Terminal 101: Using rsync locally

Thanks a lot for the syntaxis example, it is really handy, this seems to work like Robocopy in Windows O.S., In robocopy you can add options/args that helps to retry copy when a copy file fails,

I'm working on Mavericks right now, while doing a backup from a HD, it was going fine (even with the legend "error code -36", the copy continue to the next file) until accidentaly a workmate unpluged the power wire to my HD bridge, now while copying, everytime the error code -36 message apears the copy stops.

Is there some options within rsync that could work like robocopy args/options to retry copy 5 times (for example) and if the file is not possible to copy, continue the copy instead stoping the process?.
