Gallery: Jewish pilgrimage to Uman

In one of the largest annual Jewish pilgrimages to any site outside of Israel, tens of thousands of Hasidic Jews flocked to the city of Uman – 200 km outside of Kiev – this week to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the start of a new year in the Jewish calendar.
Uman is home to the grave of Rabbi Nachman, the founder and spiritual leader of the Hasidic Breslov movement. He died in 1810.

My God it takes an ocean of trust, it takes an effort it does…


Roll up and shine
