Fascinating Insights—The Sefer (in English)
There are 365 days in a year.
The word נחש, snake has a Gematria of 358. Subtracting 358 from 365, we come
to a total of 7 as it is during the 7 days of Pesach that we get the ability to
fight the זוהמא, filth of the snake. This is the meaning
in ביעור חמץ which refers to the Yetzer Hara.
There is a Machlokes if the
sin of Adam was with wheat or wine.
For this reason, we have Matza (wheat) and wine (four cups) as it is to rectify
the first sin of man. Through this we may merit משיח. In fact, משיח has the equivalent of 358!
We are taught that משיח (בן דוד) will come in a generation that is כולו זכאי or כולו חייב, entirely virtuous or entirely guilty.
How are we to understand that משיח can come in a generation
that is כולו חייב? R’ Elchonon Wasserman compares this to Mitzraim where we were
at the point of no return and thus needed to be redeemed. Similarly, in the
future if it is a generation that is כולו חייב.
The Chofetz Chaim
says the young will rebel against the old and one will be unable to transmit
the fundamentals to the next generation. To prevent the tradition from being
lost, the Geula will come.
Rabbi Alt merited to learn under the tutelage of R’ Mordechai Friedlander
Ztz”l for close to five years. He received Semicha from R’ Zalman Nechemia
Goldberg. Rabbi Alt has written on numerous topics for various websites and
publications. He lives with his wife and family in a suburb of Yerushalayim
where he studies, writes and teaches. The author is passionate about teaching
Jews of all levels of observance.
Sanhedrin 98a. The Abarbenel
(ישועות משיחו, p. 19) explains this to
mean that even in a דור שכולו חייב (see
Ohr Hachaim, Vayikra, 25:28).
