The Talmud writes that when a person leaves the world, in the Heavenly courts (s)he is asked, "Did you yearn for the redemption?". It could be that we are doing good deeds, helping, caring, praying, etc. and yet, are we connecting these to bringing the redemption?

Yearning is not a passive concept, rather an active factor that can play a huge role in our lives, if we believe in the power that it has. Maimonides quotes that a person should "wait for (the Mashiach) every day...", even though he tarries.

Even more so, the Chid"a (Rav Chaim Yosef David Azoulay ztz"l, one of the big last century kabbalists) says that even if the People of Israel only have the element of yearning for the Redemption, it is enough to bring it!...

So ask yourself: What have I done today to hasten the redemption? If every one of us takes upon him/herself one small action, an active yearning to hurry it, then they will add up to thousands, millions of petitions for the Almighty to bring the Mashiach.

So other than signing the petition, please write a small description of one action you're taking upon yourself: Praying, a good deed, learning Torah, doing mitzvoth, stopping slander, making peace with an old acquaintance, etc. (in the "comments" window)

Hopefully we will have the merit of the coming of the real Mashiach, speedily, today!
