Kibutz - gather the very distant

Rabbi Nachman and Rabbi Nussun stressed the critical importance of the Kibutz - gathering together. In Likutay Halachos (laws of procreating 1:5:4) Rabbi Nussun points out that an 'asifa' which refers to similar people getting together, is not sufficient. Kibutz requires that the very distant and removed gather together. Decidedly those that are on the brink of complete loss and abondon must be united under the True Tzadik (in par. 9 Rabbi Nussun says, those that completely resemble the gentiles, and also gentile who have converted). The charlatan tzadikim who try to gather people under them are not capable of truely doing this, and thus as in the case of Zimri, terrible results are effected.
Only Na Nach Nachmu Nachmun MayUman can bring the proper and required Kibutz!
