The founding of the Breslov Research Institute was an outgrowth of the outreach work of Rabbi Zvi Aryeh Rosenfeld, who brought the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov to American shores beginning in the late 1940s. Born in Eastern Europe at a time of great global tumult and raised in the United States in the face of rising assimilation, Rabbi Rosenfeld saw in Rebbe Nachman’s teachings an answer to disenfranchised Jewish youth in America. He introduced the timeless teachings of this great 19th-century spiritual influencer to American youth through lectures that he gave in the New York area, which he later disseminated through tapes to the masses.
The following are excerpts from upcoming books drawn from the classes of Rabbi Zvi Aryeh Rosenfeld z”l. Plus never-before-seen pictures from his life.
Please help support these incredible new projects and help Rabbi Rosenfeld’s light continue to shine and spread joyful and meaningful Judaism to many thousands.
