The Sod of Avraham's Location

I brought an idea in The Sprouting of Moshiach that the lives of Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov are replaying, on a certain level, with modern history, starting with the founding of the State of Israel in 5708.

One idea that came out was that Avraham Avinu made it to Eretz Yisrael in 2023, which would parallel to 5783.

Per the GR"A on the Seder Olam (which I typed up here), Avraham Avinu left Ur Kasdim at age 70, dwelling in Charan for 5 years, then arriving in Eretz Yisrael at age 75.

This would parallel as follows:

  • 5708 - 5778 - Avraham is in Ur Kasdim
  • 5778 - 5783 - Avraham is in Charan
  • 5783 and onwards - Avraham is in Eretz Yisrael

As I have mentioned before, 5783 will begin the period of Ateret HaYesod. Due to reasons which I will not explain here, there seems to be actually an overlap period between Yesod and Ateret HaYesod, which lasts from the end of 5777 (fairly close to 5778) to 5783.

That is to say:

  • Up to 5778 is the Midah of Yesod
  • 5778 - 5783 - Yesod and Ateret HaYesod
  • 5783 and onwards - Only Ateret HaYesod

Avraham's arrival to Eretz Yisrael represents the spiritual elevation that will take place with Yemot HaMoshiach.


  1. 67 precedes 66.5

  2. That is of course what I mean, and what I emailed you.

  3. I did not see the mail yet.

  4. Well you now know the whole drash so the email is a bit superfluous. I had a revelation while waiting for the bus home last night, I wrote the email on my phone in order to record the idea.

    It is rather amazing that the idea of the Sprouting of Moshiach resolves a problem that I had starting with the Yovel year moving up the year 66. Baruch Hashem. Makdim terufah lamakah.

  5. Is it permitted to explain the math problem on a low level? 66, 67, 66.5?

  6. A remez is ok, in the hope that the right people come to study. But without the context, things are not easy to explain.

  7. There are a couple of points, tell me if each are ok:

    The meaning of the מאה in general terms, the division, the statement of 66, 66.5, and 67 as individual years and the relation to the midot.

  8. נקודות:

    פירוש בכללות של המאה בשתיתאה

    התחלקות המאה לפי הספירה

    ששינוי זה קורה בשתין ושית ופלג עידן

    משמעות פלג עידן

    שנות ס"ו, ס"ז, ס"ו ופלג עידן

    Tell me if you think that any of these are problematic to state.

  9. All this is not forbidden to state.

  10. Alright, I'll put it up after Shabbos. I already wrote it, but I put up the latest post since I was not sure.

  11. All this is not forbidden to state. I have done so on occasion, in writing and in shiurim. It must be done with wisdom, keeping out of the spotlight, in order to grow and help others grow.

  12. Post here if you have comments of if you recommend modifications.
