Oh HaShem - Just Talk to Him

Updated: Aug 12, 2020

In 2009 my older brother Lazer and his close friend Motty Safrin called me from Israel for the 3rd year in a row to attempt once more to convince me to come to Uman for Rosh Hashana with them and Nekuda Tova. Motty said “I don't know about you but I’m scared to go into Rosh HaShana without a good lawyer and Rebbe Nachman promises he’ll take my case to the Heavenly court”. When I heard Motty, the tzadik of a guy, talk like that, I was convinced right away that I absolutely needed to go to Uman.

That year I went to Uman and began my journey into the world of Breslev. I spent a lot of time with my brother Lazer and his Chevra at Nekuda Tova in Meah Shearim, Jerusalem. There I learned how to love yiddishkeit. Celebrating every Siyum, Rosh Chodesh and even Shabbos with so much joy was something very foreign to me and in those years it became my reality.
