From the introduction to Mashiach: Hope for Turbulent Times:
Do you have a sense that the world is racing towards an unavoidable turning point? That’s because, according to thousands of years of Jewish wisdom, it is. We are seeing the evidence with our own eyes. People are talking about the global pandemic, a hotly-contested election, glimmers of totalitarianism, and oppressive policies that clamp down on freedom. Various state and local governments are enforcing economically-crippling lockdowns. Small and medium-sized businesses in the hospitality, travel and retail industries have closed their doors forever. Places of worship are being monitored and some have even been shut-down. Politicians seem to prioritize everything except religious freedom. Despite online get-togethers, people are experiencing an unprecedented sense of isolation. It is an uncomfortable, even frightening, time for many. It seems that practically everyone wants to know what will happen in the immediate and long-term future and how best to prepare. People like you and me also want to know what is really going on, on a deeper, spiritual level, and how the coming changes will affect us.
This book is a response to these turbulent times, when so many are talking openly about the Mashiach (Messiah.) The truth is, many people believe in God and believe in His special relationship with the Jewish people, but have sincere questions and doubts about the Mashiach and the world-wide redemption. They find it difficult to believe in or envision the redemption because they have never learned much about it. Others are turned off by confusing pronouncements put forth by some individuals and groups, about the Mashiach’s identity, some of which directly contradict authentic Jewish teachings. Many more are turned off to the idea of the Messiah because they mistakenly believe the concept is from other religions. But it’s the other way around; the nations of the world took this completely Jewish concept, that of the Messiah, twisted it into a pretzel of confusing ideas and entwined it with idol worship. The result? Jews have been afraid to talk about the Messiah ever since.
All of this confusion can lead some people to feel squeamish about asking questions. (In my own experience, some students prefer to ask questions about Mashiach one on one, because it’s uncomfortable for them to discuss the subject openly.) The goal of this book is to as succinctly as possible answer the basic questions you have about the coming of the Mashiach and the Geulah (the world-wide Redemption). This book aims to provide an elementary understanding of the topic which, if you wish, you can use as a jumping-off point to other Redemption studies.
To help make this book easy to navigate, there are six chapters, each presented in a question-and-answer format, so you can quickly find the answers to the questions most important to you. Chapter titles are in the form of questions and related, italicized questions are included as sub-headings in each chapter. The material in this book relies on straightforward explanations of widely-accepted, authentic Jewish sources and therefore endnotes are provided so you further explore the source material yourself. Also included is a glossary of terms. To help you learn more about this topic, there is also short list of suggested reading (online and in print.) Rather than just publish this book electronically, we felt it was important to produce a small, inexpensive print version you can carry with you in your pocket or purse, and easily gift to friends and acquaintances.
It is my sincere wish that this little book inspires you to explore more of our rich Jewish teachings about the Mashiach, the Geulah, and faith, and that it begins to answer the questions you have about Mashiach, but were afraid (or embarrassed) to ask. Most of all, may it offer hope, please God, to everyone who reads it.

Rebbe Nachman and Reb Noson encouraged us to learn Azamra repeatedly throughout our lives. It might be your first time, it might be your tenth, but: Don’t miss out on this essential lesson!
Azamra will take place over the course of several weeks. Chaya Rivka’s been developing and teaching this unique approach for over a decade (in group classes and one-on-one.) After learning Azamra with Chaya Rivka, students have gone on to incorporate and apply what they learned to relationships as well as to their professions. Previous students have included Torah teachers, secular studies/fine arts teachers and college professors, visual artists, writers, psychotherapists, scientists, medical doctors, nurses, filmmakers, attorneys, businesswomen, moms, grandmothers, and women from all walks of life. Now it’s your turn!
*BreslovWoman’s famous original companion lesson, Holy Self-Esteem, will be scheduled in the near future, IyH. Holy Self-Esteem began a decade ago and has been taught in person and online at BreslovCampus. Now we want to bring it to everyone, live on Zoom. We need sponsors for this course. Please email crzbreslov @gmail.com if you would like to have the merit of sharing Breslov inspiration and joy for women and to dedicate a class in honor or memory of someone or for a special merit.
Video: You are Unique, Each Individual Person Counts,We Have Group Identity (Tribal/National), Too–Parshat Bamidbar–The Radiant Torah with Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
Watch on YouTube
In this video on the weekly Torah portion, we focus on the overarching themes of:
What it means to be a unique individual and what it means to belong to Israel (the Jewish people.).
We ask “Why does the Holy One tell us the events take place Bamidbar, in the Wilderness?” We must learn what the wilderness means to each of us, we discuss the psychospiritual messages of this important concept.
Also, we discuss the Census, the fourth one in the Torah. Why does God count His people?
We explore the layout of the wilderness encampment and the locations of each tribe.
And much more…
In The Radiant Torah, Chaya Rivka Zwolinski invites you to explore the weekly Torah portion, illuminated by the light of Rebbe Nachman’s teachings and insights from Jewish mystics and sages.

Everyone needs to feel hopeful. Everyone needs to be inspired. Yet, as the world around us seems to get crazier and crazier, being happy and hopeful can be a challenge.
That’s why we published a NEW book, Mashiach: Hope for Turbulent Times – and it’s our gift to you. It’s about the authentic Jewish Messiah and the happy future we can all look forward to. Believing in Mashiach and anticipating his arrival is one of the foundations of Judaism. Sometimes though, we get so bogged down in our day to day lives, we forget. This book is an accessible reminder.
Even if you’ve read about or attended a talk on the topic, like most of us, you probably still have questions. This book uses a convenient “Q and A” format so you can easily find the questions and answers you are most interested in. We even published it in a convenient pocket-size so you can keep it in your handbag and share it with others. It’s designed to start the conversation and encourage everyone to explore further.
Rebbe Nachman teaches: Truth hastens the redemption and the coming of Mashiach, and sharing the truth with others is as important as believing in it ourselves. That’s why, thanks to our wonderful sponsors, we are now distributing over three hundred copies of this book for free. All you have to do to get yours is to contact me at crzbreslov @gmail.com. (While supplies last, continental US only for free shipping..)
