Shortly before his passing in 1810, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (sometimes spelled Breslev) told his followers that his influence would long endure, saying, “My fire will burn until the Messiah comes.”

Centuries later, Jews of all persuasions have discovered the Rebbe’s philosophy to be a powerful natural bridge between ancient Jewish wisdom and modern-day self-development. The Rebbe’s teachings offer practical and achievable inner-growth, while conveying a spiritual vibrancy that provides strength and stability during difficult times.


How to Get Started:

Rebbe Nachman’s teachings are profound and mystical, while at the same time practical and inspirational. They also cover almost every conceivable subject. The following is a suggested order of study.
