    Rabbi Yaakov Dov Bleich seeks to obtain Ukrainian citizenship

    After 32 years of living in Ukraine, the U.S.-born President of the Union of Jewish Religious Organizations of Ukraine, Rabbi Yaakov Dov Bleich, seeks to obtain Ukrainian citizenship and officially become a Ukrainian passport holder.

    A video interview with Rabbi Bleich was posted on the Obozrevatel website.

    Yaakov Dov Bleich, chairman of the Union of Jewish Religious Organizations of Ukraine, is proud to live in Ukraine.

    “Ukraine has finally become Ukraine. Ukrainians as a nation have become proud of the fact that they live here… Jews are also proud. Someone once told me an interesting thing: that there are no Ukrainian Jews, that all Jews came either from Poland or Russia. And I said: no, there are Ukrainian Jews. Thanks to Putin, there are Ukrainian Jews. That is why today, all Jews in Ukraine are proud to live here,” he said.
