Helping to Save and Protect Ukrainian Jews

Since Russia’s wide-ranging attack on Ukraine, which started on February 24, 2022, Keren Hayesod and our strategic partner, The Jewish Agency for Israel, have been working around the clock to provide critical assistance during this humanitarian crisis.

Each day, the needs increase and change as the situation continues to unfold and thousands more are forced to flee Ukraine in seek of safety. They are leaving behind everything, walking many miles in harsh conditions to find food and shelter.

Keren Hayesod will continue to work together with the Jewish Agency to ensure that every Jewish individual or family fleeing Ukraine can find safety in Israel. We will also work to support initiatives that are helping those who are staying behind.

Part of our work is also to share with all of you the stories that we receive from the frontlines in Ukraine, as well as from bordering countries, including our emergency efforts to help Ukraine’s Jews.

See below for the latest information and stories:
