By the Grace of G-d


So many things are happening. It would be nice if we could sit back and rest from all the turmoil and conflict and shenanigans.

It would be nice if all the arguing would tone down. If all the efforts to make this world a better place would be completed successfully. If all nations could take a deep breath and relax. If we could go on with life in a smooth, harmonious, peaceful way.

It would be nice if we could just stop and rest.

G-d gave the Jewish people the gift of Shabbat, when all weekday activities stop. It’s a remembrance of G-d’s creation of the world, which He accomplished in six Days, and on the seventh day He rested. And it’s a sign of the Redemption with Moshiach, when all mankind will finally find rest.

As Passover approaches, a time when G-d redeemed His people from Egypt many years ago, and a time which is compared to the future Redemption, as the prophet states (Micah 7; 15): “Just as in the days when you left Egypt, I will show you wonders,” and we recently witnessed wondrous wonders, as 350 projectiles sent against Israel were amazingly neutralized, may we soon see the most wondrous miracle of all, when there will be no more animosity, and all humanity will accept G-d, our Creator, as King over all the world.

When everyone will finally be able to rest. When evil and darkness will be eliminated. And the entire world will be a dwelling place for G-d, forever.
