In this episode we take a close look at the Baal Shem’s Holy Letter. Why did the Baal Shem need assistance from his Rebbe to have such an experience? Why did he think that he saw a harbinger of his death? What message did the Moshiach give him? Is there full consensus how to understand the message of the Moshiach to the Baal Shem? How did this effect the machlokes?
