Bringing Moshiach

25.01.19

Question

If hypothetically the Redemption is coming, what would be / would there be, a point of doing work to make the world better (ie. finding cure for cancer, improving justice system, working on public parks and infrastructure) ?

Answer

To the Questioner, 

The times of Mashiach will be charactarized with Understanding as it says: "And the land will be filled with the Understanding" (Yeshayahu 11:9).

Therefore the preparation for that time is for one to better understand themselves according to how the Torah and the 613 Mitzvos explain. To truly understand oneself is the key to our understanding of G-d - since G-d's Presence dwells within us.
