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,

A Sweet New Year

pomegranate_dsw-1In Class 3 of Rosh Hashanah On My Mind we prepare for the Yom Tov with a discussion of how we can tap into the power of our own thoughts, and continuing with real-life tips on how to apply the teachings of Likutey Moharan II, Lesson 94. (Fast forward to the 5 minute mark–the BRI/BreslovCampus assistant had no time to edit this video.)

Good Shabbos and Kesiva V’Chasima Tova, may you be blessed with a Very Sweet Year.

Rosh Hashanah On My Mind-Video

Rosh Hashanah On My Mind is based on a short but pithy lesson of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov in Likutey Moharan II. ( Lesson 94. ) This lesson focuses on the second and third “roshim” (heads) that come together on Rosh Hashanah; the three Kabbalistic dimensions; what to focus on during Rosh Hashanah; practical steps we can take on Rosh Hashanah; and the power of joy.

Here’s class two of the three-part course. It’s easy to follow along, and I give a brief overview of the first class at the beginning. Class one had technical difficulties and didn’t record, but I created an 8 minute video overview of class one which you can view on the course page.

Wrapping Your Head Around Rosh Hashana

Starting this Monday night, September 12, you’re invited to a new, three-week class, Rosh Hashanah On My Mind, live on BreslovCampus.org with Chaya Rivka Zwolinski.

8:00 PM Eastern time, 5:00 PM Pacific time.

Rebbe Nachman famously said: My very essence is Rosh Hashana. It’s therefore no surprise that Breslov Chassidut is packed with teachings on the head of the Jewish year. In this class we focus on the motif of the head, especially as it pertains to making a fresh start to your year—and your life.

Topics include:
The three heads that come together on Rosh Hashana
The Tzaddik, the head of the Children of Israel
The Head of the Year
It is all in Your Head: Gathering your thoughts and settling your mind
The seven lamps of the head
The Three Dimensions
New beginnings and joy

Monday, Sept. 12th – Sept. 26th (3 weeks)

Main Text: Likutey Moharan II, Lesson 94 and other Breslov sources

Herbst_(MW_2010.11.13.)
