Attention of: The Minister of Tourism of the State of Israel,
Honorable Mr. Uzi Landau,
Now is the historical opportunity to bring Rabbi Nachman to Jerusalem, especially since the tomb has been legally taken over by the Ukranian Minister of Justice as a historical tourist resort belonging to Ukrainians.
They do not need the body of Rabbi Nachman, because they don't want the Hasidim to come to Rabbi Nachman. The security problems are enormous and everybody wants to avoid a disaster.
Jewish pilgrims would much rather travel to Jerusalem then to risk their lives in Uman. Mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat, has written a letter which expresses that he is very enthusiastic about the tourism potential for Jerusalem that Rabbi Nachman brings.
Rabbi Nachman has a reputation as world class philosopher and his teachings are studied by Universities and Churches. Bringing Rabbi Nachman to Jerusalem will create a World Peace Center around Mt. Zion and help keep Jerusalem united.
Rabbi Nachman will bring a gigantic economic boost once he is in the right place.
