Chief Rabbi of the Ukraine: "We have no Fear"


Chief Rabbi of the Ukraine, Yaakov Dov Bleich told Hasidic paper Hamevaser that the Jews of the Ukraine are currently unaffected by the recent demonstrations and rioting, "Naturally we believe relations with the EU would be good for our community, but we know the final decision rests with President Yankovich. In case the rioting escalates into a coup we know this could lead to much anti-Semitic sentiment across the Ukraine, and we pray to G-d that the Jewish community here and across the diaspora remain safe and sound."
