238 Years from Baby Nachman's Birth

Two hundred thirty eight years ago on Rosh Chodesh Nissan, a holy cry was sounded. And speaking of crying, Rochel Imeinu - whose name Rochel is the Gematria of 238, was the one who cried on behalf of Klal Yisrael in the past, and Hashem promised her that He will listen to her and bring her children out from exile.

On a more positive note, Rabbeinu's B-day, Rosh Chodesh Nissan, is the Rosh Chodesh of the Roshei Chodoshim. And the beginning words of the middle Beracha of the Mussaf Shemoneh Esrei begins Roshei Chodoshim L'Amcha - the Roshei Taivos of these words spell Rochel. Moreover, on whatever day of the week that Rosh Chodesh Nissan falls out on, the coming Yahrzeit of Rochel Imeinu of 11 Marcheshvan will fall out on that same day of the week.

And being that this is now the beginning of the 239th year from Rabbeinu's birth, it should be noted that the Roshei Taivos of the four wives of Yaakov Ovinu spell the word Barzel (iron) - Bilhah, Rochel, Zilpah, Leah, having the Gematria of 239 - Beis, Reish, Zayin, Lamed. It's mentioned that the significance of this word having the Roshei Taivos of these women is that in order for the Jewish nation to be "kashered", they had to go through the iron crucible of Mitzrayim, and it is this word forming the Roshei Taivos of the mothers of the Jewish nation that hints to this.

As it relates to Breslov and Nanach (not just this year with the significance of the number 239), the Jews left the iron crucible on Pesach, and the word Pesach is the same Gematria as Rabbeinu's name Nachman - 148. And if Jews wake up to the truth of the teachings of Rabbeinu Na Nach Nachma Nachman Meuman, then we will not need to worry about another Iron/Iran Crucible, or Iron/Iran Crucible.
