Rachel's Children Reclamation Foundation celebrates Rosh Chodesh Tevet in Brooklyn with Rabbi Ephraim Sprecher of Jerusalem Tuesday, December 3, 2013 8:30 pm , Manhattan Beach Jewish Center, 2nd floor, 60 West End Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11235 The famous Rabbi Ephraim Sprecher of Mount Zion ,King David's Tomb, Jerusalem will be speaking in Manhattan Beach Jewish Center, Brooklyn this 7th Evening of Chanukah Tuesday, Rosh Chodesh Tevet at 8:30 PM.. The most insightful topic is "Why Moshiach failed to come after the miracle of Chanukah? " Refreshments. Solomon's Lesson for George Washington, A Revolutionary War Chanukah Story presented by RCRF Anonymous Israel Solomon was cold, but his mind was neither on the freezing winter of Valley Forge nor on tomorrow's battle. He was trying to light his Chanukah Lights without waking anyone or attracting attention. 'This could be my last Chanukah,' he thought to himself as he blew into his hands to warm them up so he could hold the match. But as the fire caught the wick he suddenly felt different; he felt strangely warm and happy. "Thanks for everything, G-d!" He thought to himself, "Thanks for everything!" A few seconds later he was laying under the silent, clear, winter Pennsylvania sky making a blessing on the four small candles flickering in his miniature Menorah. Suddenly he was brought out of his reverie; someone was standing at his feet! "What is this? What are you doing, are you mad!!! Are you a spy!!?" He looked up and lost his breath; It was the Commander of the Revolutionary forces, General Washington himself, whispering angrily at him! He sat bolt upright, not wanting to stand quickly for fear that the noise would wake someone. "No, No, General! G-d forbid!!" he whispered. He slowly rose until he stood facing the General. "I am a religious Jew. I believe in G-d and this is one of G-d's commandments. Believe me I'm not a spy. G-d forbid, General Washington, G-d forbid." The General couldn't sleep; he had been concerned with the impending battle and was walking between the rows of his sleeping soldiers when he noticed the lights. "What sort of commandment is this?" he had calmed down a bit and seemed to be almost interested. "Over two thousand years ago we Jewish people were fighting a war very similar to yours, Sir." Solomon felt himself filling with inspiration; The General was looking deeply into his eyes as though he was yearning for the answer. Solomon stood upright and looked powerfully back into Washington's eyes, "General, the Jews won that war because we fought for the truth. We fought for freedom. We were outnumbered too, even more than you are now, maybe a hundred to one, but we won because we believed in G-d, and G-d helped us." Solomon felt as though he was connected to something infinitely certain. "And you will win tomorrow also, Sir! G-d will help you just as He helped us and we will win!" The General was silent for a moment, staring, examining incredulously the face of the Jew. Finally he broke the silence and said. "You are a Jew. You are from the nation of prophets! I treat what you have said as a prophesy from G-d Himself!" The General shook Solomon's hand saluted, turned on his heel and continued his rounds. What happened the next day is now history: Washington's forces scored a telling victory over the British, which proved to be the beginning of total victory and eventually the Independence of the United States of America from England. But what is less known is that Mr. Solomon survived the war and returned to his home in Boston. One day, some two years after Valley Forge, he was sitting with his family around the dinner table when he heard a knock at his door. He rose, opened the door and was astounded to see standing there a contingent of ten very official-looking men led by none other than the first President of the United States, President George Washington himself! They entered, and the President was the first to speak. "We are here to present you with this. One of them stepped forward and took out a small expensive looking velvet box from his inside coat pocket. Mr. Solomon looked from one face to the other for some sign of what was going on. He slowly took the box, opened it and there was a gold medallion; he took it out and saw an engraved picture of a menorah inscribed with the words: 'With admiration, General George Washington' "Mr. Solomon, you don't know what you did that night at Valley Forge." The President continued. " I couldn't sleep that night because I was sure that we had no chance of winning. We lacked ammunition, we were outnumbered ten to one, and we didn't even have sufficient food or bedding. When I saw the boys lying asleep in the freezing cold under those thin blankets I made up my mind .. to surrender. But your lights and your prophecy changed all that. Mr. Solomon, if it wasn't for you and your Menorah, I don't know if we would be standing here today as free men." PostScript 5762, As the horrors of Sbarro, 5761 and Ben Yehuda 5762 and the 911 call of Twin Towers and Pentagon, let us relight the lights that fight for freedom and maintain them. Let it be by our lights and menorahs that we gather chizuk to call the enemy of the Jews the enemy who terrorizes all mankind and let us disenable that which attacks civilization and HaShem's wonderful world order of individuality and unity of all for The Promised Land where Hashem's laws are the only right and the light for all nations. Let Israel stop ignoring its mission and accept its mandate, its truncated 22% Balfour homeland and de-terrorize Israel from the Mediterranean to the Jordan, from the Red Sea to the Golan Heights. Let the world know no more terror, Let White Houses not be blemished by the misguided and misguiding and sacrifices to evil. Let this Chanukah unite Israel and America and all freedom loving, G-d fearing people with the same common goals as the Macabbees and the Revolutionary War heroes and let goodness and freedom not be negotiated. Let the values of the Forefathers and the Founding Fathers be our model and let the faithful bring back law and order, justice, security, liberty and joy. On the back of the Dollar Bill which pictures George Washington there is a Magen David because much funding for the Revolutionary War came from Chaim Solomon. Inverted there is a menorah in honor of the influence of Israel Solomon in inspiring George Washington with the will to win by the example of the Macabbees

The Rachels Children Reclamation Foundation 1995 to 2013 60 West End Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11235, www.theracheltear.blogspot.com, facebook.com/rachelschildren.org, 718-648-2610 email@example.com presented the first New York showing of the on scene documentary Dom Kodesh, Holy Blood directed and produced by Itzkak Lerner. The Documentary was first presented on July 21 2013 on Channel 10, Israel. It had wide public viewing. It tells the story of Rachel’s Tomb, Beis Lechem. It begins with the problems and ends with the lyrics, “We are Rachel’s Children” written in 1995 by Evelyn Haies, Music by Cecelia Margules. The documentary presents the hate and goes for the good to prevail. Two years in the creation; It captures the scenes, the ruach and the conflict and presents for a cure in the merit of our loving Matriarch Rachel Imeinu. It is a must see according to all who viewed it on November 2. as well as all who stopped Evelyn in the malls and stores after the july 21 showing telling her to keep fighting for the rights to the RCRF charity initial and total purchase of $600,000 of the total $900,000 of accumulates of $250, $1000, $5000, $8000, $50,000, $80,000 who were not the mssion makers but many who were together against the fired trustees who never gave the paperwork because they put the deed in their own names. The documentary is also available for your organization to preview or for a home showing by contacting RCRF, Evelyn Haies who will speak on the lessons she is learning from the shocking actions and suffering she is living with from actions of those who apologized and went for the take away and take over by not even showing in court nor listening to the police orders. There was no fee for the November 2 2013 Motsei Shabbos showing in Manhattan Beach Jewish Center, 60 West End Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11235 at 8:30 pm., Light refreshments were healthy vegetables and fruits, nuts and drinks. Please arrange for your private informative showing with a discussion by the founder of RCRF and majority owner of Beit Bnei Rachel, the House of Rachel's Children formed with a partnership with Yeshiva Beit Orot. RCRF gave the full payments and AFBO Orot was obligated to register, develop and create a yishuv. Sadly, RCRF was presented as a donor or benefactor to gather the funds that AFBO was supposed to bring and the RCRF assets were used by their chosen trustees only took from RCRF and never registered the property properly thus AFBO did not fulfill its obligation. Some say there are two sides to a story. The truth is, there are facts, money trails and fraudulant registration admitted and still those off the derech are on the take doing slander, damages and illegal occupation since Benny Elon called back those ordered to cease and desist from the property, even saying he was appointed by the trustee the companies unanimously fired, worse, harassing those who have been using the RCRF majority owned property against the RCRF mission and dreams for all the jewish people, women and childre. Do not be bystanders, tell of your participation in the greatest shiurim, symposiums, simchas and art shows and what you learned by all the research ripped and ruined, replaced and destroyed again by yeshiva bullies. RCRF was steadfast in building the bayit and will not be stopped by the 2011 interplopers back from the cease and desist order and acting against propriety and will continue to be steadfast and will continue all its programs with your participation and help, making this a foundation against all corruption and bullying, intimidating, damaging, even causing a brit milah to be cancelled after police permit, an upshurin to find the RCRF chairs and tables locked away.there was even the audacity of the yeshiva aid to bring back the stolen chairs and tables while the newly donated chairs and table replacements were being used during a shiur Your donations support our work in Beit Bnei Rachel, Rachels Tomb Walled Complex and make sure no one is turned away from celebrating their Bas Mitzvah, wedding, sheva brochas, brit milah, birthday, anniversary, memorial lecture, Rosh Chodesh shiurim, hafrassat challah, amen sessions, singles meet and mingle, open mike sessions, learn sing ins and speak outs, tehillim therapy, art classes, more. On November 2 2013 a reality was views, Learn the outrageous reality of a former MK, a Rosh Yeshiva who axed out doors and walls and threatened that our museum would be a dormitory and that forced dignified rabbis to spend Rosh Hoshana in the basement while the RCRF apartments were filled with junk. Help fight bullying. Help build the Rachel midos portrayed in the documented against the unacceptable attacks with conflict and outrageous abuse in contempt of courtand police orders. The viewing was sponsored by Evelyn Haies in memory of the 30th Yahrzeit, 28 MarCheshvan of her father Samuel Solomon,a”h who taught Evelyn the highest midos and morality, the lofty missions and inspired her to act to actualize all that is for the best, to actualize her ideals into reality. The evening was a true aliyah for Shaul ben Reb Chaim Solomon and Rachel Rabinowitz Solomon daughter of the famous Zionist Shepsel Rebbe. May their midos and morality as well as the role model of the character of Rachel Imeinu continue to give Evelyn strength to fight the wrongs and make Beit Bnei Rachel more righteous and meaningful and a place that teaches living by torah so that Beni Rachel merit to return to the land of their inheritance with the ways they must inherit.

What does Rachel Imeinu have to do with Rosh Hoshanah? by Evelyn Haies, founder and president Rachels Children Reclamation Foundation and Bnei Rachel, Inc. Remember., Mother knows best and when you know she knows best, there is tranquility. Ima Rachel was buried in Beis Lechem, on the way to Hebron, Beis Lechem, The House of Bread, means sitting at the table as a family and blessing the bread together in unity. It means security, planting vineyards, redeeming Eretz Hakodesh, our homeland, ascending to Zion, true aliyah. The true aliyah includes true judgement, the recognition of the righteous and the acceptance of His wisdom. Mother knows best because she puts truths above herself. She puts her children, her roots, their future first. Mother Rachel, Mother Israel does not pretend. Survival is not a game. "Surely you will divide your bread with the hungry, and bring the moaning poor to your home." Surely there is doing, getting, caring, sharing, endearment and betterment. Mother Israel does not ignore her kin, all Rachel's children. Mother Israel teaches her kin, pleads for her children, says, no to perversion, injustice, slander and theft., says no to hate and murder, destruction and devastation. Mother Israel does not accept the unacceptable. She cries and Hashem hears. She cries and Hashem listens. She cries and will not negotiate for the sake of her children and her children's children. Her roots from the past are the foundation of the future that there will be eternity because of love, empathy and steadfastness for the sake of Hashem. Mother Rachel did the right thing, became the mother of Sisterhood, the sister who loved her sister more than herself so her children will love loving and not hating, Jealousy, me-ism, bullying, lashing and bashing are not her ways. And she demanded that her nation because of her love be a nation that loves, creates, builds, bakes, blesses and is blessed. Like Hashem. Rachel Imeinu puts her heart where her soul is so her children can inherit creation, not destruction, kindness and well being, hope and happiness, comfort and be comforting. . The Haftorah of Yirmiyahu on Rachel is read on Rosh Hoshanah to say yes to a new beginning, creation, affirmation, continuation. Mother Rachel cries for love, self effacing, all creating, meaningful love. Mother Rachel died in Beis Lechem, forever a blessing for a house of bread, love and unity. Mother Rachel is a beginning for understanding teshuva: roots, repentance, rectification, righteousness, rights, responsibility and redemption. Our Mother Rachel is a role model. Ima Rachel is a foundation for a Happy New Year. L Shana Tova.
