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.

Here’s what some of the incredible women who joined us on the BRI Women’s Uman Experience visit to the gravesite of Rebbe Nachman and other Tzaddikim had to say:

The group dynamic was beautiful…quite unified, non-judgmental, and cohesive. It also felt like a giant hug.
Fonda Roth, Toronto

The first BRI women’s trip to Ukraine was simply incredible. I constantly said to Hashem, “If we had to go home now, it already would have been worthwhile,” and then an hour later, it had gotten even better. The whole journey was a constant dayenu.
Rachel Goldsmith, NYC

You absolutely nailed it. Accommodations, food, transport, and oh, yeah, kedusha too.
S. R., NYC

The trip was and still is a precious time.
Diana Korzenik, Boston

Thank you for the spiritual adventure of a lifetime.
Brenda Borenstein, Toronto

The Uman adventure was amazing, especially the feeling of unity and support for each other. I was doubtful that this cohesion was possible in such a large group – but it did happen, and it was a miracle! … among other miracles of this trip. Now it seems like a dream – but also a vision of a possibility of Jewish unity and togetherness in service to Hashem.
Rivka Weinstein, Maine

Amazing! Love all the new ideas coming forth from this trip.
Miriam Chava Kramer, Boston

Free-Will Angels

If God knows the future, how can free will exist?

How are we able to make truly autonomous decisions if God already knows what we’ll choose?

If God is intimately involved in guiding our lives, then how can our personal free will co-exist with his Providence?
