The victim of an alleged anti-Semitic attack that took place in Ukraine last week was flown to Israel on Tuesday to receive treatment for his wounds.

Aharon Alexander Gorshonov, a 25-year-old yeshiva student, was identified by community members at a hospital in Kiev last Monday where was being treated for serious head wounds some 48 hours after he had disappeared.

"He was last seen leaving the synagogue with a white kipa on his head on the second night of Seder (Passover)," said Yaakov Zilberman, a member of the Jewish community and representative of Zaka, an emergency response group.
