Support Jews in Ukraine
Today, we must support the Jews in Ukraine. We know thousands of Ukrainian people have come under fire in areas across the country. Thousands more have fled the country. Thousands more are being internally displaced. More than 200,000 Jews live in Ukraine, with 40,000 in critical need before this crisis even began. Your gift today directly helps the most vulnerable in Ukraine at this very moment.
