Make the Most of Elul

The beautiful grounds at the Valvue Estate, Morristown, NJ, site of the BRI Women’s Retreat, Sept. 8-10

Dear Friend,

It’s Rosh Chodesh Elul and each Jewish soul feels a deep yearning to come closer to Hashem. Rebbe Nachman says that we can all start over in life and that there is no better time to prepare for the New Year than Elul.

This is why we’re inviting you join other like-minded women at the BRI Women’s Retreat at the gorgeous Valvue Estate in Morristown, NJ, September 8-10th. There will be classes and workshops by Rabbi Jonathan Rietti, Rabbi Yossi Katz, and me, as well as plenty of joy. You’ll gain the inspiration and momentum you need make a fresh start. 

Make 5778 your best year ever and come to the BRI Women’s Retreat.

I look forward to welcoming you,

Chaya Rivka Zwolinski
Director, BRI Women (BreslovCampus.org Classes and Workshops)

But as soon as she comes out into the air of the world, she immediately forgets it, as our Sages teach.  —Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (LM 188)
