WEEKLY STORY: Aliyah Funding

Aliyah Funding
Iyar 20, 5774 · May 20, 2014

 

Rabbi Meir of Premishlanwas such a holy person that many other holy men in their own right came to seek his advice and blessing. A certaintzaddik once came to see Rabbi Meir, asking for his blessing because he planned to settle in Eretz Yisrael. Rabbi Meir listened and then said,

“And how do you expect to raise the money for this journey?”

“I hope to visit some relatives. When I tell them of my plans, I am sure that they will help me raise the money.”

“I guarantee to raise the money for your traveling expenses.”

 

Rabbi Meir was sunk in thought. He seemed disturbed. “Your idea does not appeal to me. You will be wasting months of precious time which could be far better devoted to Torah study. But I see that you are determined to go. Let me suggest something: why don’t you stay here with me for some time first? I guarantee to raise the money for your traveling expenses.”

The visitor thought it over, then decided to accept the offer. The rebbe did not dismiss him, but told his attendant to show in the next person who was waiting to see him.

A rich man opened the door and was about to enter, when suddenly he spied the man already there. He hesitated on the threshold. Still, the attendant had told him to enter. Was there a mistake? He stood there, not knowing whether to advance or retreat. The passing moments seemed like an eternity. Finally Rabbi Meir spoke, telling him to enter.

“I have a story to tell you,” he said. Then, turning to the visiting tzaddik, he added, “But I would like you to hear it too.” Once again facing the rich man, he continued, “It has a worthwhile moral that will do both of you good.

But Avigdor was a very stingy person, a miser.

 

“Many years ago, there lived a very prosperous Jew who owned much property. But Avigdor was a very stingy person, a miser. He never let a person into his home. If a poor man came knocking at the door, begging for something to eat, he would tell him to go to his neighbor, Matisyahu, a worthy, G‑d-fearing Jew. ‘He will feel far more comfortable there,’ Avigdor would say to himself.

“And indeed, this was true. While Matisyahu was not a man of means like his wealthy neighbor, still his family always had food on their table. And there was always room for one person more, no matter how shabby or dirty the visitor. Reb Matisyahu’s home and heart were big enough for everyone in need.

“All of the townspeople felt a lot of respect for Matisyahu. He was so good, so kind . . . so hospitable! But if you think that they held him in higher esteem that the stingy Avigdor, you are wrong. It is human nature to respect a man with money, and they all treated Avigdor with a special reverence, even though they knew how stingy he was.

“The injustice of this caused turmoil in heaven. The angels came before the heavenly court demanding that Avigdor be stripped of his wealth, and that these riches be given to none other than Matisyahu the neighbor, who had never denied anyone his help or hospitality. But before the sentence was carried out, Eliyahu Hanavi (Elijah the prophet) came before the court and said, ‘A person should not be judged just by hearsay. I will descend to earth and give Avigdor one last chance. I must see if he really is such a miser.’

“So, Eliyahu disguised himself as a poor man and descended to earth. He knocked on Avigdor’s door. A servant answered. When he saw the poor, ragged, shivering man, he shooed him away. ‘Quick, be gone! Go, before my master sees you. He is a mean, cruel person. If he finds you here, he will throw both of us out of the house.’ He tried to slam the door shut, but the poor man had his foot in the doorway. ‘I won’t take anything. Just let me warm up by the stove for a few minutes. Don’t you see how cold it is outside?’

“They were still arguing when Avigdor himself arrived. ‘What’s going on here?’ he asked. ‘What do you want?’ he demanded of the ragged stranger.

“The servant was so terrified at having been caught speaking to a beggar that he was struck dumb with fear. But the stranger showed no awe of the master.

“‘I was asking if I could come in and warm up. I wanted a small glass of shnapps(strong liquor) for my freezing bones.’

“This is not a hotel, nor a charity hostel!”

 

“‘You must be out of your mind. This is not a hotel, nor a charity hostel!’ He turned to his servant, saying, ‘Throw this man out at once!’

“Even though he had wanted to be kind, the servant was forced to take the poor man by the lapels and turn him out the door. He shut it tightly behind him.

“Eliyahu Hanavi stood outside in the freezing weather, weeping, pleading to be let in just for a few minutes. When he saw that there was no reaction from within, that Avigdor had hardened his heart and was ignoring him, he really wept. He was weeping for Avigdor’s soul.

“Eliyahu returned to the heavenly court. He did not have good news. There was nothing he could say in Avigdor’s defense. The case rested. Avigdor would have to lose his fortune, as had been ruled.”

After a brief pause, Rabbi Meir continued his story. He raised his voice for emphasis.

“When I, Meir, heard of this sentence, I rushed forward to defend this Avigdor. ‘How can one mete out such dire punishment without warning?’ I asked the heavenly court. ‘I want to warn Avigdor,’ I declared. ‘I will not let him be trapped like a poor helpless fly in a spiderweb. Every Jew deserves a second chance! Allow me to be the court’s messenger. If Avigdor agrees to give four hundred rubles to this righteous Jew standing here for his traveling expenses to Eretz Yisrael, and if he resolves to mend his ways, he will get his second chance. But if,’ and here he lowered his voice, ‘G‑d forbid, he ignores this warning and persists in his stingy, evil ways, he will lose his entire fortune and become dependent upon the kindness of others for the rest of his days!’”

Rabbi Meir was silent. Turning to the rich man still standing in the door, he continued, “Avigdor is here right now. Let us ask him what he says.”

He burst into tears, then fell to the floor in a faint.

 

Avigdor could not speak. He burst into tears, then fell to the floor in a faint. The rebbe and the visitor tried to revive him. When he came back to consciousness, he turned to the rebbe, saying, “You are so right, Rebbe; that is exactly what happened! I sinned! I have been evil! But I will turn over a new leaf, I promise. But please, have mercy!”

He reached in his pocket and drew out his purse. He counted out four hundred rubles and gave them to the other man. “Please,” he begged, “when you reach Jerusalem, pray for me!”

With the four hundred rubles, the tzaddik and his family were able to go directly to Eretz Yisrael without delay.

As for Avigdor, his home became an open house for all wayfarers, troubled people and beggars. His reputation as a generous baal tzedakah (charity giver) traveled far and wide, and he used his great wealth to help his less-fortunate brethren in every way.

Biographical note:
Rabbi Meir of Primishlan [?–29 Iyar 1850] lived in abject but patient poverty, yet exerted himself tirelessly for the needy and the suffering. His ruach hakodesh(prophetic spirit) and his ready wit have become legendary. He wrote no works, but some of his teachings were collected and published by his chassidim after his death.

Jewish Documentary – Full Film

21.04.2009
http://JewishHistory.org Faith and Fate is a documentary telling the story of the Jews in the 20th Century.

The first Episode is called, “The Dawn of the Century” and covers 1900 – 1910.

This episode introduces the uniqueness of Jewish history in the 20th century within the
context of world history. At the turn of the 20th century, Jews were scattered across the
globe, representing only ¼ of one percent of the worlds population. It was a time of
empires, imperial rule and colonial expansionism. In Russia the masses, including the
Jews, lived in dire poverty which was compounded by grassroots antisemitism. In 1905
the Russian masses revolted and there was a general strike. On Bloody Sunday the
Czar responded with force. The Czar did not abdicate until 1917, which is typically the
date given for the second Russian Revolution, which, in turn, led to increased pogroms
against the Jews. The pogroms and the economic conditions forced approximately
40% of Jewish population to leave the Russian Empire and go to Western countries
including the United States and to Palestine and other countries as far away as South
Africa and Australia.

Emigration and the Enlightenment presented Jews with the dilemma and opportunity to
maintain or reject their traditional Jewish upbringing, and many decided to forgo their
traditional Judaism and blend in with their larger non-Jewish society. Within the
traditional Jewish world, change was occurring as well, with the rise and acceptance of
the Mussar Movement, an ethical approach to Judaism. Because Jews were not
allowed into institutions of higher education in Eastern Europe, most of them went to
study in yeshivas to sharpen their intellect. The traditional yeshiva, unintentionally,
became a breeding ground for all philosophies, Jewish and secular alike. Zionism
grew as a national movement, and was led by secular Jews antithetical to traditional
Judaism. While most rabbis rejected Zionism and its leaders, because of their
nontraditional beliefs, a minority of rabbis developed religious Zionism, which combined
traditional Judaism with Zionist philosophy. The Old Yishuv Jews, who had settled in
Palestine in the late 1800s, were committed to traditional Judaism and rejected
secular, nationalistic ideas of the New Yishuv Zionists.

The Sephardic Jews living in Moslem and Arab countries at the turn of the 20th
Century maintained their own rich Jewish traditions and heritage, which often differed
from those of the Ashkenazim. There was relative peace within the Jewish community
and among the leadership in these Arab and Moslem countries, and although life was
sometimes difficult, these Sephardic Jews did not experience, by and large, pogroms
or the influences of the Enlightenment or Reform Judaism.

In Europe, Jews were the leaders of the Labor and Socialist movements and
spearheaded the establishment of labor unions in America. The challenge of
assimilation in the United States was the greatest difficulty confronting Jewish
immigrants. Attempts were made to stem the tide. Reform Judaism became a symbol
of acceptance into modern American society and Dr. Solomon Schechter initiated the
Universal Synagogue movement which became Conservative Judaism. Also
Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jewish immigrants had to find their respective places within
the Jewish community and in their new host country, the United States, as well..
A small, strong group of American Jewish immigrants managed to cling to their Jewish
traditions and adapt themselves to the new reality in America. Meanwhile, for Jews
around the world, with the threat of WWI looming, the imperial race for supremacy was
escalating

The Story of the Jews with Simon Schama

STAND WITH ISRAEL

SRAEL is the historic homeland of the Jewish people. God gave that land to the descendants of Abraham and Sarah, who are the Jews. The Bible says he’ll never break that covenant: Judges 2:1 “I brought you unto the land which I swore unto your fathers; and I said, I will Never break my covenant with you”. God set forth what he had done for Israel, and what he had promised.

New Anti-Semitism (Hebrew Subtitles) – האנטישמיות החדשה

10.04.2013
An investigative documentary called The New Anti-Semitism was aired on Sunday night, the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day 2013, on Channel 2 …

WATCH THIS VIDEO WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

SYNOPSIS
=========
The Keshet documentary is a Canadian-Israeli co-production presented by Israeli anchorman Ya’akov Eilon. The binational cooperation enabled Canadian journalists to interview people that Israelis would not have had access to, such as Alex Linder, the owner and operator of the viciously anti-Semitic, white supremacist Vanguard News Network.

The filmmakers document what they describe as “new Anti-Semitism” through the use of hidden cameras in conferences, demonstrations and behind the scenes of anti-Zionist meetings across the globe.

Filmmaker and director Martin Himel told The Jerusalem Post that the primary objective of the documentary is to present “Anti-Semitism in action,” to allow viewers to feel what it means and to acknowledge that is exists.

“My goal was not so much to explain it [Anti-Semitism] or to describe how people suffer. For me it was more important to say, ‘Here is the new Anti-Semitism, take a look and see it for what it is,'” he clarified.

The Vilna Gaon and the Making of Modern Judaism

Jeremy Dauber, Columbia University (Moderator)

The beginnings of contemporary Jewry are often associated with Jewish figures in Western Europe such as Moses Mendelssohn. But in his book, ‘The Genius: Elijah of Vilna and the Making of Modern Judaism,’ Eliyahu Stern offers a new and provocative narrative for understanding contemporary Jewish life, which begins in the East, with the leading East European mystic and rabbinic scholar of the 18th century, Elijah ben Solomon, or the “Vilna Gaon.” Eliyahu Stern joined in conversation with Jeremy Dauber for a discussion about the Vilna Gaon, his influence on modern Judaism, and why his legacy has been claimed by traditionalists, enlighteners, Zionists and the Orthodox.

· Winner of the 2012 Samuel and Ronnie Heyman Prize for Outstanding Scholarly Publication
· Finalist for the 2013 Sami Rohr Prize in Jewish Literature

Eliyahu Stern was the Tell fellow at the YIVO Institute in 2004.

The Jews in Poland-Lithuania and Russia: 1350 to the Present Day

Book Talk

Antony Polonsky, Brandeis University

For centuries, Poland and Russia formed the heartland of the Jewish world. Until World War II, this area was home to over forty percent of world Jewry: nearly three and a half million Jews lived in Poland, and nearly three million more lived in the Soviet Union. Although the majority of American and European Jews originate from Eastern Europe, the history of this life and civilization is not well known, or has been reduced to a story of persecution and martyrdom. In his masterful three-volume history, ‘The Jews in Poland and Russia: 1350 to the Present Day’, Polonsky avoids sentimentalism and mythologizing, and provides a comprehensive and detailed account of this great civilization. From the towns and shtetls where Jews lived, to the emergence of Hasidism and the Haskalah movement, to the rise of Jewish urbanization, and Polish-Jewish relations during World War II, Polonsky’s book dispels myths about this culture, while demonstrating the importance of Poland and Russia as a great center of Jewish life.

Winner of the 2011 Kulczycki Book Prize for Polish Studies, and the Pro Historia Polonorum Prize for the best book on the history of Poland published in a foreign language between 2007 and 2011.

New Antisemitism English Subs האנטישמיות החדשה כיתוביות באנגלית

16.04.2013
An investigative documentary called The New Anti-Semitism was aired on Sunday night, the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day 2013, on Channel 2 …

SYNOPSIS
=========
The Keshet documentary is a Canadian-Israeli co-production presented by Israeli anchorman Ya’akov Eilon. The binational cooperation enabled Canadian journalists to interview people that Israelis would not have had access to, such as Alex Linder, the owner and operator of the viciously anti-Semitic, white supremacist Vanguard News Network.

The filmmakers document what they describe as “new Anti-Semitism” through the use of hidden cameras in conferences, demonstrations and behind the scenes of anti-Zionist meetings across the globe.

Filmmaker and director Martin Himel told The Jerusalem Post that the primary objective of the documentary is to present “Anti-Semitism in action,” to allow viewers to feel what it means and to acknowledge that is exists.

“My goal was not so much to explain it [Anti-Semitism] or to describe how people suffer. For me it was more important to say, ‘Here is the new Anti-Semitism, take a look and see it for what it is,'” he clarified.

The director pointed to comparisons of Jews with Nazis and the use of terms such as “genocide,” “extinction” and extermination” when discussing Israel as examples of contemporary Anti-Semitism. He also cited claims that Jews control Hollywood, the banks and the media as examples.

He was keen, however, to point out the difference between being critical of Israel and being anti-Semitic, saying that the former conversely includes language such as “occupation,” “annexation of territories” and “settlements.” Himel also flagged lobbies such as Occupy AIPAC, which he charged with disguising Anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism.
