1. Jim Wright: A Christian Perspective on the Jewish New Year.
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1754
#7. Steven Collins: Accepts the Hillel II calculations of modern Orthodox Judaism as authoritative!

Greetings Yair Davidiy -
First off I want to wish you a happy birthday and I hope you have many more.
Some thoughts on your gout - my great-uncle suffered greatly with gout for 20 years, then he started to have some tooth pain that was too severe to live with and he went to a dentist and had a tooth or two pulled that had been irritating him for years and it cured his gout overnight and he never suffered from gout again (he lived 20 more years).
And lastly I agree with Steven Collins, Yeshua said the Pharisees and Scribes sit in Moses' Seat and we are to obey them unless they are in conflict with scripture:
So I start my New Year in the spring as commanded and I do not use pagan names for the months.
I have never encountered a person who was on Moon spotting or the Karaite Calender who had any understanding, at all, of the origins of The Hebrew Calender and the average lunar month obtained from the Bible Codes.
This average (29.53094 days) is more accurate than NASA was able to achieve until the late 1990's (using computers and satellites) and is the most accurate of any culture, and comes straight out of The Torah by way of permutation.
Dr Jeffery Satinover has some information in his book "Cracking the Bible Codes", in particular in Appendix A and Professor Haralick has some info on his website:

Many Blessings -
Jim Wright

2. Amberli: I stand for Israel!!!
Mr. Davidiy,

...My prayers are with you and your Israeli countrymen this week as things heat up at the UN. I believe with all my heart that the Great God of Heaven will preserve and protect the great nation of Israel and the choice, HIS CHOSEN, people that live there, including you.

I stand for Israel!!!


3. Ira (Australia) : Rosh HaShana, Clarification.
Re Brit-Am Now no. 1753.
#2. Query from Ira about the Hebrew New Years Day and the Bible.

Shalom Yair, Of course, I know your name is Yair, I do not know why I called you David. Silly mistake, I apologise..... no offence meant.
.. I see there is a lot more involved when you consider the works other than the Torah...  I have been following you on and off for many years actually and feel I know you quite well.
Shalom, Ira

4. Robert Graves:  Thanks to Brit-Am.
Re: Job 2: 4- 10 Naval - Folly- Death- and the Inner Truth of us all.
Shalom Yair,

To often important the important work you do in giving us insights. such as this one, goes uncomplimented and this should not be so. I have been the recipient of your wisdom and knowledge for many years now and I have been derelict in my duty to express my heart felt appreciation for your scriptural explanations from a Jewish standpoint as well as for all the excellent work you have given all of us who 'tune-in' to and support Brit-AM.
Thanks Yair from the bottom of my heart.

5. Answer to Query About Eastern Sephardic Jews and Ten Tribes.
Amnon Goldberg  wrote:
What is your opinion of Kabbalist R.David Katz of Safed's opinion
at two-thirds through his shiur on Shir Hashirim 6:4 that it is the Sephardim who are the Ten Lost Tribes?

Brit-Am Reply:

I could not access the link you gave me.
Perhaps something is wrong with it or else the fault is at my end.
At all events, a minority opinion exists that the Ten Tribes became the Ashkenazic Jews or some of them.
The Natziv may have held this opinion.
Most seem to have not.

As for the Sephardim,

#7. Descendants of Ephraim Amongst the Jews of Morocco?
(speaks of Morocco and Tunisia).
There are also traditions amongst the Jews of Bukhara and the Caucasus etc.
Our studies on the subject indicate that these traditions mostly reflect a historical reality prior to the Jewish settlement in those places.

6. Answer to Query and the "Hiddeness" of Australia?
Stephen wrote:
Shalom Gday From Australia to whom this may concern of the BritAm website, I have a question running around in my mind to find out What Australia would translate & mean in the Hebrew, with it broken up to see its hebrew interpretation into English?
Im not sure if you know the answer to it or not, and i certaintly hope you recieve this email.
Aust ra li yah, or Aus tra liyah or Austr aliyah, if you can think of any more an their interpretation, it would be much appreciated.
God Bless from Stephen

Brit-Am Reply:
Stephen Shalom,
This is an interesting question.
It is the kind of query from which valuable insights develop.
Nevertheless, I am not sure that I can provide a useful answer at the moment.
Perhaps someone else will?

One possible suggestion could be:

Australia in Hebrew could be written with letters saying Ostir-Li-Ya.
This is not good Hebrew but grammatically it could be understood to say:

I will hide [Ostir] for me [Li]-Yah.

Perhaps it is hinting at
Isaiah 54:8
With a little wrath I hid [Hebrew: Histarti] My face from you for a moment;
But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,
Says the LORD, your Redeemer.

The whole of Isaiah 54 may be referring to the Ten Tribes, cf.
2 Enlarge the place of your tent,
And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;
Do not spare;
Lengthen your cords,
And strengthen your stakes.
3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left,
And your descendants will inherit the nations,
And make the desolate cities inhabited.
4 Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed;
Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame;
For you will forget the shame of your youth,
And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.
5 For your Maker is your husband,
The LORD of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.

See also the Brit-Am Commentary to Isaiah 54.
This is still mainly on Judah who will return prior to the Ten Tribes and prepare the way for them. Judah will rebuild the waste places.
