Rep. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week asking him to intercede on behalf of American Jews who want to go to Uman, Ukraine, for the upcoming Jewish New Year.
Tens of thousands of Jews from across the world travel annually to Uman to celebrate Rosh Hashanah at the grave of Rabbi excited forever coque iphone 11 Nachman of Breslov.
Duncan’s number 5 coque iphone 11 letter to Pompeo, which was co signed by 25 coque iphone 5 6 7 8 plus x xs xr 11 pro max houston texans x4966 congressional coque bleu huawei p smart 2019 coque iphone xr arabesque colleagues, highlighted the fact that Ukraine’s travel ban has some exemptions, “including allowing students, diplomats and cultural figures to arrive by invitation.”
“The Ukrainian government could add a limited religious exception allowing for a small fraction of regular attendees (not to exceed 2,000 coque samsung galaxy s5 s6 s7 s8 s9 s10 s10e edge plus all might and deku my hero academia people) to enter the country for strangers things coque iphone xr a total of five days,” coque huawei ascend g620s the letter said, adding “All members of the group would be tested upon arrival at their own expense and would agree to follow all medical safety and security precautions and protocols at all times. ”
In recent years, tens of thousands of religious Jews have coque rose pale huawei y6 2018 made the annual trek to Uman to visit the gravesite. Even the prospect of several thousand are causing concern coque itskins iphone xr among Ukrainian leadership.

However, even during times of iphone xs max coque juventus uncertainty, governments should continue to allow maximum flexibility for religious expression and practice.
“I have a deep respect for all people of faith, and I believe Ukraine had good intentions in crafting their travel restrictions. But I also believe they need to find creative ways to tekken 7 wallpaper 88wa4 accommodate people of faith in a safe and commonsense manner,” he continued. “Governments don’t have to choose between allowing religious expression and public safety, and believe this letter makes it clear that common sense steps can be taken to achieve both goals. I am hopeful raising this issue will clear the way for many in the Jewish community to travel to Uman for the Jewish New Year.”
