Since the onset of the war in February 2022, the Shul in Podil , Kyiv has been busier than ever. The Shul, which serves as the Main Synagogue of Kyiv and the seat of the Chief Rabbi, has become a haven for Jewish refugees from all over Ukraine. People who’ve had to run and find shelter now have a roof over their heads on the shul campus, kosher meals three times a day, minyanim, Shabbos and Yom Tov all taken care of.

Around Sukkos time of this year, the Russians began to bomb Ukrainian infrastructure - including the electric grid. As a result, thousands are left without heat, without water, and without electricity. The Shul in Kyiv has set up a generator so those in need have where to go. Freezing families come to recharge, hungry children come for a filling meal, all amid the sounds of Torah and tefillah which have never ceased.

Additionally, the Shul has an assisted-living facility for Holocaust survivors so the elderly are ensured proper care, and a school for children which has reopened recently. All of these places have armed security guards, which during a time of war, is more important - and more expensive - than ever.

People in Ukraine are feeling lost, with no place to go and no place to call home. To fill this need, in April 2022, a DP Camp was opened in Budapest where Yiddishkeit is thriving. Hundreds of families have fled to Budapest where they are well taken care of and can make a new life for themselves. The refugees receive three meals a day, they have a shul where they can pray and learn along with a school for the young ones. Youth groups and women’s groups meet frequently and give much needed strength and hope to people who need it.
