For nearly 50 years, the Communists barred access to the city of Uman, burial site of Rebbe Nachman. The situation looked hopeless – until a young American chassid set out to pray at the Rebbe’s grave, no matter what obstacles stood in his way. This true, action-packed adventure brings the reader face-to-face with the surveillance, scare tactics and undercover activities of Communist Russia in the 1960s – and the courage of Breslover chassidim trapped behind the Iron Curtain. Includes a wealth of stories about modern-day heroes of the Breslover movement.
