Mashiach & Purim

B"H

9 Adar 5770


With thanks to Ohr Somayach:


"Behind every Jewish joke there's a Jewish tear. A wry bitter/sweet feeling of two thousand years of exile. Tears of sadness. Tears of joy.

In the Psalm, Shir Hama'alot, that we sing after a festive meal, there is a line that yearns for the coming of Mashiach: "Then will our mouths be filled with laughter..." When the Mashiach comes, he will come in an instant, and things will be totally turned upside down.

Just like Purim, he will come in crisis, in catastrophic reversal - hippuch. His coming will not be through gradual improvement. He will come in the darkest hour... which is always just before the dawn.

The bitter/sweet humor of the Jewish People will then be transformed to a sweet/sweet humor. There will no longer be an elegiac quality to it. Ridicule will be deposed from its throne of idiocy. Our mouths will be filled with laughter. It will be a laughter of discovery, a laughter of total realization.

Then we will see how all the pieces in this Comedy of the Absurd called Life fit into place.

Then we will laugh the last laugh."

Yartzeit of Moshe Rabbeinu

7 Adar 5770


Moshe's Other Half
By Rebbetzin Chana Bracha Siegelbaum
Founder and Director, Midreshet B'erot Bat Ayin


Like Moshe was Molded by Women, Women Mold the Mashiach

On Zayin Adar (this year, February 21) we celebrate the birthday and the day of Moshe Rabbeinu's passing. At this time, Moshe's mazal (spiritual influence) shines most powerfully, and as the leader of Israel, he draws down Hashem's blessings to all of us.


Since seven represents a complete cycle, the seventh of Adar inspires us to serve Hashem in a complete manner. The Chatam Sofer compares Moshe, the first redeemer, to the final redeemer. We learn from Michah 7:15: As in the days of your Exodus from the Land of Egypt, I will show you wonders, that the redemption from Egypt is the prototype of the Final Redemption.

Moshe, who was the leader of the Jewish people during the Exodus, is the prototype of Mashiach. The midrash gives an example of how Mashiach parallels Moshe. Just like Moshe took his wife and children and made them ride on the donkey, so too, will Mashiach ride on a donkey (Kohelet Rabah 1:28). Just like it was the women in his life (Miriam, Yocheved, Bitya and Tziporah) who made Moshe into the leader of Israel, so is it the women who will bring about and mold the final redeemer.

Tziporah's role in molding Moshe is highlighted through the gematria (numerical value) of her name which equals "for Moshe". Moshe had an additional name, Tzipor. These same letters also spell tzaf or the light floated - as Moshe Rabbeinu saw Tziporah's light float.

"Before the arrival of Moshiach, most of the rabbis will be from the Erev Rav, because Israel in themselves are holy, but the Erev Rav only work for their own benefit . . . wanting to rule over the public . . . One should only join with those who truly serve G-d and sacrifice themselves to Him, but not in order to receive any benefit." (Divrei Chaim, Parashas Vayakhel, 'Omissions')

Information as a Weapon

B"H

19 Shevat 5770


Dear Children of Israel, I received the following comment from Warren Burstein:
[Quoting MW] "NO ONE is exempt from this Milchamah Mitzvah!! See you on the battlefield."

[Mr. Burstein] "Why don't you tell us about what you're planning to do in this battle (the real person writing this blog, not what Moshiach's wife might do). Or is your role restricted to urging others to."


Following is my response:

Thank you for your comment, Mr. Burstein because it shows that I did not accomplish my goal here. If you can ask such a question, perhaps others also did not understand, so allow me to make another attempt and if it is still not clear, please do write again.

First let me point out that the essence of truth does not change just because people perceive it to be untruth and by the same token, a lie does not cease to be a lie just because the majority of people believe it to be the truth.

We are so far into the redemptive process and the brightening of the sky, i.e. the revelation of truth, has been so gradual, we have barely taken notice of it. Heaven is shouting, as it were, and we have simply tuned it out. But if we choose to open our eyes to see and our ears to hear, we will be amazed that all the answers are right in front of us.

This period of history has been dubbed The Information Age and we have been hearing for a decade that there is a war on for "hearts and minds." Mr. Burstein, OUR WAR IS A WAR FOR HEARTS AND MINDS AND OUR WEAPONS ARE INFORMATION AND EDUCATION.

I have been an active participant in this war for eleven years now. I learn and I pass on what I have learned and encourage others to follow that path. The only way to fight for the World of Truth while living in the World of Lies is with TRUTH---TORAH TRUTH.

But know this! It is not enough to learn and know. And it is not enough to teach others what you know. KNOWLEDGE DEMANDS ACTION. It cannot be that we will learn who the Erev Rav are and learn to identify them and then not separate from them.

Here is an important lesson. The klipot can only exist while attached to kedusha. The Jewish neshama is the ultimate kedusha in this world. When the klipot are separated from the Jews, they lose all their power and they collapse.

This happened in Mitzrayim when the Jews left, which is why those who did not want (or intend) to leave had to die in the plague of darkness, because it was the will of the Creator that Egypt collapse.

This is one explanation for the Shoah. Hitler, y"s had the support of the German people, but he only had the power to take over the world from the kedusha of the Jews living under his rule. When he managed to kill them all or send them fleeing elsewhere, all his great power collapsed.

We should be able to extrapolate lessons for today as well. Eisav has to fall. This exile must end. The Jews of Russia, Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, etc. MUST LEAVE or G-d forbid, Hashem will take them out some other way [Yechezkel 20.38---"And I shall separate from you those who rebel and those who transgress against Me; from the land of their sojournings I shall take them, but to the land of Israel they shall not come, and you will know that I am the Lord."] When the Jews will leave the West, Eisav's power will collapse completely. This is one goal of the great tide of antisemitism sweeping through Europe--to send the Jews fleeing out of there. This is the great danger of remaining in the exile past the time that Hashem wills it to end.

And when the Jews of Eretz Yisrael will know and understand the power that they have over the Erev Rav, its power, too, will collapse. Because its power comes only from the kedusha of true Jewish neshamas. This is why the Erev Rav could not gain a foothold in Eretz Yisrael until first, people like the GRA"S students came and settled in the Holy Land.

When we will know (INFORMATION) and understand (EDUCATION) and act (SEPARATION), Heaven will help and we will win the war which will bring about the revelation of Mashiach Tzidkeinu; the unification of G-d's Name and the return of the Shechina, which are all one and the same thing.

Mashiach is in great pain and he suffers constantly. He is mocked and tormented and held back from the completion of his mission by the Erev Rav who have united Eisav and Yishmael and who incite them also against Mashiach Tzidkeinu. They drive him near to the point of death and only Hashem's mercy keeps him alive.


Practically speaking, the Jews in chu"l must come home. Allow Eisav to collapse and join the battle against the Erev Rav who rule over Eretz Yisrael.
The Jews of Eretz Yisrael have to understand that the State is doomed as are all its institutions because it is corrupt and full of rot. Its foundation, as shaky as the sands of Tel Aviv, the city which represents it, is not built on the bedrock of Torah which is represented by Jerusalem, the eternal Holy City, which never moves from her place no matter how many times foreigners overrun her. The Medina is not the Nation, nor is it the Land. It is a vehicle for arriving at a certain point in history; an incubator within which the kingdom grows and matures until is it viable.

Rav Binyamin Kahane, ztz"l, Hy"d told his students to withdraw from the election process once it became clear that the Erev Rav would never allow the people to choose a Torah government democratically. And his wisdom has been proven over and over these last ten years as Moshe Feiglin has failed again and again to advance any gains from within the corrupted system.

We saw the beautiful example of the young woman from Shomron who sat in jail for months rather than give her name to the police, stating openly and proudly that she does not recognize the authority of the state courts over her.

We've seen how the IDF which the Erev Rav regime imagined to be a means to acculturize (secularize) the Torah observant has been turned against those who idolized it and tried to cooperate with it, first in Gush Katif and now with the Hesder program. If we will not voluntarily separate, Hashem will force us to separate and it will be so much more painful and tragic!

Think on this. Ponder it well. It may sound terribly wrong when heard through the filter of Western assimilation, but mark my words, this is how it is going to come about. Everything is pushing us towards this end. And it is going to be the biggest test of faith we have ever endured. We will be tempted to ask "Is Hashem among us or not?" But "remember Amalek"---remember that only when we doubt can Amalek triumph over us.

Awaiting your comments...

Conclusions

B"H

19 Shevat 5770


Dear Children of Israel, the Erev Rav will not be rectified. They will be destroyed. And only then will the geulah shleimah arrive since they are the main hindrance to its fulfillment.
...When these shall be exterminated (the mixed multitude- Amalek), it will be as if G-d had made heaven and earth on that day; hence it is written, "On the day that G-d makes heaven and earth". At that time G-d will reveal Himself with the Shechinah and the world will be renewed, as it is written, "for as the new earth and the new heaven, etc." (Isaiah 66:22). At that time "the Lord shall cause to spring from the ground every pleasant tree, etc.", but before these (the other gods, the mixed multitude, Amalek) are exterminated the rain of the Torah will not descend, and Israel, who are compared to herbs and trees, cannot shoot up, as is hinted in the words: "no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field, etc." (Gen. 11, 5), because "there was no man", i.e. Israel were not in the Temple, "to till the ground" with sacrifices…

THE EREV RAV ARE AMALEK AND THEY ARE MIXED WITH ISRAEL AND
THEY WILL BE BLOTTED OUT
But AMALEK, who are the first born of Mitzraim and The EREV RAV mixed among the Jews, it is written about them (Devarim 25:19) “You shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek” So that none of them remain, for they are an admixture from all the nations and even from Cain. And as soon as they are blotted out from the world “Then the people will start calling in G-d’s name” Tikkune Zohar Tikkun 69

THE WAR AGAINST AMALEK IS THE WAR AGAINST THE EREV RAV

A war of Hashem against Amalek from generation to generation (Shemot) There never was a generation nor will ever be in this world without this evil seed, and the Holy One Blessed be He wages war against them. Of such it is written: (104:35) “Let the sinners be consumed from the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless the Lord, O my soul. Hallelu-kah! The Holy Zohar, Beshallach 67a

THE EREV RAV ADMIXED WITH ISRAEL, ON THEM IT IS SAID: YOU SHALL BLOT OUT THE MEMORY OF AMALEK (ZECHER AMALEK), SO THAT NOTHING REMAINS OF THEM

But when Amalek that (they are the first fruit of Mitzraim and the Erev Rav) admixed with Israel, on them it is said: You shall blot out the memory of Amalek (Zecher Amalek), so that nothing remains of them, that they are the admixture of all the nations and even from Kain, and as soon as they are removed from the world, then people will start calling in the name of Hashem... Tikkune Zohar 119ª

THE EREV RAV MIXED WITH THE TRIBE OF SHIMON AND THEY ARE THE ONES THAT SINNED REGARDING THE DAUGHTERS OF MOAV

Regarding the plague (The one that afflicted the Tribe of Shimon, after the incitement of the daughters of Moav) it was for the good of Israel, so that all the Erev Rav that was mixed with Israel as it says in Tehillim (Psalms 72) SAFU TAMU MIN BALAHOT, as Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai said, that all the 24,000 that died belonged to the tribe of Shimon, from the Erev Rav that converted and attached themselves to the tribe of Shimon. And this is why it is written “And the dead were…” meaning that they had died a few times already, regarding the meat, and regarding the spies and regarding the Golden calf, etc…For Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai had explained how nobody from Israel had died and that the Jews could not come into the land of Israel until they would be cleaned and purified from all the husks.
Megale Amukot al ha Torah, Balak

How do we combat this evil element within us? Remember that this is a war for hearts and minds. We educate and inform good Jews about how to identify the Erev Rav and then we do all within our power to separate from them and encourage others to do the same. Obviously, contrary to what we have been taught (very possibly by Erev Rav rabbis!) baseless love is not the answer. We must no longer side with them in our hearts, which is what happened at the incident with the Golden Calf...
...The Jews in general sinned with the Golden calf through thought, for when they saw how the Calf came out from the fire, they thought: Maybe there is something about the Golden Calf, but they did not sin through action for they did not make the Golden calf and they also said nothing about it, for it was made by the Erev Rav and they are the ones who said: These are your gods Israel, These are your gods and not These are our gods.

...And we are still in exile, for the redeemer will not come until we will purify and separate our-selves from them. And this was also the sin of King Shlomo when he received converts. Sefer ha Likuttim Tehillim

DO THIS: SEPARATE FROM THEM

From all that, we learn frightful things, that most of the Rabbanim are from the Erev Rav, and one has to fight against them with a strong war. And due to our many sins, not only that we do not fight against them but many people have a good connection with them, and build buildings and palaces for them and give them large sums of money, and they have an honorable and famous name, and the real Tzaddikim, who are connected to Hashem, sit in poverty and cannot act for the sake of Heaven properly, to increase actions for Torah and fear of heaven.

DO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THE DECEIVERS

Rabbi Ytzchak opened and said (Psalms 37:1): “Do not pay attention to the deceivers”, Who are the deceivers? For it is not written sinners or evildoers but deceivers, for they deceive themselves and those who befriend them. Rabbi Yehuda said: Deceivers, get away from the deceivers, so that you will not befriend yourself with their acts and you will then be part of their sins. Come and see: If there was no Erev Rav those that united with Israel, that act would not have been done, and all those who died from Israel would not have died, and all that was caused upon Israel would not have been caused. And come and see that act and that sin indeed caused exile for Israel. For we learned that the Holy One Blessed be He wanted Israel to be on the level of the superior angels at that point, and to make them free from everything, free from death, free from the yoke of the other nations, as it is written CHIRUT AL HA LUCHOT; AL TIKRE CHIRUT ELA CHERUT (Free). Now that the act was done, it caused everything, it caused the yoke of other nations, it caused that those tablets were broken, it caused a few thousand to die among Israel, and all this because of associating with the Erev Rav that went along with them. Zohar ha Kaddosh II, 45b

EVEN THE GOOD THINGS THAT THE EREV RAV DO,HAVE TO BE TREATED WITH CONTEMPT

The root of our deficiency comes from what the Erev Rav do to us. As it is written in the Zohar: “They (The Erev Rav) damage Israel more than all the nations”. And one has to strengthen oneself with great faith (EMUNA), because Israel were redeemed from Mitzrayim only in the merit of faith, and so it will be with the future redemption, that we will need great faith because we will see how the ways of evildoers succeed… and even if we see in them (The Erev Rav) good things like Torah and tradition and good manners and in particular they make peace with everybody and peace is the foundation of everything, and it is a very good trait, even so, as in the case of a sick person that needs to have his blood extracted even though the soul is in the blood, so it will be in the days prior to Mashiach, we must reject all these people even when they have good aspects in their behavior because then will be time of Clarification and selection and this will be the trial and choice in those days. (Divre Simcha by Rabbi Simcha Ysachar Ber Chalberstam, zt’l).

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!! The Erev Rav is all about mixture. Hashem commands us to be holy, i.e. to be set apart or separated out from the unholy! The Erev Rav would have us mix up with everyone. If you see or hear a "Jew" encourage and advocate for unity with Eisav or Yishmael or the Erev Rav...he is himself part of the Erev Rav and must be avoided at all costs.

It is precisely the study of the Holy Zohar, in these passages which describe for us the battle against the Erev Rav, that we will find the way to bring Mashiach and the Final Redemption.

Our Great rabbis through all generations, taught that the complete redemption depends precisely on the
study of the Zohar ha Kaddosh.

THE SEFER HA ZOHAR WHICH IS THE TREE OF LIFE BREAKS THE FORCE OF THE EREV RAV

And because Israel will in the future taste from the Tree of life which is this Sefer haZohar, through it they will come out of exile with mercy and it will be fulfilled upon them: “Hashem alone will have compassion on them and there is not with Him a foreign god” And the tree of good and evil, which is ISUR VE HETER; TUMA VE TAHARA will not rule over Israel anymore for their sustenance will then come only from the tree of life, for in that place there is no difficulty KUSHIA from the side of evil and no argument MACHLOKET from the spirit of impurity for it is written: “For the spirit of impurity I will make to pass away from the land”, so that the Talmide Chachamim will have no need to receive sustenance from the AME ha ARETZ, but from the side of good, that eat TAHARA CASHER VE HETER, and not from the Erev Rav that eat TUMAH PASSUL ASSUR, that they are impure, that they make themselves impure through NIDDA SHIFCHA GOYYA AND ZONA for they are sons of Lillit, and on them it is written: For from the root of NACHASH came out TZEFA… Zohar ha Kaddosh III Parashat Nasso Raaya Mehemna 124ª


Some final words:

OUR HOPE SHOULD NOT LIE ON GREAT MEN BUT ON SIMPLE JEWS

And we should not rely and hope for the great men to bring us the Redeemer with their merits and prayers because The One who looks into the hearts is The One who knows the greatness of a person and not the one who looks into the eyes. But every single Jew, even if he is not great in Torah or learning in general must fight for our Father in heaven, that He will rule over the earth and to fight for our land the heritage of our fathers, with the Mitzvot that he performs and to concentrate on every Mitzvah only on rescuing the Holy One Blessed be He and His Shechina from exile (KUDSHA BERICH CHU U SHCHINTE MIN HA GALUT). And to rescue G-d will be all his intention because it is written in the Shulchan Aruch (Yore Deah) that the rescuing of captives takes precedence from all other acts of righteousness, and it is forbidden to waste even a minute from this pursuit and if this is the law regarding a man towards another, how much more must we do this to rescue a nation and his G-d which is the main form of rescuing captives. And let no man say in his heart: “What am I and what is my measure, so that there should be strength in my Mitzvot to accomplish something like this?” Because by having the proper intention the Mitzvah acquires a great measure and great strength, if the person will concentrate to rescue the Holy One blessed be He and His Shechina from exile. Through this the year of our redemption will speedily come and we will build Zion and all the cities of Yehuda and the land of Israel, and the Honor of G-d will dwell in Yerushalaim that the Holy one will establish.

THOSE WHO FEAR HASHEM NEED STRENGTH NOT TO FOLLOW THE PATH OF DECEPTION OF THE MAJORITY

The prophet Malachi already spoke about the great hiding of the face of Hashem and the great confusion of minds and ideas before the arrival of Mashiach because the evildoers and the actions of the Satan will be successful and the trials and the strength needed will be great, and there will be no possibility of talking about the truth and about faith in front of the multitudes… Therefore the prophet said: “Then those who fear Hashem spoke each one to his fellow” that those who fear Hashem will have to strengthen themselves that they should not err and go after the mistaken people and after the majority, and one should help his fellow man and strengthen him and tell him: “Be strong” and the Holy One blessed is He who searches the heart and kidneys, will test their words. (Maskil el Dal)

THE MAIN DRIVE OF THE EREV RAV IS TO UNIFY EISAV AND YISHMAEL AND TO SEPARATE THE TWO MOSHIACHS. THEREFORE, OUR MAIN SERVICE AND BATTLE IS TO BREAK AND TO REMOVE THE STRENGTH OF THE EREV RAV, THE K'LIPAH OF ARMELIUS THE EVIL, FROM ISRAEL; THE EREV RAV IS OUR GREATEST ENEMY, THE ONE WHO SEPARATES THE TWO MOSHIACHS.

The purpose in our bringing about the ingathering of the exiles is to set up faithful people for the sake of the unification of the two moshiachs (i.e., Moshiach Ben Yosef and Moshiach Ben Dovid) in the gates of Jerusalem. This is in order to return the Divine Presence to bring about the redemption, the true redemption and sanctification of God's Name. According to our teacher, the Vilna Gaon, z"l, we can bring about, with the help of God and through these strong people, these two moshiachs, and to learn well all the levels and their purposes in practical terms. The general purpose of the two moshiachs, Moshiach Ben Yosef and Moshiach Ben Dovid, throughout all the generations has been to protect and fight against the three 'heads' of the K'lipos, Eisav, Yishmael, and the Erev Rav. The specific role of Moshiach Ben Yosef is against Eisav who is the k'lipah of the left, the main purpose of Moshiach Ben Dovid is against Yishmael, the k'lipah of the right, and together they go against Eisav and Yishmael who are the ox and the donkey from the side of impurity. The joining of Eisav and Yishmael is the result of Armelius, the sar of the Erev Rav, who are able to destroy Israel and the entire world, may God have mercy. The main drive of the Erev Rav is to unify Eisav and Yishmael and to separate the two moshiachs. Therefore, our main service and battle is to break and to remove the strength of the Erev Rav, the k'lipah of Armelius the Evil, from Israel; the Erev Rav is our greatest enemy, the one who separates the two moshiachs. The k'lipah of the Erev Rav works only through deception and roundabout ways. Therefore, the war against the Erev Rav is the most difficult and bitterest of all. We must strengthen ourselves for this war, and anyone who does not participate in the battle against the Erev Rav becomes, de facto, a partner with the k'lipah of the Erev Rav, and was better off not being born in the first place. (Kol HaTor, Chapter 2, Section 2, Letter 'bais')

NO ONE is exempt from this Milchamah Mitzvah!! See you on the battlefield...

Consequences

B"H

18 Shevat 5770


Dear Children of Israel,
BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF MASHIACH THE WICKED WILL PROSPER AND MANY JEWS WILL ERR AND SAY THAT THE WAY OF THE WICKED IS THE RIGHT ONE AND WILL PRAISE THEM IN THEIR HEART

It is written in Malachi Chapter 3 13-15: “Your words have been strong against me, says the Lord. Yet you say, How have we spoken against you? You have said: It is vain to serve G-d; and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts? And now we call the arrogant happy; those who work wickedness prosper; even those who tempt G-d escape.

THE FACT THAT WE PRAISE THOSE WHO ARE WELL OFF EVEN WHEN THEY GO AGAINST G-D AND HIS MITZVOT MAKES US SAY TO OURSELVES: “IT IS USELESS TO SERVE HASHEM” G-D FORBID

In this way we will understand what is written in Malachi, for it doesn’t refer to people who say openly “It is useless to serve G-d”… But the intention of the prophet is all those Jews that will keep the Torah and the Mitzvot of G-d blessed be His name, but will nevertheless praise the actions of the wicked and evildoers and will say: “Those who work wickedness prosper; even those who tempt G-d escape” and they will praise the success of the wicked…And this is what the Holy One Blessed be He will answer them: “You have said: It is vain to serve G-d” meaning by praising the success of the wicked and recount of the miracles of the feats of evildoers, by this you are clearly saying “It is useless to serve G-d” and there is no profit in it, G-d forbid. (Maskil el Dal)

The consequences of being connected to the Erev Rav are dire. We already know that we lost the first redemption over this crew. And they delay the final redemption.
HOW MANY GOOD THINGS WERE WITHELD FROM THE JEWS ON ACCOUNT OF THE EREV RAV

AHARON AND HIS TWO SONS AND THE 70 ELDERS OF ISRAEL SINNED BY KEEPING QUIET AND NOT REBUKING AND NOT SAYING SOMETHING AGAINST THE EREV RAV WHEN THEY WANTED TO MAKE THE GOLDEN CALF

The Jews in general sinned with the Golden calf through thought, for when they saw how the Calf came out from the fire, they thought: Maybe there is something about the Golden Calf, but they did not sin through action for they did not make the Golden calf and they also said nothing about it, for it was made by the Erev Rav and they are the ones who said: These are your gods Israel, These are your gods and not These are our gods. Furthermore, it was Aharon and his two sons and the 70 elders of Israel who sinned by keeping quiet and not rebuking and not saying something against the Erev Rav when they wanted to do the Golden Calf, for they were the ones who went after Moshe when he ascended the mountain…and they were left in charge of the congregation…and they were the ones who heard from Moshe that he would return after 40 complete days. And when the Erev Rav saw that Moshe was delayed, they were the ones who had to say that they saw Moshe going up to Har Sinai and that he said that he would be back in 40 days and that they should wait…
Sefer Etz ha Daat Tov Shemini

AS LONG AS THE EREV RAV ARE WITH THE JEWS, HASHEM’S NAME IS NOT COMPLETE

In the end, when and as long as the Erev Rav are mixed within Israel, there is no proximity and union in the letters of YUD KE VAV KE. And immediately when they will be erased from the world it is said regarding the letters of Ha Kaddosh Baruch Hu (YUD KE VAV KE) (Zecharia 14) “On that day YUD KE VAV KE will be one as His name one”. And because of this ADAM who is indeed ISRAEL they have union with the Torah which is a Tree of life to those who hold fast by it… Zohar ha Kaddosh I 27b

BECAUSE OF THE EREV RAV ISRAEL WENT TO EXILE...


Tomorrow, IY"H, we'll share final thoughts on this subject.

Until then...
