What does REDEMPTION mean?
Geulah, Hebrew for “redemption,” is often used in Jewish liturgy to refer to the future Messianic age.

וַיִּנָּ֣חֶם יְהֹוָ֔ה כִּֽי־עָשָׂ֥ה אֶת־הָֽאָדָ֖ם בָּאָ֑רֶץ וַיִּתְעַצֵּ֖ב אֶל־לִבּֽוֹ׃

Description about REDEMPTION
Geulah, Hebrew for “redemption,” is often used in Jewish liturgy to refer to the future Messianic age. It expresses the fundamental Jewish belief that the problems of our world and the ills of human society will one day cease to exist and belief in God and knowledge of God will spread throughout the world. The Talmud compares geulah to the morning dawn and rising of the sun. At first, it is a very slow process and one may not notice that the darkness is turning into light. Eventually, though, the light shines more and more powerfully, until it is apparent to all that the morning has come. The first geulah mentioned in the Bible was God’s promise to free the Israelites from their bondage in Egypt, as it says, “I will redeem you with an outstretched arm” (Exodus 6:6). This promise extends to future generations as well, promising that all future periods of oppression will eventually end as well. As the prophet Isaiah says, “He shall come as redeemer to Zion, to those in Jacob who turn back from sin, declares Hashem” (59:20). The Bible frequently uses the word geulah to refer to the redemption of lands that are sold by its owner, often to pay off a debt. The person in debt, or their family member or friend, is only permitted to redeem the land within a certain time period. With the Jubilee year, however, all lands were returned to their original owners by force of Biblical law, which demonstrated that ownership of land is ultimately determined by God.
