In all that has been said this year, what requires the most emphasis is what
the times require: the true and complete Redemption through our righteous
Moshiach. As has been said frequently of late, all the requirements have
already been completed and we only need to greet our righteous Moshiach in
actual reality. This will be hastened even more through learning Torah in
general, and in particular through learning all of the Talmud as divided
on Yud Tes Kislev, when the inner teachings of Torah were given. For through
"engaging in Torah study, etc."1 one realizes "Redeem my
soul in peace"2 - "A Redemption for me and my children
from the nations of the world,"3 through the true and complete
emancipation and Redemption.

Talmud for study, 19 Kislev - Sefer HaSichos 5752, p. 491)
