Over the past month, our community has responded admirably to the needs of our Jewish brothers and sisters facing the upheaval of the war in Ukraine, and for that we deeply thank you on behalf of all those who you have helped at this crucial moment in time.
What has become apparent as the war continues, however, is that unfortunately this crisis will not be just a moment in time – we now foresee that the needs of those who are fleeing Ukraine will likely stretch on for years and require a much longer-term investment upon the part of the world and the Jewish community in particular.
Darchei Noam of Glenbrook has chosen to join the Shuls for Ukrainian Jewry campaign - working in conjunction with communities around North America, the OU, RCA, and National Council of Young Israel - to raise funds in support of these long-term needs. We in the Darchei Noam community have set a goal to contribute $3,600. Every cent raised by this campaign will be distributed directly to partners on the ground working to take care of Jewish refugees wherever they are now, and to help them get settled wherever they are going.
