Moshiach Yom Yom: 7-13 Iyar
Merkaz Shiurei Torah - Chabad


7 Iyar: Tzitzis and the Redemption
The mitzva of tzitzis is equal to all the other mitzvos combined and leads to the fulfillment of “all the mitzvos of Hashem.”*

*[Footnote 29] In the terms of Chassidus: The verse, “And you shall remember all the mitzvos of Hashem and you shall do them,” means that you shall “do” [or make] the mitzvos in such a way that they should be at the level of the masculine quality, which is mashpia, etc. [i.e., they should extend influence or energy]. Through you the mitzvos will be called vessels and “limbs of the King,” in that G-d’s Infinite Light will be drawn within them. (Likkutei Torah, Sh’lach 45a-b)

*[Footnote 31] The end of the section [on tzitzis] says, “I am Hashem your G-d who took you out of the land of Egypt” (the exodus from Egypt, which was the beginning and source of all subsequent redemptions), teaching us that the mitzva of tzitzis* is connected with and hastens the true and complete Redemption, “As in the days of your exodus from the land of Egypt, I will show you wonders.” 

*“The four corners” [of tzitzis] correspond to the four terms describing the Redemption: “I will take out,” “I will save,” “I will redeem,” and “I will take” (Rashi, end of Parshas Sh’lach). Indeed, the Redemption will also be from “the four corners of the world.”

8 Iyar: Now it is up to Hashem to fulfill His Mission
Since the avoda of shlichus has been completed, every shaliach comes to the true meshaleiach, Hashem, and informs Him, “I did my mission, and now the time has come for You, as it were, to do Your mission” (for Hashem is also a shaliach [“He tells His words to Yaakov…”], and together with the ten s’firos, the Divine Being and Essence is, as it were, Moshiach Tzidkeinu): “Please send with the one You will send,” actually send us Moshiach Tzidkeinu!

9 Iyar: The Nations of the World Proclaim A New Era
This Erev Shabbos a [significant] event took place. The leaders of the world’s great and important nations convened, led by the presidents of the two superpowers, and made resolutions and announced a new era concerning the relationship between the nations of the world, abolishing the state of warfare between the countries of the world. This new era is to be expressed in limiting [the production of] and dismantling weapons, even to the extent of [embracing] peace and unity, cooperation and mutual assistance among the nations of the world and the benefit of all humanity.

...Since we are at the peak time for Moshiach’s coming, “behold he (Melech HaMoshiach) comes,” we already see a (foretaste and) beginning of Melech HaMoshiach’s effect on the nations – “He will render judgment among the gentiles and reprove many nations, and they will grind their swords into plowshares,” etc. – through Hashem placing in the hearts of the leaders of the gentile nations (“the heart of kings and ministers is in G-d’s hands”) to resolve and proclaim together about this state in which “they will grind their swords into plowshares.”

Indeed, the reason this resolution and proclamation took place specifically at this time is because of the imminence of the actual realization of the true and complete Redemption through Moshiach Tzidkeinu.

10 Iyar: Teshuva Has Already been Accomplished
There is no explanation at all concerning the fact that the exile has extended up until our days, for it states explicitly in the Gemara that “all endpoints have been reached...” Continuing in the Gemara it says that “the matter depends on nothing but repentance.” There is no greater teshuva than the idea of Shabbos, as the Alter Rebbe explains in Igeres HaTeshuva that Shabbos is connected and related to the concept of teshuva, to the extent that “Shabbos is composed of the same letters as ‘tashev.’”

Even the simplest of all people see and understand that the letters of the words “Shabbos” and “tashev,” as they are spelled in Lashon HaKodesh, are the same. It is, therefore, obvious that their content is likewise identical! Thus, how is it possible that we find ourselves at the height of Shabbos (“Shabbos which is composed of the same letters as ‘tashev’”), meaning that we have already accomplished the concept of teshuva as expressed in Shabbos, yet Redemption has still not come? ...Ad masai!

We should not remain with the question...rather, there shouldn’t be room to ask this question, since exile should be abolished altogether!

11 Iyar: The Advantage of Redemption “In its appointed time”
...In order to bring about the true and complete Redemption, we must work on achieving peace throughout the world, so that not even one spark remains, including even the tiniest spark that is not yet refined!

Shaarei Ora explains at length the difference between Redemption as it occurs “in its appointed time” and Redemption described as, “I will hasten it.” Indeed, there is something special about the Redemption “in its appointed time,” for then all the sparks of holiness will have been completely refined.

If the Redemption were to take place in a manner of “I will hasten it,” with speed, etc., it is possible that some sparks would go lost, ch’v, for when the Redemption is rushed, there is no time to delay and search and see whether perhaps some little sparks, the tiniest specks remain, which could also be redeemed.

However, when the Redemption is “in its appointed time” in an orderly way, then all the sparks are refined so that not even one tiny spark remains unredeemed.

12 Iyar: “I Will Hasten It” Is Already “In Its Appointed Time”
On the other hand, there is also an advantage to a “rushed” Redemption as opposed to a Redemption in its appointed time. In our times, after “all endpoints have been reached,” we may already speak about the advantage of “in its appointed time,” since “in its appointed time” has been reached a number of times already… Therefore, regarding the Redemption in a hasty manner, in our times there is no reason to worry about something lacking in birurim (which was possible in an era in which there was the possibility of “I will hasten it” coming before “in its appointed time” ), since the “I will hasten it” is already “in its appointed time.”

13 Iyar: the victory of Malka Meshicha
13 is the gematria of “echad” (one), which alludes to the avoda of accomplishing “Hashem will be King over the entire earth; on that day Hashem will be one and His name will be One.” This refers to the revelation of His kingdom and His oneness in the world, to the point of “malchus of netzach…,” [which is] the nitzachon (victory) of Malka Meshicha in the true and complete Redemption.
