n Parshat Ki Teitzei the Torah tells us the prohibitory mitzvah that a woman should not wear a man’s clothing nor should a man wear a woman’s clothing. Reb Nosson gives us some insight into the deeper meaning of this mitzvah. Read more at BRI Breslov.org

How can we get out of our bitter heaviness? How can we release our heavy hearts? What can we do when we’re paralyzed by indecision? How can we know which path to take—in career? Spirituality? Relationships?
Who do we connect to when we feel a lack of connection?

The destruction of the Second Temple was due to sinas chinam, baseless hatred, say our sages.
*But they also give other reasons, which if examined, all can be seen to be rooted in a lack of love for others, for self, or even Hashem.
In fact, the destruction of Jerusalem and the exile has important lessons to teach us about own personal exile, and the multiple spiritual journeys each of us needs to complete, in this lifetime, G-d willing.
In Turning Hatred Into Love, live on BreslovCampus.org this Wednesday night, August 10, at 8:30 pm (NY time), we begin with Rebbe Nachman’s short story “Simplicity”. We’ll discuss our own personal uniqueness (a vital topic in Breslov) in the context of ahavas Yisrael and unity. We’ll be able to reflect on what our heartfelt feelings about others can tell us about our own spiritual state (Azamra.) We’ll find that repairing our relationships (even if only possible within our hearts), is essential to our personal as well as national redemption.
Please join me at BreslovCampus.org for this live discussion relevant to The 9 Days and Tisha B’av.
