On the Tenth of Teves 5605 (December 20, 1844) Rav Nasan ben Chayah Laneh / ben Rav Naftali Hertz (Sternhartz) returned his pure soul to the Creator. Through his prolific writing, Rav Nasan of Nemirov made it possible for the teachings of Rebbe Nachman to reach every one of us today. Commemorative shiur given by Rabbi Zvi Aryeh Rosenfeld z”l on the 10th of Teves.
During his last hours in this world Rav Nasan spoke of the three elements that define a Breslover chassid:
1) Going to Uman for Rosh HaShanah
2) Studying the Shulchan Arukh every day
3) Doing hisbodedus – praying in solitude – every day.
(Siach Safei Kodesh 168)
In honor of Rav Nasan’s yahrzeit, we’ve made the first chapter of Orach Chaim available. Our goal is to be adding the shiurim in order from there, b’ezras Hashem. We hope these recordings encourage you to complete the entire Shulchan Arukh in light of Rabeynu’s Torah. B’hatzlacha! The first halacha begins here: Hashkamas HaBoker.
