COME SPEND ROSH HASHANA 5778 IN UMAN WITH RAV OFER EREZ
In Chayei Moharan, Rebbe Nachman famously taught:
My Rosh Hashanah is greater than everything. I cannot understand how it is that if my followers really believe in me they are not all meticulous about coming to me for Rosh Hashanah. No- one should be missing! My whole mission is Rosh Hashanah.
Everyone , without exception, who counts himself as one of my followers or takes heed of what I say should come to me for Rosh Hashanah. Anyone who is worthy of being with me for Rosh Hashanah should be very happy: “Go your way, eat the fat and drink the sweet, for the joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10 ) .
A little further on, in verse 405, Rebbe Nachman says that:
My Rosh Hashanah is something completely new – and God knows it is not something I inherited from my fathers. God Himself gave me the gift of knowing what Rosh Hashanah is. That all of you are dependent on my Rosh Hashanah goes without saying. The entire world depends on my Rosh Hashanah!
There have been few years where Rebbe Nachman’s words have been so prescient. As we head into 5778, North Korea is continuing to threaten the US with a nuclear strike, Iran is continuing to build missile launching facilities in Syria, a few scant kilometres from Israel’s border, and every corner of the world is being ravaged by awesome hurricanes, floods and wild fires.
We can all use all the help we can get to make this Rosh Hashana really count, spiritually, and to turn the spiritual balance in our favor. Which is why we have some very good news to share with you:
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, RAV OFER EREZ IS TAKING ENGLISH-SPEAKERS TO UMAN FOR ROSH HASHANA!
Rav Ofer Erez, shlita, has been taking hundreds and even thousands of people to Uman for Rosh Hashana for decades, but this is the first time ever that he’s agreed to chaperone a small group of English speakers, too.
Participants will recieve:
- A special bracha from the Rav, before Rosh Hashana
- The opportunity to pray with Rav Ofer Erez over the holiday and shabbat
- The opportunity to schedule a private meeting with Rav Ofer Erez, together with a translator (if required)
- And last but certainly not least, the spiritual ‘uplift’ of being by Rebbe Nachman for Rosh Hashana.
Hurry, because places are limited and Rosh Hashana is only two weeks away! If you’d like to spend Rosh Hashana with Rav Ofer and Rabbenu, please call:

And remember what Rebbe Nachman taught us:
The entire world depends on my Rosh Hashanah!
And as we head into 5778, it seems that we – and the world we live – could use all the help we can get.
