For some, the idea of the Tzaddik can be challenging to understand. But the concept of the Tzaddik, a righteous individual and the shepherd of the Jewish people, is one that is rooted in Torah Judaism, perhaps most recognizably in the beloved figure of Moses, our humble but great leader and teacher.
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov understood and emphasized the importance of connecting to the Tzaddikim of the generation, the special individuals who are able to elevate each prayer to its proper place.
In this six-part course, we’ll discuss the spiritual and practical meaning of the Tzaddik, using Advice (Likutey Eitzot) as our guide. Join us and learn about a powerful key concept in Breslov Chasidut, one that is vitally important to the Jewish nation as well as to each individual.
