With the outbreak of the second wave of Coronavirus in Israel comes a new campaign called “Hisbodedus under the Mask” from Siach HaSadeh. The campaign connects the new phenomenon of everyone wearing masks with the Breslov practice of Hisbodedus. A person can now talk to Hashem wherever and whenever they want because nobody can see them talking under the mask. The campaign slogan is “Now it’s just you and your father”.
A certain Breslov mashpia stated in a shabbos drasha a few weeks ago that Breslov chassidim should get used to wearing a mask all the time because they will need to wear one during the journey to Uman this year.
