Yom Yom: 26 Adar Rishon - 2 Adar Sheini
Merkaz Shiurei Torah - Chabad
Adar Rishon: The world is ready to accept the fact that Yaakov
Avinu did not die
is conceivable that somebody could pass this off as wild talk,
words that have never been spoken since time immemorial. Why are
these matters been mentioned all of a sudden? How will the world
react when they hear these things?
one must know, first and foremost, that there is no reason to be
affected by the world, no need to worry about what they will say,
etc. In fact, since this is the truth according to the Torah of
Truth, it should be publicized in an open manner.
the situation today is such that the world is ready to accept it;
one must simply speak in a forthright manner.
when one hears the claim in the world that “they eulogized and
embalmed [him],” one must state explicitly the reality according
to Torah. And there is no reason to fear the reaction, etc., for
the world is ready to accept it.

Adar Rishon: The Special Quality of The 27th of the Month
significance of the 27th day is expressed by the letters of the
word “zach” [purity, whose numerical equivalent is 27],
which includes the concepts of purifying, cleansing, and
refining, as it says in reference to the Redemption, “Many will
be purified, cleansed, and refined” (Daniel 12:10). The process
of purifying and refining is perfected when the intent behind the tzimtzum
and concealment inherent in the name Elokim is revealed.
elaborate further: The 27th (zach) follows the 26th, which
is the numerical of equivalent of Hashem’s name Havayeh. That
is, the order of Divine service is that first one must bring about
the revelation of the name Havayeh (tzimtzum for the sake
of revelation), and then one must reveal the purpose of the tzimtzum
and concealment of the name Elokim.

Adar Rishon: Until he cries out “Moshiach Now,” as well
can one relax when the true and complete Redemption has not yet
come?! ...How is it possible that one holds himself back from
shaking up the world with the cry “Moshiach Now”?! ...During davening,
Krias Shma Al HaMita, etc., one must cry out “Shma
Yisroel,” but the rest of the time one must cry out
behavior must also be expressed when speaking with others. First
and foremost one must cry out “Moshiach Now”! ...crying out to
such an extent that also the other person begins to cry out

Adar Rishon: Will There Still Be Evil In The Messianic Era?
in the Messianic Era, when the Divine service of the Jewish people
of sifting out good from evil will have been completed, and
they will achieve the perfection that existed before the sin of
the Tree of Knowledge, evil will still exist in the world.
Therefore, there will still be a need for cities of refuge to
negate the possibility of any undesirable circumstance resulting
from the existence of evil in the world (as it was before the sin
of the Tree of Knowledge, when there was the possibility for the
concept of sin [despite the fact that evil was completely separate
from good] in virtue of the [very] existence of evil in the
2nd day Shavuos 5751; edited)
Adar Rishon: Listen up, Yidden need Moshiach
truth of the matter is that the opposite is correct: A downright
normal individual, dressed conventionally and speaking soundly,
suddenly begins to scream “Moshiach Now!”— it is
specifically behavior such as this that awakens and inspires the
other person’s inner spirit. For the fact is that his soul also
screams out “Moshiach Now!”...
approaching another with perfect manners, you will not be able to
remove even the dust and mud that covers the outer klipa.
However, if you approach him and scream, “Moshiach Now! Listen
up, Yidden need Moshiach” — by doing so his outer klipa
will be removed, revealing the inner dimension of his soul!
main point is that there is no need for proof and evidence;
rather, “Taste and see...” Let everyone try this approach and
see the outcome for themselves! And as a result of this approach
the concept of [the cry of] “Moshiach Now” will be understood
— that specifically by screaming “Moshiach Now!” you will
arouse and have an impact on another.

Adar Sheini: To Strengthen The Spirit Of The Jewish People
should encourage and strengthen the spirit of the Jewish people by
means of the proclamation the Holy One, blessed be He, says every
day in a manner of actual renewal: “Pakod pakadeti eschem”
(I have remembered you), and, Moshiach Tzidkeinu “stands behind
our wall,’ and, “behold, this [Moshiach] comes.”
should aim to greet him by adding in the fulfillment of Torah and mitzvos,
in accordance with the ruling of the Rambam (whose yahrtzeit is
this Motzaei Shabbos, Chaf Teives), that in virtue of “one mitzva
a person inclines himself and the entire world to the side of
merit, and brings to himself and to [the people of the world]
salvation and deliverance.

Adar Sheini: The Avoda Of Redemption
higher manner [of awaiting the coming of Moshiach] is that one’s
“I will await” and his “all day long we hope for” the
Redemption, which is felt every day in his service of “tazria,”
does not only amount to a Divine service that immediately results
in “that he should come,” but that the future Redemption and
the focus of his service will become one and the same thing.
For the coming of Moshiach is the outgrowth and hence, the
perfection of his “z’ria.”
