    Can anyone give me some background on this?

    Loneliness… Health issues… Parnassah problems… Debts that won’t go away…
    Now is Your Time to be Heard in Heaven!
    If you – or anyone you know – desperately need a shidduch (to be married), or to have children, or need shemirah (to be
    guarded from harm) – the time of your
    complete deliverance is NOW!
    …but you have only a few days to make it happen!

    Tuesday, the 11th day of the month of Cheshvan (November 4th), is the yahrtzeit of Rochel
    Imeinu, a”h.

    This is the greatest time for deliverance of the year – Mama Rochel is waiting for you,
    ready to collect each and every tear and every broken heart from any of her children.

    On this day, the Admor, the mekubal Rabbi Yaakov Ades, shlita, the illustrious
    miracle-working son of Hagaon Harav Yehuda Ades, shlita, the Rosh Yeshivah of
    Yeshivah Porat Yosef and member of the Great Beit Din, and the grandson of the holy
    mekubal Rabbi Avraham Chaim Ades, zt”l, Rosh Yeshivah of Yeshivat Hamekubalim
    for people who need miracles and שע"ה in Jerusalem, will hold a special tikkun
    yeshuos, at the gravesite of Mama Rochel on her special day.

    The holy mekubal – known for his miracles and astonishingly powerful tefillot, prayed
    with outstanding intent while literally awash in tears, are performed with special
    kavanot (kabbalistic intentions) – will be praying for your specific salvation at the
    gravesite of Mama Rochel. The prayers will take place for one whole year plus ten
    as this is the complete tikkun for people – (שע"ה days (375 days, numerically spelling))
    who are needy in all these areas.

    This tikkun, performed in accordance with the divination and contemplation of the
    holy Arizal and Rashash, is the total rectification even for people who were not helped
    by anything before!
    "These tefillot have unparalleled segulah to bring deliverance to anyone who
    is needy in health, children, livelihood, finding one’s intended zivug, and being
    guarded from evil. With the merit of Mama Rochel, all who are fortunate enough
    to participate in the tikkun are sure to see profound miracles in their lives, b’ezrat
    Hashem,” said HaRav Ades.

    The holy ascetic, whose eyes are removed from this material world, who has accepted
    upon himself tremendous hardships for the sake of the children of Israel, will conduct
    the tikkun at the gravesite of Rochel Imeinu on Tuesday, the 11th of the month of
    Cheshvan (November 4th), along with thousands of Jews from all over the world.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

        Rachel, the beloved wife of the Patriarch Jacob died in childbirth. Jacob chose to bury his wife in Bethlehem rather than at the Patriarchs Tomb in Hebron because he foresaw that his descendants would pass this site during their exile into Babylon and that Rachel would pray for their safety and ultimate return.

        For millennia, Jews have made pilgrimages to Rachel's Tomb, considered the third holiest shrine in the Land of Israel. The site has absorbed countless tears of barren women beseeching G-d in the merit of Mother Rachel, who herself had been barren for many years. Jews have poured out their hearts there, praying for everything from world redemption to a suitable marriage-partner.

        To this very day, men and women go to Rachel's Tomb to shed tears and beg "Mother Rachel" to intercede with G-d on their behalf -- for the health of a loved one or for Divine Intervention for those in need.

        So a yahrtzeit is remembering someone's death, it's kind of like prayers for Mary on the Feast of Assumption in Catholicism:
        O MARY, Virgin most blessed and Mother of Our Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ, through thy mercy I beseech thee to come to my aid, and to inspire me with such confidence in thy power, that I may have recourse to thee, pray to thee, and implore thy aid in all needs of soul and body. -Age of Mary

        Jeremiah 31:15 Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.

        Matthew 2:18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

          I am not sure that Jacob foresaw the Babylonian captivity. Perhaps that is only in rabbinic tradition?

            That first part is the folklore behind it, from a Jewish perspective.


            • #7
              Yeah, I sort of thought that.

                Another interesting email...

                Excellent response . . . .
                A short time ago, Iran's Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged the Muslim World to boycott anything and everything that originates with the Jewish people.

                In response, Meyer M. Treinkman, a pharmacist, out of the kindness of his heart, offered to assist them in their boycott as follows:

                "Any Muslim who has Syphilis must not be cured by Salvarsan discovered by a Jew, Dr. Ehrlich. He should not even try to find out whether he has Syphilis, because the Wasserman Test is the discovery of a Jew. If a Muslim suspects that he has Gonorrhea, he must not seek diagnosis, because he will be using the method of a Jew named Neissner.

                "A Muslim who has heart disease must not use Digitalis, a discovery by a Jew, Ludwig Traube.

                Should he suffer with a toothache, he must not use Novocaine, a discovery of the Jews, Widal and Weil.

                If a Muslim has Diabetes, he must not use Insulin, the result of research by Minkowsky, a Jew. If one has a headache, he must shun Pyramidon and Antypyrin, due to the Jews, Spiro and Ellege.

                Muslims with convulsions must put up with them because it was a Jew, Oscar Leibreich, who proposed the use of Chloral Hydrate.

                Arabs must do likewise with their psychic ailments because Freud, father of psychoanalysis, was a Jew.

                Should a Muslim child get Diphtheria, he must refrain from the Schick" reaction which was invented by the Jew, Bella Schick.

                "Muslims should be ready to die in great numbers and must not permit treatment of ear and brain damage, work of Jewish Nobel Prize winner, Robert Baram.

                They should continue to die or remain crippled by Infantile Paralysis because the discoverer of the anti-polio vaccine is a Jew, Jonas Salk.

                "Muslims must refuse to use Streptomycin and continue to die of Tuberculosis because a Jew, Zalman Waxman, invented the wonder drug against this killing disease.

                Muslim doctors must discard all discoveries and improvements by dermatologist Judas Sehn Benedict, or the lung specialist, Frawnkel, and of many other world renowned Jewish scientists and medical experts.

                "In short, good and loyal Muslims properly and fittingly should remain afflicted with Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Heart Disease, Headaches, Typhus, Diabetes, Mental Disorders, Polio Convulsions and Tuberculosis and be proud to obey the Islamic boycott."

                Oh, and by the way, don't call for a doctor on your cell phone because the cell phone was invented in Israel by a Jewish engineer.

                Meanwhile I ask, what medical contributions to the world have the Muslims made?"

                The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000; that is ONE BILLION TWO HUNDRED MILLION or 20% of the world's population.

                They have received the following Nobel Prizes:

                1988 - Najib Mahfooz

                1978 - Mohamed Anwar El-Sadat

                TOTAL: 7 SEVEN

                The Global Jewish population is approximately 14,000,000; that is FOURTEEN MILLION or about 0.02% of the world's population.

                The Jews are NOT promoting brainwashing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims.

                The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants.

                There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church.

                There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people. The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

                Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

                Muslims must ask 'what can they do for humankind' before they demand that humankind respects them.

                Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel's part, the following two sentences really say it all:

                'If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel."

                Benjamin Netanyahu made this comment: "General Eisenhower warned us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead."

                He did this because he said in words to this effect: 'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'

                Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum, because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred.

                It hasn't been removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

                It is now more than 65 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.

                Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.
