Jewish situation in Ukraine

By way of Cornel Fleming
Hi all! Last night went to a meeting on Ukraine organized by World Jewish
Relief. One of the speakers(via Skype) was David Fishman,Professor of Jewish
History at the Jewish Theological Seminary ,New York…an expert on Ukraine.
We also had the Ukr. Ambassador. The election results…Svoboda wiped out.
Jews currently appreciated..many were prominent on the Maidan,some who went
to Israel and have served in the IDF have returned to fight, the Bishop of
Dnepropetrovsk came to the Jewish Community centre for a visit,the Deputy
Prime Minister is a guy by the name of Groysman…a very upbeat
presentation!
