ANTICIPATION is a series featuring 120 segments – on the Twelfth Principle of our Jewish Faith: Belief in and Awaiting the Coming of The Messiah (Moshiach). Drawing on a wide range of classic and contemporary commentaries to clearly address the burning issue of passive Waiting vs active Anticipation!

Episode Thirty-Six: SPOKEN WORD: Are Cerebral Convictions and Heartfelt Yearning – for Moshiach’s Arrival – Sufficient, or must we Articulate our faithful credo and express our anticipation as well?

This Episode features a penetrating analysis of this very question. To appreciate pithy statements by the great Rebbes’ of our modern age, we journey back to biblical origins.

From the Talmud to the Medieval Sages, through the wisdom of the Arizal to the illumination of the Baal Shem Tov, incredible insight about the unique spiritual force of the spoken word emerges.

In clarifying the unique spiritual force and potency of speech, we ultimately make a powerful case for the need to not only believe and yearn, but rather make a point or regularly expressing those faith sentiments and spiritual craving as well!

This Thirty Sixth Episode of our ongoing study series on The Geula, our final Redemption generally referred to as the Coming of Moshiach (The Messiah) honours the Yartziet of the late Jack Kazdan, Yaakov ben Dovid HaCohen.
