False humility is a kind of arrogance that can interfere in a person’s relationship…
This week on BreslovCampus, Meir Elkabas discusses the Torah portion, Parshat Vayelech, with insights from Rebbe Nachman of Breslov.
In Part 1, Reb Meir begins with lesson 6 in Likutey Moharan and how this relates to the parsha, which refers to the relationship of Moses and Joshua. How does the Tzaddik (a Rebbe) connect to his talmid (disciple)? How does a Rebbe pass down light and knowledge to his talmid?
He continues in Part 2 and discusses how the disciple can take the light given to him and transmit it to the people. This was the case with Moshe and Yehoshua, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai and Rabbi Abba, the Arizal and Chaim Vital, the Baal Shem Tov and the Maggid of Mezritch, and Rebbe Nachman and Reb Noson. Reb Meir then explains the concept of the Ohel Moed, the Tent of Meeting, which is associated with shame and embarrassment. The true disciple must endure insults and being humiliated in order to absorb and transmit truth.

Chaim Kramer discusses the weekly Torah portion, Parshat Korach. Although Korach was very wealthy, he was jealous of Moshe’s status as the leader of the Jewish nation, and this jealousy led to rebellion. Korach’s desire for honor led to destruction. This arrogant lust for honor and power still burns in the hearts of many people today. But honor and power if used incorrectly not only destroy others, but also one’s self. Rebbe Nachman teaches us not to give in to the desire for honor and be swallowed up by our own materialism.

Meir Elkabas offers us au nique story about one of today’s modern Breslov rabbis, teaching us the importance of fleeing from honor, an oft-repeated theme in Rebbe Nachman’s teachings.
How to identify a true Breslover? When they are offered honor, awards, and the “red carpet”, they run the other way!

The great Rabbi, head of the Beis Din, Rav Mordechai Halberstam of Sokolov, was so genuinely humble he would cry his heart out at Rebbe Nachman’s grave in Uman as if he were the worst sinner. He is an example for all of us as we progress in Torah learning, to maintain our humility.Like this video? Please LIKE, SHARE, and SUBSCRIBE.
