Geula Year, Twice Pesach

Holminer RebbeThere's a secret in Jewish mysticism about the Geula year, that in the year Moshiach arrives, theremight be Pesach twice, 7 days each time. I asked the esteemed and holy Holminer Rebbe shlit'a (image, right) how this could be, and this is what he explained to me last night:

When referring  to the Geula, the full and final redemption of the Jewish People, Isaiah the Prophet says in the Name of Hashem, "B'ito, In its time, achishena, I shall hasten it" (Isaiah 60:22). Rashi explains that if the Jews so merit, the Geula will be hastened; if they don't merit, it will come anyway in its appointed time.

The Redemption from bondage in Egypt took place in the month of Nissan. Our sages tell us that the future redemption will also take place in Nissan (Tractate Rosh Hashana, 11a).

The Holminer Rebbe told me that Rebbe Yonatan Eibshitz wrote in his classic book "Ya'arot Dvash" that when Hashem decides to expedite the coming of Moshiach, the constellations will move at an accelarated pace. The Rebbe then explained that with this in mind, if we happen to be in any other month when the Geula should take place, Hashem will speed the Zodiac and the monthly cycles so that it becomes Nissan again. That way, we'll have Pesach twice in the same chronological year.

The above does sound weird on surface value, but it is the tip of the iceberg of deep secrets according to the Zohar and Kabbala, connected to the Mazal (star maps) of Yitzchak and Rivka.

As I always say, when the brain kicks out, emuna kicks in. We look forward to Moshiach and innocently await his arrival. Have a wonderful Shabbat Chol Hamoed!

Thank you for the fascinating words of Torah. This Nissan is very significant astrologically, with a new moon at a powerful spot in Shor, the eclipse on Seder night, a grand square on Shmini shel Pesach and a solar eclipse on the last day of nissan! (And as we know, kalu kol hakitzin, all the 'endtime' deadlines have passed, and there is nothing more obstructing the Holy one from bringing geulah bafoel mamash right now!)
