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...

Ask A Breslover: Why don’t you turn your wives into Chassidim?

Q: Rebbe Nachman once asked, “Why don’t you turn your wives into Chassidim?” What does that mean to us? A: This is a tough one, I have heard several different approaches. Some are conservative and some are modern. As is the norm in Breslov Chassidus, Rebbe Nachman spoke in universal terms and his teachings apply differently to each individual. I suppose that it depends on your upbringing, community and marriage...

Israel’s Foreign Ministry to take control of Uman?

Reports from the Israeli Chareidi Press (Kikar Shabat News Service) indicate that the Israeli Government is negotiating a deal with the Ukrainian Government in regards to the administration of the Uman holy sites. After attempts made by the State to bring the remains of Rebbe Nachman Za”l to Israel failed due to the protest of the Breslov Hasidim, Foreign Ministry officials are now attempting to come to an agreement where the...

Let The Healing Begin

I’m choosing to write about this for Parashat Shekalim because part of the story takes on a Shabbat Parashat Shekalim long ago, and because I had the privilege to be in Uman this week, to say the Tikkun HaKlali (General Rectification/Remedy) at Rebbe Nachman’s gravesite. For those of us who don’t know, the Tikkun HaKlali is a set of ten Psalms* that Rebbe Nachman prescribed to be said in the event of a “nocturnal emission” (onanism)....

Report: Rebbe Noson’s Kloiz (Synagogue) Restored to the Chassidim

According to a report in the Kyiv Post, ownership of the synagogue Rebbe Noson built called the “kloiz” has finally been restored to the Breslover Chassidim. Here is the original article: Hasids who come to Uman, Cherkasy region of Ukraine, to visit the grave of their spiritual leader Tsadik Nahman every year can now use the building of a former synagogue, Serhiy Tulub, the head of the Cherkasy region’s...

Bringing young boys to Uman

Q: I’m doing research for a writing project. I once heard that R’ Nachman of Breslov promised something regarding boys under a certain age who say tikkun klali at his kever.  Is this true? If yes, what was the promise? A: Shalom! Rebbe Nachman zal said that if one brought his son to him before the child was seven years old, the child would come to the chupah with a “reineh hemdel” (clean shirt), i.e., a...

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...

What Women Seek in Uman

We’ve all heard about the tens of thousands of men who fly to Uman for Rosh HaShanah; many of us know someone who goes every year. What’s less well known is that each year an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 women make the same journey. They don’t go for Rosh HaShanah; Breslov rabbanim are outspoken about women not traveling to Uman for Rosh HaShanah due to tzniyus concerns. But throughout the year they come. Like their male counterparts,...
