שְׂפוּנֵי טְמוּנֵי קֹדֶשׁ !!! 'Heiliger Tabak Pushke' of the Tzaddik, the exemplar of the generation and miracle worker Rabbi Yissachar Ber the Saba Kaddisha of Radoshitz, one of the greatest of Chassidus, the 'Minister of Cure' whose blessings brought forth salvation. An invaluable holy pedigreed item!
The tobacco box which was used and smelled by the holy Rav, Tzaddik Yessod Olam, Rabbi Yissachar Ber the 'Saba Kaddisha of Radoshitz' one of the greatest disciples of Maranan the Tzaddikim Rabbi Elimelech of lizhensk, the holy Rav Rabbi Moshe Leib of Sasov, the Rabbi the Chozeh of Lublin, the holy Rav Rabbi Mendel of Rimnov, the holy Maggid of Kozhnitz, the holy Rav the Phev Yisroel of Apta and the holy Rav HaYehudi HaKaddosh of Pshischa. The founder of the grlorious Radoshitz Chassidic dynasty. The holy Saraf of Kock said of his that he was 'Yechido shel Olam'.
His great disciples included the holy Tzaddikim: the Saraf of Moglanitza, the Tiferest Shlomo of Radomsk, the Divrei Yechezkel of Shinava, Rabbi Nosson David of Shidlovtza, Rabbi Eliezer of Djikov, the Gutter Yud of Neishtat, and the Tzaddikim of the generation.
The holy tobacco box was inherited by his son, his successor, the holy Rav Rabbi Yisroel Yitzchak of Radoshitz, and then by his son-in-law the holy Rav Rabbi Tuvya Lifshitz of Brigel the grandson and successor of the Ari Dvei Ilaya. The holy Rav Rabbi Tuvya gave the box as a gift to his nephew the Tzaddik Rav Rabbi Yitzchak David Bernstein who married Mrs. Beila of the Teitelboim-Lifshitz family of Brigel. Enclosed is confirmation generation after generation until the present one.
In addition, the Tzaddik Rabbi Shmelkeh Dachner and the pious Mrs. Rivkah, the descendants of the holy Rav of Brigel and Radoshitz testified that this is indeed the tobacco box of the Saba Kaddisha.
Among all holy artifacts, tobacco boxes are oustanding and the greatest of Chassidus and Kabbala said great things about them.
Kabbalistic and Chassidic Seforim deal with the importance and holiness of artifacts of Tzaddikim. Following are just a few examples:
In Midrash Raba Shir HaShirim 81 on the verse "לריח שמניך טובים":
In the Beis Midrash of R.A. there was a special stone on which he sat. Once, R. Yehoshua entered and started kissing that stone, saying: "This stone is similar to Mount Sinai and this upon which he sat is like Ark of the Covenant".
Chasssam Sofer on Parashas Toldos:
...אבל נלע"ד דמשמע בירושלמי ר"פ ואלו מגלחין דבמלבושיו של אדם נאצלים מקדוש של הלובש וה"ה בהיפוך והלובש אותם אחריו יאצל עליו מאותו הרוח לטוב ולמוטב בסוד אשר ילבשם תחתיו מבניו... כשם שנאצל עליו ע"י מלבושים מחמדה שלי ה"ה עכשיו שנתברך יעקב באותן מלבושים ושוב לובשם עשו עתה א"כ מהראוי שע"י המלבושים יאצל גם עליו מהברכוח וזה הלא אצלת לי ברכה ע"י המלבושים והשיב לו יצחק אה"נ..."
The holy Rav author of the 'Divrei Chaim' of Sanz had in his possession an exclusive tobacco box, though he never smelled from it. Before 'Kol Nidrei' Erev Yom Kippur, his son the holy Rav of Czchów as child was in a very dangerous state. The daughter of the Divrei Chaim requested her father to pray for the child but the Divrei Chaim exclaimed who can think of these things in such a high moment. The daughter did not give up until her father relented and said: 'lay the tobacco box on the child and he will yet live a long life and bring forth salvations'.
