This series features an in-depth study – in 120-byte size segments – on the Twelfth Principles of our Jewish Faith, Belief in the coming of The Messiah (Moshiach). Drawing on a wide range of classic and contemporary commentaries ultimately addressing the burning issue of passive Anticipation vs active Awaiting?
Episode Twenty-Two: “ASKING FOR THE MESSIAH”
In the previous Episodes we began to address the idea of actively awaiting and even nurturing anticipatory urgency for Moshiach’s arrival. We’ve already established that simply believing in the inevitable eventuality of Moshiach’s arrival isn’t good enough!
Moving on, in this Episode we will discover that passive anticipation is also insufficient, rather it’s mandatory that we take initiative in asking for Messianic Redemption.
Discover how this idea is rooted in the soil of inspired Jewish antiquity, with origins stretching all the way back to the early back to the biblical era.
As elucidated by our Sages, the practical application of these teachings is firmly planted in the Halachik groundwork from which our daily prayers sprout.
This is the Twenty Second Episode in an ongoing study series on The Geula, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of The Messiah (Moshiach).
The zechut of this Torah study is dedicated to the speedy recovery and a long healthy life for Henya bat Bracha Devorah Leah.
