      Kharkov Rabbi: More Jews Seeking to Leave for Israel

      Speaking to Arutz Sheva, the Rabbi of the city of Kharkov in Ukraine, Rabbi Moshe Moskowitz, discussed the concerns of Jews in the city in the wake of the recent unrest in Kharkov, and the fact that ousted President Viktor Yanukovych took refuge there.

      Rabbi Moskwitz said that the community was “fine,” despite the unrest. The community is hopeful that the matter is now settled, and that Kharkov will not be the focus of further protests, given the decision of Yanukovych to pass through the city as he attempted to leave Ukraine.
