A Jewish Voice from Ukraine

Masha is one of Ukraine’s energetic and committed young Jewish leaders. As a volunteer with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), a Federation partner agency, she helps bolster Jewish identity and provide for the social welfare of her country’s most vulnerable Jews.


Masha and JDC’s work has been especially meaningful—and necessary—amid ongoing political and economic instability in Ukraine. Listen to Masha discuss how she and her peers, together with JDC, are ensuring the well-being of elderly Jews in the embattled eastern city of Donetsk.
