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

    Press Release by Evelyn Haies, Founder and President of Rachels’ Children Reclamation Foundation 1995 and Bnei Rachel Corp , majority owner of Beit Bnei Rachel. Beis Lechem Israel., 718-648-2610

    On Rosh Chodesh Tevet, RCRF hosted programs from Beis Lechem to Brooklyn and they were all reminding the participants that affirmation is the ingredient for renewal.
    Rabbi Ephraim Sprecher dean of Diaspora Yeshiva on Mount Zion brought a taste of Jerusalem and Torah truths to Brooklyn and the audience not only noshed salads and pastas, nuts and fruits but wisdom from the story of Miriam and the fact that she knew to say no to the divorce of the fathers and mothers which would cancel the future, doubling the decree of pharaoh, killing the future girls as well as the boys. Not only did she save the girls, she had a brother Moshe Rabbeinue and the Jewish people got the Torah, Eretz Hachodesh, the roadmap, the future. A little girl saying no, the women not giving their jewelry for the golden calf were the true meraglim and a lesson for today. Righteousness comes before wrong. Rabbi Sprecher made the sudience understand that the Greeks wanted to cancel Rosh Chodesh because it was an inspiration for women to understand their merits and their need to affirm. Where would we be without Miriam, without Rachel’s son Yosef who rose from the pit to be a viceroy and save the Jewish people. Where are we when we forget Rachel, Yosef and Miriam. He presented that Chanukah is a nes because the Macabees affirmed themselves and their essence, the essentials for being a righteous people. From victory to brotherly hate, from forgetting Josef we lose. By celebrating Rosh Chodesh, Rachel Imeinu, Miriam and that Yaakov called Ben Oni BenYamin, we learn a lesson for today. Surrendering to lies, self denial is inviting defeat. Inviting defeat even after victory is a crime of cowardliess, halts the coming of the redemption, allows discord to destroy.
    RCRF will again be saying yes to Rosh Chodesh in Beit Bnei Rachel and in Brooklyn. In Brooklyn we will view the Documentary Holy Blood aired on Channel 10 on July 21 2013. At Beit Bnei Rachel, we will host the women of Efrat still remembering our murdered Sara Blaustein hyd. Rosh Chodesh Shevat shiurim in Beit Bnei Rachel, this Tuesday, December 31 is sponsored by Ricky Zegelman of Efrat. On Wednesday, Atara Gur, Rachel Imeinu scholar will present her weekly shiur now on Women and the Jewish holidays.
    Learning about women and Rosh Chodesh, the month of Shevat is also the renewal of the trees. on Tu B' Shevat, Thursday, January 16, 2014, Annie Orensten of Maale Adumim will present a program on the renewal of the trees, nature, our land, blossoming life. ,
    Rabbi Sprecher asked that even with the miracle of Chanukah why isn’t there a full redemption, Is it because some look to the Greeks, the Romans, the unaffiliated and the unafilliating and not their own righteousness that makes them worthy of their inheritance. Come learn with RCRF that the nes is the women, their dreams, strengths, ability to say no and not surrender to irrational obstacles and to say yes to creation, nourishment with Torah, truth and for triumph. Without Rachel Imeinu there would be no Yosef Hatzaddik. Without Miriam there would be no Moshe Rabbeinu.
    Because the righteous women merit come celebrate Rosh Chodesh, the holiday for women, their non work day because their work will bring the Redemption because it’s not politics and platitudes, self negation, but creation, affirmation, purity, perseverance for perfection according to the roadmap of Hashem.
