first of all I deeply sense that we are all standing on the cusp of the climax of the ages.

I personally thank you Rav Katz for putting your heart on your sleeve and passionately advocating our lot through of all things, the “Tosofot,” a real kiddush through Talmud Yerushalmi.
One might say that you found Bava Metzia, however, I would say that Bava Metzia found you. As if to say that it has been there all along busting to be broken open and revealed.
The hope and consolation that HaShem has bestowed upon we who have dwelt in darkness and have been brought into the Light of Torah is beyond words and expressions of gratitude. For this has been HaShem’s Ratzon from the very beginning and we are humbled by His Mercy and Grace that endures for ever. If only we could fathom and appreciate its depths.

The ramifications and the implications are of profound importance in the unfolding of the Geulah and the breaking down of the barriers. As it says in Micah chapter 2 :

יב אָסֹף אֶאֱסֹף יַעֲקֹב כֻּלָּךְ, קַבֵּץ אֲקַבֵּץ שְׁאֵרִית יִשְׂרָאֵל–יַחַד אֲשִׂימֶנּוּ, כְּצֹאן בָּצְרָה: כְּעֵדֶר בְּתוֹךְ הַדָּבְרוֹ, תְּהִימֶנָה מֵאָדָם. 12 I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will render them all as sheep in a fold; as a flock in the midst of their pasture; they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.
יג עָלָה הַפֹּרֵץ, לִפְנֵיהֶם–פָּרְצוּ וַיַּעֲבֹרוּ, שַׁעַר וַיֵּצְאוּ בוֹ; וַיַּעֲבֹר מַלְכָּם לִפְנֵיהֶם, וַיהוָה בְּרֹאשָׁם. {פ} 13 The breaker is gone up before them; they have broken forth and passed on, by the gate, and are gone out thereat; and their king is passed on before them, and the LORD at the head of them.

This “breaker – poretz” is symbolic of Pertez ben Yehudah who broke forth from the womb of Tamar bat Shem ben Noach, the wife of Yehudah’s affair with harlotry / yivum. The union of Yehudah and the B’nei Noach / Gerim produces the breakthrough. I am trembling with anticipation at this incredible moment in history. As the Midras says :

The tribes were involved in Yosef’s sale.
Yosef was immersed in mournful thoughts about his separation from his father.
Reuven in involved in repentance for his sin.
Yaacov was mourning for Yosef.
Yehudah was busy taking a wife.
and….all the while these events were taking place, HaShem was preparing the light of Mashiach.

People tend to be busy with their own affairs, thinking that they direct the course of human events. But in all reality, it is HaShem who guides history from above, directing the outcome of all events to the ends He desires.

Well said Joe and I concur this is of profound importance in the unfolding of the Geulah and the breaking down of the barriers. To Life!
