The Path of Bitachon as Explained by the Alter of Novardok
Reb Yosef Yoizel Horowitz, the Alter of Novardok, was a legendary figure whose teachings had a huge impact on the Torah world, both in his own time and also in ours. Thousands of talmidim followed the “Novardok derech,” which emphasizes the vital importance of character development and refinement. In his classic work, Madreigas HaAdam, the Alter offers perceptive insights into human behavior – and guidance in how to perfect ourselves.
Maamar Darchei HaBitachon is one of the best known essays in Madreigas HaAdam. In this incisive essay, the Alter applies his classic Novardok thought processes to the mitzvah of bitachon, trust in Hashem. He shows us how bitachon means to constantly live with trust in Hashem, and that we can, and should, strive to do so. He explores the essence of bitachon, what it demands of us, and how we can acquire deep trust in Hashem’s infinite goodness. And he makes clear to us how true bitachon leads to a life of serenity.
Madreigas HaAdam: Maamar Darchei HaBitachon includes a translation, elucidation, and notes on this seminal essay, as well as vignettes from the life of the Alter that relate to the topics discussed in the work.
With the brilliance and perception of the Alter of Navardok as our guide, we will find ourselves walking on the “Path to Bitachon” -- and dealing with life’s challenges with calm and tranquility, secure in our trust in Hashem and His goodness.
