Longtime fan of this forum, but this is the first time I’ve ever posted.
Anyhow, is one able to have a relationship with a deceased rebbe? Meaning, can one learn Torah from a deceased rebbe through the texts or even videos they have left behind?
I ask because a core aspect of Judaism is the talmid-moreh relationship. But some groups pledge their allegiance to rebbes who are no longer around b’guf. Is that allowed?
