Jewish Women and the Final Redemption
"In the merit of the righteous women our ancestors were redeemed from Egypt." – Talmud, Sotah 11b
“The generation of the final Redemption is a reincarnation of those who left Egypt.” – Arizal, Shaar HaGilgulim, Hakdamah 20
“The writings of the Arizal explain that the generation of the future Redemption is the reincarnation of the generation that went out of Egypt. Accordingly, the righteous women of our generation, in whose merit we will be redeemed, are the same righteous women in whose merit we left Egypt.” – The Rebbe, Parshas Beshalach 5752
Jewish women and girls, we are very important in the final Redemption.
The Rebbe tells us that it is our belief and our courage that will persuade our people to believe in the Rebbe’s prophecy and to follow up that belief with ACTION.
Our connection with holiness is higher than reason. This level of faith is what’s required now…to trust in revelations that are higher than understanding.
Here’s one way to bring faith into ACTION: the proclamation "We are in the Geulah, here,now, literally," or "I agree we are in the true and complete Redemption in actuality," said every morning after Modeh Ani," (based on the Rebbe's talk of 28 Sivan 5751).
It's so exciting! Our women's movement to fulfill the Lubavitcher Rebbe's heartfelt request for every Jew to agree, desire and proclaim that "we are in the Geulah here, now, literally!"* reached its first milestone with the submission to the Rebbe's secretary - Rabbi Leibel Groner - of the names of 179 Jewish women and girls who agreed to make the Rebbe's proclamation every morning after Mode Ani.
Women responded from Israel to Brooklyn to Australia!
But it's just the beginning. We now need each of you - our core group - to help us unfurl the full potential of this women's initiative. As you know, it's such an easy and pleasant way to begin the morning. If you woke up cheek-to-cheek with your worries, this proclamation (when said with enthusiasm) blasts those worries away!
More important, it gives us the opportunity from the first moment of the day to sync our outlook on life with the Rebbe's broader vision. The Rebbe explained that this proclamation makes the Jew a partner with H-shem in realizing the full Geulah, and that H-shem needs (so to speak) our participation and H-shem needs us to make this proclamation! (See the Rebbe's quote below.)**
Please, Jewish sisters, this is just the beginning. Rabbi Groner smiled broadly when he accepted our names, but he asked, "Why not more?"
Today - even now - please send this resolution to five more Jewish women! As you know, the Arizal and other great Jewish sages explained that Jewish women have been the force behind every revolution for the good in the history of our people. Let's use our amazing power once more to change the world's consciousness - one woman at a time.
Every Jewish woman who wants to join our initiative (by saying the Rebbe's proclamation every morning) should respond to info@GeulahGeneration.com and send in her Hebrew name and her mother's Hebrew name. (Secular first names are okay if Hebrew names aren't available.)

Other variations of the declaration:
We are in the Geulah already, actually! (free translation, English)
ישנה כבר הגאולה בפשטות Yeshna Kvar HaGeulah b'Pashtus! (free translation, Hebrew)
ס'איז שוין דא די גאולה בפשטות' iz shoin daw d'Geulah b'Pashtus! (the original Yiddish
**The Rebbe's holy words, 28 Sivan 5751
A Jew with his body and soul simply becomes a partner with Hashem in a manner of unification in all Hashem's aspects, including and especially in bringing the true and complete redemption. In order for Hashem to accomplish this in its entirety, He needs (so to speak) the participation of every single Jew, specifically as a soul within a body. It is through our deeds and work that the Redemption comes, and it is needed, so to speak, that a Jew should agree and want and even more so, that he should desire and proclaim, --not just that the time of the Redemption has arrived, but that the redemption is actually here.
