Know! a person must travel to the Tzaddik in search of what she’s lost. For prior to a person coming out into the air of this world, she is taught and shown all that she needs to do, work at, and achieve in this world.

BRI Uman Experience for Women, Summer, 2017
We were all sitting in the airport in Kiev, except for two travelers. They were still in baggage claim, hoping their missing suitcases would appear. But the suitcases didn’t appear.
