Disengagement in 5765?

Consider: “Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai said...when it will be close to the days of Moshiach, even children who will be in the world at that time will find secrets of wisdom, and will know from them ends [of exile] and calculations [of redemption], and at that time [G-d Almighty] will reveal [them] to everyone.” (Zohar Vayeira 118a)

By the grace of G-d
Shalom uBrocha!

As has been pointed out in Timeline of Moshiach (Messiah) and Redemption chapters in Ishiah (Isaiah) corespond to years.
According to this timeline this year 5765 corresponds to chapter 65 in Ishaiah. See if you can spot what it says about the disengagement and post your interpretations in the comments to this post.
Also consider the Rebbe's prophecies in the Sicha parshas-(weekly Torah portion) Bo 5751 one of the Sichos where he predicts the current war in Iraq and also aludes to the global war on teror and ingathering of exiles and complete redemption in the aftermath of these events
PS. The shorter abridged version of the Timeline of Moshiach and redemption in Yeshaya is found on the Chabad of Scotland website Moshiach update page
PPS. I have recieved many requests to translate the Timeline of Moshiach and Redemption commentary in French, Russian , Hebrew etc. and publish it in various forms such as booklets CD-Roms etc. If you are capable of assisting me with this or have any other questions or comments please call 617-372-2312 or email
PPS. Somewhat related to this check out the new article The Ressurection of the dead is already happening!
Yeshayahu - Chapter 65
With Rashi's Commentary

1. I allowed Myself to be sought by those who did not ask; I allowed Myself to be found by those who did not seek Me, I said, "Here I am; here I am!" to a nation not called by My name.
I allowed Myself to be sought by those who did not ask The Holy One, blessed be He, replies to him, It is impossible not to avenge Myself on them, for I allowed Myself to be sought by them by reproving them through My prophets, but they did not ask.
I said, “Here I am; here I am!” Return to Me, and I am ready to accept you.
to a nation not called by My name That did not wish to be called by My name.
2. I spread out My hands all day to a contrary people, who go in a way that is not good, after their thoughts.
I spread out My hands in order to accept them with repentance.
contrary Heb. סוֹרֵר, turning away from the road.
3. The people who vex Me to My face continually; those who sacrifice in gardens and burn incense on the bricks.
those who sacrifice in gardens They erect idols in their gardens, and there they burn incense on the bricks.
4. They sit among the graves, and with corpses they lodge; those who eat swine flesh, and broth of abominations is in their vessels.
They sit among the graves so that a spirit of defilement of demons should rest upon them.
and with corpses Heb. וּבַנְּצוּרִים. They are the bodies of the dead, who are as placed in a siege (מָצוֹר), unable to get out.
and broth of abominations Heb. מְרַק, despicable broth. Comp. (Jud. 6:20) “And the broth (הַמָּרָק) pour out.”
5. Those who say, "Keep to yourself, do not come near me for I am holier than you"; these are smoke in My nostrils, a burning fire all day long.
Those who say to the righteous, קְרַב אֵלֶי, “Keep to yourself and do not come near me.”
for I am holier than you Heb. כִּי קְדַשְׁתִּי. For I am holier and purer than you. In this manner Jonathan renders.
these abominations that they committed are as smoke, wrath in My nostrils.
6. Behold it is inscribed before Me; I will not remain silent until I have recompensed, and I will recompense onto their bosom.
Behold it is inscribed Their sin is inscribed before Me, and their sentence has already been decreed and sealed.
7. "Your iniquities and the iniquities of your fathers together," said the Lord, "that they burnt incense on the mountains, and on the hills they blasphemed Me, and I will mete out the recompense for their deed first into their bosom."
Your iniquities Yours and your forefathers’ together I will recompense you.
8. So said the Lord, "As when wine is found in the cluster, and one shall say, "Destroy it not, for a blessing is in it"; so will I do for the sake of My servants, not to destroy everything.
As when wine is found in the cluster Jonathan renders: As Noah was found innocent in the generation of the Flood.
the wine This is Noah, who was sweet.
in the cluster Heb. בָּאֶשְׁכּוֹל. In the bereft (הַמְשֻׁכָּל) generation. This may also be interpreted according to its apparent meaning.
for the sake of My servants For the sake of every righteous man found among them.
9. And I will extract seed from Jacob and from Judah, the heir of My mountains, and My elect shall inherit it, and My servants shall dwell there.
10. And the Sharon shall become a sheepfold and the Valley of Achor a place for cattle to lie, for My people who sought Me.
the Sharon The name of a region in the land of Israel.
and the Valley of Achor As its apparent meaning.
11. You, who forsake the Lord, who forget My holy mount, who set a table for Gad and who fill mingled wine for a number.
who forsake the Lord The wicked of Israel who adopted paganism and died in their wickedness.
who set a table for Gad The name of a pagan deity on the name of the zodiac, and in the language of the mishnah, (Shabbath 67b) “May my fate be lucky (גָד גַּדִּי) and not fatigued.”
for a number Heb. לַמְנִי. According to the number of the computation of the priests, they would fill basins of mingled wine.
mingled wine Heb. מִמְסָ, wine mingled with water as was customary. Comp. (Prov. 23: 30) “To search for mingled wine (מִמְסָ).” Also (ibid. 9:2), “She mingled (מָסְכָה) her wine.” Some interpret לַמְנִי, to the pagan deities that you appointed (מִנִּיתֶם) over yourselves, but אֶתְכֶם וּמָנִיתִי, which is not punctuated וּמִנִּיתִי with a ‘dagesh,’ indicates that it is an expression of counting.
12. And I will count you out to the sword, and all of you shall kneel to the slaughter, since I called and you did not reply, I spoke and you did not hearken, and you did what was evil in My eyes, and what I did not desire, you chose.
13. Therefore, so said the Lord God, "Behold, My servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry; behold, My servants shall drink, but you shall thirst; behold, My servants shall rejoice, but you shall be ashamed.
My servants The righteous [of Israel].
but you who rebel against Me.
14. Behold, My servants shall sing from joy of heart, but you shall cry out from sorrow of heart, and from a broken spirit you shall wail.
15. And you shall leave your name for an oath for My elect, "And the Lord God shall slay you," but to His servants He shall call another name.
your name for an oath From your name shall be taken a curse and an oath for generations, “If it does not befall me as it befell So-and-so.”
and… shall slay you an eternal death.
but to His servants He shall call another name A good name and a mention for a blessing.
16. For whoever himself on the earth shall bless himself by the true God, and whoever swears on the earth shall swear by the true God, for the first troubles have been forgotten and they have been hidden from My eyes.
For whoever blesses himself on the earth For My fear shall be over all of them, and the earth shall be full of knowledge, and whoever praises himself or lauds himself on the earth, will bless himself by the true God, he will praise himself that he is a servant of the true God, the God of truth, Who realized and observed this, His promise.
for the first troubles have been forgotten Therefore, they shall call Me the true God.
17. For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the first ones shall not be remembered, neither shall they come into mind.
new heavens The princes above shall be renewed, and the princes of Israel shall be the upper princes and the princes of the heathens (the nations [Parshandatha]) will be lower, and so on the earth. ([K’li Paz reads:] The princes above shall be renewed, to raise up the humble and to humble the high ones, and so on the earth.) And some say that there will actually be new heavens, and that is correct, for Scripture proves it (infra 66: 22): “For as the new heavens, etc.”
18. But rejoice and exult forever [in] what I create, for behold I create Jerusalem a rejoicing and its people an exultation.
19. And I will rejoice with Jerusalem, and I will exult with My people, and a sound of weeping or a sound of crying shall no longer be heard therein.
20. There shall no longer be from there a youth or an old man who will not fill his days, for the youth who is one hundred years old shall die, and the sinner who is one hundred years old shall be cursed.
a youth Heb. עוּל יָמִים, a youth. Comp. (Lam. 2:11) “young children (עוֹלֵל).” [Hence,] יָמִים עוּל means young in years.
who is one hundred years old shall die He shall be subject to punishments to be liable to death for a capital sin. So it is explained in Gen. Rabbah (26:2).
shall be cursed for a sin requiring an anathema.
21. And they shall build houses and inhabit them, and they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
22. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat, for like the days of the tree are the days of My people, and My elect shall outlive their handiwork.
like the days of the tree Jonathan renders: the tree of life.
23. They shall not toil in vain, neither shall they bear for terror, for they are seed blessed by the Lord, and their offspring shall be with them.
24. And it shall be, when they have not yet called, that I will respond; when they are still speaking, that I will hearken.
25. A wolf and a lamb shall graze together, and a lion, like cattle, shall eat straw, and a serpent-dust shall be his food; they shall neither harm nor destroy on all My holy mount," says the Lord.
shall eat straw and will not have to destroy animals.
and a serpent Indeed, dust is his food, which is always available for him. And the Midrash Aggadah explains: And a lion, like cattle, shall eat straw. Since we find that Esau will fall into the hands of the sons of Joseph, as it is said (Obadiah 18): “The house of Esau shall become stubble, and the house of Joseph a flame etc.” But [that they should fall] into the hands of the remaining tribes, who were compared to beasts, we do not find. It is, therefore, stated: “And a lion, like cattle, shall eat straw.” Those tribes that were compared to a lion, such as Judah and Dan, like Joseph, who was compared to an ox, shall devour Esau who was compared to straw.

This just in:
Chief Rabbi of Scotland - Rabbi Chaim Yehudah Jacobs Shlit"a who was the 1st to publish the original timeline of redemption in Yeshayahu (Isiah) online writes to my friend Aharon Benjamim Frimer ( ): wrote:

In line with other remozim [alusions] from Sefer Yeshia [Book of Isiah] thru the years of the Rebbe's nesius [leadership] there is an unbelievable remez [alusion] for the current situation of evicting Ch"s [G-d forbid] Yidden [Jews] from Gush Katif.

The Novi [prophet] says in chaper 65 which is [corresponds to ] the current year pesukim [verses] 22-23 They will build houses and dwell in them, plant vineyards and reap from them. See Radak [comentary of Rabbi David Kimkhi] on posuk [verse] 23. Not like the tochocho [curse in Deuteronomy] when they build and don't dwell, planted but don't reap but now they will dwell and will reap. So we are in for some big nissim [miracles] in the weeks ahead.

Keep in touch. We are in Cedarhurst just now with Sholom and his family. I will look u up when we visit Crown Heights IYH [Im yirtzeh Hashem - G-d willing] to say hello. You can call me on Sholom's cell when u have a chance 917 559 6044.

Hope we will be able to see each other IYH [G-d willing] here or in Yerusholyim [Jerusalem]. There's no question that some miracle is about to unfold..

My comment:
By the grace of G-d
Shalom and blessings!
By the way also note the verses 24-25 according to their simple meaning (not he Rashi's comentary stated there which seems alegorical here ) they can allude for example also to the fact that IRA and the Columbian Rebls just few weeks ago gave up the path of terorrism to acheve their goals and we can G-d willing excpect to see more of the same in other parts of the world and hopefully in the land of Israel soon.(see also issiah 66 for more on this)
Also see my article about Revival of the dead happening in out time bellow:

Resurrection of the "dead" is happening now.
( if you are still Christian and all of this sounds a bit "off the wall" to you check out Messiah Watch International : and also you may want to check out especially if you have any English , Irish, Scotish, Sweedish, Danish or other western european ancestry (hint you may be from among the 10 lost tribes of Israel)...

This story bellow is reprinted here from the current edition of Beis Moshiach International Magazine to make it easier for you to imagine and understand how G-d often saves his people even when all natural means seem exhausted which seems to be very much the situation now as far as far as the terible decree to exile of more than 8000 Jews from their homes in the Land of Yisrael which is just another test of our faith in G-d in these last moments before the completion of the redemption.

HU RA: The Rest of the Story By Prof. Shimon Silman, RYAL Institute and Touro College

Author: Boruch Merkur

It was January 1953. The torture of the doctors was in full force. False confessions were flowing like the blood of the victimized doctors. And the city of Moscow was morose.
In this final section, we describe the dark days in Russia as the case of the doctors was being prepared for a public “show trial.” Then came Purim and the call of “Hu Ra!” at the Purim farbrengen, bringing Stalin’s scheme to a sudden halt – and his own death. * Part 3 of 3

(Continued from Issue #506)

The winter in Moscow was unusually snowy and cold. There were no thaws, and the ice on the streets of Moscow grew thicker and thicker. Reports circulated of a certain “Day X” when millions of Jews throughout Russia would be deported. Each day brought new reports of threats, plots, and expulsions, and lists of Jews were being drawn up in Moscow, Leningrad, and other major cities. As far away as Kiev, a Jewish doctor was advised by one of his non Jewish patients to leave the city and move to a small town, if possible.

More Jewish plots and conspiracies were being “discovered” and Jews were being arrested en masse.

Meanwhile, Stalin worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail of the plot and its exposure would achieve maximum impact while appearing completely credible.

On January 13, an article in Pravda titled “Spies and Murderers Under the Mask of Professor-Doctors” revealed the Doctors’ Plot to the public. It described a “band of doctor-poisoners” who were aggressively involved in murdering Soviet leaders. It listed the names of the Jewish doctors and claimed that they were working for U.S. and British intelligence. The Jews in general were identified as enemies of the state, along with the Americans and British.

More newspaper articles were printed to incite the public against the Jews. They told people to look for enemies and referred to the purges of the 1930’s, an indication that they were about to be repeated. Anti-Semitic meetings at offices and factories vehemently demanded that the criminals be put to a terrible death. Many volunteered their services.


On February 17, a memorandum was sent to Malenkov recommending the construction of 4 prison camps in remote areas of Russia: 1 in Kazakhstan, 1 in Irkutsk, and 2 in Komi. It was to these camps that the Jews were to be deported. The construction of the camps began immediately.

Khrushchev later told a Communist Party meeting how, during the Doctors’ Plot, Stalin became inflamed with hatred against the Jews. His rage grew until, shortly before his stroke, “he told a meeting of Soviet leaders that he had decided to gather all the community together and transport them to a northern region within a new pale.” Khrushchev told his audience that when Mikoyan and Voroshilov protested and said that such conduct was worthy of Hitler, Stalin worked himself into a fury.

Another cynical and sadistic element was introduced into the story. It was not enough for Stalin to just deport the Jews. He wanted them to request the deportation! A letter was drafted in which the Jews would appeal to Stalin for “protection from the justifiable anger of the Russian people” by transferring them to a far-off region. This was to be an open letter to Stalin signed by prominent Jewish personalities. The letter, however, was not publicized at that time. (A copy of the letter was found and published in a Russian journal in 1997.)

Meanwhile, the interrogation of the doctors continued. By mid-February all the doctors had confessed except for Dr. Sophia Karpai. On Feb. 18 they brought Karpai to a face-to-face confrontation with Dr. V. N. Vinogradov, who had worked with her at Valdai. He had just confessed to murdering Zhdanov and the purpose of the confrontation was to pressure Karpai to confess also. They could not go to an open trial with the doctors until each told the same story. But it did not succeed. Karpai continued to refuse to admit any guilt. “No, I don’t confirm it,” was her response.

None of the other doctors held out so long. Her face-to-face confrontation with Vinogradov certainly made her realize that she was truly alone. However, notwithstanding the fact that she was brutally beaten and kept in a refrigerated cell without sleep to compel a confession, she did not confess. Her heroism in the face of all this is truly astounding.

The delay in the trial caused by her courageous stand may have saved the lives of millions of Jews, for in the meantime, Stalin died and the decree was annulled. As Brent and Naumov write, “The fate of the Jews of Russia might have depended on this latter day, unknown Esther.”


“The Doctors’ Plot ended much as it began, in mystery,” write Brent and Naumov as they begin to discuss what is known about the death of Stalin. They continue, “There is more that we don’t know about Stalin’s death than that we do....Each published version of his death significantly contradicts every other.”

Another author writes, “It is a paradox that while the details of his final illness were

broadcast to the whole world, the atmosphere of mystery shrouding the circumstances of the death of Stalin has never been dispersed. A number of people, satisfied with the information given, accept the fact that Stalin died of cerebral hemorrhage. Many, suspecting that his end was altogether too opportune, speak of it as a miracle that saved Russia from a new reign of terror. Some are of the opinion that the ‘course of nature was assisted.’ Others, dismissing his illness as fictitious, believe that Stalin was murdered.”

As we mentioned at the beginning of this paper (see Part 1), the death of Stalin was brought about by Melech HaMoshiach – “By the breath of his mouth he shall put the wicked to death” – at the farbrengen of Purim, 5713. We will now trace the sequence of events leading up to Stalin’s death and try to correlate them with the events occurring in “770” at the same time, noting an eight-hour time difference.

While the reports of Stalin’s death contradict each other also in the times of certain events, Brent & Naumov have attempted to sort out and analyze this information. In addition to documents available to earlier researchers, they have had access to the report of the doctors who treated Stalin while he was dying. This report was submitted to the Central Committee in July 1953, stamped “Top Secret” and filed away. It was apparently unread for fifty years until 2003, when Brent and Naumov were given access to it.

Purim 5713 was Sunday, March 1, 1953. On the night of Purim (Saturday night, February 28), Stalin sat down to a party in his dacha with Beria, Malenkov, Khrushchev, and Bulganin. Sometime around 4:00 a.m. [9:00 p.m., the night of Purim, in New York], in the middle of an angry tirade about the slow progress of the Doctors’ Plot, Stalin suddenly broke off in the middle of a sentence and went into his room. This was to be his last tirade.

Stalin did not come out of his room the next day, nor was there any sign of movement in his room. Though worried, the staff could not enter his room without permission. At 6:30 p.m. [10:30 a.m. – Shacharis, Purim morning, in New York] a light went on in Stalin’s room. At 10:30 p.m. or later [2:30 p.m. – Mincha time – in New York], a guard found Stalin sprawled on the floor near his writing table. Around 11:00 p.m., Beria phoned the dacha and told the guards not to say anything about Stalin’s sickness. Doctors did not arrive until 7:00 a.m., or later, the next morning [11:00 p.m. in New York, during the Purim farbrengen]. Why was there such a delay in calling the doctors? There are two possible reasons: 1) They may have been afraid that they would be held responsible for any mistakes made in Stalin’s treatment or, more likely, 2) they wanted him to die.

In any case, it appears that the declaration of “Hu Ra” at the Purim farbrengen occurred around the time that the doctors began treating Stalin. They found him in a deep unconscious state from which he never recovered and diagnosed a cerebral hemorrhage. His condition steadily worsened until Thursday, March 5 when, at 9:50 p.m., the evil Stalin died. Haman was dead: “When the wicked are gone there is rejoicing.”

Many have suggested that Stalin was poisoned. If so, the man who would have done it, or at least have been responsible for it, would have been Beria. And it would have been with Khrushchev’s complicity. There is, in fact, reason to believe this. Molotov said that Beria told him, “I did him in! I saved all of you!” claiming to be responsible for Stalin’s death. In fact, Beria had good reason to kill Stalin since Stalin was in the process of preparing a case against Beria with the goal of having him eliminated.

Brent & Naumov describe a scenario, suggested by a Dr. Lawrence S. Cohen, in which Beria would have slipped a poison, such as warfarin crystals, into the wine that Stalin was drinking at the party on Feb. 28. Warfarin is a tasteless and colorless blood thinner which was administered to patients with heart disease. A high dosage over several days could induce hemorrhaging and a stroke in a patient with acute arteriosclerosis, which Stalin had. (Another Russian historian, Edvard Radzinski, interviewed the guard that found Stalin on the night of March 1. He said that after Stalin’s party was over, an order was given by the head guard, Khrustalev, for all the guards to go home. Radzinski speculates that it may have been at this time that Stalin was poisoned by Khrustalev, at Beria’s orders.)

Following this line of thought, one must wonder if such a poison might not have been administered by the doctors who treated Stalin, at Beria’s orders. Recall that they began their treatment of Stalin around the time that everyone was calling out “Hu Ra!” at the Purim farbrengen in “770.”


Immediately after Stalin dies, the Doctors’ Plot was reversed. Beria, the head of the newly created MVD (Ministry of Internal Affairs), in one of his first official acts, ordered a “complete review” of the Doctor’s Plot. To expedite the process, he appointed a special commission. On March 17, Ryumin (the other Haman) was arrested and accused of falsifications and perversion in the Doctors’ Plot.

On March 31 a “Decree on the termination of criminal prosecution and the freeing of the prisoners in the Doctors’ Plot” was issued by the MGB under Beria’s direction. It stated in part, “Taking into account that all the arrested doctors in the present case were illegally imprisoned...we decree: In view of the absence of free from custody and with full rehabilitation those imprisoned in this case.”

On April 3, during Pesach, the doctors were freed. The same day, the Soviet press published a communiquי issued by the MVD which said, “On the basis of the finding of the investigation commission specially set up by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR to verify the case, the above-mentioned [doctors] and others implicated in this case have been fully cleared of the charges preferred against them and...have been released from custody. The persons guilty of the improper conduct of the investigation have been arrested and are criminally held responsible.”

On April 6, Pravda reported that “The result of a review of the Doctors’ Plot showed that the doctors had been arrested by the former Ministry of State security (MGB) incorrectly, without any legal basis....The examination showed that accusations brought forward against the accused were false.” It called Ryumin “a secret enemy of the government” and a “criminal adventurist.” He was later executed.

* * *

“And he [Melech HaMoshiach] will judge the poor with justice and he will admonish with fairness the humble of the earth; and he will strike [the evil ones of] the earth with the rod of his mouth and with the speech of his lips he will put the wicked to death.”
