Message for U.S. Citizens Considering Travel to Uman for Rosh Hashanah
Security Alert: U.S. Embassy Kyiv, Ukraine (August 22, 2023)
Location: Uman, Ukraine
Event: The U.S. Department of State recommends that U.S. citizens do not travel to Ukraine. This recommendation applies to U.S. citizens considering travel to Uman during Rosh Hashanah for the pilgrimage to the grave of Rebbe Nachman.
Since the start of the war in Ukraine, all parts of the country have experienced Russian airstrikes hitting civilian buildings and critical infrastructure, including houses of worship, often with little or no warning. Uman has been the site of multiple Russian missile attacks as recently as June. The U.S. Embassy in Kyiv continues to operate with reduced staffing and has limited capacity to assist U.S. citizens in Ukraine.
