Rabbi Of Kever Dovid: You Don’t Need To Go All The Way To Uman


Rabbi Yosef Berger, one of the rabbis of the Kever Dovid, in an interviuew with Arutz Sheva that it is possible to reach “wonderful levels” on Rosh Hashanah even without flying to R’ Nachman’s grave in Uman.

“Many (gedolim) say that the Tikkun Haklali – the ten perakim of Tehillim that R’ Nachman chose as especially effective for tikkunim – can be said at Kever Dovid on Rosh Hashana or earlier, and achieve the same tikkun as at R’ Nachman’s kever.

He says the place’s lofty levels has been known for years, and thousands have visited Kever Dovidb since the beginning of of Elul. “Every Jew who says those ten perakim of Tehillim here, even on erev Rosh Hashanah, is like he went to Uman.”

  1. Even better go a few hundred feet away from kaver dovid to the kosel and have your teffios go straight up to Hashem, from the very place our grandparents wished they could stand let alone daven, as their blood ran freely in the very streets people are visiting, helping the economy of the descendants of those who plundered a few years ago. But hey its more fun and exciting in uman so go go go.

  2. Like saying, you don’t need to fly all the way from NY to the Belzer Rebbe in Israel, might as well go the Satmar Rebbe in Williamsburg or Monroe.

    And why to the kever of King David, might as well go to the kever or Rachel or bet yet, to the Kotel.

  3. Maybe if he hosts a kumzitz, provides street barbers, and has Na Nachs dancing on top of cube vans he would attract more people!
