Person Lightly Injured in Uman Stabbing On Shabbos Afternoon

4

As thousands of Jews from all over the world gathered in Uman this weekend, some locals felt that the influx of people was not welcome. One Chassidic man was stabbed by a group of local men who accosted him in the street. The man was treated at the scene by United Hatzalah volunteers in Uman and taken to the local medical clinic in the city which is being operated this year by the organization. According to reports from Uman, the man was on his way to Mincha when he was attacked and stabbed.

He was Boruch hashem in stable condition, with light injuries reported.

More than 50,000 Jews have gathered in the city for Rosh Hashanah, many of which made their way to the city before Shabbos. On Sunday afternoon, the central “Tikkun Klali” will be said by all those gathered in the city.

Due to the high volume of travelers heading to Uman from Israel, Ben Gurion airport will be making an exception on Motzei Shabbat and allow flights to take off throughout the night.

  1. 50000 yidden is at least 50million in spend if everyone spent 1000 usd,which should be withheld,from places which were and still are anti-Semitic.
    Furthermore 50k men, means at least 250k family members left at home, for Rosh Hashono without a husband or father
    The numbers are mind boggling
    If Reb Chaim were asked surely he would say rather put the funds into kupat ha irr for Yom Tov
    Besides the fact that some are not able to control themselves there with the locals let’s just say it’s half of one percent that’s 250 chilul Hashems
    Even Reb Nachman would prefer them to stay at home to prevent even one chilul Hashem

  2. “Furthermore 50k men, means at least 250k family members left at home, for Rosh Hashono without a husband or father”

    Not disagreeing with the general issue, but 50,000 includes many single guys and multiple from same family.

    Point taken
    However I think you will find the average birth rate amoungst Uman goers is more than 4
    Furthermore if they leave their wife by herself, it’s worse. Then again some women may appreciate the break
