Warsaw Jews donate food to Ukraine

Follow j. on   and 

The Jewish community of Warsaw donated food to Jews celebrating Passover in western Ukraine.

The 200-pound shipment arrived in Lviv on April 11 and was transported to Ivano-Frankivsk, a nearby city whose Jewish community experienced a shortage of holiday goods, said Poland’s chief rabbi, Michael Schudrich.

Since the fall of communism, the Jewish communities of Poland and Ukraine have received millions of dollars in aid from the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and other Jewish welfare bodies. — jta
