Yaakov Yitzchak Of Lublin
Jacob Isaac Horowitz (Hebrew: יעקב יצחק הורוביץ‬), known as The Seer of Lublin" (החוזה מלובלין‬), ha-Chozeh MiLublin; c. 1745 - August 15, 1815) was a Hasidic rebbe from Poland. A leading figure in the early Hasidic movement, he became known as the "seer" or "visionary" due to his purported ability to gaze across great distance by supernatural means. He was a disciple of the Maggid of Mezritch. He continued his studies under Rabbi Shmelke of Nilkolsburg and Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk. He lived for a while in Lantzut before moving to Lublin. After Yaakov Yitzchak moved to Lublin, thousands of Hasidim flocked to learn from him. Among his disciples were such Hasidic luminaries as the Yid Hakodesh

Parsha
The term parashah (Hebrew: פָּרָשָׁה‬ Pārāšâ "portion", Tiberian /pɔrɔˈʃɔ/, Sephardi /paraˈʃa/, plural: parashot or parashiyot) formally means a section of a biblical book in the Masoretic Text of the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible).[1] In the Masoretic Text, parashah sections are designated by various types of spacing between them, as found in Torah scrolls, scrolls of the books of Nevi'im or Ketuvim (especially megillot), masoretic codices from the Middle Ages and printed editions of the masoretic text. The division of the text into parashot for the biblical books is independent of chapter and verse numbers, which are not part of the masoretic tradition. Parashot are not numbered, but some have special names. The division of parashot found in the modern-day Torah scrolls of all Jewish communities is based upon the systematic list provided by Maimonides in Mishneh Torah, Laws of Tefillin, Mezuzah and Torah Scrolls, chapter 8

Ba'al Shem Tov
Israel ben Eliezer (born circa 1700,[2][3] died 22 May 1760), known as the Baal Shem Tov (Hebrew: בעל שם טוב‬, /ˌbɑːl ˈʃɛm ˌtʊv/[4] or /ˌtʊf/) or Besht, was a Jewish mystical rabbi considered the founder of Hasidic Judaism.[2] "Besht" is the acronym for Baal Shem Tov, meaning "Master of the Good Name" or "one with a good reputation."[5] The little biographical information about Besht comes from oral traditions handed down by his students (Jacob Joseph of Polonne and others) and the legendary tales about his life and behavior collected in Shivḥei ha-Besht (In Praise of the Ba'al Shem Tov; Kapust and Berdychiv, 1814–15).[6]. Hasidim approach these legends with a blend of suspicion and belief. Rebbe Shlomo Rabinowicz of Rodomsk declared, "Whoever believes all the miracle stories about the Baal Shem Tov in Shivhei HaBaal Shem Tov is a fool, but whoever denies that he could have done them is an apikoros [a heretic]"
