"I Have Never Seen It This Bad" - Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein in Ukraine

While the war and social unrest in Ukraine has fallen out of the news as of late, the situation there is worse than ever.

Rabbi Eckstein, currently in Ukraine to assess the situation, says he has "never seen it this bad." Many elderly in the Ukrainian Jewish community have gone days with no food or water. For many, a cup of hot water is a meal. When they can afford to, they buy half a loaf of bread, which must then last two weeks.

As Rabbi Eckstein continues to assess the community's needs and deliver emergency aid, you can help these elderly and impoverished, as well, through The Fellowship's Operation Winter Warmth.

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
