Mystical Paths co-blogger R. Nati made the front cover of the Yiddish magazine below, Tzeitshrift, with a picture of his taken in Uman last year. The only sharing of this photo was via a Mystical Paths post, and hosted at Flickr.
Tzeitshrift, as an apparent mainstream Jewish publication in Yiddish, representing a portion of the Torah world, should be ashamed of themselves for this genava. They did not attribute R. Nati or Mystical Paths. Further, they misrepresented R. Nati as part of a Breslev offshoot known as Na Nachers, which R. Nati is not a part of. Rather, he is a talmid of HaRav Shalom Arush, shlita, which is mainstream Breslev. (This is not a statement against or for the Na Nach shita, just notes that it's not R. Nati's derech.)
Everyone makes mistakes, and Tzeitshrift is welcome to contact us to discuss how to correct their error. We maintain our contact information on the sidebar to the right.
Update: Mystical Paths thanks Daily Yid - a yiddish news blog portal, for the link.
Update: The stolen photo above can be seen in this Emunah video created and posted by Rabbi Nati in December, 2006. The photo is from his Rosh Hashanah Uman trip of 2006.
