"Teka B'Shofar & Tzipisa L'Yeshua: Living, Davening and "Seeing" the Ultimate Geula
Apropos to the time of the year, here is Reb Yerachmiel's shiur from this past Sunday from the Baltimore Community Kollel.
During these Bain Ha'Miztarim, we increase our focus on the words we daven three times a day: "Teka B'Shofar Gadol Lechayrusainu" and ask Hashem to "Sound that Great Shofar" from the heavens to announce Moshiach's arrival. This Shofar, most of us learned about at the youngest of ages.
It is the following request, however, "V'Sah Neis Lekabeitz Galuyosaynu", in which we ask Hashem to "Raise a Banner to Gather our Exiled Ones", which remains elusive even to the most experienced and educated. What exactly is this mysterious "Banner" and what might it mean to us?
In his latest shiur at the Baltimore Community Kollel, Reb Yerachmiel teaches us, through the penetrating and tear-filled eyes of Rav Shimshon Pincus zt"l, how we can, and must, begin to "see", and inspire others to "see", this Banner even today: by living, davening and experiencing a true yearning for Moshiach Tzidkainu; by living lives immersed in the battle cry of "Ki Le'Shuascha Kivinu Kol Hayom"; "For Your Salvation, Hashem, We Long All Day Long".
