Video: Take A Break: A Joy-filled Passover with Rebbe Nachman & The Tzaddikim

Is life a pressure-cooker? Does preparing for Pesach leave you exhausted? Do you wish you could slow down and savor the moments?

Back for the annual BRI Women’s Pesach talk, Chaya Rivka Zwolinski discusses how the lives and stories of Rebbe Nachman, Udel (Aidel), Reb Noson, the Baal Shem Tov, and more, can help you experience  a more meaningful and joyous Yom Tov.

A Woman’s Prayer (near the burial place of the Holy Baal Shem Tov)

Rebbe Nachman of Breslov’s grandfather was the holy Baal Shem Tov, the founder of the joyous, mystical Chassidic movement. The Rebbe’s grandmother was Udel (also pronounced Aidel), the Baal Shem Tov’s daughter. She was her father’s pride and joy, a learned, holy woman. Udel’s daughter was Fayga, the Rebbe’s mother. Fayga had a profound influence on the Rebbe’s life. We can safely say that Fayga helped him lay the foundation on which he built the palace of his wisdom.
