UUJS has put an intense month behind them and is now looking forward to October. In the last month, members of UUJS participated in the annual commemoration of Babi-Yar, one of the largest single mass killings of the Holocaust. They walked along the symbolic “Road of Death” with the members of Jewish community, where Elie Wiesel stated: “Eyewitnesses say that for months after the killings the ground continued to spurt geysers of blood.”
Members of UUJS also met with the delegation of the AJC solidarity mission to Ukraine led by President Stanley Bergman and Executive Director David Harris.
