The world’s leading Jewish International Foundations, Federations, Organizations, and Humanitarian charities have united to support and partner with the Jewish Relief Network Ukraine (JRNU), which is spearheading the evacuation and humanitarian efforts across Ukraine and beyond.
The Jewish Relief Network Ukraine (JRNU), operating under the Federation of Jewish Communities (FJC) as its fiscal sponsor, works closely with more than 150 Chabad Rabbis and Jewish communities across Ukraine to sustain individuals and families in crisis and help them rebuild their lives.
Two 24-hour hotlines, operated by the JRNU, field thousands of requests for help while 48 regional coordinators in 35 cities rely on an established network of pharmacies, medical organizations, grocery stores, and soup kitchens, to provide families and individuals with the lifesaving essentials they require.
These essentials include life-saving medications for 4,000 individuals, urgent medical care for 6,400 people, and grocery store coupons and hot meals for more than 20,000 men, women, and children. This is in addition to the shelter provided to over 15,000 people since the beginning of the crisis, through renting community centers, campsites, and hotels.
The Global Coalition of Agencies, partnering with the JRNF and enabling its tremendous activity, consists of the most prominent and professional bodies in the Jewish world and beyond. These include the International Fellowship of Christian and Jews (IFCJ), the Jewish Federation of North Africa, the Israeli Minister of Diaspora Affairs, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, Chabad.org, Americares, Isra-Aid, the Orthodox Union, the Global Jewish Assistance and Relief Network, as well as additional agencies. In addition, thousands of caring individuals and families from across the globe actively support JRNF’s mission to provide urgent life-saving support to Ukraine’s Jewish population.
Heading the Advisory Committee for JRNU, are Rabbi Shmuel Kaminezki – Chief Rabbi of Dnipro, Ukraine; Rabbi Pinchas Vishedsky – Chief Rabbi of Kyiv, Ukraine; Rabbi Moshe Moskovitz – Chief Rabbi of Kharkiv, Ukraine; Rabbi Shlomo Wilhelm – Chief Rabbi of Zhytomyr, Ukraine; and Rabbi Avraham Wolff – Chief Rabbi of Odesa, Ukraine.
