There is a letter in Ebay Ha Nachal that says that the recitation of these three psalms allows the reader to distinguish the divine spark (nekouda tova) in each person and (since this is the point of emes) become humble.
Trust in the power of King David and Rabbi Na Nach and soon Rabbenu's unique utterly holy and unblemished remains will be buried on Har Tzion, ending Paganism and beginning Humanity.
PzPzYk is "Melamed schout" (learning/teaching merit) on everyone on Rosh Hashana, or as I heard someone say, Saba called Zalman Chazar (Israel's first minister of education) Hanoch (from teaching- also the great teacher who invented faith in G-d and became the angel PzPzYk)
This is directly related to the revelation of these Psalms in his book!
There are 1 000 available. With this card a volonteer can collect signatures 50 per blank page ( regular, A4 format).
This is the picture people can study before signing! A child can do this too!
B"H To-ron-to (which previously we have explained signifies singing the song of four, that is Na Nach Nachmu Nachman Meuman) has begun to blossom Nanach sticker all over, in stores and on the street. B"H we will try to provide some pictures soon.

When Rabbainu was a child sometimes he would say all the verses in Tehilim that are supplications. Some one gave me a pamphlet in which they attempted to select from Tehilim only those verses that are supplication to facilitate those who desire to emulate Rabbainu. Every time I was warming up to try it out I was offset by miniyos. Finally last week I actually started to pray from this pamphlet, but I didn't get very far, after a few pages I gave in to an urge to go to sleep. While asleep I had a dream which I don't recall exactly but the main idea was that I had prayed on Sucos without saying halel with the lulav. The shaking of the Lulav is a symbol of our victory (Zohar quoted by Rabbainu), as is Halel, the thanking of H"Y for all that He has done for us. These are the exact things that I was ommitting and not recognizing by just praying the supplications of the Tehilim. In fact Rabbainu (Likutay Moharan Tora 2) says that prayer is composed of two parts; a, praising and thanking G-d, b, asking ones needs. Rabbi Nussun expounds at great length how the two are dependent on each other.

Just to remind everyone, this month, Nissan, the month of redemption, begins with a Nun kifufa (bent letter nun) and ends with a Nun pishuta (straight) - exactly like Nachman - Rabbainu, and Na Nach Nachmu Nachman Meuman!

"It was on the eighth day (from the beginning of the Kehuna training) that Moshe called Aharon, Aharon's children and the elders of Israel". For when a Tzadik needs to call for the heads of the nation, he calls them by setting up the Mishkan, for that is where the honor is. He calls them through this, for they all come to receive the honor from him. And this is "on the eighth day" of Moshe setting up the Mishkon, and through this, "Moshe called for Aharon, Aharon's children,a and the elders of Israel" - for they include the heads of the people - from small to big, for through setting up the Mishkan, he called for the heads of the people, who are the aspect of Aharon and his children, etc.
This is what our Rabbis of blessed memory said (Mishna Rosh Hashana 1:1) that Nissan is the Rosh Hashana for kings, for it was at that time that the Mishkon was set up, for from there was the honor of kings of all the appointees and heads spread. Therefore, the setting up the Mishkon (for once and for all, not to be taken apart again at the end of the day) was accomplished specifically on Rosh Chodesh Nissan, for this is the aspect of Rosh Chodesh, for it was through this that all of the heads were renewed (as Rosh Chodesh literally means New Head). This is the aspect of Rosh Chodesh Nissan which is the Rosh Hashana for kings.
HaNosein Tzedaka: One who gives Tzedaka is saved from Aveiros. For anyone who has mercy on Hashem's creatures, Heaven has mercy on him/her (Shabbos 151b), while it is forbidden to have mercy on one who has no knowledge (Berachos 33). And since Heaven has mercy on him, it has to be that Heaven gives him knowledge, and thus such a person is saved from coming into the clutches of sin, for one does not sin unless a spirit of foolishness has entered him/her (Sotah 3), but when one has knowledge, he/she is saved from Aveiros. Amen, So may it be His will (Part 1:116)
Eesah BaGemara: See in the Gemara - (Rabbi Nechunya Ben HaKana was asked)
"In what merit did you live a long life?" The rabbi answered "I was easy going with my money". (Megillah 28a). As per what it says in the Zohar HaKadosh (Naso 123), there is no good but Torah (Avoda Zara 19b). When one wants to be immersed and think in Torah, meaning in the secrets of the Torah, there are "snakes and scorpions" that confuse his thoughts - these are the thoughts that come to a person. When a person wants and desires spirituality very much, and Hashem opens up the way for him, as mentioned in this piece of Zohar, then every day is by him very great, for he sees and comprehends the hidden goodness, meaning the secrets of the Torah that is connected with that particular day.This is what the Tana asked: "In what merit did you live a long life?" Meaning, in what particular characteristic did you enter the hidden goodness, by which you lengthened your days that they should be great (as mentioned above). The rabbi answered him "I was easy going with my money". This was the characteristic of Avraham Avinu, and it is the gate that is called Love, which is the right side. As stated in Tikunei Zohar (Tikun 70): "From the right side is the white part of the brain like money". Meaning, that all of the accusers and "snakes and scorpions", meaning, the foreign thoughts that confuse one's mind, become white like money. And so it says regarding Avraham (Bereishis 24) "Now Avraham was old, well on in years" (NOTE: This is part of a Posuk that is a Minhag to say on Rosh Chodesh immediately following Hallel), meaning that all of his days were complete and great, for the right side is the white part of the brain that is like money, and the accuser becomes the defender, and Avraham was able to come every day to the hidden goodness that he was connected with. (Part 1:84)
B"H today I had a givald shmooz with YA"L, there were great novelties discussed and revealed, amongst other things YA"L said that in Lawrence, N.Y. he found only one one-way street, running from Sutton to Lord!!!!

Ebay is a "kilometer" away from Male Amos, but that's besides the point...I want to suggest that the 4 Amos Rabbenu is reffering to, is the erea his body takes in the grave. The victory he is reffering to, is not that of Napoleon offering the land of Israel to a jewish nation at the expense and glory of the French Republic. The victory is that which could take place, much like the splitting of the Sea of Reeds, when the tomb of Josef came forth.
Bury Rabbenu in Eretz Israel, and let's really celebrate for Pesach!
Shimon M. by pure "coincidence" planted the tree we named Nachman-Shimon. I had planted about 60 almond trees and when Shimon showed up, I told him to pull the next plant out of it's milk carton and put it in the hole that was ready for it. It wasn't an almond tree, it was a Carob tree. This Carob tree is two year old and comes from a seed I collected with Yosef Matof ztl. it has 14 brothers and sisters. The father and mother can be seen from Ebay Ha Nachal on a mountain topping an ancient dam blocking the wadi which further down becomes Ein Gedi. Yosef told me the "couple" is mentioned in the Gemarra and in the British colonial records (or Turkish?) as a landmark since they were the only trees in this whole deserted Judean Hill erea. Since the destruction of the second temple this couple of trees have been mostly alone out here until finally today, their children found a home in Ebay Ha Nachal, after 2000 years! THAT's patience- but to have children in the "gan egoz" 2000 years to wait is worth it!
Oh and when I finished a very hard days work and was putting away my tools I saw a sun bleached card on the ground. I picked it up, and recognized a petek-saba Israel card that once had been hanging in the heart shaped house I built here. I guess one of Saba's ways of saying thank you.
B"H great light has descended upon Toronto, the light of our Master Na Nach Nachmu Nachman Meuman, B"H we are doing amazing hafatza, Uzi, Airan, Aron, myself, and some others (like Yisroel Gottlieb and family!).

This timing in Rabbeinu's period of his life was most significant, as it is known that also shortly after his Bar Mitzva, he got married, and it was at his Chasuna that he received his first Talmid whose name was Shimon (like mine). Perhaps the fact that the challenge of the sun appearing signifies the conditions under which Rabbeinu started his Avodas Hashem of Breslov combating the forces of evil, but it takes strong willpower to SHINE without giving up hope.
Isn't it significant that the very Siman given at the end of the Chumash for its total of 5,845 Pesukim is the word HaChama? Hey=5 Cheis=8 Mem=40 Hey=5. Remove the zero, put the numbers together, and presto - 5845. Well, Rabbeinu's name Nachman works the same way, except it's the Noon instead of the Hei - you just have to remove the extra zeros, and put the same numbers together.
Also, the date of that particular Bircas HaChama fell out on the Yahrzeit of Yehoshua Bin NOON.
And Yehoshua had the spiritual power during his lifetime to stop the sun (and moon) from moving in the midst of a battle he was having so he could have daylight to be able to finish the battle.
Finally, the event of the Bircas HaChama in Rabbeinu's lifetime was the beginning of its 199th cycle. The word Tzedaka is the Gematria of 199. Indeed, Hashem did a tremendous spritual Tzedaka bringing Rabbeinu into this world; because without Rabbeinu, chances are is that today there would be many less Nefashos being saved spiritually. And the only Tzadik that ever made a guarantee of performing "an eternal kindness" for another following his Petira was Rabbeinu.
Sunday, March 22, 2009
See Likutei II 67 where Rabbeinu actually talks about Shem Betzalel, that when he, the Tzaddik's, name is revealed and magnified then our eyes are opened and we can see our midot, and that's why the verse in Exodus 35:30 says "See, that the LORD has called b'shem Betzalel," for Hashem's name is entwined with his, ki shemo meshutaf bishmeinu (Joshua 7 and Rashi there, etc.), and when his name is magnified then Hashem's name is magnified, etc.
You have to add 1 to NA NACH NACHMA NACHMAN (1=hashem echad?) to get 355 (it seems the Petek teaches us to add the kollel, for it indicates PZPZYH=355 and without the 1 then NNNN is only 354) and add 1 to MEUMAN to get 138, for the total 493.
I told this to someone at Breslov Shul in Boro Park this morning and he said SHEM BETZALEL -- the name in the shadow (like ACHORAYIM(!)) of God.
Chodesh Tov, Chodesh Nanach!

Elderly people who witnessed the event told me that there was amazing Providence involved, for those who were meant to be injured, even though they were far away from the upheaval, were injured, and those who were meant to be spared, even though they were very close at hand, were saved. They also told that at the time of the dancing, before the earthquake hit, an unidentified Jew danced with the people, and from time to time he would switch hats with the dancers, and there were many who wanted to switch hats with him in the joyous spirit of the moment, but he did not agree to it. He would only switch hats with one he chose with whom to switch. Afterwards they saw that each one who had switched hats with him, even though they had been in the greatest danger, survived. And for his part, he disappeared, and no one knew anything about him.
The community interpreted the disaster as a Divine rebuke for the mixing of men and women and the sexual immodesty during the event, and due to this the people and the Rabbis of Tzfat convened a major meeting, and passed a decree banning women and girls from being in Meron, or even being on the road from Meron to Tzfat, on Lag b’Omer or the day before it. So women would start coming to Meron several days before the holiday, and the day before the eve of Lag b’Omer they would return home, and during these two days – the day before Lag b’Omer and Lag b’Omer itself, not a single woman could be seen in Meron, nor on all the road between Meron and Tzfat. The ban lasted five years, and I heard that nobody was willing to stand up and pass the decree upon the community, except for Rabbi Israel Karduner of Breslov Chassidism, who stood up before the community in awe and fear of G-d, and declared the ban in the name of the Rabbis.
There were many who opposed the ban, and claimed that the world war that broke out afterwards was in consequence of women being denied to come to the grave of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai to plead on behalf of the Jewish People. They also claimed that all the rabbis who had a part in the ban, including Rabbi Karduner, did not live long after this matter.
But in any case, no one dared to trespass the ban, and they waited five years, and only then women began to come to Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai’s grave on Lag b’Omer.
Who can know what harsh judgments on the Jewish People were annulled by this decree? For it is known that the tzaddikim suffer on behalf of the Jewish People. Also our Breslover friends told us that in the same year there was also a fire at the grave of Rabbi Nachman in Uman. May it be G-d’s will to guard the Jewish People in the merit of the tzaddikim, amen.
Rebbe Nachman was makpid on Halacha and everyone try to go in his way, sometimes we fall but we get up because we never loose the path of Hashem of the holy tzaddik Rebbe NaNach Nachma Nachman meuman
A big Hello to DR.STEVE NaNach we all wish him a happy and healthy upcoming Peasach NaNach

Many submerse in the mikve and extract a finger and reinsert it over and over again until they have achieved the desired amount, this is based on the fact that ones entire body must be submerged so every time the finger is extracted and reinserted it is like a completely new immersion. This Purim I read a book, Toldos Menachem, according to the author it is not sufficient to just extract and reinsert a finger, he asserts that the main rectification is bringing ones head into the water.
In the Bezenson's new book about Nanach and if I recall correctly in Chayay Yisroel Saba it says that the Saba, the precious student of Rabbainu, Rabbi Israel Dov Odesser, would do 310 immersions every day, each immersion he would stay submerged for a long time, thus the immersions would take a few hours.
The main thing is to concentrate on the holy name Na Nach Nachmu Nachman Meuman which in and of itself is the highest mikve (see Likutay Moharan Tora 56).
כל מבקש = נ נח נחמ נחמן מאומן (ע"ה
(it is also in this Parsha (32:32) it says ואם אין מחני נא מספרך which reads left to right אני נחמן and the acronym is מאומן!).
My father suggested that this may be the root of the different color yarmulkas - beanies (אהל - roof, also can mean light, and it can also refer to hovering over ones head, as it is said בהלו נרו עלי ראשי)!
Maybe we should try to make the designer Nanach beanies out of white goats wool.

This is the work of some of our dear Israeli Nanach who are bringing Nanach to Hollywood. Entertainment is the fallen field of the Tzadik, and Nanach will restore and rectify even and especially all entertainment, teaching everyone to enjoy the holiness of God.

In any case, the fact that is was none other than Rabbi Moshe Feinstein who had the great Zechus of being the one to give the Haskama, shows his Gadlus in Torah and Tzidkus in his own right. Being born on 7 Adar, the birthday of Moshe Rabbeinu, and thus was named after him, he said of himself that this had an influence on him to apply himself to the Torah as he did.
He was the Rosh Yeshiva of Mesivta Tiferes Yerushalayim for nearly half a century. Saba had mentioned about the significance of Yerushalayim as it relates to the Shir Chadash of Na Nach Nachma Nachman Meuman. The Gemara in Berachos 58a mentions an interpretation of Tiferes as refering to Matan Torah, which occured on the 50th/51st day from Yetzias Mitrayim. The 50 is the letter "Noon" starting and ending Rabbeinu's and Rebbe Nosson's names, and 51 are the 51 words of the Petek over which Rabbi Moshe Feinstein gave his Haskama.
His Yahrzeit of 13 Adar is most significant, as not only is it mentioned in the Megilla as the day that the Jews came out to fight their enemies and won (it also represents the spiritual battle that we have in our daily lives and that we have the power to overcome it) representing the Inyan of Netzach; but we mention this date in Al HaNissim that we say on Purim which is ironic because we don't say this on 13 Adar, but only on 14/15 Adar and it mentions only the date of 13 Adar. The Vilna Gaon says that Purim corresponds to the Sefira of Netzach. As we know, Netzach is the Gematria of Rabbeinu's name Nachman, and Rabbeinu was Niftar on the day of the Ushpizin of Moshe Rabbeinu.
In conclusion, the family of Rabbi Moshe Feinstein noted that of all his good qualities, which were obviously many, the one that stood out the most was his Hakoras HaTov for others. Indeed, the least we can do L'Iluy Nishmoso is to have Hakoras Hatov for him for being willing of giving his Haskama which included his endorsement, encouragement, and blessings for all those helping Saba print the writings of Rabbeinu Nachman. In addition, we can apply the concept of Hakoras Hatov in our own lives and recognize the good that others do for us - whether spiritually or physically.
P.S. Rabbi Moshe Feinstein is buried in Har HaMenuchos, not far from where Saba is buried.

This Yeshiva student obviously came to the realization that only the Tikkun Haklali of Rebbe Na Nach Nachma Nachman Muman can save his life. Yet embarrassed to carry around a Tikkun Haklali or even openly write down the chapters of Tehilm that it is composed of, he was forced to hide it as a fictional phone number.
He then told me that he once found a similar situation on the opening page of a yeshiva students Gemara. It is customary for students to write their name and phone number on the top of the first page, in order that their Gemara be returned if lost. In this Yeshiva students Gemarah it said "If found please return to the following number" this was then followed by the chapter numbers of the Tikkun Haklali.
Credit must be given to these Yeshiva students for realizing that their salvation is depended on following the teachings of the true Tzadik, Rebbe Na Nach Nachma Nachman Mumon. Obviously there are much higher level of openly declaring attachment to Na Nach.
Well the reason is simple: They have absolutely no solution for it, nor can they offer anything to help the situation.
Lucky for the world, Judaism is not really dependent in any shape or form on your Yeshiva. The true leader of Judaism, Rebbe Na Nach Nachma Nachman Muman already told us how to deal with this issue.
Therefore take absolutely no heed to what any Pogum, Shakran or Mifursam will think or tell you. Immediately start studying the holy life saving teachings of Rebbe Na Nach Nachma Nachman Muman and start applying them to yourself.
Do not be embarrassed in any form or way to openly recite the Tikkun Hklali every day.
Grab your towel and march daily to a Mikvah, irrelevant to the reactions of the Klipah people.
While it is true that there are many 'happy' yeshiva students, it is only since they are feeding off the Sheker of Kavod and trying to be Geishmak all day. You that are not 'happy' it is only because you have began to realize the truth of the Sheker involving these quasi Jewish institutuions. Therefore why waste your life away suffering. Drop out, join Na Nach and start doing real Avodas Hashem.
Do not be afraid of what other will think. Just say Na Nach and make the move.
"Even ultra orthodox is somewhat watered down because they lead two lives, their personal life and their Jewish life. Even though they may try very hard to impose their Jewish life all the time, they still have the dicotomy. Nanach have only one life, they live for God as shown by Rabbainu Na Nach Nachmu Nachman Meuman, this is a deep concept which we have explained elsewhere."

My grandfather Rabbi Yitzchak Leiberboim, mentioned earlier, had two sons. One of them is my cousin Rabbi Avner, also a great man who served G-d from his youth. Rabbi Avner had a custom to go every Saturday night to the Sephardic synagogue of the Ari (near the Tzfat graveyard), and would sit there shut in alone day and night, the entire week, serving G-d, until the eve of the following Shabbat, when he would return home. Thus he behaved many years – he would spend the whole week there serving G-d, and my mother and her sister would bring him food. They would ask him how it is that he had no fear being there alone, and he answered them that he had no fear.
There is a great deal to tell of what he experienced there. Several times while he was praying the Shmonei Esrei prayer, a snake curled around his foot, but he did not move until the end of the prayer, and afterwards he grasped the snake and cast it away. The old Sephardic caretaker of the synagogue told us that a coarse anti-Semitic non-Jew lived near the synagogue, and he could not bear that Rabbi Avner studied there, and came to murder him. But when he entered and saw the learning of Rabbi Avner and his roaring, for he would roar like a lion when he learned, a great fear befell him, and he fled away, and he became sick and died shortly after. So may all Your enemies perish, O L-rd.
One time, when he came home on the night of Shabbat, he was covered in blood. The explanation was that Rabbi Avner had sat and studied at the big pulpit in the middle of the Ari synagogue, where the Seven Shepherds had ascended to the Torah reading during the time of the Ari, as is described in the book Praises of the Ari. The Ari appeared to Rabbi Avner in an awakened state, and he was frightened by it, and leaped down all the steps of the pulpit at once, and fell and was injured, and when he came home he was shaken, and did not want to explain at all what had happened, and his mother decreed in the name of honoring one’s parents, that he not go there alone anymore. He fulfilled the decree, and afterwards he always had a room designated for service of G-d and also for hosting guests, and he helped people to the best of his ability.
And I heard that our grandfather Rabbi Shmuel Heller loved him with all his heart, and when his mother was still pregnant with him, Shmuel said that she was pregnant with a great soul, the soul of a “father of light and a son of light”. And thus he was named Avner (father of light), and my father told me that in his youth, he prayed with such enthusiasm and self-sacrifice that his stomach became sick from it. His father would go to another synagogue to pray, for he could not bear the intensity of his son’s self-sacrifice in prayer. The overall idea is that Rabbi Avner was one of the giants of the generation, and even in relation to previous generations he was a novelty in the service of G-d. In his final years he dwelled in Meron for several years, until he ended his stay there and moved to Jerusalem. Afterwards he lived in the Old City of Jerusalem, and there he became sick and passed away, on the twenty-eighth of Iyar (the date of the passing of Shmuel the Prophet), in the year 5701 (1941).

Here is what we just added to NaNach.Org
Likutei Halachos on Megillas Esther - Likutei Halachos Milah 4:24
Crushing Olives/the Body/Forgetfulness Produces Torah - Likutei Halachos Orach Chaim Hilchos Birchos Hapeiros 3-4
He would take me to teachers in the city, to show off my keenness in Gemarrah and the commentaries, and also when I came to him to learn, he warned me to tell his students that I was twelve years old, when in truth I was not more than seven, and then I was also the most exceptional student, and he taught us in the study hall of the Breslov chassids (which my master Rabbi Dov of Warsaw had donated to the Breslov chassids – the study hall and everything in it).
Rabbi Israel Halprin of Kardun, one of our friends, would come to prepare the Shabbat lights during the time we were learning, and I merited seeing him every time, and also in the study hall, there were among the books of my teacher Rabbi Dov of Warsaw, five volumes of Chok le Israel, and at the end of every volume was included the Tikkun ha Clalli of Rabbi Nachman, and at the beginning of each Tikkun ha Clalli was printed (translate Yiddish), as appears in the introduction to the Tikkun ha Clalli, and we would read this, but I did not understand it, and overall I did not know of the existence of Breslov chassidism at all, and only now I remember what I read then.
Likewise, a grandson of a Breslov chassid would study with me, Rabbi Natan of Travitza, and he would bring the book of the Stories of Rabbi Nachman to the school, and together we children read the story of the Beggars, but I did not know of Breslov at all, as explained above, and the teacher Rabbi Noach Shlomo loved Breslov chassidism with all his soul, and he would always give moral edification to the above-mentioned child: “See to it to be G-d fearing. Your grandfather Rabbi Natan goes every day to the grave of the Ari, and cries out and pleads about you that you should be upright and fearing of Heaven,” and so when the above-mentioned Rabbi Natan passed away, he tore his garment according to the law before our eyes, and recited the blessing “Blessed is the truthful Judge (said upon the death of a relative).
When Rabbi Natan, the main student of Rabbi Nachman, was in the land of Israel, he stayed in the home of Rabbi Shmuel Heller, who related to him all of the above, and he asked Rabbi Natan, “What would one do if on some occasion, one could not complete all of the Tehillim?” Then Rabbi Natan explained to him the greatness of saying the Ten Psalms Rabbi Nachman revealed for rectifying the Covenant, which he referred to as the Tikkun ha Klalli.
And in his old age, when he did not have enough time or energy to recite all the book of Tehillim at the gravesite of the Ari, he would say the Ten Psalms, and he would say that these ten psalms are the essence of all the book of Tehillim, and likewise he would recite them at other holy places, as well as prayers from Rabbi Natan’s book Likutey Tefilot, and he owned all the books of Rabbi Nachman (and I myself possessed the book Likutey Halachot, Division Yoreh Deah, with his signature and many of his handwritten notes on the pages).
Likewise, when the Rabbi of Stehern was in Israel, he also stayed by him, and also Rabbi Nachman’s sister lived there free of charge.

He was also making a major revalation concerning the Tikkun Ha Klalli which Na Nach Nachma Nachman can substitute advantageously. Look atIbay Ha Nachal (blue edtion small format with petek on cover) page 72 number Tzav and you will see the three (3 not 10) tehillim that allow a person to see the nekuda tova and be as humble as a "nothing"- or nullifying the reader to the foundation of the world.
So it boils down to two words- three letters. Around this we Na Nach's need to build the Mishkan.
If we are still here today it is because of the efforts of all the generations to "push off the harsh decree yet another year- which we call G-ds' mercy".
How lucky are we, from this perspectve since we actually detain the only way to annul this ancient and harsh but absolutely justified, decree. Could this be the way to erase Amalek and make his efforts futile? Certainly!
Remember what the non jews call the book of Exodus we call the book of Names and the 32 32 or heart heart of names is the signature within the signature "sapera mi ani Nachmani" I'll tell you who I am Nachman x 10! This sentence is clearly stated in the Torah as the (eventual) solution to the sin of the Golden Calf. The commentators say that Moses' was actually erased from the book for the rest of the chapter- but that is not what Moses had in mind-
it does show that the formula didn't take effect and wouldn't take effect immediatly.
Na Nach is the ultimate and only way to reverse the sentence applying to all but the Tzaddik Isod Olam himself.
