Today, the 2nd of Adar I, marks 24 years to that horrific Thursday, the 2nd of Adar I 5752 (February 16 1992) when Mrs. Peshah Leah Lapine, HY”D, a mother to several small children, was brutally murdered in her apartment in Crown Heights, Al Kidush Hashem.
In a bitter and heartfelt Talk delivered on the day when her family got up from Shiv’va the Rebbe spoke with a broken voice of the greatness of being killed “al kidush hashem” and concluded with the importance of demanding from Hashem that the Redemption come immediately, when she will reunite with her children.
From the talk of Tuesday, the eve of Shabbos Kodesh, Shabbos Kodesh Parshas Titzaveh, the 7th, 10th and 11th of Adar Rishon, 5752:
This is essential, to cry to Hashem about the length of the golus, “Until when will we remain in golus”… and to beseech and entreat and do everything possible so that the true and complete Redemption through our righteous Moshiach will come imminently and immediately.
The Jewish people find themselves in golus already more than nineteen hundred years and our righteous Moshiach has still not come…!
All the Divine service of exile has already been completed, and we have already done everything in every way possible (including in particular the rejoicing of the month of Adar for sixty days). It’s unknown what else is to be done. Nevertheless, another week, another day, another moment has passed, and still the true and complete Redemption has not yet come in actual reality!
