In this week’s message I reflect on my recent trip to Poland. It’s hard to believe that five days can create such a range of emotions. Today, I’d like to share the story of one Ukrainian refugee family, and how because of you, because of all of us, they are safe and on the path to a new life.
This is just one small memory from a trip filled with them. And it’s a powerful testament to the importance of our work at the Alliance and the importance of your support. Seeing what I saw last week in Poland, I could not be more grateful.
Until next time, I wish you a safe, peaceful, and joyous Shabbat.
