Elie Wiesel relates in "Souls on Fire" that the Seer of Lublin together with two friends Mendel of Riminov and the Maggid of Kozhenitz "devised a detailed strategy combining their powers to bring about the final Redemption." Wiesel said it failed and punished by G'd they perished in 1814/15.

Are more details known about this effort?

  • Thanks for that. So that link also has an English translation Buber's Gog and Magog "this is a religious chronicle in fictional form, with Hasidic rabbis as its heroes. Buber unfolds the inner world of messianic longing and expectation that characterized Judaism then and continues to characterize it to the present day" bookdepository.com/Gog-and-Magog-Martin-Buber/… – Daniel Jun 19 '16 at 17:25
