We continue to follow the deteriorating situation from Ukraine with a special concern for the welfare and safety of the Jewish communities we support in Kyiv, Chernivtsi, Kharkiv and Odessa. We ask for your support to enable us to help them during this emergency.
The words of Shevuot 39a have never felt more relevant:
כל ישראל ערבין זה לזה
Kol yisrael arevin zeh bazeh
All of Israel are responsible for each other
We hope you will find this source sheet helpful in your communities as you discuss world events and the ways you might support Ukraine and its Jewish communities.
We are unified in our determination to meet the immediate needs of hundreds of Ukrainian Jewish families. All donations will be used to rent apartments; pay for hotels; buy food; and pay for transportation from one city to another.
We would also be most grateful if you could send the links below to your congregants so that they can support our ongoing efforts to help the Jews in our four Kehillot in Ukraine during this very difficult time of war.
To donate in ILS or USD via The Schechter Institutes or via Masorti Olami.
