The Class:

In Walking The Path: The Deeper Meaning Of 5 Halachot, you’ll learn Halachot Orach Chaim and Choshen Mishpat with Reb Eliyahu Hecht as your guide. Together you’ll discover Reb Noson’s discussions on one of Rebbe Nachman’s lessons. They offer many deep and varied insights into the way we think about and apply halacha, Jewish law, in our everyday lives. Last semester we used the same texts to explore Shabbat and Chanukah; this semester you’ll learn the following topics:

  • Blessing of the Kohanim (priests) during davening; the significance of its placement in our prayers; and what makes Kohanim such a special part of the Jewish people
  • Mitzvah of helping an enemy unburden his struggling animal, and its practical relevancy to you
  • Four types of shomrim (guards), and why they must make an oath on their mission
  • Blessings on food.  Enhance this mitzvah we do all the time! Change how you view eating and learn how spiritual a physical act can be
  • Blessing of HaGomel (thanksgiving), who makes it and why

Eliyahu Hecht

Reb Eliyahu in his own words: “Healing and growing from past challenges, understanding how to integrate all aspects of life, discovering new pathways with which to relate to ourselves, our world and our G-d are just a few of the ways that Rebbe Nachman has enhanced my life. It’s important to remember that life is experiential, and many lessons are learned through trial and error. I’m excited to share what he I’ve learned with others, especially in an interactive setting where ideas can be collaboratively and personally developed.” Eliyahu Hecht discovered Breslov chassidus in his mid 40's, which gave him a great vantage point from which to identify and relate to the power and wisdom of Rebbe Nachman's teachings. Reb Eliyahu lives in Elizabeth, NJ with his family, where he leads a weekly chaburah in Breslov thought.
