In our generation - the last generation of exile and the first generation
of Redemption - after the tremendous amount of "our efforts and Divine service"
of the Jewish people throughout all the previous years and generations, and
now even the last purification has been accomplished, now the main emphasis
must be first of all on completing, concluding and perfecting the Divine
service - to bring the "Gimmel" - the third stage of the true and complete
Redemption, in actual reality!
(From the talk of Tuesday night, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Shabbos
