Rosh Chodesh Kislev is the Hilula of Rabbi Shalom Shachna of Lublin. Here is a link to learn more about him which will assist you in your connection and asking for his help with the items of lack in your life.

Rabbi Shachna died in 1558. The only published book we have of him isPesachim be-Inyan Kiddushin. He was a more prolific writer than that but enjoined his son Israel Ben Shalom Shachna and son in law Moses Isserles not to publish his writings. This was due to his modesty which he was well known for. In fact he is the least known Rosh Yeshiva of the Yeshiva in Lublin. He was Rosh Yeshiva and started the Yeshiva in Lublin in 1515. He was known to teach a method of study of Talmud known as Pilpul which was a method that took over the Ashkenazi students about the time that Tzafat became the center of Kabbalah in the Jewish world.
