  • This makes perfect sense since the law is for all Jews to assemble during those times. So a perfected redemption would be a sight to behold at that time. (Backed up multiple times in the Tanach as well.) Todah!

  • The Redemption (defined as the return of the Yidden from exile to Eretz Yisrael) would seem to be different from the appearance of the Moshiach. I think when the Gemara in Rosh HaShana speaks of the Yidden being redeemed, it is speaking of the Redemption, the return to Eretz Yisrael. Further, the Midrash Rabbah in sefer Sh'mos (I forget which parshah) says that the Yidden will be redeemed on Pesach. None of this necessarily speaks to the appearance of the Moshiach, which may very well be a separate event.
