Hagaon HaRav Yaakov Meir Shechter Is Traveling To Uman For Rosh Hashanah

HaGaon HaRav Yaakov Meir Shechter Shlita is planning to spend Rosh Hashanah in Uman, joining tens of thousands of mispallalim who are spending Rosh Hashanah at the tziyun of the tzaddik Rav Nachman ZT”L. According to the B’Chadrei Chareidim report, Rav Schecter, who in past years did not travel to Uman, will not be davening in the main Kloiz minyan but his kehilla will be making its own minyan. Rav Meir is expected to fly in a private plane on Thursday, 23 Elul, after expressing his wish to travel to Uman for Yomtov. The last time he was there for Yomtov was more than 30 years ago, in 5749. Those in the know explain that thousands of Rav Shechter’s followers will be heading to Uman as a result of his decision to do so. (YWN – Israel Desk, Jerusalem)
