“We already see the beginning of the activities of Melech HaMoshiach upon the Gentile nations … insofar as G-d Alm-ghty directs the hearts of the kings of the nations (“the heart of kings and ministers are in the hand of G-d”) to resolve and to proclaim together about the initiative of ‘they shall beat their swords into plowshares.’”

One of the questions the soul is asked in the next world, the Talmud states, is: “Have you eagerly awaited salvation?” The obvious concern for many Jews today is, how does one who does not feel that sense of yearning and desire for Moshiach develop these feelings?
When I learned the sicha of Tazria-Metzora 5751, the words “starting with the book of the Zohar,” caught my attention. It gave me the idea of compiling statements from the Zohar that have to do with Inyanei Moshiach and Geula. * The popular lecturer and author on the topic of Moshiach, Rabbi Chaim Sasson, tells us about his new book, Zohar HaGeula.
Rosh Chodesh Kislev reminds us of the shluchos to India, Rivka Holtzberg and Mira Scharf, may Hashem avenge their blood, who were murdered on this day. * Reminiscences from relatives, friends and tourists about Mira. She acted quietly, modestly, far from the spotlight; she was an exemplary Jewish mother and devoted wife, daughter, friend, and Chassida of the Rebbe MH”M. * May we immediately march forth, led by the shluchos, to the third Beis HaMikdash!
Avigdor Hameiri (1885-1970), a celebrated writer who was identified with the Leftist camp, became friendly with R’ Meir Blizinsky. As a result of this relationship, he had yechidus with the Rebbe and even began learning Tanya. However, when he finished learning chapter six, he wanted to stop learning since he began to feel the effect of Tanya in his life. * Presented for the upcoming Rosh HaShana L’Chassidus, the Chag HaGeula of the Baal HaTanya.
The fifth Rebbe, the Rebbe Rashab, had such a unique style of presentation that the most respected elder Chassidim of his time entitled him “the Rambam of Chassidus.” The Rebbe Rashab drew from many thousands of Chabad discourses by his predecessors and, based on them, explained the most profound concepts in clear terms, comprehensively and in an orderly progression of ideas.
He printed a special edition of the Tanya in pocket-size. He hoped to get a “yashar ko’ach” from the Rebbe for this, but he had to wait. * Presented as we approach the completion of the daily Tanya study schedule.
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.
We’re talking about a questionable “gesture” to the head of the PLO, a terrorist organization dedicated to the principle of murdering Jews – men, women, and children. At the end of this process, at least as far as the prime minister is concerned, there will be another expulsion r”l. The question now is whether we should wait until they start pounding on the doors with expulsion orders, or should we wake up and fulfill the Rebbe’s instructions to protest vigorously and save the Jewish People?
Every Jew, no matter what his status is as a Jew, how Jewish he thinks he is or even if he considers himself a Jew at all, is ultimately and completely bound to G-d – his G-d – the G-d of his parents and grandparents going back 134 generations to our great father Avraham. The faith and universal truths are part of our genetic makeup, and the greatness of our ancestors, the steadfastness of their faith and the aggressiveness of their minds, have left their imprint on us.
