Ukraine Emergency Appeal


 Help us to help those in need. Jewish Federation Of Western CT's Foundation has donated $750 to help launch this appeal in our community.

The unrest in Ukraine has heightened security concerns for World ORT’s four schools in the country. Amid the instability there have been signs of an increase in anti-Semitic rhetoric and recrimination. In addition, criminals set out to exploit the situation and the ORT Kiev Technology Lyceum community has been unnerved by the appearance of suspicious people in the neighborhood. World ORT urgently needs your support to meet increased security needs and keep our students and staff safe – today and tomorrow.
