Moshiach Yom Yom: 17-23 Adar Sheini
Merkaz Shiurei Torah - Chabad


17 Adar Sheini: Not budging until the dream of Galus Ends
The Gemara tells the story of Choni HaMiageil who slept for seventy years as a means to depict the seventy years of Babylonian exile, when “we were as dreamers,” asleep throughout the duration of exile.

Similarly, with respect to every single Jew, exile is like a dream. People should conduct themselves like Choni HaMiageil, who “made a circle and stood in it” and said, “I am not budging from here, etc.” (until his request was fulfilled). “Dalai Galus!” (Enough with exile!)

18 Adar Sheini: Moshiach Will ask about our Learning
In the end, people will certainly cause Moshiach Tzidkeinu to come “now.” And, as it says in Likkutei Torah on the topic of “fortunate is the one who comes here with his learning in hand,” when Moshiach Tzidkeinu comes it is necessary to greet him with “learning in hand.” It is easy to imagine how a person would feel — after all the excuses — when he runs to greet Moshiach Tzidkeinu and Moshiach Tzidkeinu asks him: “Do you have anything to show for yourself as far as having your “learning in hand?”

19 Adar Sheini: Moshiach Now with Song
They make a commotion in order to get others to make a commotion about the notion that Moshiach should come right now, as the Rambam writes, “they will be redeemed immediately.” And they make a commotion that others should proclaim and scream that Moshiach should come right now. And they do this specifically with powerful song, so that it should reach even those who are “merely called by the name Yisroel,” so that they will say it also in their language…

It is not enough to merely want and think about it, or to say it calmly. Rather, it should be proclaimed loudly and with song.

By doing so enthusiastically and as an expression of their wanting Moshiach now, it is like a channel that draws down light and life. Indeed, it triggers the immediate coming of Moshiach, as the Rambam writes, “they will be redeemed immediately.”

20 Adar Sheini: Every Jew can inspire the Leader of the Generation
Once, a dialogue ensued between the Tzemach Tzedek and the Rebbe Maharash about the passing of the particular year the Alter Rebbe had indicated would be the year when Moshiach would be revealed. The Tzemach Tzedek said that in that year Likkutei Torah was printed, but the Rebbe Maharash responded that the Jewish people want and need Moshiach in the literal sense!

The demand for Moshiach in the literal sense must come from ‘the initiative from below.’ The leader of the generation held that the predicted date for the coming of Moshiach was connected to the printing of Likkutei Torah. That is, until he was inspired by the initiative shown by his son and future successor that the generation needs Moshiach in the literal sense.

Since the story was publicized to everyone, it is understood that it does not apply solely to the interests of two leaders. For if so, there would have been no point in it being publicized.

This matter was publicized in order to teach a lesson that applies to every Jew. Every Jew, even the most simple, through his own initiative, can inspire the leader of the generation.

21 Adar Sheini: Our Share in Bringing Moshiach
“A tzaddik decrees and Hashem fulfills.” Since the Rebbe [Rayatz] wanted us to have a share in bringing Moshiach down below ‘ten handbreadths,’ we do, in fact, have such a share.

We must, therefore, see to it that we take an active part in disseminating the wellsprings of Chassidus outward, the prerequisite and preparation for Moshiach’s coming. Indeed, having a share in bringing Moshiach ensures that when Moshiach comes, it won’t be “bread of shame” [i.e., an undeserved reward].

22 Adar Sheini: When the shaliach does his shlichus
The leader of the generation is the Moshiach of the generation. The leader of the generation chooses someone of his generation, appoints him as his emissary and assigns him to travel to distant parts (spiritually) in order to disseminate Judaism and the wellsprings of Chassidus outward, “to have His name dwell therein.” When that shaliach (which is numerically equivalent to 348) fulfills his shlichus devotedly with all ten soul powers (+10), he reveals the concept of Moshiach (which totals 358), which is the concept of the meshalei’ach — “a person’s emissary is like himself” — the leader of the generation, the Moshiach of the generation.

23 Adar Sheini: The revelations of the future
A Chassid’s Divine service is “with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” But his desire, which is even higher than “might,” is directed to nothing, nothing besides “You alone,” Hashem Himself. For this reason he screams “Moshiach now!” For in the true and complete Redemption through Moshiach Tzidkeinu Pnimiyus Atik will be revealed. In simpler terms, “The glory of Hashem will be revealed and all flesh will see, etc.” “Glory” refers to a transcendent revelation of G-dliness. More particularly, the very highest level of elevation, Pnimiyus Atik.
