The Messiah is “standing at the doorway” and it is up to each one of us to usher in his arrival, a leading spiritual leader of the Jewish nation was quoted as saying. Rabbi Chizkiyahu Mishkovsky, the spiritual adviser for several distinguished yeshivot (religious learning centers) in Israel, told a gathering at a Lev L’Achim event in Bnei Brak in April, speaking in the name of Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, the arrival of the Messiah is close.

“My dear brothers, I would like to tell you something very interesting. One of those who is very close and dear to Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky came to me recently and said that Rabbi Kanievsky told him to go out and tell the people, ‘We are in one of the most critical hours for the nation of Israel. We are on the threshold of the Messiah, and the Messiah is standing just outside the door, and the only way to be saved is through learning Torah, and through works of loving kindness.’” FULL REPORT
