Tapping into the power of Kislev as a group!
Rabbi Pinchas Winston:
"Considering what has to be done to turn the situation around in favor of the Jewish people and redemption, it is more than overwhelming.
There are so few people involved with the task, and they have very limited resources.
Naturally-speaking it would be logical to shelve the idea and focus on smaller and more practical goals at this time.
Not necessary, as the GR”A revealed:
The accounting is such that the miraculous aspect constitutes a higher percentage of the outcome than the other aspects. When it comes to deeds concerning the footsteps of Moshiach, especially deeds performed by the community, the Gaon maintained that Heaven’s miraculous help is far greater than the measure-for-measure account.
At times, the help of Heaven is 1,000 times greater. (Kol HaTor, Ch. 5:3)
The upshot of all of this? A few people can accomplish for redemption many more times than their natural ability should let them.
Limited efforts can have very dramatic results.
As the verse says:
The smallest shall become a thousand, and the least a mighty nation. I, God, will hasten it in its time. (Yeshayahu 60:22)
This says it all. A few people working on behalf of the Final Redemption will have the impact of a thousand people, if not more. More importantly, God
will turn their efforts into redemption, making sure that the Final Redemption not only comes, but that it comes on time."
Thank you for sending this Reitza Sarah!
