We are all compelled to ask ourselves, what is my power and what is its purpose? We have the power to speak out, to learn about Ukraine and its Jewish community and history (see resource below), to advocate with public officials, and to give tzedakah.

We stand with Ukraine against Vladimir Putin’s authoritarian government’s invasion, support the Ukrainian people’s resistance, and support the many Russians risking their lives in public protest.  

To learn about the Jewish community and history in Ukraine: 
Times of Israel
