    i believe so. others, whom may be called “anti-meshichists” have yet to learn that. but do you really think this lecture about “so is the rebbe moshiach” will turn around ppls minds in the matter? whats the right thing to be done (i wont go preaching my yechis, because i dont want to start up anything, but i truly believe that the right thing that should be done) is to get ready for moshiach, not to decide who it is. learn a sicha, help a friend, say a chapter of tehillim for someoen in need (just btw, talking abou that,… Read more »

    Once we’re on the topic, it’s obvious from studying Rambam and the Rebbe’s sichos, and speaking to Rabbi Groner and other people who have witnessed miracles that the Rebbe is surely moshiach.

    what he said
    Guest
    what he said

    1. He mumbled something like: every generation has a moshiach and in our generation the rebbe merited to be that one.

    2. The fact the he was the rebbe’s secretary does make his opinion important (like reb yoel, for example, who basis on the rebbe’s teaching and not day to day life)

    3. moshiach or not: the rebbe clearly wrote in a tzetil that the identity of moshiach is not the thing to focus on and that chassidim should try to bring him instead

    To 17 the rebbe was listening to the yechi adonanu moreinu vrabanu part (of you didn’t notice the rebbe had a stroke) and would never go back on the many times that he denied this hergush of Chassidim. Stop deciding who the rebbe is and let the rebbe make his own decisions. To 25 you obviously NEVER studied the RAMBAMS hilcous milochim

    RE: Is the Rebbe Moshiach?

    Were someone to ask me this question, the following is what I would answer: I would ask you to clearly define what you mean, particularly with the term “Moshiach”, but being that you asked the question this way, I’ll assume you know nothing of the subject, and will therefore address all the possible definitions. Esoteric definitions: Q: Is the Rebbe the leader of his generation (however you’ll define “generation”), who will eventually lead his generation towards Moshiach (the person), and lead them throughout the era of Moshiach? A: Yes. Q: Is the Rebbe a direct continuation of Moshe who is… Read more »

    Re: The Rebbe is currenhtly not accomplishing anything that would make the title Moshiach appropriate to him. As anyone who studies the Rambam knows, one of the jobs of Moshiach is to return Jews to Yiddishkeit. Several months ago, a friend’s daughter met a young women with tattoos who was working at Starbucks. When the friend’s daughter learned that she was Jewish and had gone to the local conservative day school, she naturally invited her over. It took a while, but the girl finally visited and eventually became comfortable with the family. One time, she request to visit the Ohel.… Read more »

    you dont have to be a mishechist to believe that the Rebbe is moshiach, its a give-in, its obvious!!! (or at least it should be)

    While that is a beautiful story (and thank you for sharing it), it obviously cannot fulfill the Halachic requirements necessary to identifying Moshiach.

    I can find you hundreds, if not thousands of stories like yours that happened at the Kvarim of many other Tzaddikim, yet I don’t hear anybody announcing that those tzaddikim are necessarily Moshiach because of these stories.

    If this story is your basis of believing that the Rebbe is Moshiach, then you have a very weak argument indeed.

    I would argue precisely the opposite: We already see the affects of believing that the Rebbe is still actively our leader. Namely, everyone does whatever the heck they want.

    If this is what we look like based on this belief, what will the next generation look like?! Especially since they are one more generation away from the holiness…

    honest question

    the rebbe says clearly in a simchas torah farbrengen (muge) the the nossi hador is moshiacah shebador and that it is to be taken literllary. also, many times in the sichas of 5751-2 the rebbe’s being of moshiach is hinted to strongly. Yet how does this fit in with the halachic status of moshiach according to the Rambam who says that if the “possible moshiach” died, he is not moshiach even though he may have been a great person. One cannot answer, that tzadikim are always alive, for the rambam brings an example of a tzaddik who was presumed to… Read more »

    “Moshiach Shebidor” literally means the person in any given generation who is fit to become Melech HaMoshiach. This manifests in two ways: 1. If Moshiach comes in that generation, the Moshiach Shebidor is assumed to become Melech HaMoshiach. 2. When Moshiach comes, every Moshiach Shebidor of every generation will lead his generation towards Melech HaMoshiach. Additionally, he will remain their leader throughout the duration of the era of Moshiach. Essentially, the Moshiach Shebidor will act as a connector between Melech HaMoshiach and his generation, much like separate Nesi’im were the connector between Moshe and their particular tribe.

    It is clear that you have not learned the sichos of nun alef, nun beis. All it takes is to act sit down and learn (in the rebbe’s words “derech yeshara” the str8 path to understent the concept of moshiach – learning about it.

    All that is clear is that you are as arrogant as you are ignorant. Your deflective statement is so useless, so presumptuous, yet used so widely, it’s downright repulsive. Get this straight: just because you understand something a certain way, it doesn’t mean that it is that way. You may have learned the sichos of which you speak, but I absolutely guarantee you do not understand them.

    I don’t see how you can just dismiss the biggest debate Lubavitch has ever had. There are those who believe that we must believe the Rebbe is Moshiach in order to bring Moshiach. Others believe that such a stance may hinder Moshiach’s coming ch’v.

    I think the conversation is very important. When your child asks you what we are supposed to believe, are you just going to say “it doesn’t matter!”, even though he sees people killing one another over the issue?

    You seem to be a bit confused. The only reason anyone ever claimed that the Rebbe is Moshiach is (not because it’s necessary to identify Moshiach), but because he fit the bill. If we conclude that the Rebbe is not currently Moshiach, then we revert to simply not knowing who Moshiach is, like most Jews throughout history.

    If you think that this is all about the need to identify Moshiach, you’re on the wrong planet.

    1)totell everybody the rebbe is moshiac and say yechi hamelech

    What in the world kind of crazy ideas and practices are you convincing yourself are absolutely true, directly contrary to numerous letters and stories of the Rebbe specifically asking people NOT to do so?

    I have an idea: why don’t you go back to the store from which you bought your brain and ask for a full refund, because it doesn’t work.

    After being zocheh to decades of the Rebbe’s leadership and open miracles, it is hard to imagine that there are those that feel the need to deny or even question that the Rebbe is Moshiach. After learning even some of the Rebbe’s and previous Rebbeim’s Sichos and Ma’amorim – one is not able to deny the obvious. However, this is also included in the amazing vision of our Rebbeim……see Hayom Yom- Yud-Bais Teves.” Even the great minds who are here must lay aside their intellects and not be ruled by their reason and knowledge…the essential thing in these times of… Read more »
