Hosting Purim Parties in War-Torn Ukraine

Despite the ongoing crisis in eastern Ukraine, Jews there are celebrating Purim today with a series of events across the country, including in cities in and near the conflict zone.For Jews who are displaced or those remaining in separatist-controlled areas, Purim will be marked by synagogue services, concerts, and other special holiday gatherings at Jewish community and social welfare centers.Additionally, local volunteers for our partner The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) will deliver mischlochay manot (Purim gift baskets) to homebound elderly and displaced Jewish families.Since the crisis began, Fellowship-funded JDC has deployed emergency services to assist thousands of Jews caught up in the conflict, including extra food, medicine, and medical care; crisis-related home repairs; extra winter items such as warm bedding, clothing, utility stipends, and space heaters; and a full aid package and emergency housing for displaced Jews.The JDC’s Davida Kutscher said, “We are certain that this day of joy and celebration will provide a much-needed respite from the fear and stress of the past several months.” Thanks for helping to make this respite possible, Fellowship friends!
