The Gaza War and This Week’s Haftorah

7

From this week’s Haftorah: (Yirmiyahu 1:18)

“ואני הנה נתתיתך היום לעיר מבצר ולעמוד ברזל ולחומות נחושת על כל הארץ…ונלחמו אלייך ולא יוכלו לך כי אתך אני נאם ה’ להצילך”.

“Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land….they will fight you and they won’t be able to get to you, for I am with you so says the Lord, to save you.”

  1. it’s a great quote… but it was said by HKB”H to Yirmiyahu at the very begining of his stint as the Navi of the Churban. HaShem was being mechazek him to go and fulfill His “shlichus”. Halevai the leaders of Israel should be zoche to such a nevuah!

  3. Look at yesterdays Daf!! DAf 6(a). Chamas is mentioned and Perek Beis in Tzaphania is quoted which talks about Azza, Ashkelon and Ashdod! AMAZING!

  4. It’s a difficult process but we need to hold on. May the redemption come soon. Tehillim also mentions that Hashem is with us. Thanks for sharing the message

  5. Editor: You should post the drasha of the Chasam Sofer for ‘Ches Tammuz'(the exact same day the operation started!) where he speaks about the rockets falling on pressburg and the purpose of such an event to awaken feelings of teshuva. He speaks about teshuva in three areas in particular that have to do with rockets 1)Tznius-
    2)Lashon Hara
    3)Shaving with a razor

    Very applicable nowadays!!

  6. Not such a great quote. That posuk was said to Yirmiyahu with a guarantee by Hashem that He would stand and protect him from the Jews that cause him trouble on account of his gloomy prophecies. A better choice would have been the last posuk in the Haftarah:

    ??????? ??????????? ??????????????? ????????? ????????????? ?????????????? ??????????? ?????? ??????? ????????? ???????????????????

    “A holy thing is Israel to HaShem, the first of His fruits. All that devour him shall incur guilt; evil shall come over them, says HaShem.”
