30 thousand Hasidim journey to Ukraine to celebrate the Jewish New Year at the gravesite of their holy leader Rebbe Nachman. A Ukrainian far-right group erects a cross at the site of Hasidic prayers and builds a monument to Cossacks who slaughtered thousands of Jews and Poles in 1768 during a national rebellion.
