Making True Aliyah: Without Airline Tickets

We should immediately see in actuality the fulfillment of the words of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai "when they will be redeemed in the future the shechina is with them" [...] and then our guests [from Israel] won't need to arrange return flights to the Holy Land with all of the effort involved, since everyone will come together "with clouds of heaven" to our holy land, and in our holy land itself ascend to Yerushalayim the holy city, and to the Beis Hamikdash (higher than all places) and in the Beis Hamikdash itself we ascend "to the top of the mountain" until we become "bnei aliyah" [the level of Rashbi, and through him it is drawn down to every Jew], as the true place of every Jew is "in the highest place" (b'aliyah) in the Bais Hamidash--in the Holy of Holies.

Sicha of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Erev Lag B'Omer 5750
