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

The world is a battlefield.

Until now, we have fought back sinister darkness, established our fortresses of divine light, and even rescued precious jewels from the enemy.

But now, that is not enough.

Now are the last moments of the battle, when all that matters is to win.

Now, in these final days of a world in exile, nothing can be left behind.

No creature, no event, no human being that we encounter.

Through each, we must find some way to perceive the divine.

For the battle is won only once all things are one.
