Lezajsk Tour - Tzadik Elimelech of Lizhensk

From € 90,00

Lezajsk. Lizhensk. The Grave of Tzadik Elimelech. 

Every year, on the 21st day of the month of Adar, Hasids from all over the world come to Lezajsk. They believe that anyone who at least once visits the grave of Tzadik Elimelech will not die in sin. The believers leave on his grave cards with written requests, the so-called kvitelach - which the Tzadik passes directly to God.

 

As for the requests, the reservation is only one - you should not want too much!

 

Tzadik Elimelech wrote his treatise "Noam Elimelech" (eng. "Elimelech gentleness"), where he placed asterisks over words, which meant unspecified and limited meaning of printed words. Hasidim believe that the stars in the sky are a commentary to the asterisks in Noam Elimelech.

 

According to the Hasidim, Tzadik Elimelech had a part of Moses' soul and, as one of 36 righteous people, he supported the existence of the world.

 

There are three pages about Warsaw in the Hassidic guide. About Lezajsk, it is already 50.

The Story about Rabbi Elimelech.

A long time ago, Rabbi Elimelech and his brother, falsely accused, found himself in prison.

To further humiliate him, the guards put a bucket of impurities in the middle of the cell. 

When the time came for the Mincha (afternoon prayer), the Tsadik's brother has begun to complain that in these conditions the mitzvah could not be fulfilled.

As a response, Rabbi Elimelech said:

"Even when you cannot pray because of dirty surroundings, you still do the mitzvah, and the mitzvah should be done with joy...

If so, we have reason to be happy and to dance! Do not be sad! Get up for dancing!... " 

 

And the Jews began to dance and sing. Prisoners from other cells began to ask where this sudden joy of the Jews came from. And no one could understand this, because the asked brothers were busy singing and dancing. They only pointed to a bucket of impurities standing in the middle of the cell.

 

When the noise reached the chief, he asked what the Jews were happy about. The guards said that the reason for their joy is a bucket of pigswill. Therefore, the chief immediately ordered to take the unfortunate bucket out of the cell.

 

And then the Jews stopped singing and dancing and began praying intently. 

 

This story teaches us that through joy, in spite of external difficulties, we are able to find new strengths within ourselves.

When we rejoice, God also rejoices with us. Our World affects and connects with the World at the top.
