Lchatchila Ariber - Vayigash
Today I was listening to a song called Lchatchila Ariber. Both the tune and its name are attributed to the Rebbe Maharash who always used to relate that "The world says, 'If you can't crawl under an obstacle, try to climb over,' but I say, at the outset, climb over!"
In this week's parsha, Yaakov went down to Mitzrayim with 70 relatives. Before leaving, Hashem came to Yaakov in a dream. In this dream, Hashem promised that He would accompany him to and from Mitzrayim.
We must understand that life is full of obstacles. However, no matter where we go, Hashem is always right there. Whether it's in Beer Sheva or Mitzrayim, we need to continue our shlichus to transform the world and bring Moshiach! Hopefully this week we can jump the final obstacle of Golus and feel the geulah fully! L'chaim!
All the best!
