We are currently in the Three Weeks, known as Bein HaMeitzarim.
Jewish law states that one who is God-fearing should mourn and cry over the destruction of the Beit HaMikdash.
Rebbe Nachman in Likutey Moharan II 67 makes a direct connection to the point where we received from the Beit HaMikdash the knowledge and true, inner understanding of what our mission is in our lives.
We received the knowledge from the Beit HaMikdash, but the inspiration for that same knowledge came from the true tzaddik.
Moshe Rabeinu, he and no other, was capable of building the Mishkan – because it’s not just a matter of building the structure, but maintaining it, as well.
When the Beit HaMikdash was destroyed, we also lost the knowledge of the tzaddikim.
This is something that we must work to reinstate so that it returns to us, as quickly as possible.

We are currently in the final stretch of the monumental project to reprint The Fiftieth Gate, the English translation of Likutey Tefilot, Reb Noson’s prayers based on Rebbe Nachman’s teachings.
The new edition consists of four magnificent volumes in large clear font and with many other improvements to make it as user-friendly as possible.
Baruch Hashem, when we launched the project a little over a year ago (see video), we received very positive feedback; now we’re just about reaching the finish line.
We turn to you with full hearts: We really need your help! There are still about 60 prayers that have not yet been taken and that you could sponsor thereby becoming partners in this very important undertaking.
All who sponsor a prayer receive a dedication in the book as well as the full set when it is printed.
Even if you had the merit to take upon yourself a prayer last year, you could still join again now and gain even more everlasting merits.
With your participation, you are actively building the Beit HaMikdash – and there is no time more suitable than now!
Please, make an extra effort to help us complete the printing so that we can bring the knowledge of the tzaddik to the world and hasten the rebuilding of the Beit HaMikdash, speedily in our days, amen.
