Along with the rest of the world, the Jewish community of Greater Boston has been anxiously monitoring the remarkable and frightening events in Ukraine over the last few weeks. For more than twenty years, our community has been in partnership with the Jewish community in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, helping to rebuild Jewish life after the fall of the Soviet Union. We join our partners in Dnepropetrovsk in mourning the tragic deaths in Kiev last week and in welcoming the cessation of violence in the capital.
