Audio on the Giving of the Torah – part 1 by Menachem Gottlieb

posted in: English Divrei Torah | 0

Editor’s introduction: Only the first part of this audio shiur will be presented at this web site. It should also be stressed that Judaism recognizes a middle status between idol worshiper and Jew called a Gair Toshav. According to the Talmud, tractate Avoda Zara 24b, Aravna listed in the last chapter of the book of (II) Samuel, who sold his land to King David during a plague was a Gair Toshav. Rashi on tractate Avoda Zara 24b, when defining Gair Toshav explains, that he (Aravna) accepted the seven laws of Noah

Even When Gentiles Are Idol Worshipers, Jews Are Subject to the Ways of Peace Laws of the Talmud, tractate Gittin 61a

translation by

The mishna teaches: One does not protest against poor gentiles who come to take gleanings, forgotten sheaves, and the produce in the corner of the field, which is given to the poor [pe’a], although they are meant exclusively for the Jewish poor, on account of the ways of peace. Similarly, the Sages taught in a baraita (Tosefta 5:4): One sustains poor gentiles along with poor Jewsand one visits sick gentiles along with sick Jews, and one buries dead gentiles along with dead Jews. All this is done on account of the ways of peace, to foster peaceful relations between Jews and gentiles.

Among the topics covered:

  • The meaning behind the names of the mountain that G-d gave the Torah on
  • The Special Jewish soul
  • If the Jewish people had not accepted the Torah G-d would have destroyed the world
  • G-d offered the Torah to all nations
  • G-d had wanted Adam to accept all the Torah
  • Willingness to be in the army of G-d
  • The supernatural signs when G-d gave the Torah

A Call For Prayers

In the name of unity, Netanyahu has not fired the “woke generals” that contributed greatly to the disaster of the massacre on Simchat Torah 5784, (Oct. 7th 2023). He has also given considerable say to left-wing politicians that want to water down the definition of victory and fight the war according to Biden’s dictates.  In our opinion most of the deaths of Israeli soldiers in this current Gaza war could have been prevented if the I.D.F. had fired “woke generals”, stopped abiding by “purity of arms” and would put winning the war as a priority over freeing hostages or pleasing Biden with “humanitarian gestures” to the enemy population.

Last summer as a result of the “Woke policies” of the I.D.F. Menachem Gottlieb’s son was seriously injured in a terror attack. Below is a picture of his son’s car riddled with bullets.
A female passenger was killed in the attack.
