In memory of Rabbi Levi Yitzchok ben R' Zalman Yuda Deitsch OBM
On the verse, "Zion - there are none who seek her out," (Jeremiah 30:17) our Sages in the Talmud (Rosh Hashana 31a) comment, "This indicates that one should seek her out," implying that we must demand the Redemption. Similarly, we must seek out joy, including the ultimate joy, the joy of the Redemption. We must demand that G-d grant us the consummate joy of the Era of the Redemption.
