1208 Hasidic Story: Sitting Close to a Rebbe

1208 EG

This classic Chasidic tale is the story of the significance for the follower of a brilliant teacher to sit as close to him as possible. This particular rebbe, named the Seer of Lublin, was believed to have had the power to see into the future. Being next to him was the most important thing in the world for this particular student. (In the Chasidic world, a rebbe has enlightened powers far beyond any kind of normal human abilities.)
