Ukraine War: A Year in Crisis, No End in Sight


When war erupted in Ukraine two years ago, The Fellowship was there to help. Having been on the ground in the former Soviet Union for over 30 years, we were uniquely prepared to act—delivering basic needs, providing rescue for the hundreds of thousands of fleeing refugees, and facilitating aliyah to the Holy Land.

As the war continues, threatening the hundreds of thousands of Jewish people remaining in Ukraine, we continue to provide food and medication, we continue to provide heat and electricity as power grids are attacked and the winter chill grips the region, and  we continue to provide aliyah for refugees seeking safety in Israel. Learn more how you help The Fellowship ensure that Ukraine’s Jews have everything they need during this time of peril.
