Full Update from JTA:

A Jewish man from Kiev sustained serious injuries in a knife attack by three men, the second assault on a Jew in the city in one week.

The victim of the stabbing on Saturday night was identified by Ukrainian media as Dov Ber Glickman, a 28-year-old student of a local kolel, a school of Talmudic studies for married men.

He was attacked by three men after exiting the Podolski synagogue.

After the stabbing, Glickman returned to the synagogue and was rushed from there to the hospital, where he is currently recovering, according to Rabbi Moshe Asman, a chief rabbi of Ukraine. Asman told the Israeli daily Maariv that the Glickman suffered a massive loss of blood.

Police are searching for the attackers, who ran away after the stabbing.

Last week, four unidentified men were involved in an assault on an Israel-born Hebrew teacher from Kiev, whom they followed from his synagogue to his home. Three of them attacked the teacher in the vestibule until neighbors responded to his cries. One of the men is in custody.

Mark Levin, executive director of NCSJ: Advocates on Behalf of Jews in Russia, Ukraine, the Baltic States & Eurasia, strongly condemned the violent attacks in Kiev targeting Jewish individuals.

“It’s disturbing that the incidents have happened on back-to-back Friday nights,” Levin told JTA Sunday. There is “growing concern” throughout the Jewish community in Kiev, he said, adding: ”The atmosphere has certainly been changing over the last couple of months.”

Levin said the government and police must convinced to provide greater security around the synagogues and other Jewish sites in the city. He said he has spoken to the U.S. ambassador in Kiev, who is in touch with the Ukrainian government on the issue.

Levin said that following the most recent attack the Yeshiva students organized their own security patrol.

 


On Friday night, 3 youths attacked a yeshiva student, Dov Ber Glickman in the neighborhood of Padul in Kiev, Ukraine. The student was on his way home after a meal at the local synagogue.

The three jumped the student, beat him, stabbed him three times in the legs and then ran.

The student managed to get back to the synagogue where he passed out. The synagogue guard called an ambulance.

The Jewish community is demanding to know who is behind the attack.

    Ukraine must be seen to stand up and to pursue those responsible with the full weight of the law.
    Its high time that all responsible European countries stand up against racism in all its forms, to do nothing is to condone this barbarity dragging Europe back to the dark days of Fascist anti – Semitism and this must be stopped and those responsible taken out of society and educated before being allowed back into the civilised community they seem hell bent to destroy Shabbat Shalom!
