Washington Jewish groups stage pro-Ukraine rally


Representatives from 13 synagogues, Hillels and other Jewish groups came together March 16 outside the Russian Embassy in Washington to show support for Ukraine. In addition to the Reconstructionist and the Aleph Renewal movements, whose rabbis were represented at the embassy protest, the Washington Board of Rabbis and the Reform movement also endorsed the public fast and rally.

In front of a crowd of close to 100 people, rabbis and others prayed, sang songs and voiced  support for the Eastern European country that was invaded by neighboring Russia last month.

In addition to Jewish representatives, speakers included Archbishop Borys Gudziak, Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia.
