    I womder. Why ppl go to Uman for Rosh Hashana?
    Why not Yom Kippur?
    Why not tens of thousands come to the Ohel for Rosh Hashana?
    Why not to the Kotel?

    a great opportunity for Breslav Chassidim.
    What does a Lubavitcher go there for, we have a Rebbe?.

    Some of these pictures are disgusting and make a mockery of the sincere people who go to Uman for Rosh Hashana. Furthermore, I’m not surprised the locals hate the crowds, the filth & garbage – who cleans up? It’s a chilul Hashem. Don’t excuse it by saying the income the locals get from 3 days of visitors is more than they earn in a year – Jews are not animals. They shouldn’t act like that.

    This is truly amazing. Here is a Rebbe, long passed on some 200 years ago, with no replacement. Yet, so many thousands of Yidden, from all walks of life, spend lots of money, and endure less than convenient conditions to gain spiritual benefits there.

    Don’t forget why he chose to be buried in Uman, not Breslov. There was a massive pogrom in Uman, where tens of thousands of Yidden were murdered, Al Pi Kiddush Hashem. So, he thought it would be beneficial to the Neshamos there, if he would be among them.

    really beautiful

    I totally agree with #4. The pictures are disturbing. Why must frum Jews act like this? We are supposed to be an example to others.

    we can learn from them

    Why Lubavitchers in Uman Rosh Hashana, Mr. Woolstone? To fulfill the Rebbe’s Rotzon of Hafotza and Ahavas Yisroel (you should read the Rebbe’s letter of STRONG Chizuk [from the Igros] to Rabbi Yossel Mochkin, who was there with me, and was absolutely amazing). We build a Dirah b’Tactonim for unzer Rebbe and Chabad Rebbeim, in Uman. Lubavitchers who join us in Uman are Mishtatef in that Binyan. What have you done for the Rebbe lately, Mr. Woolstone?

    The official Ukrainian government count was 45 thousand. They always under estimate (their count comes from the official bus drop off point; people are coming in other ways). I believe the realistic estimate is 50,000 Jewish in Uman for Rosh Hashana.

    In the Bais Chabad tent we had over 300 people on Yom Tov (for Chassidus, davening, Kiddush, fahrbrengen).

    Dr. Binyomin Nemon, will you post your email address? My husband went and was a bit lost among so many non-English speakers. I think he would benefit more if he goes again to have a chabad English speaking contact. Thanks!

    why do u write 30 thousand? many more!

    i believe that from israel alone more than 34 k tickets were sold, which does not include people making their own arrangements.
    I think Dr Binyomin Nemons number of 50 k is closer to the truth
