Short thought


 G-d spoke to us in Horeb, saying: “You have long enough surrounded this mountain. Turn away, and take your journey…” (1:6-7)

The mountain we’re talking about is Mount Sinai, scene of the most monumental event in human history: G-d’s revelation of His wisdom and will to man. Still G-d says: “You’ve been hanging around this mountain long enough. Move on!”

In our lives, we also have moments, days or years of revelation, times when we learn and grow and are enriched. But the purpose most always be to move on, move away, and carry the enlightenment and enrichment to someplace else — some corner of creation that awaits redemption.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)







A nasty anti-Semite walks into a bar and is about to order a drink when he sees a guy close by with kippa, tzitzis, and payos. So he shouts over to the bartender so everyone can hear, “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender, but not for that Jew over there.
Soon after the drinks have been handed out, he notices that the Jewish guy smiles, waves to him and says, “Thank you.” This infuriates him and in a loud voice, he once again orders drinks for everyone except the Jew. But as before, this does not seem to worry the Jewish guy who continues to smile, and again says, “Thank you.” So the guy says to the bartender, “What’s the matter with that Jew? I’ve ordered two rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar except him, and all he does is smile and thank me. Is he nuts?
“Nope,” replies the bartender. “He owns the place.”



Moshiach and the Future Redemption    


This is what the Redemption is all about-not some radical change in creation, but the uncovering of nature’s truest self, accomplished though our sojourn in galut.



The Rhinebeck Jewish Center is a project of Chabad Dutchess.
