From Medvdevka, R’ Nachman made aliyah to the Holy Land in 1798-1799. In 1800, shortly after Adil’s wedding, he moved to Zlatipolia. There the Rebbe encountered major difficulties from R’ Aryeh Leib, the “Shpola Zeida”, who originally was a close friend of the Rebbe, and now became his embittered enemy. Two bitter years of relentless opposition brought Rabeinu to ask his uncle, R’ Baruch of Mez’boz’ , his advice. R’ Bauch advised him to move to the town of Breslov. At the end of the summer of 5562, Rabeinu established his home in Breslov. As much as the move was a necessary flight from controversy, it was also a watershed for Breslover Chassidus.
-Likutey Halachos: The “Collected Laws”, Reb Noson’s magnum opus. A monumental, eight volume work of Breslov thought,it follows the order of topics in the Shulchan Aruch. With Likutey Moharan as his basis, Reb Noson focuses on the inner aspects of Halachah through an ethical eye. He highlights many of the major concepts in a compltely unique and unparalleled way, and shows their practical application and their interrelationship with all aspects of life for a Jew. People have been known to randomely open Likutey Halachot and find Reb Noson speaking directly to them, on the topic closest to thei hearts at that very moment. There is nothing quite like it in all our holy writings and the Likutey Halachos discourses are easy to follow, provided one has a command of Hebrew. Though the structure of each discourse inhibits a literal English tranlation, parts of Likutey Halachos have appeared in “Tefilin”, “Garden of the Souls”, “Azmra”,”Ayeh”, “Tsohar”, and “Mayim”.
