The Chief Rabbi of Ukraine, Moshe Reuven Azman, was under fire from Russian artillery in Kherson. Our brave community leader came to Kherson to support local people, evacuate those willing to leave and bring a lot of aid to the region.

Recall while thousands of civilians were sleeping, Russian forces blew up the Kakhovska dam at 2.50 on the night of June 6, 2023. Around 80 towns and villages could be affected by the flooding as a result. The water already came to Kherson city and flooded one of the city’s districts. More than 300 000 people are now in danger. Nova Kakhovka is fully flooded as a result of blowing the Kakhovska dam. Since Russian forces control part of the region’s territory, local people need a chance or way for a proper evacuation.
