On erev Shabbos Nachamu 5773 there was a break-in at the Tziyun of Rav Nachman in Uman, the tent area specifically. The security guard was attacked and the thieves made off with a safe which according to officials contained a large sum of money as efforts ahead of Rosh Hashanah are well underway.
In the struggle with the thieves the guard, a local non-Jew, was beaten badly and he was admitted to a local hospital with his condition described as “grave”.
The attack comes as hundreds of women from around the world will be spending Tu B’Av at the tziyun amid increased security.
