Trump teases superhero-themed announcement

Former US president Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he would make a “major announcement” the following day. He accompanied the message with a video depicting himself as a cartoon superhero.

“America needs a superhero,” Trump said in a video posted to his social media platform, Truth Social. The message was followed with a likeness of Trump emerging from his Trump Tower property in New York, tearing his suit jacket open to reveal a superhero costume underneath.

“I will be making a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT tomorrow,” Trump wrote above the video.

It is unclear what Trump plans on announcing. The former president last teased a “very big announcement” in early November, after which he declared his candidacy in the 2024 presidential election.

Throughout his presidency, Trump often directed media attention to major policy decisions by first promising “big news” or “major announcements.”

Since leaving the White House last year following a bitterly-contested election loss to Joe Biden, Trump has remained Republican voters’ candidate of choice in most polls. However, a USA Today survey this week found that GOP voters prefer Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by a 23 point margin.

Jewish History

Ezra’s Address (347 BCE)

Ezra, head of the Sanhedrin and the leader of the Jewish people at the time of the building of the Second Temple, made an historic address to a three-day assemblage of Jews in Jerusalem, exhorting them to adhere to the teachings of the Torah and to dissolve their interfaith marriages (the Jewish people were on the verge of complete assimilation at the time, following their 70-year exile in Babylonia).

Laws and Customs
“Rosh Hashanah of Chassidism”
The Rosh Hashanah (“new year”) of Chassidism, marking the liberation of Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi and the subsequent blossoming of Chabad Chassidism, is celebrated for two days, Kislev 19-20. (The Rebbe was released from prison on the 19th, but his full freedom was only obtained late in the evening — Kislev 20 on the Jewish Calendar.) The two days are celebrated with farbrengens (Chassidic gatherings) and an increased commitment to the ways and teachings of Chassidism.

Jewish History
Alexander in Jerusalem (313 BCE)
On Kislev 21 of the year 3448 from creation (313 BCE), there occurred the historic meeting between Shimon HaTzaddik and Alexander (‘the Great”) of Macedonia. (Source: Megillat Taanit)

The Samarians, bitter enemies of the Jews, had convinced Alexander that the Jews’ refusal to place his image in their Temple was a sign of rebellion against his sovereignty, and that the Holy Temple should be destroyed.

The Kohen Gadol (“High Priest”) at the time was Shimon HaTzaddik, the last of the “Men of the Great Assembly” who rebuilt the Holy Temple and revitalized Judaism under Ezra.

On the 21st of Kislev Alexander marched on Jerusalem at the head of his army; Shimon, garbed in the vestments of the High Priest and accompanied with a delegation of Jewish dignitaries, went forth to greet him.

The two groups walked towards each other all night; at the crack of dawn they met.

As Alexander beheld the visage of the High Priest, he dismounted his horse and bowed respectfully; to his men he explained that he often had visions of a similar-looking man leading him into battle.

Shimon HaTzaddik brought the emperor to the Holy Temple and explained that Judaism prohibits the display of any graven image; he offered to name all the male children born to priests that year “Alexander” as a demonstration of loyalty to the emperor (which is how “Alexander” became a common Jewish name).

The Samarians plot was rebuffed, and Kislev 21 was declared a holiday.

The Tribulation is commencing..

Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
