The previous Lubavitch Rebbe, Rabbi Yoseph Yitzchak, wrote in his Letter to Jews Everywhere, 14 Iyar 5702/1942, the following. While it was written in 1942 I feel it is so relevant to our current days and time. While I am not Lubavitch, this is truly a timeless message for all Jews.
Every Jewish person who believes in G-d, the Holy Torah and in the words of the Al-mighty that He has transmitted through His holy prophets, can now clearly see that the terrible situation of Jews throughout the world [to an extent including even – America] represents the time of the birth-pangs of Moshiach ...
The great sage Rabbi Akiva says (Madras Rabba, Shemot 5, 12) that Jews are compared to birds. For just as a bird cannot fly without wings; so can the Jewish People not exist without their wings – their elders. For the One Above loves our elders and shows them much respect It was so at the time of the Egyptian Exodus, at the giving of the Torah, and so will it be at the time of the – soon to be, G-d willing – final redemption ...
The Rebbe therefore suggested that a group of scholars be chosen to recite the complete Tehilim every day, near the burial site of King David in Zion, Jerusalem, in order to "Lighten the birth pangs of (the time of) Moshiach; and for the good of Jews all over, that they shall merit to welcome the righteous Moshiach. I hope Daisy is back with some good news and an update on things at Kever Dovid HaMelech. IsraelTruthTimes
