Jewish History

The writing of the "Sefer Torah to greet Moshiach," initiated at the behest of the 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, in 1942, was concluded 28 years later at a special gathering convened by the Lubavitcher Rebbe on Friday afternoon, the 9th of Shevat, on the eve of the 20th anniversary of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak's passing.

After a series of hair-rising escapes from Gestapo agents in Poland and Hungary, R. Aharon Rokeach, fourth Rebbe of Belz, safely arrived in the Land of Israel. He was accompanied by his brother, R. Mordechai, father of the present Belzer Rebbe, R. Yissachar Dov.

Daily Thought

When it all began, heaven was here on earth.

This physical, earthly world, more than any of the higher spiritual worlds, was the place where the very essence of G‑d’s infinite light could be found.

But humankind, step by step, banished that divine presence from its home, with a tree of knowledge, with a man who murdered his brother, with all those things that human beings do…

Since humankind chased it away, only humankind can bring it back. And this began with Abraham, who proclaimed Oneness for all the world.

And it ends with us.
Our generation will bring heaven back down to earth.
