A ceremony earlier in the day, in which thousands said Psalms (tehillim) went off without a hitch, despite a strong rainstorm that took place Sunday morning.
The Jewish “settlement” in Uman includes numerous services, such as medical services, where volunteers from numerous organizations, including Israel's Ichud Hatzalah, which broadcast Sunday morning's event worldwide.
