Terumah – 5752 – quotes from the Rebbe

ADAR

 

The month of Adar is when the Mazal, luck for the Jewish people shines.

JEW / DIVINE

At all times, due to a Jew’s Divine soul, s/he is in essence Divine.

JEW’S ESSENCE

From Matan Torah (the giving of the Torah) a Jew’s essential self, is one who desires to fulfill God’s will!

JEW’S DUTY

As a Jew’s essence is pure, therefore he’s been given the opportunity / obligation to purify elevate this world.

 

BUILD THE BEIS HAMIKDOSH / TEMPLE

(By way of introduction – the last week’s Sicha (Rebbe’s talk Mishpatim 5752) the Rebbe clearly said, that the remarkable unbelievable unthinkable disillusionment of the state of war between Soviet Russia and the United States and the joint nuclear disarmament (reduction) was due to the messianic process – he clearly states, that this was part of the messianic process – and as we know, the messianic process is outlined by the Rambam, namely  “If a king (Rebbe/leader) will arise from the House of David (which the Rebbe was) who diligently contemplates the Torah, and observes its mitzvot, as prescribed by the Written Law and the Oral Law as David, his ancestor, (which the Rebbe certainly did;) Will compel all of Israel to walk in (the way of the Torah) and rectify the breaches in its observance, (which perhaps unique in all of history the Rebbe valiantly and with love acomplished) and fight the wars of God, (now this is the crux – because as the Rebbe says, there are three kinds of wars – vanquishing – causing your superior strength, that the enemy doesn’t attack; and the ultimate, where you get your enemy to become your friend – and this is exactly how mainly the Rebbe (through advice to the U.S. Government got Russia to convert to peace) we may, with assurance, consider him Mashiach.”

In other words, after these requirements were fulfilled, then the next stage begins (as the Rambam writes: )

“If he succeeds in the above, builds the Temple in its place, and gathers the dispersed of Israel, he is definitely the Mashiach.”

Now the Rebbe in Mishpatim said that it is a wonder how come the instruction from on high did not come to build the Beis Hamikdosh… (as this is the logical sequence..))

 

In Parshas Teruma – which is about building the Mishkan – the Rebbe clearly tells us to quite simply, build the third Beis Hamikdosh!
