Chabad's beliefs about Moshiach (especially the way these are presented by many inspirational speakers and the like) are often NOT in sync with most other traditional Jewish views.

OK, well I guess what I am waiting and yearning for is the geulah shleima does anyone disagree with that?

We all should pray for that! :)

But as I mentioned before, hoping and praying for the ultimate redemption should include living in the now, and working on ourselves.

Have a good Shabbos!

Hi Enora, maybe the reason I do that is because I remember once learning in Chabad that the beginning and the end of the geulah may come simultaneously if I understood correctly.

Shavua tov
I wouldn't know what chabad says. We don't have them in town anymore. In fact they were requested to leave town... lol
I think it's better to focus on what we DO agree upon (there's a lot of that!), for the sake of discussion, since I think, most of us on the board aren't chabadniks.

I am not exactly Chabad myself either but I enjoy both the Chabad and Breslov approach to Judaism. I have a chevruta with someone to learn Chitas sometimes etc. What are some examples of things that everyone can agree with?

Forgive me but as an outsider to the Jewish faith I do not understand some of the terminology. Are you speaking of the Jewish "messiah"?

Shalom, yes I think we were discussing the Jewish Messiah a bit. Do you consider yourself to be a Bnai Noah?

I'm sorry I understand very few Jewish terms. Being Barmitzvah Bratmitzva (sp?). Goyim, Shalom and Torah. I think that is the extent of my understanding of the termonology in the Jewish faith
