Urgent: Emergency funds for South Ukraine and Odessa Jewery
A Call From Local Chabad Rabbis
Dear Community Member,
The war in Ukraine has begun and the situation of the Jewish community there is very worrying.
As brothers who guarantee each other we must not stand aside indifferent! We must help them! They need emergency equipment, medicine, food, fuel, rescue buses, sleeping bags, stoves and blankets, and many other critical needs that cannot be expanded on right now.
Many of the Jews who are there are Holocaust survivor orphans and adults who do not have the option of leaving and have nowhere to run. Please help them! לא תעמוד על דם רעך (Do not stand on the blood of a neighbor) !! פיקוח נפש (Saving lives!!!)
We must help them with food and equipment that costs a fortune as quickly as possible:
Personal emergency kits
Police escort convoys
Food and water
A satellite communication systems including phones and Internet in case Incase of network shutdown
Together with financial assistance, we urge you to dedicate good deeds (Mitzvot) and prayers for the safety and well-being of all the people who are affected by this conflict. Please consider joining the Chabad Centers for Friday night and Shabbat services, so we can collectively put our efforts together for a peaceful outcome.
