Ahavat Chaim

"Ahavat Chaim", is a sefer written by the Mekubal Rav Menachem Menashe zs'l. The sefer ties with the Zohar Vayera 119 and with the Yalkut Shimoni Yishayahu Remez 499. In the sefer, he describes every war the yet-to-be-reformed nation of Israel would experience.

Rav Menachem Menashe, the author, says "HKB'H positions on them Merciful Kingdom (malchut) but if they don't go in ways of HaShem, much trouble will come. It speaks about 40 days and nights fire rain will fall in the Galil and a war against the Erev Rav (mixed multitude). The Jews will run into the Midbar (desert) for protection. HKB'H wants to bring the Geula in peaceful and calmness but if Israel do not merit, leaves 40 spaces blank and writes, "oy, chas v'shalom".

He writes that 40 days is the equivalency of 6 1/2 seconds from Zohar Vayera 119a. 40 days prior to Rosh Hashana 5767 will be great din (judgment). When counting backwards on the solar calendar, the date is August 21/22, on the lunar calendar the date is Av 28, 5766. The moment of Din is specifically tied to very major catastrophic events.

A Rav we spoke with feels there are very limited places of safety in this scenerio, and, to quote him, there is no blood for the doorposts outside of Eretz HaKodesh.

It is firmly believed and it is quoted in numerous sources that this is a time of great danger, and only specific places in Israel will be safe at this time, mainly in the Shomron (Samaria). Shomron is also called Shomron Plada (solitary steel mountain) and also Mount Ephraim, given by Yehoshua Bin Nun, a'h, to Efraim ben Yosef HaTzaddik, a'h. Shomron is the location of Moshiach Ben Yosef.

Shechem (Nablus) is also in the Shomron. The Scriptures tell us that just before Jacob died, he gave Joseph an extra piece of the land of Israel -- the city of Shechem. It is pointed out in the Kabbala, that the first letters of each of the words Baruch Shem Kevod Malchut L'olam Va'ed,the second verse of the Shema said twice every day by Jews, spell the words, b'Shechem lamed-vav, which means, In Shechem, thirty six.”

May the merit of the tzaddik HaMekubal, Rav Menachem Menashe zs'l, protect us all, Amen.
