Journey to Uman

joshuayumpu

Every year, thousands of Breslover Chasidim and other faithful adventurers make a pilgrimage to Uman — located between Kiev and Odessa — to visit the grave of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov.

This is the true story of young Rabbi Gedalia Fleer who risked his life at the height of the Cold War to make the pilgrimage — thereby opening up the gravesite to visitors in the modern era.
