Hasidic Jews on Pilgrimage to Uman, Ukraine: Festival for Rabbi Nachman Breslov on Rosh Hashana (video)


some images from Uman....


it was reported that for the first time (perhaps true, perhaps not) there was a Jewish wedding in Uman (on Erev Rosh Hashana) near the grave of Rebbe Nachman. According to the news reports it caused a fight as some Neturei Karta members (what were they doing in Uman anyway?) did not want it to happen (I dont know why - perhaps just not next to the grave itself). They got into a scuffle and then called the police, who came and detained the couple. A few minutes later they were released, and they held the wedding ceremony near the grave (but not right by it)...

  1. What is Neturei Karta doing in Uman? They don't have a Rebbe of their own???

  2. I dont have a precise answer for you,, but I would say that as you can see from the images, many of those traveling to Uman for Rosh Hashana are not necessarily Breslavers...

  3. my impression from the videos that there is more of an atmosphere of Purim than Rosh Hashana, though I have never been there

  4. Miriam,

    Of course they have their own Rebbe but he lives in Teheran and it is easier to get a visa to Uman.

  5. The Ukrainine police savored the job of beating, attacking and dispersing Jews congregating at a holy site. We can always thank NK for exploding all situations.
