The Yeshiva World Uman- Getting Ready For Rosh Hashanah « » Frum Jewish News

As preparations for receiving tens of thousands of mispallalim from around the world continue, it appears this year’s turnout in Uman for Rosh Hashanah will be a record-breaker, as many as 40,000-50,000 people. This is a direct result of the new arrangement which permits Israelis to fly without obtaining a visa in advance.The notion of davening at the kever of R’ Nachman of Breslov seems to be an increasingly popular one, attracting Yidden from around the globe, from all walks of life, not just Breslov Chassidim and not just the frum.Israel’s security services will make appropriate arrangements to ensure the safety of the visitors, as will the various emergency medical services. This year, there will be 15 containers of supplies being sent from Eretz Yisrael and China containing 100,000 yomtov meals. 800 workers are involved in the massive hachnasas orchim operation, which includes 200 volunteers from North America, 100 Breslov Chassidim from France and 500 local residents.25 tons of salads, 35 tons of pastries and cakes and 100,000 rolls are being shipped from the United States. The kitchen is under the hashgacha of Rabbi Meir Siruta and heading the kitchen staff is Chef Nathan Mordechai Lichtenstein. In total, there will be more than 250 tons of food, disposable plates & cutlery and kitchen supplies shipped in from America and China.Some visitors opt to make their own arrangements and do not rely on the main kitchen option.(YWN – Israel Desk, Jerusalem)
