uman? yerushalayim?

"All the world will rejoice and sing our melodies, there will be great joy in Jerusalem, in Uman and throughout the world..."

"The world will travel to uman? All the world will travel to Jerusalem! If not Jerusalem, then Uman, or Jerusalem, or Uman."

(Israel Saba page 344)

Leshana Tova!!

sounds like the original was "o yerushalayim o uman," i.e. "either jerusalem or uman." chazaq w'ematz, shanah tovah!

B"H my friend just checked out this statement, in the original recording. Saba is talking about how after the resurrection Rabbainu will be in Yerushalayim, and thus Saba concludes, that either we will go to Uman or to Yerushalayim.
It seems to me that all the propaganda to stop people going to Uman is built on things like this. The truth is that even during Saba's lifetime there were people that tried to put an end to Uman, and they even once tried preventing Saba from going (one of the main proponents - Gershon - was shot dead in the U.S.) but they were not successful.
There are grounds to go to Yerushalayim, but not based on the stuff they are trying to spread.
