Join us for this in-depth ten-class course on the thought and practices of Hasidic master Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810). Rebbe Nachman’s teachings are widely admired for their psychological insight, down to earth practicality, and leaps of poetic and visionary brilliance. We will look at the overall shape of his thought and his approach to Torah, prayer, mitzvot, and d’veykus (union with the Divine). We will also take a close look at some of his most commonly quoted and taught torahs (teachings).
