Visitors Arrive in Uman for Rosh Hashanah


breslov-veils[Photos below.] The pre-Rosh Hashanah wave of visitors to the town of Uman in Ukraine is peaking with thousands boarding dozens of flights from Ben-Gurion International Airport to visit the kever of Rav Nachman of Breslov. Overall, some 40,000 people – Breslover chassidim and others – will spend Rosh Hashanah in Uman.

It is over 200 years since the petirah of Rav Nachman.

  1. PICTURE PERFECT NOT!!! stupid pic attachd to the heading thats not what uman is even if there are a few hundred nuts the overwhelming majority go for a ruchniyus dige aliya its not a coincidence that rav nachman has the biggest oilam on r”h please put an appropiate pic that captures the true essense

  2. They’re covering they faces for possibly two reasons;

    1) they didn’t want their faces photographed or,
    2) they are trying not to look at inappropriate things

    I guess both reasons are possible.

    Maybe the time has come to bring Rabbi Nachman’s Kever to Eretz Yisroel?

  3. 2. Comment from HudaleI hope they brought their wives and children along. Not doing so would be krum. BRINGING THEIR WIVES & CHILDREN
