This is our promise from Hashem, who sees all our suffering and counts all our tears.
This Shavuos, as we re-accept the Torah, let us do so knowing that soon the Long Night will be over and the Dawn of Redemption will burst forth with the rebuilding of the Beis HaMikdash and the coming of Mashiach ben David, the descendant of Ruth. May we see it soon in our days.
