The Forward-Looking Theology of Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson

What are the theological underpinnings of the Rebbe's forward-looking social vision? Rather than seeing the messianic redemption of the future as a return to the glory of the past, Chabad theology sees the future redemption as surpassing anything achieved in the past, including during the period of the first and second temples. The future redemption is something entirely new and it is attained through the transformation of the flaws and darkness—which result from the tzimtzum—into greater perfection and greater light.
