Why is Everyone Suddenly Anti-Uman?

| |

umanHey Hesh,

Just wondering if you’ve seen all of the anti-Uman stuff as of late, as if suddenly the entire frum community has woken up to something that’s been going on peacefully for many years already. Why all of the animosity? No one seems to have a problem with folks going to kever rochel, maaras hamachpeila, or meron, but suddenly when it comes to Uman they are all up in arms. Maybe you can shine some light on this for me?

On the way to Kiev…

You make some interesting points, to be honest, I would love to go to Uman, but I’m a bit homophobic after hearing about all the uh “happiness” that goes on there, I also don’t want to be tempted by the ridiculously low priced prostitutes that also make a pilgrimage to the area around Rosh Hashanah. I almost made it one year, I heard about someone who was donating flights, but in the end it didn’t work for some reason or another, so I’ve never actually gone to see it myself. I would definitely rank it up there in the top 10 Orthodox Jewish things you need to do before you die.
