Make the Most of Elul

The beautiful grounds at the Valvue Estate, Morristown, NJ, site of the BRI Women’s Retreat, Sept. 8-10

Dear Friend,

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.

This is why we’re inviting you join other like-minded women at the BRI Women’s Retreat at the gorgeous Valvue Estate in Morristown, NJ, September 8-10th. There will be classes and workshops by Rabbi Jonathan Rietti, Rabbi Yossi Katz, and me, as well as plenty of joy. You’ll gain the inspiration and momentum you need make a fresh start. 

Make 5778 your best year ever and come to the BRI Women’s Retreat.

I look forward to welcoming you,

Chaya Rivka Zwolinski

This Elul Tap Into Your Hidden Connection To God: FREE Workshop

chickYou’re Invited!

Dear Breslov Woman,

Please join me for THINK SMALL: Tapping Into Our Hidden Connection To God, a free mini-workshop online for women only. It’s tonight, Tuesday, August 25 at 8:00 PM (EST); 5:00 PM (PST) at BreslovCampus.org.

This Elul workshop offers a timely preparation for
Rosh Hashanah. We’ll explore a unique Breslov perspective on connecting emotionally to Hashem by following His lead. It allows you to experience the freedom to let go of limiting self-beliefs so you can go to your next level of spiritual growth.

Based in part on an important theme in one of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov’s most lyrical Torahs, LM 219, Beetza Emrato, together we’ll learn how each of us has an essential, personal role to play in God’s Kingly coronation. How do we do it? We “think small.”

Time permitting, we’ll explore the following:

  • The story of God’s Royal Robe
  • A practical way to more fully experience Hashem in your personal life
  • Why cultivating smallness nurtures true greatness
  • The majesty of Rosh Hashana: A visualization
  • A Breslov Story
  • We plan to allow time for discussion on how to experience an “Uman, Rosh Hashanah” no matter where we are!

Beginners are welcome! Please share this post with your friends, sisters, moms, daughters.

Even You Are Dear To God

Camille Pissaro The Little Bridge“…you must have faith in yourself. Believe that even you are dear in the eyes of God. A measure of God’s goodness is every individual’s importance to Him.” —Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

How can you pray if you don’t believe that God is listening and that you are important to Him?

You can’t. Continue reading Even You Are Dear To God

Being Honest About Honor

869097_70856057Rosh Hashana is the Day of Judgment for all humanity. But despite its profound ramifications, Rosh Hashana is actually a very down-to-earth day.

On the New Year, we are judged and awarded (or not), all the ‘stuff of life’ in this world—life, health, wealth and sustenance for the coming year.  What we’re given depends not only on our actions during the past year, but also on how effectively we judge ourselves on this day, and open our hearts to God.
