Israel issued a new stamp to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the death of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov. The Rav’s Hasidic followers make a pilgrimage to his grave, in Uman, Ukraine, every year; the stamp itself is based on a painting by the current Breslov rabbi, who in turn based it on a 1922 photograph of mourners.
