Being a late starter in Orthodoxy and watching life’s clock seemingly speeding up more and more every day, in an effort to learn some many things I’ve mastered absolutely nothing. In 2005, I was introduced to Breslov Chassidus, and...

Two Keys To Overcoming Anger

Breslov Repair Kit–Yom Kippur Refreshes

Got Life? When you’re a child, the minutes seem like hours and the hours like days. Then, you grow up. And time flies. Despite the fleetingness of time, if you’re like most people, at some point in your life you’ve “killed time.” Perhaps you’ve even killed a whole day. Or days. “Killed ‘em dead.” What is a dead day? It’s a day without good deeds and mitzvos. And what’s an alive...

Ask A Breslover: Individualism & Breslov

An Aspiring Breslover asks: Do you feel that Breslov is a more individualistic path than others? Does the community or “chaburah” (group) loom as large in Breslov Chassidus as elsewhere in the Chassidic world? Rabbi Dovid Sears answers: First, I think there is no way for anyone to follow a spiritual path except as an individual. As the old folk song goes, “You got to walk that lonesome valley by yourself.”  This point is brought out...
