Question
Thank you, can you help to understand the meaning of 10 types of tzedaka and 10 types of pulses in the Rebbe Nahman story "the seven beggars"? thank you. What is meant by this? thank you.
Answer
ב"ה Shalom The tales of Rav Nachman refer to Kabbalistic ideas, which are things which cannot be explained on this platform. However, I can refer you to a book called "The Seven Beggars & Other Kabbalistic Tales of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov" written by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan zt"l, where there are extensive note and explanations on these issues. See pages 61-63. All the Best
