Lviv, Ukraine - Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach the Grand Rebbe of Belz with more than 1,000 of his Chasidim came this week Tuesday for pilgrimage to the tombs of Tazdikim in Belz town, whom they honor as miracle workers.

The pilgrimage is held every two years.

Belz is a small city in the Lviv region of Western Ukraine, near the border with Poland. It became a center of Hasidism in Galicia.

Belzer Hasidism originated in 1817, when Rabbi Shalom Rokeach was inducted as rabbi of Belz and the town became home to a Hasidic dynasty of Rokeach.

Great event. Does anybody know if there is a permanent community of the Belz hasidim that live there full time?
In Uman, there is a community of 1000-1500 of Rabbi Nahman followers. Most of them came from Israel.They established different business and brought their families to Uman

There is only one jewish community in Uman, near Rabbi Nahman.
All over Ukraine, where great Tzadikim are burried, there are only a few haredim in each place. They barely get a minian

VIN Does NOT blott out or remove photos of the females. I suggest you go to another site that does so.

The pictures looked like something you would see pre war. Let's hope for the day when these mayssim will be rolling their way under to Eretz Yisrael and there will be no need to visit these G-d forsaken countries any longer.

You want to see pictures only Taliban women( religious sect from Beit Shemesh and where women wear only long black dresses like muslims.
On pictures you see local women who live there full time, ukrainians.

2 # 8 I didnt say that they should blott out or cut off ladies bchlal, the vort is only wen there is pretzis, 4 ex the Big Satmar Chasuna that took place in Beit Shemesh vin took pic of the ladies side, but thats not an issue bec look @ how that young lady in the belzer article looks & how the Satmar Dayan in Yerushalayim looks, big difference my friend. This is a chareidisheh website.

Maybe the photos of the horses should have been censored. After all, it's a Beheimah Tameh.

Are you sure that Uman is the only place with Yidden? What about Kiev & Odessa?
