Preparations for a big Lag Baomer celebration in Uman

Due to the security situation in Eretz Yisroel, many Breslov chassidim are planning to go to Uman and celebrate Lag Baomer at Rebbe Nachman of Breslov’s Kever. Meron will be closed starting today until next week Monday and it will not be possible to visit the burial site of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai as is customary on Lag Baomer. Due to the increase of visitors to Uman for Lag Baomer, the Ichud Breslov there is making the proper preparations for everything to go smoothly. The main Hadlakah is usually held in the courtyard of the Tzion in Uman and they are planning to make it bigger because of the increase in visitors. There will also be dancing in the courtyard similar to the dancing in Meron. They are also preparing a large feast for everyone.
