THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS EVENT A SUCCESS!
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.
The war in Ukraine has created the most severe humanitarian crisis of this century. With the arrival of winter and increased attacks on infrastructure, the crisis has increased significantly. The Jewish community in Ukraine is suffering tremendously and is feeling alone and forgotten. You can help! The Detroit - Ukraine Jewish Community Unity Event is a great way to help and show your support.
Event Highlights Include:
Bring new hats, gloves, and jackets to the event's "Winter Clothing Drive" which will be distributed to Jews in Ukraine;
Learn about aid provided by the Detroit Jewish Community;
Hear the amazing story of how the Jewish orphanage in Odesa (nearly 200 people) escaped to Berlin where it is has been temporarily operating since the war began;
Participate in a special Message of Unity that will be recorded and shared with Jews in Ukraine. (Homemade signs of support are encouraged);
Featured Speakers Include:
Ody Norkin, Vice President at Michigan Flyer LLC – On his recent trips to Ukraine donating ambulances and more
Ethan Gross, JD, CEO at Globe Midwest Adjusters International – On his recent trip to Ukraine and Germany visiting the Odesa orphanage and other JRNU Jewish relief sites in Ukraine
Judi Garrett, COO at Jewish Relief Network Ukraine – On support provided for 50,000 Ukrainian Jews by JRNU
Special Guest Speaker
Rabbi Mendel Moskowitz, Ambassador to JRNU and Emissary in Kharkov – On his harrowing escape from Kharkiv and updates about the current situation for the Jews in Ukraine
The event will be followed by Light Refreshments
Bring NEW winter clothing and
items to the event for
the Jewish Communities in Ukraine!
With its deep roots and extensive reach, the JRNU has been providing food, medicine, and other aid to more than 35,000 people each month, not turning anyone away. To further offer hope, aid, and with G-d’s help, gather more supporters, I will be spending the next week working with the JRNU in Berlin (at the temporary location for the Odesa orphanage), and in Odesa. I will share their stories and your encouragement along the way.
Unfortunately, the crisis in Ukraine is not going to end any time soon. Even after the war is over, the humanitarian needs will continue for years to come. The good news is, we can help. By coordinating our efforts we can bring continued hope and support to those in need. I hope you will join me in keeping the Detroit Jewish community engaged in these necessary relief efforts.
I welcome your comments.
