A Shabbos With Rabbi Peretz Auerbach of Jerusalem

A born and bred Brooklynite, Rabbi Peretz Auerbach made aliyah many years ago and learned from many masters until he became an accomplished scholar in all areas if Torah. Today he is one of the key figures in Breslov outreach. Rabbi Auerbach is presently working on a commentary on the Zohar in English, b'derekh avodah -- as related to spiritual practice, both in prayer, meditation, and the inner work of tikkun ha-middos / self-refinement. The Breslov Center and Congregation Sheves Achim / The Flatbush Minyan are honored to host him for this Shabbaton in Brooklyn on his spring trip to the US.

Reb Peretz was WONDERFUL!

He is an excellent communicator, humble and sweet, and can really "deliver the goods." (Plus he's an excellent acoustic player.) May this be the first of his events here in NY, and may he fill the shul next time!
