    Eight chapters of Tehilim was designated to say for shidduchim. 32, talks about finding a mate לעת מצאו it does not say מצא in the past but the present, finding now. She should always be like a kallah, who is found now. 38, Hashem should take away the pain of being alone, חושה לעזרתי. turn fast to my pain to provide my help, mate were עזר is a mate. 70, people should be rewarded according to their intentions to alleviate my pain, חושה לי עזרי provide me my mate. 82, the purpose of creation is to populate the world by getting married provided there is proper justice with truth and the bringing of peace. The world stands on the pillars of justice, truth and peace, ימוטו כל מוסדי ארץ, let us not destroy the foundation. 121, we ask Hashem to provide our mate. If it comes with the help from Hashem, עושה שמים וארץ, both heavenly and earthly needs can be provided to each other. 124, similar to 38 to alleviate pain ‘עזרנו בשם ה, the mate should come with the help of Hashem. 127, we daven for a mate to have good children, where בית can mean here asking for building a good home which will have the reward of good children. 128, One who is G-d fearing should be blessed with a good mate and children.

    Could be the men dying in the Midbar caused them a depression, not wanting to get married which stopped on Tu B’Av, so the girls became happy again and dressed up in white as a sign of celebration similar like in Yom Kippur for forgiveness.

    AAQ, I base myself on what you said, which if Milton Friedman said would not be correct as that also causes inflation. I don’t have to read him as I don’t agree with him. Increased demand because of too much money in circulation and lack of goods which are desired to buy including its costs causes inflation. President Bush Sr. called it voodoo economics.

    What Milton Friedman says is not exactly true. There is another source of inflation the costs of products which are passed on to consumers who are getting a fixed income.

    Obviously not money. There is an argument between supply side economics (Milton Friedman) and demand side (Keynesian). There is no incentive to increase supply if the demand is low, so the government must do that.

    The primary cause of inflation is not enough supply, so we increase supply through government spending.

    The Sefer Hachinuch explains that we are not suppose to pray to Hashem, have mercy on me as You have mercy on a bird by Shiluach Hakein, as we are comparing Hashem’s mercy to ours where ours comes automatically from emotions whereas Hashem’s mercy comes from His understanding. So all His emotions come from His understanding. The body parts above are a model to the functioning of our body parts below.

    The Chasam Sofer also explains that we eat hardboiled eggs at the Seder to symbolize that similar to eggs where the more they get cooked the harder they get, we the Jews the more we suffer the stronger we stand my our emunah. I heard that we are compared in Shir Hashirim to a rose among the thorns which will grow straight through avoid bending on either side not to get hurt. We the Jews also grow straight by avoiding the suffering when we bend away from Hashem.

    To explain Sam Klein who says Hashem has no feelings and then speaks about feelings. The Rambam explains that the Torah uses human expressions for our understanding, lesaber es haozen, by using descriptions, like emotions, anger, mercy.. and body parts, hands, eyes, ears, mouth..

    Tisha B’Av is related to Pesach as the first day coincides. Many things the Nazis ym’s learned from Pharaoh for example the Jewish kapos and putting those able to work and murdering the rest. Pharaoh would have done the same thing if not for the recognition of Yosef. The Chasam Sofer explains that if not for Pesach, by leaving before the time, other galusin would not have occurred and no Tisha B’av would have happened. The Binah Leitim explains that Hashem rather than fold the belt and hit us at one time, He used on us a regular belt multiple times.

    It also says עמו אנכי בצרה Hashem’s dwelling is with us in galus, the shechina. The Dubner Maggid explains what its says אנכי ארד עמך I will descend with you, and אעלך גם עלה, I will lift you out and Myself. The questions he asks, why by going down Hashem comes first whereas by coming up we come first? He compares this to a father who takes his young son to a swimming pool. When going down, to protect him, he goes down first and when coming up the protection is that the son should come first. Similarly, Hashem went down to Mitzraim first, then He took us down. However, when coming up, He takes us out first. Maybe this explains also the contradiction in the beginning of Shemos הבאים, present and באו, past. The Rabbenu Bachaya says that איש וביתו refers to Hashem and His court. So when the Jews went down to Mitzraim, Hashem came already. It will happen similarly in the current galus based on the pasuk, כימי צאתינו ממצרים אראנו נפלאות, the wonders we will see will be similar now as when we left from Mitzraim.

    Hashem does not show His presence because of His sadness that He had to destroy the Beis Hamikdash, so the shechina is in galus and hidden from us. We must daven for the galus hashechina to be revealed again. We don’t understand the tzaar of Hashem.

    ujm, can you provide your source. The way I understand that Kastner was shot because of the first court’s ruling. The second ruling was in 1958 after he was dead already.

    From Wikipedia:

    The Supreme Court of Israel overturned most of the judgment against Kasztner in 1958. The judges overturned the first count by 3–2 and the second count by 5–0. The longest majority decision was written by Judge Shimon Agranat, who said:

    During that period Kasztner was motivated by the sole motive of saving Hungary’s Jews as a whole, that is, the largest possible number under the circumstances of time and place as he estimated could be saved.
    This motive fitted the moral duty of rescue to which he was subordinated as a leader of the Relief and Rescue Committee in Budapest.
    Influenced by this motive he adopted the method of financial or economic negotiation with the Nazis.
    Kasztner’s behavior stands the test of plausibility and reasonableness.
    His behavior during his visit to Cluj (on May 3) and afterwards, both its active aspect (the plan of the “prominents”) and its passive aspect (withholding the “Auschwitz news” and lack of encouragement for acts of resistance and escape on a large scale)—is in line with his loyalty to the method which he considered, at all important times, to be the only chance of rescue.
    Therefore, one cannot find a moral fault in his behavior, one cannot discover a causal connection between it and the easing of the concentration and deportation, one cannot see it as becoming a collaboration with the Nazis.[41]

    The Dubner Maggid has a mashel on the calculation of keitzim. A man got into the wagon with his son and another man to go to the market to Leipzig. As they got into the wagon, the son asked how much more we need to travel to Leipzig? The father got very upset at him, screaming, we just started our journey why are you asking me that? After traveling an hour or two, the man asked the same question, so he answered him another hour. So the son got somewhat upset saying, why did you scream at me but answered him? The father explained that when you asked was not time yet to ask. Now. we are in the akavte demeshicha, at the ending years towards Meshiach, it is appropriate to ask as we show our hope for his coming at its fixed time which was not before at the time of the gemora when it was felt that Meshiach will come unexpectedly (before the fixed time).
    Menachem, I don’t agree what you are saying as the chizuk should come from the Torah. Our emunah must come from kedusha and not from from tuma. The means to arrive to emunah is as important as the result. If not done from kedusha, it will no last as כבלעו כך פלטו, the way one acquires one’s emunah, loses it. If acquired from kedusha, one will not lose it as the kedusha strengthens it.

    My mother a’h was saved through a German soldier. She was deported to Aushwitz. At 32 being able to work, Mengele ym’s sent her to the right but her sister (my father’s first wife and his 2 daughters) were sent to the left. Seeing that, my mother followed them by changing lanes. A German soldier twice pushed her back to the line on the right.

    Ferdinand and Isabella at the Spanish Inquisition commissioned Columbus to discover America. The Jews were able to escape to Shanghai through the Japanese (part of the Axis) Sugihara. Those are what I consider nissim guliim, open miracles. Whenever we are being exiled, Hashem provides a makom hapleita, a place to escape to through our enemies. Moshe Rabbenu was saved by Bas Pharaoh, who grew up in the house of Pharaoh, and Esther saved us from the house of Achashverus. הקב’ה מצילנו מידם, Hashem saves us through our enemies.

    Menachem, I have a problem giving credence to this sources. It also says that tumah is opposite kedusha. The Satmar Rav ztz’l says that when Aharon Hakohen threw the gold into fire and the Eigel came out obviously it did not come from kedusha.

    Why are gematrias and calculations made on goyishe dates? This whole OP is an issur. They don’t put goyishe dates on a matzeva (Maharam Shik). Everything is a coincidence. You are violating that Nissan

    The Ksav Sofer needs some explanation what tragedy personally struck them? When Moshe Rabbenu was passing away, the Jews realized that life is temporary and even a tzadik does not live forever, so it reminded them of their day of demise. Therefore, it brought them to teshuva by willing to accept mussar more easily.

    The Chasam Sofer explains why the 9th of Av was designated and not the 10th? It says ובאו בה פריצים וחיללה, when the blood shedders went inside, they made it mundane. Once they threw fire to the Beis Hamikdash from the outside, it became a house which was non-sacred any more that was burning making the beginning when they started the burning, the time to commemorate.

    What does it prove? If the Beis Hamikdash was already built by us, then Meshiach will not have to build it. So he does whatever else is necessary. If he has to build it he is Meshiach and maybe building is the one of fire.

    The Aim Habanim Semacha holds that redemption will come slowly by putting our effort into it through going to EY and building the Beis Hamikdash and the one of fire will descend on what we build as the עני רוכב על חמור. However, the Minchas Elozor, the Munkacher, Rebbi of the above, holds that it will come spontaneously.
