About this organization






The founding of the Breslov Research Institute was an outgrowth of the outreach work of Rabbi Zvi Aryeh Rosenfeld, who brought the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (translation and commentary of Sippurey Ma’asiyot, parables and stories from Rebbe Nachman) to American shores beginning in the late 1940s.


Many Jews are unaffiliated and intimidated by organized Judaism, while others may be part of a Jewish community but still feel a lack of purpose and belonging. Yet ultimately, we each yearn for Jewish connection and meaning. To meet this spiritual and cultural need, the Breslov Research Institute (BRI) focuses its efforts on invigorating the Jewish soul through publishing and producing in all contemporary formats the timeless wisdom of Hasidic master, storyteller, and Kabbalist Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810). While the initial form of its work was achieved through translating and publishing Rebbe Nachman’s and most of his close disciple Reb Noson’s writings–a library comprised of more than 100 titles–the BRI mission has been to acquaint and expose people to the power of Breslov teachings through all forms of information exchange–publication, video, web-based lectures, animation, conferences, and visits to Rebbe Nachman and Reb Noson’s Eastern European home villages.
