Redemption and the Real World

The Evil Inclination comes to a Jewish child – or any Jew – and says: You can sit in the synagogue or the study hall and ‘Await Moshiach every day’…But the world seems to show an entirely different reality!”
Redemption, Yearning for and Anticipating, Lubavitcher Rebbe
Redemption and the Real World
Disc 87, Program 346

Event Date: 16 Av 5744 - August 14, 1984

The Evil Inclination comes to a Jewish child – or any Jew – and says: “You’ve been busy studying Torah and doing Mitzvos, but I’ve been out there in the world; there are so many other nations, so many influences which are not helpful to Torah study and Jewish observance. You can sit in the synagogue or the study hall and ‘Await Moshiach every day’… You can ‘Hope for G-d’s salvation all day long’… But the world seems to show an entirely different reality!”

Answers the little child: “Listen here, Evil Inclination! You don’t even know a simple verse in Torah: ‘They are Your people and Your inheritance that You took out from the land of Egypt by Your great strength and Your outstretched arm.’”

All Jews, in all times and all places, are G-d’s people and G-d’s inheritance. And just like He took them out of the Egyptian exile “In the blink of an eye,” so too in the future Redemption the entire Jewish people – men, women and children – will march to redemption with heads held high!
