Ohr Hachaim

Today is the Hilula of the Ohr Hachaim (the name of the commentary on the Torah written by) Rabbi Chaim ben Atar, who lived into the generation of the Baal Shem Tov who testified that the Ohr Hachaim had attainted the 'ruach' - spirit (second level of the soul) of the Messiah. The Ohr Hachaim is buried on Har Hazeisim, and B"H I'll have a little footage for you a little later - I was zoche (merited) to get a ride here for this event, maybe in the merit of my writing Nanach on his holy tomb more than once. B"H Sharon from our Hebrew will be doing hafatza there as well as giving out free refreshments (there probably will be other mefitzim there as well).

Great blessings of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
