Outpouring – Introduction – Part 01

Tefilah (Jewish prayer) in light of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov.

Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon. This anthology of Rabbi Nachman’s teachings about tefila (prayer) began as a small collection called Hishtapkhus Hanefesh (Outpouring of the Soul). It was compiled by Rabbi Moshe Yehoshua Bezhilianski (known as Reb Alter of Teplik) and first published in Jerusalem about 1904. The sefer explains Rabbi Nachman’s re-introduction of hisbodedus – literally “seclusion” – (voluntary prayer in one’s own words) in addition to the traditional mandatory prayers included in the siddur (Jewish prayer book).
