Prayer Request - Ohel

  • ohel2.jpeg The Ohel is the resting place of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory and his father-in-law, the 6th Rebbe, of righteous memory.

    Visiting the resting place of a tzaddik (righteous person) is an ancient Jewish tradition. Several reasons are given for the custom:

    1. At any gravesite, you become more aware of your limited time on earth. Your heart is more open to prayer to G‑d, and so your prayers are accepted on high.

    2. The burial place of a tzaddik is a holy place, just like the Western Wall in Jerusalem. It’s like a portal to the heavens.

    3. A tzaddik’s presence can be felt at his gravesite just as it was felt during his lifetime. This itself can inspire you and carry you to an entirely different state.

    4. At the resting place, it is easier to connect to the tzaddik’s soul above and to request his blessings, just as you would before his passing.

    It is important to remember that we are not praying to the tzaddik. Rather, we are asking that he pray along with us and plead on our behalf.
