Connect with Ukraine

October 6


After almost half a year of war in Ukraine, JCCs continue to provide crucial aid to refugees. Commonpoint Queens will be participating in the JCC Global High Holidays Moral Support Campaign to send online messages of support for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We have been partnered with the Cherkasy Regional Charitable Jewish Foundation, Hesed Dorot, located in Cherkasy, Ukraine.

We welcome all teens October 6 from 7PM-8:30PM at the Sam Field Center to put together messages, letters, and pictures to send! Hesed Dorot will reciprocate with messages back to us!
