A 28-yeal-old Israeli and father of three has been missing in the Ukraine since Tuesday, the second day of Rosh Hashana, after heading into the forest alone for a mediation session, according to reports by his family.
Amir Ohana entered the forest with a friend whereupon the pair split up for individual meditation sessions. When his friend was unable to locate him, he reported Ohana as a missing person to both local and Israeli police. The police began combing the forest and searching the river.
Ohana's wife took to Facebook to ask for help in the search. "My husband loved traveling to Uman for Rosh Hashana meditation," she wrote. "He disappeared into the forest and they have been searching for him for over 30 hours."
"Amir my love, my heart goes out to you in prayer. Come back to me. To all who see this message, pray for my husband," she added.
