A7 Radio's "Lazer Beams" with Lazer Brody
Follow Israel Radio on
One of Rebbe Nachman's famous thirteen tales is the “Tale of the King's and and the Maid's son”, where a mischievous midwife switched the queen's baby and the maidservant's baby at the time of birth. This is an amazing allegory about the Jewish people today, especially relevant to Shabbat Zchor.
Multi-talented author, speaker, composer and spiritual guide, Rabbi Lazer Brody came to Israel from the USA in 1970 after graduating from the University of Maryland’s College of Agriculture. A decorated veteran of an elite IDF Special Forces Unit, he left his mountaintop farm in Samaria in 1982 and began intensive Torah studies that led to his rabbinical ordination in 1992. Rabbi Brody pens the award-winning Lazer Beams weblog http://lazerbrody.typepad.com/ , is the English-language editor of Breslev Israel web magazine http://breslev.co.il/ , and the author of numerous books in Hebrew and English including the highly-acclaimed 'The Trail to Tranquility'. His translation of 'The Garden of Emuna', written by his rabbi and spiritual guide Rav Shalom Arush shlit’a, has become an international best seller. In addition, Rabbi Brody’s original Calming Waters album is an exquisite collection of his soul-healing flute melodies. He hosts the Lazer Beams podcast every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Israel time on Israel National Radio.
