    Perhaps the use of a beged in the moshel is a hint

    To a prior time a beged was made for a son. Yakov Avinu made a special for his son Yosef as well. Maybe as a  Novi, the preeminent of the Avos, knew that this special garment for Yosef would lead to jealousy,  then to the sale of  Yosef and his imprisonment and rise to power in  Mitzrayim which itself lead to both the enslavement and  geula of  the his offspring,  the entire jewish nation and then to Har Sinai etc.

       I.e. The garment for Yosef was the triggering item to fulfill the promise of  Hashem to Abraham of the first golus and first geulal. So too the moshel of a garment should remind us of the final golus we are now in and the final geula, binharoo v'yamaynu!

    Question for Rabbi YY

    The Rebbe asks why the moshel of a garment which is disposable whereas the Beis hamigdash was a permanent structure. But, as we saw, unfortunately, so far both Botei Migdash were disposed of.
