Ein Yaakov/ עין יעקב - ר' רוזנפלד

Ein Yaakov – Lesson 106a – Bava Basra – Page 121

The twelve sons of Yaakov Aveinu: When Eretz Yisrael will be re-allocated, every Jew will have part valley and part mountain, gardens, fields, and all will have equal. But the land will be divided into 13 parts instead of 12 as the original division – the thirteenth allotment will be for Moshiach.

The Kohen Gadol must be wealthier than any other kohen.

At the time of Yehoshua, the tribe of Levi was not given a portion of the Land, while Ephraim and Menasheh, the sons of Yosef HaTzadik, were considered one tribe each. Why? Because Yosef received the bochorah – the firstborn’s birthright – which is more than the others.

When Mashiach comes, the tribe of Levi will be given a portion because Ephraim and Menashe will be combined to become Yosef. Why? Yosef was the opposing force to Esav. Yosef is the flame, Esav the straw. But after Esav is vanquished, Yosef will no longer need that extra power and so he will be equal with his brothers.
The yud gimmel midos of Hashem (the thirteen qualities of Hashem) correspond to the 13 parts of Israel.
Moshiach will succeed through tefila (prayer).

35:00 Rochel gave “signs” (secret codes) to Leah. The kindness of her self-sacrifice – to give away her rights to marry the tzadik – gave her firstborn (Yosef) the merit to be considered Yaakov Aveinu’s firstborn. That’s how Yosef was considered the firstborn.

40:00 – Modest dress for Jewish women.

The two Adars correspond to Yosef HaTzadik.
