I have a question, if Rabbi Shimon can redeem the world that means he is a Moshiach! but why he didn't do it? Reply

He brought humanity the Zohar which is humanity’s strongest connection to HaShem. Only when enough people — a critical mass of people on earth —-study Zohar and achieve an internal state of love thy neighbor as thyself will Messiah come. I do not belong to Chabad but utilize their apps and websites often as they have great content so my views may not mirror theirs on this. Shalom. Reply
