Israel - New Stamp Honors Rabbi Nachman of Breslov

Israel - The Israel Post company has issued a new stamp marking 200 years since the death of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, whose philosophy of uniting faith and joy is practiced by tens of thousands of Jews worldwide.

Among his sayings are, “It is in our interest to see everything as being for the best,” “It is a great mitzvah to always be happy” and “There is no despair at all in the world.”

His teachings of expressing happiness as a matter of faith helped Jews cope with difficulties during a period when many were downtrodden and poor. Rav Nachman, as he is known to his followers, expressed a special love for the Land of Israel and the Jewish People, whom he encouraged to discover the “song of life.”

He died at the age of 39 in 1810. The new stamp is based on a painting by Breslov Rabbi Yisrael Yitzchak Bezanson, who recreated a 1922 photograph of Breslov Hassidim at the grave of Rav Nachman.

His followers have gathered at Rav Nachman’s grave in Uman, Ukraine every year, except for the years when the custom was interrupted during the Communist regime.

More than 20,000 pilgrims visit the site every year and also celebrate the Rosh HaShanah New Year holiday in Uman. Rav Nachman promised, “My light will burn until the coming of the Messiah.”

The old Breslov synagogue in Uman appears to the right of the stamp in the background of the painting. The Communist regime confiscated the property and used it as a factory, and Breslov followers so far have failed to redeem the structure and restore it as a place of worship.

Breslov is NOT NaNach! The NaNach fringe associate themselves with Breslov, but they should not be confused with the large Breslov community worldwide who does not accept their nonsense.

Personally, I think it's past time for the Breslov leadership to strongly condemn NaNach.

The Breslover leadership that condemns Na Nach only does so because they're insulted that their are groups of happy people that cant be controlled by them. The main stream Breslov leaders are very arrogant and believe that they should determine who is called a Breslover and who isn't. Rebbe Nachman advocated very much for the expression of the individual Neshoma, which is very much what the Na nach group tries to represent. How can you look down on a group of people who sing , dance, and try to make other Jews happy?

Israel putting a rabbi on a stamp isn't very newsworthy. If the US puts a rabbi on a stamp, then I would be much more impressed. Even more impressive than that though would be if Egypt issues a Rambam stamp. He was after all, the person physician of Saladin, the Egyptian leader.

There has already been a rabbi on a US postage stamp.

I found this at jewishstamps.com

"Bernard (Dov) Revel (September 17, 1885-1940) was an Orthodox rabbi and scholar. He served as the first President of Yeshiva College from 1915 until his death in 1940. The Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University is named for him.

In 1986, he appeared on a $1 U.S. Postage stamp, as part of the Great Americans Series."

I think you are confused. Breslov leadership condems NaNach because they are insulted that there are a group of pot smoking drugged up Yidden with payos running around defacing property and doing nothing but sing Na Nach. A Chasid is someone who has a Rebbe and LISTENS or at least aspires to listen to what they demand of them.

So I ask you Na Nacher who is the Real emesdike Breslover

Do you learn through the entire Shulchan Aruch and Shas in a year? Do you also in a years time learn all of Tanach? What about all of likutey moharan, halachos, tefillos, etc? If you are a real Breslover chasid you are so busy learning Torah and teaching it to klal yisroel that you wouldnt have a single second to stand on top of a van on ben yehudah st. dancing to Trance.

No one is "looking" down on you for singing, dancing, and trying to make other Jews happy. Just dont fool yourself in thinking that Rebbe Nachman ZT"L the Gadol HaDor of his generation would get nachas knowing what Na Nach does in his name.

Thank you. The whole chasidus breslev is an excuse for corrupt power gains. It's not possible to harness such power, and call one's self an official leader of R. Nachman's derech (way). Those so called breslev leaders or chassidim or whatever, have only the name in common with R. Nachman. The books are considered the only way to get to know R. Nachman. And.. Hey wait! The main thing those Na Nachers do is print and distribute those books at cost of printing. Wow. Imagine that

Everyone already knows that nanachs don't do drugs, and they only put graffiti on property that is already messed up, but you should be quite ashamed of yourself for saying such ugly things and accusations on those Jews that do such nice kiruv with their vans. Shame on you. How could you say such nasty stuff about them then on top of it you say R. Nahcman would not be happy that they are doing kiruv in his name, in accordance with his last will and testimate. Please repent from being such a rasha. I guarantee you your machlokes is not "machlokes between tzadikim " but evil machlokes based on the evil inclination. Only big tzadikim can do good for the world making machlokes. But the way you speak, it's obvious that you make unworthy machlokes and all that does is increase suffering in the world. Don't be a bum.

The respectable "breslev" community has already condemned Na Nach! See a file on YouTube.com entitled "simply pedophilia tzfat" to hear about the "breslov gedolim" that have come out against Na Nach. Pedophilia is refering to the "mainstream breslev" community". The ones that love talking about how Na Nach kiruv project does not really represent R. Nachman

Oh right. That's like the chasidim. It is said the Baal Shem Tov was seen crying and said " I see that in the future there will be Jews that will claim to be going in my derech, but they are not doing so at all". This is like the breslev leaders. They want to control people even though the Rabbi, and his grandfather the Baal Shem wanted to make everyone into great tzadikim. Not followers of some beinonee. How would it look if someone claimed to be a Rochel Imainu leader. Or a Rashbi leader.

Maybe the ignorant will believe you but anyone who has any experience with Na Nach, and Real Breslov Chassidus knows the truth. There has ALWAYS been a chain of Rabbonim in Breslov and none of them claim to be THE REBBE. You should be ashamed of yourself for making Breslov the laughing stock of the Torah world like the Meshichist have Chabad. All the Chesed and Emes brought forth from both groups is now in vain because everyone thinks Breslovers are a bunch of pot smoking morons. The way you speak its obvious you are part of the Na Nach cult. Please tell me where the Na Nach yeshiva is that learns the seder demanded from Rebbe Nachma ZT"L? Where are they learning Gemara, and Nach, and Chassidus from morning till night? You arent a Chasid of the Rebbe if you dont follow he demands. Thank G-d he vowed that even a Na Nach who gives a penny to charity and davens at his kever on Rosh Hashanah will be pulled out of Gehenom by their pot filled payos. A true Breslover would never call any Torah Jew who disagrees with him a Rasha. I never called you a Rasha CV"S. You just arent a Chasid.

The teachings of R Nachman are intended for a all people. It's not for anyone to say who is a real chosid and who isn't. You can condemn them all you want,(as you so nicely did)"Where are they learning Gemara, and Nach, and Chassidus from morning till night?". However, If you can judge an entire group in such a manner then obviously you're missing the most simple crucial teaching of Rebbe Nachman, which is to look for the good in others. It doesnt matter how much gemara, nach, halacha one learns, as Rebbe nachman himself said that one can a Talmid chocham and not be a tzadik, as well as one being a lamdan and still being a rasha. Rebbe Nachman also states that one can be quite unlearned and still be a Tzadik. Dont judge...

why do you care so much what others are thinking? Rebbe Nachman didn't. As a matter of fact, anyone who contributed anything to the world starting from Noach through Avroham Avinu, Yosef Hatzadik, Moshe Rebbeinu, Dovid Hamelech, all had people telling them that they were wrong. the fact that your protesting na nach so strong only means that their is something substantial here that you don't have keli for, and therefore feel threatened by it.

It's time the world should know the source of "na nach." the so-called "petek" that Odesser found in his Likutei Moharan was written about 80 years ago by Rabbi Yoel Ashkenazi of Tveria, in order to make Odesser feel good after being harressed by slonimer chasidim. He sent the "petek" to Poland and the Breslover chasidim who all said it was nonsense. Odesser hid it until he was over 90 years old and was halfway senile and in an old age home, when a few French balei tshuva found him and he revealed them the "petek", and the rest is history.
The "na nach" hippies have nothing with Breslov, and it's painfull to see that there are still people out there who confuse them as Breslov. A real Breslover Chasid learns and davens

The point of the teachings of Rebbe Nachman were to strengthen the neshoma of the individual where they didn't need to be dependent or rely on some Admor, like a puppy on a leash, which you propose is the right Breslov. People believe in manhigim because they don't believe in themselves. Rebbe Nachman once told Rebbe Nosson that one can have all the emunah in hashem that he wants, however if one doesn't believe in himself he will never get anywhere. Rebbe Nachman was trying to give the people the awareness of their own great neshoma, the awareness of their uniqueness and their own individualism. The Rebbunim today on the other hand because of their lack of Emunah in the Greatness of Hashem and the Tzadik, try to take back all that Rebbe Nachman tried to give. Meaning instead of giving their chasidim freedom and independence like Rebbe Nachman advocated, they just throw everyone in the same box so that they can control them easier, which is why the idea of na nach drives them absolutely nuts, because it's not something that they can control.

When R' Yisroel Odesser was in the U.S he met with R' Moshe Feinstein, R' Moshe wrote a letter of approbation for R Yisroel, (in order to collect funds to print sforim). In this letter which R' Moshe wrote he praised R' Yisroel extensively, as well as referring to the Petek as "a pela"(a great wonder). People have called his son R' Dovid Feinstein and he has confirmed this event. Look it up,do your homework or perhaps you think that R' Moshe was also senile when he wrote this letter.

Unfortunately today breslov has been hijacked by individuals who don't care about the soul of the Tzadik, but rather about the intellectual part of breslov, much like the chasidim today who claim to be followers of the Holy Bal Shem Tov. These people have taken the name of these great Tzadikim and used it to advance their aspirations of power and control, building big fancy shuls ,Mikvahs, Yeshivas,etc. The Bal shem as well as Rebbe Nachman were about the simple Jew aspiring to love and serve Hashem in their own unique way, unlike the corporation chasidim today, as well as your "real emisdike Breslover" groups which only exist to stifle the growth of the real followers of the Tzadikim, the ones that you probably put down because they don't fit in to your limited understanding of what a sincere yid really is.

R. Mottel of Slonim was a close friend of the young "Saba", Rav Odesser. According to the testimony of Rav Yisroel Ber Odesser,When Yisroel Ber showed the petek to Rav Mottel, that fateful day, the 22nd of Tammuz in 1922, Rav Mottel laughed so hard, he almost died. He was known to never laugh. He told young Saba that he would prove the letter was fake (even though it's in Rav Nachman's holy handwriting, but there wasn't such easy access to graphology at that point, so on with the maaseh). So Rav Mottel interviewed everyone from the community, thus verifying that his original idea was wrong. If so, said Rav Mottel, Yisroel Ber has recieved a letter from heaven, and I, Rav Mottel, retract my previous opposition to Rav Nachman and his derech. Saba tells that afterward, Rav Mottel tried to change the ways of other karliners, but even though everyone had high regard for Rav Mottel, they rejected his new ideas. After all, most "chasidim" had been against Rav Nachman for a hundred years. It was tradition. And you don't break tradition! Feel bad for you dude.

Well Rabbi Nachman said that for all the chasidim that opposed him, they were surely picturing some person that eats on fast days (that's what they were saying about him at first, but we see that even NaNachers take that stuff seriously, because Saba's whole downfall into depression, the one that led to the arrival ofthe letter from heaven, came because he broke the fast of 17th of Tammuz ) R. Nachman said if he really were like that, then it would be fitting to oppose him strongly. To say he isn't really a worth leader of the Jews.
