The Glory of G-d

The Beauty Within

The sages taught that the Creator takes particular pride and joy in the unique qualities of every single Jew. Each of us is a shining jewel in G-d’s crown, glowing with its own hue, its own individual light.

This isn’t just an abstract idea; it means that the Creator of the universe takes unique delight in me, too. No matter where I’ve been, no matter what I’ve done, I have unique points of beauty and wonder that have never existed before and never will again. My innermost essence is forever beloved to G-d, is always dear to Him.

Dear G-d, please help me to always stay connected with people of truth—evolved souls whose vision reaches to the essence of things—who see the true beauty that is within me even when I have a hard time seeing it within myself.

Please keep my mind and heart open to their vision, so that I will always feel worthy of Your love.

(Based on Likutey Moharan I:17)

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 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.
