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

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.

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book.

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.
