The Breslov campaign to subsidize tickets to Uman for Rosh Hashanah is attracting many people, as over 9,000 tickets have already been sold. On Monday night, the community’s leader Rabbi Eliezer Berlind Shlita left for the U.S. where he hopes to raise significant funding to assist in covering the cost of the Uman Rosh Hashanah and other projects affiliated with the chassidus. The rav will be in the United States for up to one week, during which time he will attend dinners and other fundraising events and meeting with philanthropists.
Chadrei Chareidim reports the rav will be hosted by the Spinka Rebbe Shlita.
Breslov officials report a total of 10,000 subsidized tickets are being sold, at the cost of 6 million NIS and this is the sum R’ Berland hopes to raise during this visit.
