Gerrer Rebbe shlit'a: The Megilla of Geula

Gerre rebbe shlit'aThree weeks ago, I gave an emuna lesson entitled The Megilla of Geula, saying that all the events occurring today will come together to be one big Megilla, that of our final Geula, or redemption.

This morning, I heard from a close friend and a Gerrer Chassid who was with the Gerrer Rebbe shlit'a (image, left) on Purim, that the Gerrer Rebbe (Rabbi Yaakov Aryeh Alter shlit'a) said that we our now in the midst of the Megilla of Geula: in the original Yiddish, he said, Mir halt mitl arein in di Megilla fun Geula.

The Gerrer Rebbe shlit'a is a tzaddik of very few words.

Someone then asked the Rebbe, velechen perek, which chapter are we? The Rebbe didn't answer.

Anyone in Israel that can't smell the imminent Geula and the coming of Moshiach needs an ear, nose and throat checkup. Very big things are about to happen, as we see that the world is changing all around us.

The two keywords for navigating today's stormy waters are emuna and kedusha, faith and holiness. Very soon, all the amenities of this world won't be worth the skin of an onion.

Reb Lazer, I know that you're not a Gerrer Chossid, but it's a wonderful example of how you show respect for all the Gedoilei Yisroel. Yesher koiach!


Are all the Gedolim saying the same thing?

Scott Deutsch

I find this very encouraging - we are surely living in historic times

Lazer Brody

To Balabusta - yes, I've heard many say the same thing - Kabbalists, Lithuanian Rosh Yeshivas, Sephardi rabbinic leaders and other Rebbes


thank you rabbi. we really need this doses of spiritual strength you give us. i dont know how we will make by.


Who needs a Geulah without every single Jew? In the Purim story, every Jew is redeemed.

And Rabbi Dror promised that Moshiach will bring us home three gernations back, because in the holocaust we were hunted down three generations back. I'm counting on that promise.


I think we're between chapters 8-9 and Mordechai is the Tzaddik nistar, hidden Tzaddik of the genreation.

Thank you, Rabbi Brody. Very inspiring. Concise.
