A comprehensive, in-depth exploration of the Jewish idea of Moshiach and the future redemption

Moshiach and the Future Redemption

Moshiach and the Future Redemption

 Email

Think Judaism is about tradition? It's not!

Because the tradition itself is about something much bigger. About Abraham smashing the idols in his father's house. Moses liberating a people from slavery. Isaiah lecturing a war-hungry civilization on world peace. It's about changing the world and making it the way it's supposed to be.

Every book of Torah is filled with that idea. Every mitzvah we do is part of creating that world. Every moment of our history, that hope beats in our hearts.

Today we discover that humanity has bought into our dream. That the pieces are neatly falling in place. That rays of a new dawn have already begun to shine.

Introduction
Looking to make sense of the notion of Moshiach? Here’s a great place to start.
Why Exile?
What is the Jewish definition of “exile”? And is it just a punishment, or is there a deeper reason for our displacement?
Belief & Anticipation
Where does Moshiach fit into the Jewish belief system? Is it something we need to look forward to? Why?
Who Is Moshiach?
What kind of person will make it all happen? Discover clues from Jewish leaders from Moses to Maimonides.
The Messianic Era
What will it be like? What to expect? What will be different, and what will be the same?
Let's Make It Happen!
Any single mitzvah can be the one that will be the proverbial straw that “breaks the camel’s back” and brings the Messianic Era. Add your mitzvah to the scale!

Re: culture and religion The main purpose of any religion outside of Judaism should be to encourage a moral and ethical code of living among its followers. Everything else is almost secondary. Reply

culture and religion As a doctor, with frum children and 2 sons are also doctors, but one of the doctors also became a Rabbi, I am concerned. From a scientific point of view so much of our culture and laws can be shown to be scientifically correct by today's standards. Yet they were formulated thousands of years ago, when scientific knowledge was very limited. Thus with total respect and admiration, a higher hand must have known what is correct, safe and necessary. If this is correct, then why are there so many religions with so many different rules and attitudes, and antagonistic to each other? Surely with one almighty G-d we should all follow exactly, because it can be proven that it is scientifically correct! A burning question. Reply

Cultue and religion Add a comment...Dear Mr. Levin,


First congratulations on the success of your wonderful children who clearly have achieved great things in their young lives, no doubt, your love and their exposure to Torah and Mitzvahs has been a great influence on them and the successes they enjoy. As to your question, I point to the fact that the other nations were offered the Torah first before the Jews were offered it, but the other nations rejected it, in a like matter they too reject the revealed truths regarding the profundity of G-ds Torah. This may seem like an over- simplification of your question, however, I believe it is right on point.

Respectfully,
