|Parallels Between Yaakov's Meeting With Eisav And The Days Of Moshiach|
Elchonon says that the meeting between Eisav and Yaakov upon Yaakov's
return to Eretz Yisroel is symbolic of the what will happen before the
coming of Moshiach. He says in the name of the Vilna Gaon that we see
a clear hierarchy of the various components of Klal Yisroel during this
meeting. The gemara says in Sanhedrin (97) that the generation
Moshiach will come in will be like the face of a dog, meaning that
Kavod HaTorah is at a low and is disgraced, while the empty ones will
be on top.
May the crown of Torah be restored to its former glory and may we rejoice in the coming of Moshiach!
