Who can we say today is for sure a tzaddik who has open ruach hakodesh? Does anybody know one. Maybe in Israel or something? I really want to contact one and ask for advise and blessing.
Rav Chaim Kanievsky, the Gerrer Rebbe and some others.
Depends on how you define a “tzaddik” and what you mean by “open” ruach hakodesh. If you search the YWN archives I suspect you will find literally hundreds of postings which purport to define the term and nominate those who qualify.
Also unclear what you mean “in Israel or something” Whats with the “something”?? There are rabbonim and askanim wherever you find yidden who might be recognized as “tzadikim”. Would you reject the advice of such a rav if he happened to be located in Gateshead, Lakewood or Willy versus Beis Shemesh or Yerushalayim??
Finally, rumor has it that one of the lamud vov tzadikim is lurking here in the CR.
GH, is that gadol hador?
I said lamud vuv “tzadikim” not lamud vov “gadolim”. Here in the CR, we are all technically “gadolim” at something.
I am a great Tzaddik and Ba’al Ru’ach HaKodesh, and a Ba’al Mofeis to boot.
For a (not so) small fee, I can give you generic advice and a vague Beracha.
I have advertised on the home page of YWN in the past, but then I saw with Ru’ach HaKodesh that it was no longer necessary to market myself; those who need help will find me on their own.
Seriously, for advice you are best off with your personal Rav, who knows you and your family, who is familiar with your situation, and who cares for you like for his own family. He is the only person who can bring both objectivity and concern to bear while contemplating your situation in its entirety.
If you don’t have such a relationship with a Rav, build one. It is the most important thing you can do for your family.
You can donate to Kupat Ha’ir if you really think your hatzlacha / yeshua depends on getting a Beracha from the “right” person. But the truth is that your Father “wants” [כביכול] to hear your voice; ask Him for whatever you need, show Him that you are striving to become closer to him, and rely on him completely to do what is best for you.
Catch Yourself said it very politely, I’ll be a bit more blunt and direct.
Ruach Hakodesh for your purposes does not exist anymore. Don’t waste your time and money looking for one who claims to have it or that others claim it for him.
A tzadik is someone who cares for others. Noach and Yosef supported others whereas Chanoch did not want to do anything with others, so Hashem said, malachim we don’t need here. I was told that tzadik stands for, צפון. דרום. ימה. ,קדמה he spreads himself over the four directions.
Ruach Hakodesh most certainly does exist today.
