Vayikra: Chapter 34

Four times a year


We learn that four times a year, judgments stir; if people repent, God causes the judgments to return to their places, but if they do not the voice is stopped and the judgments are fulfilled. Rabbi Yisa had said that God swore an oath not to enter the celestial Jerusalem until the children of Yisrael enter the terrestrial Jerusalem, and until that time there will be anger in the world.
