All Jews believe in the coming of Moshiach, yearn for him with a crushed spirit and anxious eyes, and wait expectantly for his imminent arrival. In addition, as Anash, Chassidei Chabad, we follow the ways of the Rebbeim, binding themselves totally to the Nasi of the Generation by learning his Torah, fulfilling his directives, and carrying out his programs and activities;
Therefore, all of us, as one man with one heart, stand firmly on an unshakable foundation: a pure belief that the true and complete Redemption will occur in our generation, and not a statement of his in this regard will remain unfulfilled.
Furthermore, all of Anash, as one man with one heart, believe, acknowledge and are witness to the fact that our Rebbe, the Nasi of our generation, continues to guide us in all facets of life, while at the same time directing us to the true and complete Redemption in actuality.
Hence, as one man with one heart, we now come together with a united desire and cry that emanates from the depths of our hearts, “How much longer?”
We do not accept in any way the current situation, in which leadership occurs in a manner of concealment. We want to see our King before us with our physical eyes in this material world, leading us among all of Israel and the entire world, building the Holy Temple in its place, gathering the dispersed of the Children of Israel, and ultimately rectifying the entire Earth to serve Hashem.
Hence all of us, as one man with one heart, express through this missive our renewed dedication to the Rebbe: to perform all he instructed us with self-nullification beyond intellect, emotion or personal will, to fully achieve his shlichus in bringing the true and complete Redemption: through his Ten Mitzvah Campaigns, through strengthening Torah and all matters regarding Judaism, through spreading the wellsprings of Chassidus. With particular and immediate urgency, we devote ourselves to studying Torah related to the Redemption and Moshiach, publicizing the prophecy that “behold Moshiach has come,” and preparing the Jewish people to greet Moshiach by explaining and teaching these topics to every man and woman.
His holy words presented in the well-known talk of 2 Nissan, 5748, declared “There needs to be an action coming from the people to proclaim Yechi Melech (‘Long live the King!’); for the idea expressed in this declaration is that we have reached the time when those who lie in the dust will awake and sing, and among them, my father-in-law, our Rebbe, the leader of our generation, as well as up to and including, David King Moshiach.”
Based on the above, we, among tens of thousands of Jews the world over, declare as one person with one heart, proclaiming from the depths of our very being: “Long live the King!”
May our prayerful request, our heartfelt and determined cry immediately influence the Holy One, Blessed be He, to uplift and grant strength to our King Moshiach, and then the Kingship of the world will be G-d’s. May we merit to immediately and literally see the king in his glory, and he will redeem us!
