One of the signs cited by the Talmud as an indication of the imminent coming of the Messiah, is a generation notorious for its brazenness and audacity: "Chutzpah will increase... youths will shame their elders.. a son will disgrace his father, a daughter will rebel against her mother..."

Since these signs have all been fulfilled, and more then fulfilled, and still the redemption has not yet come, I suggest that we make positive use of the chutzpah with which our generation has been blessed. Let us boldly demand of G‑d, in no uncertain terms, that since all deadlines for the redemption have come and gone, He is to immediately send the redeemer. G‑d will certainly be pleased by our audacity and bring the long-awaited era of universal peace and divine perfection to the world.
