Your help is needed: The UIA Progressive Appeal is supporting the WUPJ Ukraine Crisis Fund

The World Union for Progressive Judaism announced on 17 March that nearly $1.5 million in donations have been raised for its Ukraine Crisis Fund, established to address the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and to support refugees fleeing the country. “This is a tremendous outpouring of support from within and beyond WUPJ’s global network of communities,” said Rabbi Sergio Bergman, WUPJ President. “It reflects a historic mobilisation and response to intense human need, dislocation and trauma within Ukraine and neighboring countries welcoming refugees. We are compelled to sustain life and community in the short and long term — and collectively, we will.”

Funds, so far raised from over 6,000 donors in 26 countries, are being directed across a wide spectrum of existing, deepening and emerging needs, including:

  • Transportation and security for Ukrainians seeking safety across borders;
  • Direct financial assistance to Ukrainian families in desperate need;
  • Support to WUPJ member congregations in Germany and Hungary facilitating the relocation of Ukrainian refugees;
  • Financial, logistical and administrative support of a refugee center in Olesin, Poland, a joint project of WUPJ and the European Union for Progressive Judaism (EUPJ) providing shelter, security, medical attention and mental health support;
  • Educational programs and activities in Poland for refugee children with special needs
