Help Support Ukrainian Refugees

We have all watched in shock as the people of Ukraine have been forced to flee or fight as a result of the ongoing Russian invasion attempt. As Jews, we are committed to supporting those displaced by such conflicts. Here are some ways you can contribute and support the Ukrainian people during this difficult time.

World Union for Progressive Judasim Ukraine Crisis Fund
The World Union helps support progressive Jewish communities in Ukraine, including Rabbi Alex Dukhovny (Kiev) and Rabbi Julia Grishenko (Odessa) in Ukraine as well as many smaller towns sustained by lay leaders. They are in desperate need to help those who have stayed and those who are now refugees.

The refugee settlement agency is closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and neighboring countries and is responding with emergency humanitarian assistance to those who are displaced. A HIAS response team is in Poland right now assessing ways it can assist Ukrainians — Jews and others — as they cross into Poland.
