1. Letter from the Netherlands Confirms
Brit-Am Remark about Holland in Biblical Codes.
From: "Rogier van Asperen, "
Subject: Holland in Biblical Codes
Re Holland in Biblical Codes
#2. Holland, Abraham and Sarah
I'm Dutch and I just for the first time ever read your webpage about Holland in
Biblical Codes. It is a very interesting website to read (not sure if I follow
it all, and I'm not Jewish either). But at the end of the page you write this:
# We found a connection of Holland with
Joseph, Reuben, and Judah. Abraham and Sarah were seen to be especially
important for the Dutch. #
This latter part is absolutely right. In Holland, when a person reaches the age
of 50 you then either "see Sarah" (for a female) or see Abraham (for a male).
So when my dad reached the age of 50 we say that, "He sees Abraham".
Maybe this is something you didn't know yet and you might want to add it to the
page, as it's only in Holland that this "seeing of Sarah or Abraham" occurs.
2. First Replies to Brit-Am
(Shevat 5771, January 2011)
We received quite a few answers to our Questionnaire and more keep
coming in every hour or so.
We will publish all of them more or less in the order that they
reach us. So far, we have only posted three up on our site but more will go up
over the next few days.

3. What Difference Could a Rebuilt
Temple Make to Us?

I am curious...
What changes will be made to Judaism once the Beit HaMikdash
is rebuilt, and how will this affect 10-Israel?
First of all there are sources indicating that the return of the Ten Tribes
precedes the rebuilding of the Temple.
Indications are that Manasseh will be the first Tribe to return and that
Manasseh especially will be instrumental in the reconstruction of the Holy
# Jacob agreed only that Manasseh remain at his right-hand side for he is
destined to complete the quality ...of Jacob himself in the building of the
Third Temple ##. (quoted from Fishel Mael, "Hashevetim" p.490).
We identify Manasseh today primarily with the USA.
God says that HE will send HIS messenger before HIM to prepare the way and
rebuild the Temple (Malachi 3:1). Rav Saadia Gaon (b. ca. 890 CE) and Iben Ezra
(1080-1164 CE) said that the MESSENGERis the Messiah son of Joseph. The Messiah
son of Joseph, according to the Malbim (1809-1879) and others will be the future
head of the Lost Ten Tribes when they return to re-unite with Judah.
At least one Midrash (Pesikta Zutratha Lekach Tov, Balak,
Numbers 24;17) says that the Messiah Son of Joseph will rebuild the
Rabbeinu Bachiya on Leviticus/VaYikra chapter 11 felt that Edom [i.e.
Christianity in general?] would in the future help us rebuild the third Temple
and that the forces in the past that were harmful to us would return together
with other forces to help and
Anyway, all this is for the future and we cannot be sure but must wait and see.
Hypothetically however, if somehow we could wake up tomorrow morning and find a
rebuilt Temple already in place on the Temple mount what difference would it
Halachically-legally there are certain laws, rulings, and practices that would
need to be changed and modified.
Apart from that on the metaphysical level the existence of the Temple means a
closer awareness of the Divine Presence throughout the world.
It means we could be more certain as to who we were. We would know rather than
simply feel. Research in all areas including that concerning the Ten Tribes
would be more inspired and the results more certain. We would pray and the
answer be made known to us more directly and sooner than at present. The gift of
Prophecy would return, at least to some degree. For offences and sins we have
committed and impurities of mind and attitude we would find efficacious pathways
to purification open to us.
