The Significance of 5719

Imrei Binah gives importance to the year 5719 for 2 reasons:

  1. It is the 47th Yovel year / beginning of the 48th Yovel Cycle (3416 + 47 * 49)
  2. It is the end of the 301st Machzor Gadol of the Moon (301 * 19 = 5719)
The truth is that the same is true about 5727, but for slightly different reasons.


  1. Fascinating, two delays of eight years: until the latest Pesach and the Yovel years in Bayit Sheni.

    If this was written by the first Raavad, it is very impressive that he stated the Geula timing in these terms and so far in the future.

  2. The list of parallels between this and what we have learned is rather impressive, even if the entire thing was written 130 years ago. To be so close based on svara.

  3. Is there a problem if I offer what I think is the explanation of the 19 year cycle / latest Pesach?

  4. It is related to me. You can translate it.
