Question No. 2123

Date Posted 6 Oct 2014
The Question Respected Rabbi, I see clarification on the following issue: (1) Rabbi, the sheep and the wolf will dwell together in peace in Olam Haba! There will be no yetzer hara [evil inclination]. So what is your opinion on whether chidren will be born? (2) A child born is the product of the yetzer hara (evil inclination) and therefore this yetzer hara is indeed a blessing in that sense. Rabbi, please confirm ! —Elisha Shmuel, Israel

The Question Shalom Rabbi Leff, is there a pasuk in the Torah (excluding Nevi'im) that states explicitly that Mashiach is going to come and save the Jewish people someday? Furthermore, it is one of the 13 principles of Emuna to hope for his arrival (according to the Rambam at least) so why also don't we find a mitzva in the Torah for this? Seemingly if these were to have been written in the Torah the mitzva of hoping for Mashiach would carry much more weight among Jews. —RDG, London

The Question Is it true that non-Jews will be our slaves in the era of Moshiach? There are a number of statements in the Talmud to this effect: Shabbos 32b, Eiruvin 43b, etc. There are also statements by Saadia Gaon in the Emunoth ve-Deoth that appear to say the same. —Anonymous, Seattle, Washington

The Question Hello Rabbi! I'd like to know if it is your opinion and the opinion of mainstream Judaism that Moschiah must come by the year 6000? I have read elsewhere that that is what the Talmud states. So is this true and does this mean that there is a deadline for when Moschiah can come? —Vadim, Brooklyn, NY

Question No. 1433

Date Posted 16 Dec 2007
The Question Why is the Moshiach the focal point of the Redemption? When I think of the Redemption, I think of the Posuk that Hashem will circumcise our hearts and that there will be a global awaking to Godliness. And I think of the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem. And I think that of how there will be a King of Israel and he will be the Moshiach. But that seems to be just one part of the whole Redemption process. Yet it seems that Moshiach is THE goal. We sing "We want Moshiach!" not "We want Geula!" it seems like we, the Jewish people, are waiting for a person to come and save us from our exile. Shouldn't we have more focus on our waiting for G-d to do this? —Chaim, Amherst, MA

The Question I've heard that if all of Klal Yisrael would keep two (or maybe even one) Shabbos then Mashiach would come. Does that mean that for forty years in the desert someone was mechalel Shabbos every week? It seems like the Mekoshiesh was a one time event? Thank you. —Aaron, Ramat Beit Shemesh

The Question BS''D In one of your shiurim (I think the 'Yom Yerushalayim 5767'), the Rav explained that Hashem was testing us , to see if we were ready for geula. First, he tested us in America, to see if we were able to keep Torah and mitzvot there. Some pased the test and some didn't. Then he tested us with Eretz Yisrael, then with Yerushalayim and then with a small kibbutz galuyot. In each of these steps, some had passed the test and some hadn't. I was wondering, the fact that we were able to always go a step higher and closer to geula shelema, does it mean that we did passed the test, even though not all of klal Yisrael passed? Why would we be given higher tests to pass, if we would have failed the previous ones? Is it chessed from Hashem? Is it because the time has come for us to be completely redeemed? Thank you Rabbi Leff for your time. —Anonymous, Montreal, Canada

The Question I was searching for more insight from a Jewish perspective of the minor prophet Habakkuk, which is only three chapters in length. I am Christian, I never have read the whole Bible, especially the Old Testament as we call it. I was in prayer in the Spring of 1995 about what one could say was a modern day Moses on death row. Moses fled this man didn't, in what both likely defined as justifiable homicide. I thought that God could answer through His word and I prayed that He would lead me to His answer. Of which I opened to Habakkuk at "random." In this I immediately saw a description of what I perceived as a protester at an abortion clinic. I see the description of Roe V. Wade, the theory of evolution that denounces that there is a God, and if there is, then He is very weak. I don't accept that. It spelled out that this man that is more righteous than he shall be executed, that the judge will input this as his power unto his god. Which I believe that abortion is legalized human sacrifice, the shedding of innocent blood. The judgement of when life begins never was answered even to this day. I see even the destruction of the World Trade Towers. Tsunami's and mad cow disease. This prophecy is unfolding, and in the third chapter is the return of "God came from Te'-man, and the Holy One from mount Pa'-ran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise..." It's a more detailed description vs. the habitually used Book of Revelation by the mainstream Christians. I understand that the first Christians were Jews. Where are they now? I spoke to Rabbi Sol Serber of the Sons of Jacob Temple in Waterloo, Iowa, around the time after the cloning of Dolly the sheep. I was there for more insight into this prophet and his prophecy. He made an interesting comment, he said that when Christ returns he will talk to him first because he speaks his language. (I had only mentioned I am a Christian, I'm not out to change any

The Question Dear Rabbi Leff, shlita I am an orthodox Jew but do not think the Rebbe is moshiach ben dovid. But, I have a question, is it possible that the Rebbe could be moshiach ben Yosef? I heard that moshiach ben yosef will outreach to non jews, teach the penimious of Torah, and be killed in the war of gog and magog. Now, although the Rebbe died and was not killed, could it be that the war of gog and magog was a spiritual war and he was killed by the Sitra Achra? I heard that moshaich ben yosef comes before moshiach ben dovid and prepares the world for moshiach ben dovid. Thank you. —Chaya Tova, USA

The Question I have read a lot of the coming of the mashiach some things contradict like that the mashiach wont know he is the mashiach till Hashem tells him and then in another place it says that he volunteers the job to take up the suffering of bnei Israel cause of his love to his nation of not seeing one Jew suffering... someone with that knowledge doesn't know he is the chosen one? even before Abraham our father new he will be our father he knew that there is on g-d? and also what does it mean that the King David prayed for the mashiach to have a life? and also i read the King David was supposed to be a miscarriages but because Adam gave him 70 years of his life to David so will be the mashiach supposed to be a miscarriage but years of life were donated to him? and can the mashiach come after the Jewish year 6000. —Anonymous, New York

The Question LíKovud HaRav. I know that you get many questions about the possibility of a messiah that comes back from the dead. I know that the Rambam's words on the matter are always quoted; however, I heard a speech on the topic, which proclaimed that the words the Rambam used in regards to this matter, meant that the messiah can't be someone who has been "murdered". Therefore, death by natural causes is not necessarily rules out. That would discard the 2000 year old Jesus debate, as he WAS murdered, however again brings up the idea of someone like the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who was not murdered. The idea of coming back to life isnít that far-fetched as many believe that once meshiach comes, all of the dead will come back to life. I was just wondering what your views were about this, as when I heard the speech, I didnít know how to react. On a side note, I always have wondered, how do people like the Rambam know so much about what will happen in the times of mashiach etc, where does he get the information about things like this? Thanks for everything you do on this website, you are truly an inspiration. —benjamin, CT
