The devastating war in Ukraine has taken the lives of many and driven millions from their homes. Refugees have lost everything and urgently need our help. Many of us have sent donations, but more must be done.
Our spiritual leaders, Rabbis Jonathan Berkun and Guido Cohen, are departing Sunday night to visit the Ukrainian border area to bring much needed supplies. Your help is needed to make a bigger impact.

“You shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the feelings of the stranger, having yourselves been strangers in the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 23:9)

More than 4 million people have fled Ukraine in response to Russia’s invasion. Millions more are displaced within the country, making this the fastest-growing refugee crisis in Europe.
