The Jew-Diciary System. Shabbos Parshas Emor; 20th Day of Iyar, 1. We have already spoken at length last Shabbos regarding the fact that the Hebrew word for "redemption" Geula is composed of the word "exile" gola with the addition of the letter Alef. At that time we explained two implications of this relationship between the word " gola " and " Geula.

The Rebbe many times repeats the words of Tanya, chapter 37, that all the lofty revelations of the time to come are dependent on our Divine service during the time of exile. Although this is well known among those who learn Chassidus, there is nonetheless a common misconception that once we finish our labor in Golus, than everything else happens automatically. In almost every Sicha of Dvar Malchus, the Rebbe drives home the point that the end of exile is not the end of our labor.
The object is not simply that the lamps should be illuminated the lamps referring to neshomos Yisroel , because this occurs also while Aharon is holding the light to them. This means that even when the one who lights them removes his influence, the lamps stay lit. This means his own existence alone is what drives him, and not the influence of a mashpia not even The Mashpia.
The significance to our times, after Gimmel Tammuz, should be obvious. We are not presently operating in an environment where we see the Rebbe giving dollars, a piece of lekach, Kos Shel brocha, or an enthusiastic wave of the hand.
The Rebbe brings in the Sicha from the Rebbe Rashab:. The nature to rise up [to its source] that is found in fire is not like something additional to it, not because it feels the loftiness of its source; but rather, because of its bittul and its lack of a metzius…. We will truly rise up on our own! In other words: in Melech Hamoshiach was revealed. But despite this, as the Rebbe points out in other sichos, the Jewish people are still fearful and require Moshiach to tell them not to be afraid and to inform them that the Geulah has arrived.
The delay is the recognition of this by the world. In other words, the revelation of Moshiach precedes and is distinct from the coming of Moshiach. One of the most prominent features of the Messianic era is the spreading forth of Divine knowledge. That Moshiach will reveal secrets of Torah is readily understood. Furthermore, what is the idea of an innovation in Torah anyway?!
The answer the Rebbe gives is that the effort of the talmid vosik to find and reveal the answer using the 13 rules through which the Torah is explained makes it his own chiddush.
Meaning that using the tools of the 13 rules the human intellect is capable of revealing this concept. Meaning that human intellect could never arrive at such a conclusion, it must be revealed into human intellect from Above by the Holy One, blessed be He.
An example of such a thing: halacha rules that shechita is forbidden on Shabbos. In a case of saving a life there is a special heter which permits it. What is the connection between the two dimensions of the future Chiddush Torah : the secrets and the halacha since they are referred to together in the same posuk? The Rebbe explains that this can be understood by examining the difference between Beis Shammai and Beis Hillel.
As is known, Beis Shammai ruled very strictly in almost every case, whereas Beis Hillel ruled leniently. Furthermore, the sages tell us that the halacha is with a few specific exceptions according to Beis Hillel. But the halacha is like Beis Hillel because they were the majority, which the Rebbe explains to mean that their reasoning could be understood by the majority.
Similarly, we find that although Rebbi Meir was greatly praised as being unique in his generation, the halacha does not go with his opinion — because the majority of sages could not grasp the depth of his reasoning. The halacha like Beis Hillel is true until in the Messianic Era. But in the time of Moshiach the halacha will be like Beis Shammai, because their sharper reasoning will be grasped by the majority ultimately everyone will grasp it.
We learn from this the crucial point that a halachic ruling must be in accordance with what the Rov understands. And we can learn from here as regards the Psak Din on Moshiach…]. And even more: why do we need to be strict in the Messianic era when there will be no more evil?!
The revealed dimension of Torah, Nigleh , deals with revealed good and revealed evil. Pnimiyus HaTorah deals with hidden good and hidden evil.
Both of these concepts are expressed in the mitzvah of establishing refuge cities for accidental murderers — Arei Miklot. Six such cities were established in Eretz Yisroel in the times of Moshe and Yehoshua. Three more, the Rambam rules, will be established in time of Moshiach. Here we have the same question: will there be murderers in the times of Moshiach?!
This evil in the world will cause the continued existence of accidental deaths though premeditated murder will cease. Looking more deeply, the Rebbe explains that the concept of a refuge city refers to words of Torah. The land of Israel that was conquered in the earlier generations was only the land of the 7 Cananite nations, which correspond to the 7 midos which the Jewish people had to refine. These three lands that will be acquired in the Messianic Era correspond to the 3 intellectual faculties Chabad — Chochma , Bina , and Daas , reflecting the refinement of the intellect, the Moichin which occurs in the times of Moshiach.
This brings us back to Beis Shammai and Beis Hillel. There are certain things that everyone agrees that they are permitted by Torah, and other things that everyone agrees are forbidden by Torah.
Beis Shammai, who were stricter, who ruled in accordance with Pnimiyus HaTorah, deal with a case of doubt by forbidding it, pushing it away, due to the hidden potential evil that the thing may possesses. Once it becomes permissible, a Jew can eat the flesh of this animal, internalizing and elevating it. What as forbidden to eat becomes permissible to eat. Eating refers to internalizing Torah, drawing it down and grasping the concepts.
Shechita means taking that which cannot be internalized and making it able to be internalized. The Shor Habar, which lives on dry land, the revealed world, represents the service of Hashem by refining physicality. Each one has what the other lacks: the spiritual Leviyoson is in a way of elevation from Above, grasping lofty lights but they cannot be drawn down below; the Shor Habar is drawing everything into physicality, but it lacks the lofty revelations.
In the future there will the qualities of both of these dimensions together — that the lofty lights will be drawn down and revealed below. The loftiest spiritual revelations will be drawn down below to into halacha that deals with physical objects. And with this explanation in mind, let us note and grasp what the Rebbe says in the sicha of Parshas Vayeitzei, The only thing lacking is — that a Jew should open his eyes properly, and should see how everything is ready for the Geulah!
This raises the question: is refining the animal soul for the sake of receiving the Torah, or is receiving the Torah for the sake of refining the animal soul?! Meaning that what one sees in another person is the reflection of how one looks at them. This also applies Above. To explain it more deeply, the Rebbe offers three levels of concealment:. The Rebbe is here teaching is something critical to our times: that in order to reveal the latent power of Moshiach, we need to address him with that title!
Meaning that there is practical significance to referring to the Rebbe as Melech haMoshiach. There are two key points to understand here. To explain, every Jew has the potential — and according to the Zohar, it is an obligation — to develop new Torah concepts. In the previous generations, people were very reticent to write, let alone, publish such Torah concepts, lest they not have appreciate the true intent of the law or concept with which they were concerned.
At present, however, there must be efforts in the opposite direction. It is necessary to take precautions that people do not write directives of Torah law when they are incapable of doing so.
Nevertheless, simultaneously, it is necessary to do whatever is necessary to encourage people to increase their efforts in Torah study. No one will publish a Torah concept which he thinks might be in error. Thus, at the very least, for his own self-respect, he will recheck and review the Torah ideas he publishes. Needless to say, however, it is proper to add that these texts should contain a statement saying that they should not be considered as works from which halachic directives for actual practice should be derived.
We see the success of such an approach. When people compose Torah texts like these, they are inspired to dedicate more effort to Torah study.
Indeed, it is impossible for us to appreciate how much the exile has hindered us, for we are all children of the exile. We have grown up in exile and it dominates our thought processes. This, however, will be brought to an end in the near future. Through the service of teshuvah , each person will establish a connection with the essence of his soul.
Translation from Sichos in English. In this discourse the Rebbe explains to us what this means. The answer is that the Torah was given in order that we will become elevated, becoming vessels in which Elokus can be revealed.
In fact, the main refinement and purification of the lower beings the main intent of the giving of the Torah, as mentioned above takes place via the intentions of the mitzvos. As the Rebbe explains here, this mound of stones was never meant to be permanent as opposed to a wall, which has permanence. This recognition — that the Tzimtzum is really for the sake of revelation we could say by way of a moshol : like the father who hides from his son on order that the son will search for and find him — is the accomplishment of Rashbi, who refined this mechitza and brought about that the highest revelations could be perceived also in the lowest worlds.
And how can we possibly succeed to do that properly? In the Sicha of Parshas Emor, that Rebbe made the following enigmatic statement:. This concept is found in the Gemara as brought in the Sicha of Emor , and the Rebbe himself wrote in the early years of his leadership that a person should imagine the face of the Previous Rebbe or look at his photo, explaining the benefits that come from this.
How will we properly understand what the Rebbe is trying to tell us about the identify of Moshiach, and whether we are waiting for him to come or if he has already come? Simple: Keep your eyes on the Rebbe! And with this explanation in mind, let us note and grasp what the Rebbe says in the sicha of Parshas Vayeitzei, The only thing lacking is — that a Jew should open his eyes properly, and should see how everything is ready for the Geulah!
There is a moshol for each of these levels: the fire which is concealed in a coal; the potential for fire concealed in a flint stone; the third level is likened to a name: without a name there is not even the possibility of calling the person, when he has a name there is a possibility that one could call him. In the Sicha of Parshas Emor, that Rebbe made the following enigmatic statement: [The Geulah and building of the 3rd Beis Hamikdash] will be hastened through the study of Torah, and of Chassidus in particular.
