a special security force comprised of Breslov Hasidim who served in the army

"Hassidim who served in the army"? Are you even allowed to use those two words in a single sentence?

Anyway, from the supplied picture it looks like they will have a blast! Enjoy!

Is this a prudent use of limited resources in a community with significant poverty issues? Assuming each attendee spends $1,000 between airfare, food, and lodging, if 25,000 people attend that's a total expenditure of $25,000,000.

More cultish bullshit. These pigs should donate the money spent on this hedonism to the poor. There's no commandment or even suggestion in the Torah about pilgrimages the gravesites of sexual perverts like this swine "Nachman" who has led so many gullible people astray.

Avodah Zorah.

A bed in houses close to the gravesite on Pushkina Street will cost some $600 for the holiday.

Even the local peasants would be foolish for letting then stay in their houses. I certainly wouldn't let these cultists into my house.

David

I wonder how many thousand litres of vodka will be consumed at this idolatrous event?

WHERE IS IT DOCUMENTED THAT HE WAS A SEXUAL PERVERT? I ONCE ASKED A BRESLEVAR CHOSID THIS QUESTION AND HE SAID ITS ALL LIES.

Sorry - them NOT then. Typo!

If this is what gives these people a good time, good for them.

Some people spend their vacation traveling the world, some people do the safari, a cruise, Disney, some people go to Mecca for the Hajj, etc. These people go to Uman.

All the same waste of money.

Could have been used to feed the poor.

Its Sad that none of you have anything nice to say. If you were at Rebbe Nachmans grave Erev Rosh Hashona and said Tikkun Killuli I assure you , all your hatred would be lost.

The vile anti Jewish anti religious postings on this site are appalling. The Breslovs are attacked for attending a spiritual event and not giving to the poor - the attackers are almost surely living in big houses (or would like to), go to "frivilous" concerts, movies, restaurants - so why don't YOU stfu and move into one bedroom flats and give the rest to the poor.

And to call them a cult? When the essence of being religious is to study the Torah and Talmud and argue and debate a 1000 different meanings for every sentence - hardly sounds like a monolithic mind control group to be.
And btw, I'm secular, but appreciate those of my brethren who are doing the heavy lifting for the rest of us.

I fully agree with what AE stated!

many of these mindless clowns leave their family behind during the most 'spiritual' time of the year. and they leave eretz yisroel and instead spend their money in a country known to despise jews, with a history of jewish blood on their hands.
i also wonder how many of them are getting some form of govt. welfare and yet have enough money to fly to a dead guys grave.


And to call them a cult?

yes. thats what they are.

not quite. its more like.... study what some ignorant people said hundreds of years ago in trying to explain what some other men wrote 3000 years ago when they decided to trick a group of mid-eastern folks into believing god wrote a book. then, when reality and science show that the book couldnt have been written by god, study what the apologists said in their dishonest attempts to have the torah still be relevant. ignore that the tannaim, amoraim, rishonim and achronim twist and contort the words until the meaning they assign bears no resemblance to the words written in the torah.
and following all your studying ignore common sense, logic and science, and just follow what your generations gedolim tell you. which part of that is inconsistent with monolithic thought control?

And btw, I'm secular, but appreciate those of my brethren who are doing the heavy lifting for the rest of us.

with moronic statements like this, i doubt youre anything but a religious fraud pretending to be secular to boost your credibility. the lifting theyre doing is not 'heavy' its an escape from reality. and it in no way benefits the rest of us. do you also appreciate the heavy lifting being done by hippie sects living in the woods ?

i wonder how many will die, be attacked, and robbed this year. i also hope this years crop of hookers is sufficient to meet the demands of the larger crowd.

ah-pee-chorus

a little tune for the gravesite....

na na na na, na na nachman, hey hey, goodbye.

Yosef ben Matitya

it's the besht fault (as well as that of his predecessors since the ari) and that of all his followers since.

Yankel

And already some breastlover (no pun intended) chassidim were arrested, drinking in public and other disorderly conduct

Sparky the Wonder Dog

The crude anti-religious slurs on this blog never change---yeah yeah yeah besht cult hookers booze blah blah blah.

That's right APC: he's dead.

Wow.

And he said he'd live forever, too.

Wait, he didn't.

It's a great big world out there.

Like your little corner of it, do you guys?

SkepticalYid
