JEWISH FEDERATIONS ANNOUNCE UKRAINE ASSISTANCE FUND
The Jewish Federations of North American (JFNA) has announced the Ukraine Assistance Fund as an initial response to the situation in Ukraine.
“As the situation escalates, needs in the Ukrainian Jewish community become even more acute,” said Michael Siegal, Chair of the JFNA Board of Trustees. “It’s critical that we maintain our commitment to provide assistance to the most vulnerable in our community and ensure our Jewish institutions are secure."
The Executive Committee of The Jewish Federations of North America yesterday authorized the distribution of funds raised through our collective Federations to overseas agencies.
The Ukrainian Jewish population, estimated at around 300,000, is one of the largest in the world. The area is already home to some of the world’s poorest Jews, and the currency devaluation and increasing economic uncertainty are affecting the entire community.
JFNA is committed to working with its partners at home and abroad throughout this crisis.
