It’s that time of year again: National Teshuvah Month, aka Chodesh Elul. In “honor”…
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.

Meir Elkabas discusses this week’s Torah parsha, Parshat Yitro. In this video Meir Elkabas begins with Yitro who was the ultimate idol worshiper–there is not an idol he didn’t serve! Yet, he rejected all of them to come to Hashem. Rebbe Nachman shows us how we can learn to move forward by using Yitro as an example–no matter what we’ve gone through, we can still connect to Hashem, just like Yitro.

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!
