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.

Sefer Torah to Greet Moshiach

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

After 33 centuries,
all that’s needed has been done.

The table is set,
the feast of Moshiach is being served
with the Ancient Wine,
the Leviathan and the Wild Ox
—and we are sitting at it.

All that’s left
is for us
to open our eyes.

Sefer HaSichot 5752, p. 165.

(Adapter’s Note: I write these words, but I do not understand.
But then, if I understood them, I suppose I would not need to be told to open my eyes.
