    Whats so especial about this family of 20 of Av?

    Whats the special proof that the family from 20 Av was more special?

    I understood because they were saving wood for the entire time until 15 of Av and aafterthat there wont be anymore aavailabl for the Altar, but from class, your explanation doesnt make sense to me, because they, as a family are allowed to chop wood for them even after 15 of Av, so we cannot say they wont have any wood for themself after 15 of Av, unless you have to say they saved the wood the whole time, or the best wood (the one without worms etc from before 15 of Av, instead of saving for themselves,) they gave (it) to the Altar..

    Hi Rabbi,
    You mentioned in your lecture about the 15th of Av about the origin of the Baal Shem Tov's soul.
    Rabbi Yossi Paltiel quotes a letter form The Baal Shem Tov himself to his brother-in-law, Rav Gershon Kitover, written in the "genizah hachasados", about the origin of his own soul. There he mentions a few details of the story that seem a bit different than what you said, but mainly  - after the person (who created a commotion in heaven by his Bar Mitzvah) passed away, he was brought to Beis Din Shel Ma'ala. They found no flaws until one angel came and said "how can it that from such a holy soul, no-one benefited?" The soul was ultimately sent back down "with the purpose to reveal a new drench in Torah based on the principle of 'loving your fellow Jew as yourself', which would pave the way for Moshiach".
    He quotes the letter in "Lecture One" in the following link: https://insidechassidus.org/baal+shem+tov+new
    Thank you for all your help.
