Two Prayers for World Peace: 19 Kislev, 5744 • November 24, 1983

To counter escalating conflicts in the world, the Rebbe requests that all Jews add in prayer for world peace and tranquility: It is crucial for all Jews, without exception, to begin their daily prayers by declaring, “I hereby accept upon myself the Mitzvah to ‘Love your fellow as yourself.’” This not only prevents quarreling in general; it will bring an end to the exile, itself caused by a lack of love for others.
Lubavitcher Rebbe
Two Prayers for World Peace
19 Kislev, 5744 • November 24, 1983
Disc 17, Program 65

Event Date: 18 Kislev 5744 - November 24, 1983

To counter escalating conflicts in the world, the Rebbe requests that all Jews add in prayer for world peace and tranquility:

It is crucial for all Jews, without exception, to begin their daily prayers by declaring, “I hereby accept upon myself the Mitzvah to ‘Love your fellow as yourself.’” This not only prevents quarreling in general; it will bring an end to the exile, itself caused by a lack of love for others.

All Jews should conclude their prayers with the verse, “Indeed, the righteous will extol Your Name, the upright will dwell in Your presence.” This affirms harmony in the world, even while still in exile, enabling the Jewish people’s peace of mind to focus on G-d. With this tranquil devotion they will merit to dwell in G-d’s presence, in the Third Holy Temple.
