Last week we sent out an email out announcing that for the first time BRI would be hosting a meal tent in Uman. There are now only only 60 spots left. We ask you to register ASAP as we must confirm our numbers. The subsidized cost is $90 for adults and $45 for children; this includes all of the Shabbat and Yom Tov meals. The tent will be following the schedule of the Kloyz. We are pleased to be hosted by Reb Chaim Kramer, as well as many other great teachers. Remember to be prepared to explain how a nice Jewish boy like you, ended up in a place like this! Click here to join us.

The Gemara states, “The (impure) smoke from the idol of Michah mixed with the ascending smoke of the Holy Altar in Shiloh. When the angels prosecuted before HaShem about Michah, HaShem told them, “Leave him! His food is available for every passerby!” (Sanhedrin 103b). On Rosh HaShannah, all of creation comes before God to be judged (Rosh HaShannah 16a). The greatness of the mitzvah of Hachnasat Orchim (providing for guests) invokes forgiveness for sins on Rosh HaShanah! We are therefore extending a very special opportunity to our friends to sponsor a Shabbat or Yom Tov meal, in close proximity to the burial site of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov in Uman. This is certainly a very special mitzvah. There are also opportunities to sponsor the refreshments for our learners in the Breslov Kollel, as well as the Kiddushim on Shabbat and Yom Tov. For more information or to sponsor, click here now.

May we all be included in the book of the righteous Tzadikim, for a healthy and sweet Shanah Tovah!
