JNS.org – A hotel in Uman, Ukraine, has a policy that refuses to rent rooms out to Jews, revealed Eduard Dolinsky, director of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee.

Dolinksy said he decided to call the 17-room Uman City Plaza hotel after reading an online review written by a Jew who was turned away.

“I didn’t believe it, so I called myself,” Dolinsky wrote on his Facebook page. The hotel administrator replied, “Yes, indeed, rooms are not rented out to Jews,” and informed Dolinsky that “last time, repairs were necessary after the Jews stayed in the rooms.”

Uman is a popular destination for Jews during the Rosh Hashanah holiday because it is where Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, founder of the Breslov Hasidic Jewish sect, is buried. About 25,000 Jews from Israel, the US, and Europe visit Uman for Rosh Hashanah each year.

    I’m hardly one took defend Ukrainian antisemites, but this isn’t the first time we’ve read of atrocious, reprehensible behavior on the part of the Breslov bunch.
