Rabbi Eliezer Berland shlit"a. Rabbi Berland was born in 1937, in Haifa, and was recognized as an unusually gifted student even in his youth. He studied in the yeshiva of Kfar Chassidim and was very close to two of the Torah and Mussar giants of the previous generation, Rabbi Eliyahu Lopian and Rabbi Dov Yaffo. After his marriage, Rabbi Berland joined the Ponevizch kollel and later the kollel Volozhin in Bnei Brak. He was also a student of the Steipler Gaon, Rabbi Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky zt”l.
   Afterwards, he came into contact with Breslov Chassidism and became a close disciple of some of the elder Breslovers of the previous generation including Rabbi Shmuel Shapira and Hirsch Leib Lepel. His main connection, however, was to the virtual leader of the Breslov Chassidim at that time, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Bender, zt”l. 
   Rabbi Berland has spent decades drawing disillusioned Jews back to Judaism. In the course of his efforts, he has brought tens of thousands of Jews back to the path of Torah observance.
   Today, Rabbi Berland dedicates the majority of his time to providing guidance and instruction to the many students and others who come to his home, both day and night. He delivers a weekly lecture to the community every Shabbos after the morning prayers. Rabbi Berland and his wife, Rebetzin Tehilla Berland, devote most of their time to helping and offering guidance to the students of the yeshiva and their families, as well as to those who approach them from outside the community.

In response to a number of emails we have posted some information on the subject of Pidyon Nefesh, here.

The Yeshiva recently started putting out a weekly Parsha Sheet made up of excerpts from lessons given by the Rav. We hope to translate these lessons, and put them up week by week, here.

 

Due to limitations in the funding of this website, we are only able to process a small number of new shiurim.  If you 
would like to sponsor a shiur or have a shiur donated in the memory of a loved one, please contact us for details.

Prayers written by HaRav Eliezer Berland shlit"a for:
Purim, Pesach, Lag B'Omer, Chanuka, Shavuos and Tu B'Shevat.
(All these prayers were written in the year 5754, 1993-4, as each festival came along the Rav wrote a prayer for it.)

 
 Lessons given by the HaRav Eliezer Berland shlit"a on Shabbos and Festivals:

   We have recorded as much as we managed to remember from the lessons, including a few of the sources. But, in truth, it is little more than a few excerpts from each lesson. Should it happen that there is any kind of special event taking place that Shabbos or Festival, or during the following week, for instance a Wedding or Bris Milah or a Bar Mitzvah, it will often be referred to in the lesson. The Shabbos lesson starts each week with a quote from one of the stories by Rabbi Nachman.

   Excerpts from lessons from Sefer Bereishis, Parshas: Noach, Lech Lecha, Vayera, Chaye Sarah, Toldos, Vayeshev, Mikeitz, Vayechi.
