Building Completion Progress

[heading size=”32″ align=”center” margin=”20″]Rebbe Nachman made an unprecedented promise:[/heading]

“Whoever comes to my grave, recites the Ten Chapters of Psalms, and gives something to charity, I will extend myself the length and breadth of creation for him. By his peyot (sidelocks), I will pull him out of Gehinnom!”

Dear Friend,

What a promise! And because of it, Rebbe Nachman’s followers throughout the centuries have made every effort to journey to Uman to pray at his gravesite. On Rosh HaShanah, the day Rebbe Nachman urged his followers to make a special effort to be with him, tens of thousands of people from around the world gather to pray, to sing, and to be part of the true Breslov experience.

For English-speakers, this life-altering journey has been made so much easier by the pioneering efforts of the Breslov Research Institute (BRI). In 2001 we established our humble base of operations in Uman, which we fondly call the “Ritz-Carton.” Here first-time Uman-goers have a “relatively” comfortable place to stay, while sharing their own miraculous stories that brought them to the Rebbe.

To our satisfaction, our program has been met with huge success. Indeed, we have completely outgrown our Ritz-Carton. We are pleased to announce that this Rosh HaShanah, with your help, we can inaugurate the brand-new Breslov Research Institute Uman Educational Center!

The BRI Uman Educational Center will provide thousands of English-speakers with incredible Torah lessons and prayer services, along with a comfortable bed and a warm meal in a truly exhilarating and friendly spiritual environment. The building will also be used throughout the year for BRI-led non-Rosh HaShanah retreats in Uman, as well as host pilgrims from around the world.

Thank you for making this opportunity possible.

In the merit of the great tzaddik, may you be blessed with eternal goodness and joy, Amen!

Rabbi Chaim Kramer
Founder, Breslov Research Institute
