Messages to Rabbi Dukhovny

Messages to Rabbi Dukhovny of Ukraine from the Ohavi Zedek Community, March 2022

Our hearts are with you during this very difficult time and are sending our support along with our prayers – Rabbi Amy and Bob Small

Sending prayers and support to you and all Ukrainians at this terrible time. There has been enough suffering in Ukraine over the years, especially for Jews. Prayers for a quick resolution of this travesty of invasion. – ME, B&ML, B&ML, DL, JL and NL, M&MP

My great-grandmother, who is dear to my heart, grew up on what is now Ukrainian soil. It is the place that I know will feel like home if I ever have the chance to visit. I pray for everyone’s safety and send love. -CR and Family

My mother’s family came to the U.S. from a town somewhere near Kiev. Though I don’t know the name of the town, I hope my good wishes will find their way to you and everyone there who is endangered. -JC

My mother is from Kharkov. She came to the US in 1924 because of hardships there. Now, almost exactly 100 years later, I hope that the Jews in Ukraine can continue to live where they choose in peace. -NB

Sending prayers, hope and a peaceful positive resolution from  these terrible and frightening times. Stay strong, our thoughts are with you.  -AR

My thoughts are with all of the people of Ukraine, as well as the Russian people who oppose the invasion and are being dragged into war. May all be safe, and may peace soon be restored. -SP

We pray for the safety and peace of all of our Jewish brothers and sisters in Ukraine. May peace prevail and may those who are struggling find solace. With prayers, MP

Hoping that this invasion will end soon and hoping for peace and stability for you all- are thoughts and wishes to you. The BK Family

My grandfather Max, was born in Zhmerinka, was fortunate to be able to escape before being conscripted into the Russian army.  But sadly, having to leave his family behind. I pray for all Ukrainian families to be safe and reunited quickly and in peace.  -AC
