Lazer's Dream

Tefillin Temple Dream
Sometimes we see things for years, day in and day out, but we never realize what we're seeing.

I had the sweetest and most amazing dream I ever had the night before Chanukah. In my dream, I was shown that tefillin and the Holy Temple resemble one another (see above image - this is the best possible reproduction I could make of what I saw in the dream).

After I saw that the tefillin and the Holy Temple are both crafted from the same Divine mold, the Melitzer Rebbe shlit'a came to me in the dream with a special pair of "tefillin" - it was a miniature Holy Temple, the size of tefillin, with tefillin straps extending from it. He then put the "Holy Temple tefillin" on my head, smiled much wider than he usually does, gave me two affectionate slaps on the cheek, and I woke up.

The Sfas Emes says that Chanuka is the doorway to the Geulah -- may the Rav's dream be the opening of the door to the Geulah Shleimah.


Yes, you are the new temple not made by human hands. Your heart the alter, your mind the courts. Your spirit the living Holy of Holies! Has He not already told you this! How can this be?

This is such an incredible dream!
Hopefully its an omen of good things to come!

Dreams like these, with full emotion and inspiration upon waking, are just phenomenal. My first thought was of course! And then thought number 2 was that the inspiration for the building of the Temple must have been similar. Thought number 3; isn't there somewhere in Tenach that says HaShem wears Tefillin? Thought number 4; then this is the direct connection to HaShem and his wanting our closeness to be at the top of his head as tefillin sits on top of "His Head"! Wow! Awesome thoughts inspired by your Holy dream!


Rabbi, according to Rebbe Natan (see Likutei Halachot, Chanukah, 4) and the Shem Mishmuel from Suchachov, tefillin is an aspect of the Holy Temple. What's more, the Shinowa Rebbe (son of Rebbe Chaim of Zanz) said that if a person sees a tzaddik in his dream, then the dream must be true. Look's like your dream is very real.
