Ukrainians Demonstrate Against Breslovers


Dozens of Ukrainians demonstrated, Sunday, against the arrival of hundreds of Breslover hasidim who went to the city of Uman to pray at the grave of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov in observance of his birthday on Shabbat, which was the first day of the Jewish month of Nissan.

Local police only allowed the demonstrators to protest near the Sha'arei Tzion Hotel and prevented them from getting near the tomb for fear of them harming the Jews.
