Open wound in good journalism.

By the grace of G-d
Shalom uBrocha!
Debra Nussbaum Cohen quoted me in her new article "Lubavitch’s Open Wound At 770"
While she did interview me over the phone few weeks ago:
"Rabbi Ariel Sokolovsky was among the men arrested Nov. 3. The Boston resident is an ardent messianist who visits 770 several times a year.

“I describe the rebbe as alive,” Rabbi Sokolovsky said in an interview. “The body of moshiach does not die, even if it appears to be so. A tzaddik [righteous person] can materialize himself in the world if he needs to. “Concealment does not mean that the rebbe has an invisible body,” he said. “It has to do with people’s readiness to see it. It’s people’s perception.”

Rabbi Sokolovsky said he has met people who have seen the rebbe in person since he died. "

It is just 1 quote from a half hour interview and a number of email exchanges. It doesn't convey the full meaning of my explanation to her about my understanding of the eternal life of Moshiach or the meaning of the statement that the body of Moshiach doesn't die.

If you have any questions about this please contact me for clarification.

With respect and blessing.
Ariel Sokolovsky
Long Live our Master our Teacher and our Rebbe King Moshiach Forever and Ever!
