Who Are You Doing Teshuvah For?

Getting to Uman

By Gedaliah Fleer Today it takes just a phone call to a travel agent to join the more than 35,000 people who spend Rosh HaShanah beside Rebbe Nachman’s gravesite in Uman. It wasn’t always that easy.

On the New Year, we are judged and awarded (or not), all the ‘stuff of life’ in this world—life, health, wealth and sustenance for the coming year.  What we’re given depends not [...]
