"When a Jew arrives at a particular place, it is for the purpose of doing a mitzvah, be it between man and man or between man and G-d. A Jew is an agent of G-d Above, and wherever an agent is, he derives his power from the Sender."


This teaching can be illustrated with a Chassidic tale about Moshiach's donkey. The prophet Zechariah describes Moshiach as "a pauper, riding on a donkey."


On a deeper level, Moshiach's donkey represents the essence of the messianic process: a process that began with the beginning of time and which constitutes the very soul of history. Moshiach represents the divine spirit of creation - the vision of the perfected world that is G-d's purpose in creating it.


Just as Moshiach's donkey carries him towards his ultimate goal, so too do we carry out our divine mission in this world. We are agents of G-d, sent to fulfill His will and bring about the ultimate redemption. By recognizing our role as agents of G-d and carrying out our mission with humility and devotion, we can hasten the coming of Moshiach and the realization of G-d's ultimate vision for the world.
