In this week’s Torah portion, we read about the struggle between Esav and Yaacov, a struggle so primal it began in the womb. Whenever our matriarch Rivka would walk by a House of Torah Study, Yaacov would turn and reach, straining to get closer to the sweet sounds of Holy Torah learning. But whenever Rivka [...]
Continued from the last posting here: After completing the 40 day project a few days before leaving for vacation, I had the inclination that it was time to shift gears. When learning Likutey Moharan I:49 at the end of 2012, I had never taken the time to learn one of the corresponding discourses in Likutey Halachos [...]

Continued from last week here: Likutey Moharan I:282 - Week 7 In addition to going to Uman for Rosh Hashana and spending an hour a day in hisbodedus, a Breslover chassid is required to learn halacha every day. In the book A Day in the Life of a Breslover Chasid, Rabbi Yitzchok Breiter (1886-1943) summarized the Rebbe’s directive about a [...]
Continued from last week here: Likutey Moharan I:282 - Week 6 Continuing to focus on correcting my behavior instead of my youngest child's behavior, I had another important insight during hisbodedus. The insight was that another display of my chutzpah was how I was routinely annoyed by my youngest child's constant request to go to a store [...]
Continued from last week here: Likutey Moharan I:282 - Week 4 Using the notebook on the first night of the 40 day plan to find my youngest child's nekudos tovos (good points), I was only able to record eight items. As the days went on, I slowly became more attuned to identifying the faintest trace of nekudos tovos [...]
Continued from last week here: Likutey Moharan I:282 - Week 3 Not making any significant progress identifying the nekudos tovos (good points) in my youngest child, I consulted with a Chassidic Rebbe who had helped me apply Azamra to myself many years before. This Chassidic Rebbe is very close to the teachings of Rebbe Nachman and was one of [...]
Azamra! Thinking bad–or good–about others is just a habit and habits can be broken.
Continued from last week here: Likutey Moharan I:282 - Week 2 One morning during hisbodedus, a thought came to me that I should begin harnessing the energy I receive from eating in order to implement the teachings of Azamra in my daily life. This topic was fresh in my mind after speaking with a friend about achila d'kedusha [...]
Continued from last week here: Likutey Moharan I:282 - Week 1 It has been seven years since I last really spent time learning and trying to live the advice in this lesson. When I learned it seven years ago, I did not practice hisbodedus consistently, nor did I make this lesson the subject of my hisbodedus. Nevertheless, the [...]
Each of us is a unique soul, but we’re also part of a larger collective soul. Seeing the good in others has an effect on us all.
Know and Understand! A person must judge everyone favorably. Even if someone is completely bad, it is necessary to search and find in him some modicum of good; the little bit of him that is not wicked. And by finding in him a drop of good and judging him favorably, one brings him to return [...]
Continued from last week here: Likutey Moharan I:24 - Week 3 In order to follow my friend's suggestion, I stopped pleading to Hashem for help in hisbodedus and replaced it with thanking Him for the myriad of blessings that He sent me every day. Making this change did wonders for me. Previously, I had gone through the day making mental notes of things [...]
