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.
