Crisis in Ukraine: News and Resources


We’ve worked in Ukraine for decades – but today, the need is different.

The estimated 200,000 Jews living in Ukraine have been profoundly affected by
the political and economic instability that has wracked the country.
Thousands are trapped in conflict zones in the east. Thousands more have fled the
fighting. Federation has allocated over $40 million to our partner agencies on the
ground. But the urgent need continues.

100% of your donation will go to help our Ukranian neighbors.

Here’s where the money will go

  • Aliyah and community security
    To protect those who leave or stay
  • Maintaining critical welfare services
    For those we support day in and day out
  • Assisting internally displaced people in multiple locations
    Aiding Jews in need in 1,000 locations across Ukraine
  • Stockpiling for goods
    Across more than 1000 locations
  • Launching an Aliyah Helpline
    For those who need expedited support
  • Securing temporary housing
    For people in transit, escaping the conflict zones
  • Purchasing satellite phones
    To maintain communications across the region
  • Securing five Jewish schools
    And training staff to manage crisis needs
