Detail Description

The travels to Erez Israel of R. Nahman of Bratslav. Almost all of the extant Bratslav literature was committed to writing by Reb Nathan b. Naphtali Hertz Sternhartz, the Rebbe's disciple. Reb Nathan served as his scribe and literary secretary, despite the fact that he apparently was not a member of Nahman's most intimate circle. Only after his master's death did he assume a central position in Bratslav Hasidism. The first volume of Reb Nahman's theological teachings, Likkutei Moharan (Ostroy, 1806), was published during his lifetime without rabbinical approbation. The second volume, entitled Likkutei Moharan Tinyana (Mogilev, 1811), appeared posthumously. The tales which he began to relate in his last years (from 1806) are collected in Sippurei Ma'asiyyot (Berdichev, 1815), and constitute a special section of his work. Like his teachings, the tales focus on his major concept—i.e., his own essence and his messianic soul—and there is no doubt that they should be read as allegories relating to various aspects—mainly messianic—of his soul and life. The manuscript of his most esoteric work, which is referred to in Bratslav literature by its fate, Sefer ha-Nisraf ("The Burned Book"), was destroyed by Reb Nahman's orders in 1808. Except for a few hints, its contents are unknown. Another esoteric book has apparently survived in manuscript among the Bratslav Hasidim and is called Sefer ha-Ganuz ("The Hidden Book"), for which "the Messiah will give the interpretation."
