No More New Year Pilgrimage on Ukraine to Israeli Jews This Year

Israeli Hasidic Jews might need to forego a yearly pilgrimage to the fundamental Nordic city of Uman this season due to the coronavirus outbreak, the city’s mayor has stated.

This season, Jewish New Year parties run out of Sept 18-20.

He also cited the incidence of this coronavirus in both Ukraine and Israel, along with the difficulty of tracking compliance with all the mandatory security measures.
