Help Ukraine:

Dear friends,
The Russian attack on Ukraine has plunged Europe into a humanitarian crisis. The Jewish Federation network has promised to raise $20 million to meet immediate and short-term needs, including:
  • Temporary housing for those fleeing violence
  • Evacuations and assistance for displaced populations
  • Food, medication and supplies
  • Purchasing satellite phones to maintain vital communications
  • Continuing care for homebound seniors
  • Security for Jewish institutions
Ukraine is home to more than 200,000 Jews – many of whom are impoverished and/or elderly. Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford is committed to supporting this effort and we are asking for your help today.
Whenever and wherever one Jew is threatened, we are all threatened. 100% of your donation will go to Ukraine relief. Please give as you are able.
We are so grateful for your compassion and generosity.
