My spiritual relationship with HKB"H is not dependent on visits to a tzaddik's grave.


That may be so for you, but surely different things inspire different people. Perhaps music of some kind inspires you, maybe it's an intense nature setting that rekindles your spark.

No problem. If going to Uman charges your spiritual batteries, fine.

but what if--what if--someone else thinks that they get their spiritual batteries charged by the kabbala center? Ah, says Village--that is sheker. But surely someone's feeling of spiritual uplift is subjective, right?

And I just gotta wonder--all those guys who go to Uman to get their spiritual batteries charged ( description I heard from one of the folks who go each and every year on R"H)--

What about the women? Don't any of them need to get their spiritual batteries charged?

I LOVE going by myself. I feel REALLY bad when I'm with others because I see a million things that I want to crawl under, over or around to photograph. And, well, that simply doesn't cut it with many others...
If not for my attempts to be a "good Christian" (i.e. someone who follows what Jesus taught and not what the Pauline Epistles taught), I doubt I'd be an orthodox Jew right now. Shemmy

I could see how that would get annoying.
