The Tzaddik Protects

The tzaddik is protecting Eretz Yisrael - picture by Yehoshua Wiseman,

The Tzaddik protects the people who follow after him.

Translated excerpt of a shiur by Rabbi Eliezer Berland, shlita.


Rehoboam had 28 sons.

He was the son of Shlomo HaMelech, [he had] 28 sons, 30 daughters.

From Asher, how many were from [the Tribe of] Asher? 40,000.

And how many from [the Tribe of] Zevulun? 50,000.

From Ephraim, 20,000.


Whoever went after David HaMelech didn’t need a heart.

He went with simplicity, he didn’t think.

A war is like Yom Kippur, who will live, who will die?

It’s not known, who will come back alive.

But the Tribe of Zevulun, they all came back alive, all of them.

At no time did anyone die from the Tribe of Zevulun.

“Happy is Zevulun in his going out.”


If a person goes after the Tzaddik, he doesn’t need to be afraid of anything.

The Tzaddik protects him.
