Rosh Hashona is almost here that means for many it's time to go to...

Uman! That's right, thousands of Jews will pack their bags for the yearly pilgrimage to Uman: home of Rabbi Nachman Breslov.

“Last year there were people from 53 countries," explained Dov Kramer, the director of the International Charitable Fund of Rebbe Nachman, considered the central organization of the Bratslav Hasidic movement. "We had pilgrims from Iran, Iranian Jews. Many come from America, more than 1,000 annually, but most come from Israel."
