Other Peteks

  1. Gemara Yoma 69: "A Letter fell to them from Heaven, and it was written in it: Truth."
  2. Gemara Baba Metzia 86: At the death of Rabba bar Nachmani a Petek fell from Heaven to explain to them how to bury him and how to mourn for him. Two more Letters fell from Heaven for the same reason.
  3. Mishna Berura 51:1: The prayer "Baruch She'amar" in the morning prayers was established because of a Petek that fell from Heaven, upon which were written the words of the prayer.

The late Yosef Matof of Ebay Ha Nachal passed away three years ago on 9th of Kislev. He left two post-humous messages. One in time por Purim and the other for Pessach- That year Lag Ba Omer was celebrated at Ebay as a result.
I have posted one of the notes on facebook under Ebay Ha Nachal.
For more details and to see the notes you have to spend shabbos here.
If you are "afraid" stay home!

Rabbi Yisrael Baal Shem Tov recieved a petek as well.

One year there was opposition against the Baal Shem Tov and there we those who were saying the Baal Shem Tov's Sukkah was not kosher.

The Baal Shem Tov prayed and cried to Hashem and placed his head in his hand and when he lifted his head he saw in his hand a petek written on a klaf, and it said "Sukkah shel Rabbi Yisrael Baal Shem Tov Kasher, Mem-Tet-Tet Sar HaPanim"

The Degel Machane Efraim had this Petek and for 2 years no one in the town was lost or kidnapped, everyone who was sick was healed, and then a Bat Kol told him that he must get rid of the Petek because no one could die with this Petek, and so he prayed to Hashem and got rid of the Petek.
