G-d, too, craves approval

Will we still mention the Exodus once we are in the period of Redemption?

The last Mishnah in the first chapter of Brachot appears in the Haggadah, telling us that we must mention the Exodus from Egypt every night (and we do that in the third paragraph of the Shema prayer)..

This is not the same as the mitzvah of reliving and retelling the Exodus at the annual Passover Seder, but is a daily requirement to mention the Exodus. 

But what happens when Redemption occurs?

After the Redemption, the Prophet Jeremiah says, we will thank G-d for bringing us back to the Land of Israel from the dispersion, praise Him for the Ingathering of the Exiles and for no longer being ruled by the nations, but the Sages said that in addition, we will still mention the Exodus from Egypt.

And Rabbi Gold has a special conclusion for our time to be reached from that fact

Rabbi Shalom Gold is a household name to Anglos in Israel. His love of and devotion to Eretz Yisrael has accompanied him throughout his entire life.since making aliya in 1982, he has built and served as the Rav of Kehilat Zichron Yoseph in Har Nof, and in 1984 founded the Avrom Silver Jerusalem College for Adults, which merged with the Israel Center in 2002, where Rabbi Gold, as Dean, is teaching Torah today.

For the past decades, Rabbi Gold has been at the forefront of the struggle for Eretz Yisrael. He was one of the founders of the Ichud Harabanim L’maan Eretz Yisrael V’am Yisrael , under the guidance of the Chief Rabbis Avraham Shapira z”l and Mordechai Eliyahu z”l.

His shiurim have been an inspiration to many, including the countless families whose decision to make aliya was a result of listening to “Rabbi Gold’s Tapes.”
