The attention of the world is riveted on the developing situation in Ukraine. The outbreak of a war that affects the entire country and the region is especially worrisome to the Jewish communities of Ukraine. We are in contact with individuals and organizations who have been engaged in heroic efforts to assist and support the hundreds of thousands of individuals affected and the many reborn Torah communities in the region.
At this critical time, we must all engage in tefillah (sincere prayer) for world peace, שלום בעולם, and for the safety and vitality of Acheinu Bnai Yisrael, the individuals and communities involved. The Orthodox Union is establishing a Ukraine Crisis Fund that will support those heroic efforts on the ground. 100% of proceeds will go to the cause.
