About the event
As Ukraine fights for survival in the fourth week of Russia's invasion, the number of deaths continues to climb. Cities continue to be destroyed. Families continue to be ripped apart. Millions of Ukrainians, including tens of thousands of Jews, continue their attempts to flee to safety.
At this very moment, our Federation communities across North America are urgently needed to exercise the power of peoplehood – the power and the need for Khillah (community) – one of our most fundamental precepts – as a Jewish community all of us are responsible for one another.
The devastation we are seeing in Ukraine is the largest humanitarian crisis since World War II, and we have no idea how much more Ukrainians will have to suffer before the fighting ends.
Almost 4,000 Ukrainian Jews have made Aliyah to Israel. Women, children, and the elderly are arriving in Israel and in other countries with only the belongings they were able to carry with them.
The Federation values Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), K-lal Yisrael (shared Jewish community), and Tzedakah (philanthropy) at home, in Israel, and around the world. This is the time to live our values.
We’re always there, day after day, year after year, standing together as a Jewish family and supporting each other. Today more than ever our family needs our support. Come Together for Ukraine on Sunday, March 27th, at 6:00 PM at Beth Shalom Synagogue where we will stand as a united community in solidarity with our Jewish family in Ukraine. Please register here, and share with your Jewish and non-Jewish friends.
These are our brothers and sisters. They are counting on us. Will you be there?
