Thank G-d, Elul is off to a beautiful start, with thousands filling the Kotel plaza daily from all walks of life and places, trying to connect, forgive, be forgiven and merit goodness.
It is a time to re-focus, re-sensitize, and let go of that which is holding us back from true connection with Hashem. I met a friend of mine the other day and was so happy to see such a beautiful change in her – many years of stress seemed to have fallen off her face. She said, “I just came back from Uman.” It made me want to go myself :-).
But as I don’t have that luxury this Rosh Hashanah – I decided to send a Torah scholar to pray for me instead. You can too! We are sending a few of our Jerusalem learners to Rebbe Nachman’s tomb in Uman, Ukraine to say the special Tikun HaKlali prayer (10 specific psalms said in a certain order) specifically for each prayer request on Erev Rosh Hashanah.
Rebbe Nachman was known to have said that he will help whoever comes to his tomb and says the tikun to get out of gehenom. The Rebbe also said that on Erev Rosh Hashanah he has the ability to do extra tikkunim unavailable during the rest of the year. What once was a strictly Breslev tradition has spread to much of the Jewish world because of the great inspiration experienced there.
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to affect your upcoming year!
Pray for me in Uman!
(Under “Prayer Option” at the bottom of the page, choose “($36) Uman – Erev Rosh Hashanah Tikun Haklali”)
You should be signed and sealed for a Sweet New Year!
