On the Jewish calendar:
Seminar on Tu B & # 39; shvat on the 15th day of the Hebrew month Shvat, starting at sunset the same day. Tu B & # 39; Shvat is known as the New Year of the Tree, one of four "New Years" mentioned in Mishnah.
Rabbi Mordechai Genut discussed the lunar eclipse in his book Davar B & # 39; ito a guide to the calendar based on esoteric Jewish sources.
"A lunar eclipse of the month Shevat is a sign of the rise of the aspect of your (they) in the world," Rabbi told Genut Breaking Israel News . "This eclipse will rule over America, but for Israel it will bring chesed (love)."
Rabbi Genut describes specifically how this judgment will be expressed.
Dom expressed ]
"There will be a marked increase in earthquakes and volcanoes, even more than we have seen in the past year," said Rabbi Genuth. "Just as the eclipse is a conflict between the sun and the moon to steer over the sky, there will be a similar conflict on earth. This will begin once the governments are in balance. Some governments that seem powerful right now will fall and others will rise in their place. "
Rabbi Genut bases this on a verse in Isaiah.
On that day, Hashem will punish the host of heaven in heaven and the kings of the earth on earth. Isaiah 24:21
Jewish interpretation of solar and lunar eclipses:
Judaism has a tradition of interpreting sun and lunar eclipses. In his discussion on eclipses the Talmud (Sukkot 29a) specifically described solar eclipses as a bad omen for the nations. In fact, the full solar eclipse transversing the continental United States in August 2018 began the most devastating hurricane season in US history.
The same source in the Talmud specifies that moon eclipses are a bad omen for Israel, because Israel is spiritually represented by the moon and the Hebrew calendar is determined by the lunar cycles. If the moon's eclipse seems red, as the coming eclipse will be, Talmud says this is an omen that big wars come to the world.
 At the end of this section describing the omen that exists in eclipses, the spokesman states a disclaimer: "When Israel does God's will, they have nothing to fear from all this, "and refers to the prophet Jeremiah as a source. 19659029] Thus, Hashem said: Do not learn to walk in the nations, and do not be upset by porters in heaven; Let the nations be terrified by them! Jeremiah 10: 2
Rabbi Yosef Berger applied this teaching in the Talmud to the current geopolitical situation.
"It's not that the bad judgment symbolized by the lunar eclipse just disappears" Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News . "It is only discouraged against our enemies. In this case, war and evil will fall on our enemies. By choosing to be our enemies, the Arab nations have taken the evil that might have come upon Israel."  "This is especially true when the lunar eclipse falls on Tu B & # 39; which, one day when only good can happen to Israel."
