Secretive Jewish Sect Causes Stir in North Macedonia Town

The arrival of a group of Ultra-Orthodox Jews in the northern town of Kumanovo this weekend, wearing traditional clothing that residents never saw before, has raised concerns among some local residents.

“These persons respect the laws of North Macedonia, have a completely legal right to stay here and are here only temporarily,” Kumanovo police told the media on Sunday.

“Our information is that this group is in permanent movement and is expected to leave our country in the next few days,” police added, not disclosing where the group might be heading.

“Police wish to inform residents that this group poses no danger, and appeals for tolerance and solidarity towards them,” they added.
