MBY in Today's Daf Yomi

Today's Daf Yomi is Sukkah 52, which includes the sole reference in Shas to Mashiah Ben Yosef.  Nevertheless, references to MBY are found in many other Ma'amarei Haza"l, Zohar, Rishonim and Aharonim.

See Mashiach's Wife for an interesting perspective on MBY.

Rabbi Avigdor Miller (a popular Chareidi Rabbi, born 1908 CE, died 2001 CE) delivered a free public lecture in the last year of his life, in which he taught that Jews should pray for the Israeli Army.
I personally witnessed this; I was there.

When a Jew recites Tefilat Shemoneh Esrei, he is permitted to add his own personal prayer requests in the middle of the final paragraph, which begins with Elokai Netzor Leshoni MeiRa.

I recently began adding the prayer for the Israeli Army in that part. I know this is not the way it is normally recited, but it is permitted, and I can say it that way in any synagogue.

Rabbi Steven Pruzansky of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in Teaneck NJ told me that I can recite it even on Shabbat and Yom Tov, because it is a communal tefillah, not a private bakashah.
