Uman Is Not Just For Men

Filmmaker Maya Batash’s spiritual journey began three years ago, when she took her first trip to Uman, Ukraine, to visit the gravesite of Rebbe Nachman, the father of the Breslov Hasidic movement. “Have you ever planned a journey somewhere but don’t know why you’re going?” Batash asked me recently, as she sipped herbal tea in a café in Forest Hills, Queens. “I heard Uman was a place men travel to, but I didn’t know what the point was...

A Prayer for Rosh HaShanah

One of Rebbe Nachman’s main teachings was to be with him for Rosh HaShanah. Ever since the pilgrimages in the times of the Rebbe, Breslover Chassidim from far and wide have done everything possible to heed his call. But so many of us have difficulties that seem to hold us back from traveling to the Tzaddik. Rebbe Nachman taught over and over again that the main obstacles are purely psychological and that our greatest weapons are...

Uman: Why YOU?

Uman: Why YOU?

Why You?               Why you? Because you owe it to yourself. You owe it to your neshamah, your soul. And you owe it to those you love. You even owe it to the entire world. What is it that you owe? You owe being the very best you that you can be. The soul of every Jew stems from the highest levels of Creation (see Likutey Moharan I, 17:2). God sends the soul of each Jew down into this lowly physical world so that it can be purified...

Uman: Why Now?

Two hundred years is a very long time. Since Rebbe Nachman’s passing on the 18th of Tishrei 5571 (October 16, 1810), the world has changed in countless ways. Many ideas that once captured the imagination have gone the way of the horse and buggy. Rebbe Nachman was once speaking about the achievements of the Baal Shem Tov and other tzaddikim. He said, “They succeeded in improving the world. But after those tzaddikim passed away,...

Why A Tzaddik? Why Rebbe Nachman? Why Uman?

Chances are you’ve been to Uman. If not, you certainly know someone who’s traveled to that now-famous Ukrainian town for Rosh HaShanah or another time of the year to pray at Rebbe Nachman’s gravesite. Maybe the prayers were for health, livelihood or children. Maybe they were prayers to find one’s soulmate, or to find oneself. Or maybe they were prayers for the will and the way to come closer to God. What is it about Uman that...

From Breslov To Uman: A Journal

The events in the following account of Rebbe Nachman’s move to Uman are true. All that we know about Rebbe Nachman’s life is based solely on Reb Noson’s writings, as none of the Rebbe’s other followers recorded anything for posterity. We have taken the liberty of telling the story of this journey as it might have been told by the Rebbe’s gabbai (personal attendant). The events of the Rebbe’s move can be found in Tzaddik...

Rebbe Nachman’s kever stays in Uman

In the last few years the issue of re-locating Rebbe Nachman’s kever (grave) to Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) has been bandied about a number of times. Usually, those who suggest the move are vociferous, well-meaning, but ignorant of Breslov tradition and, often, not even affiliated with Breslov in any way. Various reasons, many of them quite reasonable and sensible, are put forward as to why re-interring the Rebbe would be a...
