Introducing: Rebbe Nachman’s Soul

by Yossi Katz


Behind the extensive library of the Breslov Research Institute is a secret. Before the publication of our more than one hundred titles, including pioneering English translations of all of Rebbe Nachman’s works, there was one man and a tape recorder.

That man was Rabbi Zvi Aryeh Rosenfeld, zt”l, who brought the teachings of Rebbe Nachman to the English-speaking world in the mid-twentieth century. He went from synagogue to synagogue, school to school, and night class to night class in New York, inspiring young and old, beginners and scholars, Ashkenazim and Sephardim with Rebbe Nachman’s wisdom. Reel-to-reel and cassette tapes recorded for posterity the brilliant insights of a man who himself lived and breathed the tenets of Breslover Chassidut. From these tapes, the Breslov Research Institute was born and flourished, as the printed word conveyed many of Rabbi Rosenfeld’s insights to a broader, worldwide audience.

Rebbe Nachman’s Soul takes the reader back to the days when Rabbi Rosenfeld began a new series of classes on the key Breslov text, Sichos HaRan (Rebbe Nachman’s Wisdom). Speaking in upbeat, contemporary language, this master teacher probes the deeper meaning of Rebbe Nachman’s teachings, deriving practical advice and encouragement for living with faith, joy, simplicity, and reliance on the true tzaddik. Rabbi Rosenfeld’s vast Torah knowledge, humility and warmth shine through each lesson, and his rock-solid belief in Rebbe Nachman as the true tzaddik give his words the ring of truth.

This first volume of Rebbe Nachman’s Soul presents Rabbi Rosenfeld’s classes on Sichos 1 to 40. Rebbe Nachman’s original lesson is printed before each class, making this an all-in-one volume for study and review. Come “listen in,” and gain inspiration for a lifetime.
