R' Naftali Citron on Chabad, Breslov, and Reb Shlomo - Response by R' Dovid Sears

Longtime friend of the SC Jewish community Rabbi Naftali Citron, and now the rov of the Carlebach Shul in New York, has recently spoken about the differences between Chabad and Breslov approaches to Chassidus, and hinted at why Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach took the path he did.

Rabbi Dovid Sears, a well-known Breslov author and teacher, takes issue with Rabbi Citron's comments.

Both the original piece and the reply are well written and great reading for anyone interested in Chassidus and Reb Shlomo.

i didn't read R' Citron's response yet, but that was a very well-written piece by R' Sears. a colleague of mine had asked me what the difference is between how Chabadniks view the Rebbe, and how Bretzlovers view Reb Nachman, which wasn't covered in the post. Maybe you could explain a bit about that difference yourself?
