This year in Uman was a very unique blend of old and new. There was everything from push carts to an internet cafe and pubs.
Being there one would have to find perspective. “Where there is garbage there you will find the flies. But where there is honey you’ll find lots of flies.” So this year 5771, 200 years of Uman Rosh Hashanah, was kaleidoscope of distractions.
But for those that know what there is to be gained from focusing on the truth found a gold mine. Those fortunate enough to be focus came in contact with a higher reality, to connect with the Tzaddik and to come away with the vessels to hold the light and spiritual bounty of the New Year.
