Jews Ordered to Register in Donetsk, Ukraine


Events are happening rapidly in the Ukraine. I hope you’re keeping up with the situation and praying! A minority of pro-Russian groups in the Eastern half of the country have seized government buildings. The Ukranian government has responded with an “anti-terrorist” crackdown.

One Disturbing Incident in Donetsk, Ukraine

Recently, leaflets were distributed near the Donetsk, Ukraine, synagogue on Passover and elsewhere to the city’s 17,000 Jews. Jews over sixteen years of age were ordered to register and each registrant must pay $50, listing all their possessions. (Read more from or USA Today.)

“”Evasion of registration will result in citizenship revoke [sic] and you will be forced outside the country with a confiscation of property.”” demands the flyer, signed by the Donetsk People’s Republic.

Because of my previous post,  The Lunar Eclipse Tetrad and Israel, I wondered if the blood moon, and the beginning of the Lunar Tetrad, might possibly have any significance for Israel. So, I was on the lookout for any relevant news from this week’s Passover.  This kind of news is not what we want to find, however!  (The first blood moon occurred on Passover this year and the next three also occur on Jewish holidays, six months apart.)

UPDATE (04/19/2014):  The leaflet was supposedly distributed by the Donetsk People’s Republic, but they deny the connection. The Donetsk People’s Republic  is a pro-Russian separatist group which seized a Ukranian government building in Donetsk for their new headquarters.  See for more information about this group.
