Welcome Letter to BRI Women

Dear Friend,

It is with tremendous delight that I announce the newest member of the Breslov Research Institute family of projects, BRI Women. We invite you to experience the enriching, life-changing wisdom of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov and everything it has to offer. In particular, the Rebbe helps us strengthen all our relationships–with Hashem, with each other, and with ourselves.

Since time immemorial, women have been educators, communicators, and creators. With our knowledge, intuition and commitment, we determine the spiritual energy in our homes, workplace and communities. The BRI Women program recognizes the centrality of women’s creative and communicative abilities to Jewish life and how essential these talents are to fostering healthy spiritual growth.

To help women discover their potential, BRI Women invites you to join our educational and inspirational programs by women for women. You can drop-by BRI Women classes in your community or drop-in for live online classes at BreslovCampus.org. You can participate in or host a special event such as the women and girls self-esteem building  Azamra! Program and workshops in Hitbodedut, Contemplative Writing and more.

Also, why not join us for our annual women’s Weekend Retreat and Shabbaton? And remember: Uman is not just for men. BRI Women and the BRI Uman Experience takes you on the journey of a lifetime on our women’s mission to Rebbe Nachman’s tziyun in Uman.

Finally, it’s with joy that I am able to say work has begun on BRI Women’s groundbreaking Breslov book, Rebbe Nachman: A Woman’s Treasury.  It is the first Breslov book by and for women and will be published by the Breslov Research Institute, the leading Breslov publisher in the world. Please see submission guidelines and find out how your story can be read by thousands. Also, see the ways in which you can help BRI Women produce this historic publication.

The possibilities for inspiration are limitless, but we need your help. Please support BRI Women and help us grow.

With joy,

Chaya Rivka Zwolinski
Director, BRI Women
