Nuggets from 770

Nothing happens in the world without some hint of it in Torah.

Let's take the date the Rebbe disappeared from Nature's landscape: Gimmel Tammuz, 5754.

The gematria of Gimmel Tammuz 5754 is found in Tanach one time - where the entire verse is taken into account: Beraishis 35, 21; "And Yisrael travelled, and pitched his tent (אהל) beyond Tower Eder."

One of the greatest sages ever, Yonatan Ben Uziel, wrote a commentary on Torah and the Prophets, revealing therein many secrets. Here is his rendition of this verse: "And Yakov moved, and pitched his tent beyond the Tower of Eder, a place wherefrom in the future King Moshiach will be revealed in the end of days."

Does this verse not capture the essence of the Rebbe?

[And if you'll allow me to splurge on a private interpretation: The Jewish leader of his flock (עדר) has moved (מסתלק) "beyond the אהל", where he'll again be revealed.]
