For millennia the Jewish people have awaited the Moshiach. We have prayed for him and longed for his appearance. But how many of us know what part he will play in Jewish destiny, how to identify him, what the messianic era will be like, or why we need Moshiach at all?
Though a plethora of sources touch upon many aspects of the messianic era, the information is scattered throughout traditional writings and is thus very difficult to access. In this important and groundbreaking work, Rabbi Hershel Brand gathers together the teachings of the Sages on the subject and presents them in an illuminating and thought-provoking question-and-answer format.
Awaiting the Moshiach is one of the underpinnings of Jewish belief, one of Maimonides's thirteen principles of faith. On Eagles' Wings takes the lofty yearnings of the Jewish people and brings them firmly down into today's world.
