Discover the fascinating life story of early Hasidism’s greatest iconoclast. Descended from the founder of Hasidism, R. Yisrael Baal Shem Tov, R. Nachman of Breslov forged his own unique path before dying from tuberculosis at the young age of 38. Rather than founding a dynasty, his followers continued to revere him after he died, and he has a mass-following to this day.
What makes him so unique? Why do his works continue to enthrall both religious and secular Jews? And why do thousands of people travel to Uman in Ukraine each year, to be at his graveside for Rosh Hashana?
