30,000 Hasids to visit Ukraine to celebrate Rosh Hashanah
Annually, thousands of Jews come to Uman, central Ukraine, on the grave of their spiritual leader
One of the largest Jewish holidays, Rosh Hashanah, falls on October 3. This year, about 30,000 Hassids will visit the town of Uman, central Ukraine, to pay tribute to their spiritual leader Rabbi Nachman, who was buried there.
The believers will come from more than 20 countries across the globe. The press service of Ukraine’s State Service for Food Security and Customers Protection reported this on September 1. Some of the believers will arrive from countries where outbreaks of infectious diseases are registered; thus, the authority works to provide epidemiologic safety in the area of the upcoming event. The analysis of the current epidemiologic situation is underway.
Last year, 29,490 people came to Uman, which is the record number of visitors during Rosh Hashanah in Ukraine.
