Today is the Yortzeit of Rav Levi Yitzchak of Berdichev

The 25th of Tishrei is the yortzeit of Rabbi Levi Yitzchok of Berdichev who was an amazing Tzaddik. Many Breslovers travel to his kever on their journeys to Uman and back. The Berdichever sided with Rebbe Nachman during the machlokes on him and was very fond of Rabbeinu and Rav Noson.

Rebbe Nachman said about the holy Berdichever:

“This is something you don’t know but when the Rav from Berdichev says the word Creator – sparks of fire come out from his eyes”

Original source in Chaye Moharan:

(קנו) פַּעַם אַחַת אָמַר לִי בְּזֶה הַלָּשׁוֹן: “דָאס וֵוייסְטוּ נִיט אַז דֶער בַּארְדִיטְשׁוֹבֶער רָב זָאגְט דֶער בּוֹרֵא שְׁפְּרִיצְט אִיהם פַייעֶר פוּן דִיא אוֹיגְן” [זֶה אֵינְךָ יוֹדֵעַ שֶׁכְּשֶׁהָרַב מִבַּרְדִיטְשׁוֹב אוֹמֵר הַבּוֹרֵא, נִיתָּז אֵשׁ מֵהָעֵינַיִם] וְדָחַק תֵּבוֹת דֶער בּוֹרֵא [הַבּוֹרֵא] וַאֲמָרָם בְּאֵימָה וְיִרְאָה, וְהָיוּ הַדִּבּוּרִים מְרַתְּתִין כְּשֶׁיָּצָא מִפִּיו הַקָּדוֹשׁ:

In the merit of Levi Yitzchak ben Sara Sasha, we should all be blessed from Hashem.
