Rebbe Nachman's Yartzeit / 18 Tishrei

This year Rebbe Nachman's yartzeit (18 Tishrei, which is is second day of Chol HaMo'ed Sukkos) will fall on Motza'ei Shabbos (Saturday night) Sept. 25, and Sunday, Sept. 26. It is customary for Breslover Chassidim to get together in honor of the yartzeit, share a meal or refreshments in the sukkah, and sing and discuss the Rebbe's life and teachings.

In Brooklyn, there will be public yartzeit se'udos on Motza'ei Shabbos in Williamsburg, beginning at 10:00 PM at the Avreichim Chassidei Breslov shul oat 36 Rutledge St. On Sunday afternoon beginning at 5:00 PM another gathering will take place at the Breslov Shul at 204 Lee Ave, also in Williamsburg.

We don't have any details about gatherings in Manhattan, but there should be something happening there, possibly at the Carlebach Shul. And there is usually a yahrtzeit even at the Breslov Shul in Monsey.

UPDATE: On Manhattan's Upper West Side: "Rabbi Nachman of Breslov 200th Year Yarzheit Sukkah Spectacular!"

The Carlebach Shul and Lincoln Square Synagogue have joined together to honor one of the greatest original thinkers of the 18th & 19th centuries. Lincoln Square Synagogue welcomes everyone to their beautiful Sukkah on Sunday, September 26th, from 7:00 pm - 10:0 pm.

Location: 200 Amsterdam Ave, @ West 69 st. NYC.
