So this is why Haredis aren't going to Ukraine

YnetNews talks about a drop in the reservations made by Haredis going to Uman, Ukraine, to visit the gravesite of the late rabbi Nachman, partly because of less subsidies (they should be getting jobs if they want to afford it anyway), and the key reasons are apparently because of a rabbi implicated in a sexual abuse scandal who fled to Morocco, which may provide sanctuary with no extradition:
Sources in the Hasidic movement explain that the drop in the number of reservations did not only stem from the costs but also from the possibility that Rabbi [Eliezer] Berland, who is suspected of committing sex offenses on women, would not travel to Uman for fear of being extradited to Israel. Therefore, many of the Hasidim are staying in Israel or flying to Morocco to be with him.

At the same time, the Hasidic movement's rabbis banned trips to Uman on a ship for fear of the participation of women in the journey. In addition, round trip tickets were raffled among those who read Psalms for yeshiva students banned from leaving the country without the army's permission.
Well now, if they'd just show a little more patriotism and do their army service, they could get the chance to trip to Ukraine. And if they'd just cut out the disrespect for women, the world would be a much better place.

Berland is quite a disgrace for committing rape and fleeing justice, but then so are any Haredis who go to Morocco to show solidarity with him. In a country where Jews had some very bad experiences with Islamofascism in past centuries. They shouldn't travel abroad just to support creeps like him.

Update: in related news, including the previous post, a most disgusting riot was committed by several who are/were going to travel to Ukraine because their plane flight was delayed:
Several hasidim heading to Ukraine to spend Rosh Hashanah at the burial site of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov were arrested at Ben Gurion Airport for rioting after their flight was delayed.

The flight was on the tarmac early Tuesday morning in Israel when airport operations were suspended for about an hour after two Palestinian men in a stolen struck ran a security barrier.

The passengers caused damage to the plane, including to its emergency oxygen systems, according to reports.
An awful crime could've been committed by jihadists and all they're worried about is their pseudo-problems? It's always angering when Haredi extremists try - with potential deliberateness - to draw attention away from the more serious crises, as the previously discussed case could've been. I hope they rot in jail, but it all depends on whether the country's prosecution will make a convincing case and press serious charges against the Haredi rioters.
