Today is January 1st, 2015. It is also the 10th of Tevet, a fast day, in the Jewish calendar.
The Chasam Sofer says that every year on the 10th of Tevet, in Heaven it is decided if Moshiach (the Messiah) will arrive that year.
What will happen when Moshiach comes??? I ran across this explaination online am sharing it with all of you….
“All of mankind will recognize that G-d is the Creator who put all of us in this universe to fulfill his or her purpose. And then we will have the ability to appreciate, and have the desire to fulfill, that purpose. And there could be no greater feeling of achievement and fulfillment, then the knowledge that one is living up to the purpose for which he or she was created. There can be no more profound feeling of satisfaction then one’s own legitimization — that I belong, that I have a purpose, and that I live up to that purpose. The hope for Moshiach is the hope to realize our G-d given potential. And that is the hope of all hopes!”
All I can think about is how the JWRP and their partner organizations (like The Jewish Experience, the one I am privleged to work at) are bringing about Moshiach, one woman at a time! The free MOMENTUM trip to Israel is the launch pad.
Just a couple of weeks ago, while we were all dancing at dinner after our day at Masada and the Dead Sea, I walked up to Lori Palatnik and said, “Lori…the first geula (Redemption) came because of the merit of the women and the Final Redemption will come from women again because of The JWRP!!!
May it be THIS YEAR!!!
