What I Can Give, No One Else Can

Hold On!
Meshivat Nefesh #3

The Glory of G-d

United We Stand

The tzaddik has such a broad soul, he’s able to work with the full spectrum of human beings, from the greatest to the least. And those who are close to him also develop the skills and tools and broadness of spirit that help them to help one another.

So even though the tzaddik can reach people that I can’t, I do still have a lot to share with my friends. And they also have words of wisdom and encouragement to share with me. Together, we’re able to wake each other up out of our spiritual slumber and support each other to grow in our relationship with G-d. United, we stand.

Dear G-d, please help me to remember that I’ve already received life-giving teachings from the tzaddik. May I always share them freely with my friends, and may my heart be ever open to their good influence too.

Because what I can give, no one else can. And what each of them have to share is their own, unique gift.

(Based on Likutey Moharan I:13)

Yehudis in her own words: When I first began learning Rebbe Nachman’s teachings with my husband and other teachers, I felt as though I had come home to the personal and vital relationship with G-d that I’d always sought. Today, a large part of my inspiration comes from helping other Jewish women discover their own spiritual potential through the meaningful teachings of Breslov Chassidut. Yehudis Golshevsky has been teaching Torah classes to women and working in Torah publishing for nearly twenty years. She’s a graduate of Yavne Teacher’s Seminary in Cleveland and holds a degree in Judaic Studies from SUNY at Buffalo. Currently, Yehudis is a contributor to Breslov.org and “Pathways”, the Breslov Research Institute’s weekly publication. Since 2006, she’s been taking women’s groups to Uman and other sites in Ukraine for prayer and study. Yehudis lives with her family in Jerusalem.
