“Is attachment to tzaddikim idolatry?” This is the question answered by Chayei Nefesh, a book by Reb Gedaliah Aharon Kenig, a leading Breslever Chassid of the previous generation. He refutes the claim by those who use the famous holy work, Nefesh HaChaim, by R’ Chaim of Volozhin, foremost disciple of the Vilna Gaon, to prove their case.
Drawing from over 100 sources in traditional holy Jewish writings, what emerged was a work of profound scope on the anatomy of prayer, prophecy, and the role of the tzaddik, from the time of Adam until the Messiah. Presented here for the first time is an English translation of Reb Gedaliah’s work, known as Chayei Nefesh. In addtion, a short biography on his life is featured at the beginning of the book, as well as on the life of his teacher and mentor, Reb Avraham Sternhartz, zt”l, who led the previous generation of Breslev Chassidim in the Ukraine and Eretz Yisrael.
