    The city of Dnepropetrovsk in eastern Ukraine named a street in honor of the Rebbe, who fled the city in 1927.

    Communist agents arrested the rebbe’s father there in 1939.

    Menachem Mendel Schneerson Street was unveiled in Dnepropetrovsk on Friday morning by its chief rabbi, Shmuel Kaminezki, who is one of the Chabad movement’s most senior envoys to Ukraine. The change came amid a larger national policy to replace the names of Soviet-era figures with Ukrainian national heroes.

    “This is a very important event for the city and for the country in general,” Kaminezki said at the renaming ceremony for the street, along which a Jewish school is located.

    “I want to note that it is not the Jewish community that initiated this name change: The proposal to name a street after the Rebbe was received from the Ukrainians, who know the history of their city and its country and are proud of it,” he said in a statement published on the community’s website.
