Jewish Student Stabbed in Kiev, Ukraine While Returning From Synagogue
Jerusalem Post – A yeshiva student was stabbed in Kiev on Friday evening, marking the second physical attack against a Jewish target in the Ukrainian capital in under a week. The victim was jumped by three youths on his way home from services at a local synagogue in the neighborhood of Podil, according to Hatzalah Ukraine, a local Jewish organization.
The men beat their victim -identified as Dov Ber Glickman, 28, by local Chabad emissary Rabbi Moshe Reuven Azman- before stabbing him three times in the feet and fleeing. Glickman subsequently made his way back to the synagogue where he collapsed. He was taken to the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery on his foot.
