In memory of Rabbi Levi Yitzchok ben R' Zalman Yuda Deitsch OBM
Now is a time when we must light up the candles of the Jewish people. The cumulative legacy of all the positive activity of the previous generations is granted us and all that is necessary is to kindle the flame, making sure that it "rises up on its own accord." Although our generation is on a lower level than the previous ones, it is our generation that has the potential to elevate the service of all the previous generations. We will be the last generation of exile, and the first generation of the Redemption, and in this way, bring redemption to all the Jews of the previous generations.
(The Lubavitcher Rebbe, 19 Sivan, 5751-1991)
