Moshiach: Teacher and King
19 April 2022
The Rebbe said this discourse on the last day of Pesach in 1965. The Haftorah for this day focuses on Moshiach, and the Chabad custom is to have a final meal in the late afternoon with Matza and four glasses of wine, a kind of repeat of the Seder, but relating not to the Exodus from Egypt in the past, but to the coming of Moshiach in the (immediate) future. The discourse is a fascinating discussion of the role of Moshiach as Teacher and as King. As King, he can communicate a deeper dimension of connection to the Divine.
