PETIHAT HAHEKHAL : Zion Tota

PETIHAT HAHEKHAL CHABBAT 15 décembre : Isaac Darwiche

 

Mikets - en bref

Genèse 41, 1 - 44, 17

 

L’emprisonnement de Joseph s’achève finalement lorsque Pharaon fait un songe : il est au bord du fleuve, sept vaches décharnées y dévorent sept vaches belles et grasses. Puis un second : sept épis de blé maigres et brûlés y avalent sept épis sains et pleins. Sur le conseil de l’échanson, Joseph est alors appelé auprès de Pharaon et interprète les deux rêves. Sept années d’abondance, annonce-t-il, seront suivies par sept années de famine. Joseph recommande que pendant les sept premières années le blé soit amassé et entreposé sous la possession du pharaon. Ce dernier le nomme alors gouverneur de toute l’Égypte. Joseph épouse Asnat, la fille de Potiphar, qui lui donne deux fils, Manassé et Ephraïm.

La famine s’étend et on ne peut plus obtenir de nourriture qu’en Égypte. Jacob craignant pour Benjamin, il le garde auprès de lui. Ce sont donc les dix autres frères de Joseph qui descendent en Égypte pour y acheter du grain. Joseph les reconnaît (contrairement à eux) et les accuse d’être des espions : les frères protestent de leur bonne foi en évoquant leur père et leur jeune frère. Joseph leur demande de revenir avec Benjamin pour prouver la véracité de leurs propos. En attendant Chimone est retenu en gage. Sur le chemin du retour, ils découvrent que l’argent payé en échange du blé a été mystérieusement restitué.

Jacob n’accepte le départ de Benjamin qu’après que Judah se soit porté garant de son

retour. Cette fois, Joseph les reçoit avec affabilité, relâche Chimone et les invite à un dîner solennel dans son palais. Malgré son émotion, il continue de leur cacher son identité et fait mettre sa coupe d’argent dans le sac de Benjamin. Quand les frères prennent la route du retour le lendemain ils sont poursuivis, fouillés et arrêtés après la découverte de la coupe. Joseph refuse d’entendre les arguments de Judah : il laisse libre les dix frères et retiendra Benjamin qui sera son serviteur.

 

Do Jews Believe in Heaven or Reincarnation (or Both)?

By Aron Moss

 

 

If we believe in reincarnation, why do we say that souls go to heaven for their final rest after they pass away? What's the point of praying for a soul if they might be right next to us down here on earth?

 

Answer:

When I was at school, a friend failed his end-of-year exams and had to repeat a grade. We all moved on but he was held back.

 

Some think reincarnation is like repeating a year at school: while some souls graduate to the next world, others are sent right back down to rectify things.

 

But that’s not quite how it works.

A better metaphor would be a mobile data rollover plan. The phone company gives you 5GB of data per month. Anything unused at the end of one month rolls over to the following month. So if you only used 4GB in November, the remaining 1GB is applied to your December allowance, giving you 6GB for that month.

Your soul has multiple gigabytes of spiritual energy and Divine potential. This is the power G‑d has invested in you to fulfill your mission in life. You use that potential by doing mitzvahs. Every mitzvah activates another gigabyte of your soul energy. You have been given an allotted number of days in this word to utilize your gigabytes.

At the end of the billing cycle, when your time comes to leave this life, the activated parts of your soul go to a higher place, because that part of you has completed its mission on earth. But if you have unused soul potential, if you didn't activate all of the energy invested in you, then that unused part of your soul comes back again in another body to finish the job.

So when someone passes away, we pray that their soul find rest in heaven, because that's where the already-used part of the soul is found. As for the unused part of the soul, it will come back down for another go-round.

 

 

 

Miketz Quiz

 

 

1)Q. What is the significance of Pharaoh’s dreaming two dreams about the same event?

A. The dream was repeated to emphasize that the seven good years would start immediately. In the Gemara it says that if someone has the same dream twice, it is a sign that the dream may come true.

2)Q. Why did Yosef place Shimon in prison?

A. To separate him from Levi, because together they posed a threat to him as Shimon and Levi together had destroyed an entire city.

3)Q. Why did Yosef suddenly lose control of his emotions and leave the room in verse 43:30?

A. According to the midrash, when he was questioning Binyamin, he asked him if he had any sons, and Binyamin told him the names of his ten sons. Yosef asked him why they had such strange names, and Binyamin responded that he named them all after something that had to do with his lost brother (sorrow, beauty, exile, etc.)

4)Q. In verse 43:34, Rashi states that from the time of the sale of Yosef, neither Yosef nor his brothers had drunk wine. However, at this present meal they all drank wine, even though the brothers didn’t know Yosef’s identity. How does this midrash reconcile them drinking at this time?

A. The Gur Aryeh explains that the brothers were perplexed about Yosef’s intention. They thought, “Yesterday he said we were spies, and today he wants to dine with us!” They thought that Yosef suspected them of being spies and was trying to get them drunk so that they would accidentally reveal their spy-identities. If they wouldn’t drink, this would support his suspicion that they were concealing something. Therefore, they felt that the only way to clear themselves was to drink. When it was clear that they weren’t hiding anything, they would no longer be suspect.

5)Q. Yosef was second to the king and in charge of a major food distribution campaign throughout the world. Yosef certainly did not deal personally with every customer from all over the world. How did he know his brothers came?

  1. One explanation given is that Yosef knew that the famine affected Canaan and that Egypt was the only place around with food. He knew that somehow, eventually, his brothers would have to come to Egypt to get food for the family. As viceroy of Egypt, Yosef made three decrees: 1)That no one export more than one donkey laden with food at any one time. 2) That no one send a servant to buy food for his household; rather, the head of the household must be the one to buy the food. 3) That everyone entering Egypt write his name and his father’s name in a ledger. With decree #1 Yosef ensured that all the brothers had to come down, so that they can take back enough food, with decree #2 he ensured that they will come in person, and with decree #3, every day, these ledgers were brought to Yosef and Yosef checked them looking for his brothers’ names.

As you do, so will you be done by." ~~ Talmud

God knows that the best synagogue is the human heart Hasidic Proverb

A person must never open his mouth to Satan. [Guard your tongue!] " ~~ Talmud, Berakhot

Who walks with wise men becomes wise." ~~ Proverbs

Who gives to the poor shall not lack." ~~ Proverbs

A man is bitter against those that envy him, and is grieved if no one does. " ~~ Mishle YehoshIf

we do not help a man in trouble, it is as if we caused the trouble." ~~ Nachman of Bratslav

You can tell a Jew by how he treats his children." ~~ Talmud, Nedarim

 

"The division of Judaism into “Orthodox,” “Conservative,” “Reform,” etc., is artificial. For all Jews have one and the same Torah, given by the one and same G-d, though there are more observant Jews and less observant Jews. To tag on a label does not, of course, change the reality of Jewish essence." ~~ Rebbe Menachem Schneerson

 

 

 

 

 

·LE SOURIRE DU CHABBAT

 

Deux amis discutent :
- Tu vois, dans la vie, pour être heureux, il faut une bonne santé et un bon travail.
- Et tu es heureux, toi ?
- Oui. J'ai une bonne santé et ma femme a un bon travail.

Eve dit à Adam: Chéri, Est-ce que tu m'aimes et est-ce que tu m'es fidèle ??

Adam qui répond : Est-ce que j'ai le choix ??

 

Un vieux monsieur fréquente le même club du troisième âge qu’une veuve qu’il aime secrètement. Un jour, prenant son courage à deux mains, il la demande en mariage et elle accepte avec enthousiasme.

Le lendemain le vieux monsieur lui téléphone :
– Ce que j’ai à vous dire est un peu embarrassant. Hier je vous ai demandée en mariage, et je ne me souviens pas si vous m’avez répondu oui ou non…
– Oh, comme je suis contente que vous m’appeliez ! Je me souvenais d’avoir dit oui, mais je ne savais plus à qui !!

La nouvelle institutrice a envie d’inculquer des notions de psychologie à ses élèves. Elle s’adresse à la classe en ces termes :
– Que celui qui a l’impression d’être stupide par moments se lève !
Après une bonne dizaine de secondes, Pierre (encore lui !) se lève… de mauvaise grâce.
L’institutrice étonnée lui demande :
– Alors comme ça, Pierre, tu penses que de temps en temps tu peux être stupide ?
– Oh non, madame, mais ça me faisait de la peine de vous voir toute seule debout…
