|Rebbe Nachman of Breslov taught…|
Every tzaddik has a spark of Moshe, the faithful shepherd of the Jewish people, who presided over the mishkan. And every tzaddik has certain souls among the Jewish people that learn in his personal mishkan like little children learn in the class of their rebbe. These little children, these souls, receive their breath of spiritual vitality from their tzaddik who leads them. The whole world is sustained by their breath as they learn Torah.
|What does this mean to me?|
|Children are the future of the Jewish people, and the breath of Torah that sustains them so that they can carry on the spark of our heritage needs to be as pure as they are. Since the time of the Jewish enlightenment movement, the education of our children has been a contentious issue because their commitment to G-d and His Torah is built upon the foundation of their education.|
Rebbe Nachman brings a teaching of the sages, that little children are “taken” because of the sins of the generation. The challenge of the generation is played out among the children, and they need all of our support and help. As we move toward redemption, the main area of spiritual work is in emunah, in strengthening our simple faith, and we find more and more that the children are right there on the frontlines. And we are right there with them.
Loving G-d, You know well
