Sipurey Ma’asiyot (סיפורי מעשיות)
The world says that stories cause sleep, I say stories awaken from sleep!
Rabbi Nachman of Breslov.
Sipurey Ma’asiyot – This book is one of the best-known books of Rabbi Nachman of Breslev, which many wise people have delved into and written about. This is a book that is a collection of interesting and mysterious stories that take the reader to distant places. In fact, these stories are parables that hint at higher and hidden things in the upper worlds, and at what is done and will be done in our world from the creation of the world until the coming of our righteous Messiah. The stories also include the life story of each and every Jew, all that he will experience in his life, the difficulties and the trials.
These stories incorporate secrets and very high-level understanding by Rebbi Nachman. He wished to reveal such holiness by way of hints and parables.
Sipurey Ma’asiyot – these stories have the power to awaken man from his spiritual sleep. Sometimes, we fall into a state of spiritual sleep, without joy and life. One forgets the purpose for which one came into the world. These stories have a special virtue and enormous spiritual power to awaken man and put him back on The King’s path, breathe life into him, search for his purpose and destiny in life, and reach joy and happiness.
