As we watch the terrifying events in Ukraine, our hearts go out to the innocent civilians whose lives have been threatened and upended, including 200,000 Ukrainian Jews. We don’t have to be on the ground in Kyiv to feel deep concern and sympathy for those affected.

All of us are asking - How can we help?

We are partnering with Congregation Etz Chaim, whose congregants are actively taking in refugees fleeing from Ukraine to Hanover, Germany. Temple Israel has a special relationship with this congregation through its vice president, Yevgen Bruckmann, who lived with Rabbi Hornsten as an exchange student. Yevgen found a home at Temple Israel and has been a son of our congregation ever since.  His Liberal Jewish Congregation is actively absorbing refugees, working with emergency shelters, donating clothes and food, and providing mental health/emotional support services. THEY NEED OUR HELP. Please donate to the Help From Afar fund at Temple Israel so we can support the essential and live-saving work Yevgen and his congregation are providing.
