Add the numbers 1, 9, 6 and 3 and we arrive at the total of 19. That fact jumped out at me and became an important factor which gave me an incentive to dig deeply into the relationship between COVID-19 and the year 1963.
A Personal Story
I refer to a previous Blog written on June 26 about my good South African friend Yisrael who is now out of ICU. After many prayers and TLC by his wife Pam, his family and his many relatives and friends including me, Yisrael appears to be recovering. But I just heard he still needs our Tefillahs and therefore I again ask that you keep Yisrael Ben Sherna in your prayers.
August 7 Through August 9, 1963
I have not seen Yisrael since the last time I visited South Africa about 7 years ago but I do remember that our birthdays were very close and I confirmed with Pam he was born on August 7. As I mentioned before, mine is August 9.
There was one news story that made global headlines during that time; the pre-mature birth of a new baby boy to JFK and his wife Jackie. I was on a family trip to visit close relatives who had moved from Minneapolis to Los Angeles. It was during our trip that this story was unfolding. At that time hourly news bulletins would update listeners on the baby’s progress and from the time of birth the ability of the baby to survive was highly questionable.
Shortly after birth, Kennedy developed symptoms of hyaline membrane disease (HMD), now called infant respiratory distress syndrome (IRDS). It was detected by breathing difficulties within minutes. Infantile respiratory distress syndrome (IRDS), also called respiratory distress syndrome of newborn, or increasingly surfactant deficiency disorder (SDD), is a syndrome in premature infants caused by developmental insufficiency of pulmonary surfactant production and structural immaturity in the lungs.
When the President arrived at the hospital, after being informed that Jackie had gone into labor, he saw his son in distress, and sent for a chaplain. The infant was quickly baptized with the name of Patrick after his grandfather Joseph Patrick Kennedy (1888–1969) and great-grandfather Patrick Joseph Kennedy (1858–1929), and was given the middle name of Bouvier after his mother’s maiden name.
Then early on the morning of August 9, news broke that the baby had passed away. The child was initially buried at Holyhood Cemetery in Brookline, Massachusetts, the president’s hometown. His body and that of a stillborn sister, whom Jacqueline Kennedy had named Arabella, were reinterred on December 5, 1963 alongside their father at Arlington National Cemetery, and later moved to their permanent graves in Section 45, Grid U-35.
August 28, 1963 – 19 Days Later
With the passing of John Lewis and CT Vivian, on the same day, this is what gave me the incentive to look more deeply at the significance of these two great Civil Rights leaders being taken from us in such a short time span.
And because the number of days from JFK and Jackie’s newborn son’s passing until that fateful day in the nation’s capital when the March On Washington took place amounted to 19 days that is very significant. The President was still alive to witness it and realized that indeed the time had come for the black minority population to gain the same rights that whites enjoyed.
It was not only the President but all Americans who suddenly were able to realize that the only correct thing to do was to pass legislation in the form of the Civil Rights Act that officially recognized the rights of blacks.
November 22, 1963 -86 Days Later
It would be difficult to find any American who was living at that time unaware of what that date represents. It was perhaps the most shocking event that I had been faced with up until then, and that included the films on the Holocaust.
That was because it was happening in front of my own eyes and it seemed not only the US and all Americans froze in their tracks and watched the ceremonies being carried live on all the major news stations. At 14 years old, it was hard for my mind to process the fact that only a few hours earlier I had seen the President giving a speech and suddenly he was gone, never to give another speech again.
The Kennedy Curse
The Kennedy curse refers to a series of premature deaths, accidents, and other calamities involving members of the American Kennedy family. The alleged curse has primarily struck the children and descendants of businessman Joseph P. Kennedy Sr., but it has also affected family friends, associates, and other relatives. Political assassinations and plane crashes have been the most common manifestations of the “curse”.
The two most recent incidents are as follows-
- August 1, 2019 – Saoirse Roisin Kennedy Hill, granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy, died of an accidental drug overdose at the Kennedy Compoundin Hyannis Port, Massachusetts on Cape Cod.
- April 2, 2020 – Maeve Kennedy McKean, granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy Sr., and Gideon McKean, her 8-year-old son, went missing during a canoe trip in the Chesapeake Bay.McKean’s body was found on April 6; Gideon’s body was found on April 8.
The 19 Year Hebrew Calendar Cycle – 2020 vs 1963
The Hebrew Calendar has a 19 year cycle in which there are 7 leap years in each cycle. I originally learned that every 19 years the Hebrew and English Calendar days are the same. But I soon discovered that in reality the 19 year cycle can result in a one day difference.
Applying this to the year 2020, and going back in three – 19 year intervals, we soon discover that for the first time since 1963, the English and Hebrew dates match. This is very interesting and therefore I have put together a summary of the abovementioned facts which tell a very interesting story.
Fact One – Lungs
The primary cause of death in victims of COVID 19 and baby Patrick Bouvier Kennedy is a problem which developed with the lungs.
Fact Two – The Number 19
Many facts are tied to the number 19 as listed above, and therefore the fact that this disease is commonly known by a name that includes this number is truly amazing.
Fact Three – The Number 86 And The Hebrew Word פה Which Means Mouth
There were 86 days from the time that John Lewis and Martin Luther King gave their speeches during the March On Washington and JFK’s Assassination.
From the time we are born, our age is expressed in the number of years that we have completed living. Therefore when saying Tehillim or Psalms, we would begin saying the 86th Chapter, when we turn 85. This is the Gematria equivalent of פה which means Mouth.
As has been stated before, it was a known fact that JFK’s father was not very helpful toward the Jews when he served as Ambassador to Great Britain during the time of the Nazi Regime. And that could very well have been the primary reason for the Kennedy Curse that continues to plague the Kennedy family even to this very day.
Fact Four – Today’s Loshen Hora Against Israel
Despite all the good that Israel has accomplished, there continues to be those enemies of the Jewish State that dwell throughout the world. Those enemies are also present within the walls of Congress to this very day and Congress is refusing to take the necessary action to deal with this problem.
Two of the four Squad members were banned from Israel and those are the two that are in trouble heading into their primaries.
Fact Five – US COVID- 19 Deaths reached 148,900 as of Shabbat And The Number 50
I wonder if many of those lives could have been saved had Congress taken the necessary steps to rid itself of that evil person who is quoted as saying “Some People Did Something”. Also, she referred to Benjamin Franklin appearing on the $100 Note and I have previously pointed out that he appeared on the $50 Note in an older series.
Taking the number of people who died in the 9/11 attacks which is being given as 2977 and multiply by 50 we arrive at the figure of 148,850.
I have discussed this factor of 50 many times in previous Blogs and intend doing so in future as well.
