The Coming Red Heifer

The Temple Institute recently went and inspected the 2 red heifers that will be 2 years old by September. They say everything is looking good at this point and that they will continue to inspect them as they get closer to being 2 years old.

I wrote about the red heifer sacrifice happening by December of 2020 in order to fulfill the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on Winter solstice among other things. I said this 3 years ago in my book The Temple, The Abomination and The Holy Place. It will be burnt by then. Mark my words

When it is burnt, start counting per Daniel 12. Ironically it will take you to around the great American eclipse in 2024. I’m finishing up a paper now about all of that.

Mount of Corruption: part 2

I want you to pay special attention to what I’m about to say. On September 27th, 2019 the Edomite Jews offered a Noahide sacrifice to their god at the Southern point of Mount of Olives. This particular area is known as Mount Corruption based on Solomon letting his pagan wives offer sacrifices to Chemosh and Milcom (Moloch sacrifice). Today this area is owned by the Jordanian Hashemite Kingdom and there was a 5 star hotel built right above the lookout called Mitzpeh Rehavam. Last year these Jews of the Sanhedrin (the ancient judges of Israel who condemned Jesus to death), made a sacrificial offering representing the 70 Nations that the Sanhedrin has appointed themselves over. The 70 Nations are a misnomer, they in fact represent the 70 principalities that are over the nations. The watchers or fallen angels.

In order for them to do their first public sacrifice of a blemished lamb, they used a Gentile Greek man named Malki Drossos. Malki claims he is the Elijah to come. Now this may just seem like nonsense to you but it isn’t. These people are for real and GOD is using them for his judgement. Malki wasn’t even supposed to kill this lamb but did when the Rhode Island man backed out at the last second. Matter of fact, Malki had been doing the Passover sacrifice for a few years up to that point and you will never guess what the name of the lamb was for the 2019 sacrifice. His kids named it CORONA. This is no joke.

So on 9/27/19, they offered a blasphemous sacrifice to their god and were planning to do another on Passover. Obviously they couldn’t because the CORONAVIRUS had hit. And yes, I believe the first blemished lamb sacrifice got the ball rolling for the deception we are seeing today. Judgement from GOD. Well they are now getting permission to do the sacrifice and this time it is on May 7th, 2020. This is the day before Pesach Sheni or the Second Passover. The Second Passover from Numbers 9 was for those who were traveling and couldn’t make it to Jerusalem for the regular Passover. Obviously, since Jesus crucifixion and resurrection, there is NO NEED for any lamb to be sacrificed. Jesus is the Lamb slain from the foundations of the world. Our last Passover.

So let me also add that this second Passover is for those who have been defiled by a dead body and actually at this time, you are allowed to have leaven in your house. During the regular Passover there was absolutely no leaven which represents sin in anyone’s house. That’s why this is called the Feast of Unleavened Bread. But let me back up a second. They originally wanted to slaughter this lamb on Tuesday the 7th of April, the day before their Passover. It just so happened that this day was also another ritual day of Chaos Magick. The ritual of the Seal of Solomon. I’ve written about it exclusively on my blog. You can read about it there. This is a real demonic conjuring of loosing and binding demons. Luckily they didn’t do it on that day but I have a funny feeling something happened that day in Jerusalem.

So on May 7th they will ritually slaughter another lamb at the same site that they did the first one at Mitzpeh Rehavam. Some believe this is where the Red Heifer will be burnt (which actually may happen this September or next Passover). I wrote in my book 4 years ago about this being a potential site for this abomination and it likes like this may be it. Especially since they will have 2 sacrifices under their belt at this place.

Here is what they have to say about this site: “A lookout opposite the Seven Arches Hotel on the crest of the Mount of Olives is named Tatzpit Rehavam or Mitzpe Rehavam in memory of the assassinated Israeli government minister Rehavam Zeโ€™evi. It is believed that this area is the approximate location where the red heifer (parah adumah) was sacrificed during the period of the Temple. The lookout is just above the ancient necropolis (cemetery) on the Mount of Olives. This is probably the best lookout in Jerusalem to see the highlights of the Old City.” ( One other thing about these Arches. I wrote a book about the Arch of Palmyra’s Arch of Triumph replica a few years ago. This was also leading up to what we are seeing today. Do you remember how test kits from Geneva were tainted with the coronavirus? The Arch was there at the time of this.

So in my opinion and after years of research, this future red heifer sacrifice is the final abomination of desolation. These 2 sacrifices that are abominations and are a stench to the nostrils of GOD are leading up to this. These are demonic rituals. Period. I am one to believe that this area was also where Jesus was crucified. They are Blaspheming the site of His crucifixion where Jesus redeemed mankind through the shedding of His blood. Things are moving quickly and will continue to move at “warp speed”. Pay attention. Open your eyes and ears and DO NOT BE DECIEVED.

This is what there flyer says:

Ok. Let me take a go at it now. In Hebrew, this reads: “On May 7th, 2020 or 14 Iyar, the Sanhedrin and the Edomite Jews are going to sacrifice a lamb through ritual according to the second Passover, according to Numbers 9:9-11. We figured we didn’t piss GOD off enough with the sacrifice of a blemished lamb on September 27th, 2019, where we had a Gentile slit the throat of a lamb and then burn it, that we would do a second one on the Mount of Olives. This is building up to us doing the ultimate blasphemy and abomination at the end of the year with burning a red heifer. So join us for the end of the world and watch Jerusalem be destroyed once and for all”

I think I translated that right. ๐Ÿ‘

Dybbuk in Hermon and a Red Heifer in Golan

A dybbuk they say? I specifically mention it in my book on how a Dybbuk will be released when the red heifer is burnt. Evidently prisoners in the Hermon prison have been claiming that demons or specifically dybbuks, have been harassing some and possessing them. They say it has been going on for 10 years up at Hermon prison. Very interesting. Not just to Muslims either, Jews alike.

The BRIDE of Christ. In my book I theorize that a dybbuk(s) will be released through the burning of this red heifer. Now keep this in mind when reading below. “Dybbuks were typically male spirits who possessed women, often on the eve of their weddings, says Rachel Elior.” Let me also point out that I wrote the the church suffers according to the red heifer. Double edge sword.

“Whenever the church suffers, she suffers according to the pattern of the red heifer.” Glenn Kreider on Jonathan Edwards interpretation of Revelation 6:9. Christians and Jews are anticipating the Red Heifer. Take into consideration what Edwards says. Be careful what you wish for.

Here are the news reports of the story from January.

Dybbuk in Hebrew is highlighted.

All of this comes at an interesting time. Remember, this all came to light around the first of January (the same time this virus became known in China and don’t forget that the Chinese president called this a “demon virus”). Now as of April 6th, we are in a full blown global lockdown according to this “pandemic”. And it hasn’t stopped people from acting ridiculous.

Remember to wash your hands in 6 easy steps. “Many Orthodox Jews keep a basin of water by the bed so that one may wash his hands before getting up. One reason is that a dybbuk may possess you. (It supposedly lives beneath the fingernails). They can be imprisoned in a โ€œdybbuk boxโ€.”

A fellow researcher/writer brought to my attention ibbur hashanah. “It appears that *โ€˜Ibbur hashana,โ€™* the extension by one month of the Hebrew year, which would mean pushing off the holidays in the month of Nissan (namely Pesach/Passover), would constitute โ€˜first aidโ€™ for the Israeli society. Ibbur Hashanah, the Year of the Possessing spirits/Demons…..& MalkiTZADEK the Maggid to lead them through the Strange Fire….๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ”.

The Ibbur or impregnating spirit which is the opposite of a dybbuk. Year of the impregnating spirits which is mentioned in my book. The ibbur will bring about THE dybbuk. And yes, Malki is the one to do it. Guarantee.

So let me recap a few things to what is presently going on. This new virus from the burning of this red heifer will be in the forms of dybbuks akin to the locusts. The only way to get rid of these unclean spirits according to these Edomite Jews, will be through the waters of purification from these ashes that will be burnt. Everything here is connected. Even the Turkish believe in Dybbuks aka Jinn.

If the red heifer is sacrificed in the future then it is an abomination in the eyes of God. A stench. You cannot replace a red heifer for Jesus. If my theory is correct (and I may be wrong) then the conception of this sacrifical heifer was at the time Saturn (who represents Satan was released from the abyss via Revelation 20. This correlates with what Paul tells us about the restrainer unbinding Satan. If this is all true, this heifer is a sacrifical embodiment of Saturn. I go over all this in my book. What comes next after this heifer is sacrificed and burnt on the Mount if Olives? All hell breaks loose. I believe this is when the Antichrist (a literal man) will make himself known and you will only know this through discernment through the Holy Spirit and true revelation. I compare Satan inhabiting a man like Judas was and this cleaving (or dybbuk) happens around 12/20-22/20. Hence the HADIBBUK HAGADOL or Saturn/Jupiter’s Great Conjunction. What does this really mean? Jesus is returning soon and Satan has but a short time to decieve the nations.

Things are moving fast. I am positive that this red heifer will be burnt between September and April of next year. Both scenarios work for my theory. This Abomination will be a stench in the nostrils of GOD. Come quickly LORD Jesus.

Daniel 12:10 is not about the red heifer, not unless you are inverting scripture


In my book The Temple, The Abomination and The Holy Place I mention that I believe it is possible that the “Abomination of Desolation standing in the Holy Place” that Jesus mentions in Matthew 25, could in fact be the burning of the red heifer on the Mount of Olives. Daniel mentions 3 abominations and I believe they are all different.

In my book I mention that the abomination of Daniel 12:11 is in fact referencing the red heifer. What is funny, is that Jews presently believe Daniel 12:10 is in fact referring to the 10th red heifer sacrifice that they are all waiting for. They refer to Isaiah being washed white as snow talking about the red heifer in the end days. Daniel 12 is talking about a future time and you can see this just by looking at verse 9. “For the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end”. Then it goes on to tell us that many shall be purified and made white and tried. Then the abomination comes.

I believe Satan has and will continue to distort scripture and invert the Word of GOD to fulfill his skewed eschatology. If Jews believe that verse 10 is referring to the red heifer being burnt and sprinkling the waters to be made white as snow, why wouldn’t the red heifer be the first candidate to look at as being the abomination in the next verse? This is just one of many connections I have made with this abomination being the red heifer

As Christians, we know that Jesus fulfilled this scripture in Isaiah with His blood on the tree being poured out as a sacrifice for our sins. He is the Lamb of our Passover. He covers a multitude of sins, not some genetically modified red heifer. We know that Matthew 28:3 which talks about Jesus’ resurrection, that His raiment was white as snow. This parallels Daniel 7:9 which tells us the Ancient of Days whose garment was white as snow and Revelation 1:14 whose hairs were white as snow. The red heifer won’t wash anyway any ones sins.

More on gevurah of the parah adumah

This comes from Alexander Poltarak from The Times of Israel blog. I had posted the list of these 5 judgements before so I’m not sure if they are his. But his entire blog is interesting in a quantum view kind of way. The article is The Paradox of the Red Heifer. (

“Parah adumah is a red heifer. Everything about it bespeaks gevurah โ€“ strict judgment. โ€œTake for you a perfectly red unblemished cow, upon which no yoke was laid.โ€

  1. The word parah (heifer) is etymologically related to the word pur โ€“ force. The word gevurah also means force. Thus parah-heifer โ€“ signifies gevurah-force (or judgment).
  2. The color red also represents judgment, i.e., gevurah.
  3. โ€œPerfectly redโ€ represent severe unmitigated judgment.
  4. โ€œUnblemishedโ€ means perfect, which is also a manifestation of judgment โ€“ we judge it if it is perfect enough to qualify as a parah adumah.
  5. โ€œUpon which no yoke was laidโ€ โ€“ a further limitation connoting judgment-gevurah.

Reading this verse on Shabbos, I thought that these five qualifications of parah adumah must represent five states of gevurah. I was happy to find support for this proposition later in the Kitvey Arizal, where Rabbi Chaim Vital states:

Know that the five final forms of the letters signify the five states of gevurah. Their combined numerical value is 280, and when we add 5 for the five letters themselves, we have [285], the numerical value of] โ€œheifer.โ€

We see that Parah Adumah is an embodiment of gevurah in its full measure. Burning it to ashes further contributes to the aspect of gevurah, because fire represents gevurah as well. So ashes of parah adumah represent gevura2โ€“ judgment squared. Then we mix the ashes of parah adumah with maim chayim โ€“ the living waters obtained from a live stream. Water, of course, represents chesed (kindness). Maim chayim represents chesed2 โ€“ kindness squared. Alternatively, we can say that using hyssop, which is green in color, which also signifies chesed, makes chesed2. Mixing these two diametrically opposite ingredients โ€“ ashes of parah adumah representing gevurah and maim chayim representing chesed โ€“ create a contradictory construct that represents the paradox of ratzo vashov (see my essay On the Nature of Time and the Age of the Universe). Sprinkling this mixture on a person who is in a state of tumah acts as spiritual defibrillation โ€“ it puts his body in touch with the supernal rhythm of ratzo vashov, which restarts the proper rhythm of the personโ€™s body synchronizing it with the rhythm of the soul. This, it seems to me, is the secret of parah adumah.”

Jupiter. The lord of the flies.

It will be 2 years since the false sign of Jupiter being birthed on 9/23/17. Now almost to the day we will see a inverted sacrifical blessing to their god Jupiter on September 27th. The 70 nations, principalites, bulls, Sanhedrin, leaders, whatever you want to call them are NOT doing GOD a service. They are doing a ritual to invoke Jupiter once again.

I went over all of this so much in my book “Their god is Jupiter” that I’ve exhausted myself from talking about it. In a few words, the spirit behind Jupiter was in fact birthed or manifested after 9/23/17. We saw the rise of AI after this happened and then the crazy started coming out in people. Go c Heck for yourself, I documented all of it. If these people realized that they were invoking a principality that has came to wreak terror, they would’ve never done it. Instead, they did it all in the name of Jesus. Little did they know, the spirit that provoked them to do these things was the false psuedo Gnostic Jesus, Jupiter Serapis.

Do you think they would even repent of promoting this Jupiter nonsense as something Holy if they knew Jupiter was Belzebub, the expeller and lord of flies. Do you think they would repent today if they knew that at the time they were only conjouring up this ancient spirit that would need to be “birthed” in order to bring a sacrifical system back into a world that rejected Jesus’ once avid for all sacrifice? No. They wouldn’t. They are liars and decievers that are no better than the occultist.

Proof Jupiter is the expeller of flies. Belzebub.

A new movie (not really new, 2017) has come out called Belzebuth. The film is about a Detective investigating the deaths of young children at the border. Belzebuth is said to be associated with Belzebub (belzevuv) or the lord of the flies (insects). Others believe Belzebuth is associated with Belzeboath, the lord of hosts. Belzeboath is associated to Baalshamin who was worshipped in Syria (Palmyra). Did you know that Jupiter was called the expeller of flies? Now you do.

As far as the Sept 27th sacrifice Mount of Olives connection to Jupiter goes. This is needed for next year’s heifer sacrifice. Everything is inverted. We are literally in the spiritial upside down being manifested in this physical world. Remember, both Noah and Abrams Sacrifice was intended so they could obtain their blessing from GOD. These Edomite Jews, who worship this god of forces, have in fact made that Ba’alberith (lord of covenant) with the same Baal (lord) that they made covenant with under that oak tree in Shechem in Joshuas time. This sacrifice is a renewal to this deity at Shechem, and scholars say it was Belzebub. The Ba’alberith (lord of the covenant)was intended to be with the lord of the flies. This covenant is a death covenant and in order for the red heifer sacrifice to happen anytime after Sept1st, 2020, they need these demonic forces to be working overtime. I suspect everything will be intensified in the spirititual realm after 9/27/19.

Venus, the Sun and a Red Heifer

I was looking at a site on the Red Heifer bridge that was leading to the Mount of Olives and this site believed that it led right to Dominus Flevit, the place where some believe the Red Heifer was sacrificed. I cannot for sure say that this was the exact site or it was just above this area at Pater Noster. Either way, both of these Roman Catholic churches are in the vicinity of where Jesus was crucified and the red heifer was burnt. Here is an excerpt from the site.

Sunrise on Passover shines into the Holy of Holies

The yellow arrow marks the location of the Holy of Holies in my theory

This picture of the sunrise on the Mount of Olives was taken on a very special the day before Passover in April 08, 2009. It is called the festival of Birkat HaChama and is celebrated once in a 28 year cycle. The festival is the blessing of the sun. It is noted that this is the day when the sun returns to the position it occupied when it was created at the beginning of the fourth day of creation.

Because I was able to find this picture ofย  that sun rise on Passover 2009 then I am going to use it as my example. I have placed a yellow arrow on the picture (above) to indicate where the Holy of Holies would have been located in my theory, deep below the Temple Mount surface. The surface of the Temple Mount was much lower 2000 years ago than it is today.ย  As you can see the sun would have shown directly into the Holy of Holies with the Temple at this location. ย It would not shine into the Holy of Holies of any of the other Temple theories on this Passover day.

SunCalc, is a great program. With it the sunrise on any given day can be calculated.ย  I have it set to Passover April 8, 2009 as my example.ย The yellow line on the right shows the angle of the sun. It crosses the summit of the Mount of Olive at the right place between the 7 arches hotel and Pater Noster Church in the olive grove. The longitude and latitude for where the sun rises on the mount of Olives onย  Passover was given to me by a man studying astronomy that contacted me about this. ย He said the sun would ย rise directly east of the Temple and shine into the Holy of Holies on Passover morning. ย ย,35.2352,15/2009.04.08/20:12ย (

Now I started thinking about her theory and the position of the Sun coming over the Mount of Olives. We know that these occultists are in fact Sun worshipers are the position of the Sun on certain days matters. So I went to the above Suncal site and looked up the birth of the red heifer and when it could possibly be burnt when it turns 2 years old.

aug 28 2018 sunrise.jpg

sept 1 2020 sunrise.jpg

As you can see, both of these dates has the Sunrise coming over the Mount of Olives from the East in between Pater Noster and Dominus Flevit. This was the same scenario (minus the festival of Birkat HaChama) that the above mentioned site was talking about. Now in 2020, at this time the Sun is in the constellation Leo and it doesn’t move into Virgo until September 16th and leaves on October 30th. If they burn the red heifer after its 2nd birthday then they will have until the 16th to do it why it is in Leo i.e. the Lion King. If they decide to wait it will be in Virgo until October 30th which is the day before Halloween, the 31st, which happens to be a full Moon. Why does any of this matter? Well to us it doesn’t because we don’t actually care about astrology which is divination. But to them it matters because they believe there is occult powers in doing events according to the stars.

I want to mention this new age site that claims to be Christian I guess. It is a little confusing, being that they believe in a lot of Christian doctrines but lean very heavly towards new age beliefs. This is mentioning the red heifer and virgo. “10 is a number of completeness, divine law and order. The 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet is YOD. YOD’s numeric value is 10. Yod is the smallest of the Hebrew alphabet, the sacred tetragrammon or hieroglyphic name of God is YHWH – started with the YOD.

The YOD is assigned to the Astrological sign of VIRGO, the sign of the 6th month. Virgo speaks of introspection, examining the heart, preparing, setting the house in order. This is what Elul, the 6th month is all about.ย We see the prophetic message in the soon coming 10th red heifer and her announcement is, it will be a time of global awakening to the need to set things straight. It is a time of accountability on every level.ย In the future, the 10th red heifer will most likely be announced or sacrificed while the Sun is in Virgo.

On a metaphysical level the 10th red heifer coincides with the Solar Plexus, the stomach, because of Virgo assignment. As food is processed in the stomach, so must the red heifer be figuratively prepared and processed in Virgo. The Solar plexus is part of the base chakra system or base energies of the beastly/animalistic nature in humans. It represents the lower nature that can never be satisfied and appears to need constant purification. It also represents a time of digesting and processing life; finding the Love bridge of the heart that transports us from the lower frequencies to the higher frequencies. This is the meaning of burning the red heifer within,ย “I will give you beauty for ashes.” (

Notice that they mention that they believe the red heifer will either be born while the Sun is in Virgo? Well it was born on August 28th, 2018 and was announced on September 3rd. The Sun was in Leo actually heading to Virgo. So they got that prediction wrong if this red heifer is THE heifer. Now there is a great chance that it will be burnt while it is in Virgo though. And why Virgo? Because this is the same “virgin” that gave birth to what a lot of Christians were claiming as the “rapture” with the 9/23/17 sign of Jupiter. I knew years before that this was a deception and once there was no “rapture” of the church, these false teachers had to back pedal on what they were claiming. I predicted a spiritual birth of something demonic andย  we saw the rise of AI directly after that. A year and few weeks later we saw the Paradise event that coincided with all of this. I have documented all of this here on my blog and in my book “Their god is Jupiter”. So with that said, Virgo would be the time to have another demonic spiritual birthing for the ashes of this red heifer.

As I have said in my book, I believe these ashes will allow something demonic to rise (spiritually speaking) and the rise of the literal Antichrist (I believe 9/23 was the rise of this antichrist spirit) may be coming next. What is funny, is that this new age christian site believes this actually. “Even more mysterious is the power of the red heifer ashes to unleash warfare. Once the jar is opened and ceremonially mixed with the other elements during the chanting of certain holy names by the priest; it will be like letting a jinn out of an ancient bottle. It will cause a major shift in the atmosphere. Once it is done, it can not be undone. We will explain more in the next blog how this magical potion will do it. (

From a metaphysical or esoteric standpoint, the Red Heifer symbolized the based energies and drives of humanity that must be sacrificed and consumed in order for them to ascend to a state of purity and innocence consciousness.ย The fire comes to transmute what appears as negative into positive, thus, allowing expression and balance of all 7 colors within mankind. He then becomes the Rainbow Man, or expresses the Covenant of Life, no longer contaminated by death.. The Red Heifer was given to cleanse from contamination of Death or carnal mindedness. The use of scarlet is yet pointing to the base chakra. It also invokes the spirit realm or unseen realm where a host of entities reside in the 4th dimension. The high priest wore scarlet on Yom Kippur, the Pope wears scarlet, the Great Whore of Revelation wears scarlet. Red not only excite the spirit realm, it also excite humans on an unconscious level.

Remember, we talked about intent of the heart when using ancient rituals or any ritual. Spiritual truth, realities and rituals that the Creator gives can be perverted by humans. The ancient red heifer ritual that brought literal cleansing as a soap in the desert and foreshadowed a much deeper cleansing of the human soul, will soon become perverted; when it is re-instituted. The people occupying Palestine called Israel have hi-jacked the name Israel and the promises made to a Semitic group of people. They have been successful at deceiving the whole world, and sadly many actually do believe their own deception. Therefore, they will fulfill prophecy that will bring about the destruction of Jerusalem and much of Israel.

When the ancient jar of the first red heifer ashes are opened and mixed with the 10th red heifer ashes it will not be as it was 3500 years ago. This red heifer has been raised in an environment of hatred, greed and all the base emotions.ย The invocation to the spirit realm from impure hearts will unleash a spirit of war and murder as the world has not seen.ย In the Book of Revelation chapter 6 this is described as the Red Horse of the Apocalypse that comes to take Peace from the earth and he has a huge sword. It will be like a jinn let out of a bottle. Millions will die in a very short period of time.ย An ancient ritual once used for 1500 years to purify from contamination by death shall cause death and contamination to many. (

Miriams (divine feminine) Living (stale) Waters and the Ashes (judgement) of the Parah Adumah (golden calf)

I just wanted to share these thoughts by some rabbis when it comes to the burning of the red heifer and the living waters when it is mixed. They liken the living waters to Miriam’s death some 38 years after the burning of the red heifer. After her death they received the living waters from the rock (or crag{{{pun intended, hidden in the crag) and we know that the rock represents Jesus giving us the Holy Spirit, the living waters. Now in their Kabbalistic demented inverted mindset, they see Miriam as a sort of divine feminine type of their Shekinah which is nothing more than a Kundalini spirit. It made me think about what these living waters will represent in their mind and I think they believe it will be represented as Miriam giving them life through the ashes of the red heifer. In my book I mention that the sprinkling of these ashes will be more like the drinking of the white ash (MZKT) of the golden calf and death following shortly after. I believe the spiritual connotations of this whole thing is a disaster for everyone. In an inverted and backwords world like the one we live in, evrything is twisted. To them, Miriam is a goddess representing their shekinah. She is a feminist to the woman representing modern feminism. And her death was their atonement as will be the red heifers burning their purification.


“The โ€œliving watersโ€ย ย representย ย the word of Hashem and His life giving powers. โ€œThey have forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living water,โ€ Jeremiah 17: 13) . It further describesย ย life and cleansing. Yet more dramatically water is adaptable. It transformโ€™s itself into the vessel that contains it. This was a characteristic that truly describes the character of Miriam the sister of Moshe.ย ย Miriam whose name includes the word Yam or oceans. This is the same living waters that were used to return empowerment to the man encountering his own mortality with the red heifer…Miriam like the clear pure waters refreshed the broken souls and gave them back life and hope. Miriam represented the quenching hope filled waters of redemption. Our sages have taught that the children of Israel were afforded three gifts that were given to them in the wilderness in the merit of their leaders. The Divine clouds of Glory that surrounded and protected the people were given in the merit of Aaron. The manna from Heaven was given because of Moshe and the โ€œwaters of the wellโ€ were gifted due to Miriam. Miriam represented hope in the midst of adversity.” (

Parshat Chukath –ย ื‘ืžื“ื‘ืจ ืคืจืง-ื›ย – we learn from Rashi that the demise of the prophetess Miriam was juxtaposed to the chapter of the Red Heifer to teach us that both of these atone.

The Pasuk says:

Why was Miriam’s death juxtaposed to the Red Heifer? To teach us that just as sacrifices atone (alternate reading: just as the Red Heifer atones) so too does the demise of the righteous atone.

Rashi is quoting the Gemara inย Mo’ed Katan 28aย – which has theย alternate reading‘s text.

Tosafos there explains –ย ืžื” ืคืจื” ืื“ื•ืžื” ืžื›ืคืจืชย ืคื™ืจื•ืฉ ืขืœ ืžืขืฉื” ื”ืขื’ืœ ื•ื›ื“ืืžืจื™ื ืŸ ื‘ืžื“ืจืฉ ืžืฉืœ ืœื‘ืŸ ื”ืฉืคื—ื” ืฉื˜ื™ื ืฃ ืคืœื˜ื™ืจื™ืŸ ืฉืœ ืžืœืš – that the Red Heifer atones for the sin of the Golden Calf, as per the Medrash that the maidservant (Heifer) is expected to clean up her child’s (Calf’s) mess in the palace.

The ืฉืคืชื™ ื—ื›ืžื™ื elaborates:

ืœ)ย ืคื™ืจื•ืฉ ื“ืื™ืŸ ื›ืืŸ ืžืงื•ืžื• ืฉื”ืจื™ ื‘ืฉื ื” ืจืืฉื•ื ื” ืœื™ืฆื™ืืช ืžืฆืจื™ื ืขืฉื• ื”ืขื’ืœ ื•ื‘ืฉื ื” ืฉื ื™ื™ื” ืฉืจืคื• ืคืจื” ืื“ื•ืžื” ื•ืžื™ืชืช ืžืจื™ื ื”ื™ืชื” ื‘ืกื•ืฃ ืž’ ืฉื ื” ืœื™ืฆื™ืืช ืžืฆืจื™ื:โ€

That is: The first RedHeifer was done soon after the Mishkan was erected – it should be in the Chumash around Tazria-Metzora. Miriam’s demise happened 38 years later; the Red Heifer is put here – some 38 years after it happened – to teach us something.

He continues:

ืž)ย ื•ืื ืชืืžืจ ื•ื›ื™ ืงืจื‘ืŸ ื”ื™ืชื” ื”ืคืจื” ืื“ื•ืžื” ื•ื”ืœื ืœื ื”ื™ื• ืžืงืจื™ื‘ื™ืŸ ืžืžื ื” ื›ืœื•ื. ื•ื™ืฉ ืœื•ืžืจ ืœืคื™ ื“ื‘ืจ ืื—ืจ ืฉืคื™ืจืฉ”ื™ ืœืขื™ืœ ืฉืงืจืื” ื”ื›ืชื•ื‘ ื—ื˜ืืช ืœื•ืžืจ ืฉื”ื™ื ื›ืงื“ืฉื™ื ืœื™ืืกืจ ื‘ื”ื ืื” ืฉืžืข ืžื™ื ื” ืฉื”ื™ื ื›ืงืจื‘ืŸ: โ€

That is: Even though the Red Heifer was not a real sacrifice, (it was done outside the Temple and no part of it was brought on the altar), Rashi already explained that it has some of the laws of a sacrifice, as it’s called a ื—ึทื˜ึธึผืืช (ibid 19:9) ื•ืœืคื™ ื”ืœื›ื•ืชื™ื• ืงืจืื” ื”ื›ืชื•ื‘ ื—ื˜ืืช, ืœื•ืžืจ ืฉื”ื™ื ื›ืงื“ืฉื™ื ืœื”ืืกืจ ื‘ื”ื ืื” – in that one is forbidden to derive personal benefit from it, [besides for its stated purpose.

That is: Miriam’s demise was juxtaposed to the Red Heifer, and not to a regular sacrifice, to highlight that neither are real sacrifices, yet they both atone. (


This excerpt comes from:

“There has never been a generation like that of Moses, Miriam and Aaron, says the Zohar. Their combined presence, awesome as it was for the โ€œwilderness generation,โ€ made the idea of their deaths that much more traumatic. The depth of this loss is foreshadowed in Chukat, which begins with the mysterious ritual of the Red Heifer.ย The Zohar explains that this rite, while providing a means of purification from contact with the dead, demonstrates the eternal principle that for the community to receive atonement the most precious souls must pay the price.

Of the three siblings, Miriam was the first to go. The Zohar connects her death to the Red Heifer: โ€œJust as judgment was executed on this cow to purify the unclean, so was judgment passed on Miriam for the purification of the world.โ€ Both Miriam and the heifer are held blameless, it is a judgment on the world in general. However, the link established between Miriam and the Red Heifer paves the way for her brothersโ€™ deaths.ย After Miriam dies, and the well that supplied Israel with water in her merit dries up, the people turn on her brothers. But instead of calling the Israelites to account and supporting Moses, as in the past, God does something unexpected: He appears to switch sides. A Midrash portrays Him rebuking the brothers: โ€œMy children are dying of thirst while you sit and mournโ€ for Miriam.”

This excerpt comes from:

“Miriam’s death receives only a single sentence in the text. After the people arrive in the Zin Desert, we are told that “Miriam died there and she was buried there” (Num. 20:1). The text is silent as to who will carry her memory forward; does she have children who will wear her garments in her stead? In the two stories that expressly speak of Miriam, she is seeking power for herself. At the splitting of the sea, she acts in a manner parallel to Moses. Miriam sings with the women as Moses sings with the men (Ex. 15:21). Later, Miriam is exiled with leprosy because she compares herself to Moses once again, claiming for herself the title of a prophet like Moses (Num. 12:3). Did Miriam, the woman who believed herself to be the equal of a man, die alone?

The Midrash responds to the problem of Miriam’s lonely death by writing for her a family. She is a mother, married to Caleb, the good spy who did not speak negatively of Israel, with a sister-wife, Batyah, Pharaoh’s daughter who saved baby Moses from the Nile (Steinmetz,ย “A Portrait of Miriam in Rabbinic Midrash“). In providing Miriam with an extraordinary family, the Midrash gives Miriam a peaceful resting place in our tradition, as a mother and a wife in Israel. However, in the Torah, there is no peaceful rest for Miriam. She is forgotten by the text and the people, but mourned by God. After her death, the Israelites’ water well dries up. When her life stops, so does the source of life. From the juxtaposition of Miriam’s death and the drying of the well, the Talmud learns that this well existed because of Miriam’s merits; it was her well (Tractite Sukkah 3:11). To restart it, God commands Moses and Aaron to speak to Miriam’s well, but instead they hit the well and are punished with an early death in the desert.

Does the violence forced upon her well echo the violence forced upon her identity? Was Miriam required to toe the line of womanhood, even as she prophesied for a God who has no gender? Are Aaron and Moses punished for causing violence to Miriam’s well and to her identity? Is God saying to Aaron and Moses, “She died in the desert and you dare to think that you will not perish here too? You are no greater then she was.” Her end was not peaceful, but neither was it quiet. Today, I return to Miriam’s proverbial ashes to exhume a feminist voice in our tradition even when, like the purpose of the red heifer, it is not discernable or apparent.”

This excerpt comes from:

“In our parasha, Miriam dies. Israel was provided water by the Rock in her merit, and at her death, the water (mayim) ceased. Within the name ofย ืžืจื™ื, Miriam, are the letters forย ืžื™ื, mayim/water.ย The Midrash Rabbah cites a principle from the Talmud calledย ืžื™ืชืชืŸ ืฉืœ ืฆื“ื™ืงื™ื ืžื›ืคืจืชย mitatan shel tzaddikim mekapparet, in relation to the death of Miriam,

ื™ื‘ ืืดืจ ืื‘ื ื‘ืจ ืื‘ื™ื ื ืžืคื ื™ ืžื” ื ืกืžื›ื” ืคืจืฉืช ืžื™ืชืช ืžืจื™ื ืœืืคืจ ืคืจื” ืืœื ืžืœืžื“ ืฉื›ืฉื ืฉืืคืจ ื”ืคืจื” ืžื›ืคืจ ื›ืš ืžื™ืชืช ื”ืฆื“ื™ืงื™ื ืžื›ืคืจืช
ืžื“ืจืฉ ืจื‘ื” ื•ื™ืงืจื ืคืจืฉื” ื› ืกื™ืžืŸ ื™ื‘

โ€œR. Abba b. Abina enquired: For what reason was the section recording the death of Miriam placed in close proximity to that dealing with the ashes of the Red Heifer? Simply this, to teach that as the ashes of the Heifer effect atonement, so the death of the righteous effects atonement.โ€
