WILL THE REDEMPTION INTO REALITY
When a Jew cries out “Daloi galus! (Enough with exile!)” and “Moshiach now!” – were he simply
to want it sincerely it would be fullled at once,
without any delay (and there is no need to wait
even the short duration described in the verse, “His word runs swiftly”), being that the redemption is already here in the
world and a Jew must simply reveal it! * The lesson of the mahn.
Translated by Boruch Merkur
 AS WITH THE FLAVOR OF THE MAHN, YOUR WILL IS DONE
The miraculous provision of mahn teaches that, in each generation, every Jew has the capacity to receive his livelihood and all his necessities – an abundance in the areas of family, health, and sustenance – in a manner of “bread from the heavens,” provided by the “one leader of the generation.” [In the merit of Moshe Rabbeinu, the Jews were able to survive in the desert for forty years, living off of
mahn
, miraculous “bread [that fell] from the heavens.”] The Torah describes how G-d commanded the Jewish people to preserve a “jar of
mahn,
” “as a safekeeping for generations” (Shlach 16:32). As with all concepts discussed in the Torah, a lesson can be derived from the
mahn
 that is relevant to all generations. The miraculous provision of
mahn
 teaches that, in each generation, every Jew has the capacity to receive his livelihood and all his necessities – an abundance in the areas of family, health, and sustenance – in a manner of “bread from the heavens,” provided for him by the “one leader of the generation” (Sanhedrin 8a, quoted in Rashi’s commentary on the Torah, VaYeilech 31:7). This is true both with regard to the necessities of life as well as things intended for enjoyment.Moreover, the Jewish people have the power to fulfill their heart’s desires simply by willing it, as learned from the
mahn
. (“It had in it [the taste] of all the flavors [imaginable], and every Jew would taste in it all that he so desired, etc. He didn’t have to articulate it verbally but just think of it in his heart. He would simply express [in thought] what his soul craves, and G-d would fulfill his wish, and the person  would enjoy the desired taste” ––Shmos Rabba 25:3.) There is no need for a Jew to even wait for his wish to be granted; it is already apparent in the world.  All that is required to reveal it [to realize one’s heart’s desire] is to genuinely want it. [G-d surely acquiesces and provides the Jew with his heart’s desire, for] the true will of a Jew is indeed the will of the Creator (in accordance with the ruling of Rambam in Laws of Divorce Ch. 2, end).
TO GENUINELY WANT MOSHIACH NOW
The above concept also has a timely application. Namely,  when a Jew wishes for [the end of the exile – crying out] “

TH
 OF IYAR AND MOSHIACH
By Rabbi Gershon Avtzon
Dear Reader sh’yichyeh This coming week is 13 Iyar.  Yud Gimmel Iyar marks the yahrtzait of Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib o.b.m., the brother of the Rebbe. Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib was born in Nikolayev on the 16th of Sivan, 5669. That same year, the family moved to  Yekaterinoslav, as Rabbi Levi  Yitzchok took up the position of Rov of the city. He was known as a child prodigy and was famous for his diligence.  As a young man visiting  with the Rebbe Rayatz, Chassidim enjoyed engaging him in discussions in Nigleh and Chassidus, and challenging him  with difficult questions. He was in Berlin with the Rebbe in the pre-war years, and later moved to Eretz Yisroel, where he married. Later on he moved to Liverpool, England, where he passed away on the 13th of Iyar, 5712. The Rebbe arranged his burial in Tzfas, and was extremely vigilant that his mother, Rebbetzin Chana, should not learn of his passing. In 5751, the Rebbe explained the lessons to be learned from the name Yisroel Aryeh Leib: “The above can be connected with the name of the person whose yahrtzait is commemorated today, Rav  Yisroel Aryeh Leib (the Rebbe shlita’s brother). Although he is a private individual, nevertheless, each Jew is interconnected  with the entire Jewish people for the entire Jewish people are allegorically described as a single  body. Indeed, in regard to the individual mentioned above, this interconnection is further emphasized by the fact that his first name is Yisroel, the name of the Jewish people as a whole. The name Yisroel conveys two seemingly opposite concepts: On one hand, the name Yisroel is an acronym for the Hebrew phrase meaning “There are 600,000 letters in the Torah.” This highlights the connection  between the Torah and the 600,000 general souls which make up the Jewish people; every Jewish soul has a letter of the Torah and that letter is the source for his life-force.  Also, the Torah associates the name Yisroel with the service of “striving with man and angels and prevailing.” This implies involvement with the world at large and even  war with the opposing forces. Thus, this appears to convey an opposite thrust than the previous interpretation which emphasized a Jew’s connection with the Torah, a level above worldly involvement. This difficulty can be resolved as follows: First and foremost, a Jew must realize that his life-force is derived from his letter in the Torah and therefore, all aspects of his conduct must be governed  by the Torah’s directives. Simultaneously, he must also be aware that the ultimate goal of his service is not to separate himself from the world at large, but as mentioned previously, to “reflect on three things,” and carry out his service in creating a dwelling for G-d in this lowly world. This requires contending  with “angels,” i.e., the spiritual forces which are the source for the entities in this material world, as our Sages say, “every blade of grass in this world has a source in the heavens which compels it to grow” – and with “men” with Eisav and Lavan, who represent the gentile nations of this world. Despite having to deal with such an environment, a Jew is able to prevail and transform his surroundings into a dwelling for G-d. This implies that he does not
