lamud vov tzadikParticipant
I think everyone is a lamud vov tzadik, so I was wondering what the concept of lamud vov tzadik isJanuary 22, 2019 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #1666491
There are only 36 of them and their identities are a secret.January 22, 2019 10:16 pm at 10:16 pm #1666501
36 of them IN EACH GENERATION
That’s what you left out.January 22, 2019 10:20 pm at 10:20 pm #1666504
What happens when one dies?
Does a non tzaddik suddenly become a tzaddik?
Does a well known tzaddik suddenly become hidden?January 22, 2019 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #1666507
You don’t become a lammud vovnik overnight. As your tzidkus grows, you grow into a bigger tzadik. When a lammud vovnik is niftar another tzadik reaches the madreiga of becoming a lammud vovnik. And the new lammud vovnik wasn’t a well known tzadik in the first place.
Any other secrets you need answers to?January 22, 2019 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #1666512
Since nobody knows who the Lamedvavniks are, not even themselves, every Yid must live his/her life as if he or she might be one of them. For all we know, one of the regular CR posters could be one of these big tzadikim and live their life and die as an ordinary person to have their place taken by another poster.January 22, 2019 11:00 pm at 11:00 pm #1666518

What if he’s doing an aveirah at the time?
Any other secrets you need answers to?
Yes, who are the other 35? 🤣🤣January 23, 2019 12:41 am at 12:41 am #1666914
What is the source of the 36 ?
I assume these are the 36 top tzadikim ? However there are many more tzadikim? Or is everyone else a beinoni / rasha?
Is there also a count for woman , can they be part of the 36 ?
How about kids before bar mitzva?
-“ what if he is doing an aveirah at that time “ well tzadikim other than Moshe rabeinu will probably do have some aveirohs..
I would be surprised if some of the 36 never even learned and just did the best that they knew with chesed etcJanuary 23, 2019 5:34 am at 5:34 am #1666921
The Gemara in Sanhedrin, Perek Chelek that mentions the 36 Tzadikim doesn’t say that they are hidden.January 23, 2019 10:02 am at 10:02 am #1667096January 23, 2019 12:09 pm at 12:09 pm #1667146
The little I knowParticipant
Does the anonymity of a screen name in the CR qualify for the “hidden” status?January 23, 2019 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #1667427
To Little I Know: As noted above, a lamodvovnik could be just A POISHiTE YID. Can you imagine someone like that lurking here in the CR hiding behind the anyonymity of a screen name??? The thought of that possibility sends a tingle up my screensaver…..
