Part One of two-part workshop at BreslovCampus.org. Each person has her own unique life-path to travel from year to year—and Rebbe Nachman’s teachings help you create your personal map to spiritual growth. Using Rebbe Nachman’s Advice as the guide, Chaya Rivka Zwolinski discusses how to identify and make choices that support your deepest potential.
Part Two will be live at BreslovCampus.org, Monday night, Sept. 11th at 8:30 PM.
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.
