 REBBE NACHMAN
Rebbe Nachman was born in 1772 in the Ukrainian town of Medzeboz.
Instead of appointing a new Rebbe, they continued to turn to Rebbe Nachman's teachings for inspiration and guidance and still looked on him as `the Rebbe.' The Breslover Chassidim have done so ever since, studying his writings and endeavoring to follow his teachings in their day-to-day lives.
Rebbe Nachman's own closest disciples, themselves outstanding Tzaddikim and scholars, handed his teachings on to their own pupils, thus establishing the continuity of the movement.

Israel could once and for all get out of the business of protecting its borders and not only redeem Jewish captives from Russia and Ethiopia and Sudan, but begin the greater assignment of repairing the injustices of all the oppressed everywhere.

And though he was identified with a movement as old world as chasidism, in the rebbe’s later years he was one of the first to utilize such 21st century technology as the Internet, with www.Chabad.org attracting 50,000 visitors a day (500,000 before holidays), and satellite television transmissions and international link-ups broadcasting major Chabad events.
The rebbe is seen in his full rainbow of activity — counseling a new convert and giving instructions for that convert’s welcome into his new community; advising politicians; waving his arm like a cowboy wielding a lasso when leading wild singing at a fabrengen, his famous gatherings of Torah learning, vodka and chasidic camaraderie.
The rebbe, accompanied by his closest aide, Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky (now one of the administrators of international Chabad), used to come to the Ohel tomb several times a week when only his father-in-law, the previous rebbe, was interred there.

Being the leader of his generation, and understanding the relationship between Israel and her leaders, his suffering allowed it to be that for the entire 13 years not a single woman in all Israel died in childbirth nor did a single pregnancy miscarry.
Rebbe said to it, "For this you were created." Rebbe wasn’t being callous with the animal.

Rabbi Benzion Halberstam’s rapid acclamation, despite the opposition of a group of dissident Bobovers who favor one of Rebbe Naftuli’s sons-in-law as spiritual leader of one of the major chasidic groups, reflects the tradition of determining a rebbe’s successor that prevails in most chasidic sects.
The successor usually is one of the previous rebbe’s sons, a close relative or a philosophical protege.
Rebbe Shlomo, in his early 20s after the Holocaust, immigrated to the United States after the war with a young Naftuli.

 Lazer Beams: Does Halacha require a person to move to Israel?
He adds that one must make painstaking effort to fulfill all of Hashem's commandments in the Land of Israel, and strive to be much more observant and G-d-fearing than he or she was while living outside of the Land of Israel, because Israel is the King's palace.
If this is the case, then the Land of Israel itself will protect a person from sinning; even if a person has a mishap and does sin accidentally, the sanctity of the land will help the person atone and cleanse his or her soul.
Rebbe Nachman of Breslev said, "My place is only in Israel." He instructed his disciples to pray, yearn, and try their very best to merit settling in the Land of Israel, saying that they who dwell in Israel bring a victory for Holiness (Seder Hayom, clause 27).

 Through the Eyes of a Woman: Re'eh: Living in Eretz Yisrael
The Rebbe is not saying that people should not come to Israel; the Rebbe is simply clarifying certain issues regarding coming to Israel.
Israel is regarded as the King's palace, and there are certain rules of conduct in the King's palace which do not necessarily apply in some far-away corner of the kingdom.
The factors by which a person decides to go and live in Israel are often very noble and very spiritual, but may in fact cause them to evade their true responsibility and mission in life.

 Orign of Children's Sefer Torah
The Rebbe paid special attention to the sensitivities of young children by directing that they should only be told which parsha contained their letter rather than knowing exactly which letter they had been given.
The Rebbe often mentioned it when people requested blessings on behalf of their children and would emphasize that a letter could be purchased as soon as a child was born.
The Rebbe wrote that he had given her the dollars for those of her children who already had a letter in the Sefer Torah.

The Rebbe saw him as a scion of the great anti-Semites of old, professing the legendary brutality and Jew-hatred of Nebuchadnezzar (ancient king of Iraq and Babylonia, arch-hero of Saddam),
"Israel is the safest place in the world." Indeed, despite Iraq launching 39 Scud missiles at Israel, not one death could be contributed directly to those attacks.
