Trying To Figure Out This Volcano

I’ve been trying really hard and I just can’t figure out what this Volcano episode is trying to communicate.

The moshiach blogosphere is ripe with opinions, the two most prominent are (1) this is measure for measure to Britain for striking Jerusalem from Israel or (2) an ominous warning for the Jews in America that they can’t take for granted the opportunity to get to E”Y when and if they need to.

In my humble opinion, “this and this” are likely true, but the first is the message for the gentiles, and the second for the Jews.

The implications are  simple – the Gentiles and the Jewish people must repent.

How?  Simple – “Don’t do to others what you don’t want them to do to you.” –  (R. Akiva)

If we do this, divine guidance and protection is sure to follow.

    I thought it was pretty obvious from the start –

  3. Neviah says:

    The volcano, about 75 miles (120 kilometers) east of Reykjavik, erupted March 20 after almost 200 years of silence. That is on Shabbos PArshas Vayikra.

    The second eruption happened on 14 April, Rosh Chodesh Iyar.

    The flights resumed on Yom HaAtzma’ut, Israeli Independence Day.
