MOSHIACH’S WEDDING

By the Rebbe marrying the Rebbetzin the Rebbe officially joined the “Royal Family” thereby setting the stage for him to officially take over the leadership of Lubavitch. This was the beginning of the Dor HaShvii, which its entire goal is to bring Moshiach.

Dear Reader sh’yichyeh

This Sunday, Yud Daled Kislev, is the 85th wedding anniversary of the Rebbe and Rebbetzin. It is also sixty years since the Rebbe explained the deep significance of this day. During that (surprise) Farbrengen sixty years ago, the Rebbe said that, “This day connected me with the Chassidim and the Chassidim to me.”

I would like to share some thoughts that the Rebbe spoke about in the winter of 5752, that connect to 14 Kislev:

1) The engagement of the Rebbe to the Rebbetzin lasted for five years. One of the reasons for this long engagement was that the Frierdike Rebbe did not have money to make the wedding. When he obtained the money, he made a “Royal Wedding” in Warsaw, Poland.

The question begs to be asked: Why did the Frierdike Rebbe insist on spending large sums on the wedding? Would it not have sufficed with a smaller scale wedding?

In the Sicha of Chayei Sara 5752, the Rebbe addressed this question with regard to the wedding of Yitzchak and Rivka. The Torah tells us (B’Reishis 24:10) that Avraham gave up all his money for the wedding of Yitzchak and Rivka. Why did he do that?

The Rebbe explains that the wedding of Yitzchak to Rivka was not a regular wedding. It represented the continuation of Klal Yisroel and the process of bringing Moshiach. This was the essence of Avraham Avinu, and he would not hold anything back from that goal. 

The same is true for the wedding of the Rebbe. By the Rebbe marrying the Rebbetzin the Rebbe officially joined the “Royal Family” thereby setting the stage for him to officially take over the leadership of Lubavitch. This was the beginning of the Dor HaShvii, which its entire goal is to bring Moshiach. 

In the words of the Rebbe himself, in his first Maamer: “It is this that is demanded of each and every one of us of the seventh generation –  – and “all those that are seventh are cherished”: Although the fact that we are in the seventh generation is not the result of our own choosing and our own service, and indeed in certain ways perhaps contrary to our will, nevertheless ‘all those who are seventh are cherished.’ We are now very near the approaching footsteps of Moshiach, indeed, we are at the conclusion of this period, and our spiritual task is to complete the process of drawing down the Sh’china –  – moreover, the essence of the Sh’china –  – within specifically our lowly world.”

2) The wedding took place in the year 1929. The Rebbe explains (Sicha VaYishlach 5752 footnote 110) that if you “expand” the letter “ט” (which is the numerical value of 9), you will get the word “פרצת” (burst out) which is the theme of the Rebbe’s leadership ופרצת – Spreading the word of Hashem to all corners of the earth – through his Shluchim – thereby preparing the whole world for Moshiach.

Let us prepare for this special day by strengthening our connection to the Rebbe. The Rebbe tells us that even in a time when one does not see the Rebbe, one can still connect to him. In his words (HaYom Yom 24 Sivan): “You ask how can you be bound (m’kushar) to me when I do not know you personally… The true bond is created by studying Torah. When you study my maamarim, read the sichos and associate with those dear to me – the chassidic community and the T’mimim – in their studies and farbrengens, and you fulfill my request regarding saying T’hillim and observing Torah-study times – in this is the bond.” 

May we very soon all dance by the Royal Wedding of Hashem and B’nei Yisroel and the Rebbe will be Mesader Kiddushin!
