Rebbe Nachman and You: Contemplative Writing From the Soul

with Chaya Rivka Zwolinski of BRI Women

Hosted by Jewish Living – Makom/Jewish Spirituality at the JCC Manhattan

Jun 12, 2019-Jul 10, 2019  (Four Wednesdays from 7:30pm – 9:00pm–except July 3)

(If you can’t make every class, that’s okay, you can catch up with me personally via email.)

Returning for an extended workshop with all-new material: Are you a curious blogger or journal writer, a beginner or published author, or just interested in getting to know more about yourself? Have you ever wanted to write from a deeper place inside you? Nourished by the hidden wellsprings of ancient Jewish wisdom, Rebbe Nachman’s stories are enchanting, dramatic, at times even amusing. But most of all they are elixirs that reveal and heal the soul. In this four-part workshop, we’ll take key concepts from these stories for writing prompts, and then write in your choice of several genres, such as narrative essay or memoir, poetry, lists, expository essay or free-form journaling, and more. Share and discuss. Be inspired and discover new aspects of self.

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.

Uman: Plane Ticket Prices Have Dropped!

Dear Friend,

I was checking out the airfares to Kiev, Ukraine today and saw that some flight ticket prices have dropped since a few weeks ago. This is unusual in our experience–in fact, they usually go up closer to the trip.

If you were hoping to travel to Rebbe Nachman in Uman, I encourage you to book today.

Have you dreamed of going to Rebbe Nachman’s holy gravesite in Uman?

In our fourth year, now with longer trip and additional time in Mezhibuzh (Baal Shem Tov).

Join BRI Women’s Chaya Rivka Zwolinski and discover the power of your prayers.

Begin at the advocate of Israel, Rav Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev; step back in time to Mezhibuzh and the resting place of the holy Baal Shem Tov; step up to the sweetness of praying at the gravesite of Reb Noson in Breslov, author of Likutey Tefillot (The 50th Gate); and enjoy the otherworldly delights of Shabbos with Rebbe Nachman in Uman.

You’ll make hitbodedut in Sofiefka Park where Rebbe Nachman himself made hitbodedut, learn inspiring Breslov Chassidut and the history of the Tzaddikim, and experience Jewish Ukraine, and so much more.

Stay in comfortable and clean lodgings at the lovely hotel at the Baal Shem Tov and in our private BRI guesthouse in Uman, enjoy fresh, delicious meals and snacks, and travel with a truly special group of women.
