sinning in Uman like the Golden Calf

Every year the arguments about traveling to Uman for Rosh Hashana repeat themselves. I have finally heard a new argument, and it is a bit shocking.

In an interview with Rav Yoel Bin Nun on the topic, he talks about how people should not got o Uman and Rav Nachman's neshama is not there and in Uman there is only tumah. When asked about the fact that people go there and get a spiritual high, he responded that people got a spiritual high from the Golden Calf as well - and until today we still suffer from that sin. The tumah creates a powerful atmosphere and the neshama of Rebbe Nachman is crying over the mistake of people going to Uman instead of to his neshama in Eretz Yisrael

comparing going to Uman to the sin of the Golden Calf is pretty harsh. It also gives the trip far more importance than it probably deserves
