King Menachem: Get Clarity

Uman Before Perestroika, 1989

Uman wasn't at all like it is today, since Perestroika (the breakup of the USSR) in 1991. In 1989, still in the hands of the Communists, Uman was high-risk. Rav Shalom Arush got there on a fake Swedish passport! This was before the synagogue was built around Rabbenu's gravesite, and people davened in the courtyard of the house that then stood on the gravesite. Enjoy this phenomenal clip, with original Breslever niggunim in the background. We look forward to seeing you soon in Uman.

An amazing clip.

Where did all of these people come from?

The USSR? Israel?
