In the early period of his leadership the Alter Rebbe taught: "The footsteps of man are directed by G‑d."1 When a Jew comes to a particular place it is for an (inner Divine) intent and purpose - to perform a mitzva, whether a mitzva between man and G‑d or a mitzva between man and his fellow-man. A Jew is G‑d's messenger. Wherever a messenger (shaliach) may be, he represents the power of the meshalei'ach, the one who sent him.2 The superior quality that souls possess, higher than the angels (who are also "messengers"), is that souls are messengers by virtue of Torah.
