      20 Arrested Trying to Leave Israel on Forged Documents

      Twenty Israelis were arrested between Thursday and Friday morning at Ben-Gurion International Airport, trying to leave the country with counterfeit travel documents.

      All of the suspects were headed to Uman in the Ukraine, which is a popular destination around Rosh Hashannah, the Jewish New Year which begins Sunday evening. Thousands of members of the Breslav hassidic movement go there to pray at the grave of Rabbi Nachman of Breslav.
