BreslovBreslov is the name commonly given to one of the movements within Hasidism. Breslovers are Orthodox Jews who follow the teachings of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov.
Breslover Chassidism is most unusual in that it has no living rebbe, and has not had one for almost two hundred years. In 1805, upon Rabbi Nachman's death, it was decided not to select a new leader for the movement, but to study rather the teachings left behind by Nachman.
Breslovers describe themselves as dedicated to fulfilling the spirit of the Torah's laws, as well as the letter of them: they see Torah living as the means to a joyful existence. They do not restrict themselves to Nachman's commentaries on the Torah, but study many of the classic texts, including the Tanakh, the Talmud, the Midrash, and many others. Breslov communities exist in several locations in Israel, as well as in major cities around the world that have large Jewish populations (including Los Angeles, New York, and London).
