The Talmud tell us that saving 1 life equates to saving the entire world.
Today, there are over 250 families from my beloved community in Chernigov Ukraine, who sadly were forced to flee their homes.
These are women, children, sickly and elderly, all on the run, and regrettably, in need to start over!
But how do you simply start over?
How do you replace decades of Jewish life, Jewish growth, in Chernigov?
While we dream of the day when we will be able to return to our home town, we are grateful to be safe, with our families, and out of harms way.
Today, I am turning to you, ALL of Klal Yisroel, to find it in your hearts to join me on this mission, to help my dear congregants in their quest for a better life!
How much money would you need to simply hit "Reset" and start over?
I am asking you to help me see to it that my friends and congregants can travel to safety, and perhaps even establish some remanence of the life they left behind, until we can all be together again!
With our deepest thanks and appreciation,
Rabbi Yisroel and Aliza Silberstein Chernigov, Ukraine
