Save us Hashem

Filed under: Current Events — Reb Moshe @ 6:51 pm

The talmud says, when you give charity to someone, you have to support then in the level they are used too. If a currently poor man was used to lean meat, then we should collect charity to give him this. In the same way, one could say that our generation is spoiled & shouldn’t complain when previously, others worked in sweat shops but we are like poor rich men who cannot live with the current economic restrictions, therefore, we ask Hashem to answer now & provide us with what we are used to. How can we study Torah like this?

We are not the generation strong enough to eat bread with water. We shouldn’t have to prove that we are. In the times of Moshiach, our test of just keeping shabbos, kosher & prayer is enough. Hashem should see this and have mercy. There are thousands & thousands of soldiers in Hashem’s army fighting every day to glorify His name. The spiritual … Read Morechassidim, the strong litvachs, the fighting baal teshuvah. Hashem’s army is the greatest in the world, now we just ask He feeds them & shelters them. Nobody should have to worry every day if their home will be foreclosed & if they can feed their children tomorrow. It is enough already that our Rabbis, Rebbes have created such an willing army in our generation to sacrifice their being for Torah. Now we must turn and ask that all our people have provisions to continue!

    It’s like we’re standing ready at the front lines and waiting for the order to march forward. Sometimes we try to jump in this direction, or that direction. But until we are commanded to go straight ahead, our efforts though noble don’t seem to get us where we need to be.

    It’s come the time when we’re all at this proverbial “line” — we feel ourselves unable to wait, but at the same time, what do we do in the meantime?

    The only answer then is to plow forward. The weight of all of us, all our Torah study and mitvos, added to the great merit of all previous generations, must surely win out this tug of war match once and for all.

    Here we are Hashem. Standing at the entrance way to the Redemption.
