In Dnepropetrovsk Minin street renamed after Menachem Mendel Schneerson (Chief Rabbi of the city: “The Hebrew name of the street gave the Ukrainian nationalists!”)

Minin street in the central region of Dnipropetrovsk renamed after Menachem Mendel Schneerson - in honor of the Seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, the greatest Jewish leader of the XX century.

The decision to rename more than 300 “Communist of names” of the city was made the other day in accordance with the presidential decree signed it in May 2015.

So, street Valyavki (Vasily Valyavka - a prominent Bolshevik) became a street Danylo Apostol Street. General Pear was named Hetman Petro Doroshenko.

Street Minin not subject to the anti-communist law, but it also decided to rename.

What is most interesting, the name of Menachem Mendel Schneerson gave the street is not on the initiative of the Jewish community!

Says Chief Rabbi of Dnepropetrovsk Shmuel Kaminetsky:

- The idea was lobbied Ukrainian nationalists! Yes, Ukrainian nationalism today - is not what it was before. Today, it is not associated with anti-Semitism. On the contrary, we wanted to show that Jews and Ukrainians together, that our history is valued and respected.

You are currently only imagine. The street where the Jewish school named Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, was named Menachem Mendel Schneerson! A four-minute walk away is the former headquarters of the KGB, where once held in custody, torture tortured Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson. These people thought that destroy the Jews. Now they get a decent answer!

Soon will be hung signs with the new name of the street - for the Jewish community of the city it will be a great celebration!

Street Menachem Mendel Schneerson becomes not only “Jewish” toponym on the map of Dnipropetrovsk. Tkachenko Street will be renamed the street. Vadim Siddur - after the famous native of Dnepropetrovsk, a talented Soviet sculptor, author of the monument to Jewish victims of Nazism “Formula of Grief” in Pushkin.
