Monde de la Torah – Enterrement du Rav Ovadia Yossef (Infos, photos, vidéos)

8 Octobre 2013

850.000 personnes ont donc participé à l’enterrement géant du Rav Ovadia Yossef. A sa hauteur. 10% des israéliens présents, toutes tendances confondues, pour honorer une dernière fois le “Rav de tout Israel”. Sans compter que les femmes ont la coutume de pas assister à ces évènements à Jerusalem…

Jamais Israel n’avait connu un enterrement de cette envergure. Aucun homme politique ou autre personnalité publique n’a jamais reçu une reconnaissance pareille.

Première étape de cette longue Lévaya (enterrement) : la Mita (lit mortuaire) du Rav Ovadia Yossef a été déposé dans l’enceinte de la Yéchiva « Porat Yossef » à Jérusalem, établissement dans lequel il a étudié dans sa jeunesse et grandi jusqu’à devenir le Possek (décisionnaire) et le génie en Torah que nous avons connu.

Le Richon Létsion (Grand Rabbin Séfarade d’Israël), le Rav Chlomo Amar a ensuite lu 2 chapitres de Téhilim (Psaumes) pour donner la parole au Rav Chmouel Auerbach pour le premier Hesped (oraison funèbre).

Monde de la Torah – [Vidéo] 93 ans de Torah pour Rav Ovadia Yossef, lumière de notre génération

8 Octobre 2013

Découvrez un diaporama émouvant composé de photos et de vidéos sur la lumière de notre génération, Rav Ovadia Yossef.

Toute sa vie, Rav Ovadia Yossef ne l’a consacrée qu’à l’étude de la Torah.

Depuis son enfance, il ne s’intéressait pas aux futilités de ce monde. Déjà, il n’aspirait qu’à une seule chose, étudier encore une ligne, une page, une Halakha ou un passage du Talmud. C’est là le secret de la réussite, celui qui permet de grandir, de s’épanouir et de faire partie de ceux qu’évoque le verset :« Israël, par toi je serai glorifié ».

Puisse ce documentaire apporter encore plus de crainte du Ciel et de confiance en nos Sages, amen.

Torah-Box & vous – Vos Prières pour la Hiloula de Notre Mère Rahel

8 Octobre 2013

Hiloula de “Rahel notre mère” dans quelques jours !Le 15 Octobre 2013 aura lieu l’un des plus grands moments de l’année soit la Hiloula, l’anniversaire de décès de Ra’hel Iménou, notre sainte Matriarche Rachel”, sa mémoire est source de bénédictions.

Nos Sages nous enseignent que le jour de la Hiloula, les portes du Ciel sont grandes ouvertes, et les Saints peuvent intervenir en notre faveur afin que nos prières soient agréées.

Le commentateur “Rachi” (Midrach Raba-Berechit 49–7) rapporte que notre Mère Rachel fut enterrée sur la route de Beth Le’hem afin que ses enfants en exil puissent prier sur sa tombe et qu’elle puisse prier pour eux, tant c’est important !

Plus que cela, le Zohar (3 – 70b) affirme que “sans les prières des Tsadikim, le monde ne pourrait pas perdurer un seul instant“. Les Tsadikim protègent le monde, plus encore après leur mort que pendant leur vie terrestre.

Profitons ensemble de ce grand moment.

Notre Yéchiva prie pour vous – transmettez vos demandes !Le jour de cette Hiloula, les étudiants et Rabbanim de notre Yéchiva “Vayizra’ Itshak / Torah-Box” dédieront une journée d’étude de Torah et prieront pour toutes vos demandes de bénédictions : réussite matérielle, mariage, enfants, santé, téchouva, chalom bayit, élévation d’âme, bonne délivrance,…

Pour envoyer vos demandes de bénédictions :1/ Cliquez sur le lien : http://www.torah-box.com/hiloula/rah-el-imenou-notre-matriarche-rachel-5/

2/ Transmettez vos noms à travers le formulaire : elles seront transmises à la Yéchiva le jour de la Hiloula de Ra’hel Iménou.

Monde de la Torah – Rav Ovadia Yossef est décédé le 7 Octobre 2013

7 Octobre 2013

Baroukh Dayan haEmet – Rav Ovadia Yossef, pilier du monde, couronne de la Torah depuis des dizaines d’années, a rejoint son Créateur ce lundi 7 octobre 2013 à 13h15 (heure israélienne).

Depuis ce matin, des dizaines voire des milliers de personnes priaient pour sa guérison après que son état de santé se soit dégradé brusquement. A l’hôpital, combien ne se sont pas réunis jusqu’aux dernières minutes, récitant les Séli’hot.

Dans la rue, on pleure déjà ‘Maran’, des jeunes filles aux mamans en passant par toute cette génération de Juifs qui a été influencée depuis des dizaines d’années par les décisions halakhiques de cet homme hors du commun.

Des milliers de personnes sont arrivés à son domicile, rue Hakablan 45, pleurant et effectuant la Kri’a(déchirure de la chemise en signe de deuil).

Il devrait être enterré près de son épouse dans le cimetière de Sanhédria, non loin également de sa ‘havrouta principale, le Gaon Rav Bentsion Abba-Chaoul.

Le Rav Steinman a demandé à tous les étudiants en Yéchiva au-dessus de 18 ans d’arrêter leur étude et de se rendre tous à l’enterrement.

Le Rav Eliezer Berland, chef spirituel du monde “Breslev” a expliqué : “Vous tous, chaque juifs, êtes ‘cachers’ par le mérite de Rav Ovadia Yossef, et les Baalei Techouva lui doivent leur judaisme“.

Rav Shmouel Auerbach est tombé en larmes en apprenant la nouvelle et a dit : “Vous êtes nombreux à lui devoir votre Torah, votre Judaisme. Par son mérite, il a éduqué tout le peuple d’Israel et s’est battu fort contre la loi d’enrôlement des étudiants de Yéchiva à l’armée“.

Liste des personnalités qui prononceront un Hesped (oraison funèbre) : Rav Steinman, Rav Chalom Cohen, Rav Bakchi-Doron, Admour de Belz, Admour de Tsanz, Rav Itshak Yossef, Rav David Lau, Rav Chimon Baadani, Rav David Yossef, Rav Chlomo Amar.

Levaya / Enterrement

Levée du corps prévue à 18h00 (heure israélienne) depuis la Yéchivat Porat Yossef du quartier de Guéoula (re’hov Malkhei Israel), pour ce qui devrait être l’enterrement le plus impressionnant de l’histoire, puisqu’on attend 1 million de personnes.

La police a informé que de nombreuses rues autour du cimetière seront fermés à la circulation. Pour ne pas être bloqué en pleine route, il est conseillé à tous ceux qui souhaitent s’y rendre, de partir des villes hors-Jerusalem à 15h au plus tard.

[15h00]

Depuis l’annonce du décès, le groupe de sauvetage “I’houd Atsala” est contactée pour de nombreux évanouissements et faiblesses.

Le Rav Shmouel Auerbach vient d’ajouter que les étudiants de Collel et Yéchiva doivent venir à la lévaya.

[15h04]

Le Rav Chlomo Amar, ancien Grand Rabbin d’Israël a déclaré, lors d’une courte allocution devant l’hôpital Hadassa de Jérusalem où le Rav Ovadia est décédé :

Il ne s’agissait pas du ‘Grand de LA génération’ car sa grandeur a dominé plusieurs générations. Tous doivent cesser leurs activités professionnelles et leur Etude de la Torah pour se rendre à sa Lévaya (enterrement). Depuis l’âge de 40 ans, il se prononçait sur le sujets les plus graves, qui pourra soutenir les décisionnaires questionnés sur les cas de femmes Agounot (dont le mari a disparu sans donner le Guet), statuer sur les Mamzérim (enfants adultérins) ou des situations qui impliquent la vie humaine ?

[15h31]

Le monde politique israélien dans son ensemble s’incline devant la grandeur de Maran :

Le Rav Aryé Dehry, leader du Chass (mouvement ultra-orthodoxe séfarade dirigé depuis sa création par le Rav Ovadia) :

Malheur à moi d’avoir atteint ce jour où je suis contraint d’annoncer le décès de notre père, notre guide, le soleil s’est éteint…nous sommes orphelins. Hachem a donné, Hachem a repris, que le nom d’Hachem soit loué à tout jamais ! Maitre du monde, nous accpetons Ton décret mais comment pourrions-nous continuer tous seuls ? Qui nous guidera, nous nous sentons vraiment orphelins”.

Nos Sages – Rav Ovadia : “On sauve une âme juive avec dévouement et empressement”

9 Octobre 2013

A la fin de son cours hebdomadaire après ChabbathRav Ovadia Yossef descendait les marches de la synagogue quand un juif, qui semblait avoir opéré depuis peu son retour aux sources, l’aborda et lui embrassa la main.

Il lui demanda : « Le Rav pourrait-il écrire quelques mots à l’attention de ma femme, pour lui dire qu’il est interdit de posséder une télévision à la maison ? C’est un sujet de tensions importantes entre nous qui risque de mettre en péril la paix dans notre couple. »

Le Rav lui répondit : « Je viens immédiatement chez vous pour lui expliquer que posséder cet appareiltamé est interdit. C’est un instrument qui abime et détruit l’âme des enfants et de tous les membres de la maison. »

L’homme lui dit : « Cela me gêne que le Rav se dérange, en particulier à une heure si tardive. Le Ravpourrait se contenter d’écrire une petite lettre, c’est suffisant. » Mais Rav Ovadia Yossef s’obstina : « C’est inutile. Je viens tout de suite et avec l’aide de D.ieu, j’espère la convaincre ! » L’homme accepta et ajouta : « S’il en est ainsi, je vais avertir ma femme que le Rav va venir demain. Quelle heure convient au Rav ? » Cependant, le Rav réitéra sa volonté de venir immédiatement : « Il est interdit d’attendre jusqu’à demain. Où habitez-vous ? » « Dans le quartier de Ramot à Jerusalem », répondit l’homme. « Venez, mettons-nous en route rapidement », décida le Rav.

Le mari téléphona à sa femme et l’avertit de la venue du Rav : « C’est un grand honneur et une bénédiction pour notre maison. » La femme s’en réjouit et, en attendant, prépara l’accueil de cet invité prestigieux. A leur arrivée, le Rav s’installa avec le couple. Il commença à dire des paroles de Moussar, à expliquer combien cet instrument détestable s’appropriait et détruisait tout ce qu’il y a de bon dans les foyers juifs, que D.ieu nous en préserve.

Lekh Lékha – Lekh Lékha : celui qui rapproche ses frères du Créateur…

7 Octobre 2013

Dans notre paracha “Lekh Lekha” (12, 5) il est écrit : וְאֶת הַנֶּפֶשׁ אֲשֶׁר עָשׂוּ בְחָרָן (“Et les gens qu’il avait faits à ’Haran)

Le commentateur Rachi explique ce verset de la façon suivante : « Qu’ils avaient faits (assou) à ’Haran – Qu’ils avaient fait entrer sous les ailes de la chekhina. Avraham convertissait les hommes, et Saraï convertissait les femmes, de sorte que le texte leur en tient compte comme s’ils les avaient “faits.” »

Ce passage souligne l’importance considérable revêtue par le zikouï harabim – l’action de donner des mérites à la collectivité. Dans son ouvrage ’Hovot Halevavot, Rabbénou Bé’hayé écrit d’ailleurs que même le plus grand des justes, celui qui est parvenu à l’amendement total de ses qualités morales, voire qui s’est rapproché du niveau spirituel des anges célestes dans leurs qualités morales et leurs habitudes vertueuses, n’égale pas les mérites de celui qui ramène ses frères égarés sur le droit chemin et les rapproche de leur Créateur. Et pour cause, la récompense qui l’attend est proportionnelle aux mérites indénombrables acquis par ces Juifs revenus à la Torah sous son influence, et par leurs descendants à jamais.

Weekly Parsha logo

Weekly Parsha

The Torah now proceeds from the general and universal story of humankind to concentrate on the particular and individual story of the founding of the Jewish people. The story of Avraham and Sarah, their difficulties and challenges, their loneliness and spiritual quest, form the essence of this parsha and the next one as well. In this life story they create the prototype for all later Jewish and familial society. The Torah, unlike many more pious modern books of today, avoids painting for us a blissful picture of righteous people being blessed with serenity and perfection of character and behavior. Rather, it shows us the ever present challenges to faith in the Almighty, the…

In My Opinion

I am not usually given to interpreting prophecy or dealing with messianic and/or apocalyptic visions. However, I have recently been reviewing the book of the prophet Yechezkel and could not help but think that many of the prophecies recorded in the middle section of the book are eerily similar to events that are occurring in our present day Middle Eastern part of the world. The prophet describes the demise of Tyre and Sidon (Lebanon) through bloodshed, economic weakness and civil turmoil. He predicts an awful war of bloodshed in Syria, Babylonia (Iraq), Yemen and Arabia. Libya and Egypt will also be beset by civil war, much bloodshed and death, and economic deprivation. At the same…

Jewish Children (Yudishe Kinder)
SHOLEM ALEICHEM (1859 – 1916), translated by Hannah BERMAN (1883 – 1955)
Although written from a child’s perspective, this is not a kids book but a series of funny, poignant, and sometimes disturbing stories about life in a late 19th-century Russian-Jewish village — the world of my grandparents. Sholem Rabinovich (1859-1916) was born in Pereiaslav, Ukraine and later immigrated to New York. His short stories about Tevye and his daughters were freely adapted into the musical FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. Rabinovich’s will contained the following injunction: “Let my name be recalled with laughter or not at all.” His translator, Hannah Berman, was Irish of Lithuanian descent. Some of these stories may be too intense for younger children. (summary by Adrian Praetzellis)

The Jewniverse

October 10, 2013
A New Play Wakes up and Smells the Russian-Jewish BorschtFor years academics have been arguing over what makes today’s Russian Jews Jewish. Religion? Language? Yiddishkait? No.

Covers, a new production by the Russian-Jewish-Americantheater group Lost and Found offers an answer to this question: books.

Based on personal stories of its young performers and writers,Covers is a multigenerational family drama: immigrant parents worry about their son, whose career climb is thwarted by a mental breakdown, and the cousins next door grapple with the death of their grandfather.

Always present in these dramas is Russian literature. Lots of it. Piled up on tables and floors and flung across the stage, some of these books are even used as sex toys. At the play’s end, in a lyrical denouement, each character, including the grandfather’s ghost, recite Russian poetry until their voices blend into a chorus.

In contrast with some of the immigration dramas of yesteryear, such as The Melting Pot by Israel ZangwillCoversdelivers no celebratory message of America the beautiful. Instead, the characters keep questioning their choices as they vacillate between nostalgia and resentment. They lost the old home, but what did they find in the new one? And who did they become in the process?

Actualité – [Vidéo] Lorsque Ra’hel Iménou protégea ses soldats à Gaza…

9 Octobre 2013

A l’occasion de la Hiloula de Notre Matriarche Rachel le 11 ‘ Hechvan pendant laquelle la Yéchiva “Vayizra’ Itshak” de Jerusalem priera pour toutes vos demandes, voici une histoire datant de Janvier 2009, lorsque nos soldats d’Israel combattaient à Gaza lors de l’opération “Plomb Durci”.
– Accès Vidéo : Rachel notre Matriarche à Gaza –

Ce dimanche 21 octobre 2012, le soldat de Tsahal Avner Azoulay s’est entretenu à la radio israélienne « Moréchét », et a raconté de sa propre voix l’histoire avec « Ra’hel iménou » lors de l’opération « Plomb durci » à Gaza.

Au cours de l’opération « Plomb durci » et après cette dernière, une rumeur sur des soldats ayant racontés que Ra’hel iménou se serait dévoilé à eux durant la guerre, en les mettant en garde contre l’entrée dans des bâtiments piégés, a parcouru tout le pays.

Torah-Box & vous – Vos Prières pour la Hiloula de Notre Mère Rahel

8 Octobre 2013

Hiloula de “Rahel notre mère” dans quelques jours !

Le 15 Octobre 2013 aura lieu l’un des plus grands moments de l’année soit la Hiloula, l’anniversaire de décès de Ra’hel Iménou, notre sainte Matriarche Rachel”, sa mémoire est source de bénédictions.

Nos Sages nous enseignent que le jour de la Hiloula, les portes du Ciel sont grandes ouvertes, et les Saints peuvent intervenir en notre faveur afin que nos prières soient agréées.

Le commentateur “Rachi” (Midrach Raba-Berechit 49–7) rapporte que notre Mère Rachel fut enterrée sur la route de Beth Le’hem afin que ses enfants en exil puissent prier sur sa tombe et qu’elle puisse prier pour eux, tant c’est important !

Plus que cela, le Zohar (3 – 70b) affirme que “sans les prières des Tsadikim, le monde ne pourrait pas perdurer un seul instant“. Les Tsadikim protègent le monde, plus encore après leur mort que pendant leur vie terrestre.

Profitons ensemble de ce grand moment.

Notre Yéchiva prie pour vous – transmettez vos demandes !

Le jour de cette Hiloula, les étudiants et Rabbanim de notre Yéchiva “Vayizra’ Itshak / Torah-Box” dédieront une journée d’étude de Torah et prieront pour toutes vos demandes de bénédictions : réussite matérielle, mariage, enfants, santé, téchouva, chalom bayit, élévation d’âme, bonne délivrance,…

Pour envoyer vos demandes de bénédictions :

1/ Cliquez sur le lien : http://www.torah-box.com/hiloula/rah-el-imenou-notre-matriarche-rachel-5/

2/ Transmettez vos noms à travers le formulaire : elles seront transmises à la Yéchiva le jour de la Hiloula de Ra’hel Iménou.

Education des enfants – L’enfant ? Lui apprendre à apprendre

7 Octobre 2013

Le Roi Salomon nous dit : חֲנֹךְ לַנַּעַר עַל פִּי דַרְכּוֹ גַּם כִּי יַזְקִין לֹא יָסוּר מִמֶּנָּה (“Eduque le jeune homme dès le début de sa vie, afin qu’il ne s’en écarte pas en vieillissant.”)

Ce verset de Michlé précise que le ’Hinoukh consiste à faire acquérir à l’enfant une bonne conduite afin qu’il la préserve quand il ne sera plus sous la tutelle de ses parents. Le Saba de Kelem remarque une anomalie : Chlomo dit d’éduquer l’enfant ‘afin qu’il ne s’en écarte pas’ – à quoi ce ‘s’en’ fait-il allusion ? A une bonne conduite ? Ce complément d’objet manque dans la première partie du verset ! Et de déduire : afin qu’il ne s’écarte de s’éduquer en vieillissant ! Le devoir d’apprendre à l’enfant à apprendre est explicite dans le verset !

Actualité – L’accès difficile au Tombeau de Ra’hel Iménou à Bethléem

7 Octobre 2013

A l’occasion de la Hiloula de Ra’hel Iménou le 11 ‘ Hechvan (ce 15 octobre) pendant laquelle notre Yéchiva priera pour toutes vos demandes depuis le Tombeau, voici un article qui nous rappelle le mérite de pouvoir accéder au Tombe de notre matriarche Rachel, ce qui n’a été possible qu’étape par étape depuis des décennies.

Même pendant les périodes les plus difficiles de leur histoire, les Juifs ont toujours fait leur pèlerinage sur le tombeau de Ra’hel Imeinou, (Rachel) à Bethléem. Mais aujourd’hui, grâce aux efforts de militants dévoués, ce sont des milliers de Juifs qui peuvent effectuer cette émouvante visite.

Une de ces militantes est Myriam Addani, de Bayit Vegan, fondatrice et directrice du Fonds pour le Kever Ra’hel et présidente de l’association ” Yech Sa’har liféoulate’h “, qui œuvre inlassablement à la préservation de l’accès juif au Kever Ra’hel et au maintien d’une présence juive en ce lieu.

Il n’a pas été facile de rencontrer Myriam Addani, mère de sept enfants qui est occupée jour et nuit par sa famille et par le Kever Ra’hel ; la première fois que nous l’avons contactée, elle préparait la visite au Kever Ra’hel du Rebbe de Sanz, qui est arrivé une demi-heure plus tard, accompagné de centaines de ‘Hassidim… Pendant notre interview, elle a été interrompue plusieurs fois par des appels de l’Agence juive, qui rénove le site, et qui avait besoin de l’autorisation de la police pour effectuer des changements sur les lieux. En quelques minutes, Mme Addani a obtenu l’autorisation nécessaire : ” Tout a commencé il y a 16 ans, raconte Myriam Addani, lorsque j’ai voulu faire quelque chose pour le Klal Israël. J’ai organisé une grande conférence à Jérusalem avec quelque 3 000 femmes, sur le sujet de l’unité d’Israël. À l’issue de cette réunion, nous avons décidé de travailler sur un sujet qui fasse l’objet d’un consensus pour tous les Juifs, et nous avons choisi le Kever Ra’hel “.

Nos Sages – Rav Ovadia : “On sauve une âme juive avec dévouement et empressement”

9 Octobre 2013

A la fin de son cours hebdomadaire après ChabbathRav Ovadia Yossef descendait les marches de la synagogue quand un juif, qui semblait avoir opéré depuis peu son retour aux sources, l’aborda et lui embrassa la main.

Il lui demanda : « Le Rav pourrait-il écrire quelques mots à l’attention de ma femme, pour lui dire qu’il est interdit de posséder une télévision à la maison ? C’est un sujet de tensions importantes entre nous qui risque de mettre en péril la paix dans notre couple. »

Le Rav lui répondit : « Je viens immédiatement chez vous pour lui expliquer que posséder cet appareiltamé est interdit. C’est un instrument qui abime et détruit l’âme des enfants et de tous les membres de la maison. »

L’homme lui dit : « Cela me gêne que le Rav se dérange, en particulier à une heure si tardive. Le Ravpourrait se contenter d’écrire une petite lettre, c’est suffisant. » Mais Rav Ovadia Yossef s’obstina : « C’est inutile. Je viens tout de suite et avec l’aide de D.ieu, j’espère la convaincre ! » L’homme accepta et ajouta : « S’il en est ainsi, je vais avertir ma femme que le Rav va venir demain. Quelle heure convient au Rav ? » Cependant, le Rav réitéra sa volonté de venir immédiatement : « Il est interdit d’attendre jusqu’à demain. Où habitez-vous ? » « Dans le quartier de Ramot à Jerusalem », répondit l’homme. « Venez, mettons-nous en route rapidement », décida le Rav.

Le mari téléphona à sa femme et l’avertit de la venue du Rav : « C’est un grand honneur et une bénédiction pour notre maison. » La femme s’en réjouit et, en attendant, prépara l’accueil de cet invité prestigieux. A leur arrivée, le Rav s’installa avec le couple. Il commença à dire des paroles de Moussar, à expliquer combien cet instrument détestable s’appropriait et détruisait tout ce qu’il y a de bon dans les foyers juifs, que D.ieu nous en préserve.

Legends of the Jews (FULL Audiobook) – part (1 of 16)

Legends of the Jews audiobook
by Louis Ginzberg (1873-1953)

Rabbi Louis Ginzberg was one of the outstanding Talmudists of the twentieth century. He was born on November 28, 1873, in Kovno, Lithuania; he died on November 11, 1953, in New York City. Ginzberg taught at the Jewish Theological seminary from 1903 to 1953. For 50 years, he trained two generations of Conservative Rabbis.

The Legends of the Jews is an epic 7-volume compilation of traditional Jewish stories loosely related to the Bible. Volumes 1-4 contain the stories, while volumes 5-7 contain Ginzberg’s notes and commentary. Over the millenia, these stories, which expand on the Bible, flesh out the lives of biblical figures. In the process, they help bring to life the Bible’s valuable lessons.

The Legends of the Jews has been called a monumental work of scholarship. It is studied by serious students of both Judaism and Christianity. And yet the stories continue to be accessible and understood by all. They were designed to impart lessons of the Torah, and any child or adult will find much to enjoy about this work.
