Like every week, the staff of the Ichud Breslov in Uman check the Eruv to make sure it is kosher for the many visitors and residents who spend Shabbos by Rebbe Nachman’s Tzion in Uman, Ukraine. The staff took care of some emergency repairs on the Eruv before Parshas BeShalach in Uman. They also set up the Tzion for Shabbos davening.
Parshas BeShalach Shabbos Shirah in Uman was a big Shabbos with many guests from all over the world. There were two organized groups this week – one was a women’s group and one was a men’s group. Due to the many visitors, there was Davening in the main big “outside” room of the Tzion even though it was very cold. There was also the main regular Minyan inside the smaller indoors Tzion room both for Vasikin and a later time. The Aliyos for the Torah were sold by the Gabbai of the Tzion, Rav Mordechai Weissfish. Mussaf, Maariv and Havdalah were done by Rav Noson Tzemach who is also a Gabbai of the Tzion.
