Special petek in the Western Wall
Of all Israel’s holy sites, the Temple Mount is the most sacred for the Jewish people! It is present in their prayers, dreams, aspirations, wishes, songs and in their holy texts… it is the very center of Judaism.
From time immemorial, the prayers of the Jewish people took the road of the Temple in order to reach heaven.
Since the Temple was destroyed, we have access today only to one of the outer walls… the Western Wall, the “Kotel.”
It is an ancient Jewish custom to place a personal prayer to G-d, written on a small piece of paper called a “petek,” between the stones of the Kotel of Jerusalem.
Tsidkat-Eliaou gives you the possibility of carrying out this dream whenever you like..
Send us your prayer by fax or by email and we will print it and place it for you and in your name between the stones of the Kotel of Jerusalem!

After placing your petek between the stones of the Kotel, we will recite a specific prayer for you:
le Tikun Haklali.
Tikun Haklali, which literally means “universal or general reparation,” is a prayer consisting of ten Psalms by King David.
Rabbi Nahman first began to talk about the reparative powers of these ten psalms in June 1805. Five years later, Rabbi Nahman revealed the exact order of these psalms and why it is important to recite them. In 1822, Shachna, one of Rabbi Nathan’s sons, published the first Tikun Haklali containing the ten psalms, an introduction taken from Likute Moharan and some marvelous prayers by Rabbi Nathan.
This little book went round the world, touching the souls of hundreds of thousands of people. Since then, millions copies of Tikun Haklali have been published in every language.
Rabbi Nahman was inspired by heaven to discover the healing power of these psalms and, in particular, their ability to erase certain accidental blemishes. Since the act of reparation brings harmony to all things, the book was given the title Tikun Haklali – universal reparation.
What bestows such power to these psalms is that each one represents one of the ten melodies with which the World and man were created: they bring about the liberation of the soul and enable it to purify the 10 forms of distress, the causes of all blemishes.
“There exists a remedy for every sin, but this is the universal remedy…”
“If you believe that one can damage, then believe that one can repair…”
Here are the Ten Psalms in order: 16-32-41-42-59-77-90-105-137-150Ideally, they should be recited with devotion and fervor. But even a simple reading is enough to repair everything.
