The Interior Ministry reported on Sept. 16 that over 35,000 Orthodox Jewish pilgrims have traveled to the city of Uman for Rosh Hashanah despite the danger posed by Russia's ongoing war against Ukraine.

Known as the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah is one of the most important and widely-observed Jewish holidays. In 2023, Rosh Hashanah started on Sept. 15 and will end on Sept. 17.

Uman is located in Cherkasy Oblast in central Ukraine. The city serves as the burial place of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, the founder of the Breslov Hasidic movement, making it an important pilgrimage site for his followers during the holiday.

According to the Interior Ministry, the National Police, the National Guard, the State Emergency Service, the Medical Service, and other agencies are operating "around the clock" to enhance safety measures in Uman during the holiday.

Israeli police are also on site to assist in safety measures, the Interior Ministry added.
