Nissan Ending - Iyyar Beginning
As we are ending Hodesh Nissan, Hodesh HaGe'ula, I will link to a few of the recent thought-provoking articles around the web regarding the Ge'ula:
- R' Yaakov Nathan quotes the last Lubavitcher Rebbe Zt"l on why the Galut continues
- R' Pinchos Winston tells how Hashem's chess pieces are being positioned for an unexpected checkmate - specifically, regarding the episode with the 15 British sailors
- R' Dov Bar Leib also agrees that the peaceful resolution to that episode does not mean "Business as usual".
The end of Nissan does not mean hope is lost for Ge'ula this year. In fact, see the beginning of Hashem1.net's post from last year on how Iyyar has a special significance for the Ge'ula.
Hodesh Tov to all.
