(via L’ma’an Yishme’u)
It began like every other sicha (talk of the Lubavitcher Rebbe), elaborating on the uniqueness of the day and the lessons we may take from it. Suddenly the Rebbe's tone rose. The Rebbe began to speak with pain:
"How is it that the chassidim find it an option to remain in golus. After all the work the Rebbe has done, everyone is still apathetic. Ad mosai is said out of ritual, without any true feeling. We are still in galus - and more importantly - the personal galus in avodas Hashem. Perhaps ten persistent people, with guidance, will actually bring the geulah."
Here the Rebbe turned to the chassidim and pleaded: "I have done all I can, now you do all you can to bring moshiach now!"
