  1. What beautiful news. may the Hashem shower your little Princes with all the beautiful blessings And many years (120)in good health

  2. What a limud zchus this was for Klal Yisroel; and unprecedented outpouring of generosity from Jews all around the globe, for a little girl they don’t know, just to give her a chance. Can anyone imagine what a mahapecha this must have created in shomayim. Ashreichem Yisroel!!!

  3. I noticed that there were close to 24,000 people who participated in the Chesed Fund campaign alone – a very symbolic number, as there were 24,000 people that perished in the plague that broke out following the outrage of Zimri and Kozbi in last week’s Parasha.
    Someone suggested to me a parallel with the 24,000 students of Rabbi Akiva, so I did some research and indeed fell upon an intriguing article on Aish on Parashas Pinchas that brings it all together.

    Here is a brief synopsis for those who can’t read it in its entirety.
    It is revealed in the name of the ARIZA”L that the number of Shechem’s townspeople killed by Shimon and Levi was also 24,000.
    This same tradition claims that Rabbi Akiva himself was a reincarnation of Zimri/Shechem, and his third wife, who was a convert, was a reincarnation of Kozbi/Dina. The 24,000 students of Rabbi Akiva, who were overly strict are related to the 24,000 who died in the desert for siding with Zimri’s over-inclusiveness, and to the 24,000 who died in Shechem for the same reason.

    How does everything we know about Rabbi Akiva jibe with this mystical tradition?
    If there is one thing we know for certain about Rabbi Akiva, it is that he taught his students to love one another as themselves. He preached tolerance and inclusivity.
    On the other hand, an aspect of exclusivity may be learned from the stories recorded in rabbinic sources of various attempts to entrap Rabbi Akiva in sins of sexuality – attempts that failed because Rabbi Akiva acted in the opposite manner of Zimri and Kozbi and withstood temptation. Rabbi Akiva was inclusive, but nonetheless was principled. He accepted outsiders, yet had standards. In his life, as in his death, Rabbi Akiva knew how to sanctify the Name of God.

    May the outpouring of love / Chesed for Eliana, be the Tikun we so desperately need as a catalyst to bring the Geulah speedily in our days. Amen!
