Report: Israel asks to transfer Rebbe Nachman's remains

Army Radio reported this morning that diplomats, by instruction of Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, made an official request to the government of Ukraine to allow the transfer of the remains of Rebbe Nachman to Israel.

"It does not make sense that half of the Jewish people leave the Land of Israel on Rosh Hashanah," said Rabbi Aryeh Lippo, a member of the Breslov Hasidic sect who was involved in the move.
