On Rosh Hashanah, tens of thousands of Jews from Israel and elsewhere descend on the small Ukrainian city of Uman to celebrate the Jewish new year. Located some 130 miles south of the capital Kiev, Uman is the burial place of Nachman of Breslov, the founder of the Breslov Hasidic sect. A great-grandson of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Hasidic Judaism, Nachman was a charismatic Jewish mystic who believed Rosh Hashanah to be a spiritually auspicious time.

WIKIPEDIA: The Hasidic pilgrimage to Uman is a pilgrimage of Jews who profess one of the Hasidic currents of Judaism , namely the Bratslav Hasidim. All Jews who represent the Bratslav trend of Hasidism consider it their duty to visit at least once in their lives the grave of Tzadik Nachman. They also believe that if they celebrate the New Year ( Rosh Hashanah ) near his grave, then the next year will be very happy for them. They come to Uman as whole communities, together with their children. Some Hasidim come several times in a lifetime, some annually. Those Jews who do not have the means to travel to Ukraine turn to the special structures of Israel, which are engaged in charity work, for help. They pay for the community's travel, provide them with food and funds to rent housing in Uman. Since 2010, an agreement has been signed between Ukraine and Israel on mutual visa-free entry into the country. Thanks to this, a massive Hasidic pilgrimage to Ukraine was expected. However, for some reason, many Hasidim never made it to Uman. In 2018, there were already about one hundred thousand Hasidim in Uman. In 2010 was the jubilee of Tzaddik Nachman - 200 years from the date of death.
