Thousands of visitors are expected this coming Shabbos, Shabbos Chanukah, at the tziyun of Rav Nachman of Breslov ZT”L and preparations are underway.

Not that many years ago, the tziyun was all but empty around the year with the exception of Tishrei, but today; there are visitors year-round, a hotel and stores serving the visitors.

Nati Austri, who is the United Hatzalah commander for the upcoming Shabbos Chanukah, reports the international dispatcher will be operating during Chanukah, and anyone with a medical emergency should call 063-800-1221, a local Ukraine number, and the closest EMS volunteers will be dispatched. United Hatzalah adds that these volunteers, as well as those in Eretz Yisrael, operate under the direction of the organization’s rabbonim regarding hilchos Shabbos.

  1. “Stay in the Aretz as we have many Tzadikim here.”

    According to some hassidim, Rebbi Nachman was the greatest thing ever. Smarter than any Tanna, Amora, or Rishon.

  2. yidden are not crazy ! you need to ask yourself what is it thats pulling people of all levels from bnei aliyah to yidden who seem very weak in shemiras hamitzvos , finally it seems that many go back year after year if it was just a fad they wouldnt do that?

  3. This going 3 times a year is a new Minhag they made up recently, This isn’t about going to daven at Kivrei Tzaddikim. These people really think they are spending time with their rebbe. I’m happy for all the people who built hotels there. Works out well for them.
