Praying Like A Child

Rebbe Nachman’s deep yet completely simple and straightforward immersion in prayer was a wonder to those who were close to him. He prayed in a brokenhearted way, begging for mercy with total self-effacement, like a young child pleading with his father. Once, when a young man came to the Rebbe to ask for guidance in [...]

This Is Prayer!

Once, after finishing his evening prayers, Rebbe Nachman went with a number of his students to break bread. The Rebbe’s beloved disciple, Reb Noson, was among their number, but unlike them he hadn’t yet prayed the evening service. As the group walked, Reb Noson veered off in the direction of the synagogue. As soon as [...]

Judging by Giving

Judging by Giving

A Sacred Time - Tevet 7 Giving charity is an act of judgment, since we have to make a calculation about to whom we’ll give, in what way, at what time, how much, etc. The strongest motivating force for giving tends to be empathy—when we’re able to identify with and feel the pain of the other. [...]

Hear To Heart

A Sacred Time - Tevet 6 Rebbe Nachman taught that when we open a channel to share of ourselves with others, it means that we also become vulnerable to the negative spiritual energy that’s within them. He speaks about this dynamic in the context of outreach. To communicate effectively, there has to be an open conduit [...]

Taking Inventory of Myself

A Sacred Time - Tevet 5 The tribe associated with the month of Tevet is Dan. The Hebrew word dan means to judge…what does the tribe of Dan have to teach me during this month? I’m sometimes quick to judge others harshly even as I give myself the benefit of the doubt. But, really, during this [...]

Enveloped in Prayer

Rebbe Nachman once took one of his close students with him for an early-morning prayer session out in the field. When they reached the entry point to an old volcanic cavern half-hidden among the brush, he gestured that they should enter and do their hitbodedut within the deep chamber. As soon as they squeezed into [...]

A Winter of Opportunity

A Sacred Time - Tevet 4 The deeper works point out that the name of the month, Tevet, also means to set up the oil-lights of the Temple. While we know that the light of Chanukah continues to shine throughout this month to warm our hearts and souls, there is another message hiding in the letters. [...]

On the River

Near the town of Medvedevka in Ukraine was a village called Husyatin, surrounded by the green fields and grazing flocks that characterized the region. Nearby, the river Zbruch flowed, bounded by forests and farmsteads. In that small village, the newly-married Rebbe Nachman (who was then barely into his teens, and hardly a Rebbe) lived with [...]

Being of Service

A Sacred Time - Tevet 3 The month of Tevet is the heart of winter and it represents the hard times that we all have to endure on occasion. The days are short, the nights are long, and we run the risk of falling into “the winter of our discontent.” I might feel weighed down by [...]
