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, z”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.

After 42 years, thanks to the generosity of a few students and admirers, BRI was finally able to publish volume 1 of Rabbi Rosenfeld’s original commentary on Rebbe Nachman’s Wisdom.

The great news is that the first printing quickly sold out and people are thirsty for more! We are now just weeks away from publishing volume two of these incredible teachings translated by Rabbi Shlomo Katz.
