A flight to Uman from Israel was canceled today, the eve of Rosh Hashana, due to technical difficulties encountered before takeoff.
Everyone on the flight was sent home to spend Rosh Hashana in Israel.
Many Breslov Hassidim prefer to spend Rosh Hashana at the graveside of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov in Uman, rather than with their families.
This year, one planeload will be spending the High Holidays with their families it the Holy Land.
We’re sure Rebbe Nachman would approve.
