Update From Uman

(Picture by Dimitriy Larin)

Received via e-mail from Rabbi Nasan Maimon:

It's been around a month since you wrote expressing your concern, sympathy and willingness to help resolve this latest flagrant miscarriage of justice being perpetrated against us in the Ukraine and we wanted to let you know what's been happening.

Since then we have been fortunate to have established a good relationship with a very influential Ukrainian businessman. This person was able to arrange a personal audience between us and the President of the Ukraine as his first stop during his recent visit to Israel. We were able to secure their word that they would do whatever is in their power (within the framework of the Ukrainian judicial system) to see that Rebbe Nachman's gravesite remains completely under our control. As of now the appeal that we submitted to reverse the court's latest decision has frozen all legal actions against us. But the case is still pending.

As of now besides our need for your continued good wishes and prayers, there is an urgent need for funds. The high legal costs are draining our already strained finances and many of our other vital services are suffering.

If you can offer any concrete assistance or know someone who can, please be in touch with me at: 972-(0)54-4862935 or via e-mail at

Why doesn't he mention the name of that businessman? Is it Vadim Rabinovitch?
