    there is no way it was not designed as a replica. the first person must have copied or something because it cant be a ‘coincidence’

    The design originated based on the drawing discovered in ancient texts purported to be hand drawn by the Baal Shem Tov himself. Source: Myths and Truths of Chabad, by Faivish Quenty, 2016.

    Every place has the sparks that need to be brought to kedusha by all of us.
