Fortunate is the generation that has witnessed the renaissance of the Jewish spirit that is a harbinger of the Messiah who himself will personify both virtues – “meditating in the Torah and observing mitzvot like his ancestor David and fighting God’s wars” (Rambam, Hilchot Melachim 11:4). May we will all soon merit that day of complete redemption.
