    Mount Ephraim - International Prayer Congregation

    O Dear Lost Sheep from the House of Israel let we try to make a Holy Agreement? No matter what your religion (or none religion) is, with Love and respect for each other. But let the 'base' be the Divine Commands given to Moshe Rabbeinu nothing lessor or nothing more......

    The https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/  is a Home for all the Lost Sheep from Israel who turn back to Adonai their Elohim with all their heart and with all their being. But also you can represent yourself, your group or nation in unique a way. You can open a Profile and put blog-posts. Create a group with blog-posts and forums. People can subscribe to notifications updates from groups. The https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ is dependent on donations. To hold it free for maintenance and further development for everyone from the Lost Tribes of Israel….. 

    The goal is that we Jews and Ephraim may come to the ultimate ‘agreement’, a Holy, set apart by Adonai’s commandments agreement. As is foretold by the prophet YeshaYahu:

    When it shall happen: the disclosure of His Messiah - His Name,

    Isa 11:9-16  They do no evil nor destroy in all My set-apart mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Yah, as the waters cover the sea.

    10  And it shall come to pass on that day, that the root of Jesse, that stands for an ensign of the peoples, unto him shall the nations seek; and his resting-place shall be glorious.

    11  And it shall come to pass in that day, that Yah will set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people, that shall remain from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    12  And He will set up an ensign for the nations, and will assemble the dispersed of Israel, and gather together the scattered of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

    13 And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehuḏah, and Yehuḏah not trouble Ephrayim.

    (Rashi: Ephraim shall not envy Judah: The Messiah, the son of David, and the Messiah, the son of Joseph, shall not envy each other. See: Yeshayahu - Chapter 11:13)

    Please read good? Our terms before you register? https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/terms

    14  And they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines (The head of Amalek today PA, PLO, Hamas etc.) on the west; together shall they spoil the children of the east; they shall put forth their hand upon Edom (Western world today, Edom and Yishmael in unity) and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

    15  And Yah will utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea (Today: Edom and Yishmael in unity with Amalek their leader); and with His scorching wind will He shake His hand over the River, and will smite it into seven streams, and cause men to march over dry-shod.

    16  And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people (the dispersed from Israel and Yehudah), that shall remain from Assyria, like as there was for Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

    My part of the Holy Agreement is that I mention daily your profile names in my personal Prayers and when I am on the Har HaBait near where once was and soon shall be again the Kodesh Kodeshim. From where HaShem shall speak again from between the Cherubim above the Atonement lid of the Ark of the Covenant all the words that the Benay Yisrael need to know: The revelation of Messiah Ben David......

    It is unfair and shameful how Facebook treated me. I strongly believe it is not safe for every Lost Triber to be on Facebook. It has nothing to do that I am losing my hope. But I start to realize we, the Benay Israel, must build in unification their own companies by raising their own affairs. And no more to be dependent on (other) powers like Facebook etc. Because in the end they ‘work’ you out. Please stop believing in them.


    The messenger here on https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ is not so good to work with for my live videos from the Har HaBait. It is very good to chat with each other in personal contacts.

    Thanks to my first donations I could make a good start. To go further I am dependent on Donations. Please let we together help the Mount of Ephraim grow into the Independent United States of Israel.

    So that may come in fulfillment,
    Jer_31:6  “For there shall be a day when the watchmen cry on Mount Ephrayim (united states of Israel), ‘Arise, and let us go up to Tsiyon, to Adonai our Elohim.’ ”

    Praying and hoping together according,

    Zec 4:1-5 And the messenger who was speaking to me came back and woke me up as a man was awakened from sleep (Your dispersion to the end of the earth).

    2 And he said to me, “What do you see?” So I said, “I have looked, and seen: a lamp stands all of gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven spouts to the seven lamps.

    3 “And two olive trees (Yehudah and Ephraim) are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.”

    4 Then I responded and spoke to the messenger who was speaking to me, saying, “What are these, my master?”

    5 And the messenger who was speaking to me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my master.”

    11 Then I responded and said to him, “What are these two olive trees, one at the right of the lampstand and the other at its left?”

    12 And I responded a second time and said to him, “What are these two olive branches which empty golden oil from themselves by means of the two gold pipes?”

    13 And he answered me and said, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my master.”

    14 And he said, “These are the two anointed ones (Yehuadah and Ephraim), who stand beside the Master of all the earth.

    Yehudah and Ephraim standing near the Kodesh Kodeshim........ Two separate nations: Yehudah (Their National soul Messiah Ben David) and Ephraim (Their National Soul Messiah Ben Yoseph) coming to unity by 'oil from themselves' (independent from each other): The 'sparks' of Messiah there (in unity) 'National Soul'....... Messiah Ben David, HaShem speaking from between the Cherubim above the Atonement Lid of the Ark of the Covenant.

    Please don’t accept another messiah but accept only Messiah Ben Yoseph/David.

    By coming into the Holy Agreement:
    And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehuḏah, and Yehuḏah not trouble Ephrayim.

    (Rashi: Ephraim shall not envy Judah: The Messiah, the son of David, and the Messiah, the son of Joseph, shall not envy each other. See: Yeshayahu - Chapter 11:13)’

    The Jews (Yehudah) shall bring forth Messiah Ben David…..We, Yehudah and Ephraim, hearing again HaShem's Voice from between the Cherubim….. By the anointing of the King of the Jews: Messiah Ben David, the ‘ultimate’ expression of the national soul of Yehudah and Ephraim..
    The unification of Yehudah and Ephraim - The unification of Messiah Ben David/Yoseph.
    Messiah Ben David/Yoseph is the One who: Isa 63:9  In all their distress He was distressed, and the Messenger of His Presence saved them. In His love and in His compassion He redeemed them, and He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old. What is he base of the HaBerith HaChadasha:

    Jer 31:1-37  “At that time,” declares Adonai, “I shall be the Elohim of all the clans of Yisra’ěl, and they shall be My people.” 

    2  Thus said Adonai, “A people who escaped from the sword found favour in the wilderness, Yisra’ěl, when it went to find rest.” 

    3  Adonai appeared to me from afar, saying, “I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore I shall draw you with loving-commitment. 

    4  “I am going to build you again. And you shall be rebuilt, O maiden of Yisra’ěl! Again you shall take up your tambourines, and go forth in the dances of those who rejoice. 

    5  “Again you shall plant vines on the mountains of Shomeron. The planters shall plant and treat them as common. 

    6  “For there shall be a day when the watchmen cry on Mount Ephrayim (The United States of Israel), ‘Arise, and let us go up to Tsiyon, to Adonai our Elohim.’ ” 

    7  For thus said Adonai, “Sing with gladness for Ya‛aqoḇ, and shout among the chief of the nations. Cry out, give praise, and say, ‘O Adonai, save Your people, the remnant of Yisra’ěl!’ 

    8  “See, I am bringing them from the land of the north, and shall gather them from the ends of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, those with child and those in labour, together – a great assembly returning here. 

    9  “With weeping they shall come, and with their prayers I bring them. I shall make them walk by rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they do not stumble. For I shall be a Father to Yisra’ěl, and Ephrayim – he is My first-born. 

    10  “Hear the word of Adonai, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Yisra’ěl gathers him, and shall guard him as a shepherd his flock.’ 

    11  “For Adonai shall ransom Ya‛aqoḇ, and redeem him from the hand of one stronger than he. 

    12  “And they shall come in and shall sing on the height of Tsiyon, and stream to the goodness of Adonai, for grain and for new wine and for oil, and for the young of the flock and the herd. And their being shall be like a well-watered garden, and never languish again. 

    13  “Then shall a maiden rejoice in a dance, and young men and old, together. And I shall turn their mourning to joy, and shall comfort them, and shall make them rejoice from their sorrow, 

    14  and shall fill the being of the priests with fatness. And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness,” declares Adonai. 

    15  Thus said Adonai, “A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing, bitter weeping, Raḥěl weeping for her children, refusing to be comforted for her children, because they are no more.” 

    16  Thus said Adonai, “Hold back your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears, for there is a reward for your work,” declares Adonai, “and they shall return from the land of the enemy. 

    17  “And there is expectancy for your latter end,” declares Adonai, “and your children shall return to their own country. 

    18  “I have clearly heard Ephrayim lamenting, ‘You have chastised me, and I was chastised, like an untrained calf. Turn me back, and I shall turn back, for You are Adonai my Elohim. 

    19  For after my turning back, I repented. And after I was instructed, I struck myself on the thigh. I was ashamed, even humiliated, for I bore the reproach of my youth.’ 

    20  “Is Ephrayim a precious son to Me, a child of delights? For though I spoke against him, I still remembered him. That is why My affections were deeply moved for him. I have great compassion for him,” declares Adonai. 

    21  “Set up signposts, make landmarks; set your heart toward the highway, the way in which you went. Turn back, O maiden of Yisra’ěl, turn back to these cities of yours! 

    22  “Till when would you turn here and there, O backsliding daughter? For Adonai has created what is new on earth: a woman encompasses a man!” 

    23  Thus said Adonai of hosts, the Elohim of Yisra’ěl, “Let them once again say this word in the land of Yehuḏah and in its cities, when I turn back their captivity, ‘Adonai bless you, O home of righteousness, mountain of set-apartness!’ 

    24  “And in Yehuḏah and all its cities farmers and those who journey with flocks, shall dwell together. 

    25  “For I shall fill the weary being, and I shall replenish every grieved being.” 

    26  At this I awoke and looked around, and my sleep was sweet to me. 

    27  “See, the days are coming,” declares Adonai, “that I shall sow the house of Yisra’ěl and the house of Yehuḏah with the seed of man and the seed of beast. 

    28  “And it shall be, that as I have watched over them to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict, so I shall watch over them to build and to plant,” declares Adonai. 

    29  “In those days they shall no longer say, ‘The fathers ate sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are blunted.’ 

    30  “But each one shall die for his own crookedness – whoever eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be blunted. 

    31  “See, the days are coming,” declares Adonai, “when I shall make a renewed covenant with the house of Yisra’ěl (Ephraim, the Lost Sheep from the House of Israel) and with the house of Yehuḏah (The Jews). 

    32  Not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day when I strengthened their hand to bring them out of the land of Mitsrayim, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,” declares Adonai.

    33  “For this is the covenant I shall make with the house of Yisra’ěl after those days, declares Adonai: I shall put My Torah in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. 

    34  “And no longer shall they teach, each one his neighbour, and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know Adonai,’ for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares Adonai. “For I shall forgive their crookedness, and remember their sin no more.” 

    35  Thus said Adonai, who gives the sun for a light by day, and the laws of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who stirs up the sea, and its waves roar – Adonai of hosts is His Name: 

    36  “If these laws vanish from before Me,” declares Adonai, “then the seed of Yisra’ěl shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.” 

    37  Thus said Adonai, “If the heavens above could be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I would also cast off all the seed of Yisra’ěl for all that they have done,” declares Adonai.

    It doesn’t matter your ‘religious’ or ‘non-religious’ ‘background. Be what you are Christian, Muslim, Hindu or whatever but don’t change by taking off or adding to the Divine Laws ‘revealed’ to Moshe Rabbeinu the first five books of the Bible…… Let us do again all His Sabbath and Yom Tovim? But find a way to ‘use’ the laws of ‘your religion’ as a ‘halacha’ around the Divine Laws revealed to Moshe Rabbeinu. As is the ‘function’ of Jewish Halacha. Express Love in respect to every religion. By annihilating all the laws Avoda Zarah, robbery, murder, raping, murder the rape victim, homophily, pedofily etc. brought forth by following our Yetser Hara (evil inclination) and bringing fort her ‘head’ the ‘anointed’ king: Amalek, the ultimate expression of our evil inclination. But instead cultivating the sparks of Messiah our Yetser Tov (good inclination) into our National Soul. And accepting the areas West of the Jordan River as Jewish (Yehuda’s) Inheritance under Jewish (Yehuda’s) Sovereignty with only Jewish Halacha. Including the Har HaBait with a New Temple and her service under Jewish Halacha. Come and help the Jews to build and reinstitute: The Temple Service until Gen 49:10  “The sceptre shall not turn aside from Yehuḏah, nor an Inscriber from between his feet, until Shiloh (Messiah Ben David) comes, and to Him is the obedience of peoples……..

And he sent Yudah before him..... Midrash Tanchuma, Vayigash siman 10 - 11

A very beautiful teaching about the Restoration of Am Yisrael



Midrash Tanchuma Vayigash the end of siman 9 and siman 10,

 

וַיַּרְא שָׁם יְהוּדָה וְגוֹ', וְיָלְדָה עֵר וְאוֹנָן, וַיָּמָת עֵר וְאוֹנָן. וְכָל אוֹתָן הַשָּׁנִים שֶׁהָיָה יוֹסֵף חוּץ לְאָבִיו, הָיָה בְּלִבּוֹ שֶׁל יַעֲקֹב שֶׁיְּהוּדָה הֲרָגוֹ. מִנַּיִן אַתָּה לָמֵד, מִבִּנְיָמִין, שֶׁכָּךְ אָמַר יְהוּדָה לְיוֹסֵף, כִּי עַבְדְּךָ עָרַב אֶת הַנַּעַר. כֵּיוָן שֶׁנָּתַן נַפְשׁוֹ עַל בִּנְיָמִין וְנִתְוַדַּע יוֹסֵף, נִמְצָא יְהוּדָה נָקִי מִכָּל אוֹתָן הַדְּבָרִים. הֱוֵי, וְסָרָה קִנְאַת אֶפְרַיִם. לְכָךְ כְּתִיב: וְאֶת יְהוּדָה שָׁלַח לְפָנָיו.

And Yudah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite (Gen 38:2 And Yehuḏah saw there a daughter of a certain Kena‛anite whose name was Shuwa. And he took her and went into her.) She bore him two sons, Er and Onan, and both of them died. During the years in which Yoseph was separated from his father, Yacob was convinced that Yudah had killed him. From whence do we learn this. From the episode dealing with Benjamin: (Gen 44:32  “For your servant went guaranty for the boy to my father, saying, ‘If I do not bring him back to you, then I shall be a sinner before my father forever.’). It was only after he announced that he had pledged himself for Benjamin that Yoseph disclosed his identity and Yudah was exonerated from guilt in this matter. Therefore, (Isa 11:13 And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehuḏah, and Yehuḏah not trouble Ephrayim.) Hence, Scripture states: Gen 46:28 And he sent Yehuḏah before him to Yosěph, to point out before him the way to Goshen. And they came to the land of Goshen.

And he sent Yudah before him (Gen 46:28 And he sent Yehuḏah before him to Yosěph, to point out before him the way to Goshen. And they came to the land of Goshen.). Scripture states elsewhere: (Mal 3:1 “See, I am sending My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me. Then suddenly the Master you are seeking comes to His Hěḵal, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. See, He is coming,” said Adonai of hosts.). Observe that every misfortune that occurred to Joseph likewise befell Zion. It is written of Yoseph: (Gen 37:3 And Yisra’ěl loved Yosěph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age. And he made him a long robe.) And of Zion it is written: (Psa 87:2 Adonai loves the gates of Tsiyon More than all the dwellings of Ya‛aqoḇ.). Concerning Yoseph it is stated: (Gen 37:8 And his brothers said to him, “Shall you indeed reign over us? Shall you indeed rule over us?” So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.) And about Zion: (Jer 12:8 “My inheritance has become to Me like a lion in the forest. It cries out against Me, therefore I have hated it.) With reference to Yoseph it is said: (Gen 37:7 “See, we were binding sheaves in the midst of the field, and see, my sheaf rose up and also stood up. And see, your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf.”) And in regard to Zion: (Psa 126:6 He who goes on and weeps, bearing seed for sowing, shall indeed come in with rejoicing, Bearing his sheaves.) It is written of Yoseph: (Gen 37:8 And his brothers said to him, “Shall you indeed reign over us? Shall you indeed rule over us?” So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.), and of Zion: (Isa 52:7 How pleasant upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings good news, who proclaims deliverance, who says to Tsiyon, “Your Elohim reigns!”). And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:5 And Yosěph dreamed a dream and told it to his brothers. So, they hated him even more.) And of Zion: (Psa 126:1 When Adonai turns back the captivity of Tsiyon, we shall be like dreamers.) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:10 And he related it to his father and his brothers. And his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall we, your mother and I and your brothers, indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?”) And of Zion: (Isa 49:23 “And sovereigns shall be your foster fathers, and their sovereigns your nursing mothers. They bow down to you with their faces to the earth and lick up the dust of your feet. And you shall know that I am Adonai – those who wait for Me shall not be ashamed.”) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:11 And his brothers envied him, but his father guarded the word.) And of Zion: (Zec 8:2 “Thus said Adonai of hosts, ‘I shall be jealous for Tsiyon with great jealousy, with great wrath I shall be jealous for her.’). And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:14 And he said to him, “Please go and see if it is well with your brothers and well with the sheep and bring back word to me.” So, he sent him out of the Valley of Ḥeḇron, and he went to Sheḵem.) And of Zion: (Jer 29:7 And seek the peace of the city where I have exiled you, and pray to Adonai for it, for in its peace you have peace.’) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:18 And they saw him from a distance, and before he came near them, they plotted against him, to kill him.) And of Zion: (Jer 51:50 You who have escaped the sword, go away! Do not stand still! Remember Adonai from afar and let Yerushalayim come to your heart.) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:18 And they saw him from a distance, and before he came near them, they plotted against him, to kill him.) And of Zion: (Psa 83:4 They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, and let the name of Yisra’ěl be remembered no more.”) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:23 So it came to be, when Yosěph had come to his brothers, that they stripped Yosěph of his robe, the long robe which was on him.) And of Zion: (Eze 23:26 And they shall strip you of your garments and shall take your pretty jewels.) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:23 So it came to be, when Yosěph had come to his brothers, that they stripped Yosěph of his robe, the long robe which was on him.) And of Zion: (Lam 3:53 They have cut off my life in the pit, and they threw stones at me.) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:24 And they took him and threw him into a pit. And the pit was empty, there was no water in it.) And of Zion: (Jer 38:6 And they took Yirmeyahu and threw him into the dungeon of Malkiyahu the sovereign’s son, which was in the court of the guard, and they let Yirmeyahu down with ropes. And in the dungeon, there was no water, but mud. So Yirmeyahu sank in the mud.) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:25 And they sat down to eat a meal. And they lifted their eyes and looked and saw a company of Yishma‛ělites, coming from Gil‛aḏ with their camels, bearing spices, and balm, and myrrh, going to take them down to Mitsrayim.) And of Zion: (Lam 5:6 To Mitsrayim we have given a hand; To Ashshur, to be satisfied with bread.) And to Yoseph: (Gen 37:28 And men, Miḏyanite traders passed by, so they pulled Yosěph up and lifted him out of the pit and sold him to the Yishma‛ělites for twenty pieces of silver. And they took Yosěph to Mitsrayim. ) And of Zion: (Jer 38:13 and they pulled Yirmeyahu up with ropes and lifted him out of the dungeon. And Yirmeyahu remained in the court of the guard.) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:34 And Ya‛aqoḇ tore his garments, and put sackcloth on his waist, and mourned for his son many days.) And of Zion: (Isa 22:12 And in that day the Master Adonai of hosts called for weeping and for mourning, for baldness and for girding with sackcloth.) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:35 And all his sons and all his daughters arose to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted, and he said, “Now let me go down into She’ol to my son in mourning.” So, his father wept for him.) And of Zion: (Isa 22:4 Therefore I said, “Look away from me, let me weep bitterly. Do not try to comfort me because of the ravaging of the daughter of my people.”) And of Yoseph: (Gen 37:36 And the Miḏanites had sold him in Mitsrayim to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh and captain of the guard.) And of Zion: (Joe 3:6 and the people of Yehuḏah and the people of Yerushalayim you have sold to the sons of Yawan, to remove them far from their borders.)

Everything fortunate that occurred to Yoseph likewise happened to Zion. It is written of Yoseph: (Gen 39:6 And he left in Yosěph’s hand all that he had, and he did not know what he had except for the bread which he ate. And Yosěph was handsome in form and handsome in appearance. ), and of Zion it is stated: (Psa 48:2 Beautiful on high, The joy of all the earth, Is Mount Tsiyon on the sides of the north, The city of the great Sovereign. ). Concerning Yoseph it is written: (Gen 39:9 “No one is greater in this house than I, and he has not withheld whatever from me but you, because you are his wife. And how shall I do this great evil and sin against Elohim?”) and of Zion: Hag 2:9 Let the esteem of this latter House be greater than the former,’ said Adonai of hosts. ‘And in this place, I give peace,’ declares Adonai of hosts.”). And of Yoseph: (Gen 39:2 And it came to be that Adonai was with Yosěph, and he became a prosperous man, and was in the house of his master the Mitsrian.) And of Zion: (2Ch 7:15 “Now, My eyes are open and My ears attentive to the prayer of this place.). And of Yoseph: (Gen 39:21 But Adonai was with Yosěph and extended loving-commitment to him, and He gave him favour in the eyes of the prison warden.) And of Zion: (Jer 2:2 “Go, and you shall cry in the hearing of Yerushalayim, saying, ‘Thus said Adanai, “I remember you, the loving-commitment of your youth, the love of your bridehood, when you went after Me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown.) And of Yoseph: (Gen 41:14 Then Pharaoh sent and called Yosěph, and they hurriedly brought him out of the dungeon. And he shaved and changed his garments, and came to Pharaoh.) And of Zion: (Isa 44:4  and they shall spring up among the grass like willows by streams of water.’). And of Yoseph: (Gen 41:40 “Be over my house, you yourself, and at your mouth all my people shall kiss – only in the throne I am greater than you.” ) And of Zion: (Jer 3:17 “At that time Yerushalayim shall be called the throne of Adonai, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the Name of Adonai, to Yerushalayim, and no longer walk after the stubbornness of their evil heart.) And of Yoseph: And arrayed him in vestures of fine linen (Gen 41:42 And Pharaoh took his seal-ring off his hand and put it on Yosěph’s hand. And he dressed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck.) And of Zion: (Isa 52:1 Awake, awake! Put on your strength, O Tsiyon, put on your garments of splendour, O Yerushalayim, the set-apart city! For no more do the uncircumcised and the unclean come into you.) And of Yoseph: (Gen 46:28 And he sent Yehuḏah before him to Yosěph, to point out before him the way to Goshen. And they came to the land of Goshen.) And of Zion: (Mal 3:1 “See, I am sending My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me. Then suddenly the Master you are seeking comes to His Hěḵal, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. See, He is coming,” said Adonai of hosts.)

And he sent Judah before him (Gen 46:28 And he sent Yehuḏah before him to Yosěph, to point out before him the way to Goshen. And they came to the land of Goshen) Yacob sent Yudah before him to establish an academy wherein he might teach the Torah as he had previously done for the tribes. You know that he taught his sons earlier from the fact that Yacob remembered the chapter of the Torah that Yoseph was studying with him at the time of his disappearance. When Yoseph’s brothers returned and told him: “Yoseph is yet alive” … (Gen 45:26 And they told him, saying, “Yosěph is still alive, and he is governor over all the land of Mitsrayim.” And Ya‛aqoḇ’s heart ceased, for he did not believe them.) Yacob recalled the chapter of the Torah that Yoseph was studying at the time of his departure, and he said to himself: “I know that he was studying the portion devoted to the beheaded heifer.” Read:


Deu 21:1-9 “When anyone is found slain, lying in the field in the land which Adonai your Elohim is giving you to possess, and it is not known who struck him, 

2 then your elders and your judges shall go out, and they shall measure the distance from the slain man to the cities round about. 

3 “And it shall be that the elders of the city nearest to the slain man shall take a heifer which has not been worked and which has not pulled with a yoke, 

4 and the elders of that city shall bring the heifer down to a wadi with flowing water, which is neither ploughed nor sown, and they shall break the heifer’s neck there in the wadi. 

5 “And the priests, the sons of Lěwi, shall come near, for Adonai your Elohim has chosen them to serve Him and to bless in the Name of Adonai, and by their mouth every strife and every stroke is tried. 

6 “And let all the elders of that city nearest to the slain man wash their hands over the heifer whose neck was broken in the wadi. 

7 “And they shall answer and say, ‘Our hands have not shed this blood, nor have our eyes seen it. 

8 O Adonai, forgive Your people Yisra’ěl, whom You have ransomed, and do not allow innocent blood in the midst of Your people Yisra’ěl.’ And the blood-guilt shall be pardoned to them. 

9 “Thus you purge the guilt of innocent blood from your midst when you do what is right in the eyes of Adonai.

Whereupon he turned to them and said: “If he gave you something to indicate the chapter he was studying when he departed from here, I will believe you.” Yoseph had also remembered the chapter he was studying when he was separated from his father. What did Yoseph do? He gave them wagons (Gen 45:21 And the sons of Yisra’ěl did so. And Yosěph gave them wagons, according to the mouth of Pharaoh, and he gave them food for the journey.) When Yacob saw the wagons (‘agalot), the spirit of their father revived forthwith. (Gen 45:27  But when they spoke to him all the words which Yosěph had spoken to them, and when he saw the wagons which Yosěph had sent to transport him, the spirit of Ya‛aqoḇ their father revived.) Word-play relating ‘agalot (“wagons”) to kelayot (“kidneys”), stated in the next paragraph to be the organ through which Abraham learned and retained the law. This teaches us that wherever Yoseph went, he devoted himself to the law, as his ancestors had done before him, even though the Torah itself had not yet been given. And thus, it is written: (Gen 26:5 because Aḇraham obeyed My voice and guarded My Charge: My commands, My laws, and My Torot.)

וּמֵהֵיכָן לָמַד אַבְרָהָם אֶת הַתּוֹרָה. רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן בֶּן יוֹחַאי אוֹמֵר, נַעֲשׂוּ שְׁתֵּי כִלְיוֹתָיו כִּשְׁנֵי כַדִּים שֶׁל מַיִם וְהָיוּ נוֹבְעִין תּוֹרָה, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר: אַף לֵילוֹת יִסְּרוּנִי כִלְיוֹתָי (תהלים טז, ז). רַבִּי לֵוִי אָמַר, מֵעַצְמוֹ לָמַד אֶת הַתּוֹרָה, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר: מִדְּרָכָיו יִשְׂבַּע סוּג לֵב וּמֵעָלָיו אִישׁ טוֹב (משלי יד, יד). וְהָיָה מְלַמֵּד לְבָנָיו תּוֹרָה, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר: כִּי יְדַעְתִּיו לְמַעַן אֲשֶׁר יְצַוֶּה (בראשית יח, יט).

From what source did Abraham learn the law? R. Simeon the son of Yohai declared: His two kidneys (kelayot) became like two pitchers filled with water, from which the law flowed forth, as it is said: (Psa 16:7 I bless Adonai who has given me counsel; My kidneys also instruct me in the nights.). R. Levi maintained: He studied the law by himself, as it is said: (Pro 14:14  The backslider in heart is satisfied with his own ways, But a good man is satisfied from his.). He taught the law to his sons, as it is said: (Gen 18:19  “For I have known him, so that he commands his children and his household after him, to guard the way of Adonai, to do righteousness and right-ruling, so that Adonai brings to Aḇraham what He has spoken to him.”)

אָמַר לוֹ הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא, אַתָּה לִמַּדְתָּ בָּנֶיךָ תּוֹרָה בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה, אֲבָל לָעוֹלָם הַבָּא אֲנִי מְלַמְּדָם תּוֹרָה, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר: וְכָל בָּנַיִךְ לִמּוּדֵי ה' וְרַב שְׁלוֹם בָּנָיִךְ (ישעיה נד, יג).

The Holy One, blessed be He, said to Him: You have taught your sons the law in this world, but in the world-to-come I shall teach them the law, as Scripture states: (Isa 54:13 And all thy children shall be taught of Adonai; and great shall be the peace of thy children.)
