Gallery: Jewish pilgrimage to Uman


In one of the largest annual Jewish pilgrimages to any site outside of Israel, tens of thousands of Hasidic Jews flocked to the city of Uman – 200 km outside of Kiev – this week to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the start of a new year in the Jewish calendar.
Uman is home to the grave of Rabbi Nachman, the founder and spiritual leader of the Hasidic Breslov movement. He died in 1810.
