Sayings of Rabbi Nachman

  It is a great Mitzvah to be Joyous Always!

  Know!, all the world is just a narrow bridge.
and the most important thing is not to be afraid!

  In reality, despair does not exist!

  Talking to G-d in your own language and way is a very high level!

  Even in the lowest pit of hell, one can be close to G-d!

  People who talk during prayers show they have no real faith in G-d!

  If you believe you can destroy then believe you can build!

  Gevald! (=Oh my goodness) Do not despair!

  Everyone must study a Bible Teaching daily, without fail!

  G-d is always good!

  G-d thirsts for you to talk to him!

Breaking News: The Pacific Torah Institute (the first Yeshiva in the Pacific Northwest) has just finished its first and highly successful year!

At the Yeshiva’s (which is a Chofetz Chaim affiliate) recently held Founders Dinner, the official naming of the Yeshiva took place. Rabbi Yosef Wosk had the great privlage and honour of naming the facility after his late father Morris Wosk, of blessed memory. The new name will be Tiferes Moshe Aaron Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva, or something very close to it. It is a wonderful institution, run by two wonderful Rabbi’s; Rabbi Noam Abramchik and Rabbi Dovid Dovidowitz, who act as Deans to the Yeshiva. If you wish to contact them you may do so at 604-261-1502. A Beis Medrash program runs as well; with older boys learning at the Yeshiva on a rotating basis throughout the year.

Yasher Koach, may you go from strength to strength!

A Brief History of Breslov in Vancouver

This site is here mainly as a resource page for those traveling to British Columbia. There are no Breslovers as such living in Vancouver. But there are some that have an affinity for Rabbi Nachman and his followers.

The Vancouver Breslov Website page reflects several different ideas.  The main idea is to set up "Breslov Study Groups", and the name "The Breslov Connection" implies the very minimal goal of facilitating people to set up Breslov chavrusas and getting connected / becoming aware of other Bresovers and authentic Breslover Resources.  It is possible to do much, much more,  with this concept, but we need to set the foundation first.
