The Baal Shem Tov, or Besht —  the founder of Chasidism — 
met the soul of the Messiah during an ascent to heaven. 
The Besht asked him, "When will the Master come?" 
The Messiah answered, "When your wellsprings break forth to the outside!" 
(from a letter written by the Besht to his brother-in-law about one of his soul ascents)

Moshiach Nigun

A gentle song popularized by Dovid Zeller. I learned it from his album Ruach long before I ever met him. The liner notes from Ruach list the song as Bobover and explain that by singing this nigun the rebbe could see into the future. Nothing can match Dovid Zeller's pure tenor, but here is my attempt to convey this sweet nigun to you.

This song was incorrectly titled "Reb Gedaliah's nigun" in earlier versions of this page. See Matisyahu's comments below.


Shalom aleichem Duvid,
One thing I noticed: you labeled R' David Zeller's nigun from Ru'ach incorrectly. "Reb Gedalia's Nigun" is a different one on the same tape. The one you recorded is called "Mashiech Nigun". I don't have the tape insert for Ru'ach anymore, and I don't remember the nigun's yichus. If you find out, could you let me know? I want to try using it for Tehillim 98 in Kabbalas Shabbos. Thanks very much,
