Celebrating Rosh Hashana -- And Boosting The Local Economy -- In Ukraine


Every Rosh Hashana, thousands of Jewish pilgrims come to the Ukrainian town of Uman to dance for joy. Why? Because a famous Jewish rabbi asked them to. Although Rabbi Nachman died almost 200 years ago, they still come to pay their respects, and lift the economy of Uman at the same time.
