Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Israeli Prime Minister Acknowledges Chabad's Role in the Unfolding of Jewish History.

Is Israel a nation-state like any other? Or are the Jewish people  “the chosen people” with a unique destiny among mankind?

In the Jewish liturgy, one of the most beloved passages is: “You have chosen us from among all the nations. You have loved us and found favor with us. You have raised us above all tongues and made us holy through Your commandments.”

Yet one of the early leaders of the Jewish state, David Ben-Gurion, suggested that this passage be deleted from prayer books.

In a recent videotaped message on the 200th anniversary of the passing of the Alter Rebbe, founder of Chabad-Lubavitch, the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, thanks the worldwide Chabad Lubavitch movement and its great Chassidic leaders for awakening the Jewish people after times of great travail, uniting them and strengthening them. He does not mention the special role of the Jewish people on the world stage nor the ultimate goal: the complete and final Redemption when all the world will acknowledge the G-d of Israel.
