Title: Redemption to Redemption: The VERY Deep & Intricate Connection Between the Holidays Purim and Pesach


Author: Rabbi Pinchas Winston


Publisher: Thirtysix.org


 


 


   Remember to breathe as you read Redemption to Redemption: The VERY Deep & Intricate Connection Between the Holidays Purim and Pesach. The enlightening ideas presented by author Rabbi Pinchas Winston will boggle your mind. They’re the stuff of terrific discussions in any Jewish setting.

 

   Learn why Haman cleverly chose to build a gallows specifically 50 amot high in order to destroy not only Mordechai HaTzadik, but also the entire Jewish people. He was no fool. You won’t be either after reading that passage. You’ll also realize, with the author’s help, why we celebrate Purim only in the Adar sheini of Jewish leap years.

 

   Leaping right into the topic of geula (redemption) do you know why the nun sha’arei binah, the 50 Gates of Understanding, predicate eternal Jewish freedom? Care to learn why that’s relevant to the 50-amot courtyard outside the Mishkan?

 

   Can you explain the ever-higher levels of consciousness that a Jew attains by reaching pardes? And just what sort of orchard is that place, anyway? Balak and Bilaam knew, and this book explains why they invested great effort in cursing the Jewish nation. Hint: it all comes down to the exalted state of unity among the klal at Mattan Torah and the intellectual state that precedes such achdut. Hoshea understood the phenomenon. After reading this book, you can, too.

 

   Most Jews learn that Amalek represented cynicism, the polar opposite of Torah’s eternally positive point of view. Read Redemption to Redemption and learn why this makes Amalek relevant to the manna that fell from Heaven to nourish Jews in the desert. A few paragraphs later, you’ll understand why the power and gift of speech have so much in common with the lessons of Parshat HaMan, too.

 

   As the chapters leave Purim and delve into Pesach, readers will grow wide-eyed with wonder while considering the stunning act of chesed and damage control that Yosef achieved with his somewhat dysfunctional brothers. The life-saving importance of his exemplary behavior is a lesson for the ages: Appearances can conceal or reveal the truth. Yosef teaches us throughout the millennia that anyone associated with Torah life should strive for truth.

 

   Redemption to Redemption comes in spiral-bound or PDF formats exclusively through www.thirtysix.org. Answers as to how we Jews can actualize the geula appear in both versions of the book, covering material from Pri Tzadik Parshat Balak 3 to much of the vast world of genuine Jewish literature.

 

   Rabbi Winston has devoted his adult life studying and teaching these lessons. His time has been well spent. It can save generations of Jews from making misguided choices.

 

   The book offers a superb look at the deeper meanings of Torah life. It bears haskamah from Jerusalem’s Rabbi Mordechai Friedlander. Redemption to Redemption: The VERY Deep & Intricate Connection Between the Holidays Purim and Pesach belongs in shuls, homes and educational institutions for every age.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

The plan’s goal is to provide supportive housing to 200 individuals with disabilities by the year 2020.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book. Page 249 explains why some Jews are praised as “fish on dry land,” a phrase that describes Moshe Rabeinu. Am Yisrael began to appreciate his depth of character at kriat Yam Suf, realizing that “he lived in the revealed world as though he were in the concealed world.”

Author Irving Langer provides his own look at wine-making as well as the nature of the storage barrels used to age wines for taste perfection. He intersperses the book with Jewish historical facts and figures, a few jokes and photographs, and advice on how to pair wines with specific foods.

Unlike formulaic biographies from popular publishing houses in the Orthodox Jewish world, Beyond Politics is not predictable. The vignettes of individual men and women who trekked through Ethiopia and Sudan, flew in from Austria, India, and Algeria, or were born on Israeli soil are gritty, adventurous, and heartwarming.

Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
