Nearly 2,500 Jews are displaced, many in danger today...
Help them now with your donation to Federation's Ukraine Assistance Fund.
Nearly a year has passed since pro-Russian separatists began battling Ukrainian forces in the eastern part of the country, and once again Jews are in danger.
To date, Federations have raised and allocated more than $2.5 million to provide services to Ukrainian Jews and support aliyah for those wanting to relocate - learn more here.
But the community’s urgent unmet needs continue to grow. Please enable Portland to do its fair share to help the Ukrainian Jews. This crisis speaks to the most fundamental reasons why the international network of Jewish Federations are so critical.
We will not turn away. We are making a difference.
