a route thru the forest between belarus and ukraine, which was getting popular the week before r"h, was burned on erev rosh hashana, when 40 chasidim were stopped by the belarusians from entering ukraine (b"h no arrests were made). that leaves a bunch of guys who came that way scrambling to look for a different way to exit.
not sure this is what R' Nachman had in mind

If there was a textbook definition of Chossid Shoteh, this might be it.

I think we can draw a line somewhere before "illegally crossing a border through a forest to daven at a kever during a global pandemic".

That's most definitely not a universal sentiment.

Do you know anyone who went to Miami from NY during pandemic? Anyone who illegally didn't quarantine upon return? Anyone who went to illegal wedding? Anyone who went to place of gathering and illegally didn't wear mask? Anyone who sent kids to illegal camp?

Why are all these illegalities for ones personal indulgence ok, but going to Uman for Rosh Hashanah, which is extremely religiously important for some, is not?

It reminds me of the people waiting in line by pizza store, which was completely fine (after all, people gotta live) as long as nobody made a Barchu.

Sneaking across an international border is worse. come on, that's not a serious comparison.

Also, for the record, I was and am agaisnt people not quarantining in Miami or vice versa.

I'm fine with waiting on line socially distanced and masked, and also having a minyan under those circumstances!

"illegally crossing a border"
gasp!

"to daven at a kever"
is that something bad in youre eyes? like as bad as going to buy ice cream?

"during a global pandemic"
what does that have to do with anything?
u think there were large crowds in the forest?
