"I cordially congratulate you on Rosh Hashana - the Jewish New Year - a holiday for renewal of our souls. Jewish community honors the aspirations of Ukraine, which consistently defends European values, and remains an active participant in social processes, making significant efforts to maintain peace and prosperity of the country," said President Poroshenko. 

Each year, there is a major pilgrimage by tens of thousands of Hasidim and others from around the world to the burial site of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, located on the former site of the Jewish cemetery in a rebuilt synagogue, for Rosh Hashana.
