When reading this article about the Noam Elimelech my curiosity was piqued after reading this line:

Rabbi Nachman of Breslov says in his book, “Likutei Moharan,” that:

“The level of holiness of the holy Rabbi Elimelech is transcendent high above anything seen or understood within his book.”

My question: Is this written in the Likutei Moharan? If so where?

  • How is this relevant to Judaism rather than just Jews? – DonielF Jun 25 '18 at 18:55

    @DonielF How is it not relevant to Judaism? TrustMeI'mARabbi asked a very relevant question: Does Rebbe Nachman mention Sefer Noam Elimelech in Likutei Moharan, as the article claims? – ezra Jun 25 '18 at 20:10
  • @ezra That sounds like a question about people, not a question about the religion they practice. – DonielF Jun 25 '18 at 20:17

    @DonielF It's a question about Jewish texts, not about people, which is very much on-topic. – ezra Jun 25 '18 at 21:05

ספר חיי מוהר”ן סימן תקנג.

…כשראה (רבי נחמן מברסלב) את הספר הקדוש “נועם אלימלך” התפלא מאד ואמר:

שקדושת מעלת הרב הקדוש רבי אלימלך ז”ל נשגבה למעלה למעלה ממה שנראה ומובן מתוך ספריו הקדושים הנ”ל.

Sefer Chayey Moharan Ch. 553

When he (Rabbi Nachman of Breslov) saw the holy Book "Noam Elimelech", he was greatly enthused, and he said that “The level of holiness of the holy Rabbi Elimelech is transcendent high above anything seen or understood from within his book."

    Are you saying it's not in likutei moharan or you just found this alternative quotation. – robev Jun 25 '18 at 12:10
  • Please Elaborate. But not bad answer +1 – TrustMeI'mARabbi Jun 25 '18 at 16:25
  • @TrustMeI'mARabbi I believe it is not in the Lekutei Moharan, because when the Chaey Moharan cites something which is stated in the Lekutei Mohran, the source in LM is cited along with it. Here it is not. – RibbisRabbiAndMore Jun 26 '18 at 7:59

As you can see in the below images, a search for the word "Elimelech" (אלימלך) in Likutei Moharan did not produce any results.
