2. David Tempelhoff: Encounter with an Israeli
Subject: Re: "Brit-Am Now"-875
A quick comment.
On Friday afternoon I had the privilege of eating at my favorite eating establishment
in the city in which I live.
Israeli family recently opened a Falafel Restaurant. " Excellent Food"
I eat there almost everyday.
Anyway, I met an Israeli man my age ( 37) he is from a farming family in Haifa
and has been in America for 8 years.
He currently buys and sells various goods.
He was telling me about auctions that he attends weekly in my city.
I told him I wish I could go to the auctions but they were on Sabbath.
He looked at me and said " how do you know about the Sabbath and the feasts
of God, are you a Jew?"
I looked at him and said "no I am not a Jew but i believe in the commandments of God"
He looked shocked.
My heart was burning. I wanted to grab him and say. If we all kept Gods commandments and feared his name we would be blessed of God and drive out the enemies of Israeli in the Holy land.
Bible says" if we keep the commandments of God......One will put 100 to flight and 5 will put 1000"
Womb,land, family, bread basket, etc will all be blessed.
If we disobey we will be cursed and oppressed.
Its Black and white.
Only problem is we cant keep the commandments unless we love God with all our hearts and soul. That is a gift from God and we have to pray that we will be 'blessed with humility and a humble loving heart towards the God of Israel"
"Law and the testimony" Isaiah............................Commandments AND LOVE OF GOD.
Take care Yair,
3. The Maharal: Very Important Early Rabbinical Authority who thought along
The Maharal (1525-1609) was a very very important Rabbi.
It turns out that with almost Prophetic insight he thought along Brit-Am lines.
DETAILS WILL COME LATER.
Most of our subscribers however may well have never heard of this
The Maharal had contacts with John Dee (who also thought along Brit-Am lines)
the English philosophical emissary of Queen Elizabeth-1
The Maharal also met with
the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolph-11 and his family and advisors,
and with Tycho Braye the astronomer
and with other important thinkers of the time
including leading scientists whom in some opinions he influenced.
His style of writing is what is called dialectical in which he may say one
(as an intermediate summary of claims put forward) and then contradict it
For this reason his real intentions are not always clear.
Nevertheless his insights are valuable and it is customary for
groups of scholars to discuss his texts in groups.
It transpires that a short chapter of his on the Lost Ten Tribes strongly supports
Brit-Am as we will explain later.
in the meantime is some background Encyclopedia Information
in preparation for the revelations that we will inform you of a later date:
Extracts from Wikipedia
Judah Loew ben Bezalel
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Judah Lew ben Bezalel ("Judah Loew son of Bezalel", also written as Yehudah ben Bezalel Levai [or Loew], 1525 17 September 1609 or 18 Elul 5369 according to the Hebrew calendar) was an important Talmudic scholar, Jewish mystic, and philosopher who served as a leading rabbi in Prague (now in the Czech Republic) for most of his life.
He is widely known to scholars of Judaism as the Maharal of Prague, or simply as the Maharal ( " - MaHaRaL is the Hebrew acronym of Moreinu ha-Rav Loew, "Our Teacher the Rabbi Loew"). His descendants' surnames include Loewy and Lowy.
Within the world of Torah and Talmudic scholarship, he is known for his works on Jewish philosophy and Jewish mysticism and his supercommentary on Rashi's Torah commentary known as Gur Aryeh al HaTorah.
The Maharal was probably born in Pozna (now in Poland) to Rabbi Bezalel (Loew), whose family originated from the German town of Worms. His uncle Jacob was Reichsrabbiner ("Rabbi of the Empire") of the Holy Roman Empire, his brother Chaim of Friedberg a famous rabbinical scholar. Traditionally it is believed that the Maharal's family descended from the Babylonian Exilarchs (during the era of the geonim) and therefore also from the Davidic dynasty. He received his formal education in various yeshivas (Talmudical schools).
In the words of a modern writer, the Maharal "prevented the Balkanization of Jewish thought" (Adlerstein 2000, citing Rabbi Nachman Bulman). His systematic and analytical approach to Jewish philosophy has made his works to Jewish philosophy what the Shulkhan Arukh is for halakha (practical Jewish law).
His works inspired the Polish branch of Hasidism, as well as a more recent wave of Torah scholars originating from Lithuania and Latvia, most markedly Rabbi Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler (1892-1953) as well as Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook (1864-1935). A recent authority who had roots in both traditions was Rabbi Isaac Hutner (1906-1980). Rabbi Hutner succinctly defined the ethos of the Maharal's teachings as being Nistar BeLashon Nigleh, meaning (in Hebrew): "The Hidden in the language of the Revealed". As a mark of his devotion to the ways of the Maharal, Rabbi Hutner bestowed the name of the Maharal's key work the Gur Aryeh upon a branch of the yeshiva he headed when he established its kollel (a yeshiva for post-graduate Talmud scholars) which then became a division of the Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin in New York during the 1950s, known as Kollel Gur Aryeh. Both of these institutions, and the graduates they produce, continue to emphasize the serious teachings of the Maharal. Rabbi Hutner in turn also maintained that Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch (1808-1888) (Germany, 19th century) must also have been influenced by the Maharal's ideas basing his seemingly rationalistic Weltanschauung on the more abstract and abstruse teachings of the hard-to-understand Jewish Kabbalah.
Rabbi Judah Loew was not a champion of the open study of Kabbalah as such, and none of his works are in any way openly devoted to it. According to him, only the greatest of Torah scholars are able to discern his true original inspirations and the intellectual framework for his ideas in their complex entirety. Nevertheless, Kabbalistic ideas permeate his writings in a rational and philosophic tone.
Although he could not reconcile himself to the investigations of Azariah di Rossi, he diffused the tension between the Aggada (narrative, non-legal parts of the Talmud) and rationalism by his allegorical interpretations of difficult passages. He was entirely in favor of scientific research in so far as the latter did not contradict divine revelation, all the while insisting on finding deep meaning in all the contributions of Talmudic teachers.
It is claimed in some circles of Orthodox Judaism, and in the book "The Lubavitcher Rebbe's Memoirs" that the Maharal's lineage is from the Davidic line running all the way back to the original Judah. The Maharal's synagogue in Prague, the Altneushul, is still in use.

Yehuda Loew The Maharal
Rabbi Kook stated that the "Maharal was the father of the approach of the Gaon of Vilna on the one hand, and of the father of Chasidut, on the other hand." Rabbi Shneur Zalman, founder of Chabad Chasidism, and a direct descendant of the Maharal, bases much of his famous work - the Tanya - on the teachings of his great grandfather.
The Maharal made some important observations concerning
the Lost Ten Tribes that are especially significant from a Brit-Am

5. Lactose Intolerance an Outcome of Pasteurization?
From: Jeff & Tammy Quackenbush <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: Re: "Brit-Am Now"-874
Based on my personal experience and the personal experience of a few of my
friends, I agree that pasteurization may very well explain why so many people
of European descent have problems with lactose intolerance in the modern age.
I can drink raw milk (of any kind) and eat cheese made with raw milk of any kind but if I drink something with pasteurised milk in it or eat cheese made from pasterurised milk, I get sick.
Windsor, CA USA
Brit-Am Comment: The medical details are not our field but the impression
(also borne out by letters to this list on the subject) is that there is a general
inherited lactose intolerance that begins in early adulthood mainly for the milk of cows
but can also apply to other milk.
This is cultural and extends throughout whole nations or sections of the nation.
In addition there is an acquired intolerance that can be temporary or partial
or vary from time to time and may be triggered off by a host of things.
For example, take myself,
I personally love milk products and all my life have consumed them nearly every day.
My parents owned a "Milk Bar" and milkshakes were a staple diet of my childhood
It happens however that in Israel in the Spring Time in some (but not all) years I suffer
from a severe bout of sneezing to the effect that I am almost incapacitated.
When this happens both doctors advice and my own experience has taught
me that the best solution is to lay off milk products for a month or so.
This could be considered a type of lactose intolerance.
