Amidah-Mishpatim-Becoming a Tzaddik Print E-mail
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

iAttach-Prayer-Amidah-Parsha-iPray-Kavanot-Parsha-MishpatimIn every generation God chooses one Jew to be the head of the generation; that Tzaddik of the generation. Although it is possible for one to become a Tzaddik through his own efforts in subduing his evil inclination and serving God with attachment, it is both extremely difficult and very rare. Normally there are three ways in which a man can become a Tzaddik: his ancestors may have been righteous and he inherits his charismatic gifts from them; he may have been named after a Tzaddik; or he may have been a Tzaddik in a previous existence. (The transmigration of the soul comes to correct another Tzaddik's deficiency during his lifetime or his own shortcomings in a previous life.) Based on Noam Elimelech; Mishpatim 44a.

 

“On the righteous, on the devout, on the elders of the remainder of Your people of the Family of Israel, on the remnant of the Academy of the scholars, on the righteous converts and on ourselves, may Your compassion be aroused, please, God, our Lord, and give goodly reward to all who sincerely believe in Your Name.”

On the righteous: he may have been named after a Tzaddik.

On the remnant of the Academy of the scholars: his ancestors may have been righteous and he inherits his charismatic gifts from them.

On the righteous converts: The transmigration of the soul comes to correct another Tzaddik's deficiency during his lifetime.

On ourselves: or his own shortcomings in a previous life.
