Mazel Tov! Breslov for Women

Mazel Tov! The Breslov Research Institute (BRI) is delighted to introduce our first-ever program devoted exclusively to women, BRI Women.

Women have had a pivotal role in Breslov over the centuries. Rebbe Nachman’s mother Faiga, and grandmother, Udel the Baal Shem Tov’s daughter, were greatly respected for their knowledge and wisdom, dedication to the Chassidic movement, and emunah. Since then, many thousands of women have built homes permeated with Breslov inspiration.

For several year it has been apparent to everyone at the Breslov Research Institute that there’s a need for inspirational and educational Breslov programming, Uman travel, books and more, just for women. You’ve asked for women’s programming –and now it’s here!

Please visit BRI Women now and take a look at our web site. You’ll find lists of programs, articles, and video classes as well as an important announcement about our first-ever Breslov book by women for women, Rebbe Nachman: A Woman’s Treasury.

Don’t forget to share BRI Women with your friends via email or social media.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you and wish you a very Happy Chanukah.

The Traveling Uman-Women’s Boutique

Know! a person must travel to the Tzaddik in search of what she’s lost. For prior to a person coming out into the air of this world, she is taught and shown all that she needs to do, work at, and achieve in this world. 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)

BRI Uman Experience for Women, Summer, 2017

We were all sitting in the airport in Kiev, except for two travelers. They were still in baggage claim, hoping their missing suitcases would appear. But the suitcases didn’t appear.

I had spoken to both these women at length before the trip. I knew that traveling to the Tzaddik was no ordinary adventure for either of them. I prayed that nothing would go awry. And now this. Continue reading The Traveling Uman-Women’s Boutique
