Returning to the Holy Land

In this weeks Parsha - weekly Torah portion - VaYaitzai, our Father Yaakov leaves Israel, in the beginning, and at the very end returns. The Torah relates that as he returned to the Holy Land he was escorted by two camps of angels, and he called the place after them - "camps" - "machanayim" a word with a composition of 3 out of 4 letters of 'Nachman' and with the same gimatria (numerical value) as Nachman. Rabbainu did in fact leave the Holy Land returning to the Ukraine, in order to bring all of Israel to the Holy Land, may it be soon. Rabbainu said explicitly that his place is just Eretz Yisroel. This week we saw B"H some sort of step being taken to bring the holy tomb of Rabbi Nachman to Eretz Yisroel. We also saw the Israeli government launch a somewhat obnoxious campaign to get Jews out of America and back to the Holy Land - there is immodesty at this site: Our main strength is with the song of the Holy Land: Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!

After writing this I learned Likutay Halachos, Laws of Ma'ariv (night prayer) 4, at the end of this piece Rabbi Nussun mamash discusses why Rabbi Nachman left E.Y. in the first place, but it was only to come back.

Dude, why do you put a link to a website full of shmutz? I clicked on the link only to be assaulted by offensive images.
Please do be a bit more careful in the future.

Duly noted.
1.However please beware that adds on sites are bound to change..., so when you visit a commercial site you should take the necessary precautions.
2. Even the actual content of the campaign the zionists are (or were?) running isn't exactly good for the eyes....
Great blessings of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!

Rebbe Nachman's Kever Stays in Uman

I think Rav Bergman's post is in accord with the Rebbe's wishes.

Just checked the article, I couldn't figure out how or even if it was possible to leave a comment, but I was revolted. This isn't something I want to waste time on, so I will say succinctly it was full of sheker and imputence. Right at the beginning he starts: "However, I have yet to see in any article reporting on the proposed re-location a discussion", well maybe if he was willing to lower himself to he would have seen that this is a topic that was on the home page for years. He quotes from Chayay Moharan, so why doesn't he quote what it says there that Rabbainu said explicitly that he really wanted to travel again to the Holy Land to die there, but he was worried he wouldn't make it, so he settled with Uman. This is just the tip, and it surprises me that you who are familiar with didn't know enough to realize that his words are empty. May H'Y save us from the likes of this!
