5769 as the Beginning of an Era

There are many posts on this blog which show a relation between certain aspects of our history and our time, in such a way that certain years keep showing up repeatedly. The closest of these years is next year, 5769.

  • The Birth of Esav, a metaphor for a crack in the Erev Rav, and a beginning of conflict with Esav.
  • The 7 years of Conquest of Eretz Yisrael from Yehoshua begin: Here too there is a metaphor: Yehoshua and Eretz Yisrael both symbolize other ideas.
  • The year 5769 is also related to the idea of Ateret HaYesod, but in a hidden way.

We should learn from this that the world will not be ending imminently, that there is still work to do.

The most concrete activities (more in depth here: here):

  • Aliyah
  • Supporting the establishment of the Sanhedrin
  • Building up Eretz Yisrael in general, Yerushalayim in particular
