This work has been divided into two parts, the first of which we are posting on the Breslov Center website. This consists of customs and hanhagos tovos, good practices, suggested by Rebbe Nachman and Reb Noson. The second part is more lengthy and consists of customs that are (or once were) prevalent among Breslover Chassidim.

The customs in Part II come from various sources: some from the Baal Shem Tov, in whose family circle the Rebbe was born and raised; others are generic Ukrainian Chassidic minhagim; customs from other places to which Breslover Chassidus spread, especially Poland and Eretz Yisrael; as well as personal minhagim of various Breslov leaders. We are still working on this part of the project.

In the meantime, though, we would like to make Part I, which is the most important material, available online. This is the kind of project that can go on forever. But we hope we will be able to make the whole book available a little earlier than that.
