Still Waiting

On Rosh Hashana, the kings and rulers of all nations are standing before the Heavenly Court, anxiously waiting to hear the judgement of their nation. Moshiach, too, is standing there, hoping that in the coming year the complete redemption will come to pass, and the Jewish people will at long last be freed from golus.

When the verdict is read that the Jewish people did not merit to be redeemed, Moshiach leaves the Court, ashamed and deeply embarrassed, while all the gentile rulers taunt and ridicule him.
