Chag Sameach! Hakhel! United Rabbis: Stop Iran Rally by UN. JBS Today at 3pm. Videos of Rabbi's against Iran!


Sukkot is a time we stand with the 4 species  United all Together:  One who is learned, one who has good deeds, one who is either learned or with good deeds and one who is neither learned nor with good deeds.   We can not fulfill the Mitzvah of 4 Species, the Arba Minim,  unless each and every one of these species are present!

Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, as it is known to non Jews, is also celebrated by Non Jews.  Every year, in our times as well,  many non Jewish groups make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.   Sukkot is a time for the 70 Nations to bring gifts to Jerusalem a time of intense joyous celebration for all!  

It is not only a Mitzva for Jews to be Oleh Regel, to make a special trip to Jerusalem on Sukkot but for non Jews as well.  

This is a Hakhel Year!

This Rally at the UN is hopefully the first of many Hakhel opportunities for both Jews and Righteous Noahides.  Please check out this link about Hakhel!  

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term Hakhel (Hebrew הקהל) refers to a biblical commandment of assembling all Jewish men, women and children, as well as "strangers" to assemble and hear the reading of the Torah by the king of Israel once every seven years. [1]Originally this ceremony took place at the site of the Temple in Jerusalem during Sukkot in the year following a Seventh Year. According to the Mishna, the "commandment to assemble" (Hebrew: מצות הקהל mitzvat hakhel) was performed throughout the years of the Second Temple era and, by inference, during the First Temple era as well. The biblical mitzvah of Hakhel is only in effect when all the Jewish people reside in Israel. In the 20th century, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, repeatedly encouraged all Jews to utilize the Hakhel year to assemble men, women and children and encourage each other to increase in Torah observance and study, and foster an environment of fear of G‑d.[2] ... 
The follow portions were read by the King. at Hakhel.  
The reading consisted of the following sections from the Book of Deuteronomy:
From the beginning of the book through Shema Yisrael (6:4);
The second paragraph of the Shema (11:13-21);
"You shall surely tithe" (14:22-27);
"When you have finish tithing" (26:12-15);
The section about appointing a king (17:14-20);
The blessings and curses (28:1-69).

Devarim 26:15
הַשְׁקִיפָה מִמְּעוֹן קָדְשְׁךָ מִן הַשָּׁמַיִם וּבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמְּךָ אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאֵת הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר נָתַתָּה לָנוּ כַּאֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעְתָּ לַאֲבֹתֵינוּ אֶרֶץ זָבַת חָלָב וּדְבָשׁ:
Look down from Your holy dwelling, from the heavens, and bless Your people Israel, and the ground which You have given to us, as You swore to our forefathers a land flowing with milk and honey.

Dear Friends of Israel and the Jewish People,
Rabbi's Rallies of 9/20 at the United States Mission to the U.N. and 9/9 in Washington, D.C.
If you were unable to attend last week's Sept. 20th rally at the United States Mission to the U.N. organized by Rabbi Avi Weiss and Rabbi Bruce Ginsburg, you can see the YouTube video of the rally produced by the Jewish Broadcasting Service by using the link below or by tuning in to JBS on Sunday at 3 p.m.  (thanks to Cindy Grosz).   
Those who attended witnessed an impressive display of Jewish unity in opposition to the proposed agreement with Iran.   The rally culminated with the delivery of a letter, addressed to President Obama, into the hands of a State Department representative at the U.S. Mission to the U.N.   
On Wednesday, Sept. 9th, hundreds of rabbis and synagogue leaders from all over the United States descended on Capitol Hill to rally against the Iran nuclear agreement and to meet with members of the Senate and House of Representatives.   Below is the link to an article and a video: 

Iran Update
1) The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported on Monday, Sept. 21 that Iran had turned over samples from Parchin military base, a suspected site of nuclear experimentation, and confirmed that the samples were collected by Iranians AFTER extensive renovations were done at the site.  Since the last IAEA inspection in 2005, parts of the complex have been bulldozed "leaving analysts to doubt there is any evidence left to collect" (NYT, 9/22/15). 
2) Secretary of State John Kerry met with Iran's Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, on Saturday to "search for a political solution to the Syrian conflict," this, despite Kerry's acknowledgement in 2014 that "Iran is currently a major actor with respect to adverse consequences in Syria" and despite the knowledge that "Iran has long had a strategic interest in maintaining Assad in power because "the airport in Damascus serves as a channel for shipping Iranian weapons to Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shiite militia."  Iran is directing Hezbollah's fighting in Syria, provided weapons to the Syrian government, and sent its Quds force personnel to Syria (NYT, 9/27/15). 
3) Unbeknownst to us, Russia, a primary member of the team that negotiated the nuclear agreement with Iran, in addition to its contract to sell Iran the sophisticated S-300 anti-missile system, entered into a $20 billion contract with Iran for the purchase of oil in exchange for goods as early as April, 2015 even before the details of the agreement were finalized.    The Kremlin confirmed at that time that Russia had already sent grain, equipment, and construction materials to Iran in the barter deal,  the first step in securing a foothold in a new market since the West imposed sanctions on Russia over Ukraine (Reuters, 4/14/15).  
As we prayed on Yom Kippur, may Hashem nullify all harsh decrees upon us and bless the Family of Israel with peace,
