Ukraine Residents to Celebrate 3rd Purim at War

Thousands of personal kits of Mishloach Manos have been sent to shluchim across Ukraine to uplift thousands of Jewish families and individuals who will be celebrating Purim under fire for the third time.

Ukrainian Jews will mark a third Purim under crisis. Ahead of Purim, huge trucks set out directly from FJC’s Jewish Relief Network Ukraine (JRNU), carrying thousands of Mishloach Manos shipments to various destinations within Ukraine.

The beautiful packages will reach rabbis and Chabad Shluchim, who lead the Jewish communities, and will be distributed to the many Jews of the country during the Purim holiday.

The shipments include wine, various sweets, hamantaschen, an illustrated Megillah, colorful graggers, and a guide detailing all the holiday’s commandments.

Over the past few days, dedicated volunteers have assembled the packages, which will be delivered to the Jewish communities as part of the festive Purim events during the holiday. The rabbis will hold Megillah readings around the clock, host elaborate Purim meals, and spread joy to the Jewish communities and villages.

Living under continuous threat, Purim events allow the country’s Jews a time of joy and upliftment amidst the situation in the hope that tranquility will return to their lives.

“The personal distribution of Mishloach Manos to every Jew is carried out following the directive of the Lubavitcher Rebbe to bring the joy of Purim to every Jew, even in the most remote place,” the JRNU said.
