ON PEACE

Commenting on the words of the prayer “He who maketh peace in his high places, may he make peace for us …,” R’ Pinchas said that G-d created Heaven by making peace between fire and water. He added that, since G-d was able to make peace between such extremely different substances, he surely could make peace between men.*
*Tales of the Hasidim: Early Masters, by Martin Buber, p. 131 (B)

Joke of the day 25th Tevet 5770

Breslev Israel

A priest, a clergyman and a rabbi are playing golf. Suddenly, balls are crossing their path from all directions and they get very upset. They rush into the manager’s office and complain: “How can you allow others to interfere with our play? Their balls are flying everywhere!”The manager whispers into their ears: “You may not know it, but these players are blind.”The golfers are taken aback and the priest apologizes; the clergyman does the same, but the rabbi exclaims, “Why couldn’t these people play at night?”

After the Torah reading we recite the special additional Musaf prayer for when Rosh Chodesh falls on Shabbat. It is appropriate to add an extra dish to the Shabbat meals in honor of Rosh Chodesh.

Shevat is the eleventh month of Jewish year. Corresponding permutation of the Tetragrammaton: KYVK deriving from the initial Hebrew letters of Leviticus 27:33, Homer Yemirenu Vehayah Hu, "…if he shall surely change it, then it shall be…" Corresponding letter of Aleph-Beis: Tzadi; Constellation: D’li (Aquarius, the Water Carrier); Body part: Korkevan=Stomach (Sefer Yetzirah).

"Even though Israel has no MAZAL (constellation), D’LI is Israel’s Mazal!"

The first day of Shevat is when Moses began his final discourses in Deuteronomy: "And in the fortieth year in the eleventh month on the first of the month Moses spoke to the children of Israel" (Deut. 1:3). The month of Shevat is therefore propitious for Torah study and understanding as signified by the sign of D’LI, a "bucket" pouring the waters of inspiration into the world.

According to the opinion of Beit Shammai, 1 Shevat is New Year of the Trees, although in practice we follow the opinion of Beit Hillel that this is observed on Tu BiShvat, 15 Shevat (Rosh Hashanah 2a). Start planning for Tu Bishvat, which will be on January 30!*
