Hotel in Ukraine Refuses to Rent Rooms to Jews; Says It Required Repairs After Jews Stayed There

A hotel in Uman, Ukraine is refusing to rent out rooms to Jews, the Times of Israel website reports today (April 15, 2016).

A leader of Ukraine's Jewish community reported the discriminatory rule yesterday.

Eduard Dolinsky -- director of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee -- wrote yesterday on Facebook that an administrator at Uman City Plaza told him the policy was in place because the last time that Jews were allowed to stay at the hotel, it required repairs.

Dolinsky said he called the hotel -- a small establishment with 17 rooms -- because he read an online review by a Jew who was turned away by the hotel.
