has meaning in Hebrew written Chumash but no meaning in every other language, what can that mean?

                                        What can it mean? What can it mean? What can it mean? 

It means there is something thoughtful and conscious and planned by the formation of the 600,000 or so letters in the Chumash.  And these scientists know that with probability, no such result can occur by ‘chance’.  So if this order is impossible then there is no chance it can be, yet is true the Chumash is the impossible happening, outside of the possible, so what explains this?

     God, the Creator, conscious and full of thought, made this Chumash…He wrote it.  It is holy and the words are by Him.  This  result boggled the scientists.  Those not keeping Sabbath became closer to Judaism.  Afterall, what is Torah: it tell us to keep Sabbath and to not kill and to wear tefillin.  But the Torah (five books) does not tell you what are tefillin, so the Orthodox Jewish rabbis have been studying how to wear tefillin and how to keep the many details of Sabbath in the Oral Law–

    In Discovery Seminar speakers explain this Oral Law.  The speakers are usually Rabbis and here is what they explain.  Imagine you are in a school classroom during class.  You listen to the teacher and take notes.

    Then class is over and you go home and review your notes.  Then you get a call from a friend:”Hi, I missed class, could I borrow you notes?”

     You say yes and scan them and email it to her/him.

     In the Discovery Seminar the speakers asks the audience: Did the notes cover everything in class?

    Nope.

    Everything in class was on the blackboard and then orally spoken by the teacher.  There was a lot going on. So then what else is there besides notes?  The oral information and the blackboards.

    So it was at Mt. Sinai.  God spoke to Moses and gave him the Torah and much more was transmitted by God to Moses–this is the Oral Tradition, which is just as vital as the written!  There is no teacher who says, What you wrote in your notes, I will test you and the rest I said that you happened not to get on paper in your notes you can forget.

     Stunning.  See the truth in this?

    Gemarra is now much of the Oral Torah–vital to the written Chumash.

    More another time- love, Chana Tova

Love Kindness: Ahavas Chesed

April 23rd, 2015
Olive press at Chai Farms, Mevo Modiim, Israel

Olive press at Chai Farms, Mevo Modiim, Israel

After Passover/Pesach is the season to think about loving kindness.  It is the time for Jews to remember that there have been times in the history of Jews when Jew disliked Jew, fought or pained other Jews.  So in his saintly way the Chofetz Chaim wrote many books to get Jews to have books to explain how NOT to hate other Jews, how NOT to cheat or pain other Jews.  One of these many books is Ahavas Chesed.  Another is Chofetz Chaim.  Another is Shmiras Haloshon.  Below is a sweet tale of one of the book:  Ahavas Chesed’s messages.  Shalom Money is the title.

The sefer: Ahavas Chesed has the full scope of peace money explained.  It is another sefer, besides the very famous Chofetz Chaim boo/sefer, by the Chofetz Chaim (pen name of Rabbi Yisroel Meir Kagan.  In this sefer, Ahavas Chesed (Hebrew title meaning Love of Kindness) the author explains, take an envelope and put money inside it and put it aside.  When an occasion arises, say, two fighting parties argue and the issue can be ironed out with money, then take out that money.  It is there in the envelope and that is ONLY what it is for.  So it is easy and won’t hurt the budget or seem expensive, as it is money that was only for this purpose.

Use the money to give to the party that should be paid and give it to that party to get peace. 

EXAMPLE: Mr. Weber, our neighbor, was on our front lawn.  It was a Shabos and the boys on the block were feuding, starting to get physical.  There were boys yelling until their faces turned red and some pushing and one tiny boy was getting shoved and Mr. Weber came over.  He got all the sides of the story. Ahavas Chesed by Chofetz Chaim (purchase on Amazon or by Eichlers)

One expensive baseball bat was missing and someone stole it or hid it or who knows what.  The boys thought they knew which one of the group did it and the fight was really getting big.  Mr. Weber got everyone to explain what they had to say.  Even after hearing all the side, there was no way to find the truth, so Mr. Weber asked: How much was the bat worth.  Someone bought it, so that young boy said seven dollars (this is a story from 1990).  Mr. Weber said he would pay and take the boy to a place to get another bat sometime.  All this was done without violating Shabos or saying ‘I will pay you 7 dollars.  I will drive you to Toys R Us on Sunday.’  The whole story became a legend in my memory, because I too had Ahavas Chesed shalom money in an envelope and now I was learning how to do this great mitzvah better than I had done it in the past.

A decade later I was near a neighbor’s bushy overgrown shrub to get a ball that rolled into it.  First I got the ball.  But while I pushed my hands through the bush, I also found a dusty stick or something.  I took it out.  It was a decomposed wooden bat.  Years of snow and rain in N.Y. weather destroyed that once new bat, which was the famous lost or hidden bat to cause all the fighting.

What happened?  Did one of the boys hide it there and never retrieve it?   Mr. Weber had taken one boy all the way to a toy store to buy a new bat soon after that Shabos, so no one cared about the lost (?) bat and each week after that incident, boys played together with minimum of fighting, some feuds, but never to that extent again.  The Shalom money and the driving to the store, as well, meant the busy parents of the boy (who owned the bat) did not have to drive to get the bat at a store.  So much peace came from Mr. Weber making Ahavas Chesed alive.
