Minyanim in Uman

 Rosh Hashanah

On Rosh Hashanah, everyone wants to pray in the style that they are accustomed to. Around 30,000 people come to Uman for the days of Rosh Hashanah. There are plenty of minyanim so that everyone who travels to Uman can find the nusach (prayer style) that he is comfortable with.

The central Minyanim take place at the Klois Synagogue. On the top floor of the synagogue, the minyan is Nusach Sephard. On the lower floor, the minyan is Nusach Eidut HaMizrach.

There is also a minyan at the holy gravesite of Rebbe Nachman with a Yemenite (Temani) Nusach.

The minyan of the Heychal HaKodesh community is run by Rabbi Shik in the Migometer Building.

There is a central minyan for the Ohr Chaim community from the United States, under the auspices of Rabbi Lankry, which takes place in the big tent on 23a Foskina Street.

There are also many other styles of minyanim including Chabad, Vishnitz, Satmar, Yeshivish, Vatikin of Rabbi Lebermentsch, Kehillat Keren Ohr, and many more.
