This Course: Not all days are created equal—some are hard and some are easy. But the days of Yom Tov are spiritually supercharged opportunities for growth. In this class with Reb Eliyahu Hecht, you’ll prepare yourself for this coming Yom Tov season with the teachings of Reb Noson. Learn how to make the most of each day, especially the days of Yom Tov. When you do, you’ll always be ready to connect to higher levels, no matter what.
The Series: Reb Noson, Rebbe Nachman’s leading student and scribe, tells us that the depth and breadth of Rebbe Nachman’s unique teachings show us how improve ourselves and get closer to Hashem. In his singular work, Likutey Halachot, Reb Noson extrapolates from Rebbe Nachman’s works to uncover rich insights into the Shulchan Aruch (the Code of Jewish Law), a text that is often misperceived as dry, dusty, or irrelevant. Likutey Halachot is bursting with inspirational explications of halacha (Jewish law), via the light of Breslov Chassidut, scripture, and the Kabbalastic masters.
As we learn the text, students will begin to see the world through the eyes of the ultimate Breslover, Reb Noson. In this series, you will explore the deeper meaning of the Jewish laws and learn the Reb Noson’s advice for achieving spiritual growth. This is halacha the way it was meant to be learned.
