For Jews Fleeing Ukraine, Passover Takes on New Meaning

posted on April 13, 2022

Deepa Bharath of the Associated Press reports that many Jews fleeing Ukraine are finding new meaning in the holiday of Passover with a modern-day exodus of their own. Jewish organizations are hosting special Passover Seders for the refugees near the Ukrainian border, while other organizations are sending Passover supplies directly to the Jews remaining in Ukraine. Chen Tzuk, who works for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, said, “Passover is something familiar and basic for Jewish people. For refugees who have left everything behind, it’s important to be able to celebrate this holiday with honor and dignity.”
